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

Thanks for the heads up! Will definitely go visit. Always love meeting new people. From the pic, she looks like a full of life, fun loving person, and her pup, well who wouldn't fall in love. ;)

Looks like destiny that you two would find each other...what a colorful home...there are so many cute ideas just in these pictures..can't wait to check it out. Oh and the adorable is that???



Kim - I just popped over from Kelee's sight to say WOW! You two really are soul sisters! I've enjoyed your blog and will be sure to pop back in soon - with my favorite color in hand!


I've been visiting Kelee at her blog and am so impressed with her! Love her Habitat projects and am hoping to get involved right here in Birmingham! Thanks for sharing her story Kim!

Daisy Cottage

Nice to meet you Yvonne!!


Hi Kim
Even before I visit Kelee I know I'm going to love her. Just the colors of her house alone win me over. How wonderful for you to get to know her. Stop by my blog today if you have time. I think you will enjoy it.
Hugs, Rhondi


Kim - thank you so much!! as you know, I'm going through some "syuff" right now, and Kelee's site is such inspiration - just waht I needed!! Thank you!!

Kim, thanks for introducing us to such a creative lady! Don't you just love the color of her home? That won me over right away!
Hope you have a wonderful day!

SusanG and my typos. That is of course "stuff" I am going through, not "syuff" (whatever that might be!), and is just WHAT I needed. :)

Good Morning KIM and Daisies!!!!

Kim your Room at the Katillac Shack is SOOO magnificent! I keep walking in it over and over!!! Your use of color and placement is perfect. You have a gift for balance and integration. Even though it is cottage eclectic with lots of materials and influences your consistent balance and use of color is glue that holds together your 3-D picture! The photography is delightful--lighting so natural. What a gift it is to have YOU in the Kat Shack! KIM is in THE HOUSE!

Your readers are like you --you all are full of heart, creativity and wisdom. Thank-you for the comments here and over at The Katillac Shack! I am learning so much from you all.

Here's to a day that is like the tulips blooming in the yard here: bright, joyful and in celebration. I love you Kim, Daisies and Maggie. And Daisy Cottage-- The Katillac Shack is yours always!


Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

How fun! I love new links! I'm off to visit her site now. Thanks for sharing Kim!

Betty Jo

OMGosh! Kelee is wonderful. The video made me laugh and cry. She and her work is such a needed light in our world. I know personally that without creativity over the past six months, actually throughout most of my life, I couldn't have made it to now. Thanks so much sweet Kim for sharing Kelee with us. ♥

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you 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 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!

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
