Ocean Breeze

Featuring Juna at Redeux

We are seriously considering renting a houseboat this summer and spending at least an extended weekend on the water, cooking on the grill and soaking up the sun.  My uncle lives on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky and it is just beautiful…and has houseboat rentals!  We are moving next month also though…and I have grand ideas for my new house..lol!  We shall see…but vacation is sorely needed!

I Scream, You Scream

I Scream, You Scream

Featuring [Fetch] and CAZIMI

Recently I discovered Hagendaz Green Tea ice cream and though it may sound gross, especially since I dislike most tea, it is actually delicious.  It’s very light, not too sweet and perfect after dinner.

Featured here are new Pearlized Nails by CAZIMI and great new flower earrings from [Fetch].  The nailpolish is available at the current round of Redeux and the Hannah earrings are at the new mainstore event, Palette.

I like the idea of Palette.  It’s a monthly event that features a color theme but the items are at each creators mainstore and they are 100L or less!  There is also a free HUD to make your shopping easier!  Palette deals end on the 22nd so don’t miss out!

It’s also the 2nd anniversary round of Redeux which means special VIP gifts and also a photo contest.  Redeux ends on the 21st!

Saturday Morning Cartoons

Saturday Morning Cartoons

Featuring Lyrium and [Krescendo]

I have been doing a good bit of reminiscing this past week, sharing memories with my family and was reminded how simple life was when we hopped up on Saturday morning and spent the next several hours watching our favorite cartoons.  Actually cartoons is not really accurate because most of my favorites were not animated at all.

On the screen in this photo was the one and only H.R. Pufnstuf!  It was a favorite along with Lidsville, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, Land of the Lost, Electra-Woman and Dynagirl and Dr. Shrinker, none of which were actually animated!  Scooby Doo and Bugs Bunny were at the top of the list in the animated category.

I have found almost all of these shows have episodes on YouTube.  Tomorrow I think I will start my morning with some terribly sweet cereal (do they still make Apple Jacks) and a little bit of the good old days in the form of Sigmund, some sleestaks and Chaka and a little bit of Witchypoo!  Who needs to wait for Saturday!

So “Eggcited”

So _Eggcited_

Featuring Aphrodite Shop

It looks like the Easter Bunny has gotten a little too “eggcited” and is going overboard with his egg hiding.  Let’s hope there’s a bottom to that pot or we may have to head to China to find that one.  Easter is right around the corner!!  Have you got your decorating done?  This adorable pot with bunny legs is perfect for your porch, patio, foyer or even a shelf.  It is resize-able so you can really use it anywhere!

Sunshine On My Shoulder

Sunshine On My Shoulder

Featuring Promagic and Fashiowl Poses

I started this picture the other day…the day before I found out my dad had passed away.  Of course Second Life was put to the back burner as I made travel arrangements, talked to family, etc.  If you read my blog, you know my dad had a stroke right before Christmas and just kept having complications that left his health slowly deteriorating so the news was at least not a complete shock, though is was just as devastating.  I may have also mentioned that I moved from Michigan to the southern US, Alabama actually, and have ZERO family here.  Its just me and my husband who has been my rock.

The sitting around and waiting is probably the worst thing so I pulled this photo back up and went to editing.  I thought a lot about my dad as I was editing, not really focusing, just letting my fingers work.  The photo is bright and cheerful, a bright spot in my mind….perhaps a message from my dad, who was also very creative, to do my best not to be sad.  Then my brother said the same thing to me…”Dad would not want us to be sad”….and he’s right.  Of course sadness is expected, and important actually, to grieve and let the pain escape and I have shed an enormous amount of tears….but later this afternoon, I will start my road trip to Kentucky and say my “until later” tomorrow….rain is forecast…but I am going to do my best to keep sunshine on my shoulder.  I love you daddy!

D is for Donkey

D is for Donkey

Featuring |T|L|C| Home Collection

More goodies from |T|L|C| Home Collection.  This time we have adorable donkeys!  I love when a creators design sparks a wonderful memory and that has happened with both of TLC’s recent designs.

If you follow my blog you know that yesterday I featured the little goats from TLC and I almost named that photo “Goats Gobble Garbage”, which was a cute child’s alphabet song that my daughter and I used to sing together when she was just a little girl.  Today’s photo reminds me of a memory from my own childhood.

My mother, a longtime collector of antiques and collectibles, has a set of milk glass mugs that feature a letter of the alphabet along with a little poem on them.  Most every weekend my mom made a big breakfast that included homemade cocoa using the recipe on the side of the Hershey’s Cocoa Powder box and my sister and I would take turns picking which mug we were drinking out of that day.  “D is for Donkey” was always a favorite.  I still remember the little poem well and am happy to share the memory.

D is for Donkey
He’s strong and so wise
and so very gentle
a ride I advise

Thanks for the memories |T|L|C|! Happy Friday everyone!
