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

Sigh...I love Savannah! I so want a weekend there, but may wait until it's a bit cooler! :)

Love all the pictures - that red bird cookie might be the cutest cookie I've ever seen!! Glad you had a great birthday!!


Diane Stephenson

Happy Birthday, Kim! Those blue window boxes are divine! Thanks for the wonderful pictures - they warm my heart. :)


Thank you for the beautiful images Kim! So pretty, despite the heat. We are melting here in MO as well, but cooled down for a little tennis last night. ~Kelly

Thank you for the wonderful tour of some of Savannah. I enjoyed it so very much!
Your blog, your home and your obvious enthusiasm for life just delight me!

Have a joy-filled 4th of July weekend!


Savannah was wonderful, but the picture of your own welcoming cottage was the perfect way to end. Happy 4th to you and yours...

Your photos of beautiful Savannah make it one of the places on my top 5 places to visit some day. I love the color and the beautiy and I know there is so much more there to see:>)


I'm sooo glad your birthday was such a treat for you. And thank you for sharing and making it such a lovely treat for us, also. I thoroughly enjoyed Savannah thru your eyes. I have never been there, but maybe some day.....

Kim, that last photo, the one of your house, is simply enchanting. The white picket fence, the colors, a little girl's dream. And the colors of Savannah were eye candy as well. Have a wonderful 4th of July, blogging friend!

It is STILL HOT in Savannah. And so....I am headed to Florida for vacation. ( Don't laugh...I know it's hot there too).Your pictures were great! I enjoyed them so much. The pictures inspire me to stop, look around, and appreciate the beauty all around me. Sometimes, even in this beautiful city, life is a little crazy and I forget to look. Thanks for reminding me.


Kim, I told my husband last night that I can't wait till we can go to Savannah! You have definitely wet my appetite for things that are good. Thank you,


As always...wonderful photos Kim.

Happy 4th!

(btw...I've gone HOME to Just A Beachkat)


So much fun...thanks for taking us along! Have a safe and happy 4rth everyon! =)


Cute little bird cookies ~ I'll take a blue one please ~ and I'd love to dine in a PINK restaurant!!
Happy Fourth!!


So neat! After your pictures I told my boyfriend I wanted to go to Savannah and you know what he said? It's too hot! LOL! I still want to go haha.

All the best,

Kim, thank you for sharing the amazing and beautiful Savannah! Wishing you and Kevin a Happy 4th! SmIlEs!


Kim, you sure have an eye for all things pretty! I love window boxes....and your home....stunning, thank you for sharing.

My trip will have to wait until the fall. I cannot tolerate the GA summer heat. My parents were both from GA, couple hours from Savannah. So lovely, but there is definitely no place like home!! ♥

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

Love the shot of YOUR table at the restaurant, and the story of the green chair! I love when things work out like that!
Happy 4th to you and your family!


I would love to go to Savannah, but not in June. We went to New Orleans one year in June and Holy Moly it was hot! I have never experienced heat like that in my life. We were down south to go visit our son and see him graduate from Officer's Candidate School in Pennsacola, so we didn't have a choice of when we went. We want to go back when it's cooler so we can enjoy the sites. If we go back, we'll hop on over to Savannah and look for Paula!

I was in Savannah in early spring last year, and it was so beautiful (and not so hot). Thanks for sharing these great photos!

Happy 4th!


How fun Kim, Your pictures were so fantastic and interesting, I almost felt like I got to visit too! So very glad you enjoyed your Birthday Weekend away. I agree with you though, I ALWAYS say the best part about going on vacation is...coming home! Happy 4th. Cyndi

It makes me so happy to see you so happy with your trip to Savannah. Thanks tons for sharing such beautiful, colorful pictures with us and letting us feel the excitement along with you. Happy Independence Day, Kim!


What a fun trip! I forget that I am not the only one who lives in a 'hot' climate! But, at least my hot is without humidity most of the time! Happy 4th of July! Love your post!

renee finberg

i have never been to savannah...but dying to get there.
thank you,


Going to Savannah is on my bucket list !!
So glad you had a good time.
love, bj


Awesome pics, as always, they (and you) are so inspiring :)


Beautiful. I think Savannah is a neat place. Next to Charleston, New Orleans, and St. Augustine, Savannah ranks up there as a favorite of mine, too, Kim!

GIVE AWAY will be posted by tomorrow morning-there's a peak preview of one of the items-go check it out and send everyone over to get their names in Monday morning.


Hi Kim,
I hope you had a wonderful week~end too!! Thanks so much for sharing your very special trip to Savannah with all of us. I enjoyed it so much!
Huggs, Nancy


Beautiful photos! Nice blog. Will be visiting again.


Looks like you had the best birthday! Your house is sooo darn cute. Who wouldnt wanna go home to that. I love that yellow.

Becky from Tennessee

Kim, wasn't the Olde Pink House wonderful??
The she-crab soup is the best I've ever had!
Of course, living in middle Tennessee, we
don't get much FRESH seafood here.
Where were the brightly colored shops and
the COOKIES bakery? Was that on Tybee?
I've missed those places and would like to
visit them the next time we go to Savannah.
So glad you had such a special birthday!

Bobbie Lynn

what a great place and your photos are wonderful. Thanks you for sharing your trip with us. Good to see you back safe at home. : )


Where do you like to thrift in Savannah? We stop over each time we travel from Florida to North Carolina but haven't done much exploring! I'd appreciated your suggestions.

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

  • "It's people like yourself that make everything beautiful and worthwhile." ~ 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
