So, Your Majesty, What did you do at the Faire today? (My New Shiny Blog Challenge)

Seriously: Why do you keep asking me that question?shopped, of course! I shopped like a Queen!

Oh!

The Penguins! Remember the penguins?

Well, just as I turned the corner from the penguins, I ran into this amazing artisan. Her name is Willow Brandybuck, and I’d bought her wares once before, at a Tolkein Fair somewhere outside of Faerie.

I was amazed to see she has a modest little stall in one of the Fairelands Realms.

In the middle of winter, I of course create Spring.

In the middle of Winter, I of course created Spring, just to show off some of her beautiful wares. I am wearing her gorgeous Mystic Dreams Tiara and Necklace here, and the wearable couch is from Boudoir. I think the penguins were impressed!

I don't know how long I sat there enjoying Spring in Winter.

I don’t know how long I sat there, enjoying Spring in Winter. But before I move on, I should tell you about the beautiful dress from Evangeline Miles. I am not a brown Queen. I do not particularly even like Brown. But Evie’s Closet can make brown look amazing! Just look at the beautiful wings she designed to go with the dress.

Willow’s beautiful jewellery complements this dress so well!

But since my rediscovery of Willow is My New Shiny, let’s get back to the jewellery! Not only is Willow a lovely person, she has generously given a beautiful gift which you can win if you complete the Fairelands Hunt, along with a load of other swag. Just remember not to lose Willow’s acorn, and all will be well.

Later, I relaxed at home at the Treehouse, on my new couch, still wearing Willow's lovely ensemble.

All of Willow’s designs have this ethereal, Elvish quality to them: I’ll always associate her with Tolkein since I first met her at the Tolkein Fair. But my rediscovery of her this week was such a joyful moment.

The couch, by the way, is called Justine. She is made by Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods fame, under the company name of Libertine. She was expensive, but I think she will be worth it—she seats up to 12 avatars at once, and she has many, many animations and wonderfulnesses inside her that I have yet to explore.

I even invited my mom over for a group photo with Dyisi!

I even invited my mom over for a group photo on Justine with Dyisi. Kind of funny, since Gwyneth and her mom haven’t been reunited since Gwyneth discovered that Lady Siansa was her mom. But a fun way to showcase the versatility of this couch. Sia promises a style card for me, and I will get that to you eventually.
