I think that I have a new ultimate “dream job” every week. This week, it’s to be a Junk Gypsy. “Junk Gypsy” is a show on HGTV that is awesome and amazing and wonderful. Two sisters search for junk to use as home decor items; they refurbish some pieces of junk and leave others just as they are and they put them to use as furniture and decor in people’s homes and it is a fabulous, fabulous thing.
And they are my new heroes and inspiration.
Two things stand between me and my aspirations of joining the ranks and starting my new career as a Junk Gypsy.
- I live in the middle of nowhere, which means that cool junk/flea markets are kind of hard to come by.
- I have zero creativity when it comes to repurposing junk. Zilch. Nada. Completely void.
On the episode I watched yesterday, they took a French horn and turned it into a chandelier. Hello?! A musical instrument turned light fixture?! It was fabulous! And something I wouldn’t have thought of in a million, trillion years. They are super creative. Maybe if I relocate to Texas and follow them around for a few years a fraction of their creativity would rub off on me. Hmmm. Probably not, but they totally inspire me anyway. And I love being inspired!
