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

Good morning to you!

Yes, it's been said that God don't make junk, so that includes every one of us! We were made of love and stardust. What could give each of us a better start?!

Today I'll get out my autumn tablecloths and change my living and dining rooms to their seasonal outfits. What fun!

In a few minutes I'll have my bowl of Special K, too!


Barbara F

Right back at you, Kim. Special K is my favorite cereal. Your photo captured the very essence of all its wholesome goodness and deliciousness!!!!! I especially like the way Mr. Sun peeked in to say "good morning" to all of us! Enjoy!


Good morning. You are so right we all need to love ourselves in order to love someone else.
Your cereal looks yummy and I love eating breakfast in the sunlight.
Have a great day!

Linda from Heartfire At Home

Hi Kim! I haven't had Special K for ages and ages..... you've given me a craving for it! Yum. It's nearly midnight over here in Aus, and now I'm busy thinking about brekky already!

You have a beautiful day too Kim!

Carrie Merth

Your cereal looks yummy!! Hope you have a wonderful day!!


Have a great day.

Special K with red berries is one of my favorites.

I love that bit of sunlight in the bowl.

I should be getting ready to go run errands but here I sit.


Every time you post one of your cereal bowls, I go running for one of my own. Trouble is, I've already had breakfast!


you got it kim and the cereal looks delicious - i put the crockpot to work and have made roast beef, i used one of the ladies recipes that was posted, the one with the coke a cola it is delicious, thank you for sharing. like you said kim sharing and giving is a good thing and we are all worthy and are Gods Children. i just want to say kim, thank you for taking time out for sharing all you do -you give so much and heal the soul. what a pleasure to know you and you are so, inspiring - you don't pride yourself and here you are taking photos for romanitc country - you are ordinary doing extrodinary things. you are so down to earth and that is what i love about you and sets you apart.

thanks again

love ya, maria -cottage feel-

Debra Howard

Great post! I needed that!

Julie Harward

Morning sweet cheeks...that looks like a good start on the day! Thanks for starting my day off nicely, I always love to come say hi at your house, you always make me happy! Come say hi ;D


A folded-over sliced chicken sandwich with Dijon and just-made sweet pickle slices, eaten at 10:00 a.m., loses a lot in juxtaposition to that sunny crisp bowl of sweet flakes.

When you've been out in this cool Fall morning since 7:30, it FEELS like lunchtime!

Wonder if the day will stretch O-U-T accordingly? A day like this could go on forever. Hope yours is as pleasant!

Melesa Garrison


Breakfast is a very important start of the day so I'm glad you chose to have some Special K. I say that as I haven't had a thing yet, other than coffee. Lol

Congratulations on Romantic Country...You may have done this many times, I don't know, but I'm still proud of you. I'm also proud of you for calling your mama!

I too love the way the sun crept into your beautiful bowl!

Have a blessed day, my friend ;)


You reminded me I need to Swiffer the kitchen and dining room floors. The collies are shedding. Have a happy day, Kim.

Renie Cee

Do you ever directly comment back to people?


Although I'm a southerner, my first bowl of Special K was at a 4 star hotel in England. I didn't even know what it was, but I liked it. I thought it was some exotic European brand. haha (At home, if it wasn't Crispix, I didn't buy it.)


I love that your bowl has flowers INSIDE so you can see them while you eat!

The Lady of the House

ooooh that cereal looks yummy! I'm hungry! I love Life cereal :)

Daisy Cottage

Hi Renie,

I'm not sure what you mean - check your email as I emailed you but yes, if I happen to be at the computer and I see something come through that I can answer I try to within that blog's post and I try to answer my emails too but I don't always receive them due to Yahoo glitches. I read every single comment and do my best to reply in some way as I am able to. And of course I read and appreciate EACH one very very much.

I hope you are having a good day. ((hugs)) And let me know if there is something that you'd like to ask. :-)



A call to Mom will certainly mean Maggie will want held. :o)

Have a wonderful Thursday, Kim. La


I like to start my day with morning coffee, cereal or a blueberry muffin and then read your blog.

You make everyone feel very special and feel like you are talking to everyone individually.

Congrats on the Romantic Country....

Susan Freeman

Have a happy day dear Kim. I had Cream of Wheat cereal for breakfast. It was chilly here this morning and a bowl of hot cereal is a great tummy warmer.

Susan and Bentley

Debbie from Texas

I am eating my lunch right now and reading your blog. It instantly calms me down from the stresses of the day. My husband just rolls his eyes when he hears this music!!! Have a great day, Kim. Look forward to reading your issue of Romantic Country. You are so talented and generous.


Kim, I hope you have a great day! I love your "breakfast" photos. :) I really like that red-and-white cotton tablecloth. I have a similar one with worn edges and a few ragged holes in it that was my dear Grandma's, and I wouldn't trade it. :)


another poetic bowl of cereal, i love it, congrats on your story , i know i say this alot but thank you so much for helping me change my view of things i can truly say life is good i haven't said that for a very long time.

Cindy S

Dearest Kim,
What a beautiful and worthwhile message, I have met so many people along life's way that do not love themselves. They would make better decisions and have much better relations with better people if only they did.
Keep putting your positive, kind and meaningful messages out there, they are so needed.
Hugs, Cindy


Love your happy cereal bowl! Yes, at times it is hard to love oneself, I am my worst critic, but I always try to see the good in everyone else and hand out many compliments! My mother taught me this. Love ya from Okla, Cindy

Kathy Martin

Good morning to you Daisy! Looks like a lovely bowl of cereal and coffee. And the peek of sunshine makes it all the better!

I start almost every morning with an iced latte and a bowl of Multigrain Cheerios. It's a simple breakfast, but I so enjoy it! :)

Kimberly Padilla

Your cereal looks yummy! We mostly always have juice or smoothies, but that looks very tempting. I don't know if I could have passed up the boxes either. I hope you enjoyed your phone conversation with your mom. I try to cal mine about every day since Daddy died in March. Moms are so special. Blessings!

Yummy Food

I have a single tea cup that is Spode-kin of your cereal bowl! Oh the things I find exciting...

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you 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!

  • "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
