Dine out in Comfort

Two of my favourite things to do – relax and eat – what could be better. The cats think so, too, indeed one of them is considering that fried chicken dish full of tasty morsels, especially while the cook’s missing.

This gorgeous house is by KraftWork and you can pick up a copy at 6º Republic which runs until May 20th. It was a stand out product for me at the Event and it’s called the “Puget Sound Retreat”. Perfect for summertime scenes, you’ve got a nice large patio in partial shade and an airy spacious living space which contains shelving, sink and counter top area, huge glass windows, glass door and stairs to the roof which will naturally increase the floor space no end. Also included is a nice animated fire prim so you can either use that in the internal fireplace to make it cosy at night or the outside one for barbecues and evening cuddles. I filled that with flowers in the photograph. And… you also get a handy wall panel which I used on the building here. It could also be utilised inside to block some of the glass if you didn’t want the building to be so open. I did look up the name Puget Sound that the KraftWork building is named after and it turns out to be an area of the North Western US state of Washington. It’s an inlet of the Pacific Ocean and looks like the sort of place that would be great for sailing. That’s info for my Eurozone and Eastern readers!

 

 

 

Featured is a new food gacha by unKindness and that’s at 6º Republic as well. Yummy is all I can say and it’s really good because you get both preparation and finished product. For instance, with that tasty fried chicken the cat is after in the skillet, you have a corresponding chicken prep product. It makes for excellent roleplay and that is part of the fun of SL®. Appreciate the Country Fixin’s gacha.

 

 

Chilling out is the other kitty on [ zerkalo ]‘s new bed, from a gacha which is positively brimming with luxury, this is the Relaxed Corner gacha and it’s currently at the new round of Kustom9. Now the Rare for this is a rather nice fireplace but there are also two beds, one of which is Adult and those are Commons. So… a chance of winning an Adult bed as a Common, can’t be bad. You may have to wait a while to get into Kustom9, I tried today and it was no go even in the quiet Eurozone time. Good job Zerks is a sponsor of mine! The cushions, quilt, and bed all have really nice animations and the Knotted Rope lights are most unusual. A nice lot of décor items.

 

 

22769 made up a lot of the other décor from the Backyard Patio gacha which you’ll find at May Gacha Garden Event. Very nice set and it includes a smashing seahorse on plinth piece of décor which I really appreciated because I collect animal inspired décor pieces, the house is full of them. 22769 is all user created Mesh and the furniture animations are original as well. Generally, they are a prolific and creative design house which has stood the test of time. I recommend visiting their mainstore.

 

 

The garden is made exclusively from Little Branch products and I must say, designer Cari produces exquisite trees and shrubs that are suitable for all season landscaping. They are realistic and versatile and you usually get bonus plant items in each tree pack – I’ve detailed those below. I love the woven trunk of the Flowering Dogwood, it’s just beautiful and showed up well in my photograph. Cari has worked hard on reducing the Land Impact of the Little Branch trees over time and now you can use quite a lot of them for a reasonable outlay – make orchards, forests, even pack your garden with trees if you want to without breaking the prim bank. The mainstore is a delight to visit and would make a good first date (because it’s interesting, beautiful and nothing contentious) or just because you love the natural world.
