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!

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

It's the Best Time of the Year

Have a holly jolly Christmas....It's the best time of the yeaarrrrr.......   Oh!  Sorry!   Burl Ives, Nat King Cole and Andy Williams are in the house (and if you don't know they are ICONS on the Christmas song list you need to hit Google right now)!!!    

I LOVE Christmas.   I'd like to think I'm a good caring person all year-round, but when I flip the calendar over to December a 'feeling' sweeps over me.  Nothing and I mean NOTHING can rattle me. I'm filled with gratitude for what I have, immense love for who I have in my life and an overwhelming compassion for those who don't have much of either.    Give to those who need it and tell your loved ones just how much you cherish them.   My house is open to family and friends 24/7. Sitting at home with nothing to do??  - Come over!   Hungry?  Thirsty?  Three cabinets full of board games.   Pick something that looks good.   Talk.  Laugh.   LAUGH!  This is what the holidays are all about for me. The best gift to give?   Yourself.  That's what I want for Christmas.  All I want for Christmas is youuuu.....  Hmm....I see Mariah Carey is here too.  

Back to SL!   Some new releases this year for Christmas and winter:

And soooo much more at the Persnickity Christmas Shoppe, now open through January 1st.  Click (HERE) for your teleport or click (HERE) for Persnickity on Marketplace.   

Please have a safe and happy holiday season!  Love you!!  Pet (Petunia908 Pinklady)

New Look!

New eyes - I needed NEW EYES!   I don't mean avatar eyes either - MY eyes.   I'm quite aware that I am a victim of habit.    I get 'comfortable' with my life, walking the same steps every day, eating the same ol' breakfast every know the feeling.    It's called 'life'.   But every now and again I think its good to shake things up.  I did just that last week.   I took the Persnickity mainstore, rotated it on its side, and shook it up until everything tumbled out.    There I was staring at a HUGE pile of furniture and assorted home decor, wondering NOW what do I do???  

OK... I muttered....(yes I seem to be talking to myself more and more these days)....mix it up, match it up, and build completed individual room displays instead of scattering items all around the store.   Similar to a fashion stylist who possesses the creative ability to see the final outcome before all the clothes are purchased.  You can now walk into the store and 'see' my vision of the final outcome of the room.  I'm not so egotistical to think my customers are unable to decorate their own homes and would even WANT to copy an entire room from the store!   Quite the contrary!     If you are looking for a kitchen item or a certain colored item, its a quick and easy resource to find what you may be searching for.    Marketplace has become my go-to shopping arena now.   It's easy to plug in that keyword in the search engine, hit the search button and voila!    All my choices are presented to me at once.  I've noticed over the last year or so, I have become quite impatient with stores that are disorganized, so I don't shop inworld as much as I used to.   I really WANT to keep my store inworld and whatever I can do to make it an easier shopping experience for you, I will certainly do!

A few peeks into the new lay-out -

Click (HERE) for your direct tp to the mainstore and please!  Let me know what you think of the new design.  I'd LOVE to hear your opinions and suggestions.   Thanks!   Love you all - Pet
