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

This morning, my Mickie was lying on her back looking very Maggie-Like, and my husband looked at her and said, "Yes, you are MUCH PRETTIER than that old What's Her Name (meaning Maggie) on the computer!" Mickie looked very happy about the whole situation, but I ask you, how many husbands remember the dogs on the blogs we visit? Your Maggie is Famous!


Kim - I love reading your blog with its colorful charm! Please enter my name in your drawing. Happy Easter!


Rochelle Moya

Helen Nordseth

As I am making stuffed eggs for 40 for my Easter Family dinner contribution (Susan Branch's yummy recipe), that egg dish would certainly be welcomed in my kitchen right now! Enjoy your blog and magazine articles...warm and cheery!

Patty Boyd

Maggie looks precious in her Easter finery. I have my fingers crossed in hopes of winning the drawing. I'm thrilled your articles are published again. That must be an awesome feeling. If I don't win, I will be sure to purchase both issues. I love the collection you have put together for your drawing. Daisy Cottage gives me such inspiration for my own home.


Oh wow ... your generosity refreshes my spirit! Honestly I gasped when I saw the goodies you are giving away. My sis and I collect egg trays for goodness sake and I was just telling my mom how fun it would be to start collecting soup tureens to which she added, "oh yes!" heart pounding because of her own love for soup tureens. So yes, you can imagine I did indeed gasp at your lovely give-a-way. Now I'm holding my breath with anticipation and excitment.


What a wonderful little giveaway package you have assembled there. Please add my name to the pot!
Hope Maggie gets a nice visit from the Easter Bunny!


I love your blog! Please enter me.


Wow, what a generous giveaway, and I would be thrilled to win! I'm looking for fun, simple and inexpensive ideas on how to transform our master bedroom into a romantic retreat. Since times have been tight on our budget, I haven't renewed any decorating magazines. Thanks for this opportunity.

Happy Easter,
Brenda from San Diego

Hi Sweet Kim,
I was by the Princess Fifi's blog earlier this evening and gave my input. I love your writing style and know your features will be lovely and of course, Fifi's house... I can not wait to see again. Hoping Maggie doesn't have to wait much longer for the Easter Bunny, but don't let her eat too many eggs. No tummy aches for precious pooches. I tell Zeke that all the time. Happy Easter, Kim!

Barbara Leone

Hi Kim,

Congratulations on your stories that were published! That must be so exciting for you! I would love to win your give away. Reading your blog really relaxes me...not sure if it is the music or the colors. The way you write gives me the impression that you are a relaxed person as well enjoying every moment of life. Have a wonderful Easter!


Great Easter giveaway.


How do you ever read all these comments? I am continuing to read and am enjoying every post. Thank you for your inspiration!


Kim I'm so happy to hear about your articles in the magazines. You are so worthy of this honor. I can't wait to see these magazines. Oh my gosh yes please enter me in your give away. What a great grouping of lovely things. Have a wonderful and blessed Easter. I hope the Easter Bunny brings something special for Maggie too. She is such a sweetie! RJ


ooh, i'd love a chance to win. Deana


What an extraordinarily generous giveaway! Thank you so much for the chance to win. Here's hoping.


You are just the sweetest :) Have a beautiful Easter weekend! xo

Lady Dorothy

Happy Easter to you, too!

Oh, I hope I win! If not, though, I want to buy the magazines so I can tell everyone "my friend" wrote these stories!


What a lovely collection you are giving away. Thank you for such a lovely place to pop in and peak around. Happy Easter.

P.S. Apparently the Rustoleum "Jade" spray paint is only a United states color...I was unable to obtain it here in Canada...I settled with "Blue Sky" for my new little chair. Thanks for the idea.
I hope I can get those magazines here in Canada...I will be looking tomorrow.

Bobbi Campbell


You are an inspiration! I hope that you have a blessed Easter. Please include me in your drawing.

And, I love you too! ♥

Kim, You sweet thing you! How do you think of all this fabulous stuff. I very rarely comment on a person's blog to receive "giveaway" items. However this time, I just HAD too! I see my name etched on every.single.item! So I think the random generator thingie is going to pick me!!!! But I scanned the comments, and I believe there are others who are counting on that too! Kim I am so delighted that your articles are being published regularly! I finally purchased the Country Sampler home tour mag., and loved seeing Daisy Cottage. Happy Easter to you and your family and sweet little I'm going to hop hop hop away and help my little princess dye a few eggs and stuff candy in some plastic ones and get ready for the huge egg hunt we are having tomorrow! xo rachel
P.S. sorry for being so chatty!

Lisa ~A Cottage to Me

How adorable is Miss Maggie with her daisy scarf on! Too cute! What lovely things you are giving away. I collect egg plates and we have several old doorknobs that could be considered a collection too. I love birdhouses and magazines...well, love them as well.

After a long stormy Thursday night in Arkansas. It was wonderful to see what great things you were doing on Good Friday. What a sweet egg plate and I love Maggie's scarf. Bo, my lab has a bright yellow scarf for Easter Sunday. I hope you and your family have a safe and Happy Easter.

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
