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

Absolutely stunning! Oh, how I wish I could grow beautiful flowers like that in the hot Texas panhandle! Thanks for the garden tour. Jana in Texas


Love the blue mirror next to the blue color of the violets!
Great place to be, I can imagine.

I would love to be sitting in this amazing garden drinking my coffee this morning. Sigh.


Beautiful! The touches of blue tucked here and there make my heart go pitter patter. Thanks for sharing.


Time away and spent with a sister and dear friends sounds heavenly. Thank you for sharing this beautiful garden with us.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expression

Isn't that blue so gorgeous! I'm still dreaming of flowers and beautiful gardens, as we are still cold here.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home and Lavender Hill Studio

So beautiful Kim! I love Savannah and we go there a few times a year. Last time was this past November. Love the Paris Market....have you ever eaten at The Pink House? My favorite fancy restaurant there.

Barbara Anne

What richly serene gardens!

I love the touches of the many shades of blue. My hat is off to someone who can stand before the array of colorful pansies and still choose only the blues. I usually choose one of almost every color and regret the colors I leave behind. The look is more riotous.

Thanks for taking us along!



So lovely. I love Savannah! My husband proposed to me there.

Julie Harward

Beautiful pictures indeed and I just want to sit in that first picture and soak up the warm sun...I am so tired of the cold! :D


that's it! The hubby and I are going this year! :) Thank you for sharing Kim! I can't wait to see the next post!

Kathy :)

So pretty, Kim your pics are sooooo pretty...

Kathy :)


Wow, thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures. I can't wait for the warmer weather when I can have some flowers to enjoy...until then I can dream with your photos! Can't wait for your Paris Market post. How fun!

Jan, Adventures in Southern Junkin' and Antiques

Thanks for sharing! Ahhh, the lovely colors found in this garden makes you want to sit and stay a spell!!

linda moczan

ooooh how breathtaking! :)
so glad you had "sister time together" to share
such a wonderful time together.


Heavenly! The wisteria is blooming here, too. I am in love with it in front of that gorgeous mirror.

Thanks, Kim.♥


Glad your back Kim. You have been missed. What lovely pictures. I just love all of God's beautiful creation and the way you display gives it an extra touch.

Sorry you couldn't take inside pictures. I know it was just as lovely inside and it is out.

Alice from Arkansas

Teacup Lane

Wow...what a lovely garden! During our tour of Alaska last summer I was amazed at all the beautiful flowers blooming up there in gardens, containers etc.


Great pics! Yes, let's please visit the Paris Market next! And any other recommendations you have because we are headed there for our annual visit and stay in our apt. on Jones Street! LOVE Savannah!!!!
xo, mary

Stephanie C.

So lovely! wish I could have been there too!


Sigh :) Another time, another era. I miss the old days, yeah, they were better. Thank you for the wonderful memories of those old days. Blessings, Janet

Oh, Kim, how your photos made my heart skip a beat. The fish pond, the mirror...all so very beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing these today. I am so very ready for Spring!

Beautiful Savannah...

My Blessed Serendipity Life

Beautiful! Periwinkle is one of my favorite colors. I love that mirror painted in that color. Oh those flowers. I can't wait to plant some flowers! Hope you are having a happy day!



Wow, what a beautiful place to visit or live. Thank you so much for sharing. We finally have sunshine and warm days this week. Love the beautiful weather and the flowers and plants outside and being outside. It is nice to hear from you on this most beautiful day and to see such beauty. You have a way to make all days happy. So grateful for you. Have a wonderful day.


Oh Kim ~ it is absolutely breath taking. I could spend the rest of my life in a serene place like that ;-)

Terri Morse

Welcome back, Kim! I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. The gardens are lovely. Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph and share them with us! This just makes me more anxious to go on vacation. It looks like we'll finally make it back to Maine this year. My shutter finger is just itching to start snapping pictures. Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Terri


Oh, I'm loving all the blue! I think I'll do that color scheme in my garden next spring. Finding blue flowers for summer would be more difficult, so I'll stick with the pinks for later in the year.

Too bad you don't have access to spy cameras like on Get Smart! They look like reading glasses, but they are really cameras!!! LOL!


So charming and pretty. Savannah is gorgeous.


