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, Kim!
If you're sure Lori won't mind, I would love to come along. I'll get my purse and be right with you.
Have a glorious weekend.

Audrie  from Mi

Shopping that sounds like a good time!


Love your purse Kim! Maybe I could find one on our shopping trip! Or maybe I wait on the swing....that would be fine too!

Spending the dat at the lake tomorrow, then Sunday staying home and being lazy. Sounds like a good one to me!

I'm having a giveaway on my blog with some little vintage goodies. For anyone who's interested, you can find it here >>>

Blessings, Becky


Tomorrow is my birthday so my husband has planned a little get together!! Looking forward to hearing all about your shopping adventure! Have fun!!

Kim, how nice to have a shopping adventure with a good friend and thank you for inviting us to come along. I am rising at 5:00 am to go shopping tomorrow. It is so hot here in the valley of the sun (AZ) that people start there yard sales at 5:30 am and end at noon. There is a sale in my neighborhood so I must check it out.
So here is the great thing. I can be in two places at one time tomorrow.

Cute purse. Actually, I think my Mom had one like that when I was a kid. It also brought back a flood of memories. Like the song "Downtown" by Petula Clark.

Bobbie Lynn

Picking Hubby up the airport. He was overseas for 6 months. Too long of a business trip. Happy shopping to you and Lori.

Donna Tingle

Hope you have a good time your purse...had one quite similar to that..way back in the 60's & 70's...I think that's when the dinosaurs were still roaming the earth...I remember it as being quite roomy!!...Have a great weekend...smooches to Maggie!!

Hi Kim,
First I want to tell you that I just recently found your blog...and I love it!

Shopping!!! Isn't it so much fun to go shopping with a friend!...and that is also what I did today with my friend Karen. We just love to go to the Thrift Stores and Vintage Shops!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Jessica Jensen

Had to work today, but the good thing is that I got to get off early and enjoy the evening. Now I'm working on projects.

Shopping is my favorite thing to do! I'm so jealous. Thrift and Vintage stores are my absolute favorite places to go to! LUCKY!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend too! :)


I went shopping today with Mr. Magpie for my birthday (had lunch with family), and I leave tomorrow for a little trip. I hope you find lots and lots of shiny objects, Kim!


Hi! I recently found your blog and have read it from the beginning! I love your beautiful cottage and the way you have decorated it!

My little Spikey wants me to say hi to Maggie from him!!

Stop by and pay me a visit sometime!


Gretchen Gerg

Hi Kim!

Your weekend sounds more exciting than mine...lots of cleaning to do! Also, playing in the yard and garden...tomatoes to pick!
How I love them!

Have a great weekend!


Thank you so much for letting me come with you on your shopping trip. You people have the most wonderful stores down in Florida! Our stores here are definitely left lacking, when compared. Hope we see lots of great stuff!;o)
Thank you so much for your opinion on my new (to me) dining room suite. You gave me some food for thought! And that is what I was looking for. You are a sweetie! Big Hugs, ~cindy s~


Love the purse!!
I went shopping with my friend Ann this morning - picked up some oh, so cute lampshades for my buffet lamps, and a tray for my coffee table, a shade of green, of course! Hope you had fun shopping too!

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
