LOTD #179 – Books!

LOTD 179

She danced gleefully among the pages.

“How can you not like books?” she wondered.

All those worlds, right at your fingertips.

For the last several months, I have been participating in a theme challenge at Scribbler’s Cove.

I make some weeks, I miss some.

I like challenges like this because they generally force me to learn or try something new.

Next week’s theme is ‘Books.’

I’m a read-a-holic in RL, and I have a huge collection of books.

(Not as huge as I’d like, but short of owning the Library of Congress, nothing would do.)

Apparently I also collect books in SL.

I looked through my inventory for ‘books,’ with an idea for a shoot in my head.

Umm, there’s a LOT of them in there.

More for decor than actual reading, of course, but still – a LOT of books. 😀

Floating books, big books, little books, open books, closed books, torn books, old books, new books – you name it, I’ve probably got it.

That makes me happy. 😛

After rezzing my plethora of books, I put together this look.

My usually organized inventory has become a hot mess lately, so I’m trying to go through and pull things I’ve bought but never worn.

Mixed in with some new purchases, of course.

This adorable braided hair from Truth isn’t new, but is one of my favorite looks.

The earrings and cuffs I’ve had for quite a while, but they are definitely keepers.

The necklace is a recent purchase from Maxi Gossamer for July’s round at Mix.

There was so much stuff in that box, I’m still unpacking it!

The shoes from G&D (one of my favorite shoemakers) are from the last round of 21Shoe.  *sniffs*

I can’t believe that 21Shoe closed.

One of my favorite events, darn it.

The dress from Sage is fitted mesh.

I stopped by Designer Showcase to look at another item, and ended up buying this cute little number instead.

Yay for impulse shopping!

Treat yourself – buy a book and read it, and enjoy your Monday. 😀

LOTD #164 – Pretty in Pink

LOTD 164

She moved the brush slowly and deliberately across the canvas.

She sighed with contentment, sitting by her favorite pond, the soft breeze stirring her hair slightly.

The weather was beautiful.

LOTD 164 2

She stood up to stretch, turning around as she heard footsteps behind her.

I’ve been horribly busy shopping the last few days.  😀

Yesterday was 50L Friday, and I found a few gems, including this amazing dress from Valentina E.

I knew it would go perfectly with the hair from The Secret Store for Mix.

If you haven’t heard about Mix, it’s a new event in SL.

It runs through July – join the in-world group to get the HUD (or get it free on MP) and tp to the participating stores.

I LOVE not having to fight the lag of a crowded event – I’d much rather tp to less crowded stores and shop at my leisure.

Plus, if I like a designer, I can look around and see if there are other items I’d like to pick up. 😀

I picked up the jewelry from Maxi Gossamer (@Mix) and again – a perfect match, since it’s color change.

The shoes were a find from a ‘new to me’ store, G&D, that I discovered during a 21Shoe shopping trip.

I love the soft pink hue and the strappy look of these beauties!

I decided to take a trip back to Slink West to take the photos, and I’m so glad I did.

The pond and the painting vignette – so adorable!

LOTD #140 – Lonely Reality

LOTD 140Mom hadn’t known she’d taken this picture.

It was a few days after the divorce; Mom was going out with her girlfriends – their attempt to ‘keep her busy.’

But Kelsey knew.

She could see it in moments like this – how alone Mom felt.

G&D is a ‘new to me’ shoe creator.

I picked up a pair of their shoes for 21 Shoe, and found these in the store.

I ❤ them!
