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 love your doll house! The pictures are awesome! Growing up I never had a dollhouse and I always wanted one. I think I still do probably more than when I was little. I think my taste is better now than in the seventies!! Have fun playing! That's what keeps us young!!


What a fun thing to have :) I haven't had one for many moons but I think it's a great way to show creativity and what a better way to escape into our own little world once in awhile :) It is adoreable!! I just love waiting to see what you'll come up with next sweetie!

My Blessed Serendipity Life

I love your dollhouse. It's just like Daisy Cottage! Do you make things for it?



Hi, Kim,
I love it when you post pics of your doll house. It's just so cute! Thanks for sharing.


How darling that the doll house furnishings match your house!! I'm with Danielle--do you custom make those things?


I just love your dollhouse,too - and I've always wondered, too if you make the pretty things in it? Inspires me to create a dollhouse of my own to play with!


everything looks so nice and tidy - i would love to see my big doll house nice and tidy - everything looks in place -i sure enjoy little things that make a big difference. have the bestest wednesday ever!

love ya, maria - cottage feel-

Josephine Tale Peddler

I totally love your dolls house. Is it possible you can share a few links of where you buy your goodies? I did get Dale's Etsy store through you and if you have any more. I do love those cute little books! The Maggie dog is wonderful too. I just did a post on my Blog about Australian artist Mirka Mora and her beauty tips. She is a big dolls house lover and she advises playing with them and sucking your thumb also for beautiful skin. She does it to trick her brain. And so playing with your dollshouse is not only good for your soul but also anti-ageing! xx

Cindy (aka Grandma C)

Yes... I so love your dollhouse as well. Neat, clean, and everything in its place. I find as I look at your wonderful pictures that your doll house matches daisy cottage so well. Detail, detail, detail a place for everything and everything in its place. Your wee little things are a sign of happiness and I want to thank you for bringing us such happiness looking over your pictures. Remember to drink, I have a hard time with this one

Trish Rowley

I love your dollhouse too Kim, it's beautiful. So glad your not in the dog house lol. Have a great day Trish xox ')


The details in the dollhouse never fail to take my breath away. So tiny and sweet! i adore the little crochet linens and the teeny books. It's all so perfect!


Your doll house is soooo cute. I love the pics. I would love to have a doll house some day. How did you get started on it?
Everything in it is just so perfect
Have a great day ;-)


I would like to have had that size house to clean yesterday ;-). Then I would have sat in the gingham chair with May and read one of the books, feeling ever so cozy.


It's been a while since we visited the dollhouse. It's lovely, like you. Have a wonderful Wednesday, Kim! La


What a fun chore! Your dollhouse is completely charming and echoes Daisy Cottage beautifully.


Seeing your dollhouse again makes me wish I had one's been years and years since my sister and I played with our dollhouses. I'm glad to see you have a little dog to enjoy your dollhouse too.

Pom Pom

Oh, so sweet! What a well appointed little mouse house you have! I especially love the wing chairs!


I just love your little house! I really need to clean mine too!


oh YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY you posted dollhouse pics! You just absolutely made my day! We haven't seen new ones of Maisey's world in forever!

: - )

Thanks for the eye candy thrills, Kim.

Have a great day, little or big, enjoy your spaces.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home & Lavender Hill Studio

I can't believe how your dollhouse looks so much like your real house...I love all of the attention to detail.

Barbara Anne

How charming! Each and every color, accessory, and inhabitant are perfect in every way. Where is Alice's shrinking potion when you want it?!

Have you seen Colleen Moore's dollhouse - castle - at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. You should go or at least see the fairy magic on line.



I love it! I want one too!


I love your dollhouse! It's the sweetest thing evah! : )

Lavender Dreams

Wish I was there to play...I mean help! Have a lovely day! ♥


Oh I just want to move's so cozy and it already has a doggie:)


Susan Freeman

Ooo, Ooo, Ooo ~ I Looove it!!!

Susan and Bentley

PS: And I am crazy about it too!!!


Bright and cheerful and neat, like its occupant.

My own dollhouse, alas, has gone the way of the years, with naught to show save the tiny plastic "buffet" in a swirly brown "wood" finish, with a minuscule drawer which sticks halfway---just enough room to shake out the tiny birthstone ring which no longer fit my finger after I was ten.

