Happy Saturday! The credits were way longer than I thought, even with having much of the information it still takes time to sort it out and insert all the links and everything else that goes along with making a blog post.  Though I’m in a cheerful good mood today so let me share what I’m showing today.

I’ll start with what I’m wearing.  The Valery Skin is a new release by Insol and it’s available at Tres Chic.  I wasn’t familiar with this skin creator, so it was nice to try it out and was rather pleased with the skin tones and easy to use applier system. I’m wearing the tan version of the skin, but you can find an additional five tones (peach, miilk, honey, creme and cinnamon) as well.

The pulled back hairstyle called Alanis is by Opale and available in 9 different color sets also at Tres Chic. The lovely necklace is available in a black, silver or gold pack.  The cute dress with open shoulders is by Kaithleen’s and you’ll find it in a range of colors, at least 15 if not more.  Then I’m wearing one of the new releases by Empire, which are the Tithonia that are available at this round of Kustom9.  As always with Empire shoes, you get a 12-color hud that gives you quite a few options.  My last picture gives you a close up of the necklace and hair.

009ps

The last items being showcased are all the decor items. The first is the rustic Whimsical Light set by [Merak], available at Shiny Shabby.  The candle in the vintage lamp light can be turned on and off. The painted tree comes in two versions, showing the green base, the other not show is silver. The rustic vase also in two versions, shown is green base as well and the other not shown is red. They can all be purchased separately or in a discounted pack.

I’m showing rugs from Bee Designs, and it’s part of their Haven Tree House Gacha out now at Shiny Shabby.  Other items from this same creator are items from their Bella Gacha set at Lost & Found. The two frames above the bed, the suitcases on the bed and decor boxes on the chair.  The small golden table that holds the teal lamp is by I[BDKX]I-//- and is available at On9, which is open for another couple or so days. The lounge type chair is by Sources and at Cosmopolitan.  You can change the texture of both the chair and the blanket.

That’s all for today. It’s time for me to grab some lunch before I start on getting this posted to Flickr.

It seems WordPress has changed the format on how to do blog posts, or it might have previously changed and I was using the old version. I don’t know.  I can’t seem to find how to get the previous way back, because I’m not liking what feels like a boxed in version.

Anyways, don’t have much time this afternoon so I’m going to point you to credits today. Still lots of great Christmas decor all over grid and also fashion.

Have a great Monday!

Some people stay in your thoughts forever

Happy Black Friday! One of the biggest sales event days of the year.  I stopped doing that kind of craziness a few years ago.  It was more the thrill of going out with my sisters then catching any real savings and usually it was to grab some new popular toy or game for the kids in our family.  Now those kids are all grown and our desire has waned as Black Friday has really been distorted and moved more to Thursday than the actual Friday. Though if you enjoy it.. have fun and keep safe!

008

It’s also great we can catch some savings here in Second Life with Black Friday sales going on. Though it’s also the perfect time to get to some ongoing events while everyone is trying to get into busy sims.  Today I am featuring the new Hanover Barn by Galland Homes that is available at the Draftsman Event. It’s a good size barn with an approximate footprint of 17 meters wide by 23 meters deep.  The creator of Galland Homes writes that the barn is indicative of the large timber and stone farms found through his home state of Pennsylvania.  It’s 100% mesh with a land impact of 72 and a snow add on that is available as well.

The other home decor being featured is the odres by Sweet Kajira, which are wine skins made of leather, usually goat, that are used to contain liquids like wine or oil. These here are available at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  I’m also showing the tree stump with reclining raccoon by JIAN available at the main store.  It’s animated and season change texture too. The fence I’m leaning against is by Pixel Mode and at The Liaison Collaborative. It’s available as a non animated version or pg and adult as well.  The trees are by Little Branch, with the Red Bradford {trees on left and right} at Shiny Shabby and the Maple Wood {tree in middle} at the Ultra Event.  snapshot_010

Lastly, I’m am showing a new hair release by Wasabi Pills that is available at The Forest Event. Previously you could only grab this hair if you paid the membership on a monthly basis to grab all the gifts. That has changed and now you can purchase items individually. I encourage you to go to The Forest web page to read more on this exciting change.  The boots are from Fame Femme and are at The Liaison Collaborative. You can find these in eight color options and each include a hud to change the color of the socks.

Have a fabulous day and start of the weekend!

Taking a moment of reflection 

07

I am attempting to use my phone to post this morning. It’s not my usual method as I prefer a desktop for any computer use. Though I’m not home until this afternoon and wanted to get at least this portion done and post to Flickr later.

Today I’m wearing a new skin called Imani by Essences, made for the LeLutka mesh head. It comes in several tones…the tone worn is medium. The thick eyebrows is what I really like with this skin.  The mesh hair I’m wearing is Thalia by enVOGUE and it’s at the main store. You will find it in a range of hair colors giving you plenty of options to choose from. Variety is a must these days.  This hair has a long braid going down the back and with the hair pulled back in the front it’s easily workable for any outfit.

The dress is by Una and it’s a new release for Project Se7en and you’ll find it in a few colors such as pink, green and black to name some. As seen in the picture it gives your chest quite a boost, though I’m sure you’re not going to get any complaints on that.

Now to the decor. I’m happy to be blogging for Dreamscapes Art Gallery, a store that I’ve been familiar with since joining SL. It’s got some fantastic decor pieces, from small to large, to fill any room you decorate.  It’s where you’ll find most of this Autumn decor I’m showing. The crates with pumpkins and apples. It’s apple season so just in time for some homemade apple bread.

There’s a few goodies also worth mentioning. The bushel of pumpkins next to me is a market place special for just under 40L. The pumpkins are texture change. The wreath and scarecrow are freebies if you are a member of the subscriber group for La Galleria. Check out her store while you’re there.

As soon as I am able to I will update this post with some of the missing landmarks.

Anyways, enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Over yonder

006ps

I might have mentioned in a previous post or two that I don’t watch a lot of television, especially in the last few years. Until now, the last time I tuned in to watch anything was the election debates.  Recently, my niece introduced me to a few shows on Netflix, which have been entertaining and since there’s no commercials I have been on a binge watching a few shows at a time.

I just finished watching the first season of the series, “The Ranch,” and while not overly fond of all the cursing in the movie it kept me entertained enough to keep seeing it until the last show.  The comedy follows the return of a struggling semi-pro football player, to his Colorado home to help run the family farm with his father and older brother.  All played by familiar known names in the acting profession.

015ps

My pictures were not inspired necessarily from watching the movie itself.  It was from the theme song, “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys,” originally performed by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. I remember hearing this song when I was growing up, and it made me smile as I thought of that long ago memory.

In the first picture is another wiener dog by JIAN, the Ducky PJs wanderer, which is a common in the Wonky Weenies gacha at the Arcade.  The rest of the decor items also previously shown, are from the Hive’s American Countryside collection, and also available at this round of the Arcade.

The second picture was a just because and similar to an image that played with the theme song in the series.
