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'd say we think exactly alike ...
snuggle down my friend

Barbara Anne

Yep! Comfy is what counts! Our Florida room sofa is like that. The living room sofa, not so much. It belonged to my grandparents and we had it reupholstered. I'm comfortable on it, but the men in the family seem to perch when on it!

AMIL and I made pear honey yesterday and will make pear jam today. Yum!

Have a delightful weekend!


Really cute and what a bargain!


I think the sofa is smashing!! The addition of the pillows is great. Comfy is a hands done winner!

Hey Kim, That sofa looks very snuggly. When it storms again cuddle with Maggie on it and maybe that will help her fears of lightning. I know how it is. BoBo scatched the paint off the door last week, it was coming a lightning storm and blew a tree down. He has started this recently with at least 15 minutes before you even see a cloud in the sky he will come to the door and whine a little, like a litte whimper and will scratch. And surely in about ten to fifteen minutes it will come a storm. Animals can sense these things. We all hold him because it scares him so. I have been told that we have spoiled him, but I do not like the lightning either and wouldn't want to have to sit out in that either.Your sofa looks cuddly, that is a bargain for only 10 bucks. That is a deal.


You did get your money's worth! I think comfy counts!! Have a wonderful weekend Kim!


Oh Kim - I think it is very cute! No way is it ugly! You found a bargain! Have a great weekend. Here in Texas, we just want a little cooler temp. Maybe just drop down to 90. :o


Love that combo of '60's orange and green against the yellow walls... just beautiful. And your stash of afghans is perfect in the room.


I think it is fabulous!


Sofa looks perfect for cuddling with Maggie or snuggling in with a good book...colors are great.


Oh, dear Daisy friends... if any of you out there also have a lovely $10 couch and would like to adorn it with a free quilt... follow the link...

Have a beautiful Saturday!

A good sofa has to be comfortable, that is the number one rule when making a purchase. The living room sofa in my house is soooooooooooo comfortable that you just WANT to take a nap on it. It is big and cushiony. My dog loves it. Which, of course, means you'll find a number of white dog hairs on it at any given time, but it goes with the territory, she's part of the family. I love your sofa, by the way.


I love the look of the couch! Very vintagy!!


dotsie (aka podso)

Comfort is very important! Plus it looks very Daisy Cottage! I.e., like it's happy there.


I like your $10 sofa. It looks warm and inviting. Have a wonderful weekend! La

Kim I love that sofa! I like it even more for 10 dollars!!

Enjoy your new comfortable cozy spot to be. Great find.

Hope you and yours have a nice weekend:)

Debbie L.


She may be a bit worn ..........but she looks VERY comfy being in your happy house.

Sounds a little like a good marriage...Hope my hubby feels the same Have a beautiful weekend, Kim. Blessings, Patty

My Blessed Serendipity Life

What a bargain! And those little pillows look happy there.

Kim - perhaps you should run a raffle or a sweepstakes, with the grand prize being a visit with you, a lovely chat sitting on that sofa or even better sitting at your kitchen table! eating one of your tuna sandwiches!!! Winner need only to provide their own transportation.....I know I would enter several times daily! :-) Enjoy the rest of your weeekend.


You betcha you got your moneys worth and more. Comfort is sooooo important. I think the sofa is darn cut. Snuggle up with Maggie and have a nap this weekend. That couch is screaming nap!
Have a great weekend


I meant the sofa is cute - oops ;)


what a deal on your sofa, i should no longer be afraid to buy the beauties I find at local thrift stores. your blog inspires me to just "go for it" Kim, how often do you have to "negotiate" with your husband? Seems like he gives free-spirited you, free-reign on the home details. good man! your blog is beautiful. i have alot of catching up to do in your beautiful archives. you have great readers too...


As usual great design and colors! Love it all. The last sale I went to found a 1934 typewriter. It belonged to a man that had retired from Reader's Digest. Back then it was a policy, when an employee retired they were given their typewriter they used while working there. Still had the RDA Number on it (reader's digest association inventory number) Pretty Cool! Have a good weekend. Cindy - Okla


AT LEAST you love your sofa and it looks fine to me. I bought a new one and I am not thrilled with it because it just isn't that comfy. I have caught my dog on it and I just it is known as Abby's sofa! That's what my husband says too, the only one that sits on it is the dog!
But it looks better than my last one so I have to stop complaining! ;-)


I love that sofa! I have been wanting a cut velvet one from the 60's because the fabric wears like iron and yet is so soft. Unfortunately I live with sofa snobs and I'm stuck with a way too expensive ugly leather one.


I don't think they make them that comfy anymore. Nap couches, I always call them!

Rhonda Mitchell

Ten bucks?!!! That makes it all the more awesome! It's really cute...not ugly! and those pillows? Fantastic!!!!


I love it. Those Finds are the best and Usually the Most Comfy...
and I would say from here sure doesnt look to bad..
Very Shabby-miss match -Eclectic Cute.


Makes me wants to crawl up in it and read one of those good books on your shelves ;) Great colors! So inspiring!~Michelle


Very awsome sofa!

Southern Lady's Vintage

I'd sy so!! And I love the pillows and the stack of afghans too!


Hi neighbor friend, love your couch! I wanted to ask you, what days do you think are the best shopping days to hit up *our* Goodwill and Salvation Army? Also, if you ever find a pair of boots that are a size 9 when you are out and about...let me know!! I want to come swipe them up. You are so good at finding things like that!

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I'm loving my new creative outlet.


there is beauty in everything - and your sofa is a beauty! i love my special finds that bring me joy and keep me company. i'm having a great weekend and i wish you the same.

love ya, maria - cottage feel-

Kimberly Padilla

Oh Kim, I love your couch and think it's beautiful. I wish I could find one designed like it. I hate these couches they make today with the loose pillow backs or the ones that push the cushions out. They are so aggravating and aren't a but comfortable.

Pom Pom

It DOES look comfy. Isn't comfy the MOST important feature?

Terri D

$10.00???????????????? are you serious??? Since I am relatively new to your AWESOME SITE... I did not know that about your comfy sofa!!!! I do love a bargain... and that is one sweet bargain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Terri


That's amazing, $10? Of course the way you styled it with all your yummy pillows is what makes it really fabulous!


Just wanted to say that I made your Grandma's Banana Bread this Sunday afternoon, and I love it. My family loves it.
We thank you so much for sharing. Really really lovely.
Thank you always! You're a sweet. sweet. heart. xxoo


Hi Kim,

I love your comfy sofa and can just imagine how nice it must be to snuggle up there with a good book. I'll bet it is super soft too!



Hey, I like your comfy sofa! It looks so inviting. I was sad when we had to get rid of our similar comfy sofa. It was just one of those things we had to do. But our "new" one isn't bad, either. :)


Your accent colors make anything look fresh and fun. I think I've found a color kindred spirit. Check out my blog, for my color stories. Hope you had a great labor day weekend!

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
