Garden Escape 


While I like many things of Spring time when the flowers are blooming etc., it’s also not my favorite due to allergies.  I’ve got a headache that won’t quit today so I’m going to let you peruse my credits, but hope you like my garden escape.  It was fun putting together and I really love the hanging peppers and garlic.. time for some homemade salsa?

Have a great one!

Happy Monday!! Or lets hope it is — the day is young or at least it is here.  I’m back again today with some more great stuff from the Draftsman Event.  It’s ongoing until February 17th, so you have time to go check it out if you haven’t already been.

I’m showing the Victorian outbuilding by Galland Homes, a creator of high quality prefab homes and furnishings since 2007.  The outbuilding is 100% original mesh that has a land impact of 28.  It is materials ready, copy-able and modifiable.  Great for your landscaping decor.

007ps

I’m also featuring the piano and stool by Kei’s that is available in both a pg and adult version. It’s available in a vintage finish and a wood, with a land impact of 8 for the piano and 1 for the stool.

Until later!

While I am usually drawn more to neutral warm colors for my own personal likes when I am decorating my own homes — I do like white and light colors. I think part of the reason that I’m drawn to warmer colors is that I grew up in a large family and light colors was never an option. My paternal grandmother on occasion had light color furniture, but she lived on the west coast and visits there were for short weeks at a time.  My maternal grandmother had two living rooms, a formal and non formal one, but both were warm colors.

It’s one of the reasons to love about Second Life decorating. You can experiment as much as you like with decorating — trying something that may not be your usual style or colors and replace it so quickly if it’s not to your liking.  If you’re like me and often stick to warm colors how about shifting to something new.

Today, I’m showing a new release by a store that I just started blogging for known as (luc) boutique, that specializes in jewelry and home decor.  I hope to be showing you some more great things in the future.

I’m featuring a few pieces from their gacha at The Season’s Story.  There are 12 pieces total, of which I am using 9 listed below under credits. The pouf is by Soy, and it’s at this round of The Liaison Collaborative. You can also find the updo hairstyle that I’m wearing by D!va and the fur jacket by Mimikri at the same event.

The lingerie Mimiry in black is by Mushilu for Oh My Gacha.  You can view the gacha key here.

Happy Saturday!

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.

Merry Christmas!

Today has been a day of baking in preparation for tomorrow and I am lucky to have several sisters and also a niece, so that we get to share in the making of desserts and food.  Today I got assigned making a fudge candy, another milk chocolate dessert and apple bread. The last being a family favorite, which I’ve been making ever since my aunt shared her recipe with me on a trip to Seattle back in 2007.

Though I wanted to take some time to come blog my Christmas post, so that I could wish all my readers, fellow bloggers and everyone who drops by a very blessed Merry Christmas.  May your day be filled with love and laughter, no matter who you spend it with.

While I would have wanted to do a single picture together with little me, it’s just impossible lately to log both of us at the same time to do it.

Again, have a wonderful day tomorrow!!

Merry Christmas!!!!

Nostalgia

circa-001

This year has been a bit busier than what I remember it being previous years. I know in large it’s due to taking on more blogging commitments and I recognize that simply from the fact that I have yet to open a quarter of my arcade items that were purchased and not given to me as a blogger package.  I really have no problem with it. If I didn’t enjoy this I simply wouldn’t do it.

I also have not had time to unpack some of the advent or hunt gifts I find as I am always on the lookout for home and garden decor.  I find hunts are sometimes one of the best sources for me finding more one of a kind items or the unusual or even home decor stores I wasn’t aware of.

005

So last night I decorated a whole cottage with a bunch of Christmas decor mostly from decor items received from hunts, advent and group gifts and maybe a few other pieces bought or given through a blogger pack.  It gave me a feeling of nostalgia and a small dose of guilt of not doing it sooner.

Today I’m showcasing a new hair style by Tukinowaguma that’s available at Tres Chic. It’s a sweet and stylish updo that’s perfect for those holiday parties as is the Antonina dress by Fame Femme, that has a fun bow going down the open back that adds a little sexiness to the dress.  Both of these items can be found in different colors at the event.

The decor being featured is by [CIRCA], which are items in their Holiday Advent Tree. There is a group that you need to join, it’s the [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents (in-world) and it’s free to new members.  Each day items have been added to the squares on the wall tree near the inside entrance. Items do cost from $1 – $75 lindens and some even at $0 lindens.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get these items until a couple of days ago, so it’s a bit of a short notice and hopefully she will leave them out a bit longer as the group will be closing the Eve of Dec. 24th.  The wall strip art in red plaid is  available currently at the Midwinter Fair.

Edited: A note on the advent for [CIRCA].  The creator will be opening the advent for days 8-24 on December 24th, so you will still have time to grab anything you like from those days.

Have a fabulous Wednesday Thursday!
