Rock a Bye Baby

leave a comment »

“Rock-a-bye, baby, thy cradle is green;
Father’s a nobleman, mother’s a queen;
And Aggy’s a lady, and wears a gold ring;
And Johnny’s a drummer, and drums for the king.” ~ The first printed version from Mother Goose’s Melody (London, c. 1765)

I liked this version of the traditional nursery rhyme and it fitted the products in the picture so well!  The room is in one of KraftWork’s excellent houses which you can obtain through the April Deco(c)rate subscription box.  Of course I had to take some more photos 🙂  In the shot below we are looking down on the roof top which you can access via the ladder.  That skylight window is really great and adds extra light to the room below. Doors will open out onto the balcony. How about decorating this with a rooftop garden 🙂

*~*~*

Here’s a side view of the balcony and stairs up to the roof.  You can also see the floor below which will take up the extra ceiling room of the balcony making it a larger living space.

*~*~*

Here we are almost at the top floor and you can see the stairs from the floor below, plus the handy safety rail to save on accidents!

*~*~*

Let that sunlight in!  Joking apart, when you use the rain particle effect, it really does look like a dull day in Chelsea, suitable for staying in and stuffing yourself up the tube.  This is a Brit way of saying OMG you’re acting like a couch potato.

Dine out in Comfort

with 9 comments

 

Two of my favourite things to do – relax and eat – what could be better. The cats think so, too, indeed one of them is considering that fried chicken dish full of tasty morsels, especially while the cook’s missing.

This gorgeous house is by KraftWork and you can pick up a copy at 6º Republic which runs until May 20th. It was a stand out product for me at the Event and it’s called the “Puget Sound Retreat”. Perfect for summertime scenes, you’ve got a nice large patio in partial shade and an airy spacious living space which contains shelving, sink and counter top area, huge glass windows, glass door and stairs to the roof which will naturally increase the floor space no end. Also included is a nice animated fire prim so you can either use that in the internal fireplace to make it cosy at night or the outside one for barbecues and evening cuddles. I filled that with flowers in the photograph. And… you also get a handy wall panel which I used on the building here. It could also be utilised inside to block some of the glass if you didn’t want the building to be so open. I did look up the name Puget Sound that the KraftWork building is named after and it turns out to be an area of the North Western US state of Washington. It’s an inlet of the Pacific Ocean and looks like the sort of place that would be great for sailing. That’s info for my Eurozone and Eastern readers!

 

 

 

Featured is a new food gacha by unKindness and that’s at 6º Republic as well. Yummy is all I can say and it’s really good because you get both preparation and finished product. For instance, with that tasty fried chicken the cat is after in the skillet, you have a corresponding chicken prep product. It makes for excellent roleplay and that is part of the fun of SL®. Appreciate the Country Fixin’s gacha.

 

 

Chilling out is the other kitty on [ zerkalo ]‘s new bed, from a gacha which is positively brimming with luxury, this is the Relaxed Corner gacha and it’s currently at the new round of Kustom9. Now the Rare for this is a rather nice fireplace but there are also two beds, one of which is Adult and those are Commons. So… a chance of winning an Adult bed as a Common, can’t be bad. You may have to wait a while to get into Kustom9, I tried today and it was no go even in the quiet Eurozone time. Good job Zerks is a sponsor of mine! The cushions, quilt, and bed all have really nice animations and the Knotted Rope lights are most unusual. A nice lot of décor items.

 

 

22769 made up a lot of the other décor from the Backyard Patio gacha which you’ll find at May Gacha Garden Event. Very nice set and it includes a smashing seahorse on plinth piece of décor which I really appreciated because I collect animal inspired décor pieces, the house is full of them. 22769 is all user created Mesh and the furniture animations are original as well. Generally, they are a prolific and creative design house which has stood the test of time. I recommend visiting their mainstore.

 

 

The garden is made exclusively from Little Branch products and I must say, designer Cari produces exquisite trees and shrubs that are suitable for all season landscaping. They are realistic and versatile and you usually get bonus plant items in each tree pack – I’ve detailed those below. I love the woven trunk of the Flowering Dogwood, it’s just beautiful and showed up well in my photograph. Cari has worked hard on reducing the Land Impact of the Little Branch trees over time and now you can use quite a lot of them for a reasonable outlay – make orchards, forests, even pack your garden with trees if you want to without breaking the prim bank. The mainstore is a delight to visit and would make a good first date (because it’s interesting, beautiful and nothing contentious) or just because you love the natural world.

The Edge of the Woods

with 10 comments

 

“I’m hiding in the dappled shadows at the edge of the woods, watching my childhood saviour. He’s busy working as usual and he never notices the natural world on his doorstep, stuck in the world of ink and paper. It’s just black and white, not at all like life, which can be so full of colour it makes you giddy.

