Who let the dogs out?

Oh yeah, I went there. Don’t worry, I’m not linking lyrics and a YouTube link today. I feel pretty sure that the song is already playing in your head. *grins* You’re welcome. Here’s the thing, though, these dogs are outside! Somebody let them out…was it you? No. It was Jian! They did the Saint Bernards! So, we’ve all seen the pictures of these dogs with the brandy keg hanging from their necks, but the truth is they don’t really do that. However, they are well known as rescue dogs and were bred for that reason. If you’d like to know a little bit more, I’ll point you to the Wikipedia page. It’s a quick read and pretty damn interesting to see how they got their names and where the whole barrel around the neck came from!

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!

Blanket and Magnet

It’a another Challenge to Challenge post!! First off, I have to fangirl just a bit. Exis actually gave me this challenge and I’m a huge fan of her work. If you’re not familiar with her, you must check her out! So, she gave me blanket and magnet, which worked out perfectly for this post, because of the dogs. Let the short story unfold…

She didn’t have children in the traditonal sense, but she had two beautiful female huskies that she referred to as her dogters. Blanket and Magnet were named for their behavior, as Blanket had dragged around some type of covering since she was brought home. She had quickly discovered how to cover herself with it, too. Magnet followed Blanket every where and always had to be touching Blanket or the blanket she used to cover herself. This was to be their first Christmas as adult dogs and though Sady was quite sure that her furry children had no understanding of the holiday, she wanted it to be special for them. Each day they received a special little treat from the advent calendar and each day she added more to their Christmas scene. Magnet had gotten tangled up in the lights, but didn’t want them removed. For now, Sady would allow it. She drank her hot cocoa as she reflected on the past year and everything that had happened. She looked lovingly at her girls and found gratitude that there were at least two creatures in her life that had yet to betray her.

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.

The Foyer

The foyer of a home is like the catch all, when you come in the door and have to bolt for the bathroom. I don’t know about you, but it never fails that I’ve got my arms full and that’s the exact moment that I need to pee! I was so excited about these sets from Silence. Although they were designed for a hallway, I could not help myself. I had to use them to decorate the foyer in my new skybox. I added some clutter to reflect that moment right after I get home from a day of running errands and shopping. Drops my bags on the floor, except the tacos and coffee….those are precious and can’t be trusted on the floor with the cats around. *giggles* It might have a fancy name like the foyer, but I think mine should be called the rush in and catch it room.

That amounts for another week on my own
Now I’m a novel made resourceful
I start a chain with my thought
Talk is cheap, my darling
When you’re feeling right at home
I wanna make you move with confidence
I wanna be with you alone
Said help me help you start it
You’re too comfortable to know
Throwing out those words
Oh, you gotta feel it on your own”

Ingredients

I am such a sucker for decor and houses in SL. I took a break from blogging home decor for a few months a while back and I missed it so bad, I had to return. I’m far from being one of the top home decor bloggers, but I can promise you that it tears at my heart each time I build a scene and tear it down. However, once in a while I come across things that scream to me that they should be together. That is exactly what happened to me when I saw this kitchen set at 6 Republic and then saw this skybox from Toro. There are only a couple of days left in that event, so if you don’t make it, be sure to swing by Seraphim to see what you missed, then hit up the mainstores to collect the ingredients you’ll need for your dream home.crave kitchen

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.

In My Head

So, if you relate the first bit of lyrics below, click the link and you can sing along, read along, or just listen to the rest of the song. I’m not much in the mood to talk about my feelings at the moment, but the song is a clue for those that care. I don’t really expect anyone to…so its another post with lyrics. It’s 4am and this is where I am in my head.

“I know it’s not the same
But I feel it any way
Tell me if that’s okay
No, I’ll be on my way
Should’ve known, now I feel insane
Am I insane?
I’ve waited way too long
Yeah, I know you’ve changed
You have a different face to me
I guess that I was wrong
I’m the one to blame
And that’s a shame, you see
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re in my head
And I keep on forgettin’
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re here instead
And it seems never ending
Uhh-uh-uh-uhh, I know, I know you’ve changed
You don’t feel the same
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re in my head…”
