The Legend Of The Nutcracker

The real world just doesn’t make sense to me anymore. ~ Clara

Trans-Siberian Orchestra ~ Nutrocker Is it bad of me to wanna headbang to this music?

Every year at Christmas time, I treat my girls and granddaughters to a night at the ballet. We dress up to the nines, and off we go to see the Nutcracker performed by the local professional ballet studio. I love ballet. Then again I love opera too. Does that make me weird?

According to legend, a nutcracker represents power and strength and serves like a trusty watch dog guarding your family against evil spirits and danger. A fierce protector, the nutcracker bares its teeth to the evil spirits and serves as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill. I did not know this. And, no, nutcrackers were not made to crack nuts either. You learn something new every day.

Be kind to one another. Till we meet again♥

The Winery

Live a life that completely belongs to you. A life that embraces who you are and honors your dreams and desires. A life that lifts you up and supports your healing. Live a life that is currated by you and not some societal expectations.

The Winery is one of the first builds I placed out on Little Swan Lake back in July of 2020. Yeah. It’s taken me this long to get to this point. Slow and steady wins the race 🙂 Modeled after a combination of wineries in Indiana, it has become a favorite of mine. The Bozeman Barn, by Barnsworth Anubis, has 3 rooms, a loft, and a screened-in room. Following are a few photos of the interior done up for the holiday season. Be kind to one another. Till we meet again♥
