Let Your Home Be Your Heart

  • What I hope for my readers and for all keepers of the nest, is that they embrace their homes with their heart and all of the passion that it holds. I want them to know that they can decorate on a limited budget by seeing things in new ways; by rescuing the broken and transforming the ugly. I hope that they flaunt their favorite color and decorate their life with it. I hope that their homes feel like one giant hug that welcomes them each and every time they walk through their front door. More than anything I want everyone to have their own home-sweet-home dream come true! xo, Kim

Hi Kim,
I cannot believe I am the first to comment on your new entry!! The book cozies are too cute. It makes me want to make some for my favorite books. I always get inspiration when I visit Daisy Cottage. You have a very special sister that would take the time to make things for you. You're a lucky gal. Come visit my page and see the new pillow I made when you get time.


The book cozies are adorable and such a good use for fabric remnants. They suit you!
Hugs, Rhondi


Such clean, fresh, whimsical colors in your book covers! You have a very nice sibling in Jill. :-) Sue

Lavender Dreams

I love the book cozies! I would have fun making those! What a great idea! I visited Kelee and she came by Lavender cottage for a visit! What a sweetheart!


These book covers are very cute. I have already decided to make some for the books in bedroom, including Bible, so that I don't have so many dark colours around.If you want some gorgeous fabric I am having a giveaway including possibly teatowels which would make lovely covers. Cherrie

Just checking in..well I do every day~LOl
Love the book cozies.....wonderful idea~wish I could sew.

They are the perfect your already remarkable home and style :)


Kim, those are adorable, and soooo you!! I may have to dust off my sewing machine and make a few for myself!


cute cozies! I wanted to say thanks so much for introducing me to the Barn & Stable. Visited there this weekend and LOVED IT! A lovely afternoon with 5 others very close to my heart. The Back Porch is so darned cute - loved the way you order and the picnic baskets. Someone over there is a merchandising genius!! A wonderful place to discover. :)

Daisy Cottage

Oh Lori, I'm SO glad you had a great time at the Barn & Stable! I'd love to get back out there soon!

Adorable!! She is talented just like her sister! Hugs!


What an adorable idea, and a generous and talented sister! I'm lucky to have a wonderful sister too. She has made me a quilt the last two Christmases! I'm truly blessed!


Those book cosies are gorgeous! And you didn't even have to make them. SCORE!

 sheri howard

What a cute name for your book covers! I love your happy blog. I don't have it on my favorites list because I go to your blog when I need a happy thought. It is like having a place to go that is not your everyday stuff, so I check out what you are doing every once in a while. Thanks, I love to visit you...I lOVE your house.

Susie Homemaker

We get the best things from our sisters, don't we...mostly it is the love that means so much! Your cozy's are perfect for Daisy Cottage...and you!
I have added the katillac Shack to my favorites...The love letter was the cutest! I have to tell you though, My little Cody is jealous...I think I'll knit him a new sweater to cheer him up...



What adorable Book Cozies your sister made.
Does she have a blog?


Your sis did a wonderful job! I love how she worked rick rack into the book cozies! Any chance she'd do a tutorial on the book cozies! Love your cuppa and your little cozy place to sit with your book!


Those are absolutely beautiful. What a clever way to brighten a bookshelf!


What adorable book cozies! And I think Maggie & Oliver Wendell make the cutest couple :-) Happy Earth Day.


I think the letter from Oliver will surely win Miss Maggie's heart. So heartfelt, and he has such soulful eyes. How can she resist?
The cozy idea is so cute - would be great for those journals I seem to write year after year!


Adorable! And so perfect for DC!

That love letter to Miss Maggie cracked me up! Kelee is so funny!

Kelly Long

Those book cozies are so cute! Does your sister want to adopt me, I sure could use some of those!LOL(;

Mermaid Debbie

Hi Kim,
Would love to have instruction on how to make those book covers, they are so sweet!

Jeanette Carlstrom

OH!!! I would love instructions as well...or just have your sister for keeps :) My sister lives all the way over in Sweden and I miss her every day. I have to try to make these even without instructions :)... Take care

Elaine L.

Thank you for recommending Kelee's blog. She is just the inspiration I need, right now.

The book cozies are so cute! It would be cute to make them to cover notebooks, too.


Susan Ramey Cleveland

The book cozies are adorable. How thoughtful of your sister to make them for you and Daisy Cottage.

Daisy Cottage

Thank you everyone!
I'll ask Jill if she will come back here and share how she made these... hmm - maybe she will make one for a future giveaway???

The Decorated House

Hi Dear Kim~
Does Jill have her date planned yet to come over and sew for me? :)

Those are darling.


Did your sister have a pattern for the book covers? If not would she share the directions? I would love to make a few as gifts for some family and friends. (I will not be selling them) Thank you for the wonderful read. Your blog and Miss Maggie always make me smile. I am the 'mother' of 5 beautiful girls myself. Doxies are great. I own 2. Blessings. Roxie


LOVE the book covers! I would also love to see how she made them! They would be great birthday and Christmas gifts! I also have to tell you how much I love the music on your blog! It is a perfect touch! I really enjoy listening to it!

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

  • "It's people like yourself that make everything beautiful and worthwhile." ~ Fifi

Thank You Ida!