Oh my goodness, just gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing! Know you ladies had a blast! Love from OK cindy


Hey glad you are back. My husband and I were just in Savannah in September for our anniversary. It was our first time to be there and we loved it. I do wish we would have found Paris Market and the Pink House. I took pictures but of course I am not the photographer you are and never seem to capture the beauty as you do. We spent most of our time walking around Market Street, dining at a few local restuarants, taking lots of pictures and we did take a few tours. It was a very long drive all the way from Oklahoma but we loved the visit and I am so happy I got to finally see beautiful Savannah.

DarLinda Adams

I loved all the accents of blue in the garden. Most people go for green but I think blue is best because it contrasts and really pops! Not to mention my favorite color is blue! What a lovely trip!

A homespun year

Gorgeous inspiring. I love how they've arranged everything, with lovely places to sit and admire the flowers...just beautiful!


i had to take a double take on your photo's - just wonderfully beautiful as always, thanks for taking me on your getaway- i felt so at peace just going over and over again and enjoying what God has given us to enjoy and love - thanks to your photo's we can just do that and take us to another part of the world - thanks so,so much!

love ya, maria - cottage feel -


Yes, sooo lovely...I love the wisteria! And have been thinking of making a wading pool for my little ones. That was really interesting to see.


Absolutely lovely photographs! Oh how I long to visit Savannah again! The blues in the garden are gorgeous! Too bad they wouldn't let you take pics of the garden tour. The sun is shining in Michigan today, but everything is brown. These pictures want to make me garden soon!


Yes it is - simply lovely! And the chaise in the first photo is so like one belonging to my grandparents when I was a girl. Thanks for the memory!


Thanks for sharing these gorgeous photos. with us. Some great ideas for garden decorating. The painted plant stands and pansies all in the same shades are striking.
Good to have a nice break with your sister and friends :)


Did someone say eye candy?!! Oh, yeah. Gorgeous, gorgeous!! Thank you so much, Kim!


Beautiful photos of the gardens. Wish some of those flowers would grow in Maine. Have always wanted to explore Savannah, but have always seemed to be in a hurry when going threw. I love your blog, I love shopping in all the same places you do and have found some wonderful things. Since I have found your blog I go to it everyday to check it out and to see if I've missed anything. I have to pace myself with what I can do daily, but you give me more inspiration to get some of my projects done. Thanks for such wonderful place to come and visit.


Thanks for took me away from the snow still piled in my yard.....can't wait for flower-planting time!


Beautiful pictures, as always, Kim. I adore that blue birdbath!

Lynda Bee

So glad you had a great time. Time a way with a sister and friends is always fun! The flowers are stunning!The pictures are perfect. Thanks for sharing them with us ! I would never leave this garden if it were mine! I would have to give up my day job! Have a great day!


Sigh..........Oh SO pretty...........

Can't wait till things bloom here, hopefully won't be long now!

Thank you, Kim, those pictures are luscious.


I have never seen real Wisteria in bloom, so I appreciate your photos Kim. We still have four foot high snowbanks here and I am soooooooooo envious!


Beautiful pictures of one of my favorite cities. We've been going for several years now. I'm sure we will go again this year. We also spend time at Tybee Island.

I love all the garden pictures.

The wisteria is blooming here, too. I love it.


Your photos are gorgeous as usual! :)

Thank you! :)

I hope to be hitting Savannah and hopefully Charleston as well soon.

I had taken a long hiatus from blogging, but, I have to say, yours is one of the ones I missed the most in my absence. :)

Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, nothing better than a beautiful garden and this one is certainly beautiful. I'm glad that you had a wonderful time isn't it fun getting away with the girls. I love that Blue mirror. Very pretty.... Have a great day!! Hooroo Trish xox ;)

Alexia Hungerford

It's great to have you back, but I'm glad you got to witness something so beautiful. :)

Thank you for sharing the pictures with us! I loved the little pond/wading pool. Absolutely stunning.




All the blue in the garden is unexpected and beautiful. I covet that lounge chair on wheels!

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage

The garden, ponds, and porches are lovely, indeed! And the blue painted pieces are simply gorgeous. What a shame they wouldn't let you take pictures inside. I'm sure it was stunning, as well.

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage


The garden is beautiful, al,most magical looking. I love the accents of blue running through the entire garden, its subtle but also very noticeable. do you have any suggestions on how to manage outdoor furnitures? how to prevent them from rusting?

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 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 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 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!
