The Shabby Chic Wedding

My sponsors make some pretty amazing stuff. So when I saw the newest releases from Ionic and Spell, I knew exactly what I had to do: a wedding venue! This was a lot of effort, but we’ll call it a labor of love. It all takes places in this beautiful barn, that really could be used for so many things. There are so many beautiful pieces and even more could be used!

I’ll be honest. You won’t catch me spending time in a garden. I’m terrified of bees, wasps, or any other related spawn of Satan. However, that’s the glory of SL. You get the pretty garden without those little shitbags ruining your beautiful experience.

Ahhh, Spring is finally here (at least in the States). FUCK YOU WINTER! I think my sponsors have been itching for winter to be over too, as they’re releasing beautiful Spring inspired items. Dahlia is releasing an adorable set available at Illluminate which starts March 18th, and Granola is at the same event with THE TABLE OF MY RL DREAMS. I’d love to have a house that looks similar to this, but I also have a toddler who loves to destroy things. Someday…someday…

Everyone is Fighting Their Own Battles – Be Kind

Snapshot_005 copy copy

One of the things I love most about our Virtual World is that we come across so many different people from different walks of life. I find that SL often breaks the generalisations and prejudices that we might have had about people. I know over the 9 years I have been part of Second Life that my perceptions have changed…I hope I am far more open-minded and tolerant than I was and I always considered myself to be a very tolerant person in the first place.

I have lots of examples of this having worked and played in various communities over the years and one of the biggest changes I have seen has happened under my own nose.  6 years ago almost I hired a female avatar DJ to work at my club. She insisted on using a voice morpher which did cause a lot of snickers and giggles from people. Of course people made assumptions…quite rightly as it proved, that this DJ was not in fact a female in real life. A couple of years in this DJ was unaware one night that their voice morpher failed, just for a split second, and several us were able to confirm that it was a male voice. No one said a word. To us, she wanted to be known and associated as a female and we were fine with that. It was her SL and she could be whatever she wanted to be.

For one reason or another the DJ left my employ but came back a few years later and asked to rejoin the team. I said yes, but not with a voice morpher. The voice morpher is unclear and distracting, I said, and besides we all know you have a male voice. By this time I also had several other dj’s whose avies didn’t match the voice and it really was no big deal to anyone. The DJ was surprised we knew, shocked we had known for so long and I think mostly pleasantly surprised that she hadn’t noticed any change whatsoever in how people related to her.

Everyone has things going on behind the avatar that others may not know about. Some might, but most won’t unless you are a person that shares everything with everyone like a daily edition of a newspaper. I’ve been reminded of this today as I read Facebook and find out that someone I know has been dealing with the decline and now passing away of a parent to cancer. This person knows full well that they get a fair amount of criticism from some quarters for how they interact with others sometimes. My writing that won’t be a surprise. But, reading that this morning really made me remember the adage ‘Be Kind to Others, You never know what battles they are fighting’

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone and treat people how you would like to be treated today.

Hooray for Peter Pumpkinhead

I want to sing ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’ but people would think I meant Christmas. Of course, I don’t. I mean Autumn, Fall…Halloween. What is not to like  about this time of year. Fresh air, with a chill, but not a freeze. Roaring fires, crisp leaves on the ground. The colours..oh my the colours, oranges, browns, greens, yellows, golds and saffron.

The new round of Tres Chic opens tomorrow 17th September and there are going to be some fabulous items for sale if the previews are anything to go buy. The set above is unKindness set for the event and is absolutely adorable. The Country Pumpkin set comprises three individual pieces that can also be purchased as a set and are also copyable to decorate your Fall themed areas and homes. The seat comes with 6 male and 6 female poses and is complimented perfectly by the Accessories Set and Candles Tray.
