{ Elfed }

elfed-treetrimming_final

I’ve been a busy little elf working on getting our home and sim changed over for Winter/Christmas which is pretty amazing considering how most seasons I’m 1000% behind on. Gonna make Santa proud this year (even if I am still on the naughty list). But I’m enjoying it so much.. finally having a “home” in SL and not just a place to take pretty pictures. I was given a stern talking to about not accurately depicting how this all went down, and it’s true.  I had help from my love, Mr. Roxan and my lovely, sweetness, Cecilia, in getting all the beautiful ornaments up on the tree.  Unfortunately we were too busy chatting for me to capture that in a photo. Plus there was a blinging Freenis on the top of the tree then.  I spared you all from the horror of that. 😛 You’re welcome.

{ Will I always feel this way.. }

She lifts her skirt up to her knees
Walks through the garden rows
With her bare feet laughing
I never learned to count my blessings
I choose instead to dwell
In my disasters
I walk on down the hill
Through grass grown tall
And brown and still
It’s hard somehow
To let go of my pain
On past the busted back
Of that old and rusted Cadillac
That sinks into this field
Collecting rain
Will I always feel this way
So empty
And estranged?

seasons-full_finalseasons-close_final

and of these cut throat busted sunsets
These cold and damp white mornings
I have grown weary
If through my cracked and dusty
Dime store lips
I spoke these words out loud
Would no one hear me?
Lay your blouse across the chair
Let fall the flowers
From your hair
And kiss me
With that country mouth
So plain
outside the rain is tapping
On the leaves
To me it sounds like
They’re applauding us
The quiet love
We’ve made
Will it always feel this way
So empty
So estranged?

{ Fine Ass Mess }

Let me tell yo something bout you girl
You can’t be sexy with an attitude
You wanna know why? Do you wanna know why?
Hear me out, shut up and listen for a minute
It’s time to clean all these closets out, starting with you
Sweet as a rose, but yet still covered in thorns
It’s hurting your image
Everyday you chose to live for the moment
It sure got you dirty
Girl, you a fine-ass mess
I hate that it’s true
Baby, it’s time to get the mud off your dress
Way too much been swept up under your rug

{ but first… COFFEE }

sadnovember-warmers_final

I may not love mornings, but I do love coffee.  And without it, I wouldn’t make it thru the day.  It’s not just about caffeine (although that doesn’t hurt) but there’s something very comforting about sitting there as the day begins with a warm cup in my hand.  Sipping the steamy goodness brings me back to life.  Ain’t never gonna give you up, you tall dark delicious mug of mocha ❤

Sad November is back again and designers are showering us with all kinds of fall-to-winter moody creations.  oOo Studio has made a set of cozy singles poses called “Warmer” along with a texture changing coffee mug prop for you to brave the brisk mornings this month.  Available at the event until November 26th!
