The angels rejoiced at the sound

Happy Monday! Ok, it’s back to work today so not so happy about that. Though there is a lot to be happy for and I’m always grateful for that and more.  I went a little poetic on this picture using the new gacha by 8f8 at The Epiphany.  I have a few themes going here.  The angels are rejoicing and yet the sound broke glass.  Solo concert for that special one in your life — so does it matter if they couldn’t really play that well?

Enjoy! ♥

Unexpected winds

The title came from having an unexpected sneeze. I’m fighting a cold. Like it came out of nowhere. It sucks to be sick.  I don’t know about you all, but I get a little grumpy when sick.  I’m also contagious, as a friend said I gave him the cold through skype.  Moi?  Sneeze.

Hope you enjoy my picture today.  I’m getting all into the autumn season now so stay tuned for more delicious warm colors of fall.

This old photograph

The other day I was looking at something on Flickr and the number of photos that I had on Flickr caught my eye.  It’s 2,785 pictures and with the first taken in 2012.  That’s a lot of years and a lot of photos.  I’ve no idea what I will do once I decide to hang up my decorating hat.

Some of my most treasured photos have never made it to the blog or to Flickr.  These I will keep close to my heart. Just random thoughts.

Today I’m showcasing a new item by [ zerkalo ], which is absolutely beautiful piece of furniture.  The old chaise lounge has several texture options and is currently available at Kustom9.

Enjoy!

The story of a traveler

Good morning!  Today’s post is all about 8f8’s newest collection.  It’s a beautiful collection as usual with remarkable textures and details.  There is so much to this set in terms of colors, texture change for the leaves and animations.  You must visit to get the full appreciation.  Included in the scene are some other pieces from 8f8.

There is also a story that comes with this set… taken from creators Flickr.

The Story

This is a story of one traveler. He travels from one place to another. He does not have much to offer, just a humble old worn out suitcase of unknown content but of great value only known to him. He chooses many different directions as he is very curious by nature no matter how much they scare him. He stumbles a lot on the way, falls too and his knees feel the weight of all experiences he carries with him. Yet he continues going forward discovering all life offers, around him and within him. More often than not he encounters seemingly empty spaces, places left behind, abandoned or perhaps just misunderstood, to most of no value. But not to him. Those are his precious moments when his eyes are able to catch shy beauty that found a place to grow where there only seems to be decay. Little beauty emerging where to an untrained eye only seems to be waste, waste of space, waste of time, waste of effort… He recognizes such places, he knows them very well as he has spent many years living them. So he stops and reaches out.

This is a story of one traveler. This is a story of someone who looks for places that struggle, sees beauty in these seemingly forgotten, abandoned souls and offers them a mirror to show them their own inner growing beauty he seeks and loves so deeply.

This is a story of me and … you.

The Collection

Nine different items, one 8f8 Group Gift and BONUS Old Colors for the phone booth if you go for the whole collection.  You can see it displayed at Black Kite.

Time to enjoy the outdoors

Happy Friday!  It’s definitely that time of year to enjoy the outdoors and I’ve got just the plan for you.  Take a bike ride and when you’ve had enough pedaling stop to rest and enjoy a picnic.

Freshly squeezed

Most of you know that Flickr has been down the last 24 hours due to some maintenance.  It’s back up for some and others not quite yet.  It came up for me and then went down ago.  I’m posting anyway.

Last night while I was doing this scene, it made me realize how dependent I really am on Flickr for finding items in my inventory.  Whenever I can’t recall a name of a particular item I usually go to the creators page or my own and scroll through pictures to find the item name.  Or when I’m looking for a particular type of plant or furniture I can scroll through a home and garden group to find something new or remember an item I have and forgotten about.

I was trying to find this stove that is pictured by Apple Fall.  I searched with words like stove, antique, range and the creators name.   I found plenty, just not this one.  I never would have guessed that the stove would be called a cooker.

I missed you Flickr.

Today I’m showcasing a new set by Contrast at Shiny Shabby. The set made up of table, chairs and vase with cotton is available in other colors.  I’ve used the old enamelware set by InsurreKtion to go with my scene.

I hope you enjoy.
