Barby on the Beach

with 4 comments

One of the best places for a BBQ is on a beach at the height of summer. There’s always the sea to cool off in if it gets too hot. My BBQ set here is by [CIRCA] and it’s mega interactive.  You can set up and cook on the Barby, and then rez and serve from the Food and Drink Tables where there are lots of options.  Designer, Cherelle, is certainly spoiling us here!

At the front of the scene is Raindale’s beautiful vintage set which is made for the Vintage Fair and if you haven’t been to this annual Event yet do pop along and see all the products – there are masses.  The radio is already set up for various stations so you’ll be able to enjoy that aspect along with the copious beach towel poses, Designer, Keira, makes her own so you won’t find those anywhere else.

My other Sponsor here is Little Branch and if you want the best in palms, look no further!  You get extra landscaping items in the pack suitable for the tree’s natural habitat, such as beach sand, dry grass and snakegrass, and these are always welcome!  I really like the bendy palm, it’s architecturally pleasing, and you can do a lot to enhance the landscaping of any tropical scene with these palm packs.

Now, Alexa will love what’s cooking on the BBQ… juicy steaks!

Underneath the Mango Tree

leave a comment »

 

“Underneath the Mango Tree
Me honey and me can watch for the moon
Underneath the Mango Tree
Me honey and me make boolooloop soon” ~ Cibelle

I remember this song from the James Bond film, Dr No.  It was ‘sung’ by Honey Rider when she emerged dripping from the sea  in what was a very racy bikini for those days. She’d been hunting for shells and pearls. Whenever I see or hear of a mango tree, this daft song comes into my head – go figure 🙂

The scene features a new beach hut by Galland Homes which is very versatile because you could put it facing the sea like the above or further up on the land proper.  There’s plenty of room to furnish the inner room and also down on the deck which I’m using as a mini pontoon here.

The trees are by Little Branch.  The Avocado and the Mango.  I’ve included some close-up shots of these because they are so wonderfully made with plenty of leafy branches and fruits in the spring/summer versions.

Vintage Chillax on the Beach

with 4 comments

 

Chez Moi Furnitures have come up with the best beach set of the season, so far! At least in my humble opinion but then I do love Vintage. You can have any colour you like  as long as it’s pink with white trimmings. With a strategically placed white kitten (for my PG blog), I’m ready to chillax and ignore the Election, just for today 🙂 The peacock is only interested in the cookies, after all, he’s a sensible chap.

 

 

The peacock is a new pet and he’s from TLC Home Collection. You’ll find two versions in the White Peacocks pack, currently at the Cosmopolitan Event – tail up and tail down. I actually remember when as a child we spent some years in Sri Lanka, there were quite a few white peacocks in our village who used to guard the area from snakes which they would kill and sometimes eat. They were allowed to go in and out of the houses to do this, encouraged by tasty titbits left for them.   Very useful birds! When there was rain coming they used to dance. During the mating season the peahens were embarrassed by the fights between the peacocks and used to turn around so they didn’t have to see the chaos.  I don’t know how many folks used to observe this but I was and still am fascinated by Nature in all Her glory.

 

 

Here’s all the gen in detail:-

ADAM Mesh Body – v.1.4b – Skin 1 #9 with neck blend tattoo – perfect for when you want that combination with the Avatar Head
