Twisted Color Challenge: Lyndhurst Plum

This week’s color is a combination of blue and purple:

It, along with last weeks combination, have been making me look wistfully out the window at the cold and grey and wish for warmer and more colorful times.

    Such a gorgeous photo Eliza, I never took up the split colour challenge like I know a few of my fellow colour bloggerettes did but seeing this makes me think that I should have?!

A Really Big Fireplace

There are two dreams I have always had…the first is to have a really, really big bathtub, and the other is to have a great big fireplace that you can cook stuff in. I haven’t realized either dream yet in RL, and as far as fireplaces go, it’s probably never gonna happen. So imagine my happiness to find this great little mesh cottage from Post as part of the Cold Winter Nights hunt. And it has a fireplace to please my pyromaniac heart!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Aqua Island

In all honesty, when I saw this week’s color I said to myself, “Aqua, again?” It seems like we have done every variation possible of the aqua/turquoise/cyan/cerulean family. Luna is really forcing me to get creative here, how DARE she??? Well, at least it is one of my favorite color groupings so I am always happy to go in search of more. This week I had fun roaming around the Forgotten City.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Moss Green

This is one of my favorite colors in the world. So when I typed in “moss” in my inventory I was shocked to find only a couple of items. What I did have was some lovely mossy rocks. Now there’s nothing like a hike over the craggy peaks!

At a girl’s youth camp this summer I was teaching the kids about orienteering and doing compass courses, etc. The girls could not believe that I could figure out where we needed to go by looking at the sun, at my little spinning dial and at moss on trees. Where I live moss grows primarily on the north side of trees and rocks, since it gets the most shade. They were astounded—but completely excited when they figured out how to do it, too. Fun times.

    hehe … I often tried that mossy tree trick … but usually the trees I found had moss all around … I’ll never make a good pathfinder ;-P

  3. samayalin

    Also, love the outfit. And I’m sooo going to buy that hair!

Release-O-Rama

This week was a whirlwind of great new releases! Even though we are nowhere near October 31st, this Dia de los Muertos top from Acid & Mala was the perfect shirt to pull on for a relaxed Sunday. And it pairs so well with these great Fifty Linden Friday jeans from Whippet & Buck.

Also making big waves all over the grid are the new Flip-flops from Onyx Leshelle at Maitreya. Flip flops that really work in SL are hard to find, and these are of the same excellent quality of Onyx’s previous designs. I had a moment of sticker shock, but then most of us probably know that you get what you pay for in SL, and there is simply no downside to these. I might not wear anything else all summer.

Also out from Beauty Code are these gorgeous earrings in silver and gold. The sparkle on these earrings is subtle and natural and won’t distract the person you are talking to with flashing bling!!! And finally, it’s always a great day when Ikon Innovia has a new release, and he continues to delight with his dreamy new Carribean Blue.
