In Honor of Neon

The Boneyard - a museum in Las Vegas that collects old, decommissioned neon signs. I really want to run around this place with my camera...even in the Vegas heat. How fun...want to join me? What happens in Vegas baby! Check out more photos at Carl Carl.

I wish I could put one of those signs on top of my roof... I like "Honor," but I'd settle for "Sin."

Oh I would SO love to join you! If these signs had video cameras stashed inside of them... just think of all the stories. LOVE!

Ohhh, The Neon Boneyard tours... awesome! There is a place in Chicago called Architectural Artifacts. Granted, they don't carry a museum full of neon signs but it is a museum of sorts {they rent, buy & sell pieces}. I love roaming around that place!
