Hidden Treasure

Have you ever played one of those hidden clue games? There’s several on Facebook, plenty of apps for phones, etc. You find the hidden objects and progress through the story. The picture with the hidden objects usually reflect that particular part of the story. Well, when I initially started setting up this scene….I ended up chasing squirrels all over the internet. What started out as a squirrel’s Halloween party quickly turned into a hidden object picture. Except, you don’t have to find them, they are all listed below with slurls so that you can go grab your own fun Halloween and Autumn decor! Happy shopping!♥

Take Me Home

This song just really reminds me of why our homes should be a place of safety, a place of warmth. A place where we are surrounded by wonderful memories and some of our favorite creature comforts. I took a break from blogging home decor, wanting to focus on fashion, but I quickly realized that I missed it way too much.
Home
A place where I can go
To take this off my shoulders
Someone take me home
Home
A place where I can go
To take this off my shoulders
Someone take me home
Someone take me
Look, I didn’t power through the struggle
Just to let a little trouble, knock me out of my position
And interrupt the vision
After everything I witnessed, after all of these decisions
All these miles, feets, inches
They can’t add up to the distance
That I have been through, just to get to
A place where even if there’s no closure, I’m still safe
I still ache from trying to keep pace
Somebody give me a sign, I’m starting to lose faith
Now tell me, how did all my dreams turn to nightmares?
How did I lose it when I was right there?
Now I’m so far that it feels like it’s all gone to pieces
Tell me why the world never fights fair
I’m trying to find
Home
A place where I can go
To take this off my shoulders
Someone take me home
Home
A place where I can go
To take this off my shoulders
Someone take me home (it’s been a long time coming)
Someone take me
Home, home
Home, home
Someone take me
Home, home
Home, home
Look, I been through so much pain
And it’s hard to maintain, any smile on my face
‘Cause there’s madness on my brain
So I gotta make it back, but my home ain’t on the map
Gotta follow what I’m feeling to discover where it’s at
I need the (memory)
In case this fate is forever, just to be sure these last days are better
And if I have any (enemies)
To give me the strength to look the devil in the face and make it home safe
Now tell me, how did all my dreams turn to nightmares?
How did I lose it when I was right there?
Now I’m so far that it feels like it’s all gone to pieces
Tell me why the world never fights fair
I’m trying to find
Home
A place where I can go
To take this off my shoulders
Someone take me home
Someone take me
I found no cure for the loneliness
I found no cure for the sickness
Nothing here feels like home
Crowded streets, but I’m all alone
I found no cure for the loneliness
I found no cure for the sickness
Nothing here feels like home
Crowded streets, but I’m all alone (someone take me)
Home, home
Take me home
Home, home, take me home
Someone take me
Home, home (someone, someone, no place like home)
Home, home
(Someone take me)

with you I am home

Sad Girl

Once upon a time, I lived a different kind of life…music takes me on the most delicious journey through my mine field of memories….
Being a mistress on the side
It might not appeal to fools like you
We’ve been around on the side
Wanna be something you would do
But you haven’t seen my man
You haven’t seen my man
You haven’t seen my man
You haven’t seen him
He’s got the fire and he walks with fame
He’s got the fire and he talks with fame
His Bonnie on the side, Bonnie on the side
Makes me so sad, girl
His money on the side, money on the side
Makes me so sad, girl
I’m a sad girl, I’m a sad girl, I’m a sad girl
I’m a sad girl, I’m a bad girl, I’m a bad girl
Being a bad bitch on the side
It might not appeal to fools like you
We’ve been around when he gets high
It might not be something you would do
But you haven’t seen my man
You haven’t seen my man
You haven’t seen my man
You haven’t seen him
He’s got the fire and he walks with fame
He’s got the fire and he talks with fame
His Bonnie on the side, Bonnie on the side
Makes me so sad, girl
His money on the side, money on the side
Makes me so sad, girl
I’m a sad girl, I’m a sad girl, I’m a sad girl
I’m a sad girl, I’m a bad girl, I’m a bad girl
Watch what you say to me
Careful who you’re talking to
Watch what you say to me
Careful who you’re talking to
I’m on fire, baby
I’m on fire
He’s got the fire and he walks with fame
He’s got the fire and he talks with fame
His Bonnie on the side, Bonnie on the side
Makes me so sad, girl
His money on the side, money on the side
Makes me so sad, girl
I’m a sad girl, I’m a sad girl, I’m a sad girl
I’m a sad girl, I’m a bad girl, I’m a bad girl
I’m a sad girl, I’m a sad girl, I’m a sad girl
I’m a sad girl, I’m a bad girl, I’m a bad girl

