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

When I read your posts in the morning...that is how I feel! And I don't know you or live near you!

Now I have you to remind me of something even more relevant, thank you from the bottom of my heart!



Thank you, and You TOO, Sweetpea!!

Hope your skies are blue, your clouds fluffy, and your days magical.

My Blessed Serendipity Life

Blue skies and so much happy to celebrate!


Yes, and we all should be so thankful. Thank you for making such a sweet blog!

Hi Kim
I'm up early catching up with a few of my favorite bloggers. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Rhondi

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

So glad I saw you posted because I read your article in the last Where Women Creative magazine and wanted to say that it was very good, Kim. You have a lovely home and, just like your home, you do make your blog feel very welcoming.

I saw a gorgeous sky last evening - the sun was going down behind clouds and it had that beautiful pink tinge to the sky. I always feel so blessed to be able to see beauty that way.


Good morning Kim. I just LOVE pictures of the sky and anything that reminds me of my heavenly Father. Come to think of it, that just about covers my surroundings. :-)

Have a wonderful weekend.

Alice from Arkansas


Sometimes I look up and think that my son, who is deployed, is looking at that same sky! Thanks for reminding us again!



Thank you for the lovely photo and the reminder to look up.


What a perfect way to start the day. Happy Saturday, Sweet Kim! La


ah yes .... thanks for the little kick in the bootie


What a beautiful saying! Your blog is like a Summer breeze ... so very refreshing. I am so excited to follow. Have a beautiful weekend.

I needed a little extra boost this am, had a bad night, but this boosted my spirit! Thanks Kim xoxoxox

P.S. Did the little black puppy from the Fancy Flea get a name yet?


Thank you inspire me to live beautifully...I'm so glad I found your "dear daisy cottage". :)

Debbie from Texas

Yes, God is there and friends are all around. Have a blessed Thanksgiving! I know that I will! It is a busy time of year for all of us, but nice to remember what is really important.

Barbara Anne

Long ago I remember hearing of a man who wandered on streets between the high rise buildings in New York city calling out, "Look up - you can see the sky!"

Yes, a profound and welcome message for me, too.

Happy weekend to you, Kim!



Kim ~ thank you so much for the wonderful blessing. Look up, WE are NEVER alone.


The older I get, the more I cherish my friends - both near and far. Such blessings we have!!


You always have an uncanny knack for saying the right thing at the right time. I really needed this sentiment this week. Thank you so much!!!


Beautiful blue skies in north Texas today. I looked up! :D

Kimberly Padilla

What a beautiful post!

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. (Psalms 5:3)

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. (Luke 21:28)



God is always there even if there are clouds blocking a beautiful sky. Bless you. Judy

tea time and roses

Happy weekend to you too dear Kim. Beautiful photo!




Very true, dear friend. Happy weekend to you!
Hugs, cindy

I just want to tell you how inspiring I find your blog. It is the first one I go to every day. You are so uplifting and sweet. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Melesa Garrison

No matter what happens in life, we need to remember we are not alone. My daughter was robbed at knife point friday night, but he didn't hurt her and her things were turned into the police with nothing missing the next day. Somebody was definitely watching over her and she was not alone! Thank you for your inspirational words and lovely pic!

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
