Autumn Bug

Okay, the Autumn bug has bitten me and the bite is infected! I can’t seem to stop! I am loving all the amazing Fall creations out there. Alright, let’s face it. I will stop, cuz HALLOWEEN! But as soon as October ends, I’ll be doing it up Autumn style, all over again. So, for now, this might…keyword: might…be the last Autumn decor scene I do until November. Maybe. We’ll see. No promises. *grins*

Happy Fall

Coffee House

“Wrap me in your arms
I can’t feel it but
Wrap me in your arms
I can’t feel it but…”
~Sylvan Esso – Coffee

I’ve always love quaint, comfy locally owned coffee shops. Long before Starbucks put itself in ever Target and strip mall they could fine, before Dunkin was better know for their coffee than their donuts, there were these amazing little coffee shops in my area. They made you feel at home. The coffee was great, the people were great, the atmosphere was great. Though each coffee house had its own energy and style, each one was equally welcoming. Sadly, when Starbucks and Dunkin popped up everywhere with their fancy little drive thru windows…and life got busier…and I pulled away from my friends…well, I don’t even remember the last time I was in one of those coffee houses.

Roses and Me

I think I have a strangle love/hate relationship with roses. I’ve never been a big fan of them, because I found them quite commercial and too cliche’. My mother has always loved them and whenever she’s been able to have a garden, she has had rose bushes of various types over the years. I don’t particularly like the smell, nor am I all that fascinated with any type of botany, much less roses. My favorite flower has always been the Gerber daisy, they’re hard to grow (at least for me) and they don’t last too long in a vase either. Fake ones are never mistaken for real ones and I find them to be much more special and alluring. However, with all of that said, the older my mom and I get, the more I appreciate the things she loves…like roses. I don’t want to wait until she’s gone to appreciate something she loves. So, more and more, I’ve found myself smiling upon the sight if roses.

Though you can’t see them super well in the photo below, Dahlia did these amazing tins with roses on top for the Sept round of TLC. I was so excited by them, that I had to include them in this post. You can bet you will see them again and again, as they are the perfect touch for every room in the house.

Being Grateful

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie

Once upon a time I kept a gratitude journal to remind myself of things I had to be grateful for every single day. It’s funny how something so simple can change your perspective on everything. At first, I would do this every morning, to ensure a good attitude for the day. After a while, I notice that by the end of the day, I still had complaints. I had physical pain and I do every single day. Something might go wrong, a bad day at work…a bad hair day…cat got sick…fought with my mom, etc. Eventually, I decided it was better for me to write in my gratitude journal at the end of the day, because it made the bad things not so bad. So, that bad day at work? I was grateful to have a job. That bad hair day? Thank goodness it was long enough to pull up. My cat threw up? Well, at least it was nothing serious. I love my cat. Fought with my mom? I’m so glad to still have her in my life. There will always be things to bring us down, but we will also have things to be grateful for, too. If you are reading this, it means you have internet and that’s a luxury, believe it or not. Lots of people don’t even have a home, much less the internet. So, let’s all find some gratitude in our lives and change our perspective on the bad things in our lives. ♥

Falling for Fall

I’m hard pressed to pick “favorites” of anything and its those types of questions that always make the me facepalm in my head. What’s your favorite color? Well, seriously it depends on what its being applied to…generally speaking I want to say black. Although, technically black is not a color. (Something drummed into my head by art teachers over the years.) If someone asks me what my favorite food is…just forget it. I can’t even! However, ask me my favorite season and without hesitation my answer will be Fall/Autumn! Favorite month? October! Why is this one so easy? Well, its simple. My birthday AND Halloween are both in October. Those just so happen to be my favorite holidays, too! Yes, my birthday is a holiday, thank you very much! Don’t hate! Celebrate, because tis the season!
fall2
Despite this being my favorite season, I am NOT a pumpkin spice addict. I like pumpkin pie and my mom’s pumpkin roll(its like a jelly roll or yule log, sorta…its to die for!). That’s about it. Sure, I admit it. I’ll try the other stuff that’s pumpkin flavored and for the record..somethings do NOT belong in my coffee and pumpkin is one of those things…BLECH! I’m thinking I might like that Rumchata drink everyone is talking about…I’ll get back to you on that…then again, it has Rumchata in it..that’s enough to hook me.
fall3
Naturally I went completely bonkers when I saw the pumpkin patch set from Fancy Decor, top that off with the broken wagon, and hay bales…omgaw..I am in autumn heaven. I couldn’t stop with just one picture and you can be sure you’ll see these gorgeous pumpkins again and again this season!

Kiss the Sky

“Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately things they don’t seem the same
Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
Excuse me while I kiss the sky”
~Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze

kiss the sky_003

I’ve written before about lyrics being misunderstood or misheard. Purple Haze is one of those songs for me. I was one of the many that thought the song said, “Excuse me while I kiss this guy.” Its funny now, but it changes the song completely and what the song meant to me for many years. I think the most amusing thing I’ve read about this song is that he wrote this song after having a dream about a purple haze engulfing him while he was underwater and that Jesus saved him. Ironically, most people think the song is about drugs…LSD trips to be more specific.

kiss the sky3

I love that music can inspire people in so many ways. I think Second Life is like that, too. We came to SL for a variety of reasons and I always think its interesting to find out what and who brought people to SL. My real life friend, Jenni, brought me to SL…we won’t talk about her master plan to get rich and how quickly that failed. Let’s just say that three months later, she had left SL and I had begun to meet people that would forever alter the course of my life.
kiss the sky2
I am so grateful for the Second Life community and the boundless friendships that I’ve cultivated across the grid…around the world. I am grateful for the creative outlet allowed me through blogging and photography. Most of all…well…Excuse me while I kiss this guy.

