Sweet Thing

Sweet Thing

I will stroll the merry way and jump the hedges first
I will drink clear clean water for to quench my thirst
I’ll go watch the ferry-boats and I’ll get high
On the bluer ocean against the waters sky
I will walk and talk in gardens all wet with rain
I will never ever ever grow so old again

Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing
Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing

I shall drive my chariot down – your streets and cry
Hey it’s me tonight I’m dynamite and I don’t know why
You shall take me strongly in your arms again
And I still wonder if I ever felt the pain
We shall walk and talk in gardens all misty wet with rain
And I shall never, ever, ever grow so cold again

Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing
Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing

I shall raise my hand up into the night, to the night sky
And count the stars that are shining in your eye
Just to dig it all and not to wonder that would be fine
You said its fine not to read in between the lines

Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing
Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing
Oooh my my my my my sweet thing
Oooh good God.

Sweet Thing‘ ~Hozier~ (Van Morrison cover)

My crush on Eddie Vedder is well documented here on the blog, and I’m hoping it’s perfectly normal to have a crush on someone famous? Even at my age? Please tell me that crushes aren’t limited to the young, because it they are, well that just sucks! If I find out that I’m an anomaly and I’m alone in this, it could be a little awkward, but I’m pretty confident that anyone can have a crush, and it can be on anyone. I mean, I think it’s kind of cute when someone says they have a crush on someone else, and if it happens to be you it’s a huge compliment, I think. Unless of course the person tells you they have a crush on you by painting it on your garage door, or chases you down the street while you’re walking, then it’s just creepy! Why I mention Eddie Vedder and a crush is that EV is safe in the number one spot on my list of crushes, but he’s seriously being challenged by Hozier! I love this guy, he’s a great songwriter, plays the guitar, and his hair……now this guy can rock a man-bun! 😀 There has to be way more than that to be crush worthy for me, it’s not about any one thing. It’s the overall package and Hozier has it! I’m hoping someone will tell me who their crush is, it’ll make me feel a little better about this issue and not so alone!! 😛

This picture is all about the pose, and of course, the kitty! I like cats, if anyone asks if I’m a cat or a dog person I have to say both. They both have pros and cons, they’re just different. Shadow’s Poses has a new release called ‘Cat Power‘. It’s a bento pose and the pack includes the cat, but I’m sure you could put a pup in there instead if you’re more of a dog person! Either way you’ll look super sexy spending time with your companion.

I made a quick visit to The Arcade this morning and I scored the ‘Kallista Bodysuit, RARE’ from {le fille casse}. There isn’t a huge amount of fabric involved in it, but it’s super sexy!

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram.

I’ve added the ‘Trinket Necklace, short’ from Cae here.

I’m wearing the ‘Enigma’ tattoo from Queen oF Ink, I feel naked if I don’t have it on, now.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Moondance

Moondance

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

[Chorus:]
Can I just have one a’ more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can’t wait ’til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you’re never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can’t hide

Moondance‘ ~Van Morrison~

It’s cloudy and cool, a bit of drizzle coming down and a light breeze from the north makes it cooler than the temperature suggests. The lights are low and the house is warm as I sit in a mostly dark computer room, with only a salt lamp casting a dim light beside the computer. The dog’s stretched out on her bed, sound asleep, and everything outside is tucked in for the night, which leaves me here to sit quietly and think. I’ve had far too much coffee today, I’ve seen too much news, and although the day was quiet, I’m a little unsettled. I can enjoy this cozy solitude though, I have a beautifully scented candle burning and I’m really tempted to get the furnace to kick in to have it really toasty in here this evening. This is my reality at this moment, but what I want to be doing? The picture is worth a thousand words, snuggled warmly in Vrir’s arms, both of us elegantly dressed, the piano awaits someone to play so we can dance long into the night, pressed close together. Because it’s a marvelous night for a moon dance, with the stars up above in the sky. And I can’t deny it’s a fantabulous night to make romance ‘neath the cover of August(?) skies. Tonight in my thoughts I’m going to dance like no one’s watching and love like I’ve never been hurt. ♥

I’m wearing the form fitting and elegant ‘Nadine Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* for the evening of romance and dancing. It’s a new release at the main store and it’s truly gorgeous. It’s simple top leaves the perfect amount of skin for the imagination, the flowing skirt that trails beautifully behind, and the brocade detailing all make this a classic. It comes in 32 colours and is fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The gorgeous ‘Bloom’ hair is from Truth Hair, this is from the ‘Multitone 1’ set.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ Mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is one of the animations from the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg and available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Sepia Peonies’ from Nomad are on the piano.

Shut Up and Kiss Me

Shut Up and Kiss Me

Don’t mean to get a little forward with you, don’t mean to get ahead of where we are
Don’t mean to act a little nervous around you, I’m just a little nervous about my heart ’cause
It’s been awhile since I felt this feeling that everything that you do gives me
It’s been so long since somebody whispered
Shut up and kiss me

Didn’t expect to be in this position, didn’t expect to have to rise above
My reputation for cynicism, I’ve been a jaded lady when it comes to love but
Oh baby just to feel this feeling that everything that you do gives me
It’s been too long since somebody whispered
Shut up and kiss me

There’s something about the silent type attracting me to you
All business baby none of the hype
That no talker can live up to

Come closer baby I can’t hear you, just another whisper if you please
Don’t worry ’bout the details darlin’, you’ve got the kind of mind I love to read
Talk is cheap and baby time’s expensive, so why waste another minute more
Life’s too short to be so apprehensive, love’s as much the symptom darlin’ as the cure
Oh baby when I feel this feeling, it’s like genuine voodoo hits me
It’s been too long since somebody whispered…
Oh baby I can feel this feeling that everything that you do gives me
It’s been too long since somebody whispered
Shut up and kiss me
Shut up and kiss me

