Vintage Valentines

vintage valentines

Featuring *KATE*

I am a lover of all things vintage but especially vintage holiday decorations.  I saw these vintage Valentine textures quite a while back and knew that I wanted to use them sometime in the future.  I figured it would be in a framed display in my Second Life home since I wasn’t blogging back then but here they are and I am happy I get to use them for someone other than myself to see.

They just don’t make Valentines like they used to.  Most everything these days is licensed characters with a heart slapped on it somewhere.  I, myself, am a bit vintage so I can remember the cute Valentines with silly sayings like the bee saying “Bee Mine” or “Honey, I like you” and the little deer saying “I love you “deer-ly”.  I also remember spending the days leading up to Valentines Day decorating an old cereal box with construction paper and paper doily cut out hearts.  Once Valentine’s Day arrived we would all bring our boxes to school and when it was time to pass out Valentines we would drop them into each others beautiful cereal boxes.  Do kids even do that anymore??  If they don’t they are missing out on some great memories down the road.

*KATE* has released this adorable ring and bracelet set in time for Valentines Day.  It comes fitted for Maitreya and Slink and includes a hud to change metal textures as well as to hide/show the rings or bracelet. You can find it in the mainstore.

So I have said before that I don’t consider myself a “home and garden” blogger or a “fashion” blogger because I don’t want to limit myself to those categories.  I want to be able to blog what I like and what I am in the mood, artistically, to blog.  I did have a lot of fun with this photo though and its probably the “busiest” decor photo I have done.

Typically, and this is just my own opinion, I think a lot of decor photos are way overdone with too much “clutter”.  That seems to be a popular style though and sometimes that works great and sometimes it’s just too much and the items don’t relate to the scene and look like they were just thrown in to fill up space.  There are a lot of pieces in this Ethnic Collection set by InsurreKtion and I wanted to enhance them but also stick to the theme.  I had fun going through my inventory and even teleporting here and there, looking for things I thought would compliment the pieces in the set so that they would tell a story of sorts.  I am very happy with the finished scene.

The Ethnic Collection is available at the Boardwalk Event, going on now through February 15th.  It comes in Adult and Pg versions and can be bought as a set or as individual pieces. The lamps and spotlight are available in the full set only.

Mellow Yellow..or Red..or Orange

Mellow Yellow

We had an extremely windy day over the weekend and it took nearly all the leaves of the Japanese Maple in the yard.  They are now pooled up, again, near the fence and garage door.  They are a lovely shade of reddish orange and I have to admit….they look pretty all piled up.

In my Second Life, I wanted to contain the mess so I am happy with my Ginkgo branch.  As you can see its leaves are falling too and it will be soon swept aside to make way for the Christmas decorations. Ok..on to the fashions!

I am super excited to have a new sponsor, Aleutia, and am starting off with a great top featured in Fameshed Go.  It is Emma, which comes in your choice of either a dress or a shirt, both with SO many options.  I am wearing the shirt here which comes in a ton of colors, 25 of them.  There are options to turn the sleeves off making it a great little tank for the summer also. You can change the color of the belt (waist section) as well the sheerness of the fabric.

The Emma top and dress are in the Aleutia mainstore and are available as part of Fameshed Go which will end on December 10th.

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.

City Highrise

City Highrise(1)

I love decorating and there is never a shortage of supplies in Second Life.  Great things come out almost every other day.  I never get tired of arranging, rearranging and then re-rearranging a scene!  Its part of the fun.  For this picture I used a mix of new and old releases and would be content to curl up on that sofa, turn on the record player and enjoy the view.  The sofa and shelf unit are the newest releases by NEWCHURCH.  The sofa is part of the Flix & Chill set currently at the Red Light District and it is loaded with options.  You can change the color of the sofa, the cushions and even resize it to fit your avatar to perfection.  The set includes a rug, coffee table, tv, remote control, popcorn and more (not shown here)…everything you need to enjoy a weekend binge session of Netflix.  The Bonny Console includes all the decor items shown on its shelves and is available at Cosmopolitan.  It is modify so you can change the color of the wood to suit your needs.  Be sure check them, take them home and enjoy your own view!

An October Evening

An October Evening(1).jpg

Jack-o’-lantern

There is a shadow in the glass, A spirit in the candlelight.

There is a ghoul’s sneer in the night, A specter on the window sash.

We are not alone in this room!  In the jack-o’-lantern’s dim glow

Burns a hint of impending doom.  Does he know something we don’t know?
