On the street you live

with 13 comments

 

“I have often walked down this street before;
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once am I several stories high.
Knowing I’m on the street where you live.

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of ev’ry door?
No, it’s just on the street where you live!”  By the great Nat King Cole

*~*~*

The above is one of my favourite songs that somehow I associate with Christmas for no other reason than my mum had a Nat King Cole compilation album that she used to break out over the holidays and this was one of the songs on it.

UnKindness’s latest release of a beautiful country cottage with large glass windows and door plus snowy roof gave me inspiration for the rest of the scene above.  Click on the picture for a larger version.

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.

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?

“I beg your pardon I never promised you a rose garden,
Along with the sunshine there’s gotta be a little rain sometime.”  ~ Martina Mcbride

Except here in SL, you can have a rose garden! This is the “Rose Garden Collection” gacha set from Thaino Designs and very pretty it is, too.

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.

Looking through the key, we find 2 Rares and 14 Commons in this gorgeous set, all at low Land Impact so it’s not too prim expensive to build up a really nice garden set. Some of this could be used as interior design, also, and those kittens in a basket would be great anywhere, extreme cuteness 🙂
