Wisp of something new

Hello everyone!!  It feels like forever that I’ve blogged.  It’s only been like 9 days and yet it feels way longer.   There is lots I can share about what I’ve been doing, but it’s late and there are plentiful days ahead for me to share what’s been keeping me ultra busy  these days.  Though one of the things that has taken a lot of my time this last month or so is the new home and garden event that I’m intricately involved in.  I blogged about Blueprint about a month ago and shared that it was a new event specifically geared to bring you some of the best home and garden decor in Second Life.

That day arrived today and I’m so excited to be showcasing some items from the event.  This is just a glimpse of some of the great stuff you will find, so I hope you visit the event. You really do want to as you could be the winner of a mega-pack of prizes just by visiting the event in its first week of opening.

Visit the Blueprint web page for more information on the event itself.

Little quarrels

Morning! My favorite season is coming, so I’m going to start snapping in the autumn colors that I love.  I hope you all don’t mind that I’m leaving the hot summer days behind.  I might still do a few here and there.

Today I’m showcasing some amazing decor by The Loft & Aria currently at Uber. The name manteca is similar to mantequilla, which both mean butter. Though manteca to my Mexican Spanish is more like lard or grease and the latter is known as butter.  I love me some butter, cinnamon butter on fresh made pumpernickel bread is mouth watering.  Now I’m hungry!

Showing also some more cute cats by Mutresse for the Arcade.

TGIF!!

Communal

Good morning! Today I’m doing something a little different.  I’m going for that communal living feel and I used pets instead of people.  Actually, I’m kidding there.  Check out this amazing guitar shaped pool by DaD-Virtual Living- that is available at Uber this round.  I’m really not doing it justice by showing it by itself, as it has lots of animations for you to enjoy with family and friends, including some amazing dances.

I’m also showcasing unKindness wooden seating set also at Uber, which is great for indoors as well.  JIAN did another pet for us to have, the Boston terrier, also at Uber. Not to be missed is the trees by Little Branch, which are seasonal. That means by click you can chance to whatever season you want.  I’m showcasing it in three seasons.

There are some fairly new releases being shown by DaD and Trompe Loeil, so check out the credits below and have a fantastic day!

Stai calmo

This picture gives the indication I’m talking to myself and so we’ll just say I’m practicing my Italian.

Collabor88 opened its doors three days ago and there are some amazing stuff starting with this gorgeous necklace in tarnished silver by DRD.  If you click on the photo, you can see it up close.  I’m also showcasing the shoes I’m wearing by Mutresse, which comes with a HUD giving you 20 color options for different parts of the shoe.

Then lastly I’m showcasing the old water pump and washboard with tub by Bondi, out now at The Liaison Collaborative.  I did mod it a little by taking apart the buckets, so be mindful of that.  The other items being shown are the colorful chairs by Madras, formerly known as Mesh India and the ladder is part of a set by Serenity Style at The Liaison Collaborative as well.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
