A Very Posh Picnic

with 8 comments

 

For when you want to dine out in style! And it’s not just for the birds and the fairies but it’s for everyone to enjoy. I’m featuring sets from Fancy Decor, Little Branch and unKindness today.

All the splendidly comfortable furniture is from the Cozy Day set by unKindness and that’s currently at Collabor88. There’s a lot of variations in this squeezable set which is for singles and couples to lounge around on nicely. Fancy Decor came up with the Hors d’oeuvre Silver Collection which will be shortly available at March Arcade. I’m showing most of it here but there are two additional pieces of buffet tables with fancy glass and fretwork panels at the front. They are thoughtfully provided by designer, Jake, for those of us who prefer to eat indoors! The gorgeous flowers are a Hello Tuesday bargain by Little Branch – all sorts of Bouton ‘dor flower fields which are a speciality of theirs. The bargain will last until Sunday 4th March and then they’ll be on Marketplace and at the Mainstore.

The diners are various birdies from TLC Home Collection, all animated and some of them will even sing. TLC make the best birds in SL® if you ask me! Then there’s a couple of very cute fairies who have flown in from Serenity Style and these were in December Lootbox.

Ragnar does the Great Viking Bake Off

with 7 comments

*~*~*

Ragnar’s been watching way too much television lately, especially the Bake Off competition series which in his case should really be banned.  This is his idea of a darn good feast and it’s held in Odin’s Hall by unKindness who so thoughtfully provided Ragnar with his ideal home.  There’s been lots of blogging pictures of the outside of this Hall and it really is magnificent with prizes of scenery and landscaping as well as the building and contents.  So here’s  picture of the inside of said Hall.  Gorgeous isn’t it? Click on the above picture for a huge version – a bit like Ragnar’s axe 🙂

The other unKindness gacha I’m featuring today is the La Confiserie gacha, and I’ve rarely seen such an amount of yummy cakes and display cases.  I’m sure Ragnar could have gone mad on the products but he wanted to make sure the extra deer got baked as well.

The Lord of Winter

with 2 comments

*~*~*

While it may be mostly Pagans who celebrate the Yule holiday, nearly all cultures and faiths have held some sort of Winter Solstice celebration or festival. Because of the theme of endless birth, life, death, and rebirth, the time of the Solstice is often associated with deities and other legendary figures.

From Norse Legend, Odin bestowed gifts at Yuletide upon his people, riding a magical flying horse across the sky. This legend may have combined with that of St. Nicholas to create the modern Santa Claus. Anyway, this is my interpretation!

*~*~*

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

Raindale
“Charfell Cabin” Updated version for The White Nights Event at The Avenue, runs through to January 6th – 35% off
Keira added a snow roof at 5 LI and string lights at 2 LI and there’s new HUD options – 5 wall colours, 5 roof colours and a winter present which will give snowy textures for some of the wooden parts and base platform. The winter version has a platform with it – 55 LI, the summer version will be 50 LI. The footprint of the cabin will be 10 by 15 metres at the default size but with Permissions of Copy/Modify this can be sized up and down.
The platform is optional and can be removed or used by itself, the Land Impact will be 8 at it’s default size of 23 by 23 metres. I think you’ll find this is a very useful piece of landscaping in it’s own right. You have a 5 option texture change HUD with the platform, too.

Sweets for Santa

with 7 comments

 

Santa always distributes plenty of sweets to folks at Christmas but I think he needs a few himself so here’s what the fairies left for him!  Please click on the picture for a huge version.

And speaking of ‘sweet’, this post is dedicated to my Blogger & Vlogger Network Secret Santa – it’s EleanorJean Resident or EJ as I know her.

I was so pleased to get EJ for the BVN Secret Santa. She’s one of those bloggers whose work I find a pleasure to read because she puts down her comments on life both bravely and honestly.

Now she’s no slouch in the Fashion department, EJ was a recent Miss Virtual World Germany (that’s her mum’s homeland) and is a dedicated, beautiful model. I was never anywhere near her level *laughs* when I was modelling, it took me all my time not to fall off the darn catwalk with the constant lag. However, I’m not bad at Home & Garden so I thought I’d dedicate this sweet scene to a sweet person ❤

Read EleanorJean’s blog and check out her Flickr

Market Le Cute

with 6 comments

 

This has to be one of the cutest markets you’re ever likely to come across!  Featuring products from Serenity Style, Raindale, TLC Home Collection, Storax Tree, Little Branch and others. I was really fortunate that all these sets matched up!

The Otterbury Tree platform is by Raindale  and you see the top portion of it here, with decorative lights and just the beginning of the ladder down to the ground.  It’s all wooden parts and has a couple of versions, one contains a tree in Autumn livery.

Now on top the platform, I’ve place the total version of TLC Home Collection’s Animated Harvest Scenery, this contains all the items together. This is also available in a version without shadows. Other versions are the Barn Owl with Fence and Sign, and the Harvest Mice and Apple Crates. These are modify so you’ll be able to split them up like I always do 🙂

Interspersed is Serenity Style’s wonderful gacha set – Arya Wooden Forest Friends – lots of versions of various forest animals and birds made in wood cutout style. This is such a delightful and folksy set which you’ll find at the current Lootbox gacha event.

Cheddar Gorge is a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills, near the village of Cheddar, Somerset, England.  It’s a magical place of prehistoric caves and hill climbs. I think this set has captured some of the whimsical qualities of the area.

Now here’s some of the mice which are after the apples, they look like tiny field mice and they are extra cute because the animation has them wriggle their noses and look around!

 

Here’s a close-up of the Farmer’s Market stall, and just look at how beautifully the fruit and veg are made, and another of those cheeky field mice is investigating the produce.

 

If you’re admiring the bobcat resting under a pumpkin patch here (and who wouldn’t) let me tell you that he’s a mere L$20 for Storax Tree group members! You do get the most generous group gifts and discounts from this design house so it’s well worth joining.
