Even the smaller things have character

0071f

Happy Friday!! I’m back again after spending a day or two doing some photos on my other blog.  My Flickr sidebar gives you a view of some of those photos as I still maintain only one Flickr for both blogs.

Today I’m showcasing items from a few events and one creator that I consistently blog for, which is Bee Designs.  They’ve been really hard at work making some festive stuff for this holiday season.  I’m showing their items from their Winter Moments Gacha that is available at this round of Liaison Collaborative. The rare being the cabin and the commons the decor items that are scattered inside and some outside. I had fun putting all this together as I was really drawn to the simple triangle shaped cabin.

The garlands are gacha items by ChicChica at the upcoming round of Tres Chic that starts tomorrow.  The theme is Holiday Magic so stay tuned for some more amazing holiday stuff coming to the grid. The Morin Khuur display is by Zansibar cretionsZ, for this round of Genre, who also has a theme and it’s anything Mongolia.  The Morin Khuur known also as a horsehead fiddle is considered one of the traditional bowed string instruments in the Mongolian culture.  There is a playable version in the set as well.

Other items used are the gifts near the coffee table, which are from +XAnSA+ at the Winter Solstice in the Mystic Realms.  They are part of a bigger set, which are some holiday blimps, so go check them out.

Some of the outdoor landscape items that I’m using today are also from the Winter Solstice. The Tree with swing chair is by Sweet Revolutions and comes with poses for gals and guys and then smaller trees in the picture are by .AiShA.  This picture doesn’t give them justice, because they are some wonderful flashing light trees. I featured them in one of my posts on my other blog, so if you want to take a better look at some lighted ones visit the event or take a peak at my “Lets rest a while the time is near” post.

That’s it for now… and if you want to hear some soothing lovely music I leave you with a Spring Waltz tune said to be by Chopin, though highly unlikely and from reading the comments section it’s not.  It’s still lovely and was listening to it the whole time I was putting this post together.

It’s time to burst the bubble

024ps

I hope everyone had a great Christmas.  Mine was extremely blessed as I got to spend it with my family, eating good food and just spending time together. That alone is one of the greatest gifts we can receive. I got even an unexpected gift that for me went a long way in healing and restoring a little of that brokenness I’ve been feeling.  I have to say that it feels good when you finally start to get that sense of release from bottled up emotions.  It’s a step in being able to move forward and start embracing something new or at least feel safe enough to start coming out of the bubble and speaking of such.

I somehow missed seeing these glass ornaments at the holiday market and when I saw them on display recently I just had to find some.  I managed to grab all the commons at a yard sale and then the owner gifted me with the two rares. It was a very sweet present from a stranger.  It’s those acts of kindness that really keeps me believing that there is still good in all of us.

Take me to church 043

I finally made it to the Fantasy Faire.  If you’re not familiar with this event, it is one of the biggest events for Relay for Life of Second Life, which is also a part of the Relay for Life fundraising of the American Cancer Society.  While I support this organization in real life in appreciation for their work and what it means to me personally, it is a fund raiser that I also like to support in some small way here in Second Life as well.

Even though I was able to get to the event I was not able to fully appreciate the design builds as I lagged pretty badly.  While I have better internet speed these days, there are certain places that I still struggle to walk in even if I get my rendering weight down to like 3000 and I derender everyone in sight.  Though from the pictures I’ve seen and whatever I was able to glimpse while I hopped around it looks pretty magical.

The event ends in the next couple of days so you need to visit now to take advantage of some of the great items made by some of the best fantasy designers.  Visit the website to find out what other events are happening within the event itself, because there is live music, book readings, auctions, a hunt and I even saw some areas for you to role play as well.   All that and more to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.

The website also provides you with a preview of the items that have been discounted and proceeds go towards the fund raising goals.  This system works very well and I was able to just directly teleport to the area where the items I wanted to purchase were.

This hair pin/comb is a beautifully done piece that I made larger by stretching it out.  There is a crown version that is bigger except the comb is the item for Relay for Life and since I was able to modify this it worked out great.   The dress is also from the faire and is a gacha item and while I got lucky to get the rare one I was really vying for a common one in red.  I may just have to go back.

Have a great Friday!

Alexa & Claire

During this round of Enchantment one of the prizes if you completed a stamp card was this long hair from Tableau Vivant.   It comes with lots of color choices, so not a bad prize at all.   My friend Claire and I really liked this hair so we decided to take some photos together.  I was shooting for the Latina Rapunzel except black in this hair didn’t look very good on me.

I’m also the proud owner of the llama that’s next to me thanks to Claire.  It’s absolutely cute and you just wear it and it walks right along side of you. You can find them at the ongoing school festival.  I still have not been able to complete this event, each time I go its pretty full and it lags me terribly that it’s impossible to even look.

The fool.

Juggler

Over the weekend the temperatures dipped into the mid 40s, which is a bit chilly for us Floridians when you’re used to an average of 80 plus degrees of sunshine.   It was a nice change even if I hardly went out other than a few times out of necessity. Besides the chilly day yesterday I was also in a very restless mood that as the day went on juggled between feeling emotional and downright grumpy. Thankfully, no one was harmed during this episode of changeability.

I spent a good amount of time doing inventory while in Second Life, not necessarily deleting, more like organizing and rewriting descriptions to be able to find items in the future.  It’s how I found myself wearing this cape and fools hat that were a gacha purchase at the recent round of the Fantasy Collective, which is still running for a few more days.

While editing the photo I did a quick search on the fool and found this snippet of information on what the fool means in a card reading.

“The Fool can signal a new beginning or change of direction – one that will guide you onto a path of adventure, wonder and personal growth. He also reminds you to keep your faith and trust your natural responses. If you are facing a decision or moment of doubt, the Fool tells you to believe in yourself and follow your heart no matter how crazy or foolish your impulses may seem.”

Considering that I have always found that when I’m feeling restlessness that it signals a time of transition in my life, this descriptive meaning couldn’t have fit any better.
