Timeless aging

If you’re familiar with Death Row Designs, that is also known as DRD, then you know the quality and the overall awesome creativity they are known for.  They recently introduced their new concept; the Shadow Box, a monthly subscription box that has a bit of mystery to it. Something new and unknown once a month, with a bonus reward if you purchase every box in the series, which is 6 months.

I’m going to link you to the Death Row Designs website where you can learn all about this new subscription box and how to subscribe. You will not be at all disappointed if you do.

Just opening the box is an amazing experience! You click the nicely wrapped box tied with rope, which sets it to start animating to unwrap itself and as the paper and rope fall to the side a beautiful standing jewelry box is revealed that also animates opening its doors on the side and top and you automatically receive two folders containing the light and dark sets of the series.

I’m showing the items in the light version set. As you can see they are remarkably well done.  The sofa and chair have sit animations as well as the piano chair with objects having a land impact that range from 2 to 18.

Enjoy!

Stay close to people who feel like sunshine

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!! ♥

Sometimes, simply by sitting, the soul collects wisdom.

Title ~ Zen Proverb

A little more zen decor for you all to enjoy from this month’s Deco(c)rate.  The zen bath house is from Convair with a 50 land impact and has scripted doors and windows. There are single and couple animations in the bath.  The soothing fountain in the corner of the home is by Peaches and has sound that can be turned on and off.

The zen dinner set is Pewpew! It’s a wonderful set that I rezzed as shown, though can be moved around to your comfort.  The place-mat on click brings up the menu that gives you four choices of soup. The chairs come with solo and couple seating animations.  The chestnut trees are by Little Branch and also part of this months Deco(c)rate subscription box. The Canadian red maple is also by Little Branch, but this can be found at this current round of On9.

The last items being featured is the new manor fence kit by unKindness.  It’s available now at the current round FaMESHed. I’ve seen various ways people have utilized this kit and I have to say it really is a great addition for any home and garden or even sim decor.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!

Some days are just meant for grilling

I knew soon we would be seeing the fall colors start to make their way into Second Life.  This is one of my favorite seasons to photograph so I’m really looking forward to seeing some great home and garden decor for the season.

Today I am featuring items by Ionic at The Chapter Four round.  The Summer Island Gacha has 13 commons and 3 rares to the set.  To see the full set you can visit Ionic’s Flick here and here to see the complete gacha.  I’m also showing items at The Liaison Collaborative.  The country love sign is by [Merak], the copper and weathered lamps are by Plastik and the three pairs of decor rubber boots are by [ kunst ].

Everything used in the picture as always is included in credits.

Have a great one!

Enjoying the country atmosphere

Howdy!!  I’m practicing my southern drawl when I say that.  Ok. I’m teasing.  I don’t have a drawl or an accent for that matter.  As I mentioned the other day in my post where I featured a farmhouse and decor I use to think about wanting to live in the countryside.  Yet, I don’t even listen to country music or wear anything country much less jeans in real life.

Though I like wearing the country style here in SL from time to time and if you do too then it’s time to visit this month’s round of The Liaison Collaborative. The theme is all about “Country Chic.”

Also showcasing some more items from The Gacha Garden, so take a look at credits for everything shown.

Have a great one!!
