{it's beautiful here}

Lately have been coming across beautiful "handwritten" words across walls as art, in warm and wonderful messages such as "it's beautiful here" {above} and "And I Love You" {below}, and love the idea of being always inspired by favourite words and phrases . . .

The piece {above} is a neon wall sculpture by Tracey Emin, installed above a photograph by Darren Almond and an incredible glass box filled with gold leaf that sits on the coffee table, from David Gill Galleries.

I actually really love the neon script (I wouldn't expect I would).

Those signs are absolutely beautiful. I wonder if you can have them made with your own script?

I love Tracey Emin's use of words. She is my favorite artist and I was glad to see her work here.

Oh wow, I love them! Lovely "handwriting" always makes me tingle. Though I don't usually like neon script, both works are absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful find.

I love this idea. I have always had a thing for neon signs.. but it doesn't suit my french provincial room.
I do also love ït's beautiful here", what a lovely thing to have on a wall

I am crazy about letters and words. I made myself a telephone wire word for my wall - "see"- and now want to do another one to complement it - "look" - but I'v found that the second word is way more difficult to fashion than the first one! Must try again ...

Oh wow! Writings on the wall.. that's a totally innovative concept to me! And somehow, I adore the neon script... all of a sudden, neon doesn't look tacky to me :)

And the gold leaves? Out of this world.

The "It's beautiful here" originates from an artist in South Africa. And it really is beautiful here!
