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

April 15, 2011



Good morning to you too! I'm 41 today and spending my morning in the dentist chair. Way not fun! Haha. But it's so good to read a special note from a precious person first thing in the morning. And how awesome that Maggie is chipper again. Yay!

Have a beautiful day, Kim. *hugs*

Daisy Cottage




Kinda. I had a lovely long taper of chocolate biscotti, dipped into my coffee in the upstairs kitchen, as DD and I packed the Easter boxes for sending to the GrandChildren.

A togetherness and an accomplishment and an enjoying, all at once.

Ricki Jill Treleaven

Yea, Maggie!!! DId your Mommie make you a good breakfast, too???

Yep, I had an asiago bagel with plain cream cheese.

Now on to mopping our nasty floors ;P

Ricki Jill


i had mini wheats for breakfast too! except mine were of the 'frosted' persuasion. :) then a couple dried apricots!

glad Maggie has pepped up. we are all high and low from time to time aren't we?

have a great weekend!!


had home made toast with my favorite wheat bread recipe, it is snowing.....blah, thanks for the uplift with the sunny photos, bright colors and precious Maggie.

Donna Rae Barrow

What a wonderfully healthy breakfast you have! I grabbed some toast before running out to mow the lawn in the Spring sunshine... now for a snack. So glad Maggie is feeling better. Don't we all have 'those days'?

Have a delightful weekend!

linda moczan

it was a fruit & yogourt special k morning - :)

Barbara Anne

Orange juice, Special K with Lactaid, and coffee. I usually also have a mini bagel with our homemade pear honey jam but am trying to lose some weight so didn't have that today.

Love your interesting hall tree with the colorful array of aprons and books!

Glad Maggie is feeling better and wish I could have corrected yesterday's typo of "Mattie" instead of "Maggie" - sigh!



Oh Kim...I embarrassed to say I had breakfast with a certain Captain of the Crunch dynasty. All that sugar so early in the morning. Now you have me thinking I should have lean chicken and lettuce for lunch...sounds yummy, too. I love seeing your home with stacks here and there. Sometimes when I look at all the beautiful homes out there I wonder how they train their families not to dump stuff on the kitchen table or counter as they walk in the door. btw...even your stacks are gorgeous! You and Maggie have a wonderful too, Marley. I posted a picture of my little Bear in the garden today and I though of dear Maggie and Marley out in the sunshine.

Terri Morse

I had granola and yogurt this morning-rather late morning. It's looking to be a beautiful day here in Pennsylvania. I can see the sun is shining for you too. I'm glad to see that sweet Maggie is perking up. I'll be spending the day going through all the pictures I took at a quilt museum yesterday...but the drawing table is calling...and my garden is begging me to pay attention to it. What's a person to do? Have a wonderful weekend, Kim! Hugs, Terri

Melesa Garrison

We are celebrating at work today because I work for a CPA firm and it is the 15th (Oh, Glorious Day!) We had a breakfast casserole, two devine mexican dips with tortilla chips, fresh fruit and yummy fruit dip, apple cobler and chocolate cake. No, I did not eat all of it and NO I did not have lunch!

I'm glad Mags is feeling better...she would be in the dumps here because we are having a yucky dirt storm with winds at 65 miles an hr :( Please keep everybody in your prayers with the grass fires and drought that so many states are suffering with at this time.

God Bless and have a great weekend ;-)


I don't ever have cereals for breakfast. Always two slices of bread with..... and a cup of coffee! On Sunday we cook eggs,make some breadrolls and croissants in the oven or have some slices of a raisin bread or sugar bread. And always a cup of coffee.... or two... Mmmmm, looking forward to Sunday morning!
Have a nice and sunny weekend Kim xxx Nina.

And to Jen: Happy Birthday and best wishes, especially because you went to the dentist today!


Tuffy and Smokey and I share a bowl of dry frosted mini wheats. I take a bite and give them the other half and they love it. It is a morning ritual and they remind me when it is time for our frosted mini wheats - just dry, thank you (I love it and snack on it all day! :)

A homespun year

Muesli, yoghurt and grapes for breakfast. That sounds very healthy, doesn't it? I won't mention the date and walnut cake with cream I had during lunch with a's a Friday treat!

Bess at Fixing My Thoughts

Toast with PB, and OJ. Ah, that little Maggie is a doll no matter what mood she's in! Kim, I've included photos (not very good ones!) of my kitties in my latest post, should you care to check them out (don't tell Maggie!). Bess

Glad to hear Maggie is feeling better. I ate homemade granola with skim milk and drank a cup of coffee, of course! Have a great weekend, Donna

Barbara F.

I skipped breakfast as I was busy making tuna, shrimp, and egg salad and cucumber sandwiches for a luncheon I was having today, that needed to be "meatless" - then I baked scones served with raspberry jam and devonshire cream so it turned out to be a tea party! More than made up at lunch for missing breakfast :-) xo,

Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, It was corn flakes, a hot cross bun, a cup of tea but boy what I'd give for that banana since the floods here the Bananas are around $14 a kilo I miss them sooooo much. I am so glad that Maggie is feeling better, have a great weekend. Trish <3 <3 <3 ;)

Lisa Adams

We had eggs from our backyard chickens and toast. It was delish!!!

My husband even let me sleep in today. It's been wonderful.

Thanks for asking. Hope you are having a nice day as well.


Rose Eliff

Oh, I wasn't nearly as healthy as you, unfortunately. Glad to hear Maggie's perking up. Guess what, Kim? I'm getting a dog! She's a sweet little Maltese rescue and a real love.


Love your pictures and precious aprons! Maggie looks like she's in dreamland. She is so very darling! Just want to sit in a rocking chair and hold her, petting her and talk to her about past memories of my collie dog I had growing up and the adventures we used to go on walking down through the pastures. Love from OK, Cindy

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
