Great Expectations

with 4 comments

*~*~*

The Mallard Family have gained a new duckling and she’s very cute. So they’re all having a  fortune telling Tarot reading given by Harry. Even Grandma attended, bringing along the rest of the eggs with her already in the nest. I’m not sure if Harry actually understands all the cards, though, because he’s got his reference book open on the table and he’s frowning somewhat. Let’s hope he gives a decent reading *laughs*.

*~*~*

All this daftness is to show you the latest gacha by Raindale. It’s currently showing at The Crossroads Event, which runs to the end of April. It’s the first time designer Keira has offered a building… and it’s a beauty. The “Duskberg” is a Gothic style gacha (which suits Harry very well), the Rare building is 33 Land Impact with a footprint of 5 by 8 metres. The Commons are:-
Bench – 3 LI – 13 animations
Chair – 2 LI – 7 animations
Table – 1 LI
Carpet – 4 LI
Candelabrum (fire on/off on touch) – 1 LI
Tarot (cards and books) – 1 LI each
Frames – 1 LI
Floor lamp (light on|off on touch) – 3 LI

Only 50L per Play which is a totally daft price to pay for such a lovely house.  Here it is in a suitably cold and Gothic style night setting.

Here’s the rest of the Home & Garden items:-

Great Horned Owl v1.2 – Animania
Animated Grey Horse Black Hair by Hannah Kozlowski

TLC Home Collection – Standing Mallard Duck Family – 1 LI each C/M, Mallards with ducklings – You can get this beauties free in Land of Rainbow‘s Easter Egg Hunt, runs to April 20th – search for free eggs hidden around the sim!

Santa’s Afternoon Hideaway

with 4 comments

The Elves noticed that Santa disappeared some afternoons. He couldn’t be contacted at all.  We thought he was up to something but no matter how we tried, we couldn’t find him until today – and that was only by chance!

So we were gathered around  the fire, enjoying the warmth and just being out on a cold, clear day. Looking around for some more logs to keep the fire going, I noticed a strange reddish glint in the house. Now nobody had lived there for years and although things never get shabby in Second Life® unless they are textured that way in the first place, the glimmering looked out of place.

I clicked open the door and… well!  What a lot of gossip to tell you 🙂 The room was decked out luxuriously and the glinting that had so intrigued us happened to be Rudolph’s red nose. He was annoyed at being disturbed. He’d been waiting for Santa, having made new cakes and got the tea on (Earl Grey, naturally).

We noticed Santa’s hat resting on the comfortable looking leather chair, more evidence the reindeer was telling the truth. There was a blazing fire, and it all looked so comfortable and cosy in the afternoon sun. We decided to beat a hasty retreat and go ride on the train at Kushi Textures! It’s Santa’s North Pole extravaganza for families and beautifully done 🙂

We’re not giving away the location of Santa’s Afternoon Hideaway because… well, the old guy needs his afternoons off in peace. He’s got lots to do in the coming days!

“People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy”  ~ Anton Chekhov

There are some winter Home & Garden that gives me a warm glow!  22769 ~ [Bauwerk] has brought out a number of new releases this month, so I thought I’d put them altogether and do a whole scene, inside and out. It was very enjoyable and I must say I really like fiddling away until it all looks OK *laughs*… I’m only a beginner here so you’ll have to forgive me all my fellow bloggers who are much better at mass decorating 🙂

One of those crisp, winter days when the sun is out and it can be warm behind glass. The shadows make everything seem extra pure and white.  Then inside is cosy towards evening, when you get that special glow of a copper sunset. The cottage has two rooms, one has a fireplace.  Here’s looking through the doorway from the bedroom to the lounge.

Pretty cosy, hmm?  There’s plenty of pieces in the gacha to furnish the two rooms, add a few extras and you’d be well on your way.  You’d have to take into account that I copied some of the pieces, which you wouldn’t get in a gacha.  Here’s Christmas lunch set up – a warming soup and Christmas pud with lashings of eggnog!

And so to bed – hopefully not too tipsy!  I don’t think the rabbit or the robin would much appreciate being squashed. There are some beautifully Meshed rafter in this cottage, and set into the roof – two windows which let in the light and add to the feeling of warmth.

Just a quick close-up of the tree so you can see those beautiful, glossy glass ornaments. They are so cute with little holiday things inside, one even has a miniature tree. I changed the snowy tree to green spruce to give you a better idea of the ornaments.  Please see below for details of all items used in the pictures.
