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 my goodness...I would seriously pass out from all of the loveliness in that shop! I think I would have to buy every single item!


cute shop! Now, tell us what you came home with from there!!!

Lisa ~A Cottage to Me

I love shops like that! Thank you for the tour! And yes, what did you bring home?


I just love going shopping with you. Im glad I left my purse home as there are a lot of items I would "just have to have". Where are we are to next??" Please tell me that we are going to stop for coffee as my feet are killing me.


Such an interesting shop with such a diverse inventory. I saw several things I would have wanted to bring home with me.

Thank you for taking us along, Kim.


Goodness! So many wonderful things to look at. I am sure I would have blown my budget! What did you bring home?

Thanks for the great tour. What a treat!

Daisy Cottage

I brought home a little something-something to give away to one of YOU.



I'm Julia

Something for everyone in that pretty shop. Love the carefree yet sensible, arrangement... sweet!


So many lovely goodies! And you were right. My heart did pitter patter a bit just scrolling through the post!
I'm wondering what made it back to Daisy Cottage? The quilted trivets perhaps? They looked oh so cheerful.

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

I love every single thing in that shop, but especially those potholders! I would get into some serious trouble if that shop was anywhere near me. It looks like there is something for every decorating style there, which I'm sure makes it a success. Thanks for taking me shopping with you!


Oh, the places you go! I'm dreaming of going to Savannah. Can't wait for the next stop on the tour!


Like stepping back in time! Love the quilted pillows and that little brown squirrel!

Becky G.

Savannah is one of my very favorie places to visit! We were there last year for Thanksgiving week, and had such a wonderful time. Well worth the trip for anyone interested in history, shopping, architecture, shopping, eating, shopping, etc. etc. etc.

Elizabeth Ann

Thank you soooo much for inviting me along to visit this delightful shop! All the pics are wonderful, what caught my eye was using vintage yardsticks attached to the shelves under the many ribbon bobbins. Remember when stores gave these away to celebrate their opening, and advertise at the same time! It was a clever touch to use them here!

Looking forward to more of Savanah...

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio & The Comforts of Home

That was one of my favorite shops when I visited Savannah last Nov. I was lucky enough to meet the owner and she is a sweety! Thanks for taking me back there again..


Very cute! I love stores like this, they make me want to rush home and fuss about in my rooms making them pretty.

Oh, mine is pitter, patting and jumping up and down. Be still my heart! Is fabulous!


Oh Kim what a treat you have shared with us! I want to go to Savannah with my daughters very soon. I am a huge Paula Deen fan and want to eat at The Lady and Son's and visit all those precious shops. I know you must have come back home with some goodies!


ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! Thanks for sharing! Nancy


Oh Boy, my cup of tea!!


Thanks! I had to take my time and look at each and every thing! Hope you didn't mind waiting for me? I could use a big glass of lemonade right about now, how about you? It's too early for a mint julep, I guess?

Please tell me what you bought! I can hardly stand the anticipation!

Bobbie Lynn

She has a little bit of everything in her shop, how neat. Love the photos and thanks for the tour. The weather look great too.


Be still my heart:) I would seriously get a job just so I could shop there! Thanks for showing us all of that delicious eye candy. Won't be needing my chocolate fix today.


What fun. I would be broke, but oh, the look of my place. . . thank you for sharing. You always take me into another beautiful world. Blessings, Jan

Mary Lou

What fun! I love browsing through stores like that. It reminds me of one of the last trips my oldest daughter and I took to a shop very much like that before she got married. Made me a little sniffly to think of it.
Thanks for sharing that with us.
Mary Lou


I think it is so fun that even though I live far away I can visit some of the fun shops of Savannah with you! Things I would never see if not for you sharing them, oh those ribbons and trims! the Chalkboard above the bed, the pillows and linens and everything else! It all makes me want to go there myself:>)

Fay Marie

Hi Kim,

Thanks for the shopping tour. It was fun as always. I especially liked the quilt pillow shams.

Liz Demos. Her last name is Dutch. Did you notice anything like Dutch Clogs or windmills in the store? Maybe she is married to someone from Holland. Just a little curious.

Fy Marie

Leigh Ann

Great posts the last few days! thanks for sharing!

debi @ life in my studio

Ooooh! What a pretty shop! I could definitely get lost in there....and then come out broke!


What an adorable store!!! I need to plan a trip to Savannah!

Linda@Lime in the Coconut

Love the store....But it is YOUR pictures that really give it life! Beautiful!


what a fun shop! love all the polka dots bowls and tea pots towels!!! i'd definitly shop there:)

Melissa Miller

It's wonderful!
What a feast for the eyes. I love everything and thanks for the fun tour.

Have a blessed day.
~Melissa :)


Wow!! I'm not sure how a person could walk into that store and not leave with an armful of goodies.

Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. I think I could live there!!


Oh my friend, I have been busy with a Patriotic Musical and missed your sweet birthday. Happy Birthday once again, from a friend that loves Daisy Cottage.

Daisy Cottage

ahhh... thank you Tricia!!


