{ 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

{ Autumn leaves… just like you did }

Another tear
Another cry
Another place for us to die
It’s not complicated

Another love that’s gone to waste
Another light lost from your face
It’s complicated

Is it that it’s over or do birds still sing for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you’re miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

SweaterWeather_FINAL

Ooh how I miss you
My symphony played the song that carried you out
Ooh how I miss you
And I, I miss you and I wish you’d stay

Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you’re miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

Bests_FINAL

As a Second Life user for nearly 7 years, I’ve seen my share of friends come and go.  Sometimes only temporarily, sometimes and very unfortunately all too permanently.  But one thing is true, if you invest in someone.. a friendship that starts in a virtual world, is and can be more real than anything.  We grow attached to people here just like anywhere else.  I’ve heard people say many times, how the people they’ve met through SL have become closer to them than even their ‘real life’ friends.  And it isn’t surprising that some people who might find it otherwise difficult to make friends due to social anxieties in the real world, feel more comfortable making friends in Second Life and opening up more about themselves.  SL is far more than a game.  I can’t even really call it that.  It’s a social venue of unbounded virtual proportions.  How many places can you meet and connect with someone from the other side of the world and hang out with them on a daily basis?  SL has brought countless people together.  And it warms my heart when I hear stories about those who have actually had the privilege of stepping outside of SL and meeting face to face in the real world as well.  To those that have, I envy you!  Those are special memories and proof of just how real these bonds really are.

So enough of the mushy stuff… the NEW Friends Pose “Bests” above will be coming soon (March 25th) from oOo Studio to the Color Me: Pink Event! The lovely little Daybed Decor set is from {What Next} and is available right now at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative: ‘Bon Voyage’.  The set is also available in 2 other color schemes as well if pink is not your thing. 😉  Check the credits below for the rest of the details…  And happy shopping everyone!
