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

Renee Lange

I am new to your blog and just love it! Beautiful photos, makes me want to have coffee with you! Merry Christmas!


Yes! I had a most wonderful Christmas and have rested this entire day! Many of my bloggity friends are using that word today in their posts!!

Betty Jo

We had a wonderful Christmas, and yes I'm tired. I had the flu up 'til Christmas Eve and was finally able to get out and do a little shopping. I saw on Twitter that you were spoiled. If anyone deserves to be spoiled, it is you Dear Kim!! ♥


One of the best Christmas' ever!! And it is such s good feeling to have a clean kitchen again!!


Daisy Cottage

oh.... I'm sooooooooooooo glad you all had a wonderful Christmas!!!



I just woke up from a four hour nap. So yes R is for rest and I did. Wonderful Christmas made for a very tired me. Best, Terri


I actually got some rest Christmas evening and it felt good. We had a very quiet Christmas with just our son and two kitties,
so no worry to get dressed up or stay in the kitchen for hours. While I miss my extended family, I really loved just being with my son and husband.
Hope you get some rest.


Oh yes, I have had my feet up more than I have been on them ever since the kids left yesturday.
Loved the picture of sweet Daisy in her Santa hat yesturday!

Kathleen Grace

Yes I did! I hope you did too:>) And yes, I am pretty tired, but happy:>) Hope your weekend is wonderful Kim!


We had a fun and happy Christmas day and hope you did too. Getting rested up here too. Your blog is lovely. I always make sure I have the sound on when I visit here. The music is soooo lovely and relaxing.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality

Hey, sweet Kim, we have gotten some rest & it's been great. Lots of food, family & relaxation too. And I see you have a cup all set out for me, so I wish I could just stop on by for a cup of coffee and dessert. :)

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality

And by the way, I think of you every time I drink out of my R cup too! Love you!

Daisy Cottage

ahhhh thank you Rhodie! You don't know HOW many times I think of you sweet girl! Maybe in 2010 we can visit again!!!

Brenda Kula

I rested the whole day. Oh, and had the hot glue gun going!


Hi Kim; Yes we had a lovely Christmas,, we were unable to make a trip back home this year, so it was just my DH and our fur baby,,, it was a cozy time..... and coffee does sound nice... have a restful weekend.


Kimberli (The Unorganized Mom)

We were snowed in so it was a very strange and quiet Christmas. Finally got to leave the house today and spend time with family! Enjoy your rest and your coffee. =)


YES! White, too! Living in Oklahoma, we got slammed--5-7 inches here, with drifts 18inches or so deep. The children loved it, watching the snow come down all afternoon Christmas Eve.

I keep our things up until at least January 6 (the Feast of the Epiphany), so we'll be enjoying them for a while longer, and then I'll be switching them out for our winter things.

However, I'm already on the lookout for things to decorate with next year! So, got any great ideas forthcoming? Got to have my list ready for when I hit the thrift stores...

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and have a happy and healthy New Year!

Melissa Miller

Everything was quiet and beautiful!
I feel blessed today. :)

Nancy Hutson Maisenbach

Yes Kim I think I will sit down and have that cup of Joe. Celebrating Christmas was oh so joyful. I am grateful that all were healthy although our oldest is sick today :( Peace, Joy and Love were there in abundance because He first loved us. "R" is a good letter for today; rest and reflect.
Thanks Kim.


sounds good, kim. i'll bring the cookies!

happiest holiday season to you ~



Christmas was sweet, merry, and relaxing (though don't ask me how we pulled that last one off!). Happy New Year!

The Garden Bell - Kate

Isn't it such a great feeling when all is said and done and you can enjoy a nice cup. Beautiful posting this holiday season.


Christmas was amazing. The girls were sufficiently spoiled, we had fun with the grandbaby and the food was wonderful. I napped and napped today but am up with yarn in hand for a little creative crochet. ~Kelly

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Were we supposed to rest today?! I spent the day painting my daughter's living room and kitchen. You would absolutely love the colors. It was lots of fun though, so I'll rest tomorrow!

Cathy G

Not a bad Christmas, but wish we could have been across the country to see my grandson's first Xmas with him. maybe next year in South Carolina!
Love your site, so inspiring!!


Still waiting for that "R" word time!!

I got a cup just like the one above for Christmas, only with a J on it!

Love the hoopla but oh, so ready for some quiet time again soon...

Patty Boyd

Yes Kim, I am tired too. Lots of hours in the kitchen and tidying up. But it was worth every minute of it.
Blessings dear friend,


I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

My last 5 days have been R&R, since having surgery last week, but our Christmas was good. Even though it doesn't snow in Florida! LOL



Sure did- and a happoy rest for you, too, Kim! Happy New Year, too!


We did have a blessed Christmas and yes, I am tired. But now to move on to the NEW YEAR!!
I'm excited to see what the Lord shall do.
Hope you have a fabulous year Kim!

Debbie from Texas

Don't drink coffee but I will have some tea! We had our family Christmas today so it has been a long Christmas this year. Looking forward to some rest this week! Happy New Year to you and your family!
Debbie from Texas

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
