"Secrets In The Attic" by Bambi Chicque

“Secrets In The Attic” by Bambi Chicque

My recollection of Grand-Mother’s attic

captures a spirit in reflection

to all things I love…

The library in my mind is a confession journey

where every moment in time has prepared me

for today and for tomorrow and my child’s ‘morrow.

 

Sitting for hours upon hours on dusty lounges

Sweeping the thickness away of dirt and cinders to sit

Cracking open rusted metal trinket boxes

Snuggling in a wrapped quilted blanket

Discovering forgotten toys

Pondering through obscure texts with missing pages

Tempting to repair snaggled Stradivarius strings

Counting old worn Confederate paper money

Unlocking frayed jewelry boxes to find hidden gems

Peaking through vintage bags and cases

Collecting a pile of dated novelties to restore

Straightening old stand up mirrors while

trying on shabby clothes and hats and shoes and raincoats

Cleaning faces of cracked antique ball-jointed glass dolls

Separating old and new

Wondering what’s old and new

And…of course, hoping to find a suitcase full of spendable money!

I can still picture myself in Grand-Mother’s attic!

Can you?

MeshedUp created an exquisite mesh Vintage Hall Bench

(with my favorite colours!)

and added male & female poses that are perfect!

Delight comes to mind with the accessories she captured as part of this!

I adore the wavy mesh rug with my Grand-Father’s shoes!

*Wonders how she knew to add those?* 🙂

 Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!!

Rather than adding it to my bedroom, I thought it would be

a perfect addition to my “Country Keep” attic by Scarlet Creative!

This scene brought a warmness to my heart,

Hope it does to you, too!

"Wishing For My Cowboy To Come Home" by Bambi Chicque

“Wishing For My Cowboy To Come Home” by Bambi Chicque

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!

OMG!

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

too!

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!

Hope you enjoy!….BambiSTYLE CARD by Bambi Banner.PS.

Just a little tidbit………..

“Garden Party”

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again.
When I got to the garden party,

They all knew my name.
No one recognized me, I didn’t look the same.
But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself..

Partial Lyrics by Ricky Nelson, R.I.P. 1940-1985

 

Ricky Nelson, singer/song writer & childhood Ozzie & Harriett star,

performed live at Madison Square Garden (1971)

within a venue of music style not to his own and

the crowd began to boo him off the stage.

Soon afterwards he began writing hit songs; including Garden Party

~ which was inspired by his emotional garden experience. 

Moral of the story: 

Never judge or slander a true artist lest they become triumphant

and will prove you wrong by truth and success. 

Besides, who wants to be that type of person anyway?
