Lavender Blue

Lavender blue, dilly, dilly
Lavender green
If I were king, dilly, dilly
I’d need a queen

Who told me so
Dilly, dilly
Who told me so
I told myself, dilly, dilly
I told me so

Lavender Blue, English Folk Song (as sung by Burl Ives)

Beyond the Sea

The Under the Sea Expo is on right now and it is a stunning build. I have never been much of an underwater personality in SL but it is is quite popular with many residents, and at the Expo it is easy to see why. There are some wonderful underwater plant designs at the Expo so I tried my hand at underwater landscaping.

This shoot reminded me of the Julio Iglesias version of Beyond the Sea that was used at the end of the recent film Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

We’ll meet beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailin’

-Under the Sea, Bobby Darin

Unlike that fantastic film’s ending, though, I hope neither of us ends up shot in the head.

    Wow a lovely shot Eliza,the movement in it is gorgeous!!!

Fools Like Me

The beauty that you gave
Has turned upon itself
And all the things you said
Evaporated

Fools like me get so easily taken
And fools like me can be so mistaken

Hair Fair 2012: Water

I will probably be doing a couple more Hair Fair posts later this week, but for now I have done enough damage to my monthly Linden budget!!! That being said, here are my top five from the Water sim at Hair Fair. As I have said before, these are only a few of many, many more styles that you will find at Hair Fair. All of these can be found on the Water sim.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Iron

First things first: Thanks to everyone who commented last week–the lucky giveaway winners are (drum roll…..):

  1. Ygrey Auer
  2. Lashae Karsin
  3. Nicandra Laval

Congratulations ladies! Watch for your gift in-world! And for everyone else, keep on reading because I had so much fun with this I have decided to make it a weekly color-challenge event!

Now, however, we move on to Iron. There were so many ideas that came to mind–Iron Man, ironing, wrought iron, Iron Maiden (yikes!)…why don’t we just stop there! What stuck in my head most though was a song I sang in college, and it is pretty appropriate for the kind of weather we are having lately in my neck of the woods:

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

-Christina Rosetti, Gustav Holst

So what did I do? I grabbed my friend Caroline and we took to the snow, I in my ultra-chic jacket from Sascha Frangili and Caroline in a beautiful jewelry set from Endra Graves and one of this week’s color challenge offerings from Rezzie Luckstone:

So now for the giveaway…it will be the same as last week, you’ll have until Friday, January 27th at 11pm SLT to make a comment on this post. Winners will receive the Maggie Set from Artistry by E, beautifully modeled by Caroline. This week I will randomly draw two names from the list of comments. Now, I am not going to do jewelry every time, there will be other items in the future as well (guys, I am keeping you in mind!), but the talented Endra Graves has generously agreed to be my giver this week.

And even though we are past the Christmas season, if you are feeling like reliving the season a bit, here are two versions of “In The Bleak Midwinter”, the first by the great Annie Lennox and the second more traditional version from the Gloucester Cathedral Choir:

  9. mscrankypants

    I think iron is going to be one of my favourite weeks already — two great looks there.

    Hey, it’s Jasmine Ballinger, working around a stupid WordPress/Blogger communication issue.
