afternoon w/bestie…

Afternoon with Bestie
Dena and I always look for furniture that looks good and has some nice poses that are not always just adult ~ we hit the prize with Dreamland Designs ~the Secret Love Antique Chaise that is exclusive to TWE12VE ~ it does not only look good in its rich color but has such a nice variety of poses inside it ~ we tried the friends poses and they are fresh and new as you see above ~ DD has made 2 versions a PG and Adult for those that like something a little more risque and kinky ♥  Still in the PG version you will get the Cuddles, Male/Female sits, Friends poses and even reading poses ~ quality rates up there in 5 stars along with I do like the detailing that makes it look antique ♥  We both agree it is worth the Lindens and a trip to TWE12VE to try out the demo ~ here is Dena’s version with a different pose ~ stick around as we turn ourselves into naughty maids hehehe…hugzz to all and please remember to be kind to yourself and others ♥

The Italians believe in la Famiglia meaning family ~ and Sundays are always reserved for  family, along with plenty of cousins, aunts, uncles all coming together for a day of  food, wine, and lively conversation ~looking at the table the only things missing are steaming platters of pasta, tortellini, Ossobocu with plenty of gravies, sauces to go along ~ the desserts will range from Tiramisu, Cannoli, Pannetone with various other cakes along with small bowls of gelato served with cups of espresso, bottles of limoncello and yes lot of different Italian wines ~ a feast fit for royalty but served to family…most of the heavier meals are served at lunch with dinner consisting of something lighter♥  After everyone has consumed their meals it is fairly typical to stroll around the grounds or walk into the town for an indulgent  digestive like Sgroppino, which is fresh lemon granita doctored up with champagne or vodka. Either way, large Italian families have their own special meals for Sundays some call their sauces gravy instead of sauce ~ my understanding is based on the region you grew up determines whether it is called gravy or sauce, for now, am going to grab a chair as my host yells out to everyone “MANGIA MANGIA meaning eat up ♥ a presto amici miei ~ see you soon my friends ♥♥♥

glamping we go…

Glamping
Cramming as much of comfort stuff that Dena and I thought we would need I gave her directions to one of the most gorgeous places I have seen the Smoky Mountains that borders on Tennessee and North Carolina ~ we were really lucky the National Forest was letting us spend a couple of nights as the temperature was mild and the snow forecast for the next couple days was absolutely nil ~ as you can see Dena and myself set up camper and if the weather gets bad we can always hop in our comfy travel trailer to get us comfy…Dena did most of the work setting up as I struggled with the tent ~ you can just see behind us the peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains ~ choosing a perfect spot just in front of the Tennessee streams where the fishing is amazing.  At least I hope so as that was the plan for dinner ~ back up is the pot of soup simmering on the campfire along with a kettle of hot water for tea or maybe hot cocoa later…lunch is the sandwiches that we grabbed just before entering the park ~ you can also set we set up some nibbles of wine and cheese when we get back from fishing…ummm Dena is yelling at me from the stream so gotta get going ~ Y’all take care and we will be back soon ♥

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

PumpkinsA.png
carved pumpkins

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 ~

PumpkinPa.png
enjoying the ride 

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…

AR1
The right half of room
AR2
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 ♥
