You Like My Loving Machine

It’s another day of exploring at Backdrop City for me. I have found no less than five new creators I need to support with my $$ and I’ll be going shopping soon. If you’re like me, you like to own a lot of backdrops to set up fun scenes for blogging the creations of our world. Continue reading

A Chill Touches the Air

The day comes every season when you awake and realize the chill has crept into your house. That’s a pet peeve of mine, being cold in my own house is unacceptable.

I need to get up and moving – I need to grocery shop for the big meal. I still don’t have a headcount – who’s coming over anyway? Digital people are terrible with their RSVPs I swear.  Continue reading

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

If I Waited

The Great Gatsby declared that No Sir, the right girl wouldn’t wait at all. She’d move on, it seems. She wouldn’t wait for your dumb ass to catch up with her, or get in sync. She’d never wait for someone who didn’t pull into her lane and come along.

There may be wisdom in that, but there’s heartbreak too. Gatsby then spends his life chasing Daisy and we all know where that lead him.

Personally I did end up having to wait a few days for my typist to show back up but then I was put in mind to wonder what else I’ve been waiting on. Beginnings or endings? Which is it?

It doesn’t matter, because time continues to roll and I’m going with it, it seems.

I’m decked out in some goodies you can still pick up at Collabor88 this month, which is perfect because you need them and this event is, as always, chocked full of goodness. But don’t wait on this one.

After all, the right girl wouldn’t wait for anyone.

The Things You Forget

It’s funny what you forget, and what you remember, over ten years time. Asked recently to recollect my days in SL, the arc of my existence in pixel space, and the story flowed.  But what struck me wasn’t the fails, the losses, the friends who turned out to be flakes and went their way.

No, it was the constancy of the right people – when you are lucky enough to meet them. Continue reading

Collabor88 Fashions & Book Reviews Too

In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth

I spent the afternoon at The Trace Too, using all the seating there for my poses. I hopped on scooter and a bench that were on-site. I went there to make a video blog about a book I had just finished reading.

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.
