{ Kept } Sneak peek at Enchantment!

The upcoming round of Enchantment is themed on “Neverland” thanks to the latest in a plethora of Peter Pan movies, “Pan”, that is out in theaters now.  And this is definitely one that blends well into the roleplay and art culture of Second Life, with fairies and pirates and mermaids and flying boys… How can you not be inspired??

Tinkerbell, Peter Pan’s pixie dust sprinkling sidekick, has always been particularly near and dear to my heart as she was my first favorite “character” as a child.  I used to spend hours drawing pictures of Tink and imagined being her and wrote stories about her.  It wasn’t until later in my life that I actually discovered a bit more about her from a Disney fanatic friend, that Tink was in fact…. a VILLAIN.  Yes, that’s right.  Cute, adorable, sweet Tink .. is actually considered one of the bad guys. Why? Because she’s apparently quite a sassy little thing and though small, she can put up quite a fight, and also happens to be quite jealous to the point of actually trying to have Wendy killed.  My love of Tink only grew after that.  So to do her honor I made this my first pic in a series of Neverland-ish photos to come…

 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!

{ She used to be mine }

It’s not simple to say,
Most days I don’t recognize me.
These shoes and this apron,
This place and it’s patrons
Have taken more than I gave them.
It’s not easy to know
I’m not anything that I used to be.
Although it’s true,
I was never attention sweet center
I still remember that girl.

She’s imperfect but she tries
She is good but she lies.
She is hard on herself.
She is broken but won’t ask for help.
She is messy but she’s kind.
She is lonely most of the time.
She is all of this mixed up
And baked in a beautiful pie.
She is gone but she used to be mine.

{ 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
