Calling

In my student days I lived in Chapel Hill, North Carolina on the third floor of an apartment complex that had a dense wood behind it. It is to this day my favorite place I have ever lived. In the wood were bright yellow American goldfinches, hawks, sparrows, towhees and my favorite, the Northern Cardinal.  The cardinals would fly in a swooping, rising and falling pattern until they reached my balcony, where my birdfeeder hung. I spent a lot of hours sitting by the window and watching the birds come and go, and in the spring seeing the young ones fledge from the nest and hop adorably around on the ground searching for seeds and calling to each other. The place I live now is fully urban with more asphalt than trees, and the only birds we get are the raucous and belligerent European starlings who do well in parking lots and the occasional urban square of lawn. In the winter, though, I think back to those magical snowfalls and ice storms in North Carolina and the flash of crimson red moving about on the white snow. One day I want to live in a place like that again.

The Neve/coldLogic team has released beautiful winter coats for the season and I chose one in creamy white for this photo today. I also love Sh0rtie’s mesh knit gloves from the Wayward Market; good realistic looking gloves are hard to find, especially if you are picky like me and like them to be pretty as well. These fit the bill and are available in several different color combinations. The star of the show is the Northern Cardinal from Half Deer. I bought these last year and they strike the same delight in me now as they did then.

I took this photo in front of my house on Studland Bay. It is part of the Tour of Lights, which runs through the end of tomorrow. Please feel free to stop by and have a look around, and follow the tour to see some of the other fun home decorations on the grid!

Roar

So many of the designers in the Pop region of Rhapsody did such amazing work that I can’t post enough to get to them all…so I am wearing as much as possible in this post!

This adorable pose is from Joli, and is in a pack containing several poses named after pop divas. The floral headband from Noodles complements the adorable halter and shorts from N2. And not to be out-done, Half-Deer’s Plastique shoes add a little something extra. I took my picture on the Rhapsody sim at the store for .Click, because it was just too cute to resist.

Also noteworthy from Half-Deer is the delicate Sweet Melody piercing. It might just be almost worth it to have holes poked in your face for these!
