~Snowy Evening~

I was born and raised in New England, I love lobster, chowder, the beauty of the changing seasons and the small towns of coastal Maine.  My residence of the past four years is in a city situated in the northwest corner of South Carolina.  Not only am I terribly homesick for the coast of Maine…I am also very much missing the snow.  As I sit by the open window, with the temperature nearly 70,  all I can think about is taking a lovely walk in the evening; with snow softly falling around me.
~Snowy Evening~

Come September, I shall be moving even further from my beloved Maine.  My husband and I will be traveling back to Tennessee; to be closer to our family.  So, for now, my longing to take a walk through the snow at twilight is only a click away…on the many beautifully landscaped sims of SL.  Tonight, I strolled around the gorgeous sims of Winterfell.  An enchanting place to wander and enjoy quiet reflection.

I leave you with the words of the inimitable Robert Frost.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Shhhhhhhh…I’ve got a secret fetish…
Well, not so secret really…anyone who knows me knows how much I love Pin-Up art.  I grew up loving black and white movies, jazz, old magazines and pin-up art.  So, I get very excited when I come across a creator in SL who enjoys designing vintage and pin-up clothing and accessories.

Last summer I was searching for a mesh bikini and stumbled across an adorable one at this store, on the marketplace, called Etchaflesh.  I liked the bikini so much, I wrote a review about it.  Several days later, I received a special edition corset, as a thank you for the review…and I was officially hooked on Shaodie’s designs.  She manages to fuse goth, pin-up and a bit of rockabilly into her own unique interpretations.  One of the things I love about her work is that she doesn’t overlook the little details that make clothing standout; like the corset lacing on the back of this high-waisted pin-up skirt..  I like the dark edge to her designs, but then she also has some really gorgeous pink corsets; there is something for everyone.

I decided to pair the skirt with back-seam stockings and top from a 50’s Tintable set that I purchased from Reasonable Desires…a few years ago. The oh-so-fantastic pin-up Jean hair from .:EMO-tions:., and the Coqueta Doll (pink/black) platforms from KIKI Designs. Finishing touches…Severine Earrings from Zibska, Prim eyeliner from LpD and mesh hands from SLink.
