Patriarch

Patriarch2

Another week, another color for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge. This week’s color is named ‘patriarch,’ which is a new one for me. I know the word; just, have never heard it applied to a color. I suppose the name derives from the royal purple, the purple of kings and popes and emperors. The color is so rich and deep with its combination of heat and chill, that only a gown would do.

Down by the water

DownByTheWater3

It was dusk…or maybe it was dawn…I don’t really remember. Took a walk down by the water, just to think, and breathe. So beautiful there, with the soft light drifting through the trees. I could almost smell the grass and hear the gentle lap of water from our little lake on a breezy day in the summertime.  For a moment, it felt like recaptured perfection.

Celadon / 52 Weeks of Color Challenge

Celadon

The word ‘celadon’ — this week’s color for the challenge — makes me think of summer afternoons, escaping the heat by going to the museum, looking at collections of ancient Asian ceramics. So cool, that pale shade of green, light and yet filled with mystery; clear, yet hiding ancient secrets.

A home by the sea

BeachHouse Wide

Once while perusing the real estate section of the New York Times Online — my version of porn — I came across a listing for a tiny cottage right at the edge of the ocean. It was much cheaper than the other beach ‘cottages’ in the section. Putting aside the fact that I wouldn’t have even been able to afford the down payment, I fantasized about buying it and moving in, living there with just the bare essentials, spending my days in solitude, writing and watching the sea. This What Next cottage reminds me of that dream.

Exploring Liberty Cove

LibertyCove

It’s raining where I am, and though the flowers are happy I found myself in need of sunshine. A trip to Liberty Cove reminded me of things I love about SL: the beauty, the colors, the creativity.  Sextan Shepherd’s sim is truly a marvel with much to explore.

Sweet Sunday

Astrid

Happy Sunday to all, and Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there. You raised us, you supported us, and you nurtured us. You didn’t shy away from teaching us the harder lessons, and never hesitated to kiss it all better when we fell down. Thank you.

I’m still opening folders of all the lovely things I got at the CH1C Birthday event, and this LeeZu gown is amazing. I feared it might be more ‘haute couture’ than I could carry off, but it turned out to be the perfect dress for a fabulous night out. Bring on the champagne and caviar!

Anyone who reads this blog knows that I love fashion; what you might not know is that I also count architecture and interior design among my passions. I was recently tasked with decorating a bedroom, and making it very ‘Oceany’. While it’s still very much a work in progress, I thought I’d show off what I’ve done so far. And unlike RL where I’d be wearing my grimiest cut-offs and t-shirt to move heavy pieces of furniture from one spot to another, here I get to do it in this lovely Peqe sundress!
