For the Love of Books

In November of last year, Atelier Burgundy & Pitaya teamed up to create a bookstore gacha for Anthem. Fortunately for me, there was a fatpack option. Without any hesitation or even too close of a look, I snatched it up and sat on it for months. I knew a time would come that I would finally create a used bookstore. Well, here comes Anthem with a boho themed round for April and lucky little me, had access to Bueno’s set, as well as THOR’s. Now, get this…InsurreKtion recently invited me to join their blogging team as a VIP and there it was, sitting so pretty in Blogotex! A boho deco set!!! I knew this was it! I quickly rezzed all the things….the bookstore fatpack and all three of my boho sets. But wait, there’s more magic…Mikel Monk, the creator behind the Bueno brand, had named his couch, Kerouac!! Now, I realize there are tons of readers out there that have their own connection to Jack Kerouac, but for a while in college, I was absolutely obsessed. I even had a cat named, Jack Kerouac! I mean, clearly this was a sign, right?

I did my best to list everything in the credits, but as you can see from the photo, I used a ton of items to create my used bookstore. I was picturing one of those really cozy used book stores, that brings in a few treats first thing in the morning with a couple of canisters of coffee, but once those things are gone, that’s it for the day. They sell a variety of collectibles, new and used books, and encourage their customers to hang out.

I typed book and books into my inventory search and just started rezzing out everything. I didn’t bother trying to list every single collection, stack, and row of books, because that would have taken me all day. Let’s face it, I’d rather be reading! I did grab the names of some things, but if you really want to know a specific item in the photo, just let me know. I don’t think I’ll be tearing down this scene anytime soon. ☺

Dip my toe

I don’t have a lot to say, because I’m disappointed in people again. It never fails to surprise me how some people can be so low down and dirty. Every time I try to dip my toe into being social again, I remember why I keep to myself. So, rather than rant on about lies and pain and all the other garbage I’m feeling right now. I know this is just part of life and I’ll be okay. I’m just in the middle of a bunch of disappointment at the moment. So, for now, I’m going to keep this short and wish you all a great month. ♥

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

Love for Kitchens

I’m pretty sure that I’ve previously mentioned my love for kitchens in Second Life. I honestly don’t have tons to talk about this morning, but if you are ever looking for great ideas to elevate your kitchen I can recommend so many stores to gather items from…no matter what style you’re looking for. Pictured below are just a few of my favorites, but honestly, there is sooo much more out there and its all wonderful. So, stay tuned, cuz whether I cut back on decor shots or not….kitchens and cozy corners will always be something I blog whenever the opportunity arises.

Tiffany Tub & Table

I know…really, Sady, another outdoor bathtub scene? Hey, at least my naked ass ain’t sitting in it this time! I can’t help it, this bathtub and matching table had to go outside…cuz look at that leaf detailing! It would be gorgeous in an actual bathroom with lots of plants, too. I just had to do an outdoor scene, cuz…well, that’s what I wanted to do and anyone that knows me knows that I DO WHAT I WANT!

Cozy rooms for cozy hearts

When it comes to decor, I absolutely love the way a room looks as the sun sets through the window. There’s an inviting warmth about a room like that, especially one that invites you to wrap yourself up in a blanket, have a drink, and watch the world change from day to night right outside your window. Add a few cats and that room is filled with quiet (unless its Mr Mayhem, my rl cat) loving company. Combining MudHoney with Nutmeg and a few finishing touches, I’ve managed to create a warm, elegant, cozy room that is perfect for exactly the kind of evening I described above. I’m really happy with it…now to figure out to make a house of these Photo rooms from MudHoney…*laughs*

Boho Decor, Gimme More

I love love love Boho style decor. Some find it to be too messy, but I absolutely love the eclectic style so much. For one thing, you can add just about anything to the room. There are usually lots of colors and fun little hidden gems that can really tell visitors a lot about the resident(s) of the home. Luckily for me, there are lots of great decor styles available in Second Life. The various styles available for our virtual homes is incredible and there’s been no better time in the history of Second Life to add those little details like figurines and plants, that give our virtual spaces a true sense of home.

The Foyer

The foyer of a home is like the catch all, when you come in the door and have to bolt for the bathroom. I don’t know about you, but it never fails that I’ve got my arms full and that’s the exact moment that I need to pee! I was so excited about these sets from Silence. Although they were designed for a hallway, I could not help myself. I had to use them to decorate the foyer in my new skybox. I added some clutter to reflect that moment right after I get home from a day of running errands and shopping. Drops my bags on the floor, except the tacos and coffee….those are precious and can’t be trusted on the floor with the cats around. *giggles* It might have a fancy name like the foyer, but I think mine should be called the rush in and catch it room.

Your Greedy Eyes Upon Me

I’m just going to let this song do the talking for me today. My favorite line is captioned under the photo and the video awaits you beneath the credits. In the meantime, I get off on you…getting off on me…*grins*….yeah, I’m in a mood.

Wildflower
So much left unspoken
Between the two of us
It’s so much more exciting
To look when you can touch
You could say I am different
And maybe I’m a freak
But I know how to twist ya
To bring you to your knees
