Can't think of what to say that doesn't sound like my standard broken record of "amazing! gorgeous! perfection!" - and truly, all of that does apply here. However, instead, I will simply say this: Apple Fall does "weathered" really really really well. ♥

I feel like The Arcade brings out some of the best mesh food. The Arcade also brings out Julliette Westerburg of Tres Blah, and she makes some of the most delicious food I've ever seen. A = B = C, therefore A = C and now I really want some sliders. Math makes me hungry.

I haven't been able to blog for blog's sake in quite a long while. Just to keep up with the shop and the events, I've had to put good old fashioned blogging on the back burner. I expect it will be that way going forward for an indefinite amount of time (which I've let my contributing designers know), BUT at this very moment and hopefully for a few weeks, I've got some time. While I can, I want to make pretty pics and show them to you, so I'mma give that a shot.

The Arcade is open for the December round, and ohmygoodness, the decor. ♥ So much gorgeousness. I can't really highlight one specific designer's set in this post -- the scene is made up of a lot of pieces from different sets, and I love how so much of it works together so well. It's another amazing round that must be seen!

I feel like if I lived here, small woodland creatures would help me dress every morning. That would probably leave more time for breakfast, really, and that can't be bad.

Here's the main thing I want to say about this picture: that bed looks motherf*ckin' real. As I was taking my pics, even though I clearly know that this is not a "real" bed, my brain was like 'whoa! look at that real bed!' I cannot take any credit for that bed looking so real, it has nothing to do with my photography -- the credit for that is all due to Trompe Loeil's Cory Edo. She made it happen. This is the Roanna Bed from this month's FaMESHed and it looks as real in-world as it does in this picture. Maybe I should be past the point where I'm so amazed by mesh and by what amazing designers like Cory are able to do with it...but I'm not. Sorry, not sorry.

Also, everything in this pic is gorgeous -- there's so much wonderfulness to be had out there right now. Check out the credits for all the details and get out there to these events WHILE YOU STILL CAN.

Finally, we've made it to the top of the precious broch tuarach house from Tegan Serin and floorplan. That's THREE posts out of one tiny house. Love it.

We're coming to the end of the month, which means most of our special events are coming close to moving on to their next cycle. I think you know what to do.
