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 Kim, Every now and then we get over to the Renningers in Adams Town is such a fun way to spend the day...and get some very good antiquing in. Looks like you had a good day.

That's a wonderful kind of tired, Kim! The photo of you and Janet is very nice, thank you for sharing ~ wish I could have been there to browse and of course, say hi!


Crap, I knew I should have asked you if you were going. I was there too..up from Ft. Lauderdale. I had a great time and found lots of fun treasures that I can use in my creations. Glad to hear you had fun too (but then again, how could you not have fun!).


Oh how nice Kim....sounds like a great time....I love to visit Donna, she along with you were my first blogging experiences :)

I wanted to pop in and wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving...

All the best,
xo Kathy :)

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality

Oh, how fun! Glad you got to go, I have always wanted to check out Renninger's. And glad you & Donner got to meet up again, I wish we had all had the chance when I was down there.

I also wanted to wish you and your family a very Blessed Happy Thanksgiving,

I know that feeling. My mind is overwhelmed with all that I saw, but also thinking ahead to all the possibilities for what I dragged home!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio & The Comforts of Home

It sounds like the best time! Wish I could have been there. Looking forward to seeing your finds.

Donna, The Decorated House

Hello Sweet Kim~
I do know that kind of tired!
It was so wonderful seeing you again.
And I love that picture.

Lots of Hugs!


What fun. Is that a twice a year market? Or are they a permanent sale fixture on the outskirts. I didn't see it when I was there one Christmas. I love it when I meet someone I blog with. YAY! Happy Thanksgiving to you and family. Blessings, Janet

Janet (Shabbyfufu)

Definitely the market has changed since I have been going for the last probably 15 yrs or so.....but still some good things for all. So nice to finally meet you too darlin' girl! Happy Thanksgiving to the McCole family from our family~ xoxo~ Janet


Glad you had fun, Kim. And before too terribly long, I want us to get together. It's been too long since I saw you eyeball to eyeball.

Wish I had been there!! There aren't many places like that here in Texas except for Roundtop in the Fall and Spring. Wish we had more!! Glad you had so much fun!!


Sounds like so much fun! I WANT that little green table!

I love Mount Dora and Renningers! Dragged my own two daughters there numerous times when they were younger, and can look around my house and see things I got there. So glad you got to go, and I look forward to seeing the treasures you got. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Anne

That's a beautiful photo of you and Janet. She always seems like a lovely person. xx


You're so fortunate, you take a beautiful picture. Nice one of you and Janet, sounds like it was a fun day.

Kimberly Ryan Art

What a beautiful photo of you two! Thank you for the sweet compliments:) I hope we meet again soon, hugs xoxo Kimberly

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

LOL! I had to giggle when I heard "happy tired". I use that term all of the time and my hubby said he had never heard of "happy tired" or "good tired" as I sometimes call it. He says that tired is just....well...tired!


Sounds like fun! I'll have to make it over there one day.

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!

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
