HGTV, Flea Market Style and self inflicted fame

HGTV feature of Funky Junk Interiors

Well, look who’s first up in line over at HGTV.com HERE.

This was by far a category made for me so I submitted a few of my projects. You’ll also see some well known blog superstars in the mix so I challenge you to ‘name that photoshoot!’ when you glance through them. :)

Thanks Farima at HGTV! I’m thrilled to be a part of this!

Let’s see… what else… big agenda today…

Flea Market Style Magazine feature of Funky Junk Interiors 

Flea Market Style Magazine feature of Funky Junk Interiors

I was going to wait until I received a copy to tell you that I’m featured in Flea Market Style Magazine. However many of you are already holding one in your hands, you lucky ducks!

And just maybe if I can hunt one down myself, I’ll throw on some movie star sunglasses, sign a copy and send it to one of you…

“Well, these are taken! Keep lookin’!”

(This is my friend Sonny btw. And you don’t want to see the rest of this pic. )

 And just maybe I’ll do that every time I’m IN a magazine from now on to celebrate it!

Word has it that the mag article is making quite a stir.

 “Oh my stars…. I must try this!”

And just when I thought my demographic was mostly women…

“HAHAHAAA! NO WAY! Who IS this girl? I need to go find her. Because I’m awesomely single, cute, I build, I made a coffee table out of rusty gears, and I have a killer plaid jacket collection! Oh. I love cats and love cat hair even MORE.  And I’d cook and have the coffee pot on all the time for her so she could just create. Dumpster diver too?!? Well rust my bucket! Wait, she says that too!”

But word is getting out to the famous as well….

“Woaa baby… Momma! Takalookatthis!”

“THIS…  is DEEP.”

“*SOB*… I can’t hold it together! Nate, call this girl to NYC! She can crate up MY stairs!”

“Thanks for the tweet, Liberty! I’m on it! This is outstanding junk! Can someone ring up a limo suitable for a Canadian junkin’ sign fanatic?”

“This’ll do, eh boss?”

“Nate! I loved the limo!”

“FJ Donna, I can’t believe you’re really here! Hot new perm by the way…”

“Do a little junkin’ and coffee later?”

“Wouldn’t miss it!”

And then this!

I know. I can barely believe it myself. Thanks Val!

“Do a little junkin’ and coffee later?”

“Wouldn’t miss it!”

I know. How silly. :) And for the record? I have the highest respect for the stars above. For they are displaying a talent and status most could only dream of.

But I hope this feeling of humble elation never leaves, even with the smallest features somehow, somewhere.

Thank-you Flea Market Style and HGTV! I’m so honored!

Which only proves…

I also want the Flea Market Garden to no avail! I will keep on looking, guess I will check on line. Love the post, by the way. You always brighten my day.

  11. Well, I think the next SNS should be Junky Sunglasses. I have some ideas already. Waiting with bated breath (whatever that means) for the desk reveal. Give us a few hints – is it 12 feet long? 16 feet? What will come first, Gaddafi’s resignation or the desk reveal? Ann

    I’ll have to find that magazine. Looks like a good one!! (I’m not up on what’s out there in magazines. My scoping out the magazine aisles have ceased for a while whilst I generally shop with 3 little ones.
