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

Hello Kim,

Would you ship all these brownies to Canada?
They look so yummy! :O)

~ Gabriela ~


If only I could just reach through my computer monitor and grab a brownie! They look so yummy. I'll be back tomorrow to visit. Can't wait to see Cindy's house!

The Pleasures of Homemaking

Those look yummy! I'm having some pumpkin pie right now with my morning coffee so I'll save the brownie for later!

Can't wait to see Lori and Cindy's homes!



Oh how lovely!! I get the yummiest ideas and recipes from you. Problem is, I haven't kept to a diet since I started reading your blog!! :) I am looking forward to seeing those homes of your friends. I am sure they are lovely!! :) I await even more inspiration from you!!

Julia @ Drawn to the Sea

Brownies & grapes? I'll be right over.
A wonderful day to you :-)

Jan Hamill

:) Jan


I love brownies for breakfast!!! Thanks so much!

Nicole M.

Mmmmmmm....brownies! My neighbor made chocolate chip pecan cookies last night, and she let us have a few. They were so yummy!

Aren't friends and neighbors fun??


Good morning Kim :)

I would LOVE to have a brownie right now! They have all the basic morning food groups anyway, right? ;)

I can't wait for the upcoming tours....

love you,


Oh yummy! Thank you friend.


Good morning my sweet friend
Brownies for breakfast! What a perfect thing to have on a dull rainy Monday at home. Too bad I couldn't just reach through the screen and grab one. Thanks for showing us pictures of your friends' houses. They are so beautiful. None of my friends have interesting homes :( That's why I enjoy blogs so much, especially yours. Like Rue I can't wait for the tours!
Happy Monday
((hugs)) Rhondi


Hi Kim,
They look wonderful but I just got finished with my coffee and had a zucchini muffin...have you ever made these? They are delicious.
Your Hoosier Friend,


Looking forward to the house tour!


I sat down at the computer with MY breakfast, which was a big fat homemade brownie and a big glass of milk...and what do I see? Kim is having a brownie for breakfast, too!? YUMMMM! Can't wait to see those pictures!

Sami Melton

Yes Please! Yeah! More pictures of a fabulous house - So excited!

Fay Marie

Good morning Kim,
Thanks for the brownie. So delicous. Only you can make brownies so good. Looking forward to seeing Cindy's home tomorrow.
Fay Marie


i just had pumpkin pie for breakfast why not have a brownie :) yum!


Excuse me Kim, It is not possible you forgot the 'rule?' You cannot show delicious food without a recipe attached. I was Roostering this weekend (see my blog), one of the Rooster people showed a Mimosa with breakfast. YAY, Mimosas and Brownies, now where did you put the recipe. . . please. Blessings, Janet

Lavender Dreams

I would most certainly like a brownie this morning! I tried to make healthy brownies awhile back but that really defeats the purpose! heehee!

on my way over for a brownie!! Thanks for sharing! Yumm!

Lynn Cliburn

Oh my of my favorites for breakfast!lol!

Kim, could you please email me your address again? I want to mail your little package out this week. My new pc crashed (Yes, it is a one in a million chance occurrence) and I lost all of my address contacts...again!

How was your week-end? Sounds like you may have been busy with your camera.
I have had a brownie mix sitting on my pantry self all summer. I thought I was waiting for cooler weather. I am having second thoughts about now.
I look forward to tomorrows post.
Until then,
Nancy M.


Brownies are my achilles heel for sure! I'm obsessed with Duncan Hines dark chocolate brownie mix. xo, suzy


Funny thing, I was just contemplating making brownies yesterday! Now I will just have to do it. I can't wait to see your friends' houses, I posted about Yvonne's house last week. It was perfect!


black eyed susans kitchen

Hi Kim, You just reminded me of that movie Practical Magic. They also had brownies for breakfast I believe. You know that I will not be happy now until I bake we will have ours after dinner. Thanks for the sweet post.
♥, Susan


These look so darn good...and I'm so excited that you're sharing your friends homes with us. Yiippeee, gotta go call my dd and tell her,she loves your house too.


Looks good enough to eat! :)

Ann at the Handley Bungalow

Oh boy - I can hardly wait! Your friends' homes are awesome. Now I want to go bake some brownies!!!

Brenda Kula

Can't wait for more home tours! I haven't had a brownie in I don't know when! Surely there is a sign somewhere that says: Life is short. Eat a brownie."

Alison Gibbs

Mmmmmm.. yummy looking brownies
Looking forward to seeing your friends homes


O.K. Now you've done it! This picture just about caved me in. Now I'm going to have to bake some. Oh, well. It's a great idea anyway.

Mary Lou

Hi, Kim!
I love brownies, but have never thought about them for breakfast. Nice thought. I do, however, eat pie or cake or cobbler for breakfast. Oh, cupcakes might be good, too.
Mary Lou


Oh I can't wait to go with you to see your friends house :) Ooops, pardon me for talking with my mouth full of brownie!



Girl I am counting Weight Watchers points right now. :) Brownies are my greatest weakness. That whole plate could disappear in a heartbeat.

Can't wait to see your friend's homes. It's so much fun to peek in other places. Kind of like legal window peeking.


Darn! I knew I should have stopped by this morning. Are there any left? Probably not, it's almost 10PM. Gosh, they look so wonderful.



Yum! My favorite breakfast (well, I'm afraid it's my fav lunch and dinner too)! laurie


Love it...when my husband goes out of town, on occassion, my kids and I have cookies for dinner and it is a BIG hit!

:) T


Those look soo good Kim!
I've been "bad" for breakfast too lately.. I just posted the recipe for a really yummy apple bread I've been having for breakfast. I think you would enjoy it ;)
Take care,

Jolie Anne

Hi Kim,

I have to tell you my sister's name is Kim also and she was named after Kim Novak, the actress.

I am so glad to see more house tours on your blog. You sure know what things to photograph because it always brings out the best of each home. And the homes are so welcoming!

Ashley Schott

Hello, hello! I am brand new to the blogging world and to the nesting world, as I am newly a wife:) My mother-in-law introduced me to your blog and I am in absolute heaven! I love all the homes you feature, your writing style and above all your home. Your gorgeous yellow cottage in all it's inner saturated-color glory is just gorgeous. I'm so glad to have found you:)
P.S. Brownies and/or cookies for breakfast is the best way to start your day off in my book!

Mike Geary

Yummmmm! Those look soooooooooooooo good! =)

Rob H

OK, I gotta stop reading these food blogs. I absolutely MUST have a brownie right now!

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

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
