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

Bluebirds and Butterflies

Thank you for the beautiful home tour photos, Kim! So nice to take a little peek at the event for those of us living too far away to attend. I love the cute daisy chandelier! The homeowners did a great job on creating the lovely mantel. Very talented couple and you can see why their home was selected for the tour. The master bedroom, I think, is my favorite space. I know you had a fabulous time hosting this lovely home for the event. Looking forward to future home tours! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day! xoxo Kim


If I could move in tomorrow, I think I might! They could leave everything just as it is...and I'd be in heaven. Thanks for the tour, and thanks Dave and Alice for sharing their lovely home with us.

Carrie Merth

I love how she uses antiques in all her rooms.... and uses them rather than storing them up high just to look at. Just beautiful!!! It has give me the inspiration to get a few of my pretties out of the cupboards and use them.


Elegant, yet friendly and cozy. A truly lovely home.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

What a beautiful home Alice and Dave have, Kim! You have really done them justice with your wonderful pictures. I am so impressed that she made her own mantel. Those poof top drapes are gorgeous; that is one of my favorite designs and I have similar in my master bedroom. Just lovely!


So gorgeous! I love the way you take pictures, you make everything look beautiful :)
Love the home tours. I love to peek inside someone else's home and get ideas for my own :)


A delightfully charming and, yes, elegant home. It's obvious that people with an eye for decorating live there. Thank you so much for taking us along on the tour. I truly enjoyed it.


We do appreciate! What a lovely home. Thank you for posting for us kim!


That is one stunning home. Thank you so much Dave and Alice for allowing us to tour. :)

The color choices are perfect. The yellow and white bedroom, and the peach bath are my faves.

Very charming indeed. I like how a different colour theme was selected for each room.

Alice and Dave for allowing Kim to share your home with us.

G from GA

Kim, what a treat it was to see you at the home tour. You were as gracious as always. Thank you for the pictures of Dave and Alice's house. After seeing so many beautiful homes in one day, it is difficult to keep them separated in my mind. In addition to meeting Dave and Alice, it was also fun to meet Cindy and see her lovely home.

Barbara Anne

How lovely!!!!!!! This is my style, with wonderful colors and a charming mix of furniture.

I have my grandmother's swan neck rocker that is very similar to the one Alice and Dave have. It is so very comfortable.

Thanks to Alice and Dave for sharing their beautiful home and to you Kim for taking us along!



Alice and Dave, your home is lovely, inviting, and very tranquil! Alice, you're an expert with the saw! Gorgeous mantel!

Kim, the artistic use of your lens translates the beauty of Alice and Dave's home. I love the way you captured the sun on the stairway landing and the way the shadow and light reflect on the plants in the kitchen window. The close-up shot showing the pattern on the back of the chair in front of the mantel is beautiful! I absolutely love home tours! Kim, with your artistic eye,and expert use of the camera, you make the photos even more captivating!

Thanks for sharing part of the home tour with us. Will you be showing us more?

Barbara F.

Oh Kim....can't think of anyone else at the moment who could capture every nuance of this lovely charming home. This is a post that you need to revisit just in case you missed something. Love the yellow and white bedroom, my guest room is the same color. And the lavender one, that's my bedroom color and the hall vanity? Wow. I enjoyed my home tour at breakfast this morning. Thanks for sharing. xoxoxo


Alice and Dave's home is lovely--charming at every turn. Thank you, Kim, for providing such a nice tour for us in Blogland. Your photos captured their home beautifully.


Thanks so much for sharing! There was just too much to list that I loved in their house. Spring Break here, have 12 year old grandson with me. Love from Okla, Cindy

Alexia Hungerford

Alice and Dave have such a lovely, enchanting home. I can just imagine myself curled up in one of their comfy chairs with a book and a cup of coffee. :)

Thank you for sharing!

Terri Morse

Kim, your wonderful photo shoot really gives a sense of the elegance and grace of Alice and Dave's home. Thank you for sharing their beautiful home with us. I always love your home tours! Hugs, Terri

Cottage Touch

Wow, amazing photos. Such a beautiful house. I would love to enjoy a glass of wine in her living room listening to some good music and soak in the beauty.

Diane (Vruwink) Carlson

What a beautiful home!!! Thanks so much for giving us a tour! I am wondering if your friend would mind telling you what the paint color is in her living room? The fire place is white-white, and the walls are just slightly creamier, and that is the color I am looking for!!! I would be ever so grateful!!!

I always love visiting your blog - love the color and the vision!!!

Hugs from Michigan - Diane

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
