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

Oh Kim! How sweet of you... This is such a lovely and sentimental thing. Maggie is just adorable and I'm sure this is going to touch people's heart and they'll
help little puppies. Have a great Sunday! Vanessa


I am so impressed with both you, Kim, and Kelee; and the two adorable pups Sir Oliver and Miss Maggie. Helping other pups is so special and heartwarming. Thank you for allowing me to participate too. I enjoy this beautiful love story between two beautiful pups. Blessings, Jan

Mermaids of the Lake

So Sweet! Those two make such a fun story and a very cute couple.

Happy Sunday Sweet Kim~
How wonderful!

(I love Maggie bunches, but Marley sure steals my heart as well.)

Hugs! Donna


I have fallen in love with Miss Maggie too !


What an adorable couple Maggie & Oliver make :-)


That is so cute, Kim. I love your little Maggie girl too.


What a sweet post, I think we all love Maggie as much as she loves Oliver Wendell.


I knew she wouldn't be able to resist! I love seeing pictures of Maggie, and that little heart pillow with her picture on it is so sweet!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

All right. But that boy better not break you little heart or he'll have to answer to me.


I dare not tell Nugget about this. He will be so sad! Poor little guy just won't understand. Guess I'll have to break the news to him very gently...


Haha that is so cute! Oh I love little Maggie :)

All the best,


This was darling! Thanks for the posting! Now if they would just have some cute puppies... :) Have you read the book, Pretzel by HA Rey? You need too. It reminds me of Maggie and Oliver! :)

Alison Gibbs

Oh Kim that was such fun to read and what great photos to go with it.


Thank you for sharing. We just went over to HELP out !!! So excited to sport the scarf on our Australian Shepherd, Missy. Blessings, Mica

Maggie May, I do beleive you have stole a lot of hearts. You are so precious. This was such a fun thing to read and see the adorable photos.
Have a wonderful evening.

Dearest Maggie:

This your precious heart--the metronome of a love song called "Maggie." You shall keep the "time" of my love. Beat, beat, beat, until enough scarves have been made to take away the lizard's curse that has half my tail and made some other dogs homeless. As a gallant warrior I shall hold to the fight for those dogs until enough scarves have been created by your followers and mine to bring comfort to the sad hearts of abandoned dogs. Would you expect any less from me? I think not...for it is my nobility that in part has won you.

Now, my betrothed, I will ave the courage to go another day knowing that your heart is pledged to mine! Pray many scarves are made so that at last our love can be made fully offical and I shall receive it with the dignity of a wagging tail--ALL of it.

Your Hero--

Oliver Wendell

Barbara Jacksier

Dear Maggie

I'm crushed. Barbara just told me you've fallen in love. Didn't Kim ever show you my photo on Barbara's blog? Don't you like older men? What will the rest of us singles males do now that you've given your heart away?



Sweet Miss Maggie.... If you had to give your heart away, at least it was to sweet Oliver Wendell. He's a wonderful match for you ;)

Hug your mommy for me!


Betty Jo

OMGosh! How precious is this! Maggie is the sweetest and her heart is so cute. Oliver Wendell is one luck dog!! ♥


Hello Kim,

How adorable! Love this heart!

A Romantic Porch

AAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhh, sweet puppy love! hugs to you. rachel


Oliver Wendell looks just like my two newly adopted grand dogs, Marvin and Clyde. I hope Maggie is very happy and that she is never let down by her doggie love!



I can see why she loves him. He is a very handsome chap!

Fifi Flowers

CUTE love story!
Good to hear from you!
I have notecards ready for you any time you want them!


Kim, that is just tooo cute!! I have been noticing daschounds (if I spelt that wrong, please don't tell Maggie) every time I go for a walk now. They are so sweet! I have started a blog finally and have put you on my sidebar as a favorite! You have been a great inspiration to me, in more ways than one. I feel like I know you, after your sweet comments on the pictures of my little bungalow that i sent you. I am sure everyone feels that way about you though, you are such a dear lady. Hugs ~cindy s~


I would love for you to check my blog out, it is at Let me know what you think. Thanks, Cindy

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss

Sweet little Maggie May could certainly have her pick of any guy she wanted so I sure hope Oliver Wendell knows what a lucky dog he is!


what a sweet tale (or should i say "tail")



this is just so precious and sweet...

love my visits over here, I seem to linger for ages!


Sweet Cottage Dreams

Oh heart is going pitter patter over Maggie for her admiration for Oliver. There is not doubt, or "twist" about it, she is MADLY in love. And it only took a DEVINE....



Maggie is in love...*sigh* I guess she had to grow up someday! : ) Of course my Kipper is depressed now that he will never have the chance to woo her but he still sends his best wishes to the loving couple! *grin*


SoBella Creations

Awwww so sweet! Maggie and Oliver will be an adorable couple.

Brenda Kula

Ah, how sweet! An uplifting tale. Or tails! I'm happy for them both. Tell her not to give her whole heart away. Just little pieces of her heart. A woman's got to keep something back for herself, you know.

Laurie A.E.

I am IN LOVE with this. Couldn't be more perfect ...

double sigh.
triple sigh.


What a wonderful love story!



oh my the photos so much!!! Kim I am so excited to get to our fleamarket tomorrow after drooling all over your pics..thanks for sharing the heart of what we love. Jennifer

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
