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

So glad you're up and at 'em! Go slow!



I am so glad that you are feeling better and are ready to get up and go. Just take it easy, relax and enjoy the day. Soup sounds good. We are having a snow storm here and actually I took a snow day!!!!!!!
Have a good day and enjoy


Hey Kim, Glad you are better. Thanks for the tips! Have a great weekend. Lisa


So glad to see that you are up and about. Enjoy your weekend and hope you soak up alot of sunshine!


Well you must be feeling better, I am so glad:) It is cold and snowing here in Ohio AGAIN! Stop by and see my new vintage treasures I picked up while on my TN/KY road trip. Have a wonderful weekend, hopefully you can soak up some sunshine.

Dear Kim - It seems you are feeling well again. So glad to hear it! I'm at home making soup today too. Mine will be beef and barley. I'd be making chicken too except I still don't feel well enough to get out to the store. So I will be home reading your blog and others until I'm "up and at em" too. Hugs for you and Miss Maggie.

Hi Kim,

I am so glad you are feeling better. And as always, your photos brighten my day! Go and enjoy the warm Florida sunshine and I hope you are feeling up to going to a few yard sales tomorrow!

:) Kerri


Hey Chick!! Glad you feel better and I gotta tell nailed the shot of your books and pitcher! Very nice. Looks like you've got your new camera settings down pat!! Was that SOC.straight out of camera? Or did you use a filter on it?
Love It!!!

Brenda Kula

When you feel ready to make your bed, you're ready to get out of it. But don't rush things now. Chicken soup will right most things of course. Now Kim, we've got to start thinking of planting season. I take it upon myself to worry about lots of gardens. And I don't want you to think you're not a gardener. There's probably a gardener in you; just maybe hasn't surfaced yet. Anyone with your flair for color and design has a gardener in there just waiting to sprout.

Sooo glad you are feeling better. Yesterday's post was so much fun, your blog is always the BEST! I have looked over your Home Tours again and again. My old house is still trying to tell me how to decorate it and I am finally hearing it, I think. We'll see.
Keep on getting better, my friend.
Hugs, Cindy


As you know, we all love seeing your photos of your home!
I love the color of the you remember the name of the color? I have a green desk but it is not as bright as your color. Mine reminds me of that Hoosier green from so many years ago, very vintage, but I need a new look for my desk! I was about to paint it "Cottage white" from Behr/Home Depot.
Remember you'll feel the best after you rest. I guess you have rested enough!
Have a great weekend!


Welcome back to the world Kim. I hope you're feeling energized and in love with the world. Taking care of yourself when you're sick really matters. Diane


It's great you're back! No fun being sick.
Ruth ;)

I am so glad that you are feeling better, and you were able to get out today. Your chicken soup looks good. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


Angela C

Delightful blog! Makes me smile and the photography is crisp and artful. My nana used to drop 1 beaten egg into her chicken soup along with some parm cheese towards the end. Yum!

Kate Reddan

I am so glad you have recovered from that nasty dose. You managed to bring smiles to so many people even though you were down. I had to laugh at the pic of the flower you took when you were suposed to be in bed. That is so like me. Why do I always have something that just can't wait when I am sick. I look forward to your blog everyday. You always make me smile.
Thanks for being you!!!!!


It sounds like you are on the mend!

Would you mind sharing the name of the yellow paint in your bedroom? I get so overwhelmed at the paint store.

Daisy Cottage

Hi Kellie!

The yellow is Laura Ashley's Cowslip #3 and you can find it at Lowe's. It is a wonderful rich yellow. The exterior of Daisy Cottage is a different yellow.

Hope this helps!



I so enjoy your delight you share-- Please consider joining us on Friday~~Finding Beauty.

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
