hello LA.

January 10, 2012

we’re back on southern soil. back from our little rendezvous on the west coast…

here’s a bit about our travels…as captured from my iphone…

{just landed at LAX}

 first things first. a visit to rachel ashwell’s original store on montana street…

{a little piece of fluffy heaven at rachel ashwell shabby chic couture}

{heaven, is that you? feathered chandelier at rachel’s store}

we had a wild & rowdy shabby chic/junk gypsy slumber party at rachel ashwell’s famous house…and i had not ONE, but TWO proper cups of english-style tea!

and then it was time to get to work for HGTV! look out world, junk is comin to town!

{we felt so officially tv-ish with the presence of the clapper thing!}

they even built a ‘junk store’ set for us! and yes, you do see a crock pot on a pedestal. HGTV did that just for us. 🙂 classssssy.

{because junk is a girls best friend}

on set with the property brothers

{jonathon & drew scott. aka: the property brothers (and yes, drew is holding an orange burlesque-style feather fan..look out girls!)}

…who are currently shooting in austin and therefore, ended up beside us on the plane ride home.
we felt it our responsibility to ‘texas-ify’ these canadian boys on the plane ride…and never fear y’all,
they now know all about the proper place to put a cowboy hat when you walk in a room,
the importance of really great tex-mex & the absolute necessity of adding avocados & jalapenos to EVERY meal,
and exactly how to inject the word “y’all” into almost every sentence.
just kidding…we skipped the texas 101 but we did make fast friends and had great shop talk all the way to austin.
in the end, we had a great trip to LA…we ate falafel,
drank coffee out of cups with no handles (read here),
& power-walked with rachel (yes, amie thought she was dyinggggg..almost had to call 911).
and then it was time to head back home…

{texas, here we come}

our first sign we were back in texas…

{friendly cowboys. GoD bless TeXAS}

and back in gypsyville…

{hello, home}

annnnnd….the BIG, awesome news on the homefront…
the WALLS are going up on the future first-EvER junk gypsy store!!!

{progress!! corrugated tin salvaged from a texas harbor}

we are sooooo seriously excited about our store…JuNK gypsy finally has a HOME.
we hope to be open late spring 2012 but we’ll keep ya posted as we know more.
after over 10 years, our little company is puttin down roots…
but don’t worry y’all, we were born 2 roam and another roadtrip is just around the corner!

    My eye spyed that Massey-Harris sign on the side of that little garage-barn on your new property-I have to say my Mom would flip out over that sign. She always talks about the Massey Harris tractor she drove with my grandpa. If you ever come across another one or something similar-please give me a hollar, you know where I’m at every Spring & Fall-ZApp Hall! I’d love to give her one. Love all that is coming together for you all. Safe travels gypsy sisters!
    Hugs, Tricia S.

    Really Happy for you “Gals” congratulations!

  • Reply Debbie York January 11, 2012 at 7:22 am

    I keep hearing the theme from Rawhide in the sound track of my mind every time I read y’alls latest adventure. In fact…you might consider adding roller skate wheels to the bottom of your boots the way y’all get around! Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’…love it…and y’all.
    P.S. Let’s see if we can Texasify and Gypsify the world…one convert at a time! Insert evil laught here.

    • Reply Jolie January 11, 2012 at 9:23 am

      roller skates on our boots?! good gracious sista, if we did that we’d have to add “cast and crutches” to our accessories…hmmmm…on second thought, a cast would be something else we could decorate…..

  • Reply Debbie York January 11, 2012 at 7:24 am

    *my bad….make that “laugh”. Dang these nails.

    I am a central Texas girl who currently lives in Newfoundland & I love, love, love those Scott boys! They are super cute!
