In between seasons.

Happy Monday and Labor Day!  I hope you got today off and enjoying.  My day seems to have gotten away with running errands.

Today I’m showcasing a new build by Trompe Loeil.  The Joralie cottage is so lovely and I was undecided to get right into doing a country scene or by the ocean scene.  I opted for a little of both. The footprint on this home is 31.1 meters by 27.2 meters with a land impact of 109.  Stonework and wood planking siding with a wraparound deck of serts. You just need to go view it — its got that warm and cozy feel to it.

I’m using new shrubs by Little Branch, which are season change.  If you’re still stuck in between moving from summer to fall, then do what I did and use a little of both.  I’m also showing the brown rock landscaping from Pandemonium.  I twisted a piece of rock to make an A.  I bet you think it stands for Alexa.  Alright.  You could be right.

Two pictures today just so you get a clear view of the house as well.

Enjoy the day!

Happy Sunday!  I didn’t realize how much I packed into this room until I did all the credits.  I’ve been having one of those non creative time periods.  I deleted over 2 dozen photos this morning amounting to two days of work.  It is what it is sometimes.  I’m sure all of you have fallen in to this period a time or two.  If not, share your secrets.

My photos today cover two new events that I’m lucky to be a part of.  The Arcade and FaMESHed, both opened today.  Grab all the details below.

The silence of growing things

Good morning!  It looks like the path of Hurricane Dorian has shifted as this morning, which is good news for Florida.  In any case, it’s better to be prepared than not as projections are not always quite on the mark.  To fellow Floridians — stay safe!!

Today’s photo is featuring new items for the Azibo collection.  It’s a bedroom set which has an organic feel to it and really can fit most styles with the right additional elements.  Since I was feeling the organic vibe I decided to dress it up with plants.

Lots of texture options with the bed —  4 bed frame choices, 8 pillow and 5 for the throw blanket, 10 duvet fabrics and 5 for the fringe.  Chair has some upholstery choices and the side table and mirror have wood finish options.  Grab it in either pg or adult, with some props included.

Whispers of the past

Good morning! Hope it’s going well for everyone.  Showcasing a new couch by Contrast at Shiny Shabby.  It’s available in three colors — blue, white and black as shown with her and couple animations that are just fantastic.

I’m also featuring more of Nutmeg from the Attic Hideout Collection, also at Shiny Shabby.  You will also find other pieces by Nutmeg, which can be found at the main store.

Enjoy!

Room with a view

Good morning!  Today’s picture is showcasing a couple brands at current events.  Fancy Decor has a couple new collections available.  The first Maddox is a new bed that also introduces a new extensive menu of animations, which includes things like breakfast in bed, cuddles and adult fun or a pg version.  The set comes with decorative pieces, which I’ve mixed in with the other collection available called the Celeste.  It is the dresser with mirror and other decorative pieces as well.  The dresser is available in a few colors, so go take a look.

The skybox I am featuring the new decor is by KraftWork.  It comes with a texture HUD to change each of the 5 rooms of the skybox.  Options for the floors and ceiling as well for the doors/windows/frames too and environment options. I went for the night view.  You can get a full view at the demo site.

Cry a river. build a bridge. get over it.

One of the things that I really enjoy doing in second life is landscaping.  I can easily get lost in putting together a scene or just decorating my own land.  That said, I am always on the lookout for new and different and today I’m happy to showcase the brand !Pandemonium.  They are not new, though they recently released some new mesh products that are absolutely gorgeous.

I’ll be using more of their stuff in future posts, but today I’m featuring the shallow bridge in mossy brown and the mossy grey pile of rocks near it.  Go check out the store, you won’t be disappointed.

Happy Sunday! Today I’m showcasing a new set by Nutmeg.  Let me tell you it’s a huge set.  Each and every piece just left me in awe to the quality, the details of textures.  It’s extremely well done.

The beauty of each piece makes you just sigh.  Go check it out for yourself and be amazed as I am.

This old photograph

The other day I was looking at something on Flickr and the number of photos that I had on Flickr caught my eye.  It’s 2,785 pictures and with the first taken in 2012.  That’s a lot of years and a lot of photos.  I’ve no idea what I will do once I decide to hang up my decorating hat.

Some of my most treasured photos have never made it to the blog or to Flickr.  These I will keep close to my heart. Just random thoughts.

Today I’m showcasing a new item by [ zerkalo ], which is absolutely beautiful piece of furniture.  The old chaise lounge has several texture options and is currently available at Kustom9.

Enjoy!
