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

Hi Kim. I wish I could go on the tour. I did the 09/01/09 tour of Cindy's home this morning via your blog, which I enjoy very much. I live in Western New York State and it is cold, windy & snowy today. This week-end I will be attending an antique show in Geneseo. Enjoy your week-end.;-)))


Have fun at the home tour, Kim! If I still lived in Central Florida, I would be there, too! I adore home tours and used to go on many. Love your little "bless this home" plaque. Have a fabulous weekend. Love ya, Kim


I will be watching to see when you post your beautiful pictures of the house tour! They are always so inspirational! Have a good time!

Debbie Masters

OH, Have a wonderful time! We have been under the weather here at our poisoning from a local jaunt! Won't be going there for a long, very long time! Looking forward to just a couple of sunshine filled days!!! Debbie


Love your little sign. Have fun at the home tour, you will be so good at that. This weekend will start getting my flower beds ready for planting. Love from Okla, Cindy

Judy A

Have fun! Looking forward to your wonderful photos of the beautiful homes there.



have fun touring and would love to view the photo's - we'll be staying low this weekend and enjoying the garden and perhaps a warm cozy fire outside by our fireplace and finishing up our son's room, we're installing a ceiliing fan.

love ya, maria - cottage feel -

Susan Freeman

Hi Kim!
My plans are to fully recover from the bug that I have. Reading my favorite blogs, especially yours, is just what the doctor ordered! Have a wonderful weekend and see you on Monday!!

Kim enjoy the home tour ~ it sounds like such fun~ This weekend I am going to fluff, fluff, fluff and fluff ~ time to bring a little spring into the nest ;-)


Have a wonderful time at the home tour - I "toured" Cindy's home via your blog -- gorgeous!! Look forward to seeing what's she's changed -- you will be posting pictures, won't you?

We're in the process of making a move -- going back to the small town we came from -- thought we'd like bigger city living, but don't!!!! Lots of work but also lots of fun -- a new house to decorate, and a new yard to landscape.

Have a wonderful weekend --


Alexia Hungerford

I hung out at a coffee shop with a friend I hadn't seen since high school (3 years), and today I'm doing an all-day stitch (I do cross-stitch) at a local needlepoint and cross-stitch shop.

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Chris Godfrey

Kim, it was so nice to meet you on the home tour today. Here's a link to my bedroom on RMS.
It was a wonderful tour!

Have a great weekend Kim, I will be on babysitting duties for my cousins 3 Children while Mum and Dad attend a wedding in Queensland. I pray for lots of sunshine for your home tours. Hooroo!!! Trish xox ;)

Tins and Treasures

Good evening, Kim,
You can see I'm a little behind on the computer too...I hope you enjoyed the home tour and I'm looking forward to any photos that you share.

As for me? The 3rd term ended at school, so I have spent my day correcting final projects. Also...our new refrigerator was delivered...and that consumed a good part of my time on Friday, cleaning out the old one, etc. Anyway, you are welcome to stop will have to scroll down a bit to see my make-shift refrigerator!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ~Natalie


Hi Kim,
I haven't left a comment in a long time and I apologize! I look to your blog for the lovely pictures of your home and your sweet furkids. Just want you to know I appreciate your blog and the effort that goes into it.


This weekend I went on a quilt guild bus trip (with the ladies) to Mt. Dora and their special old shops and their beautiful lake. Then Sat. on to Trenton FL quilt show (held outside, like Sisters OR). Wonderful show, old cars and talented young ladies doing an Irish dance. The quilt shops there and along the way were awesome. Blessings, Janet


Cleaning house! That's ok - it needs it badly.


Adore Maggie!! Want to kiss her neck a thousand times! She is adorable. Love this blog, Kim. Thank you.

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
