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

Beth Kreider

WELCOME BACK! I missed all the bright cheeriness of Daisy Cottage! A well-cared for home is a pure joy. . .bliss indeed! I've been enjoying caring for my home and adding more roosters to my kitchen! We had a glorious Easter with family. Bless you, Beth

Barbara Anne

I'm here! I've missed you, too, and am happy to see your new photos, the new-to-you tablecloth and wonderful red lamp, and your many happy flowers.

My mother said not to wish my life away, but I cannot wait to see the hearts that have arrived for Jack. Have you counted how many you received yet?

Welcome home!!

city farmer

oh yeah ... missed you like crazy

judy hale

So glad to have you back I was starting to have withdraws so I would stop by and visit the cottage every now and then.I have enjoyed your web site so much and all the homes you have shared that I have now decided to start redoing my home alittle at a time from primitive to cottage and you have inspired me sooo much. Thank you for all you do and sooo glad you are back!!!

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita

Missed you too! Glad to see you back!


Oh, Dear Heavens, Kim!!

Until I saw the camera lens and realized it was pressed to your eye, I saw the picture as totally different---it was of you facing away, to the right of the picture, with your hair flowing WAY down below your waist, and your satiny brocade dress cut down to THERE on the sides.

Oh, My!! What WAS I thinking? And now that I've seen it correctly, I can't go back and UNSEE the real picture---it's like one of those childhood "see the hidden pictures" outlines---once you've seen them, there's no going back.

I gotta get some REAL glasses!! Welcome back!!! I checked in every day to see if you were here, and I'm very glad you are.

(And my apologies for such a daring assumption).

Lordy Mercy---What MUST you think of me?


Debbie @ SweetDreamsandMemories

Yeah!!! Kim is back!!and Daisy Cottage too!.I missed your cheery pictures and posts very welcome back.
Hope your easter was fabulous!!
Debbie :) blog...In Nanas Kitchen@blogspot is now

Debbie Bell

Kim....Every day I would come to your site & close my eyes & say...shes back...shes back...I just know shes back!
And were! Very happy:)


I am THRILLED that you are back! Blogland was missing it's color while you were gone! I soooo love this post with all of your random pics. I will be returning to visit them again and again! You are such an inspiration!



Glad you had a wonderful time with MOPS, love the pics...missed you too!!!! ((((hugs))))


Oh, I am so glad that you are back! It seemed like forever! Love all the pics of your cottage. It is so pretty!

Thank you so much! I received the giveaway last week and am still drooling! I have a little project for the broach to highlight it. I have yet to go fleaing, but when I do, I will post about it. I just love everything. I guess that is what made it harder with you being gone. I see the items and would remember you and your kindness. And of course Miss Maggie! Thank you again!

Patty M

I'm glad you missed me...I missed you, too. Don't stay a way so long unless it's very, very necessary. There...I'm all better now!


How nice it was to see "you" in my Google Reader this evening. :)

Jo Anne

It's nice to feel your positive flow of energy and love again. It's nice to know you missed me too as I did you.

Jennifer S

Jennifer here... from MOPs...
A couple of us did go to a yard sale and a thrift store after we left your house. It was nice to not have to corral the little ones while we did it too!

Inspired by the letters on your wall, I went to Picasso's Cup and painted an S for our last name. But in my style. Can't wait to get it back, put it on my wall and take a picture!

Thanks for the inspiration and hospitality. My daughter really liked her daisy cookie!


I bought several of the bright colored ceramic pots like you have last year. I am planting in them this year and I love them! They make me so happy. I also remember you and your blog and come back to see you have another group of wonderful and cheerful pictures for us. Thank you so much!


I'm still here. I'm glad your still here!
Missed you.


Glad you are back. I missed your posts and cheery cottage. :)


I'm here too! Love the random pics.. Gosh! They did make my day! Have a wonderful week! Vanessa


It sounds like you had fun while you were "gone". I am on the road with my hubby, two kitties and my dog. On my way to the Oregon coast. Can't wait to get there!


Glad you're back - wonder how you grow hydrangea in Florida? I know you are North of me, I am in Miami but do you do anything special to get them to grow so pretty? Where'd you buy them, do you fertilize?


