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 how I long to see Savannah. And YES, we should go to the next stop. It looks so interesting. Can't wait to see it.


Oh, I would love to go to Savannah! It looks like such a pretty place. Someday maybe?
Thanks for sharing it with us Kim!


I love to visit Savannah and some day I want to move there! It is so pretty a peaceful! Your pictures are beautiful!


Lovely architecture,beautiful flowers, plants and trees. It looks like a great place to visit/live. Thanks for the pics, Kim!



You did it again!!! What pictures! It was so nice to recognize some places. Your photo of the Gastonian was beautiful. My husband and I stayed there for our 12th anniversary. It is wonderful. AND...I cannot believe where we are headed next. I was in that very same shop last Saturday. Can you believe it? We could have crossed paths and never even known it!

I'm Julia

Someday I'd like to sit on that pink bench & watch Savannah go by :-)

tea time and roses

Oh Kim Savannah is absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing these lovely photos. I wish someday to visit there.:o)




I'm so glad your birthday was special Kim. I've loved following along with much to see and do in Savannah. I've been wanting to go for months now. Maybe soon. I hope.



Beautiful photos, I have always wanted to visit Savannah


Oh well Kim, of course PARIS MARKET, I vote for that. However, I don't know if you are aware, but we have in So. FL a place that has the same ambiance (mis-matched furniture and wonderful people running it) Bizaare Ave Cafe & Bistro Bizaare | 921 Lake Ave | Lake Worth | FL | 33460 There Brie is well, come see. . . Their food is so good, I have become quite choosy about the places I go to eat now. Thank you for the mini-vacation. Blessings, Jan

you are so thoughtful to share your Birthday with us. I'm glad you had a birthday filled with yummy treats and beauty:)

What wonderful photos of Savannah. So many beautiful homes


Just looking at the first pic of Savannah I knew this was going to be a wonderful sight seeing stroll. So, I paused to grab a cup of Chai Tea with a little vanilla caramel cream in it. (Sigh) Savannah is absolutely stunning. . . .the homes and all the architectual detail. . . breathtaking!!! And the gardens are so beautiful with blooms. . . each picture is worth a second ,third, fourth look. Thanks for sharing.

Looking forward to seeing the Paris Market.


Wow! Great photos! I love that pink bench! Pink is my fav! What a neat little coffee place. And yes go to the Paris Market that sounds so cool!

All the best,


I do so wish to visit Savannah someday!


LOVE LOVE LOVE all the pictures of Savannah. When I picture the beautiful South that is what I imagine. Yes, I do believe a visit to the Paris Market is in order. You have the most wonderful blog. I used to hate it when my daughters would spend so much time on the I seem to beat them hands down. It's sites like yours Kim that fill my down days will lots of Sunshine! Now I just wish I could be a little mouse in your pocket and go with you on all your fun adventures! Hugs

Becky G.

Debbie Auld

I'm so enjoying your postings. I'm glad I found you. Thanks for sharing. :)

Patti VZ

Love the pictures!! Just seeing that pink bench inspires me...maybe I ought to add a splash of color rather than my bland bench!

Crystal Sparks

Ok ok I guess next time you go I will go with you!! ;)

Looks absolutly breath taking! I hope to go there one day! It looks so beautiful! Nothing like good cookies and coffee to top it off either! You are amazing! I always love your blog!

Penny Ingram

Your photos are beautiful! I've been to Savannah and it's like the most amazing place I've ever seen. Makes me want to go back. Thanks for sharing.


OH! Savannah is positively beautiful! Your amazing pictures (what talent you possess) make me sigh and long to visit Savannah. Perhaps someday...

Thank you for sharing. Your blog puts a smile on my face every single day!


I love Savannah and I can't wait to visit there again. You made me miss it so much! It's so beautiful.
Hugs, Susan


Visiting Daisy Cottage is such a wonderful bit of stress relief. Thank you, dear Kim, for the lovely photos of Savannah. I felt as if I were there with you.


Thanks for taking us on vacation :) How nice to see things through your talented lense, Kim!
The city is oozing with charm, isn't it?


Traveling with Kim ... what a way to go! I LOVE the pink bench!

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

Savannah looks like a beautiful city, and I bet you could've spent even more time there, just exploring! Next stop, Paris Market!



