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

Hi Kimberly, what a great day you had, nothing better than shopping at flea markets... and the best picture here is that of you reflecting in the mirror.
Muchos cariños
María Cecilia

Daisy Cottage

Thank you Maria! I love how you call me "Kimberly".... usually I am only referred to that name when I am in trouble (like by my Mom when she would use my whole name) or at the doctor's office.



Hi Kim,

Oh my goodness - what a fun day we had with you on your visit to the Flea Market . . and what fun we had meeting all of your creative friends. . . and getting to see all of their fabulous creations.
Thank you for sharing.
Erin - Bentley sends a big tail wag to Maggie. P.S. I love the photo of you in the mirror - you look beautiful in your adorable dress with jeans.

Lynn Paterson

So loved all your beautiful photos and writing about them. Especially liked the black dresser.....that was really sharp! Great embellishments! Where are you located? Your store looks really cute......really like the yellow paint. I have a store in Woodstock, GA.....might paint my store that color......really spunky!

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

I saw lots of things that would fit right in at Daisy Cottage! And alot of things that would be happy in my little cottage too!
You're so pretty in that picture of you in the mirror! I like the way you dress!


Thanks for a great post. I wasnt able to make it there! I was looking forward to your post! Love your outfit!

Ashley Schott

The fancy flea market looks like my personal heaven! Thank you for taking so many gorgeous pictures! I almost feel like I was there:)

Cheri Peoples

It all looks wonderful--I want one of everything.


and congrats on ALL THINGS COTTAGE


Thanks again Kim and Rue! I still can't believe I won! Looks like you had a lovely time marketing.....beautiful, beautiful things. Also, your outfit is darling!

Maggie Mallard

OH my this is my kind of day to spend. How wonderful all the neat pictures. I love the way you share with us. I can not wait to invest in a good camera.
Honestly it would be hard to not spend at every booth. lol

Daisy Cottage

Thank you all so much!!! And guess what? I'll take you next weekend to Mt. Dora! Remember when we went last year? Well a bunch of us are heading that way again on Saturday. Of course you'll be stuck with me. ;-)

Erin - thank you sweetheart! Maggie sends handsome Bentley a big kiss. Just don't tell Oliver. ;-)

Hi Lynn! I don't have a store and neither does Lori - but you may contact her over at her blog for more info on her items and paint sources. :-)

ahhhh, thank you dear Carol!!! (((hugs)))

Jackie, I'm sorry I missed you! And thank you too! Let's meet soon, okay?

Yay Michelle - you checked in! I've sent your info off to Rue! xoxo



I loved the green handkerchief/napkins from Erica's stand. Green is my favorite color.


Kim ... I got to the picture of you and your little black bag and had to comment asap... I love that bag and it is so cute... nice picture of you, too. Later, I have to go stroll through the rest of your post at a leisurely pace... isn't it funny how one thing will catch your eye?? Is it just me... or is it because I am "the bag lady" and I just love bags??


Hi Kim,
Thanks for bringing us along! I spy a few things that would have come home with me too!

Leigh, Tales from Bloggeritaville

Sigh.....WIsh I couldve attended! Oh, I couldve spent some cash...I guess it s better off I didnt. Though LOTS of cute things to be had!

Josephine Tale Pedder

Beautiful sunny pics Kim. Looks as if you had a great day! xx

Lisa @ BungalowAGoGo

Oh Kim, as always your photos are so wonderful! Gotta figure out my light button...glad you were able to hang with us--you made it the WHOLE day! :)
P.S. Thanks for the wonderful introduction to your bloggers!

Rose - The Center of My Self

You make me feel like I was there with you, eating Fig Newtons - lol! Great, fun, interesting stuff from some obviously great, fun, interesting people. I have that same pie table but mine's brown right now; I'm soooo gonna paint it white after seeing this one. Love your hair in your pic! Soooo pretty!

Rochelle Gaukel

I am crushing on that red dresser too! Could use that in my studio for storage....oh well - florida is so far away from me! :)


You not only make Florida look beautiful at any time of year, but you make it look cool and comfortable, too. You are an artist, my dear!


