Rose Tea and Macarons

That cat is trying to use mind control to get at the macarons under glass. Good luck, buddy.

No, You Can’t Have My Pizza

I’m in the process of moving. Most of my inventory is boxed up and in shipping. If I thought it was a mess before….ugh, it will take me forever to get it all sorted. Meanwhile, I’m living out of my camper. I picked up a pizza and a bottle of wine on the way. No time to cook dinner this evening!

Daisy Falls

I love daisies and collect daisy themed items. This dress by Belle Epoch was a 2023 New Year’s Eve Hunt item. I put it aside until it was warm enough to wear. Paired with a few other daisy themed items, it makes a perfect outfit! I just had to go to Daisy Falls* to snap this selfie.

In the Garden With Buddha

The inspiration for this image came from two items I bought on sale over the last few days. The first was the No_Zen hair by No_Match, and the other was this beautiful kimono style dress by Fire Within, purchased during this week’s 25L Tuesday sale.

Every artist needs time to contemplate and dream up new ideas. I spent a couple of days sorting inventory (a dreadful job) and found a few recent acquisitions that sparked my imagination. The ideas flowed out of my head and into my surroundings.

Finally!

After much sweating and swearing, I finally got my ass in gear. Dobby is on his way home. I think he just wants his feed.

But I have to tell you, this is the most amazing makeup. Despite all of the work it took to get Dobby going, my makeup is in perfect shape! I heartily recommend the designers.

Lovely Lavender

Happy First Day of Spring! Spring makes me think of all of the lovely floral colors, especially lavender. I found this dress on sale this weekend at Just Because. As of this posting, the dresses are still available at the Saturday Sale price of 100L each. The single color options were all lovely pastel shades, but this one found its way into my shopping cart.

The earrings by Dark Mouse are also still available at the weekend sale price of 50L.

I Love My Plants

My houseplants are starting to look a little winter weary. After a brief morning shower, the sun is coming out and it is predicted to be a fine day. I’m taking my houseplants out onto the front porch to get a little sunshine.

My dress is an absolutely wonderful FREE gift for anyone in the FabFree group, which is also free to join. The HUD has colors and patterns for just about any mood. There are solid, gingham, polka dot and tropical options. Just wear your FabFree tag and head over to Petry Model Store. There are more group gifts and a ton of discounted items there, too!

Also note that the skin I’m wearing is the current group gift from Seven (7DS). Currently the group is 425L to join.

Camille

While digging around in my inventory, I came across the 2022 Lelutka EvoX Raven head. I also found the Eve skin by The Skinnery to go with it. Both were very generous gifts from Lelutka. I told you that I don’t unpack and organize in a timely fashion!

I tried out the various skin tones and liked the bronze tone the best. I also adjusted the shape that came with it. She reminds me of a very early version of Em (or as close as I could get to this look in 2008!) Meet Camille.
