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

I must have missed out on your posts about all of this during my time of surgery...but I sure love all these hearts and yours too...what a great thing! You are so wonderful to organize such a thing. :D


Kim, your heart is just precious!!! I love it. I can't wait to hear how Jack likes all his hearts. I think he is going to be overwhelmed with all the hearts and also all of his letters/notes. What a blessing to him in his time of grief. After posting about your project, I have gotten so many wonderful comments on my blog from so many people. There are so many blessings to come out of the sad death of Jack's wife Tabatha. God is good!!! Love & blessings to you for organizing such a wonderful project for all of us to be able to participate in. I was thrilled to be able to be a part of this project. Have a great week. Love & blessings from NC!


Thank you for gathering all the hearts for Jack. It was a blessing to me to send a heart :) Your heart is adorable!


WHat a sweet heart ... just like your Kim. I would never have known that you're not crafty. Your heart looks perfect.


It is so cute!


Your heart you created is so you. Warm and comforting. A lovely little treasure to hold dear. I think this is such a sweet thing for you to do for Jack in his time of need. I am sure that he will appreciate all that you and your heart "donors" did for him too.

Marianne & Mindy


You can tell your heart went into making this sweet heart for Jack and Tabatha. I feel so blessed to be part of the Daisy Cottage family and you are so right, I believe in the power of love.
Hugs to all of you!


What an adorable heart and it is so... YOU.

I enjoyed viewing the hearts and realizing how each did reflect the person who had made them.

My heart goes out to Jack as he misses his Tabatha. May he know how many people are coming along aside him to share his grief but hopefully fill his heart with a little bit of love.

Oh Kim, it is adorable! Your heart is beautiful, the one that is so full of love and this heart that you made:>)

Sandi ~ A Cottage Muse

Everyone would know that heart was from you! Just beautiful. This is an amazing story, lovingly shared and obviously warmly received.

Layla Palmer

You are one amazing lady my friend!
Your heart (both of them) is beautiful, and the world is such a better place with you in it!

Love to you,
Layla :-)


There are two beautiful hearts! The one you made which is adorable! And the one that you have which is adorable too! What a great start to my Monday to see such kindness. Have a wonderful week : )



Your heart turned out beautiful! I love that you included things that meant something to you! I have thought about Jack all weekend. I can only imagine how he is going to feel when he receives all of the hearts.

You have inspired me to start taking pictures. I have always been interested in it, but after seeing your pictures, I have been inspired even more. My question is, what kind of camera would you suggest? I have a small digital camera now, but I wanted something a little "fancier". I don't want to spend millions of dollars, but I don't want one that will not last. When you get a chance, you can e-mail me and let me know what you think! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Your heart is just lovely. You have used everything that is part of you and your home. All the colours you like are included, something from precious little Maggie, the daisy tucked in the apron pocket, the teacup and saucer with your morning coffee, and a blue bird for happiness. You though of everything. You are very creative. Jack will love it very much.

Have a wonderful day, and rest of the week as well.

Dear Kim,
Try a you may to convince us that you are not a sewer or a crafter I will have to disagree. Your heart for Jack is just beautiful and so creative. You are All heart!!! Just want to thank you for inspiring all of us to be great!!!

Carol Adams

Your heart is magnificent and so very special as you are.
I am so grateful to have found your blog. As I have mentioned before, it makes me smile ea and every time I open it!
You are such a kind and sensitive soul. Thank you for the opportunity to touch another, as I feel deeply that we are here on this earth for a reason and not such a profound one at all...just to be there for each other...
In saying that I close with a fave quote of mine:
"I expect to pass through this life but once. If therefore there be any kindnesses I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow beings, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."
Many thanks to you all for sharing your talents! I so enjoyed seeing all the hearts! It's so fun seeing something that you made on a blog you so love!
Much love to you Kim!

Barbara Anne

I beg to differ with your opinion that you're not crafty, Kim. The heart you've created with it's meaningful, cute, and sweet embellishments show most eloquently that you are wonderfully crafty! You are and I love the heart you made and are sending from the Daisy Cottage to Jack.

Thanks again for giving me the chance to reach out.

Kimberly Padilla

Oh Kim, that is beautiful! I never would have known that you don't sew. It's precious! I don't sew well at all, so I just gave Jack an humble and heartfelt comment. I just lost my daddy, so I can only imagine what losing a mate feels like.


The heart you made was beautiful! Maybe it will make you want to take up sewing and crafting....It was a real honor for me to participate in the heart project for Jack. And I was blown away by all of those beautiful hearts. I think you have the most talented readers; every heart had personality and charm. I look forward to hearing how Jack likes them.


Awh! Your heart is the most beautiful of them all....I can imagine Jack's face when he opens his boxes and all those beautiful hearts come reaching out to him. May Jack's heart grow big full of most happy vivid memories of his lovely Tabatha. Thanks for bringing her to Daisy Cottage Jack, and thanks Kim for honoring her here.


Thanks for sharing this heart that you made - so precious!

Mimi Sue

All the hearts are beautiful for sure. Love the colors you used in yours. Hope Jack can feel the love. Mimi


Kim, you are so precious!!!!! Your heart is perfect. BOTH of them!


Your heart is so darling and such a sweet little replica of Daisy Cottage. Perfect. I don't think you can allow yourself to say you are not a crafter any longer! I love your heart, Kim. Both of them!


You are such a precious soul, and I know all of this will touch Jack's heart in unspeakable ways~ Thank you for being you Kim. much love, Tara

Denise Minor

The outpouring of love has just overwhelmed us. On a recent visit with Jack he proudly showed us every heart...we read every note. Touched each heart as each of you have touched ours. It is still so hard to accept that our precious Tabatha is no longer, physically, with us. Still I am amazed by this site and the continual outpouring of love and support you give Jack. It helps to know that people care and understand the pain of such a lose. Thank you again for your kindness. Tabatha's aunt Denise

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you 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!
