Time to go pumpkin hunting

Just a super quick “get another Arcade pic done” post before I head out for the evening to do some trivia and whiskey tasting. My friends and I are instituting a “Whiskey Tasting Wednesday” once a month. It’s a thing. Anyways, this round of the Arcade close tonight. You’ve got – *checks the clock* – 5ish more hours to get your fill until it comes back on December 1st.

Play in the dirt because life is too short to always have clean fingernails

Your mind is a garden.
Your thoughts are the seeds.
You can grow flowers
or you can grow weeds.

It’s been quite a while since I last blogged. Life happenings and obligations have kept me pretty busy and I’m now just settling back in to a (vaguely) normal routine. I’ve learned that sometimes life just keeps pushing ahead while you’re dragging your feet and wanting to stay put. But I’m nothing if not resilient, so now I’m doing the pushing. So far, I like it much better that way. 😉 Continue reading “Play in the dirt because life is too short to always have clean fingernails”

A Single Dream is More Powerful than a Thousand Realities

There’s a new event kicking off this Friday (February 20th) called Shinny Shabby and it looks like it’s going to be awesome. It’s a “flea market for new and weathered things”  as described on the event website. And from the preview pics I’ve seen on Flickr, it looks like I will be buying the place out.

This is Keke’s offering for the event and it is super cute and lovely. Themed after the story of The Princess and the Pea, Kean has made an adorable bedroom set. Just take a look:

It’s More than Love at First Sight, I Want a Sunday Kind of Love

…  I do my Sunday dreaming, oh yeah
And all my Sunday scheming
Every minute, every hour, every day
Oh, I’m hoping to discover
A certain kind of lover
Who will show me the way…

I want a Sunday kind of love, oh yeah
Sunday, Sunday, Sunday kind of love

There is No Love Sincerer Than the Love of Food

I love food in SL. The little food items that stores make and sets you can buy in gachas (and out) are some of the first things I snatch up when I start my buying sprees. Right now Atelier Kreslo has a Farewell Bake Sale going on  and there are a bunch of yummy little treats to enjoy. The event runs through February 13th so you have some time to go pick up some of the things in these pics yourself.

For this post I used the items I picked up at the Farewell Bake Sale as well as other things that I’ve picked up at Atelier Kreslo here and there (like the Donut Festival) and filled it in with other stuff I had stashed away in my closet. All in all, it turned out to be a little tucked away bakery / coffee shop that I would love to just hang around in myself.  [NOTE: This post is a tad pic heavy.]

Good Food and a Warm Kitchen are What Makes a House a Home

I love doing decor posts. Setting up all the things I’ve collected at different events and making a pretty room to sit in and enjoy. (I’ve probably mentioned this before I’m sure.) For this post I’ve done a kitchen, mostly centering around the kitchen set and items from Dust Bunny that you can get at this round of The Season’s Story, but there are things I picked up at FaMESHed and Chapter 4 as well. The list of what’s what and where to get them is below…
