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 am laughing at the stack of books. Have almost the same exact ones in a stack by a window, you know what they say about great minds.

Jolie Anne

Is that a painting of Maggie on the table? in the yellow frame? Very nice. There is a photographer that lives in my small town and she is so amazing. I am planning to take my (5)dogs to this old church we have in town to have their photos taken on the front steps. I love most photos of most dogs...Maggie is one of my favorites.
She should have her own book!

Blessings to you, Kim, in the New Year,

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

Ha! Not that I know anything . . . but maybe if you put the camera away for awhile. . . . Just sayin'.


I bet Maggie is under the bed or underneath that red and white check tablecloth! I think I saw her on Facebook mumblining something about how annoying you are with your new camera.
Love the bowl of hearts!


I just don't know where she could be........tsk tsk Put away your new camera and I bet she will magically appear..........JAN


haha...behind you watching every step!


Cute Cute! I love your style! Come visit my blog, I think you will like my new design!


That looks like the work of Fifi Flowers!! Am I right?


Teresa...Blooming on Bainbridge

Well here she is!
Snuggled up on the couch...
here in Bainbridge...
with Doogan!


MAGGIE, where are you? Here girl....



I think Maggie has run off with Lil' Dog! I too received a new camera from Santa and have been chasing everyone around who will sit still....if they come back I'll let you know!!


Shes in the kitchen finishing off the last of the Christmas goodies!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Maggie who????


Did you look in the dollhouse? She just might fit in there...


Oh, I promised her I wouldn't tell. Maybe a tiny bite of a Christmas goodie would draw her out!

Lavender Dreamer

We're in Florida now..but she's not here! Is that a new photo of her?


I have the feeling Maggie is NOT ready for her close-up. :)

Debbie L.

Shhh... she scampered away muttering something like "I might as well make the best of it and go powder my nose for Mommy's pictures. I think what she really wanted to say was "I WOULD RATHER BE CHASING LIZARDS" LOL

Happy New Year Kim and Maggie:)


Please tell us-
What kind of camera did you get?


Oh- and also let us know when she reappears!


Let's see, the last time I saw her she was lounging on a pillow and looking just swell. That was about the time that Fifi took out her brush and created something super special. Me thinks she is hiding under that cute tablecloth just below her cute portrait. ;-)


Sheila :-)


The word on the street is tht Maggie may have gone into hiding - a protection program, perhaps. She may be right there nearby but you don't recognize her new identity!


She's staying overnight with me here in IN,she left the picture so you'd be sure and miss her! lol

Toni @ The Tattered Cottage

Hi Kim -
Well, I have to be honest, she was over at my house earlier today playing with Bear. Okay...actually she was hiding from you and your new camera, but we sent her home just before dinner time.

Kimberly Ryan Art

I don't blame her I dont like my picture taken either:) Love to know what kind of camera! HUGS,Kim


She's not here!! No way! We aren't hiding her! No, why would you think that????

Well, she isn't but she sure would be welcome.

Did you look under the sofa?


Kim, you are so cute! And so is Maggie, who, I not hiding from you over here. ;)


You have a few books there. :) Your dog is so darn cute. My daughter wants a dog now that she owns a house but she thinks this kind might be too delicate for her guy. Thanks for sharing. Linda


Tehehehe, not telling.........

Meike die KreativePerle

Wow im the 300! :)

Best wishes from Germany,


Who knew she was so camera-shy?

MJ Smith

I think she went out to get a Starbucks!


I bet she is hiding from that new camera. A girl can only handle some many photos.


umm, bet she went for a walk :) You are too funny! Blessings, Janet

Tracie~My Petite Maison

I really hope she's on her way here to cheer up Zeke, he's a little lonely after the holiday, but is gearing up for the New Year celebration. Whatever Maggie is doing, I know she's spreading much cheer!


hehehe.... I hope she's on her way here so you'll have to come visit us to bring her home ... OR maybe we'll have to make a trip there instead ;)

I really wish I could help you with those delicious goodies your mom made, but I'm guessing they're gone now LOL

love you,

Betty Jo

LOL!! Put that new camera down and you'll find her. ♥

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

She said to tell you that she went for a walk, and she'll be back as soon as you set down that camera!


Maggie decided to come to KY for a visit with Daisy Mae...she showed up on our doorstep the day after Christmas and was mumbling about being chased by the paparazzi...ROFL!!! Love, Robyn

Kimberly Padilla

Maybe she is looking for lizards. :)


She is currently now playing with our VERY furry kitty cat named Romeo, here in Columbus, Ohio!

They jusdt finished watching hubs teach nephew how to make homemade noodles.

Life is good.

Maggie will be home shortly. She misses her Mommy.

Debbie from Texas

She must have run out to play with a new girlfriend! I am sure it is a beautiful day in Florida but here in Texas it is cold and raining!!!

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

  • "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!

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
