Here’s To The Fools Who Dream

So bring on the rebels
The ripples from pebbles
The painters, and poets, and plays

And here’s to the fools who dream

La La Land – “Audition (the fools who dream)”

If you want to keep the river or ocean from flooding your city you better do like the Parisians and build an embankment. Never Totally Dead now offers you the possibility of creating an embankment that looks exactly like the one along the river Seine in Paris, with their Les Quais de Seine building set. I couldn’t stop once I started building and my blogger platform is now a city with the prettiest river bank ever. Check out Les Quais de Seine at this round of Cosmopolitan!

Please step into this garden, sit by the pool and and take a deep breath. Inhale peace. Exhale worry. Again. Inhale peace. Exhale worry. Sometimes it’s ok if the only thing you did today was breathe.

This Morning I Told The Flowers..

this morning
I told the flowers
what I’d do for you
and they blossomed

InsurreKtion is participating in this round of The Liaison Collaborative with the Spring Cleaning Sale collection. That’s everything you see in the pile to the left. Except the Bullfinch. The Bullfinch is TLC. Everything definitely looks like stuff you’d find when cleaning the attic and basement. Spring is here (not where I live in RL but everywhere else) and it represents a time of rebirth and renewal and things like flowers and love blossoming. It is time for spring cleaning, open the windows and let fresh air blend with your spring blossom scented floor cleaner!

Bloom Springtime Market just opened and Sari-Sari is there with the adorable Birdhouse Men & Wooden Farmhouse Lanterns. The only reason they’re in my yard sale is because they’re Copy so I can keep a set for myself!

I’m feeling casual and comfy so today I’m wearing the Tommy Polo by ERAUQS, which matches so nicely with the ERAUQS Blaise Jogger pants. The Tommy Polo is a new release and it’s available right now at Men Only Monthly. It’s compatible with Legacy (shown on me), Jake and Gianni male mesh bodies.
