{ Welcome to the Dead & Breakfast }

GothicInn_FINAL

Dark and morbid yet elegantly gothic..

..the Dead & Breakfast Inn invites you to come stay for fright or two.  

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.  

Warning!! Abundance of pictures ahead! I had a bit too much fun getting into the Halloween spirit this past weekend and put together a creepy version of a vintage Bed & Breakfast with all the wonderfully spooky creations that were out in Second Life this past month.  HauntedInn-Entry_FINAL

{ Fade into You }

I wanna hold the hand inside you
I wanna take the breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth

You live your life, you go in shadow
You’ll come upon and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Close your eyes with what’s not there

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew

The strange light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart is out of home
You put your hands into your head
And your smiles cover your heart

 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!

{ 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!
