The Color Pink

I don’t know why the color pink just feels so natural in a bedroom. Even in my real life bedroom, the minute my ex moved out of the bedroom? I started adding pink. Maybe I’m trying to climb back into the womb. Metaphorically, of course. Although, there was this one time that I had painted my room this beautiful salmon pink, because I fell in love with Sara’s bedroom in Sweet November. Shortly there after, my friend Justin came over and I showed him my bedroom. The first thing he said was, “I feel like I just walked into a giant vagina.” Needless to say, I’ve never had pink walls again. Though I didn’t repaint that bedroom. In fact, my friend Matthew had the pleasure of painting over that pink when he took over my lease. *giggles*
However, the luxury of Second Life allows me to have pink walls one day and gray the next. I love being able to change decor and clothing with the click of a few buttons. It still might take me all day to get the job done, but at least I’m not wrestling with paint brushed, pulling my back out with oversized furniture, or wrestling with jeans that have clearly shrunk in the last few months. *look around innocently and hides her candy*

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.

Nothing Lasts

“I pray to God
To stop these thoughts
It works for me
Can’t you see
I know that I’m better
I’m writing this letter
To my past self
Sitting on the shelf

Nothing lasts
It’s for the best
I won’t stay here
I won’t stay there
‘Cause now I’m happy
For You have changed me
I am so thankful
No longer painful”

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.

A Journey

“Life is a journey, not a destination.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are the architects of our own lives. It’s up to us to look around at the things that bring us joy. to stop always focusing on the finish line, and start looking at the journey. This applies to people, places, and things. Whether rich or poor, we have a say in some of these things and whenever we have that power, we should take advantage of it. For instance, the people in our lives, our place in life, the things we own….all of these things we surround ourselves with are interchangeable. Perhaps not instantly, but these changes are as much a part of our journey as anything else. There’s no where easier to make these changes than in Second Life, so if  you’re not happy with your current situation, do what you need to do to change it. No sense tormenting yourself for the entire journey or the destination won’t be worth getting to at all.

Create Fantasy

“A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy,” – Juan Montoya

This is exactly how I feel about decorating. I absolutely love decorating, especially in Second Life. I will say that listing everything in a decor blog can be a bit tedious, but the end result is always so satisfying and I find the process to be almost like meditation.
In the middle of writing this, I was delivered some rather alarming news in Second Life and found out that I have to speak with my real life ex in a couple of hours. So, my train of thought is lost, but by all means, check out the scene and all the amazing creations listed below. Happy Shopping!♥

Cats, Naps, & Snacks

I know that Bueno didn’t make this shirt specifically for me. However, he might as well have made it for me, cuz these are three of my favorite things. In fact, just yesterday afternoon, I laid down for an 8 hour nap with my cat, Mr. Mayhem. I know, I know, 8 hrs is a full night’s sleep. It was only supposed to be a nap! Well, I’m fully rested now, I can tell you that! As for Mr. Mayhem, he’s a little upset that its pouring down rain and he can’t go out for his morning romp around the building. As for the snack, well, I had a rather pleasant bowl of steamed broccoli and rice around 2am. It was quite nice and not too heavy, considering the hour. As it IS pouring down outside, I imagine, the cat and I will probably enjoy another nap soon….perhaps we’ll even share a snack. Though, his treats kinda taste like ass…so I’m not sure we’ll share a snack. It’s the weekend, so maybe you’ll be able to enjoy a nap yourself. In the meantime, happy shopping!♥

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*
