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

Lisa ~A Cottage to Me

It looks delicious! Thanks for the recipe!


Congratulations Barbara!

I am definitely going to make the strawberrylicious cake! OMG over the top it looks and sounds good! I notice there would be half a box of cake mix left. Can I just mix that with some water and eat with a spoon while the cake bakes? I don't like waste :)

My family loves strawberries and what a wonderful way to love them more. Thank you.
I have been meaning to tell you that I noticed the new pictures of you and Maggie. I like them.
There is some nice looking furniture on Ebay for free about 50 miles from you. I searched for furniture using the word "used". Then choose the "nearest" option.
Have a great week-end,

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Strawberry AND coconut???? Two of my favorite things. Gotta make this one.

Mary Lou

Congratulations to Barbara! I, too, love French soaps.

So much for eating healthy all day... now I just NEED strawberry cake. Lucky you Barbara and all of you have a nice weekend. =^..^=


This is making me want some strawberry cake so bad but I just don't want to bake it!! I am not into cooking.Maybe I will just have to go buy me one. Daisy~


I have never seen a picture of a cake that, by looking at it, was almost as good as eating it in person. Until I saw that photo of that strawberry cake. I have now had my dessert and am fully satisfied. Thanks Kim!


Daisy Cottage

ahhhhhhhhh thank you Ginny!!!!



OK, I am STARVING now...I think I need to make a trip to the store...:)


Your camera shots are great! Do you have a special lens for those close-ups?
I think I just put on 5 pounds looking at that scrumptous cake!

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

Congratulations to Barbara!! goodness, that cake....mmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!


Beautiful post!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love strawberries!


This looks SOOO delicious! Yesterday was my husband's birthday, which will be celebrated tomorrow due to work schedules, and I asked him "what kind of cake would you like?" His answer was "Oooooohhhh, let's see....something light and white, with strawberries and maybe some coconut...." I was stumped -- where was I going to find a cake like THAT? Well, here we go! I'm off to the store to pick up all the stuff and this will be my hubby's surprise birthday cake tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe and the inspiration :-)


Congratulations to Barbara. Kim, I'm so glad you saved me a piece of that beautiful cake. It looks divine!


This recipe sounds like a keeper! I just bought strawberries from Sam's Club so all I need are the cake mix and cool whip and I'm set! ~ Robyn

Kelee Katillac

My mouth is watering looking at that cake. So good! Don't you love shortcake too? Especially that bisquick kind......

Debra Howard

Congratulations to Barbara and OMG that cake looks so good!

Sweet Cottage Dreams

Yes, it is pretty, too. I will have to make this one!!!!!! Thank you for sharing, Miss Kim!!!! Hugs to Miss Shannon from all of us, too.

Barbara will be feeling like a queen with all of her goodies!!! Sending a huge congrats to her!!

Becky and the gang


Happy weekend to you too, dear Kim.

The strawberry cake looks delicious!


Rose - The Center of My Self

Looks yummy! I LOVE dance recitals; so much fun. I know you'll be smiling ear-to-ear as you watch your pretty little nieces, Kim!


Made a quick trip to the grocery to buy the few ingredients I didn't have on hand -- instead of trying to measure half a box of cake mix, I used three boxes of one-layer Jiffy cake mix -- worked beautifully!!! The cake was a huge success -- thanks for sharing the recipe.


Jackie Wyatt

Hi Kim, What a great looking cake! I can't wait to try it. I love that you know enough to give a "real" slice of cake and not a skinny piece. If you are going to eat cake-eat it.
Have a great weekend and Maggie too.



Oh how I miss those recital memories. Did Shannon dance??

Have a great Sunday...

Kathy :)


Oh my! My birthday is in a week or so and I'm thinking I would like to make this cake to share with my family for our tiny celebration. It looks delicious. Thank You!!!


WOW! That does look absolutely delicious! I would love to try that, Kim. Your friend was sweet to share that recipe and so were you!


Sheila :-)

Crystal Sparks

That cake is just too yummy for words!

Delightful Dwelling

I love strawberry cake. That looks so yummy and here I am stuck at work and feeling hungry.


Kim, I made the cake yesterday for a family gathering. It was stunningly beautiful on my Wexford cake stand and incredibly delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is one I will be using often.
Have a blessed week!


What a coincidence, we went to Lulu's Tea Room today (June 16) and had a huge slice of this cake!! It's as good as it looks! We are visiting family in Knoxville, TN and went to the tea room today. We live in Palm Coast, FL.

I was doing a little catch up on blogs I'm behind on, what a surprise to read this recipe on your blog tonight!

I took lots of pictures of Lulu's Tea Room and will feature them on my blog soon. We are going home tomorrow.


Penny Ingram

Hi Kim, I recently made this cake...can I just say... to die for...I want to make this with fresh peaches and peach jello, thanks for sharing the recipe.

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you 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
