Across the Kissing Bridge


Down the Road from the Kissing Bridge

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I traveled to the Holiday Trace sim today, and the “Kissing Bridge” there reminded me of the home of my childhood.  In rural America,  covered bridges are sometimes referred to as “kissing bridges” or “courting bridges” because the roof overhead offered privacy, and the chance to smooch your significant other, which was said to bring good luck.  Since I didn’t have a significant other along with me, I followed a second tradition from my youth:  one childhood friend told me if I held my breath all the way across the bridge, I’d be granted one wish, so of course, that’s what I tried today!

A Wish for a New Dress……Granted!

Shanti granted my bridge-wish with the Festive Unicorn Dress, which is a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group.  With a cheery red and white color scheme, this knitted, sleeveless frock features a high collar and rows of white unicorns and hearts.  I just had to smile when I looked at the details in the pattern.  As a girl, I was practically obsessed with horses and unicorns, so it was kind of fitting that the answer to my wish involved these magnificent creatures.  To pick up a copy of this lighthearted gift for yourself, simply journey to Shanti, activate the Teleport Hub Group Tag (10L to join the group), and click the vendor.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh Dress in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars for both the dress and the boots
  • Mesh Tall Boots (not shown in my picture) in XS, S, M, L, XL

Until my next post, happy shopping!

  8. Kat…how do you get the snow falling effect in your photo?


  9. It was snowing at the sim. I turn my graphics up to ultra when I take a snapshot for the blog. For normal, day to day moving around, I run on mid-quality. I also use different wind light settings for my pictures. I hope that helps, Chericolette 🙂


  10. Might help, my shots are almost always ‘live’ in a sim but the snow doesnt show up in my photo.


  11. Do you have particles turned off, Chericolette?
