Meet Jenn from @DownShilohRoad
our June FM Farmhouse "Jenn Box" Inspiration
We were so excited to have Jenn come on board as an influencer for our March Julia box and even more excited when she agreed to stay on board as our June box inspiration. The June "Jenn" Box. We have always swooned over her feed but getting to know the woman behind those gorgeous squares had us falling for them (and her) even more.
Where Down Shiloh Road Began...
Jenn @downshilohroad lives in Southern Illinois. She and her family moved to their farm when she took a job in their town that required her to move there for the position.
"All I knew is that I wanted to live outside of town where my kids could have room to play!!!"
They found their property in the country, set down a long gravel road all their own, and moved down Shiloh Road. Which as I'm sure you've guessed by now inspired her account name.
"I was inspired to use down Shiloh Road because we basically live on this gravel road all by ourselves. And I thought it would explain all of the fun things that happen here. It's my own little island and the place I love to be most in the world!!!"
Jenn and her Hubby were married five years ago in a hot air balloon (swoon) and have a blended family with five children. When we asked her to tell us about her blended family:
"I have 5 children (3 of my own and two bonus babies given to me by my husband 😁) they are 22, 21, 18, 10 & 9. The oldest and two youngest are girls! "
The inspiration behind her decor
Jenn's gorgeous style was inspired by her Grandmother who handed down her love for plants and vintage collections. It seems that farmhouse living is not only a time honored tradition but also in her very genetics.
“My Mom grew up in a huge Farmhouse with 8 brothers and sisters and I think every time I drove past that house as a child I was in love.”

I was married in a hot air balloon, I'm in love with turquoise jewelry and I love to plan big parties!!!
My black hutch
We have 30 chickens, 1 dog, 1 bunny and a cat
I have 30 chickens but I don't like eggs!! I won't eat pie or biscuits 'n gravy either. I'm a country gal but I love the city atmosphere!!! I seem very extroverted but I need quiet time and get nervous around big crowds. I have major wanderlust!!
Thank you so much Jenn for being such an amazing and inspiring woman, not only with your décor but by being you. We love that you truly care about your followers and take the time to make each one feel like a friend. You are a shining light in our community and the fact that your style is absolutely stunning is only icing on the cake. Your décor may have inspired the June box but you as a person have inspired us.
