Life at Rancho Maravilla.

Rancho Maravilla 039

Sometimes I wish for a simple life of living out in the country and having nothing to worry about other than a few farm animals.   I would go around in a dress like this, which is available at this round of Shiny Shabby. It was hard picking from the selection of colors available as I liked every one of them.

Shutter Field had a great selection of chairs available this past Lazy Sunday like these dark wood peacock chairs that have some nice sit animations for male and female.  I look forward to showing you some more home and garden items from this creator in the near future.

I think I love you.

I think I love you 038

When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being “in love”, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”  ― Louis de Bernieres, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin

The Christmas Blues.

Blue Christmas 2

Decorating the Christmas tree is almost a tradition in my family.  It’s one of these 7-foot round artificial fir trees that my mother has had for almost 20 years.  Surprisingly, for it’s age it still looks rather good and while we look each year for a new one they never seem to measure up.  The color scheme is usually decided upon months in advance and when it’s time to decorate it all my sisters and my mother get together to do it.
This year the tree is a country theme and has ornaments that have been collected over the years and then each year that collection grows as we all contribute as we find things throughout our shopping excursions. This silver and blue color scheme in my picture is one we did in 2012, so it was kind of fun doing something similar with this new foyer mini set that [ARIA] has created for the Sou( event that opens in a few days on December 20th.   The set consists of the jar with the birch branch, decorative cushions in which the two cushion pile has six fabric choices and the single cushion has three.   The bench comes with six fabric choices and loaded with single and couple animations.
All items are listed below.

The Donut Festival…

Donuts Blog

When I saw these donuts today at early access for the Donut Festival my mouth began to water. They look absolutely delicious and not to mention well done!   I am only showing a handful of the donuts that will be available starting tomorrow at the Atelier Kreslo Donut Festival, which will run for two weeks.

If you’re like me you won’t be able to stop at just one and I will probably visit again in the near future…like tomorrow.  🙂
