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!

Modern Love

with 16 comments

Before I start this post, I want to leave a message for sponsors and my blogging friends.  I’ll be offline for the next fortnight and back on Monday, February 26th. I’m having a long awaited upper spinal operation which should hopefully reduce pain levels and give me extra movement as well as clearer vision.  It’s not a huge operation but it will require recovery time.   It makes use of modern surgery skills, too, for which I am very grateful!  Sorry, my friends, I won’t be able to ‘like’ posts or make my quirky comments for that couple of weeks.  ❤

*~*~*

There are quite a few superb items out at the moment which have that modern furniture vibe.  I’ve combined three of my current favourites in the scene today.

The building is by unKindness, it’s called Modern Serenity and it’s in the latest Builder’s Box subscription.  This really is a beauty of a house and I’ve included a couple of extra close-ups so you can see how the light will fall inside the building.

There are two main furniture sets here.  The beautiful dressing table/vanity set is by Granola. and you get that in gacha form including texture option HUDs.  Simply lots of class and lots of pastel colour tones – I was using white, peach and pale gold metals.

The other furniture set is a collaboration by Fancy Decor and Commoner called The Modine Collection.  This is gorgeous, there’s a lot of pieces including cushion texture options and you’ll be able to mix n match to your heart’s content!

*~*~*

Lots of long, narrow windows give a feeling of calm and privacy and yet it’s relatively light for all those dark grey concrete tones.  The front door has a good entrance porch and it leads to the large room for open living.
