13/05/2018 – Pink and teal make pretty

I am not feeling overly inspired to write anything today, but I wanted to show you a few gorgeous things that I found these past few weeks, at events, stores, or buried deep in my inventory. I’ll start with the hair. I’ve been in the Truth VIP group since the very beginning of the new concept, and some months I barely logged in, or if I did I was too busy with other things to really check what the gift was. So when I found Ginevra, last November’s gift, I just went wow. The super pretty glasses are free from Balaclava, they were the demo for this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer. Make sure to check FaMESHed this month if you haven’t yet, the Tres Blah dress is yet another little wonder.

Tick, Tock. Arcade O’Clock.

Tick, Tock, It's Soon Arcade O'Clock
The Arcade opens in just over three hours. December if my favorite month for The Arcade. The holidays seems to inspire such whimsy and grace. Also, since everything is No Copy for trading, it’s a great place to buy gifts. My outfit comes from Collabor88 items (except the fun candycane tights that were a Christmas gift from Alaska Metro last year. Sorry, I am an evil blogger, but not totally evil, they are on marketplace.

We Say POP

Where this pixel girl hails from we say POP. Pop means any carbonated drink. We do enjoy it, and “Could I get a pop or a diet pop” is a common conversation piece around those parts. I saw this pose prop at REWIND and while I’m not normally MUCH of pose prop purchaser (that’s Cajsa) I have to admit, this once caught my fancy. Continue reading

A Perfect Day To Grill

It was a perfect day for a nap, in fact naps were already in progress, when I realized I was incredibly hungry. There was nothing for it but to make some food and I just HAPPEN to have a new grill!

But what to cook? Continue reading

Building dikes to hold back the tides of fear

We must build dikes of courage to hold back the tides of fear.

Free, unrestrained and unhindered.

“the things in our control are by nature free, unhindered, and unobstructed"

Epictetus wrote in the Enchiridion, “The things in our control are by nature free, unrestrained, unhindered.” We control our own actions, words, opinions, what we like, what we don’t like, and what we want. If we stick to what we control, he suggests, we are free of restraint. It is when we try to influence the things outside our control that we are trapped. It’s good advice. The difficulty is figuring out what we can control.

That’s been on my mind a lot. There’s a lot I don’t like happening, but what can I control? I can choose despair or resistance, that’s up to me. I need to focus on what I can do, not what I wish would happen. So even though I feel like kicking more than an exercise bag, I will instead focus my mind and my heart on resisting despair.

Hello Cold Weather

Hello Cold Days

December is here and that means Christmas! and The Arcade! and it is up for debate which is more exciting. It’s so easy to go the red and green route for the holidays, but I resisted, buoyed by the gorgeous Camellia lights from {anc} over in the corner. I went for pinks and turquoises, think Miami meets Idaho. I liberally used the edit menu to tint my furnishings just a bit and even retexture a few things such as the runner on the side table. I know it’s a blend of modern and traditional that should clash, but it doesn’t. I think of Simon de Pury when I decorate, “Be bold, be brave, be amazing.” Why not mix modern settees with traditional cupboards and folk art and deco end tables? If you can make harmony of contradiction, then it’s not just bold, it is amazing.

It’s The Little Things Which Irritate

I have no reason for complaint today. I’ve got a beautiful new vanity set from SOY at Collabor88, amazing new jewelry, hair and dress from Collabor88 and really this pixel girl has no reason for for annoyance.

The world is my oyster, the world is my delicious sandwich made to order.

Yet, my annoyance today slithers into my sights from a flickr group from which I got a flickr mail a long time ago. I should, in fact, leave this group. I can never remember to. I’m a busy pixel girl, these toes aren’t going to paint themselves you know, and so I get busy and forget.

I also don’t generally READ flickr mail so if you send me one, be prepared for it to be six months before I see it.  Continue reading

A-Frame Life

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Growing up on a resort lake with twenty-one year round residents, but thousands of weekenders who flood the lake and live in the more the hundreds of lakefront cabins that are empty most of the year, I am very familiar with A-frames. Lots of people bought A-Frame kits or pre-made A-Frames, much faster than the old-fashioned bungalow style cabins that signal older homes on the lake. This A-Frame from Barnesworth Anubis has an advantage over many of the lake front cabins as the ceiling rests on a short bit of vertical wall. The A-frames on the lake often did not have that bonus, which often meant a lot of space behind the couch when it was shoved against the wall and sometimes a clunk on your head. A-frame weekenders almost never came for winter ice-fishing, their cabins hard to heat with what heat they had rising to the ceiling and escaping from the lakefront windows. But they sure are pretty when you’re out in the canoe late at night, all the light from their wall of windows facing the lake, so bright and illuminated in contrast to the smaller windows on the bungalows. Kind of like big jewels in a necklace of smaller stones.

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

A-frame homes are very open plan. After all, walls interfere with the loft of those high ceilings. Here a rug and the Scarlet Creative Venice couch back serve to mark space for dining from space for lounging.  Lots of plants along the windows are a requirement when you have that kind of window exposure. Otherwise, you would be wasting the sunshine, wouldn’t you?
