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.

Hygge Hangout

with 4 comments

We’ve got the pale yellow skies of winter with a sprinkling of snow today! But you can be extra cosy in this beautiful and practical new cabin by KraftWork. It’s from the Hygge Set which is currently at Uber.

There’s a couple of ways of approaching the word, Hygge. It’s a Danish word which attempts to encapsulate the feeling of cosiness as being something charming or special. You can’t buy a Hygge living room in real life because the Danish see it as an emotional state rather than anything material. It also describes our ability to recognise and enjoy the current moment, and to indulge into the art of creating intimacy in a room. In other words, it’s creating a feeling of cosiness and knowing when you’ve got there!

I really enjoyed decorating this cabin by Kraftwork, and have used it in several posts now. What I like about it is the style and the practicality. I think we can go over the top with Scandi Design until it loses the sense of being useful. But this cabin has a flow-through ethic which means the two rooms can be used for either bedroom or living room, whatever you desire. The chimneys are well observed with a great smoke effect and there’s a couple of blazing fires – indoors and out. The outdoorsy fire extends the living space, you could set up a breakfast table and chairs here and be relatively comfortable, given the time of year. The flooring is a warm wood and the walls also are a warm coloured render. All these features add to the Hygge feeling of warmth and cosiness.

Park Life

with 5 comments

I’ve been on a week’s leave and am not really supposed to be back until Monday, but I couldn’t resist doing another Autumnal scene!  It’s such a beautiful season and is rather short in our virtual world.  This scene looks like the foliage density of a park but it doesn’t take many trees and shrubs to get a really good effect,  so if you wanted to repeat this landscape on a more permanent basis than I did just for blogging’s sake, it wouldn’t break the prim bank.  Always a good thing to know.

Grandma’s Kitchen

with 6 comments

 

It’s no secret, I loves me some vintage furniture! I’m featuring pieces from the new exclusively Home & Garden Event, Blueprint. That’s amongst other gorgeous products from clever Designers.

I started off with kitchen units by The Jewel Garden and went from there. They had a choice of 3 pastel fridge/cooker combos and I really liked the blue. Never mind about my Gran, this was very like my Mum’s kitchen – bless her! She loved the 1950s style and kept quite a few of her RL designer pieces which nowadays can command good money for such mid-century finery.

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!

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:-
