If you’re fed up with the hot summer conditions, here’s a skybox which has winter on its mind!  It’s a Group Gift from FOURTH WALL and called the Winter’s Abode Skybox.  I’ve made a scene near one of the windows with the help of Percy the Puffin who much prefers a steamy shower to the snowy conditions outside.

Winter’s Abode is a small studio skybox apartment that mixes together a clean, modern style with the traditional warm woods of a cabin. It’s only L$99 to join the VIP Group, so basically you get a skybox for a daft amount and even less if you’re a group member already.

There is a main room with a half divider in wood, the ceiling here has a pleasant, cosy rafter area and a sloped wooden section down to four wall height windows at the front. When you don’t have the outdoor scene up, you get a lot of light through these. The main room leads off into another more private area reached by a single step and this has no windows and is lit by copious industrial style ceiling lights above.  Here’s your slide screen featuring some photos using the lounger and puffin to get a sense of scale.  Well that was Percy’s excuse to model anyway!

Solace in Spain

with 9 comments

 

The scene today is photographed in part of the colonnade of  La Casa Blanca Spanish style home.  It’s by also Known as and is currently at the Hacienda round of The Liaison Collaborative.  If you hurry, there’s still a couple of days left.  There’s also another major piece from that round by my new sponsor, Silence, and that’s the Hacienda Swing which has a massive and satisfying texture changer!

The Hacienda Swing has twelve beautiful patterns you’ll absolutely love, and a selection of toning plains in Olive brown, Dark green, Red, White, Orange and Blue green. I used the SW4 pattern with the Blue green plain.  This was enough even to please me 🙂  Plus..  it’s very easy to alter the length of the poles and chains for whatever height porch you have, which makes this a versatile piece of furniture.

The fabulous La Casa Blanca consists of two floors and a flat roof area with tiled wall surround which could be decorated. There are two sets of outside steps from ground to upper floor and from upper floor to roof. There’s a white colonnade with ceiling beams at the front of house and a white balcony on upper floor.

The ground floor rooms number four altogether, and they are a mirror set accessible by big doors off the colonnade, their ceilings have wooden beams décor. The upper floor has a single bedroom with front and side window which you enter from the outside stairs and this room leads into a large double open plan bedroom with windows front and back. The balcony will take you up to the roof via the second set of outside stairs. The inner rooms are tiled with black and white flooring, and the roof and colonnade have caramel tiling. The house sits on a tiled block with three steps all round and plenty of extra height on the base to enable you to sink it into the ground, be it grass, concrete or sand.  I’ve taken copious photos and made a slideshow…

Not just at Sea

leave a comment »

 

Albatrosses are large seabirds that range widely in the Southern Ocean and the North Pacific. They are reputed to spend much of their lives at sea, only seeking land for breeding purposes. But is that always true? The title of this scene is called, “Not just at Sea”. Make up your own mind!

In Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s famous poem, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” (1798), an albatross starts to follow a ship, which would generally be considered good fortune. However, the mariner shoots the bird with a crossbow and brings a terrible curse on the ship and its crew. The albatross is hung around the mariner’s neck by the crew to symbolise his guilt. Thus, this innocent seabird can be both an omen of good or bad luck, as well as a metaphor for a burden to be carried as a penance.

The gorgeous fountain is from also Known as, and it’s currently at Enchantment. I do urge you to visit this themed Event, it’s full of wonderment and products to do with the fairy tale, “The Frog Prince”.

Making an Entrance

with 8 comments

 

My initial inspiration for this picture was Fancy Decor’s “Nannerl Set” – an entrance hall set that is both elegant and practical. I’m very much in favour of such sets as they are the first thing a visitor to your home will see, and as a result they are quite important to get right and strike a good atmosphere with.

There’s quite a lot of Spanish furniture and décor around right now, not least because The Liaison Collaborative has a Hacienda round!  I’ve matched up some of these pieces from various designers – I really love the splashes of joyful, bright colour which are a Spanish trademark.  If you ever visit Barcelona and see the work of architect Antoni Gaudí i Cornet you’ll see what I mean on a grand scale.

