The geese think this pool is exclusively for them.   Thanks, TLC Home Collection!

The Canada Goose is a large, wild species native to Arctic and temperate regions of North America. Its migration occasionally reaches North Europe, and it has been introduced to the UK, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile and the Falkland Islands. They are able to establish colonies in urban and cultivated areas with little trouble – so no wonder they have taken over the pool 🙂

In the background, I’m grateful for the shade of Little Branch’s latest offering – the Tulip Tree. It rezs instantly and has zero lag. There’s landscaping extras in the pack, see details below.

The Tulip Tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) is a vigorous deciduous tree with pleasing lobed leaves and green & orange tulip shaped flowers in summer. The leaves turn butter yellow in the autumn. It is a part of the Magnolia family. You’ll find these growing in Eastern North America. The tallest the tree will reach is 12 metres and it takes between 20 – 50 years to achieve this height. The Tulip Tree is low maintenance and generally pest and disease free which makes it a popular architectural and garden tree.

Fortunately, the geese are not interested in my brand new pool furniture by Granola. I really love this set, it’s so elegant and well made. The animations are thoughtful, too. You don’t always find that in furniture.

Lots of the décor, including the tea set and fruit bowl, is from a wonderful new gacha by 22769, and you’ll find that at The Arcade, if you can get in. If you like this set, it is exclusive to Arcade and will be retired afterwards, so get on the machine asap.

To the Beach at Sandy Cove

with 4 comments

 

There’s still a couple of days to go on the current Cosmopolitan Event, so why not check out this wonderful beach gacha by Duvet Day.  It’s called “Sandy Cove” and the Rare is a spacious one-floor beach house with porch and deck front and back.   You could fill it with quite an amount of furniture and décor.  No fewer than 4 other items are filled with poses, some of them especially apt for the beach and beach life.  If you miss Cosmo, check out the Duvet Day mainstore.

 

 

I’m showing off the Sandy Cove Shower here. It contains 5 menus of poses including Adult ones, so it’s fantastic value for a gacha prize.  All the gacha items are detailed below.  “You can’t buy happiness but you can buy a surfboard, and that’s getting close!”

 

 

Flaked out sunbathing with the pets, here.  The cute chinchilla is from JIAN and is a bargain for Fifty Linden Friday – who knows, JIAN may leave the vendor out all weekend.

 

 

You’ll see from the pictures that this is a large beach house.  Here’s a shot from the opposite end showing the bleached wood and white plaster work. It’s just perfect texturing. The two picture windows open and close and lead onto a large deck with steps down to the beach.

Fun at the Beach with -aKa-

-aKa- beach set

Have lots of fun on your beach with this gorgeous set of beach furniture from -aKa-!

You can pick up these items  all month long at Swank Event’s first anniversary round – makes for a great day’s shopping as over 100 designers are in on the “Swank at the Beach” theme.

The Beach Huts are available in blue, teal, red and white versions and they have a Land Impact of 23, which is great for all that detail. Sun bleached boards, shingle roof, door is scripted to open/close on touch and Permissions are Copy/Modify. This means you can tint the inside walls in any colour you want via the Edit mode. The coloured versions don’t take tint too well on the outside but then there’s the white version in which you can do just that. Blue’s a favourite colour of mine, so I’ve got a blue theme going on in the photograph. The huts are big enough to make a nice room full of furniture for all your beach needs and would also make a great prop for blogging due to the low Land Impact.

The crates are just 1 Land Impact each  (colours as per the huts) and the stool has sit poses – 5 for gents and 4 for ladies. The cushion on the stool has a shell pattern. Permissions are Copy/Modify.

The striped rug with pillows looks so relaxing and it’s packed with animations. Land Impact of 8 with Permissions of Copy/Modify. Poses – 4 female and 5 male sits, cuddles for all couple combinations, same for intimate and there’s a good variety of these. Nice to see all couples being catered for here! The rug is a useful and stylish item to take along with you when you visit beach sims this summer where you can rez.

Gacha Good event – Lacrime dell’anima

with 2 comments

Lacrime dell'anima - beach scene 1

 

“I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.” Sea Fever by John Masefield
I’m having a quiet sleep and a sweet dream here, on Lacrime dell’anima‘s Hanging Chair, part of an exclusive set for the May Gacha Good event!

Gacha Good is a monthly event, that runs from 8th until 30th of the month.  Hosted by the Fun with Hunts group, it not only has a large batch of over 80 designer gacha to play on but also around the edge of the event room there’s designer vendors, too. There are around 40 merchants in total (and growing each month) with a choice of new and old gacha items so if you’re looking for new items or to catch up on some oldies but goodies – why not visit soon.

Lacrime dell’anima (means tears of the soul in Italian) is a store run by designer Luciana (luluts), which has many gorgeous Home & Garden items both at the mainstore and on Marketplace. The amount of animations packed into each piece, no matter how small, is very good and makes these pieces well worth purchasing for general use.

Lacrime dell'anima - beach scene2

 

This beautiful aqua coloured set is just part of Lacrime’s exclusives for the May round. The hanging chairs are 9 Land Impact each and you can switch brightness on and off. A good variety of poses for unisex, male and female with some cute ground poses included make it nice for the beach. Perms are Copy only. Sea Summer Crate set, also in aqua, has a Land Impact of 3 each, brightness on/off as you prefer and 12 assorted sit poses for unisex, male and female. They’re stylish for only 3 LI and perfect on the beach or patio of a beach home. Perms are Copy only. There is also a table and bench set to match. These summertime sets are available in blue, aqua and sand, and offered at 50% off what would be the usual price.

Here’s the vendor posters showing Lacrime’s three gacha, for very little you can get a great piece for your home. The “Joyful Living Room” gacha even has an ultrarare couch which includes intimate poses. Can’t go wrong with the textures in this set, either. The outdoorsy “Woodland Collection” gacha features an ultrarare gazebo, rare cuddles benches and additional pieces to match up. Finally, the Gothic style “Mystery Collection” has an ultrarare sofa which includes intimate poses, rare Ottomans and table chests, lantern and dividers for the commons. Why not try your luck?
