My Charlie Brown Tree

My Charlie Brown Tree

I love a Charlie Brown tree…you know, the poor little tree with hardly any needles and saggy branches.  If you decorate it with a joy and love filled heart though, its branches will hold all the weight of the weight of the world no matter how much they sag.  I am decorating this Charlie Brown tree with gorgeous gacha ornaments from Fetch. They will be available at Tannenbaum on the Christmas tree lot.  There are 10 different ones to collect.  My sweater is also by Fetch and will also be at Tannenbaum in the Holiday Market area.  Tannenbaum starts this Saturday, November 17th and runs through December 22nd.  All of your favorite designers, over 100 of them, will be there.  You don’t want to miss it.

Northern Nights

Winter Woods(1)

You know that saying, “Its 5 o’clock somewhere”?  Well, I am pretty certain that its winter somewhere as well so I am not going to apologize for my winter photo.  If I didn’t already need a reason to start on winter pictures, Sway’s have given me yet another.  She is offering the Snowy Creek Stone Bridge and the Snowy Unpaved Road as items for the Fifty Linden Friday sale this Friday, November 2nd.  You won’t want to miss it as I am sure you will get much use out of them the whole season.  The bridge comes in long and short versions and the road comes in a variety of shapes and both sets have multiple options for heavy or light snow.  The sets will be available Friday only so don’t miss your chance!

P.S. Thank you Ms. Dench for keeping me busy! ❤️

Pendle Hill

Snapshot_555

Pendle Hill by Lauren Bentham

A few days ago I received a group notice from the super talented Lauren Bentham, the creator and owner of several sims that I am sure every Second Life photographer knows well.  The notice said she had been secretly working on a new creepy sim just in time for Halloween and since I love Halloween and I love her work I knew I would be going to visit…well, today was the day. Pendle Hill here I come.

When you arrive at the landing point you are offered a flashlight, the Pendle Hill Info and Rules notecard and a Landmark.  The notecard contains useful information about joining the group if you wish to rez props.  The notecard also states that the sim IS going to be a year round sim, not just here for Halloween.  Be sure to use the region windlight setting and turn up your sound.  I also want to add that none of my photos have been edited beyond cropping and all the lighting you see is created inworld (Advanced Lighting enabled).  Let’s continue!

From the landing point if you turn and face the water you will see this great sunken ship silhouetted in the moonlight. You can hear the wind whipping, waves lapping and see the lightning off in the distance.  Carefully work your way inland to explore the buildings.  There is a Magick Shoppe directly ahead and more buildings to the east. I headed to what I took to be the main house.

With the creep factor setting in, I could only hope that Mr. Crow’s eyes were the only ones I felt watching every step I made.

The house is full of spooky, old things along with voices, music boxes playing and old clocks ticking.  Be sure to watch out for cobwebs!

There is much to see at Pendle Hill so allow plenty of time and explore all of the buildings and the surrounding grounds.  I will be back for sure and am glad it will be a year round build.  Have fun and happy haunting!!

Seaside Snooze

Seaside Snooze

The heat index was in the triple digits yesterday…so much for autumn and pumpkin spice lattes.  Lyrium released another 1L freebie and I couldn’t resist showing it off.  There are a lot of great poses in the Marketplace that are great for new bloggers looking to build a pose collection.  You can find many that are either free or under 5L.  This bench, which I love, is by PILOT and was available on a Fifty Linden Friday a few months back.  I had just started blogging and thought that will look great in a picture and I was happy to set it free from my inventory for a bit while I took this photo.  I’m sure fall is lurking just around the corner but until she decides to show up again, I’ll stay right here.

Cheveux on the Rocks

Cheveux On the Rocks

“Cheveux on the rocks please.”  It sounds like you are ordering a drink but in reality…well, make that virtual reality, it is a great new hair by Cheveux available at the Hair Fair.  The Hair Fair starts September 22nd and if you are in the demo group you get access to all the demos today, September 21st.  The sim design is great this year with sort of an “out west” feel about it with cute little clusters of cactus scattered about.  You can also hop on a prim bus again this year, to help you move around the sim.  Most importantly, this is a fundraising event for Wigs for Kids.  You can read all about the important work they do here. The Hair Fair runs thru October 7th so be sure to visit the sims, get some new hair and donate to a great cause.

Daydreaming

Daydreaming

I often wonder what everyone’s thought process is when they are about to take a photo.  Of course it’s about showcasing a sponsors product but it’s not only that.  Not for me at least.  I like to look at the picture and wonder what they are doing, thinking….Do they look like they are having fun, feeling terrible….these are the photos that capture my interest.  This photo was not the photo I went out to capture but as I was testing out poses, this is the one that jumped out and captured my attention.  She just looked so thoughtful, her mind somewhere a million miles away.  It just came together perfectly, the way a good photo does.  If I am having to work too hard at a photo, fussing with the pose and lighting, I have found it best to just move on and start with a fresh idea. Make sure to check out the credits below.  I love the shirt and it is the new group gift at Meva.  Be sure to go get yours!
