A Little Help From Friends

A Little Help from Friends

I am about to start my yearly struggle with Christmas lights.  I’m running behind this year so won’t be going all out but I do want to put them in the front windows.  It would be nice to just open the door and have my feathered friends come in and flit about, hanging lights here and there, while I sipped cocoa on the couch.  Since that is not going to happen, I guess I better get busy.  Happy Monday everyone!

Shades of Grey

Shades of Grey

Shades of grey, yes…but not 50 of them.  The Heather dress from [Aleutia] IS about seduction though and will be available at the Seduction Fair.  The dress comes in multiple colors and of course there is a fatpack that allows you to mix and match colors of different parts of the dress.   The Seduction Fair starts tomorrow, December 7th at 1 PM SLT and closes on December 21st at 4 PM SLT.  Happy seducing!

Indian Summer

Indian Summer

I’m not sure we met all the guidelines for an official Indian Summer but it was 70 degrees Sunday and that was above the average for December.  My husband and I worked out in the garage, gathering Christmas decorations as we went and sorted the other items that had collected over the summer. Thankfully, we like each other so we work well together! *Winks

It seems my sponsors were busy creating items that would work well together also. They came up with some great things for the latest round of We Love Roleplay.  Playing “dress-up” is so fun and this photo was fun to shoot.  The outfit is from *SK* and comes in 7 colors at regular price plus a special Christmas pattern for just 50L.

The next item is by Krescendo.  The Wildwood Furs drying on the rack…only they are not just decor furs.  It is actually a gorgeous rug that comes in PG and Adult versions.  Krescendo is also offering a matching pillow for just 50L.  In fact, all creators are offering an item for just 50L this round.  You can see the gallery of all items here.

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.

Grimm Enchantment

Grimm Enchantment

I must admit, I am super excited for the upcoming round of Enchantment, which starts November 10th.  The theme is the Brothers Grimm and I can’t wait to see what all the creators have come up with.  I collect vintage childrens books and have several that are collections of fairy tales.  The Grimms Fairy Tales have given us the well known classics such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel and some of the more obscure but delightful, like The Goose Girl, Snow White and Rose Red and The Bremen Town Musicians.  The dress I am wearing, Sabrina, is by *SK* and will be available at the event and the cane is included.  Don’t miss Enchantment…It’s sure to be…Enchanting.

Let’s Play in the Woods

Let's Play in the Woods 1

I love when I get to do a photo with my husband….though sometimes he is here to help and sometimes I just have to log him on and get him photo ready myself.  For some reason it always goes much faster when I am doing the dressing, posing hands and face, adjusting hover…I guess that comes along with all the practice we get, right ladies?  Shi.s. poses has releases some great fall poses for singles and couples. They are designed to work with a bicycle that is not included but is available for purchase from Thor.  You can see this bike I already had in my inventory worked just fine.  The Rowan Circular bench is from Sway’s and comes with all sorts of options for wood, blanket and pillow textures, has single and couple animations and seats up to 4 avatars.

Let's Play in the Woods 2

Here is a shot of the second couple pose which again will work great with any bike you may already own.  The leaf piles and blowing leaves are also included.  The poses and the bench are available at The Liaison Collaborative going on now until November 26th.  There are a lot of great things at this round so go get shopping and have some fun with photography yourself!

Wild Wisteria

Willful WIsteria

I love Wisteria and I am lucky to have a few spots near my house where it grows wild.  The vines take over the tree tops, spreading and filling them with dripping purple clusters.  It is considered an invasive species and its seeds are poison but it is beautiful nonetheless and I love seeing it growing in the wild.  Disclaimer: I also admit to waving my arms, clapping and possibly squealing with delight, “Look, Cotton!”, when we drive past a cotton field.  Having lived most of my life in the northern US (except for the past 6 years), cotton fields were something I had never seen.  I am glad that the little things still make me happy.

Moving along to my outfit….It’s called Maxima and is the latest design by *SK*.  It comes in 17 gorgeous colors and the texture work is beautiful.  It has the perfect shine as all silk should with just a hint of sheerness.  It is available now at We Love Roleplay.  The current round ends on November 30th.
