Snow Jedi

Cajsa put up a new house and I had to come over to check it out. My problem is that I get one house up and don’t want to change. Yet – I love the idea of being able to mix stuff up all the time. I am strongly now officially considering changing houses.  Especially when I walk through the beautiful work of Barnesworth Anubis and think of all the decorating possibilities. This lovely Hever manor house is still available at Collabor88. You can pick it up and pretend you’re a Boleyn! Continue reading

And the World Turns Round and Round


So today has been an emotional one. A year ago today my sister died after a long battle with cancer. Today, her granddaughter brought her first great-grandchild – an entirely new generation – into the world. Isn’t that magical? She was due last week, but she waited several days to arrive on the most perfect day she could. So forgive me for not describing much, it’s hard to see the screen through tears, though they are more happy ones than sad ones.

Come Into My Parlor

When on the breath of autumn's breeze

I kinda sorta fell in love with the top and skirt from United Colors at Collabor88 this month. This month’s theme is Autumn’s Breath, possibly inspired by Mary Howitt’s Cornfields. Howitt’s big contribution was The Spider and the Fly so it seems a good time to shoot some pictures in my parlor and show off my shoes from Ingenue. <grin>

 “WHEN on the breath of autumn breeze,
From pastures dry and brown,
Goes floating like an idle thought
The fair white thistle-down,
Oh then what joy to walk at will 5
Upon the golden harvest hill!

When on the breath of autumn's breeze

Vacation Shot

I wandered around Sansar the other day and was struck by it’s amazing beauty. I’ll post about it and share soon. It reminded me, however, how lovely our own virtual world can be. It’s easy to forget.

I thought I would show you a pic of my lazy summer vacation to share, and I left it on default windlight to boot. Here is our pretty SL – with no edits, just raw from my screen.

It’s pretty lovely.

Bringing Color and Wonder

I looked across the lake and found that Cajsa has tinted a new house from Barnesworth Anubis that you can pick up at Collabor88 to a striking RED color. I’m so in love with it that I’m envious I didn’t think of it myself.

It was rather lovely to wake up to, I have to admit. Continue reading


“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.”

My great-niece recently rescued a couple horses from a kill pen, the third generation of horse rescuers in my family. Kill pen horses are usually sold for pet food because they are considered problematic, untrainable, vicious and dangerous. They usually require a level of training most people just will not invest. In time, though, they can learn to trust and be trusted. If you want to see the evidence, see my great-grand niece cleaning this rescued horse’s hooves just two weeks into training…and the foundations for a fourth generation of rescuers begins. It was thinking about them, the work they are doing, and that two other nieces are doing, that I thought I might take this month’s house from Barnesworth for Collabor88 and set up a farm. I tinted it, one of the things I love about Barnesworth homes.
