A very, very fine house

My House

I do not move houses very often in Second Life® or in real life. It is just too much work. However, when the Brooklyn Carriage House came out at Collabor88 last month, I could not resist its bright red doors and fine brickwork. I finally have everything arranged, but will be moving shortly. I thought I would share before I pack it all up. I love the house and how it looks, but I guess my four year old computer really cannot handle such an open floor plan where everything fezzes all the time. I need rooms and walls that limit the textures my computer has to handle, so I will be on my way to a more traditional space. That is totally a reflection of my computer’s age and is no criticism of the house – which is gorgeous, very, very gorgeous.

My outdoor decor is pretty limited, just a few shrubs and bushes from We’re Closed, a couple trees and the gorgeous deck from Lark that was released at The Liaison Collaborative a few month’s back.

At Days End – Uber Tea

If you’re like me, at the end of your pixel day you don’t feel like cooking usually. I strip down into my comfy lingerie and boudoir heels and just have  a cup and maybe a cookie or ten. Maybe a wee sandwich. There is not reason I can’t be civilized in my pixel life, and now you can too.

Molly’s Tea set will be available TOMORROW at UBER from Cheeky Pea. I’m showing off the SPRING colors but she’s also releasing a set in beautiful fall colors.  Continue reading

Go Brown. But not THE BROWNS.

I never choose brown, yet I always like it when I wear it. Warm and cozy, comfortable, browns are delicious and earthy and now that I’m swaddled in them I’m happy. For now.

There is a football team called the Browns. I’ve always thought this was a terrible name. I can’t get behind a color. How can I feel the ferocious violence of a sports team, and scream at them to destroy the opponent when they are just called the Browns? I just can’t. This is why I WILL NEVER ROOT FOR YOU BROWNS! Well, also because I’m a Colts fan. But that’s another story. Continue reading

Morning Coffee with Vic

My oldest friend in SL and I had coffee this morning and caught up. He’s one of my favorite people on the grid. He complained about how much stuff I have in my house and how it’s making him lag and I taunted him for how he was dressed and it was like old times.

After he finally left to go to bed – he’s still one of those up all night people while I have left those days firmly behind me, I decided to go check out Relay for Life.  Continue reading

After a Long Day At HAIR FAIR

My long night running the gauntlet of Hair Fair, in and out of every shop, buying, making plans to buy later, demoing, trying to look pretty, all of these things created an intense desire to find a mellow spot to relax and take in my spoils.

CHEEKY PEA has created a perfect summer spot for summer repose with the WHITBY set. You can pick it up at the Season’s Story event, and it’s a great spot to relax or hang out with friends. Delicious beverages are also available. Continue reading

In Dreams

I built a fort in my living room for no better reason than that I could. I brought my records and some snacks, and determined to live in my fort for the night. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I was hearing the end of The Jerk in my head as I planned it. “And some watermelon, and this record player….and THAT’S ALL I NEED, and these sandwiches…”

If you’re old enough, you’ll laugh. Continue reading
