I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night

It’s been a while since I did a purely decor post. I got so many decorative pieces from the creators in the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and I wanted to highlight some of them on their own. Everything you see in these pics – except for the skybox itself – is from FGC. I decided to put together an astronomer’s room / office. Take a closer look below:

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”

Life is like a blank canvas, throw all the paint you can at it

 “Success is relative. It is what we can make of the mess we have made of things.”
~ T.S. Eliot

Messes. Physical, emotional, messy messes. Sometimes you make them. Sometimes you’re drawn into them. Sometimes they are fixable. Sometimes they’re not. Sometimes it seems it would be easier to just bury it all. But then – hope springs eternal, right? Ultimately, sometimes it’s worth everything to just go for it – take the mess and build something new, even better, than what came before. 🙂

This post was supposed to be about art but my musings turned internal with this today. I apologize. But there are pretty pictures of really cool stuff. So take a peek.

Walking Through a Winter Wonderland… or Nine of Them

I spent some time recently hopping all over the grid looking for a Winter sim to take some pictures on. I decided to put them all in a blog post and share them with anyone who is looking for a sim to take Winter pics on or just ones to explore. There are so many beautiful sims decked out for the season. Some are a little more festive than others but all of them are snowy and peaceful. (You’ll find links for the SLurls under each picture.)

And When It’s Christmas I Believe in Santa Claus

I believe that dreams come true,
If you wish for a dream by a wishing well,
Don’t tell your wish or you’ll break the spell,
It may sound naive, but that’s what I believe…

This time of year always seems to be so busy – shopping, planning, parties… when I finally get a chance to sit and relax it’s usually sitting on my comfy couch with a fuzzy red blanket and only the lights of the Christmas tree on and either a book or the remote for the TV in my hand. And that’s only for as long as I can stay awake.
