A sort-of new release at ~Tea Lane~

After many requests to please, please, pretty please put the casual basics back up, they’re finally available in-world again. Now you can grab the buttondown shirt, jeans, and capris if you’d missed them the first time around. I have to say, I think this display is cuter than last time, too!

Keep an eye out, I’m halfway planning a post explaining the ways to wear it. It’s a versatile set that can be tucked in, untucked, or worn under (or over) lots of other things. Right now, I’m having fun wearing it under Mina.

I’m so pretty!!

Have you ever offered to help someone out with something you’re pretty decent at, only to have them sort of hem and haw and just skip right over the fact that you offered help? It can be an awkward moment. You wonder if you offended them, if you should have just kept your mouth shut. Maybe they didn’t realize you were offering to help them… Maybe they’re just snotty and you didn’t realize it…

There are so many possibilities in a situation like this. I love finding out that the reality is that I’m just a total goofball. It takes all the blame and drops it into my lap, leaving the person I was confused about looking graceful and kind.

lashesfarI know, you’re wondering what I’m babbling about this time. fine, I have pictures! Last night, I got an IM from Renee Lowenhart telling me about an L lucky chair at Zero Style. The problem is that I was mostly naked, sorting inventory. So I grabbed a clothing folder, dropped it onto myself, and TP’d happily away to grab my hair.

While everything was rezzing, we got to talking. Her friend Hawks (whose last name escapes me at the moment *blush*) commented on my interesting eyelashes. I did a quick look at them, and realized they were some lashes I’d gotten as a gift over Christmas. Gorgeous lashes, from the Stringer Mausoleum. So, I tell them that I’d been sorting inventory and hadn’t taken them off yet.

Renee tells me that she’s never been able to fit lashes, so of course I offered to help her. She sort of ignored the offer, and I was left wondering why, but whatever. It could be she just doesn’t like lashes, and that’s her excuse. Not a big deal, right?

Fast forward to 20 minutes later, when I’m back on my pose stand, sorting inventory. I zoom into my face, and see… this.

Do I even have to explain how hard I laughed? Yes, those are my lashes sticking out of my eyeballs. I IM’d Renee laughing, saying no wonder she didn’t want my help! She was so relieved. She said she didn’t know what to say, because I make such tiny little earrings, but I thought my lashes looked good like this!

I’m telling you, people. Sometimes I shouldn’t be let out of my workshop!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Teagan…
