What remains behind

A few months ago I was reading a story online and looking at pictures of some of the most beautiful ruins.  I wish that I had saved the link.  Long forgotten places left for ruin. Abandoned structures that have now become amazing places of natural beauty.  Where the natural elements such as vegetation has taken over and claimed it.  I knew immediately that I wanted to create something along those same lines with DRD’s release of building remains.

Something that would evoke a story in your mind. The pile of rubble holds so many memories that were made inside that brick structure.

Enjoy. 🙂

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.

The aftermath

Morning! I don’t have much time, so I will leave you with a few pictures that showcases some of the work of one of the most prolific designers in Second Life.

The work of DRD is top notch and if you’ve never been to their main store, you really ought to pay them a visit to see the amazing talent they show in the items they create.

I’m showcasing two of their newest releases in these photos along with a couple past releases and an item that is part of a past group gift — grab all the details below.  I’m also showing old ferris wheels seats that come with animations by Serenity Style, which is a gacha at Shiny Shabby.

 

Have a fantastic day!

Goat cheese

Evening! I’m getting this post in now as I’ll be off in the morning doing some stuff with family and I want to make sure to get this done sooner rather than later.  I’m showcasing stuff from the Arcade, which will open its doors in just a few more hours.

Now these goats have no idea that I absolutely love goat cheese. They used to sell these containers of the cheese in the size of a pearl at a local store we shopped at.  Though for whatever reason they discontinued them and now I buy the cheese in a roll size.  If you’ve never tried goat cheese — you should!  I enjoy the cheese with salad and softly toasted bread.

Have a great weekend!

Little quarrels

Morning! My favorite season is coming, so I’m going to start snapping in the autumn colors that I love.  I hope you all don’t mind that I’m leaving the hot summer days behind.  I might still do a few here and there.

Today I’m showcasing some amazing decor by The Loft & Aria currently at Uber. The name manteca is similar to mantequilla, which both mean butter. Though manteca to my Mexican Spanish is more like lard or grease and the latter is known as butter.  I love me some butter, cinnamon butter on fresh made pumpernickel bread is mouth watering.  Now I’m hungry!

Showing also some more cute cats by Mutresse for the Arcade.

TGIF!!

Stai calmo

This picture gives the indication I’m talking to myself and so we’ll just say I’m practicing my Italian.

Collabor88 opened its doors three days ago and there are some amazing stuff starting with this gorgeous necklace in tarnished silver by DRD.  If you click on the photo, you can see it up close.  I’m also showcasing the shoes I’m wearing by Mutresse, which comes with a HUD giving you 20 color options for different parts of the shoe.

Then lastly I’m showcasing the old water pump and washboard with tub by Bondi, out now at The Liaison Collaborative.  I did mod it a little by taking apart the buckets, so be mindful of that.  The other items being shown are the colorful chairs by Madras, formerly known as Mesh India and the ladder is part of a set by Serenity Style at The Liaison Collaborative as well.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
