Fantasy Faire's Arrival

Early one spring morning, the mists began to lift. Ethana rose with them. Through the long year her world had slept, or so it was thought. Each year it returned, changed, whether by its travels through the mists, or the other realms it graced. She was glad to be back...
Each evolution was a surprise, the form the earth beneath her feet would take, the colour of the sky, it was all new. Emerging from the mists was a revelation in every sense, the Fairelanders could be altered along with their surroundings, viewing their new world with new eyes. Such had been Ethana's choice this time. Opening her eyes to see a soft shimmering haze replacing the mists, gentle strains of music resolving into the calming lap of cool water against stone.
Walking around the calm and quiet of her new world, she stumbled upon evidence of its heart and purpose, and the name her new surroundings had taken. "Compassion..." she murmured, her voice melding with the whispering from the willows all around. The air around her echoed with it, seeming to come from all sides, a comforting embrace.
"Compassion..." she murmured again, "That feels right." She span on the spot, seeing more and more, taking in the domed buildings, the towering statue, the multitude of lilipads. Spinning and dancing,  her new body delighting with each movement, each sight, each feeling. This was the beauty of the Fairelands. As much as they transformed in their appearance, and the Fairelanders along with them, they were forever unchanged in spirit, heart and purpose. Come and join them. They are waiting to welcome you home. 

Itttssss thhhhheeeee MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR. The Fantasy Faire is back!

Blogger Challenge : I remember


One of the blogger challenges from the Fantasy Faire is "I remember". Thinking back across Faires past. Back in 2014 I started making little videos - didnt manage to get all of the sims that year, as like an idiot I saved the files on top of each other, and then they were gone. 
Each year I walk the sims and capture what I can of their beauty before they fade into the mists. Capture them so we can look back on them and remember. 
The mists will recede again on the 19th, and we can all help make a difference, enjoying the beauty while raising money for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society.