Tea Party? Nah! Let’s drink wine!

“Welcome to the Tea Party
Want to be my VIP?
You didn’t RSVP
That’s ok, that’s ok
Welcome to the Tea Party (oh oh, oh oh)
Want to be my VIP?”
~Kerli “Tea Party

Ok, so when I first saw the Garden Soiree Set by unKindness at Collabor88, I immediately had the above mentioned song in my head. I knew I had to have a little gathering of my roommates for a photo. Anyone that knows my crew, knows that we’re not exactly tea drinkers…so it had to be a wine party, right? Well, imagine getting five very creative and strong personalities together, suggesting a theme and giving them some freedom to express themselves…yeah, madness ensued.

tea eh wine partyI am very fortunate that they let me believe I had any sense of control while shooting these photos or that I had any influence at all over their outfits. I said, “Go for it…be bizarre…be creative.” I should have known that Rom would show up in his favorite boots. Tracy, of course, shows up in as little as possible. Afterall, “Tracy’s flickr” is our favorite answer to all Cards Against Humanity questions (try it, it works). When I told them to hop on the pose stands I had filled with poses from Del May, Grace immediately asked if she could be passed out on the table. It only seemed natural that she would be, so I had to say yes. I knew the minute I saw the dress from sYs that I’d be wearing it for the party and when Sino saw it, he quickly put together his own stunning look.
tea party
Being surrounded by friends this way was amazing and I’m not sure I can even begin to explain the conversations we had while I shot these photos, but I can’t recommend the experience enough. I know we all gather at clubs and dance to our favorite DJs. That is so much fun in its own right, but please if you’ve never done it…have a party at home with your closest friends. Ask them to dress in theme and break out the cameras, because THIS?
Yeah, in almost 10 years on the grid, these types of little parties have always been my favorite. We might not have been genuinely drunk in real life, but we sure were high on life and I’m so grateful that I was able to catch this madness on virtual film. Even when things went a bit haywire with my poses stands, the fun continued.
tea party madness
The Garden Soiree Set inspires the oncoming of fall and it just so happens that its mine and Tracy’s favorite season…no, that has nothing to do with the fact that both our birthdays are in October…pssshaw! Its the time of pumpkins, caramel apples, cinnamon candles, hot cocoa…ok, lots of apple things…Halloween…falling leaves…all sorts of good stuffs! So, we got a little excited…and its really a very lovely set, despite the madness represented here.

Pants Are Overrated

For a good portion of the world, it is summertime. For me that means unbearable heat and humidity. I hate sweating, but I do appreciate the warm weather. I appreciate that, more than any other time of the year,  I can enjoy fewer layers and I find comfort in some of life’s simplest pleasures.  Ice cream, smoothies, iced coffee, capris, sandals…oh the list is endless. Yet, one of the simplest things that I find myself loving so much during the summer months is sitting comfortably at home wearing no pants and no bra!

Pants

You hear it across the web on multiple platforms, particularly by gamers, “Pants are overrated!” Well, I couldn’t agree more. While the idea of some people sitting around in the underwear communicating with people around the world might inspire disturbing images for some, I find it comforting and humorous. I’m notoriously guilty of wearing little more than you see here while curled up with my laptop, the remote, and/or a good book.
Its funny how my mind has changed about such things as I’ve gotten older, because once upon a time…ok, in my twenties…I swore by the mantra, “It doesn’t matter if its comfortable or not. What matters is that it looks good!” Now, I don’t know if its my age or if fashion has gradually embraced the necessity for comfortable clothes, thus creating more attractive styles. Perhaps, its simply my perspective and I’ve become a little more selective when shopping for clothes in the real world. Either way, my mantra has changed and now I’m more concerned with whether or not my apparel needs to be ironed. I hate ironing.
Thank goodness neither are a concern in Second Life, but lets embrace the “NO PANTS are the best pants” manta anyway!

Live or Die

“Live or die,” she says as she dropped the transplanted hosta into its new home in her garden. The she carefully placed some cool from the shade rocks at its base and smiled, “I hope you like your new home.”

Taken out of context, I think my friend might come out sounding a bit careless. However, she actually loves plants and has this amazing green thumb. We had wine while sitting in her garden this afternoon and she made me realize that sometimes life is just that cut and dry. Live or die. It’s a choice we have to make. As I figure out how to live a new life, so shall that plant. Let’s hope that like me, it chooses to live.

*giggles* One really hosta make a choice eventually, don’t they? And I choose to live…in both lives. And in Second Life, I don’t need a green thumb to surround myself with beautiful hostas, because Artisan Fantasy has made the ones pictured below and they are gorgeous!
