When I Grow Up...

...I want to be a Junk Gypsy,
just like
Jolie and Amie Sikes!

Have you seen their new show on HGTV???
Every Saturday night, at 7 pm,
I sit transfixed in front of the TV for a 30 minute glimpse at my dream life!
I'm not stalking them or anything, but I believe we could seriously be BFF's! ha! :)

Junk Gypsies {and Design Star}, are about the only shows I watch on HGTV anymore.
I mean, seriously...
how many hours can you possibly watch "Love It or List It" and HOUSE HUNTERS????

geeeesshhh...that gets a little monotonous! ha!

Anyhow, off of my HGTV soapbox,
and back to Junk Gypsies...

Amie and Jolie hail from Texas,
and started their career of junkin' with meager funds.
How inspiring considering the success this talented and super cute sister duo now share.

To truly make a good career of doing something you love, how awesome is that?!?  :)

Maybe some of you have been fortunate to shop in their junkin' booths at antique shows.

I'm impressed at the cool junk they find!
Junkin' heaven, I'm telling you!

And if you watch the show,
you can witness them transform ordinary junk into one-of-a-kind masterpieces!

On their show, they transform rooms,
but how about hosting a wedding reception for
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton!

I'll say it again, the girls are living my life! ha! :)

For the Shelton's reception,
they also set up a VIP lounge in an Airstream Camper...

...of course, decorated with cool junkin' finds!

in the meantime, I suppose I'll stick to my little 8x10 booth
at the local Antique Mall -- dabbling in my junk!

...and practice the Sikes Sister's saying...
"Hush Honey, this is good stuff!" 
I'm country southern, so I already have the accent down!

...besides, it's not all about the fame, it's all about the fun of junkin'! :)

  1. I haven't seen their show, but love what I am seeing. One thing for sure, junkin sure is fun, even if were not famous :)

  2. I love the junkin' Gypsies too! Great pictures you shared.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the nice comments about my watercolors! I tried to reply but you have the no-reply enabled. Just wanted to make sure that you knew...I didn't I had it enabled when I first started blogging (not that you just started) until someone told me. If people aren't responding to your comments, that's probably why. For some reason Blogger automatically has that enabled so you have to go into settings to change it.
    Have a great week! And, thanks again for the kind words!

  3. Hey Rhonda! Sure did enjoy this post! If I still had satellite, I'd watch this show! Thanks for sharing all the photos and their website! Blessings from Bama!

  4. I love that show...and I wish I could wear clothes like they do....I don't know how they mix and match but they always look cute and shabby!!

  5. Here is a tutorial on changing the no-reply... http://sullivanandmurphy.blogspot.com/2012/03/are-you-no-reply-blogger-make-yourself.html. I hope it helps. Sorry I had to comment on your post to let you know. Feel free to email me if you want me to check it to see if it's working.

  6. I do not have cable, so I did not know about this show?! That is my kind of show! I love a good junk store! I need to find out how to make a living with my "junking!" Life to the full to you!

  7. I've never seen the show, but from what I see here, I'm pretty sure I need to watch it!

  8. I want to be a Junk Gypsy too! I love the show, the girls, the family, just everything. What a fun group they are and I adore their style. I DVR it every week just in case I miss it.

  9. I've never seen this show but then again on Saturday night I'm usually tending the girls and if the TV is on we're watching a Disney movie! I love Property Brothers and Income Property right now. Those guys are sexy through and through! I like Love It or List It too but then again, I've just discovered it! I'm kind of hooked on the new Storage Wars!

    Take care and have a great weekend!

  10. Too cute! I'll have to check out their show. :)

  11. I am so mesmerized by their show! And, I love them as people, too. Gosh, I want a little antique shop booth - that's cool, too! I love those booths.
