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

~Ah! Maggie you are the sweetest with your red blankie. The ornaments really are the cutest things ever.

Merry Chrisatmas to you and yours!
~Melissa :)


awwwww....I wish sophiejane and maggie lived closer to one another....I just know they'd be BFFs!!!
Such cute ornaments...are they cross-stitched?


Merry Christmas Maggie,please tell your people we wish them a Beautiful Christmas and Joyous New Year! Seems to me you should start your own blog!


I have a hard time getting out from under my blanket in the mornings too...Very sweet ornaments.

Best Wishes for a warm and wonderful Christmas ~Natalie


At least our 12 inches of rain wasn't S*N*O*W!!!!! Poor baby, I know just how she feels, it is much colder here than if it was north. Love the ornaments - Pretty Maggie Merry Christmas and to your family. Blessings, Janet


Oh, those little pillow ornaments are just adorable! Now I'm picturing one of those made with the picture of Maggie peeking out of the sweater!

Hurray~we finally have a little Christmas weather in FL!!!! Stay warm.



Oh, those are the sweetest ornaments! Miss Maggie looks adorable. I'm sure they will look lovely on your tree.



I love the new profile photo Kim, so sultry.

Little miss Maggie is the most adorable thing ever. I need a Maggie. Love those ornaments.


Oh, Joey wishes he could see Maggie's ornaments for real! He thinks she's such a lucky dog and he would love to have a pretty red blanket to snuggle under, just like hers. I think he just added it to his list for Santa Claus! ~Adrienne~



Now Kim that's what sets you apart from all the rest...........there's showing us this absolutely awesome gift, then there is making it a complete and wonderfully talented photojournalistic story.

Thank you. Your talents (and dear tiffany's too) are entertaining and well as inspiring.


just precious!

Those ornaments are adorable and Maggie is just like my two maltese.. They climb under the blankies this time of years.


Merry Christmas Kim AND Maggie! Love those ornaments! So cute!
Nugget and Dylan like to cuddle under blankets too. If they come out, I'll be sure to show them Maggie's gifts!


Awwww, I'm with sweet Maggie...stay under the covers where it's warm! :-) Those ornaments are beyond adorable!

Becky from Tennessee

Oh Kim, how absolutely adorable.
Maggie is just the sweetest and
cutest! My Katie is the same
way about snuggling under for a
long winter's nap....only she
isn't quite as sweet when you
wake her! I get a "smiley"
(more like snarl) grin. LOL
I agree with Vicki about Maggie
needing her own blog. How cute
would that be????
Merry Christmas!


They are SO cute and so is Maggie! My doggie cuddles under blankies too! What would we do w/o our furry kids?
Happy Day Kim

Betty Jo

I'm so glad Maggie isn't at my house right now! We've had more snow than in 13 years. I'm stuck on a hill!! I wished for a white Christmas but not quite this much. I'm a FL gal too, and shivering right along with Maggie. ♥


Absolutely adorable! We had a dachsund when my kids were young and she loved being covered in a blanket or afghan.


What cute ornaments. :)

I'm with Maggie, it's snuggle time!


SO CUTE...what a sweet ornament and so tiny, just like little Maggie! Merry CHRISTmas to everyone at Daisy Cottage...


How CUTE! Maggie and her new goodies are adorable! Are you having a cold spell in Florida? It's FREEZING here in NY!


What cute ornaments! My dogs love their blankies too! MArry Christmas!


Hi Kim and Magggie,

Oh my goodness - the ornaments are adorable - just like Maggie and the home she lives in.

Wishing you and your family a Beautiful and Happy Cristmas and a New Year filled with Joy and Blessings.
Erin and Bentley


adorable, how did she do that?

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality

Awww,those are just precious! Merry Christmas dear friend.


Maggie ...your lovely ornaments are adorable. And, you look so cute! I would stay under the covers too! Just about this time of year, we could all use a little more time under the covers! Best wishes for a Happy Holiday!

Hi Kim,
Ms. Maggie would never come out of her blankie if she lived here - we had 17 inches of snow yesterday! The neighbors dogs were loving it - playing and running around in the snow.

Those Maggie gifts were so cute! But not as cute as Ms. Maggie. She is the most photogenic doggie.

Come on by and see our snow!

Kim -

We too were hit with the blizzard and have drifts over three feet! My poor little dogs stepped off the porch and disappeared completely! Not to worry, they are now warm and dry; cuddled up in blankets like Maggie.

I love the third picture of Maggie, she is SO cute! I love the sweet ornaments she received, too. Hope you're have beautiful Christmas holidays.


What darling doggy ornaments. Blessings!

How totally sweet. Merry Christmas to all at Daisy Cottage xx


My 3 year old daughter just got a morning chuckle at that photo of Maggie!! How sweet is she?!??! Love the ornaments and was just catching up w your blog and your dollhouse decor is just the cutest I've ever seen. How fun.

Merry Christmas, Kim! Your Maggie is too cute. And those ornaments! I love those, too! Your cottage is wonderful and so cute and Christmastime.

Maggie is adorable!!! I love your beautiful home and Christmas decorations... Merry Christmas!!!

cindy~my romantic home

Those are so adorable! What I really love is the new photo of you on your sidebar! You look gorgeous!!!

I was looking at for something on my blog yesterday and I found the very first comment you left me...I can't believe that was over 3 years ago! Time flies!

Merry Christmas Kim! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!


Awww, she is too cute. My doggies love snuggling under blankets as well this time of the year.

Aroo Studio

So cute! I love these. And, they are perfect for overzealous wagging tails near the tree too!


Are you not freezing??? I'm shivering as I type, Kim! Love Maggie's ornies. They are SO cute!

Hi Kim,

Tiffany did a beautiful job with those ornaments of Maggie. I feel the same way about staying under the covers as Maggie.
I had to buy some flannel pj's to keep warm at night. Then I hear we will have a warm Christmas day of 80 degrees so I am sure the tourists will be happy and so will we! We will go to the beach to snap a few photos after lunch on Christmas day. What are you going to do on Christmas day? Your colorful, heart warming blog always makes me smile! Thank you so much!
Enjoy your Christmas!
Thanks, JolieAnne


Those are so cute! Give Miss Maggie big Christmas hugs for me to keep her warm ;)



Poor Maggie! Bruno feels the same way. Cold is not his friend. :)

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you 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
