Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died. Steven Wright

In the last few months, I’ve been using tarot cards as inspiration for my photos. So when  I made my second life Halloween inspired land… I knew that a table with tarot cards was a requirement. It has come full circle with this latest picture.
 It’s such a joy to wrap up my last series of photos up with this picture. I’m a bit of a tarot card reader. It’s something that I do for friends and family. So I wanted to take that real life interest and let that be my muse. I really love this outfit. I didn’t win this wonderful dress by candy doll at the Epiphany, but I did buy it from the marketplace. However, I did win the gorgeous wings from Candy doll’s set at the epiphany. I just had to have the dress, so I bought it. Moving right along, Zenith makes really gorgeous masks, available at Collabor88. I always get a little excited seeing a mask made by them. I know it will be stunning. When I saw this dress, I knew right away that it would pair nicely with this mask. The hair is by exile and is also available at collabor88. It’s a really great style and just down right cute. Alisha is wearing the rare hat from shadenfreude available at the Arcade. The dress and stockings are from canimal, Her hair is from doux.
Finally, a lot of the decor came from Collabor88. UnKindness created this really great furniture set to include the cabinets, books, and moon statue. The candy on the floor is from the wonderful ++half deer+…. a creator that makes the cutest things. My wallet is always handed over to this company, happily might I add. All the other items will be listed in the credits section, down below.
I know this blog post is a little short. This week has not been kind to me. Normally, I would write up a long blog post, but I need to take care of myself a bit today. But don’t you fret….. I’ll be back to semi normal in a bit.
As always, be kind to one another,
Cheers,
Violet XOXO

Dancing In the Moonlight

The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness. Dalai Lama

In the last month, I’ve had nothing but appreciation for the people around me in both worlds. A friend who gives me more time for things inworld, when pain rules the day. A friend that remembers my birthday and does something sweet for me out of the blue inworld. She selflessly gave a gift to a stranger. A friend who dances with me virtually, which brings a smile to my face. Or even a special person that makes me laugh on the hardest of days. Those people … I may not know everything about them and it’s okay not to know everything about them. It’s the kindness in them that I see. I can see their heart and spirit in their being, for me that’s a huge deal. Healing isn’t just medications and physical therapy. Healing can be how we treat one another in times that are hard physically, emotionally, or financially. A smile and helping hand can do so much for someone. Real life brings pain and truly hard days. Grueling days are ahead of me. I will be tested, but it’s nice to log into a space where my spirit is lifted. And this is a thank you and a word of appreciation for all that you do for this stranger. I wouldn’t know what I would do with out you all.
In the spirit of appreciation, I want to share another message. I’ve heard lots of people who don’t give themselves enough credit, thinking they are important. That’s the thing about life, you are important. When you help someone in even the smallest way (opening a door for someone for example), you are important. Your spirit, laughter, friendship, kindness are all important to the world. A person doesn’t have to be bigger than life to be important. Even in a virtual space,, you’re important to others. And also, people will make mistakes, but people are not defined by their mistakes. It’s more important what you do after the mistake was made. We are all on a journey in this life and there will be speed bumps. It’s learning how to ride over them that matters most, and appreciating the people who help you get over those little road blocks.
And one more thing before diving into this month’s shopping. I heard a quote that really hit a chord with me. If you worry about all the bad things, you deny yourself the ability to enjoy all the good things. You miss out on the good that happens around you. It’s really true. Of course, there are going to be bad, awful, and horrible days, but we have to notice the good that surrounds us. For me, it’s the kindness that others have shown me in the past month. My heart would not be as full without you. So thank you to all the friends inworld who have shown me kindness, when I needed it most. ♥
Okay, now I can talk about the fun stuff. Pose Fair is still going on, so if you haven’t picked up some great poses, please head over there. A great friend and creative pose maker created this pose called Thrills pose pack. It’s by Cuca Design. The creator is a dear friend of mine. She just happens to be a really great pose creator. I hope you enjoy her poses, just as much as I do. Next we have my top from Mossu, which I love and adore. It pairs beautifully with the skirt from The Secret Store. The top and skirt are both available at Collabor88. You will have to hurry though, since there’s not much time left. Finally, my boots are a new marketplace release from Utopia@Design. I am a little obsessed with her boots. I can’t lie. I really recommend this designer. The attention to detail is fabulous. The building in the picture is by Nomad and I really really really like this rotunda. It’s probably going to stay up awhile on my land. It was the perfect addition to my creepy graveyard. Finally, lets talk hair, I absolutely love this hair by besom and it’s available at kustom9. I can’t recommend these events enough. I adore them.
I hope you enjoy the spooky events across the grid and the fantastic shopping. So bring a friend and enjoy the shopping and maybe stop by Ironwood Hills for a spooky hunt.
As always, be kind to one another.
Cheers, Violet.

Wheel of Fortune

 

 

“No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home.”

 

“No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home.”

So I’ve been feeling a little lost lately. It’s easy to feel like that, when so many things change all at once. It led me to the Wheel of Fortune card in the tarot deck. Feeling lost leads to finding yourself sometimes. So it’s whatever is in your cards in the future. Fate plays a hand in your wheel of fortune. Which leads me to my next topic…. getting caught up with my blog… It was all fate…

Playing catch up with blogging and trying to heal isn’t always the easiest. And I know eventually, I will be all caught up. But for now, I have to apologize for this post being a little late. I am very sorry. BUT … we must continue on and discuss shopping.

This month’s round of Uber is INSANE. I bought a lot of things from uber. My dress, shoes, and coat rack are all available at this event. Vinyl created this wonderful whimsical dress. Eudora3D made my wonderful shoes. Finally, dust bunny created this fantastic coat rack. I am really smitten with these items. I think many others will be too. When I put them all together, I could feel the crisp air floating around me. I knew fall was literally at my door step.

BUT, I didn’t just feel the love of fall at Uber. I also felt it at Hair Fair. Eliavah created this wonderful ponytail with tendrils hanging down on one side of the head. This hair does include versions with the tendrils down the left or right side. This hair makes me want to grab a hot chocolate and sit wrapped in a blanket on the porch. Finally, the pumpkin sign and barrels came from brocante. It was available for 50L. Unfortunately, it is available, but at full price.

When I created this picture, I had every intention of blogging it on Friday, but my health prevented me from blogging this photo. Again, I am sorry this photo is a little late. I will say that all the fall creations have me excited for the seasons changing. I hope you get in the spirit of fall and visit Hair Fair–and Uber. Okay my lovely followers, I must end this blog a little short. I am extremely tired, but thank you for taking a minute to read my blog. If you like any of these items, please check out my credits down below.

As always, be kind to one another.

 

Cheers,

Violet xoxo
