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

Karen Dennis

Hi Kim, My name is Karen. I don't have a blog but read lyours faithfully. I have taken many tips from your decorating style and really enjoy seeing Maggie and Marley, they make me smile. My husband was sitting in his recliner behind me one day while I was reading your blog and when I was through he said, hey what happened, I like that music. Keep up the good work and I'll keep visiting. XO Karen


Beautiful that little red rose. Of course we always love the doggie photos. Have a good day!


Your post smells wonderfully...the flowers, not the tuna sandwich. Pictures of Miss Maggie and darling Marley always make me smile. Give them a brisk rub behind the ears for me.

Have a terrific Tuesday, Kim! La

sue silva

I love it! Your puppies are the sweetest little things!


Lavender Dreams

Look how pretty YOU look! Beautiful flowers and cute pics! I always enjoy my time here! ♥ Have a wonderful day! ♥


Good morning Kim: I go into another world everytime I visit with you. My day can be going down the wrong road and, I tell myself, "it's time to visit Kim". :-) I know you will always have something positive to say and look at. I love your pix and your furry friends so much. Have a wonder-filled day my friend. Until next time: God bless you and yours.

Alice from Arkansas


I'd love a Tuna Salad do you prepare yours? Tastes like summer. I used to make them for my girls when they came home from Swim Team practice. So yummy!

Have a terrific Tuesday. ~Natalie

Janet (Shabbyfufu)

Hi sweetie......wilting away down here and staying inside, and tuna for lunch sounds yummy! xoxo


Morning Sweet Kim,

You are so adorable, I love that picture of you.



Hi Kim! I like my tuna heavy on the pickles, and with real right there, and do you like Lay's potato chips? I'll bring my own coke if you have the ice! And I have a couple mini doggie treats in my pocket, too. See ya in a few!


Wow...your yellow house may seriously be my dream house!


I haven't had a tuna sandwich in awhile I just might have to make me one today!

Very pretty flowers I so enjoyed looking at them and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Barbara Anne

What beautiful flowers and wonderful furry four footed kids!

I like tuna with a chopped hard boiled egg, chopped apple, sweet pickle relish, salt and pepper. I highly recommend this combination if you're feeling like stepping out from your usual recipe.

Stay cool - sip iced tea!



You no doubt have one of the prettiest gardens in blogland. I love seeing Maggie and Marley of course. We are now a two doggie family here with the addition of Miss Lucy Lu.


Shannon Olson

Great flowers, really love the pup shots! Our doggie likes to try to chase rabbits, she is getting pretty old so it is kind of tough!


Kim this is such a sweet post. Just a beautiful normal day. I always really enjoy the pictures of Marley. He's such a gentlemanly dog.

Treva Ann

I love your posts for the beautiful photogs and witty text but mostly for the smile and relaxed feeling it provides. Keep up the good work. Happy day!


Oh I would've enjoyed looking at the tuna sandwich, especially if you took the picture. Always a cheery visit here...


Thanks for the flowers! Tuesdays are definitely for flowers...although tuna is good too...hhhmmmmm;)!



I'll take the tuna sandwich on toast please with a piece of cheese too. I'll bring our local made Troyer Farm chips, yummy. How does barbecue flavor sound? Always love your puppies. I have cats and as far as hunting goes, they wouldn't know what to do if a mouse sat in front of them. But we always love the furry ones, don't we! Love visiting you, Kim. You brighten up my day.
Patty from Erie, PA

Susan Freeman

Hi Kim! That's the tiniest baby lizard! I am so happy that Miss Maggie did not catch him. Marley looks so cute. I hope the 3 of you have a very happy day in your charming garden with it's beautiful flowers! Until tomorrow ... I am off to make a tuna sandwich for my lunch today!!

Susan and Bentley


I've got the best-est wheat bread from Trader Joe's and sweet potato chips....yum

I'd love you to see the makeover I just finished ... peek in

Lynn Paterson

Lunch in the garden sounds like fun......especially with your babies!


Tuna sounds great, although I'm opting for Chicken tenders and fries...splurging today!
Thank you for the beautiful rose!
You & your furry babies ROCK!
Hugs to you all!


