Tea Time in Dorne

Before the Seven Kingdoms, before the Iron Throne, there was Dorne. Twelve thousand years ago the First Men crossed the land bridge from Essos to here. Of course they were men so they soon broke it. Then while their cousins to the north built kingdoms, The Dornish squabbled over land, water and wives, for centuries. Until Nymeria, a warrior princess in Essos. She led a fleet of 10,000 ships across the Narrow Sea to Dorne. Almost all of the petty lords made it clear that she wasn’t welcome. All but one, Mors of House Martell. He saw in her a strength to match any man, including his rivals. After she accepted his marriage offer she set fire to her ships. For 50 leagues the coast was bright as day. And in the burning light, Princess Nymeria names Mors Martell, the Prince of Dorne.

InsurreKtion is participating in the Ice and Fire event with the magnificent Tea Time in Dorne set which offers all the mouth-watering treats you’d want for your Dornish tea party. All of them dispenses bento animated treats for you and your guests to enjoy.

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!

Right Here Waiting

I’m not even going to quote the song I’m sure you all started humming it when you saw the title. Right? Little did I know when I listened to it on repeat back in 1989, that hearing it again in 2021 would really hit my feels lol but here we are. Oceans apart. And I’m sure a lot of you are feeling it now too, going on over a year with covid restrictions but hey, we can see the end of it now and soon we can all be close again. Keep staying safe until we all are safe from harm.

Heart and Soul

When you realize nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

Lao Tzu

By decorating this warm and colorful Boho Zen patio corner I feel like I’ve created a space to nurture both heart and soul. What a wonderful place to either eat, sleep or just relax and cuddle. Gah, I wish it would stop snowing now!

Welcome To 1307 Bird Ln.

There’s still 2-3 feet of snow on the ground where I live in real life. Yes, the thaw has started but spring has definitely arrived at 1307 Bird Lane in Second Life. The blackbirds are occupying the mailbox and it’s ok because we hardly ever use it anymore anyway. The plum tree outside the wall is starting to bear fruit and the car is clean inside and outside and it looks brand new again! Ok yeah, I’m really longing for spring now.

This Morning I Told The Flowers..

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

Rupi Kaur, The Sun and Her Flowers

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.
