The Curtain Closes on the Arcade Soon…but there is STILL TIME

More DIRE than the last call for alcohol is the last few hours of THE ARCADE. What didn’t you get yet? If you’re a blogger and you didn’t pull for these adorable decor items from Le Primtif you’re missing out. They are the perfect accoutrements to your studio – they all fell into my MUST HAVE list for sure. I’m also besieged by cats this morning from MUTRESSE – also still available at the ARCADE. My little corgi from Jian has become a staple at my house, you still have a few hours to grab yours as well. Continue reading

A Blogger’s Work is Never Done

No place like home

The Arcade ends tomorrow and if you’re a blogger, you really should drop by Le Primitif’s machine and give it a few pulls because it is a gift to bloggers. There’s a desk, a PC, a phone, a cup of coffee, shelving, boxes of unopened stuff to blog and even a clothing rack full of clothes to blog. The PC that you get shows the time, but I changed the desktop picture to match my own desktop. Here’s a link if you want the picture for your own desktop.

The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home

No place like home

My mom once said you can always tell how close someone feels to you when you visit them. If they sit you down in the living room, you’re not that close. If they sit you down at the kitchen table, you’re just like family. Of course, that presumes you live in a home with a kitchen big enough for a table of guests and not in an apartment with a kitchen that feels crowded when the cat comes in to watch you cook.

Fortunately, Barnesworth Anubis’s henlopen cottage from Collabor88 is big enough for kitchen friends. I added the beautiful cabinet from DRD’s Arcade gacha in the kitchen. It was a white white which made my kitchen walls look faded, so I tinted the wood. I love creators who let us do that.

The Arcade closes at midnight tomorrow so get going and get pulling because your time is running short.

Back in My Own Bed

No place like home

It’s funny how good it feels to sleep in your own bed again after traveling. It is not that any of the places I stayed had uncomfortable beds. They were all lovely, but sure enough, back in my own bed, I slept longer with fewer interruptions. Why? I think it must be the sounds. At both my sisters’ houses it was just too quiet. No cars passing, no sirens, no garbage trucks at 5 AM. Instead, it was silent except for the chirps and rattles of the martins, the long whistles of the cardinals and orioles, and the shrieks of blue jays. My one sister is quite a birder with special houses and feeders, though it was kind fun and frustrating watching a squirrel carrying off the oranges she put out for the orioles. This bed is from DRD, part of the wonderful romantic collection released for The Arcade. The lovely letter and rose petals came from Fancy Decor at The Arcade, but it is more fun to pretend they came from a long lost love.

Home Again

Home Again

I am back after traveling to Minnesota to visit my family. It was wonderful to see my sisters and my brother, my nieces, nephews, greats and great grands. Thirty three showed up last Saturday to visit despite 70% chance of rain. It rained. A lot. But we stood under trees and stayed dry, though the table of food looked quite forlorn. Fortunately, my clothing was drip dry, as is this delightful short and sassy dress from Hucci for Collabor88.

Feeling Beusy

I’ll admit I don’t stray from my tried and true stylists that often, I’m a creature of habit I am. But this month’s Collabor88 introduced me to a new to me stylist that I do like quite a bit – Beusy. Continue reading

Things That Go TOK In the Night

I was so wound up from my exciting and happy Friday that I just couldn’t sleep properly. I decided to read for a while to see if that calmed me down but you know then my mind got going with all the beautiful things I was seeing and I was even MORE awake. Continue reading