Oh that was the breath of fresh air I so needed on this crazy busy Monday! What a lovely store!


Alison Gibbs

What a wonderful store. Lucky for me that I live in Australia and no where near that store or I would have no money. I am sure I would and could spend it all in there. Thanks for sharing it with us

Liz Demos

Wow. I am really flattered you wrote about my shop. I am especially happy to read all the lovely comments your readers have made. I promise you, I practically live there so it is too bad we missed each other. Next time you will have to let me know you are coming.

You took such pretty pictures too!

And to Fay Marie...I am Greek, not Dutch. Interesting though. I have never heard that my last name was Dutch. I think it was shortened when my grandparents came to America.

Thank you so much for that trip! Did you take home any treasures? I love the way all the ribbon against the wall looks- I want it all!


Phyllis Brandon

This is the type of shop I love discovering. Since I doubt I'll ever get to go to Savannah, I sure appreciate the tour!


Oh!!! You make me want to take a trip to Savannah!


Beautiful pictures! Even though I live in Savannah.....I can't wait to see where you take us next!


A most charming shop! The pot holders really caught my eye...along with lots and lots more! It was grand fun :) Thanks for sharing this spectacular store.

Sara at Be Still and Know

KIM! I can't believe you've posted my MOST favorite store EVER!!! We've been to Savannah for vacay two years in a row now and this shop stopped me in my steps! I was in there for a LONG time while hubby walked the 5 kiddos around :)
And this is the store that inspired me to collect yardsticks to use on our schoolroom shelves like Liz did with the ribbon spools....she is super nice. Thanks for bringing a favorite memory back to me tonite :)


Lovely Kim...thank you thank you for the tour !!!

Kathy :)


Thank you for sharing. I could just stay here all day. What a lovely place to go. Wow, I can imagine how it must feel to work there, to greet visitors, to sit and have tea during quiet times. Thank you for taking us along on this lovely day dream of a visit.


Kim, This store is Eye Candy to the 10th degree!! Liz's merchandise is so varied and there seems to be something for everyone.

I saw something on the ribbon display shelf that intrigued me- a wooden yardstick with the name of a familiar furniture/fur store here in SW Ohio. Tickled me... Thanks for taking us along on this tour. :-) Sue


BEAUTIFUL! Now I'm off to visit her blog and website!

Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us...can't wait to see what's next! =)


*Sigh* I wish I could go there! Wow what an awesome place!

All the best,

Cheri Peoples

How Lovely. That is a Fabulous shop.


One of my FAVORITE shops in Savannah. Your pictures are great and it does my heart good to see the place brimming with goodies!
ok, so...what did you buy?


Hey Kim, this is Katrina (Cindy's daughter). We went to this shop today by your reccomendation and ran into Paula Deen, as sweet as can be. She took a picture with us.

Nancy M.

Oh Kim,
The sights, smells and sound of my heals on the wood floor. I am right there with you. I adore the play horse in the window. How about the sewing basket on the ladder and the wire bird cage peaking out? Oh so adorable.
I can't wait to see the next stop.
Nancy M.


I would be broke if I lived close by! I am trying out MckLinky and would love for you to stop by and link...

Furniture removalists

Thanks for the post!


I wish I had known you were going to Sav'h I am from there circa 1773 haha really. Anyway, I have been there and I love that shop, on Broughton right? Anyway, love, love, love it. Would love to hear the details!


thank you for taking so many great photos! my sister went a few months ago and raved about vintage general. boy, can i see why!


Gretchen Gerg


You make me want to jump in the car and head to Savannah! What a great store and thank you so much for sharing all the pictures.



Love the post- such beautiful pictures. I am blown away with one of the pics of ribbon. The yardstick is from Laura, Ohio- a town about 10 miles from my house. The population of Laura is less than 500 people! I don't even think there is a traffic light. How long ago was there a store that sold "Furs and Furniture"? LOL I love it. It really is a small world.

Sweet Cottage Dreams

I spy several things that would have been purchased by yours truly. I love that shade of blue that I see in the favorite right now. LOVE that couch and that huge chalkboard. She has wonderful collections and a sweet store!!!!



What a wonderful store -- I'm ordering the cute little metal squirrel to set on my patio -- maybe all the real ones will come and visit -- pesky little critters but I love their antics.

We hope to get to Savannah later this year (when the weather is cooler) and I'm keeping a list of all the places you mentioned -- you're my tour guide!!!

Best always --


The Summer Kitchen Girls

Hello Kim! We're so glad that people are finding our favorite stop in Savannah. We were on a carriage tour ride & passed by & were drooling and vowed to find it & check it out...we did ~ and were in heaven!


Wow! It's lovely. Next time I visit the States I'll have to swing past Savannah.


I was in that store the last time I was in Savannah, and I absolutely loved it! Thanks for bringing me back.


what a shop, how i wish i could visit and buy some of those things....

cheap kamagra

Does anyone remember the bright multi-colored aluminum glasses from the 1950s or so? They came in sets of multiple colors. Are they safe to drink out of?

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

  • "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!

Thank you Karen!
