May

It’s been super cold almost every day this week and today seems the worse.  I like the cold, but preferably when I’m indoors and snuggled under blankets or piled on clothes with a hot cup of cocoa.

Today I’m showcasing the skin May I’m wearing from [PUMEC] at the Skin Fair.  May is made for Catwa and comes in a few different tones named after months. It does not come with a shape.  I’m using the Elsa shape from Bold & Beauty also at the Skin Fair.  The other items featured are the necklace and drink, see details below.

Have a great day!

It's a bit of a hodgepodge.

I’m having one of those weekends where my Second Life leaves a lot to be desired. I know that I’m not alone in this — we’ve all experienced issues in the recent days. Yesterday I had inventory and rezzing issues and no one I knew seemed to be having them, so I feel a bit special.  Of course it’s always at an inopportune time. Like when you have a few dozen of boxes you need to unpack.

Thankfully, today seems a bit better so I was able to get a picture done.  I have to admit that I struggled a bit putting this scene together. I’ll borrow DRD’s words from their current release — it’s a bit of a ‘hodgepodge’.

I hope you have a great Sunday!

I grew up down an old dirt road in a town you wouldn't know..

Hello everyone!! I hope you’re off enjoying the weekend… as for me I tried to sleep in late. It didn’t work.  Those days are past when I can stay in bed beyond a certain hour.  Though its a long weekend for me since Monday is a holiday, even if it’s more than likely I will go into the office for a few hours just to catch up on some work between now and Tuesday.

Country scenes are one of my favorites to do and so I really enjoyed putting these pictures together using items from all the creators/designers listed below. You have to love SecondLife for this very reason. The ability to create the kind of life you might like for yourself even if its for a day, week, month or however long you like. My scenes go up and down within hours, but every minute of creating them and immersing myself within these scenes gives me a lot of joy and sparks my creative juices even more.

Have a great Saturday!!

Rustic Christmas

Morning everyone.  It’s a good day despite some minor annoyance this morning, though I speak for a better day. It’s all about attitude so I’m definitely working on that personally. Today I’m bringing a bit of rustic to our lives.  I might have spoken about this before in years past, but my family and I get into theme decorating each year.  This year we all sort of reverted to the traditional classical Christmas colors. Though one of my favorite themes is rustic country and I’ve collected quite a bit of ornaments and decor surrounding that particular setting. Though honestly I really love all themes and the real joy comes from being able to create beautiful displays that bring smiles and happiness and well honestly they serve as great backdrops for family photos… we’re vain like that.  Laughs.

So while I didn’t have much time to go digging into my inventory to do something a little more with this scene I hope it still inspires you in creating your own wonderful themed Christmas. If you want a little rustic, then visit all the wonderful creators below to grab some of their amazing works.

Enjoy!

Spiritualists Shoppe

Greetings everyone!!  I started to write this before having to step out, but ran out of time and so I had to come back and re-write a few lines.  Today I’m showcasing another awesome set by DRD. The Spiritualists Shoppe is available at the Seasons of the Witch Event that is ongoing until November 4th.  The top photo is the shoppe, that despite its spookiness factor really is quite quaint and inviting.

The items can be purchased as a complete set or by individual pieces.  I tried to showcase as much as possible, but this set is a must see in person. Though if you’re like me I like to also read and get a glimpse of it before visiting an event, so I am providing you links to the DRD website here and Flickr.

Thanks to my friend Sita, who stopped by for a visit so that we ended up not only chatting, but collaborating as well.  She’s wearing a marvelous gown by The White Armory, which I wouldn’t mind having myself.  I don’t have her information, so will link you to her blog for details.  She’s a spinner of marvelous tales, so make sure you check out her work!

I’m also showing this months group gift (frame with knife sticking out) for DRD, which seemed to fit just perfect with this set, so make sure you go grab yours if you’re a member and if you’re not — what are you waiting for??

Have a great one!!
