The Sweetest Spot

It’s definetely all that and more.   It got me craving for some warm bread smeared in butter and then some.   I’m showcasing the newest gacha by 8f8, which is gorgeous and beautiful set of sweets along with the build available now at The Epiphany.  The gacha set is 35 items, 3 are rare and an additional 3, which are the VIP reward,  an exclusive reward and the 8f8 Creations group gift.  You can find the gacha key here as not all items are shown.

The story of a traveler

Good morning!  Today’s post is all about 8f8’s newest collection.  It’s a beautiful collection as usual with remarkable textures and details.  There is so much to this set in terms of colors, texture change for the leaves and animations.  You must visit to get the full appreciation.  Included in the scene are some other pieces from 8f8.

There is also a story that comes with this set… taken from creators Flickr.

The Story

This is a story of one traveler. He travels from one place to another. He does not have much to offer, just a humble old worn out suitcase of unknown content but of great value only known to him. He chooses many different directions as he is very curious by nature no matter how much they scare him. He stumbles a lot on the way, falls too and his knees feel the weight of all experiences he carries with him. Yet he continues going forward discovering all life offers, around him and within him. More often than not he encounters seemingly empty spaces, places left behind, abandoned or perhaps just misunderstood, to most of no value. But not to him. Those are his precious moments when his eyes are able to catch shy beauty that found a place to grow where there only seems to be decay. Little beauty emerging where to an untrained eye only seems to be waste, waste of space, waste of time, waste of effort… He recognizes such places, he knows them very well as he has spent many years living them. So he stops and reaches out.

This is a story of one traveler. This is a story of someone who looks for places that struggle, sees beauty in these seemingly forgotten, abandoned souls and offers them a mirror to show them their own inner growing beauty he seeks and loves so deeply.

This is a story of me and … you.

The Collection

Nine different items, one 8f8 Group Gift and BONUS Old Colors for the phone booth if you go for the whole collection.  You can see it displayed at Black Kite.

Time to enjoy the outdoors

Happy Friday!  It’s definitely that time of year to enjoy the outdoors and I’ve got just the plan for you.  Take a bike ride and when you’ve had enough pedaling stop to rest and enjoy a picnic.

Freshly squeezed

Most of you know that Flickr has been down the last 24 hours due to some maintenance.  It’s back up for some and others not quite yet.  It came up for me and then went down ago.  I’m posting anyway.

Last night while I was doing this scene, it made me realize how dependent I really am on Flickr for finding items in my inventory.  Whenever I can’t recall a name of a particular item I usually go to the creators page or my own and scroll through pictures to find the item name.  Or when I’m looking for a particular type of plant or furniture I can scroll through a home and garden group to find something new or remember an item I have and forgotten about.

I was trying to find this stove that is pictured by Apple Fall.  I searched with words like stove, antique, range and the creators name.   I found plenty, just not this one.  I never would have guessed that the stove would be called a cooker.

I missed you Flickr.

Today I’m showcasing a new set by Contrast at Shiny Shabby. The set made up of table, chairs and vase with cotton is available in other colors.  I’ve used the old enamelware set by InsurreKtion to go with my scene.

I hope you enjoy.

Spring trinkets

It’s a gorgeous day after yesterday’s stormy weather that knocked out power across several areas of our county and neighboring counties.  I think more than half the street lights were out near me including lights to stores and restaurants.  Thankfully, ours was restored within the hour and everything was good.  Today the sun is shining and it’s slightly windy and it felt amazing as I spent most of my morning out running errands.

Today’s post is featuring a new release by 8f8, the spring trinkets set is gorgeous with amazing detail.  It’s available at the main store.  I’m also showcasing a new decor item by [ zerkalo ], the sofa is available Kustom9 and is available in a few colors.

Enjoy!

Treasures of the heart

I hope that your Christmas was peaceful and joyous and above all else safe. Mine was thankfully and I’m grateful for many blessings, especially that all six of my siblings were here and some of their children.  There was plenty of food, laughter, games and each moment something we can all treasure.  I also got to spend time with someone very dear and close to my heart.  It made the perfect ending to a wonderful day.

It’s been a long time coming.  I’m taking a break from blogging for what remains of this year and also going into the new year until the end of January. I will be around just not posting.

As the year ends I also want to say thank you to each of you my followers, who views, likes my pictures or even reads what I write.  I’m very thankful to each of you as you’re part of the reason that I enjoy the scene making and the picture taking.  Speaking of which I am showcasing the amazing gacha collection by 8f8, who has outdone himself again.  Every single pieces is beyond gorgeous and so worth having it in your own decor collection.

On a final note — Happy New Year!  See you in 2019! ♥
