As I was setting up my new ranch area with Trompe Loeil’s new
Raleigh Wedding Barn, I couldn’t help but want to capture the
breathtaking view of the rafters for you to see!
It reminded me of when I was a younger gal playing hide-and-seek
with my cousins at my Grand-Dad’s ranch…….
One day my cousin, Keith, asked if I wanted to climb up in the rafters
of Grand-Dad’s barn and sneak over to his cattle house to see what he does
in there. I had been told by Grand-Dad that I was never allowed over there, so
as a curious youngster I said “yes”! We climbed up into the musky and
dusty loft of the old barn, crawled on our bellies to an open window
(watching out for rattle snakes and scorpions) which
oversaw the cattle house. Just as I peaked over and looked into the
single-lit room, Grand-Dad has just brought a cow through the shoot and shot it!
Remember, my Grand-Dad was not only a farmer and rancher, he also
had a meat market that people drove for miles and miles to buy sides of
beef and special cuts from him.
I let out a loud scream and Grand-Dad instantly chewed Keith out for
dragging me up there. The bottom line to the story is that I have such a heart
for animals – yes, even cows and had no clue how the meats ever ended
up in his marketplace for sale.
I stopped eating beef after that!
The reminder of my family’s many ranches (including the famous 6666 Ranch),
barns, silos, farm houses and country homes is mainly the reason
Trompe Loeil’s Raleigh Ranch
created a pitter-patter to my heart and I knew I would set up a nice
area for my friends and I to enjoy the simple and quainter parts of life
while in SL! This structure is magnificent and I strongly encourage
you to get one of these, along with his Wedding Decor that he created
I had just received Oddity’s new blogger review package with the
cowgirl style outfit – so this was perfect timing for this photo!
Also, Oneword Round Seven Fairytales is coming
March 1st – March 15th!
Black Tulip will have 4 sets of “Dark Fairy” poses that are
breathtaking for all you fairies and roleplay posers!