We did miss you. Yours is the first blog I go to each day and you were a away way too long it seems. I too like a squeeze of lime in my water. I buy the bottled lime or lemon (sorry not fresh but it keeps) and squeeze in my water glass so that I'll try to drink more water. Sort of like a limeade without the sugar. We have to trick ourselves..Kim

Debby Messner

Nice to see you back. Beautiful pictures. Wish we could have flowers like that right now. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Kim,
Sure did miss ya! Hope you had a nice time. Sure did have a beautiful Easter with our family over. Lots of good food and company just missed my late mom and dad and grandmother, and others (sorry could go on and on).. know I'll be with them again someday though.
I also love limes in my water.. very delicious but if not available lemons will do. I found a box of small packages of crystalized limes and lemons in grocery store some time back. All natural and very good in water. Come to think of it need to get more. Also good sprinkled on other food; yougart, etc.
Have a blessed week and beautiful photos above,
hugs, julie


SO glad you are back - and still here! Because your blog and your gorgeous photos are too beautiful for us to ever be without them!!

Debbie L.

KIM!!! There you are:) I was having Daisy Cottage withdrawals ha. I must confess I came here daily hoping that maybe you might have taken a little break and peeked in to say "Hi" :) I sure missed you and Miss Maggie.

Thanks for all the new pictures. Makes me smile to look at each one.

Debbie L.


Beautiful, beautiful photos! Love the sunny colors and all the delightful flowers! Welcome back.

sweet cottage dreams

Welcome back, beautiful friend! Your home is lovely as usual - and YAY for the flowers still looking all cute and perky!! So happy to know that your week was blissful. We all missed ya! How was your mother's birthday? I hope superbly magnificent! Hugs and kisses from California to Florida!


Valerie Kay

You were missed! Thank you for the beautiful blog! The music, the pictures, the great ideas all make me smile!

Joyce Ackley

So glad you're back with your uplifting posts and cheery pictures. I wondered where you were - I checked your blog every day to see if you were "home."


Am I still here? Always!!!!

Norma De Arrastia

I missed you so much, blessings from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, yes! someone loves you in Puerto Rico.


Julie Harward

Glad you are back...I have been here even through surgery and would love to have you come say hi sometime. I'm a very loyal friend and am there and can be counted on and I am so glad to have connected with you. Hope to be good friends...I missed your bright cheerfulness :D


Welcome back! You were most definitely missed. It sounds as if you have had a grand time. The photos of all the beauty in your you space just made me smile.

Oh, I love a twist of lime in my tea. It is the best!


I missed you. I'm new, and already love you dearly. I'm so grateful for your site...I need some cheer. My kids need me to have some cheer. You're just what the 'doctor' ordered.

Thank you for being such a precious you. :)

Sami Melton

Totally here... and totally missing you. Can't wait to see the beautiful hearts on Friday - till then, xoxo The Lady of the House

Cynthia K.

Hi there! I'm here - glad you're there again. Wow, what a lifter of the spirits that your pictures are - I could make a comment on every one of them but it's nearly midnight here and I need to go to bed. I'll just say: love the bananas picture, lemons in blue bowl, turquoise iron furniture on deck, big fat round porch pillars...Most important though, is that I truly hope you enjoyed every moment with your mother (mine went to heaven last year, so I know how each tiny second with your mother is a treasure). I'm sure being with you made her birthday extra happy.

Hope you had a blessed Resurrection Day on Sunday...

Cynthia K. (Beauty and Blessings)

Josephine Tale Pedder

Pleased you have returned, Kim. I was wondering where Daisy Cottage had got to. We had a very quiet, family Easter. Thanks for asking! xx


Kim, I am so glad your are back. I have missed you everyday-Sometimes I need to be reminded of all the beauty around me. Can't wait to have warm weather to plant flowers. We had snow in the rain the last few days!! Easter was wonderful- Hugs my precious friend-Marietta


Kim, So glad you are back. just wanting to know that every single time I view your blog I am filled with smiles and inspiration to get up, get out, and do more. In fact, I have just started blogging at Yep, all because of you. Have a great day!


I love the way you write and bring cheer to my life


Phew you're back. It was just not right without you to cheer my day. Will you share photos of the MOPS?? xx

Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, sooooo glad to see you back missed you heaps!! I'm glad that you had a good time while you were away. I had a womderful Easter lots and lots and lots of tiny little easter eggs yummy!! I have a basket full of tiny Cadbury easter eggs and I just keep eating them one after the other until I really make myself quite sick. Can't wait to see the hearts for Jack have a great day Trish xox ')



Abscence makes the heart grow fonder!

Kathleen Grace

I missed you too! I even stopped by one day to see if my feed just wasn't showing a post. I hope you had a wonderful Easter Kim. I'm so glad your'e back!