The three hollow white plastic kitchen appliances---stove, fridge and free-standing cabinet-with-sink---live beneath a cakedome on the kitchen passthrough. There's a little rug on the floor, along with a minutely-molded rubber duckie and a tiny white red-rimmed baby potty; two blue spatterware pots sit on the stove, and a tiny white tureen and pitcher on the counter.

And, mirroring the tenor of our own household, the rest of the dishes, a skillet, some glasses, a plate---are all piled into the sink.

Layla Palmer

When can I move in? ;-)



... do they make miniature swifters???

... must be a lot more fun than real cleaning


I love your sweet dollhouse so much! I have a little pink dollhouse, where Meg resides. I never had a dollhouse when I was little-- so I bought one about 2 years ago! It's never to late!

Drawn to the Sea

It's only right that a doll should have her own dollhouse :-)


your doll house is adorable.

The miniature dog is so detailed. The first time I saw it in a post I thought Maggie had a new friend.

I remember having a metal dollhouse that we put together.


I always love visiting the dollhouse! Thanks for sharing the beautiful picutres!

Bella StyleBook

Your dollhouse looks so familiar. Guess that's because it reminds me of your house photos.

Fluffing is a good adds good Chi.

Jan @ BellaCasa


That dollhouse DOES tempt you to "Come inside and stay awhile", doesn't it? Thanks for sharing your visit.

Kelly McMaster

I SO love your dollhouse too!!
Mine is super duper neglected too...I really need to work on it this month--still been busy arranging and re-arranging my 'real' stuff and have ignored my poor little dollhouse!
Have a wonderful day!


And Maisey is so adorable - almost as sweet as your Miss Maggie! Please give them both a hug from me!

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage

How fun, Kim! It must be a blast to play in your dollhouse. Sooo cute that its decor mimics Daisy Cottage.

I've been AWOL from blogging for several weeks, so I had to come by, catch up, and say hi.

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage


Hello Kim. I've only been following you for about a month, so I so enjoyed looking at all your old doll house photos. Beautiful! And I love that you decorate for the holidays. You feel like a friend that I visit every day.


your dollshouse is so pretty, ive had to put mine in the loft for a while to make room for a cot! im missing it looking at your lovely photos! fliss xxx


what a great project, i wanted to thank you so much for your reply to my post and the most fab thing just happened my grandsons came after school and i was sitting on the couch with my 14 yr old and had the most awsome moment and you were there , i told him how i wanted him to start paying attention to the most littlest of things that make him feel wonderful, how sometimes we can go through the day looking for something to make us feel good when it is right in front of us, and i was reminded of what your told me, oooh seeds that are planted are good, thanks for the harvest that is going to be past on, Kathy

Daisy Cottage


thank YOU.



Cutest Dollhouse I have ever seen and the decor! Cindy-Okla

tea time and roses

Lovely dollhouse Kim! I am always delighted when I visit here. Happy week to you!




Kim~ Thank you! I've been going to get my Mom's doll house out and fixed up for the longest time. Looking at yours, and seeing the love you put into it is inspiring. I think I'm closer to an Open House.

I absolutely love your dollhouse, each time I see it I always say out loud that I need to buy my own little dollhouse now to find one.


Dear Kim,
I just wanted you to know that your blog is getting me through a very rough time. The music and colors of Daisy Cottage have been balm on my bruised soul. Thank you for creating a beautiful place to visit.
With Kindest Regards,

Melesa Garrison

Kim, What fun you bring to so many ;-) I love the (mini Daisy cottage) The little dog looks so real. I never had a doll house, but my girls had two Barbie Dream houses and lived next door to each other in the play room. I loved making them look all pretty and have everything in its place before and after the girls had their play time. One can really get carried away to another world. I now play with my granddaughter with her doll house.
God Bless your creative soul, Melesa


You always make me smile. Thanks ;-)

Dreaming Bear

What a great lil' doll house! I love these pictures so much! Reminds me of when I was a little girl, playing with all kinds of miniatures. Aaaahhh....good times. Thanks for sharing!


When I grow up, I want to live in a house just like that!

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
