Countdown to Christmas

with 5 comments

Things that make you go OhEmGee, look at the state of your office! Thus it is with pre-holiday organisation.  Even the pup is amused or perhaps he’s considering the tray of figs.  I know the kitten is considering the cardinals.

Pretty in Pink

with 5 comments

 

A gorgeous rose pink bedroom using mostly brand new products. It features a portable closet/wardrobe set by Silence which you can rez in Edit mode and hardly have to fiddle with. Once it’s rezzed you can move the pieces around though, and enlarge if you wish. What I love about this designer is the way every angle is covered, for instance the side of the rug… the edge I mean, looks like a real life rug would and you can see the cutwork pattern as your eye moves inward. The curtains fold and hang as if in real life, too, where nothing is absolutely symmetrical but works within the constraints of physics. And then the clothes hanging up – some neat and some not so neat!

The new 4-poster bed by Cheeky Pea, which is also user created mesh, has versions of white and rose pink bedclothes in PG and Adult versions, and is gently textured so that there’s some variation in self pattern. When you leap into the bed the sheets alter and fold down so you can lie properly without disappearing into the bedclothes. The bedframe is plain in my picture but you can click on it and reveal drapes and swathes of flowers (see vendor picture below).

That beautiful Tiffany etched glass style mirror, rolled letter vase, bottle and bowl decor is an ex-PocketGacha set (August) by MADRAS that you can gacha for AND buy as a whole set with Permissions of Copy & Modify. It’s Shabby Chic in style and comes as individual pieces and also a couple of linked sets for instant decor. Very useful!

Raindale’s classic rocking chair will rock gently upon touch and has three versions – with cushion & blanket, with cushion and no deco. It’s just perfect for autumnal decorating and even has original animations you won’t find anywhere else. Look at the stud detail on the chair seat and the swirl end arms.

Lastly, the lovely windchime is a Group Gift from TLC Home Collection. It will turn around to and fro naturally on touch and you can set the speed. So it would act as if you had the window open.

The wallpaper and flooring textures are mine. You can get variations of the bird wallpaper in real life from B&Q *laughs*, that’s if you live in the UK of course. We’re definately having a vintage wave in home decorating here, about time too.

Not just at Sea

leave a comment »

 

Albatrosses are large seabirds that range widely in the Southern Ocean and the North Pacific. They are reputed to spend much of their lives at sea, only seeking land for breeding purposes. But is that always true? The title of this scene is called, “Not just at Sea”. Make up your own mind!

In Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s famous poem, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” (1798), an albatross starts to follow a ship, which would generally be considered good fortune. However, the mariner shoots the bird with a crossbow and brings a terrible curse on the ship and its crew. The albatross is hung around the mariner’s neck by the crew to symbolise his guilt. Thus, this innocent seabird can be both an omen of good or bad luck, as well as a metaphor for a burden to be carried as a penance.

The gorgeous fountain is from also Known as, and it’s currently at Enchantment. I do urge you to visit this themed Event, it’s full of wonderment and products to do with the fairy tale, “The Frog Prince”.
