Pierced Hearts


pierced heart

“You are tired
(I think)
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.
Come with me then
And we’ll leave it far and far away-
(Only you and I understand!)

You have played
(I think)
And broke the toys you were fondest of
And are a little tired now;
Tired of things that break and-
Just tired.
So am I.

But I come with a dream in my eyes tonight
And knock with a rose at the hopeless gate of your heart-
Open to me!
For I will show you the places Nobody knows
And if you like
The perfect places of Sleep.

Ah come with me!
I’ll blow you that wonderful bubble the moon
That floats forever and a day;
I’ll sing you the jacinth song
Of the probable stars;
I will attempt the unstartled steppes of dream
Until I find the Only Flower
Which shall keep (I think) your little heart
While the moon comes out of the sea.”

I want to show you some of the prettiness I found recently at the Shiny Shabby and Uber events.

The dress I know, everyone is blogging, but with good reason – it has the most beautifully delicate lace, beading and floral fringing! Enfant Terrible has made a splash of a return to events all around the grid and I am loving everything she has to offer! You can find it at the amazing Shiny Shabby event along with this lovely hair by Blair at Entwined hair. Blair has some exciting new ombre colour palettes available now too, so check them out!

The monthly Uber event opened today and I found this gorgeous Belleza skin there. I am always on the lookout for Asian-looking skins and this one comes in a variety of beautiful makeup styles.

Finally, I was looking for a neckpiece to complete this look and ended up at The Fantasy Room where I found these heart piercings. I am not usually a fan of heart-shaped jewelry but because these are piercings they somehow moved me and in the end became an inspiration.
