Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

Sunflowers and Daydreams

Coming soon to fab free

It’s getting closer every day to summer, but it doesn’t much feel like it where I live.  Not only are we coming out of the pandemic still, but its cold, overcast and rainy.  Ew. Not very appealing for a time of the year that usually sees folks spending time outdoors, grilling and having a nice bit of fresh air.  It is also a time for those outdoor get togethers. As an introvert, I don’t mind it at all.  I would rather this than have to go sit at someone’s barbecue that I really don’t want to be at.  That sounds worse than it is, I think.  Remember, an introvert wants to be invited, with the option to not have to go.  Social events are draining for us, though we love seeing friends and family, an entire day we are forced to endure gets to be a bit much, especially if there is nowhere for us to escape to for some quiet recharge time.

So today you find me lounging amongst the sunflowers to show off my finds for you!

High Tides & Good Vibes!

I do love the beach. The sound of the ocean, the smell of the salt water, the wind in my hair and some squishy sand between my toes. I prefer a quiet natural beach to the insanely packed ones. I love the beaches up in Rhode Island. So beautiful with lots of those smooth pretty rocks I love to collect (I admit I have far too many). I also love to collect pretty hunt items and I have one for you today. I found these cute jeans in the High Tides & Good Vibes Hunt at Pink Funk.  This is a 1L hunt, but each designer has a choice to also offer a 25L item, this item is a 25L item, but they also have a cute dress out for 1L.  This hunt runs from June 5 to June 30.

They fit:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Well That’s Just Tops!

The cute top I paired it with is a freebie from the Beauty Event, which has about a bazillion (ok it just *feels* like a bazillion!) free gifts (no group required!) this round to celebrate its anniversary.  I’m still going through them all!  This freebie is from MOW.  It has a HUD that has 10 fabrics for you to choose from.  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

The Beauty Event runs until the 11th of June.

But Wait!  There’s More!

My shoes and necklace are both dollarbie market finds to finish up this super cute outfit.  My shoes are by Lacy’s Apparel and they cost me 5L.  They come in 8 colors and fit Maitreya.  My necklace is from Romazin and that cost me 1L!  Such cute well made stuff!
