When I met you in the summer

When I met you in the summer

Summer is in full swing and the events are a playground of all things light and skimpy, and super cute and playful. Now that we have managed to get through all of these events, minus hair fair which is to come….we needed some play time. Izzie wasn’t exactly aiming for the water yet…but I am pretty sure she was skating closer…and closer….and closer….

Lost in your eyes and I lose all track of time

Yep, broke my way into c88 as early as I could. While I hesitated because I am not exactly all into the theme, I think the designers did a fabulous job with it! I was happily surprised, and left with a lot more than I expected! I don’t have to tell you to make sure and go by, I know you will. If you haven’t already!

I hear echoes in the garden. Is anybody listening?

I hear echoes in the garden. Is anybody listening?

I hear echoes in the garden. Is anybody listening? I hear lost echoes in the garden! Is anybody listening? And they whisper: “The ones who are only living, are the ones who are only dying.”

Though I used to have and use the plug in a few years ago, there is new life in the use of Flaming Pear plug ins, and well deserved attention! I used them quite a while ago and the images are so out of date now, I don’t even want to share them lol. However, the last time I used them resulted in this.  Absolutely horrific when you consider the way Second Life looks now, that was back in 2008! I didn’t purchase the plug in so it appears I only did a couple of shots with it. It is a fantastic addition to your plug ins and we are seeing a few images that look remarkable after using it. Well, they were remarkable before, you people are far too talented and I’d like you to slow down so I have some small chance of catching up and competing! In order to use the plug in I had to reinstall it and get it working with the help of a great tutorial by Berry found here.  I really need to dig in and try some of her others, the couple I have watched so far have been great.

my location for this shot is a featured area in the Second Life Destination Guide. Echos in the garden is an absolutely stunning work of interactive art open for anyone to visit. I am finding the most lovely places through the destination guide these days, and thought it would be nice to blog them and see if others enjoy them as much as I do. Be sure to use the region settings and have your volume on and up. This hauntingly beautiful installation by Rose Borchovski on the “Susa Bubble” story will stay with you, and inspire. If anyone else has visited and I missed it, I really need to pay more attention. Its so nice to be exploring in Second Life again.

And you claim you're so low key, well you coulda fooled me
The latest round of My Attic @ The Deck has started and SYSY’s has released these fabulous pieces! She never lets us down and this round has made sets of lovely high waisted pencil skirts with a belt, polka dot tops and matching pumps to go with the high SLink feet. Pinup variety abounds lately, and these pieces are sure to work with many of the other items that designers have been releasing this month. I feel like Karmin would fit in SL perfectly these days!

Palamar, Shalamar, Swanny Shore Let me dig that jive once more

I am just getting to where I feel a bit more caught up and am happily sitting in my brand spanking new (to me) office! Ahhh, its so nice to get to spread my things out and sit back, get some shopping done in SL and get back to work too. I’m so extremely thankful after not having my own space for so long. Working on a laptop is fine and all, don’t get me wrong, but this? Nothing can beat this! Well, except twice as much space as this. Then, maybe….

I found these adorably sweet poses from the Theme Park this month, they fit with this outfit that I’ve been wandering around in for a few days while I tinkered with my inventory and rebuild half of our family sim, again. Yes, again, I can’t help it. I haven’t found the build that I could live with yet! Its coming…this time! I know after all this time of being hit and miss, the views on my blog have dwindled and I have no one to blame but myself, however I am going to be working hard this summer to pick that back up and do more than I have with the blog before. Check back…or run, far far away…. wait, I didn’t really mean run!

Happy Hump Day people, get out there and have some fun!

A couple of events just started and I couldn’t resist a wee bit of shopping. Be sure to stop by The Attic for this stunning hair by Mina and beautiful dress by DCNY. I also took a stop over at Eudora, they are participating in the new 21 shoe event. It features designers that are giving you 2 for the price of 1, and it starts on the 21st of every month. Here is just one of the designs from Eudora for these boots. While you are there, take a look at the huge variety of boots and shoe patterns. I am also wearing Maci, a new skin by Izzie that is out now at TLC’s The Boutique. Its absolutely lovely, as always.

I haven’t really rambled much lately, and though the break must of been nice, Dina Rambles today! I got to catch up with some old friends today and am so extremely happy for the progress people are making. Its nice to see people finding their way to being happy and I am excited to hear how things go from here. On my RL front, I am anxiously wanting this month to be over, and February can be over too, please.  I am being as patient as possible while we await to hear if our offer on our dream home has been accepted, or at the very least how the negotiations are progressing. My nerves are afire and I am not sleeping much, but I am excited and happier than have been in forever! Even if this house falls through, we have 2nd and 3rd choices, so by this summer….boxes! Does anyone have any boxes laying around that I could have?

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow’s a mystery
I can see you lookin’ back at me

I’m just doing what we’re told

1914

After clicking our way into C88, even before the middle of the month, we decided to see what kind of trouble we could get into this evening. I may have to drag her kicking and screaming….

And I feel something so wrong
By doing the right thing
I couldn’t lie, couldn’t lie, couldn’t lie
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly
