Neon! And Succulents!


Awhile back, I came across this great DIY (on a lovely little blog called The Proper Pinwheel) featuring one of my favorite trends right now: neon (my love of which is obviously a holdover from being a child of the 80's...only this time I will not be dressing head to toe in neon yellow).

Since I already had the IKEA pots, and succulent trees badly in need of some trimming/transplanting, all the girl and I had to do was make a quick trip for some neon paint (orange and pink for us). She carefully helped me tape off the pots a couple of weeks ago and this past weekend we finally got around to replanting some of our succulents!

I'm quite happy with how they turned out, and they are now living at the front door of our Eichler, looking all happy and neon-y.

And speaking of the house, it looks like we might be able to submit the plans to the city for permits next week!!! I believe that process takes 3-4 weeks, but it's exciting to finally be able to see a bit of forward movement. We are so so ready to move in!!!

This is lovely! Quick question: where on earth can you find neon external paint? Any tips gratefully received. Thanks.
