Edna St. Vincent Millay was not thinking of textiles when she wrote, “I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one,” but nonetheless, when I put on this dress from NOIR for Collabor88, I immediately thought of her poem, “Afternoon on a Hill” perhaps because of that line, but also perhaps because it describes so well, the joy and contentment a person can find in nature.
I will be the gladdest thing Under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.
I will look at cliffs and clouds With quiet eyes, Watch the wind bow down the grass, And the grass rise.
And when lights begin to show Up from the town, I will mark which must be mine, And then start down!
i’m feeling a dreamy sort of contentment swathed in teal today. It’s one of my favorite colors and it fell out of favor for so long, I’m glad to see it’s return.
Blueberry bring us a perfect casual skirt set for Collabor88 this month, and I’m in love with my new Updo (I have two new ones yay) this one is from D!VA. I love the Moonstone shade of blonde she makes. What’s your favorite?
It’s a quickie for me tonight. Have a great Sunday evening girls.

2018 is off to a rocky start with a five-day stay at the hospital. I am home again, thankfully, and recovering. Oddly enough, though, I seem to have picked up vertigo at the hospital. I know you can’t do that, but I did anyway. So the world is a spinny, dizzy, silly place. It’s really odd. I can turn to the left just fine, but turning to the right makes me dizzy. I see political implications in this. Turning to the right is bad for you.
What’s not bad for you? The refulgent abundance of this month’s fabulous Collabor88 showcase. The theme is Moody Blooms, a clever pun that is overshadowed by the rich, lush, floral blossoming of creativity to enjoy this month. For example, this gorgeous dress from Baiastice has a HUD that allows you to choose solids or the gorgeous floral lace. I love the luxe beauty. There’s this homage to medieval forms with the lines of the bodice. I love the lace peplum, though it’s more flattering than the usual peplum by laying close to the body rather than adding lots of width. Continue reading →
It’s another day of exploring at Backdrop City for me. I have found no less than five new creators I need to support with my $$ and I’ll be going shopping soon. If you’re like me, you like to own a lot of backdrops to set up fun scenes for blogging the creations of our world. Continue reading →
I had to go an see it with my own eyes, the place that was so driven by drama of late. I have thoughts, some of which I’ve shared on plurk. They are as follows.
This place is truly a bloggers paradise. It’s an insane resource for those of us who do this as vocation in SL. I think it’s a rather lovely thing to provide to people. It’s not unlike some of us who go to sims decorated just for photography.
I don’t throw my backdrops away. As a blogger, I keep them ad infinitum because I never know when I might need that dragon turtle station wagon surfboard set again. So I keep them. I mention this because apparently there is a belief that we throw them away. I guess some do. I do not.
What this place HAS done for me is introduce me to MORE brands that I need to patronize and give lindens to because THEY make really great stuff. Continue reading →
I couldn’t decide what to wear for my New Year’s Eve. I wasn’t sure I was going to go out or not, you see. But it turned out my friend Putrid was out dancing while Oakley spun tunes and I couldn’t resist. Luckily I had put on “what if I go out” clothes before I logged out last time. Continue reading →
