D is for Donkey

D is for Donkey

Featuring |T|L|C| Home Collection

More goodies from |T|L|C| Home Collection.  This time we have adorable donkeys!  I love when a creators design sparks a wonderful memory and that has happened with both of TLC’s recent designs.

If you follow my blog you know that yesterday I featured the little goats from TLC and I almost named that photo “Goats Gobble Garbage”, which was a cute child’s alphabet song that my daughter and I used to sing together when she was just a little girl.  Today’s photo reminds me of a memory from my own childhood.

My mother, a longtime collector of antiques and collectibles, has a set of milk glass mugs that feature a letter of the alphabet along with a little poem on them.  Most every weekend my mom made a big breakfast that included homemade cocoa using the recipe on the side of the Hershey’s Cocoa Powder box and my sister and I would take turns picking which mug we were drinking out of that day.  “D is for Donkey” was always a favorite.  I still remember the little poem well and am happy to share the memory.

D is for Donkey
He’s strong and so wise
and so very gentle
a ride I advise

Thanks for the memories |T|L|C|! Happy Friday everyone!

Summer Sun Respite

Summer Sun Respite

Featuring |T|L|C| Home Collection

Let’s talk Second Life inventory for a second, shall we?  I spent a long time sorting mine out when I first started blogging because I knew it would be essential to get and stay organized…and it has been.

However, when you have been a…hmmm..”collector” (because we aren’t hoarders, right?) as long as me, even though it may be sorted, we may not recall what it actually is.  For example, what is Le Chant Lie?  Well you will have to check my credits to find out.

I had a scene in mind that I wanted to use this new release from TLC with so I went to my “Outdoor Furnishings & Decor” folder and just started rezzing stuff.  I found some great things I had forgotten about simply because I didn’t recall the name of it.

In my old fashioned (or just old) brain I can totally imagine a women, nestled here, reading and drinking iced tea..waiting to meet her husband who is out working in the field.  Once he arrives, she will offer him a drink and they will begin the slow walk home..hand in hand.  Have a nice weekend everyone!

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!

Dog Days Revisited

Dog Days Revisited

Featuring |T|L|C| Home Collection

Back in the fall I did a blog post featuring TLC that was a great, relaxing display with adorable beagles and now they have done it again, this time with Pointers.  Their latest release, Day at the Lake, is a promise of lazy summer days to come and I was so inspired by it.

I have always been a fan of TLC and feel lucky to be a blogger of their great creations and the longer I looked at this one I kept going back to my inventory and finding more of their items that were just perfect for the photo.  I really love the outcome of this one and wish this was how I was about to spend my day.  Who needs Calgon?  Second Life…take me away!!

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!!

The Spy Who Loved Me

the spy who loved me

Featuring [Aleutia] , Elle Boutique and Lyrium

I had such fun putting this outfit together, right down to the Russian train ticket in my hand.  The photo was completely inspired by the show “The Americans”.  My husband and I binge watched that and I was sad when it came to an end.  I thought there was some great acting, great moments and the historical look back was very interesting.

In case you have not heard of it, The Americans is about a couple living the “American dream” who are actually KGB officers.  The series takes place in the 80’s during the Cold War.  Their neighbor just happens to work for the FBI in counterintelligence.  That spin gets very interesting as the show progresses.  It appeared on FX for 6 seasons and is now on Amazon Prime if you are interested!  I highly recommend it!

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!*
