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!

Step Right Up Ladies & Gentlemen

Step Right Up Ladies & Gentlemen!

Featuring [InsurreKtion] and *SK*

Sometimes ideas just come together so well.  I have been wanting to blog this vintage carnival gacha set by [InsurreKtion] for a while now and was just getting caught up on current events.  Just as I was getting some open time, *SK* released this Valentina outfit for Tres Chic and it had this vintage, androgynous feel to it and I knew it would be perfect for this photo.  She totally looks the part of a carnival barker!

It also reminds me of one of my favorite seasons of American Horror Story.  I loved everthing about AHS – Freak Show but Twisty the Clown is NOT allowed at my carnival.  I will have to turn the lion loose on him if he shows up.  I highly recommend it and it is currently on Netflix and Amazon Prime.  Step right up and enjoy the show!

Some Enchanted Evening

Some Enchanted Evening

Featuring [Krescendo] and *SK*

Hello Muggles!  My featured items today both come from the World of Magic event.  If you are a Harry Potter fan or just a fan of that genre you don’t want to miss it.  There are some great items available!

From [Krescendo] is the Headmasters Desk and Chair set and the Wizards Work set.  The Headmasters set comes in Adult and PG versions and the Wizards Work set is decor items that work great with the desk.  I especially love the little cauldron.  It’s detailed perfectly right down to the steam, the swirling colored liquid and the little colored twinkles coming out of the brew.

My dress and overcoat are from *SK* and it comes complete with a magic wand. The Narcisa dress and coat can be worn together or separately.  There are several colors to choose from for the coat and the dress.  It’s what all the headmistresses are wearing!

Be sure to visit the World of Magic before it magically disappears on March 3rd.

Barefoot In The Park

Barefoot In The Park

Featuring Faida , Fashiowl Poses & Bee Designs

Being barefoot is the best!  I can’t stand wearing shoes and am usually barefoot or in flip flops…even in the middle of winter here in the southern US.  This cute little pose set comes to us from Fashiowl Poses and is available at Redeux.  It’s called  Peaceful and includes the tree, circular bench and all of the decor items on bench except the doggie and me.  We are not included 😊!

Also available at Redeux is this super cute, girly top and skirt from Faida.  It just feels so feminine! The mix of tartan with the delicate striping inset with ruffle is adorable.

Setting off the feeling of spring are these beautifully details flowers from Bee Designs.  I have sunk them in the ground a bit for better camera position but they do have a small trunk in a shallow pot a bit like a topiary.  They can also be found at Redeux.  This is a great round of Redeux.  Don’t miss it!!

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!

Featuring *SK* and Lyrium Poses

*SK* has a great new dress and accessory at the current round of Fameshed X.  The Suzi dress has a perfect amount of sheerness with a subtle pattern and comes in 12 great color choices.  The Arnes shoulder piece is the perfect finishing touch to complete the look.  It also comes in 12 colors so you can mix and match your favorite color combinations.

My pose, by Lyrium, is available at the current round of Equal10 and is one of the poses in the Blogger Series Set 2.  I love that this pack includes all the options; animations, pose stand and pose hud.  This means you can use them in any situation.  The hud is great for taking photos in an area where you may not have rezzing rights.  The Blogger Series includes 7 poses and their mirrors.

Both events are open now!  See credits for landmarks.

Featuring InsurreKtion

So I have said before that I don’t consider myself a “home and garden” blogger or a “fashion” blogger because I don’t want to limit myself to those categories.  I want to be able to blog what I like and what I am in the mood, artistically, to blog.  I did have a lot of fun with this photo though and its probably the “busiest” decor photo I have done.

Typically, and this is just my own opinion, I think a lot of decor photos are way overdone with too much “clutter”.  That seems to be a popular style though and sometimes that works great and sometimes it’s just too much and the items don’t relate to the scene and look like they were just thrown in to fill up space.  There are a lot of pieces in this Ethnic Collection set by InsurreKtion and I wanted to enhance them but also stick to the theme.  I had fun going through my inventory and even teleporting here and there, looking for things I thought would compliment the pieces in the set so that they would tell a story of sorts.  I am very happy with the finished scene.

The Ethnic Collection is available at the Boardwalk Event, going on now through February 15th.  It comes in Adult and Pg versions and can be bought as a set or as individual pieces. The lamps and spotlight are available in the full set only.

Here we are, January 2nd, and we can all finally slow down from the hustle and bustle of the holiday.  I will slowly begin to take down the remaining Christmas decorations but not today.  Its grey and rainy and I want to catch up on my favorite blogs, sip some delicious flavored coffee and enjoy some me time.  It feels like a Monday but we are already mid week and the weekend will be here soon.  Hang in there!

Watching the Ball Drop

Watching the Ball Drop

The animals have gathered around to celebrate New Year’s Eve including their very own ball drop.  I think that countdown will take a bit longer than 10 seconds though.

I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very happy New Year, full of fun, success, health and happiness. I want to thank my sponsors for allowing me to show off your beautiful creations, my friends and family for listening to me blather on about the fun of blogging and my fellow bloggers who have inspired me along the way.

I will end this post by sharing the words from a favorite canvas that hangs in my home.  I read it often as I pass through my home and think the words are important and meaningful for us all.

Be yourself, take chances, create happiness, be passionate, fall in love, practice kindness, travel often, be generous, value friendships, learn new things, laugh every day, respect others, let go, be fearless.

A Real Page Turner

A Real Page Turner.jpg

I wonder how many people today know what that title means.  How many of us still read actual books?  With all of today’s Kindles and Glowlights and audio books, having to turn the page is becoming a thing of the past.  There is a used book store not to far from my home and I like to stop in from time to time just to browse and take in the smell.  Bookstores and used book stores have a distinct smell, like old fashioned hardware stores did.

I can remember when I was in high school and would take a load of books to the used book store.  You got credit for bringing in old ones which meant you got to pay the cheaper price posted for the ones you were purchasing.  It was a real money saver if you were an avid reader.  The owner had a cat that would follow me around the whole time I was there and as an animal lover it was hard to choose between looking at books or petting the cat.

This book nook is by Sway’s and will be available at Whimsical which starts on November 18th at 12 noon SLT.  It comes in PG and Adult versions and has texture options for the wood and pillows. Grab a book, a snack, have a seat and enjoy!
