For my project "Discarted", I cut the botton of an old pair of jeans and transformed it into a decorative sleeve. I put a bright pink ribbon into the holes, to decorate it more.

The hardest thing about this weeks challenge was deciding which textures to choose! In the end, as I lean towards pretty things, I chose the handmade gift wrap and part of the ribbon used to decorate a gift. They had a lot more texture than I could see with my eye alone!!

HMM and thank you to all who take the time to fav and comment :))

After a morning decorating the front bedroom , I was allowed out for good behaviour, so I thought I'd try out my new camera. The mornings grey clouds had broken up to reveal ribbons of blue sly, and an incoming tide with good surf ensured reflections were back on the menu. The gift and the curse by the Sand Band, is fine in so many ways, and obviously the Sand Band is perfect .

Hubby & I decorated this one together, this is pretty much what happens when two hoarders unite lol. <3

Well you might think this a mandarin or an orange but .......... my daughter, a university student, very fond of baking, made this last Christmas. A little chocolate filled marzipan candy decorated with leaves from physalis (also called ground cherry / cape gooseberry) and beautifully wrapped in a transparent packing with a ribbon and a small note saying Merry Christmas Dad :)) I saved her beautiful present till January 7 this year because we had to head for our holiday home in Finland to celebrate our Christmas there. Just before enjoying this sweet candy with a strong Espresso I thought why not to take a picture of this......

Collection Couture Gatherers/WAR and Peace.

  

Superdoll continued to create one of a kind dolls using French Resin. This was the material used for the dolls comprising the next large, publicly displayed OOAK collection, known as Couture Gatherers or WAR. The theme of the collection was a world devastated by a nuclear holocaust. A band of survivors travels the planet searching out precious scraps of couture. The dolls' heads were bare save for a few wisps of hair at the nape and their foreheads were decorated with silver leaf. The fabrics are all couture quality, mostly beaded and embroidered laces enhanced with other materials and had strongly colored linings. Each doll has a long piece of silk ribbon in a particular color as part of her costume. A triangular design motif ran throughout the collection particularly in the shapes of the garments. All of the dolls wore identical clear Perspex shoes with green linings.

... a happy birthday to my friend Jim (Boomer-23) who by now is probably standing staring at a lighthouse on the coast of Maine. Hope you bundled up, Jim =)

We took about 4.5 hour to travel down this Lijiang River or Li River from Guiling to Yangshuo (83km), consider one of the most popular and picturesque scenic spots in China.

 

Along the banks are landscape decorated with startling hills, steep cliffs, fantastic caves and farming villages, and is lined with bamboo groves. In a Chinese poem it is written: "The river is a green silk ribbon, and the hills are jade hairpins"

  

I really needed to upload this shot...

The weather today in fact is cold, windy, rainy and foggy a rare combination of events for our usually "Sunny Sicily". Weather forecasts actually show that in a couple of days should snow quite a bit....

Only two days ago instead was like in this capture! Go figure.....

  

Through my friend Iris (eyewrisz) words:

 

if this is feeling blue

i want to feel it too

color is astounding on petal ribbons all curled

a welcome sight in this complicated world

 

Iris, the day that you'll get bored and won't write these little gems for my shots anymore, I think I'll stop posting.....You are way too good with me!

 

I would love if you friends could pay a visit to my blogs:

Another outtake from last year's 365- this is a little tree we have at work that we decorate for the changing holidays. Much nicer on black.

 

Twilight. Kytelers pub in Kilkenny, rural Ireland. There was time left on this midsummer evening for a pint. I rested my camera case on the bar stool, and thought silently: "which beer to try?"

 

A pint appeared on its own, like a sunrise. It was Bulmer's vintage cider, bought by a man next to me. Savoring the cider, I asked my host, who was tapping his left foot in time with the music, about the band. “Do you not know The Briars? Sufferin’ ducks!” he said, astonished, finishing his beer with one hand and loosening a button on his worn woolen jacket with the other. My fellow beer taster at the bar grinned from under his dark tweed cap, telling me the band was famous in Kilkenny for “craic.” That’s right, craic. After I bought him a bitter, he told me that craic was a patter of lighthearted jokes told in between songs.

