Chipped Fingernails

Do you remember your old school days when someone would run their fingernails down the chalkboard and you could feel every nerve in your body scream NOOOOOO!!!!!   I'm not THAT bad yet but I'm getting there.   It's winter.   I hate winter.   27 years of Minnesota kinda did me in.  So about this time of year if you listen carefully you just might be able to hear my fingernails clawing at the walls of the house.   LET ME OUT INTO THE SUN!  LET ME OUT INTO THE GARDEN!   I want nothing more than to dig in the dirt and plant.   Even better I have about 25 terra-cotta and ceramic planters and pots that I've collected over the years and maybe 3 or 4 trips to local nurseries in the area will finalize all my flower purchases to design each one JUST right.  

Somebody tell me...what in the heck do you do in the winter months that even remotely compares to the satisfaction of spring and summer?  Not a darn thing!  So here it is the beginning of February and I just 'might' be jumping the gun a bit but's SL.   It can be a glorious summer morning TOMORROW if I so desire!  And I DO!  

The February July group gift is out.  It's called Field of Blossoms and with the texture changer in it you have a choice of 9 different flowers.   It's copy/mod and only 1 LI!  Please wear your group tag in order to get it.   TP right to the gift (CLICK HERE).  

Right in front of the group joiner and group gift is a new release.   The "I Love You Rock Garden" is a beautiful addition to your outdoors AND a plus...there is a very romantic kissing animation in it. Perfect Valentine's Day gift for your honey maybe??   It's transfer so can be easily given as a gift (even if you DO benefit from it!).   It's only 4 LI and 40L.  

Ahhh.....the gardening begins!   Guess I better go get my nails done tomorrow and TRY to stay sane for at least another two months until spring graces itself upon me.   Hello pitcher of Sangria!

Take care Fussbudgets!     Love, Pet

Mesh Galore

I looked at my blog today and WHERE in the HECK have I been???!!!   No posts for all the new Christmas posts at all since last summer!   It must come as no surprise to you (and certainly not me either) but I'm always late and far behind in posting everything.  New Year's Resolution and this one isn't meant to be broken either!  - KEEP UP WITH THE BLOG!

I certainly hope each and every one of you had a great holiday season though.  Cheers to a prosperous and healthy upcoming 2017 also!

A quick note to update you on what's happening at Persnickity these days.    My 'SO kind, talented, PATIENT' partner Cern has been creating some of the greatest mesh items and people are noticing all around the grid.  I'm posting a couple pictures below so you can see for yourself if you haven't been in the store lately.

There is SO much coming in the next month - lots of shabby chic new furniture that I'm sure you'll LOVE like I do!   In the meantime, stop in at the mainstore (click HERE) for TP or check out Persnickity on Marketplace (click HERE) for the link.  

Love to all and belated holiday wishes from Pet and Cern!   (Yes...this really is the way two ADULTS behave!)

Splish Splash

Open up the closet and what do you see?   Old boots! lots OF them, in all sizes and colors.  They belonged to my children but they bring back memories of my own childhood... of playing outside in rain storms with the neighborhood kids.  (Lightning?  NO!)  These storms exhibited nothing but rain and lots of it!  The street in front of my parent's house would become a huge playground for all of us and the immediate task at hand would be to kick the leaves over the storm drain preventing the water from escaping. We would play outside for hours, wallowing in the cold water and making sure each and every one of us was thoroughly SOAKED.  Then...somebody's mother would burst our balloon and beckon their child to call it a day and come inside. Great memories of good clean wholesome fun, but also the distinct nightmare of soaking wet feet and the beginnings of a cold the next day!   Rainboots.   MY memory!

Ahhh.....finally!   A use for all those old boots and a  unique one at that!   The Rainboots Planter comes filled with yellow and orange marigolds and can be mounted anywhere on a flat back surface such as a wall, gate or fence.    Only 7 LI, transfer/mod and can be found at Persnickity Mainstore (click HERE)  or on the Marketplace (click HERE) for only 75L.   Keep your memories close to you because there comes a time when that's all you'll have.

Whiffs of Spring

I can smell it in the air.   There are two seasons that have distinct smells when they are approaching. Fall has that crisp clean smell - it brings back memories of back-to-school shopping and homework! Spring on the other hand has a fresh, newly showered smell and feel. The days are brighter and the sparkling rain is a sign of flowers about to burst through the ground.  A sigh of relief after the long dark cold winter.  Let the planting begin as my body gravitates towards the great outdoors and out of the house!

A few new items at Persnickity to celebrate the beginning of spring/summer 2016!

Adorable!   The Vintage Tricycle Planter is so charming and will add such character to your outdoors! It comes with the flower filled bucket also.  It sells for 75L.

How about breakfast or afternoon tea at your new Wrought Iron Patio Set?   Has a 'bistro' feel to it which I adore.   The chairs have 7 sitting animations in them and are only 1 LI each!  The table is only 2 LI so you don't have to worry about your prim count on this one!   It sells for 50L.

I LOVE adding things to the garden.  Flowers are beautiful enough but these Flower Markers will add that extra 'oompf' announcing what's there.   You get 12 markers, 4 are pink, 4 are purple, and 4 are green.   There is a variety of words on them, such as Petunias, Roses, Lilies, Beauty, Grow!, etc. They sell for 50L and are copy/mod.

How about something new and fresh for the indoors too?!  Open up the windows, let the fresh air in, while your new Lacy Curtains adorn the windows.  They are texture changing so just touch for your choice of six different colors of the flowered lacy pattern.  LOVE these!  They sell for 50L and are copy/mod.

All items are available on Marketplace (click here) and in the mainstore (click here).  Now...on to spring cleaning.   Blah!   Love you all!  Pet

Love is In the Air

Love permeates life.   Even Second Life.   It's not too often that you meet someone in SL who hasn't 'fallen' for somebody along the way.   Everybody makes their own rules as to where it goes and what it means to them - some keep it in SL and others cross over into real life.   Either way, Valentine's Day is one day to show that special someone that you care.  I know it's cliche but it really isn't about the cost, but it IS the thought that counts.   Just reach out and tap them on the heart to say "Hey!  I'm thinking of you today"    

Some ideas available at Persnickity:


Wall decals are 25L each and copy/mod
My Heart is Your Heart Pillows - 25L
Forever Love Wall Art - 35L
Cup Talk - 35L

So much more on Marketplace (click HERE) or inworld at the main store (TP HERE)

Have a happy Valentine's Day and hugs to you all!  Luv ya - Pet

Moving the store to another location.  *sighs*    This is when my "Bewitched" brain kicks in and I see Elizabeth Montgomery twitching her nose and in one second....her chore is accomplished perfectly!   Elizabeth Elizabeth....why oh why did you plant the seed of hope that I too could have a part of my face jerk back and forth and voila!  Dreaded tasks done!  I look up and WHY is my store still there and nothing has changed???   Elizabeth!  You're a fake!   Pet!   GET MOVING!!   Two weeks later....Persnickity is sitting comfortably on Mon Cheri, owned by Freya Olivieri, creator extraordinaire and best friend of six years.  I love it here and hope you do too.  

NEW this month!

Rainbow Flamingo - 50L    3 LI    Transfer

This colorful flamingo who waters the flowers longs for a place in your garden!   Touch for on/off water control.
