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!

Cabin Coffee

cabin coffee

Featuring [Krescendo] and *SK*

Having lived in Michigan most of my life, there were plenty of trips “up north”.  A few of my friends had cabins and most every summer we would pack up and head north for a weekend of camping and canoeing.  Some of us preferred to pitch our tents, some had trailers and some stayed in the cabin..maybe lucky enough to get a bed, otherwise camped out on the floor.

I will never forget the year that it rained…and rained..and rained.  We had a brand new tent and set it up with the others who preferred to “rough it”.  It was a great tent, 3 rooms with the entry room being like a screen house.  Well talk about a bad design!!  When the rains came there was nothing to shield the screen walls of that front room and it ended up ankle deep with water!  Everything was soaked!  Needless to say all of us in tents moved into the cabin for the next two nights and vowed our tent days were over..yes, it was that bad.

The day we got home from that trip I started looking for a popup and 3 days later we were the proud owners of a spiffy Coleman popup that I loved for many years.  We eventually moved up again to a hard side trailer and while it was nice, I really missed my popup.

There is nothing like a nice cup of hot coffee while camping…be it in a cabin, tent or trailer.  Summer is coming and I am looking forward to cabin coffee!

*For Kim…I know you are enjoying cabin coffee everyday.  Miss you!*

Midnight At The Oasis

midnight at the oasis

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.

It’s A Wrap!

Wrapping Up Christmas

Featuring Fashiowl Poses and *SK*

I have one small gift left to wrap and then I am officially done!  My husband has a five day weekend starting tomorrow and we are looking forward to our quiet Christmas together.  We celebrated a couple of weeks ago with my daughter and her husband, my sister and my niece, her husband and their new twin daughters.  I will certainly miss not seeing my brother, mother and father and will be sure to enjoy some phone conversation with each.  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope Santa is good to you!

This super cute pose is by Fashiowl Poses and is one of four adorable sets they have at this round of Tres Chic.  This table, the decor on and under it, including the kitties, are part of the Wrapping set.  It has 7 build in poses and is great to just display as part of your room decor.

Also at Tres Chic is my fuzzy sweater by *SK*.  It is the Estrella sweater and is one of 3 mix and match pieces.  There is also a super sexy star top and a skirt to choose from.  Don’t forget about getting yourself a little gift and head to Tres Chic to pick something  out!

Christmas Keys

Christmas Keys.jpg

One thing I really love about the Christmas season it the music.  Growing up my mother played her collection of Christmas albums the whole month of December on a floor model record player.  Back then record players were in a large console that was actually what I would consider a piece of furniture.

I remember it well, sliding the top open and watching the records spin round and round. While the old console is long gone, my mother still keeps a record player and still plays all those old, well loved, Christmas albums.

This gorgeous piano is by Krescendo and is available now at the Seduction Fair until December 21st. The baubles in the vases are from Krescendo as well and are part of the MadPea Alliance.  You can read more about the MadPea Premium hunts here.

The beautiful dress I am wearing is by *Sweet Kajira* and is coming soon to the Sense Event which opens on December 18th.  The Jane dress comes in nine shades, perfect for the holidays and beyond.
