I Need A Snack to Give Me ARCADE Level Strength

I’m having snacks and hot drinks because The ARCADE opens up in 48 hours and I am going to need all of my strength. This round is another amazing feat of must have items, and I’m super impressed with all of the MENS items this round. I need a man in my house to decorate for. Except that I don’t really, I don’t want to give up my prims to ANYONE. They are my precious. Continue reading

Black Friday

I don’t believe in Black Friday. I can’t imagine withholding my need to buy whatever I want for one day a year. I believe firmly in wanton consumerism 365 days a year. I want everything.  So I am an anomaly and don’t shop madly on Black Friday.  Continue reading

Rise and Shine

This is my face every morning when I have to wake up.  Waking up doesn’t agree with me. I like going out and doing things but ugh the waking up part isn’t for me.  Continue reading

At home with the macabre

“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”

I do not decorate my home for Halloween and only add a bouquet of colored glass bulbs and a gold tabletop Christmas tree for Christmas. My apartment is small and I don’t waste my limited storage space storing decorations. My second life, though, seems to have infinite storage space so I love to decorate there. Also, it’s much less work to pack up and move and also less expensive. Here,then is my home for fall inspired in part by the macabre aesthetic of Tim Burton. I began by tinting my Tabor Cottage from Barnesworth to saturated dark colors instead of the natural stucco that it was originally. There’s a barn in the background with a few animals and a dock on the water.

I added this prop fence from Vespertine because I loved the bright colors and though it did not add anything macabre to the home, I liked the colors and the idea of it. Not everything needs to be macabre.   Continue reading

Space Love

There is a gift to making houses. I’m so spoiled and picky that once I find myself in a house with poky walls where I find my camera running into trouble regularly, I abandon them post-haste. I can’t be bothered with houses that I can’t cam about in comfortably.

That’s probably why, despite some fun shaped rooms that might seem to be potential camera problems, I am in love with my twin treehouses.  I make the living/sleeping quarters in one half with an alcove for my bath, and the other house is solely for kitchen and dining. It’s a bit like a summer house with the kitchen separate due to the heat. Continue reading

Crazy Days of Disarray

I could leave one picture here and have you think I’m mostly settled into my new SLife, that I’m not living out of boxes and trying to sort out where my things are or what should go where in my new house.

This would be a lie. Continue reading
