Go Wild in the Country

with 5 comments

Having fun in the desert and being very lazy!

My pa was a geologist and so anything to do with Earth Science has always fascinated me.  The Camp Steelhead Hot Springs came with this explanation of the landscape and how it formed over millennia.  So interesting I included it here. Hope you enjoy it, too!

*~*~*

“The Great Basin Desert stretches from Utah into Idaho, Nevada, California, Colorado and Arizona. It is the largest desert in the U.S. covering an expanse of about 190,000 square miles. In Arizona this desert connects with the Sonoran and Mojave deserts, the only two other deserts in the U.S.

The region was once host to a large inland sea that has filled and dried up twice during our geological history leaving behind large valleys running north and south as small lakes vanished leaving behind salt crust or hard-pan. The flat area of clay, silt, or sand encrusted with salt that forms is known as a Playa. The runoff from the region is what created the Grand Canyon.

After the rock hardened and began to erode, compressed veins of salt threaded between hard sandstone, leaving behind monumental sandstone fins. These fins now exposed formed magnificent formations blended with colours formed during vastly varying times of our earth’s history. Red Sandstone, known as Navajo Sandstone was formed during an oxygen environment and therefore is red from iron oxide while yellow sandstone was formed prior when the planet was saturated with carbon dioxide.

Now exposed to the elements of wind, water and dirt, this soft rock took on amazing and unique shapes, colours and textures. Host to many national parks and once the home of the Anastasia Indians, you can reference:

• Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
• Capitol Reef National Park
• Arches National Monument
• Canyonlands National Monument
• Glen Canyon National Recreational Area”

And now you know where I got the hamburgers from! Zesty’s Dairy Bar is a full-size building, highly detailed and contextually accurate, styled after a dairy bar/snack shack. It is non-functional as a building, serving only as décor or a backdrop. At only LI 5, it’s an easy way to add zest to your landscape.

3. Camp Steelhead, currently at The Boardwalk Event
The Camp Steelhead Hot Springs is a composite of Designer Chelsea’s experiences having lived the region for much of her life. She combined elements indicative of the American West while capturing the feel as much as the sights.
The pack also includes textures so you can add to your ground piece, make an alternative texture Ice Chest and use a screen background!
Camp Steelhead Hot Springs Wall Rock – LI 6
Camp Steelhead Hot Springs Spire Rock – LI 6

Also includes the Steelhead Ice Chest – LI 5
Steelhead Kiosk – Hot Springs – LI 1

What you can’t see in my picture because it’s close-up, is that the rock on the right side is a water spout, it makes a spectacular scene! I’m interested in this set for landscaping but it also has an extensive Adult animation menu which you need to check out at the Event as I have a strictly PG blog here.  Otherwise, there’s Bathe, Sit and Cuddles Menus with Adjust & Swap facilities. There’s also a Utilities Menu that controls lights, glow and environmental factors. Well worth the price!

Have we eaten too much turkey?  Feeling over full?  Why not take a leaf out of these little chaps’ book and do some exercise.  How about a sleigh ride or a walk or even a fabulous snowy hot tub session, the choice is yours.

Countdown to Christmas

Things that make you go OhEmGee, look at the state of your office! Thus it is with pre-holiday organisation.  Even the pup is amused or perhaps he’s considering the tray of figs.  I know the kitten is considering the cardinals.

Dine out in Comfort

with 9 comments

 

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.

Conservatory

with 12 comments

 

A conservatory that’s anything but conservative!  One of the best I’ve seen, it’s made by designer, Benoit, of Duvet Day, who specialises in gacha sets.  Imagine how you’d feel if on the first Play you got that building 🙂   Although there’s lots of gorgeous items here, one of my all time favourites is the Mesh India Samyukta Lamp Cabinet which reminds me of my childhood. We used to have one just like that which was jealously guarded by mum who put all her spices into the drawers.  If us boys were caught around playing with the drawers which was kinda irresistible, we’d get a cuff around the ears!

Outside you can just see the new Little Branch tree. This I’ll be showcasing later on but I have to say that this architectural Black Olive tree is a classic and I’m sure I’ll be using a lot.

Earlier on this week I attended a brilliant blogger’s H&G scene build by Wendz Tempest. It was kindly given on the KraftWork building platform.  Wendz showed us how she buildings a scene freestyle.  No walls or house at first – blimey!  Lots of tips and tricks were shared. Well I liked the idea of it, so I partially built the scene above freestyle, selected all the pieces and shoved them into the conservatory.  I still fiddled about but it was fun – why don’t you try it out.

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