Ocean breezes

Good morning!..and Happy Father’s Day!!

The sun is shining in both my worlds today.  I have some running around to do so not much talking today.  I’m featuring the Bella Vista Cottage by Dad-Virtual Living-, which is a fantastic family beach home.  It’s perfect for the summer months.  I’m not showing it all, though I’m linking you to creators website, where you can view more pictures of this home and all its features.  Hive is bringing the Oceania decor set, which is the various palm trees for decor and landscaping along with the chair, summer bag, flip flops (one shown only), and coffee table. You can find both these items over at Collabor88.

I’m also showcasing some more great finds from the Arcade.  Trompe has the linen floral couch and ChicChica the smoothies, that sound just perfect for a day like this.  Look below for the rest of the items used today.

Guess that I did more talking than intended. Enjoy!

Without great solitude no serious work is possible…

Title by Picasso

My inventory is bulging at the seams and at some point I need to take some time off just to do a thorough job of cleaning it up.  Some time last year, at year end, I lost  90% of my 2016 inventory and that helped a lot in bringing it down some as it was a considerable amount of lost inventory.  The sad thing is I couldn’t even tell you what a third of the stuff was in that 2016 folder.  My blog helped me a lot to figure out what I lost, but there is always so much I don’t blog that I purchase on whim in those moments of.. “oh I like this” and it somehow ends up in my inventory.

So heads up I’ll be taking a break in the very near future.  Today I’m showcasing the arcade gacha set by 22769.  I believe it’s an exclusive to the arcade and will not be sold once the arcade is over, so it’s a great time to visit and shop and get these great pieces of decor into your inventory.  Dahlia has the La Dolce Vita set for this last round of Deco(c)rate and showing some past releases by Ariskea that you can find at the mainstore.

Enjoy the weekend!

Self-service you say?

I remember as a little girl when we used to go fill up our family car at the gas stations and there was always an attendant who would come out and gas up the vehicle and clean the windows. I would love that service back!

Today I am showcasing this amazing set that Anehlo brought us for this round of the Arcade. It has everything you need to create your own self-service station or employ an attendant and I’ll come gas up there!

Take a peek at credits for everything else shown.

It’s really hot out

Morning! Just enough time to post this before I head to work.  Showcasing some more great items from the Arcade.  Cuteness from Mutresse who brings us otters this round that are just so cute.  The pond is the rare item in the set, but you can’t go wrong with any pull.  Read below for the rest of the items being shown.  I’m also not showing everything of each set, so you really must visit the Arcade to see all the wonderful items this round.

I’m also featuring items from FaMESHed.  The beautiful array of colorful wildflowers are from Heart, which are amazing and each pack just has so many different clusters of flowers in it that it’s worth the buy.  The tree in the background is from Little Branch and as most of their products it’s seasonal by the touch of the menu.

Got to run…. so enjoy your day!

Fancy that.

I’m spamming you all again with doing a second post.  I hope you don’t mind.  It’s all the wonderful home and garden stuff that keeps coming month after month.  This time it’s the Arcade with it’s June round that brings us all this goodness.

You will note that I didn’t put the landmark, as the event doesn’t open until June 1st and I’ll make sure to post it then.  In the meantime, make sure you go view the gallery at the Arcade website, so you can put your list together or you just might go broke.  Besides the wonderful home decor from this event I’m also showcasing one of the newest releases by DaD -Virtual Living-, the skybox I’m using.  You can find all the details below.

Have a great night!

Modern day classics

Happy weekend!! Just some more fantastic decor that I’m showcasing today from sponsors and events including a hunt!  Fancy Decor continues to amaze with this modern set out now at the Red Light District, which I added the coffee table to go with it by [Merak], available now at the main store.

To keep within the same color scheme I used the silver pieces from (luc) set of cranes and thistle sculptures at Illuminate, a brand new home and garden event.  Few commons pieces by 22769 from their picnic by the sea gacha at the Arcade.

The Land of Rainbows sim has a Easter Egg Hunt taking place until April 6th, and trust me you really want to do this one as it has several great pieces of decor that you would want in your inventory.  I’m showing the chocolate bunny from HEXtraordinary and the black Easter egg is from also Known as, but I think it’s their actual egg that contained their gift. I used it to fill my bowl.
