Posh Parakeets

with 9 comments

 

These little parakeets think they are Posh with a capital ‘P’  as they hang out at the Manor! Of course they reckon the owner has put in the handy fencing and water feature especially for them so they can take their morning bath and dry off afterwards 🙂

Featuring the “Manor Fence Set” by unKindness (my new Sponsor – yaaaay!!), currently at the August round of FaMESHed.  This lovely set has Materials enabled to great effect, the slightly rusty railings, shiny fleur-de-lis decoration and weathered stone pillars are a delight.

HEXtraordinary have created the parakeets from their gacha “Parakeet Pals”, and that’s currently at the Gacha Garden Event.  If you ask me, they look like budgerigars so if you’re in my part of the country, we call those spugs. Anyway, there’s lots of differently coloured spugs in the gacha plus a nice cage for them or else they have a posh twig stand to sit on.  Those are Rares and I didn’t get anything to speak of expect for lots and lots of spugs. However, as you can see they would much rather be outside! It is extreme cuteness the way they flap their wings during the animation cycle. In the picture above, the snowy one was flapping at the time having just taken a dip in the “Soothing Fountain” by .peaches. (Deco(c)rate) and it’s anything but Zen with all the tweeting, flapping and squawking when one of them has spent too long in the bathing bowls.

Here’s the scene repeated in a warmer Windlight setting.  That beautiful tree is by Little Branch and it’s a sweet chestnut, that was also in the Deco(c)rate subscription box which is well worth getting, even at the non-discounted price.

I think the owner of the Manor needs to mow the lawn soon, it’s a weekend gardening job 🙂

Sundown at the Beach

with 14 comments

*~*~*

Beach evenings – when you’re just trying to catch the last rays of the dipping sun and the horizon is turning coral. When the food is waiting to be eaten and you can smell the delicious aromas from where you’re resting but you have the lazy, satisfied feeling. When you can hear the camp fire cracking and the cicadas starting their evening chorus. Just… Fab.

 

I’m featuring some wonderful items from July Deco(c)rate which had a tropical theme. Chez Moi Furnitures gave us this lazy daze Honolulu Hammock which is packed with all sorts of animations including those naughty ones for when you feel more invigorated, having scoffed your way through the waiting meal. Prawn and Crab dinners with cocktails, what could be nicer? Animated, interactive meals by Tiffany’s Collection and those are at The Home Show 2017.

 

*~*~*

For the Fashion part of the post, I’m wearing Petit Chat‘s original Mesh flip flops for men and these are such fun. They will fit all sorts of feet and there are two HUDs, one for plain colours and one for patterns. You can change the soles, strap and toe ring individually and you’ll find that the HUD has colours to match most of your summerwear. The classic original Mesh shorts are by Ascend (with lots of fittings including one for ADAM) and they are at FaMESHed. Finally, the Cowboy hat with hair is one of No_Match‘s offerings at the Hair Fair, one of four new designs – you’ll be spoiled for choice! Choose your preferred colour of hair and you also get a HUD that changes the hat colours, too.

You don’t have to be mad… but it helps!

with 18 comments

 

Alice and the Mad Hatter have decided to break out the best china and have a tea party in the garden. Now prospective party goers don’t have to be mad… but it helps!  It’s a lovely sunny day and even the book trees have blossomed, with books of course.

There’s a game of chess happening but it’s not conventional rules.  The Dormouse is awake for once but he’s playing the rabbit who famously leaves early because he’s got somewhere else to go.  Phoenix Junior is flummoxed by the whole thing! He’s only interested in cake really.

 

Meanwhile, at the Cheshire Cat end of the table, the lazy daisy has at last woken up, which is just as well since his cuppa is going cold!  The cat’s got his paw on the situation 🙂

 

Alice is doing her best to look cute, while the Mad Hatter contemplates his half a cup of tea.  Maybe the Rainbow Phoenix has done a trick on it!
