Winter at the pond

winter on the lake

Just  when  you think  Winter  is  over ( I so  want  it  to  be..its  cold  here!) Wayward  opened  their  winter  event The Wayward Winter. Its  full  of  amazing things..but  you  know me  I had  to  do  the  houses  first…well at  least  2  of  them. Both  are  gorgeous and  relatively low  prim. I  am  so  privileged  to be  a  part  of this  team  of  bloggers  and  I want to thank  Jenica for  sticking  by  me  though  the  rough  spots  I  have  had  lately.  I seem to  be  healing  well, save  for  the  bouts  here and  there and  hopefully  will  continue  to  get  my  mojo  back.

Coming up Brocante Couture

barque.1

Arcade, Arcade, Arcade! The event  is  roaring and the  lindens are  flowing. They should  be  flowing  into the  NOMAD  machine. The Brocante  collection is another one that can’t  be  missed, from the  dull yet amazingly textured collection to the  level of detail in the  mesh. One  never  go’s  wrong with contraption and this  is  my  favorite  collection  of  his..and..I  hear theres a  hidden  tune. I also threw  down another  piece  of the  8f8 collection to add a  bit  of  pop of  color..amazing as always.  I was  given an inside  track  onan  up and  coming creator..that being the  Knick Knack,  I just  love  books and these are  well made. I  did  make a  mess  of them..but..hey.. I am a man.

It’s a dogs life

It's a Dog's  life

Hello all! Im bringing  lots  of  goodies  today from 3 different  events and  somehow they all  matched..how did that  happen..hmmm? Apple Fall  released the  add-on exclusives for  his  new Hardwick Manor at FaMESHed ( the  Manor  is also  available at the  main store) and  it  is  fantastic!  The fireplace  and  broom fit so well  into the  manor  you would  think he  planned  it..oh wait..he  did. There  is also a free  gift from Apple Fall ,that  being some  of his original hand drawn art..make  sure  you  pick it  up as  its   a separate  item.  I also  received  the [Con.] offering  for C88 and  its marvelous. It  comes  in five  different  flavor, but  being a  man..I  had to display the  red. When I was  setting  up the  room I thought  to myself” what does that couch  need?”…..The  freakin {anc} flottante puppy is what  it  needed! I  only  have 3 words… OH MY GOD. last  but  not  least are the  absolutly fabulous *pm* Grand Cupped Curtains at TFC, I  know..I know..you  only  see  a bit  of  it..but  I am  telling  you they are a  must  have. They  come  with a  texture  change  hud that  has  a  plethora  of  colors..and  not  only  can  you  change the  front..but the  back as well..separately!

Travels

NoNo.1

Ok..now  I  know this  is a  hard thing to believe, but  I actually  got dressed today! I  found this awesome Vest  at Shiny Shabby and  just  had to share  it.  The ::K:: Villa Vest is  fit  mesh so make  sure  you  try  on the  demo first, but  it  fit  me  perfect and  also fits  most  of  my  jeans under .  theres a selection  of  6  different  vests to choose  from and  each gives you a hud  that  hs  a texture  hud  so you  can change  the  shirt color. It’s  very well done (  or i would not  have bought  it  and blogged  it) so make  sure you  do yourself or your  hubby a favor  and  go pick one  up. oh..i forgot to mention that there  is a lades  version…duh. I  had also been told  by a friend about a store  I  had never  heard  of that  being no.match. Why, why haven’t  I heard  of this!   I went  to the  store and tried  on a few  demos, the  hair  is amazing and  is right  on  par  with  most  of the  designers we all know  and  love.  The  color  palette and textures are  very well done and theres  even a  bit  of  unkept  hair..love  it..you’ll be  seeing a lot  of this one  just wait  and  see.  I also slipped  on a designer that I have  blogged and fapped  over  time  and  time again, that  being Deadwool. I  just can’t say enough about this  guy.

For the  Scene  I  pulled  out another  one  of  my  favorite  designers. I wanted to keep it simple and  uncluttered  for this  shot . But it had  to  be Apple Falls Single Mans’ Valentine from   February. I  know.. it’s  an older  item..but so am  I. I  am  floored every time this  man releases  something, the attention to detail is amazing. Hopefully  soon I will be able  to catch  up on everything  he has released…daym  it.

After The Storm

after the storm.2  edit

 

Yet more  goodies from The Shiny Shabby event. I still have a ton  more to bring you each of them very well done, as they should be for an event hosted by Neva.
I decided to use  we’re CLOSED once again for the background..why?..because I just  love their things! If you haven’t been to the sim yet you really  owe  it  to yourself to go. ( both  places mind you, The event sim and the we’re CLOSED store  sim) I have also included some unedited shots that are a bit closer so you can see the items  in all their glory.

A leap of faith

As I sit here in front of my computer typing away, I am trying to think of some way to connect my thoughts to the pictures below. And to connect with you, the one reading.
Dreams.1
Taking a leap of faith was so easy when I was a child. Every tree I climbed and then jumped out of. Getting the swing to go so high I thought I was going to spin all the way around the top. The ramps I made out of old bricks and boards, each time daring to go higher and faster. Even if I failed the first time, I got up, dusted myself off, made sure I wasn’t bleeding to bad or had any broken bones, ( those i had plenty of) and would temp fate once more. There were so many things that I needed faith to do…yet..the thought never crossed my mind.
As I got older and discovered love and the opposite sex things got a bit more complicated. I had to have faith in myself and the one I was with. Everyone of them was ” my one true love” the one I would marry and have children with. Those were many, some lasted a week, some months, some a few yrs. But every time it didn’t work..my faith dwindled..it was harder to have. It gradually got worse as my life went on. From relationships to employment, to the world in general. I found out that every leap has it’s own consequence, some good, some bad. But having faith..taking that first step off of what seemed an impossible height, got harder and harder.
leap of faith.1
That was until my pops got sick. I saw this man do everything the Doctors told him he couldn’t. Even after his colostomy and needing to wear the bag the rest of his life..he never quit. He never quit going on those fishing trips, he never quit gardening, he…never quit. Faith means so many things to so many different people. My pops showed me that. His last few years were full of choices that demanded faith..and like I was when I was a child..my dad never gave it a second thought.

Now for the goodies. The Secret Affair , Countdown room and Genre have so many things to offer. If you haven’t been…stop reading and go..go now!……………..You still here? Ok, but promise me after you will go have a gander as all the events are very much worth it.
