There’s all sorts of angelic options at The Arcade, but I did not take the usual route. I did add wings from The Secret Garden (tsg) but instead of rest of their angelic creation, I went the naughty angel route with this deliciously sexy Show Time dress from Blueberry.
This dress is much too short and bootylicious to be standard issue angelwear, but I don’t believe in standard issue clothing.
There is something heavenly, though, about the gold spun Nei boots that come with Blueberry’s dress in the gacha at The Arcade.
Tableau Vivant’s Evening updo works well with the crown from Balderdash and its matching necklace.
Fabulous nail appliers from AlaskaMetro, earrings from Paper Couture and a coordinating Show Time mask from Blueberry complete the look. I tinted the mask with a hint of grey so it was not such a white-white in contrast to the rest of the jewelry.
My skin is a new release from Glam Affair for Lelutka Mesh heads – and now that mesh heads can be fitted and individualized, I checked out this newest shape from Juicy, an old business made new again.… Read the rest

Portland is on its third day of snow. We are a city ill-suited to snow. Most people don’t know how to drive in it. We have lots of hills that are quite steep and can get slippery, we have bridges that get icy, and we have snow so seldom, there is no huge fleet of snow removal equipment nor deep knowledge of living with snow. I hunker down and so does my best friend, and we are both from snow country. She’s from Buffalo, I am from the Northwoods of Minnesota. We know snow.
I remember the first snowfall after I moved to Oregon. I was living way up in the Cascades, in a river valley, closed in my mountains, a deep canyon that ranged from 1/4 to a few miles wide. There were places where the road was carved into the canyon cliffs, with a fall down into the river below and there were wider valleys that made room for truck farming, but life centered on logging. It was rural, so I was surprised when I got a call saying school was closed and there was just a dusting of snow, barely two inches.… Read the rest
“Where’s the measuring tape? Did you move it?”
“I didn’t touch it.”
“Must have been the Tomte.”
“Who ate the last piece of gingerbread.”
“The Tomtenisse, then.”
The Norwegian Nisse, the Swedish Tomtenisse or Tomte, and the Finnish Tonttu are always convenient when something is missing, though they also are credited with bringing good luck sometimes. Mostly though, they were seen as tricksters. My favorite story about the Nisse was one told to me by one of our old neighbors whose Norwegian accent was so strong that even the bears in his stories had accents. “The bear, he went, oomph-ya!”
So the village of Geiranger was beset by a Nisse who was constantly leaving the cattle gate open or letting the sheep loose in the square. He would toss pinecones down the chimney and put vinegar in the lemonade. He made them so unhappy, they decided to just pack up the whole town and move across the fjord to Hellesylt.… Read the rest
Unexpected health stuff has kept me away from my blog for the longest time since I started blogging, but here I am again, and with a whole heap of new stuff to share.
My dress and boots are both from Just Because
- the dress comes with a scarf which I am not wearing here, but both are available in the gorgeous Just Because palette. The boots are also available separately at Uber
- I have never seen footwear from Annie Melson
before and all I can say is that I hope she does more. They are so easy to wear and come in her extensive palette with plenty of options to customise via hud.
I didn't wear the scarf because I wanted to show off this pretty necklace from Cae for FaMESHed
. Unfortunately you cant see the earrings but I have given a closer look at the necklace.
My freckles are by La Boheme
, and my eyes, lips and manicure are all from different designers at the current round of Applique
My first pose comes from the Nantra
set currently at The Liaison Collaborative
, and are actually skating poses but I didn't trust Zsa on the ice, so made her practice on the soft snow first.… Read the rest
Days of being too cold are on me full time now and I confess I feel a little resentful. I love to bundle up and bake and have winter fun but I get so tired of being bone cold. But Christmas is coming and that’s something not to dawdle at – I’ve got so much to do to get ready!!
I decided that this little holiday cabin I’ve retreated to is ready to be retired. It’s lovely and I’ve enjoyed my respite here, but I’d like it to bring someone else joy. You know what’s cool – YOU are someone else.
I’m going to give this little house from PLAAKA at the December Arcade round away in a drawing!! All you have to do is leave your name in the comments and NEXT Sunday – I’ll draw a name and send you this house!
Now, I’m going to eat my chilli and get busy decorating for Christmas! It’s almost here!

Some days sibling rivalry takes hold and you just need to pelt your older sister with a snowball when she isn't looking. Now I won't say that is is satisfying to hear her yelp as snow fell down her back, oh who am I kidding it's the best thing ever! What's better is being able to run away faster than she can make a snowball. Look at that totally satisfied smirk on my face.
It's quite the self satisfied sheepish little grin isn't it?CreditsI woreSweater Dress: -Nomi-
