POE6 Post 51 Butterfly Effectz 1

 Horns are just so freaking versatile, like should any craft box be without them?

POE6 Post 51 Butterfly Effectz 2

I keep mine between the glitter and the finger paints.  It goes Glitter, Horns, Finger Paint, Feathers, Buttons … etc ….
You can put them on your car, on your fence posts, in the barn, the wall of your office  . . . or wear them on your head.  You can’t do that with glitter.  It would look ridiculous to have glitter on the barn, not to mention how nervous it makes the cows and then they don’t let down their milk … just not going to happen.
I have to ask you seriously … is there another single blog here in SL that is a source of such a varied and important list of topics?  I mean think of all the ways I bless your life with the little tidbits of “must have” info I share.  Now you know why the cows never produced as much milk when your grand dad wore that bra with sequins under his overalls.  Mystery solved.

POE6 Post 51 Butterfly Effectz 3

I paired my horns with LadyCatherine Fairey’s gown from Butterfly Effectz.  Wear it to the barn and the cows will be totally into anything.  Cows are big on horns.  You know what they say about big horns in the cow world.   What with their failing eyesight … wear the horn headpiece and the world becomes your dairy store oyster only not in the sea of course.  Trust me.  I know these things.

Ramses Meredith of Egoisme created this lovely imitation of a pepperminty candy cane for a dress for the season .. but I can tell you that licking it does not give you minty fresh breath.

POE6 Post 50 Angel Dessous,  Egoisme,  Immerse 2

Nando Korobase of Angel Dessous provides snowflakes and fur and sparkle and long gloves to put the magic into the night and sequins and ruffles from Lilly Juno of Immerse dance their way across your dreams.

I like to take a whole wardrobe when I go out so I can change costumes and play any role that happens to present itself.  I just think it makes the whole evening more fun and you can share your costumes!!

Ooyukichioo of IrodorI gifts us with this fabulous outfit that is absolutely gorgeous!  I feel like a painting when I walk around in it.

POE6 Post 49 IrodorI 2

I so want one in real life.  I want to calmly walk into the garden and make all the neighbours jealous.  I know they would be jealous because that is how it all goes down in my head and whatever my head wants, it just goes with.  I mean like the lack of participation from the outside world is irrelevant.  Facts are irrelevant  . . .

POE6 POST 47 Evolve 1

You should never assume that people aren’t paying attention.

POE6 POST 47 Evolve 2
I put on this beautiful gown from Reign Congrejo of Evolve and my mother in law passed by the computer and asked “Where is your girlie’s boyfriend?”
“What boyfriend?”
“The little guy with the ears?”
“That was an elf.”
“Looked more like a monkey to me.”
“Well yes, I was using an elf, and then a sock monkey elf, and then a guy .. it was just a kind of something to write about for all these POE posts.”
“I wasn’t judging you, each to their own.  Just because I would never date a sock, or an elf, doesn’t mean that you can’t.  I mean we don’t always have much choice do we?”
And she patted my arm and shuffled off to watch TV.
POE6 POST 47 Evolve 3
I heard her on the phone later telling my sister in law that I was dating a sock monkey but  . . . it didn’t work out.  She was trying to verify if that was some sign that I needed to be committed.

Ladies in white … I love starting with blank canvas and I always think white kinda disarms people and they let their guard down a bit.  I mean you can’t just misbehave in a vacuum .. where is the fun in that???
POE6 Post 46 1 Hundred, AlaFolie, Shiki, Aya 2
Sira Savira or 1Hundred, Pixivore Allen of AlaFolie and Shinichi Mathy of Shiki have all offered virginal deflectors for the holiday season.  Aya Mactavish gifted us with a cool butterfly typer that puts butterflies dancing all around you whenever you type.  I am thinking this would be so cool in real life.  Imagine having to deliver bad news to someone and as you speak there are butterflies everywhere to help soften the blow.  I mean Snow White was always pretty happy and she had butterflies around her all the time.  I think that is a given, have butterflies and everything seems better … although if you were in love with a caterpillar and then came to see them one day and they were gone with all their butterfly friends and left you without any word that would kinda suck.  THAT person would not probably appreciate a butterfly typer … but the rest will.

POE6 Post 34 DaneMarkZ 1

I like wandering around in the snow in my evening gowns because it works much better for your self esteem.  The thing is … if you have no friends, no life, no lover, no social life … the only reason that sucks is that other people know and they point at you when you go to Walmart and say things like “Look there is that loser again who has not friends, no live, no lover, no social life.”

