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.

I swear that's the very same restaurant (Elizabeths on 37th) that my husband and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary at in 1984!! We had a lovely vacation to Savannah and have always wanted to return. How great to see your pictures!

pogonip @ meadowsweet cottage

I think my blood pressure must register "ultra-relaxed" now after your tour of sweet Savannah. What an unbelievably beautiful city!

Happy Anniversary to you and your sweetie. We just celebrated our 35th(!) and I feel the same way about time disappearing. No regrets since we somehow, like you, knew to enjoy our kids while they were tiny :)


Happy Anniversary!! My hubby and I were married in 1979 also and will celebrate our 31st anniversary this coming Sept.
I've always wanted to go to Savannah, but have not gotten there yet. I still hope that we visit there one is such a beautiful place.


How beautiful Savannah is. I h ave passed by there, but never have actually went in the town. It's gorgeous! My husband went wild over the bookstore. (So did I.) We both love books! Thank you so much for sharing your anniversary with us and I pray that you are blessed with many more!


Oh, I love, love, love Savannah. We've been several times. The first time we took my granddaughter she heard me talking about the ghost tour and she wanted to go on one. She was only 4 then and loved it. Her favorite story was about the ghost kitty (she is soooo my grandchild). We were there last year Labor Day weekend.

I've never been to Mrs. Wilkes boarding house.

I think I've taken pictures of the same buildings as you have.

We go to Tybee when we are there.

Sometimes I wonder where the time has gone too. My hubby and I will be married 40 years this year. Seems like just yesterday when I was 16 and met him. Where did all that time go?

Happy Anniversary to you and Mr. Daisy.

Now you have me wanting to go to Savannah again. I feel so "at home" there.

Ah Savannah. Thank you so much Kim for the beautiful tour. I have been love with Savannah ever since I first heard the name. I think the city hace the most romantic name in all of the USA :) It is my dream to visit one day. I think I will feel quite at home there. It seems to be that sort of place. Glad you had such a wonderful anniversary :)

Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, Happy anniversary!!!! Savannah looks like the most Beautiful place the photo's are so pretty it's funny but I don't know if it's the name Savannah or how pretty the place is but when I see those pics I think of women she is a Beauty!!! congrats Lynn. Have a great day Kim. Trish xox;)

Privet and Holly

Kim: First, Congratulations on 31 years! Couldn't think of a better couples adventure than Savannah. I was there on a b-day trip about ten years ago and, as you said, fell in love with the history and magic of this alluring city. I am actually GOING BACK this summer {hooray} when a certain artistic progeny of mine takes a course there at the Savannah College of Art and Design. We are both very excited, albeit for different reasons. I am looking forward to meandering through the Historic District and taking it all in, camera in hand. Just hope I can do it justice, as you have HERE! Thanks for taking us along on your ROMANTIC trip! xx P&H

Patti VZ

Kim, your pictures make me feel like I was right there with you! Thank you for taking all of us along...we'll try not to intrude on the anniversary celebration. Glad you had a nice trip!


Happy Anniversary Kim!
I have always wanted to go to Savannah. Thanks for the pictures. Looks like an absolutely wonderful place to visit as I imagined it would be. I love the moss hanging from the trees. I love history and Savannah if rich with history.
Thanks for taking us there

Aloisia Tomschin

Kim, Congrats on your Wedding Anniversary. I love, love Savannah, I think of her everyday. The first time I was there it took by breath away. I am happiest there sitting on a bench in one of the Squares and just looking at the Spanish Moss and people. Savannah is a magical city. It keeps drawing me back....


Oh Kim...the pics are stunning! (I certainly could take lessons from you! - smile) I love visiting Savannah - your post makes me want to return soon.
And thanks for the follow-back on twitter!

Good Morning Friends!!!

You are very welcome - thank YOU!



Kim....thanks for sharing your visit to Savannah with us....looks like a beautiful place to visit! Congratulations on your wedding anniversary....yes, time does have a way of slipping away so quickly and quietly...we recently celebrated our 41st anniversary. Judy


Congrats on your anniversay, Kim. My hubby and I will celebrate our 45th in December. Being an amateur photographer, I instantly fell in love with your pictures. These are no exception. The beauty and clarity are just superb. Also I get my morning "kick" when visiting your blog. God bless and have a wonderful weekend. Alice

kim cleghorn

HiKim, Did you knoe I am descended from the Salzbugers who were one of the first settlers in Savannah??? My family as far back as I can remember was from there! I wish I had known you were going! I went to school at Independent Presbyterian, was Christened at St. Johns, worked at The Pirate House, The Chart House, and a great shop that is no longer there on Broughton Street. It is now a SCAD building. I hope you bought the cookbook from Elizabeth's on 37th it is great even though Elizabeth does not own it anymore. One of my Grandparent's old homes is the yellow antique shop right down from there...can't remember the name. Did you go to Bonaventure cemetary? We have a big family plot out there. Did not know you were going until you were gone. I met one of your friends Mary at the art show at ALL GOOD Things...Love her and her art. I also did not know that Jill was your sister...small world...realy want to catch up! KIM


