I am completely and utterly obsessed with the newest release from Trompe Loeil. This rustic skybox is not only cozy, but also spacious. How Cory Edo managed to accomplish combining cozy and spacious, i’m uncertain, but she did a flawless job. I make mention of the skybox as a whole because you can only see a very small glimpse of it here in my post. Flip through her flickr for some detailed shots of this great new home.
Two other things I’m obsessing over since my return are the picket fence bed from Cheeky Pea, and the heritage arm chair from DIGS. Both I wish I had real life versions of, so I could curl up with some good literature and a cup of coffee and start or end my day right.
This post is filled with all sorts of other little items that I just fell in love with. Home and garden posts are quickly becoming some of my favorite posts to create. I love envisioning these cozy spaces, and wish so badly to have them in real life form!

Hi everyone! I have returned!
My lengthy trip was wonderful, and I am now a married woman! Everything about the trip was perfect and I never imagined having such a beautiful wedding. It was like living in a dream! Now that I’m back, I am trying to get into the swing of things but you will have to bear with me as I am incredibly behind, and I have not a single clue what’s happening in SL right now. It’s going to take me a few weeks to get back into a groove and a routine. Since I’m so far behind I’ll show you a few things from a few of my favorite events this month.
So for now, here’s a new picture, and a few new(ish) items that I worth checking out.

I met up with Plurk friend Caney Hambleton today for a little fall stroll on my residential sim Sunshine Mist. It was nice to enjoy the new fall scenery, as well as show off our new autumn attire from Coldlogic. I love this time of the year in Second Life because the fashion is always my favorite. So many cute things for cooler weather. I wish you all a happy autumn season! Thank you again Caney for being apart of my blog today!

So today on plurk (sorry mine is private, but feel free to add me!) we did this silly, introspective, yet relatively light hearted meme called “How Do You See Me?”. Most everyone who participated did it anonymously so that people could leave comments and such. I was pretty impressed that nearly everything said on mine was either positive, incredibly sweet, or honest & constructive. I think the most negative thing someone said was “Sometimes you annoy me.” and quite frankly, sometimes I annoy myself, so I was really not offended.
One thing the little exercise made me realize though was that I am notoriously bad about keeping to myself and not opening up to people. I kind of spend most my time alone on my platform, or with a few small select people in world. A person or two even commented saying that I’m one of the “cool kids” on plurk, and I had to laugh, because if they knew me, they’d know that quite honestly I’m alone most of the time, unless a Bean event is taking place.
Maybe I should learn to branch out more. Broaden my horizons. Not be afraid to open up in Second Life again, and meet new people, and socialize more. I think because I’ve been burned in the past, I’ve just learned to throw walls up that I need to learn to break down.
So here is my invitation to you. Reach out to me. Get to know me. Help me to be better about getting to know others in the community. That was the sole reason I started The Bean in the first place. Was to meet people around the world.
It’s just ironic that someone who owns a venue, and spend so much time on social networks, is honestly often times, alone.
