Let the sunshine in

Before I tell you my cat story, I want to mention that all the details of what I’m featuring with today’s picture are below.  I’m showcasing lodge decor by Artisan Fantasy, cats by JIAN, some gacha decor by 22769 and all this inside the tree house by Trompe Loeil. The tree from the windows and doorway are by Little Branch.

My cat story.  When I was cleaning out my inventory I found 4 kitty cats from events I attended going as far back to 2014.  I don’t know too much about the cats other than they are breedable cats and they require that you feed them.  Now if you know me at all then you know I prefer dogs to cats.  On a whim I decided to birth all 4 starter cats. These cats were all different colors.  The first was a blue cat, which I appropriately named Azul for its color.  The others were white, pink and the last a mixture of light colors.  They roam around, they eat and sleep and ask for attention.

I found them amusing.  I kept them.  Maybe two weeks later I get some offline message from one of my cats… “I just had a kitten.” I logged in to find a box near the cat, which is the birthing box.  It takes all of 10 minutes or so to birth it, the box shakes when there’s like 2 minutes left announcing the arrival of the kitten.  It’s a cute mounting of excitement process.  The smallest adorable ball of fur was born. It sprinted off into a run as soon as it got on its legs. To make a long story short. I found a second box.

Three of the cats were sitting near each other. Azul was sleeping off to the side on its back. He looked exhausted and sort of smug.  Now if you touch the cat you get the menu and you can find out information on each cat. The breed, the color of eyes and who the parents are.

You bet I know which cats were naughty.  In this case all 4.

The guest house

I spotted this house on Flickr and was immediately drawn to it because of the red chili peppers.  I make no secret of my Mexican heritage and my love for our culture. Chili peppers is a common ingredient for many foods my mother and my grandmother makes.  I don’t make as I rarely cook and while I love many traditional things I am not a big fan of a lot of Mexican food.  I know. Trust me. I get poked fun at by my family.

This gorgeous home is by Artisan Fantasy, a brand that is known for crafting home furnishings, indoor and outdoor decor as well as for the garden.  This was a recent previous release, which can be found at the main store.  It is a gacha and I have provided the link to the key below in credits.

I’ve combined it with writing desk gacha as well as other pieces from this store.  

The Christmas decor you find in the last picture can be now be found at a discount at the Redeux Event, which is a bi-monthly event that features new and old releases at a discount. I enjoy visiting the event as I often find stuff I missed from fantasy and role-play events.

Hope to show you more decor from this brand in the near future.

La Cocina Mexicana

Buenos días!  Good morning!

This spicy fiesta set by Dust Bunny is so close to home that I could probably talk at length about each piece.  The way we make and eat it, but I’m not going to bore you though!  I’ll just share that while familiar with each dish — the ones that are more of a staple with my family are the tortillas and tacos. Freshly made warm flour tortillas are the best and with morning food even better.  Highly recommend them filled with cooked egg (hard scrambled), or potato with egg or egg and chorizo.  You get the idea?  I like a warm tortilla just smeared with butter.  Not a morning person, then try chicken, beef or fish tacos with either flour or corn tortillas.  Personally, a piece of fajita fills me up good.

The grilled corn and the empanadas are typically eaten at special occasions or large family gatherings. The grilled corn smothered with mayonnaise, lime juice, chili powder and then crumbled cotija cheese is something you ought to try once! It’s delicious!  The rest is more your snack or party type finger foods with the exception of just the guacamole, which we eat alongside other foods.

I’m also showing past releases, which fit my theme so get all the details below.

Buen provecho!
