Contemplating a Move!

I am seriously thinking of moving my blog over to WordPress.

I have so many formatting issues with Blogger, and I think that the text may be hard to read?

Please excuse the horrid colors 1) in an attempt to make the text easier to read and 2) until I figure out just how to move to WordPress or figure out Blogger.

Thanks!

The William Weaver Treatment

Do you follow William Weaver on Flickr?

His composition, his appreciation for the female body and condition, his artistry... all lend to the argument that you SHOULD be following him. If you're not already, do so!

We got together, and I'm so glad. All I did was stand there, and he created the magic once again.

I told him a particular story, one of waiting. And this is what he created:


"there is a place in the heart that will never be filled... and... we will wait.. and... wait... in that space."
What a collaboration, right?
Here are some other examples of his art:


"the tigers have found me"


"the start a simple touch"


"everywhere and everywhen"


"secret buildings of the mind"

This is all only a small fraction of what you can find on his Flickr stream, so get there!

All I Wanted Was the Moon...

Speaking of MOON, let's look at some cool Moon hairs!


From left to right, you see Frigid, Keeke and Chill. You can find Keeke at The Kawaii Project and Frigid and Chill at The Seasons Story for Winter 2015. All accessories (scarves and hat) are color-changeable via HUD. And big-boobs and even-bigger-boobs versions are included!

As an aside, for some reason, I can't spell Frigid. It's been... Fridid, Fridig, Fridge, maybe even Frigidaire.

MUSIC BOX: [ContraptioN] [Mingle exclusive gift]

DESK with CHAIR: LAQ Decor

WOODEN TOWN: Hideki [FLF item; still 50L at time of posting!]

My music box plays an original berceuse by Eckenfeld (Eldred Resident inworld) but "Var" came to mind while decorating and "shooting" this scene.


Var, to me, sounds like... tipping around in the dark, careful not to anger "it," whatever your "it" may be, careful not to offend while you plead to co-exist with this "it."

My Spotify playlist was moving along, and it stuck on Var because I wouldn't let it move along to the next "song," Ekki múkk. It stuck because it fit, because it's shadowy and careful, like this particular scene. Anywho, take a listen to Var and other Sigur Rós "songs." I hate to call them songs; they are much more than "songs." We call what Iggy Azalea makes "songs." It doesn't seem right to use the same or even like terms for the two.

Did you know that theSkinnery has made appliers for the major mesh bodies? That's TMP, Physique and, recently, Venus (Belleza) and Lara (Maitreya). 

Speaking of Lara, since it's pretty new, there aren't many nail appliers. But Izzie's has already made some, and you can get them for 60L at TDR Fusion for another three or so days. Both manicure and pedicure appliers are included for this tribal design and pastel solids.
