Trees & Thee

We interrupt your regular programming to tell you all about Trees & Thee before time runs out. With only less than 10 days before Santa drops down the chimney, we want to make sure that YOU are ready for the biggest holiday of the year!!!

Whether you want to pick a live tree, cut your own, or have us cut one for you, we know you don’t want one of those plastic fake trees. You want the real deal and we’ve got just the right tree for you! We’ve got Pine, Fir, Spruce and Cedar! Oh, but that’s not all! We’ve got ornaments, decor, and gifts! So, make sure to swing through our gift shop for any last minute gifts. We’ll even help you strap your special tree to the roof of your vehicle. And if you tip well, we will put in a good word with Santa! *winks*

Trees & Thee
C’mon down to Trees & Thee and pick up a tree or three!

The truth is you can get all your Christmas needs at Tannenbaum, but I’m doing a thing here, okay? Thanks!

Dangerous Proposition

Alright, so its been happening to me a lot lately, that I’m hitting a wall when it comes to something to write about. I know, that may come as quite a shock to some of my friends as I’m usually quite chatty with them, but for some reasons I’ve really struggled with things to say lately. I’d hate to turn my blog into nothing but pictures and songs. However, at the rate I’m going these days I fear that may soon become the case. So, for those of you that actually read my blog, I am asking you to submit some questions or topics for me to write about. No matter how silly or insane, I will make it a point to write SOMETHING about whatever is suggested. So, toss me a comment below or on my Facebook page and I will give it my best shot! I fear this is a dangerous proposition, because some of you might give me something insane, but I’m going to do it…so there’s the challenge!

Help Yourself by Helping Others

“The best way to cheer yourself up, is to cheer somebody else up.” -Mark Twain

I believe this to be true wholeheartedly. For ages, people have figured out that the best way to get out of you own head is to help other people. When we sit too long in our own problems we can drown in them and find ourselves so lost that we begin to lose hope. It’s when we lose hope that we truly become miserable and that is when we are the most dangerous…to ourselves and everyone around us. Our misery makes us toxic. Think about how good it feels to help someone in need. I don’t mean dropping a few dollars into the bucket with the bell ringers at the holidays. I mean, to support a friend and watch them succeed. I mean, to hand a meal to a homeless person. I mean opening our hearts and genuinely helping someone that is going through something so wretched, that we can’t begin to fathom the road on which they travel.
We’ve all had things go terribly wrong from time to time. We’ve all watched someone else suffering and felt absolutely helpless from the sidelines, especially in a virtual world. However, there is something happening right now that could forever change someone’s life in such a wonderful way. It hasn’t started yet, but it shall begin soon. In the meantime, I want to spread the word and I hope that you will, too. A dear friend of mine has undergone the unthinkable this year and despite it all, she has maintained the same positive attitude that made so many of us love her from the very beginning. I won’t go deep into it here, but if you’d like to help someone that not only needs help…and would never in a million years ask….there’s about to be a fundraising event and there’s something for everyone.

This Dress

Sometimes an outfit just inspires a photo, but the only words are about the outfit itself. This is one of those times. *shrugs* The new Serenity dress from United Colors can be picked up at the latest round of Tres Chic. This dress is to die for, as it comes with so many options, its almost impossible to pass up the fatpack for this one. First of all, it can be a full length gown or a short club dress like you see here. There’s a cross over in the front with the option of making the right bra cup sheer, not to mention the six color options for the bottom as well as both breasts. There’s also a materials on/off option! So, yes, you can do like I did and make it monotone, but for those that want to mix it up, there are plenty of fun ways to do that, too. Oh, almost forgot to mention, there’s color options for the straps, too! I just can’t imagine any sexy woman’s inventory could be complete without it. ♥

No Place For You

It was the end of summer and she had decided to take a walk down to the Charcuterie for some of Peter’s famous sausages. They would be perfect with the apples she had picked that morning. As she walked along the dirt road she came across the most adorable little piglet, she scooped him up just as she approached Peter’s place. The little pig was so cute as she squealed in her face.
She smiled lovingly at her new pet, “I shall call you Wilbur, but you have to promise not to bring home any friends named Charlotte!” As she approached the door for Peter’s it dawned on her that she should take her new pet home first, “This is no place for you, Wilbur! No place at all!”

