Spring is bird chirping weather

I showed you just a glimpse of one of the previews of The Arcade late last night with my previous post showing only one item of the JIAN collection, which I will show more in the coming days.

Today I am featuring another preview almost showing the complete collection from the Spring Things Gacha by Hive.  The whole collection consists of 17 commons and 2 rares with land impact ranging from the highest of 73 for the house to 1 for the smaller items.

If you want to take a peek at the key for the gacha, you can find it here or visit the The Arcade site to find the whole preview guide.

Winter will be here before we know it

I’m switching gears from a fall scene earlier today to a winter scene this evening to feature this cute little winter outfit for the little ones in Second Life.  It’s from BabyBurp and available at Penumbra Autumn/Winter Fashion show this week.

To complete my scene I am also showing this cotton candy car by Mushilu that is currently at Tres Chic and can be found in a few colors.  The bench is a collaboration between Shutter Field and Decor Junction.  If it looks familiar it’s because I showed a rustic version a few days ago.

I’ll probably be doing a short post a little later to also once again mention the upcoming Draftsman event that will be launching in mid November.

Where Did You Sleep Last Night

My original title to this picture was going to be something like “RIP to the feelings I had for you,” except I didn’t want anyone to think I was bemoaning a loss or anything to that nature. My sis for one would be in my message box asking if everything was alright.  Nope, this picture was just me being a bit lazy to create a bedroom scene and still wanting to show the bed as creatively as I could. A lot of my pictures are derived from my own mood, but most often these days I’m just inspired by the item itself, a song or a picture or an idea that pops in my head.  It can be numerous things.  Then I get stuck in writing a title! Laughs.

Today I am featuring a couple of items.  The first is this Gothic wrought iron bed by Hive, and available now at Romp.  It’s available in both PG and Adult and has a land impact of 10-11 depending on the version of with a top or no top. The spooky trees I’m showing are by Little Branch and currently at The Liaison Collaborative.  There are 4 different types available.  I thought that I had used all four, but when I did my credits there were 2 of the same kind, so I am only showing 3 of the 4.

Have a great Monday!

All the time someone is watching you

dad-013ps4

I’m in the groove right now listening to 80’s music, which was one of the highlights of my teenage years.  When I was putting this scene together the song, “Somebody’s Watching Me,” is what came to mind.  For most of my career, at least the past 15 years, I had a very public life where I had to get used to the fact that there is always someone watching you.

I kid you not. It was a bit uncanny when comments would reach me that someone would see me at a certain place or I said this or that, all unbeknownst to me.  I was still in this career when I started Second Life that at times I was a little apprehensive with it. Though I’m no longer in that career and fully embracing not having to censor everything that I do or say.

Today I am showing DaD Design’s latest creation, which is the ‘Wrought Iron Vintage Bed’.  It’s 100% original mesh and is available in both PG and Adult and has 4 different texture colors (white – gray – dark grey – black) accessible by clicking on the headboard.

You can find more details on the bed below the credits.

Happy Thursday! It’s been a few days since I last posted here, only because I had a few items that I wanted to get done on my other blog at Alexa’s Fantasy Wardrobe. Though I’m back to show you some new great home and garden stuff.  The first item that I am showcasing is this new skybox by the Hive available at this round of FaMESHed. It has a land impact of 15, approximate size is 16L x 13W x 8H, as you can see with the picture beneath it makes for a great outside view . I provided an inside view as well in the last pictures below, where it shows the wall of doors slightly open letting in the sun or air, which ever atmosphere you prefer.

It includes this little nook, which I have decorated with a few items – some from the arcade, old releases and the ones I’m featuring from Pastiche. They are the two chairs and table nearest to the window. The chairs come with a color texture hud giving you a few options to choose from. In this picture I went with some natural earthy colors.  These will be at the upcoming Spoonful of Sugar Festival that opens on September 9th at 12 am SLT and will end September 25th.

This festival is going to benefit the Doctors without Borders/Medicins Sans Frontieres. 100% of the proceeds of at least one item in each store will be directly donated to the charity plus a participation donation by each designer.  All monies will be going to the American office of Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), an international organization that provides emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care regardless of politics, religion or other affiliations.

It’s going to be 5 sims with over 180 stores in fashion, home and garden and breedables.  Below credits I have put some more information on this event.

The last items that are being featured are the trees by Little Branch shown in the second picture.  As you can see they make for some wonderful landscaping.  The Juniper are the ones with the swirl on the side of the skybox and you can find these at the new round of The Liaison Collaborative that runs until September 30th.  The cedar trees come in two versions and these are available at FaMESHed, which ends on September 27th.  Both are seasonal trees, which means on touch you can choose the season you want and it changes in texture to that season.

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!
