Seeing the sunset from every direction

Shutter Field 057

I’m doing a quick post to show this pier kit by Shutter Fields that is out today at a reduced price for Lazy Sunday.  The kit has nice separate sections and a single pole with all pieces being copy and mod, so that you can design the pier to your own needs.  I put together this simple one to be able to show you the texture and some of the pieces.  It’s fairly easy to use and it gives you a chance to build to your own liking.

Grab it at a discount before the price goes up.

Memories take us back, dreams take us forward

I never tire of thinking of you 031

It’s a lazy Sunday for sure in both worlds.  Kuro has made a batch of breakfast pancakes for us to enjoy and is available today for Lazy Sunday.  The delicious looking pancakes come on a stand with a land impact of one.  You can find them at the main store.

Today,  I am also featuring this rustic bench by unKindness, which is their participation to The Lexi Project.  If you’re not familiar already with unKindness, it is a relatively new home and furniture store on the grid.  I look forward to showing you more of their stuff in the near future.  The bench will be available in both PG and Adult version, with single and couple animations and adult animations in the adult version.

In the meantime let me share with you The Lexi Project.  The owner of AngelRed Couture was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Second Life residents have banned together to support her by collaborating on a fundraiser to raise funds to help her with some of her medical expenses.  There are about 350 brands supporting this project, from apparel, decor, poses, skin, hair and so much more with 100% of the proceeds going directly to this cause.

The event is scheduled to open its doors Sunday, July 26th at midnight SL time.  If you would like to know more or interested in how to donate, please visit the The Lexi Projec blog.  I’ve included some more links at the bottom of the credits.

As I read her post on her blog, it was heart wrenching and my thoughts and prayers were sent up immediately for her and her family.  If you’re able to, please help support this event.

It’s a second post today.  I am trying to do a little catch up while I have some time before rushing off to meet some friends for dinner to show you some of the awesome stuff that you can find right now at current events.  The Deva mini living set by [ARIA] is currently at this round of Uber.  The rich colors of the pieces certainly meet the expectations of the theme spice.  The lotus candles, the tables and sofa all come with texture change options.

Next are the sun chairs with well over ten sitting animations that Kuro will have available tomorrow for Lazy Sunday. There a total of five chairs, the only color not shown is the blue.

The cypress oaks are from Little Branch and can be found at the current round of The Cosmopolitan Room.  I love the option of having all four seasons with just a few clicks.

You can find all the information below.

Quick post to share that the wooden shed and the garden cushion I’m sitting on are from Shutter Field and can be purchased at their store in-world today at a discount for Lazy Sunday.

I spent my evening time last night sorting through my inventory organizing some items received and trying to see what I can do to take a few pictures to honor my commitment to those creators who share their creations with me to blog.   It’s two fold in a way.  I am trying to distract myself from over thinking and not let myself be hooked to give into irrational fears to the challenges that are forthcoming in the next few weeks.  That’s the problem with being the strong one sometimes, because when it’s your turn to face challenges no one really thinks you need a hand.

May you enjoy the rest of what remains of your Sunday.

While I don’t keep up to date on all stores geared for children I do know there is a reasonable amount of small sized events aimed for this population in Second Life.  When I get a chance I will try and update my blog to include a section of stores that cater to the Toddleedoo.
As you can see I couldn’t resist some of the fun and cute stuff there was to have at the latest round of The Play Room and Woodlands.

My winter dream.

003

I was short on time this morning, and was only able to post on Flickr before having to rush off for a morning meeting.  I have about fifteen minutes before I have to rush off again to meet a friend for lunch.  I figured that in that time I can get this done.  This is my first snow scene in Second Life all the while it’s only relatively cool with weather in the mid sixties today here in my real world as I type this.  It’s a small cold front we’re having as our normal weather is usually high seventies or low eighties.

When I thought of doing something snowy with the Christmas feel I thought of Norman Rockwell scenes.  I have always loved his work of portraying American life through his paintings.   I have been in Florida most of my life with only small stints of living in other parts of the US like a year in California and another year in Washington state.  The latter being where I experienced snow probably for the first time that I can remember when I was like seven years old.  Outside of that I have seen snow only on a few other occasions like in upstate New York while on a business trip and a family vacation in the mountains of Tennessee.

This would be my ideal snow scene.

Pumpkin Patch

“Things fall apart so better things can fall together.” ~ Marilyn Monroe “

Pumpkin Patch

The last few weeks have been a little up and down for me and a large part is my own fault for allowing circumstances beyond my control to negatively get the better of me.  Though over the weekend I had a bit of an epiphany and accepted the circumstances in the best way possible by making a choice to let nature take its own course.   My seventy plus year old grandmother often reminds me that sometimes you have to let one door close to allow another to open.  Since she’s still kicking up a storm I guess she knows what she’s saying.

Feeling a bit of the tension now leaving me I found myself wanting to bring out little me, because she makes me laugh at myself.  I picked up these pumpkins during a 25L Tuesday, which I might add this list is mostly role-play items.  I have always loved the idea of a pumpkin patch and unfortunately here in my part of the world you only find them in the yard of a few churches who decide to sell pumpkins to raise funds.  Just not the same thing and it’s a good thing I’m in Second Life, because I’m definitely not wearing mommy clothes for such a place.

Good & Evil

0196

The dichotomy of good and evil has always been an interesting subject and I can safely say it dates as far back to the age of the bible.  I don’t plan to talk about morals or religion as that is a personal thing that I try never to debate unless it’s with people who will accept your difference of thoughts, beliefs and opinions and can still smile at you after the conversation.  I will say this.  Personally, I think the relevance lies in the seed of both good and evil that exists inside each of us.  It’s definitely a balancing act when it comes to choosing which one will win.

It’s only mid morning and its dark and raining here — so this picture feels perfect for the overcast day we’re having.

Tree Nymph

014-3

I seem to always get blonde or dip dye hairs when I play hair gachas as was the case with this willow tree hair from Little Bones that I got at the Secret Affair event.  Having started off as a redhead in SecondLife and then transitioned into browns/black hairs that felt more natural to me. Maybe I should consider my next major hair change to go blonde — it would save me lots of lindens that’s for sure.

This outfit really started off being pink as both the corset and feather pauldrons are texture change, except finding a bustier with the color to fit the rest of the combination proved to be a bit difficult so I switched to this ivory color.  I see creative looks like this all the time on Flickr and I find them fascinating, so I am just playing to see what I can put together.
