Nothing says home like the smell of baking

ionic-005ps1

There was a time that I really enjoyed baking and did a lot of it as I always loved having some coffee dessert on hand for family and friends when they visited, even though I didn’t drink coffee myself.  I still enjoy it even if I bake mostly for a holiday or a special occasion these days. When I moved it was an opportunity to go through the the collection of baking pans, measurement cup sets, gadgets and tools that I acquired over the years.  I downsized considerably.

It’s no different here in Second Life, where I’ve collected a lot of kitchen ware over the years. I’m just not ready to downsize here just yet.  It’s all this wonderful realistic pieces of home goods, baking ware and gadgets that makes our kitchens come to life. I’m not disappointed with the newest releases by Ionic and Serenity Style.  I mixed both with some old gacha favorites to put this kitchen scene together. There’s just too many pieces to reference, but all items used are mentioned below.

I’m also featuring a new hair release by eXxEsS called Citron, which is a long hair style even if you can’t see the back. It includes the new “Breeze” technology that animates the hair and a texture HUD that has 56-single tone hair colors. The lovely dress with a lace pattern is from Noche and it’s available in several colors at The Liaison Collaborative. Make sure to go check out this event, it’s one of the best for home, garden, fashion and a whole lot more.

Anyways, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day, night or whatever it is for you right now.

I had good intentions to take the week between Christmas and the New Year to organize my inventory a little.  It didn’t quite work out that way and it had more to do with not being in the right frame of mind to tackle such a project right now.  Though it needs to happen fairly soon as I am getting ready to tip a number I never expected to reach and it really amazes me that I am still able to function.

I finally got around to opening some more of my arcade purchases and used a few pieces to go along with this bedroom furniture that is part of the “Gold & White” Gacha set by Bee Designs. It should be available at the main store or will be in a few days.

I hope to get one or two more posts in before the New Year and maybe then take a small break.