Can They Truly Be Separate?

I’m a big profile perv. I love to see what people share, how they talk, or whether they’ve decided to keep it blank. Either way, I tend the find the 1st Life tab the most interesting, as so many will put something about keeping RL separate from SL. I assume they mean that they prefer to keep the details of their real lives a secret and quite possibly their second lives are a secret from those in their real lives, as well. However, I am always left wondering does anyone truly believe that its possible to keep them entirely separate?
Isn’t the real you the one typing on the keyboard? Isn’t every thought you share in SL coming from the brain (or lack there of) in your real life head? Don’t you dress to appeal to yourself? How is it possible to be so completely separate unless your entire existence here is a complete and total lie? Even then, you are bound to have a few honest thoughts slip through the cracks. Even a catfish tends to share some truths about themselves.
I suppose its not really important. It’s just something I wonder about from time to time and always makes me look at the people that write that as kind of odd. Why do you need to announce to the world that you’re keeping a secret? As a person with major trust issues, it tends to make me leery of them regardless of their intent and pull away.

Tomayto, Tomahto

“Prosecuted, stabbed, tomayto, tomahto,” she laughed as she stood watching the bill collector run away after dropping off the bills. Her JIAN Chipmunk Collection :: Companion looking equally intimidating. She looked down to see that the tax man had dropped his 7 – Scientific Calculator. She stomped down on the machine with her Phedora ~ Spectra heels and waved to the men running in fear.
She smiled sweetly as Chip (the chipmunk, duh!) began chewing at the edges of the parcels, “Silly men, surely they saw my 7 – BillPosters sign! Now don’t eat that stuff, we have plenty of nuts inside, just chew it up and spit it out.”

Living Room

One of the greatest parts of blogging decor is that when you move and new stuff starts coming out, not only do you have all these great rooms to decorate for your blog…you can leave it up to live in if you so choose! That’s exactly what I did with my latest unKindness items! I got the fireplace from the September round of FaMESHed and the frames on the mantel are currently at ManCave…it was all too perfect. Paired it all up with some of my favorite furnishings from the last couple of years and presto. I present to you my very eclectic boho living room. Yes, this is in my SL house…more stuff will end up on the shelves as I collect it but for now, this is how it looks and we love it! Click the photo to go on over to flickr and get a closer look!♥

A Broken Phone Booth

“Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
Does summer come for everyone?
Can humans do as prophets say?
And if I die before I learn to speak
Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
But half asleep?”
Primitive Radio Gods – Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand

This is one of those songs that I’ve probably heard at least 100 times. I liked it a lot. The chorus is quite catchy with the lyrics like:
“I’ve been downhearted baby,
I’ve been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met”

and the “Do do do do do do”

However, it wasn’t until I looked up the actual lyrics that I was truly moved by the poetry of it. The melody is certainly hypnotic, but now I think its going to be one of my favorite songs all because I took the time to really read the lyrics in a stand alone manner, like poetry. Which, of course, is something I can truly appreciate as I used to write quite a bit of poetry and on occasion, I still do. I even have another blog for my poetry, that I’ve sadly neglected for a very long time.
I was talking to Josh about writing last night and of course, he’s very supportive and encouraging, but I simply don’t have the drive I once did for such things. My own poetic words have abandoned me, but alas I’m still full of cra…erhm…I mean plenty of random musings like this one.

telephone_005

Anyway, I’d like to wrap up this post with a moment of silence as I send positive thoughts, love & healing light to all of those in Manchester…what happened last night was an immense tragedy and while it breaks my heart that this has happened at all. The way the English people came together to assist one another somehow manages to restore just a little of my faith in humanity and the strength of communities.

