Dear Daisy Cottage & Imagery by Kimberly

Years ago, during my first days of blog reading, I stumbled upon the
charming blog,  Dear Daisy Cottage.  The adorable yellow cottage was
home to it's owner and blog writer, Kimberly McCole.  Every inch of
this charming cottage is decorated with many thrift store finds and 
painted in cheerful colors to match Kim's sunny personality.

Upon entering the cottage, the reader finds herself surrounded by
color and Kim's fabulous sense of whimsey.  

Of course I was immediately smitten because I love color and admire those
who are not afraid to use it.  But aside from the free spirited cottage decor,
Kim made one feel like they had just stopped by for a cup of tea or coffee 
and were welcomed not just as a visitor, but as a friend.  Sometimes one
would meet her over a bowl of morning cereal, or to discuss the simple
pleasures of caring for a cottage that is so well loved.

For me, and for many others, a visit to Kim's Daisy Cottage was like
a welcoming ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.

Kim's photography was always stunning and eventually her heart 
began to wonder down a new path.  She started to include more of her
beautiful nature photographs into her blog themes, and soon discovered
that her next calling would be there.

She began another blog, devoted to her beautiful images.  You can 
visit her HERE.  Kimberly is also selling some of her charming
photos at her etsy shop.  You can visit that shop by clicking

And ~ Kimberly has an adorable dollhouse that reflects Daisy Cottage
in miniature.  It is adorable and you can see it on my miniature
blog and you may see it now by heading over to

I want to thank Kimberly for allowing me to share photos
of her beautiful world with all my readers.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
