Playing possum, or in the words of the late great Mark Twain, “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” The philosopher Immanuel Kant said that lying was always morally wrong. He argued that all persons are born with an “intrinsic worth” that he called human dignity. This dignity derives from the fact that humans are uniquely rational beings, capable of freely making their own decisions, setting their own goals, and guiding their conduct by reason. To be human, said Kant, is to have the rational power of free choice; to be ethical is to respect that power in oneself and in others. Free choice, what a remarkable thing it is to be human.

SPRING AWAKENING CASTING

SpringSPRING AWAKENING

As I uncurl from winters’ upper hand,
a sense of freedom, spills on to this land.
Long shadows become shortened by its spell,
a multitude of life, awakens, from where I dwell.

Stretching, in the warmth of air, hesitating for a while,
noticing no frigidness, nor taunt, of any icy smile.
Slender and slowly slithering, bursting from my shell,
I am filled with a new life, overpowering winter’s quell.

Brown, to green, a vastness of sun streams down,
from bare to bud, shedding, my protective gown.
All around, the ground, from where I graciously spring,
this spring, awakening, all, that I am destined to bring.

Poem by Joe Coe

For our next book, we want to capture the beauty of spring as nature awakens from the deep freeze of winter. From blooming flowers to beautiful butterflies and insects, each model must represent and…

Gezelligheid.”Froukje Hoorenbeek was having a hard time trying to convey a very Dutch thing to me. “Gezellig is not only people, a room or a home can be it too,” she tried again. Looking up “gezelligheid” or “gezellig” did not offer more explanation, but instead made it even more complex.This Dutch word has no equivalent in English. One can attempt to describe as a feeling of coziness, quaintness, pleasant or entertaining, but those descriptions would not even begin to explain the word well.  It is more like a state of mind towards a certain atmosphere and the elements in it. Dutch people cannot even explain this properly to non-Dutch.It is clear, however, that Fruokje’s “gezzelig” has a lot to do with homing instincts.

THE WINTER SORCERESS

The Winter Sorceress brings deep freeze and cold chaos in all her glory.
A once beautiful princess that was cursed by evil  is her story.
Her very touch can turn a man into icy snow while her kiss is like a winter’s blow.
The ground is frozen with each step she takes, blizzard and snow storms appear with each breath she makes.

Over the last 2 years, I have witnessed the quality and uniqueness of Second Life Home & Garden stores’ creations develop in a great way. This virtual world that we love is an amazing platform for creating and making beautiful dreams come to some sort of reality.

As you probably know, especially if you are a follower of my blog, I am very passionate about great design and work. I am a huge fan of realism and I believe in Second Life, the quality of talent is that great now that we can make spaces both indoors and outdoors, look so amazing that we envision it being in our Real Lives also.

Earlier this year, I created the Love To Decorate Flickr group, which now holds more than 1,600 members and 13,000 photos. It has become a great resource for me, so good that I check it every single day…

I’m going to try not to make this sound like an ad you see in a newspaper, but hopefully it may be something that grabs your interest and you would like to be a part of!

I have been sitting on something that I’ve wanted to do for a while and now, I feel it is the right time. A new year is approaching, which for me means new projects and new adventures.

Each day, I go to my flickr and my Love To Decorate page and see so many wonderful pictures and interior designs that inspire me. I learn about new talents and new stores each and every day which is an amazing thing.

I am currently looking to put together a small team of people who have the same interests as me. People who Love Decorating, People who love looking at great decorations/landscapes, and those who appreciate impeccable…

Day 5 – Hawaiian Adventure

Originally posted on Love to Decorate:

What I thought would be a simple, relaxed day at the resort, turned into something quite amazing! Amazing for me anyway, because I have never experienced anything like it before.

After getting up, we walked down to the lagoon, got some sun loungers and got our spot in the less crowded corner of the beach. I love it there because the view of the water hitting the rocks is awesome, and because it is so shallow there, you can see all kinds of fish and sea life swimming around from where you sit. It’s awesome!

Today while me and Rico were swimming, I jumped as a turtle swam right in front of my face. So close and so unexpected! I was mainly looking at the colorful fish but this thing took me by complete surprise. It seemed quite big at first, but couldn’t really tell. After a few minutes, I…

Day 4 – Hawaiian Adventure

So much to write about tonight after our adventure today! We woke up bright and early to catch our 9am bus that took us, and a few other hotel guests on a 9 hour tour of Oahu. We pretty much saw most of the island and it was AMAZING!

From our hotel we headed up to the mountains via the H3 freeway, which apparently is the newest of the freeways here on Oahu and cost around 17 billion dollars to create, but in my opinion, it is worth every single dime because the views are just incredible. Unlike anything I have seen before and it is actually a freeway that makes you WANT to drive on it, rather than avoid! It took us all the way through the valleys and we ended up at a mountain lookout that was out of this world. Awesome views…even a few wild cats and…

Another awesome day is coming to a close. Although this is ”Day 3”, it is only our second full day on the island and it was another great one!

1452345_468655693255414_1609419682_n

The weather was a little cloudier this morning. We got up, had breakfast in on our balcony looking at the mountains and I went down to get an Ice Tea at Starbucks and a walk along the beach. The hotel is awesome because it has it’s own Starbucks…that makes me very happy because I’m an addict! So I had my Ice Tea and took a stroll to my little spot over looking the ocean and sat there relaxing until Rico came to meet me after his shower.

The clouds soon disappeared and it was another hot day. Well, I’m not sure if 85F is considered as ”hot” in Hawaii, but compared to 25F back in Chicago…it is tropical! Was so perfect…

Today has been another amazing day. We were woken this morning to a beautiful sunrise outside of our window. Was pretty to watch. Although we fell back asleep again right after and woke up a couple of hours later to more glorious sunshine!

I giggled, because a couple of weeks ago I posted on my Facebook that I was a bit nervous about going in the Ocean because it has just never been my thing. Always afraid of what is lurking around my feet…especially when I cannot see the bottom. However today, I was just simply in Island mood I guess…got right in there and it was great! So nice to swim in the Pacific!

I smell of chlorine. Just been out for a late night dip in the pool and jacuzzi after dinner. Amazing! I have been to quite a few places in the world, but Hawaii is like no other. I wanted to write in my blog, a write up of each day. To share this special trip myself and my hubby are taking together, and to also keep it as a memory for me.

The flight was long. Did you know it is a longer flight time and distance from Chicago to Honolulu than it is from London to Chicago…I found that out over the last few weeks. So much traveling! But all for good reasons and worthwhile in the end.

We landed in Paradise late this afternoon (Friday) and on the drive to our hotel, I was amazed at the place. So different from anywhere I have been before. The Island…
