Wanderlust spirit

Happy Sunday to everyone. I’m a bit wordy today, so to break up the text I moved the picture to the middle. If you just look at my pretty pictures.. sorry, you have to just scroll down a little to find it.

It’s still fairly early at that start of writing this and if you know anything about me then you might know that I’m definitely not a morning person. Though over the last 15 years sleeping in even after staying up late hasn’t been much of an option.

Though I’m sure that I’ll fall prey to a nap this afternoon, especially as I’m not feeling too great and the reason I hit the bed early last night. I think my body wants to catch a cold and I’m all sniffles this morning.

Before I forget and mention what I’m showcasing today I want to give a shout out to a silent follower of mine from Spain who left me a very nice message yesterday. It made me smile the rest of the day when I read it. It’s always nice to hear from someone on how much they enjoy your blog and appreciate what you do. I don’t say it enough, but I am appreciate to everyone who follows, reads or just enjoys my pictures.

Now for what I am showing today — more great items to be found at 6th Republic, which opened its doors yesterday.  This event is based on Europe, so every designer got to choose what part of Europe they wanted to represent. The Hive has this cute seaside shack with 11-15 land impact that comes in a raised or non-raised and with or without doors and two subtle color versions inspired from Cornwall, UK county beaches. I’m using one with doors, but did remove the scripts to keep the doors open.  If you peek just inside you see the rug and the lamp on the table that are from CMYK, another creator participating at the 6th Republic event.  These are created representing Greece.

The last items being shown are the decor plants by 22769.  These are available at Shiny Shabby that runs until May 15th.  The 6th Republic is open until May 20th, so you still have plenty of time to get to these two events to grab the latest and greatest!

We repeat what we don’t repair

Happy Friday and hopefully for some of you it’s already a great start to the weekend.  I have to make a trip into downtown later today and that’s always a bit hectic at any time on a Friday, so I’m not looking forward to the traffic rush as everyone is looking to get somewhere.

Today I’m featuring some decor items starting with the auto repair shop by Nomad currently available at Draftsman that is still ongoing until May 17th.  The footprint of the shop is 11 x 16M, with a land impact of 50 and available with copy/mod rights.

The truck decor by Mesh India at the newest round of Cosmopolitan came in handy for this scene as you can see there was a truck needing repair.  The truck decor is a gacha set.

Last item that I want to mention is the new red elder trees by Little Branch, which are available at Draftsman as well.  These are season trees so that means on touch you can pick the season you want your leaves to be.

That it’s for now.. have a great one!

The makings of a simpler time and place

I love creating scenes that make me think of my childhood. I grew up in a rural area where we had places to roam free on our bikes and you just about knew every kid in the neighborhood.  Every house on both sides of the streets also had clotheslines with sheets or other clothes flapping in the wind. We had roosters that crowed every morning and we had the ice cream truck show up every afternoon almost every day.  A simpler time and place indeed. I miss those days.

Well it’s a fairly new month even though we just hit the one week mark and a new month always brings in a fresh round of events. The Men’s Department is one of them that just opened its doors a couple of days ago.  Most items are for men, which makes it a great place to shop for the men in your life.  Though from time to time they also have some fabulous home and garden decor like this set by Anhelo.

The garage is the highest in land impact at only 21 prims, with the others ranging from 1 to 6. Great details on everything and sure to make a great addition to your landscape. I’m also showing the newest tree by Little Branch. The magnolia is a beautiful addition to their line of trees to help your Spring decorating and available at this new new round of FaMESHed.

Wising everyone a happy Friday and the start of a good weekend!

unkindness-024

If you’ve made it into Collabor88 this round you know the theme is all about fitness and unKindness has a yoga studio that is just fabulous to get your bums in shape. I seriously love this yoga mat. I went through all the animations it has to offer and it really has some awesome yoga and exercise animations that are smooth and flow easily with your avatar. It was hard to choose one to take a picture with, but this particular one won out as I thought of how it would feel to even attempt it in real life. I don’t know. I’m not trying it any time soon. It makes me feel sore just looking at it!

Most of the items pictured are from the set including those neon signs of stud angel or stud devil.  I know — decisions decisions, but how about one of each? The bodysuit that I’m wearing is from {Luxuria}, which is an applier system and can be found at this round of The Liaison Collaborative.

Have a great start to your weekend!

Warm and cozy

bee-designs-0162

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.

All the time someone is watching you

dad-013ps4

I’m in the groove right now listening to 80’s music, which was one of the highlights of my teenage years.  When I was putting this scene together the song, “Somebody’s Watching Me,” is what came to mind.  For most of my career, at least the past 15 years, I had a very public life where I had to get used to the fact that there is always someone watching you.

I kid you not. It was a bit uncanny when comments would reach me that someone would see me at a certain place or I said this or that, all unbeknownst to me.  I was still in this career when I started Second Life that at times I was a little apprehensive with it. Though I’m no longer in that career and fully embracing not having to censor everything that I do or say.

Today I am showing DaD Design’s latest creation, which is the ‘Wrought Iron Vintage Bed’.  It’s 100% original mesh and is available in both PG and Adult and has 4 different texture colors (white – gray – dark grey – black) accessible by clicking on the headboard.

You can find more details on the bed below the credits.