I had the pleasure of visiting Savannah with my sister a few years ago. I will never forget it and it will go down as one of my favourite trips. We were in Charleston the day before and loved that too, but Savannah was the perfect end to a perfect trip. It's like Charleston is the lady with the hat and gloves....Savannah is the lady whose slip is showing....just a little freer and a tad wilder....
if you know what I mean!! Lovely pictures Kim and lucky you to get to spend a few days in such a beautiful spot.

Daisy Cottage


YOU will have to show me your Savannah one day.

Marilyn - I know exactly what you mean and that's another reason why I love Savannah!! ;-)


Rhoda @ Southern Hospitlity

Ahhhh, so since I couldn't be there, your pics will do just fine, sweet friend! So glad you got to meet Vicky & I know when she stops by Daisy Cottage, she will never leave. Happy Anniversary, girlfriend, so glad you got to go back & had a wonderful time. xoxo


Loved the tour by photo. What a historic city...The beauty more than makes up for that sultry heat in the summertime!!
Thanks for sharing your special trip. Happy Anniversary. Getting ready to celebrate our 28th and I know what you mean..where did those years go and hide away???????
Loved the yarn that looked like cupcakes on tiered trays...!! :-) Hugs.

Fay Marie Torzsok

Hi Kim
Happy to hear you had a wonderful Anniversary, may you share many more together.

Savannah is surely looks like a delightly place. I must visit some time. Your photos are so good. I can imagine what it would feel like to be present there in person.

Congratulations Lynne

Have a good rest of the day Kim

Fay Marie

Barbara Anne

Happy Anniversary!!!! We had our 38th anniversary last month and I'm with you in wondering where the time went. I thought I'd be taller by now, too....

Thank you for taking us on such a complete tour of the Savannah! The wonderful porches, magnificent trees, lovely gardens, beautiful flowers, and deep Southern shade have me ready to put my feet up with a glass of iced tea to keep my company.

The Book Lady's shop is too glorious! Can you tell we have thousands of books in this house?

Welcome home! Hugs!


I soooo want to go there someday...and sooner rather than later. I am "homesick" with longing after viewing your lovely photos. I want to plop down in that yellow Adirondack chair in the bookstore and just be...know what I mean? Just be....and daydream.

Thanks for the trip Kim and Happy Anniversary.


This place could not be more charming, what a gorgeous city! It reminds me a bit of Charleston which is one of my all time favorite places that I've been to. I'm so glad you shared these pictures with us! That green house with the blue porch ceiling made me stop in my tracks. Gorgeous color scheme!


Happy Anniversiary Kim! Time does has a way of flying by when you are with the one you love. Savannah is a magical place and once you are there its in your blood forever. Your pictures captured all the wonderful things about Savannah. I loved each picture but was drawn to the graceful legs of the horse pulling the carriage. It just made my soul smile because I love the lines of horses. DH and I will celebrate our 50th this August. We have actually been together since I was 15 and he was 16. Thanks again for capturing the "heart" of Savannah.



Wonderful photos, Kim, AND Happy Anniversary! :-)

I used to visit Savannah sometimes when I was in route to Charleston to see my sister. It is a lovely place. I had always thought we would retire to Charleston, but then my sister left there. So I think we will just stay put in Florida. :-)

The next time you are up this way, I wish you would stop in St. Augustine to have lunch or breakfast or brunch or dinner or tea! LOL! Let me know, and I would love to be your tour guide there. We're not as "fancy" as our northern neighbors, but we have a fun charm all our own, Florida style. ;-)

Love you much...


Sheila :-)

Julie Harward

Hi Kim...
Congratulations on 31 years...what a blessing, you must feel very proud of that! I loved seeing all these stunningly beautiful photo's..I have never been there but I kind of feel like I just got back from there after looking deeply into these beautiful pictures! I feel peaceful and relaxed! You have such a good eye for taking photo's!
I wanted to share with you that I am being featured on the Gooseberry Patch blog today...come say hi if you can! :D

Sandi ~ A Cottage Muse

Happy Anniversary! Thank you for starting my weekend off Savannah!

Angela Kloss

Happy Anniversary! The pictures were divine, that is definitely the feature I look forward to most when reading your blog well aside from the lovely conversation that you provide.


