The Beauty of Art

A dear friend of mine showed me a photograph today and said it was an epic picture. It made me sad. An entire story unfolded in my head around this one photo about technology and change. I thought about how scary change becomes as we grow older. My friend thought the photo represented hope for the future along with lessons from the past. Then we both agreed that the photograph was a truly incredible work of art, because it stirred up such thoughts and emotions. We are both art lovers, but not in the uppity gallery snob kinda way. We love perusing the internet and discovering various forms of art to share, sometimes even discuss.
I found this topic quite fitting for this post, because the decor in this photo is primarily from Fancy Decor. The designer for Fancy Decor is Jake Vordun, who happens to be an avid art lover and has a soft spot for the classics. He’s not closed minded about modern art, though. He shares his finds and loves with anyone willing to explore The Vordun Museum,. There is not cost to explore the gorgeous museum and it is worth return visits as he switches out the exhibits quite regularly.
If art, particularly, various types of art is something you enjoy. I encourage you to do a quick search inworld and you’ll soon discover there is an endless array of art exhibits, as well as artists to discover in this amazing virtual world we call Second Life. That’s also why you’ll almost always find a piece of art accompanying his furniture collections.

Fancy Living

“I was barely in grade school when I helped my mother rearrange the living room furniture for the first time.” ~ Nate Berkus

We moved every two or three years, but our living rooms were rearranged at least three or four times a year. Why? Because my mother is crazy and always has been? I could write a book about all the different living room styles we had over the years. From peacock tapestries to bright orange walls. Oh yeah, she painted and wall papered, too. Living rooms were an easy target, but she had her sites set on the bathrooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms, as well. So, its no wonder that I have so much fun with decor in Second Life. It takes me longer to put together a scene and certainly longer to list the credits with links and tags. However, I tried to let it go once before and it broke my heart.

One thing leads to another

Bathrooms are the most intimate rooms in any home. We are rarely more vulnerable than we are in a bathroom, which is why movies like Psycho mess with us soooo bad! Just think about it, you shower and bathe in there….NAKED! We pull our pants down and sit on a porcelain seat with a hole in it that goes God knows where and God knows what could come up from there! Don’t act like it doesn’t happen, we’ve all seen the videos of snakes and stuff coming up out of the toilet! We even have the nerve to put a mirror in there! I mean, I know some of you look amazing naked and probably love staring at your bodies in the mirror, but I am not one of you!
The title of the blog is from that song by The Fixx. It really has nothing to do with the photo or the bathroom, but for some reason I couldn’t get that damn song out of my head when I was setting up the scene. Maybe its the trail of clothes….God only knows what I was thinking, but there you have it! Enjoy your next trip the bathroom…*smirks*

Condo Christmas

I am a sucker for skyboxes, but let’s face it, most of us use skyboxes because we don’t need a lot of space. Therefore, its fair to assume that most skyboxes won’t be very big. Although, some of them most certainly are as big if not bigger than some of the most popular houses. However, I tend to believe that most skybox lovers prefer the quaint spaces. Just like real life, decorating small spaces for holidays can often present its own challenges. So what if you don’t have a fireplace, you can hang those stocking from a shelf near a window. If Santa’s fat ass can find his way down a chimney, surely he can use that same magic to get through a window!

Life of the Party

As far back as I can remember, my mother has always set the most amazing tables for dinner parties and holiday gatherings. Needless to say, she’s always cooked far too much food. I’m not going to write a lot here, just that this entire scene is dedicated to my mom.

Dinner Table

My mother has always insisted that the room is actually the life of the party and decor plays a huge part in that.

last supper

The key to all of my mother’s dishes, fancy dinner or not, is presentation.

And no matter what, even when she’s lived completely alone, Christmas time requires decorations. It’s the law!

Challenge to Challenge

It’s that time of year again, when my demons come out the play and my brain just doesn’t want to focus all on its own. So, once again, rather than continue to slap lyrics and songs ALL the time…I am presenting my readers with a challenge. All five of you…lol. I have subscribers that look at the pictures, but I don’t think I have very many actual readers. You guys are my favorites and I can say that, cuz the others don’t read..lol. Ok, so…last year, I offered up a Dangerous Proposition and had a few people participate. I’m hoping that this year’s challenge will bring a few more responses. This year, the suggestions I’m looking for are a bit more specific, yet very random at the same time.
So, here goes…I’m looking to be challenged with two completely random things for me to compare or connect in some way. Some examples would be like…an apple and a wrench, a candle and a cellphone, a piece of cake and a paint brush. Sure, I could use these examples, but it would take the fun out of the challenge for me. This should be especially easy for Grace Sixpence, as last year she always gave me two random things to write about anyway. So, no, you can’t use the ones listed above. So, I challenge you to challenge me. If you’re a blogger that writes and would like to play along just add #challengetochallenge to your suggestion and I will send you two random items to write about, as well.

Every Leaf is a Flower

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ~Albert Camus

I love the changing of the leaves in fall. I live in a condo that has a lovely entrance and the avenue that comes down into our neighborhood is lined with the most colorful trees. Every fall, we are blessed with brilliant reds, bright golds, bold oranges…and not just on the trees, but on the ground and whisking around the cars as we generate a gentle wind. The crisp air tingles exposed flesh just enough to make you appreciate your sweater. As the world shifts from greens to the warmest of earth tones, we see the shift of decor in homes, yards, and stores. It makes me crave hot chocolate and caramel apples. I love how creative people get with their pumpkins, too. Reserving them for Autumn rather than mutilating them to make some jagged scene or face for Halloween. This is the coziest of all the seasons to me and though the shift in weather causes me to ache and hurt more physically than usual, I could never hate it.
