Bring the Outdoors in

Today’s scene features (amongst others) the “Summer Living Set” by JooLee Tee. It’s a very cute and colourful summer set for your lounge which is not too expensive to achieve.  All furniture is PG but if you are so inclined you can always put down an adult animated mat/blanket on the sofa and make it invisible.

If I have a favourite piece of furniture that is packed with excellent animations (I do have a particular Chez Moi sofa that I’m used to working now and it makes such a great role-play piece) and it is modify, what I do is to make it transparent via the Edit screen and place it in roughly the same spot as the new piece of furniture I want to use for décor. Maybe a little bit higher than the cushions, say, for a sofa. That way you tend to click on it first. The result is that you have a change of décor and also all your favourite animations handy.

I’ve done that for children’s furniture, too, so that if you have a Zooby baby but the furniture is not using the Zooby animations, it still works out nicely. Of course you do need the extra prims but it’s a way around the dilemma.

If you’re really clever, and you can find the actual prim that the animations are placed in, you can strip that off the piece of furniture and it’s less primmage used as a consequence.  But that depends on a lot of factors such as avatar shapes and distances and it may upset the whole thing of course! I’ve done that before and ruined the piece because the animations weren’t strictly Copy so beware.

A quiet corner of the garden

with 5 comments

 

“In a quiet corner of the garden one may rest,
Entertained by birdsong and the slow churn of water in the fountain.
An opportune breeze flutters the branches of the trees and the flowers brush softly against the gazebo window,
A small, white bird dips a graceful beak into water, while in the shadows a hedgehog steals juicy pear slices.
Truly a summer’s feast for ear and eye, where one can take a sip of wine and avoid the midday sun.”

Natural Habitat

It’s all about neutral tones today, soft greys and creams, toning wood, black iron. The colour comes from emerald green plants, tasty food and a glowing fire. I’m featuring the new lounge set from Cheeky Pea which is so cosy and has a FatPack texture changer in lighter tones suitable for spring into summer decorating. It’s well worth looking at. The sofa animations are nice as well, unisex and should do for most gender couples with a bit of adjustment. I adore the petal ceiling lamp and the succulent circles living wall art which make the “Vide” set that little bit different.

The scene is set in my favourite house of the year so far, KraftWork’s “West of the Rain” home. It’s very adaptable and all on one floor but you don’t feel hemmed in by it at all. This is achieved at least partially by the entrance hall which has a high ceiling with a roof skylight spilling light into the space. And then there’s a roomy porch for outdoor living areas. Gorgeous and only 96 Land Impact for all that detail.

Be careful where you camp!

with 9 comments

 

Be careful where you camp, especially when there’s a bunch of goat kids about! Just like us, these cute kids are partial to a bit of glamping 🙂

Goats were amongst the first animals to be tamed by man and they were being herded some nine thousand years ago. They can be taught their name and to come when called. Their life span is around that of a dog. Mother goats carry their kids for five months and they can have two to three kids per year. Kids are standing and taking their first steps within minutes of being born! Each kid has a unique call and scent, that’s how the mother recognises it from birth and not by sight. Goats are very good at climbing and have been known to climb to the tops of trees, or even dams. In their natural habitat, goats roam mountain tops and reach up as high as possible to pick out choice bits of forage around them. Like most of us, goats get depressed if they don’t have companions so are best kept in a herd. Contrary to popular opinion they are rather picky eaters. They have very sensitive lips, which they use to “mouth” things in search of clean and tasty food.

Save all your kisses for me

with 4 comments

Click on the picture for a larger version!

The title today comes from a  song by Brotherhood of Man and it was a Eurovision Song Contest winner years ago.  It talks about don’t cry when I leave, save all your kisses for me, and it turns out to be a 3 year old the song is referring to.  So cute!  I think that’s one of the best sorts of love, that between a parent and their child.  Valentine’s day can be good or bad, depending on what happens to you, or rather doesn’t.  Here’s some beautiful virtual goods you can use on that day for your loved one or your intended recipient.

Queen Corgi’s Kitchen

with 10 comments

 

We all know that Queen Elizabeth II keeps corgi dogs, she’s very fond of them.  When I see a corgi, I always make that connection and I picture a troupe of corgi dogs trotting along merrily by the side of the Queen as she goes for a walk.  So, here’s my fantasy about one of the Queen’s royal dogs who’s lucky enough to have her own kitchen!

Fireside Memories

with 2 comments

 

Winter has set in where we live, and I find there’s nothing better for cheering up a grey, freezing cold day than to lounge in front of a blazing fire.  It also has the best heat output anywhere, including oil fired radiators and ambient heaters!  You can sit and watch a fire for its living elements and never be bored, in fact it will help clear out upsetting emotional states and give you comfort.

There’s a lot of Scandi style furniture and décor around at the moment and it’s a style that’s perfect for winter decorating.  It can be successfully combined with other styles, as I’ve done in the scene above.  It’s a beautiful, minimalist style that was among the first design styles to promote simplistic ways of living when it emerged during the 1930s within the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.  It became known as “Scandinavian design” which originated from a design show that toured the USA and Canada between 1954 and 1957.  The style emphasizes clean lines and simple designs that are inspired by nature and the Nordic climate. This results in spaces that are suffused with light, airiness, serenity and a feeling of oneness with nature.  Scandi style promotes beautiful designs and quality, with sustainable products that are affordable and easily accessible to people in all strata’s of society, and that makes it an egalitarian choice for today.
