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

I LOVE that teacup! So cute!

Maya

You seem to be surrounded with wonderful stores. What a great and generous giveaway!!! The place I go and like to peek is not the most charming, nor that exiting really, but every now and then there is something that wows me and I can't believe that I found it at the local Job Lot.

I have never been to Savannah, it's good to have a "personal shopper". What a sweet give away. I just visited a website that really touched me, won't you visit it to, it is about war memorials.
www.donttearmedown.com

Sandy

Fun giveaway! I think the teacup is adorable.
I can't think of a favorite town to visit. As far as shopping, my all time favorite place to shop and visit is Goodwill! Any Goodwill, it's so much fun to look for goodies and find treasures!

Melinda

I love your sweet, relaxing blog...I'm so glad I found you

Elaine/MuddlingThrough

What a sweet bunch of lovliness you're giving away here! Somebody is going to be really happy. I've never been to Savannah. I'd love to go.

Danika

What FUN and Beautiful things! My Favorite place to visit is Lake Chelan, WA. I have been going there for family vacations for 25 years and always have such a fun time visiting all the little shops with my Mom. We are headed back in 2 weeks...can't wait!

Jo

You are terribly sweet to find such lovely treasures and to share them with us! I am sure glad I found your blog. It puts a smile on my face each and every time I visit.

Becky from Tennessee

Kim, I don't have a blog but I visit you
daily and would like to be included in
your wonderful give-away. I love every-
thing in it. My husband has been to
Savannah several times with his business
and I LOVE it! Vintage General was my
favorite place to browse. My husband
and I even did the tourist thing and
stood in line to eat at Paula's Lady and
Sons Restaurant....she even had collards
at her buffet. I was in HEAVEN!! LOL
Probably my favorite place to shop
would be right here in Franklin. The
store is Yarrow Acres and it has all
kinds of gardening items and decorations.
It also has antiques mixed in with all
the other wonderful goodies. Love it!
I hope you will include me in your
"Just Because" give-away.

Katy

Such lovely things! I'd be happy to even win just one of them. :0) Blessings, Katy

Maury

What fantastic finds Kim! I wish I could have visited Savannah too! Until then I will have to settle for my favorite antique shops on Jackson Street, http://www.visitharlingentexas.com/events?event_id=1435&event_detail_date=2009-07-11

Patty

Oh my! What wonderful things! So "Daisy Cottage". I'll keep my fingers crossed. It is so sweet of you to bring back something to give away from your trip.
Blessings,
Patty

Amy A.

I have only recently found your site and now I visit it nearly every day! I love seeing the photos of your home and treasures that you find. Thank you for the inspiration! A great place to visit is the Nashville Fairgrounds Flea Market, held once a month.

Missy K

How beautiful! You have helped me relive a trip my husband and I took to Savannah several years ago, and made me want to return! What lovely things!

sarita

good morning. one of my favorite places to visit is a restaurant in Ashland Oregon called Morning Glory. here's the link to it:
http://morninggloryrestaurant.com/
if you "enter" the site you'll see pics of this wonderful restaurant.
thank you for a chance to win some of your lovely items..

Debbie Auld

Found you through Flickr. I love your photos and your blog. :-)

My favorite place to visit is the beach in the evenings. The hubby and the kids play in the water while I lay a quilt on the sand. I spread my crochet notions all around me and crochet while taking in the beautiful sea air and the scenery.

tammyCA

Wow, that's some amazing giveaway...all my favorite colors and things...polka dots, rick-rack, aprons...oh, my! We don't have a lot of neat places around here...but, I would have to say my favorite place to visit when I can is the Rose Bowl flea market. Other than that I am a frequent Goodwill/Salvation army shopper. Takes a lot of visits and searching but once in awhile I find something cool. And, of course I love visiting my favorite blogs such as yours! (argh, can't wait for my computer to get fixed as it's so hard to see the blogs and type on my iPhone with one finger.)

Sharon

OMG!!!!!! Look at all that wonderful color!! I just love red and yellow!! That gingham is tooo cute. I'd love to win!!! Love it!!! Thanks for doing a wonderful give away!!

