~ A collaboration between Isabelle & Moz! ~

Here’s Isabelle’s Blog and her video on YouTube and it’s from Harriet’s point of view 🙂

Here’s the same thing from Gabriel’s point of view:-

Yeah, well, I was trawling through Tinder when I came across this girl who looked like that reporter from the BBBC, the one I’d never stand a chance with.  Not that it was a second best thing because the Tinder babe… she made me laugh straight off, her profile was cool, she had a killer sense of humour and her appearance was a bonus so I made the connection! We decided to meet at the Equal10 Event and I ended up taking one of the new pups which was ailing a bit because the others had pushed it out of the basket, but after a few cuddles it calmed down and went to sleep.

So I TPed over to the Event and tried not to be distracted by new stuff from the likes of my namesake to mention but a few (it was Equal10’s first anniversary so there was a crapton of stuff y’know, it was very distracting), and I walked up the neon tracks to find the Junk Food vendor where we’d arranged to meet.  The first thing I saw was a Siberian tiger (not something you see everyday, right?) and by his side hanging onto a rope was the Tinder babe who was a dead ringer for the BBBC gal. She must like animals, I thought, good start.  It turned out later that the tiger was the idea of her friend James, in case I should jump on her bones right off, I mean the Tinder girl… not the tiger. I’ll have to have a word with him. Man, was I embarrassed when my date turned out to be THE Harriet of the Beeb. I mean why would she even have to use Tinder?  She must have blokes coming outta the floorboards to worship the ground she walks on.  But we chatted and got on well and she invited me to dinner but first she wanted me to play on the EXALTED gacha for a pair of PJs to match the ones she had already.

I’m game for anything – especially to do with shopping – so I did one Play and ladies and gentlemen… I won the Rare! Back to Harriet’s place where I changed in her bathroom, put the sleepy pup in the linen basket and so on to dinner. Wow, I have to say the dining plates served pizza like only Mama makes. So I had one of those, then I had a chocolate slice with crystallised orange and two coffees and after that I was anybodies, as they say!  We played on Harriet’s gaming machine which I noticed had a crapton of interesting animations not suitable for a first date.  My fingers were aching to press that section of the HUD but I did behave, kinda. And you know how rabbits bounce around, say no more, but there was even an animation for that – so lots of bouncing and gaming was done. Then we settled down for chat and cuddles which was getting molto romantico…  before the tiger decided that enough was enough even for bunnies, handed me back the pup which was STILL asleep, and the evening was over.

I really hope that when Harriet recovers from all the bouncing around, she will want another date… ladies and gentlemen we’ll have to wait and see!  Gabriel over and out 🙂

Green Fingers

with 8 comments

 

“Green fingers” is primarily an English phrase and it means if somebody has green fingers, then they’re very good at gardening and everything they touch flourishes. You can even say this in Hindi –  बाग़वानी में निपुणता – but it still means having this special ability to make the plants grow.

Primavera

Primavera ~ by the great Santana from their album Supernatural (1999)

“Lluvia de sol
Como Una Bendicion
La vida renace con su luz
La primavera ya llego
Todo es asi
Regreso a la raiz
Tiempo de inquieta juventud
En primavera ya

La tierra negra se vuelve verde
Y las montanas y el desierto
Un bello jardin”

“The Sun showers a Blessing
Life is reborn with its light
Spring is here
Everything is like this
Back to the roots
the time of unquiet youth
In Spring already

The black Earth becomes green
and the mountains and the desert,
A beautiful garden.”

Let’s Fall in Love

with 5 comments

*click on the picture for a larger version

“We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover…
Let’s fall in love
Why shouldn’t we fall in love?
Now is the time for it, while we are young
Let’s fall in love” ~ Cole Porter, sung by Ella Fitzgerald

Ha!  I’m getting uber romantic in my old age. This gorgeous arbour has lots of animations which would be perfect for wedding photography/celebrations.  It’s beautifully made and includes sparkles on the ground.  You could even modify the size down a bit and use it as a garden arbour when you want a good focal point or divider.

The girl’s gown has a number of elegant versions included in the pack and a comprehensive texture HUD so you’ll be able to change the top, skirt and additional ruffles separately to make a unique outfit.  Not just for weddings, I think, but the shorter version would make delightful summery apparel.

The boy’s wedding suit has a number of colour versions available, not just the patterned white shown here, so do check those out at the store/marketplace.  It’s an unusual, more casual ‘n cool jacket/shirt combo which has an open shirt so you see some of the chest before the jacket buttons up, perfect for short or long necklaces and hot summer nights 🙂  Those shoes have a great HUD on them, too, you can add colour to various sections.  I do like apparel that has options, it makes everything more usable.

Look out behind you, Harry!

with 8 comments

 

Look out, Harry, the Serpent of Slytherin’s creeping up on you! Good job you’ve got that wand handy 🙂

The Serpent of Slytherin was a female Basilisk that was placed by Salazar Slytherin as the only resident of the Chamber of Secrets at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The Basilisk could only be controlled by the Heir of Slytherin, Tom Riddle. That meant that despite her being a Snake, other Parselmouths (such as Harry Potter) had no control over her, though they still could understand her. Aragog (a rare acromantula) was accused of being the monster of the chamber by Tom Riddle which sent Hagrid to Azkaban; his name was later cleared and he was allowed back in Hogwarts.

Shoes are by A&D – Shoes -Stuttgart- Mesh v2 SLINK and they have a wide range of mesh body options – A&D are one of the best mesh body coverage merchants for men’s clothing

Harry’s Shape is mine (sorry!) and it’s for the avatar head with the Belleza Jake Mesh Body because quite honestly I find the avatar head way easier to adjust than mesh heads and after hours spent fiddling with those blighters I’ve given up the will to live.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

Dark Dining

leave a comment »

 

Because… even witches have to eat!

My first Halloween scene and I’m really excited about this new set from Silence – available at Salem which has just opened.  It’s beautifully made and matches up with so much décor to do with this time of year, it’d be a shame not to purchase it.  That’s if you can get into Salem at the moment, I’m relying on what I get from my Sponsors, it’s a popular Event and that’s no lie.

Here’s a close-up of the dining table.  The glass bottles with candles, the caramel apples and the goblets are already in a set themselves so you just rez – nice ‘n easy – especially if you’ve got a dinner to decorate for at very short notice.

And the Spider Bowl. Not too scary, is it?

 

Also, I’m featuring some more Blueprint Event items.  ASW has a wonderful set of curtains, draped table and letters blowing about.  There’s a distant storm on its way and the nets are already being swept up by the wind.  {E}lusive’s very posh pumpkins are resting by the gold screen and NACH’s décor sign tells us who will be attending the meal.  Outside, Little Branch’s Scots Pine forest is bunching together in preparation!  The grey tabby is hiding under the table which is a very good place because she might get some of the pumpkin inspired dining scraps!
