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 18, 2011



Good morning Kim~! Thank you for that sunshine ~ It's gloomy here in Ontario and it is snowing ~ I needed that little ray of sunshine this morning ;-)




Thanks for the sunshine Kim! It's snowing here in Michigan! Gloomy and cold.


Sunny rays seem to be coming around in gentle waves today---ours unexpected during this week of projected DREAR every single day.

So Today---I enjoyed it, beginning about six a.m., upstairs where the beams began peeking through the sheers. I invited everyone to join me, too. And I think your addition of John Denver is a splendid accompaniment to the gold of the sun.


KIm, there is no sunshine here in Michigan. I am sitting here looking at the snow falling, and more to come...sigh...and it is cooooold..brrr!

linda moczan

ohhh - the john denver days ~ poems , prayers. and promices aside from sunshine on my shoulders!
what a wonderful way to start the day!
wishing you a sunny day ~ :)

Ricki Jill Treleaven's a good thing! ;P

Have a sunny day, Kim! You're the best!

~Ricki Jill

Ah, a favorite song, although sunshine often makes me sneeze. Go figure. I wasn't finished with John Denver but I have several of his albums and tapes. Sigh!

Happy sunshine to you!



Oh I just love that song- haven't heard it in forever. Going to go put on Denver's Greatest Hits right now!

Have a blessed Holy Week, Kim!

sweet cottage dreams

Hi Kim,
Me too! Sun shine makes me smile..
and we had the most beautiful sunshine this past weekend in my little town of Modesto Ca.
I love John Denver, we took our girls to see John Denver for their first concert, and they still remember it and still sings along to his songs even now. John Denver had a life well lived but all to short.
Have a sweet day and big hugs for you,Elizabeth


Oh! I love that John Denver song.
And his sweet story telling style of music. Jim Croce was another favorite of mine. Their lives were taken far too soon. But we'll have their music till the end of time.
It is a beautiful sunny day today Kim, Don't you just love Spring?

Wonderful! I needed that sun. Snowing here...but just a little. :0)

My Blessed Serendipity Life

The sun is shining brightly today here as well. Here in the pacific northwest we never take the sunshine for granted, it is in fact CELEBRATED.



Such beautiful photos!
Thank you!!

Carol Adams

Love that.. Love you, Kim!
Thanks so much for sharing that beautiful song!


How lucky are we to live in sunny Florida!!!
Enjoy the day.


Love the sunshine filling all your rooms! There's sunshine on my perwinkles today! Cindy OK


I love it! My family get togethers are always full of guitar playing and singing. We sing a lot of classic rock and folk. This has been one of the staple songs in our get togethers for as long as I can remember :) Makes me think of summer nights around a bonfire singing with my family ...makes me smile :D


Each day when I get to read your blog puts some sunshine in my day. You are the best Kim. Have a wonderful day.


I hope that everyday you know how much of that sunshine that you share with us and how very much it is appreciated!


Thank you for the sunshine! I do so love popping in and seeing what bit of inspiration and beauty you have to share!


What a beautiful post from a beautiful lady!!! Happy Monday!


You are so right: Sunshine on the water is lovely! I always think this as I take my coffee down to the dock and watch nature unfold before my eyes. How blessed I feel. Thanks Kim for reminding me.


Kim, I'm sure a lot of your readers would like to say to you that "You are my sunshine, you are my sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray, please don't take my sunshine away." I agree with Beth above, that we are lucky to live in Florida. (Even though my local newspaper says we're in the worst drought in 80 years)

Terri Morse

I have always loved John Denver. Remembering him always tugs at my heart...he was a sensitive soul who left us far too soon. His music always lifts me up. Hugs, Terri

Bluebirds and Butterflies

Hi Kim,
Didn't John Denver give us some great songs? I miss him and his wonderful songs. I have a song posted on my blog playlist called "For You" that he did. It is a very romantic song. I am hoping my son and future daughter-in-law will play that song at their wedding. Thanks for posting the words of the song today---sunshine lifts our spirit so much! Of course, I love your bluebird with the light shining on it at the end, too! Have a fabulous day today, and hope you get lots of "sunshine on your shoulder" today! xoxo Kim

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 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
