Garden Meditation

leave a comment »

 

It’s a post packed full of bargain goodness today, and it’s just in time for your Spring landscaping! The little chaps here are enjoying a morning meditation in the garden before anybody’s about. I enjoy this time of year best where everything is so lush and green, before the heat of summer fries it all. Although looking out the window today in real life, it’s blowing a right old gale!

Owlery

leave a comment »

 

The Owlery was a room on the top of Hogwarts Castle’s West Tower, where the school owls and the owls belonging to students lived during the school year. The Owlery was a circular stone room, rather cold and drafty, because none of the windows had glass in them. The lack of glass in the windows allowed the owls to come and go freely. The floor was entirely covered in straw, owl droppings and the regurgitated skeletons of mice and voles. Many owls nestled here on perches that rose right up to the top of the tower. During the winter months, the room was very cold, to the point that one had to be careful with ice on the higher landings.

Our Second Life® virtual Owlery is much more civilised and comes complete with stained glass windows. The owls get in through the round window and have a nice, warm set of rooms all to themselves 🙂

Here’s full details of the Home & Garden products and avatar accessories I used in the scene today:-

Sponsors:- Syndicate Sunday, Juna tattoos, Dragon Magick Wares
Others:- *HEXtraordinary*, MINIMAL, C L A Vv.
Events: – Syndicate Sunday, The Saturday Sale

*NB – all products have Permissions of Copy & Modify unless stated otherwise!

Syndicate Sunday – Feb 3rd – 10th – all items only L$69

1 . Juna
Although the offer is primarily for ladies, this great Symo tattoo goes very well on a slim, male body too! I used the Jake MESH body with the Omega applier option which worked perfectly so I’d say this was unisex. I would imagine that a larger male body with more defined musculature may distort the tats somewhat but it’s so cheap as this special offer – why not just try it out?
In the pack you’ll find dark, light and medium system layers as well as the Multiple HUD. This contains the applier for mesh Body in 3 tone (Dark 100%, Medium 75% and Light 50%) for:
• Altamura
• Belleza
• Eve
• Maitreya
• Omega
• Signature
There’s also a Juna: TMP Symo tattoo Woman option included.

 

2. Dragon Magick Wares
This is a daft price to pay for a lovely RP build – what’s there to think about?
Dragon Magick Wares Luna Cottage – LI 130 – Copy and Modify, you can enlarge this cottage only. It’s a beautiful building with Magick and RP aspects. There’s 4 rooms inside and they are light, airy and decorated with stained glass windows. Click doors open and close. The front door has an additional wrought iron decoration and door knocker. The footprint is 14 by 11 metres and the height is 0.45 metres. Here’s a picture to show the roof décor.

Canopy Bed in the Woods

with 5 comments

 

Chez Moi Furniture‘s latest mesh is a beautiful canopy bed and this is available now at Ultra event. Called the “Canopy Bed Nanai” it’s a lot of detail for only 20 Land Impact.  It’s really something you’d hang from a room ceiling because it has lots of hanging hooks and straps but why not a porch or gazebo, as I’ve done here.

There are both PG (plus 120 animations) and Adult (plus 202 animations) versions of this 100% original Mesh bed, and it’s very romantic and interactive. The poses include a decent sleep Menu which I always like in a bed because although you can do a lot in a bed, especially in Second Life®, sleep is still a rather nice and calming thing to do, even virtually. Or am I completely daft?!

*~*~*

Home & Garden items used:-

Canopy Bed Nanai (Adult) CHEZ MOI – LI 20 – Copy/Modify – Ultra Event until April 8th.

Dragon Magick Wares Weathered Gazebo – LI 8 (modified) – this is a lovely gazebo, you can switch the lamps on and off with touch, and also it’s very modifiable – the lamp on the tree branch actually belongs on the front of the gazebo and was easy to move.

TLC Home Collection – Fallow Deer Family – some of them have icy breath!

The Spoonful of Sugar Festival – Home & Garden 1

with 9 comments

final-poster-for-sos

 

I’m honoured to be a blogger for this great fund raiser event that will run from Friday, 12 am SLT, September 9 and stay open until Sunday, September 25. It’s the Spoonful of Sugar Festival –  5 sims with over 180 stores in fashion, home and garden, and breedables. It’s huge and the charities supported are Doctors without Borders and Medicins Sans Frontieres. Please have a look through the website for more info. There’s also a Flickr and a Facebook page.

This was going to be an introduction post but you know me, I can’t resist opening some of the 100% donation items in the Home & Garden offerings so here goes!

Who doesn’t like dragons? Hobbits you cry!  Well yes, but this dragon is sculpture only and he’s by Dragon Magick Wares. The “Happy Dragon” has a LI of 12 but you can resize him via the script. He’s Copy, otherwise. Look at that cheeky expression, just because I’ve rezzed him by the lake and he thinks he’s on guard.

sos-festival-happy-dragon-by-dragon-magick-wares

 

This is a wonderful gazebo by Dragon Magick Wares again, it’s called the “Weathered Gazebo” and it has a LI of 8 with Permissions of Copy/Modify. Very enchanting with the little hanging lights which have a good spread of light without burning your eyes.

The “Mary Rose Cottage” by Khaleesi’s Shinn-Anigans or K~S for short, is just gorgeous and such fun. I can imagine this on many a roleplay sim or even at the bottom of the garden! It’s small but perfectly formed at 16 by 13 metres and only 25 LI, can’t be bad. Copy/Modify with door access you can upgrade if you want.

Also by K~” is the “Skarthi Viking Hut” suitable for all Viking warriors to take a rest in once they’ve done all their pillaging. Inside, there’s a fireplace and smoke comes out the roof chimney. Click the logs to start a nice blazing fire (I bet they didn’t have that mod con back in the old days). Again, this des res is only 25 LI and Permissions are Copy/Modify.

*Elite Equestrian* are on the Breedables sim and they have three exclusive items out that are just for the SOS Festival.

Firstly there’s “Cherry’s Racing Barn”, a really beautifully rendered barn to keep horses in. The barn will be suitable for avatar horses and ABC ponies. You can’t go wrong with this super barn, it has 4 horse stalls, tack area and built in paddock. Photos show both inside and out. It is a mere 26 LI for all that detail, footprint is 25 by 14 metres with Permissions of Copy/Modify so you can retexture if you want but as rezzed, the textures are premier. You get a rezzer for easy placement and give it time to work as it will build and position your barn. The little box in front of the barn is the rezzer.

Then there’s the “Cherry Ranch House”. This is a long house with a 64 by 48 metre footprint but it is magnificent and you also get 4 horse stalls included. 80 LI original Mesh same as the barn, there are spacious living quarters with built in sunlight. It really does feel good to stand inside this ranch house as you’re bathed in sunlight from the windows whilst the wonderfully textured wood is very pleasing to the eye. I honestly could not believe that it was only 80 LI but there you are! There’s a large main room, office and bedroom and you just walk into the horse stall area through one of the doors. Perfecto 🙂

I got around two thirds of the house in this picture, a bit further to the right is the horse stall area.

Last but not least, *Elite Equestrian* have made us a miniature golden horse avatar and it is of extreme cuteness *smiles*. I spent all afternoon as a mini  horse traipsing around the barn and horse stall, neighing and posing. Much the same as real life then!! We get an instruction book but it’s not too difficult. You simply right click on the folder, choose Replace Current Outfit, and everything loads straight up including the gesture HUD and a complete AO with walk, trot, canter, gallop and crouch-park and crouch walk Spanish Walk. Here’s a few pictures of me posing and it’ll be a dollar to talk to me soon 🙂
