The Laurel Ridge

Today I am featuring the Laurel Ridge home, a 100% mesh original design by Galland Homes available at FaMESHed.  The home is 31. m x 25 m. with a land impact of 232 and is copy and mod. The following description is from the creator itself.

“This luxury home is composed of timber frame with stone accents and vertical board and batten siding. The home is materials ready and best viewed with advanced graphics enabled*.

You will find warm tones throughout and architectural elements consistent with modern luxury log home construction.

The home included a large great room with working fireplace, open bay windows to overlook your vista, space for a kitchen, dining area, powder room, and master suite. The second floor includes two other large bedroom or office spaces.”

I’m also featuring the newest collection by JIAN, which is the bucks and does roaming the land. You can find these delightful animals at FaMESHed as well.

Have a great one!

Subdued

It’s that time of year for sure where you see pumpkins galore in real and virtually here in Second Life.  If you missed out on this past week’s Fifty Linden Friday, then you missed these great baskets of pumpkin by Hive. Though you’ll be able to find them at the main store and really make for some nice decor for this season.

I’m also showcasing items from the month’s subscription box to Deco(c)rate. If you’re not familiar with this decor subscription, then I invite you to visit their website for more information and also how to find out where to purchase the mystery box. I” give you the short version that it’s a monthly mystery box filled with original mesh home and garden decor.  You get a about 15 different items from some of the best known designers.

This month’s theme is Harvest Moon and Convair is participating with the Berkshire Barn. The barn has weathered and worn wood detail with tall rafters. It’s original design and mesh, with scripted doors and access control. It has a land impact of 136, and is scaleable, but you run the risk of a higher impact.

Serenity Style is another participant this month with the Raven Dream in the Porch Bench with pumpkin decor box and flying leaves. The land impact is 1 for the leaves – 5 for pumpkin decor and 7 for bench.

I wasn’t anticipating being in the picture, but when I had my camera set and I was standing just in the middle I sat down on the bench and I ended up changing the angle slightly.  This also allowed me to feature the boots by Mosquito’s Way, which are available at The Liaison Collaborative.

All pretty stuff to have.

Well not much to say this afternoon as I’m literally here only to publish this post and then I’m out the door.  I’ll return to normal some day soon. Maybe. Normal is boring right?

Until then.. have a great one!

It’s been a while since I last collaborated with Jules and if you’re not familiar with her blog, you need to go check it out at Sunshine & Sparkles.  I kept crashing quite a bit, but she was a great sport and even came back another day so that I could finally take the picture.

Many thanks Jules for your patience and for collaborating with me!! ♥

The Savannah

Galland Homes released a new home almost a week ago.  The Savannah, is described as a southern style beach home.  Just as  you see it pictured it includes a wrap around porch on the outside and the inside you’ll find an abundance of rooms with enough space for everyday living.  I’ve included some details below credits, but also visit Galland Homes Blog to get more details on what this new lovely home offers.

I’m also showcasing a new release by Anhelo.  The block wall and gate post fence set by Anhelo is currently at the Kagami Event that is ongoing until August 28th.  The coastal boathouse on the far end on the side of the house is by DaD Designs. It is this past month’s group gift, which may still be available. You can get a better view here and make sure to take a peek at the rest of the creators amazing designs.

The other item being featured in today’s post is by Shutter Field & Decor Junction for Shiny Shabby.  The rustic outdoor bar with swing type seats is just what you need to finish off the rest of the summer time enjoying the sun and some outdoor fun and drinks.

Have a great weekend ahead!

There are stories waiting to be written

I’m sort of wondering why I didn’t take a close up of the items inside this little shack by [Tia] at FaMESHed. Thinking back to this day I remember the struggle was finding a windlight that I liked. You know one of those days that when you finally find the lighting to take the photo and all you want to do is quickly snap the picture and be done with it.  Yes, it was probably one of those days.  Though you really ought to go check these items out at the event because they’re absolutely great.

The decor on the outside, the lighted arch with the trunks are by Serenity and were part of last months Deco(c)rate. You can still grab the subscription box, but it will be at a slightly higher price.  The white poppies are from Heart Gardens and also at FaMESHed.  As I mentioned in my post yesterday, you can find these in an assortment of colors.  The last item is the dirt road by Moon_Sha at We ❤ Role-Play. There are several options on this road available as individual purchases or a fatpack.

Lots of great stuff coming this month so stay tuned!

Quiet living spaces

I come from a large family so it was anything but quiet at my house growing up. My mother definitely deserves our gratitude and appreciation and so much more for having to raise a whole bunch of rowdy kids. Most of the siblings are just one or two years apart so there wasn’t much rest in between.

Having a living space like this I decorated would have never been ideal for our home situation. Living in Florida most of my life never required a fireplace either.  The only times I remember ever being around them was up north on the west coast and during our trip to the smoky mountains.

In any case.. it’s fun to decorate all sorts of ways here in Second Life.  Most of the decorations are from Fancy Decor at the Arcade with a few of his older items and some mingled from other designers.  I’m showcasing also one of the past releases by Galland Homes, which can be found at the main store.
