Of all pleasures, the fruit of labor is the sweetest

I’m back today with another post. As it’s already shown itself, this month is going to be a busy one in both worlds.  I want to make sure that I meet all my commitments this month, so you may start to see some double posts in the next couple of weeks.  As always, it’s dependent on what is happening in my real life.

What I’m bringing to you this time is another wonderful gacha set called the Casablanca created by Concept}, out now at Shiny Shabby.  I created this space also using his door gacha available at the main store.  Just in time to complete my scene, Hive made a new release of plants available at Collabor88.

Stay tuned! Lots of great stuff to come!

It’s you and me always

Happy Valentines Day!!  It’s a quickie today and once again I’m breaking my self-imposed post every other day rule.  I think that’s why I’m breaking it, because who likes rules.  I have lots more to say on this subject, but limited time right this moment.  I have returned to work this week and my intent was to ease back in slow, but if you know me I hardly do anything slow.

I have a mixture of fashion with home and garden, so I hope you enjoy my photos and as always all the details of where you can find anything shown is listed below.  If you have any questions, always free to ask me in comments or look me up in-world (Spunknbrains).

Have a great one!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

You could say that I’ve moved off the fall pictures into winter and it’s certainly another of my favorite seasons to take photos of.  I don’t get snow in real so it’s something that I like to enjoy in Second Life and thankfully there is no shoveling of snow required.

This scene was put together using the newest home release by DaD Designs, available now at District 20.  Below credits is all the details on what you can expect with the purchase of the Woodpecker Cottage.  I’ll be showing the inside in another post, so stay tuned for more.

Just in time for getting your home all decorated for Christmas is the new winter decorations by Dust Bunny at Tannenbaum.  As I was decorating the outside of the home I couldn’t help and chuckle as it brought back memories of doing this in real. It’s been a few years since we’ve done this kind of elaborate outdoor decorating, but there is something quite magical and fun when you drive up at night and your house is all lighted up in an array of Christmas colors.  These decorations are quite awesome and so realistic and fantastic for indoor and outdoor.

I’m also showcasing some new garden chairs by Concept}.  There is a total of 4 chairs in different colors. They each have a land impact of 5, are copy and mod and hold single and couple animations. Available now at Shiny Shabby.

The last item is a new release by Little Branch. The Choke Berry tree is 4 seasons, which means that on a click you get the menu that allows you to choose which season you want your tree.  It’s now available at SaNaRae. Plus I want to mention that Little Branch has reopened it’s in-world store and it’s a pretty awesome build.  Unfortunately, my computer couldn’t handle the sim and it kept freezing when I visited.  If I get a chance to visit again I’ll snap some pictures to show, but take a visit and enjoy the sim and all the wonderful landscape.

Have a great one!

The ‘WOODPECKER COTTAGE’ is a beautiful Victorian Cottage perfect for all locations.

The cottage is composed with a large veranda. As you enter the front doors your greeted the Main room which is perfect as your living room. On the sides of the living room there is 2 other rooms with big sliding doors.

The windows of the whole house can be opened and closed which are arranged in different heights to create the most natural look.

Something so great about all DAD DESIGN ‘homes’ is that you can customize your home so easy. All you need to do is find the button that is in the room and touch it. There is over 74 pre-loaded textures and you can change it by each room. Also you can change the color of the exterior walls and the texture of the floors.
