Como la flor

One of the fun things when doing decor scenes is being able to find items that blend and fit well together. I think of it almost like being a world traveler and finding odds and pieces that you like or perhaps it’s the oddly shaped piece that has been in the family for generations.  It can be quite challenging too, perhaps especially on days when you need to get something done and you don’t feel very creative or motivated.

I was tipping the scale on the not so motivated and feeling creative when I put this together and yet I’m pleased with the final result showcasing a mixture of fashion and home decor from all over the grid. Take a look at credits to get the full list of everything shown.

Happy Friday!

Today I’m featuring stuff by Empire and The Den in collaboration with Ariskea. The shoes are from Empire and available now at the Geeks & Nerds Event. Like with all their shoes the Hydrangea shoes are 100% original mesh and 2o colors are included via a HUD  with the ability to change parts individually.  They are rigged mesh made for the Belleza Freya, Belleza Venus, Belleza Isis, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, Maitreya and The Mesh Project.

009

The furniture set made up of the couch, chairs along with the chest table and balls decor with the hourglass and clock, lamp, postal frame and letter decor are a collaboration by the creators mentioned.  It’s a lovely set that fits all year long, the sofa is available in both a pg and adult version.

You can find it at Uber.  The rest of the close up pictures you will note were without any processing other than some light blurring, just to give you a better view of all the pieces in the set.

Have a fabulous one!

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.

The Tribeca Loft

“There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world.  It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher.” ~ Henry Van Dyke

Dad Jian 014ps

It’s been a while since I’ve decorated to this extent, but I was in the mood to do it with this newly released loft by DaD Design at the Monsieur Chic, a new men’s high fashion shopping event that will also have some furniture.  The Tribeca loft is a limited edition item and only 100 of these will be sold, so grab yours quickly.  More information on the loft is below the credits and I have also included a photo collage of the loft itself.

Another item that is being featured today is the cream and brown armchairs by DaD Design as well.  They come in pg and adult versions and are just so inviting with some very nice sit, cuddle animations in the pg versions shown here and can fit both an indoor or an outdoor setting.  These are available now at the Monsieur Chic event as well.

The last items being featured are the curious cats by Jian.  Now you must understand that I am not a cat person in either world, so it’s kind of hard to call them adorable.  Though Jian does a great job in creating some cute animals for us to enjoy the experience of having pets in-world.  Apart from stationary cats there are wandering ones that walk freely and then clinging cats for those who want to carry them around.  These curious cats are available for the new round of The Gacha Garden.  I’m showcasing a couple of common ones, a few rares and also the seed of inspiration gift that is received after a player does 20 pulls on a single machine.  I’ve put the event website below the credits, if you want more information and want to learn how to play.

The rest of the items used are from past events and a considerable amount of them are gachas.

Tia 007-Darker

After several restless nights I finally got a good sleep in, so I’m feeling bright-eyed and bushy tailed. In other words fully alert and with a slight degree of enthusiasm. I’m not a morning person after all!

Today I am featuring a new designer/creator.  New to the blog, but not to Second Life. She’s been around for a few years and her store  in Second Life is focused on original, high quality, mesh role play furniture.  Her new release, the Kaoutar lounge set, is a gorgeous adult set of furniture.

You get quite a bit of animations with both the double and single seats, that have a mixture of single sits, cuddles, dominants and sex animations.  It’s 100% mesh and my favorite of all creations is always the texture hud that gives you a little customization.  This one includes a hud with 10 luxury colors for the fabric and 5 wood colors.

The set is available now at the new We ❤ Role-Play round that started July 5th, and will go through July 31st.  It will be at the main store after the event, but why wait, grab it at a discount now!
