You have such good taste! Now about this gown . . .Serph is singular for serphim, or angels. When I was looking through 1930s gowns I saw this one and knew right away this was my Serph gown. This gown is made of silver lame and ostrich feather boas and based on a real 1930s gown.  Whatever use you put this gown too, it's gorgeous and fun. The undergarments are period to the gown and made of satin and lace. The stockings are hand done by me, but based on stockings of the era. Ladies, if you want to take a picture of yourself in this smashing gown, and then drop me a copy of the picture with your name on it, I would be thrilled! I always love seeing where a gown is worn.
Take care!

The More I See YOU .. ~BlakOpal Precious Gems Gown - Sapphire ~

Ah a beautiful night ... the grid a tad buggy, delayed Breezy's entry today alas she does hope it was worth the wait ..((grins))  behold Miss BlakOpal's latest .. One of the first in
 The Precious Gem Collection
BlakOpal Precious Gems Gown - Sapphire

Layers and layers of luminous, faceted gem like sheer fabric creates the flowing skirts of this gown, which can be worn long or short. The sheer gathers are highlighted with embroidered trim, and the skirts are caught around the waist with an asymmetrical wrapping of silk, gathered on the hip and tied with multiple loops before trailing sensually down one thigh. The bodice is strapless, and cut low across the bust, and lower in the back, detailed with a gathered trim. A sheer pointelle stiff lace encircles the shoulders, back, and chest with an elegant sexiness that just begs to be unwrapped. It is tied at each shoulder with long flowing ends that show off the subtle polka-dot and swirl sheer lace pattern. The outfit is designed to look beautiful with or without the flowing bustle. With the bustle, the look is high fashion, victorian … take off the bustle and the silhouette is more slender, ready to be worn at just about any formal occasion. There is also a tea-length skirt that hangs just below the knee in layers and layers of sheer lace. The tea length outfit can be dressed up or down with the wrap, and the matching elbow-length gloves of gathers of more beautiful shimmering fabric. The lace stockings, and coordinating panties finish off the look, making this a fabulously precious outfit from head to toe.

Somthing very Special Just for YOU From Lady Kembri Tomsen !!
Miss Dovie
 "This gown is based on a gorgeous satin bustle wedding dress from about 1895 or so. The bustle and train on that gown are one smooth fall of lush cream colored satin. Then there's a surrounding edging of flat pleats which are echoed around the neck of the gown."

You have probably heard the popular wedding tradition saying before, but not every bride to be knows exactly where it originated from or what the meaning behind the saying is. It is a darling saying and is one of the only wedding traditions in today's society which makes some sense. It is a cute tradition - one which is performed to bring good luck to the newlywed couple.
The traditional saying is:
Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.
A sixpence is a coin that was minted in Britain from 1551 to 1967. It was made of silver and worth six pennies. This wedding tradition can be traced back to England, and many sources say that it began sometime in the Victorian Era. Each item in this sort poem represents a good luck token for the bride - if she carries them, it is said her marriage will have good fortune.
Something Old:
The old item has several different meanings, but one general theme: a link of continuity from the bride's past. Some say this is a desire to remain connected with your family even after you established a family of your own. Other sources say it represents the life you are leaving behind. Another idea is that the tradition of family values and the connection family brings is being passed down to you. It is safe to say that all of these assumptions are correct; the bride is leaving behind her past to start a new beginning, but not to forget where she has been. Things you can use for the something old theme are: jewelry from your mother, grandmother or great-grandmother, an old wedding photo from your family, a love letter from your father to your mother, a picture of your parents in your purse, an old handkerchief, a childhood pillow to hold your rings, a piece of lace sewn into the hem of your gown.
Something New:
 means optimism and hope for the future. It conveys the message that you and your husband are creating a new union that will endure the test of time. Many brides choose to use their wedding gown, flowers or rings to symbolize the "something new" in this tradition.
Something Borrowed:
Again, there are several meanings behind borrowing an item from a friend or relative. Some sources say borrowing something is borrowing happiness from a happily married woman, so that their happiness will carry over to the new bride. Other sources have said it is symbolizes the love and adoration you have for the person from whom you have borrowed the item from. If you borrow an item from your happily married grandmother or mother, you can fulfill both of these meanings. Doing this lets your parents (or grandparents) know that you admire their marriage and the respect they have for each other and that you hope to have an equally happy marriage. The borrowed item also signifies to the bride that she can always count on her friends and family for support. Items that can be used for the something borrowed theme could be: family jewelry, a prayer book from your mother or grandmother, strands of pearls, or your parent's cake cutting set.
Something Blue:
The color blue has been connected to weddings for centuries as a symbol of love, modesty, fidelity, good luck, purity and loyalty. Many brides incorporate this color into their clothing, by either wearing a blue stoned jewelry item or wearing a blue garter. However for a modern spin, you could use blue toe nail polish, blue eye shadow, a blue ribbon tied into your flowers, blue underwear, even wear light blue shoes! The possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination.
A Lucky Sixpence:
 A sixpence in the bride's shoe represents wealth and financial security. For optimum fortune, the sixpence should be worn in the left shoe. This tradition may date back to the Scottish tradition of the groom placing a silver coin in his shoe for good luck. Many companies sell keepsake sixpence pieces for weddings.
Brides have been honoring the something old, new borrowed, blue tradition for centuries. Although these items are supposed to bring good luck to the bride, many brides are following this tradition to honor people close to them on their wedding day.
Thank YOU for stopping by .. enjoy !
Cya next Time !