Yes Kim. We're still here and we sure missed you. Had a great Easter. The sun was shining, with a cool breeze - perfect.

Linda Evans

Sooooo glad you are back!!!!! I checked every day to see !!!! You know I am a country/primitive decorator, BUT your is my favorite blog/home....the colors are wonderful, your style is.....I don't have words....but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it......makes me want to get rid of everything and start all over. Which is possible, because you are thrifty, and you make it fun, happy, makes my heart sing.....oh my, daisy glad your back......smiles, Linda, a farmer's wife

Good to see you again! Hope Maggie is well too!!

A Cupcake For Moose

So good to hear from you! Lime water is quite tasty! Thanks for sharing Cindy's story. I will definitely be praying and visiting Colleen's blog.
xoxo, Rachel


I really missed Daisy Cottage! When my husband commented about my cranky mood, I told him, "Well maybe it's because I haven't been able to read Daisy Cottage for over a week!"
Thanks for such a peaceful serene place to go.

Kathi Layfield

I'm so glad you are back...I have missed your sweet comments and beautiful pictures and of course I've missed Maggie. Your blog is a ray of sunshine everyday.


Of course I'm still here! I missed you, too. It just wasn't the same without your beautiful pictures and music and sweet talk to make me smile. Glad you're back!

We've suddenly jumped into summer here in Houston. The azaleas have almost finished and the Louisiana iris and amaryllis are starting. I love this time of year!


Hi there! Good to have you back. I was just thinking as I scrolled down through your photos that a gal who knows her colors is a very smart one. Every one of them is fantastic! (I did follow your link to Cindy's. Thank you for posting it so that I could have the privilege of visiting her.)


AAHHHHHHHHHHHHH...... Your back! Missed you! Thanks for being you and giving me the "excuse" to be me!!


Glad you are all your flower photos...especially your yellow tulips. Judy



I am so glad you are back! It wasn't the same with you gone. It sounds like you had a nice time with the MOPS. I really enjoyed your pictures and I am praying for Cindy and her entire family!



Glad you are back. I missed you too!
Love the red pitcher with the cookbook & lemons...and the red lamp....and your flowers...and you of course!
Have a great day!

Kay in Kansas

Dear Kim,
I missed your blog so much. I checked every day even though I knew you would probably take the week off. As always, you take such beautiful pictures. I love the blue that I saw in the den. Would you mind sharing the color? Your home is such a happy and colorful place and it makes me smile.

I was able to take the drive around Morton Lake and the swans took my breath away. The trip was planned at the last minute, and I accidently left your phone number in my fifth wheel, so I couldn't call. I had DH driving up/down the streets trying to find Daisy Cottage - told him we couldn't miss it; it was the most beautiful house on the block. You live in such a unique and charming area - I can see why you love it.

Thanks for the post about Cindy - will leave a message and lift her/family in prayer. Life is so precious and in one second it can change.

Happy Belated Easter to you and your family.



Kimberly, Daisy Mae told me that she was getting ready to send out all of her hound friends to sniff you and Maggie out. I told her that she didn't have to do that now, because this morning Miss Kimberly blogged!! We both really missed you all...I too, cannot wait to see all the hearts for Jack! It will be interesting to see each style...I'm sure there are many...Also please keep the West Virginia coal miners and their families in your prayers...My hubby works for A.T. Massey and they're all really heart broken this morning...we live in KY but the coal mines that this happened at is about 40 min from here...thanks in advance...Love, Robyn and Daisy Mae

Elizabeth Marchus

Hi Kim,
So happy to read your post today. You have been very busy for sure.
I also love lime and buy some every week, I use lime on my salad for dressing, it saves all the calories from oil dressings. I will mix lime and lemon together it's really good!. I think I need to plant a lime tree since I use so much of it.
Have a wonderful day and big hugs for you,

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

You're back! I tend to go a little MIA when it starts to get warm out, and I get lost in the gardens! Love all of your pictures. They always brighten my day!

Sharon Carstens


I just love your blog. The colors in and around your home are beautiful. I am especially fond of red. Glad you are back and look forward to tuning in every day.

Kimberly Padilla

Hey Kim, So glad to see you back and you're beautiful pictures. My dad died last week, and so I was gone for a few days too. As a gift to my mother someone gave her some purple tulips too. They are beautiful, as are your yellow ones! I will sure pray for Cindy! Blessings on this beautiful day!


