.. the marfa collection ..

blog-112016-kraftwork-marfa-collection-lost-and-found

Nodnol Jameson has been a busy busy bee over the past weeks as she prepared for the opening of her new store – Kraftwork.  I shared the amazing store location last post and today I’m previewing her release for the “Lost and Found” event that opens tomorrow (November 22, 2016).  This set includes a sofa, small side table, a rug, a 2-frame set and a longhorn skull – all part of The Marfa Collection from Kraftwork.

In this second pic, the pose is from the sofa which has both single and couple poses. It’s great for 2 friends or a more romantic couple.  The cute little table holds a diary and the detail is so awesome.  The prints are simple but have such a sweet message.  The skull (seen in the top pic) is colorful and very detailed as well. And the rug has a fur texture that you could just bury your toes in.

Be sure to check out Kraftwork at this month’s Lost and Found starting tomorrow.  And to keep up with all the awesomeness that Nod is bringing to the grid – be sure to like the Kraftwork Facebook page too!

.. meaning to sing you the song ..

I had the opportunity to visit the Shiny Shabby event yesterday and I nearly bought one of everything!  I had fun meandering around the streets of the event, poking my head in to see what the creators have designed specifically for the February round. Shiny Shabby is described as “a flea market for new and weathered things”.  Those that love vintage and antique items in Second Life will be over the moon this round. So many things to choose from. But if you enjoy a more modern style, don’t despair.. there is plenty for you too!  The event opens in grand style at noon SLT today (February 20th). Take the time to visit this cool new event.

We know so perfectly how to give birth to the monsters inside us,
but for reasons I will never figure out,
we have not the slightest clue of what to do with all the love.
~Christopher Poindexter

You know you’re in trouble
When the spotlight is on you
When nothing can be trusted
And you don’t know what to do

Hold on to yourself
You’re just someone like me
And you’re slowly becoming
What you’re pretending to be

I’ve been meaning to sing you the song
I’ve been meaning to sing you the song for so long

And to all you good people
That were lost along the way
I have need for your smiles
And friendship today

All those magical nights
When our aim seemed so true
You of all must know the reason
I still feel like I do

I’ve been meaning to sing you the song
I’ve been meaning to sing you the song for so long

I must take to the stage
I need nerves of steel
No matter how weak
And how weightless I feel

I just wanted to come across strong
Who, really, who was I trying to fool
