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 am just so enjoying your page. Such a lovely, peaceful way to end my day (usually). I like to come home from work and visit. I hope you have a wonderful Saturday as well.

How cute! My DH built a dollhouse for our girls. It is filled with Angelina Ballerina, Muffy Vanderbear, and Hoppy Vanderhare. Their wardrobe is more extensive than mine. Have a great Saturday in the doll house!

Sounds like fun... sure beats the freezing rain we're getting here. The dollhouse reminds me of when my daughter was little & I would spend time decorating it & making it look pretty, and then she liked to come along and play earthquake... shaking the dollhouse until everything was a mess again. We have fun laughing about it now.


We haven't visited the dollhouse in ages. Thank you for the Saturday morning treat.

I'm a little under the weather this morning and this sure was an uplifting visit.

Have a wonderful weekend, Kim. La


That sounds like great fun. I have two dollhouses in the attic, one for each niece. I may want to follow your example if they don't come fetch them.

Donna Rae Barrow

What a great place to spend a Saturday morning! All's well I see... coffee's ready, books are stacked neatly, and flowers are in bloom. Enjoy!

Julie Harward

I want to be in there too! I think your home is really a doll house too! :D


Good Morning, Kim,
Thanks for the little peek into your dollhouse. Our girls have one waiting for them too...their grandpa built it. I should bring it up from Grandma's basement and find a place to display it, like you have.

Happy Weekend ~Natalie


I think we've all shrunk Alice-size this week, with the skies so low and the ice so insistent and lingering. The reds and blues are just what we need to feel the BRIGHT of things, and just being in that small, perfect place, with books and flowers and a comfy chair, with the promise of something warm in that welcoming cup---such a day, such a day.

And is there the scent of a lovely soup simmering on that tiny stove? A storm can only enhance the charm of that.


Love your dollhouse!! Have a wonderfu day!
I've been playing at yard sales, with sandpaper and paint cans!!!

Love the weekend!



I wish I could find a bottle marked DRINK ME and take a sip (Like Alice in Wonderland) shrink and take up residence in the Daisy Cottage Doll House! Your would find me cuddled up in that chair, reading one those books and sipping from that mug!

Your Friend,

Barbara F.

Too cute - love all the miniature crochet pieces - it is putting me in the mood to dig out my old crochet hooks and see if I remember how to do it! xoxox


Oh Kim I so enjoy looking at your wonderful doll house ~ I'm still looking for one. Some day.... Have a great day


So sweet and homey! I love dollhouses. :)

Debbie from Texas

Good idea! My dollhouse needs some work, too. I put it in the attic last year. Maybe I will get it out and redo some of the rooms...........for me!!! Playing is so much more fun that working!


Just darling! Little mug with "Daisy". (Smiling) I'm fighting with big black birds that came out of nowhere, trying to get my "10" sweet little redbirds food. It's still icy and snow, so all the birds are coming here.


I love seeing photos of your dollhouse. Such a dreamy way to take a break, peeking into your little home:)


Reminds me of the dollhouse my daughter had. We put wallpaper samples on the walls. We used it for years. Note I said we!

Kim, you make my heart sing!


So happy that you took us to *visit* the dollhouse today - I always love a peek in there to see what's happening! Thanks for bringing a smile to my day, Kim! Maybe one of these days I will have to get a dollhouse, too . . . such fun!


Something so wonderful about a dolls house, and yours looks wonderful.

Kim, Your dollhouse looks cozy and warm just like Daisy Cottage!
So sweet. Thanks for sharing the sweetness, Donna xox

Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, thank you for taking us to the doll house today :) I just love it. I'm still looking for one. Have a Blessed weekend!!! Trish xox ;)

Sandi ~ A Cottage Muse

Have fun Kim! A fellow shop girl has the cutest doll house in her booth. It isn't old but is adorable and has a front porch swing!




Such a cute dollhouse. Thanks for sharing. We did some grocery shopping in 75 degree weather. Just loving it being so warm.


Recently discovered your wonderful blog. Cutest house! Lucky lady with that Florida sunshine! I look forward to keeping up with you!


looks like you will have fun in the dollhouse - your little ottoman looks like the table next to my chair! i have three books started reading..i also have a book next to my bed that i read at night. do you have a favorite author? favorite book?
thank care


Is there a pic of the outside of your doll house on your blog? I've visited the 'doll house' section, but if there's one, I must have missed it.

I really want a doll house but the UK market is dominated by one company and EVERYONE who has a grown up doll house has the same make. I found a Canadian company that ships BEAUTIFUL American doll houses to the UK but the import charges are prohibitive. I wonder if I could build one? :)

Dena landry

Adorable, love the pun on that Super Bowl, Have a great Super Bowl Sunday, We had a great one last year here in New Orleans,


I've missed your doll house!

Barbara Anne

Utterly charming in every way! I'm happy to see your doll house again, too!


Kimberly Padilla

I just love your doll house! :)

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!

  • "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
