{ Artist of a floating world }

“She paints her face to hide a face
Her eyes are deep water.
It is not for geisha to want, it is not for geisha to feel.
Geisha is an artist of a floating world.
She dances, she sings, she entertains you, whatever you want.
The rest is shadows, the rest is secrets.”
~ Memoirs of a Geisha

{ 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

{ Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter.. } Enchantment opens tomorrow!

Wetter_FINAL

“The Little Mermaid” is the theme for the return of Enchantment!  If you haven’t heard of Enchantment, it’s an event in SL where designers and creators take inspiration from fairy tales.  This round is a particularly fun one for me, as “The Little Mermaid” is one of my long time loves.  How can you not be enchanted by tales of underwater castles, mermaid princesses and of course, evil sea witches??  Time to flip your fins like you just don’t care.
Wetter-closeup_FINALFor all things under the sea… check it out starting tomorrow, August 14th!  The event will continue thru September 4th.

{ Indulgence }

I want…
your legs
draped over my shoulders,
your voice
breath-filled and coy;
your hands
pulling me in closer,
your body
writhing with joy;

my face
buried deep between
your thighs,
holding me in place;
my nose
filled with your sweet scent,
my tongue
dancing with your taste

{ Love’s floating away } Gacha Garden is OPEN!

Say you love me to my face
I need it more than your embrace
Just say you want me, that’s all it takes
Heart’s getting torn from your mistakes

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you’re mine
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away

Just say you love me, just for today
And don’t give me time ’cause that’s not the same
Want to feel burning flames when you say my name
Want to feel passion flow into my bones
Like blood through my veins

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you’re mine
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away
Won’t you stay?!

Won’t you stay?!

Blooms_FINAL

Love’s floating away and so was my time this weekend… so I’m a few days behind on letting you all know some important news: The Gacha Garden is now OPEN! This is a new gacha event that rewards you if you’re one of those that plays the machine again and again trying to get that THING, that thing you NEED. After 20 plays you’ll get an exclusive item (aka “The Seed of Inspiration“) gifted to you just as a nifty “thank you” from that creator/designer.  Pretty nice, I’d say.. so get on over and play, have fun, and good luck gacha-ing!
