“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill

Finally, we have some neon in the house (wanted some for ages).  Bought this for $50 on Trade Me.  Photo doesn’t do justice to the green light.  It’s above the door to our bedroom – I’m expecting there will always be a vacancy…..

Coincidentally read this great article on Stuff recently about saving our neon heritage.  A little conflicted here – LED’s are the culprit – I love LED.  It’s estimated there are fewer than 20 neon benders (there term, not mine) left in New Zealand.  I’m surprised it’s that many.  Anyway, I look forward to the day I can commission a neon piece from one of them :-)
