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!

Summer Sun Respite

Summer Sun Respite

Featuring |T|L|C| Home Collection

Let’s talk Second Life inventory for a second, shall we?  I spent a long time sorting mine out when I first started blogging because I knew it would be essential to get and stay organized…and it has been.

However, when you have been a…hmmm..”collector” (because we aren’t hoarders, right?) as long as me, even though it may be sorted, we may not recall what it actually is.  For example, what is Le Chant Lie?  Well you will have to check my credits to find out.

I had a scene in mind that I wanted to use this new release from TLC with so I went to my “Outdoor Furnishings & Decor” folder and just started rezzing stuff.  I found some great things I had forgotten about simply because I didn’t recall the name of it.

In my old fashioned (or just old) brain I can totally imagine a women, nestled here, reading and drinking iced tea..waiting to meet her husband who is out working in the field.  Once he arrives, she will offer him a drink and they will begin the slow walk home..hand in hand.  Have a nice weekend everyone!

Spring Has Sprung

Spring Has Sprung

Featuring [Krescendo] and Tuesdays

Spring comes early in the south and it still catches me by surprise even though I have lived here just over 6 years now.  My daffodils have bloomed, redbuds are blooming and trees are budding their little green leaves that will unfurl before we know it.

Spring is also a time for all the new babies like my ducks here…or like the 5 kittens I discovered IN the duct work of my house.  They are cute little things, Manx kittens, with little bobs for tails though clearing them out is going to be difficult.  The HVAC man was here today along with Animal Control who won’t do a thing to help except provide a cage once they are caught.  The property management company is going to send their “wildlife” guy out to set some live traps and I have a feeling this is going to take awhile.  Wish me luck!

Them Hens Is Organised

Them Hens is Organized

Featuring |T|L|C| Home Collection

Them hens is organised…the words spoken by Mr. Tweedy multiple times in the movie Chicken Run and organized they were!  Chicken Run is an older stop motion movie, released in 2000 by Dreamworks and it’s quite cute and comical.

Mr. and Mrs. Tweedy own a chicken farm and when greedy Mrs. Tweedy isn’t happy with the egg profits she starts plans for “Mrs. Tweedy’s Chicken Pies”.  Ginger, the smart hen of the bunch, often dreams of escape and her attempts usually end up with her in solitary confinement.  Ginger finally come up with a plan with the help of an injured rooster, the other hens and a couple of rats.  Mr. Tweedy knows something is going on and keeps trying to tell his wife that the hens are organized.  She doesn’t believe him and has some harsh words for him but in the end she gets her due comeuppance!

The movie was produced by a British studio, hence the spelling of organised with an “s” unlike the “z” we use here in the US.  You can catch Mrs. Tweedy giving Mr. Tweedy the what for here!  Cute movie, well worth the watch!

Furry Hitchhikers

Furry Hitchhikers

Featuring Fashiowl Poses

I’m an animal lover, you know, one of those who treats their pets like children.  I talk to my dog all the time and I think that makes them super smart.  My dog has a HUGE vocabulary.  It has been a while since I have had a cat due to my hubby being allergic and I don’t count the strays that were living under the porch since I was never able to get any where near them.

Being an animal lover is hard!  I can’t tell you how many times I tried to save mice and chipmunks from my cats because I love mice and chipmunks too…guinea pigs, ferrets…pretty much if it has fur, I’m a fan.

At one point in time I had two cats at the same time, Sammy and Falcor.  Sammy was a stray who had been caught in a trap (so of course I had to save and keep him) and Falcor was a solid white longhair.  Falcor was a hunter but wouldn’t eat his kill.  He would drop them at the door or if I didn’t notice he had it in his mouth he would dart in and drop it on the kitchen floor, be it bird, mouse or chipmunk.  I remember the time he made it in with a chipmunk without me noticing.  He then quickly dropped it, now that his mission of sneaking it in was successful….only it wasn’t dead and it took off down the hall with both cats and me in tow.  Ahh..good times!

That was over 26 years ago and there have been a few more feline and canine members of the family since then.  Pets…bundles of love wrapped in fur!

Courageous Woman

Courageous Woman

Featuring *SK*

“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.”

Elizabeth Bennet – Pride and Prejudice

This picture is a perfect example of why I say I don’t want to limit myself to one style of blogging.  For me it is so much more satisfying when I can be inspired by something whether it is fashion or decor, modern or vintage.

I thought of the movie Pride and Prejudice immediately when I saw this dress by *SK*.  I love the movie and the main character, Elizabeth Bennet,  or perhaps I should say I love the personality given to the character by the book’s author, Jane Austen.  Elizabeth is courageous, playful, independent and intelligent….she just doesn’t put up with crap, you know?

The quote above is one of my favorites.  I have always felt that same way for as long as I can remember but didn’t realize how fortunate that really was until I was older.  Peer pressure has never been an issue for me at any point in my life and I realize how lucky I was to have escaped it.  I have never felt a need to fit in if that meant pretending and I have never been afraid to admit to my likes or dislikes about something, even if they put me in the minority.

These strengths begin to be formed in childhood and I realize not everyone is allowed to nurture these strengths.  My wish for all is that you have the same courage Elizabeth had and that it rises up when you need it most!
