September is my favorite month. The scalding days are behind us, the breezes comforting. There are a couple more months of gardening where I live, but digging in the dirt is over and now it is harvesting and planning for next year.

Out from Sway's for Uber , an outdoor pose prop. This month's theme is apocalypse. Now I am not getting the connection with the Crack Birdhouse and the End of Times, but I LOVE the birdhouse LOL -- so who cares?  There are color choices (red, green, blue by clicking and menu) as well as some very nice animations in the stump.

From Shutter Field, the sf suitcase planter which comes in several colors and with light or dark soil. It is a little primmy so if you are on a 512 it probably won't work for you but very pretty! Find it at the shop near The Challenge orange and blue Challenge marker.

In the background you can see one of Sway's doormats for The Arcade. These come with both single and couple animations and a variety of decorations on the mat. This is my favorite!

My oh so comfy outfit (I just love these 'yoga' pants with the cutest little ties!) is from Center Ville Maison.

And my shades are once again from Meva, the Aviator Sunglass 1 with friendly hud; many options.

Color Bursts

Summer is winding down for many of us, for some it is on the horizon. Whether reminiscence is in order or feelings of expectation, there is plenty of color in our world.  

As a counterpoint, I picked the natural version of the {what next} Malmo Chairs (The Arcade) to show you. There are lots of pretty pastels as well as some other neutrals to be had -- and two with footstools. Perfect for lounging outdoors as the season changes.

Also from The Arcade, a collection of fun book people entitled "Night at the Library". See? Even this guy is in colorful mode. Not all wandering books are as hue inspired *wink*.  Look for the flowey gacha machine.

Now you couldn't possibly have missed my bright dress and multicolor hair. Here's the scoop on those.

* eXxEsS : CICHA (an assortment of color huds are available including both multi and single tones)

It's Arcade Time

It is almost September and that means a new round of The Arcade!  While I am not a gambler at heart, last round I discovered the garage sales which I definitely enjoy so feel free to crank that handle as much as you want. I may be waiting to buy your extras!

With lots of great things coming your way, this is my sneak peak at the event. I have no idea what the official theme is or even if there is a theme, but it seems to have a retro vibe from the things I have seen so far.

Hence I dressed up in a very vintage swimsuit, just out from 20.Five, the Beau Bikini set (which by the way coordinates with the other new swimwear). Color choices by hud of course.

The star of this Arcade preview is the {theosophy} For Future Reference set. The machines are so inventive and fun, making me smile big time after a difficult day pounding on my computer. The Zultor's Wisdom booth gives fortunes you wear on your screen to see. There is appropriate music and flashing red eyes. You can almost hear the carnival or boardwalk in the background.

The testers also play music with lights flashing through the choices and  -- finally, landing on "the answer" :D. Really you need to see these.

Now as much as I LOVED LOVED LOVED these, I couldn't really think where I could put them (chuckle). I finally decided that they would be appropriate discarded clutter in the alleyway next to the warehouse gym. When I was processing this photo I hit the vibrancy slider a bit too far and ended up with black and white -- which seemed, PERFECT.

If you just can't wait until you make it into the event, feel free to come by and play (and take some photos of course). Here is the spot.
