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

Good morning, Kim! How I long for roses and spring. Right now in the TX panhandle it is 3 degrees w/ blowing snow and sustained winds of 35 mph ---- wind chill around
-15 degrees. Brrrrrrrrrrrr!!! Enjoy your nice, warm, sunny Florida weather! I can always dream about it!

Ricki Jill Treleaven

That is the neatest picture, Kim. The roses are gorgeous: they look like they've been dipped in red pint. The little bowl is cute! Happy February!!!

Bella idea di dare il benvenuto al nuovo mese con i bocciuoli di rose e...poi è prossima la festa di s.Valentino,saluti,Rosetta di theromanticrose.

Donna Rae Barrow

What a lovely way to brighten the day! So glad for the inspiration in the midst of this long winter... thanks, Kim!


Beautiful! Is that daisy's I see in there? Look, at the sugar bowl! So sweet;) Hope you have a great day Kim!


Beautiful! We are expecting a blizzard today! Those flowers would certainly brighten things up a bit!


Very February 1st is spent with the fire & wintery weather...wish I had some pretty flowers, too! xoxo Beth

I read that while much of the nation has a blizzard, in Virginia we'll have a high of 70*F tomorrow. Amazing!


Carol at Our Sears Kit Home

Lovely. Displayed where you can enjoy them all day!


Gorgeous roses, Kim! So lovely to see when it's a blizzard outside here in Kansas! But today is my kitty Peanut's 6th birthday - so of course we are celebrating, in spite of the weather!

Beautiful roses to kick off "heart month" from a wonderful lady with a big heart! Thanks, Kim xoxoxox

Kim, I love reading the comments from Rosetta in Italian! Do you need help in translating? I am certainly not fluent but I can give you the gist of it.

Your photos warm up my cold days. We have a lot coming tomorrow and depending on which way the wind blows, we may have a snow day!!! YEA!! But I'll look through my favorite blogs (yours is #1) and be warm and toasty on the inside!! Thanks Kim!!

Melesa Garrison

Lovely flowers...In a few days those roses are probably going to go up in price, huh? I suppose alot of people buy roses for their Valentine Sweetheart! It is extremely cold here today -3 and the high is 13 for the day...Yikes! After showers were taken this morning, we had no water. I pray we will have it again this evening. We are truly blessed no matter what life deals out! Lol Kim, thanks for your lovely posts ;) Have a wonderful day in the warm country!

A homespun year

Hi Kim, just found your blog...can't wait to read more. What beautiful roses...makes me forget about how cold it is here at the moment. Roll on summer!

Carol Adams

So nice for you to share the beautiful roses for the first day of February!

We are experiencing anything but "beautiful" weather here in Indiana. The only good thing is that my husband is staying home today!


Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, the roses are beautiful, mine are suffering in the heat wave here at the moment, yesterday it was 42* Celsius which is 107.6* Fahrenheit and today is going to be much of the same. Sounds like the weather is extreme all over the world. Have a great 1st of February!!! Trish xox ;)

Janet Williams

Hi Kim, I have just started reading your blog in the last couple of weeks, and I LOVE your photos! Do you have any tips for a new blogger like myself? Janet

Pamela Weichmann

Absolutely beautiful! I love the little sugar bowl.


Ahhh roses :) .... I have noticed my currant bush is starting to put shoots out, the tinest leaves slowly unfurling, to be followed by a lovely cluster of hanging white flowers hanging like chandelier drops. Emma the dachie will go up and smell the lower ones once it blooms, but that won't happen for weeks yet as we are in the Pacific North-Northwest (Canada). The hellebores (lenten rose) already has put out a few brave flowers, but they will pull through should be have a snowfall again. The anticipation!!! It is almost here!!! Spring. Hugs to you and yours.


Last week I saw the same type of roses in the flowershop, but bought some beautiful Gerberas instead.
Next time I'll buy the roses... Defenitely!

Terri Morse

The sugar bowl is as pretty as the roses. I love the way you styled the photograph! Very creative! Hugs, Terri

Debbie from Texas

Keep warm, my friend! We have dropped 45 degrees in cold!! I was hoping I wouldn't lose my flowers this year but Mother Nature has other plans. :) Thanks for the ray-of-sunshine with the roses. I needed that today!


So very pretty, my friend!
Hugs, Cindy

Thank you 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!

  • "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

  • "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
