#54 Anyone for breakfast?

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”
A.A. Milne

Breakfast at Regal 1

What a treat! – to find fairies have set up a mysterious and beautiful breakfast is my idea of a great morning. With a little bit of peering under cups and chairs – and yes – inside the flower vase – I discovered that the whole lot come from by Apple Fall  BUT – they are all in a GACHA. I am not fond of gatchas – because I hate ending up with 7 chairs and no croissant. Blessings on whomsoever took the time and effort to collect this lot so that I can enjoy ‘breakfast at Tiffany’s’ in such style.

Breakfast at Regal 2

My fresh summery outfit is mostly from past SL events – and fortunately available now at the mainstores of KITJA and ::HH:: Hucci.

#46 Retro Love

Those who have never known the deep intimacy and the intense companionship of mutual love have missed the best thing that life has to give.
Bertrand Russell

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?  I never did …until I met my love in Second Life. Every year we take a photo for Valentine’s remembrance. This year I am a little early because I found this lovely pose at Image Essentials  – RETRO LOVE – it has the feel of nostalgia for me.

#39 It’s Cold Outside

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.”

Alfred Wainwright

My ‘go to’ outfit for the ice and snow around Second Life is a combination of a big coldLogic knitted jumper worn over Warm Clarity’s thermals – with my feet tucked in to Ava Kunglers Blanka boots.

#19 Feeling pink

This color represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing.

A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping it to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits.

#14 Our castle in the air

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.

Now put the foundations under them.                                                                              Henry David Thoreau

does this count?

These huge rocks are only 1 prim each, and they can be stretched and squished so they never need to look the same – so watch this space … they may breed

 

Castle in the air - 2

Our castle has grown over 5 years from parts of R.H.Engel’s build with various modifications – decks,  towers, windows in/windows out and variations of brick, wood and metal. We have changed how we use it too- from being our whole home and entertainment area with my photo studio to being our ‘private’ rooms. Currently it is pretty much empty – just the photos are up and the cats are loving the space (once I set the range so they stopped falling through space and washing up on the sea floor!)

Castle in the air - 4

 

Basil, Lavender, Puss and Boots – enjoying the art of the ‘afternoon nap’.  Puss and Boots were my original pair, and Basil & Lavender are rescue cats. One of the upgrades since they came to live with me is the option to change them from breeding pairs to perma-pets. I love this option and gradually they will all be perma-pets as the $L allow. The operation is not cheap.  Another recent upgrade is the ‘walk’  – so now as well as carrying your KittyKat you can have them follow along behind. Keeping pets in SL is a great option either for people like me who always have RL pets, or for people who can not have pets in RL.

Kohn has a shark, dolphins, seagulls and a crocodile!

 

Castle in the air - 5

 

Princess is a teacup perma-pet, and she joined the others quite by accident – but now there are enough!
