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.

Lovely Vintage Linen Lavender Pillows

I am so drawn to vintage linen.  I love the details.  The simple loveliness of the needle work is just so beautiful.  But so often the truly loved linens have stains and holes from past lives and are overlooked.  Since I can't stand to see such beauty go to waste I decided to salvage as much of these linens as possible and since I don't sew well I had to enlist a friend to help me.  And this is what she came up with...

Lovely Lavender Sachets and Pillows.  They are so yummy smelling....
I so love the way they turned out...each one unique...
And the idea that what might have been tossed out due to damage has now found a life again is even better!

I'm new to link parties but hoping to link this to I Love Pretty Little ThingsFunky Junk Interiors and The Answer is Chocolate. Just discovered these lovely blogs!