While you were gone I took the time to get my newly painted dining room up and running...sewed new curtains and played with my stuff to make it look fresh and new...and named it "Bistro du Soleil!! Check it out sometime, I am really pleased with the way it came out. Thanks for all your inspiration and encouragement.



Welcome home Kim ~ everything looks so lovely at Daisy Cottage ♥

Nancy Omachi

Are you kidding me???? Yeah I'm glad your back, (with a California slang)!! I was just thinking last night that I've missed your blog and wondering when you would be back!! Love your flowers and you!!!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality

Hi, sweet friend! Glad to have you back around with all these lovely, beautiful pics. xoxo

Lynn Paterson

Your flowers are looking good! Like the tub full of impatiens. Though, sure did miss my daily dose of inspiration....Hope you had a restful time off.


very baeutiful post!

Donna Rae Barrow

So glad you're back... especially since you've shared the idea of LIME in tea. I'm going to give that a try this very afternoon!

kim cleghorn

Hey Kim. I'm back too finally! Not painting but getting ready for puppies. My oldest son has been really ill but he is better. If you know anyone who wants a beautiful Golden Retriever send em over! I am soooo excited and I have missed you!

cottage feel - in california -


Glad you're back, Kim! Glad you've had good days. Enjoyed all your pictures, but I especially liked the yellow tulips and the Fiesta Ware. :) Will keep Cindy in mind, and hope she is better soon. I look forward to the "hearts" on Friday, and hope that will be a great blessing for Jack!

We had a really nice day on Sunday. It started out with a wonderful community service and breakfast, then church after that. Then, since we have no family around here, some others were having a family picnic and invited us along, and let me tell you, we were blessed richly! It was awesome. Faith, family, friends, food ..... all wonderful. :) Kim, I hope you have a GREAT week!

Dena Pickle

Oh I am sooo glad you are back! Everything looks just lovely, including the new lamp.

Kathy Charniak

I am so glad you are back, it felt like forever and a day. Your flowers are beautiful, thank you for sharing. Love from ILLinois - Kathy C


Great to hear from you again. I;ve been busy and away too. But your bright happy photos made me smile!


Yes, I'm here, and I'm glad you're here, too. You always brighten our days.

I am a lover to lime in my beverages, too. I love the taste and the smell.

Debbie from Texas

Oh, I am so excited!!! You are back!! I have missed you and life has not been the same without reading your blog everyday! I was afraid that you would fade into the sunset as alot of bloggers do when they become famous!
By the way, one of those hearts I sent is yours to keep - the one with the daisy on it!


WB, Kim!

Nope, life wasn't the same without you.............glad you are back. Glad your flowers survived that horrible cold FLA received back awhile.

So sorry about Cindy.

Lore D'Sa

Dear Kim,

So GLAD that your back! Yippee!!!! Am pleased to hear that you had a lovely time with "The MOPS". Your garden is looking mighty fine. I'm enjoying mine, though I wish it would warm-up a tad bit more here on the west coast of British Columbia. My tulips have budded and I can hardly wait for them to bloom. Had a wonderful Easter with the family. Hope yours was just as wonderful!! Love you and take good care of yourself!!

Your Friend,



Kim, missed you so much. I spent the week in Austin which is about a month ahead of spring here in Kansas. Got to walk through bluebonnets in the park and eat outside then come home to 40 mph winds. Ahh well. I know the MOPS gals enjoyed your hospitality. I remember being there and how much it meant to have just a few uninterrupted minutes to myself. What a blessing you are to them. Enjoy your day. Hugs.

Diane Price

I'm glad you're back, we missed you! I'm sorry to hear about Cindy, but I too had an aneurysm and I am fine. It was in 1996, had surgery and I'm good to go. I will say a prayer for her. Kim, I love the color you used on your wheelbarrow. I read on your "ask" section and it is called "Jade" at Home Depot, but I can't find it. Have you bought any lately?

Brenda Kula

So hate to hear about any of our blogging community taking ill. We missed you too. You do random better than anyone I know, Kim! And your flowers look wonderful! I've been busy in the garden of course!


I'm Here:) missed you, so glad you are back to put a smile on my face :)

Barbara Anne

Hi again, I've been to Cindy's blog and her daughter says she's doing much better!! Go see!

Patty O'Malley

So glad you're back! I have been checking every day. Love the photos! Sending prayers to all who are ill.


Oh no! So sorry for her! Glad you're back.

