Yellow

“Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah they were all yellow” ~ Coldplay

As soon as I saw the rustic gold fountain fireplace by unKindness, currently at FaMESHed, I wanted to do this picture. Traditionally on Second Life® yellow is considered a less than perfect colour, especially in fashion, but it can be just beautiful when creatively mixed with contrasting colours.  Also featuring one of the rooms in Merak’s Abandoned Moroccan House which you can find in the most recent edition of Builder’s Box.

Merak’s “Abandoned Moroccan House” is a beautiful piece of carefully observed architecture which has real atmosphere, especially when viewed in various Windlight settings. It has a decorated courtyard which is open to the elements, and stone steps to the roofed house area. Land Impact is 110 with Permissions of Copy/Modify.  It would be perfect both on a themed sim and as a roleplay building.  Once furnished the atmosphere would change into a lived-in building so lots of decorating possibilities with this home.

You don’t have to be mad… but it helps!

with 18 comments

 

Alice and the Mad Hatter have decided to break out the best china and have a tea party in the garden. Now prospective party goers don’t have to be mad… but it helps!  It’s a lovely sunny day and even the book trees have blossomed, with books of course.

There’s a game of chess happening but it’s not conventional rules.  The Dormouse is awake for once but he’s playing the rabbit who famously leaves early because he’s got somewhere else to go.  Phoenix Junior is flummoxed by the whole thing! He’s only interested in cake really.

 

Meanwhile, at the Cheshire Cat end of the table, the lazy daisy has at last woken up, which is just as well since his cuppa is going cold!  The cat’s got his paw on the situation 🙂

 

Alice is doing her best to look cute, while the Mad Hatter contemplates his half a cup of tea.  Maybe the Rainbow Phoenix has done a trick on it!

Too much cake!

with 4 comments

 

Can you ever have too much cake?  Well, you have to give it a really good go!  This is our second round of cakes and the dog is already collapsed and so is Arrchie. Can I manage any more?  While I’m contemplating another portion of blueberry cake, the goose is eyeing up the mooncakes 🙂

A beautiful set of spring/summertime furniture by ::Newchurch:: that I adore, called  “Spring Party Dining Set”. Everything is so detailed, even the napkin rings have little leaf shapes on them. I appreciate the attention to detail and the fact that you can texture change the chairs, table mats and runner. There’s also some great animations in this set, that add to the humour of a spring party.  Pick up a copy of this set at the ON9 Event.

22769 ~ [Bauwerk]‘s set for March Arcade is called “Colors of Spring gacha” and I’ve got most of it out here. Fine work indeed, and perfect for a garden or forest setting. Lots of extras apart from the Hideaway that can be used in gardens and porches or indoors. That’s a direct landmark to the vendor on Arcade.
