Fuel Your Inner Child

December 1st, The Arcade is open and in full swing!  The chiming and clanging of the machines, the music from the carousel, the smell of cotton candy and confections, and the flashing of colorful lights paint this inner childs dream event. I hope you were able to save up that gacha money and the machines are generous with their rares.  If you see me kicking a machine, do not fret, it likely isnt being nice and giving me something rainbow!  My inner child has a great time at the Arcade and I hope you do as well, the event takes a great deal of time and the creativity is boundless.  What treasures will you find, what is that one thing on The Arcade Shopping Guide that you must have? This round my must have was the Love camera you see me wearing in the photos below.  Skillfully crafted from bbqq, it was a must have to capture the precious moments with Gabriella. To make your Arcade experience more enjoyable, consider wearing a full body invisible alpha and taking off all those huds and gadgets to lessen your own lag.  … Read the rest

Love Is…

Have you seen the new release from Sway’s?  The cloud shelves are absolutely wonderful!  With two styles, one that has books and knick knacks, the other empty, you can do quite a bit with these great shelves.  I found the empty shelf to be perfect for storing my growing Intrigue Co. Plushie Pals collection! Seven Emporium released love themed decor last Friday and they are just perfect for adding a touch of love to your home or shop.  I felt the two new releases went together rather well and put them up together in our house to brighten up the place we call home. Today is the last day of the September round of the Arcade Gacha Event, so be sure to get on over there before it shuts its doors! Decor 411: 7 – Red Heart

Peaceful Easy Feeling

We are past the midway point of the month of September and the amazing items keep coming!  Autumn is a time of calming down from Summer, making way to prepare for Wintertime.  It is my favorite season, the cool weather is a welcomed reprieve from the heat.  The rustle of leaves, a nice warm tea, and sitting on the porch at home is a memory I have from my childhood that will never fade. The beautifully crafted rocking chairs below are from What Next and remind me of the rocking chairs mon Papa and mon Mama had on our back porch since I was born.  I had my own, a little version of the cherrywood of their larger chairs and we sat outside talking and enjoying the wonders of life and the simplicity of a lovely Autumn afternoon. The chairs are available for Fifty Linden Friday, come snatch them up for some memories of your own.  The rest of the decor and house are from other events this month, check out the credits for more information.

We’ll Ride On Bicycles

The Autumn season has brought about so many events, I can’t keep up!  What a grand adventure it has been through, learning of new events, new designers, seeing amazing creations from the designers we love, and creators coming back from hiatus to give us new things to enjoy. It certainly has been a busy month, and the reprieve into my imagination has been a welcome one to de-stress and keep connected to my inner child. Many times I have an idea for a photo and end up going a different route, or I struggled to get it just how I envision it, however the one below came to me and worked out just how I planned.  It started with the search for a rainbow pwnie named Dash.  It is no secret I seek out all rainbow things for my beloved Gabriella.  If it is rainbow, I am likely going to try to get it, buy it, empty my pockets of all coinage to get it to give to her.  Such was the case with this round of the Arcade and the lovely whimsical pwnies from silentsparrow. Once Dash was achieved, I had quite a few of his friends, and they decided I needed to be taken on an adventure with other companions.  … Read the rest

All Creatures Great And Small

When I was a child mon Mama used to tell me fairy tales that her grandmama told her.  Amazing tales of the Duendes. the Fairies who lived in the home, coming out at night to whisk about and make mischief and beauty.  As the tale went, if you did not do your chores, left dishes out or the laundry undone, they would be disapproving and make mischief, throwing the clothes all over the house and hiding the plates in odd places.   If you continued to be lax in your chores and forgot to leave cream out for them, or some shiny bauble, they would grow angry and destroy the house! Mon Mama described them so beautifully, how they had resplendent angelic wings and beautiful features, wearing lush gossamer silks that wisped about their tiny bodies and wings in an ethereal display of beauty. As I grew, I continued to soak up tales of the wee folk, in every culture I could read about.  When Baiastice created amazing fairies for this current round of the Arcade, I had to have them all.  … Read the rest

The Arcade September – Intrigue Co. Puppy Pals

Intrigue Co. ALWAYS creates the most amazing items for the Arcade.  The September 1 Year Birthday round of the Arcade is no exception!  Katharine McGinnis is the brilliant creative mind behind Intrigue Co. and she has been someone that I admire for her whimsical, playful items. When I first started out in SecondLife I stumbled upon her shop looking for feline ears and wound up with tons of pajamas and fun items for my tiny little home at the time.  Through the years I have been absolutely in awe of what she creates, each and every new creation topping the last which is saying a lot! September 1st the Arcade September round will open and you can get these adorable puppy pals from Intrigue Co.  Do not be surprised if you see an imprint of my hand on the machine because I seriously played it more times than I can count to get nearly the entire collection.  I really love the little Gabby the Lab, isn’t she adorable! There isn’t  Chance plushie but there is a Lucky the Dalmatian and my name does mean luck so in the right hand corner of my image, you will see the little Gabby & Lucky snuggling.  … Read the rest