What beautiful flowers, and I do so enjoy seeing pictures of Maggie and Marley. They are such beautiful dogs! And you are even more beautiful.Thank you. Have a wonderful day and blessings.

Great pictures, Kim. Marley and Maggie are such beautiful little fur babies. I really enjoy seeing there pictures!

sweet cottage dreams

well, tuna fish sounds wonderful and lunch time is soon approaching. i like my tuna sandwiches with lays potato chips tucked inside. nice and crunchy and a bit salty, too.

lovely flowers! your garden is amazing, miss kim!

hugs to marley and maggie.
maggie, it is ok just to marvel at the lizard and not eat it. he eats those nasty bugs in your momma's garden.

becky, duhgall and fiona


Your post today brought back sweet memories, Kim. A dear friend, now deceased....she and I used to love to have tuna sandwiches on good fresh bread and Pringles chips. Would have it with hot tea in winter. Ice cold Coca-Cola in summer. Ahh, good. I enjoyed seeing your flowers and Maggie, and Marley. Glad that little lizard escaped.

Donna at Mourning Dove Cottage

Kim, you are the sweetest! You make me smile. Love the photos of Maggie and Marley, and your flowers are beautiful too.

Enjoy your day!


Hi Kim! You, your flowers, Marley and Maggie are just beautiful! Thought about you last night, while I was sitting on our covered back porch listening to the country sounds, lighting bugs flying around, and my three bunny rabbit friends that come visiting each evening. They munch on bird feed under my red bird feeder each evening. I thought Kim would write this up so well. Your so good putting things into words like a picture and taking pictures too. Until next time. Bless you and yours! Cindy - Okla


Dear Kim your garden and dear sweet pups made me smile more than a tuna sandwich would have! Just one question...
What kind of chips do you want me to bring?


I loved seeing your pretty blooms and cute fur babies today. I was thinking of you earlier while I was shopping in Publix. I brought home the most beautiful bright yellow daisies to take over to a friend. Wish I could share them with you too!

Kathy Charniak

I would love a tuna sandwich with dill pickles. I will gladly bring Jay's bbq potatoe chips (Chgo thing) and maybe Annie can play with Maggie and Marley. Would love a long island ice tea, how about you. Kathy C in ILLinois (where it is very HOT)

Kathy Martin

Thanks for the flower photos! I don't currently have a pile of laundry laying around so I'm happy about that and don't care to see any! ;)

Nancy M

Yes! I love tuna salad on my favorite bread, a pickle and a few Frito chips. So you do take time to enjoy your beautiful flowers and your loving puppies. Every photo was wonderful especially the last one!
XO Nancy M. XO


i'll bring the iced tea..with lemon slices floating in it.


Make it tuna on squaw bread with a little red onion and you have a deal. I pay all my bills online, so the bills come in I pend them online and file them before you can say "Let's go outside and see the beautiful flowers."

Heidi - Heart and Home

Very nice, Kim!
I'm the only one around here who likes tuna sandwiches - how did that happen? Although we all eat sushi. It makes no sense to me.
The flowers are beautiful, and your pooches look very content!


Kim...I want to know who that glamourous woman is behind those Foster Grants!!

animal print gal

Beautiful flowers-how it can be any better than that?


Your flowers seem to be surviving the heat. Very pretty.

Cute doggies as always. That is so cute of Maggie watching the lizard.

I like tuna and I like flowers.

I've had a sick little grand here for 2 days, she requested soup today so she got homemade beef stew. Kinda hot for that kind of food but its what she wanted.

But now I think she's given me her bug.

I live for your Marley photos, Kim. He's a heart-throb!


Enjoyed your pictures, Kim! And I like tuna salad sandwiches, especially good in the summertime. :)


Love all your gorgeous pics!!!! That pic of Maggie watching the baby lizard is too cute!!! Thank you for taking the time to comment on some of my posts! I'm sure you have tons of people wanting you to visit their blog and wanted to thank you for visiting mine!

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!

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 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.

  • "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
