The American Countryside

027ps2

There’s a bit of excitement in the air as the month draws to a close when the doors will open for the next round of the Arcade.  The gallery is now up, but I’ve not really had a chance to sit and go through it just yet.  Though what I’ve seen so far in the blogs and flickr it’s another great round of amazing stuff starting with another set that I’m showing today by Hive.

The American Countryside gacha is just fantastic. There are 17 commons and 2 rares, which are the barn and the shed and the reward for hitting the machine 25 times is the fence kit that has a secondary color option on touch.  The two rares have a texture change option — for the barn: the bottom front panel and for the shed: the side displaying a faded american flag.

So many wonderful pieces to use as a single unit or as a complete set to decor your own homes.

Have a great Saturday!

Enjoying the birds sing

Snapshot_017ps2

Doing a second post today as I’ve been trying to catch up a little in the last days I’ve been able to log.  What I am showing is this delightful garden set by unKindness, which is available at this round of Collabor88. There’s so much you can do with this set, either indoors or outdoors and the pieces range from 1 land impact to 5 and benches have about 10 sitting animations.  The other decor items being featured are the little birds chandelier and the twisted oak bird bath, which are new releases for Whimsical.  These two come in a light or dark version.

Just in case you missed me in the picture… I’m right there on the ground enjoying the summer heat as the birds sing a melody. Only in Second Life can I really enjoy being outside in 80 and above degrees Fahrenheit weather.  I’m wearing a boho top and denim skirt by [Lakshmi] available now at the ongoing round of On9. You have 3 more days to catch the great designs and savings at this event.

A day out in the country

011ps2

Today I am featuring the upcoming new release by JIAN of their lively labs that will be at the upcoming September round of The Arcade.  These are just a few of the dogs in the collection… the animated ones and if you think these are cute wait until you see the static decor ones.

The complete collection consists of 19 dogs, 16 commons and 3 rares with 1 reward to collect after you play their machine 25 times.  There are 4 rezzed wandering pups, 4 worn companion pups, 4 held ones and 4 static decor pups. Then there is 3 animated adult labs that are rare.  The decor pups are not shown in this post, but I can tell you as mentioned above they are cute and just adorable.  The colors of the dogs are white, chocolate, black and golden, which I’ve made sure to feature one of each color in this post.

Besides the static ones all the animals have unique little things they do. For instance the adult animated worn companions are idle, walk, runs, chases its tail, pants, barks and digs in the dirt as shown here. I really loved seeing this as it just brought it to life for me.  To give you another idea the small companion pups are idle, walk, run, pant and bark as well as yawn and scratch its ears as they walk with your avatar.

I can’t wait to show you the rest soon!

She was a brat in his eyes

015 Reverie22

Yep, a spoiled annoying ill mannered child here… laughs.  I used to get annoyed with this guy that I was once involved with.. who would on occasion call me a brat. I’m absolutely sure he thought that I was  a bit spoiled at times.  In the sense that I was used to getting my own way… petulant at best if I didn’t get it either. I know it.

In any case, today I rather think that I was an adorable charming brat, because truth be told I’m not about to change now and I rather like me a lot.❤

Taking a moment to myself

SL 001

Over the next few weeks my time in-world is going to be a little limited, but I really needed to come in and do one more post for  the “In Your Shoes” event that is ongoing now  and will end on August 21st.  Please remember, that 30% of the proceeds from this will be donated to the Mexican Diabetes Association in support with the Virtual Miss Latin America organization.

Hope to see you soon again.
