Mojito Magic

Mojito Magic

Featuring Sway’s and [InsurreKtion]

Summer is coming….When the sun begins to fade you will take my hand and lead me to the patio.  You will light a fire, not for warmth but for mood, as the summer air has left the evening warm.  You turn on some music to set the tone and pour us each a chilled mojito , made with the perfect amount of lime and mint leaves.  We watch in silence as the sun sinks to meet the horizon, the music playing softly in the background while the sounds of the evening fill the air.  Summer is coming….

Ingredients

10 fresh mint leaves

1/2 lime, cut in 4 wedges

2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste

1 cup ice cubes

1 1/2 oz. of white rum

1/2 cup club soda

Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.

Boots & Bacon Seeds

Boots & Bacon Seeds

Featuring Yasum & |T|L|C| Home Collection

I had to laugh as I was titling this photo and at the same time cringed a bit.  My husband, who knows what an animal lover I am, often refers to baby pigs as bacon seeds just to get a reaction out of me.  Don’t get me wrong, I love bacon but would never knowingly eat any meat that came from a baby animal.  Maybe its the mother instinct in me or maybe I am just weird! LOL  Anyway, it is a cute name for some cute creations.

The boots are by Yasum and are available at REDEUX which just started today and will run thru the 21st.  The detail and texture work are just beautiful and of course there are color choices as well as color options for the socks.  A must have for your winter wardrobe.

My sweet…tasty..I mean, just sweet, piglet friends are by TLC Home Collection.  So realistic, their fur just makes you want to reach down and pet them.  They are also animated, making gentle movements with their heads, just ready to dig into the treats I have brought them.  It is Christmas after all!

Cave of Wonders

Searching for The Cave of Wonders

I am so excited for the coming live action version of Disney’s Alladin.  They released just a teaser of a trailer but it looks so good.  You can watch the teaser here.  Will Smith will be playing the Genie and I love him but he has very large shoes to fill.  (Robin Williams voiced the Genie in the animated version.)  The scheduled opening date is May 24th, 2019 so I have a while to continue to be excited.  The poor soul in my photo was definitely not “the diamond in the rough” but I am sure the vultures were happy for the meal.  The vultures are from TLC and are currently at the Salem event but as you can see they are certainly not limited to just Halloween use.  They would go perfectly in any desert or mountain setting.  Be sure you go take a look at all the tricks, treats and other spookish delights at Salem before it ends on October 31st!

Autumn Tranquility

Tranquil Autumn

I love a room filled with light and shadows and looking at this room I can feel the fresh air, just starting to chill with the setting sun, and the smell of burning leaves in the distance.  Decorating in Second Life has always brought me joy and I have spent countless hours doing just that.  That is one of the joys of having more time to blog.  I can throw up some walls or a house (which I have collected many of..houses and hair are my weakness) and build any room I can imagine.  Grab a cup of coffee, curl up on the sofa and enjoy the view!
