{ It can’t rain forever, we’re onto better weather }

Storms cause our flowers to bloom
Clouds like the smoke in the room
My mind is not where it should be
Grey skies made a mess out of me
This pain, these problems
You know they’re not forever
My love, my sweetheart
We’re on to better weather
It can’t rain forever
Some days it will pour
Love is the best umbrella
It can’t rain forever
No-o-o-o
It can’t rain forever
No-o-o-o
It can’t rain forever

Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down

If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down

If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone

“But hearts don’t have locks, she said.
Some do, he replied. There are people who give away the key to theirs for safekeeping. Others are mistrustful and give out several keys just in case. Then there are those who have misplaced them but never cared to look.
What about your heart, she asked.
He smiled.
Your words are the key to mine, he replied.
Never forget your words.”

{ R U Mine? } Shiny Shabby NEWNESS!

I guess what I’m trying to say is I need the deep end
Keep imagining meeting, wished away entire lifetimes
Unfair we’re not somewhere misbehaving for days
Great escape lost track of time and space
She’s a silver lining climbing on my desire

And I go crazy ’cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can’t help myself
All I wanna hear her say is are you mine?

Are you mine?
Are you mine?
Are you mine?UrbanGrey_FINAL

And the thrill of the chase moves in mysterious ways
So in case I’m mistaken
I just wanna hear you say you got me baby
Are you mine?

She’s a silver lining lone ranger riding through an open space
In my mind when she’s not right there beside me
And I go crazy cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory

And I can’t help myself
All I wanna hear her say is are you mine?
Well are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
Are you mine? (or just mine tonight?)
Are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
(Or just mine tonight?)

UrbanGrey-close_FINAL

Shiny Shabby just opened for it’s October round this past week with a modern approach to fall with focus on the color grey and neutrals rather than the typical warm tones we associate with the season.  Designers have captured this typically cool tone in their creations and invoked into it a sense of comfort and coziness.  Definitely go check it out… so many great offerings, this is just a peek at a few things out there.  The event runs until November 15th.

 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!
