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 can feel the breeze coming through the window! This is darling beyond words, Kim.



This is so precious! I think this might be one of my very favorite posts of yours. Thank you so much for sharing such thoughtful, dreamy things!



Kim~ I loved being invited into your dollhouse! As always, the pictures are wonderful! Thank you for sharing them with us! I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!


Kris {The Freestyle Mom}

Gorgeous! But hardly fair that a dollhouse is far more decorated and pulled together than my house. Guess I'd better get working!

Nancy Maisenbach

Your dolls house is so pretty, sweet and creative, Kim; and fun! I loved stories about little people, chipmunks and mice etc living in sweet little doll houses when I was young. I should find some of those books and read them to my grands.
Thanks for the memories.
Nancy M.


Unbelievably sweet. I used to have a doll's house which my uncle made for me. It was white with a red roof, a red door and red trim on the windows. I miss my doll's house but you have brought back such sweet memories.
PS I think you need to add some muffins or cupcakes to the grocery list :)


I am so happy that this being my first visit to your 'house' I am coming in through the kitchen!
Wonderful and I can smell the baking apple pie.
What a treasure.
Thank you for the invitation.

Alison Gibbs

Oh Kim this is just way too cute!! :-)
Love it


Don't forget the ice cream to go with the apple pie! Have a wonderful day! La


Good Morning, Kim,
Such a happy place to visit in the morning. It makes me smile. I see someone has put coffee on the list on your little chalkboard. Yes, coffee is a must...

Have a thoughtful Thursday. ~Natalie


Sweet! And I see Miss Maggie is standing by just in case a tidbit falls to the floor....!
Ok, now I want a dollhouse, too.

Have a GREAT day!

Barbara Anne

This is a good as playing dress-up!

What charming accessories Mr. and Mrs. Dollhouse have acquired! Love the cookbook!


Debbie L.

Thanks for the warm welcome and oh yes please I would love a piece of apple pie:)

You are such a delight Kim. You always make me smile and give me inspiration for the day.

I think you deserve an award for the happiness you bring to so many. Thanks and lots of hugs.

Debbie L.


Lovely, just like DAISY COTTAGE!


I always have a smile on my face when I read your blog. Even if I have a day when I don't feel like it.

Daisy Cottage

Thank you everyone. YOU MAKE ME SMILE.



so sweet--yes, in a perfect world there WOULD be a lovely breeze and no need for air conditioning. i love all the RED accents. don't let Mrs. Dollhouse forget to cross EGGS off her shopping list, or she will end up needing bake two poundcakes and make a batch of lemon curd . . . (ask how i know!)
happy day to you and the dollhouse!

Kathi Layfield

If I could shrink myself, I'd want to live in your precious dollhouse!!! Reading yo ur blog every morning puts a smile on my face and makes me feel so at peace. Thank you, Kim. You are loved.
Oh, and don't forget the dogfood!

Pom Pom

Uh oh! Now I must have cherry pie for breakfast. Thank you for hearing me outside knocking, and letting me come in for a little kitchen sit!

Betty Jo

Your beautiful dollhouse could help anyone get in touch with their inner child. It's soooo lovely!! ♥


You make me want to go buy a dollhouse:)

I think you need a chicken cheese casserole on the table. I tried your recipe last night and it was so good. Thanks for sharing that recipe and your dollhouse.

Susan Freeman

Oh my, you know how much I love miniatures. I see a "Miss Molly" but what about a "Marley"? Do you have one for your dollhouse?? One more question ~ what scale is your dollhouse?

Susan and Bentley


good morning from a coolish southern california desert.thank you for inviting us to visit your doll house - and i love that you have the red and white better homes and gardens cookbook in your doll house - what's a house without that book!! i think some fresh fruit is needed from the store - at least that's what i'm going to go to the store to get..and maybe a good book to sit in the comfy chair and read...take care


Did your sweet hubby make your doll house??


thank you for the invitation and i would love to have some flap jacks and waffles with whip cream and strawberries please, thank you. i have such a sweet tooth this morning that goes along with a sweet person as yourself and your sweet doll house - thank you kim - i'm sure enjoying your hospitality.

love ya, maria - cottage feel-

Kelly McMaster

Good morning Kim! I adore all of these magical photos!
Where oh where do you find all the cute minis?


Kim, I always love your blog. Always love the dollhouse posts and share them with my sister who loves dollhouses so much. Thank you for inviting me in today. You have a good start on the grocery list. Do you need to add just a little candy?


Oh my goodness, it even has a mini red and white check cookbook. Love it!

Carol Adams

Sushi?? Lol
So enjoyed the visit..darling...


LOVVVEEEE your dollhouse Kim!!! Some day I will get to mine..... Some day! :)

Rachel from A Cupcake For Moose

So sweet! An apple pie and a tall glass of milk would be perfect!


I love your dollhouse. Last night I ask my hubby to bring something sweet home for dessert and he came in with an apple pie. Sure made the kitchen smell good while it baked. All I needed was some ice cream, but I settled for a little whipping cream. It was soooo good.
Have a blessed day.




I want to live in your doll house! Thanks for inviting us in today.

Kimberly Padilla

Kim, I love your dollhouse. It's so bright and cheerful just like your house. Blessings!



Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, I think I need a dollhouse, this is sooo cute I just love it. I would love to visit your dollhouse and feel the summer breeze as I sit in that Beautiful kitchen, thanks for the invite! you may need to add some sugar to your list for the coffee!! Have a great day and be Blessed!! Trish xox ;)


Thank you so much for sharing this! Your little house is so inspiring. I have dollhouse parts that I've collected and I think I will finally put them together now after seeing yours. I'm going to follow your blog so that I can follow your dollhouse adventures. *hugs*



I have missed several posts and am just getting caught up. I always love visiting your dollhouse. You have done such a great job. Everytime I see it, I am motivated to do something with mine....but it is currently found a new home in my granddaughters room. She is enjoying it just as it is. Hopefully one day soon, we can make some improvements together. I am back in school and things are SO busy that I haven't had a chance to read or to post comments. I am feeling great....just like my "old self" again. I want to thank you again for your kindness during my illness!
Much love! Cindy


I have never posted a comment before today. I love this post. It makes me feel like a little girl again. This is just what I needed after a very stressful day. It brings back happy memories of playing with my dollhouse and barbies and paper dolls.


So cute! I just want to sit down in that kitchen with a drink and snack, and look through that cookbook for a recipe to make!

Josephine Tale Peddler

Beyond adorable. I can't wait to show my daughter when she gets home from school. She loves these posts as much as I do. xx

Leah Veronica

Love the cookbook!


Hi Kim, I don't know if I have missed it but I would LOVE to see the outside of the dollhouse! There is magic there. I'm guessing it looks just like Daisy Cottage! With love, Denise


I just found your blog and fell completely, head-over-heels in love. It's beautiful. You had me at apple pie.


YES! Every dollhouse and big people house needs an apple pie!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

that jill

Is it bad that your doll house kitchen is cuter and more finished than my actual kitchen?

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!

  • "You truly inspire me to do whatever I can in my own little nest. I've always been an artistic dreamer, but you've enlarged my dreams with your way of seeing." ~ Betty Jo
