Puppies’ Paranormal Pizza Party!

One Autumnal night, Seamus the shiba inu found himself the unwilling pup sitter of his three younger siblings, Shawn, Shannon and Shelia. You see, the pups had discovered their house was haunted! Their human begged them to come spend the night with her outside in the tent, but the pups had other ideas! A paranormal pizza party with their new friends! So, Seamus was left in charge of the others. Sheila ordered the pizzas. Shannon tried to dress up as a ghost herself, but it didn’t quite work out as planned. Shawn poked his head out the window to try to get one of the other ghosts to join them inside… and after consuming a hearty helping of candy corn, Seamus fell asleep with a good book on the spooky rug in front of the pumpkin fireplace. He hadn’t the heart to tell Shawn, Shannon and Sheila that ghosts don’t eat, but he trusted his siblings were up to the task of devouring the pizzas on their own!

It was a fantastical night, except maybe for the shibas’ poor human, who was more than a tiny bit frightened of all the paranormal partying. But even she managed a good night’s sleep, tucked inside her cozy, starry tent.

It was an autumn night not soon to be forgotten!

The end.

Puppies' Paranormal Pizza Party

Cheeky Pea released this incredible Halloween Kitsch set for Uber’s new round, which was a Designer’s Choice edition. It’s absolutely adorable, and I’m not using all of it here, either. Definitely check it out for your Halloween decorating needs.

The pups are half Theosophy and the other two are Half-Deer. Both are available at the current round of The Arcade, which is coming to close soon!

This beautiful, one room cottage is a new release from DaD Designs for The Fantasy Collective. There are two versions of The Bayou Cottage, and one includes a deck. Sadly, I live in the sky so I am using the version without. However, what I really love about this house is how versatile it feels. While I can absolutely imagine it in a bayou, it works well in my mountain country inspired sky, too. The beautiful, pumpkin filled fireplace is a Collabor88 release from Pilot, and I absolutely had to have it.

Out the window, you can see me, sleeping in one of Sway’s adorable tents from The Arcade. This is one of the rares, but they’re all beautifully done and definitely must haves! I am wearing new releases from Neve by coldLogic. I will be blogging this outfit in full detail later this week, but the top is breeze, in the lively option and the leggings are zeezee, also in the lively version. Stay tuned to see a full, closer snap of this in a few days!

The Arcade’s final hours…

The end of another round of the wonderfully addictive Arcade is upon us! Be sure to stop over and play the machines because sometimes these items are never sold again, and other times it can be a while before they are added to mainstore gacha collections! You’ll find a handy shopping guide here, if you need it!

I am featuring items from Pixel Mode and Theosophy’s Arcade offerings. Both have cute food related sets. Theosophy’s Whoa, Sweet Food Truck, Dude set is full of goodies, and Pixel Mode’s Le Petit Chef is perfect for all your summer BBQ needs. First up, Pixel Mode! All items in the below pic, except for the napkin dispenser and the utensil holder, are from Pixel Mode. The napkin dispenser and utensils are from Theosophy’s set.

Cookout

I set up the Theosophy food truck and got to work behind the counter. Hey, an av needs a summer job to pay for shopping, right? My cute top is from Maitreya for Collabor88, and my skin is another item from The Arcade. This is Glam Affair’s Livy.

Finally summer…

There are so many events happening right now… some of our regular faves, like Collabor88. And then there’s Fashion For Life, which is a massive, amazing event that raises money for the American Cancer Society. I’ve written before about why fundraisers like FFL and RFL are meaningful for me, so I won’t go into that again. But suffice it to say, I think the good these events do is amazing and impressive. And I love the theme of Wanderlust for this year. You can read more about the event here, and there is a complete list of slurls on this page, too. There are a lot of sims for this event, which means lots of opportunities to shop and help raise money for a great cause!

I’m wearing the new Summer II from Glam Affair, which can be found at the new round of Collabor88. I fell hard for Glam Affair’s Summer last year, so I was happy to see another take on this beautiful skin. My adorable sun dress is from SySy’s for Fashion For Life, as is the playful suitcase pose/prop by NanTra. These strappy sandals are SLink add ons from fri.day, also at Collabor88. My bracelet by Theosophy, the chairs on my deck, and the bookcase you can see a glimpse of inside are also all items from Collab. The chairs are by Trompe Loeil, the bookcase is from Schadenfreude.

Finally here

Here’s a close up, to show you both the gorgeous Glam Affair skin and also the Cae jewels for Serafilms Gone With The Wind round, which opens today (June 12th)! I’m also debuting my new shape here. I’ve been tweaking my face for a few days, and I like the end result. I’m sure most people won’t see a huge difference, but to me it’s a fairly dramatic change, lol.

Summer haze

More soon… I’m getting back into the swing of things after traveling and dealing with a flare up.

The Childless Mother

I am the childless mother.
Dreams shattered, the pieces
lurk in dark corners
linger in shadows

I am the childless mother.
But not the only one
who weeps silent tears
from a seemingly endless well

I am the childless mother.
My day is not today,
when those who give life
are celebrated

I am the childless mother.
But never alone,
the sorrow cannot overtake
gifts given by those who love me

~Lucie Bluebird

Childless Mother

Dedicated to everyone who was there for me today… and to all who know my sorrow. But most of all, dedicated to the husband who loves me through every day, no matter what.
