Roundabouts are the stuff of childhood memories, maybe you rode one at the local fair or you found one in a nearby playground and made a beeline for it! I think adults love these just as much as children and there’s no shame in beating the kids to your favourite brightly painted horse. Of course you need candy floss to make the experience complete πŸ™‚

Raindale‘s Windridge gazebo is just right to house our merry-go-round, and it’s available at the current Cosmopolitan Event round. You can rez it with or without the string lights but it’s so nice to have those lights twinkling about you. There’s a texture changer for the tiled roof and I used the blue one to match Culprit’s beautiful Vintage Carousel. There’s a couple of texture versions for this – one is a delicate blue and white combo and the other is a more robust red. The carousel rotates at a reasonable rate, at least it doesn’t make the riders feel giddy. There’s a variety of different pose choices for the riders including Drunk, Huggy, Near Fall, Wave and Gallop. Great fun!

All around I’ve been using Little Branch‘s current trees and vegetation. The orange tree is out at the store and the Young Bradford is at Limit8 – hurry if you want this as supplies are limited. These trees are gently animated and the branches move as if in a light breeze. It’s so nice to have that natural movement within your landscaping scenes as it gives gardens, parks and landscapes life. They are both 4-Season trees which make them versatile – it’s like you purchased four trees in one pack. I also used Wild Grass in lavender (you can also get the same in dry texture), animated Snakeweed, a white, rounded Flowerfield (a Little Branch speciality) and a low impact hill over and over again to build up the scene. Doesn’t take much to look really fabulous.

In the foreground are Serenity Style‘s Purr Cute Ducks which are a gacha. My favourite is the one sitting down.Β  Now this gacha was from December 2017 PocketGacha originally, and there are some of these as resellers on Marketplace (I just had a look) or check out the mainstore.

Last but not least, are the Magical Orbs by KraftWork and HERA. This is a collaboration between the two designers, and currently showing at SaNaRae. The orbs are a photo prop which is meant to be held but I’ve rezzed it here. Each prop will include 3 different Bento poses to make your photography stand out in a realistic way. Emissive maps are enabled for superior photographic effects. They do look gorgeous! I was using the Gold version as it had little blue butterflies that matched the horses in the merry-go-round.Β  These things happen like magic – it’s a magical scene, after all πŸ™‚

Old Friends Feast

with 14 comments


Two old friends celebrating Dia de los Muertos with authentic food and a very posh dining set!

I set the scene in Serenity Style’s Attic skybox, part of a gacha that’s on the current PocketGacha round, this is a beautiful skybox which has a huge picture window at one end and a sunbeam effect. It takes a bit of building around that light prim but you if do it away from the prim, then gather everything up and slide it into place, you’ll have no problems. The rest of the skybox has doors to a large room and on the floor there’s a hatchway to the rest of the house – if you had one! The flying sheets of music are also from that gacha, another great piece for decorating.

The posh Abigail Dining Set is by Fancy Decor and it is currently at Collabor88. I’m a bit late with this set because of being ill – but it is well worth collecting. The texturing is second to none and I just adore those chairs with their fancy high back fretwork. The place settings are so easy to deal with, too – cutlery, plates, napkins and a pumpkin starter are all in one piece. That white coffee pot and cups set are also very nice and I’ll be using that again and again, it’s a classic.

The authentic pottery, food and picture are from the eTNIA set to celebrate Dia de los Muertos. The multi-day originally Mexican holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl. The holiday has spread throughout the world, being absorbed within other deep traditions for honouring the dead.

Bar in the Sky

with 4 comments


Here’s a skybox that you’ll love for the masses of light streaming in from the windows and the realistic, beautiful texturing overall – plus the addition of an outside deck! It has such a pleasant feel to it, and would be a joy to live in. The down side is that you’ll have to wait until October 2nd to claim your copy. That’s when [Fourth Wall] will release the Modern Attic Skybox at the new round of INDUSTRIE.

I’ve included three pictures of the interior here and also decorated a portion of it – one of the side walls – as a modern bar for the discerning gent *laughs*. Ah well, the bulldog pup got there first and is hanging around the fridge hoping there’s some milk/sausages to be had, he’s not really interested in the alchofrolics.



There are windows on both sides of the skybox and the result creates a really airy atmosphere that needs a consequent lightness in the decoration, I feel.


On one side a pair of double glass doors opens to a small concrete patio. Step out there and you are quite secure as a wall goes all the way around. It’d be great for a couple of deck chairs and/or some planters. Click on the doors to open and close.


The “bar” is a slightly enlarged version of KraftWork‘s Modern Tete a Tete, an interesting piece that contains poses for both sides. You can get some artful effects if you use it as a background. As you can see here, it has great decorative potential as well. That marvellous Chalk Board Fridge is the KraftWork September Group Gift and it’s a mere L$25 to join the group – details below.

Artwork is by unKindness, and there are a couple of massed sets here, one for the wall and one that stands on the floor against a wall. They are arranged already so no messing about – that’s what I like!

The clock is by Newchurch and it matches a recent table that I blogged. These are on SL Time and can also be altered as you wish. I think the clock is a modern classic. The bar accoutrements are from [ zerkalo ] and I haven’t shown the entire gacha. That does contain a more rustic bar but as you can see, the pieces are versatile enough to fit in with other styling trends.
