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

Hey Kim, Congratulations on the new camera-I'm sure you'll figure it out in no time. Meanwhile, just keep hunting for Maggie....

Everyone at Daisy Cottage, have a Happy New year :)

Magie, Your safe under there but you'll want to come out for some lovin' soon.
Kim I was looking at cameras and thought I wanted a Kodak like you have (had). I'll wait now to see how you like the new one. I didn't know Magie was camera shy.
I can't wait to see what you do with the new camera.

Hi Kim,

What a great photo of Maggie!
I hope Maggie has a warm sweater because it may get colder this week, (yes, even in FL.) Maybe she could model her sweater for all of us Maggie fans! We would love to see it.
Glad you got a new camera, I did too. So maybe I can e-mail a photo of the "pink cottage" we live in with 5 dogs, AND 3 teenage boys! All the best to you as we
celebrate a New Year with so much to be thankful for.
Love, JolieAnne

Anxious to see which camera you have Kim. I am enjoying J's new little G11 for fun quick photos, but go back to the big ol' canon rebel for other times. It's a tad contrary, at times, though.

Molly will allow a couple of photos at a time. After that she looks at me like I'm trying to steal her spirit with that funny looking contraption!!

Bobbie Lynn

too cute.


oooo FUN!! my fave topic.....what kind did you get??


Oh lucky girl! What kind of camera is it? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a big new camera this year.


Oh, but, Maggie, you're such a beautiful subject - fuzzy, wuzzy or not.

Lavender Dreamer

How cute! We all need to run some of those calories off! Let's all RUN! lol


P. S. Rascal and I would like you to come see us on our blog until all this blows over.


Pretty funny! I am doing the same thing, but think after two months I have the hang of it. Keep clicking! (Do they click any more?) ~Kelly

That Maggie is too cute. What kind of camera did you get?



Ah sweet baby girl we would never in a million years tell your mommy where you are at. Every time I see a picture of you,you put a smile on my face. MERRY CHRISTMAS little one........JAN

Toni @ The Tattered Cottage

Quick Maggie....come over to my house Bear and I will hide you :)


Too cute! And I'm so jealous. I got a new camera for Christmas, and I'm happy with it, but I'd still do anything for an SLR, preferably a Rebel!




We'll never tell, Maggie! I know how to keep a secret. :-)




Hi Maggie, Take heart, your Mum is a smart cookie and will have the new camera mastered in no time. When you're not in hiding anymore, tell her I said thanks for dropping by my blog. It gave me a real thrill!

Lori Blackburn

I just discovered your blog last night and have spent this evening reading through the first year. I live in a town that was destroyed by a tornado, and all the "old" is gone. I love seeing it again, thanks to you. Maybe I can figure out how to make my new cookie-cutter house look more lived-in, thanks to your inspiration.

Dear Maggie,

We puppies feel your pain. The same thing happened to us. Our mommy got a new camera too. The human kids and adults are to fast for mommy, and because we lounge around mommy has used our quiet time to snap us. We should start a support group!

Hey Maggie
If she catches you NO Bow shots! Why do our people feel a need to pull a bow off a package and like an auto response reach over stick them on our heads!

I feel your pain bro!



What a cute post and a precious photo of Maggie too!
Can't wait to see more!


Run Maggie run!


Oh Maggie, could your Mummy ever take a bad picture of you? Don't hide for too long little girl, we'd miss you too much. What an expression you caught, on that little sweet!! Keep clicking Kim, we love them all, even fuzzy ones!!


Have fun with your new camera.

Karla Nathan

How exciting to get a new camera! We can't wait to see what beauty you capture!

Cindy S

Ahhh, poor Maggie, but how nice for you to have a new camera. I know you will use it aplenty! I have enjoyed your blog sooo much this past year, thank you for all of the encouraging things that you say and show. You are a wonderful bloggy friend! Love and hugs, Cindy S.


I totally understand! I just hate it when they get the cameras out and chase you down...what a drag. We have things to do and naps to take ~ do they not understand that?

Good luck to you! Stay hidden, ok?

Wish I had one under my tree!! You deserve it-you always take fantastic photos. I love to take pictures, too. Tell Maggie, hello from Spooky, my siamese manx, and Molly, my calico. They love dogs!!

Peg Gilham

Poor Maggie! You will be okay my little one. You will probably be featured on the front of several magazines because you are
so cute!!! If you need a vacation,Tuffy and Smokey would probably be glad to have
someone new to play ball with - their mom throws like a girl!

Miss Jean

Maggie: Come on over to our house and hide. Our Maggie would love to have a house guest!

Betty Jo

How cute!! Congrats on your new camera Kim. What kind did you get? ♥

Kathleen Grace

Cool! I know it will be put to good use:>) What kind?

Teresa...Blooming on Bainbridge

Oh Miss Maggie!
I wonder how it makes you feel to know that you just made me SMILE so big my Doogan asked me what was up?
He too gets utterly abused with his mamas picture taking!
Pop over and take a peek at his handsome self in his new red coat from Santa! You might have a crush on him when you catch a glimpse!
Don't say I didn't warn you Maggie!
Love, Teresa and Doogan of Bainbridge!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Maggie, when you come out tell your mom I said congrats on the new camera.


Ok your killing us, what kind did you get??? I just got a Nikon D90 for my b-day and I'm learning and LOVING it! Congrats!!! :)

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
