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

Hi Kim, I just got home from a friends place two doors down from me, while I was there I asked her son if he would keep an eye out for a small white dinning table for me as I need one. Came home and checked out my fav Blog and there it is (you have one) the perfect little white table. I hope that I can find one just like yours. Have a great weekend. It is Saturday afternoon here so I have almost finished my cleaning but I am going to break the rules of my raw food diet and bake a cake we all need a little sweetness don't we? Have a great weekend Trish xox ;)

Kimberly Padilla

Hi Kim. Have an excellent weekend. Your table and chairs look adorable there! Blessings!

Barbara Anne

I'm going to bake a Chocolate-Pistachio cake for the 3rd time in 9 months because it's so delicious!

Your newly arrived table looks like a choice place to work a jigsaw puzzle! I enjoy rearranging furniture, too, and seasonally swap a small upolstered chair with an open chair, both of which belonged to my grandparents. Our room aren't large enough to allow for much re-arranging.

Happy weekend to you!



Oh Kim, what kind of cake will you be baking? And can you post a picture? (I love your pictures).
This weekend I will be painting my guest room a fresh garden green! This is a project I have put off for years and it feels so good to get something done! this morning I put the second coat of primer on the walls. I'm excited about the new year, new room and life in general!


Rearranging the furniture is what keeps me sane this time of year. Happy weekend, Kim.


Bought "Not Your Grandma's Quilt" book because a certain blogger had a lovely comment in it. Her name is Kim McCole and she is the neatest person! She takes gorgeous pictures and shares them with ALL of her friends. She has lots of friends because she is so sweet!


Happy cleaning! I'll be doing the same as well as painting, and painting, and painting...


I love that you are always moving things around in your home. I try to do the same, if not with the furniture, then at least with all the collectibles. Looking at the same tablescape all the time gets boring. Have a wonderful weekend, dear Kim. I loved your man on the bike story. You are truly blessed.

Erin Houghton

Hi Kim,

Have a fun weekend baking and moving things around. Yes, I love to re-arrange my furniture - kind of like playing house as a little girl only sometimes the furniture gets a little heavy moving it from room to room. I love the way you arranged the table and chairs.

Yummy - cake sounds like a great idea - think I will bake one myself.
Bentley sends a big tail way to Maggie,


Oh, Kim, Thank you for the darling pictures! I just can't make up my mind whether you should be a professional interior decorator, professional photographer, or famous author. You are so multi-talented. So enjoy your music too!! You are truly a blessing! Love from Okla, Cindy

hi kim , cake sounds like a great idea, kids coming for dinner tomorrow, Just some BarBQ chicken, and mac and cheese, grandkids love that, and a cake would top it off. Thanks for the idea, I am new to your blog , and love it so much, I sit for hours in the evening,( instead of looking at TV ) looking at you post and pictures from past dates, and months. Love your outlook on life, it makes my day i have told all my friends about the site, and they love it too. Well you have a wonderful weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We will be going to visit our daughter, son-in-law and precious new granddaughter and attend church services with them! Now that's a good week-end!! The only baking I've done so far this week-end has been Baked BBQ Hotdogs :) They were very yummy, too! I'm so enjoying your photos and posts. THANK YOU for bringing so much joy to so many.

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
