~ A Daisy Cottage Secret? Decorating Diva Sisters

Ok so it's not really a secret because if you are a fan of Daisy Cottage you've heard Kim talk about her fabulous sister many times. And it is no secret that the decorating diva gene runs in the family. Jill has sewn and painted many treasures for Kim's house even as busy as she is!

But even though most of you know the fabulous Kim of Daisy Cottage fame, you might have only heard of her adorable and talented sis Jill. Guess what! now you can see more of her talent in her own wonderful home. And it is so much fun. You are in for a treat.

Sometimes I hear someone grumble that they too could do this or that with their homes if they had the time someone else has. Well, Jill has a family, and she went back to school to become a teacher. And she still accomplished all that you see by redoing, painting, creating and much more to make a house a home.

I have been in many houses that the owner would say something like would never guess where I shop. Um... yes, I could. But there is a huge difference in walking into Kim or Jill's homes. Sure they frequent thrifty haunts, but their homes are full of charm as if they found their treasures in boutiques that cater to those who love vintage, lovely or quirky, depending on the mood, or day of the week.

Now some of us, including me, seldom find anything at the GoodWill. So instead I love to shop online. They often pull some of the better items, such as jewelry, art, etc. rom the stores and have online auctions for those items. Did you know that??
Here are a few treasures I found today on

See Y'all Soon!


  1. Thanks for suggesting this! I went over and really enjoyed looking at the pictures of her home.

  2. So funny! I just got done looking at Kim's post about her sister's house! I love how she's so creative and learned how to do things just by doing them!


  3. Hi Donna,

    Thanks for the tip I never thought to look on line !!!

    Yes Kim and her sister are kindred spirits...:) I mentioned on Kim's blog that I thought I remembered Jill having a blog at one time, I remembered those tiles !!

    Have a great day,
    Kathy :)

  4. Hey, Donna, well you know how I feel about thrifty treasures, my home is full of them.

    Loved Kim's story about Jill, those 2 are so cute & talented! Both treasures themselves.

    I completely agree with you about HGTV, where HAVE all the good shows gone?! I rarely watch it anymore, it was so much better 10 years ago.

  5. Thank you for sharing the link. I am amazed at Kim's talent, but now ...a sister who is equally talented? I just wish I had the courage to try to be daring and just go for it be free! You have inspired me.

  6. Hi Donna! Thanks so much for coming by for a visit. I wish there were more places here to find great architectural salvage. It comes around rarely, but I do love it.
    Enjoy the weekend!
