Dear Santa I Can Explain – I FOUND The Baby

The Patchwork Lodge from PLAAKA at this round of Arcade is definitely one of the MUST HAVEs from this round. It’s a gorgeous light filled wonder and I only wish it was bigger. It’s truly lovely.

I’m taking the night off to relax in it’s rustic wonder, enjoying the view and relative peace of this space. Continue reading

The Arcade Is Coming

I’ve surrendered my lindens to the Gods of the Arcade and I have NO regrets. My cup runneth over with joy and happy. The things I deleted have been replaced with new, wonderful things and I’m ready for the season of happy!

Some of my first pass loves are the amazing folk art pieces for the kitchen from The Secret store and these HUSKIES from Jian. Oh gosh there are so many and SO SO SO CUTE. Continue reading

Winter Is Coming – Winter Eyes That Is…

The Twel2ve event or however you spell it is still going on until the 30th, so you still have time to go grab some new eyes if you’re looking to switch up your look. These from Banana Banshee are part of her OTHER collection – the Seasons Eyes. I’m in love with the blue of Winter, it’s a perfect icy blue color with just a hint of grey.  Continue reading
