I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.

I stopped by Orchid yesterday. What a lovely place to visit. There are deer, horses, and birds chirping away in a rustic winter wonderland that made me think of Alice talking to her cat, Dinah.

Do you hear the snow against the window-panes, Kitty? How nice and soft it sounds! Just as if someone was kissing the window all over outside. I wonder if the snow LOVES the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

If you’re not feeling sleepy, though, this fun skater’s dress from ISON at Collabor88 is a winner in eight gorgeous colors. ISON also presented coordinating Nordic sweaters to wear over it, but I was drawn to this fur hoodie from Xen’s Hats for the Instruments. It also comes in several colors, but the white one is my favorite.

Pajamarama

New pajamas from Sn@tch and a cute bed loaded with poses for you or friends are just some of the fun items available at MY ATTIC this round.  The bed is called the SLEEPOVER bed and so if you’ve got a couple of girlfriends over, it’s perfect for some fun pictures. I also love that it’s got several textures available – you can mix up your decor options. Continue reading

At home with the macabre

“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”

I do not decorate my home for Halloween and only add a bouquet of colored glass bulbs and a gold tabletop Christmas tree for Christmas. My apartment is small and I don’t waste my limited storage space storing decorations. My second life, though, seems to have infinite storage space so I love to decorate there. Also, it’s much less work to pack up and move and also less expensive. Here,then is my home for fall inspired in part by the macabre aesthetic of Tim Burton. I began by tinting my Tabor Cottage from Barnesworth to saturated dark colors instead of the natural stucco that it was originally. There’s a barn in the background with a few animals and a dock on the water.

I added this prop fence from Vespertine because I loved the bright colors and though it did not add anything macabre to the home, I liked the colors and the idea of it. Not everything needs to be macabre.   Continue reading

Sonatta Morales has five special releases for Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week which opens on May 16th. I always look forward to Fashion Week. There are always more innovative and avant garde releases for Fashion Week, as though the event challenges the designers to do their best work of the season. Here is the official schedule for Fashion Week. There are 16 fashion shows coming up – a great week full of fashion.

Last year Whimsy Winx and Sasy Scarborough released on of their collaborations called Papier de Mode. It came with two pose sets, one with these pieces of paper with different bits of text and one blank. For fun, I added the Fashion Week logo and a few  words to the prop. I love it when a prop can be modified.

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em

0521_011

Kenny Rogers old classic, The Gambler, has good advice for all of us. Three hundred and eighty years earlier, Shakespeare offered the same advice from Falstaff who said “The better part of valor is discretion.” Of course, if we all knew when to hold them, we could all be rich professional gamblers. One thing that I will be holding is this adorable Marine bikini from Mag Continue reading

Flowers In My Attic (not in THE attic)

sep21_003

 

Please don’t confuse Flower in My Attic with the books. This recent My Attic cycle is a celebration of beauty and the effervescent abundance of flowers. Is there anyone who is not moved by the sheer exuberance of flowers? Isn’t it wonderful that these plants have such a lovely, giving way to propagate? Of course, since I love pose props, I had to check out Whimsy Winx’s latest for My Attic and her attic does not disappoint, though really, someone should pick up once in a while. There are papers all over the floor. I was also playing around with a projector I am working on to sell on Marketplace. It’s not done yet because I am still thinking about whether I have the spacing right. Yes, it’s just 1 prim with a texture, but I can still have creative difficulties like a real creator, hahaha!!

This outfit is from Lacuna and is also for My Attic (the floral shorts could be considered a clue). Because it’s an extra special cool top, you get two versions. This top is peach and jade. The other is jade and peach.  I had to add 2 notches to the gravity on my breasts to fit it, but perhaps I notched them up a bit for something else.
