no peeking…

NoPeeking
Have you ever peeked inside one of your presents ~ were you happy you did or felt guilty afterward…One time during my high school years I had asked Santa *yes my parents made us still write Santa Lists*, for a pair of these very popular go-go boots *YES am old hehehe* My girlfriend kept pestering me about I should go peek to see if they got them ~ my tummy was rolling at that since peeking was not something I have ever done and really did not want to start now…since she lived 2 doors down and was always at my house she was becoming annoying with that question ~ on and on till I wanted to say shut up, stop, and alright already…end of the story is yes I did a small peek at the box that you could tell was a boot box but no I never fully opened it and the guilt of peeking was horrid ~ a little funny seeing even as a high schooler perfect was not a word to describe me ~ not a horrible person but did all that I could to push my parents buttons to the point of getting on restriction most of my teen years ♥ After my Dad passed away Christmas Eve was never the same especially for my Mom as her and my Dad would share that night putting out the pressies along with stocking stuff ~ one Christmas Eve  I wanted to do something special, before coming home from work, went to her favorite Chinese carryout, and splurged on her favorites that became our Christmas eve ritual for years to come…it is always nice to have those memories to look back to enjoy even if some are sad and not pleasant ♥ ♥ please remember December is the spirit of giving ♥

This was shot at a friends platform with the help of Delcinea and her partner Lord who I truly thank them for setting this up, giving me some suggestions & tips for future shots…

Pumpkin time…

PumpkinPatch

Remember I told you yesterday that I was going to show you there is more to Second Life than just shopping ~ yesterday a friend and I found this out of the way Pumpkin Patch that you can pick your own pumpkins and also carve them too♥ Seriously you can carve them if you want or let the carver surprise you ~ for me that is the fun part picking out pumpkins and seeing what kind of face you can make out of it ~ I chose 3 different kinds of pumpkins smooth, squished and blobby ~ you will have a waiting period to choose another pumpkin but you can spend that time wandering around looking in the store at the creators masks if you want…here is the result and yes my carving is so childish that I just said surprise me hehehe

Pretty cool right and they all look different ~ really good variety of different shapes for you to choose ~ seems there will be coming soon 2 more different pumpkin patches and I will try to revisit and give you a look ~ After you have chosen your pumpkin make sure you take a ride on the steam trolley that will ride you around the entire sim and see what else is available ~ the scenery is gorgeous with the fall leaves sporting their gorgeous fall colors ~

There are various places for some great photo ops and not wanting to give it all away but some interesting things to discover on the Sim itself ~ please take time to enjoy this sim and remember to visit Pumpkin Patch and get your share of those pumpkins ♥  Thanks goes to Punkrella Summers for creating this unique idea♥♥  I sent out a notecard to my friends and I love to have your help in sharing with me some of your favorite places to visit please♥ thanks bunches and for all those who do take time to read my blog posts it means so much to me ~ hugzz♥ till next time when I go back to revisit a really nice winery in SL ♥

Autumn Retreat…

AutumnRetreat

my bestie Dena Teardrop and I finally got together as RL along with time difference does at a time keeps us apart but when we do we have a blast giggling, laughing, listening and commiserating together…today we jumped in with both feet and again trying our hand at home decorating…Before I go any further I gotta give huge huge kudos to those that do this and make it look FANTASTIC! The decorating and setting the scene takes time and planning since you cannot change your lens like in RL to get those room shots ~ Wanna see some photographers that truly make this look effortless and gorgeous Wendz Tempest or Kess Crystal ~ and course my friend Moz Loordes ~ the cute little house was an FLF special by *Funky*Junk* ~ come inside where we spent time having fun, giggling, and what we didn’t think of was how to shoot this LOL ~ little out of my comfort zone umm let me rephrase that a LOT out of my zone ~ this is truly a learning experience ~ that said let me show you what we came up with…

The Left Half of the Room

From the pics looks like a huge room just again a reminder you truly have to plan when you are setting up a home decor blog pic ~ that is why there are right/left pics cuz honestly I was not thinking or maybe I was and in the back of my brain thought hey why not 2 pics umm sounds good huh lol ~ now you take the pic and yikes you gotta then start listing all the items so you can give credit to each ~ NOW that is a lot of work in itself and my sweet BESTIE Dena took the task to heart and did a PERFECT job, which love her for all she is ~ a true friend that puts up with me and my grumpy grouchy moods…sooo Kess, Wendz or Moz truly has nothing to worry about as Dena & I are truly noobies when it comes to Home Decor blogging hehehe but damn we do have FUN ♥
