Have you ever seen something and realized it is exactly what you are looking for, but didn’t know it until you saw it?  I have been wanting something neon for my garden for a while, but mostly my shopping has turned up only the lamest of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer signs on Ebay and collectibles, that while cool, are completely outside of my price range.   I have considered taking a course in Neon Sign Making — but have yet to find one.

Daniel Bruce’s exhibition called Rustic Room is probably also beyond my funding, but is the perfect inspiration for what I want.   I (of course) love that his pieces are all garden related (for the most part at least — I don’t yet associate guns with gardens — but that may change — the woodchuck is still pushing my patience) and in the monochrome color scheme, they appeal to a sense of modernism.    I am most lusty over the wheelbarrow — I would put it on the side of a shed near a garden utility area where it would wait for the garden visitor to discover it as they rounded the corner.
