The Librarian’s Lair

Snapshot_320
Our Librarian travels the world and her world are books! Her passionate pursuit of the bound leather and gold that are filled with secrets, knowledge, of ages long gone, current events, and things yet to happen, excites her, thrills her, like nothing else can! Imagine, with just a careful turn of a page, her ardor is  awakened, aroused, and is sated. So it is not surprising, that her small personal space is filled with that love…books! Her home is truly one that is stuffed to the rafters with books of every kind and all that inspires her.  Let’s take a peek and open a page into her private world…the world of the Librarian’s Lair!

A Story Worth Telling…Reclaimed Wood Dresser Set by Zen Creations @ The Cosmopolitan Event

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our homes speaks volumes, about us! It tells a story of who we are, pride of where we live, our values, what and who we love, without uttering a word! Zhoie Zimmerman, of Zen Creations, loves to tell you a story, too, with her Reclaimed Wood Dresser Set, available at this round of The Cosmopolitan Event for December. She thoughtfully takes wood that contains character and much beauty, and creates from the old, something new, with a glorious past, that is just perfect for your present!  In the dressers, if you look closely, maybe you can “hear” the past echoes of times long gone, that is found within the unique grain patterns, knots, nail holes, dings and dents, and color variations. Perhaps the chosen woods tell you they came from, whispering a grand gentlemen’s bordello, a old barn beyond its prime, a beautiful aged and ancient house that deserves to live on, even in parts! One thing you can be certain, that both the tall and short dressers, with their various sized drawers, has a story worth retelling and worthy of display, in your home!  So make your way to ZEN CREATIONS, at the Cosmopolitan Event, and weave these impressive dressers into the fabric of your life and add to your story, the Reclaimed Wood Dresser Set by Zen Creations!

The accessories used, the Chalkboard, candles, bird, bird cage, umbrella, and vase of flowers are all from the Spring Blackboard Art Table Set by Zen Creations. It is available at the inworld store, http://slurl.com/secondlife/Island%20of%20Zen/208/79/26 or on MP at https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Spring-Blackboard-Art-Table-Set/8095762

Marie Antoinette Eat Your Heart Out…Featuring Wicca’s Wardrobe Endeavour Hat

ART IN HATS 2015 WICCA ENDEAVOR HAT_012

Marie’s hairdresser, the temperamental Leonard, would throw a hissy fit and swoon if he could look through the annals of time and see Wicca’s Wardrobe Endeavour Hat! Just think of the hours that he could have saved if he had such a amazing and unique unisex hat such as this!

Women would spend hours sitting, at their toilette, as huge, outlandish, and intricate hair stylings featuring little vignettes scenes, bird cages with live birds, little villages, ships, what have you, were created for their hair style for that day.  Leonard’s poufs were also a great way for, the ladies of that era, to celebrate or mark  current events.  In the case of Marie Antoinette’s tall ship, she was celebrating the victory of the French frigate Belle Poule over the British, in 1778. She cause a riot!!! As women everywhere, who could afford, would bankrupt their families, to flock to their hairdressers to copy the queen’s iconic look!

ART IN HATS 2015 WICCA ENDEAVOR HAT_004

This tres chic hat, is in the style of a modified Belled Top Hat, that has been adorned with dark red roses, nettings, and of course, the infamous Tall Ship! The hat looks simply stunning on any who wears it and can be worn in many genres of fashion styles, from goth, steampunk, to your most elegant, envy causing look!

So Marie….where you had to sit for hours, pay a country’s economy to become the icon you have, eat your heart out, as all I have to do is don this extraordinary, head turning design, Endeavour, by Wicca’s Wardrobe, to become legendary! Wicca’s Wardrobe Endeavor Hat is available, exclusively, at the Art in Hats Event, which ends November 14th!

In The Dark of The Night…Featuring Stillness by Miss Darcy

MISS DARCY STILLNESS ART IN HATS 2015 EVENT_001
In the dark of the night, you must not fear, for we are never truly alone. What face will YOU present, in the stillness of the night? Stillness is a clever, unique presentation of a avant garde headpiece that is thought provoking and very stylishly.
MISS DARCY STILLNESS ART IN HATS 2015 EVENT_004
I love the cre­ative mix­ture of ele­ments, as seen in this striking head­ piece and Pierrot Style Sad Face Clown Makeup above. It has a melange of circling Black Swallow Birds, the starkness of the lone, leaf barren tree, the beauty of the single Blue Crow Bird perch upon a branch with the juxtapose use of the White and Black Pierrot Clown Makeup is riveting!  The awe inspiring. wearable work, Stillness by Miss Darcy, can be found, now, at the Art in Hats 2015 Event.

Whatever it is I am, one thing is for damn skippy sure, I look  way better than that little fairy in my gorgeous Tres Beau Roses Hat!

Intensify The Interest… wearing Cica Ghost!

CICA 2 FOR ART IN HATS EVENT_022I was very excited to learn that Cica Ghost would be part of this year’s Art in Hats 2015 Event! OMG, like so many of you, I have been entranced by her art, in Second Life, for ages now. When I saw the hats she would have, at the event..I died and went to hat heaven! Cica has a way of drawing you into her art, where you feel what she feels when creating her phenomenal installations. Her hats designs are no different and are a work of art that draws you in, with its own siren call! The tantalizing chapeau, I wear, is a wide brim,  floppy style Fedora Hat. The crown is round and is trimmed in the most luxurious fur. I tried to obscure my face, with a face net veil, so you could see the gorgeous beauty of her hat. The hat material is that of a velour paisley print, whose elegance will take you to the height of chapeau chic, whether you go casual or choose to shut a room down, with your entrance!

CICA 2 FOR ART IN HATS EVENT_005

Cica has added a bit of the unexpected, with the boho styled, dressed playing violinist that adorns the hat brim. Yes, this cool looking musician actually plays and I was hooked, just watching him play. This hat is just incredible..  I am in love with this hat!!! Since your face is the first thing, that most people notice about you, intensify their interest wearing Cica Ghost’s hat, available at the Art in Hats 2015 Event!

The Art in Hats 2015 Event opens officially on November 4th. I will include the landmark as soon as the event opens to the public!
