Fall Touches

Second Spaces brought some lovely fall decor to Collabor88 this month and I’m madly in love because it’s all ONE PIECE rather than 438954579 separate pieces that rez together and then you have to link them all yourself to move them.

I swear to you, there is a special hell for people who put their decor releases out like that.

I curse you, I do. Every time I realize I’m about to unpack something something that’s multiple items which are unlinked part of me dies inside.

That’s why Second Spaces is the bees knees. It really is. Continue reading

Clothes Make a Statement

Costumes tell a story.

I’ve  heard that saying, but I wonder if I’m always in costumes or clothes?  Regardless of that, I’ve spent my morning running around in an October fueled joy, because it’s pumpkin time and it’s Halloween time and leaves are turning.

It’s time for everything to change.

I hit the FLF hard and heavy this morning too, as evidenced by my pumpkins, dress and shoes. WORTH every penny.

Some people might tell you it’s too soon to start Halloween dressing and decorating.

We call such people bad friends and recommend you limit your exposure to them. No one needs that kind of negativity.

I Love Summer

Good afternoon girls, how’s your Friday going? I’ve got some shopping to do it looks like, but I wanted to hop in and remind all of you that everyone’s favorite monthly event COLLABOR88 is still happening. I know I know, our beloved Arcade is kicked off and I’m just as excited as you – really the cross over of those two events quarterly is a bit like shopping nirvana but, end of the month at Collabor88 is BLISS.

A Reason To Lounge

Collabor88 an Second Spaces gave me a whole new reason to chill out and do nothing in Second Life and once again, I’m perfectly ok with that. New lounge chairs for the pool weren’t a need but hey WHAT IS A NEED ANYWAY? I don’t even know. I’m in the mood for a nothing day so I invited you to indulge as well with some adorable sandals from Fri.Day and a perfect summer chill out hair do from EXILE you can also pick up at Collabor88.

In Riding a Horse, We Borrow Freedom

In Riding a Horse, We Borrow Freedom

I thought I blogged this a week ago. Oops! First, I have to deal with the quote I used for the title. The internet is a disaster for quote lovers and this is an example of why. Which Helen Thompson? My guess this quote may have come from the wife of the race horse trainer, David Thompson. I am pretty darn sure it did not come from this Helen Thompson and by the way, I am even more sure that fifth quote is also one that belongs to the woman whose life was in racing, not the psychologist studying gender differences who was born in 1874.

Rescued

“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.”

My great-niece recently rescued a couple horses from a kill pen, the third generation of horse rescuers in my family. Kill pen horses are usually sold for pet food because they are considered problematic, untrainable, vicious and dangerous. They usually require a level of training most people just will not invest. In time, though, they can learn to trust and be trusted. If you want to see the evidence, see my great-grand niece cleaning this rescued horse’s hooves just two weeks into training…and the foundations for a fourth generation of rescuers begins. It was thinking about them, the work they are doing, and that two other nieces are doing, that I thought I might take this month’s house from Barnesworth for Collabor88 and set up a farm. I tinted it, one of the things I love about Barnesworth homes.

Old Enemies New Friends

I have, multiple times, realized I was so SLold that I could no longer quite fully recall why I disliked someone. Early days of plurk wars, SCD wars, fashion drama left so much in their wake in terms of scorched earth and friendships destroyed. Lines were drawn so long ago between camps that I can no longer recall why they were drawn, nor which camp I actually belong to.

I’m failing at partisanship.

It would be meaningful if I could recall why I didn’t like him, but I can’t and lately I find him rather friendly and nice and I’m finally SLold enough that I don’t feel a strong need to AGREE with or APPROVE of everyone I meet.

Thus, now I’m friends with Sands.

He and I are both done with all those things from the past, apparently, because we had a lovely chat and he gave me some pants. He also gave me a jacket. He’s a gentleman like that. (Okay he’s NOT but let me be artistically creative alright?)

It’s also kinda cool when you look up and someone you’ve known for years is suddenly quite talented and making things. That’s the case here, and his brand Azuchi doesn’t disappoint. These pants, which can you pick up at UBER) are really lovely, richly textured and they fit like a dream. I really do like these, they are a must have for your pants wardrobe girls.

It’s probably end times, when Sands and are are friends. Or – maybe it’s how it’s supposed to be and all those other people were the douchebags after all.

History really does point to the latter.

No, I’m not banging him. STOP THINKING IT. God you’re rude.

Now, go shopping. GET IT! You know you need some new leather pants.
