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

Hello Kim, yes could not resist to that awesome pillow! It looks just perfect on your red polka dot chair. Very cute!


Love your 76 cent tea cups! Great find!
The white pillow is perfect too! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


I love it all~~~The cups are adorable, which Goodwill do you go to? I go to Brandon, Ruskin, and one on Rt 54 in Pasco~I'm getting to know all of them lol.

I'm off to visit Teresa next
Have a great Friday


OHMYGOSH...that pillow is perfect...I need to check and see if she'll make one that says 1898! Lovely photos today!


Those cups are cheery and I love the ball fringe too! Isn't Anthropology fabulous?

Everything looks adorable, I love that pillow and the teacups (;


Those little tea cups are just the cutest things! What a find. Actually, what a steal.

Very cool stuff! I especially love the pillow, I think I may make one for my little bungalow. I think 1927 would look good stamped on a pillow, don't you? Hope you enter me in your giveaway. I would love to have something from Daisy Cottage in my home. Hugs, ~cindy s~

Hi Kim,

Your sweet little cups were fabulous Goodwill finds! I love the orange fringe on your dishtowel :-)


All of your finds are wonderful. I would be hard to resist any of them. I love to go to GW and see what treasures they have, and your cups are gorgeous. Love the pillow and the other finds also. Hugs, Marty


Hi Kim,
I bought a towel with fringe on it from Anthropologie a few months and it is hanging on my stove, I couldn't resist either. I adore that pillow. Have a wonderful weekend.



Oh my! Those tea cups are too, TOO cute!


I love a day of thinks we can't resist, and yours are great. I do especially love the postcard.


Where do you put all the things you get ! And..who dusts all of it !
It's very pretty.


Hi Kim,

The Daisy ... such a happy flower! :D
Love the cups and the postcard ... WOW!


What a great find. I love the tea cups. Your blog is such a joy!

Sara at Be Still and Know

Kim....of course I'm loving it all! That pillow..*sigh* perfect. And IS so hard to resist when it comes to Anthropologie :) :)


Kindred spirits - I just know it! I love EVERYTHING!!!



Love, love the chair with the red/white polka dots! I'm a lover of polka dots. And the pillow loos so cool sitting on it. I enjoy Teresa's kitchen towels.



You have such an eye, and I love what your friends gave you, too! That pillow is perfect (love the crispness against your primary colors), and I love the postcard that is so perfect for you! :-)

Sending much love from the netherlands. I had wanted to get to a place we both know and love this weekend for a HS graduation and my godson's birthday (both), but I caught some sort of bug and can't make it. I'm SO disappointed. So I have been piddling around here, trying to keep from being stir crazy with so much I really need to do. LOL!

Love to you...


Sheila :-)


And no, it's netherlands without a capital "N"... what I meant was hinterlands, and I'm just hurrying and said the other. Mrs. Mallaprop rides again! ;-)

Richele Drummond

Kim, Your blog reminds me that there is no place like home and reminds me to really see all the blessings that I have in my family including & esp my furry family. Love you for that, thank you Lady!

There's that red and white polka dotted upholstered rocker that I so love! You have me beat. I bought glasses (blue cobalt) at Walmart for 77 cents each. You have me beat by one cent on your buy!

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

I love that pillow so much, and I'm wondering if it is your address, or the year your house was built? Either way, I want to make one with the year our house was built, 1926, to go on our porch swing. Love that towel too, and the cups. I never find anything at Goodwill!
Happy Weekend!


I love the cups! Is there a pattern name on the bottom? You find the greatest things!


Of course I'm going to ask that my name be entered in..My name is Vintage, didn't I tell you before? lol...

I wrote about you on my blog the other day and what a blessing you have been in my life...


I 'fixed' my fireplace using this delightful magazine to follow along with the pictures they had in it..YEPPER,,your pictures..LOL.

I told hubby.."hon,,I KNOW this lady. Oh my goodness, I know her".

When I first saw the pictures I thought to myself,' geez, this looks so familiar'

Have a great weekend.

Tomorrow is yard saling here and I'm so excited..YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..vintage goodies,,,here comes mama!!


Your Goodwill is better than mine LOL. I never find anything cheaper than 99 cents. Those cups are really cute! I just discovered Anthropologie for the first time two weeks ago! I love that place now!

All the best,

Love the little cups... I will be right over for hot tea! Have a fun filled week-end!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio & The Comforts of Home

So many wonderful old and new things Kim! I love them all. Those cups are adorable.


Hi Kim, your blog is ALWAYS so exciting and interesting. You definitely have an artist's eye for color. Your happy cottage makes me smile!


Kim- I think I love all the stuff you find...and as you can see, I am painting my old house yellow too...and also doing a yellow chair ( my other blog- it is SUNNY here in Iowa for a few I'm just happy ! And of course, your blog makes me happy too...




Hi Kim,
I have that same tea cup except mine has two handles and a saucer. The handles are just on each side of the tea cup. I love the pattern. I should put a pic of mine on my blog so's you can see it sometime. I'll put it on my to-do list.
Happy week end to you.

Hi Kim I love those tea cups. So pretty


I just wanted to say: I love your photos! :D


Good Saturday morning Kim :)

I love all your finds as always ... the tea cups, the towel, the daisies... and I'm going to go see someone about a pillow I think ;)

Becky's gift is so cute! How sweet are those ladies with daisies in their hair?!

I hope it's as beautiful down in Florida as it is here in Ohio this morning.... Birds singing, white puffy clouds and blue skies (sigh) Have a beautiful day sweet friend :)

love you,

Sher Miller

I want to play! *Grin* I love giveaways! Plus, I'm still a kid at heart!

Your Goodwill must be a classier place than ours. Ours writes directly on their plates with a grease pencil!



Love that pillow! I woudlnt have thought of that!


Hi Kim

Love the pretty cups!

PS - there is an award for you on my blog x

It is all just wonderful! What a fantastic price for those cups, wow!

very lovely :)

Cheryl Bass

Oh, Kim! Those teacups = love! You're such a good finder o' stuff! :) Also lovin' the Daisy postcard. What a thoughtful gift! One thing I love about you, and there are just so many, is your love of COLOR! I so often feel like an oddball with my friends b/c they have such a chic eye for the sublte hues (pinks, grays, creams). I love that look, but color is in my blood. Not just color, but bright color! You inspire me so and remind me that color is OK! :)

Sweet Cottage Dreams

Dear always find the most perfect things at Goodwill. When I was back there Spencer and I took a drive to the GW before we headed out of town. I managed to find a wonderful Scottie to tuck in my carry on. What a wonderful GW you have...much better than ours.

Such lovely things you added to Daisy Cottage. The post card looks so sweet framed in red...thank 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!

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

  • "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