‘Shut Up and Kiss Me’ ~Mary Chapin Carpenter~

The theory that a girl has to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince sounds so negative. I like to think that no matter how many people you’ve tested the waters of love with, they all bring something to your life. Maybe not all good, but hopefully the bad was part of a lesson learned. I’ve learned some lessons along the way, the biggest one that sometimes someone can be disguised as a prince and once the real person shows, it’s like a nightmare you can’t wake up from. But, overall I like to think that each person will be in your life for a reason, and they may not be there long, but hopefully something can be taken away from the experience. I know I sound almost too positive and happy about failed love, so don’t get me wrong, I’ve come in contact with some complete frogs that have no sign of a prince anywhere in them……..but I’m happy to say that I’ve met my Prince now, and couldn’t be happier. ♥

The theme for this round of Enchantment is ‘The Frog Prince’ and for the occasion, Elle Boutique has created the ‘Ray Necklace & Earrings’ exclusively for it. The intricate design features an adorable frog with a crown and firefly, with tons of options for customization. They’re HUD driven with 7 metals and 12 bead textures, along with being SL materials enabled and resize/delete on touch. The earrings and necklace are sold separately or in the fluffy pack. Enchantment runs until August 31.

I’m loving the new hair from tram here, which I grabbed while fighting the lag at the August round of Collabor88. It’s HUGE with it being the Birthday round, so there’s tons of guest designers. The hair is ‘H0726’ and this is from HUD A.

I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. The little question mark is the ‘Enigma’ tattoo from Queen oF Ink.

I’m using the ‘Prince Charming’ frog and pose from Le Poppycock. I found it on Market Place, but not sure if it’s in the main store.

All For You

All For You

Finally I figured out, but it took a long long time
And now there’s a turnabout, Maybe cause I’m trying

There’s been times, I’m so confused
All my roads, They lead to you
I just can’t turn, And walk away…

It’s hard to say, What it is I see in you
Wonder if I’ll always, Be with you
But words can’t say, And I can’t do
Enough to prove, It’s all for you

I thought I’d seen it all, ‘Cause it’s been a long long time
But then we’ll trip and fall, Wondering if I’m blind

Rain comes pouring down (Pouring down)
Falling from blue skies (Falling from blue skies)
Words without a sound, Coming from your eyes

All For You‘ ~Sister Hazel~

I’m sure there comes a time in everyone’s life that they’ve finally figured something out. Over the years I’ve figured out a few things…….like how many introverts it takes to change a lightbulb……one…..why does everything have to be a social gathering! I figured out that if a day starts out bad it can only get better, and vice versa. But then, I ponder it and realize it can always get worse….oh man, can it get worse! And, when I finally think I’ve figured it all out, I realize it’s taken me too long and I’ve forgotten most of it!

It’s Saturday, and I have something I want to show you…….so let’s get at it!

One of the most anticipated events of the year is the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, and Elle Boutique is there for it! Exclusive to this event is the ‘Bloom Bento Rings, they include a little bit of summertime flora and fauna and with the intricate swirls and curls, they’re lots of fun for almost any outfit! They’re rigged for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza bento hands, use SL materials, and the HUD includes 7 metals, 14 stones plus an on/off toggle. The Mesh Body Addicts Fair runs until August 21.

This is one of the prettiest short hair styles, ever…in my opinion. It’s the ‘H0531’ hair from tram, and this is from Hud A.

The top, that you can only see the straps of, is a new release from /erratic/ called ‘Miriam Top’.

The little question mark tattoo is ‘Enigma’ from Queen oF Ink.

As always, I’m wearing thy ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Mexico City’ set of poses from Ana Poses.

Thank You

Thank You

My tea’s gone cold, I’m wondering why I got out of bed at all
the morning rain clouds up my window and I can’t see at all
And even if I could it’d all be grey, but your picture on my wall
it reminds me that it’s not so bad
it’s not so bad

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay
my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there’ll be hell today
I’m late for work again
and even if I’m there, they’ll all imply that I might not last the
day
and then you call me and it’s not so bad
it’s not so bad and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Push the door, I’m home at last and I’m soaking through and
through
then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
and even if my house falls down now, I wouldn’t have a clue
because you’re near me and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Thank You‘ ~Dido~

Just a song for you today, it’s been another hot day, and it’s a Friday night, so you know what that means……..yea…..neither do I. It’s just another evening, the same as the rest. 🙂

Shadow’s Poses has a new release out on Market Place and Lou’s created a nice simple and easy to use pose with a guitar prop for your photographic needs. It’s casual and relaxed, which I know doesn’t show well here, since I decided on using the close up shot of me. But everyone needs to see Liz in a close up now and then. 🙂 It’s for bento hands and the pack comes with the pose, pose ball, and guitar prop.

The ‘H0210’ hair is from tram. It’s a cute little pixie cut and flatters most face shapes perfectly.

I started out wearing a nice casual outfit, then I decided I’d go for something a little sexier, trying to emulate Lou’s sexiness……but then I took off my clothes and said, ‘to h*ll with clothes….the guitar covers me enough’. I am wearing a tattoo though, the ‘Enigma’ tattoo from Queen oF Ink is one I rarely go without.

Oh….and skin….I have my skin on. 😀 I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the options from the ‘Satin Eyeshadow’ set from Buzzeri.
