The Hardest Part

I think the hardest part of doing decor posts is figuring out what to write. I’m not always as emotionally connected with my decor scenes as I usually am with my fashion pics. I’ve had this photo ready for at least a week know and every time I pull up the post to write something, I turn my head to the side like a confused dog. I’m actually quite proud of the scene and the arrangement of the items, but no clue what to say. I’m not a huge fan of leather furniture in real life, because I hate sticking to it. I do think its beautiful and I think of this room as a man’s area. A man who has a woman in his life, like a mother or sister, that insisted on a few female touches to the room. *shrugs* Maybe I’ll have more to say about the next picture. Though to be perfectly honest, I’ve been more visually inspired as of late, than verbally.

Oh Hi!

Oh hi there, you caught me roaming through an abandoned house on Borneo Isle. I was especially fascinated with this old piano. I always wanted to learn to play, but it wasn’t in the cards. Not sure who brought in the fresh sunflowers, but they certainly brighten up this dusty old space. I’ve never been big on sunflowers, but my mother like them. Everytime, and I do mean EVERYTIME, she sees them she tells me how my grandmother had them growing along the back of their yard like a fence, when she was growing up. Anyway, this little house that I stumbled across has plenty of photographic spots inside, not to mention the plethora of choices on the rest of the land. Go check it out, the link is in the credits below. ♥

The Outlaw

She knew the moment she saw him walk into the bar that she wanted him. He looked wild and untamed. He was an outlaw, it was written in the rugged lines carved into his tanned skin. His tattoos was old and some of them were clearly done behind bars. This was not love at first sight. No, this was a raw savage lust. She’d never known such a need to feel someone else’s skin pressed to hers before. She knew his type and she knew he’d want something simple like whiskey or whatever beer was on tap. She place both in front of him and smiled, “First round is on the house.”
By the end of the night, he was ready to follow her home and she was ready to let him. That was weeks ago, now they had a routine. He would call her whenever he rolled into town to see if she was busy. If she wasn’t busy, he would drop in for the night. Their passion was raw and unbridled. Their affair only lasted the summer, but the urgency with which they made love would be forever etched into her memory.

waitiing for him
Whenever he called, she anxiously waited on the balcony until she saw him ride up on his bike.

What are you complaining about?

I saw something rather bizarre on Facebook the other day. It was an entire thread about a few people who have been liking lots of photos on Flickr lately. The thread started with a question, but what followed was what fascinated and confused me. People claiming that they blocked the person for liking so many of their photos. Uhm, correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t we put our photos on Flickr to be seen and hopefully liked enough to make clicking that little star worth someone’s time? There were several other comments that made me chuckle and tilt my head to the side like a confused dog.

One person said that this person had too much time on their hands. Well, the same could be said about those complaining about so many Flickr favs, couldn’t it? I mean, isn’t that just a complete waste of time? Someone else said that the people faving so much were trying to gather favs themselves. That might be true, but it certainly doesn’t mean you must do so.

From there, someone mentioned people that copy/paste the same compliments over and over again. This is one statement that I can understand both sides of, because I am one of those people. Why? Despite the wordiness of my blog, I don’t always have eloquent words or time to explain all the amazing components that I find in a photo on Flickr. I have several words with cute emojis that I use, because different photos warrant a different type of compliment. However, I assure you that I do not copy/paste these compliments all willy nilly. I only paste them if I believe it, just like I don’t invite photos to my Bringing SLexy Back group if I don’t find the photo to be quite sexy.

I think the bigger question should be, “Why are you all complaining about something so many others are genuinely grateful for?” I personally am grateful that anyone takes the time to like or view anything of mine on any platform. Perhaps today, we could all just take a moment and give thanks for some of our blessings.

Lady Licorice

The moment I saw this corset, I knew it was a must have simply for the shape and details. Then I got the hud and was able to play with the details even more. As I played with the color options, I came up with this color combination and immediately thought of these Good & Plenty candies that I always wanted as a kid. Problem was, I only wanted them cuz they looked so pretty. You see, they were actually licorice and I hate licorice! So, I’d get them, put one in my mouth, then spit and spew like a little maniac. Don’t worry, Tracy, the candy didn’t go to waste. My father loved licorice. *laughs* Oddly enough, I kinda feel like that candy in Second Life. The occasional man will approach me, but when they find out that I’m not just going to spread my legs for them…they keep on truckin. Which is fine. I’m clearly an acquired taste, just like Lady Licorice here. *winks*