Oh, you are a girl after my own heart-- flowers, porches, coffee houses, bookstores, yarnstores, churches.... It's glorious in Savannah! I hope I can visit there, someday. So glad you and your hubby had a very memorable anniversary! Here's to 32 more years! xoKelly


As usual, your photos are absolutely luscious but with that down-to-earth quality that makes them so real. Not since I read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" have I wanted so much to visit Savannah. The tourism board should put you on its payroll...;)

Happy Anniversary!


Again I can get on.... as I type this I am kocking wood.....don't know what was wrong but sure glad it fixed itself !!! Just like your friend Rachel you mentioned in your email I guess !!!

Happy Anniversary Kim and Happy Mother's Day....

Heidi - Heart and Home

HI Kim,
Oh my what a gorgeous place! I long to visit a city with such charm and history. It really looks inviting, and I could almost feel the warmth of the air from those pictures. They are wonderful, and really capture the essence of the place. Thanks so much for posting them and for sharing your anniversary trip with us. Congratulations on 31 years, good for you!

Savannah is one of our Favorite Cities! Your pictues brought a smile to my face. I'm linking you up to our Friday's Favorites~ if you don't mind :-)


I've always loved Savannah...have been there many times. Just don't go in August or September! You can't breathe outside...the humidity will zap you in seconds. It's the hottest, hot I've ever known...and I was born in Georgia!!! LOL


Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! Savannah looks like a beautiful city, maybe someday I will have the opportunity to visit. Thank you for sharing your pics.

Happy Anniversary Kim! What a beautiful place. Someday I'd love to visit there. I was married in 1979 September! The years have gone faster than I could have imagined!

Happy Anniversary, btw. 31 years, WoW!
Hugs, cindy s


My husband and I drove from Massachusetts the first week in April to experience "spring" in Savannah. It was THE most beautiful time to be there. Everything was in bloom and the temps were perfect for sightseeing. It is truly , I think, one of the prettiest cities in this country.

Congratulations on your anniversary and Happy Mothers' Day!

Lore D'Sa

Dear Kim,

Happy Anniversay, to you and your hubby! Ahhh...Savannah, was a beautiful place!




Hi Kim & Mr. Daisy Cottage

Happy Anniversary! It looks as if you had a wonderful time in Savannah! Lucky you!
I have always wanted to go to Savannah. Have read alot of Eugenia Price books that take place in what sounds like a wonderful place and now I've seen that it is true through your lovely photos.
I thought I might have a chance to go this summer. My nephew graduated from Kansas University last year and then moved to Athens, Georgia. I thought yippeee now I have a reason to go to Savannah! The distant between the two towns is only 4 hours. Sad to say my nephew moved back to KS about a month ago. So now I'm not likely to get their any time soon.:(
But oh your photos of the trees and the churches and the flowers and that fabulous bookstore! Being a librarian I can really appreciate that bookstore!:)
You know I do need a vacation hmmmm...just maybe I will go to Savannah sometime soon!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos!
Have a great weekend!
One question though - who takes care of Miss Maggy & Marley when you are gone?

Kay in KS

Denise Hurst

My daughter and I were just in Savannah, too. While we were there, I saw a woman who "looks just like Kim from Daisy Cottage"! Now I really know I need a better camera. We took several of the same pictures, and yours are SO much better. Denise in Seattle

Esther Sunday

Congrats to Lynn! Plus, I got a chuckle in that I wasn't the only one that thought that Blueberry Mike was a fine flea market item!!! (Kinda figured you maybe thought so too, since he appeared in more than one good picture of him!!!) Happy, happy anniversary to you, Kim! Savannah is just lovely and so glad you had such a good time!


Happy anniversary, Kim. Will be celebrating my 34th in July and I know what you mean about where did the time go? I love Savannah, visiting the places in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, esp. that beautiful cemetery overlooking the river with many famous people buried there. So glad you had a wonderful time! I hope to visit again one day....


Congrats Lyn!

Oh, Kim, I've always wanted to visit Savannah! The beauty of your photos are even more convincing, as is the delicious food I've heard all about. Have you ever eaten at Paula Deen's restaurant there? I simply must go and see this beautiful gem of a city with my own eyes after your lovely, artful expressions. My humble thanks.


Congratulations on your 31st anniversary! That is quite an accomplishment nowadays! My husband and I are celebrating our 25th next month. I too was very young (like 18!!) yikes!!
I never knew how beautiful Savannah was until I started blogging. Such history! A couple of my girlfriends Claudie and Julie just came back from a blogging road trip there and the pictures like yours were amazing! I just love the old trees that look like they have moss hanging from them! We don't have those in Canada!! Have a wonderful weekend : )


Oh Kim, it is gorgeous!!!! I would absolutely love to go there one day. Thanks so much for the lovely tour.
Happy Anniversary! My husband and I married in 1979 was a great year :)
Happy Mother's Day!

Sherry Parsons

I live in Warner Robins, Ga. and I love Savannah, I also love you blog. You have a lovely home and such beautiful pictures. Have a wonderful Mother's Day.


