“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes…”
I’m not about to argue semantics with William Shakespeare, seeing as how he’s dead and all, but he really didn’t paint MacBeth’s witches with an attractive brush, did he? I suppose in his defense it’s not like he was the only one to conjure (haha) up images of craggy crones cloaked in black, stooped over boiling cauldrons. It’s an image perfect for costume parties. And while black might be the preferred clothing colour choice nowadays- at least for drama- I do prefer to glam things up a little bit while trying to keep up witchy appearances.
Decorating helps set up a proper seasonal mood, too! I look forward all year to putting out the Halloween finery. So go forth and dress in your spiderweb tights and witchy buckle shoes, adorn your homes with gravestones and scarecrows, and if you happen to see spectral things dancing through your yard, just out of the corner of your eye, just remember that the veil is thinning…

Perhaps I do, perhaps I don’t…it’s difficult to say for sure because I rarely remember them! But it amuses me greatly to think that they could look something like this. Just imagine- images so colourful you can almost taste them. And pretty things from my favourite stores certainly help in giving them life! If you haven’t yet done your round through the Taste The Rainbow hunt, I would recommend it. It’s a small hunt, as Second Life hunts go, so if you’re like me and are easily overwhelmed with massive grid-wide hunts then this small ‘taste’ of a hunt is sure to satisfy you.

Light. Dark. Yin. Yang. Ethereal and pale with an edgy side, or dark and primly demure.

I’m a total flake! This is not news, I know. What may or may not be news is that today, so is my blog!
See that? Great. Big. Flake. And it’s sitting right in the middle of my sweater. I would like to swear that I did not spot this latest Sn@tch-N-Grab outfit and immediately want the sweater JUST so I could tell people that I am a big flake and have the clothes to prove it, but I think we all know that’s not true, hmmm?
You can snazz up the sweater- it looks ridiculously cute with the accompanying skirt, but it is also the type of sweater that could become quite close friends with your jeans. And did I mention the flake? I think I might have, but it’s hard to remember sometimes…
That’s all for the moment! I’ll be taking my flake and dancing off now.
