Stars

121815a

Stars, in your multitudes
Scarce to be counted
Filling the darkness
With order and light

Stars, Herbert Kreztmer, Les Miserables

I love stars, both the real ones and the representations we make for decoration. I used the elegant hanging stars from Striped Mocha to add a little brightness to this room. My house on Studland Bay is part of the Tour of Lights sponsored by Freebird this season, so I invite you to stop by and have a wander through, many of my favorite decorations came from the Winter Gacha Festival this year.

Amanda

The first (and last!) time I tried out for the track team at school I fell flat on my face. I finally had to stop wearing heels even as an adult because of the many times I tripped on them. My knees are a battlefield of scars. I rejoiced when the late 90s arrived and chunky heels became fashionable, but I only fell down slightly less regularly. My 9th grade students still speak with awe and astonishment about the time I tripped on a backpack and landed in a terrible face-plant, having thrown my brand new computer across the room and into a cinderblock wall. I slipped and fell straight onto my back once in the school courtyard, my water bottle, pencils, car keys and papers flying all over, causing the lone student passing through to hesitate, wondering if he should help me or pretend for both our sakes that he didn’t see me. My husband covered his face in shame earlier this year when I tripped into a shelf of candles at Bath and Body Works and knocked them onto the floor where they shattered into smithereens.

You get the idea?

So when Sands Leavitt releases a sexy dress like this one, I wear it with delight . I also figure that in Kenadee Cole’s beautiful Inferno Heels at The Secret Affair, I can walk around knowing that I will not fall down, run into anyone or anything, or end up bleeding. In real life I would be eyeing those stairs with trepidation.

At Rest

 

The beautiful Jessie set from Ravyn Hynes of Mudhoney was the inspiration for this room…it’s simple elegance was the perfect foundation for a room that ended up being a lovely place to spend an hour or an afternoon…or if I am perfectly honest, a whole day. The Jessie set can be found at Festival of Sin II until September 5th.

Flux Sur Mer

Flux Sur Mer is a beautiful new sim with several differently styled areas—it was the perfect backdrop for my photos today. As you can see, I am still experimenting with my new mesh heads and learning the ins and outs. I do like that there is a minimum of correction that needs to happen on a mesh head photo…I guess I can add that to my pros column! My luminous skin applier today is a new release from Ele Brandi of Modish.