What a great day! I love all the "loot"...especially your new apron and painting! Fun!

Elizabeth Marchus

Hi Kim,
What a fun day! I love strolling through the flea markets you just never know what you will run across or who you will see"Like a blogging friend"
I do love the RED dresser that certainly caught my eye!
Your photos are always so pretty to see. I enjoyed your post very much today.
Take care and have a blessed week,


Kim, you took some awesome photos! I especially love the one of you- absolutely adorable.

And I think your purse looks grand with your darling outfit!

Thanks so much for sharing!!

black eyed susans kitchen

Thank you Kim, for that awesome tour of the Fancy Flea Market. There was a lot of creative craftiness going on there. There were too many things that I liked best to choose just one.


Ok, I'm mad at myself! I forgot!!! At least, there's spring to look forward to, eh? ok, First Christmas, THEN I'll jump into spring - my birthday is in springtime.
I really have to get better organized and remember all these great venues you blog about!!!
btw, have you seen my giveaway??? Come on over and check it out!

and while there, take a look at the how-to I posted on my victorian purse ornaments.


You are so stinkin' cute Kim! I love your whole outfit :)

What a fantastic Flea!! I wish we had one here like that. Although I would probably spend WAY too much ;)

Congratulations to Michelle!!! I'll send it out right away.

Love you sweet friend...

RHoda @ Southern Hospitality

Hey, Kim! Those are such great photos, oh I wish I could have gone to the Fancy Flea. I know I would love it. ANd you, my dear, look adorable in that pics, love your cute outfit and the purse, your darling curly hair, and those boots. Perfect! Ms. Artsy girl. xoxo

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss

Hi Kim! It was fun accompanying you on this outing, seeing all the beautiful wares, and meeting your sweet friends. Hopefully by next spring, I will be able to actually visit some of the great places you post about. Our new home in "Hooterville" is only about 20 miles west of you!

Daisy Cottage

Thank you everyone!!!

And Miss Shari - you will be my neighbor!!
Please let me know when you are here!



Kim, thanks so much for posting about the Fancy Flea earlier in the week. I never would have known about it, or had the chance to attend. Loved it! Also, you took some great shots of all the wares. It was great talking to you and I'm heading to Mt Dora on Friday (thanks to you reminding me!) Can't wait! Keep me posted on any other great flea markets/vintage sales in our area.

Daisy Cottage

Ahhh Kim you are SO welcome! It was wonderful seeing YOU! Okay, let's hook up on Saturday if we can... call or text me.



Now that is my idea of perfection. I wish we had something as beautiful and fun here where I am. Thank you for sharing your beautiful day so we can all enjoy it too.

sweet cottage dreams

What a beautiful day it was!! Sure wish I could have been there....I do recognize that street sign though! :)

You look fabulous in your adorable outfit!!!


Congrats to Michelle! Lucky gal!

The Beautiful Life

What a beautiful day it WAS! So glad I got to chat for a bit with you. And I was so surprised to scroll down and see Sean's face -- I didn't know his name (or that he had a booth there) but I knew his face from the fact that he and another kind gentleman helped load the huge grain cart table into my car that afternoon over at Angie's shop! Small world! :)

Beautiful pictures, by the way!!



I really wanted to make it down there! I Just didnt get the chance. Looks fun! Maybe for the nexy one.

Daisy Cottage

I would have loved to have met you Wendy!

One day!

Kim, I have been gone for awhile. Hubby and I were in Chicago for a wedding.
I enjoyed browsing with you. Thanks for the Etsy heads up.
I loved that you found a mirror to take a rare picture of you Kim.
I found many items that would look good around my home.
Great fun!
Nancy M

Daisy Cottage

And I missed you SO much Nancy!
Your comments ALWAYS brighten my day!

I hope you had fun at the wedding! Chicago must have been gorgeous at this time of year.



My goodness, I gasped over that red dresser..OH MYYYYYYYYYY..drool drool.

I have that table cloth that you took a picture of. Found that at a yard sale!!

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
