A-Frame Life

Growing up on a resort lake with twenty-one year round residents, but thousands of weekenders who flood the lake and live in the more the hundreds of lakefront cabins that are empty most of the year, I am very familiar with A-frames. Lots of people bought A-Frame kits or pre-made A-Frames, much faster than the old-fashioned bungalow style cabins that signal older homes on the lake. This A-Frame from Barnesworth Anubis has an advantage over many of the lake front cabins as the ceiling rests on a short bit of vertical wall. The A-frames on the lake often did not have that bonus, which often meant a lot of space behind the couch when it was shoved against the wall and sometimes a clunk on your head. A-frame weekenders almost never came for winter ice-fishing, their cabins hard to heat with what heat they had rising to the ceiling and escaping from the lakefront windows. But they sure are pretty when you’re out in the canoe late at night, all the light from their wall of windows facing the lake, so bright and illuminated in contrast to the smaller windows on the bungalows.… Read the restOne could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Life Is Uncertain, Eat Dessert First

The veggie tray, apple pie, salt and pepper shakers and waffle iron can all be found at The Arcade. The uncertainties of life are manifest every day. Some uncertainties are harder than others. My sister has Stage IV lung cancer. But her future is still uncertain, it’s quite possible the chemo will kill her long before the cancer can. She’s been in the hospital for two weeks now as a mold has developed in her lungs, thanks to chemo bringing her white blood cell count down to zero. On Thursday, I learned she has developed VRE, a anti-biotic resistant bacteria similar but much more rare than MRSA, the OMG of countless House episodes. Of course, because when you are going to ER three times a day for 90 minute infusions of antibiotics, you develop anti-biotic resistant bacteria. I think it is time for her to eat a lot of dessert. Ice cream, apple pie, chocolate cake, brownies and coffee nips. Go for it!
This skirt is exactly like the ones I prefer in my first life.… Read the restLife is uncertain, eat dessert first.

Throw Some Southern Shade

I had a tremendous giggle when I saw the name of one of EXILE’S hairs for Collabor88 this month. Southern Shade might evoke images of willow treas, or Georgia pine cooling you down on a humid southern morning. Or if you’re me, and your typist is a girl living in the south of the US immediately you come to think of all those terms that sound nice but just aren’t – most of the time anyway. BLESS YOUR HEART might be the most famous of these, but this one is a tricky one. Bless your heart can be sincere. Something terrible has happened? Oh…bless your heart. You blew off your own eyebrows lighting gunpowder next to your face? BLESS YOUR HEART insert the tone. With Southern Shade being thrown it’s really all about tone.  It doesn’t translate well in text, but in person the sticky sweet southern accent can make even “Well I hope everyone is ok” sound like “Burn in the fires of hell”. It’s a special gift reserved for ladies of the south, this type of shade.… Read the rest

If only in my dreams Lelutka has released a new mesh head called Simone. It’s a special edition head with additional expressions including this mournful one that perfectly captures some of the emotional turmoil I am feeling this Christmas season. With the passing of my aunt this summer, everyone from my parents’ generation is now gone. My sister had a tough struggle with cancer last year and came though in the end, but now has a new cancer that has gone from Stage One to Stage Four in just one month. I will confess I cry a lot lately, but I am still hopeful she will beat the odds. She is the strongest woman I know. Homesickness has manifested itself in the kitchen with traditional Christmas baking like lefse and rosettes and cooking up Cherry Soup with Dumplings, the foods that make me think of home and family.… Read the restLike It's Christmas in the Room

Divine Pleasures–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 19

“Surely everyone is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a wintry fireside; candles at four o'clock, warm hearthrugs, tea, a fair tea-maker, shutters closed, curtains flowing in ample draperies to the floor, whilst the wind and rain are raging audibly without.” ~ Thomas de Quincey Continue reading →

