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.

Do I Wanna Know?

“Do you ever get the feeling that you can’t shift the tide
That sticks around like something’s in your teeth
And some aces up your sleeve
I had no idea that you’re in deep
I dreamt about you near me every night this week
How many secrets can you keep’
‘Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow
When I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep”
~ Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know?

Get Her Head Right

She was really looking forward to a night out with the girls. It had been so long since they’d all hung out without boyfriends and being the only single one in the group…this was definitely a rare opportunity for her. She got herself dressed super cute, with one of her shortest off the shoulder dresses and her newest pair of thigh high boots. She was almost ready. She just needed to get her head right.
She found the small trinket box in the bottom drawer of her armoire and pulled out a blunt. She pulled it under her nose like a fancy gent would smell a proper Cuban cigar. She lit and took a deep hit. She closes her eyes as she let the THC wash over her and immediately take her mind on that nice little floating coaster that only begins to settle over her like a warm fog when she exhales slowly. Hmmmm, yes, this is some fine weed. He did good.

Fall Into Autumn

Oh get your dirty minds out of the gutter, I am not talking about some hot girl named Autumn. Yeah, I know my readers. *laughs* I’ve been working on this room for over a week. I kept adding to it, taking away, moving this, replacing that.  Finally, I got it the way I want it. I look at the room and wish I could sink down in that couch with a good book. It sorta dawned on me, that I have a beautiful living room with furniture that is less than a year old and superbly comfortable. It needs to cool off first, that room is almost all windows and its too bright…too hot in there. *hisses at the sun*

Fall Into Autumn

I used Fancy Decor: Faline Wall Panels (gold) to create the room.

Let the Stories Unfold

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

In honor of the quote and all the designers that have pieces in this setting, I leave you to explore, as there are many stories to be told, if you simply open your mind and let the stories unfold.

Roses and Me

I think I have a strangle love/hate relationship with roses. I’ve never been a big fan of them, because I found them quite commercial and too cliche’. My mother has always loved them and whenever she’s been able to have a garden, she has had rose bushes of various types over the years. I don’t particularly like the smell, nor am I all that fascinated with any type of botany, much less roses. My favorite flower has always been the Gerber daisy, they’re hard to grow (at least for me) and they don’t last too long in a vase either. Fake ones are never mistaken for real ones and I find them to be much more special and alluring. However, with all of that said, the older my mom and I get, the more I appreciate the things she loves…like roses. I don’t want to wait until she’s gone to appreciate something she loves. So, more and more, I’ve found myself smiling upon the sight if roses.

Though you can’t see them super well in the photo below, Dahlia did these amazing tins with roses on top for the Sept round of TLC. I was so excited by them, that I had to include them in this post. You can bet you will see them again and again, as they are the perfect touch for every room in the house.

Office Stuff

I’ve had a weakness for office furniture and supplies since I was a child. I have no idea why. I remember having a small walk in closet in one house, I used a tv dinner table as a desk and two chairs in there with a lamp and made it my private office. I would sit in there for hours, writing stories, coloring, drawing…pretending to do office stuff. I was over the moon when I got my first type writer and eventually I had a real desk. It was absolutely glorious. I had designed it myself and my father made it by hand for me. Now in SL, I probably have more stuff for a home office than any other room in a house. *giggles*
Yes, I know. I’m a weirdo.

Virtual Living

Before my real life shifted and I began withdrawing from the world around me, I was quite social in real life.  I loved hosting dinner parties and I was oddly fortunate enough to have too many friends to invite to every single one. I would set the table as elaborately as I could and there was always dessert. After dinner, we would sit around and play games, usually something that I made up.  Sometimes I miss those days, but there’s really no reason why we can have dinner parties in Second Life. So, there might not be real food, but we can sit around a table with some wine or whatever you drink, have great conversations, then play some games. Virtual living really is amazing when you think about it.
Thanks to amazing designers like Fancy Decor and all the others listed below, we can live life to the fullest from behind our keyboards. With all of the amazing creations for home decor, with just a little money, you can live the life of your dreams here and that’s just one more reason I love SL. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Happy Shopping!♥

The Classy Cougar

When I was younger, there was this woman, my mother’s age, that lived in my neighborhood that always fascinated me. At the time, I thought how much I’d like to be like her one day. Alas, that was not my destiny. She was beautiful and elegant, at least I thought so. Mind you, I was young and rather impressionable, not to mention naive. I just remember that she wore lingerie whenever you saw her at home. No, not pajamas, but beautiful lingerie, with long sheer, lace robes…some even had that furry stuff around the edges…and heels! Oh, she always had on heels to match. She was quite popular, as I’m sure you can imagine. How does the line in the song go…”She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends.” She definitely had those.
For a long time, I just watched her in admiration, imagining what life was like inside her apartment. I eventually met her and she was every bit as amazing in person. I went inside her apartment and it was amazing. The colors, the curtains…she had so many beautiful things. I got to know her over the coming months. I could probably write an entire book about her. Instead, I’m sharing a brief memory of a glamorous Nubian queen that I met once upon a time, because when setting up this photo I thought of her. Isn’t it funny the impressions that people sometimes leave on our lives?
