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 think even the dirt and dust of Daisy Cottage must be glittery and have a little sparkly smile, Kim. xx

Daisy Cottage looks even more magical (which I didn't think was possible) after your random day.


I just adore your chandeliers and the darling toile shades... I am a big fan of red-yellows , My walls are yellow and i have a red check sofa.. SO bright Cheerful and Inviting.


I loved the random pictures! Isn't amazing how everything sparkles after you clean? The old is new again! I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!



*Sigh* I just want to visit your house soooo much!

Old books make such pretty pictures! And the birdies! LOVE!


Well I adore your random photos in all their glorious color:)

It feels so good when everything is all clean. Now if it would only stay that way a little longer.



Beautiful, every bit of it, Kim.


Well done. Now enjoy your ramdom relaxation activities.

Terri Driggers

okay.... Is it just me ..... or is anyone else stuck on the pics of the books?!?!? I love old books.. I love the smell and the look of "old" novels!!!! So Kim ... thanks for sharing your love of old books via the camera!!! Your blog just makes me smile every time I visit!!! (including the music) Be blessed today, Terri


Your pictures just makes me smile! I so love the light with the birds on it, sooo cute!

Barbara Anne

It's all looking good, bright, happy, and cheerful but I have one question: where is the clutter???

Perhaps it's just me and a house that's too full, but where does everyone keep back issues of magazines that you love to look at again and again ...? Mine have moved from boxes by title (unattractive) to stacks (too unstable) and back to boxes, but this time by season. Even pretty boxes would have nowhere to go.

Please pardon my puzzlement!


Susan Ramey Cleveland

I think I see a copy of LITTLE WOMEN. I have the same one.

Susan Freeman

Such happy and cheerful pics!!!

Susan and Bentley


What wonderful randomness indeed :)



Gone With the Wind. Best book and movie EVER!


I sooooo need to clean, been travelling a great deal and right now I have all my packages strewn about and things just seem out of order.

I LOVE those yellow birds on your chandelier, so so cute.

Thanks for the eye candy, U R Da BEST!

Randomly yours,


Beautifully random!

Sharon Forward

Nothing more satisying than a random day I love the pics cheerful as always!x


Good Morning,
'And I repeated' ... key words there!! Isn't that the truth. You can swiffer, dust, wash, wipe...and then you have to do it all again in a couple of days!!

I love your vintage books. I have several too! Take care ~Natalie

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

I love all your books, Kim! Wanna come swiffer, mop and rinse at my house? : )

Melesa Garrison

Lynn Paterson

What a cute chandelier......really like the toile shades. And I really need to read Gone with the Wind someday. I have made a promise to myself to read some of the classics out there. Love being random, it is very relaxing!


Random is good! Especially when there are so many pretty things to be seen everywhere.

Very nice. Appreciate you sharing today, and everyday.

Take care,



It all looks so fresh and clean. I don't enjoy cleaning but I di enjoy a clean house. How's that for a contradiction?


I love old books. You inspired me to wash all my dishes and the open shelves they are displayed on yesterday. What a job! I was exhausted last night but I enjoyed spending time with each little cup, saucer, bowl, etc.


Your colorful home makes me cheerful!


Wonderful people, make beautiful homes. Thanks for sharing yours with us.

Kim, Love your chandelier! I love anything with birds because my Mother collects them, too. I am trying to clean up after summer of grandchildren but it is slow going.......ready for some cooler weather, soon!!
Your music is so comforting to me just when I need it, like this morning! I just took a deep sigh and enjoyed it!!!


awwww, I bet it smelled great. love the chandies.


Love that green chandelier with the birds. I know you had to have repainted it. Have you every talked about it and how you did it.

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

  • "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!

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
