I got dressed quickly this morning, with a list of errands and things I wanted to check out. I grabbed a new purse from The Annex (how cute is that?) and thought – I’ll quick post up those pics I shot days ago before our blog went down, and head out. All in all, ten minutes knocking out a blog post before hitting the road seemed like a great plan. After all, I want to go to a few events before RL Gidge has to hit the road.
That’s when it happened. My pictures, they weren’t in FLICKR. WHERE ARE MY PICTURES?
I walked around to my office and there they were, in my hard drive where I had left them. It seems I’d taken them but never cropped them. I also had done my great blogger mistake – I had changed my clothes and not saved any of my fashion details.
Did you hear that sound? That’s the sound of a blogger’s soul being wrenched apart by cruel fate. Continue reading →
RC Cluster is BAAAACK and she’s back bringing items to help you bring your SL a little more LIFE! I’m so excited to be able to pretend to wash dishes. Look how awesome I look. I’m not sweaty or annoyed at all. And I’ve got a lovely breakfast awaiting me when I’m done so really why wouldn’t I be happy to do a bit of cleaning? Continue reading →
Bloggers are notoriously messy creatures. Catch us outside the pages of our blogs and we’ve got on pieces of six outfits and no alpha layers. It’s true. No shoes, mismatched earrings, no hands – this is how we run around the grid, stopping to catch perfect moments only when we’re shooting.
It’s sort of hilarious.
Our bedrooms, if decorated realistically, would be no different.
Arcade June 2015 has once again proven to me that the creators at The Arcade KNOW me. They really really know me. They know I’m messy. They know I have too much make up and I’m not ashamed. They know, I have a lot of little bottles of things sitting around. And they love me for it.
I’m pausing as I absorb the amazing things available this round and trying to decide if I need to move house or how many more little things I can possibly shove into my house. I have to remodel my bath. That’s just got to happen.
What are your faves this round? I’m so excited, I can’t wait to bring you more, this is an amazing round. Get your clicking arm ready – there are lovely things to make your SL story even more your own.
My story is that of a blogger with too much stuff. They know me, they know me so well.
Arcade opens JUNE 1 – GET READY.

Don’t you love it when the sun is bright and streams in through the windows creating an interplay of light and shadow in your home? I know cats love it as they shift to follow the light. I am more a shade person and will shift from the sunlight into the shade, but I still love to see the beams of light moving across my home.
My dress is a super-feminine lace dress from Gizza called Cara. It is very demure and feminine from the front, though there is a bit of a surprise from the back as you shall see.
I am relaxing in the living room from my new cottage by dust bunny that I picked up at The Arcade. Through the windows you can see the greenhouse as well. The side tables and the pitcher of baby’s breath and the book on the far table are all from the dust bunny collection at The Arcade. Scarlet Creative’s Amelie sofa seems made for this sweet little cake of a house. I changed the pictures in the frames from the DRD frames I got at December’s Arcade. I thought it might be fun to put in old family photos, so the pictures are of my grandmother, great grandfather, great-great-great grandfather, a family reunion in 1901 and other old family photos.

I spent far too much getting this dress at The Arcade, but I console myself with knowing that the color-change HUD makes it several dresses in one. Besides, it has the prettiest color-change HUD in SL history.
Friday was the vernal equinox and it came with extras this year— a solar eclipse and a supermoon. Spring, however, came to Oregon long before the equinox. Already the daphnes and magnolias are in bloom. The air is rich with fragrance and spring’s showers paint everything a lush green. There is such an abundance of life in Oregon, all fed by the wonderful rain that if you live in Oregon, you must come to love.
The crazy thing about gardening in SL, I can have wisteria and magnolias at the same time as hibiscus and lavender, isn’t that amazing?
Oh the trials of a spoiled girl. I have to get up and get presentable because yet another shopping opportunity has presented itself. This one comes under the name 21 Shoe and it’s the much coveted 2 for 1 shoe sale at select stores across the grid. There is so much that you need to pick up this month, I’ll link to the Eloquence post HERE! Continue reading →
I woke up early and decided to get a jump on my holiday cards. So many people to mail off to! It’s easy to get a little work done when you’ve got so much peace and quiet, so I had to make sure I took advantage of the time. Of course, the cat and dog think otherwise. Continue reading →
Cajsa suggested I come over to Granny’s cottage for the weekend and with such a picturesque landscape to relax in, how could I resist?
Cajsa put me in charge of dinner while she went to to nap. That’s probably a mistake, because while I love to bake, I can’t cook for a damn. But I think pie and cookies counts as dinner right? We’re on vacation ! How can that be wrong? Continue reading →
