Fresh Flowers

Summer in Paris

“She sprouted love like flowers,
Grew a garden in her mind,
And even on the darkest days,
From her smile the sun still shined.”

Fairy Photography

Fairy Photography(1)

My daughter, an only child, got married 2 weeks ago.  It was wonderful and bittersweet at the same time.  I am so proud of her and who she has become.  We live hundreds of miles apart and I miss her every day.  She and I went hunting for fairies often when she was little and being the creative child she was, she spent a good month one summer, making tiny articles of clothing for the fairies she was sure flitted around our house.  They were bits of twisted and tied fabric that I still have to this day.  She would lay them out near her bed each night, sometimes with a note, and every morning those tiny pieces of clothing had been scooped up by the fairies sometime in the night.  This beautiful pose by PosEd Poses was a sweet reminder of the childhood moments she and I shared.  Someday I hope she has a blond haired little beauty of her own and that they spend warm summer evenings hunting fairy boys and girls among the flowerbeds and trees.

If I Only Had A Brain

If I Only Had A Brain(1)

Considering The Wizard of Oz is my all time favorite movie, I am pretty partial to scarecrows.  Most people don’t know that The Wizard of Oz movie is actually based on just one of a  whole series of Oz books by Frank L. Baum.  There are 14 books in total and they have been my library for years!  The original book was published in 1900 and when MGM released the film adaption in 1939, they included in the credits a dedication that to this day touches me right in the heart.

“For nearly forty years this story has given faithful service to the Young in Heart; and Time has been powerless to put its kindly philosophy out of fashion. To those of you who have been faithful to it in return …and to the Young in Heart …we dedicate this picture.”

The sunflower field by TLC will add an instant touch of autumn to your home and includes 3 highly detailed, stand alone birds you will use all year round.  You can find my scarecrow buddy, created by  pose-S, at REDEUX, open now through the 21st.   He includes 5 poses and is a great decor piece even if you are not using him for photos.  GO ahead and climb on his back…it will keep you “young at heart”.

Furry Forest Fortunes

Furry Forest Fortunes

I’m a sucker for animals in clothes.  Perhaps this goes back to my childhood, when my most favorite stories were about Uncle Wiggily Longears, the rabbit gentleman and Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy, his muskrat housekeeper.  The stories were written by Howard R. Garis with the first one being published in 1912. There were multiple illustrators through the years and I have included some of my favorite art at the end of this post so be sure to scroll all the way down for the cuteness!

They were filled with bad guys like the Woozy Wolf and the Skillery Skallery Alligator as well as young forest friends like Lulu, Alice and Jimmie Wibblewobble, the duck children and Billie and Johnnie Bushtail, they squirrel boys.  The stories were entertaining, the characters were endearing and the artwork fascinating to my child eyes.

When I saw these little Halloween forest critters I knew I had to have them, a few of them at least.  They are part of the Trick or Treat gacha set by Ionic and are available at the October round of The Chapter Four.  There are 12 different designs and I am sure I will go back for another try at some of the others!

The Witching Hour

The Witching Hour 1

Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood to terrorize y’all’s neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell and rot inside a corpse’s shell

Thriller– Michael Jackson-

Make Your Own Trail

Make Your Own TrailHappy Friday everyone!  Shooting this picture made me want to get out and ride my bike, something I haven’t done in far too long.  The heat in the southern US makes it almost impossible in the summer but we are getting some cool evenings and I think its time to dust off the trusty bicycle.  Some of my most memorable bike rides where the ones where we ventured off the path to make a trail of our own.  We always saw wildlife, sometimes a creek and usually signs that someone else had also veered off the path to make discoveries of their own as well.  This adorable pose (bike included) is from PosEd Poses and is available at the Pose Fair going on now through the 31st.  Grab your virtual bicycle and head to the Pose Fair before it ends!

I Scream, You Scream!

Hair Fair 2018 BannerI Scream, You Scream!

From the title, it sounded like this blog was going to be about Halloween but I tricked you.  I think we all know the little rhyme “I scream, you scream, we all scream, for ice cream”  and if you are looking for something to scream about, let me remind you the Hair Fair is only open for 2 more days!!  I behaved myself this year and walked away with 4 new hairs, partly because I am so picky about my shade of blonde.  I am going to make one more trip over just to make sure I didn’t miss anything.  It’s for a great cause, with a minimum of 15% of purchases going to Wigs for Kids.  If you don’t need any hair you can make a donation at one of the many donation kiosks around the fair keeping in mind that 100% of kiosk donations go to Wigs for Kids.  It’s Second Life….bad hair days are not allowed!
