Discussing life

Hello everyone.  I’ve been decorating a friend’s home this evening and decided to give it a rest for now and come here and blog before calling it a night. I had already blogged for today on my other blog, the fantasy blog mentioned on my front page there in the corner, so I wasn’t really going to blog here.  Though it seems like a good idea, so why not.

The post is a mixture of fashion and decor and a collaboration again with my friend Sita, which I’ve provided a link to her blog below in credits. The rustic dining set is by Aphrodite Shops, which comes complete with flower decorations, lights and place settings. The cheese and fruits board shown is available as a separate purchase and both can be found currently at Tres Chic.  I used the new barn pergola by Shutter Field & Decor Junction to complete the scene.  This build can be found currently at Shiny Shabby.

The flowers in the urn behind the table are not part of the set, but are form Spargel & Shine and available at their main store.  I don’t blog for them, but you ought to check them out they have some fantastic stuff. The Fall trees surrounding the pergola are part of the Fall decor by Dreamscapes Art Gallery, which can be found at their main store.  Two of the trees have flying leaves, which is really a nice touch to give you that feeling of an Autumn breeze.

Last but not least is what I’m wearing, which is a new hair by Analog Dog and jacket by E-Clipse currently at Tres Chic.  The pants are by Scandalize and currently at Cosmopolitan.  You’ll have to visit Sita’s blog to know what she’s wearing.

In my own thoughts today

Happy Thursday and one day closer to the weekend. It’s a post and run this afternoon before the rain sets in, so I’m going to point you to credits so that you can see where all this amazing stuff is from.

Have a fabulous rest of the day!

Love, kisses & Valentine wishes

0123ps3

How many people feel about Valentines Day depends on whether they are single or in some type of relationship.  They either love or dread it and I’m sure there are a few out there that don’t pay it any attention at all.  Though if you’re one of those that loves and you’re looking for some decor to create that special moment then Dreamscapes Art Gallery will help get you ready with plenty of decor and gifts to make that day very special.

I’m also showing another pug by JIAN, which is the rare one in the Love Pugs gacha at The Gacha Garden.  While not shown the pug is sitting on a small stool.  The pink teddy bear is one of the many bears that Aphrodite Shops has to also help you surprise that special one.  The bowl of chocolate kisses is by Mesh India and it’s part of their Valentine gacha at Cosmopolitan.  The blooming flowers on the cabinet with pillows is by (luc) boutique and it’s part of their Vision of Hope gacha available at the main store.

Every room in the house has it’s own kind of warmth

Today it’s an indoors post showcasing some lovely decor items by two designers participating in the upcoming round of The Liaison Collaborative and another at We ❤ Role-Play.

The first is by a {e}lusive Designs, a new builder who is making their debut into the world of mesh home and garden items. The fireplace, light strings with cards, the book tree, crate and candles are 100% made by the designer with no templates or purchased models used.  I modded the fireplace and string of lights with cards to fit this wall space and tree to fit the space, so the purchased versions are slightly bigger.  I included information the builder included on the items below credits.

Serenity Style is participating with a Solstice Dreams gacha, plus they’re also a sponsor of this round of the Collaborative. The chairs are the rare in the set, then you have the books, bottles, box of ornaments, rug and curtains.  I modded the curtains making them more transparent.

The last decor items that I’m featuring today are by .aisling., who has some wall decor pieces in three colors out now at We ❤ Role-Play.  It’s the trees, cats, birds and the couple representing love displayed on the wall behind the fireplace.

A little about the items.

Book Tree
The tree is 4 LI without lights, and starting at 13 LI with lights, depending on what size you make it. The package comes with a no lights version for those books lovers who just love books.

String of lights with cards – 6LI with shadow
The cards are extra special in my book, (pun intended) as you can put your own photos on the faces of each card. Just edit it, and select the face and add your own picture. That simple.

Candles – 1LI
As with all my items, the textures are custom created by me and carefully baked to bring out a glow and warmth.

Fireplace – 3LI
I love this fireplace, and again, all texturing is custom designed and baked. My goal was that it had a warmth and immersive quality.