Kim - welcome back! I haven't celebrated an anniversary at Elizabeth on 37th yet, but my husband and I got engaged there! So I think going back for an anniversary is a GREAT idea!

Susan G

Daisy Cottage

Thank you everyone!! I'm so glad you are enjoying the pictures!

Denise!! Maybe you and I DID cross paths!!! How cool!



I'm SO glad you had such an enjoyable anniversary!! And the scenery is as charming and interesting and beautiful as anything you ever present to your friends here.

I most love the little golden chair, set down amongst Rilke and Eliot and The Iliad, as if awaiting a most intelligent child's regular visits.

And I wonder what they would do if you said, "I want that one right THERE,"---pointing to the very bottom one on the stair's trove.


Thank you for including us in on your most romantic Savannah trip. The photos are wonderful. I feel like I've been there, but then I REALLY must go now...


Belated Happy Anniversary, Kim! You gave us a delightful view of your favorite city. I almost feel as if a got to visit there myself through your pretty photos.
Hugs to you and Maggie!


Hi Kim
We also celebrated our 22nd Anniversary, but in Quebec!
I must tell you that Julie and I did stop in Savannah on our way home to Canada last month from Miami and St. Augustine. I LOVED Savannah. I remember you posting about it several times.. and knew I had to go and see what Kim LOVED. So glad we did. One of the bigger stores you had mentioned was closed : ( but Back in the Day bakery OHG... yummy
I actually keep in touch with Cheryl. I love her.
Maybe next time all the girls could meet in Savannah... and celebrate each other : )
Have a great weekend Kim
Love You
Love Me


I love looking at your blog. Especially when the music starts, it just gives me a peaceful feeling. Then, I heard Moon River.... I use to play that on the piano when I was just a wee thing. Haven't heard it in years. Thanks...

Carol Adams

Congrats on your anniv, Kim. Does this mean that you married in May? Hubs and I will celebrate #32 on May 13. Have a great Mom's Day weekend. Hugs

mary-The Calico Cottage

Dear Kim,

Congratulations on your 31st wedding anniversary! What an accomplishment. Wish you both many more years together!
Oh, how I do adore Savannah! When we go, we stay right next door to the Wilkes House on Jones Street, in Luxury Living apartments. We usually rent it for the week. I totally agree with EVERY word of your wonderful description of the lovely SAVANNAH. Makes me want to go back right this minute. In my mind, it's heaven on earth.
Loved all the gorgeous pics, too.


Oh! My! What a gorgeous city! I want to see it in person. The church is breathtaking - especially love the ceiling. All the colors of Savannah are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your pretty pics and a big Happy 31st Anniversary!

cathy gillette

My husband and I were in Savannah in March, and I recognize so many places in your photos. Such a pretty place. We got caught in a thunderstorm, and drenched getting across the street again to our hotel; then a couple of hours later, were out on the town and the weather was perfect. We swear that next time we will take one of the Ghost Tours!


Your photos are incredible always! Have a wonderful Mother's Day ! Hugs...Sue xo


I love the pictures Kim. My hubby and I visited before the waterfront was restored. . . a very long time ago. It would have been our 50th this year, but he's been gone since 2001. Brought back good memories. Thank you. Blessings, Janet


Dear Kim,

I married my hs sweetheart in 1979 too- but we lost him to cancer years ago. I have since remarried (2003.)

I LOVE Savannah - only went there once, with m y eldest daughter and cannot WAIT to go back! There is so much to see and do, and the history is intense there, loved it.

Your pictures are amazing, I always feel as though I went there again when yo post them. Thank you for all the eye candy.

God bless your marriage,



It's always so lovely to "walk" with you in your photos. Thank you.


Wow Kim, the photos are beautiful! The hanging moss, the brick, the ironwork, the lace at the windows, the flowers, all so lovely. And the name of the place itself... "Suhvannah, George-uh..." say it like a southern lady! Wouldn't it have been romantic to live in one of those homes and wear the long dresses and huge hats? Thanks so much for a relaxing tour!

Lynda Bee

Enjoyed the pics of Savannah ! Happy 31st Anniversary
to you and your beloved. My hubby and I will also
celebrate 31 years this summer! The road traveled has
been good, as is life! Wishing you many many more good years
together! Isn't life fun ! Take care and thanks for your
devotion to your blog,I enjoy it so much!


Hey Kim,
So glad that we were sitting on the same bench waiting for Mrs. Wilkes to open! I do believe that our lives are ordered by God and that day is proof of it. Thanks for our sweet conversation. And wow, I can't wait to have more time to look around your blog. LOVE your pics - it feels like I'm back in Savannah when I look at them. I'll be back - now we are new friends, both online and off!

Lynn Paterson

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

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 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

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.

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