I'm Julia

What beautiful, sweet things! You're so generous, Kim :-) I enjoy your blog so much.

My favorite places... geographically speaking, Bermuda, Cayman Kai, & my sweet mama's house. Blogosphere-wise, oh my, that's too hard. There are just too many to choose a fav. Shopping? I love little boutiques & shops, but nothing beats finding a treasure on the curb... thrift stores run a close second, but something tossed away, something I know I can bring to life... I guess my favorite place to shop is other people's trash, LOL!

Have a peaceful, happy day :-)

Susan J.

I was in Savannah in May and missed all the great stores you found. I one place I lid love there was Mrs Wilke's Boarding House. I had the best meal of my life there. After eating there Paula Deen's tasted like McDonalds.

Kristen Smith

Please enter me in your lovely giveaway.

I like to visit any small town. There's a place called Glendale, KY not too far away that is wonderful.

Thank you for always thinking of us, while you are shopping....that is so sweet of you! If you are ever in San Luis Obispo, CA you must check out one of my favorite stores. It is called The Nest http://www.thenestinslo.com/

Terri

Hi Kim - please enter me in your generous giveaway. My favorite place to visit right now would be on the California coast (preferably Carmel) - love the weather!

You always have the best giveaways. My favorite place to visit is Cape Cod. It is only 3 hours from my home in CT but is so much more laid back and beachy. Just a relaxing fun place to be and very family friendly too.
Karla

Nancy

Kim your blog is the best. It has inspired me to "cottage" my own house. The items in the give away are awesome. You are an inspiration, your attitude is amazing. It's a pleasure to read your blog.

Kristina

My husband and I love to go to new places. We got married two years ago and we went to Williamsburg VA. I still think that is my favorite place to visit. We both just love history. If something has a story behind it I just love it. I love all the beautiful things that you found. They really inspire me. I love the colors, Yellow is my favorite, and red is close behind. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Kim! I really enjoyed your 'Savannah Series' and would love to visit there. I don't really have just ONE favourite place to visit because I enjoy every place I go ~ New Orleans, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Paris, Rome, Venice, Florence. Our next place to visit will be San Francisco and I am very much looking forward to that trip!

Nancy

Sunny

Thanks for making me smile on a Monday morning. Your pictures are so bright and cheery. Have a great week.

Dawn Gahan

Kim,
Thanks for such a lovely giveaway!

My most favorite — but, alas, no more — was Lakewood Antiques Market in Atlanta. Girlfriends would meet up there and make a day of shopping, gabbing, eating and loving the atmosphere. So sad when it closed.

And, of course, Goodwill can give us such great finds.

Dawn
The Gahan Girls

julie

What a pretty giveaway...love it all! Savannah is on my list of favorite places.

I know that there's not much of a chance of me winning your little (huge?!) giveaway but I would love it if I did! Those things have my heartstrings all over them!

My favorite place to visit? Daisy Cottage, Shabby Scraps, The Feathered Nest and All Sorts blogs! You can always find a wonderful antique mall nearby, but it is a real treasure to visit kindred spirits that fill your day and sometimes week with inspiration, creativity and sunshine! Thanks for being such a sunny spot, Kim!

Heather Clark

Hmmm...my favorite place to visit would probably be Ocracoke Island, NC. I also LOVE New England. Please enter me in your "just because" giveaway...I'd love to have a little piece of Daisy Cottage at my house for inspiration.

Vicki

Caryn C.

Oh how sweet! I love to visit Flagstaff AZ. Just a few hours away from Phoenix, it's a place with 4 seasons, snow (!), and lovely small town charm. And really good coffee. ;)

Lilian

Hi Kim,
This is such a wonderful give away.
You make gorgeous pictures, it's always a pleasure to visit your blog!
I'm living in the Netherlands so I don't know if I can join the give way wannabees too.

a big hug from the Netherlands,
Lilian

Melissa Brackenbury

Hi Kim,
I love the yellow checks.. so happy.

