one might ask what is it about an airstream? why are they so appealing? why, after 80 years on the road, are they still timeless?

and i think, i know the answer.

airstreams are romantic. they are mysterious. they infer adventure and freedom and wanderlust.

from the griswalds to rockstars & movie stars…

they are the great american roadtrip.

our love affair with airstreams began long ago…it began with our love of the road.

“keep your eyes on the stars & the stars in your eyes.” ~wally byam

from roadside eateries…

{grabbing green smoothies from happy belly cafe}

to filming our HGTV series….

from MiRANDA LAMBERt‘S roadside bar on wheels we designed for her…

and now…DiERKS BENTLEy‘S junk gypsy-fide airstream will be featured this SATURDAY, MAY 12 on HGTV…

and did i mention…

that airstreams are sexy?





(and yes, i do realize this is not an airstream buuuut it’s james dean, y’all…so for the sake of my daydreamin’-airstreamin’-james deanin’ blog…i’m calling it an airstream. so there.)

    Can’t wait to watch it! I dvr’d it as I was away camping this weekend! Every time an airstream comes in for the weekend at our campground…it always brings with it a romantic mystery about it!

    You ladies are amazing! I first heard about you from Courtney Parker many years ago. You have accomplished so much since then. Congratulations on your new digs and blessings for your continued success!

    Hi ladies. Being a Texas girl relocated to Atlanta, I fell in love with everything about about your designs and your way of life. You guys (well…gals) make me want to move back home. . But I had a crazy idea today that I can’t seem to shake…how about opening a Junk Gypsies II in the funky college town of Athens, GA???

    We are working on a one of kind Airstream project that we would love to share with the Junk Gypsies. (Maybe another makeover in the future) http://www.homespunparties.com/thefreshdaily/13515514/makeround2
