I’m a huge fan of Trompe Loeil houses. I tend to get in one house, however, and stay it in for quite a while. I decorate like mad and I just can’t stand having to start over again. I liked this winter lodge Trompe Loeil released recently, but from my first glace I thought “Oh it’s not for me but I’ll blog it.”
Then I stood inside it.
Sometimes the magic is in the light. Sometimes the view is what takes your breath away and you realize that if you woke up every day with the sun pouring into these windows, you’d feel the warmth of that pixel ball even though such a thing is impossible. Continue reading →
I love Christmas. I love all of the events that pop up AROUND Christmas which then enable me to festoon, YES FESTOON my house with joy and love. I live here quietly with my pets and my little baby that sometimes I get out for fun, and honestly it’s a good SL.
I went wandering in search of winter and holiday fun yesterday. I found a lovely sim – really a bit of a bloggers paradise in terms of great little spots to shoot. It’s also a great little spot just to be with tons of great little winter activities scattered throughout.
I stopped by the Christmas tree lot and wished I had considered a real tree for my own home. Hmmm, do I have room for another tree? I wonder…nah. I really don’t. But it’s fun to consider for sure.
I wandered and enjoyed the scenery for quite a while, enjoying a holiday coffee and just soaking in how beautiful SL can be some days. It’s too bad you can’t smell the things here – I know how crisp this snowy landscape would smell, and the way the sounds would all be hushed by the deep layers of white fluff. I missed that, I’m glad winter has returned.
Today I’m wearing part of the amazing winter set from Osmia for The Arcade. I feel like this creator must have a strong love of winter adventures given how lovely the entire set is. It’s designed for a winter wander and fun in snowy, cold climate. I love it. Continue reading →
Good morning girls. I’m slow moving, trying to get out of bed this morning, but when I’m surrounded by my pretty pink bed it’s difficult to get out and out and away like I should. I’m exhausted from the Arcade preview and excited at the same time. It’s a great round. Continue reading →
I had some fun with mix and matching items from this moth’s COLLABOR88 while doing my stupid work this weekend. While it’s always easiest just to slap things together the way one finds them on the vendor ad, it’s always been a passion of ours at IOF to mix things up a bit when we can. Continue reading →
Rilke was right to note that the new year would be full of things that have never been. Every new year brings us innovation, discovery and change. In that, every new year brings us something to hope for despite looming dangers. Despite the many losses that have made 2016 a bitter and sorrowful year, I fear we may look back on it with longing as the Grand Panjandrum takes the oath he will break that very day and every day that follows.
Tomorrow will follow tomorrow and time goes forward inexorably. All we can do, then, as we teeter on the edge of the abyss, is resist despair, resist defeat and find sanctuary in community, in beauty, and in certain knowledge that the arc of the moral universe may have gotten a kink in it, but it still bends toward justice.

I had a brief bout with homelessness yesterday. Funny, in my early days of SL – suddenly not having my own space would have made me feel panicked – even unsafe. But yesterday I thought “Eh, this’ll sort” and went wandering. I found my way over to Amatorum and I hadn’t visited it’s new incarnation, I’m rather delighted at how lovely it is again. It’s a little bloggers dream in terms of vignettes for shooting pictures. Continue reading →
