Seek and Ye Shall Find


Seek and ye shall find;
knock and the door shall be open;
ask and it shall be given
and the love come a trickling down.

That was one of my favorite childhood songs was from a decrepit album of my sisters called The Womenfolk. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of them. No one’s heard of them. Incredibly, though, I found the song by them on YouTube. It was an old album and it appealed to my five year old sensibilities with some nonsense songs sprinkled in with traditional folk songs. I played it over and over until it was worn out. Despite its religious theme, it still appeals to me and when I find myself feeling impatient and frustrated, I will still sing the chorus to remind myself that patience is virtue worth holding onto hard and fast. Certainly a good theme song for hunts.

Since it was from a hunt, I decided to shoot at Hide and Seek. It’s a lovely sim, though I had to turn my music off because every step seems to put me in a different music parcel. It was very weird musically.


A few years ago, Gidge and I did a couple hunts of 100 stores or so. Funny thing, though, I never unpacked the items and they sat in a folder in my inventory reminding me that hunts are not for me. There’s a couple reasons for this. Once the hunt is over, I don’t want to blog the items since I try to avoid blogging things that readers won’t be able to get for themselves if they wish. I make a few exceptions for some gloves and leggings that I will hold onto forever. People don’t just read today’s post, but half the views each day are from posts from long ago and far away. The second reason is that events are so very well covered in the blogs. There are several blogs that focus heavily on sales and hunts such as The SL Circadian, Seraphim,  and Shopping Cart Disco. But then I saw this jacket!


People talk about how something speaks to them. They usually mean it appeals to their aesthetic sense. This jacket spoke to me. I heard its bell-like tone loudly proclaim, “Cajsa, if you don’t get your ass down to the Secret Store and pick me up, you’re gonna be sorry. Now, get up, log in and find me, dammit.” So I did! I won’t spoil the fun of the seek, but let me just say that when I found it I smiled at how artfully it was arranged to fool the eye. That is one of the fun elements of hunts I had forgotten, the clever way some pieces were hidden in plain sight. Sometimes they were harder to find than the infuriating ones hidden in secret rooms, but I always laughed when I found them. This is a laugh when you find it hiding spot.


Everything about this jacket appeals to me. I love the bold colors and its retro pop style combined with the modern shape. I love the technical skill that makes the collar fit beautifully and the jacket prim meet with the collar prim so that turquoise piping meets as it should. And I love that it will be so flexible – to wear with dresses, pants or skirts. In this case, I added a pencil skirt from MichaMi and a top from artilleri. The shoes are from Anexx and sad to say, they are from a Designers United event and no longer available. They lead to these dilemmas between styling and blogging – and this time I chose styling.


The asymmetric jewelry from Je Suis… worked perfectly. Of course, they showed a bit under the collar, but for the photo I just used hide selected to derender the one necklace prim that showed under the collar. The skin is from Tres Blah and the hair is from Truth, the new Isla style.
