.. maybe what’s broken ..

Life experience is what defines our character,
even if it means getting your heart broken or being lied to.
You know, you need the downs to appreciate the ups.
Going on the adventure or taking that risk is important.
                                              ~  Nev Schulman

.. maybe what's broken ..

So many events, so little time.  Shiny Shabby opens again and that’s where I found the outfit, shoes, jewelry and hair.  The little dog came from The Gacha Garden and the bag, the glasses and the fuzzy dice are all to be found in the Gift Shop at the Festival of Sin II which starts tomorrow, and yes they are GIFTS for all!

.. bah humbug, not! ..

One of the most interesting and detailed finds at the December round of The Arcade Gacha Event is the Humbug Christmas gacha from DRD which features Ebenezer Scrooge’s house and furnishings.  I love the detail and the suggestion of seriousness that the house holds.

“There are some upon this earth of yours,’ returned the Spirit,
‘who lay claim to know us, and who do their deeds of
passion, pride, ill-will, hatred, envy, bigotry, and selfishness in our name;
who are as strange to us and all our kith and kin, as if they had never lived.
Remember that, and charge their doings on themselves, not us.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“I will live in the past, the present, and the future.
The spirits of all three shall strive within me.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

Blog 121414 Arcade DRD house 3a

“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things,
that while there is infection in disease and sorrow,
there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

Blog 121414 Arcade DRD house 4a

“I don’t know what to do!” cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath;
and making a perfect Laocoön of himself with his stockings.
“I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I
am as merry as a school-boy. I am as giddy as a drunken man.
A merry Christmas to every-body!
A happy New Year to all the world!
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol

“And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well,
if any man alive possessed the knowledge.
May that be truly said of us, and all of us!
And so, as Tiny Tim observed,
God bless Us, Every One!
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”
