Limited space creates unlimited creativity

Morning everyone!  It’s all about home decor today with this post as I’m showing the latest gacha release by Haikei, the “Change Your Mind” at Kustom9.  Now Haikei didn’t identify the items in their description so find the key here. There are 8 commons and 1 rare being the building that I’m showcasing all the decor in.  The table with chairs, plant in corner, frames against the wall, books on side table and hanging lamp are all part of the gacha as well as the pillows on the floor.

The guacamole y la cerveza decor on the table is by Ionic and part of the “La Hacienda” gacha set at The Chapter Four. The hanging headboard and bed are a collaboration by Shutter Field & Decor Junction at the Home Show.

The latest release by JIAN is the Pupper Parlor Gacha at The Epiphany.  I’m showing only two yorkies of the 14 commons and 3 rares in the set, which you can find the key here.  Two other items from the Home Show include the tulip floor lamp by The Half Moon Market and the 50s record player by FIN *Relive The Fifties*.   Both of which can be found in other colors.  The last items being featured today are by Zen Creations, which are the shelf decor with the vase with flowers, tea candles and frame and then the candle on the table there. You can find both these items at the main store, not new releases but fairly recent.

Have a wonderful day!!

Storytelling

This picture was born out of the request from a creator if we could include avatars in the blog post using their decor — to see some form of emotion, tension or message that creates a story that others can identify with.  Most often than not I don’t like to pose myself in decor pictures, because I want the focus to be on the decor and not myself unless I am also showcasing fashion.

Though it was a reasonable request that I felt that I could manage and since I had some sexy pieces of lingerie that I needed to also blog the idea for me, myself and I came to fruition.  The decor is the club sofa set by N4RS available now at FaMESHed, which is made up of the brown sofa, decorative table beside it with the candle and rug.  The black lingerie is by V/. VoluptasVirtualis and it’s at the Crystal Heart Festival with the hair I’m wearing by No.Match at The Liaison Collaborative. The scarlet harness set is by The Forge and this is at the recently open new round of The Fantasy Collective.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Quiet living spaces

I come from a large family so it was anything but quiet at my house growing up. My mother definitely deserves our gratitude and appreciation and so much more for having to raise a whole bunch of rowdy kids. Most of the siblings are just one or two years apart so there wasn’t much rest in between.

Having a living space like this I decorated would have never been ideal for our home situation. Living in Florida most of my life never required a fireplace either.  The only times I remember ever being around them was up north on the west coast and during our trip to the smoky mountains.

In any case.. it’s fun to decorate all sorts of ways here in Second Life.  Most of the decorations are from Fancy Decor at the Arcade with a few of his older items and some mingled from other designers.  I’m showcasing also one of the past releases by Galland Homes, which can be found at the main store.

It’s a messy kind of day

The day has shown itself to be somewhat messy literally already, but it’s the start of the weekend and I am going to enjoy it to the fullest even if I have somewhat of a busy day tomorrow.

Today I’m showcasing items from [Tia], who has this wonderful clock-maker desk and chair set at Whimsical that ends tomorrow and then you can find it at the main store.  The detail and quality of her items are amazing and she’s really doing some great new things.  I have a bedroom set that I’ll be showing in the next days.

Then I’m also showcasing a new hair release by [Ink], which is a common in their messy hair gacha at the Arcade.  You can find the gacha key here to see the rest of the hairs in the gacha set.  The other items shown today are by Plastik, from their Vindeluna gacha at the Arcade as well.  These are such beautiful decor pieces that I will no doubt use again, but if you want to take a look at the rest of the set take a look here.

Enjoy the rest of this day!

Riverside Cottage

Morning everyone, even though it’s just on the cusp of it turning noon so good afternoon too.  Just a quick post today to show the newest home by DaD Design. The Riverside Cottage is available at the Ultra Event.  It’s got a footage of 24,5 x 16,3 with a land impact of 39 including the plants. It has simple lines with large windows and the entrance has two planters with a selection of bushes and includes the walking path.

The lights on the walkway are from Needful Prims Store and are the donation item at the RFL Home & Garden Expo, so all proceeds from this go to benefit Relay for Life. The trees in this post are by DaD Design and are older landscaping items by this creator and slightly higher in prim, but still awesome for your landscaping needs.

Have a great one!

Edited: I forgot to mention the arbour bench by [Merak]. which is available at the main store. It has a land impact of 8 and comes with animations for female, male and couples as well some activities animations.

Hi Honey, I’m home

Happy Friday everyone. I hope it’s a good one for you so far. Mine is a bit slow going, as I’m feeling sort of lazy and now that I’ve had a fairly large breakfast I’m even more sluggish.  Even though I have quite a few things I need to work on in both worlds I’m taking the liberty to just take it easy today.

Yesterday, was also the anniversary of my dad’s passing and normally as I’ve done the last few years I usually dedicate a post to him.  Except this year I decided to forego it and keep my thoughts and memories to myself. I needed to get through on my own this time. I think that’s also why I’m feeling a bit slow going today as yesterday was an emotionally charged day not to mention an exhausting kind of week physically that I need to recharge the next couple of days.

I won’t keep you long, but will mention the few items that I am featuring in today’s post starting with the items from the travel preparations set by [Merak] at Tres Chic.  They’re scattered through the room, but the set includes the world map on the wall and below it on the side is the globe sitting on the storage box that’s also part of the set. The last two items are the flower bouquet laying on the chair and the travel planning items just below the cot.  The sofa and chairs and the pallet table including the fish decor and frame next to the map are by Dreamscapes Art Gallery.  You can find these items at the RFL Home & Garden Expo.  It’s one of two sets that are available.

Last items are by Q-Essentials, which are the industrial reclaiming hanging shelf and the wood cart that can be found at the main store.  Originally they were going to be at Draftsman, but for now this event has closed down.

Have a fabulous day or what’s left of it and hope you enjoyed all the pictures.
