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.

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! ♥

Wisp of something new

Hello everyone!!  It feels like forever that I’ve blogged.  It’s only been like 9 days and yet it feels way longer.   There is lots I can share about what I’ve been doing, but it’s late and there are plentiful days ahead for me to share what’s been keeping me ultra busy  these days.  Though one of the things that has taken a lot of my time this last month or so is the new home and garden event that I’m intricately involved in.  I blogged about Blueprint about a month ago and shared that it was a new event specifically geared to bring you some of the best home and garden decor in Second Life.

That day arrived today and I’m so excited to be showcasing some items from the event.  This is just a glimpse of some of the great stuff you will find, so I hope you visit the event. You really do want to as you could be the winner of a mega-pack of prizes just by visiting the event in its first week of opening.

Visit the Blueprint web page for more information on the event itself.
