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'm ready too!! My daughter and I spent the whole afternoon yesterday bringing fall into my home. Sounds like it is on the way with 69* one evening this week. Yoo hoo! Now we can take those little road trips and enjoy them !

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio & The Comforts of Home

I am starting to be in the fall mood. I think once I get moved into my new home I will be much more ready.

Love the animal print umbrella!


Love your flower pictures. The raindrops on them makes them look so fresh. I love rain :)


Oh...the water droplets on the allamanda are pure art!

Where we are now (Argentina) It is COOOOLD....and it feels WONDERFUL!

I'm ready...when we get back. Yep.


I'm ready too! Now only if this darn weather would cool off!

Im having a paint party, feel free to check it out!

The Beautiful Life

Me too!! I've been ready for MONTHS! :)
I'm a native Floridian, but I swear I was meant to be up in New England! Not one for the heat AT ALL!

Maybe if we all wish really, really hard?? :)




I can not wait for fall! I love the cooler weather here in FL, there are always more yard sales and they electric bill goes down! :)


This morning it is lovely and cool. The sun is shinging an dthere is a slight breeze. It's the first day that's felt like fall. I've got all the windows in the house open and letting the fresh air flow through every room. It's wonderful!
Hope you enjoy the day.

I'm so ready for fall but not so much for winter!

Lavender Dreams

Good morning! It's a beautiful day in the mountains! I'm having to wait a little to walk's too cool now! Have a great day!

Hi Kim,
Fall has been upon us for a bit here in PA. I put all of my fall decorations up the day the children return to school, end of August, it's tradition. They come home that first day and it's a breath of fresh air for them. We will go to several pumpkin farms now that October is on us. I thought I was the only person in my world who loved fall so much. Oh La La there are lots of us!!
My dogs even act differently in the fall, all prancy and silly on their morning outings.

We have a tough couple of days on us here in my world, coming here makes me happy!

Thanks for the great home inspiration and love!



I am so ready for Fall as well...your images are lovely especially the one of your sweet little pup! Happy Monday to you...looks like you will be singing in the rain!

Mary Lou

Fall is my favorite!!! time of year! I love the colors, the crispness in the air, being able to open the windows and get nice breezes inside, wearing sweaters....I could go on and on. Happy Autumn, Kim!
Mary Lou


Ditto! Away with the 100 degree temps, the rain and humidity and bring on the cool breezes and falling leaves!!
The cypress trees here on the lake are beginning to change into every yellow/orange tone on the color wheel...I'll send you some pics. It's like a watercolor painting every single morning!!

Fay Marie

Good morning KIm,

Hope you are having a nice day. We have rain where I am as well in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Love the unbrellas and sweet little Maggie just waiting for whatever Mom decides. :>) Looking forward to tomorrow.

Hello Dear Kim!

It has been far too long since my last visit here at Daisy Cottage!:o) Happy Autumn to you my friend and like you I am so ready for this beautiful season. Your garden photos are lovely. Take care and enjoy a beautiful week.



Fay Marie

This is not my day. I just noticed I cannot spellvery well. KIm...unbrella. My apologies. Let me correct those.

Good morning Kim
Love the umbrellas.
How about that, now I feel better. ;o)

Fay Marie


I'm ready too. My flowers are really starting to fade so I'm going to be breaking out the mums and pumkins soon!


I love Fall and unfortunately it is still in the 90's w/ 100 percent in FLorida. We are actually going to be in the low 50's Tuesday and Wed. so I will definitely be outside the next couple of days! Love all your garden colors! Tammy

Hey sweets,

Southern Lady's Vintage

Me too Kim!! I am waiting with open arms for fall to arrive in Georgia!!


Darling Kim, I sooooo want to adopt Miss Maggie !! Living in New Zealand, I cannot express how w o n d e r f u l it feels to be on the edge of Summer. Our winter was cold and miserable. We don't get snow where I live (top of the South Island) but I am more than ready to put those thermals to rest. Our Springs are like an English Spring where the very ground smells sweet and the greens are blindingly vivid. Camellias are flowering now in their hundreds and the Wisteria is delighting us with its lilac blooms. I LOVE hearing how you are all decorating your homes with Pumpkins and are getting ready with those leaf brooms! Adore your blogs and photos, Kim. Hugs for you and pats for Miss M. Love Francesca


Kim, I don't think Maggie was waiting for fall, I think she wants to take a walk. Beautiful shots of your flowers anyway. I really do love that rooster pillow. It should look gorgeous in your home.


Oh yeah, fall prep's..bring on the soups and stews and the breads that go along with them!


Got Pumpkins?

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

I guess I'm ready for fall too, since it's going to get down in the forties tonight! Crazy, considering that the tornado sirens went off last night! Bring on the pumpkins!

Lynn Cliburn

We are getting ready for Fall up here in the Atlanta area!!Supposed to be in the high 40's Wed morning!

I LOVE your wild umbrellas...too CUTE!



Hi Kim my name is Madison. I loooooove your home and blog! You inspire me much and your creativity level is outrageous! You also take amazing photos! Maybe some day you can hop over real fast to my blog I will be visiting a lot! Oh and I also live in central fl. Do you live anywhere near Orlando?

Love, Madison


Hi Kim; I am so ready for Fall too, Love all of your photos,,, the sweet little doggy with the coat,,, adorable. We are finally going to be getting some cooler days,, I am going to buy some Mums this weekend... and maybe a pumpkin,,,,,,,, thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers... have a great week.

The romance chick

What beautiful photo's! as usual!


For NW Oregon, we have had little rain. The nights are getting colder, we are expecting rain this week, and I have a fire going in my woodstove! Feels like fall in here right now! Your blog always tells me to relax! Karen


Hey! I was in your neighborhood yesterday visiting friends and again today visiting a friend at a school nearby, and I thought of you. Hope all is well, Kim. I've been without my computer, and I hope to have it back next week so I can blog again. See what I missed???? Your wonderful drawing! Happy Anniversary to you and Daisy Cottage. Love you lots...


Sheila :-)


FALL???? Did you forget, I know where you live. FALL???? Not for at least another month or maybe two, sorry!!! I can't believe how COLD - BRRR it's been up north ILL & NH all summer. My girlfriend had a fire in the fireplace several times in NH. GADZ - spread some of that coolness (not cold) around!!! Don't forget Kelee's Pet Parade at tomorrow -- I know Miss Maggie will want to see it. Blessings, Janet

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
