“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
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. Continue reading →
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.)
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 →
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.
I’ve heard that saying, but I wonder if I’m always in costumes or clothes? Regardless of that, I’ve spent my morning running around in an October fueled joy, because it’s pumpkin time and it’s Halloween time and leaves are turning.
It’s time for everything to change.
I hit the FLF hard and heavy this morning too, as evidenced by my pumpkins, dress and shoes. WORTH every penny.
Some people might tell you it’s too soon to start Halloween dressing and decorating.
We call such people bad friends and recommend you limit your exposure to them. No one needs that kind of negativity.
