{ I’ll be waiting.. come and find me }

Hi there. Remember me?  Pardon me for being missing in action for the past few weeks but between birthdays and parental duties and getting in a knock down drag out fight with a flu virus I’ve had my hands full.  I’m still a bit under the weather but I’m on the upswing and a particular event in Second Life had me motivated to get out some pics and posts before it passed on by… I’m referrring to the latest round of Enchantment, of course!

castle-large_final

This month’s theme of “Cinderella” has me nostalgic for my childhood and remembering seeing it for the first time in the movie theater on the big screen.  A fairytale coming alive before my eyes.. and the story of a girl that against all odds had her dreams come true.  If anything Cinderella should give us all a little bit of hope for something better. And that it’s never too late for your happily ever after.

Check out Enchantment before the magic ends March 4th!  The clock is ticking!  (The date was extended to the 4th due to sim issues earlier in the event)

{ White with Snow }

The lake is frozen over
The trees are white with snow
And all around reminders of you
Are everywhere I go
It’s late and morning’s in no hurry
But sleep won’t set me free
I lie awake and try to recall
How your body felt beside me
When silence gets too hard to handle
And the night too long

{ Cozy Christmas }

 

Twas the night before Christmas….

… that all through the house

this blogger was too busy, there was no time to slouch.

 

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

but not on her platform, no she wouldn’t be found there.

 

For real life was calling; there was much still to do

and Second Life would have to wait…no blogging pictures yet – boo!!

 

But now that the gifts have been given, the presents are unwrapped

the foods all been eaten and that means I can finally RELAX

 

So off to my computer I flew like a flash

logged in and got snapping and prayed not to crash.

 

I sprang from my seat, and to myself gave a ‘wewt wewt’

The task was complete and the result was pretty cute!

 

Although it’s a day late, the sentiment is still valid alright..

HAPPY BELATED CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

The latest round of Enchantment was deliciously themed around the fairytale of “Hansel and Gretel”.  For me it was also reminiscent of playing Candyland as a child.  How can any kid (or adult for that matter) resist the fantasy of a world so sugary sweet, where lollipops bloom like flowers, candied apples grow from trees and donuts glazed in chocolate adorn the land?  Sadly my blogpost didn’t make it up here in time before Enchantment closed it’s doors for this round, however you’ll find all the items listed below with their corresponding stores should you find yourself hungry for a little shopping treat!
