“She looked like autumn, when leaves turned and fruit ripened.” ~ Sarah Addison Allen, Garden Spells

Autumn Spell

An SL friend came to my town in RL this weekend, and I got to show him around a city that was sunny, warm and enjoying the last breaths of summer. He said, “This is gorgeous! I love it here!” Right after he left, the temperature dropped 25 degrees, the rain and clouds rolled in, and it was back…

Another Life

A few weeks ago I was asked to review the Altamura mesh body. I had never worn a mesh body before, so it was a new thing for me. Put on the full body alpha, wear the mesh, adjust shape, fiddle with HUD. I wore the fitted mesh body over my shape, found it looked kind of wrong, and I…

“Oh, Maga, whenever I saw a woman who looked like you a clear, sharp pause would close in like a deafening silence, collapsing like a wet umbrella being closed. An umbrella, precisely.” ~ from Hopscotch by Jose Cortazar

Layla, you’ve got me on my knees.
Layla, I’m begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won’t you ease my worried mind.

~ “Layla” by Eric Clapton

I thought this great rocking song of desire was a perfect name for this sexy look, made better by fitted mesh. Start with this sexy dress that Kehl Razor hand crafted from mesh up to fit not only to standard sizes but also to match the rigging of the…

He’s Ba-ack!

He’s Ba-ack!

He’s back like a bad penny, like a persistent cold sore, like my property tax bill, like dandelions in spring, like tiny little seeds in my raspberry jam that jam themselves in between my teeth and I can’t get them out… well you get the point. Barely Texas has wheedled his way back into my blog.

He's Ba-ack!

Barely’s not about the accolades; he doesn’t care if he glitters or glares or struts. He just cares…

Sensitive Kind

092414 comp copy

Don’t take her for granted, she has a hard time
Don’t misunderstand her or play with her mind
Treat her so gently, it will pay you in time
You’ve got to know she’s the sensitive kind
Tell her you love her, each and every night
And you will discover she will treat you right

~ “Sensitive Kind” by JJ Cale

Sensitive Kind

JJ Cale’s song is the first I had ever heard about sensitive women. I tend to shy away from…

A Little Nonsense

Check this out! I hit the motherlode! The folks at MadPea made a darling collection of gacha items for the Arcade this month, and I lined them all up (after I played with each one, of course). Each one is interactive in its own special way, from the goofy Sticky Finger I wore on my finger and flung around to the…

Well I took a happy hour
And I ran it through your heart
Don’t you lose me to those blue skies
I still miss you when we swing apart

~ “Alexandra” by Hamilton Leithauser

Alexandra

It’s been a busy week for me. While I only generated a few blogs, I hit the events I wanted to blog, I set up the Dutchie house, I did my other work AND I made Honey Almond Cake. I also saw the launch of Damselfly’s newest…

A House is a Home

a house is a home where the chores are never done
where you spend your whole life running to and from
and if the life that you live is not the life you choose
make your child a home and start anew

~ “A House is a Home” by Ben and Ellen Harper

A House is a Home

As I blogged yesterday, my trip to the Home and Garden Expo 2014 was very fruitful. I found many home treasures for both exterior and interior. I decorated…
