Night-time

I love a night-time fire. Toasting marshmallows, telling stories, or just dreaming. One favorite family tradition of mine is when my dad tells ghost stories around the campfire at our yearly family reunion. I promise there really was fire, and not just smoke! Then of course you have to have a boy sticking some sort of object into the fire to have it all be complete. My nephew did the honors this year.

Family Reunion

My fire comes from the fabulous Winter Thorn at What Next. My comfy chair and glowing fire can make a girl very drowsy when she hasn’t got a dad scaring her (or making her laugh, as the case may be) with ghost stories!  I stay snug and warm in my chunky mesh turtleneck from Eclectic Wingtips and my sturdy boots from L’Emporio.

Sunday Morning Brunch

I received this lovely top from Vespah Wasp the other day and it was the perfect garment for the transition from summer to fall. Light and airy enough for warm weather but still protective enough for cool evening breezes. My hair is a recent release from Queue Marlowe, and finishing it all off are the divine Boho Boots from Nevery Lorakeet.

Mallory Cowen recently released a new skin called Mini, and it is quite a bit different from her other skins, but no less lovely. This one has a very natural look that I love.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Denim

What a fun challenge week! First I have to say thanks to Bruce. I met Bruce a couple of weeks ago. I don’t know him well, but he has good taste in clothes.  He probably wonders why some random chick commanded him to come pose for her, but hey, stranger things happen in SL! I am convinced he rues the day I wandered into his  trailer park! But thanks Bruce, you’re a trouper, and you look great in denim!

Fireside

It’s still a bit cool in the evenings around here so it’s not quite time to put the jackets and sweaters away. The time is coming, but not yet. Until then, the fire is warm and bright and the sweaters soft and cozy. And don’t forget the marshmallows!

    Lovely setting and pictures, Eliza. And I LOVE this Boots!!

In Full Bloom

In my neck of the woods spring was a long time coming. A long time. But all of a sudden this week the trees decided to wake up and put on a show. Flowering trees are my favorite in the springtime, and the showier the better. My all-time favorite, though, is the dogwood tree. There are five of them planted in front of one of the schools I drive by every day and they are spectacular. And it’s about time.

It brought to mind this lovely poem by Tony Hoagland entitled “Color of the Sky”. And since the words really do say it all, the last few lines are what I will leave you with today.

 

A little dogwood tree is losing its mind;

overflowing with blossomfoam,

like a sudsy mug of beer;

like a bride ripping off her clothes,

dropping snow white petals to the ground in clouds,

so Nature’s wastefulness seems quietly obscene.

It’s been doing that all week:

making beauty,

and throwing it away,

and making more.