POE6 Post 34 DaneMarkZ 2

The trick is to fool them.

So you get all dressed up in expensive gowns and get your hair done and stuff and you go out and you wander around in the snow.  People either think you are waiting for your lover for a romantic tryst or that you are a beautiful recluse and they should go home and write a novel like Wuthering Heights because they just saw you and they will never be able to get you out of their mind OR breathe again unless they either paint you or write a novel that will become a classic and be made into some kind of an HBO movie that everyone will rave about for years to come.

Thank heavens I had this dress from Hannah Daviau of DaneMarkZ!

POE6 Post 34 DaneMarkZ 3
I told the freaking Sock Monkey Elf poser to lose the hat and that if he even thought about standing next to me I would forgo turkey and have stuffed monkey for Christmas dinner.
I didn’t want anyone thinking he was my date … although .. compared to some of the options in SL … that might be a big improvement …
O.M.G!!!  Did I just type that out loud??????

POE 6 Post 16 Kawaii Dolls, Exquisite, TrueNorthDesigns, Jewelry by Jake 1

Catlyn Sahara of  Kawaii Dolls went pink for Christmas.  I love her.  I think red and green are so overdone – the whole world should be pink – ballet pink actually but I will accept any shade of pink.  I could be a Christmas tree in this dress with my head one giant angel star at the top. I think we should be Christmas trees more at Christmas time.  Everyone does angels and elves and Santa blah blah … let’s just be trees.   LOVE. IT.

POE 6 Post 16 Kawaii Dolls, Exquisite, TrueNorthDesigns, Jewelry by Jake 2

Jake Kearny of Jewlry by Jake came up with this lovely music box which I shrunk down for the purpose of the magical photography you are witnessing.

Dellybean North’s piano for TrueNorthDesigns is my second favourite colour – white AND this piano is magical.  I adore that is plays Christmas music and not just tinkle Christmas music like awesome Christmas music and there are all these options with the menu that I actually had to go and get a pocket protector I felt so geeky.

Mericatherine Quennell of Exquiste packed her little POE stocking so freaking full of jewellery that you will think you died and went to heaven.  She includes men and women stuff AND these three awesome proposal boxes that so inspired me I went right down to Noobyville and started asking people to marry me.  (I believe that sex should only happen AFTER you are married)

Oh ya, gifts and cards should go to the 8th floor of the hospital for Schmelf.  Turns out mom was right … you shouldn’t play around with the piano lid, slamming it and stuff … someone could get hurt, take a finger off or maybe half an elf … poor little bugger ….
These are real tears … ignore the onion smell … just a strange coincidence….

POE6 – Snowpaws

Not Being There

Not Being ThereHair: D!va, Daisy **Gacha Event** .

For my fathers funeral this Saturday we are allowed to say or write about an event in rememberance of him. My sister has thought of some really fun events in our life, but for the first time ever, the writer is mute. No Word and Peace, Draakje Dailey. In fact, I can’t think of a single remarkable event and I can’t figure out why. I reckon it’s likened to those times you think of something witty to say, after a person has walked away from you. But in the middle of the night, I did decide what I would write for the Reverend to read. And it’s right there in the title, I am going to write about his not being there. That is the greatest lesson my father taught me.

Not Being There

Dress: Snowpaws, Epais **Peace on Earth 6, item#036** .

You see, my father was a pediatrician. On Christmas mornings me, my sisters and my bother (yes, meant to spell it that way), weren’t allowed to peek to see if Santa had stopped by until my father was standing next to the tree taking pictures. Seems a practical matter, doesn’t it? But most Christmas mornings my father was at the hospital, so we would sit anxiously on the bottom step, waiting for my father to return home. Most children don’t really have a sense of real world focus, we tend to think about the world’s reflection of us, not about how we are seen in the world, or in other words, we oft believe the world revolves around our needs, not taking into consideration others. One Christmas, I think I was about six or so, it was an extra long wait stretching almost into the afternoon. Being selfish, and petulant at that age, I asked my mom why dad always had to go to the hospital on Christmas day. Hugging me close, she told me “Because sickness doesn’t take a holiday. And some children don’t get to wait on the bottom step of their home to see if Santa visited them.” I think I aged to adulthood that day, or at least got pretty close to it because I never looked at Christmas the same again.

The take from? Sometimes the best gift a parent can give a child is to not be there. It not only makes the parent a human, it teaches the child, though you love them dearly, no one can possibly be there for them every time they are needed. As for my dad? I can’t help but think he is in heaven surrounded with some of the children he has seen over the years. Some probably made it home for Christmas, perhaps some did not and as they laugh and celebrate this holiday, I hope he will look down fondly at me. as I sit patiently on the bottom step waiting for when I will see him again.

