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 have never seen daisy soap - cute! Almost as cute, but not quite, as my four-legged baby, Daisy. :)

Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, if I was a little white pumpkin I would love to just hang out at your place too. Love the little daisey soaps. It is a great belief of mine that water cures all ills when I'm not feeling well the first place that I head for is the bath nothing better. I hope that your back is feeling better Kim there is nothing worse than a sore back have a great day. Trish xox ;)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

Such a pretty vignette with your white pumpkins, Kim! I was looking for a few little white ones when I was food shopping last night, but everything was orange or a gourd.

Barbara Anne

I always enjoy hanging out at your house, Kim!

Today will be too busy to hang out for long right now though.



Who wouldn't be happy hangin out at your house! I only hang out on the net here and I'm happy every time I visit you. Hope your back is in tiptop shape today. Blessings to you.

I need to clean my bathtub . . . and buy some daisy soaps.


awesome photos

love the soap, love the white pumpkins, love the way you capture quick moments the rest of us don't see - such as(photographing the sun on your shower curtain, for instance.)

i JUST last night took a half hour long soak in the tub and opened up a round white soap too- nothing as cute as a daisy, but kind of a coincidence.

happy day to you


i love the daisy soaps - it makes bath time special and pampered - your cutie pumpkins are really a nice touch for decor and i think all year round. love all your decor as always - really enjoyed! thank you

love ya, maria -cottage feel-

Melesa Garrison

Don't you just love the white pumpkins? I got a white one, two big orange ones and one flat looking one that is such a dark orange that it is almost red...LOVE IT! I'm not crazy about Halloween, but love fall and love pumpkins!

Hope your back feels better, Girl! I took a hot bath last night and I thoroughly enjoyed it ;) I usually take showers, so it was a treat!

Have a Blessed Friday, MG

Jan @ BellaCasa

I love white pumpkins. Very pretty vingette! Have a Happy Halloween!


It's always a delightful treat to hang out with you, dear Kim! You always cheer me up.


Happy Halloween and have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for all the lovely posts, it is always a pleasure to 'visit' with you and the doggies : )


No tricks, your blogs are all "treats"!
Have a sweet week-end.


Your black & white plate is gorgeous! Arrangements are always wonderful! This will be the first year, not to carve out a pumpkin with a happy face. Boo Hoo! Grandson is going on 13 years old. He's not interested this year, but he does go to the Hay Maze, south of us in the country. My othert two darlings, live near Houston and I'm sure they will be, 8 and 5 years old. Have a Happy Halloween! Cindy OKla

I love those little white pumpkins, haven't seen them up here just the orange ones. Love that vignette and the way you capture the very essence of a beautiful sunny day. Love hangin' out here - either with my morning coffee or just before beddie byes. :-)

The pumpkins looks wonderful Kim, hope your back gets better soon. if you can get hold of it Biofreeze is very good for sore backs. jane


Adorable soaps, I'm sure they would make everything better. I sure wish we had some sunshine like that up here in the cold (40 degree) north!


It all looks nice! :)

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!

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!

  • "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
