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

What a sweet wish...thank you!


Thanks Kim. I could not agree more, there is no place like home!


I'm there, as we speak ...


We had a busy day with family at a pool party...good times...but it is so very nice to be home. =)


Thank you and the same to you.. spent time with family, enjoyed a swim and content and full..have a great week-end..


Thank you. I am doing just that and I hope you are as well. ~Kelly

I'm HOME! You're so sweet to want that for all of us! This old house felt like home before we ever bought it, it's unexplainable!


Kim, you have no idea that today of all days, I needed your prayer! Bless you.


Hi Kim

thanks for popping by the beach cottage

you know I've really been forcing myself to sit down and just be lately, even if it just for 10 minutes a day, to sit and think

I found that I had been creating all these spots on my cottage to love and look beautiful, a particular labour as it had to be on a budget and then I realised that errr actually I never sat down in them

last week I decided that in my little corner nook where I blasted everything white and beachy that I would create a little trip to France, since I am missing Europe here in Australia, soooo, anyway, I got all my frenchy books out and spent the simple be time sitting there with my books and sooo enjoyed it

it has really made me appreciate my home and like you say there is no place like home wherever it is




That is very sweet, Kim. I love to be at home. Come over to my blog. I tagged you for fun game.

Melissa Miller

How sweet of you Kim.
I appreciate it.

Have a wonderful week.
~Warmly, Melissa :)


Thanks, Kim,
My little corner of the world is where I love to be. Where my friends and family can come and share my little corner.

You have influenced me recently.... I never paint, the last couple weeks I've painted a small red table for my sun porch, a red flower pot and a bright yellow one. And I feel happy every time I look at them.
Thank you for sharing your Daisy Cottage with all us.


There definitely is no place like home, I agree. Thankfully I was able to be home and work in my garden for a time, played with the kiddos, kept everybody fed all day, cleaned up(still more to do), saw my hubby off to work the night shift, got the kids into bed and now I can spend time here at the computer for a bit before I get my own self to bed.
I hope that you to have a wonderful week Kim and I thank you for all your lovely posts that we get to enjoy.:)


I know you do mean that Kim. I think a lot about what makes a home. To me the little cottage we inhabit now doesn't feel like home as such. Hopefully when we finish renovating then it will. Your Daisy Cottage inspires me to make my home wherever I am however. You are always a delight with your posts!


Such a sweet post, Kim. Always a pleasure to visit here at your Home Sweet Home. Thanks for your well wishes to all of us.

Hi Kim, you said it perfectly! I think blogging has helped me to find a group of people who feel exactly as I do about HOME and what it means.


Thank you Kim! I wish the same for you!
There is nothing better than coming HOME!

Thank you, Kim! You are so very sweet :)


Absolutely! I love my home! But, for today I'm headed for Maryland then Wilmington, NC tomorrow for 2 weeks. I'll miss Daisy Cottage.

Your pillows are lovely.


Linda@Lime in the Coconut

Yes....I feel it! Thanks for the warm thought!

Lisa ~A Cottage to Me

How lovely Thank you! And you as well!


I love your blog and just have to let you know how much you have influenced me! I have always loved yellow, red and vintage green together and all of the bright colors in your cottage inspired me to go brighter in mine. I also recently painted some of our floors white which I just love. My pictures aren't nearly as good as yours but I'd love for you to stop by my blog some time and take a peak.


A really good read for this Monday morning, especially since I am enjoying some "home time." By the way, I love all your mixed china. Think on all the homes where those pieces came from, what occasions they were used at, the laughter or sorrow around the table, the families .... that's one reason I love using old things ... the stories they could tell!


Hi Kim
I can do that, but it took until I was in my fifties to be able to do it! Hope you have a good week.
((hugs)) Rhondi

Kim, you are so right, There is no place like home. my hubby and I both are homebodies and just love being in our home. It is so important to sit back for a little while and be thankful for our blessings. You have a wonderful Monday.

Kim~ Such a dear sweet post! ~Mandy


What a sweet thought; thank you so much.


Thank you Kim. You are such an inspiration to make a home all it can be!


Thanks Kim! That is exactly where I am.

I'm sitting in a wing chair, in the hearth room. I'm watching the rain, we're having again today. I see all the beautiful green trees and plants, from the window, beside the chair. A bonus bright spot is, next door neighbor, Cathy's orange lilies, blooming beneath the burning bush plants.

Have a great week!

Fay Marie

Hi Kim

Thanks for the good wishes. You are so sweet.
Actually, I'm enjoying today because it's my day off from work and a very sunny day. I'm on my last load of laundry and then I'll be going outside and fiddle around in the garden for a while,then I'll just sit and enjoy the sounds of nature.

Hope you have a good day in every way.

Fay Marie


u are SUCH a sweetie! : )


what a lovely wish.

Cass at That Old House

You couldn't wish for anything better. Feeling truly "at home" is such a blessing.
Best wishes.... Cass

Patty Boyd

How sweet. Being at HOME brings such contentment.


Aw you're so thoughtful Kim :) The same to you!

All the best,


AMEN! I agree! No place like home! Never get tired of being home! Hope you have a wonderful week! Nancy


Funny you should post this... when we went to a graduation party in "Mayberry" this last weekend we had an okay time, but as soon as we reached "Mayberry Jr" and walked into PB&J Cottage we realized how right it felt. This is our home now and we absolutely love it here :)



I love your decorating style! Your house is so precious. My blog is called "There's No Place Like Home" so I totally agree with you!



You are just the sweetest!

This post is so touching. I literally have tears in my eyes. I am not "there" yet but want to be so badly. We live in an apartment right now and no matter what I do or how I decorate- it just never feels like home. We have been house hunting and found one last week that literally has pulled at our heart-strings. The ugliest one on the block! It is all we can talk or think about! There are a couple of hurdles we need to get over but I am hoping that I will be "there" very soon.

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!

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.

  • "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!

Thank You Betty Jo!
