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.

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*

Condo Christmas

I am a sucker for skyboxes, but let’s face it, most of us use skyboxes because we don’t need a lot of space. Therefore, its fair to assume that most skyboxes won’t be very big. Although, some of them most certainly are as big if not bigger than some of the most popular houses. However, I tend to believe that most skybox lovers prefer the quaint spaces. Just like real life, decorating small spaces for holidays can often present its own challenges. So what if you don’t have a fireplace, you can hang those stocking from a shelf near a window. If Santa’s fat ass can find his way down a chimney, surely he can use that same magic to get through a window!

Sady & Rina

So, it finally happened. I finally pinned Rina Edenflower down for a collaboration. She is so completely talented it blows me away and I humbled that she took the time to pose with me. In fact, she hosted our collaboration and look it….I had Rina’s hand on my thigh for hours!!! Don’t hate! Congratulate!! *grins* Seriously, this was so much fun and the time we spent together taking our photos was really fantastic. She is as beautiful inside as she is outside. I wish I could tell you her story, but it isn’t mine to tell. Let’s just say, you have no freaking idea what other people have gone through until you take the time to genuinely talk and listen. I love her more today than I imagined possible and I am so grateful to call her my friend. I truly hope that you will see more collaborations from the two of us in the future.

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.

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

Coffee House

“Wrap me in your arms
I can’t feel it but
Wrap me in your arms
I can’t feel it but…”
~Sylvan Esso – Coffee

I’ve always love quaint, comfy locally owned coffee shops. Long before Starbucks put itself in ever Target and strip mall they could fine, before Dunkin was better know for their coffee than their donuts, there were these amazing little coffee shops in my area. They made you feel at home. The coffee was great, the people were great, the atmosphere was great. Though each coffee house had its own energy and style, each one was equally welcoming. Sadly, when Starbucks and Dunkin popped up everywhere with their fancy little drive thru windows…and life got busier…and I pulled away from my friends…well, I don’t even remember the last time I was in one of those coffee houses.
I’m adding a little tagline/side note to end of each blog going forward, because my blog posts are being stolen for another site. ***So, please know if you are reading this on any site that suggests this post was originally published anywhere but SadyStyle by anyone other than Sadystika Sabretooth, you are reading a stolen post.
