the heart of a dreamer. and also, mall bangs.

July 21, 2015

here’s the deal. we remember being a teenager (oh sweet gracious, mom and i especially remember amie being a teenager…and i thank the good Lord above that we all survived those years. seriously. it’s a bit of a miracle.) whew…i digress [as always].

as i was saying, we REMEMBER what it’s like to be a teenager … having a wild independent spirit (some things never change). wanting to be FREE. free to have every big dream in the world. free to be a rockstar. or a cowgirl. or a bohemian. a dreamer. an old soul. or to be a crazy patchwork mix of all of those things. because it’s ok to have a life-size poster of jon bon jovi in your room & one of george strait & a basketball hoop laundry hamper on the door & a country quilt on the bed & your horses out in the pasture all at the same time…oh wait, that was me. but while we’re at it, let’s not forget the giant can of RAVE hairspray.

and we believe, dreams are so BIG and beautiful at this age…


and although sometimes, along the way, we all had to grow up…it doesn’t mean we have to decorate that way. or dress that way (or in my case, act that way). because really, kids are way more fun than grown ups. and why, pray tell, WHY do we, as grown ups, feel that we need to get all boring and professional when we grow up? i mean, some things like mall bangs and layering socks really, really needed to go away. but if the height of my mall bangs is directly equivalent to the size of my dreams, then give me mall bangs. give me mall bangs or give me death! ok wait, maybe i got a little too excited there…the point, is let’s all keep dreaming.

and possibly more importantly, let’s let our teens dream. because, they are the dreamers. and over here at JG, they inspire us infinitely. infinitely times infinity. infinitely times infinity squared.

which leads me to my point (yes, i do have a point…and yes, it’s taken me this long to get to it)…almost a year ago, PB teen released our first ever exclusive #junkgypsy4pbteen line. read here to find out how that crazy journey began. and now, we’re really excited and soooo proud and crazzzzzyyyyyyy honored to be announcing our second line with PB teen available now!


from a totally rad pillow collection….(all under $45!!)…

to the country blooms bedroom…

and the american dreamer bedroom featuring the american dreamer patchwork quilt…

of which we were inspired by vintage western pearl snaps & bandanas.

and of course we included all the things we love…denim, cowhide, guitars, quotes…in the entire collection…

and lest us not forget fringe…

we’d loveeee for y’all to check out the whole collection & let us know what you think!!!! we think it’s for all ages!!! for anyone with a BIGGGGG dream!!! plus it has a lookbook, how-to DIY videos, and behind-the-scenes videos & pictures!
