Christmas Sparkles

Christmas Sparkles

Not wanting to change my whole region which is set in a Spring season, I decided to make a skybox for our winter celebrations this year.  This is our dining area and I plan having some friends and family over on a few occasions to celebrate this holiday season. We'll have to make space for [...]

Life is a Journey

Life is a Journey

The sign on the side of one of these says "Life is a Journey" and the older you get the more that phrase rings true. In my opinion anyways. I had been on one journey and then my path changed and now I am on another journey. It's just the start and I've barely set [...]

In Repose

In Repose

Happy Sunday! I was thinking today about what Sunday's used to be like when I was a child. Shops didn't open at all on Sunday's then and the pubs opened for a couple of hours at lunchtime and then closed again until later in the evening. It was housework day in our home too. We [...]

Every Time We Say Goodbye

Every Time We Say Goodbye

When you're near There's such an air of spring about it I can hear a lark somewhere Begin to sing about it There's no love song finer But how strange the change From major to minor Ev'ry time we say goodbye   Credits: Avatar: *Head - LeLutka - EVO X  Avalon *Face Skin   - Glam [...]

The Secret Ingredient

The Secret Ingredient

I may be a little bias. Full disclosure, I work for The Arcade and Blogger and Sponsor Manager but even with that aside I have to say the upcoming round, that opens tomorrow, is one of the best I've seen! This is particularly the case if you are a decor nut like me. Even more [...]

Always Believe in Your Soul

Always Believe in Your Soul

Well, I had a pretty productive Sunday and got the chance to do some therapeutic decorating and photo taking. I am still working out the new computer and graphics feel. I don't have all the same actions and presets set up that I had previously but I am sure I will get there. I love [...]

Feels Like Heaven

Feels Like Heaven

I've only watched the news twice this weekend and feel so much better for cutting back. It's given me time to think about other things. I've finished a book I have wanting to finish for a long time,  and have cleaned my kitchen from top to bottom. I've also had time to work on some [...]

The Tale of the Weary Gardener

The Tale of the Weary Gardener

Normally I'd be looking forward to opening a bottle of wine tonight and relaxing a little. However I'm on a course of strong antibiotics for a tooth infection and I'm under strict rules not to drink. I work with doctors all day and when one of them asked how my tooth was on Monday, as I [...]

At the End of the Garden

At the End of the Garden

Good morning and Happy Friday. Often it's the favourite day of the week but that's often because it's the last day of the working week. With more and more of us moving to flexible working patterns and working in service industries where there is no such thing as a 9-5 I wonder if we'll gradually [...]
