If you have not snapped your holiday pictures yet…

Where to Shoot Holiday Pictures

Aren’t these Leith boots from Schadenfreude hot? You can find them at Collabor88 and if I had been smarter, I would have bought the fat pack.

If you have not snapped you holiday pictures yet, you could not do better than heading over to Wishing Well where Incendia Outdoors has created dozens of scenes perfect for holiday pictures. This is a snap in front of the fire, for all you know I could be roasting chestnuts.

Where to Shoot Holiday Pictures

You can even take a sleigh ride to tour the scenes before deciding where and what you want to shoot.

Returning

July01_001

One of my favorite SL sim builders is Marcus Inkpen whose amazing Utopia 4 build remains a standout for me – though it’s long gone. He’s also the genius behind the stunning Looking Glass sim.

I was thrilled to learn that he has a new sim installation called The Returning. This is one on of the Linden Endowment for the Arts sims. Prepare to be amazed as you look at the pictures from the Flickr group for the sim. I must thank Ryker Beck for sharing a picture of the sim on her plurk – or I might not have known about it.

Spam Gets Metaphysical

jun10_005

We get spam. Luckily most just flies right past into a filter, but a few gems get by and then we get to manually trash it. Every once in a while, it’s tempting to let one through. Take this nugget of wisdom we received today:

Indeed, the sound of words can strike more keenly than any modern decoding of them. Without thinking of the meaning, chant the words “cellar door” to yourself.

I am sure the secret of the universe can be found in there somewhere.  So, I will chant “cellar door” while I stand here looking Tres Glam. And no, I am not being vain. My top is from a Tres Blah dress and the pants are from Glam Affair – which makes me Tres Glam, right?

FLUX-uating

Growing up in the Minnesota Northwoods, Mardi Gras was not something I paid much attention to. I had Catholic friends and knew all about Ash Wednesday, but there were never any big parties the night before. Can you imagine Marge and Norm Gunderson or Jerry Lundegaard dancing down the street while jazz was played by live musicians? Can you imagine live musicians marching down any street in Minnesota playing something other then Minnesota, Hail to Thee or the localized version of On Wisconsin? It’s not that there were no Catholics in the Northwoods, but they were Scandinavian Catholics which made them act more like Lutherans anyway. It worked the same with the Baptists like my family. You may see lots of movies with those Baptist gospel choirs and dancing in the pews, but not the Scandinavian Baptists. They might sing gospel songs, but with all the fervor of Sheldon Cooper. So, any interest in Mardi Gras would have been anthropological – an examination of the rites and practices of some foreign country, like Louisiana.

Some GACHA Fun If You LOVE GACHA

The Love Gacha launched this week and so I thought I’d show you a few of the goodies. The flower in my hair is a gacha item from Balderdash and comes in a beautiful rainbow of colors!

I’m also wearing the cute baseball top from SN@TCH that Cajsa got, since I live my life saying MEH nonstop, she knew I’d have to have it. I’m wearing it with the yoga pants from Somnia which are made to coordinate with the top. And now I can do yoga! Continue reading

Chantilly Lace

feb07_003

Well, I don’t have a ponytail, but I do have a wiggle in my walk, so long as my AO is turned on. I picked this up from Tres Blah at Collabor88 last time – not this time, so don’t get too excited. I have been wearing it the last couple days and thought it worth blogging simply because the quality of the work on this dress is exciting.

Y&R Goodness

jan13_013

It’s been a week since I shot these pictures, but I have been under the weather. I wonder where that phrase comes from. Does it have to do with people feeling achey when the barometer falls? I saw someone suggesting it had to do with being seasick and going down below decks. That doesn’t quite make sense to me since often people who are seasick feel better with the fresh air. Another suggests it has to do with being on the weather side of the ship – the side getting hit by a storm. That makes a little more sense. However, if top of the morning is supposed to be good, I guess under the weather must be bad, right? Well, that’s how I have been feeling and so have no been online much at all. I did, though, want to get this posted. It’s an adorable top and skirt I picked up at Y&R while I was shooting there with their adorable bears. The top has a prim to make it into a more baby-doll style, but I liked it better without.
