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:-

Phen & Moz do Christmas Breakfast

with 18 comments

*~*~*

I wanted to do a Holiday collaboration with my fellow blogger and pal, Phen.  So, after much fiddling about on the Home & Garden front, here’s our idea of what Christmas breakfast turned out to be in our Glam Kitchen. You’ll be able to see Phen’s version on her blog.

Phen’s looking after the turkey, it should be cooked by dinnertime, that’s if the turkeys let her. After all they think she’s cooking one of their friends but said bird actually came from the supermarket!  Moz is trying to eat his fry-up but the animals have their eyes on it, too, no wonder he’s looking annoyed, there’s nothing worse than a dog slobbering over your breakfast 🙂

We hope you had a laugh and enjoyed the scene as much as we did making it!

Christmas in Miniature

with 4 comments

 

In praise of the ornaments of Christmas!  I’ve been spending way too many lindens on holiday decoration gacha over at Tannenbaum and Arcade,  but what struck me the most was how intricate and beautiful the ornaments are this year. So they get a post all to themselves with extra info about three of my favourite holiday gacha, thus far.

*~*~*

The background is an upstairs room in 22769’s fabulous Arcade gacha – The Mountain Lodge.  There are 18 items to collect in this gacha and it’s 50L$ per Play.  If you get desperate for missing gacha pieces and can see the lining of your wallet, try Seraphim’s Yard Sale (Arcade prizes priced fairly at the original gacha prices).

*~*~*

A simply gorgeous folksy gacha, these Belen Tiny Houses by Serenity Style are all modify so you can flatten them to fit on walls if you want – makes them a versatile ornament. The Rare has tiny string lights just under the guttering which can make quite a difference to lighting, giving a lovely, soft glow.  It’s well worth trying to get this Rare.

*~*~*

My favourite ornament gacha by The Vordun Museum & Gallery.  There are no Rares to struggle getting, just 8 beautiful Commons made in the Delft Pottery style, most unusual and rather beautiful tree ornaments.