 

When I wondered aloud if he meant crack, like crack a joke, he brightened and said “Yah . . .. Only in Kilkenny, we say craic.” He was right. The Briars’ jests put their audience in a good mood with their stage mischief.

 

On their break, this patter segued onto the street outside Kytelers. As three of the band members lit their smokes, they joked about their set, and asked me for my take on Kilkenny. Then they shared some tips about places to visit in Ireland, with a “must see” stop at Newgrange, north of Dublin.

Walking through Kilkenny, I’d seen Kytelers pub across the Noir River on the town’s main street. The pub’s placard read “hot food served all day,” and showed the familiar of a witch, a blue cat. Next to it, a small notice claimed that Dame Alice le Kyteler was the first owner of the property. Dame Kyteler was accused of witchcraft in 1324, after her first 3 husbands died. She then had the honor of becoming the first and only witch burned at the stake in Ireland. Reading about witch burning gave me a wicked thirst, and The Briars were back on. Time for more music.

 

As the band started their second set, the place filled up, and the words to unforgotten rhymes floated through the smoky air. Firelight thrown by an open stone hearth glimmered off of unplayable tubas, fiddles and trumpets nailed to the oak beams. These beams were held by walls made from liscannor stone, cleft from the Moher Cliffs in western Ireland. Our bartender moved gracefully like a clog dancer as he roamed the ship-sized bar serving cider, ale and lager. Perhaps the Irish poet, John Boland, had Kytelers in mind when he penned that “the old, dimly lit bars in which, over a pint, one ruminated on the meaning of a life, are still a dominant feature of rural Ireland.” The scents of hot food and beer were cozy . . . it seemed I was in the living room of an dear old friend.

 

With a rich visual history decorating the walls around me, I thought of that old expression: The traveller is to the tourist what a photograph is to a snapshot. Leaving tourist habits behind, I’d become a traveller, on country time. First I’d seen the pub, next it was off to the countryside.

 

The next morning, cathedral bells rang. I had tasted the tunes in an Irish pub. Now, time for music of a different style. Having seen Saint Canice’s Cathedral from my lodging, I joined its packed 9 a.m. Sunday service to experience an ancient pipe organ, and a men's choir.

 

After the peaceful church service, the door to Saint Canice’s round tower was open to visitors. In the doorway of this eighth-century, 108-foot tower, its keeper told me that the tower builders made the ascending stone steps in a clockwise spiral, so that from inside, a right-handed villager defending the riches stored there could easily strike downwards. A Viking invader, climbing up clockwise, would be forced to use his weaker left hand. Atop the round tower, gusts from a strong breeze buffeted the stones. Below, an impossibly green lawn skirted the cathedral. A man mowing this lawn threaded his way between the high crosses of the church cemetery. His labors wafted the fragrance of fresh-cut grass skyward. I climbed down the tower stairs. The cemetery was quiet, although the graves seemed to speak and burial markers whispered to me.With angled sunlight softening the edges of the lichen-covered grave markers, the orange growth seemed to glow against the grey stones, and I photographed the Kilkenny cemetery into the gloaming.

 

“No visitor to Kilkenny would skip seeing a hurling match!” my bar mate had insisted. A traditional Gaelic game, hurling is played with sticks and a hard ball. Like field hockey, the 3-foot long stick is curved. This axe-shaped oak, a “hurley”, is used to bat the ball either into the goal for 3 points, or between the crossbars for one point. Baseball-sized and just as hard, the white ball is called a “sliotar.”In hurling, a team of 15 players competes on the field without helmets or gloves. Players injured their fingers catching the sliotar because they often got hit by an opponent’s stick. Since a skilled player can whack the sliotar at 90 mph, when a stick hits a bare body part, blood can be shed. I saw four hand injuries in one 30-minute half.

 

Hurling is war.

 

Fortunately, my mid-field seat at the town’s hurling arena let me rub elbows with fans and have a Guinness or two. As the Kilkenny fans cheered their team to a win, I made portraits of the Irish faces sitting nearby. The town folk again made me feel at home with their friendliness. When I thought I may have asked too many questions during the game, my fellow fan said “Too many questions? Nonsense! Let me tell you about the point scoring...”.The next day at the bus station, on the route to Newgrange, I met a school hurling team. Hefting their hurleys, they seemed pleased to pose for a group portrait before their match in Dublin. It was almost time to leave Kilkenny.

