A little Home for the Holidays

Good evening all, tonight's presentation is all about home decor. While cleaning my inventory I came across several  cute pieces of home furnishing I thought would be nice to share with all of you all.


I recieved a sneak peek pack from Potpourri Designs of the neat items they have created for the Thames River Frost Fair which runs November 28 - December 28. There will also be a Gacha area at the Fair.  In the photo I have featured the Sugarplum Chaise Lounge and Silver Snowflake in Silver & White frame. Their Gacha items are the Snow Covered Tree in Silver Pot, Winter Blue Tree Rug, Winter Blue & Elm Straightback Chair, Winter Blue &  Iced Chrome &  Glass Coffee Table, Taupe Tile Wall Fireplace and the skybox - Winter Day Simple. The skybox is pretty cool it only has a land impact of 5 with a 20x20 footprint. It has a wintery snowy scene outside of the large windows. 


Since the holidays is coming up, it's important to have good finger foods on hand. (See what I did there?) CIRCA Living  has created some amazing goodies for the Thrift Shop 7.0, which runs till November 30th. Each of the new food giver items, offer single or multiple flavors to your guests upon one touch at random. The food items to hold have eating animations included (so no worries on standing like a statue). These are a great idea for seasonal get-togethers and party setups for friends, family and guests. All new exclusives & previous items shown at their booth are 50% off during the event.


The next items I would like to share is by Heart Homes. It is their Fall into bliss living room set. Heart Homes has some really great complete living room sets at affordable prices. The seating comes with a lot of animations and props. The cute foxes sitting on the couch and chair are exclusive GATCHA Items for by Serenity Style for The Thrift Shop 7.0 ( 9 to 30 November). The sky box is The Stockholm Attic by Barnesworth Anubis.The decorations on the shelf are all parts of the sky box. The  Old hanging Retro Lamp  is by Serenity Style. It was an exclusive item for the Monster Mash event held at The G-Spot on Nov 1st.


Serenity Style also hav some really cute decorative items that can be used across the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. The  Ellete Elf  and the Sense of Fall center piece. Both are adorable, perfect for decorating any shelf or even by the front door. The Fantasy Room event runs till November 25th.


For the 2014 Cirque de Seraphim, which began Nov 6th, %Percent  created six wonderful items. My favorite are featured above, the Circus light  and Rita's Burlesque chair in red. All exclusive items are 50% donation to the ASPCA, The items are inspired by the bearded lady of the circus.  I love the bearded lady! You have from now until the 26th of November to go see all the goodies.


I found this really cute Victorian Dressing Table and Midsummer Night's Chandelier by Ravenghost at Room69. When you sit at the table your profile picture appears in the place of the mirror. It's a pretty neat trick for a mirror.The style and design are all high quality and very elegant. I am sure you will see it in more of my photos in the future.


For the Dirty Turkey Hunt, RnB Designs created the Alchemist Low table. It comes with a skull candle, book, small box, and rug. For the Brother's Grimm Hunt, which runs till Nov 30, Potpourri Designs created several amazing exclusive items: The Evil Queen's Jars of Wicked Ingredients, the Happily Ever After and Once Upon A Time Rustic Chairs.  


Another interesting piece I received was from Lantian Flox. It is a Smashable Pot. The style I am showing is the Green Ethnic Amphora. The pot comes with a stick and if you hold down your left button and move with your arrow keys you hit the pot till it shatters. This is an amazing stress reliever. I think I did it about fifty times till Mel finally asked me what was my deal. hehehe...I won't ever tell him. I imagine you could run over the pot and smash it too.


While wandering around looking for interesting designers I came across LIVID's Blood Drop Hanging Chair.It's a free group gift. It comes with four animations loaded. It was pretty darn cool, all of you who like the darker side should check it out.

A Tattered Page: Elizabeth

Tonight's presentation brings you the third installment featuring A Tattered Page, a new Second Life event. The event is quarterly and the theme is based on a book. A real book...not a movie! The book used for inspiration the first round is Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley. In order to participate in this event, everyone involved had to read the story and interpret it with their designs/blog posts.The exclusive items designed by the participating designers will be available at their stores between November 7th - 30th.