I just returned from Savannah, was there Thursday through Sunday. I'm so glad to see the photos you have posted - I saw many of the same spots, but missed some photo ops. LOVED the geraniums and ivied steps! I hope to return some day to explore more, 'cause it was soooo hot and humid this trip.

Rochelle Gaukel

Wowee! I just love those homes and especially the greenery covered steps....they are to DIE for! So lush everything is there too! Thanks for sharing with us!


Kim, this wonderful stroll was just what I needed. It was beautiful, the music was soothing, and I could feel the tension go out of my shoulders by just browsing your post.

Thank you.


Savannah is truly beautiful and full of southern charm! What a beautiful visit thru your lens, thanks for sharing your trip!

Janet Velez

The happiest I've ever been on a trip was in Savannah. I'm Dixie born and Yankee bred...I connect with Savannah and it's neighbor Tybee Island like nowhere else in the US. Thank you for this visit.


I've always wanted to go to Savannah... thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures...


I didn't want that to end :( I really think the stork placed me in the wrong part of our wonderful country, I so love the NE but I am so DRAWN to the SOUTH !!!

YES PLEASE take us to the next stop !!!

Kathy :)

I could sell the blue cottage and go to Savannah really quick. I have never been there - would love too.. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing.. and oh again hope your 50th was awesome!


I had heard that Savannah was one of the most charming cities in the south and now I believe it. Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures.


I love Savannah and that store. The company I worked for shot at her house and it was amazing too. Enjoy one of the prettiest towns in America! k


Had to back up to see where we might be going next...yes, that'd be wonderful!

Savannah is such a beautiful city oozing with charm. Maybe I'll be able to visit one day.


Love the whole Savannah thing. We were there last summer but with the heat I never made it to the Vintage General!!! Your post brings back so many memories and also reminds me of the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil". Thanks for the memories!

Bobbie Lynn

More great photos and thank you! Would love to go there someday.


One of my most favorite places ever..Savannah! What a special birthday celebration!
I am glad you are having such fun and I am so enjoying seeing it all again through your eyes!



Love the coffee shop. We were at a place called the Cinnamon Tea Room in Madison Indiana. Nothing matched and the food was fabulous! Not been able to read your blog daily (Dad w/ cancer) but will do better.
Thanks for sharing.


Oh my goodness, what a beautiful place! I'm adding Savannah to my Places to Visit List. I love that coffee shop ~ the best hing about it is that it ISN'T a Starbucks!!! It's a charming place with its own character!

Rose - The Center of My Self

I had a picture of Savannah in my mind of lovely gardens, stately mansions, well-kept streets, cordiality and grace. How delightful to find that it's actually like that! What a lovely place to visit!


Kim -

Your pictures are wonderful and thanks for sharing. I loved the hot pink bench!!!


Nancy M.

Oh yes, lets go in. Can we? The porches, balcony's and the flowers love it there. How was the weather? You have my attention. I will be back tomorrow to see where you have decided to take us.

Debbie Vierkant

That was a wonderful litte tour of Savannah, that you it looks absolutely beautiful and charming there! I want to go sometime! It looks like a great place for a romantic getaway. What do you think it would be like there in Oct.? My husband and I want to plan a little 4 day getaway then. Take care, hugs!


Kim...OMG, your photos are simply gorgeous! Those 'painted ladies' are so elegant, but my favorite photo is the ivy-covered do they DO that?? In addition to your writing, I think you should consider're a natural. ~Sue~


Hello Kim - beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing.


Sweet Cottage Dreams

****insert a big sigh HERE******** I can see why you love it soooo much, Kim. Every place you look, there is something lovely and breath taking to look at. I love the IVY steps.

Thank you for sharing your lovely photos. They should be in a magazine. Really!

What can I say? Reading your blog always starts my day off with a smile! I can taste the foods, smell the flowers, touch the rich fabrics and just feel the warmth of home, family and friends!

Betty Jo

Kim you are so making me want to take a trip to Savannah! We used to go several times a month when it was only a two hour drive from our home. Wonder if I could talk Carolyn into going with me!! I'll show her your gorgeous photos and that should do it!! ♥

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 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 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 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 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
