Warm At Twilight

1-warm-at-twilight-sm

Usually when I am doing a Home & Garden post, I build a set, shoot the photos and immediately take everything down. It’s not that I don’t like the looks I create; rather, I am generally just trying to be tidy and clear the space for the next go around. This time, however, while collecting the credits, I plopped down on the sofa with a sigh. I’m not sure exactly why I did it; it might be because the sofa from .. Warm Animations .. for Shiny Shabby looked so inviting. Perhaps it was because this room has a different feel than most of my settings (slightly more masculine, don’t you think?) Or possible it was because it was a chilly day for spring and the sun had just set in my real world and I simply wanted a comfortable spot to rest my bones.

Whatever the reason, I sat back and relaxed, quiet at home, warm at twilight.

Miss Isabelle Waits For A Dance

1 Isabelle sm

Calmly she taps her toe to the soft jazz, waiting to be asked to dance. The tinkle of ice cubes in glasses, the quiet murmur of hushed voices of the dancers fill her head. She is not uncomfortable; just a bit self-conscious. “Soon,” she thinks, “soon.”

Isabelle is the latest creation from *Just BECAUSE*, available now at Uber. Get it before her dance card is full.

Guest Appearance

1 Guest Appearance sm

It kind of feels like I am making a guest appearance on my own blog. I know I haven’t been very active lately; my real life job is sapping my energy and time. I am going to try to play catch up in the next few days; this photo (and the one for my next post) I actually took last weekend. But I just got around to working on them last night. What a way to spend a Friday evening!

The pretty nightie and shoes are gacha prizes from Salt & Pepper for The Gacha Garden. So delicate and feminine! The shrug is also by S&P for the same event, but it is the Seed of Inspiration prize. For those of you not familiar with this event, the vendor rewards you with a special gift after playing the machine 20 times. That is your seed of inspiration to keep playing! The shrug works with all of the pieces; the common babydoll and the rare dresses. You could even pair it with any other sleeveless top you have, making it a very versatile piece.

I’m keeping the commentary short; head to the credits for all of the details – they’re what are really important!
