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

Yes, that is a shame. Send her over to my house. We'll love her for you! Mimi


Absolutely it's a shame, Kim! I've never seen such an unloved little pooch. Pity that poor little doggie! ;-)


Sheila :-)


Poor little girl ~ she looks unloved.....NOT!!

PS ~ she sure is cute!


way too cute! Love your style and your blog! Happy Friday! XOXO


We will never believe that Kim :)


Please please do tell me Kim...what kind of new camera and lens did you get...I can really tell you are using it!
Just gorgeous!
I won't show Mr. Doogan this shot...he will have a never ending CRUSH on this sweet girl! She's a heart braker!


Ahh ... she is such a cutie! How can you not just love her? LOL.

marina mott

So so cute!!!! So lovely and adorable! I'm sure you can work on that (rsrsrs)!! Happy weekend for you too!xx


Yes please do overcome that harsh exterior and show that poor little lady just a little bit of love.... lol!! xx


Is it even possible to be that cute :) Have a nice weekend too :_


Some how the pot doesn't seem to have any real conviction in the statements.

Can't fool an old animal lover.
She is darling.


A Cupcake For Moose

Oh yes, poor Maggie! My Bonnie is equally deprived. :) Isn't it wonderful how a little pup can bring such joy to a family? Big pups, too, but mine is a wee one like Maggie. Have a wonderful weekend Kim! xoxo from Indiana!

Sue K.

It almost seems unreasonable sometimes, doesn't it? The way we feel about these creatures...


Such a shame!!


Becky G.

I know. I feel your pain. It's a shame I don't love my two little Doxie girls either!



I was wondering where Maggie was? I still think there should be a book deal in the works for Maggie and You, too!
Higs, JolieAnne


Maggie is just the dog I would love to have. We had a Schnauzer (Maggie) for 13 yrs and haven't been able to replace her since she died. Your little Maggie is just the perfect dog...please give her an extra love from me!


How pathetic! That poor li'l doggie and you, so hard-hearted and cold. A tragedy, really, that's what it is.

Ha Ha Kim! No one could ever believe such a thing is true! The picture itself just says "love, love, love".
You are really rockin' with that new camera!


She does look pitiful, my pug Lucky says send her to frigid, snowy southern Missouri and he will keep her warm!

Susan Freeman

Maggie can melt a heart with just one look! What a sweet, sweet face.
Susan and Bentley


Nothin like the love of a little wienie girl! Love, Robyn and Daisy Mae (my little wienie girl)


Yes, it's too sad that the child is treated so poorly by you-:) Beautiful shot of Maggie. My 7 year old son has fallen in love with her and asks to see your blog to see any new pics. of Maggie. So tonight I'll show him this one.

Kimberly Padilla

Oh, I bet she is not loved one bit. :) Such a cutie she is! I would give anything if my NYC landlord would allow dogs in his apartments. :(

Donna at Mourning Dove Cottage

Awwwwww, I know better.


Nancy Omachi

Love both of you!

Bella StyleBook

If only dogs could speak...what would yours be telling us about her life right now?

Have a great weekend back to ya!

sweet cottage dreams

She can come and play with Duhgall and Fiona!
They can play and we can shop!


Aprons Gone Wild

Poor, neglected dog!
Love your blog.


Hi Kim, I was just reading one of your older posts - Bringing Home The Blanket. Sigh! What a beautiful blanket and yes, I would be hoping the people you got that gorgeous blanket off are doing OK. The colours are stunning. Have a happy weekend - this blog is absolutely fab :-)


OK, that's it girlfriend, SHE's MINE :) Blessings, Janet

Lynda precious!


Yes, I'm glad to see you've come to grips with it. And stop beating her tooooooo :)
Sheesh she has you so around her adorable little paws:)

Debbie from Texas

It is a darn shame!!! She is so cute and you can send her to Texas today!I will love her!


Oh to be not loved...

Kim, you are too funny! Maggie is such a beautiful little dog! They are wonderful aren't they? Your blog is really one of my favorites to visit. I wish I had a sister like you!

Have a great weekend,



Happy weekend to you, as well! Maggie looks so soft and fuzzy : )


It is a shame :-) Send sweet Maggie my way ~ Ernie would love a little sister ♥
Happy Weekend to you both xo

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Yeah, pitiful. Just pitiful.


shhh- She might hear you! I know you love her!

Mary Lou

They say to know her is to love her. I don't know her and I love her too!!!

Karen W

Look at that face .... who couldn't love her??? =]


She looks about as "abused" as my princess kitty!

Kelee Katillac

Oliver says" Maggie I love you with all my heart!"

Kim, if you are around stop by today...we need you!

love, kelee


What a beautiful baby you have, she sure is truly loved. We lost our little one almost a year ago, I miss him each and every day. I know our Bear would have loved Maggie.
Give her a big hug from me....Cindy


Oh my goodness, that is one PRECIOUS furbaby. I just fell in love. She kind of reminds me of the doggie I had as a kid. Maggie is very beautiful and, obviously, very photogenic.



So pretty! I had a doodle or a doxipoo whatever you prefer to call him.. had to get rid of him when baby arrived. We gave him three weeks to settle down and not growl at him but he was having nothing to do with us having a baby around so we had to find him a home. :( I miss him.

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
