There was once a girl who lived a life of luxury and ease. “You’re your mother’s daughter,” people would tell her because she preferred to wander in the lush estate gardens rather than attend to her studies.

While lounging in the garden one morning she  found the intricately carved music box. No one seemed to know where it came from or who it belonged to. She was intrigued with the treasure she’d found, and would spend hours watching the little ballerina twirling on her pointed toes.

One day, returning from the gardens she loved so much, she stopped by her father’s office when she heard him speaking to another man. Her father was interviewing a prospective Captain for his newest ship.

He was a dashing young Spaniard, and her heart skipped a beat when her father introduced her to him.

“Encantado señorita.” he said with a brush of his lips to the back of her hand.

She fell wildly in love with him. All would have ended happily except that he had another love, a mistress she simply couldn’t compete with; after all, how does a mere human compete with the mystery and majesty of the open sea?

“I wish I could be like her, always carefree and dancing.” she said quietly. “Perhaps if was more like this little dancer, he would love me in return.”

What she didn’t know was that the little dancer had made a similar wish once, and had become a captive of the music box until she could be released by another wishing to take her place.

She lives in the music box now, but the girl’s dance is not the happy carefree dance of the previous dancer. Instead her dance is a dance of loss and despair. She dances still, waiting patiently for another to take her place inside the music box.

Be careful what you wish for.. sometimes they come true.

About the music box:

The music box is from Studio Sidhe. It includes colour change script and nine ballerina poses.. both twirling and stationary. You can watch a short youtube video of the box in action here.

This post is filled with random gifts and freebies – both new and old, most of the items shown below are recent freebies, but a couple are no longer available.

Shown above on the left is a camping gift from Umi Usagi. The jacket, shirt, short pants, and belt can be yours for a mere 90 minutes. The stockings are a past subscribe gift from Miel (still in notices!), and boots are a past gift from Nait Smith Designs. The boots are no longer available for free.. sorry. Hair is from JetDoll, skin is from GeEs (not free).

On the right, the focus is on all-out glamour with the Silver sequin gown from Paris Metro (DSN gift) and silver Khan slingbacks from Enkythings. The shoes are a new release, and Enktan Gully, owner of Enkythings, is giving them out for free for a limited time.

Shown above on the left are some cute in-store gifts from Aphrodite Creations. The shoes and tank top are available as free samples, just drop by and pick them up in the shop. The skirt is another great MM win from JetDoll. Seriously, the MM board at JetDoll has had some great prizes lately, you really should stop by and slap it.

On the right is a sweet ensemble from Pixel Dolls. Pixel Dolls has a 10L$ sale going on right now,  stop by and pick up some fantastic bargains on Pixel Doll goods that will soon be retired. The scarf and dress shown above were not free, but were so inexpensive it’s absolutely silly. The shoes were a past gift from Aphrodite Creations.

Although it’s cold here in northwest Florida, we can choose the climate we want in Second Life. Coming from the northeastern US (nope, I’m not a native Florida girl), it just doesn’t seem like Christmas to me if there isn’t snow on the ground.

But that doesn’t mean I need to freeze (even in the northeast), and the fashions I’m showing in this post are definitely hot.

Above is one of the gifts from Blacklace. There are two gift boxes in the shop, and one is filled with several gifts, including loungerie and those famously infamous Blacklace pants.

The fresh, “just in from playing in the snow” skin is from the GeEs Scandinavian line that I’m wearing almost exclusively lately. I love this line of skins! Hairstyle is from Calico Ingman Creations, and comes with the lights which are so much fun, and colour change. You can wear this style after the holidays too, because the lights can be taken off with a simple click of your mouse.

Still in the pink, the pretty ensemble shown above is one of the many, many wonderful gifts being showered upon visitors to Ho Wear. Stop by and pick them up while you still can.

The backdrop is an absolutely perfect waterfall setting from Pocket Gardens. The Castalia waterfall is so versatile. It comes in three sizes with a varying number of prims, and the flowers are colour change via menu. Also included are a hedge prim and alpha ground cover so that everything blends smoothly and seamlessly into your land (or skybox).

Above is one of the other gifts from Blacklace, while Hawk is showing us the December gift from Vitamen.

The green chaise is from Diesel Works, and it’s so versatile. This chaise is loaded with a ton of great poses. Hawk took a turn in the photographers chair (included) and played with it a while, and his comments were, in order, “Wow!” followed immediately by “Lot’s of poses!” (with an accompanying smile).

SD Wears has this sexy number as its prize in the Urban Shopper Candy Cane Hunt which runs through 31 December. It’s not a difficult hunt, and there are some really nice prizes.. so don’t miss it!

In the picture above, I’ve gone totally vintage with Christmas gifts from Ingenue, hair from Vignette, and the wonderful Bergen skin from GeEs.

The Sabrina dress in an icy hue was a Midnight Mania gift. The MM board in Ingenue has been changing featuring a variety of winter and holiday colour prizes; check in regularly so that you don’t miss a thing!

The Hounds-tooth Capelet and Cap are under the Christmas tree right inside the door.. you can’t miss it. Just mouse over the presents until you find the ones with gifts.

I love the Midnight Mania prizes at Grim Bros, I love Grim Bros. The clothes there are well made, unique, and very reasonably priced. If you run a little toward the Goth or Steampunk in your clothing tastes, the styles at Grim Bros are for you!

Above are the amazing Rock It Rudy antlers from the Grim Bros MM Gorilla. But that’s not all you can get, because after all, Grim Bros doesn’t have just any old MM board.. they have a Midnight Mania Gorilla. Be advised that the MM prizes change on a whim.. so the Gorilla might be holding some other special gift when you visit.

The hairstyle I’m wearing is called X-mas Anarchy, and it’s from Hairy Situations. I love the way this mohawk curls around to one side.. very pretty.

Skin is from Coquette in the pictures above and below. The Aurora II line comes with tintable brows, and an “enhanced” option that gives  cleavage like you won’t believe — perfect for those strapless evening gowns we’ll all be wearing to the parties this holiday season.

Next up is this festive ensemble from TeaLane, one of the vanguard shops in Second Life. TeaLane has been setting the standard for affordable fashions for longer than I have been in SL and is often one of the first stops for people new to the grid.

Shown above are two extremely reasonably priced items from TeaLane: the Elsa Sweater (there’s an Erik Sweater for guys too!), and the Recycle Dress (which comes with several stocking colour options). If you can’t afford the 2L$ a pop, not to worry, TeaLane has a lucky chair with the sweaters in a second holiday colour.

Hair shown above is from W&Y, but is available at Savoir Hair. Visit Savoir Hair for top quality dollarbie and freebie hairstyles.
