The Lord of Winter

with 2 comments

*~*~*

While it may be mostly Pagans who celebrate the Yule holiday, nearly all cultures and faiths have held some sort of Winter Solstice celebration or festival. Because of the theme of endless birth, life, death, and rebirth, the time of the Solstice is often associated with deities and other legendary figures.

From Norse Legend, Odin bestowed gifts at Yuletide upon his people, riding a magical flying horse across the sky. This legend may have combined with that of St. Nicholas to create the modern Santa Claus. Anyway, this is my interpretation!

*~*~*

Here’s all the Home & Garden products I used today in detail:-

Raindale
“Charfell Cabin” Updated version for The White Nights Event at The Avenue, runs through to January 6th – 35% off
Keira added a snow roof at 5 LI and string lights at 2 LI and there’s new HUD options – 5 wall colours, 5 roof colours and a winter present which will give snowy textures for some of the wooden parts and base platform. The winter version has a platform with it – 55 LI, the summer version will be 50 LI. The footprint of the cabin will be 10 by 15 metres at the default size but with Permissions of Copy/Modify this can be sized up and down.
The platform is optional and can be removed or used by itself, the Land Impact will be 8 at it’s default size of 23 by 23 metres. I think you’ll find this is a very useful piece of landscaping in it’s own right. You have a 5 option texture change HUD with the platform, too.

Stairway to Heaven

with 10 comments

 

This stunning Baroque Terrace from 22769 ~ [Bauwerk] has been in my Inventory for a while because I couldn’t do anything near to the beautiful posts my fellow bloggers have been doing, but this morning I got some inspiration. Having rezzed the terrace on my building platform yet again, I looked at the large amount of steps in the build that amounted to a veritable white stairway rising up to the sky… Stairway to Heaven!  Back down to the garden, I cleared everything off the lake, rezzed a white backdrop and it all started to make sense.

The terrace contains the statues and an oval platform at the top surrounded by a balustrade and another set of steps down the other side.  Some topiary bushes in pots are included at the sides.  I placed the Baroque Gazebo on the top platform and a little rock waterfall by Felix landscaping within it.  As you can see from the welcoming angel, it’s quite a large piece and would be suitable for grand gardens, parks and any public space where you wanted to make an architectural statement.

Here’s what I used:-

These are available at the I ❤ Roleplay Event, which runs until the end of the month.  All beautiful original Mesh with Permissions of Copy/Modify.

22769 – Baroque Gazebo – LI 47
22769 – Topiary Cone – LI 3

*~*~*

Here’s the angel (and being this angelic can’t last) in close-up.  The angelic face and body appliers are by 7 Deadly s{K}ins and you’ll find them in the guy’s section, ground floor.

 

Here’s what I was wearing: –

Harry’s Day Off with 22769~ [Bauwerk]

with 2 comments

22769 - [Bauwerk] - Wizard's Garden 1

 

Every wizard needs a day off and Harry is no exception. So when Ginny takes the kids off to London to catch the train to Hogwarts, he’s allowed to lounge around the place and do the gardening. Note that he’s not getting too near to some of those weird plants even if they do need a watering!

A fantastical garden made by 22769~ [Bauwerk], it’s a gacha for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, called – “The Wizard’s Garden”.  The Rare is the garden itself complete with ground work, raised bed and suitably atmospheric background masonry. The Wizard Garden – LI 20 – 12,8 x 13,8 x 5,2 meters

22769 - [Bauwerk] - Wizard's Garden Rare

 

The Commons are all sorts of strange and wondrous plants! Malum Fungi Plerumque, Malum Fungi Regium, Leve Ovum Tumulum, Dolum Faucibus. Flores Calyx Lacus, Flores Calyx Ignis,
Faciem Amplexus Noctis, Faciem Amplexus Lava, Cibus Flos Solis. Cibus Flos Gramina, Carnivore Ostium and Fumifungus. In total there are 13 items to collect, an appropriate number there and if you look up the latin, you’ll see the humour. When the shadows fall, they do begin to look a wee bit eerie. I think Harry went indoors to get his tea then.

22769 - [Bauwerk] - Wizard's Garden Plants

 

Later on, it’s a beautiful moonlit night and Harry retires to the library. Now we know what the plants are used for! Having cooked up some suitable pipe filler, Harry relaxes with one of the pipes from “Madame Nu’s Opium Supplies”.  Gacha #2 contains a plethora of these beautifully fashioned pipes so you’re sure to find one that suits. Harry prefers the Chain Opium Pipe – Gold, one of the Rares, but then he would, wouldn’t he? There’s 3 Rares and 9 Commons which all attach to the avatar mouth as unrigged mesh so you can move them around.  Harry’s strewn them about on the table so he can find the appropriate pipe and you’ll see they have gold, iron and silver varieties.

22769 - [Bauwerk] - Wizard Room - Harry's Evening Off

 

It’s not just a library full of books but gacha #3 contains wizardry accoutrements and furniture! Brilliant – it’s called “The Wizard Room”. The Rare is The Wizard Chair – LI 3 – 7 single sit animations. Then we’ve got all these Commons – The Favorite Wand. Wizards Magic Book, Pots, Wizard Ingredients, Shelf with Pots, Hourglass, Mirrorball, Glass Carafe, Wizards Big Bookshelf, Wizards Table, Wizards Small Bookshelf, Wizards Broomstick, Wizards Wand Rack, Table Cauldron and Table Candle.

Here’s some of the items close up, Harry’s favourite wand is resting in its box and a couple of the pipes are ready for more imbibing. The cauldron’s aglow just in case he thinks of better recipes!

22769 - [Bauwerk] - Wizard Room - Desk Library

 

Even the broom has a night off and lazes up against the windows. The house is also made by 22769 ~ [Bauwerk] and it’s called the “Saint Vivien de Medoc” available from the mainstore.

22769 - [Bauwerk] - Wizard Room - Broom

 

The Wizard’s Book of Spells lays open on the desk to convince Ginny that Harry has been doing some work, at least! The Hour Glass has run out and it’s almost time for Harry to put the kettle on and make Ginny some well deserved supper for when she gets back. Better jump to it, my friend 🙂

22769 - [Bauwerk] - Wizard Room - Spellz

 

All three gachas are only 50L per pull.

Harry was wearing a wizardly outfit from Bare Rose, a fantastic place for roleplay costumes and much, much more.

Taxi to Fantasy Gacha Carnival which is open now and runs until September 7th.

Check out 22769 ~ [Bauwerk] mainstore for more fabulous items.

 

Cheers, m’dears 🙂
