Falling for Neon

Alright, I admit it.  I'm slowly falling for the neon fad.  At first when I started seeing this trend, I was reminded of the 80's and thought of urban grime (eww!).  But the more I kept seeing it around- in interiors, fashion, paper goods, everywhere- I began to think how it can become a beautiful contrast against whites or neutrals.  While I currently don't own anything neon, I'm thinking that the yellow tape or pink string below might be a good place to start.  Here are a few of the best neon images I've seen.  What do you think about this trend?

Rustic DIY Projects

This past weekend I dove head first into some new DIY projects courtesy of Pinterest.  Be on the lookout for images and tutorials on future posts.  In the meantime, if you're itching to do something creative here are a few ideas with links to get you started.  I'm loving the current DIY trends of using chicken wire, pallets, and burlap.