 

It was late. By now my camera needed a resting place on a bar stool somewhere, as its memory card was full of portraits from rural Ireland. A dusky thirst came on. There was time for one last toast to friends in a dim, cozy pub, in the heart of old Ireland.

Red box

 

Inside this little red box is a small and very precious porcelain fairy...a wonderful little keepsake. SEE THE FAIRY IN THE FIRST COMMENT BOX.

 

This little fairy (3" tall) was made by my very dear friend Glad who is sadly no longer with us. This special fairy always has pride of place on our Christmas tree.

 

Glad used to teach the art of producing and decorating porcelain dolls, she used to call her pupils her 'dolly ladies'. It must have been a fantastic class to attend because Glad was so full of fun, such a jolly lady and a lover of art...all 4ft 11 inches of her!

Punalu‘u, O‘ahu.

 

On one of my drives along the windward-side of the island, I spotted this colorful sight right along side the road and near the beach.

 

Someone had neatly trimmed and decorated an ironwood tree (Casuarina equisetifolia) with colored ribbons and small toys. At the base of the tree was a small basket of yellow plastic flowers.

 

I'm not sure if this is simply someone's Christmas decorations or possibly a roadside memorial.

 

I've notice there are several memorials in this stretch of highway. Here is another down the road near Hau‘ula. Each one is unique and makes me wonder about an untold story.

Dear Sponsors, Followers & Friends -

I want to apologize for my recent delay in blogging, I have been dealing with some RL health issues off and on for the past year, which I wanted to keep private.

For the most part things are finally getting better but I recently had to have a procedure and the recovery time was longer than I expected so I was unable to login or blog.

 

At this time I've decided to focus more on quality of my blog posts rather than quantity. When I first started blogging I only did 1-3 posts a week so that I could focus on putting my best efforts and work out there.

Over the last 3 years I've gained so many amazing sponsors and I'm always scared to let someone down so I was literally doing nothing but blogging. I enjoyed this but sometimes I felt I wasn't doing my very best, so at this time I will go back to doing 1-3 posts a week and making sure they are my very best.

I always do better when I blog out of inspiration rather than obligation, that's what seems to make my creativity thrive the most.

I will of course completely understand if some of my sponsors decide to drop me, and I will also still continue to blog their items when I can.

I have never been a blogger for free items, I'm happy to buy them but more because I love it - this will never change! This will also give me time to focus on other projects that I've greatly missed...

 

I am planning to bring my wedding sim back sometime in the next couple of months, when time permits. Weddings were always my favorite thing to decorate and work on in SL, but it was honestly too much work for one person - while doing all the other various things that I do. I will be working alongside my husband and we're really excited for this upcoming new project. I will post more details about it once we get further along in the process.

 

Also, Marcus & I have decided to share a Flickr. We always do all of our projects and photos together and rather than showing everyone repeats - this made sense to us. We will both be contributing to this flickr as of now.

 

Sorry for the novel and I hope everyone is having a lovely week!!! <3

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

The women of Arles enjoy perpetuating the legend by carrying off their traditional dress

.

Daudet, Mistral, Léo Lelée, and other admirers gave life to the figure of this proud, gracious and elegant woman, of whom the Queen of Arles is a renewed incarnation.

 

The Arlesian traditional dress appeared at about the mid-18th century, born from a desire amongst the women of Arles to dress differently to other women. Arlesian traditional dress developed under the influence of Parisian fashion and the times: the droulet, Louis Philippe, Napoleon III costumes, not forgetting the mark made by Léo Lelée.

 

It took its final and purified, or modern form, at the end of the 19th century. Today, the costume is worn for festive occasions. The hairstyle using the famous ribbon appeared around 1835.

the Arlesienne women often wore elaborately tied ribbons in their hair, winding the wide, embroidered or patterned material around their hair to protect and decorate it.

 

Headwear was always worn and the hair pinned up. Not only did it keep the hair clean and tidy (there was no washing it every day), but it also was part of the woman’s modesty. The clothes and jewellery are part of a collection of Arlesienne costumes . They show the incredibly detailed and beautifully sewn and embroidered clothes once worn by the women who lived in the Arles region of the Midi.
