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 unprepared for the Super Bowl. My daughter has make-up riding lessons after church because we have had so much rain and ice lately. I don't even know when the game starts, but I know DH will want to watch it......and he'll want snacks......Thanks for the reminder, Kim!


I am making Beef Stew...Yummy perfect for the super bowl and the weather we are having. have a wonderful Sunday.



Good Morning, Kim,
That is a pretty cute bowl! We are invited out to a friends house. Kari is making pulled beef sandwiches. We all are to bring munchies. I plan to make this spicey, sweet popcorn mix that everyone loves...perhaps I will post the recipe and take pics while I am making it!

Take care ~Natalie

Your super bowl is my kind of "super bowl". My family is not into sports. My menu for today... sloppy joes.

Four Sisters In A Cottage

Hubby working at the Fire Department....nice quiet day at home with my Maddi girl and will watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. Of course we will order out for pizza!!!
Hugs, Amy


Well my town is all geared up! ( I am in Wisconsin ) I think your house is a beautiful packer color!! Lol I am sitting in the parking lot of our local grocery store... It's packed!!!
I sent him in to get what ever he wants !
It's pouring snow, and I am looking forward to a day by the fire!!!
Go packers!!! :)


The chili is in the crock pot already! We have a snowy Sunday. The weather channel says expect a slushy inch. I think they should check out the forcast. We already have several inches of snow. My poor Maggie Mae is already up to her tummy in the snow!

Can't say enough how much I enjoy your sweet blog and the wonderful pictures!


I love your bowl, Kim. I am not a football fan, well unless it is one of our teams and even then, I do not understand the game but have a team to root for. Today is chicken shish kabobs for me and wings and chips and dip for my hubby and son. I will enjoy some of the commercials and go out back with my cat and enjoy some of this sun and warmth, though still pretty windy here. How I long for the coast and the beach as it is perfect weather along the coast and Bay Area. Have a great day. Darlene

I sat down at my computer with such a sad heart today looking for some comfort from some of your wonderful music and pictures. I just giggled right out loud when I saw your Super Bowl!!! Thank you so much for that. : ) And YES, it is a super bowl ;)

And to you, as well, Sweetpea!!

We're doing fried chicken livers, baked spaghetti, garlic bread and a lovely sweet Asian slaw with sesame dressing. Nobody here watches football and so we'll probably just BE for the afternoon and evening, and maybe watch some of those flea market movies we've been meaning to get around to.

Still iced in, and cozying up with candlelight and music right now, though it's early afternoon.

It's soup and salad tonight. I made my dear vegetarian daughter some cream of broccoli and chicken noodle for the rest of us. We aren't sports fans but may check out the game or commercials if we think of it.

Carol Adams

I love your lil white and blue "super bowl". Darling!
Just hubs and I quietly enjoying the Sunday afternoon.
No big plans..

One Heart

My dear husband is doing all the cooking today. :) Chicken wings and salsa/bean dip. Smells great but the look of my kitchen screams for mercy. ;) Enjoy your Super Sunday.


Hi Kim,
I seldom comment (I'm one of your lurkers I guess) ~ but I visit regularly. Love your blog! Today's post made me "laugh out loud happy" and I wanted to let you know!
I also wanted my blog visitors to know as well ~ so I linked to you today.

Have a "super" day!

Debbie from Texas

Just regular food for us. I am the only one that likes to watch the Super Bowl! It is a beautiful day today with lots of sunshine.
Hope you have a special day today!

Barbara F.

Just me and the feathered babies today, heart is not really in to the Bowl today, if the Jets had clinched it, well, that would have called for a party and perhaps some face painting!!! I am in a pool so I'll tune in and I like the commercials.

Sandi ~ A Cottage Muse

My honey has it all under control...chilli is simmering on the stove and he is going to make his lemon~garlic chicken wings. All calorie free on a super Sunday!


That IS a super bowl.

We are having Tex-Mex since the game is in Texas. Taquitos, fresh pica de gallo, stuffed jalapenos, guacamole and chips. The only thing missing will be the margaritas, but I have to work in the morning.

Have a great day, Kim! La


I like your Super Bowl, everything that a super bowl should be. Your blog gives me so much inspiration. When I'm sad I can come and listen to your music and when I need a laugh you are always there. Hope you have a wonderful super Sunday, sweet Kim.

Darling pictures! My dear hubby is watching it, while I'm reading in the other chair, as soon as I get off the computer. Hope your Sunday was enjoyable too! Cindy Okla

Hi Kim! I like your idea of a super bowl. I'm a football fan and will definitely be watching the game this evening BUT it would have been so nice to have my Denver Broncos in the big game. Maybe next year! Right? Hope your Sunday has been a good one. Jana


ahhh, two meals cooked, two church services finished, and about to sit down to a SUPER bowl of homemade beef stew for supper. . .i like your blue and white SUPER. :)

Susan Freeman

Stephanie Laura Murray

*giggle* that's cute...and it's what I think of when I think of the super bowel :) My hubby is from Pittsburgh, so my house was mayhem last night! We had yummy hot wings for dinner! I may not be into football too much, but I love the food we eat when we watch!
I don't know if I've ever told you, but I just LOVE the fabric on the chairs in your living's gorgeous

We had burgers, chips, and fruit salad with peanuts, popcorn, and Chex mix to snack on.

Will have to check out Patty's "Jordan Rolls" as I love bread!

Thank You Dear Sis!

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!

  • "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!

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
