Fly

Fly

I can’t deny it anymore, fall is on it’s way! The mornings are a little cooler and the combines are starting to move into the fields to start the harvest, the Barn Swallows are beginning to flock into large groups for the flight south, and I’ve already seen Canada Geese and Sandhill Cranes on the move. I do love fall, or autumn if you prefer, but it signifies the end of summer and that’s always kind of sad. In the spring I always feel it’s a time of fresh starts and new life. The snow melting and the first blades of grass are always nice to see and then the arrival of the birds that come here for the summer to nest. The Barn Swallows arrived about a week earlier than usual, this year, and they seem to be gathering to head south a little early too. I’m not sure where the summer has gone, it feels like it was only a month ago that the snow was finally gone and the grass starting to grow. I fear that there isn’t going to be any glorious fall colours here this year. The summer was far too dry and at this point the leaves have just started to turn brown on a lot of the trees. It’s been one of those summers that the hardy people of the Canadian prairie sum it up well by saying, “Well, maybe next year!”.

I wanted to really bring out the tattoo I’m wearing here so I chose to go black and white for this one. I love birds of all kinds but have a special affinity for some. The Corvids(crow family) are favourites of mine, at least in thought. The cheeky little wrens are fun to watch as they’re so industrious and the barn swallows are always welcome. They’re good for keeping insect populations down in the yard and watching them raise their young is always interesting. Ok, back to the tattoo, no one cares that I like birds! 😛 The ‘Swallows’ tattoo from Metamorphoses Tattoo caught my eye immediately with these beautiful birds so nicely placed. The front of this tattoo includes two bird pasties and a nice little flock on the belly along with one on each hand and also one for the left cheek. It’s compatible with classic avatars as well as Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, TMP, Eve, and *KL* Lena mesh bodies plus any bodies that are compatible with the Omega system. The little swallow on the cheek is compatible with the Catwa and Omega compatible mesh heads. You’ll find this tattoo and more at the Metamorphoses Tattoo main store or on Market Place.

You can just see the top of the ‘Thong Panty’ from Solange!. It’s Maitreya and SLink mesh body compatible along with standard sizing.

You can only see the back of the Boys and Girls 69 hair from DURA Hair. Along with the hair base from the master HUD for the Catwa ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head.

I know that skin tone doesn’t mean much in black and white, but I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

And as for the home decor around me, I love the ‘Love Make’ sign from [Krescendo]. Which is in the lyrics of the song ‘The End’ by The Beatles.

The ‘Filmore Factory Clock’, which is a real clock keeping time for me with my home time zone, is from 7 Emporium.

The ‘Yesteryears Vintage Chair’ is from Zen Creations. I love the rustic and homey feel it has.

The ‘Vintage Lighting-Star Globe, RARE’ is from the Vintage Lighting gacha set from ::Static::.

The ‘Majestic Radio’ is from the ‘Vintage Radio’ gacha set from KraftWork. All of the radios in this set come with two versions, one is just decor and the other scripted to stream.

The ‘Side Table’ is from the ‘Dark Oak’ gacha set from Bee Designs, and available until the end of the month at The Chapter Four.

The house plants are from {what next}.

And last but not least, the pose! I’m using the number 2 pose from the ‘Slow Burn’ pose set from Gingerfish Poses.

A Hot Night, Hennessy, and Me!

A Hot Night, Hennessy, and Me!

It’s been a hot summer, so far!! The days are long and the sun is high in the sky for what seems like forever, burning down on the land with it’s unforgiving heat! We’ve had little rain, so everything seems scorched with the grass yellowing and that new fresh look of spring long gone! On days that it gets up to +30°C and higher, are the worst. We tell ourselves that it’s nice because it’s a ‘dry’ heat but really. dry or not, it’s still flippin’ hot! The nights that don’t cool down are the hardest to take. I count on cool nights to get the temperature down in the house with a nice cool breeze coming in the windows, but every now and then the night just won’t cool down! When it’s 6 Am and the thermometer already says +25°C, there’s going to be no escape! I know to anyone from the south western States are laughing at me right now, but you have to remember that the winters here are frigid so the difference in summer to winter is sometimes 75°C and more! So when we say it’s hot, it may not be to others, but for us in the great white north, it’s HOT! My answer to this hot summer night, is to strip off my pyjama top, grab a smooth and delicious bottle of Hennessy, and sit on the dock with my feet in the water! I’m not sure how long I’ll sit out here, but with the stars in the sky, the soft breeze on my bare skin, and a little bit of a buzz, it might be awhile!

I’d like to welcome Imitation to my little family of Featured Designers!! Their bento poses and pose props are a pleasure to work with with natural and expressive poses along with bento hand positions that really add to a look! The devil’s in the details, so they say! 🙂 I’m using one of the seven poses from the ‘Kendra’ set, which includes the bottle of Hennessy to pose with. This set is available now at the Imitation main store and Market Place.

The gorgeous butterfly tattoo on my shoulder is ‘Morpho’ and it’s a recent release from Metamorphoses Tattoo. It includes 2 tones of ink and is compatible with classic avatars plus just about every mesh body known to man! The beautiful details, the soft lines, and the fact that it’s a butterfly all make this tattoo perfect for the barely there summer tops! Love!

I’m completely in love with the ‘Mila’ hair from [KoKoLoReS]! This is from the Balayage pack and the detailed texturing is just phenomenal!! It’s available until July 16 at the Hair Fair 2017.

I’m keeping it cool with just pyjama bottoms for my outing! I hope the neighbours are away tonight!! These are the Slumber Party Shorts, pinstripe from the Slumber Party gacha set by Tres Blah!

My whole look begins with the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.
