2000 Miles

Outside under the purple sky,
Diamonds in the snow,
Sparkle.
Our hearts were singing,
It felt like Christmas time.
2000 miles.
Is very far through the snow
I’ll think of you
Wherever you go.

The worst part of SL is that friends are often physically far far away. As the lyrics say, “2000 miles is very far through the snow.” I am thinking of many friends from SL with whom I can’t share this time face-to-face, and I do miss them. (Though I had the wonderful pleasure of having Eshi with me this Eve.) I did not send out an in-world holiday card. This is my card for all of you, my dear friends.

This morning I will wake up in my Christmas jammies (which I can only legitimately wear one time a year) and enjoy the morning sunlight coming through the windows while we open gifts. My jammies, from Antonia Marat, are cozy and warm, and I almost didn’t get out of bed to be honest. It was so snuggly.

When can you wear bare feet in winter? Well when you’re in your jammies, of course, and Siddean Munro’s feets are perfect, especially as I can color the nails red—instant pedicure!

My skin is the new fresh beautiful face offered by Mallory Cowen. She really created a beautiful set with this newest release. I love the freshness of the skins—how the make-up is not overdone. It creates a beautiful palate on which you can potentially put other make-ups later. My hair is a messy-out-of-bed piece from Truth Hawks—one of his new releases this week.

2000 Miles

2000 miles,
Is very far.
The snows falling down,
It’s colder day by day.
I miss you.
I can hear people singing,
It must be Christmas time.

Goodnight Moon

The other night we had a ‘jama party at Tiphares. I threw on my FAVORITE jammies and pulled out one of my many teddy bears. (How does this happen that I have so many teddy bears in inventory? And, no, they are not Linden bears.)

Goodnight Moon

The jammies, which I can’t find on the grid anymore, were a darling early offering from Pushbutton Skolnick. With their footed bottoms and the soft cloudy print, I thought they were a terrific change from the same old lingerie. I mean, who really WEARS lace to bed? The whole point of it is that it’s itchy and you take it OFF. With these jammies, they stay on all night while you snuggle your bear.

Goodnight Moon

The hair I chose is sweet girly pigtails from Hinano Runo. I got this one a while ago—before Hal*Hina started occupying their current large store. They are long enough to bypass the simply girly look into a more coquettish, fantasy look—something a sexy young woman would wear to *pretend* to be girly. I offset that sex appeal with a freckled skin from Pulse’s new Harmony line.

Goodnight Moon

And my sweet bear is from Sakuya Lane, who also carries other fascinating accessories, like exquisite little tea sets and pretty bonbons on trays and ice cream at her shop, Feather. She also has a line of clothes, mostly of the Lolita flavor with some kimonos and jewelry.
