{ It can’t rain forever, we’re onto better weather }

Storms cause our flowers to bloom
Clouds like the smoke in the room
My mind is not where it should be
Grey skies made a mess out of me
This pain, these problems
You know they’re not forever
My love, my sweetheart
We’re on to better weather
It can’t rain forever
Some days it will pour
Love is the best umbrella
It can’t rain forever
No-o-o-o
It can’t rain forever
No-o-o-o
It can’t rain forever

Eat, drink and be scary!  The company and accomodations are to die for!  

This is our busy season so please remember to book a head.

{ 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!

 WhiteRoom-close_FINAL

[Zerkalo] has been going full on with white styling of decor and furnishings lately with its releases across the grid at varioius events right now and it’s perfect as a nice clean palette to start from and fill in with various neutrals in darker tones for contrast.

Britain Knave-Kennedy of Kennedy Interiors, who is a huge inspiration to me in the home decor realm of SL and Flickr, has really helped me think out of the box when mix and matching certain items and modifying things to change up their uses.  She is also quite known for her love of ‘white’ decor and has done absolutely breathtaking interiors with it.

If something is modifiable, use that to your advantage when decorating!  It takes some getting used to to start to see all the possibilities, but once you do, you’ll be amazed at what you can come up with!

{ Diners, Drive-ins and Divas! }

If you’re American and have any interest in the Food Network, this title may make you snicker a bit.. if so, good, my work here is done! 😛  If you’re not American and still get the play on words … even better!  It all started with a sassy glam outfit from Shiny Shabby (thank you so much Dead Dollz!) and then the gift of this gorgeous vintage white (and driveable!) convertible by Consignment that you can get right now at the Arcade.  I wanted to play up the diva look so gave myself a couple canine companions fitting for a rich girl… the flottante puppies from {anc} were the perfect addition.  And since I can never get enough of {anc}’s elegant and whimsical creations, I snuck some of their champagne Arcade offerings to turn this into an upper class tailgate!  Vanity Hair’s “Not My Business” feels very retro and full of attitude so now we come full circle with the classic car and BAM!… “Diners, Drive-ins and Divas” is born.

Welcome to my strange and wonderful mind… hope you enjoyed it!  Now drink up.. and get shopping!
