Home office

I’m back this evening with another post and again it’s a mixture of fashion and decor.  I’ll begin with the home decor items as this is my first post introducing you to this year’s Relay For Life Home & Garden Expo that just opened yesterday and will end on June 4th.  It’s an annual event that raises money for Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL). The Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event, and RFL of SL is one of its virtual counterparts. Please visit both the Home & Garden Expo website and the RFL of SL website for more information.

The exhibitors participating at this event are required to have two 100% donation items at the Expo. These items must be new and exclusive to the Expo for the duration of the event.  Bloggers for this event are assigned to a particular sim and they are required to blog any donation items from their sim first before they can blog any other items. I believe there is a total of 9 sims for this event and I happened to get assigned to one that had relatively few creators and while I was a bit disappointed that none of these creators had blogger boxes its actually given me a little freedom to blog who ever had boxes out at other sims.  That being the case I am going to try and do my very best to feature as many creators as I can during the event that will include a mixture of donated and other items.

Today’s post has items by World of Wood, a store that specializes in quality wooden homes, lodges, cabins and furniture.  I just really liked this office set and bookshelves that come with several texture options for the wood.  I like dark wood so I chose mahogany.  Theory is a store that carries classic and contemporary furnishings and they have the English chest on barley twist legs and the brass box terrarium at the event.  The last item featured from this event is the trellis with orange climbing roses just outside the window by TerraShop, a store that makes quality mesh flowers and plants.

Then I’m featuring items by 22769, a well known store that carries a little bit of everything in home and garden decor.  They are participating in a few events this month. The Colonial lounge set is their release for The Challenge Event.  The set includes the bench, side table, elephant picture and the pineapple lamp.  The plant on the stand and on the chest are their release for this month’s round of The Liaison Collaborative, which I’ve previously featured in another recent post. The plate with donuts is from their Sugar Shock gacha set at The Gacha Garden. If you want to see the key for this set, visit here.  The cute puppy underneath the bench is by {Your Dreams}, and is at Tres Chic.

If you’re still reading at this point, thank you! Most of the fashion items are by creators participating at this month’s round of Tres Chic.  Hair by Sintiklia, with this lovely dress by Clef de Peau and watch by [Zoom].  The heels I’m wearing is a new release by Empire at this round of Collabor88. The pose used is by an lar [poses] available at Tres Chic.

Peruse the credits for everything else shown in the pictures.

Sweet friendships always refreshes the soul

Morning and Happy Friday!! I hope your weekend is off to a good start and while I have somewhat of a busy one with things I have to get done I’m looking forward to mine.

Today’s post is a collaboration with fellow blogger and someone I now call friend, Jules, who has her own blog at Sunshine & Sparkles.  It’s an appropriate name for her, as her personality is all sunshine and sparkles and I really like that about her. Plus she shares my sun sign of Aries, with our birthdays just days apart, so we’re finding that we have a lot in common including our feisty nature.  I think she has more patience than me and might not be as stubborn as I can be at times.  I know that’s hard to believe, but alas it’s true as much as I hate to admit it.  I do try to reign it in, because it’s not really endearing qualities to have.

Anyways, check out credits below for the amazing stuff we’re showing and as soon as Jules posts I’ll link up her blog once again here.

Have a fabulous rest of the day!

We’ve all gone a little mad here

It’s early in the morning or really late as they both apply in this case, so I am not going to ramble at all.  I’m just going to point you to credits, to get all the info on the two items I’m showcasing.  The pretty greenhouse by N4RS and the Mad Hatter party gacha  by SPELL.

Have a great one!

Test run

Nope, it’s not my wedding, but it can be yours as this month’s theme at On9 is all about weddings.  Everything besides the spring lights pergola by unKindness available now at FaMESHed and wildflowers of Queen Ann’s lace by Heart is at this months event of On9.

See the credits below for everything shown.

Out in the country somewhere

I actually have one more for 6th Republic and it’s to show this sidecar motorcycle from Anhelo, which is just super awesome.  The set actually includes a few more pieces like a tent, cot and tree stump with some decor that are great for some role-play scene.  Though I think you’ll agree with me that this sidecar motorcycle is a beauty on its own and great for a trip into the country, which Elton and I did just that.

I’m also showcasing the decor pieces by Tentacio, which is part of their Stockholm Trip Gacha at 6th Republic as well.  The hair is by DeLa and will be at the upcoming round of Tres Chic.

Have a great one!

Special moments

I had another post planned for today, but then I realized that 6th Republic is going to end in just another four days and I wanted to get this post in and not leave it to last minute.  If you haven’t been you’re missing out on some great stuff.

Besides items from 6th Republic I am also showing some fashion items from a few individual creators participating in other events as well, including this raven wall decor that you can grab only today at a bargain for Hello Tuesday.

Until next time.

In a field of wildflowers

Happy Sunday!! Plus Happy Mother’s Day to any of you who have this honor.  I had an early breakfast with mine and two of my sisters so it’s been a great morning already.

Today I’m showing Merak’s participation in the 6th Republic Event that is open for just another week.  Eva’s house is inspired by what the creator described as “authentic beauty of Santorini in Greece,” and what are small villas that you can see in all of Greece’s islands. It’s a one room house that has a porch with a land impact of 54. The set also includes some linked ceramic pots that are at the center of my picture. Not shown is the bed that is also part of the set, but seriously go check out all the great items before the event is over.

Then I’m also showing some fabulous landscape items by Heart Gardens. I’ve been a fan of their work since the early days of my SecondLife.  If you’re not familiar with them you really need to go visit them to see the variety of landscape items they have for every season.  Their recent releases have just been outstanding, like the wild flowers echinaceas shown here and currently at this round of FaMESHed, but the rest you can find at the main store.

That’s it for now, have a lovely Sunday!