Hourglass of Time and Life Poem
by Claire Knight

Hourglass of Time
is birth a blank page? or a weighty tome
crammed full of ingrained wisdom
and lesson plans to draw on
as we climb the hill
of learning and
striving until
on the peak
we turn:
a change of
view sliding
down with ease
the relentless decline
grains of truth spill between
our hands until the sands run out
and the tome of life swells with more pages

Mermaid or Perhaps a Real Live Sea Nymph?

Deep Deep below the  Waves of Ocean Herself swims a Most special Creature
Mermaid  or perhaps a Real Live Sea Nymph?
Breezy shall you be the one to decide
This beautiful collection
*+.RP.+* SeaRose_Blue
is by CelestialRay Serpente

 The Stunning hair Breezy is wearing is called
The Dagon "hairstyle" by Tekelili Tantalus is inspired by the Lovecraftian entity of the same name, an ancient sea god of terrible power, worshipped by Lovecraft's Deep Ones. Dagon is made from a mixture of sculpted and traditional prims, has ornaments that change color in sections for a vast amount of possible looks, and a bit of animation (sculpted and texture) to bring it to life.
Nereids in Myth
Nereids were nymphs of the sea in Greek mythology. The ancient Greek poet Hesiod states that the Nereids were the daughters of Nereus (a sea god) and Doris (an Oceanid). In addition, the poet claims that there were fifty of these nymphs. Other sources (such as Homer's Iliad) indicate that the Nereids lived with their father in the sea.
Hesiod's Theogony is also our source for the names of the Nereids. This poem, which is devoted to describing the birth of the Greek gods and goddesses features a beautiful passage
 that lists these sea-nymphs:
"Proto, Eukrante, Amphitrite, and Sao,
Eudora, Thetis, Galene, and Glauke,
Kymothoe, Speio, Thoe, and lovely Halia,
Pasithea, Erato, and Eunike of the rosy arms,
graceful Melite, Eulimene, and Agaue,
Doto, Proto, Pherousa, and Dynamene,
Nesaia, Aktaia, and Protomedeia,
Doris, Panope, and beautiful Galatea,
Hippothoe the lovely and Hipponoe of the rosy arms,
Kymodoke, who, with Kymatolege and Amphitrite
the fair-ankled, easily calms the waves
in the misty sea and the gusts of stormy winds,
Kymo, Eione, and fair-wreathed Halimede,
laughter-loving Glaukonome and Pontoporeia,
Leiagora, Euagora, and Laomedeia,
Poulynoe, Autonoe, and Lysianassa,
Euarne of the lovely body and unblemished face,
Psamathe of the graceful build, and splendid Menippe,
Nesso, Eupompe, Themisto, and Pronoe,
and Nemertes, whose mind is like that of her father.
These were the daughters born to blameless Nereus,
fifty of them, all wise in deeds of perfection."
There are quite a few recognizable names on this list. And indeed, many of these sea-nymphs did play important parts in mythology. Some notable Nereids are Amphitrite, Galatea, Psamathe, and Thetis.
Ssejhog  —  by J.W. Waterhouse
Although often classified as a Pre-raphaelite for his style and themes, Waterhouse is truly a Neo-Classic painter. Some of Waterhouse's earlier works were focused on Italian themes and scenery, reflecting his love for his birth place. Later on, his works picked up the styles and classical themes of Pre-raphaelites such as Alma-Tadema and Frederick Leighton. Waterhouse went on to paint well over 200 paintings depicting classical mythogolgy, historical and literary subjects, particularly those of Roman mythology and classic English poets such as Keats and Tennyson. Femme fatale is a common theme in his works, as most are of beautiful elegaic women and of many men are victims.
Somehow this seems like a fine place to close .. 
You decide ..Breezy likes the thought to wear the Drama and dream to Live the Fantasy ..

