Home office

I’m back this evening with another post and again it’s a mixture of fashion and decor.  I’ll begin with the home decor items as this is my first post introducing you to this year’s Relay For Life Home & Garden Expo that just opened yesterday and will end on June 4th.  It’s an annual event that raises money for Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL). The Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event, and RFL of SL is one of its virtual counterparts. Please visit both the Home & Garden Expo website and the RFL of SL website for more information.

The exhibitors participating at this event are required to have two 100% donation items at the Expo. These items must be new and exclusive to the Expo for the duration of the event.  Bloggers for this event are assigned to a particular sim and they are required to blog any donation items from their sim first before they can blog any other items. I believe there is a total of 9 sims for this event and I happened to get assigned to one that had relatively few creators and while I was a bit disappointed that none of these creators had blogger boxes its actually given me a little freedom to blog who ever had boxes out at other sims.  That being the case I am going to try and do my very best to feature as many creators as I can during the event that will include a mixture of donated and other items.

Today’s post has items by World of Wood, a store that specializes in quality wooden homes, lodges, cabins and furniture.  I just really liked this office set and bookshelves that come with several texture options for the wood.  I like dark wood so I chose mahogany.  Theory is a store that carries classic and contemporary furnishings and they have the English chest on barley twist legs and the brass box terrarium at the event.  The last item featured from this event is the trellis with orange climbing roses just outside the window by TerraShop, a store that makes quality mesh flowers and plants.

Then I’m featuring items by 22769, a well known store that carries a little bit of everything in home and garden decor.  They are participating in a few events this month. The Colonial lounge set is their release for The Challenge Event.  The set includes the bench, side table, elephant picture and the pineapple lamp.  The plant on the stand and on the chest are their release for this month’s round of The Liaison Collaborative, which I’ve previously featured in another recent post. The plate with donuts is from their Sugar Shock gacha set at The Gacha Garden. If you want to see the key for this set, visit here.  The cute puppy underneath the bench is by {Your Dreams}, and is at Tres Chic.

If you’re still reading at this point, thank you! Most of the fashion items are by creators participating at this month’s round of Tres Chic.  Hair by Sintiklia, with this lovely dress by Clef de Peau and watch by [Zoom].  The heels I’m wearing is a new release by Empire at this round of Collabor88. The pose used is by an lar [poses] available at Tres Chic.

Peruse the credits for everything else shown in the pictures.

Grateful for the small things, big things and everything in between

Happy Saturday everyone!

It’s a rainy kind of day here as we’re having on and off thunderstorms throughout the day. It just called for a lazy day at home and quite perfect as I have to get some reading in.

It’s another mixture of fashion and home decor in today’s post with items from all over the grid as there’s just an overabundance of events going on. Some that are fairly new and others well known monthly ones.

Check everything out below.. and have a fabulous rest of the day!

Far from home, but closer than ever

It’s a lovely Tuesday morning, despite it being 81°F outdoors and if you add the humidity on top of that it’s pretty uncomfortable for someone who isn’t used to the heat. I’m used to it. Preferably indoors with air condition and a refreshing drink. That reminds me that I have a mango to slice into later on.

Today I’m showing fashion from two events that opened up in the last days, On9 and The Liaison Collaborative.  Both great events that have a mixture of fashion, decor and poses and lots more, so make sure to go check them out.

Have a fabulous Tuesday!

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!

There is purpose in a season of waiting…

006

We were having another cold spell where temperatures dropped into the chilly 30 plus degrees last night and it made me sort of lazy to jump into Second Life even though it was my 6th Rez Day. Instead I snuggled under covers and read.  This meant I didn’t take any photos to blog and then when I attempted to log in today I found that they were doing maintenance so login was disabled for some.

In short, I finally made it in-world to put this scene together, process the photos and mark down credits, which I am leaving you to peruse as it’s close to dinner time.

The Devonshire Manor

dad-0122ps

The week off I took from blogging has been productive. I managed to shave off a little over 10,000 items in my inventory and organized my folders  as well.  I also tackled going through a couple of my received folders that contained items purchased off market place that probably date back to when I started.  Those crazy nights when I was bored and used my iPad to visit the market place and bought things I liked.  I loved finding all the landscape stuff I purchased that I didn’t remember having.

Anyways, it’s great to be back to blogging.  I actually started yesterday posting a picture to my other blog as I had an event that I am committed to that had already begun.  I have quite a few decor items to show in the coming days, but I thought to start with showing the latest home by DaD Design and some new landscape by Little Branch.

The Devonshire Manor is a beauty of a home and it’s huge in size with a footage of 36.8 x 30, and has a land impact of 268. I absolutely love the majestic look of the home from the outside and could visualize landscaping it in many ways. Though I opted to go for a cleaner look with a  narrow stream of water to run through as any body of water is always so peaceful.  I’ve included the creator details on the house below as well as their ad for inside of the house.

The trees by Little Branch are the single trees in the front of the home. The first starting from the bench side are the Wild Sassafras, V1 & V2 and then the next after the twisted is the Maple Forest and the last is Oak Wood. All the trees are seasonal, meaning that on click you can pick what season you want.  I kind of took advantage and used all of them on this post, but will probably use them again in outdoor posts.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