Vonnie

You're beautiful pictures of Savannah have inspired my dear Hubby and I to visit. I've started writing down all the places to see and things to do. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us. If not for you, we may never have found it or began to dream about it :)

Debbie Vierkant

Oh, everything looks so yummy! I have so many favorite place to visit that it's hard to just pick one but I guess I would say Steamboat Springs CO since that is where my daughter and son in law live. The town is so cute and has lots of great shops and loads and things to do. I hope you pick my name, PLEASE, hehee!!!

Vonnie

My favorite place to visit; Ogunquit Beach, Maine. My twin sister and I stayed in a beautiful little bed and breakfast near Perkins Cove and walked the Marginal Way. We sipped espresso at our favorite place, Cafe Preggo that sits up above all the local foot and auto traffic. I long to return there soon with my sister who lives in Houston.

Mrs. Mordecai

I love visiting northern Michigan; it's so green and peaceful. On the web, i enjoy http://pleasantviewschoolhouse.blogspot.com/

Kat

I love visiting Duh in Pensacola. They have so much eye candy and I can always find something wonderful.

Happy Monday Kim!
Hugs!
Kat

Debbie

Hi Kim, what a great giveaway...I am so blessed I don't need to win anything and would love it if you actually picked my post to give it to someone else. I wanted to say I love to visit...blogs...yours in particular! I don't have to drive anywhere, I can visit whenever I want...with my favorite cup of coffee, in my favorite p.j.'s. What could be better? It's always fun, always therapeutic, cheers me up, gives me ideas! And the friends made along the way: priceless! I love it.
Have a beautiful day!
Debbie

Jeanette Carlstrom

I am a big fan of San Francisco and all it has to offer. Living so close I can just take the train and stroll around looking for anything my heart desires. I also love to visit Daisy Cottage. For some reason lately I seem to buy things in red and yellow :). Hope your 4th was everything you wanted it to be. Hug Maggie.

SusanG

All that cuteness!! Savannah is definitely one of my favorites. I'd add Austin (some great vintage-ness there) and Kansas City for great vintage/thrift shopping as well.

Susan

sondra

I love your blog! I think it has to be my favorite place to visit! I love the color, strolls, and fun places to visit so much. I can't forget Maggie as she is so adorable!

Milli (sashagirl on flickr)

Casey

How fun! I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now (my mom introduced me!), and haven't commented yet. But I'd love to be entered in this delightfully cheery giveaway! :)

I think my favorite place to go is some of the older, rural towns in western Virginia--towards the Shenandoah Valley. I live far, far south of there now, but have so many fond memories of antiquing trips out that way! I always managed to be inspired and find something exciting. ;)

claudette flanigan

So many pretty things! I love your blog...writings and pictures! My favorite place to visit lately is a local consignment shop. I just found a Talbots purse that was just like new for $8.00. And they have such pretty household things. I also love shopping at Home Goods. Thanks for the giveaway.

Well, we just left the Gatlinburg, TN area and it was so wonderful. I want to go to Savannah SO SO SO badly but for a while I will just have to look at your blog and maybe win this awesome prize until I can go there myself. Love ya Kim! Your blog is the best!

Lynnette

Your giveaways just get better every time. I would so love to win that adorable teacup and all the other lovelies that go along with it. Thank you!! I have never been to Savannah, but it is now on my list of places I must visit SOMEDAY!!!

Nancy

What a wonderful giveaway--you're so generous. I'm redoing my kitchen--installing tongue and groove, and chair railing, to get it more cottagey (I have a 1911 bungalow.) These lovelies would look great in my kitchen!!! My fave place would be Santa Barbara. Beautiful and great vintage shopping, too.

Debbie

Love the red heart and cup! After all, my blog is named Heart Choices.

I love your photos. They are always so colorful and I have a feeling they are just like you!

Carole

You have the best giveaways! The cup, apron, dish and that precious little birdie in cage are calling my name lol. Even if I don't win, thanks for sharing your treasures from Savannah.

I haven't had the opportunity to visit Savannah (yet) but its always been my dream destination because of the historical homes, antique and thrift shops, and the ghost stories!!

My fav place to visit is Coronado, California. It's beautiful, quaint and home of the famous Hotel Del Coronado.

