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?

Grim, Grinning Ghosts

Grim, grinning ghosts

It’s official!  Happy October everyone!  As some of you know, I have been gone the better part of a week to attend my daughters wedding.  Everything was beautiful and went wonderfully.  She is now off to the first part of her honeymoon, our favorite vacation destination, Disney World!  When I returned home last night I was greeted by some great new Halloween items to blog.  This mausoleum reminded me of the Haunted Mansion attraction at Disney World which is a favorite of mine.  It is available now at the “Welcome to Heck” – I Heart the Cart sale along with many other spooky goodies.

You can get your “Grim, Grinning Ghost” fix here.

Zen Moments

Zen Moments.jpg

I decorated and landscaped a small parcel for a friend who wanted a little Asian inspired zen getaway and she has been gracious enough to allow me to take pictures there on more than one occasion.  When I saw these new items from ::NEWCHURCH::,  I knew I would be asking again.  I love the rich colors and the textures are just gorgeous.  The Yasuragi bed is available now at Ultra and the Kengo Tansu stepped side cabinets, which also come in 4 different configurations, are available at Blueprint, which is a brand new home and garden shopping event making its debut on September 18th.  I am so glad ::NEWCHURCH:: is participating in what promises to be a great event. Be sure to check out the event as well as the ::NEWCHURCH:: main store for a great selection of beautiful pieces.

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!