Absinthe: The Legend of the Green Fairy

The 2010 Fantasy Faire is exciting and going Strong
~Fancy Fairy~
Deadly Absinthe Faery dress & wings
skin sold seperate
all created by
~Violaine Villota~
Fancy Fairy
Widely known throughout a specific part of the world's societies, the Green Fairy has, until recently, been a legend of darkness, horror and hallucinations. The pages of her history include characters such as Roman charioteers, Parisian Bohemian artists and French courtiers. Although the nickname of "Green Fairy" is only 200 years old, her given name is none other than "Absinthe".

Although absinthe has been around for thousands of years, been mentioned in Egyptian papyri and early Syrian texts, it is often thought to have been invented in 1797. In actuality, Dr. Pierre Ordinaire invented a modern form of absinthe. Since its modern rebirth, absinthe has been a medical miracle, a soothing tonic, a hallucinatory aid and the "devil's handiwork".
As a medicinal tonic, it was used to cure everything from colic to migraines, intestinal worms to epilepsy. In the past, it has been used as a water purifier by soldiers in the French Army's Africa campaigns, as well as by a renowned courtier to a French king for an upset stomach. Due to its "magical curative powers" and green color, the French named this medical marve
 "the Green Fairy".
Classified as an alcoholic drink, it has been prohibited in many countries, only recently coming back from the underground. However, the act of drinking absinthe is buried in tradition and steeped in legend.
In her infancy and later, the Green Fairy became the Muse for artists, liberating their minds. She challenged poets to create original, fantastic pieces for the ages. She urged painters to put brush to canvas and create provoking masterpieces - rebellious, experimental works of art that pushed conventional puritans to see the world anew. In short, the Green Fairy prompted, taunted, teased and whispered to countless members of the world to be more than society said they were - to share what was inside them in new and exciting ways.

Time has changed fact and fiction into a heady mix of myth and legend. Many of the stories surrounding the Green Fairy have been of someone losing their mind, killing, hurting, etcetera; those stories were, in part, the cause of absinthe being removed from the store shelves. However, recent studies have sense shown that the hallucinatory factors, long thought to be caused by thujone (one of the ingredients), were actually caused by the fact that absinthe is 140 proof.
Whether the Green Fairy truly transforms or just stupefies the drinkers can only be decided by being there in the moment, but the time-honored ritual of preparation lives on - waiting for her to spread her wings.Green Devil provides information, tips and kits on the making and history of absinthe throughout the ages. Learn more about the allure this beverage has held over the centuries or make your own absinthe alcohol and find out for yourself.
She is waiting for You .. Some where at he bottom of an Absinthe Glass
or Perhaps The Sea , till next time.
