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

Jodi Pruitt

Dear Kim,
I do so love reading your blog everyday, I delight in seeing what you do to your home. I also enjoy playing in my home as I call it. My husband says he never knows where his chair will be from one day to the other. You are a real inspiration to me and to so many others. I do not have a blog at this time, I have 3 boys and that seems to take up most of my time. Thank you for sharing all you do.

Jodi, Mississippi


Love your blog!


Gosh! You are so lucky to be able to travel! My husband had a stroke almost 11 years ago, and due to being his caregiver - I don't get away for more than a couple hours! I'd sure like to win your prize - I know I'd enjoy it!

Daisy Cottage



Your blog always makes me smile! Although I'm a Midwestern girl, I think I could be a Southern Lady long enough to attend such a fun celebration.

I am new reader to your blog. I love your "Daisy Cottage". It looks like you had a wonderful time in Savannah. Those cakes were gorgeous. By chance, did Edgar's Bakery make them? Also, I saw where you mentioned "White Flowers". If you ever visit Birmingham, AL; you have got to go to this shop. It is absolutely fabulous.

Thank You!
Oneonta, AL


Well, bless your heart for sharing! I loved it!


Wow, really makes me wish I lived on the other side of the globe!!! What a wonderful event, just amazing, thanks for sharing.
Back to lurking now lol...!

Ohh how wonderful givaways:) Of course i would like to take one with me home :)
I love the pumpkin picture, you sure had a great time:) Fell free to step by at my blog, i was in Switzerland and France, and also took some pics:) Have a nice day:)


Hi Kim, what a wonderful weekend you had .... I live in Australia and am getting sooo jealous of all your fall decorations - we call it autumn here and don't do any fall celebrations as you do but I'm thinking things might be different around here next year!!!
Just love your blog,


Hey Miss Kim! I've been thinking about you lately. For some reason my bloglines hasn't been updating and I've been missing what you are up to. Sounds like you had a great trip. I sure miss the south sometimes. Hugs, Jen


Wow! What a wonderful giveaway! It looks like you had a great time.


Good morning Kim :)

It looks and sounds like you two had a great time. I would love to have been there myself, although I think I would have died in the heat. We're having an unusually cold Fall this year.

How funny that they hadn't heard of blogs! I would have thought you would have been bombarded with autographs yourself!

Glad you're safe and sound back in Daisy Cottage :)

love you,


Your photos made me feel like I was there. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. What a blessing.
Love your blog.

Aloisia Tomschin

I'm not a southern girl, but I'm so glad that you share the south with me! Here in the midwest, we've been having SNOW this week, so to get to share in your fun weekend was just a breath of fresh air! Thanks!


So fun! Thanks for sharing!


Oh, count me in! I was sitting here, looking at the pictures, and thinking how much fun it would have been, to be able to go there with my mother (she lives in Atlanta--I'm out here in Oklahoma)...It looks like you had an absolutely grand time. Do count me in for the drawing please. I suppose winning this would be a good second to actually being there in person! Thanks for sharing! :-)

Rita Larson

We Southern Girls know how to go on a road trip don't we...Sounds like you had a great one. Thanks for sharing.

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
