“Are we going for a Picnikerty, Mum?
Down where the gate is rickerty
And funny honey bees drink their
butter cuppa teas.
Look, I’m on my knees, please
How about a Picnikerty, Mum, quickerty!”

There’s a lot of food about Second Life® recently so I thought we should go on a picnic!

My Home & Garden Sponsors:

Raindale – Designer, Keira, has made the beautiful “Elston set”, a warm wooden pergola and bench. The Pergola is strewn with lights and has a Land Impact of 12. The Bench is a further 3 Land Impact and seats up to 2 avatars. There’s 15 poses in the bench and both pieces have Permissions of Copy/Modify. Pick your copy up at the current edition of 2nd Level. This is getting to be a great little Event, which is well worth a visit for all sorts of items from apparel to furniture to poses.

Chez Moi Furnitures – at MadPea International Food Fair until March 4th. Designer, Nanda, has made the fabulous “Farmers Market Cart Wood” – LI 13 – Copy/Modify – 6 poses including leaning nonchalantly against the cart holding a coffee! I love this piece as I can do a good nonchalant mood in general *laughs* It also has versions in White and Colour and you can do texture change on the awning.

Duvet Day – at MadPea International Food Fair until March 4th. Designer, Benoit, has made the yummy cakes here on the picnic blanket – “Strawberry Drip Cake” featuring chocolate, cherries and strawberries which not only looks yummy but is only 2 Land Impact with Permissions of Copy/Modify.   “Ice Cream Cone Drip Cake” features a variety of these culinary beauties. They are great fun and only 2 LI each with Permissions of Transfer/Modify.  “Coffee and a Muffin” tea tray. A true to life tray with coffee stains!  Click on the tray to receive an animated coffee cup. Land Impact is 3 with Permissions of Copy/Modify.

[zerkalo] using items from the “Picnic at the Neva River” gacha.
Rare – Blanket, Commons – basket with strawberries, basket with plums, tray with food, umbrella, wine and delicacies. Check out the mainstore to try your luck on this gorgeous gacha.

TLC Home Collection – “Canadian Geese Family” – Standing goose, standing gosling and swimming gosling who is scripted to keep up with mum when swimming. Here I’ve sunk the poor thing into a pillow and she was not pleased until I offered her some cake! Cake solves a lot of things lol. Available from the mainstore which is a lovely place to look around with all the animals and birds.

*~*~*

Other Home & Garden items:

Two Moon Gardens – “Hidden Heather” garden scene with river – greatly modified!

Jian – Sheltie Companion from the “Southern Shelties” gacha – he was my birthday present from Arrchie. A hilarious dog who puffs, stands, puffs, sits, puffs and digs up your garden!  Great clouds of dust will emit from his paws when he’s digging and I had to wait for him to stop while trying to take the photo.

And I’m holding a Flower Pug from the Jian gacha “Love Pugs”.  Try the mainstore or Marketplace for resellers.

Santa’s Afternoon Hideaway

with 4 comments

The Elves noticed that Santa disappeared some afternoons. He couldn’t be contacted at all.  We thought he was up to something but no matter how we tried, we couldn’t find him until today – and that was only by chance!

So we were gathered around  the fire, enjoying the warmth and just being out on a cold, clear day. Looking around for some more logs to keep the fire going, I noticed a strange reddish glint in the house. Now nobody had lived there for years and although things never get shabby in Second Life® unless they are textured that way in the first place, the glimmering looked out of place.

I clicked open the door and… well!  What a lot of gossip to tell you 🙂 The room was decked out luxuriously and the glinting that had so intrigued us happened to be Rudolph’s red nose. He was annoyed at being disturbed. He’d been waiting for Santa, having made new cakes and got the tea on (Earl Grey, naturally).

We noticed Santa’s hat resting on the comfortable looking leather chair, more evidence the reindeer was telling the truth. There was a blazing fire, and it all looked so comfortable and cosy in the afternoon sun. We decided to beat a hasty retreat and go ride on the train at Kushi Textures! It’s Santa’s North Pole extravaganza for families and beautifully done 🙂

We’re not giving away the location of Santa’s Afternoon Hideaway because… well, the old guy needs his afternoons off in peace. He’s got lots to do in the coming days!
