Y Is For Yellow

1 Y is for Yellow A

I can’t believe the Inventory Alphabet Challenge is almost over. This has been a fun challenge, some letters tougher than others. I knew from day A, though, that Y would be for yellow. It is a happy colour full of warmth and sunshine. And I knew from day A that I would use this flower-filled hill at It all starts with a smile. The rest was just details – I have a LOT of yellow stuff in my inventory.

I have already taken the photo for Z…I just have to process it and write the post. I have a lot of other pictures I took during the course of this challenge that I just haven’t had time to blog; I may slow down on shooting more pictures until those have seen the light of day. Or maybe I’ll just save them for a rainy day.

Sometimes I feel the pressure to blog only new things. But is an outfit that I put together from pieces that were new a couple of weeks ago really old? Unless it is a limited edition item, the dress or shoes or pose is still available for sale in the creator’s store and a later post is a reminder of this. I admit I do a lot of my shopping at sales events, rather than going to individual stores. I also blog for a few events, and while I have a responsibility to show items while the event is running I try to use the things I have been given later on, just so my readers are aware of something pretty they may have missed the first time around or I wasn’t able to show during the event. I am grateful to the designers who provide review copies to event bloggers; we aren’t their hand-picked bloggers and I do appreciate the trust they place in those of us selected by event coordinators. I have gotten past the point where I feel pressured to blog every single item that I receive; not everything is my style and I refuse to blog something that I can’t make look as good as I possibly can.

There is a point to my rambling. This challenge has reminded me of a lot of lovely things that have been languishing in my inventory for a while, and even a few things I had forgotten about or hadn’t even opened. Other than the hair I am wearing in this photo, everything is an older item. Yes, probably only a few months old, at most, but in the world of Second Life blogging, that is practically ancient history. Going back through my belongings during this past three-and-a-half weeks has given me an opportunity to remember that “new-to-me” can be just as exciting as “new-to-everyone.”

    You are so right Cao…
    I know Ive missed a few days, but catching up now. Coming to this blog to see what Peep had conjured up for us made me happy.

    Aww, sweet story AND great lovely photo! I just posted “T” today… haha… I’m slowly catching up to you! I’d love to do this challenge again… in… you know… maybe 3 years! :))

    It’s been a lot of fun, thanks so much for playing! I think “we” are going to apply for an LEA land grant this summer, either for Medici University:

    or else for Edie’s Farm:

    Whichever it is… it’d be great to dream up another blog challenge like last summer. HAHAHA perhaps “Farm Animals from A 2 Z!” 😛

      LOL! That sounds delightfully devious and dastardly! (I’m stuck in alliteration mode since this challenge started and I can’t quite get out of it!)

      Good luck with the grant, whichever way you go ❤
