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!

Let’s stay home today

Happy Saturday everyone. I am literally going to stay home most of the day as I have to pack for a short trip away from tomorrow until Thursday.  I am taking a laptop so I’ll get to post as I normally do and be able to log in to SL.  Though I really dislike using a laptop for getting things done in-world so I’m taking advantage of a free day today to get a good portion of my pictures done so all I have to do is fix up credits and post and upload them into flickr.

Today I’m wearing a relatively new hairstyle by Tetra, as it was a previous release at the last round of Uber and can now be found at the main store.  It’s a gorgeous hair that comes in 2 sizes: fitted and unrigged, which means you can resize and reposition the hair as you like.  The top and shorts are new as well and both from recently closed events, so these too can be found at their respective main stores listed in credits. I’ve blogged these shoes before though they’re quite lovely to use over and over again. They’re called Waterlily and are by Empire and still at the N21 event that goes on for a few more days.

The decor I’m featuring is the lounger, which is by Shutter Field in collaboration with Decor Junction.  It’s available in a dark and light version and it’s at the Crossroads event. I must point out that the pose I’m using is my own created specifically to show off the shoes, so it’s not part of the lounger. The other item there as well is the organic rust vases by Merak, which I think can work in just about any decorating style you may choose.

Enjoy the rest of this beautiful day!

Nostalgia

circa-001

This year has been a bit busier than what I remember it being previous years. I know in large it’s due to taking on more blogging commitments and I recognize that simply from the fact that I have yet to open a quarter of my arcade items that were purchased and not given to me as a blogger package.  I really have no problem with it. If I didn’t enjoy this I simply wouldn’t do it.

I also have not had time to unpack some of the advent or hunt gifts I find as I am always on the lookout for home and garden decor.  I find hunts are sometimes one of the best sources for me finding more one of a kind items or the unusual or even home decor stores I wasn’t aware of.

005

So last night I decorated a whole cottage with a bunch of Christmas decor mostly from decor items received from hunts, advent and group gifts and maybe a few other pieces bought or given through a blogger pack.  It gave me a feeling of nostalgia and a small dose of guilt of not doing it sooner.

Today I’m showcasing a new hair style by Tukinowaguma that’s available at Tres Chic. It’s a sweet and stylish updo that’s perfect for those holiday parties as is the Antonina dress by Fame Femme, that has a fun bow going down the open back that adds a little sexiness to the dress.  Both of these items can be found in different colors at the event.

The decor being featured is by [CIRCA], which are items in their Holiday Advent Tree. There is a group that you need to join, it’s the [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents (in-world) and it’s free to new members.  Each day items have been added to the squares on the wall tree near the inside entrance. Items do cost from $1 – $75 lindens and some even at $0 lindens.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get these items until a couple of days ago, so it’s a bit of a short notice and hopefully she will leave them out a bit longer as the group will be closing the Eve of Dec. 24th.  The wall strip art in red plaid is  available currently at the Midwinter Fair.

Edited: A note on the advent for [CIRCA].  The creator will be opening the advent for days 8-24 on December 24th, so you will still have time to grab anything you like from those days.

Have a fabulous Wednesday Thursday!

On the wings of hope

Happy Thursday! It’s been a few days since I last posted here, only because I had a few items that I wanted to get done on my other blog at Alexa’s Fantasy Wardrobe. Though I’m back to show you some new great home and garden stuff.  The first item that I am showcasing is this new skybox by the Hive available at this round of FaMESHed. It has a land impact of 15, approximate size is 16L x 13W x 8H, as you can see with the picture beneath it makes for a great outside view . I provided an inside view as well in the last pictures below, where it shows the wall of doors slightly open letting in the sun or air, which ever atmosphere you prefer.

It includes this little nook, which I have decorated with a few items – some from the arcade, old releases and the ones I’m featuring from Pastiche. They are the two chairs and table nearest to the window. The chairs come with a color texture hud giving you a few options to choose from. In this picture I went with some natural earthy colors.  These will be at the upcoming Spoonful of Sugar Festival that opens on September 9th at 12 am SLT and will end September 25th.

010-hive

This festival is going to benefit the Doctors without Borders/Medicins Sans Frontieres. 100% of the proceeds of at least one item in each store will be directly donated to the charity plus a participation donation by each designer.  All monies will be going to the American office of Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), an international organization that provides emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care regardless of politics, religion or other affiliations.

It’s going to be 5 sims with over 180 stores in fashion, home and garden and breedables.  Below credits I have put some more information on this event.

The last items that are being featured are the trees by Little Branch shown in the second picture.  As you can see they make for some wonderful landscaping.  The Juniper are the ones with the swirl on the side of the skybox and you can find these at the new round of The Liaison Collaborative that runs until September 30th.  The cedar trees come in two versions and these are available at FaMESHed, which ends on September 27th.  Both are seasonal trees, which means on touch you can choose the season you want and it changes in texture to that season.

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

On Sunday I will be traveling and not sure how often or how good my internet will be to log in and blog.  This means I have from today until Sunday when I leave to be able to get in as many posts done in both blogs to show some of the great things you can find at ongoing events.

Today I am featuring a few things from all over the grid.  The first are these amazing peacocks by JIAN at Collabor88, which is celebrating their 5th birthday. It’s been only 3 days since they opened and trying to get in right now may prove to be a little difficult.  The peacocks come in a worn, rezzable or static version, plus two texture options.  Shown is the blue texture, the other is albino and all this for just $288L during the event only.

The wood bench is by Industry 7, available at the newest round of The Liaison Collaborative.  Two versions, a wood or metal and each come with 13 female/male sitting animations and 6 couple.  I need to point out that I am not using any of the sitting animations in the chair.  This is due to the fact that I needed a pose that would show off the shoes and dress a bit better and the sits in the chair are more geared to wearing pants or dresses that are straight.

On9 opened its doors on August 9th and I’m wearing this lovely striped dress by Snowpaws, a women’s fashion store that has been around a long time. You will be able to find this original mesh dress in 5 options of the stripe and non kind.

The last item being featured are the shoes. On August 14th, “In Your Shoes” will open it’s doors and Oh lala! is participating with these heels called Popy. They are white with a color bow in front and in back with a ribbon that weaves around the heel and are made to fit the Slink high feet.

Your support of this event by buying shoes will go a long way.  As 30% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Mexican Diabetes Association in support with Virtual Miss Latin America Organization.

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!
