Be a Lion

with 11 comments

 

First blog of the New Year and a lot of my groups have excellent free gifts, as well as there being some smashing things out at FaMESHed. So armed with an anti lag sword, I made my way there and spent out some lindens!

Over to Bob…
“I am on the rock and then I check a stock
I have to run like a fugitive to save the life I live
I’m gonna be Iron like a Lion in Zion
I’m gonna be Iron like a Lion in Zion
Iron Lion Zion
I’m on the run but I ain’t got no gun
See they want to be the star
So they fighting tribal war
And they saying Iron like a Lion in Zion” Bob Marley

I liked the “Be a Lion” frame which is from an unKindness gacha, placed it on the wall and the whole scene then fell into place. The forest cats aren’t co-operating on the lion front, though, and I’m only interested in reading a book so we aren’t doing Bob proud at the moment!

“Owl,” said Rabbit shortly, “you and I have brains. The others have fluff. If there is any thinking to be done in this Forest–and when I say thinking I mean thinking–you and I must do it.”

The Tale of Maplemoor Woods

with 10 comments

raindale-maplemoor-gacha-the-crossroads-event

 

You won’t find Maplemoor Woods on any map, try as you might. It’s a secret place and you can only get to it through a portal. This portal lets through children and those grown ups who still retain the magic of childhood in their hearts. Maplemoor exists in an eternal late spring where young animals and birds are born and brought up, they make their home in the woods. But they’re not like any creatures you’ve seen before. For instance, they really appreciate afternoon tea! They’re not always polite, as you’ll see in the pictures – the bullfinch has landed on the teatime cake and is not even waiting for his slice to be cut.

raindale-maplemoor-gacha-2-the-crossroads-event

Afternoon tea is presided over by the Great Horned Owl, who can move his head all the way around. This is useful to check on visitors who may want an extra place at the table. The mother deer keeps an eye on the proceedings, she has her favourite bridge so she can see everything going on and even if afternoon tea should take place at midnight, she can switch on the lamps. Time has very little meaning in such an enchanted place. Poppies and flowers bloom all the year round and the poppies are not only red but all colours of the rainbow. The ones you see here are yellow.

The kingfisher sits patiently on the portal, his large beak is useful for pulling visitors through, but no doubt he’ll be getting his slice of cake later on. And there’s always a wishing well. Not only for water – as there’s no rivers in the woods – but the well grants wishes to visitors and inhabitants of Maplemoor alike. But be careful what you wish for! And don’t forget, you’ll need an extra wish to get you back home 🙂
