Jill Ruth & Co.

Not long after we opened the shop we'd heard lots of lovely compliments about Jill and her wonderful designs.  And as life happens, time went by and we hadn't had the opportunity to get in touch with her about getting some of her goodies in the shop, until last week.

Jill invited us out to her farmhouse.  It was amazing to see all of her designs.  I hadn't realized I'd been following her blog for a while until I saw her deconstructed tree in her front hall. I've been drooling over Jill's "Junk"le  Bells posts and her one of a kind ornaments for a while now.  And I have to say they were just as beautiful in person as they were on her blog!  I could've oogled her tree for hours but there were too many other things to see!

These trees are adorable!  Made from feedsacks, burlap, vintage spools and jewelry...

And I love this one too!  My picture doesn't do this justice...the detail is lovely!

These tassel ornaments are perfect on a tree or to top a package...

Sweet mini banner adorned with vintage buttons.

Garland made with vintage Christmas bulbs.

Pocket pillows and key garland.

And as if Jill couldn't get any more creative she also is an amazing photographer.  So I had to put together a little vignette of some of her goodies and the cherry on top as or in this case the rosette on top of the tree...

Was getting to see the amazing room full of inspiration where Jill creates.  There was so much to see,  with every scan of the room I saw something drool worthy.  And silly me...I forgot my camera so I have no pictures to share but she has a post on her blog so check it out at Jill Ruth & Co.   

We had such a lovely day visiting with Jill.  As we left I couldn't help but be inspired by her creativity.


  1. I can't wait to get to visit your shop someday. My oldest girls will probably get there first. I look forward to you two coming out again! Thank you for your kind words.
