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

Kim, your amazing photography captured the spirit of both the Vintage Soul shop and Laura's creations. I'm glad we Daisy Cottage fans got to enjoy more photos than the magazine was able to display.

Don't you just love cheery little forget-me-nots like the ones on your Italian tray. Those little blue flowers seem to have crept onto my new little cottage sign too!

What a sweet giveaway--lots of treasures and a chance for some lucky soul to revel in a spending spree.


Wow - how exciting! I can't wait to see this issue! Please enter me in your giveaway; all the treasures look so great!

How exciting, Kim! I'm so thrilled for you! I received my issue in the mail yesterday! I cannot put it down! I had to leave a comment at Fifi's blog to let her know how much I was enjoying (and drooling over) ever page, and that this was the best issues ever!

Ruth Ann Adler

Warmest wishes! I certainly enjoy your blog and this entry is no exception. What wonderful news. You are certainly an inspiration to all of us:)


I have oohed and aaahed over your photos for ages now, and this post was chock full of the most gorgeous pics. You really have an amazing talent.I would love love love to hold a copy of the magazine in my hands and read your articles.


When I visited Daisy Cottage this morning my heart was filled with happiness!
I love these shops and places you visited and most of all I love the pictures of Vintage Soul. Soooo(!) romantic. They remind me of my youth when I visited my grandparents.
I also like to visit our local flee markets and thrift shops.When I find a new treasure I give it a new home (mine) and a new life by painting it in a new,fresh colour.
So I do what you do and what all your friends do and it's fun!
When I saw your giveaway, I thought: I would be delighted to find such a serving tray with the little forget-me-nots bouquet! Because it would be perfect for my kitchen-table.
Just the right colours!
And I love the egg because its message warms my heart!
Do you know the music of Josh Groban? He sings a song that's called: You Are Loved(Don't Give Up). It's a song of hope for those who feel lonely and think no one cares.
Kim, you gave us a wonderfull story today and I just needed your most important message: that we never ever give up on our own dreams! So I'm going to make serious plans to start selling my handmade creations! THANK YOU and LOVE,Nina.


Kim, your photography is beautiful..and your subject matter superb! A real visual treat! Please include me in your giveaway!


Oh Kim! I am so happy and thrilled and proud of you! You are so deserving. I see a lot more of this stuff in your future. Congrats!!!! And big hugs!

Those photos lifted my mood. I've been blue and gloomy here. We've had snow and rain. I can't wait for the sunshine. I want to sit on my front porch, but it's just too cold.

Looking through your post my thought was I am making sure I pick this magazine up as soon as I see it, so, of course, I'd love a chance to win it! Your additional treasures are beautiful and the thrift store shopping for me would be for a headboard for our bed.


You have been a busy bee! Congratulations! I want to gas up the jet and come to Florida with my piggy bank under my arm and visit those darling shops!


Your blog is soooooooooo beautiful today Kim. You are such a talented and gifted photographer and writer and obviously these wonderful magazines think so too!

Thank you for all the wonderful pictures, I am going to hunt down the magazine tomorrow when I go to the city. I can't wait.
I have to say I think you are a natural and have found your calling. Congratulations, great job!


Such a wonderful giveaway. I am so inspired with every visit I make to your blog. Your photographs are stunning.

Niesz Vintage Home

Wow! Such gorgeous, gorgeous photos!
The store in Florida is a "Must See" on my next visit to the area.
And congrats on having such a large contributing part in one of my favorite magazines. :-)
Great job! And thanks for the eye candy post!



I am thrilled for you Kim. You are one talented lady! Of course I'd love to win!


What an awesome job you have. And how sweet of you to have so many treasures in a giveaway. Please add me to the list, and thank you very much for your generosity.


Congrats Kim! you give so much joy,I am glad it is your turn! Gee I would love to enjoy the magazine,but I am thinking a name change...Romantic Country by Kim,or Kim's Romantic Views of Florida,or Kim writes about the best of Florida,or Visit Florida now,or Dreams Come True by Kim..I could go on........

