Springtime In Paris

springtime in paris

Featuring Promagic and Fashiowl Poses

I don’t want to sound like a broken record but…this photo shoot was so fun!  I really hope my fellow bloggers have as much fun as I do when coming up with ideas and then making them happen.

This is my first blog post for a new sponsor, Promagic, and I am super excited to work with them.  They have a great variety of items..fun, cute, sexy… and it’s going to be so fun playing dress up!  That is how it was with this photo.

I let myself drift off to imagine a real afternoon of shopping in Paris, stopping at a quaint sidewalk cafe (ok..so maybe I thought of the Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in the France pavilion at Epcot too but that has to be close to the real thing, right?)  Oh, what would we do without our imaginations!

My pose is by Fashiowl Poses and works perfectly with the shot.  It is from the Fever Pose set, one of three new packs that will be out at Limit8 today. They are very fun and versatile.  Be sure to stop by and happy day dreaming everyone!

Adventure at the Shore

Adventure at the Shore.jpg

Featuring :: NEWCHURCH ::

I’m ready to move in!  I think I may need to recreate this for my main house in Second Life which is on the beach.  I definitely think there is a difference between a house on the beach and a house near the shore.  I think “tropical” when I hear the word beach and I think more along the lines of “nautical” when I think of seaside living.

In my mind the people who live here woke early,  someone made the bed and made some tea.  They have carefully lain out a map and compass to chart their course for the day.  They could be sailing enthusiasts, treasure hunters, explorers or just someone lucky enough to call this seaside home their own.

The centerpiece of the room is this beautiful sleigh bed by NEWCHURCH.  The wood grain is done perfectly and looks just like many antique beds I have come and go through my mothers home over the years.  She has always been an avid collector.  The Nicholas Sleigh Bed is available at Cosmopolitan and comes in PG and Adult versions.  The top quilt and pillows have a texture change menu and it comes with Copy/Mod permissions.

It’s A Wrap!

Wrapping Up Christmas

Featuring Fashiowl Poses and *SK*

I have one small gift left to wrap and then I am officially done!  My husband has a five day weekend starting tomorrow and we are looking forward to our quiet Christmas together.  We celebrated a couple of weeks ago with my daughter and her husband, my sister and my niece, her husband and their new twin daughters.  I will certainly miss not seeing my brother, mother and father and will be sure to enjoy some phone conversation with each.  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope Santa is good to you!

This super cute pose is by Fashiowl Poses and is one of four adorable sets they have at this round of Tres Chic.  This table, the decor on and under it, including the kitties, are part of the Wrapping set.  It has 7 build in poses and is great to just display as part of your room decor.

Also at Tres Chic is my fuzzy sweater by *SK*.  It is the Estrella sweater and is one of 3 mix and match pieces.  There is also a super sexy star top and a skirt to choose from.  Don’t forget about getting yourself a little gift and head to Tres Chic to pick something  out!

Come Back Frosty

Come Back Frosty

Blogging should first and foremost be about doing something you love.  When I finally had the time to start working on photography and blogging I started with things I already had in my inventory.  Luckily I had been a bit of a hoarder in Second Life so had a good bit of stuff to work with.  I was full of ideas and had fun laying out a scene.

I have written before about not wanting to be put into a blogging category and that is still true.  I wondered if, the longer I blogged, that I would change my mind in that regard. I haven’t.  I like blogging decor, fashion, poses and sometimes just an idea.  That is what this picture is about.  It was just an idea.  There are no sponsored items, nothing I am showcasing…just an idea I got while watching the old animated and stop motion classics (Rudolph, Frosty, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, The Little Drummer Boy) while I decorated my Christmas tree.

I hope you enjoy my version of Karen, heartbroken and crying, because Frosty has melted after being locked in the greenhouse by Professor Hinkle.  Of course Santa comes and saves the day with a gust of northern wind and Frosty is returned to life.  Magical winters!  I love them.

Festive Comfort

Festive Comfort

It was back in October I think, that Brocante offered these red chairs and a matching sofa as their Fifty Linden Friday item.  I bought them, as I was thinking ahead, and just knew I would be using them in a holiday/Christmas photo and as you can see, here they are!

Just like in real life, I pulled out my favorite Christmas items and added a few new things to create this merry, festive sitting area.  Some of the new things were from the Black Friday sales, The Frozen Solid Cart Sale and the SL Christmas Expo.  There is no shortage of beautiful decor and fashion in Second Life right now so if you haven’t already spruced up your home and picked out your holiday outfits now is the time to do so!  Have fun and Merry Christmas! (Yes, it’s December…I can say that now! 🎄)

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.

An October Evening

An October Evening(1).jpg

Jack-o’-lantern

There is a shadow in the glass, A spirit in the candlelight.

There is a ghoul’s sneer in the night, A specter on the window sash.

We are not alone in this room!  In the jack-o’-lantern’s dim glow

Burns a hint of impending doom.  Does he know something we don’t know?