Schmelf told me there was a way that I could redeem myself and erase all the black marks against me for this year.  I asked how many could there be?  He pointed to a van parked down by the river that was filled to overflowing with black binders … all me … all bad …  I pretty much was done for this Christmas and every Christmas upcoming unless. . .
. . .I accepted him as my personal goodness trainer.
He performed a secret ceremony which I can’t tell you about but it involved gingerbread, eggnog, 3 reindeer, an extra big stocking and some equipment in Santa’s basement that was damn right scary.
This was my first “task/exercise” … tending the flocks by night.
POE6 Post 10  KMADD, Miamai, Bliensen+MaiTai, Zanze, Pelletteria Morrisey, HeretiCORE 2
Thank heavens that Dvorin Radek of HeretiCORE made this really cool shepherd’s staff thingy that has bells that sway and jingle when you walk.  A definite upgrade from the old standard Shepherd’s crook.  I also found some nifty star earrings from Plurabelle Laszlo of Bliensen + MaiTai and figured the Schmelf could find some teeny batteries and we could power those suckers up in case there was no star in the east or stars or lights or I just got scared and needed my mommy.
There are wolves out there you know.  They could get confused and forget they are supposed to be in the woods hunting Red Riding Hood.  And what if they were colour blind?  That is why I was ever so grateful for Maddox DuPont’s contribution from KMADD – with all that bling on the shirt, the sparkly eye stuff, the hair and muffs. . . . not to mention some kick ass, really pointed cowboy boots from Didi Morrisey of Pelletteria Morrisey.  No way could the wolf think I was LRRH.  I was more like “Tall Psychedelically Angelic Cowboy Pants.”
It is cold out there. Thank Heavens I had a scarf and ear muffs from Zzoie Zee of Zanze.  They come with a cool hud to change the textures. I also had some leggings from Monica Outlander of MiaMai.  Schmelf got a little testy waiting for me to decide which of the fabulous choices I was going to wear.  I mean I know they were just sheep and all but still, I wanted them to know I was fashionable.  I wanted them to like me.  I wanted them to think I was pretty.  Isn’t that what we all want?  Especially at Christmas time????  ISN’T THAT what life is all about PEOPLE?????
POE6 Post 10  KMADD, Miamai, Bliensen+MaiTai, Zanze, Pelletteria Morrisey, HeretiCORE 3
The Schmelf was not particularly impressed with my tending abilities.  Something about scattering the sheep everywhere and that it would take years to find them all.  How stupid is that not one of them was named “Fluffy” and that screaming that over and over just seemed to scare the shit out of them.
Sheep run funny.

POE6 Post 9 Deluxe Body Factory, Innuendo, HPMD 1

I took the Schmelf out into the wood to intro him to his cousin “stumpy” but he failed to see the humour in it.  And before you all go getting on me for making fun of the fact he is so small, you should hear what he says to me about being a giant.  And he never lets up on how come I don’t have bigger breasts and my ass is too flat and why don’t I show more cleavage.  Evidently his idea of a “good girl” and Santa’s are not exactly the same thing.

I am not sure which of the reindeer this one was.  Plantzer or Schmonner or Piston or something …I am not great with names.  Who can tell any of them apart?   I just called him “Fluffy” all day.

POE6 Post 9 Deluxe Body Factory, Innuendo, HPMD 2
Lutricia Roux of the Deluxe Body Factory has created an entire avatar with eyes and everything you will need, along with the outfit and a hud that links to explain all about the Swedish Christmas tradition of Lucia.  I thought that was a great share for the holiday season.
Sasaya Kayo of HPMD provided the stump and I much prefer its personality to the Schmelf.  It is way more fun and also can sing a whole lot better.
Ciccia Bergamasco of Innuendo provided the other dress in this post that includes the jewels worn.

I sort of thought we have the whole Snow White, Rose Red thing going on and so you know dwarves/elves … we would be in the same ball park.  Schmelf was really offended and asked me if he even looked like he “hi-hoed” it into work or hung out with someone called “Sneezy” or “Dopey.”

POE6 Post 9 Deluxe Body Factory, Innuendo, HPMD 3

You know those moments when you really have a smart ass answer and then you think maybe you should just keep your mouth shut?  I had one of those moments, thought better of it, and told him yes, I could see it.  He looked exactly like that kind of elf.

He asked me if I wanted an apple for dessert, said some old lady had given it to him ….