I will be on my way to St Cloud.......


Wow, you have been busy!!! What a great story and and an honor that you were able to do that piece for the magazine. I love your blog, and wish I could just move into your home, it looks so inviting and comfortable.
Your give a way is very generous. I am redoing my guest room, and your blog has given me ideas to do it in the vintage style. It's been a lot of fun going to "treasure" stores and finding that perfect piece. I needed a small dresser with legs, and trying to find things on Craig's list, and just when I was going to give up for this next company's visit, I found the perfect one in a little second hand shop. My only problem now it's made of oak, in sorta good shape, it would look good painted white, but it's made of oak, and I think it would break my heart to paint oak, it's such a good wood. I have gone out and bought drawer pulls three times now trying to pull in colors. Well, I guess the hunt is the adventure!!!!

Stephenie M

You have been busy! Please do add me to the drawing..

chris mohnasky

What a generous giveaway! The mag looks delightful-can't wait to see it. If I don't win it I'll definitely have to pick one up. You're so sweet.

Kim Nichols

Kim, how wonderful that you were able to have your work published in that magazine. I will have to go and get a copy of that. I don't think I can wait for the drawing. If I have two I will share one with my sister. She would love it, too. I hope someday I can go to that shop. It has some of the prettiest things. Thanks for sharing!


How lucky you are to be doing something that you so obviously love....the photos are beautiful. I'm going out to get the magazine today for sure. I'm hoping to be a lucky winner of one of your great give-aways!! Now I'm going back to look at the photos again :-)

Janet (Shabbyfufu)

All good things to you sweet Kim! I could literally move into that store in St. Cloud, but then again my family may wonder where I am:-). Continued best of luck in all of your projects....xoxo, Janet
(p.s. I never win anything, but on the off may pass it forward to someone else. Just wanted to pop over & say HEY!)

Laura @ Sahm I Am

Wow, Kim! That is a lovely and very genrous giveaway! Win or not, Thanks.

Thanks for your sweetness. Thanks for the inspiration you provide. I read lots and lots of cottage-y blogs, and most of them like lots of beige and white and not much color. I love that look and admire their stuff very much, but I need COLOR! You are one of the few that just dives right in and paints red, yellow, aqua...not just heirloom white. Thanks so much.

Marty Whitney

What an inspiration to visit all the places you've been. I love when you visit old souls...they are beautiful and so creative. I'm on my way to buy "Romantic Country" right now. Can't wait to see the photos. Especially love "Old Florida" - treasures waiting in just about every town.


I am addicted!!! Thanks for your inspiration! I have been to MY local thrift shops and antique stores recently!!! You are wonderful and inspirational!

Cindy H

I can't wait to win so I am running to the nearest store to buy a copy so I can curl up in a chair with a cup of tes and read about my favorite writer, photographer, stylist and most talented friend. Oh Kim , I am so very proud of you and your acccomplishments. Thank you for such wonderful moments. You are the BEST.
Cindy H @ Happinest

Your photography and writing (both blog and magazine) are beautiful. Such an inspiration!


Loved the pictures and congratulations on being published! You live in a wonderful area that must have the best yard sales. Cold weather makes our shopping strictly a summertime event. We used to have several great flea markets but the economy has closed nearly all of them. It makes me sad to see this happen. I would love to be entered in the giveaway and I already know dishes or silver would be on my to buy list!

I'm going shopping later this morning and hope to find the magazine with your always-wonderful articles -- thanks so much for sharing such beautiful places.

I'm moving soon to a small house -- we're senior citizens and are down-sizing -- I get so many lovely ideas from you, the places you visit -- my style is a little more minimal than you but I do love the warmth and charm of all that you do.

Thanks for being you --



Wow, I love the perfume bottle!! So adorable!! I'm a new reader and look forward to your posts now every morning! Thank you so much for what you do!

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!
