A Breath of Fresh Air

A Breath of Fresh Air

Featuring {Old Barn Door}

The rain seems to be clearing out and today the sun is shining with more to come on Sunday and Monday.  I love the warm snaps of early spring when you can finally open some windows and let some fresh air in.

The roof and ceiling damage that I previously wrote about has all been repaired and I have slowly been getting things back where they belong.  It was nice to be able to open the window and let the spring air blow away the new paint smell.

Featured here is the upcoming new release from {Old Barn Door}.  It is the Farmhouse Living Set and will be available at the new round of Shiny Shabby which starts on the 20th.  Have a great weekend and Happy St. Patricks Day!  Have fun and be safe!

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!

Musicians Mayhem

Featuring [Krescendo], Space Oddities and Unrepentant

So much to blog and so little time!  That means a double post today but I wanted to make sure I got this blog out in time for you to make a trip to Redeux!

There are so many cute “clutter” pieces as I call them that are perfect for filling your blog photos or decorating your house!  I hear people actually do that! *laughs*  Bloggers are known for building a scene and then tearing it down to move on the next but I know we all find pieces we keep out longer in our building spaces or house if we have them.

Moving right along..I love the Light Up My Life light bulb by Unrepentant.  To me its a reminder to think of bright ideas for blogging and I love its retro feel.  Keeping with the theme of positive thoughts is the Good Vibes Shelf from Space Oddities.  The shelf includes 2 frames that you can add your own photos to (I used musical notes) and a plaque that says “No Bad Vibes”.  I think we can all use that reminder….who needs bad vibes!

Last but not least to tie my budding musicians loft together is the new release from [Krescendo].  The Amptitude amp is a great decor piece but is also has great animations in it.  If you run a club or know someone who does you need this piece.  It would blend in the club scene and offer some additional seating without taking up a bunch of space.  It comes in PG and Adult versions and is available at the Man Cave Event.

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!*

Adventure at the Shore

Adventure at the Shore.jpg

Featuring :: NEWCHURCH ::

I’m ready to move in!  I think I may need to recreate this for my main house in Second Life which is on the beach.  I definitely think there is a difference between a house on the beach and a house near the shore.  I think “tropical” when I hear the word beach and I think more along the lines of “nautical” when I think of seaside living.

In my mind the people who live here woke early,  someone made the bed and made some tea.  They have carefully lain out a map and compass to chart their course for the day.  They could be sailing enthusiasts, treasure hunters, explorers or just someone lucky enough to call this seaside home their own.

The centerpiece of the room is this beautiful sleigh bed by NEWCHURCH.  The wood grain is done perfectly and looks just like many antique beds I have come and go through my mothers home over the years.  She has always been an avid collector.  The Nicholas Sleigh Bed is available at Cosmopolitan and comes in PG and Adult versions.  The top quilt and pillows have a texture change menu and it comes with Copy/Mod permissions.

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.
