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

Sweet Cottage Dreams

Oh you are just the cutest little girl!!! Maggie, have fun on your walk. I shall be taking Duhgall and Fiona out later.

You have the same leash as Fiona, too!!!

Have a terrific day!
Becky, Spencer, Duhgall & Fiona


Okay, but only because Maggie said so.

I'll let me two dogs drag me around the neighborhood.


We are doing that tonite, with my baby Payno and my grandson Dubbs (our furry babies) lol.
Have a wonderful day!


Sydney says WOOF WOOF to Maggie....and here at our Casa everyday is Take your Dog for a Walk

Have a great day Kim,
Kathy :)


Jigsaw will be walking to get a decaf soy cappuccino this's a beautiful day in St. Louis!


That little face is about the cutest thing ever! What a precious one. I wish I could walk with y'all. I'm going to be walking in St. Augustine and trying to clean the house there before weekend company. I have friends who have fourth graders, and that equates to a St. Augustine field trip! ;-)

Love to you and Miss Maggie...


Sheila :-)


Awww.... I've missed you Miss Maggie! Have fun on your walk with that beautiful mama of yours :)

love to you both,


Hi just found you... I *love* your blog and will be back often.
Hugz ..Betty

Hi Kim,
Oh how I wish my sweet "Kona Dog" was still with us, she pasted away two years ago and we still can not bring ourself's to have another pet.
So I will pass this request from Miss Maggie on to my daughter who has two beautiful boxers.
Enjoy your day,


Oh, Kim, she is simply precious!

I'd take my dogs for a walk. Except for the fact that they are farm dogs, and are simply outside, all the time. Putting them on a leash would be heinous. At least, to them. :-) But they will walk with me to the mailbox, never fear (after all, they have to protect mom from the coyotes, and the passing trucks. :-) ).

Sami Melton

Okay Maggie! I'll pass that on to Dapher Doo and she will agree! We'll have to load up little guy in the little red wagon and waddle around the block a time or two... Have a great day!
P.S. Kim, I adore my soup tureen!


Enjoy your walk. I have a cat ... we'll cuddle.


I'll be sure that Leto goes for a walk today! Thank you, Miss Maggie!


She is SOOOOO cute!!!!! Lucy and Ricky get upset if only one gets taken on a walk - I can't handle both of them (that's 160 pounds of dog all together!) so I'll have to get some help. :)


Kelly Ballard

I'd like to take my little Bumbee to work. She is an adorable miniature Dacshund. She is just so protective of me that she barks ferociously at all the customers that come in to the shop. She is not a good shop dog.

Second Hand Chicks


Kim, Please tell that sweet little girl that my dog, Rascal takes me for a walk every day. Then he takes his daddy for a walk every day, too. And then while you're at it give her a big hug.

Izzy says "Yay! A special dog walking day!" Izzy is concerned about one thing...Humans have so many days dedicated to them receiving special treats - Halloween, Sweetests Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines Day, etc. Izzy would like to come up with a few days out of the year where all humans MUST give lots of yummy dog treat gifts to their best friends. Does Maggie have any ideas?

Ann and Izzy


Thanks for the INFO Maggie! My dogs wish it was their walk day!

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

Oh Maggie, I don't have a dog! But I will go across the street and see if I can walk Misty. Would that be ok? I love to "borrow" her when I can, because I love dogs so much. Have a good day Maggie, and say hi to Kim!

Tracie~My Petite Maison

Well, on Zeke's behalf dear Maggie - thank you! Hope you enjoyed your walk as much as he did his today. Happy October 20th and Take Your Dog for a Walk Day (you too, sweet Kim!).

Cindy Meguiar

Oh Maggie, you are so cute!! Jayce, Fresca, and Bella would LOVE to go for a walk but it is a little cool here this afternoon. So, until I can locate some very small, very warm sweatpants for Jayce ( the naked boy)....I am afraid he will have to stay inside....cuddled up in his pj's. And....although it really isn't fair....I just can't bear to take Fresca and Bella without Jayce. We will be looking for a warmer day later in the week!


Have a good walk Maggie!

Donna at Mourning Dove Cottage

Oh how cute!! Maggie is just the sweetest! I took my two babies for a walk today and they were really happy.




Every day should be walk-the-dog day.


Tell cutie her Daddy will walk her tonight until her lil heart's content


WILLIE has already been out for a spell. We both love your leash Maggie!


Maggie ~ you are so adorable & what a pretty leash you have. Hope you enjoyed your walk ♥


I am thinking Maggie is "THE BOSS" of the house! Hugs!

Fay Marie

Well Maggie,
I hope you had a good walk and thanked Mummy for being so kind. You sure look classy in your yellow scarf. Kim, I hope you enjoyed it as much as Maggie.
Have a good night.

Fay Marie

Lavender Dreams

I walked for 45 minutes at a very dog friendly park today. I didn't see Maggie but I saw lots of her friends and said Hello all along the way! Hope you had FUN!

Kelly Ann

the girls told me it was the 19th...those sneaky puppy dogs...


Have fun on your walk, Maggie. Now you make sure you have Mommy post about your adventure! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)


That pup is so cute it just makes me grin!


Madeline thanks her!!! WOOF WOOF

Linda@Lime in the Coconut

I LOVE it...and missed it. I'll do a double manana! Tell maggie I promise!!

Mary Lou

Too bad you can't have cute leashes and take cats for a walk!
Mary Lou


Hello Kim,

How adorable! And how fun!

~ Gabriela ~


This is so funny! I was just sitting here talking with my dear sister who is here for a visit about all the silly "special days" they have,and found a website listng some of them, so it is so cute that Maggie had declared her own day. One site said October was Elephant Appreciation month! Since I don't have a dog I took my husband for a walk.
((hugs)) Rhondi


Oh no it is now the 21st and I didn't take Paisley for a walk. Will maybe we can get out today!

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
