Finding beauty in the small things

Happy Saturday!  Hope its been a great day so far for some of you and the start of one for the rest of us barely starting our day.  I’ve been up a while, yet mine has been relatively slow going.  I’ve got stuff to do throughout the day so it won’t be a boring one, maybe a tiring one by the end of the night.

Today, I bring you a bedroom scene and I have several more coming in the next days.

Enjoy!

The colors of Christmas

Hello everyone.  I’ll be pushing a few posts in the next days as I will be taking some time off for the holidays and then some.  There is such an abundance of holiday decor this season in Second Life.  The details are all below, though I want to point out a few things.  The first is a new skybox by Onsu.  Now I’m really not doing it justice as I’m just showing one room, and its a pretty size skybox.  I will be showcasing it again, though I highly recommend you visit the main store to view it. You’ll love it.  The mosiacs decor along with the deer wall decor are part of Simply Shelby’s 12 Days of Christmas Hunt at her store.  Each item is 1L, but well worth it.

Edit: I forgot to mention also that LTD has an ongoing “It’s an LTD Christmas” where you can get daily gifts. You have to be a group member of LTD to receive the gifts. Visit their website for more information.

Enjoy!

Winter vibes

Morning everyone.  The sun is peeking through my window hitting the side of my face as I sit here writing up this post.  It sort of serves as a good reminder that there is always light in times of darkness.  I know that I haven’t been writing all that much.  In all frankness I haven’t been in the best of spirits lately.  I’ll put it down to winter blues and keep moving forward until the lightness of spirit returns.

I will still keep featuring awesome home and garden decor in the mean time.  Though I may start spamming you here in the next day or so as I plan to take a holiday break very soon, but I want to show as much as possible until then.

My scene today is comprised of so many wonderful brands, so take a peek below for all the details.

House of Voodoo

Hello everyone.  I am showcasing another fantastic set by Death Row Designs, better known as DRD.  This time it is the Voodoo Shoppe collection available now at Uber until November 22nd.

The top picture shows the shoppe, and please note I have three buildings shown side by side.   In her description of this new release the creator mentioned taking a journey to New Orleans.  Since then my intention has been to create that same ambiance that I can recall from my visit to the city several years ago.  I hope you like it.

Definitely worth looking at, so take the taxi below to visit.

The smells of cooking


I don’t have much time to write anything as it took me quite a bit of time just to put these credits together and I’ve got to get back to work.  I had fun doing this picture though.  I love kitchen stuff even though I spend very little time in the kitchen these days.  I’m showcasing some amazing new releases by some fantastic designers, so make sure you peek below for the details.

Enjoy the rest of the day!

Burst of Fall

Over the weekend I had two aunts that came to visit and they were loving the fall leaves on the ground from the big tree that sits in front of the house.  It was one of the things that I was looking forward to when I moved to the north central part of the state, here in Florida.  It was having a fall season and being able to see the leaves change on the trees.  It’s also cooler weather during the winter season and sweater weather is comforting as is hot cocoa.

Today I am introducing a new brand called Aloe.  It made its debut at Collabor88, which if you’ve been around a while you know it’s one of the premiere shopping events of Second Life.  Lots of options with the items she brought us, the trees, pumpkins and tombstone. Make sure you check her out.  I’m also showing the new gacha collection by JIAN at the Epiphany.  More pets for you to go crazy with and these spoiled rotten rotties are adorable. The gacha key can be found here.

New round of Blueprint is open and one of the things you can find is the pumpkin fall gazebo by Merak, great for this season of pumpkins, spice and everything nice.  The cottage is a new release by Trompe Loeil, out now at Collabor88.  I’ll be featuring it again with some inside scenes.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more.
