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

AW Kim,
I wanted Maggie. . she is the best and I look forward to finding out what she is doing next. You are wonderful to include 'the boss.'

They make dishes with egg holes for the deviled eggs? I'm old enough to be your mother and I didn't know that. I would love it. Everything looks so wonderful and fun. I have been introduced to so many new magazines on blogs. . .and love that my fellow bloggers are part of them.
Thank you and God Bless


Congratulations on the published articles! Maggie is a dear! You really have such a sweet blog!

What a wonderful giveaway. Your blog is always so inspiring and it's always so fun to get a peek at Maggie. She's just darling. Ü


What a nice giveaway!! I hope I win!!!LOL Doris

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

I've already read both magazines. I was thrilled to see your name too! How exciting for you!


such a sweet Maggie.
you know Kim, there is a commercial on TV around here for Coldwell Realty...and it's not local, I think it's a nationwide commercial. And it shows a bunch of different homes in the beginning and one of them looks just like you home!
I would love to win your giveaway....and you can include Miss Maggie too :)


Kim, Maggie is stylin' in her daisy scarf! How cute is that?!! Congratulations on your articles in Romantic Country AND Cottage Style! Have a very blessed Easter~



Hi, Kim -
What a fabulous give-away! Yes, please add my name. Maggie looks so cute, as always. My little Joey 'graduated' to a big dog collar this week. Being a boy he likes his new blue camoflauge collar and his special nametag. Incase he forgets who he is! He would sure to come see Maggie! Happy Easter weekend to you!

Kristy Tukis

I hope the Easter Bunny brings Maggie something special.. Happy Easter!


Lea Harper

How thoughtful. Please pick me! LOL!



Happy Easter! I love glass knobs. You are on my list of favorite blogs so I saw your update right away. I guess I'm just one of many followers for a reason. Love this blog. Linda


Happy Easter Kim! ~Mandy

Annelies Hill

Daisy Cottage is so inspiring!


Oh I need that

Pls enter me and thanks for the chance...

Happy Easter to you dear Kim,
xo Kathy :)


Kim, my first thought when I saw this post was, "I hope Maggie is the prize." Then I read your first line and my heart deflated. I can fully understand, though, why you would not include her in the prize package. And what a lovely prize it is. You are so generous... and so determined to get us all into Spring-mode. XO

Becky G.

Okay, Kim! If I had chosen a bunch of goodies for myself, I promise I couldn't have picked better! How lovely they are, and how sweet you are! Becky G.

PS - Please pick me! {lol}


What a fun giveaway! I'd love to read your stories, plus all the other fun spring articles. Your home is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing!


What a fabulous contest and prizes! I will have a hard time waiting till Wednesday, I want to run right out and buy those magazines right now to see your articles!
I am collecting glass door knobs :)
So far I have three and need a few more before I can replace my plain brass ones with the glass. The first one is from my late grannys house, it was rescued before they tore her house down. I cant wait to replace my bathroom door knob with hers. So many memories of being a little girl and getting in trouble for trying to peek in through the lock at who was in the bathroom. I was an imp!




I love your blog and I also absolutely love the song that's playing every time I view your blog! Happy Easter!

Suzanne Gallagher

I look forward to your blog each and every morning.

Thanks for the look into your beautiful home.

By the way, what great music, it brings back many memories.

Happy Easter!


My,my! Maggie is ready for the Easter Parade in her vintage hankie finery! Happy Easter, Maggie! And if you catch that Easter Bunny, be nice!

I love to come to your blog because the music reminds me of my teenage years. My husband asks me to turn the volume up when I am on your blog! Thanks for the memories!

Have a great Easter!


Jeanette Carlstrom

Happy Easter!!! If I am not the lucky winner I will run down to Borders to get those magazines. Thanks


Have a blessed Easter:) Maggie just makes me smile. She is so trendy!


Hi Kim,
I know that I don't comment everyday, but I just want you to know in my "hurried up life", in the evening, I check only a few sites, yours, Tina's at Cherry Hill and Romantic Home. You always bring my spirits up. You have a such an uplifting spirit and I thank you for that! That is a true gift to me. Thank you for always being there and sharing your home with us! Hugs, Rosemary~

Cindy Allen

This is actually my first time to ever post a comment. Maybe I'll have beginners luck on my side.

Love your blog. Your home is darling and your photographs are stunning. I just recently entered the blog world and didn't find your blog until a few days ago. I am now checking each day to see what you have added.

Thank you for all the time and effort you put into welcoming your readers into your home and life.


Hi Kim
You always have the greatest giveaways! I really think I am going to win this one! My hubby loves devilled eges and it would be such fun to have a special plate for them and of course I love the blue. Congratualtions on having articles in 2 magazines this month. I am so happy for you that you are getting to use your writing gift and get paid for it.
Happy Easter
Hugs, Rhondi


What a generous giveaway, Kim. Congrats on the articles! I have already been on Fifi's blog and have left some, I hope, helpful comments x


Thank you for entering me in your magazine giveaway. I love your blog and also enjoy obsessing over (& over) the Country Sampler Magazine tour of Daisy Cottage (found it on EBay)! Still working on convincing hubby that the kitchen walls NEED to be red:) Any advice would be appreciated!

Happy Easter!

We'd shower her with love and affection up here in the northeast!! (I'm only kidding, of course!

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!
