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

Pretty! I can see why it makes you so happy, Kim! I'm having coffee this am with my liile daschund on my lamp. We had a lot of ice last night, so am not going to the mall to walk this morning. I am about to get underway with my Monday morning chores!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expression

It's so pretty, Kim! That would make me happy, too. I have a Ralph Lauren sheet set with a mint green background, but similar florals, and I just love it.

Barbara Anne

Score!!! That bedskirt is lovely and is in just your colors, too. I can just imagine how deeply happy it makes you!

I never seem to get to our Goodwill store at the right time to find such a perfect treasure.


Ricki Jill Treleaven

Very nice! You found a treasure for less than a Grande Vanilla Latte! You go, girl!


I Love it when I find cute stuff like that at Goodwill!

Linda Evans

wow Kim, I LOVE that, love florals and love the colors, you done good!!! Ralph Lauren has beautiful things.....Linda


Wow! It is perfect and what a great deal! I hope you have a wonderful day!



Beautiful! Love it with the yellow. No wonder it makes you happy.

sue silva

Susan Freeman

Just $3.00!!! Wow what a great find. I love that sweet and cheerful print. It's just so cottagey ( is that a word??) Have a wonderful and sunny Monday.

Lots of love,
Susan and Bentley

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Lucky lucky you! That bed skirt is amazing.


Wow, what a great find. I would make me happy too--if it were mine. How could anyone wake up in a sour mood with a bead dressed in cheery yellow and a flowerd skirt like this?

Andrea at Opulent Cottage

Such a pretty print! Love it, Kim!
xo, Andrea


You are so lucky! Everytime I go somewhere like that I'm sure they see me coming. "Here comes Jean! Hide all the good stuff!!!" LOL!

Fay Marie Torzsok

Very pretty Kim. Fills the whole room with sunshine. Good fine.

Have a good rest of the day.

I have always loved that print from RL...and I
think you are one lucky lady to find it at GW!
I like having various colors of bedding to move
for the change of pace. Some of my favorite
photos are when Maggie snuggles in your bed.
I can so relate since I have a yorkie named
BeBe and she LOVES my bed when it is empty and
she can pull the covers around her!

Kathleen Grace

I love RL and this pattern is so pretty! Great find:>)


That would make me happy also. All those bright colors! Very pretty.

Terri Morse

The new bed skirt looks absolutely gorgeous with the yellow coverlet. What a fabulous find! You have a talent for finding the good stuff! Hugs, Terri


As my very feminine, victorian grand-daughter would say...oh Nanna, you scored! So "oh Kim, you scored" and btw, thank you for supporting Goodwill, one of my bff's is the CEO of the Hawaii Goodwills, great non-profit!


The best and prettiest $3 deal I've seen!!! Makes it kinda hard to stay out of the GW, huh? Happy hunting;)


What a deal. Doesn't it just thrill your soul to find a bargain? It sure does mine. I just wish I lived closer to Goodwill stores and bargain shops. :-( oh well when I go to the city I really SHOP.

Hope your having a wonder-filled week Kim.


Alice from Arkansas


Oh my word whatta bargain, good job lady! It is beautiful!

Becky from Tennessee

WOW! It is so pretty, Kim! It amazes me that you
and so many other gals can go to your local thrift
stores and find such great items at terrific prices.
I go to mine and all I find is truly JUNK!! I know
one man's junk is someone elses treasures but I look
high and low on the shelves and still find nothing
that is worth dragging home!!! ;-)

Anyway, what a great find!! The colors are absolutely
perfect for you!


How beautiful and cheerful. It screams SPRING!


Gorgeous find, Kim! I am such a sucker for linens...and plates...and well, so much more...but especially linens. The bedskirt's a beauty!

Jen Edmondson

OMG! THat is SUCH a GREAT find! I must admit, I am a little is darling and I love it next to the leggy yellow bedside table. That reminds me, my bedskirt is in the "to be ironed" pile...ugh! These great photos prompted me to get going on my ironing! THanks!


I LOVE those finds too!!
that reminds me...I meant to write "go thrifting" into my planner this week. :)

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