Carole

Sheila

Oh, look at the cuteness, Kim! And when I saw that bluebird (magpies love bluebirds) roll past, I thought I would throw my name in the hat, too. That yellow check apron is the cutest thing EVAH! :-)

And my favorite place to visit is Charleston. My favorite place to live is St. Augustine. But I love to shop all over! ;-)


Thanks for a shot at winning. A friend of mine told me she was going to win a giveaway that we had recently for a group I belong to, that she ALWAYS wins, and lo and behold, she did! I've been very blessed to have won some neat drawings, so I'm just going to say, I'm going to win yours, too! LOL! If I don't, that's okay because I'm always happy for whoever does win.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Aubrey

I just found your blog...and what a cute blog at that! I too have a giveaway this week. Be sure to check it out.
My favorite place to visit would have to be: The bookstore. Silly yes i know, but i have a love for words. Getting lost in stories and the silence around you is peaceful. Especially when you're trying to escape your daily life for a few hours. Thanks for the opportunity to win

Hope

Ohhh- what loveliness!!
Savannah is great like that. I do love visiting there. As well, New Orleans can be very enchanting.
I'm so glad you had fun on your trip and have come back sharing with us.
Thanks!

Dear Kim....Your giveaways are the BEST! Your so generous & kind sweets! Coming to your blog always makes me smile:)
I have been to Savannah & I loved it!
My favorite place is closer to home....
Eureka Springs Ark. We got married there in an old B&B decorated in Victorian charm! I love it & we go at least once a year...its a charming place:)
Hugs..
Deb:)

Vanessa

Kim! Love the just beacuse giveaway just because I love visiting your blog! Thanks for offer those lovely gifts! Have a great day!

Anita

Kim, you always know how to put together the prettiest things even when shopping for others! That little cup is the prettiest thing I've seen in a long time! And I've seen lots of pretty things - ya know! Such a sweet cup - love the little flower by the handle.

You make me want to move to Florida and decorate my own pretty little cottage there. However, I'm afraid I'd wilt in the heat and humidity. Even if I was originally from AZ! I'm trying to figure out how to do a road trip to Savannah now, but it's gonna be a long one all the way from WA state! I love to travel so anywhere new is where I'd love to visit. Have never been to the East Coast (other than Miami) so that's where I'd mostly like to go!

Have a VERY happy week, Kim!

dara

You pick the cutest things to share with everyone. My favorite place for items like you find is a place called Morgan House. It is across the river from the Columbus Zoo. When I drop my daughter off for her volunteer shift, I often stop there to shop.

Francine

HI! Boy, I sure could use a little something pleasant in my life right about now! My favorite place to visit is right here in Wisconsin. It's Door County! Sort of like a bit of New England. I love it there, and The White Gull Inn has the best breakfast ever!!!!

Lorie

Oh! Beautiful! My favorite place to visit is Main Street! I live in Mesa, AZ and there are so many cute shops...Like Domestic Bliss!!..that are just backed with fun items and good inspiration!

dana

What a fun giveaway!! Thanks for including me in the drawing.

My favorite place to shop----any really great flea market or antique show--just like the one coming up this Saturday in our town of Independence, Missouri. It's called the Bingham-Waggoner Antique Sale and features vendors spread around the grounds of the victorian Bingham-Waggoner Estate. It's wonderful! I always find lots of great items.

Dana

Kathy at Shocking Pink Thread`

Hi Kim, I loved all of the Savannah "eye candy". I think the city should give you a free visit because you have inspired so many of US to visit. My favorite place to go these days is to see my daughter in Northern Virginia. We recently discovered Luckett's Store in Leesburg, VA. What a treat any day of the week but their monthly design house is divine! Thanks for another sweet giveaway. ~Kathy

Mary Ahearn

Hi Kim- I love your blog,love of color, and spirit of kindness and cheer that you send out over the 'net! Wonderful pictures! As for shopping- Skippack Village here in good old PA. There's a great little garden center called Floral & Hardy,the Butler's Pantry,and many other shops and restaurants. You would love it! And yes,yes-please enter me in the give away. Thanks for your wonderful blog.

Debra Cripps

Kim, your pictures are wonderful. Makes me wish I had my own Daisy Cottage!

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

  • "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

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 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
