Ocean breezes

Good morning!..and Happy Father’s Day!!

The sun is shining in both my worlds today.  I have some running around to do so not much talking today.  I’m featuring the Bella Vista Cottage by Dad-Virtual Living-, which is a fantastic family beach home.  It’s perfect for the summer months.  I’m not showing it all, though I’m linking you to creators website, where you can view more pictures of this home and all its features.  Hive is bringing the Oceania decor set, which is the various palm trees for decor and landscaping along with the chair, summer bag, flip flops (one shown only), and coffee table. You can find both these items over at Collabor88.

I’m also showcasing some more great finds from the Arcade.  Trompe has the linen floral couch and ChicChica the smoothies, that sound just perfect for a day like this.  Look below for the rest of the items used today.

Guess that I did more talking than intended. Enjoy!

Modern day classics

Happy weekend!! Just some more fantastic decor that I’m showcasing today from sponsors and events including a hunt!  Fancy Decor continues to amaze with this modern set out now at the Red Light District, which I added the coffee table to go with it by [Merak], available now at the main store.

To keep within the same color scheme I used the silver pieces from (luc) set of cranes and thistle sculptures at Illuminate, a brand new home and garden event.  Few commons pieces by 22769 from their picnic by the sea gacha at the Arcade.

The Land of Rainbows sim has a Easter Egg Hunt taking place until April 6th, and trust me you really want to do this one as it has several great pieces of decor that you would want in your inventory.  I’m showing the chocolate bunny from HEXtraordinary and the black Easter egg is from also Known as, but I think it’s their actual egg that contained their gift. I used it to fill my bowl.

Well it’s been a lazy day as it was a holiday so I got to stay home. I only made one trip out to the store to grab things for tonight’s dinner.  It’s panini sandwiches in case you’re interested.  It’s fast and easy and very little clean up.

I’m showcasing the Modine Collection by Fancy Decor in collaboration with Commoner out now at Collabor88.  The collection is available in individual items or discounted as a fatpack.  I am featuring them using the Forest Skybox & Scene by (Milk Motion) also available at Collabor88.

The other items being featured today are the dancing flamingos, which are a part of a gacha set by Yokai at The Liaison Collaborative. The fox is by JIAN and it’s a previous release.

Have a great rest of your day or night!

Where is my mind….

My mind is on a lot things and then on nothing at all.  I know I’ve been very quiet lately and I really have a good reason. I just rather not bore you now, but no worries I will later.

Happy Tuesday morning! Today’s post is all about The Season’s Story, which is celebrating it’s 4th Anniversary, so be prepared to grab all the gifts along with the many wonderful items they have this Autumn round.

Apart from the fashion and home decor at the event I’m also featuring these fantastic horse chestnut trees by Heart Gardens  They were available at the last round of FaMESHed, but are now at their main store.  They are seasonal, so with a hud can be changed to whatever season you’d like.

Have a great one!

It’s always great to be able to collaborate when you get an opportunity, especially if you have such a busy blogging schedule.  This was my first time collaborating with Hara, and if you don’t know who she is you really need to go check out her work as its pretty amazing. This is my third time working with Exis and she’s super amazing as well and spectacular in style and well her very “existence” is never boring. ♥  I’ve included the links to both the girls blogs and Flickr below.

We are all wearing the amazing gacha set by Salt & Pepper called Blood Lust at the Arcade. I’m wearing it with the Tomoto hair by Tentacio also at the arcade, as well as Hara who is using the Rosy hair by Tableau Vivant.  Exis is using new hair called Lady by Truth.  All the details are below.

While I’m showing the last picture with items from 22769 from the Arcade and piano from DRD, I will be featuring them on their own post in the next days.

Have a great one!

Ca’Pepe

 “When darkness falls upon you, turn your face to the sun and your shadows will fall behind you.” ~ Daniel Wicomb

I know it’s going almost on two weeks since I last posted and all I can say is that my hasty departure without notice was not planned.  I have been out of SL due to a real life bereavement in my immediate close family.  If you’ve been with me a while and many of you have then you’ve probably read a post or two in the past when I’ve spoken of the closeness of my family.

While I will resume blogging, please bear with me for a while if I suddenly have nothing to say. I hope that everyone is well and please remember to tell those who are close to you how much you appreciate and love them.  To the closest of my friends who have transcended SL thank you so much for your love, support, thoughts and prayers during this time.  To all my sponsors thank you for your support and understanding as well.

These pictures done prior to my departure are from Concept and are their newest release.  The gacha set is called “Ca’Pepe” and it’s available at Kustom9. There are 16 pieces to the set with 5 rares and 11 commons.  The house is a rare and has the most land impact at 202.  To get a view of the full set as only several pieces are being shown, please click here.  If you click his name you can also see some of the creator’s own pictures of the set.

The leaning trees on the left side of the first picture are by Little Branch as is the front one on the other side. My apologies as I didn’t get a chance to make a note card of all the credits, but the rest of the landscape includes items from Alirium and Studio Skye.

La Hacienda

Hello everyone! If you haven’t made it to Chapter Four yet this month, then this is a really great time to go as the hidden chapter just started at the midway point.  What I’m showing today is from the regular round and it is the new gacha release by Ionic. The Hacienda, is known as either the ranch or the country estate and the complete gacha set is made up of 13 commons and 1 rare. I’m only showing a few pieces of the complete set, which you can view it here, but really you won’t be disappointed with any piece of the set that you receive.  Best wishes that you get the rare, because it’s pretty fantastic!
