Country Mouse

Country Mouse

Featuring {Old Barn Door}

One of my favorite childhood stories was The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse.  It also has a very good moral.

The fancy Town Mouse makes the Country Mouse feel bad with her humble surroundings and invites her to the city to see how much better life is in town.  So the Country Mouse goes and encounters several frightening events; a dog, a cat and people with brooms.  She soon realizes that the “cheese is NOT creamier on the other side of the fence” and offers these final words to the Town Mouse as she picks up her carpet bag and umbrella and heads for her country home:

“You may have luxuries and dainties that I have not,” she said as she hurried away, “but I prefer my plain food and simple life in the country with the peace and security that go with it.”

I am sure the Country Mouse is perfectly happy in this little country cabin…even if some kitties do happen to live there.

Featured here is the Primitive Sassanach Set from my newest sponsor, Old Barn Door.  If you love a country/primitive style then Old Barn Door is your place to shop.  They have furniture, decor and even homes.

Vintage Valentines

vintage valentines

Featuring *KATE*

I am a lover of all things vintage but especially vintage holiday decorations.  I saw these vintage Valentine textures quite a while back and knew that I wanted to use them sometime in the future.  I figured it would be in a framed display in my Second Life home since I wasn’t blogging back then but here they are and I am happy I get to use them for someone other than myself to see.

They just don’t make Valentines like they used to.  Most everything these days is licensed characters with a heart slapped on it somewhere.  I, myself, am a bit vintage so I can remember the cute Valentines with silly sayings like the bee saying “Bee Mine” or “Honey, I like you” and the little deer saying “I love you “deer-ly”.  I also remember spending the days leading up to Valentines Day decorating an old cereal box with construction paper and paper doily cut out hearts.  Once Valentine’s Day arrived we would all bring our boxes to school and when it was time to pass out Valentines we would drop them into each others beautiful cereal boxes.  Do kids even do that anymore??  If they don’t they are missing out on some great memories down the road.

*KATE* has released this adorable ring and bracelet set in time for Valentines Day.  It comes fitted for Maitreya and Slink and includes a hud to change metal textures as well as to hide/show the rings or bracelet. You can find it in the mainstore.

My Soft Place to Land

My Soft Place to Land

A soft place to land…we all need one.  I have a great one in my husband.  Now don’t get me wrong, sometimes he’s as soft as a brick if you know what I mean but that is to be expected in any relationship.  Not every day is perfect and there are times he makes me angry or just irritates me and I know there are times I do the same to him.  I don’t like picking up the jalapeno stems he constantly leaves on the kitchen counter and I know he doesn’t like it when I fact check him on things…like *ahem* the build up of co2 from a vent free gas fireplace for instance.

Even with all of that, he and I have far more perfect days than imperfect ones and I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world.  I have learned a lot about relationships from him as well, most important I think is looking at things from the other person’s viewpoint….something that is not always easy to do when your emotions are in the way.  I have to remind myself that just because we are having an “imperfect” day doesn’t mean he has stopped loving me.  We can be angry with one another but that doesn’t mean the love is gone. He has stayed by my side through some major medical issues, provides a great life for the both of us, encourages my dreams, tells me he is proud of me and brings me a candy bar and a frozen coke several times a week as he comes home from work.  I hope he feels those same things from me..taken care of, respected and most of all, loved.

Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall

Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall

Today I went to check out some sales and found this cute hall stand at Second Spaces.  They are having a half off sale and when I saw this, it gave me the idea for the picture.  I know I have mentioned being a Disney fan so it doesn’t take much to trigger a Disney idea.  We all know the line from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs spoken by the Evil Queen but today it turns out she wasn’t the “fairest of them all”.  I think this sexy little jacket by Meva helped me earn the title.  It is the newest creation by Meva, out today at Tres Chic.  It goes great with her other recent releases as well.  It comes with a texture hud for multiple color options too.  Don’t miss your chance to be “the fairest of them all”!

An October Evening

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?

-Daniel F. Mitchell
