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, how awesome is that, Kim? Wonderful!! :)

What treasures! Your house is so beautiful, but more than that is looks so homey and comfortable. I enjoy your blog so very much. I'm grateful to have discovered it recently. I feel as if I've visited home for a little while. In this busy, uncertain world it is nice to to enjoy a few minutes of comfortable nostalgia. Have a blessed day.


Congratulations on being featured in both publications, and your lovely home deserve it!


Robyn Fields

I know you're probably getting tired of hearing this...but the photos of your home make me smile...because they make me happy! Thank you for sharing them...Love you muchly...Robyn and Daisy Mae


Whatever is beautiful and lovely in English is beautiful and lovely in other languages! So happy for you!



How wonderful! I am very happy for you! What an honor! I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!



I want that quilt book, looked at borders and it wasn't there! I am preparing to make my first ever quilt! No experience, I just want too. I will have to buy this book on amazon!


CONGRATULATIONS on the lovely mention in the book and the great spread in the magazine. Both are very much deserved tributes to our talented Miss Daisy!!

Barbara Anne

Applause, applause!!!!!!!!!!! Well done! How gloriously amazing to see your words and your home featured in two publications.

May your words help all who read them appreciate the simple blessings that every day holds.

May your cheerful, happy decor extend the hopes and the path of peace to all who read the article in Israel and elsewhere.

Hugs and happy dancing!

Lavender Dreamer

Congratulations on being in both sweet Kim! Daisy Cottage deserves to be admired by everyone and so does her owner ;)

love you,

Cindy S

Oh Kim, Your home looks so super, duper, lovely in all of the photos! How fun to have your home published. I know this isn't the first time, but I'm sure it always gives you a thrill. And thank you for sharing your sweet, comfy cottage with all of us. It is so refreshing after seeing some of the homes that are obviously put together by monied people. I can't reach for that, not in this life! But after seeing the lovely hominess (is that a word) that you create, I know in my heart that I can do it, too. Love ya, Cindy S


Wow, Congrats! What an honor. Your colors and home are such an inspiration. Thanks.


Wow, what a wonderful honor, both of these! I know you can do google translator if you're able to cut and copy...if you can find this article online, you may be able to then read the copy! I recently found pics of my home on a blog in Brazil...couldn't read anything she wrote or the comments. Google translator helped and I've since added their widget to my sidebar. Hope this helps, Kim!


You are famous around the world now...congratulations. You deserve all the fame for being such a truly kind, compassionate and caring person who makes all our lives a little bit brighter and cheerier each day.

Dear Kim.....your home is the most inviting, beautiful, comfortable, happy, pretty, colorful, relaxing...I am sure I have left something out.....but, I just LOVE your home, and EVERYTHING about it......thanks so much for sharing, smiles, Linda

Deborah Downing

Dear Kim, This is so beautiful and inspiring. I love that your sweet spirit is being spread around the world!
I have been entertaining the idea of painting a "trash-picked" iron table in that same blue, and now I KNOW it's right. Off to pick up more spray paint...
Thank you so much for sharing your life with us. Some days are difficult and seeing your words and pictures always makes me feel better. There is just something so rewarding about taking an old, discarded item and making it new and lovable.


Wow, that was definitely an excellent magazine spread! And the quilting book, I must say I'll be looking for it in my local bookstore this weekend. Just from that glimpse of it, it is reintensifying my desire to have quilts in my house.

Kathy Charniak

How exciting, congratulations - your home always looks lovely. Kathy C fr ILLinois


Touching and inspiring........(sigh)

Take care...


Hi Kim,

All of the pictures were fab!! Wish I could have been there. But my favorite is the one with the fire king dishes, refrigerator dishes and mixing bowls. Everything I love.



Kim~ LOVE THE PICTURES! What a beautiful day for shopping. Favorite thing was the painted furniture I saw everywhere.


Karla Nathan

How nice to think of your lovely home being a "design ambassador" for our country!! You will make the US look great when people read that article.

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!