Musical Musings

I was shopping with my mother when Kid Rock’s Cowboy came on the radio. Before I knew it, I was shushing her and singing along with Kid Rock, doing my best to emulate the synthesized portions of the chorus as well as the alternating high notes.

Cowboy, baby
(With the top let down and the sunshine shinin’)
Cowboy, baby
(West Coast Chillin’ while the boone’s whinin’) I want to be a cowboy, baby
(Ride at night ’cause I sleep all day) cowboy, baby
(I can smell a pig from a mile away)
pupkins

As we pulled up to a red light, I’m still rocking out and smiling all happy. I look over at my mother and she’s staring out the window with the funniest look on her face. Mind you, I did not stop singing, but it did make me laugh a little inside. You see, my mother is not a huge music fan…I know, she has no soul, but that explains a lot, too, doesn’t it? I might also mention that she just turned 70 in August.  Anyway, since that moment at the stop light, I could not stop thinking how strange and foreign that must seem to her. I haven’t seen her sing along with a song since I was a teenager. It was right after her divorce and she was hanging out with another divorce’ going to this country bar every other Friday night. She drove me absolutely nuts and horrified me to no end with her off key rendition of Randy Travis’ Diggin Up Bones. It wasn’t quite as bad as her complete lack of rhythm when trying to dance, but she only danced in our living room after getting home from the bar. She sang in the car! People could see her and possibly hear her in traffic!

So, if I was that mortified as a teenager, how must she feel as a reserved older woman who is not remotely familiar with Kid Rock’s music? So, I decided to ask her…
There are somethings you regret the moment you put the wheels in motion.
What started off as what I thought was an innocent question, quickly turned into a debate. She proceeded to tell me how none of my music made any sense and that she thought it was rude of me to expect her to be quiet just because a song came on the radio. I then felt compelled to point out that we could ride in silence for half an hour, but the minute I say, “OH! I love this song!” and turn up the radio she feels the need to read signs and point out not at all interesting things she sees out the window. *sigh*
I guess I’ll never know how truly odd it is for her, because I’m damn sure not asking her again!

Falling for Fall

I’m hard pressed to pick “favorites” of anything and its those types of questions that always make the me facepalm in my head. What’s your favorite color? Well, seriously it depends on what its being applied to…generally speaking I want to say black. Although, technically black is not a color. (Something drummed into my head by art teachers over the years.) If someone asks me what my favorite food is…just forget it. I can’t even! However, ask me my favorite season and without hesitation my answer will be Fall/Autumn! Favorite month? October! Why is this one so easy? Well, its simple. My birthday AND Halloween are both in October. Those just so happen to be my favorite holidays, too! Yes, my birthday is a holiday, thank you very much! Don’t hate! Celebrate, because tis the season!
fall2
Despite this being my favorite season, I am NOT a pumpkin spice addict. I like pumpkin pie and my mom’s pumpkin roll(its like a jelly roll or yule log, sorta…its to die for!). That’s about it. Sure, I admit it. I’ll try the other stuff that’s pumpkin flavored and for the record..somethings do NOT belong in my coffee and pumpkin is one of those things…BLECH! I’m thinking I might like that Rumchata drink everyone is talking about…I’ll get back to you on that…then again, it has Rumchata in it..that’s enough to hook me.
fall3
Naturally I went completely bonkers when I saw the pumpkin patch set from Fancy Decor, top that off with the broken wagon, and hay bales…omgaw..I am in autumn heaven. I couldn’t stop with just one picture and you can be sure you’ll see these gorgeous pumpkins again and again this season!
