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

What movie?

AMIL and I spent much of today making Concord grape jam from grapes that may not have been Concords (these were small) and they were certainly NOT seedless as the label stated. We hand picked the seeds out. Oh, my aching back! Still, it should taste wonderful!

Off to my comfy chair!



Hi Kim, I want to see Eat,Pray,Love this wkend. :) Sent you an e-mail today but not sure if I did it right I didnt see a send button anywhere. I saved the msg hope you get it.

Sounds like a great way to spend your afternoon....I'm anxious to see that movie too.


I just finished reading Eat, Pray, Love and I can't wait to see the movie. It is going to be so good. I love Julia Roberts and I am excited to visit those 3 countries that were in the book. I just bought a milk glass dish this weekend that is just like the one you have your bananas in. I went on a girl's trip to the beach with my best friend and we went thrifting and to SC's largest flea market this morning. We had an awesome time and I got lots of milk glass and other neat treasures. Enjoy your weekend. Love & blessings from NC!


The bananas will wait while you have a fun girls' afternoon. I always have some over ripe bananas in the freezer so I am ready at a few moments ( OK, a couple of hours to thaw) notice.

It sounds like a great day for a movie to me....too stinking hot to be outside for much anything else - go have fun!


AH - the movies! How fun. And cool! When I lived in Galveston I just loved going to the movies. They would keep is so cold in the theater that people would bring their throws. Brrrr - in a good way!


Hope you went to see Eat Pray Love...I saw it yesterday and I cannot quit thinking about it today. Wonderful story. Wonderful good as book.
And guess what? I've decided to go to Italy next spring for 3 months to discover myself. Alone. Yep! leave family and my puppy to live in their culture to learn about life outside of my own. Have been thinking of doing this for years.......REALLY gonna do it now! Have already found an apt to excited!!!

I love banana bread. You have inspired me. I think I need to make some.


love those dishtowels-look like anthropologie to me!
love your blog, too.


Cute colorful dishtowels too! Just know your life is full of excitement with all your darling colorful decor! Have fun at the movies, went with my oldest grandson yesterday to see a dogs and cats movie. Unfortunately, he woke me up at the end of the movie and said, nana, the movie is over time to go. That's the first time, thats ever happened, thankfully. Cindy Okla


I bet your bananas are just perfect by nowfor yummy banana bread. I made some yesterday. A loaf for now and one in the freezer for later.

I bet you all enjoyed being together and seeing the Julia Roberts movie.

Your blog always makes me smile. So glad Maggie and Marley made up.


Hope you girls have a wonderful time at the movies. It has to be a romance! Looking forward to that banana bread...


My daughter and I went to see Eat, Pray, Love on Friday. I had not been to a movie in ages, and I do mean ages!! Great movie though! I hope you enjoy yours too, and then later make that banana bread!!


I wonder if you are seeing Eat, Love, Pray? I went to see it yesterday and enjoyed it, hope you do too. It wasn't as good as the book in my opinion, but still beautiful and entertaining.


Hey Kim,

Be SURE to see Letters to Juliette if you haven't yet - it is at our cheapie movie theatre now, so should be or already may be available to rent. It is AWESOME - sure one your mom and sis will love, too. Maybe even daughter too, mine certainly did.

Nancy M

I love your thinking!

Oh swoon, that Movie Theatre Popcorn...extra butter that coats each heavenly chewy morsel in the Gigantus Bucket's an obsession, and I refuse to get professional help. Unless the therapist offers popcorn during the session, of course!!

Hope you had a great time at the movie...let us know what you sent to see...


It sounds like a lovely weekend. I hope the bananas will be ready for bread-making soon.


love the goobers and popcorn combo!!!! Enjoy


Hi Kim
A movie is a good idea on a hot summer's day. I'm wondering what movie you saw? Hope it was good!
Hugs, Rhondi

Cindy (aka Grandma C)

I hope you had a great time at the movies this week. Popcorn, comfy seats and air conditioning yes, I"m there

Jennifer Hayslip

What a PERFECT way to spend an afternoon! I LOOOOVE goobers and popcorn together. You rock in my book! ;) XOXO,Jenn

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

  • "It's people like yourself that make everything beautiful and worthwhile." ~ Fifi

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!

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!

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!
