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

May you get back 10 fold the joy that you send out!


Hi, Kim, Beautiful strawberries, they look like hearts, don't they. I wanted to sign up for a heart but my computer is having some difficulties with some email addresses. Could you let me know your address and I'd love to make one. Have a beautiful day. Blessings, Diane

And thank you for the beautiful strawberries. Thank you also Kim for following me on Twitter. I have not tweeted yet, but will soon. Some days are just so busy. I'm sure you know exactly what I mean. Have the happiest Monday!

Thank you so much Kim, for everything.
My little heart is done, filled with lavender and ready to be sent to you in the morning.
It was a blessing making it, and I had some really heartfelt sharing with my husband.

Oh, Kim! That picture of the strawberries reminded me it's strawberry time in Florida! A few years ago, right at this time of year, my hubby had a 2 week training class in Plant City - the strawberry capital, of course! His last stop before he headed home at the end of the training was at a strawberry farm where he bought two flats for me/us. Oh JOY!!! Plant City and surrounding areas grow the best strawberries ever! He said the 10 hour drive was terrible, because the smell in the truck was soooo sweet!

Wish I could run down and pick up a couple of flats now!

Blessings, Becky

Hi Kim, my days begins with a visit to your site. I sit here with a cup of coffee in the early morning and I like you find beauty in the simplest things. Thank you for taking the time to brighten not only my day, but others as well!



Right back at you Kim

You're the best,
Kathy :)


Hi Kim, I recently retired, and my sister told me about your site, "oh you just have to go to it, you will love it!". So I visited, and visited and visited, and now every morning, with anticipation, I open my email to find my email from Dear Daisy Cottage. The music, is so heart warming, it totally sets the mood for my day. My big sister, she was so right, but, so I hear, they usually are. Everyone's stories, their lives happy and sad, I feel privileged they share. I miss the camaraderie I had working, but I am happy with my new family. All the visitors to the cottage. Thank you Kim for being there, and bringing us all together. Love Maxine


Beautiful strawberries. Looking forward to lots of them this spring. Have a beautiful day in the land of warmth. We're currently in a snow globe with powdered sugar frosted trees all around!

Brenda Kula

You have a great day, Kim. It's raining outside, so I'm busy "tweaking" things in the house. What is it you call it? Isn't it putzing? Correct me if I'm wrong. It's been awhile since that particular post!

Cheryl Fields

Good morning Kim! Strawberries were $6.59 a pkg Saturday at the grocery store here in New Mexico! I am going to dip them in chocolate to give to my sweetheart on Valentine's Day. (he is worth it!) Hope you have a " BERRY" nice day!
Love ya!

*last week I emailed you about the black sign in bathroom wondering what it says....

Love the strawberries Kim, You have a way of putting a smile on my face everytime I visit Daisy Cottage. I hope you got my email, I want your address so I can send you my two hearts. One for Jack and one for you. ('s so great to share the love!!!! Thanks for the invitation to lift Jacks spirits. I'm sure Tabatha is smiling down on all of us for giving our hearts to her dear sweetheart Jack.
Kate Reddan

You are truly a very special person!


Hi Kim,

YOU are the sweetest and brightest part of my day today.



Hi, Kim,
I don't sew, so I can't make a heart :(
I stayed up late last night looking at all your flickr pictures. They are all amazing. Can you tell me the color "red" and namebrand of paint you use on your painted pieces?

Daisy Cottage

Thank you everyone!

(((Maxine))) I am SO glad you are here! Welcome!

Donna, I don't sew either. I'm going to be hot-gluing mine! ;-) I've used Apple Orchard by Rustoleum - at Lowe's - for many of my painted pieces. On the Q&A page I've shared other paint choices too. I hope this helps!



I so much enjoy your blog. You are sweet and loving lady.
That Maggie of yours is so adorable. I love seeing pics of her.

I wasnt able to make a heart but my thoughts are with Jack during this time of sorrow. My sister recently lost her husband to cancer.

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