Let It Snow…

The Cascades are expecting 20 to 40 inches of snow in the next few days. That is the best kind of snow. In the winter, I am all for letting it snow…elsewhere. But, Second Snow does not get cold, does not cause car accidents and does not make the stairs slippery, so I am happy to see it snowing in Second Life®. It was light fluffy snow, the kind that falls when the weather warms up so you can wear something like this lovely cardigan from Emery and not freeze.
Decorating the tree in the back yard and making a few snowmen made for a fun afternoon. For you snowmen manufacturers, there’s an entire kit of materials and end products from Sway’s at The Arcade and What Next also makes a lovely, well-dressed snowman which you can find at The Arcade, too.
I really love this cardigan which comes in five options at Collabor88 this month. The lovely long, casual hairstyle is also at Collabor88 from Exile. It is called Cozy Winter Night, but as you can see, you can also wear it on a chilly winter day.… Read the restTis the Season

The Exercise Room

I am taking a short break after a lovely morning workout in my exercise room. The attic of my townhouse from Barnesworth Anubis is huge, light and airy, perfect for a playroom or, for singletons like me, for a room to dance, exercise and even chill with a book on the massage table after a workout.

Rise and Shine

This is my face every morning when I have to wake up.  Waking up doesn’t agree with me. I like going out and doing things but ugh the waking up part isn’t for me.  I’m ready for fall though, I even put in a little fireplace at the balcony of my bedroom. I’ve got a new perfect spot for sitting and relaxing at day’s beginning or ending now. I love that. This one is part of a set from LARK from this month’s COLLABOR88. I’m considering moving into this brownstone, which is also a new release from Barnesworth Anubis for Collabor88 this month. I feel like DAMN I just moved but MAN I like this! I don’t know – it’s really cute.  It would be perfect for the holidays! I picked up these boots at FRI.DAY the other day when I was out dropping lindens like mad, they’re a perfect winter add on for anything I love them. My socks, dress and hair are all new from this round of Collabor88 – it’s a really good one.… Read the rest

At home with the macabre

Barnesworth Tabor Cottage, Vespertine upcycled fence town/autumn; 8f8 Storyteller’s Burrow Reader’s Pier, Botanical Aspen Trees, Half-Deer Deadwood Trees, Skye’s Enchanted Woods, 3d Trees Spruce 01, Pixel Mode Fall Harvest Barn I do not decorate my home for Halloween and only add a bouquet of colored glass bulbs and a gold tabletop Christmas tree for Christmas. My apartment is small and I don’t waste my limited storage space storing decorations. My second life, though, seems to have infinite storage space so I love to decorate there. Also, it’s much less work to pack up and move and also less expensive. Here,then is my home for fall inspired in part by the macabre aesthetic of Tim Burton. I began by tinting my Tabor Cottage from Barnesworth to saturated dark colors instead of the natural stucco that it was originally. There’s a barn in the background with a few animals and a dock on the water. Barnesworth Anubis Tabor Cottage, Verspertine upcycled fence town/autumn, Cheeky Pea Autumn Step Frame Dark, Striped Mocha Swing, Pilot Pumpkin Mice Black, Striped, Orange; Ariskea Terre Automne Branches Vase, PILOT Fall Garden Night I added this prop fence from Vespertine because I loved the bright colors and though it did not add anything macabre to the home, I liked the colors and the idea of it.… Read the rest“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”

In the middle ground between light and shadow

When I came across DE.Boutique at The Instruments last month, I liked the designs so much I headed to Marketplace to check for more.  This is one I found that I immediately loved for its bold graphic design, its gorgeous and flattering silhouette and I thought the rich colors would be lovely for fall. I am very happy with it.
I have been decorating for fall with an old Barnesworth house. I love that Barnesworth lets us modify and that I can tint because I wanted to make this house more Burtonesque and for me that means bold, saturated colors. I added a “railing” to the porch by using a fence prop from Vespertine and some pumpkins and an autumn planter from Ariskea and some mice-infested pumpkins from PILOT for Collabor88.

One of my favorite items from this month’s Collabor88 is this “ladylike” chair from Dust Bunny. The chair crossing its legs just cracks me up. I would love it even more if it had a pose that exactly mimicked that crosslegged pose.… Read the restIn the middle ground between light and shadow
