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.

The Fox

The Fox went out on a chilly night
He prayed for the moon to give him light
For he had many a mile to go that night
Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o
He had many a mile to go that night
Before he reached the town-o

He ran till he came to the farmers pen
The ducks and the geese were kept therein
He said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o
A couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town-o

-The Fox, Traditional Folk Song, performed by Nickel Creek

Waiting

Dear Mother Nature,

I live in New England. This brings certain expectations that there will be seasons. Those seasonal expectations do NOT include 80-plus degree weather in September. If our winter is the same as last year I am sure I will be bemoaning that when the time comes as well, but for now, Mother Nature, please bring on the autumn that I moved to New England for.

Sincerely yours,

Sweaty Eliza

Breathing Space

I have been meaning to get to this sweet pose by Luna Jubilee since it was released at the Men’s Dept. this month…but it wasn’t until Winter Thorn’s lovely Lisbeth Garden Blanket set was released at Collabor88 that I had the perfect setting for it. Thanks to Stewart for helping me with the pose today.

To Be Sung Upon the Water

Beautiful, my delight,
Pass, as we pass the wave.
Pass, as the mottled night
Leaves what it cannot save,
Scattering dark and bright.

Beautiful, pass and be
Less than the guiltless shade
To which our vows were said;
Less than the sound of the oar
To which our vows were made,
Less than the sound of its blade
Dipping the stream once more.

— Louise Bogan, To Be Sung Upon the Water; music by Samuel Barber

Under the Sea

Garvie Garzo released some spectacular items for Fantasy Faire. I checked today and they are still there—but they could be gone any time. Here I have featured the Waterhorse Pair and Fantastic Voyage Carved Stone. Also released at Fantasy Faire is the lovely and ethereal Hands Dream grass from Alegria.

Woods

Little Red Riding Hood is not one of my favorite fairy tales. I find myself saying “really?” too many times. Much more fun and modern is Roald Dahl’s hilarious version which you can read here.
However, I do love the beautiful dress and cloak from Apsara, the cute basket from Tea Soup, and the gorgeous wolf from Alchemy, all at the Enchantment event.
