Back in My Own Bed

No place like home

It’s funny how good it feels to sleep in your own bed again after traveling. It is not that any of the places I stayed had uncomfortable beds. They were all lovely, but sure enough, back in my own bed, I slept longer with fewer interruptions. Why? I think it must be the sounds. At both my sisters’ houses it was just too quiet. No cars passing, no sirens, no garbage trucks at 5 AM. Instead, it was silent except for the chirps and rattles of the martins, the long whistles of the cardinals and orioles, and the shrieks of blue jays. My one sister is quite a birder with special houses and feeders, though it was kind fun and frustrating watching a squirrel carrying off the oranges she put out for the orioles. This bed is from DRD, part of the wonderful romantic collection released for The Arcade. The lovely letter and rose petals came from Fancy Decor at The Arcade, but it is more fun to pretend they came from a long lost love.

Things That Go TOK In the Night

I was so wound up from my exciting and happy Friday that I just couldn’t sleep properly. I decided to read for a while to see if that calmed me down but you know then my mind got going with all the beautiful things I was seeing and I was even MORE awake. Continue reading

Every Little Thing…Is Gonna Be Alright

Sometimes, just sometimes, you get a perfect Friday. For me that’s today and I am celebrating the best way  I know how – watching the sun set in my pixel world and relaxing poolside. Continue reading

Tales from the Wandering Camp

VINTAGE FAIR is happening and I’m lounging in a new release from FISSION, who is still a mainstay of classic couture in my wardrobe. There aren’t a lot of retro fashion designers of consistent quality, Ingenue and Fission area always at the top of my list. Continue reading

A Lady of Varied Interests

I think it’s important to have various interests and activities in one’s life.  Thanks to the Arcade and Collabor88 I am able to embrace lots of mine, and try new things like this hoverboard. It’s SO much fun, I may use it for travelling everywhere from now on!  Continue reading

Like a Peasant? Not Hardly!

Let’s face it, I’m not one for work of any sort. Housework? Oh good grief. But you see Cajsa has gone off on an adventure leaving me alone here on the isles for a few days and I confess I must get some work done. If i don’t it will all pile up and the entire place will be a disaster when she returns from her trip and well, that’s just no good.

I’m not keen on laundry. In fact I’m more of a wear it once and throw it away sort of girl, I confess. However, sheets and things like that must get done so here I am. At least things will be tidy when I am done! Right? And my new ironing board from What Next makes it a BIT more fun, I confess.  Continue reading

Visiting Cajsa

I am visiting Cajsa but she’s not home. So I’m touching all her stuff while she isn’t here. No one tell her.

We live on islets facing one another, and it reminds me of a fond time in SL from my ancient past. A friend had a swath of land with little islets all together and it was a lovely, idyllic little place to live for a long time. It’s like living with one’s friends yet living alone with freedom and privacy too. I rather like it. Continue reading
