Summer Harvest Hunt

The Summer Harvest Hunt started today and I was up bright and early to do it as I have been watching the feeds and drooling over the gifts for the last week! It runs until September 21st so you have lots of time to go hunting for these beautiful finds.

You are looking for a little acorn as the hunt prize and the starting point is .evolve. . The things for each picture are listed underneath so you can see easier what you are looking at.

My pictures are quite basic at the moment but I thought I would try out one of the other windlight settings to give this picture a little bit of an Autumnal evening look. I thought it came out quite well!

Furnishings Friday #11 – I’ve Got The Swimming Pool Blues

FF1 This week for Furnishing’s Friday I have decided to feature some of the structures, furniture and home decorating items you can find in The Swimming Pool Blues Hunt.  This hunt runs until August 31st, and everything in the hunt is blue themed and just 5L.  The hunt icon you are searching for is the blue cube shown below.  You can find more information on this hunt and a complete list with slurls, hints and photo previews at the following link – http://monochromehunts.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/hunt-gifts-preview-and-hints/

At L&K Prefabs you will find Ma Petite Maison (bleu) which is the little blue house shown above.  This little unfurnished home is 62 prims and has a little loft with a ladder inside.

huntobject
Below you will see displayed, the UrbanizeD Wall Arty in Monochrome Blue Limited Edition and the Senzafine Sideboard (16 prims).

FF5Below the loft, I have set up the Comfy Sofa (12 prims) from .MM. that has several poses and seats up to two people with the Blue, Oh So Blue 6 pose animated mesh chair from Kusshon (1 prim), and the Oceanic End Table (includes mesh) from Baffle!
FF2

In the upper loft, you can see The Summertime Blues Chairs (regular sized and petite, 14 prims each) from Prism that include several cute sitting poses.
FF3

On the back wall I have displayed SFW Industries Photo Frame Grouping that includes all the pictures you see and is just 1 prim.
FF6

In the last photo here you can see the mesh Vibrant Blue Sitting Nook that includes the animated chair, table and lamp from Little House of Curios.  You can also see my dress well in this photo.  It is part of the hunt too!  This blue mesh dress is made by Leri Miles Designs.  You might be squinting your eyes to see the very tiny person outside the window lol…  This chick used to own this land…  (note, I’ve been here a year) and just never moved out!  I banned her a few months ago lol because she doesn’t speak – just stands there lol, and now she rezzes in right outside my land.  OI!  lolol  I suppose I’ll never be lonely.

FF4

NOTE – If you’d like to see any of these photos larger, just click on them and they’ll take you to my flickr.

The Snowflake Experience

The Snowflake Experience opens today. There are 62 stores each with special items that donate a portion of their profits to Toys for Tots. Along the way there are little candycanes, each containing a special gift for you!

The sim is split into four seperate areas, each with a little theme and there are some strewn around the main landing area too. I have split the hunt items down into these areas to try to make it easier for you to know where to look. There are some items that I havent found so you will no doubt find more… and I am sorry if I get a little mixed up with some items being in other areas, but I tried to make it as simple as possible for you, so forgive me a few probable mistakes as I have been the queen of mistakes recently with SLURLS.

Gimme Pink

Today is pink shirt day.  I’m sure you are wondering, “What IS Pink Shirt day?”

.

Pink Shirt Day started in a Nova Scotia high school, where a 9th grade boy was being bullied over wearing a pink polo shirt to school.   Senior boys decided to take a stand against the bullying, by wear pink the next day.  They went to a local discount store and bought 50 pink shirts, and distributed them amongst the other boys in their high school. They stood up for their fellow classmate and against the bullies, and made a real difference in someone’s life.

.

Internationally, people are encouraged to wear pink today to show others that bullying will not be tolerated.

Bullying affects everybody.  In my home town this year 5 teenage children have taken their own lives because they were bullied by peers.  It’s alarming to think that they felt there was no where to turn.

Bullying happens in all settings, not just school.  Bullying happens daily in our Second Life just as often as it does in our first lives.  I have seen first hand the cyber-bullying that goes on within SL.

In FabFree, we often get ridiculed about our shapes, skin, etc.  These are really silly things to insult, because in SL all this can change with the slide of the mouse and click of a button.  Our appearance is our preference in Second Life and if we were not comfortable and accepting then we would have changed by now.

Yesterday, I logged into SL to find three shapes awaiting me along with a message that said my shape was ugly.  My fellow writers have had similar, if not worse, comments.  I think it is time that people realize that in SL (just like RL) people look different.  Many of us base our SL appearance on how we look in our first life.  We are pixels, but we are also humans capable of emotion.  Comments made in SL can hurt a person.

When our amazing new male bloggers recently joined the FabFree writer family, questions of sexuality were left as comments on the blog and in group chat.  Sexual Preferences really shouldn’t matter in any situation.  It has been eye-opening how much hatred there is in SL, a place many use to escape the negativity of RL.

The cyber-bullying continues because it easy to be anonymous and spread negativity.  Today, to show that we do not tolerate bullying there will be a lot of pink shown on FabFree.

I encourage you to reach out to someone who may be victim of bullying.  If you know someone who bullies others, find out why and what is the root cause.  Use this day to talk to your friends, your children, and those around you.  Stand up, make a difference.

*And Wear Pink!*