  • Kim I just wanted to thank you again for allowing us into your sweet home! I absolutely loved being there and looking around with you. Your hospitality and sweet spirit make the home even more beautiful! Thanks for reminding me that one day I too will have my "dream come true!" ~ Ida - MOPS Member

Thank You Jane!

  • "I just discovered your blog and am blown away with the comfortable, almost nostalgic feel of it...almost like finding a long-lost friend after many years apart...somehow familiar, but all so exciting and new." ~ Jane

Thank You Dena!

  • "Kim, I love your blog. I so appreciate you sharing every day. I miss you when you're gone. Losing my dear sweet baby boy in Iraq has made me treasure life and those so dear to me. Reading your blog is such therapy for me. You have made me treasure the finer things in life that I use to overlook. Birds singing, flowers blooming, my home and all of the treasures within it. I'm not sure that I ever looked at a teacup or saucer and saw such detail and beauty in it." ~ Dena

Thank You Grace!

  • "I would like to let you know what a joy it is to wake up each morning and read your delightful blog. I always feel as if you are speaking directly to me. Since I was diagnosed with an immune disease a year ago I wanted only to read positive and very inspiring blogs and your blog was the first I found. I think maybe the good Lord meant for me to find your blog and since then it has been nothing but smiles all around. I have tried very hard to stay positive about this disease and very up beat. I know that there is no cure and I have accepted this, but reading things with a positive message and filled with so much love helps. This is where you come in and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart and to let you know how very much you and Miss Maggie are loved." ~ Grace

Thank You Francesca!

  • "Oh my! I have just stepped into heaven. A nostalgic, magic, getaway place where folk love one another and life is sweet. Kim, you will probably never know just how many hearts you have touched with your site. " ~ Francesca

Thank You Kathy!

  • "I visited my friends with their tasteful beige homes and sometimes questioned if there was anyone else in this world who loved the things I did. Then I found Daisy Cottage and a whole community of other women who shop the side of the road, paint their furniture fun colors, and aren't afraid to fill their homes with touches of whimsy and fun. What a relief! We aren't alone! I'm not alone. Thanks for all your inspiration and for confidently sharing your home and the idea that we can have fun with our decorating. I never get tired of visiting here Kim." ~ Kathy

Thank you Rue!

  • "That hankie is like you and your blog Kim. In the middle of all of the other beautiful hankies, it's the one that stands out and makes you feel at home." ~ Rue

Thank You Jeanette!

  • "Sigh.... between your music, red and yellow mellow feeling and wonderful writing I just feel so calm. What would I do without you in the morning with my cup of coffee." ~ Jeanette

Thank You Lenna!

  • "My eyes have been opened to a world I never knew existed. Such vibrant creativity, such caring community: it literally takes my breath away. After so much loneliness and isolation it is overwhelming to me that such a world even exists. In time I hope to be able to fill my garden of life with lovely, loving friends instead of the weeds of loneliness. Until that time lace tablecloths will come out of storage, music and lovely scents will fill the air of this home. And I shall visit the Daisy Cottage when I feel despair raise its dark, obscuring head, for I know from experience, that it is ever lurking behind that next bout of pain and weakness. Your kind and generous response has strengthened my resolve, you have helped me more than you will ever know, my new-found friend." ~ Lenna

Thank You Rose!

  • "What I love best about Daisy Cottage is Kim. I love the way you appreciate every good thing in life and embrace joy in every moment." ~ Rose

Thank You Lisa!

  • "Here's how I can best describe into words how your blog made me feel. You know when you wake up in the morning and there's an early morning thunderstorm and every room in your house is as dark as night? Then, the rain and thunder stop and the sun comes shining through all the windows and you just know it's going to be a beautiful, sunshine day? Well, that's how finding Dear Daisy Cottage made me feel. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Kim. You blessed my day and may God do the same for you." ~ Lisa B.

Thank you Pamela!

  • "I am so touched by your words and photographs. Whether in happy or sad times, you inspire my heart and soul. We all need each other's light and you offer us that dose of sunshine." ~ Pamela

Thank you Joy!

  • "Your blog has helped me start to see the beauty in life again." ~ Joy

Thank You Anne!

  • "Thank you for your wonderful blog. I have been "lurking" but had to share with you how much you have helped me embrace the fun of decorating. I came to your blog looking for pictures to inspire me as I redecorate my house with cottage style. Today I was so tangled up in doing it "right" that it was really depressing me. I visited your blog again for some fresh ideas and came away realizing that there is no "right." Just me being me and enjoying my home! I am laying here in bed with tears in my eyes - tears of happiness that it is okay to be me and let that shine through in my house and what I wear and what I make with my hands. You are God's gift to me today and I thank Him and you." ~ Anne

Thank You Tracy!

  • "Your words and thoughts of encouragement help me see myself with value. You are a blessing. Thank you." ~ Tracy

Thank you Karen!

  • "Your humble spirit has not changed through your many posts here in Blogland. You have been blessed with a special gift and I am very thankful you share it with us." ~ Karen

Thank You Betty Jo!

  • "You truly inspire me to do whatever I can in my own little nest. I've always been an artistic dreamer, but you've enlarged my dreams with your way of seeing." ~ Betty Jo
