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

Wow! I always amazes me how you can find upholstered pieces that fit right in with your aesthetic. No recovering needed. Super cute chair.


Oh it is so DAISY COTTAGE! Love it for you, whoo hoo and what is best is you are giving it another life of love.

Great find, lady.


It looks so comfortable. We have one like that, but in a putrid green, and we paid $25. But it is so comfy to curl up and read a book. We put in in the back guest room by a window that gets afternoon sun. Enjoy, Kim.

Shannon Olson

you know...I think I will always look at things differently since "meeting" you....What I would have never looked at before looks so amazing in your Daisy Cottage!! How sweet


That chair was just made for you, Kim.

Donna Rae Barrow

What a comfy, sunny spot to rest with a cup of tea! Enjoy

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

If that chair doesn't say "Kim", I don't know what does! Great find, Kim, and great price!


Oh how pretty. And a great prise.


It definitely had your name on it! How perfect!

iola faye

I love adore envy you for it. Great buy!!


I have patterns in my kitchen that match that chair... LOVE IT!! and for 20 bucks!? :O wow :)

Linda Evans

I so agree with one of the above comments...that I look at things so differently now, since I found Daisy Cottage. You decorate your home with color, happy color, there is no right or wrong, surrounding yourself with things that make you smile. omg, that chair you found perfect example, how many people would think that is not good enough, or needs to be white or super prim, well I think it is awesome the way it is hard to put into words, but I think your "stly" is perfect in every way!!!!!


HI Kim!

So perfect for your sweet Cottage! I love when you find the "perfect" addition, it makes all the looking around worth while :) It's adorable!!

Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my mini home :) that meant so much to me coming from you, you have always been one of my favorite blogs and when you visit I feel like a star has stopped by! Thank you again!

Much love and happiness always!

Hugs, Cynthia

Pamela Gordon

Such a pretty chair and for only $20. Lucky you! Have a lovely day. Pamela


I love it!!!!!!!!


Great score, Kim!


I've got to go shopping with you....that's exactly I've been looking for. Love it! You scored big girlie.


Barbara F.

That chair had your name all over it, that's for sure! What a great spot to curl up with a good book or favorite magazine, a cup of tea (or coffee ;-)) the doggies napping at your feet, oh you get the picture! xo,

Ricki Jill Treleaven

*score* Will it be Maggie's new throne??? ;P


It's perfect--another touch of sunshine in your home! Love the floral!

Trish Rowley

That one had your name on it Kim well done!! Trish xox ;)

Sandi ~ A Cottage Muse

She was waiting just for you!


Kim, you hit the jackpot! $20.00? It was definitely divine order....your new chair is just right for your "Daisy Cottage" Don't you just love it when you find the perfect piece at bargain prices? The chair is in excellent condition. I agree with the above comments. This chair had your name on it! Synchronicity! Oh by the way...your sister's house is so cool! I saw her on your home tour link. She is an artist too. You too must have some fabulous fun together! Have a beautiful weekend.


You are something else. Your husband must just love you to death because everyday is such an adventure. Love your spirit, your red and yellow everything, and all of your great deals but above all your all inclusive heart!

melesa garrison

I love a good find and you had one. I would have loved to see the smile on your face when you scored this one! Adorable just like yourself ;) Enjoy your comfy chair and have a great Sunday, MG


Just perfect for your cottage! Love a good bargain too.


So adorable and perfect for your cottage! What a find!

Barbara Anne

What a great chair! How did the sellers know what upholstery to choose for your home?!

You do find the best stuff! I keep telling DS1 and his sweetie to go forth and see what's out there because bargains abound.


Jana T

Great find, Kim! It will fit in perfectly at Daisy Cottage!


Kim ~ what a beautiful chair. I can hardly wait for the yard sales to start here ;-)


It certainly has Daisy Cottage written all over it!!!! I love it when you find treasures like that.

Kelly McMaster

I love seeing the fun things you find! I would love to get rid of my sectional sofa I've had for over 20 years but really cannot afford anything new right now. THEN I started thinking of the fabulous things you've found at yard sales and flea markets and feel inspired to do the same! Thanks for sharing!


I am so envious, you just do not find things like this, or if you do, not for this price. You are really blessed. Enjoy your beautiful chair. You deserve it.


Love the chair Kim. It just has Daisy Cottage written all over it. Where is it for now? In the living room or the granny room? Of course I know it wont stay in one place for long, lol. ;)

Your $20 chair is beautiful, yellow roses, my favorite color and a bargain, woohoo!


Love that chair, I lived in Tallahassee, FL for a few years, loved going to lawn sales, miss it so much, we only get a few months a year here. I have found a lot of thrift stores though. You have even opened my eyes wider as to how things can be used. Love your blog so much.

Dena Criswell

You have the best luck at flea markets, garage sales and second hand shops. I am so envious and I love that chair.

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
