My Tequila Time

with 4 comments

Indio means (I think) a member of any of the indigenous peoples of America or eastern Asia in areas formerly subject to Spain or Portugal and it’s mainly used to describe someone of mostly mesoamerican (Mexican or South American) descent. This new lounge set is the result of a happy collaboration by Fancy Decor and Commoner (I suggest more of this behaviour) and it looks Mexican to me, kinda Aztec.

Now I’ve never visited Mexico (more’s the pity) and I’ve never even tried Tequila so now I’m intrigued. I looked it up on Google and Tequila is distilled from Blue Agave which apparently tastes like honey. You can also use Agave as a sweetener if you grow it yourself and even if you don’t like honey, you’ll like this – ah, the marketing! My favourite advert at the moment is about this cat who is switching a desk lamp on and off with his paw. The accompanying chat goes like this… day, night, day, night, what is this sorcery? A machine that can turn day into night? Madness! And then off he goes to eat his cat food like a sensible chap. A lot of marketing is exactly like this and it takes a wise person to call Madness on it!

Blogger’s Challenge #2 – open to all!

with 9 comments

It’s my turn for Meri’s Blogger’s Challenge, which we’re doing every fortnight. Everyone is welcome to join in! It’s pure blogging, doesn’t have to be marketed anywhere and it’s just for fun.

Now, as most of the blogging world knows, it is FaMESHed Event’s 7th Anniversary round and there’s a whole lotta gifting going on.  The challenge is to make a post using gifts from this fabulous anniversary round.  It’s calmed down enough that you’ll be able to get into the Event if you haven’t already.

  1. You can choose between Fashion or Home & Garden or even both if you want to!
  2. Two items (fashion or décor according to what you’ve chosen) can be used in addition to the free gifts and they can be from anywhere.
  3. For the H&G bloggers, walls and floors are allowed as you’ve got to have those.
  4. For the Fashion bloggers, props and poses are allowed as they add to the scenes.
  5. Everything else must be free gifts from FaMESHed 7th Anniversary.

Leave the western world behind

King of the Castle

with 8 comments

Beautiful spring products from various Events around the Grid!

I wanted to show the sheer quality of these products in some close-up shots.  That mirror and candelabra by Fancy Decor, for instance.  Have you noticed the tiny tassels that adorn the metal parts, such attention to detail.  I also liked that there were a lot of versions of these in the pack. The mirror is antique silver – a nice vintage piece.  I’m experimenting with windlights to see how real I can get the metals to look. Not difficult with these Fancy Decor pieces.

*~*~*

The collared dove is so beautifully observed, look at the variety of feathers and the scales on his feet. Dahlia’s set is equally stunning, the way the pages spread open, the satin book marker with medallion and the flower petals floating down from the vase of poppies.
