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

LOL In that second picture..she does look so dramatic! I think I can understand how she feels..been there, done that. Although sitting in that pretty chair should cheer her up a bit! ;D


Ah...this is so like my longhair - Violet..she has taken to getting up and sleeping on the sofa way from the shorthairs. Those darn shorthairs! She's too good for them. She always has been but just lately...she wants to be away from them. She's in her own little world.


Sweet girl she just wants a doggie treat and to play ball. Hey us girls get chocolate or ice cream when we have a crises. :)


such luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! enjoyable!!!!!
love your photos and house!
take care,

linda moczan

well miss maggie - you look quite beautiful sitting in your mama's new chair! things will get better for you - i promice!

Bluebirds and Butterflies

You are so cute! Everyone has their moments in life. Just remember that with enough love and support, we can get through anything. Sometimes, we just need a pat on the head and a big hug. I know you are loved...and here is a big (((hug))) for you! Your mommy is right, everything always looks better in the morning. I know you will be out chasing those lizards again very soon! xoxo Kim


Miss Maggie ~ it's really o.k. ~ we all go through the mid life crisis. Mommy will be there for you (((Hugs)))

Barbara Anne

Awwwwwwwww! I think Maggie needs you to sit beside her for a while, talk, and pet her.

See how shiny Mattie's coat is? Our vet told us years ago that you can tell how much a pet is loved because the hand oil from petting them adds real shine to their coats. Maggie is well loved!



Bless her little heart!!! No worries..... I'm sure the sun is shining at Daisy Cottage this morning!!! Mom.... maybe a lizard or two would help???? lol, Terri :)


Hopefully Maggie will feel a bit more cheer today --- we all have our days.

Barbara F.

Oh poor Miss Maggie, we girls do have a rough go of it sometimes! I;m sure a treat will help a little bit! xo,

G from GA

Maggie definitely has something weighing on her mind. Hope she gets it figured out soon so she can go back to her cheerful self. Don't we all go through times like this?


Oh, Miss Maggie everything will be okay. You look so comfy in your moms new chair. Nap awhile and you'll feel like brand new when you wake up! Your mom loves you so much...she just might take you outside so you can chase lizards! I know that will make you happy! Sometimes we just need a little nap to make everything better. I could use one right now!


Aw sweet Maggie you should come to the North Forty and stay with me a while there is lots of Sunshine here.
One question though Would you get a long with a lazy, fat cat named Tinkerbell?
Cheer up
Tell Mommy hello for me

Maggie has so much personality. That first photo could be used on a romance novel.

Carol Adams

Awwww... Give Ms. M a gentle chin scratch from me..
And yes, things WILL be better tomorrow...
Sometimes we all just need to "hang", feel the feelings, release them and then move on..
Hello to Mama Kim, too!!!
Hugs to both!!


Please give Maggie a hug from me :-)

Melesa Garrison

Poor girl is definitely down in the dumps, but for the life of me, I don't know why??? That chair looks like nap territory to me! Just love that baby up, Kim!

Don't worry Maggie. You'll catch that lizard some day! It will give you a whole new lease on life. Hugs, Terri

Oh, I love coming over to see Maggie. I want to kiss her adorable little pouting snout.


But she does have a cute, cheerful chair to lay in while she thinks! :) Hope it's a better day soon.

An Enchanted Cottage

Kim, Maggie is just the sweetest doggie! I love your Maggie posts! I just posted about spring arriving in New England - FINALLY - and our kitty was the star of that post. They do work their way into every part of our lives, don't they? And we wouldn't have it any other way!... Donna

Mary Moore

Dearest Kim,
Just stopped by to say HI! Love looking at your blog each day. You are an inspiration to me. Hugs!!!


Oh Maggie, poor girl, she just needs some extra cuddles i guess. My Daisy gets like that, but she's coming up to 4, still a drama queen though. I hope Maggie feels better.

kim sills

When BoBo gets like that I kiss him on the nose and hold him, and he smacks his little lips and says more please.They are so cute when they do that.I hop Maggie gets to feeling better it may be the springtime pollen and the weather.Love the beautiful colors and your inspiring posts.

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
