A winter wonderland


Featuring Iconic in this post with their new Winter Market Gacha at The Chapter Four. There are 14 commons and 2 rares in the set.  The market stand that’s in both a winter and snowy comes with 3 texture option change on the wood and 8 different board messages.  The rares comes in two versions snowy and regular.


These last two pictures are close up of some of the items, but to see the whole set in its entirely you can see it here.  Those milk and donuts make me want to go out and get some Krispy Kreme ones.


In the first picture I was using the snowy carousel and this last one shows the regular.

I will always remember you

Circa 09

The OMGacha started January 10th and will end in a few days on January 24th. One of the gacha sets that you can find there is from [CIRCA], the “Winter Solstice.” The pieces that I am showing do not make up the whole set, just a sampling and are detailed below.

I’m also showing the curves shelf by Dysfunctional Designs, which I modified by sizing it down to sit atop the cabinet there against the wall.  They are texture based and come in different sizes.

Last week two well known people in the entertainment industry have passed and a couple of creators have made a gift in tribute to each.  The first is the Always Deer Hanging Art made my unKindness in memory of Alan Rickman. While I am familiar with several of his movies, the one I remember him most was from the holiday move “Love Actually,” which I really enjoyed.

The other tribute is to David Bowie, who is known as one of the most influential musicians of his era.  MLE, who makes wine bottles for almost every occasion at a very reasonable price, made this wine set as a gift in tribute to the musician.  I received mine directly, as I must have subscribed or purchased something at one point.  I thought it was a nice tribute and displayed it with this scene as well.

The years gone by.

The years gone by 001-1

Sometimes I long for what is familiar.  I remember visiting my paternal grandmother’s wooden frame home back when I was a child.  They lived in a small town in Washington state, a population that at the 2010 census was just under 11,000.  My grandmother was one of those stern, independent maternal types, who was also a bit of a hell raiser too.  She loved antiques and her home was filled in every corner with furniture and decorative pieces that sat atop these lace dollies.   I remember antique curios full of china, colorful glass ornaments and vases and everything of value to her.  It wasn’t a big house by today’s standards, but it was big in my eyes then and it had character.   One of the fondest memories that me and my older siblings have is that she always sent us care packages full of clothes and toys and when she visited she always came calling with these big old trunks full of gifts.  My dad was sort of her favorite and well we got the benefits of that favoritism.

She’s been long gone.  The last time I visited that area and her original home was some eight years ago while on a business trip to Seattle and I took a few extra days to visit with family.  My aunt now lives in that home and while her taste in decor isn’t of the same caliber or charm.. it still held the that old familiar smell of years gone by.

I think I love you.

I think I love you 038

When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being “in love”, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”  ― Louis de Bernieres, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin

My little mess of goodness.


Booger 013-1

The Arcade is only less than a week away and by some of the previews I’ve seen already the bar has been raised for this round.  Soon the arcade chat will be going a mile a minute as the trading begins.  I’m excited to be showing you some cute stuff that one of my favorite creators of kids stuff, “BoOgErS”, has for this round of The Arcade.  Toys that every child would love, starting with the baby kitchen that will be the rare item in the whole set.  To make it complete you have the grocery set that has vegetables, canned goods, milk and eggs and then the cooking set that has the pans, plate, utensils and baking pan.  Other items shown here include the shape sorter and wagon blocks that on touch to either dumps the blocks and shapes on the floor and cleans up too.  The panda behind me in the picture is also part of the set, though everything in the set is not being shown.  These are just a few of the items for you to see.
