The hidden things

Morning!! As usual my mornings are always a rush.  I’m not a morning person at all, so that is probably the main reason I can’t get moving fast enough.  Today I’m showcasing items at FaMESHed this month by Fancy Decor and RSD and to complete my scene I used the tied chair and statue by 22769 and shaving items by InsurreKtion.

These close ups are not edited outside of being cropped and no advanced lighting, but you can still see clearly the quality and details of the items.

Enjoy!

Airship accommodations

A fellow blogger and friend commented that he finds it really interesting how we all interpret the sets, specifically referring to a particular creator we both blog.  I think that is one reason to enjoy doing home and garden. I love seeing how others utilize sets or just in general different decor pieces.

Today’s post is a great example.  I pondered awhile trying to figure out how to blog this Steampunk Airship by DRD, currently at Uber.  It’s fantastically detailed as you can see.  It suddenly hit me when I spotted the couch inside again and decided to do the inside instead of the outside as most did and well the rest is history.  To get a view of the outside, view the creator’s photo on Flickr here.  Make sure you read her description, its bound to give you a good chuckle.

Enjoy!

Knee deep in the swamp

One of the things that I miss since moving further up the state here in Florida is seeing the gators off a back road that I used to travel when I was going into the next town.  During certain parts of the year they would line the other side of the canal that bordered the road by the dozens.  It was always a fascinating sight!

If you look closely you’ll see my gators.

Morning! Not much time today to spare and my system has gone crazy on me this morning and I fear rebooting and then not being able to post before I take off.  So wishing you all a fantastic day!

Always take time to make a joyful mess

Yesterday, in organizing my photos for the week I realized that I got several showcasing items at Bloom.  Now if you’re familiar with this event, then you know it’s a short event that lasts just a little over two weeks with doors closing at the end of the month.  I had the pleasure of blogging the event and it’s always great to be a part of an event like this.  The downside sometimes can be when you also have a lot of sponsors at the event and you try to squeeze everyone in.

Saying that I’ll be doing a second post again tomorrow.  Today’s picture is showcasing a release by DRD for Bloom.  The cake counter is messy and reminiscent of when I bake, because I like bringing everything out, the recipe book, the ingredients, the bowls and baking dish.

The counter is 9 land impact and comes with animated poses. You get to clean, whisk, beat and read the recipe book — great for role-play.  The rest of the items used are listed below.

It’s a bit of a hodgepodge.

I’m having one of those weekends where my Second Life leaves a lot to be desired. I know that I’m not alone in this — we’ve all experienced issues in the recent days. Yesterday I had inventory and rezzing issues and no one I knew seemed to be having them, so I feel a bit special.  Of course it’s always at an inopportune time. Like when you have a few dozen of boxes you need to unpack.

Thankfully, today seems a bit better so I was able to get a picture done.  I have to admit that I struggled a bit putting this scene together. I’ll borrow DRD’s words from their current release — it’s a bit of a ‘hodgepodge’.

I hope you have a great Sunday!
