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!

Enjoy the little things

Hello everyone! Last night I got reasonably good internet reception to log into SL without getting stuck every few minutes that I decided to do a couple of quick scenes and take pictures.

I managed two pictures, so I’m quite pleased. The picture for today is mostly items from the Vintage Fair and a couple from this round of Cosmopolitan.  The skin I’m wearing is part of the Mercury skin gacha set by YS&YS at the Arcade. You can find the key here to see the rest of the tones in the set.

I’ve got a couple more days before I return home, but hoping to post my other picture later tonight or tomorrow.

Have a great weekend!

There is purpose in your season of waiting

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day for us here in America. Normally it’s a relaxing day for us and usually we do a cookout, though not this year. My siblings are further away now with making moves to other states, so getting together isn’t as easy.  That aside.. today is a day of remembrance for those who served in our armed services protecting our country. In this day and age and from what we see all over the world it’s never been more important to feel blessed for those men and woman who served and those who serve now.

I wish everyone a fantastic and peaceful day wherever you are.  Today’s post is all about Cosmopolitan.  If you’re not familiar with this event, it’s one that takes place every two week bringing you an array of new releases in clothes, furniture, poses and everything that makes our lives here in Second Life a little more enjoyable. This round will end on June 4th, so you still have time to grab some fabulous goodies.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!

Sweet Haven Cottage

Happy Monday! It’s a brand new day and a brand new month and a fresh round of events to look forward to.  Today FaMESHed opens up and I’m showing the latest creation by DaD Design.

The Sweet Haven Cottage is a nice one floor beach house with a land impact of 56 that has a separate modular deck that you can add to it.  All the windows in the house can be opened and it’s available in adult or pg version because of the pillows that have single and couple poses.

I was going to go with typical white on the exterior, because by clicking the light switch near the front door in the interior you get the menu to change the exterior. I opted to go with another color for something different, but if yellow isn’t your thing there are plenty of other color choices.

Have a great one!

Backyard Garden

The last days have been sort of in the rushing mode for me as I’m posting right before I have to leave somewhere or as as I’m starting to close out for the night and have enough energy left just to post. Last night I discovered that I may have to go out of town again for a few days and I won’t have access to SecondLife.  I don’t particularly care to use a laptop for using SL  anyways, but this means I need to get as much done before Sunday.

Today I’m bringing some garden stuff from a few creators that I blog for.  The majority is from THOR, which is their Garden Life gacha set available now at The Gacha Guardians event.  There are 13 pieces, with 12 commons and 1 rare and then two gifts of the guardians.  Those are received when a player does 15 pulls on a single machine.  Visit their website for more information on this event, how to play and other exciting news.

I’m also showing items by [ETNIA], an original mesh/ ethnic interior decor store that I will be blogging for. They are participating in this round of Crossroads with a gardening set called the Cute Frida that includes a round gardening table, some decor pots and plants. You can’t miss them as one has the familiar trademark face of Frida and the floral long standing one on the round table is another. Stay tuned for some more creative designs from this store.

Little Branch is participating in this round of FaMESHed and while I’m not showing the actual tree they are releasing for this round in this post, I am showing some of the grasses that you can get with the purchase of their item at the event.

While I’m not in so much of a rush today I am hungry so that’s it for now. Oops.. I’m forgetting two things I wanted to mention.  The first is that Draftsman has an open photo contest for home and garden decor with a time travel theme that anyone can participate in.  The date is fairly close as you have only until April 7th, but still some time if you want to compete and win some awesome prizes.  Get the details here.  The other is that the 4th Annual Castle, Home & Garden Contest & Expo is seeking bloggers. You can get details on this event here.

Have a great one!
