Nine more hours to pull your heart out. I am particularly fond of the YS & YS buffet. It’s very retro-mod. Don Draper might have it in his living room.
My mom once said you can always tell how close someone feels to you when you visit them. If they sit you down in the living room, you’re not that close. If they sit you down at the kitchen table, you’re just like family. Of course, that presumes you live in a home with a kitchen big enough for a table of guests and not in an apartment with a kitchen that feels crowded when the cat comes in to watch you cook.
Fortunately, Barnesworth Anubis’s henlopen cottage from Collabor88 is big enough for kitchen friends. I added the beautiful cabinet from DRD’s Arcade gacha in the kitchen. It was a white white which made my kitchen walls look faded, so I tinted the wood. I love creators who let us do that.
The Arcade closes at midnight tomorrow so get going and get pulling because your time is running short.
It’s funny how good it feels to sleep in your own bed again after traveling. It is not that any of the places I stayed had uncomfortable beds. They were all lovely, but sure enough, back in my own bed, I slept longer with fewer interruptions. Why? I think it must be the sounds. At both my sisters’ houses it was just too quiet. No cars passing, no sirens, no garbage trucks at 5 AM. Instead, it was silent except for the chirps and rattles of the martins, the long whistles of the cardinals and orioles, and the shrieks of blue jays. My one sister is quite a birder with special houses and feeders, though it was kind fun and frustrating watching a squirrel carrying off the oranges she put out for the orioles. This bed is from DRD, part of the wonderful romantic collection released for The Arcade. The lovely letter and rose petals came from Fancy Decor at The Arcade, but it is more fun to pretend they came from a long lost love.
VINTAGE FAIR is happening and I’m lounging in a new release from FISSION, who is still a mainstay of classic couture in my wardrobe. There aren’t a lot of retro fashion designers of consistent quality, Ingenue and Fission area always at the top of my list. Continue reading
The Arcade is opening at midnight and when that happens, many of you will feel like these adorable critters from Mutresse and Half-Deer. The Mutresse kitty cat is even scripted to furiously scratch at the door, “Let me in! Let me in!”
Meanwhile, Collabor88 is in its last week, so you can leisurely stroll in and pick up the pretties like this gorgeous dress from Zenith. Zenith also released coordinated purses, but who wears a purse lounging on a day bed. This one is from Mudhoney and is at The Arcade. The dress has a hud to change the shirt and bra that you can see under the dress. I added a bandana from katat0nik because it’s adorable.
Speaking of adorable. The Pure Poison shoes are at Collabor88 and can be customized to the nth degree. The chihuahua is from The Arcade (Half-Deer) and is named Toodles. My brother always had a Chihuahua and every one was named Toodles, Toodles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I have no idea why.
My budget was very small this month so I feel very lucky to get this lovely travel caravan from Dust Bunny on the third or fourth pull. I don’t remember exactly, but I felt very lucky. The lace awning makes a great place for a bit of outdoor living with a daybed and dining table.
Tomorrow is June and before you know it the Summer Solstice and hot sunny days of lazing by the lake and relaxing will be upon us. There is everything you could want for some great summer beach side vacations at The Arcade

Gemütlichkeit is a world I picked up from this wonderful web site I found the other day. Even it it means you wander away for hours, I want you to check you out. It’s a collection of untranslatable words. Words that convey concepts, that have no equivalent in our language, at least not in a single word. It is fun.
I am wearing the dress I wore in my last blog post, in a print this time. It comes in a solid or print version with six options in the texture huds. My last post was nothing but head shots, so I wanted to show you the back which is just so adorable. The house is the San Clemente from Barnesworth Anubis. It’s a great house and I will show you around inside, but the name makes me think of Richard Nixon, since that was where he was from.
I knew what I wanted before I found it. I wanted windows. I wanted sleek and square and modern. Luckily Barnesworth Anubis had already created it so it was there for the rezzing. I can’t decide how to decorate and I’m partially considering not putting out anything old in it. Well, I’m considering it.
I probably won’t. In fact even as I was decorating this morning I did already yet – I kind of love the thought. Fresh clean start for the summer is appealing, you know? Continue reading
