As The Fog Rolls In

I’m settling into my new place and I’ve got something important to remind you, while I lounge around watching the fog come in. The ARCADE is only open ONE MORE FARKING DAY. Ok if you haven’t been yet – IT IS TIME. The machines are still there and they hope to see you soon I’m pretty sure. One more day. Well two days if you count today. This lovely set from MUDHONEY is part of the offering right now and it’s got some great pieces for comfortable living. I believe firmly in cozy and welcoming decor. I had forgotten MUDHONEY was in this time! OOOPS! I’m going to dig out my TV and start putting this place together soon. I confess I’m really enjoying my new location, I just haven’t dedicated proper time to making it home. Not today though. Today is a lazy day. Gonna run through the ARCADE one more time though. You betcha! Gidge is Wearing:

We know of Match.Com, Plenty of Fish, eHarmoney, Tinder, and the list goes on, but what do we know of Medieval Dating for the Common Hedgewitch? Well, it was as simple as opening your iPortal of course! To do this, you would need to collect the inner wood of a tree that was struck by lightning, not once, but twice. Then that tree had to have been set on fire, but not getting burnt all the way through, and obviously not at a witch trial! The wood was then to be soaked in the urine of a Unicorn for a whole year, at which point . . .  you know what, lets just say, it took bloody forever to finally get your iPortal Wand made. Or you could go to the next town over and hope to hell the witch over there made a few extras when she made her own. Once made or acquired, you iPortal wand would allow you to open portals to sneak peaks at eligible bachelor warlocks and wizards. Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier is an inworld group that top Medieval and Fantasy Designers can send out notices in.… Read the restHelena Stringer - IOF - IPortal - 1

Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.

Gizza recently released a skirt and shirt/jacket combo that is a rocker’s dream. Called Shake With Me, even the name acknowledges this rocking inspiration for this outfit.  A short flared skirt, a fitted crop top with lace topped by a leather jacket combine to rock your socks off.
You can trust me, I bring a book everywhere I go. I just finished the magnificent All the Light We Cannot See that I recommend to all of you. Meanwhile,  am busy reading The Culture of Make Believe which I read in small doses at a time because it is so rich in ideas and in detail and full of pain that I have to think about each concept before moving on. So, for relief, I am also reading Get In Trouble, but other than being intrigued already, it’s too soon to say how much I will like it.

I dug out some old boots from Gizza that I knew would look great. These studded platform boots are glam to the max with wild embellishments on the platform and heels. The So Selfish hair from Vanity Hair is also a great rocking style and worked well with the headband that is part of the Gizza outfit.… Read the rest“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.”

Moving Again

One of my great loves this round of The Arcade was the twin treehouses from Dust Bunny. Since I’m in a transition in my SL changing things up and just moved – I was ecstatic when Cajsa happened to give these to me as a present. I’ve found my new house! Every round of the Arcade I’ve been able to add things to my SL that just complete it a little more. The story of pixel GIdge is more lovely and complete because of the little things that make my story more lovely, and more “me”. I love the Arcade and guess what – you’ve got LESS than a week! You need to GO!! There’s time and the crowds have thinned a bit so get in there and grab those lovelies you’ve been waiting for! How much do I want this phone in real life? that’s from Tres Blah – again an Arcade favorite and that’s from this round! That’s it for me this morning. My bed is made and I am dressed. Time to do some unpacking! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

My Yard Sale Yard

This chair is so comfortable and a bargain at $25L!
Here I am babysitting my yard sale stuff at the Gachaopolis! yard sale. I don't have any milkshakes to bring you to my yard sale yards, so I will have to tempt you with things like this:

A bumblebee balloon hat! I have one too, so if you buy this we can hang out together and be twinsies!
Who doesn't need a bumblebee balloon hat?? Or a number 4, re-sizable birthday candle? Or a surfboard buffet table that will be perfect for your next luau?? Ribbon candy? Mistletoe? Boho jewelry?

At the moment I have two spaces here (the ones shown in the picture above), but I'm hoping to be able to sell enough to consolidate to the single space near the end of the wall there. I still have some stuff that I need to put out once I have room for it - like extra poses (and once I make room to display these poses, I will have milkshakes to bring people to my yard!). Even though I don't have the world's most visible spot, I've sold a good number of items.… Read the rest

“Would you lie with me and just forget the world?”

“Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life.” “All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see. I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all.” “If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?” I’m so sing-songy today!

I’ve been wandering around in the woods for a few days lost and wondering what I wanted to do. Luckily I was dressed for a pastoral setting and only missing my sheep. I bet a I have a sheep around here somewhere. This adorable dress is from ZENITH for Collabor88 this month. It’s adorable – makes me think of something Gogo would love. Short hair isn’t always my favorite but I love this ‘do from Kavar at EXILE. You can still pick it up at THE ARCADE this month. Now, I’m thinking of moving house – so I have to sort out my SL!

In the Shadows

You feel it in the little hairs in the back of your neck - the feeling that you're being watched, but there is no one there. You feel a chill in the air and what you think may be the sound of someone breathing, or it could be nothing, just your imagination playing tricks on you. Or maybe not.

and the sun wields mercy

JUMO just released Arthuriana – a skirt and top combo in chocolate, oil, marsala, navy and violet The dress comes with a luxe wreath of gold and pearls, earrings, bracelets and a headpiece. However, I was inspired by the print  to take the outfit in a different direction.
As you can see, Arthuriana has Wow! factor aplenty with its design details such as the dramatic sweep of the skirt and drama of the cutout back.
I decided to shoot the pictures at Failure to Thrive, one of the Linden Endowment of the Arts sims. It is beautiful, eerie and well worth several visits.  For some reason, it made me think of “and the sun yields mercy,” a poem by Charles Bukowski, another favorite poet. One of my friends gave me the best gift one Christmas, using cutout pictures from magazines and construction paper, she made me a calendar of lines from 12 Bukowski poems. When the year was over, I pasted new months over the calendar part and used the illustrations again and again until it was falling apart with age.… Read the restand the sun wields mercy