Marianne & Mindy

So gland that you are back! I missed visiting you every day. I missed you so much that I painted my kitchen. Guess what colour - a lovely yellow - my husband and I love it. How bright a cheery it makes us feel. Love your photos as always. Easter was quite lovely. How was your mother's birthday? I will visit the blog...My prayers are with Cindy.

Marianne & Mindy

That's GLAD by the way. typo

Fay Marie Torzsok

Welcome back Kim. Sure missed you. I visited every day, even though you said you would be away for a while, but one never knows, so why not check, right?

I had a lovely Easter, thank you, shared with the immediate and extended family. Glad to hear that you've had a wonderful visit with the Mops.

Cheers for now
Fay Marie

pogonip @ meadowsweet cottage

I'm thrilled you're back, Kim, although your archives were a fun substitute while you were on hiatus. I dropped by to give Cindy some get-well wishes--Daisy Cottage has always felt like extended family to me :)

The Easter Bunny brought us an early present of four baby chicks! Life is good!

Lynda Bee

Thrilled you are back ! Missed your wonderful blogging
like crazy. Spring is in the air and I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Easter. You so inspire me in everything
you do. I love all the home tours and your beautiful home and
flowers! Welcome to Springtime!


Kim I want to thank your precious readers for all the thoughtful comments on Cindy's blog. I know how much those messages will mean to her when she comes home from the hospital and is able to read them.

Thanks to you for being such a good blog friend to so many people. You are just one darling lady!

Terri Morse

Hi Kim! Welcome back! I was just thinking of you when I came upstairs tonight. I decided to check my mail one more time, and there it was: your latest post. I've missed visiting with you. I've been pretty busy here. I just finished up a quilt, a fall table topper, and I also pieced the top for a Christmas one. I figure if I start now, I just might have something to put on the table by Christmas! My sister and I have been like two peas in a pod, visiting quilt shops and shows, and sewing up a storm. I'm hoping to have photos up on my blog by the end of the week. Your photos have filled me with hope for the spring. I hope you will have time to stop and take a breath and just enjoy it! So glad you're back. I'll be praying for Cindy. Hugs, Terri

Nancy Maisenbach

Wow! That is a great post Kim. In the first picture was that great big beautiful tree. I love trees like that. next thing I loved was the hydrangeas. So lovely. MOP gals are lucky ducks to see it all in person.

I missed you too and am very glad you are back! Really glad.
So, I have been busy getting ready for Easter filling twelve Easter baskets for our grand kids, a niece and a nephew ranging in age from three to twenty-one. My youngest daughter set up tables on her massive front porch for dinner. It was so nice to be outside. The kidos loved hunting for a hundred or so plastic eggs. They were so happy and cute!
Hubby and I have all the weeds pulled, plants pruned and fed, lawn mowed for the first time this year and made sure all were getting water. Bring on the heat.
Thanks for telling us about Cindy. I am so sorry. I am praying for healing and peace

Can't wait till Friday. You have done a wonderful thing gathering hearts to let Jack know how much we care.

XO Nancy M.
PS Got an error message today saying can not accept data?


Welcome back! It sounds like you have been very busy! In fact I did check back quite a bit to see if you were back! I think I'm officially hooked!! I love my tea but I have never had it with Lime! I will be sure to give it a try! I just love your court yard how beautiful to look out onto it! Have a wonderful week! Sherri : ) I'll be sure to pop over to Cindy's blog next!


Hello, missed you too!
We had a wonderfull Easter.I made breakfast for my parents and my youngest brother and his family visited us in the afternoon.They have a ten months old baby daughter and she is so cute!She has the brightest blue eyes I've ever seen!
On Monday we visited my grandmother and I'm very glad and thankful that she's still among us.
Today it's beautiful weather again and I will enjoy the sunshine in the afternoon reading a book or just doing nothing but sitting in my new garden chair!
I like your new things that you bought for your home and I love the bunch of flowers blooming in your garden! In The Netherlands we will have to wait a bit longer for all these colors, but I can already see tiny bits of green ready to come out.
Enjoy your day,enjoy the sun...
Big hug,Nina.

Patti VZ

I've missed visiting with you....on the other hand I have had some computer problems and haven't been able to check in. :( Glad to see you back! Love the flowers! I have had bromeliads in a children's slide in my backyard, but the dogs thought they were delicious (UGH!) and ran them to death carrying them all over the yard. The impatiens might be a good idea and maybe mix in some ferns? hmmmmmm

Oh, and YES on Goodwill - one of my all time favorite stores!


Just found your blog and I'm in love! I'm off to read more....

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
