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

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and yours and MAGGIE and Marley. As for me Iam thankful for my family and that I get to drop in and say good morning to you everyday.You never cease to put a smile on my face. I love you..........JAN


Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. You have made my life a bit sweeter, helped me reach for more in and out of my home - your blog was one of the first I found and one of the first I read each day! Joey sends Thanksgiving wishes to Maggie. He will be served a 'new' doggie food today - called 'Thanksgiving Dinner'. Found it at the groomer's store and thought he needed something special. He says if Maggie could drop by he would share with her!


Happy Thanksgving to you and your family. You light up my days with your wonderful blog. May you and your family have a Blessed Thanksgiving.



Thanksgiving Blessings being sent your way. Have a wonderful day! Thanks for coming by, you made my day:)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Enjoy all of God's blessings!



I am thankful for the commitment and consistency with which you post on your blog. I'm sure it is a challenge sometimes to get to it. But ever since I found you. I come to get my fix everyday. Funny how God continually gives us things to be thankful for and to bless us with-- if we only just open our eyes. Funny how that works too, we see more and more of what we do have and less and less of what we don't. When I see Maggie "praying" :-), I think of my little Mimi (cat) that went home to be with Jesus right before Thanksgiving in 2002. The thing that got me through my grief was talking about her to everyone and thanking God for her and recalling all the funny things she did and how she loved me so much. When my little Mimi was sick (with kidney disease), I used to sing to her: Yes Jesus loves Mimi, the Bible tells me so and she would purr so loud. Really. So, it's no stretch for me to believe that Maggie really is praying, maybe for all of us (and God is shining down on her with His glorious light) XOXO


Thanks for your blog!!!


I thoroughly enjoy coming here daily and seeing your photos. They generally evoke a happy smile to my face. Thank you for always sharing. Happy Holidays to you and yours. From our home to yours. Tammy

What a precious post! Happy Thanksgiving! Many blessings to you all! ♥

Rose - The Center of My Self

Hello, my friend! As I've said before, one of the things I so love about you is your awareness and joy in every moment; in the joy of sunlight through a window, a colorful pitcher, an embrodered apron, a visit on a friend's front porch. Awareness opens our hearts to gratitude. Blessings to you and yours, dear Kim!


Beautiful prayer. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Your site has been a blessing to me and one of the many things I'm thankful for each and every day.


Oh what a lovely poem! I had someone in line at the grocery store ask me if my sons and I planned something special for Thanksgiving. I just smiled and sighed, looked at my two boys standing next to me, and thought for a moment. Then I said very sweetly, "In all honesty, everyday is thanksgiving for our family. We try to be thankful every single day - so this day isn't any more special...but a good reminder to those who don't always remember to give thanks." She smiled brightly and agreed.

Kim, with you every day is thanksgiving. You're that precious. *hugs*


Oh, Maggie you look adorable today, but you always do. Your mom has such a wonderful way with words, they sound like music to my ears. Happy Thanksgiving to you all too.
We do have so many things to be thankful for! Love, from Okla, Cindy


Beautiful, just beautiful!

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!

  • "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