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

Sponsors:- Newchurch, Fancy Decor, unKindness, KraftWork, Raindale

Newchurch (from Builder’s Box – May 2018 edition)
:: N :: Ontario Lake House w/base – LI 51 (without base it’s just LI 22)

This house was designed to be situated on a shoreline, with the deck just above the water. While Designer Victor has included a terrain base, you will get best results by removing it and shaping the land around the house to suit.  The floor, while mesh, is fine for rezzing packages on – makes decorating so much easier!

Breakfast in Bed

with 11 comments

(Taken on Black Dragon Viewer)

One of the best meals of the day, especially if you share it!  So many beautiful products about at the moment, here’s some of my favourites.  The gorgeously light dining set called the Jean Collection is by Fancy Decor and you’ll find that at Summerfest 2018, along with lots of décor for your seasonal decorating.

Little Branch’s new tree here is the Orange Blossom (mainstore) and although I’ve reduced the default size considerably to fit in with the scene, it’s pretty good Land Impact at the larger size.  Summer blossom adds to any garden scene and this tree is beautifully represented, the branches being animated as though in a gentle breeze.  The Orange Blossom is a beautifully fragrant flowered tree, and its blossom is used in perfume making.  It’s traditionally associated with good fortune and is popular for bridal bouquets. It’s also the state flower of Florida!

The background piece is from one of my favourite sets by TLC Home Collection, called, “Forever my Dove”. You also get the Eurasian Doves, too. This background has arched windows and a fountain with flowing water included. It could easily be slotted into a garden scene or alongside a plain outside wall of a house.  Here it is on its own:-

 

Many thanks go to Mooncita (Moonsoul Resident) for helping me get used to the Black Dragon Viewer.  A recent talk given at Bloggers & Vloggers Network by Mooncita, got me interested in the viewer, specifically for photography.  The quality of the photographs you take with Black Dragon can be that much more precise and pixel rich than with Firestorm because it goes above the Ultra setting. There’s lots of things you can do with the Windlight settings, too, using the Black Dragon Machina Button.  And best of all, it seems to be able to stop the fisheye effect before it starts.  Amazing!

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.

Indoor Outdoor Living

with 8 comments

 

Mostly outdoors! I’m loving this new house by also Known as, it could serve as a commercial store if you wanted to use it like that, it’s that adaptable. I’m also longing for summer – as you can see by the windlight I’ve chosen – more snow is forecast for our part of the country… thumbs down 🙂

Today, I’m showcasing a number of products that will be coming up soon at the Illuminate Event on March 18th. Illuminate is the first monthly Home & Garden specific Event, there’s no fashion in it. It’s run by ULTRA Events and LTD, and there’s some really lovely products already. With the Easter festival happening soon, some of the designers are taking inspiration from that.

*~*~*

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

Illuminate Event – from March 18th Noon SLT

5. Shutter Field/Decor Junction – a well established collaboration. This is the Kincaid Set, with MM and MF versions plus the Floating Dock which I shoved rather unceremoniously into the stone surround! SF/DJ often produce beautifully animated MM versions of their products, not so many designers cover this market and it’s a pleasure not to have to alter the animations.
DJ / SF Floating Dock – LI 9 – Copy/Modify – contains male and female sits, dives (into the water), and a nice cuddles Menu.
DJ / SF Kincaid Set – LI 8 – with male and female sits, cuddles and activities Menus.

The full footprint is 25*50 meters including the outdoor paving, which can be unlinked should you prefer to do that. Two versions of the house are included – one with an animated bathtub for use as a home – Land Impact will be 112 and one without if you’re using the BarCode Villa as a commercial property – Land Impact will 120. The Barcode has Kool doors, which can be configured by the owner.

Little Branch, currently at FaMESHed
