Fire Away

You’re a real tough cookie
With a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
That’s okay, lets see how you do it
Put up your dukes, let’s get down to it

Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

Giving Thanks

Once upon a time, many years ago, I used to keep a gratitude journal. It was simple, really. Every morning, I would wake up and right down something I was grateful for and it started my day on a positive note. Every night before bed, I would write something else that I was grateful for and this made for sweeter sleep (if I actually got some).  Once a year we all give more thought to gratitude, as it is Thanksgiving in the United States.

My dear friend, Ruby, made a beautiful gratitude schpeal on Facebook this morning that brought me to tears. One of the first things she said was, “I’m thankful that I, unlike so many, have the luxury of sitting down at a computer, posting a status update on the internet, with a place to live, food to eat, and clean water to drink.” This is something I actually think about a great deal. There have been enough times in my life that I didn’t have those simple things that I genuinely appreciate them daily.

I think the simplest of things are often the things we take for granted the most. So, if not everyday, at least today, be grateful that you have so many simple luxuries in life, because let’s face it…as much as we all depend on it? The internet is a luxury and its one you and I both have, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to read the words I’ve written. So, thank YOU for reading and supporting my creative endeavors. May your holiday season, be filled with love and laughter. ♥

All That Glitters Is Not Gold

We’ve all heard the age old adage that all that glitters is not gold, but sometimes it IS! Just like the night I was scrolling through Facebook and found a reminder to check out N21. Oh man, I had almost forgotten! Thank you Mandala for not only reminding but tempting me with this adorable Origami necklace and earrings set! So, I’m making my way around N21 and not only do I find the Origami set, but the glittering beauty that is this super fun LuLu Dress from Tres Blah! Well, it was like a sign and it did glitter and there was a gold…naturally the rebel in me was determined to have my gold and glitter, too! I knew I had some gold shoes and eagerly put them on only to find that they were actually TOO gold, so I dug around and wouldn’t you know it, I discovered some a bonus color hud in the pack with these shoes and BOOM…a perfect match was born!

So, here it is…glittering, gold, and fabulous. No sooner do I have my outfit put together, complete with dancing particle glitter, and decide to do this blog than I get word that Fancy Decor has done metallic pumpkins for Fifty Linden Friday and is leaving them out through Sunday! I quickly grab the orange and gold for my pictures and here we are…I’m feeling a bit like Queen Midas if I say so myself.

Love Spills

“Love spills and it looks so pretty.
Seeps through my love, my city.
Love kills,
But in my mind still.
You can’t beat that spark, that thrill…”
~Radkey’s Love Spills

 I don’t know if that song is what Poe Cross had in mind when he created the Love Spills prop, but it immediately reminded me of that song and I love it! I honestly love the lyrics to that song, because unlike a lot of songs these days…well, it reads like poetry. I’d recommend giving it a listen and also go read the lyrics without the music, because they are pretty powerful. That’s assuming you like poetry as much as I do. If not, enjoy the song, because it rocks.

Love Spills

I don’t have any deep insightful thoughts to share on the topic, because for me music and lyrics can be pretty personal. What I get from them might not be what you get and I honestly don’t want to influence whatever you get from it. In the same sense that I heard an artist say that he doesn’t put the lyrics with his CDs, because he had someone come up and tell him how much  one of his songs meant to her. She went on to tell him how deeply it had impacted her life. When she quoted a specific line back to him, he realized that she had heard the lyrics all wrong. She wasn’t even close, but he loved that she had found something in the song that he never intended. I think that artist was Seal, but I’m not going to dig around for the whole story just to prove a point.

I will, however, tell you a little bit about the scene in this photo. The backdrop and the Love Spills prop are part of The Epiphany gacha set that Industry7 has created, which is closing pretty soon, so make sure you get over there before it does.  Those red tubes are actually a vibrant blue, but I modified them to red for this photo. I ran the bench though the wall cuz I wanted something a bit different for the photo, but it actually seats four people, two on each side and has really awesome animated poses in it. I used the metal version, but it comes with a wooden version as well and is available at TLC (link below).

Home

“Home is where my habits have a habitat”
Fiona Apple

I don’t do a lot of decor posts, but you can bet when I do I am crazy about the way it all looks. I have a few go to stores in SL that have long been my habitual furniture stores and so long as Cheeky Pea is in SL, Isla Gealach’s creations will have a place in my virtual home. I’ve watched her store grow over the years and I love that it has gotten the recognition it deserves. I could gush about her store for hours, but lets not digress.

I am continuously surprised by the amazing creations I find for my home across the grid and events like Uber are one of the reasons I have discovered some new ones. You like that little segue? LOL…If you haven’t gotten over to Uber yet, you’ll definitely want to check out the Desert Rose Set by Cheeky Pea. This set even has new animations and poses that will not disappoint you.

This round of Uber is a must shop, but then again so are Summerfest and N21. So much shopping, so little time…and lets not mention my linden allowance. I’m pleased as punch that I was able to tie some old stuff with some new stuff to make my virtual home reflect my spirit.

I was also fortunate enough to do the same with my avatar. Snagging this delicious lingerie set from Reverie and pairing it with accessories, both old and new. I am one happy little shopper!

My Happy Place

happy place2
Everyone needs a happy place, whether its a real place, a virtual place, or just somewhere you go mentally. About four years ago, a friend of mine took me to Hazardous and it has been my favorite place on the grid ever since. Its not a fancy place, but its peaceful and beautiful. Sometimes I think it seems strange that I can feel so renewed or calm, simply by visiting this virtual place on my computer. Sitting there with the combination of their music and the ambiance.
happy place1

There are a few places across the grid that allow me to recharge my mental and spiritual batteries. Each one delivering its own unique energy. Hands down, Hazardous remains my favorite, but its a place I tend to go alone or with someone special.
