Kissed by a Rose

I’m pretty thrilled with a few things in SL, right now.  Turnip’s Homes and Stuff released a fall version of the skydome Protest and I keep our house in, so now it finally looks like we’re moving past spring!  I still need to find some more fitting grass and maybe a tree or two, but I’ve got some ideas in mind.

This really helped encourage today’s bundled up look!  I got a cute new sweater from Blah. that I absolutely adore.  The line has a lot of bold and cutesy graphic options, and I picked the fox immediately.  They’ve been my favorite fluffy animal for a while, so it was no surprise.  The bottom prim for the shirt was easy to edit as you could adjust in one direction (width, height, depth) if you preferred, instead of only being able to size the whole item smaller or larger.  I had no trouble matching up the pattern from the layer to the prim because of this.  Being sculpted, extreme hip motions in poses can affect the fit and cause clipping, but it’s honestly pretty ao friendly!  I don’t mind wearing it out and about at all.  I also got a cute scarf from Tokidoki, a new store for me.  With some adjusting on size and orientation, and a little extra tinting, it added a really nice touch. ♥

And because it’s been in my head, and I’ve been listening and singing along for quite some time now, I thought I’d share the music of my mind with you.

“I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey,
Oooh, the more I get of you the stranger it feels, yeah…”


Hipsters and Paint.

There are times when the creative spark inspires us.  You may be moved to write a song, story, poem…  Or perhaps something more sentimental, like a love letter.  Maybe the muse pushes you in other directions, to sketch and paint and create a masterpiece with your hands.  It takes time and a certain amount of dedication to let the creative process flow through you and lead to a finished work.  To be quite honest, I’ve been slacking.  My inner muse screams at me every now and then, but I struggle to find the time and proper tools to get the vision in my mind translated into actuality.  As a result it’s been quite a while since I drew anything I really cared for…

But enough about me.  This post is sort of a late ode to Fifty Linden Fridays. Yes, I know it’s Saturday now, but I had the idea yesterday.  Unfortunately, I found myself passing out before it was achieved…  This seems to be a theme!  Weekends means Bubblegum Weekends, so I tinted the fun new Lamb hair I got (also from Collabor88!) into a deep shade of purple and rolled around in some paint!

And because it’s stuck in my head, I want to share it (and get it stuck in yours)!  Enjoy a random song from Mr. A-Z. ♥
