Enjoy a cuppa…

Cuppa
Come sit with me and enjoy a cuppa tea or cocoa if that is your choice I do have both ~I know that for me getting caught up in traditions that I grew up with not even thinking there are so many worldwide traditions at Christmas as well that I took some time looking for some unique ones to tell you about ~ so sit relax and read on ~ Since 1966, a 13-metre-tall Yule Goat has been built in the center of Gävle’s Castle Square for the Advent, but this Swedish Christmas tradition has unwittingly led to another “tradition” of sorts – people trying to burn it down. Since 1966 the Goat has been successfully burned down 29 times – the most recent destruction was in 2016. ~ the next one sounds scary for children but in Austria on the eve of St. Nicholas Day, young men dress up as the Krampus frightening children with clattering chains and bells. Christmas has never been a big deal in Japan. Aside from a few small, secular traditions such as gift-giving and light displays, Christmas remains largely a novelty in the country. However, a new, quirky “tradition” has emerged in recent years – a Christmas Day feast of the Colonel’s very own Kentucky Fried Chicken. <–that one is interesting ♥  In the 13 days leading up to Christmas, 13 tricksy troll-like characters come out to play in Iceland. The Yule Lads (jólasveinarnir or jólasveinar in Icelandic) visit the children across the country over the 13 nights leading up to Christmas. For each night of Yuletide, children place their best shoes by the window and a different Yule Lad visits leaving gifts for nice girls and boys and rotting potatoes for the naughty ones. Lastly and perhaps one of the most unorthodox Christmas Eve traditions can be found in Norway, where people hide their brooms. It’s a tradition that dates back centuries to when people believed that witches and evil spirits came out on Christmas Eve looking for brooms to ride on. To this day, many people still hide their brooms in the safest place in the house to stop them from being stolen.  So now I hope you have learned some new traditions as I know there are a lot more and does anyone have a family tradition you would like to share ~ please leave a comment and will post it on my next blog ~ thank you again for reading and sharing your thoughts with me as till Christmas my blog will be only about the holidays without the normal rants I have at times hehehe ~ ENJOY & HUGZZZZ

Elsha Necklace by Avada

ooops got home and had to just spotlight this gorgeous Elsha necklace by Avada ~ with a hud that lets you change the colors of the pearls and the metal AND you can either layer or wear each one separate, which means you could really jazz this up and wear 2 of each and resize them ~ very creative of the Designer ~ this necklace Elsha is also at Designer Showcase ~ Rides below ♥

Did you miss me yesterday as I took a 1-day break from blogging to step out in the RL and head into the mountains to help my gf who is a realtor take some pics…the area was so gorgeous with the house sitting on the edge of a private lake community. Very remote so there is no just picking up your cell and ordering carryout ummm nope LOL ~ anyway the day was on the humid hot side that had me sweating but I was just glad gf was pleased with the final pics. oooh my while am standing here by these craggy rocks this bluebird landed on my outstretched hand ~ holding my breath that he doesn’t peck or poop on me hehehe ~ maybe he is just admiring my cute Babydoll outfit “Blush” by 1 Hundred that is at Designer Showcase *giggling* Oh and for those that are concerned with how short this Babydoll is the designer has included matching panties for you…Blush Babydoll comes in 6 different colors and fits my Maitreya perfectly~ a demo will be available if you are unsure ~ Rides to all will be below ~ before I leave wanted to truly say thank you to those that truly take the time to read my blog and to all the designers that have given me the opportunity to show off their gorgeous items ♥♥

fireflies…

Fireflies

Seeing fireflies brings back some great childhood memories ~ grabbing some type of glass jar and asking my Dad to punch some holes in the top *cuz I was a klutz with tools and parents knew it lol* then brothers and I would run around trying to capture them…now you barely never see them and made me wonder…using my trusty friend google I searched on why and sadly so many factors are the reasons behind the decline of fireflies ~some of the reasons are: light pollution, reduction of habitat, human traffic, and environmental pollution ♥  there are still some places that you can travel to like in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee they have tours to see these huge packs of fireflies that put on quite a show…while I enjoy the swarm of fireflies surrounding me let me tell you about what am wearing and from who ~ the top and skirt are both called “Luna” from KiB Designs ~ you have the choices of mixing/match as these are separates yet very affordable that you could pick up a couple of different colors…