I remember the comforting caresses and loving words when I was young, the green sweet grass of the enclosure, the ready nourishment laid out just for me. And it was more than enough, to grow up in the sun. But there came a time when I yearned for the company of another like me and the feeling became so overwhelming that one night I found a loose fence, kicked it hard and stepped out into the other world.

And I did find that company, eventually. And with that came a whole new family. So sometimes, when we’re out this way, I look up my human relative. I’m sure if he actually saw me I’d be back in that field as quickly as you can neigh. I’d have family but it would be his children racing around with me and although they are joyful things, they can never see into my heart. It is as green as the forest around me, a shining emerald, and it can’t be compelled by any man’s fancy.”

*~*~*

Here’s a couple of close-ups of all that lovely furniture and décor!  First the drawing table and seat from one of my fav designers – Merak.  She makes such carefully observed and precise, realistic Mesh.

And this is an oh so comfortable room that I think I’m going to use as our summer lounge.  That sofa you could just collapse into and fall asleep when you’re supposed to be working!

Conservatory

with 12 comments

 

A conservatory that’s anything but conservative!  One of the best I’ve seen, it’s made by designer, Benoit, of Duvet Day, who specialises in gacha sets.  Imagine how you’d feel if on the first Play you got that building 🙂   Although there’s lots of gorgeous items here, one of my all time favourites is the Mesh India Samyukta Lamp Cabinet which reminds me of my childhood. We used to have one just like that which was jealously guarded by mum who put all her spices into the drawers.  If us boys were caught around playing with the drawers which was kinda irresistible, we’d get a cuff around the ears!

Outside you can just see the new Little Branch tree. This I’ll be showcasing later on but I have to say that this architectural Black Olive tree is a classic and I’m sure I’ll be using a lot.

Earlier on this week I attended a brilliant blogger’s H&G scene build by Wendz Tempest. It was kindly given on the KraftWork building platform.  Wendz showed us how she buildings a scene freestyle.  No walls or house at first – blimey!  Lots of tips and tricks were shared. Well I liked the idea of it, so I partially built the scene above freestyle, selected all the pieces and shoved them into the conservatory.  I still fiddled about but it was fun – why don’t you try it out.

Meerkat Holiday

with 16 comments

 

The Meerkat family are holidaying at a green oasis, it makes a change from their usual desert prairie land! Also featuring lots of products from the inaugural round of Illuminate.

I really loved the {LORE} Spring Garden Nook, it has a lot of texture changes which make a big difference to the overall look. Here, I was using the gray stone, dark ivy and dark vines. Lucas Lameth has come up with three garden décor products which are absolutely beautiful and I used the Whispering Ginkgo around the windows of the nook. I’ve also used some of Raindale‘s romantic gacha – Littlevale. It includes a lot of lighting options made up in flowers and lanterns – they’ll be really useful for garden décor – and the old fountain overgrown with vegetation is a delightful focal piece.

Little Branch‘s tree is the Wild Linden which I have modified to be fairly small here but you can resize it a lot and the Land Impact is only 12 at the largest size which is huge. Another name for this tree is the Lime or Basswood and when in bloom its flowers will fill the air with beautiful aroma. You can make linden flower tea, it’s delicious. As a herb the linden blossom is a diaphoretic that makes you ‘sweat’ out fevers, infusions of freshly picked linden blossom are calming and soothing. Some of these older trees have become healing shrines over time and places of pilgrimage where they are known as “Mary Trees”. The heart shaped leaf has also been linked with love and when two people wanted to get married in the old days, they simply pressed their thumbs against a linden trunk with the whole community in circle around them, then they were considered married.

TLC Home Collection has all those cute meerkats and more in a gacha, find them over at ULTRA new round. If you use them in a more natural environment there’s also a couple of meerkat babies in a sand burrow that are equally enchanting. The little robin you’ll find at the mainstore.

Don’t forget – ULTRA and Illuminate are on the same sim, opposite to each other, so you can do all your shopping at once!

Down at the Irish Pub Lounge!

with 14 comments

 

There’s a special atmosphere in an Irish pub lounge, it’s kinda rustic, homely and comfortable and everyone is invited!

I’m featuring a couple of brilliant items from the upcoming March Deco(c)rate – Days in Dublin – which is released on March 8th. This is part of the upper room in The Lost Arrow Irish Pub by Serenity Style. There’s two floors and it’s a faithful reproduction of a typical Irish pub, with all it’s old fashioned charm. Then there’s that gorgeous James Joyce Library by KraftWork, you even get a ladder with pose to read your books – the Irish are great readers and novelists, come to that!

Because it’s getting close to a traditional Irish Saint’s Day, the leprechauns are visiting thanks to an extremely cute set by Chez Moi. Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated annually on 17th March in Northern Ireland and is also known as the Feast of Saint Patrick.
