Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Featuring [Fetch] & Fashiowl Poses

Happy Friday everyone!  We had a little snow in the air here in the southern United States and I had to quickly grab some video on my phone.  We just don’t see it much here and having lived in Michigan most of my life I suppose I miss it a bit….at Christmastime at least.  It was only fitting that my latest photo feature a bit of the fluffy flakes.  

I am feeling all wintry in my quilted skirt and fuzzy sweater from [Fetch].  You can find the outfit at Collabor88.  It’s called Kelly and comes in 18 mix and match color options, 9 for the skirt and 9 for the sweater. Super cute!

The pose I am using comes from the always creative Fashiowl Poses.  Its called Xmas Bicycle and is your gift at The Liaison Collaborative right now!  It includes 7 different poses that are built in the bike and also included separately and are adjustable via menu.  Fashiowl Poses is also having a 50% off sale in their mainstore right now thru the 26th.  It’s a great time to grab up some adorable poses and props.

Come Back Frosty

Come Back Frosty

Blogging should first and foremost be about doing something you love.  When I finally had the time to start working on photography and blogging I started with things I already had in my inventory.  Luckily I had been a bit of a hoarder in Second Life so had a good bit of stuff to work with.  I was full of ideas and had fun laying out a scene.

I have written before about not wanting to be put into a blogging category and that is still true.  I wondered if, the longer I blogged, that I would change my mind in that regard. I haven’t.  I like blogging decor, fashion, poses and sometimes just an idea.  That is what this picture is about.  It was just an idea.  There are no sponsored items, nothing I am showcasing…just an idea I got while watching the old animated and stop motion classics (Rudolph, Frosty, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, The Little Drummer Boy) while I decorated my Christmas tree.

I hope you enjoy my version of Karen, heartbroken and crying, because Frosty has melted after being locked in the greenhouse by Professor Hinkle.  Of course Santa comes and saves the day with a gust of northern wind and Frosty is returned to life.  Magical winters!  I love them.

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.

Bells on Bobtails Ring

Bells on Bobtails Ring

I’m not so sure this “bobtail” is my size but he sure gave a fun ride.  Fashiowl Poses has come out with several cute sets appearing at various events and this Carousel prop is just one of those.  It is one of four sets available now at Tres Chic.  The sets (sold separately) have a carnival theme and include a series with cotton candy, a kissing booth, one of those “swing the hammer and hit the bell” strong man games and of course this carousel.  The carousel has 9 built in poses and offers some great photo ops.  I loved the idea of a winter carousel ride, hot chocolate waiting in the background and am sure there are plenty of these around in the real world but not near me and certainly not with this much snow.  I will enjoy this one for a few more rides in Second Life but if you are lucky enough to live near one, make sure you pay it a visit this season.  Simple pleasures are far too often overlooked!

A Date with Hot Chocolate

This looks perfect for a winter weekend date.  A walk in the woods, snuggling in a snowy rowboat, making a snowman and sipping hot chocolate.  Too cold you say?  Create your own winter getaway in Second Life, where it only looks cold.  The Snowy Rowboat is new from CHEZ MOI and is available now at ULTRA.  It comes in PG and Adult versions and will rez props for single and couple animations.  ULTRA closes on December 10th. Have a great weekend everyone!

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.

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.
