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 had to give up pumpkin pie due to diabetes. Hope you enjoy your pie. I have been eating a few banana chips while my guys eat pumpkin pie over the Thanksgiving weekend.


Awwww...pumpkin pie and two favorite things after Thanksgiving!

Hugs sweet friend,


A slice of pumpkin pie and a nap sounds like the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. La

Barbara F

Sounds like a perfect way to spend the Sunday after Thanksgiving! I will try this recipe for Christmas.

Kimberly Padilla

What a cute post. I always love the Maggie and Marley posts! Thank you for the recipe. It looks yummy, and I will definitely have to try it. I am munching on oatmeal brownies now. Blessings!

Laura @ 52 FLEA

Mmmm....the Sunday after Thanksgiving! Always so cozy and comforting with all those leftovers! Thanks for the yummy recipe! Take care, Laura

Kathy Martin

I'm with rude! ;) What's better than a nap? Pie! ;) Looks so good! :)

Patty O'Malley

This is so funny! My little Maltese, Jasper, kept staring at met to pick him up a few minutes ago. I told him, "in a few minutes--I need to have a piece of pumpkin pie."


Hello sweet Kim,
Yes, please do go finish your nap with Maggie, it's important to keep Maggie happy. I saw a sign yesterday that stated, "With a great deal of training, man really can be a dog's best friend." Hehe, it must be true, Maggie has you pretty well trained.
Hugs and smiles, Cindy

Lavender Dreams

Sounds yummy! Hugs! ♥


sweet Maggie...the pie looks yum... thanks for sharing with us Kim.

Have a blessed week ahead!!



Cheers~Pie & a nap sound wonderful! Maggie is darling and I'm sure she wouldn't mind a bite or two.~Chow Kim

Mary Lou

If only I were there to join you. Both nap and pie sound good!!


That pie sounds delish (to quote Rachel Ray) . I think I may have to try it next year. Sigh ... Thanksgiving is just over and I'm already thinking of what we'll be eating next year. I am sure that's wrong.


Hi Kim: Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and time to relax and enjoy the company of friends and loved ones. Enjoy your pie, it is a holiday treat, indulge! And a nap with a warm fuzzy dachie is always a special moment, never pass one up when the opportunity presents itself ; ) Wishing all the best to you and yours!


Hi Kim ~ Sooo adorable. Pumpkin Pie sounds yummy. I will have to try the recipe for Christmas, thank you. Indulge in a nap with Maggie.

Barbara Anne

Love your imaginative posts and I agree that you've understood Maggie very clearly!

Yummy looking pie. Would you please cut a slice for me? Thank you!


Fay Marie Torzsok

Hi Kim

Pumpkin Custard Pie sounds good. I'll have to try it. Thanks

That is a sweet Maggie! The pumpkin pie looks delicious! Naps do sound good.


I'm assuming she forgave you after you let her lick the plate. You do let her lick the plate, don't you????

(No Cool Whip for me. Oh, no! Gotta be the real stuff!)


Oh, thank you for the recipe, I will be sure to go any make one, it looks delicious!


Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, thanks for the recipe, it will be my first pumpkin pie looks very yummie!! I love pumpkin so I'm sure that I will love pumpkin pie. Have a great day resting with Maggie. Trish xox ')


Maggie, you can come to my house and I will take a nap with you. I won't leave you for pumpkin pie, promise, because I am on weight watchers. Cindy Okla
Love your throw on the couch!


gee wheez mommie, could'nt get back to her fast enough - Bless maggie's little heart - too cute - my son's been making pumpkin pies for thanksgiving for a couple of years now and has made it a tradition and his only 12 years old, and he will diffently add this one to his recipe's thanks kim, (laz). i still feel as though i need to catch up on my sleep and take naps. i wish you a sound and restful nap - thanks again

love ya, maria - cottage feel-


Hi Kim,

That sounds like a good recipe to try.
My pumpkin pie is traditional but my
husband loves it so I try to make it all
winter long for him-even in Florida!
I have made so many of these pies that
I just eye ball all the spices I put in
the pie, no measuring for me.
Maggie looks so sweet in the green chair.

Maggie looks tender and loving. I love that chair she is sitting in, it looks so cozy. How lovely! :)


Thank you, this recipe will be first in the bowl and then in the oven and then in my tummy this will be the perfect munchie for tree decorating!

Deck the Halls!



Thank you for a delicious recipe! But what caught my eye was the beautiful crochet blanket on the top of the chair!! Please share some information about it...did you make it or buy it? Possibly the most beautiful way to stay warm while taking a nap!

Amanda Brown

Maggie is stunning!! :) What a beautiful little dog.

Linda Anne Young

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
