Living Large on the Gangway

I’m your trashy neighbor, sorry.

Well it happened, with a lot of help and encouragement from my friend Gogolita I managed to get a spot on Bellisaria on the newly opened Gangway. Fate would have it that Cajsa has a houseboat right in front of my house, which is backed by a park behind me and a lovely stretch of road in front. 

It’s a nice little suburban wonderland really. 

SO you know I just had to get all crazy trashy with A GIANT HELLO KITTY SLIDE. It’s not my fault, I had to. At least for a little while

Hair Fair Is Over, Thank Goodness I at least shopped.

Cajsa managed to get off the Hair Fair press releases this year, as I was completely swamped. But I did manage to get over and do my part shopping that awesome event, I picked up several new hairs and felt warm and fuzzy when they were really contributing to Wigs for Kids. Hair Fair is such an amazing event – I hope you went.

Happy Here

This little home may be my home base for a while. Pity my neighbors i’m about to decorate for Halloween!

10/08/2018 – Pastel Dream

Oh hello! Have you seen the latest release from Cheeky Pea? It’s already available in the main store so no need to fight the lag at some overcrowded event. The lovely Carolyn Gazebo set features a gazebo (obviously), but also all the furniture you can see in the pictures : chair, sofa, coffee table, side table, chiminea (with flames!), coffee tray, rug and mugs, cute knick-knacks, and the loveliest potted daisies. I vote that Cheeky Pea start releasing more plants in the future, she’s really gifted with them!

13/05/2018 – Pink and teal make pretty

I am not feeling overly inspired to write anything today, but I wanted to show you a few gorgeous things that I found these past few weeks, at events, stores, or buried deep in my inventory. I’ll start with the hair. I’ve been in the Truth VIP group since the very beginning of the new concept, and some months I barely logged in, or if I did I was too busy with other things to really check what the gift was. So when I found Ginevra, last November’s gift, I just went wow. The super pretty glasses are free from Balaclava, they were the demo for this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer. Make sure to check FaMESHed this month if you haven’t yet, the Tres Blah dress is yet another little wonder.

The Arcade Closes at Midnight Saturday

This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one

“This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one. There were still plenty left running to keep the air over Detroit filled with that choking industrial aptitude, but you were never far from a hollowed-out factory, massive steel tubes on the roofs pointing up toward the sky with nothing left inside but dust and cobwebs. These giant pillars of concrete and metal now jutted high like extended index fingers from broken and casted hands, pointing toward something they would never touch.”
― Michael A. Ferro, TITLE 13: A Novel

This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one
The Arcade closes at midnight Saturday and if you let that happen without picking up the fabulous industrial pieces from NOMAD, you will miss out. The gacha has the delicious name of My Cozy Little Industrial Facility that cracks me up in the best possible way.

She Sells Sea Shells at The Arcade

“Everybody needs a seashell in her bathroom to remind her the ocean is her home.”

22769 has a beautiful conch shell in their “Fisherman’s Delight” gacha at The Arcade. They have two great gachas there, one for picnickers and one for fishing fans. I was thrilled to find it because the oldest family heirloom in my family is a large conch shell. My seventh great-grandfather picked it up on the beach almost 370 years ago while on his honeymoon in Barbados in 1649. It has been passed down ever since and my cousin, being the eldest son of the eldest son, has it in his living room on a buffet similar to this one from Fancy Decor (another Arcade find.)

Come Around and Talk It Over

It’s a fuzzy sweater time of year and I’m trolling the mean streets looking for what’s new and exciting.

Collabor88 opens it’s doors with a new round and I’m wearing some of the goodies right now. Continue reading

Candy Is Dandy

It all started with  a picture of hair that Sasy posted on Facebook. It has sprinkles on it and she was excited to go get it. I knew Candy Fair was coming up but honestly I hadn’t given it too much thought.

I can’t say why. I’m sure I’ve been before. So since I had a lot of free time on this lovely Saturday I thought HEY I should go check that out!  And I was amazed.  Continue reading

Fall Touches

Second Spaces brought some lovely fall decor to Collabor88 this month and I’m madly in love because it’s all ONE PIECE rather than 438954579 separate pieces that rez together and then you have to link them all yourself to move them.

I swear to you, there is a special hell for people who put their decor releases out like that.

I curse you, I do. Every time I realize I’m about to unpack something something that’s multiple items which are unlinked part of me dies inside.

That’s why Second Spaces is the bees knees. It really is. Continue reading
