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've lost 21 pounds since Sept, so not eating many Christmas goodies this year. It all looks yummy, but sorry I can't help you out. Whoa! Wait!! Is that lemon pound cake I see in your beautiful photo? If so, I might just catch the next plane to FL!! Put the coffee on!! ♥

Daisy Cottage

Come on down Betty Jo!

My sweets were finished off this to start with a New Year and healthier eating but sure tasted good !

I'll take some of yours if you'll help me get rid of mine!! I put everything in the freezer yesterday. I just CAN'T devour one more thing.


I made about a million of those little spritzer cookies and have eaten about half of them, I think! Mmmmm...Christmas cookies for breakfast, a time-honored tradition. :)



I didn't bake any cookies for Christmas...
I'm thinking maybe it's time! Yours look so yummy!


OOO no you don't !! We have too many around here, too. I had to make some popcorn yesterday, just to get the sweet taste out of my mouth!! :)


Yummy! I don't mind if I do!

Maggie Mallard

How very sweet of a post. lol.....I would love to share these with you because my waist line left about the time the Nixons left the White House. Gosh hard to believe its been gone that long.
I sure missed my mom and Little Mamas cooking this year. It never the same with both of these lovely ladies in heaven instead of with us during the holidays. Well their with us but not the same.
Happy New Year Kim


Nothing says loving better than a mom in a kitchen! How blessed you are. If only we could reach in and sample her goodies. I don't think you ever needed to concern yourself with a disappearing waistline.


Hi Kim
That's sweet of you to offer but I've had more than my quota of cookies for the year :)
Hugs, Rhondi


Those goodies look DELISH - but considering all the baking I've done (and the fact that I've probably put on 5-10 lbs.), I'm gonna have to pass. What IS it all, BTW? Inquiring minds wanna know~! =-)


Oh my, it all looks delish! My mother made the most enticing and delicious goodies each year too ~ one of the many things I miss now. It would be delightful to join you for the goodies and coffee ~ you are one of the most 'real' bloggers I've had the opportunity to meet in blogland.


Your Mom's cookies look wonderful. I love the ones with powder sugar on them. I took a few when visiting your Blog. I will have to get serious and make some for me who is the only one who eats them in our household. Visit my Blog and get an old family recipe for salami rolls. I love to share recipes with others.

Mary Lou

Yummy! I just give up at Christmastime. My daughter sent me cookies, and my sister in law always bakes for the family, and this year I made peppermint bark. You just can't worry about a waistline until after the holidays.

Peg Gilham

ohhh so good. It looks awful tempting since I have my homespun magazines and heading to the couch. It is really snowing!
Have to bone up on more ideas for next year!
I love Maggie!!!


I did a little baking myself...I posted pictures of the cookies I baked and I can't stop eating them either!


oh wow can't get enough of these yummies!

Debbie from Texas

They do look delicious but we have alot left over here. Think I will freeze some and give away the rest!! We haven't stopped eating for days and I could use intervention myself. Here's to healthier eating in January :) but it was fun!!
Debbie in Texas


We had friends who were supposed to come over yesterday for coffee and dessert. They didn't come (had to get the hay for their horses in, and it was coming LATE).

So I have a whole pie. An entire burnt sugar cake, a tray of saltine toffee, and half a batch of chocolate walnut fudge.



Marfa (an unstamped letter)

Ohhhh I so wish you were here with those delicious looking sweets. Yummy yummy for the tummy!


Looks delicious! I'd love to sample, but I just can't get them off the screen!!!


Thank you I take one of those buttery, powdered sugary, round cookies....well, maybe three!
I am on a sugar overload myself. Whew, somebody stop me!


Debra Howard

Oh I do understand your dilemma. My mom sent me pumpkin nut bread and a couple tins of homemade fudge with nuts. Yummmo. I can not stay out of it. I have to get it done before the new year.

Lavender Dreamer

You can't eat just ONE! heeheehee! Looks wonderful!


I'll be right over! (Smile) The coffee.. I can almost smell it brewing and I'd love a couple of those cookies. They are my favorite!


Yummy, but where are the recipes -- shouldn't ever tempt us with such gorgeous pictures and then leave us to dig up recipes for ourselves.

I baked pumpkin bread, cranberry bread, banana pineapple bread, and brownie bite cookies dribbled with white chocolate -- so good, but am always looking for more recipes to add to my files.

Anyone have a really moist lemon quick bread? I lost my favorite recipe and others I've tried just don't measure up.

Keep nibbling, Kim -- you always look gorgeous.



Hahaha, I was eating Christmas cookies when I sat down with a hot cuppa tea to read your blog Kim - if anyone needs an intervention it is ME this year.

You make me smile.

Gotta go and remove the crumbs off my keyboard now......

Kathleen Grace

I have waved the white flag on cookie eating! Just can't take one more. I've actually thrown some away just to save me from myself. I'm thinking January is going to bring the usual attempt to eat more sensibly!


They look wonderful,enjoy!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Gosh they look good! Do I see pumpkin bread?

Mary Bernhagen

I think I just gained 10 pounds looking at those wonderous treats! Shame on me! :)


Sorry, I just couldn't! I woke up Monday, went into the kitchen, and threw away a bunch of fudge and cookies. My sugar tub is low, now that my baking season is done, and I don't want to buy anymore! I didn't even have pop all week....V8 is my friend!



THIS IS A LATE COMMMENT! And Question. I just saw your blog today and I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE those round desserts on the last picture. The dough colored ones, what are those called???

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!

  • "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