What We Want

Dear Blueberry,

This blog post is dedicated to you and your amazing team. Why is it titled, “What We Want?” Well, because we all want to blog for you! I don’t know a single blogger that doesn’t want to blog for you. Now, with that said, I am extremely blessed to blog for some of the most amazing and incredible designers on the grid, but there are certain stores that have been on my wishlist to blog for…well…since I started taking blogging seriously and realizing that I wanted to blog only for brands that I could fully support and maintain my integrity. So, to the gorgeous and talented Blueberry team, I implore you to take on some fresh meat…oh and did I mention that my birthday is October 6th and that it would be a really awesome pressie if I was to be accepted on your blogging team? Well, it was worth a shot! Regardless of what I get, I know for sure what we all want is MORE BLUEBERRY!!!♥

Love Bites

Josh and I both did our own versions of this photo, which I’ve posted below. We also decided that only a song would fit the photo. So, per my usual tactics, I’m providing a link and the lyrics. ♥

Def Leppard – Love Bites

If you’ve got love in your sights
Watch out, love bites
When you make love, do you look in your mirror?
Who do you think of?
Does he look like me?
Do you tell lies?
And say that it’s forever?
Do you think twice, or just touch and see?
Ooh, babe
Ooh, yeah
When you’re alone, do you let go?
Are you wild and willing or is it just for show?
Ooh, come on

I don’t want to touch you too much baby
‘Cause making love to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that love is the way you make it
So I don’t want to be there when you decide to break it, no

It’s bringing me to my knees (love lives, love dies)
It’s no surprise (Love begs, love pleads)

It’s what I need
When I’m with you are you somewhere else?
Am I getting through or do you please yourself?
When you wake up will you walk out?
It can’t be love if you throw it about
Ooh babe, I don’t want to touch you too much baby
‘Cause making love to you might drive me crazy, oh

It’s bringing me to my knees (love lives, love dies)
It’s no surprise (Love begs, love pleads)
It’s what I need

Oh yeah, I don’t want to touch you too much baby
‘Cause making love to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that love is the way you make it
So I don’t want to be there when you decide to break it, no

It’s bringing me to my knees (love lives, love dies)
(Love bites, love bleeds)
It’s bringing me to my knees (love lives, love dies)
It’s no surprise (love begs, love pleads)
It’s what I need
If you’ve got love in your sights
Watch out, love bites
Yes it does, it will be hell

Walking The Birds

People looked at her strangely as she and her cat paraded about carrying birds that would fly about only to return to their perches upon them. She didn’t find it at all strange to take her birds for a walk and neither did her cat. Even the other birds would look at them strangely, but she couldn’t understand why it was such an odd thing to be walking the birds. *giggles*

Show Some Love

So, there’s been a lot of hurt feelings on Facebook this week, because of a newish thing called Sarahah. It was designed for businesses so that employees could leave constructive feedback for each other, but it quickly found its way to Facebook and the SL community latched on. We were off and running. Many people refused to take part, knowing full well they would not take it well if insulted or while others publicly voiced their disdain for the site suggesting that if one could not say it without hiding behind anonymity they had no business saying it at all. Meanwhile, many were like me and saw it as something fun to do and jumped right off the bridge into the Sarahah internet river.
From there it either went uphill or downhill. For many it went downhill very quickly. Designers got attacked rather viciously. Yes, many of them received a lot of praise as well, but actual constructive criticism seemed to be absent. Many others reported being attacked and bullied. While some of these people took it in stride, others were quite hurt by the cruel words they found from anonymous contributors. A few even became aware of several secret admirers. While others found disturbing messages about people wanting to wear their skin or keep their eyeballs in jars. *giggles* I can’t begin to imagine who would have left such disturbing messages. *giggles again* I think almost everyone received some positive and loving messages, regardless of whatever else they found.
I personally received a total of 34 messages, most of which were very loving, kind, and positive. I was quite surprised and honestly, I little disappointed. I had prepared myself for some serious insults. I thought surely someone would be hateful, but I was quite fortunate. I think the closest I came to an insult was a rather astute observation from someone claiming not to know me very well. I had to laugh, because they were pretty accurate with what they said although they used an outdated terminology for their diagnosis of my mental health. *laughs* I had a few somewhat flirtation comments and a few that made no sense. I got no weird or insulting comments. Mostly, it was love and I was overwhelmed.
I was quite surprised by the reactions of a few that received negative comments. Some basically threw tantrums all over Facebook. Others quickly realized they did not possess the thick skin necessary to handle cowardly insults and shut down their Sarahah links. While others kept up their pages and found a new topic to bitch about on social media.
I am saddened that so many used it to bully and abuse others, but so goes the way of the internet. I think it’s important for everyone to remember that no matter what hateful or negative comments you received, there are far more people that love you. You are beautiful and wonderful in your own way. You are all amazing creatures. Whether you participated or not, please know that you are loved…not just by me, but many others. It is my hope that this weekend we will all remind the ones we love that they are special to us. As you proceed through your weekend and eventually into next week, show some love…not just to others, but to yourselves as well. ♥
