Miramar

It’s fairly late and I had good intentions to try to get my sleep schedule back on track by getting to bed early.  It didn’t work out too well since I’m still up.  Then I started to ponder on the things I needed to get done tomorrow making my morning fairly busy somewhat that I figured it be a great thing to post now.

I’m getting my first post in for the Home Show that started on the 8th and will run through the 29th of this month.  It has a little bit of everything so something you definitely want to go check out.  I’m featuring the Miramar set by Newchurch, which consists of the teak furniture pictured.  Newchurch put a little spin on his releases this month by making part of the collective set available at another event. The umbrella, chaise and side tables that I modded to make them taller and squarer are at the On9 Event that just began as well.

Dysfunctionaly is participating at the Home Show with the swaying spring bushes there in the background that on touch brings up the menu to change colors.  There are a few versions included from tall, fat and corner bush.  The other item that is available by the same creator is the string lights.  Other items at the Home Show is the bonsai poodle topiaries by MadPea and the flamingo lamp by %Percent.

I’m also showcasing items from the Mount Olympus Gacha by unKindness.  The pavilion, streamers, fountain light and vases. The gacha is at Lootbox.  The stiks with lights is another item by unKindness available at Limit8.  Then last but certainly not least is the Sphinx copper statue by 22769 that I brought to table top size, because it also makes a great decor piece for inside the home.

Hopefully, there are no major spelling errors as I am going to take the easy way out and post without a reread.

Have a great start to your weekend!

Flamingo Island

Hello everyone! I’m still a bit groggy from a bit of a sleep in, but it’s a holiday weekend here and I was in a dream state kind of sleep. My dream last night was riding a horse and then found myself stopping to do something and was inside of a building with my horse, and as I was looking at some stuff in another room someone took my horse.  I retrieved it and then woke up around that part. No idea where that dream came from.. though gives me the urge to look for my horse in-world and go riding.

There were no humans around when I was shooting this picture so I asked some friendly flamingos to join me.  I’ve also used this title before in a previous post from last year when I used some flamingos in a photo for a tropical fair post. Interestingly enough it was also on a 3rd day of the month, except it was June then.

Anyways, today’s picture is all about summer fun showcasing two ongoing events –Summerfest and The Gacha Guardians.  Check out credits for all the details and as always any questions feel free to ask me.

Quiet living spaces

I come from a large family so it was anything but quiet at my house growing up. My mother definitely deserves our gratitude and appreciation and so much more for having to raise a whole bunch of rowdy kids. Most of the siblings are just one or two years apart so there wasn’t much rest in between.

Having a living space like this I decorated would have never been ideal for our home situation. Living in Florida most of my life never required a fireplace either.  The only times I remember ever being around them was up north on the west coast and during our trip to the smoky mountains.

In any case.. it’s fun to decorate all sorts of ways here in Second Life.  Most of the decorations are from Fancy Decor at the Arcade with a few of his older items and some mingled from other designers.  I’m showcasing also one of the past releases by Galland Homes, which can be found at the main store.

Fun at the drive-in diner

Getting in another post today to share with you the start of the Vintage Fair, plus it seems it’s a theme that has crossed over onto other events this month.  Participating at the Vintage Fair Event is [Tia], who brings a bit of nostalgic fun with her release of the Betty’s Diner Set.  The second picture gives you close up of some of the items from the set, which is the retro telephone booth with public phone, one of the signs of a few in the set, and the table with four color chairs and the items on all the tables. Fantastic set to give you a little taste of a by-gone era.

I’m also showing you a new release by unKindness, which is Lucky’s Drive-In Diner set at Collabor88. The set includes the larger pieces and the connected tables and drive-in menu signs.  It’s another fantastic set in my opinion.  Collabor88 runs from the 8th of the month to 6th of July and the Vintage Fair goes from 9th of June to the 25th of June. If you click on the logo for the event below the credits, it will take you directly to the web site where you can get all sort of other great information on the event and whose participating as well as the map of where each participant is located.

I have been wanting to try this method of using a frame on my photos and thought this was a good opportunity to try as it lends to the whole vintage look. It’s not something that I will do all the time, but might just try it again.

Have a fantastic one!
