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

Happy Valentines Day to you too, Kim. So glad you haven't frozen to death this winter. Have to keep looking at my address in the phone book to see where I live - sunny Florida??? Hugs, Marcy

Happy Valentine's Day! Beautiful home and blog.

Kim your blog I believe has offered so many of us more than just another decorating blog, but it has given all of us a glimpse into how beautiful life can be when the simple things are appreciated and loved, everything from colors to a favorite coffee cup to the vintage table and the red purse, you made thrifting chic and turned it into a treasure hunt, I know now when I pick something up a thrift store it causes me to think more about the person that had that before myself, how did they feel about it, was this the original color, I just want to say thank you for the loveliness you have put into daisy cottage.

I would love to win the blue pedestal cake plate--what a find that is.

Thank you for a lovely and fun blog.


My chances are slim to win, but I've got to try. The bracelet is gorgeous, the trims to die for, journal and cake plate sre so pretty and would really love to have a copy of that magazine. How lucky are you to be featured inside!

Goodness! What a wonderful giveaway! I found your blog through Dale's Dreams and am so happy I did. Country Sampler is my favorite magazine and I am trying to make mini furniture and accessories like those they showcase!

I found an Artful Blogging Magazine @ a garage sale for a quarter,(spring 2008) I was so drawn to your pics and what you had to share!!! Could not wait to get home to get on the computer to see more...please include me!!! Thankyou for for sharing yourself. Patty Decker


You have a lovely place that cottage look, always have, but didn't have a name to go with it. Looking ever so much forward to the magazine coming out, I think it is going to be a BIG HIT...Your Maggie, she is so cute, and like my dog Spanky just as I click the shutter on the camera he turns his head, and I get the back of his head too.. Have a lovely Valentines day. My blog friend Beansie told me about your place...I am glad that she did..:)

I stumbled upon your blog not long ago and felt like I was at home! I adore this style. How honored I would be to win this fabulous giveaway!

Maggie Green

Happy Valentine's Day, Kim -

I had to slip out of my "lurking" mode to comment on how lovely I think the give-away items are and how much I enjoy your blog. I often leave it up just to listen to the music as I move through my morning kitchen routine! My Gibby is the short-haired version of your Maggie, but when I show him her photos, he just doesn't seem to connect...something lacks in electronic translation, I guess.

- Maggie


Wow...what a wonderful giveaway...hope you're having a wonderful Valentine's Day :}


Congrats to you and yes..oh please I like to enter your giveaways! Happy Valentines to you and yours


Wow. Just browsed through "Blogging for Bliss" and decided to check yours out. Yes, what a great way to generate comments. I shall be back. Do you really live in that lovely yellow cottage?

Marfa (crafting marfa)

Oh MY GOD there are 454 comments already. I feel like an ant in a huge field. The odds are against me, but what the heck! I'll give it a shot. Won't lose anything by trying. I love all the stuff you're giving away so I'll just finish my comment and cross my fingers.


This looks like a piece of Daisy Cottage and how I would love to be the name you pick!

Fay Marie Torzsok

It was nice to hear from you Jack on this Valentine's Day. Hope you had a peaceful day just knowing that your angel is watching over you with love.

Kim, Hope you had a good Valentine's day.

Fay Marie

Please enter me in your awesome contest. Thank you for the contest and for all of your inspiration.

Sandy Hartley, owner of Best Dressed Windows

I had only seen your sight a few months ago. I am snowed in here in the Washington, D.C. area and rose up to surround myself with some inspiration, comfort, class, mood altering, and lavish ideas. Of course, I thought of your Daisy Cottage blog. The music is so soothing; it brings back memories. I am writing my 80 old mother to read your blog so she can enjoy the fabulous ideas and music as well!

Summer Place is playing, oh how much I need to hear that tune, after 25" of snow... I now have not a care in the world. Thanks, Sandy

p.s. Moon river just played as I end this comment, my Mom and Dad's favorite song! How did you know?!


Blessings my sweet Kim. Just wanted to share I have you on You Tube! Well actually I am sharing a Chore Journal that I made and a few of the pictures I had clipped out and glued to the journal are from Daisy Cottage!

Take care....and thank you SO much for bringing so much joy in our lives and inspiring us!

Kim you are always so generous ~ I've missed visiting your's going on my "to do" list every week!

Today I will catch up.

Ciao bella,

Congrats on the magazine. I'll go out and get a copy!


A friend just turned me on to your website, and I adore it. The music and all the exciting pictures remind me of a friend, Carmela-she has great taste, and talent, too. Your home is beautiful, and I love your picture-ever so shy and innocent. Sweet. Reading your blog- reminds me of going home. Thanks for all your hard work. You are greatly appreciated here in OH.

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
