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

Such lovely, lovely items. How exciting to have your blog featured in such an amazing magazine! With the cover that gorgeous, I have a feeling it is one of those issues you never want to put down! Congrats! Happy Valentines Day!!

Hugs from Phoenix!


Lady Dorothy

What a lovely group of things. I would love to win them! I also have to go looking for that magazine!


Congrats on being featured! Can't wait to check that magazine out!


You do have a lovely blog and lovely items. Want that magazine too! Thanks for the Happy Valentine's Day. My husband and I will be married for 5 years so we are celebrating big time. Your items are wonderful and would love to be entered into the contest. Thanks! Stephanie


Such a wonderful giveaway-- I would love to see what's inside that magazine!

Janette Ingram

OH, my goodness, can not begin to tell you how excited I would be to get these lovely gifts!! It would be like one of those scratch off lottery tickets you purchase with your last dollar and "YOU'RE A WINNER"!!! Love this Daisy home away from house. Warm, friendly, cozy and I know I am always welcomed.
God Bless


Hi! I live in Turkiye. Do I have a chance? If I have, I will be happy to win these lovely things and the magazine effects me so much.
Happy Valentine's Day!


Kim why oh why can we not get magazines like that here in Canada. I have tried to find them to no avail. You can be sure that when I get to Fla. I'll be scouting out your Barnes and Nobles for all my favourites that I come across in everyone's blogs. One I'm itching to look through is that Mary Jane one. Her books also look amazing.
No need to put my name in, even though I would love to win something precious from you. That's ok, hopefully we will get to meet when I'm with Mrs. Magpie in Lakeland.
Love you
Love Claudie


I enjoy reading your blog and getting ideas for my own home. I would love to be included in your giveaway.


Oh, how nice that you got featured! I haven't noticed that magazine in our area. I think I would love it!

Robyn...... of  'Robyn's Nest '

KIM A FRIEND TOLD ME ABOUT YOUR BLOG PAGE RECENTLY........SOMETIMES THE INTERNET IS NOT FAIR AS THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT THINGS ARE IN THE US ....... don't get me wrong we have many many great things here in Australia. You have no idea how much I'd love to go shopping in 'the states' even your magazines are lovely. You'd think with the GFC your mags would be cheaper over here but....... they're not. And Valentines Day too is sooooo much bigger in the US (perhaps I've been born in the wrong country lol)


Wow, what a wonderful gift. The cake plate is gorgeous.


How fun! I hope your Valentine's Day is filled with much love and laughter.


Hi Kim, I would love to get my hands on that fabulous magazine - I haven't seen it in Australia yet.


I love it! I want it all! I don't know what I like the best. Pick me, please. Mona

Kathryn McGarry

I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now...I'm an early bird (4am) and this is my time before the household is awake and ready for the day. I have enjoyed reading about you and Maggie and seeing your gorgeous home. I've been thrifting for years, and didn't know it was "in". I always thought my style was just "Early Salvation Army". :)
The magazine looks great - I hope it makes it to Canada. In the mean time I will keep visiting with you each morning, and dream of Spring so I can start searching the yard sales again.

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
