elfed-treetrimming_final

I’ve been a busy little elf working on getting our home and sim changed over for Winter/Christmas which is pretty amazing considering how most seasons I’m 1000% behind on. Gonna make Santa proud this year (even if I am still on the naughty list). But I’m enjoying it so much.. finally having a “home” in SL and not just a place to take pretty pictures. I was given a stern talking to about not accurately depicting how this all went down, and it’s true.  I had help from my love, Mr. Roxan and my lovely, sweetness, Cecilia, in getting all the beautiful ornaments up on the tree.  Unfortunately we were too busy chatting for me to capture that in a photo. Plus there was a blinging Freenis on the top of the tree then.  I spared you all from the horror of that. 😛 You’re welcome.

{ dreaming } Gacha Garden Opens SOON!

“You know that place between sleep and awake;
that place where you can still remember dreaming?
That’s where I will always love you.
That’s where I will be waiting.”
~ Peter Pan ~FloraFauna_FINAL

The Gacha Garden is about to open its gates once again and welcome you in with an abundance of creativity and unique designs from many of your favorite creators around the grid!  I’m giving you a sneak peek at a few of my favorite items this round with a fantasy flair. If you weren’t able to check it out the last round, one thing that makes this event unique is that for those that love to play the gacha machines, you will be rewarded anytime you play 20 times on the same machine with a special exclusive prize called the “Seed of Inspiration” !  All machines are marked with the exclusive SOI (“Seed of Inspiration”) item as well as the commons and rares that you can win and collect.  As with other gachas, all items are NO COPY/TRANS so you can give away extras, trade them, or sell through various gacha groups and yardsales.

The Gacha Garden will open November 1st and run for the entire month, plenty of time for you to get on over and stock up on all the goodies that are available!  A great time to get an early start on Christmas shopping too!  See you there!

{ Waiting Game }

I’m thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it’s causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don’t wanna cause any pain
And if I’m feeling like I’m even, we’ve got nothing to gain

What if I never even see you ’cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

Waiting-DUO-1_FINAL

Baby I’m thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start
What if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
‘Cause lately I’ve been scared of even thinking ’bout where we are

What if I never even see you ’cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

What if I never even see you ’cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

{ Come to my window }

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window
I’ll be home soon

I would dial the numbers
Just to listen to your breath
I would stand inside my hell
And hold the hand of death
You don’t know how far I’d go
To ease this precious ache
You don’t know how much I’d give
Or how much I can take
Just to reach you
Just to reach you
Oh to reach you

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window, I’ll be home soon

Keeping my eyes open
I cannot afford to sleep
Giving away promises
I know that I can’t keep
Nothing fills the blackness
That has seeped into my chest
I need you in my blood
I am forsaking all the rest
Just to reach you
Just to reach you
Oh to reach you, oh

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window, I’ll be home soon

“I cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food.”

~ W.C. Fields

For those food & wine lovers who gather ’round their kitchens to laugh and enjoy one of life’s pleasures of the senses… I created a cozy yet rustic, old world style kitchen scene with a little help from the items at the current round of Shiny Shabby as well as Trompe Loeil and 8f8 creations.  Always amazed at what designers around the grid can come up with and share with us!

{ Oh you fill my lungs with sweetness } Sneak Peek for FLF!

In the morning when I wake
And the sun is coming through
Oh you fill my lungs with sweetness
And you fill my head with you

Shall I write it in a letter?
Shall I try to get it down?
Oh you fill my head with pieces
Of a song I can’t get out

Can I be close to you

Can I take you to a moment
Where the fields are painted gold
And the trees are filled with memories
Of the feelings never told

When the evening pulls the sun down
And the day is almost through
Oh the whole world it is sleeping
But my world is you
