52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Madder Lake Deep

It was good to see that most everyone had to get creative with this color this week!!! I took a chance and asked the truly lovely Maxi Gossamer to show off her gorgeous self in my color challenge post this week, and as you can see, she did, after fiddling with her earrings for awhile!  And I found that the Santa Fe red option from her set is truly the right red for this color challenge—you can click through the image to see them up close. I just love this lady!

New Orleans

I went to New Orleans once. It was a nice visit, great street musicians, and lots of energy. What it wasn’t was quiet and romantic. And yet that’s how Barnesworth Anubis’ New Orleans studio balcony felt like, set above the street and so a little removed from the hustle and bustle of below. A perfect opportunity to show off Stewart’s new duds from FATEwear.

Stepping Back

Tuesdays are a relatively light teaching day for me, so I always try to get caught up on whatever grading and paperwork is piling up on Tuesdays. Of course the minute you make plans five million other things happen to keep you from getting them done. Such was this day. So at the end of it I hid myself away where no one could find me, thanks to this high-walled garden from Barnesworth Anubis. What a gorgeous place to escape for a bit!

I have been trying on all the different colors of the new Grace skin from Hush Darkrose and loving every single one. I so look forward to each new release! Another new release today comes from Arkesh Baral at Mayfly with the new Liquid Light line. I will definitely be taking more pics later, but don’t they look dreamy?

And lastly, I have to mention my earrings. They are from a new-t0-me designer, Jackeline Kronfeld At JKTrends. I love the depth and texture of the metal and the lovely inlaid jewels.

Holding On

Summer vacation is one month away. I confess that this year it is getting increasingly difficult to hold on—especially since I was ready for summer back in March! So today I am imagining myself in a summer getaway and doing some dreaming in the shade of palm trees and Barnesworth Anubis’ gorgeous tableau hut.

Summer, I’ll see you soon.

I have had one or another of Hush Darkrose’s skins on probably for the last month at least. Every new one that comes out just makes me that much more of a Hush aficionado. This one is a newer skin called Marin, and I love the realistic lighting and flushed cheeks. You can’t be in the tropics and avoid this. Another favorite of mine today is the Inlaid Seahorse necklace from Maxi Gossamer. Maxi has a style all her own and this one has to be one of my favorites.
