At the Garden [event by TLC]

At-the-Garden

Well, this took forever.  I dedicate this post to any blogger that regular puts together home and garden posts.  I thought dressing myself was hard.  This, well this takes so much time!   Granted, I wanted to go through the process of making a potential real garden that I would actually use, so I started with a bare piece of land and turned it into this.

The main pieces in this post are from Fri. Home, Alouette, Pixel Mode, and Barnesworth Anubis.  I have to say it was a pleasure to work with such wonderful garden pieces! I never ever ever wanna leave my garden spot.   Thank you to The Liaison Collaborative for putting together such a fine event.  I normally steer clear of home and garden stuff, but now I have garden fever forever.

The Arcade: Revisiting Childhood

Me, as I unpack my Arcade stuff…I just snapped a quick picture using DOF with my wand and footie pajamas.  Um, if I had all the money in the world, I would still be at The Arcade trying to collect every single wand and jammie out there:

The Arcade

So, as I started to unpack, I realized I had tons of stuff. I just cleaned out my inventory a couple weeks ago, and this gacha thing made a serious mess. But, I had so much fun in the process that I didn’t care.  I don’t think I got one thing that I set out to get, but it didn’t matter, and I ended up loving the items I did get.   In a few months time I won’t remember any of that, but I will remember how The Arcade made me feel like a kid again.

Inspire Me:Unforgettable Quotation

“With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall.”  Emerson, from “Self-Reliance”

Pose: Marukin-Stillwater

Blinks. Is it really Thursday night? My heavy eyelids push open and close, relentlessly fighting dreams of missed opportunities. I will blog. I will blog.  

This past week the SL Blogging Support put out an Inspire Me Initiative. The initiative is more daily inspiration and ideas for those struggling with photography concepts.    Monday’s prompt was unforgettable quotations.  Sitting in my little space in SL, I thought of  the quotation from Emerson’s essay, “Self-Reliance,” but I had no idea how to convey my mind’s message, so I decide to go shopping for my 52 weeks of color outfit, the color Bittersweet.  Needless to say, those two challenges eventually merged into the picture above.  Hey, I can rock two challenges in one blog-post even if I can’t do it on time.

May we all fight the mundane and step outside of the box every once in a while, so we aren’t so enchanted by our shadows, but instead with a world teeming with possibilities.

I love that hair.  Thank you Truth!  It looks just like that braid Twiggy had!  So, I tried my best to do a look inspired by that photo.  It was all in fun!  The dress by Schadenfreude comes with a hud that allows you to change the top, middle, and bottom colors- Such a great additional feature!  You can find this dress on the Retro Sim at Vintage Fair.

Saved the Last Cupcake for You

I know. I am helplessly in love with The Festival of Sin and the creations for each category.  This lingerie from Schadenfreude is to die for.  I mean that.  It very well made, cute and sexy all in one.  What more could you ask for?  Oh, maybe a real cupcake.  Well, here is one just for you….

Congrats to me on 100 posts!  I might just steal that cupcake back in celebration. Eat it fast! *grabby hands*
