My Tequila Time

with 4 comments

Indio means (I think) a member of any of the indigenous peoples of America or eastern Asia in areas formerly subject to Spain or Portugal and it’s mainly used to describe someone of mostly mesoamerican (Mexican or South American) descent. This new lounge set is the result of a happy collaboration by Fancy Decor and Commoner (I suggest more of this behaviour) and it looks Mexican to me, kinda Aztec.

Now I’ve never visited Mexico (more’s the pity) and I’ve never even tried Tequila so now I’m intrigued. I looked it up on Google and Tequila is distilled from Blue Agave which apparently tastes like honey. You can also use Agave as a sweetener if you grow it yourself and even if you don’t like honey, you’ll like this – ah, the marketing! My favourite advert at the moment is about this cat who is switching a desk lamp on and off with his paw. The accompanying chat goes like this… day, night, day, night, what is this sorcery? A machine that can turn day into night? Madness! And then off he goes to eat his cat food like a sensible chap. A lot of marketing is exactly like this and it takes a wise person to call Madness on it!

Shades of Lilac

with 6 comments

 

My object today was to create a peaceful room based on the colour white, so most of the products here are actually white. However, after I’d fiddled around with various Windlight settings I came up with this beautiful lilac wash which is rather pleasing and calm and created the atmosphere I was after.

The scene is set on the ground floor of Galland Homes “Cape Hatteras” and the light on the floor is reflected from the mass of windows at the front.  I think this is one of my favourite virtual homes of all time because not only do you get airy upper balconies and a comfortable porch back and front on the ground floor, but the amount of windows overall is nigh on perfect for calm and light within the house. The flooring is equally pleasing with a good mix of tiling and wooden floorboards. Cape Hatteras back in RL is the name of a thin, broken  strand of islands off the coast of North Carolina which have a humid, subtropical climate and can be rather turbulent and subject to storm damage. No doubt Designer Rob Galland got his inspiration from the sort of colonial homes that would manage well in that weather.

 

*~*

I’m also featuring a posh new glass console set by Fancy Decor which includes pictures and you’ll find at Collabor88, a stunning fireplace and mirror set in three colour options by unKindness at April FaMESHed and a beautiful daybed set with matching chamomile accessories by Granola. and that’s also at FaMESHed.

*~*

There’s an interesting tale about the origin of lilacs and it’s from Greek mythology.  It revolves around the God Pan, the lord of forests and fields, and at one time he was madly in love with a nymph named Syringa. Pan could be rather an overwhelming God and one day he chased after Syringa through the forest quite frightening her.  To disguise herself, she turned into a lilac shrub. To Pan’s surprise, he could not find Syringa on that occasion, but he did find the shrub. Because a lilac shrub consists of hollow reeds, he cut the reeds and created the first pan pipe. The scientific name for lilac is Syringa vulgaris, and the name is derived from the Greek word “syrinks” which means pipe.

Lilac meanings vary throughout different cultures and time periods.

  • The Celts regarded the lilac as “magical” due to its incredibly intoxicating fragrance.
  • During the Victorian Age, the giving of a lilac was meant to be a reminder of an old love. In fact, widows were often seen wearing lilacs during this period.
  • In Russia, holding a sprig of lilac over the newborn would bring wisdom.
  • In the United States, the lilac is the official state flower of New Hampshire and represents the ‘hardy’ nature of its people.

Fondue for you!

with 4 comments

*click on the picture for a larger version

During the 18th century the origin of fondue began in Switzerland as a way to use aged cheeses and breads to feed families who had limited access to fresh foods during the winter time. Producers of cheese and bread saw their busy season was during the warm months and that the food had to be saved by villagers to be used through the cold winter months. As the cheese would age and the breads became stale it became more difficult to eat. The local villagers found that if they heated the cheese with wines, garlic, and herbs they could dip their stale bread which would soften when dipped into the flavourful cheese mixture. This way of cooking together over one pot and eating by a warm cosy fire became a Swiss winter tradition known as fondue. The word fondue comes from the French word, ‘fondre’, which means ‘to melt’ and has since then been used to reference many other types of fondue for meats, chicken, seafood, and even chocolate.

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.

Booklover’s Dawn

leave a comment »

This cozy scene is about half as stuffed with books as my real life study is, I’m ashamed to say! I’m celebrating the early light of dawn here, which is much softer than the cold light of day and also a whole lot quieter.  I love this time of day when I can just sit and relax before everyone turns up to partake in breakfast.

The scene takes place in the bookshelves alcove of Cheeky Pea’s latest cottage, the Sherborne. I really like the open plan design downstairs because when you have a small place it can be a bit claustrophobic to put in sundry walls and doors, but in this cottage you could use room dividers and still retain the feeling of space, especially with the generous picture windows and ceiling height. I’m including a Slideshow for the cottage, inside and out.

An Island Resort

with 8 comments

 

A couple has arrived at a secluded Island Resort, maybe on their honeymoon, and while they’re in the bathroom, we can have a look at their bedroom. It’s quite early in the morning and because it’s so hot, they’ve left the door out onto the balcony wide open. Crisp cotton sheets, perfect customer service and luxurious décor are just two of the reasons why this resort got a five star rating!

If only! Still, at least in SL® we can dream. The room is an upper floor bedroom that leads out onto a gorgeous balcony, and it’s not the only one in the latest prefab by Galland Homes, this is the Cape Hatteras. I’ll do another post very soon to show you the rooms and the outside but take it from me, you could do worse for your summer vacation home.

Most of the decor is from unKindness. It’s the Island Resort gacha and you can try your luck on this at the June edition of Collabor88. Lots of nice animations in this bed, including a great couples sleep Menu, for the ultimate in laziness.

I also loved these new lanterns from Granola., you’ll find them over at UBER, which has recently started its new round but you can get in now without too much trouble. They come in various colours including this light blue which matched the bedspread perfectly.

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

King of the Castle

Beautiful spring products from various Events around the Grid!

I wanted to show the sheer quality of these products in some close-up shots.  That mirror and candelabra by Fancy Decor, for instance.  Have you noticed the tiny tassels that adorn the metal parts, such attention to detail.  I also liked that there were a lot of versions of these in the pack. The mirror is antique silver – a nice vintage piece.  I’m experimenting with windlights to see how real I can get the metals to look. Not difficult with these Fancy Decor pieces.

*~*~*

The collared dove is so beautifully observed, look at the variety of feathers and the scales on his feet. Dahlia’s set is equally stunning, the way the pages spread open, the satin book marker with medallion and the flower petals floating down from the vase of poppies.