In my last two posts I featured select quotes and images featuring Dr. Frankenstein and his Creation. Tonight I would like to introduce you to Dr. Frankenstein's love, Elizabeth. She is character that shapes much of how the story unfolds through her evolving relationship with Dr. Frankenstein throughout the length of their lives. For a character so instrumental to the story, we never really get to know her intimately like we do Dr. Frankenstein and his Creation. She persists to be a pristine idea of the perfect woman through out the tale.



"[Elizabeth] was thin and very fair. Her hair was the brightest living gold, ... seemed to set a crown of distinction on her head. Her brow was clear and ample, her blue eyes cloudless, and her lips and the moulding of her face so expressive of sensibility and sweetness that none could behold her without looking on her as of a distinct species, a being heaven-sent, and bearing a celestial stamp in all her features" (Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, Chapter 1)


"Everyone loved Elizabeth. The passionate and almost reverential attachment with which all regarded her became, while I shared it, my pride and my delight. On the evening previous to her being brought to my home, my mother had said playfully, "I have a pretty present for my Victor-- tomorrow he shall have it.'... "


" And when, on the morrow, she presented Elizabeth to me as her promised gift, I, with childish seriousness, interpreted her words literally and looked upon Elizabeth as mine--mine to protect, love, and cherish. All praises bestowed on her I received as made to a possession of my own. We called each other familiarly by the name of cousin. No word, no expression could body forth the kind of relation in which she stood to me--my more than sister, since till death she was to be mine only."



"Last Thursday (May 7th), I, my niece, and your two brothers, went to walk in Plainpalais. The evening was warm and serene, and we prolonged our walk farther than usual. It was already dusk before we thought of returning; and then we discovered that William and Ernest, who had gone on before, were not to be found. We accordingly rested on a seat until they should return. Presently Ernest came, and enquired if we had seen his brother; he said, that he had been playing with him, that William had run away to hide himself, and that he vainly sought for him, and afterwards waited for a long time, but that he did not return." 


"This account rather alarmed us, and we continued to search for him until night fell, when Elizabeth conjectured that he might have returned to the house. He was not there. We returned again, with torches; for I could not rest, when I thought that my sweet boy had lost himself, and was exposed to all the damps and dews of night; Elizabeth also suffered extreme anguish. About five in the morning I discovered my lovely boy, whom the night before I had seen blooming and active in health, stretched on the grass livid and motionless; the print of the murderer's finger was on his neck."


"He was conveyed home, and the anguish that was visible in my countenance betrayed the secret to Elizabeth. She was very earnest to see the corpse. At first I attempted to prevent her; but she persisted, and entering the room where it lay, hastily examined the neck of the victim, and clasping her hands exclaimed, 'O God! I have murdered my darling child!'..." (Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, Chapter 7)



"Explanation! You may possibly say, What can Elizabeth have to explain? If you really say this, my questions are answered and all my doubts satisfied. But you are distant from me, and it is possible that you may dread and yet be pleased with this explanation; and in a probability of this being the case, I dare not any longer postpone writing what, during your absence, I have often wished to express to you but have never had the courage to begin."


"You well know, Victor, that our union had been the favourite plan of your parents ever since our infancy. We were told this when young, and taught to look forward to it as an event that would certainly take place. We were affectionate playfellows during childhood, and, I believe, dear and valued friends to one another as we grew older. But as brother and sister often entertain a lively affection towards each other without desiring a more intimate union, may not such also be our case? Tell me, dearest Victor. Answer me, I conjure you by our mutual happiness, with simple truth-- Do you not love another?"


"In this state of mind I wrote to Elizabeth. My letter was calm and affectionate. 'I fear, my beloved girl,' I said, 'little happiness remains for us on earth; yet all that I may one day enjoy is centred in you. Chase away your idle fears; to you alone do I consecrate my life and my endeavours for contentment.' ...  The sweet girl welcomed me with warm affection, yet tears were in her eyes ...." (Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, Chapter 22)
