Second Life Portraits With A Difference

Stolen Stars From The Sky

He must have stolen some stars from the sky,
And gave them to you to wear in your eyes.
I had my chances, but I set you free.
And now I wonder why I couldn’t see.
~ From “You Look So Good In Love” by George Strait

Oh, what a beautiful song…it’s about love and loss and memories. It is sad and wistful with a touch of regret. It is proof that you don’t need a pickup truck or Mama or an ole yeller dog to write a perfect country song.

I was reminded of this tune when I saw the latest creation from Cheeky Pea for Uber. As with everything Isla Gealach creates, the textures are amazing the detail is incredible. I actually got goose bumps reading the little quotes on the stars and moons decorating the canopy. And with all twelve zodiac signs available as a wall-hanging, you can chart your stars to suit any horoscope.

You can share it with your sweetheart or curl up and reminisce about stolen stars from the sky.

Pretty stuff I’m showing off:

Waiting For The Post

5 Comments

1 Waiting for the Post 1

It’s rare to actually wait for the postman anymore. FedEX or StarTrack, maybe, but most days I check my mailbox and, despite the “No junk mail” placard, I find my box stuffed with realtor and pizza delivery ads. With texting and instant messaging it is also rare to even receive a “real” email.

I do remember the times, though, when the stop at the postbox would bring a smile to my face with a card, a letter or even a postcard (do they still make those?). Even the inconvenience of having to make a trip to the post office was overshadowed by the knowledge that a parcel too large for the box awaited me.

My postman, by the way, never rings twice; I’m lucky if he makes the 20-step trek to my front door, and I went into a panic before Christmas when he haphazardly stuffed a delivery into my box, only to have my neighbour rescue it…then forget to tell me she had picked it up for a week. Trust me; you do NOT want to have to deal with AusPost customer service in the lead up to the holiday!

Occasionally, though, there is still something other than a bill or junk, a treasure trove to be savoured and remembered, as a nostalgic remembrance of simpler times.

The postbox in my photo that brought on those memories is located at Rwah’s newest photography sim, Purple Crayons. It will be open soon; I’ll give details when it goes public. It is truly a destination not to be missed! Edit: Purple Crayons is now open! Also open now is Sneak Peek, so plan on doing some shopping!

#SecondLifeProblems Meme

10 Comments

1 #SLProblems 1

I’m running late to do Strawberry Singh’s latest Monday Meme, but I couldn’t pass this one up! I actually snorted reading her blog and seeing other memes on Flickr and Facebook. Something tells me that this isn’t going to just stop at a blog challenge for a lot of people; I can envision tee shirts and decorative items (perhaps even in counted cross-stitch) with these little gems plastered all over them. I have actually spent the last two days during my commute to and from work coming up with quite a lot of different possibilities!

I ended up actually combining two separate #SecondLifeProblems I have personally encountered to include in my entry. You’ve seen part one at the top of my post (true story). But here is the rest of that story…and probably one you have encountered, too.

1 #SLProblems 2

Yep, it disappeared :( Only in Second Life!

I was rushed to get these photos and post done tonight, but this is a long weekend coming up for me, so I may try to do a few more and post to my Flickr page. I must say that thinking about all of those #SecondLifeProblems made my trips home much more entertaining :)

If you want to participate, here are the rules:

Meme Instructions: Create a #SecondLifeProblems meme image. It can be an image of any avatar doing anything in Second Life. Write a Second Life Problem over the image and share your meme on your blog or any social network with the hashtag #SecondLifeProblems. Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments (of this post) and add your pictures to the Blog Memes flickr group.

If nothing else, go visit the Blog Memes Flickr group. I think I have carpal tunnel syndrome from hitting the Like star so much!
