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

Your flowers are beautiful. It is so hot and dry flowers and garden are gone. We hit the road tomorrow for our trip to your state.........


Loved hearing about your weekend. Lovely, happy flowers. And I just must say that your blog always makes my heart happy.
Love & Hugs,


What beautiful flowers. Amazing what just a touch of color can add. Flowers are always so beautiful after just being planted.

Lovely pictures.

I'm Julia

Vinca & hibiscus... my very favorites. Lovely photos :-)




Beautiful photos Kim. I'll be back...I love giveaways and I always love visiting you.


Green home

Really they are beautiful. I like to grow flowers at home. I have grown many and i love it.


Kim, Your flowers are beautiful, last year we planted some hibiscus and now have a little nest of hummingbirds. Much to the whole families delight, we went out and bought a hummingbird feeder, hoping to never lose them!


Love your yellow chandelier -- did you put that together yourself? You are always so creative --

Have a wonderful day --

With all best wishes,



Things looking drab around Daisy Cottage? Impossible! Glad you had a wonderful 4th:>)


I did have a wonderful week. I'm glad to see Daisy Cottage is still in such beautiful bloom too. I have been on a hunt for your your Rustoleum Jade spray paint! Hy Home Depot and Lowes just don't know what "IN colors are! Hmpf! I'm trying another Lowes today. Wish me luck!

Elizabeth Ann

All the photos are beautiful, but I especially like the Hibiscus shots...wonderful idea to take a pic from the back, showing the coloful veins and green "petal holder". Glad you had such a lovely 4th!

Oh, and though it would be great to win a gift from Daisy, you make us happy every day, no matter!!

Hi Kim,

Love all your flowers. Glad you had a lovely 4th of July weekend. Looking forward to you give away asual. You always have such beautiful things as give-aways.

Hope you enjoy the rest of today, whatever you do.

Fay Marie


Wait a minute Kim! Back up. What is that yellow chandelier-looking beauty in picture #7?? It looks like it's on a pole. What IS that? It's gorgeous, with all that leafy and flowery detail!
Your flowers look very pretty. I keep going back for more flowers, when I certainly have more than enough! But they keep clearancing them, so it's really not my fault!


Everything looks very happy despite the heat. You were very good to brave it to tidy up and plant some new flowers. I'm waiting for some sales because, after all the rain, my flowers look pathetic.

Rose - The Center of My Self

Very nice Sunday blooms! The vincas spilling out of the hanging pot look very happy; they've always been one of my favorites since I was little and Mom had a patch of them by the front door. Love the hibiscus, too! Summer is for being outdoors, isn't it? I have a hard time being indoors in this wonderful weather, wanting to be out in the garden or walking or riding my bike down to the beach. Being unemployed right now is a temporary gift and I'm enjoying summer while I keep searching.

Nancy M.

Sunday is my favorite day of the week with church, friends and family filling our hearts and minds with love and inspiration.
Daisy Cottage is looking very happy.

Oh, Kim. I agree with Nancy M. Your place looks very happy indeed. I love to visit here in the morning with my coffee. It's an uplifting way to begin my day. Thanks for all that you do.


WOW such beautiful flower photos.

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
