Coco has released all of their old doll heads, I recently read on Freestyle, and I couldn’t resist joining the group to see what they were like. I hadn’t ever tried them so I was anxious to see if I could make anything of them without the doll body. Continue reading
I have some friends who lived in Okinawa a few years ago and they always posted the most beautiful pictures. I will probably never have the pleasure of visiting there myself ,but that doesn’t mean I can’t pretend to visit there in SL. I was busy exploring profiles and tping to different shops I’d never heard of, in this case mostly Japanese stores, last night; I ended up running into the Okinawa Festival. I was thrilled. So many cute clothes, and gachas and lucky boards. All a dork like me could hope for! Here are some goodies I got.

It’s Friday Eve and that means it’s time for me to start thinking about heading over to my trailer park weekend home. I’m just raiding the cabinets for some snacks to take along.
Plus I need to go shopping. I always need to go shopping though.
Happy Friday Eve girls!

I never choose brown, yet I always like it when I wear it. Warm and cozy, comfortable, browns are delicious and earthy and now that I’m swaddled in them I’m happy. For now.
There is a football team called the Browns. I’ve always thought this was a terrible name. I can’t get behind a color. How can I feel the ferocious violence of a sports team, and scream at them to destroy the opponent when they are just called the Browns? I just can’t. This is why I WILL NEVER ROOT FOR YOU BROWNS! Well, also because I’m a Colts fan. But that’s another story. Continue reading
Lately I have been having more trouble shooting on location than usual, but I really wanted to get off my platform, so I hopped over to Sky Neist Point and found this little beach and took a few snaps. I was dressed for wandering with this lovely linen dress with embroidery from Gizza. The jacket is attached to the dress and has a HUD giving three color options for the jacket. The dress comes in six options, this Boho style in pink, blue or creme, gingham and a floral print. Continue reading
I am always excited when a blogger becomes a clothing designer. I think of Milla Michanaga who formed MichaMi and Elysium Elide who started elymode and recognize that both of them focused long and hard on construction quality. I think that, being bloggers, they had this pre-formed set of standards that created a daunting hurdle to overcome before they began to release. Having noted construction flaws in other work, they felt an obligation to do as they say and held themselves to higher standards. So, when Thalia Heckroth™ told me she was moving into clothing design, I was excited. This is her first release and I am pleased to say she continues the tradition.
I built a fort in my living room for no better reason than that I could. I brought my records and some snacks, and determined to live in my fort for the night. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
I was hearing the end of The Jerk in my head as I planned it. “And some watermelon, and this record player….and THAT’S ALL I NEED, and these sandwiches…”
If you’re old enough, you’ll laugh. Continue reading
If you plan on staying in, the Boudoir Collection at VoguE has a good selection to choose from for your “needs”. And for mine… I chose Dracy. Its mesh, but a see through chemise lets your gorgeous shape show through.

When I rezzed the Scarlet Creative Stargazer house in the sand, it immediately brought to mind the unforgettable house from Giant in the way it sat alone and defiant without any plants or trees to soften its edges and settle it into the environment.
This made me think of another great film inspired by the original, Robert Altman’s Come Back to the Five & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean. I may be branded a heretic for all time for this, but I much prefer the underrated Altman film to the much-honored classic that inspired it.
I think it was the performance by Sandy Dennis that made this film so memorable for me. It was the first time I had seen her in a film and she blew me away. I know the Stargazer house is much smaller and not as quaintly Victorian, but I am sure you can see how I made the connection.
…makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind….
Love Seals and Croft and that song just felt like it fit this mood. Standing on the beach at Black Basalt Beach, a beautiful sim to just hang out or surf (or take pictures). This post is dedicated to the summer themed items at Collabor88, which just opened on June 8th.
