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

Oh precious Maggie. I know she missed you! Speaking of a dog missing a human, I saw the best movie last night. It's called Hachiko If you ever get a chance to see it, please do! Glad you had a good time though. It's great just to get away sometimes.


OH, Happy birthday Maggie.

Cindy S

Congratulations to Sue in Iowa, I am terribly jealous of her right now. I guess I will get over it. It will take time, though;)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sweet little MAGGIE!!!
Hugs, Cindy S.

Susan Freeman

I'm sure that you had a wonderful time in Savannah, it's such a pretty city. Sweet Miss Maggie will soon forgive you! Give her a big belated birthday hug from me and Bentley.

Hi Kim

Glad you had a good time in Savannah. Happy Birthday Maggie. Should we tell Mommy that you told me she is forgiven?. Congratulations Sue on your priceless win. Enjoy for years to come.

Love your post about Maggie. My daughter Olivia and I wait everyday to see if there is a post about her. My daughter is a dog lover and espically loves dachshunds. She calls them pickles or homers. I am allergic to all dogs... so no dogs here. Only sweet dreams of dachshunds here. Thanks for sharing her with us!

Nancy Omachi

Missed you Kim! I have never been to Savannah, it's a long way from California! Happy Birthday Maggie!

Bella StyleBook

Ouch, what a sad puppy. Bet if you give her a treat she'd forget you missed her birthday. Dogs are so forgiving. That's one of their sweet qualities.

Betty Jo

Welcome back Kim. Congrats to Sue!! ♥

Nancy Reffle

Hi Kim,
Welcome Back! I am so glad you had a great week~end away. Oh Maggie dear, my little Chloe can relate. You are not alone, but I am sure Mommy missed you too.
Huggs, Nancy

Congrats Sue!
Doxies are such pouters.
Ours was named Doogie Bowser MD after Doogie Houser MD which was a new TV show at the time we brought wee Doogie home. Our Doogies MD for for Miniature Dashhound. Doogie is now in dog heaven and we miss him. Last night we watched home movies with our family and Doogie was a star.

What a sweet blog.

Just hopped over from another blog to say "hi."

Love the yellow house all sunny and bright!!!


Happy Birthday Maggie! I know Mommy didn't really forget...
she was just saving all of your gifts for today instead! Just give her one of your darling little tail wags and everything will be just fine.


Welcome back Kim. I left you an award on my blog. Please don't feel pressured to pass it on but I thought that you really deserved this award.

sweet cottage dreams

Oh, poor little Maggie.....Happy Birthday sweet one! I am sure your mean dog mommy is going to make it up to you. Just know that we love you - and so does your momma! Tell your mom that we are hoping for some photos of her trip.

love you, Maggie...

love you, Kim....

PS: Congrats to SUE! How wonderful that she won.



Our furry friends have also perfected the "abandoned, unloved-look." Heart-melting! I hope you had a wonderful time in Savannah...I've always wanted to visit that lovely city. Happy for you that you got a little break.

Julie Harward

Well, I glad you are back even if you are a mean doggie mama! LOL I really look forward to getting to know you, come say hi any time :D


I came across your blog for the first time today...from the moment I landed on your home page and the music started..I immediately felt so relaxed....

Love your blog and will be back often! What a sweet pooch!


a belated happy birthday to miss maggie!
congrats sue on the win..


Welcome home Kim. Miss Maggie, you get extra special treats for being good while mommy was out playing. Mom's need to get away not only from their kids at times, but from their fur babies too...I know I'll be leaving all my 7 fur babies when I come to Florida. I might get to meet you Miss Maggie and your pretty mama. I'm counting down the sleeps.
Please warm Fla. up for Julie and I. I'm tired of it being cold here in Canada. Tell your mom we were going to Savannah because of all the pretty pictures she posted a while back, but unfortunately it will be St. Patrick's Day... and you know what kind of partying goes on then don't you?? Crazy people drinking green beer. I also hear they turn the river green!! Can you imagine? Well needless to say we will be stopping in Atlanta, Ga. and visiting some very special blogging friends instead.
Have a great week precious Maggie.
Love Claudie


Not to worry, a birthday can still be celebrated and Maggie will be her happy self again!


You mean another yr has gone by since Maggies last BD already??? I remember last yr you had piano music playing Happy Birthday to you on your blog for Maggie! So I've been visiting over a yr now, and I guess I always will,because I love it here! Glad you had a great trip and are back home safe and sound! Leah

Belated Happy Valentines Day Kim


I love your blog and especially seeing pictures of Maggie. I posted some pictures of our Long-Haired Dachshund puppy (6 months old) in my last few "living room" posts. She was my model for my couch. :) We love our Millie SO MUCH. I will never get another breed of dog again. She's perfect. I'm going to post some close-up pictures of her later today and link up to your blog, since we share similar dogs (and design love).

Ashley Schott

Happy Birthday Maggie:) She's so sweet! Where oh where did you get that lampshade?? I have to have one!!!

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
