I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day

Hello everyone!  To say the least it’s been a little crazy in both of my worlds and the reason for my being away from blogging the last days.  I have some exciting changes in the works that I will share soon enough, but for today I’m happy to showcase some awesome home and garden with you.

This delightful cottage is the newest release by DaD-Virtual Living- available at Uber.  If you don’t like yellow, no worries.  It comes with 74 pre-loaded colors to choose from.  I’m also showcasing Lia Hanging Bed Set by MudHoney that is in this current round of Deco(c)rate.

It’s also the last round and so you need to make sure to grab all existing crates by the end of today as they will no longer be available.  I would suggest you visit the Deco(c)rate website for more information.   The scroll work is a decor piece in the set by Krescendo for Deco(c)rate.  The terracotta pots are by Mesh India and wonderful in and outdoors.  Grab them at the main store.

There is never enough credit given to what makes our Second Life even more beautiful and that’s the trees, plants and flowers that make these beautiful communities in Second Life we get to work, play and live in.  The spring blossom tree is by Little Branch and the flowering bushes are from Heart.  Two fantastic providers of landscaping products and I’m so thrilled to be able to feature their work.

Title by Picasso

My inventory is bulging at the seams and at some point I need to take some time off just to do a thorough job of cleaning it up.  Some time last year, at year end, I lost  90% of my 2016 inventory and that helped a lot in bringing it down some as it was a considerable amount of lost inventory.  The sad thing is I couldn’t even tell you what a third of the stuff was in that 2016 folder.  My blog helped me a lot to figure out what I lost, but there is always so much I don’t blog that I purchase on whim in those moments of.. “oh I like this” and it somehow ends up in my inventory.

So heads up I’ll be taking a break in the very near future.  Today I’m showcasing the arcade gacha set by 22769.  I believe it’s an exclusive to the arcade and will not be sold once the arcade is over, so it’s a great time to visit and shop and get these great pieces of decor into your inventory.  Dahlia has the La Dolce Vita set for this last round of Deco(c)rate and showing some past releases by Ariskea that you can find at the mainstore.

Enjoy the weekend!

Summertime fresh

Morning! Today it’s a mixture of decor items I’m showing from various events.  These fruits are making my mouth water. I love most fruits, with my favorites being peaches and mango and both are in season right now.

In this post I’m showcasing the limoncello set by :: N :: available currently through the Deco(c)rate subscription.  Unfortunately, this is the last month this subscription will run.  Please visit the Deco(c)rate website for all the information, but definitely I found this section very important to share.

“Important: Items contained within the Deco(c)rate will be available for delivery through the end of August. After that, items may no longer deliver. PLEASE unpack your Deco(c)rate as soon as you buy it. We cannot be held responsible, nor can any Deco(c)rate designers, for non-deliveries after the end of August 2018.”

Enjoy!

I wasn’t really planning to do a second post today, though I had a very productive weekend of doing scenes and taking photos.  It just makes sense to get them out of the way earlier.

This picture has a mixture of items from events and sponsors, so make sure you take a look below for all the details.

Have a great one!

Good morning! Just enough time to post this and head out the door, because it’s raining and I need the extra time.

Country Fixins’

I was already done with my requirements for 6 Republic, though a picture sort of came to mind and I went with it.  The stuff I’m blogging reminded me of an annual barbecue event that I use to attend to raise funds for some charity. Most of the food was homemade country fare made by some of the local residents.  Talk about yummy!

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The wooden table is decor available at this round of Deco(c)rate and the bougainvillea tree is by Little Branch. The rest is all from 6 Republic, but hurry only 2 more days.