Books and Crates – 2LI
This little shabby sheek item is just simply cute and at 2LI with shadow, it can be placed anywhere.

 

Home is where our story begins

There is always so much prettiness around the grid during the Autumn season. The burst of colors I see everywhere on blogs, flickr and in-world inspired me to do something a little more with this picture to show you the newest house release by DaD Designs.

The Southwoods Cottage is just beautiful.  It includes a veranda in the front and on the inside it has a spacious main room, a bathroom and one bedroom.  It’s 100% mesh with a footage of 16.8 x 16.0 with copy and mod rights and a land impact of 77.  There is a snow add on that is sold separately if you are into the changing seasons. The cottage is available at Shiny Shabby.

circa-026ps

I’m also featuring trees by Little Branch also available at Shiny Shabby.  The London Plane that is near the front window and the young maples that are on each side of the steps.  These are 4 seasons so great for all year long as the seasons change.  The London is 7 land impact with the maple at 5, and will change if you resize up or down.

circa-025ps

Then I’m also featuring more Fall items by [CIRCA], which are scattered throughout my scene.  I’ve done some close ups to show you all the great stuff that you can find at the second location for [CIRCA].

There’s no place I rather be than home

When I got this skybox to blog the first thing that caught my eye was the design. My mind started to think of how I could decorate it, to create a living space without a big emptiness in the middle and keeping in mind the view from the windows.  You can see it without the furniture below. That’s where I challenged myself to completely decorate it and hoping that I would have enough prim to do so. It’s mesh and the quality of the textures are very good. It’s by Dubu and available now at SaNaRae until October 18th.

ubu-0102ps

The other items that are being featured today are some of the decor pieces in the room.  Some of the plants on the table and on the stairs are by .aisling. and are available at the Fantasy Collective.  There are two sets: the Mandragorae includes four versions with texture change via menu and Herbae includes three versions with texture change via menu as well.  Each plant is only 1 land impact.

ubu-011

The vase in the table with twigs and the book near it sitting on top of some other books are by Serenity Style and at LTD The Event.  Unfortunately, it is the last round for this event as it was unexpectedly announced to us yesterday.  I’ve included vendor pictures of both the plants and the items by Serenity below credits so there is no confusion.

snapshot_014

The remaining pictures with the one on top of this text and below are so that you can see the details and quality of the skybox.

snapshot_015

My credits lists is huge and while I tried my best to stay in some particular order I might have gotten distracted and wandered from side to side as I copied and pasted. Though as always, if you want to know about any particular item, please don’t hesitate to contact me via comments, in-world or even flickr.

We’re dining in tonight

017-aphrodite-jianps

First time today I’ve gotten a chance to sit down and think about blogging. I was out of the house around 7 am this morning and just walked in the door less than an hour ago. If I hadn’t just ate something, it might have been the perfect time for an afternoon nap.  Alas, not going to happen for me.

Today I am featuring some more fall decor by Aphrodite Shops and JIAN. I hope you took advantage and grabbed this pumpkin collection by JIAN yesterday for Fifty Linden Friday.

019ps

If you’re not familiar with this event, it’s every week on Friday, where you will get some amazing home and garden decor, clothes and accessories for only 50 lindens. The link embedded above takes you to the events Flickr page where you can see what’s on offer each week. This pumpkin collection has solo or piled and a few cats included as part of the decor. I just checked the store and they are still available at the discounted price.  Just hurry!

jian-018ps

I’m also featuring items by Aphrodite Shops.  The first is the leaf table and chairs dining room set with everything on the table included. It’s available at the Tres Chic until October 5th.  It comes in two versions, beige and brown. The chairs come with animations for male, female and kids. It’s perfect for indoors or outdoors and a great setting for this season!

020ps

The second item by Aphrodite Shops is this fall cozy shelter with a bunch of decor that comes with it. The next couple of pictures gives you an inside view of the shelter and everything you can find in it.

021ps

Makes for a great little getaway from home. A place just to sneak off for some alone time, read a book or just to relax and do absolutely nothing.  I think I’ll go for the latter… and maybe a nap after all.
