Country Thunder and Ron

Well Country Thunder was a hoot! Fun to see all the characters who come out for this four-day country musicfest at the historic Canyon Moon Ranch in Florence, AZ. And, after so many years in corporate America, I never get tired of my "office" being a lush green field of wild grasses.

A major highlight was listenin to legendary Willie Nelson under a star filled sky. That one's gonna stick with me...
My most fun customer award this time goes to Molly, Randi and Ron. Molly's just plain and simple a Paris Montana girl. She fit right in and looked fabulous in everything she tried on (and bought!). Randi was just the cutest little pregnant mom, who was right there with Molly...and Ron? Well, listen up gals, his job was to stand there and look cute...give the girls money...and carry their packages!!! Best part? He liked it!!! I don't know where he came from...but I think every girl needs a Ron.

See ya'll down the road!

Country Thunder Here Comes Paris Montana!

We dusted off our boots from Texas and I just got my Junk Gypsy "Cleanest Dirty Shirt" back from that nice lady who washes, dries, fluffs and folds...which means it must be time to head to Florence, AZ for! This four day event runs April 14-April 17 and will have our fav Miranda Lambert (modeling a Paris Montana design in our last blog!), the Legendary Willie Nelson, Keith Urban, Kid Rock and even Kevin Costner and his band will be there. So git your boots on girl and come on out! Yee Haw!

With all the fabulous finds we picked up along the way to Texas and back, those cowgirls and country music fans are gonna go crazy!
Check out this fun piece called Summertime Fling! We will have this little honey and lots of other great finds out there!
Be sure to look for our shiny Paris Montana Airstream Blacktop Boudoir and stop by to say hi!

See ya'll down the road!

Miranda Lambert, Junk Gypsies and Texas Caviar!

Ever had one of those magical trips where the moon and the stars aligned...and not only did everything exceed your expectations to the point where you are almost giddy anyway...but then oh, say, country singer MIRANDA LAMBERT stops by and falls in love with one of your necklaces?!? And the amazingly talented and bona fide JUNK GYPSIES are your neighbors...who stop by to ask how ya'll are doin! And the famous local Royer's Cafe, puts on a spagetti and disco night! (Really, is there a better combo?)
Well that's how our trip to Antique Week at Zapp Hall in Warrenton, TX went down.
My dear friend and fabulous artist Meg Harper and I hooked up the Paris Montana Blacktop Boudoir and headed to Warrenton, TX, for Antique Week on a glorious AZ mornin two weeks ago.
If you've never been, it's truly like a designer/shopper/dreamer/gypsy fantasy land with acres of fabulous finds from reclaimed barn wood to $50,000 Persian rugs. I used to complain that we didn't have anything stateside that could compete with the Parisian fleas. We do. It's called Antique Week and it stretches from Roundtop to Warrenton, TX and many points in between!
During our 10-day visit we met all kind of characters, made great new friends, and ate Texas Caviar (black eyed peas with some delicious sauce) like it was going out of style. We danced and sang and laughed and held onto our hats in the wind. It was a most wonderful glorious adventure and I can't hardly wait for the fall show!
Glitter Salvage
On the horizon...During the show we developed a concept for a whole new vintage reclaimed salvage line, which will be a series of statement pieces made from vintage jewelry molds that I can't wait to share with ya'll. For a sneak peak, check out the piece I am wearing in the pic next to Miranda Lambert.
See you down the road!
