Indoor Outdoor Living

Mostly outdoors! I’m loving this new house by also Known as, it could serve as a commercial store if you wanted to use it like that, it’s that adaptable. I’m also longing for summer – as you can see by the windlight I’ve chosen – more snow is forecast for our part of the country… thumbs down 🙂

Today, I’m showcasing a number of products that will be coming up soon at the Illuminate Event on March 18th. Illuminate is the first monthly Home & Garden specific Event, there’s no fashion in it. It’s run by ULTRA Events and LTD, and there’s some really lovely products already. With the Easter festival happening soon, some of the designers are taking inspiration from that.


Here’s the Home & Garden products I’ve used today in detail:-

Illuminate Event – from March 18th Noon SLT

1. Funny Eggs by MAD MATCH – this is the joined set and they are LI 2 at the size I’ve used. They have a good resizer and also have individual eggs.
MAD MATCH is a “brand new brand” and a tiny new part of the SL® universe (100 % original mesh).

2. ACORN – gorgeous patchwork pouf sets by designer, Lulu, in natural and pastel colours 3 per set, LI 2 each. Also the Violin is ACORN, comes with and without hearts, LI 1 each.

Beautiful work at low Land Impact from this designer.  Link will take you to the FB page.
.BASIL. Kennedy Umbrella Stand – LI 1
.BASIL. Kennedy Mudroom – LI 4

4. Dahlia – Malta Set
Dahlia – Malta – Mirror – Copper – LI 1
Dahlia – Malta – Accent Table – Copper – LI 1
Dahlia – Malta – Peonies – Warm – LI 1
This is a beautiful set with gold, copper and silver versions of the furniture and Cool and Warm colours of peonies in vase

5. Shutter Field/Decor Junction – a well established collaboration. This is the Kincaid Set, with MM and MF versions plus the Floating Dock which I shoved rather unceremoniously into the stone surround! SF/DJ often produce beautifully animated MM versions of their products, not so many designers cover this market and it’s a pleasure not to have to alter the animations.
DJ / SF Floating Dock – LI 9 – Copy/Modify – contains male and female sits, dives (into the water), and a nice cuddles Menu.
DJ / SF Kincaid Set – LI 8 – with male and female sits, cuddles and activities Menus.

6. also Known as
The fabulous BarCode Villa!
The Barcode is built as a villa, but will work well as one or more stores as well. The houses has five sections, three fo them with upper floors, the two on the sides have roof terraces. The full footprint is 25*50 meters including the outdoor paving, which can be unlinked should you prefer to do that. Two versions of the house are included – one with an animated bathtub for use as a home – Land Impact will be 112 and one without if you’re using the BarCode Villa as a commercial property – Land Impact will 120. The Barcode has Kool doors, which can be configured by the owner.

Little Branch, currently at FaMESHed
Poplar Tree – beautiful 4-seasons gently animated tree. Pack includes fluffy grass, hills for summer and winter, a 2 LI version of the Poplar Tree, the higher LI version, animated Snakeweed for summer. I had the tree on the ‘spring’ setting and at that size it was LI 9.

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.

A Very Posh Picnic

with 8 comments


For when you want to dine out in style! And it’s not just for the birds and the fairies but it’s for everyone to enjoy. I’m featuring sets from Fancy Decor, Little Branch and unKindness today.

All the splendidly comfortable furniture is from the Cozy Day set by unKindness and that’s currently at Collabor88. There’s a lot of variations in this squeezable set which is for singles and couples to lounge around on nicely. Fancy Decor came up with the Hors d’oeuvre Silver Collection which will be shortly available at March Arcade. I’m showing most of it here but there are two additional pieces of buffet tables with fancy glass and fretwork panels at the front. They are thoughtfully provided by designer, Jake, for those of us who prefer to eat indoors! The gorgeous flowers are a Hello Tuesday bargain by Little Branch – all sorts of Bouton ‘dor flower fields which are a speciality of theirs. The bargain will last until Sunday 4th March and then they’ll be on Marketplace and at the Mainstore.

The diners are various birdies from TLC Home Collection, all animated and some of them will even sing. TLC make the best birds in SL® if you ask me! Then there’s a couple of very cute fairies who have flown in from Serenity Style and these were in December Lootbox.

Modern Love

with 16 comments

Before I start this post, I want to leave a message for sponsors and my blogging friends.  I’ll be offline for the next fortnight and back on Monday, February 26th. I’m having a long awaited upper spinal operation which should hopefully reduce pain levels and give me extra movement as well as clearer vision.  It’s not a huge operation but it will require recovery time.   It makes use of modern surgery skills, too, for which I am very grateful!  Sorry, my friends, I won’t be able to ‘like’ posts or make my quirky comments for that couple of weeks.  ❤


There are quite a few superb items out at the moment which have that modern furniture vibe.  I’ve combined three of my current favourites in the scene today.

The building is by unKindness, it’s called Modern Serenity and it’s in the latest Builder’s Box subscription.  This really is a beauty of a house and I’ve included a couple of extra close-ups so you can see how the light will fall inside the building.

There are two main furniture sets here.  The beautiful dressing table/vanity set is by Granola. and you get that in gacha form including texture option HUDs.  Simply lots of class and lots of pastel colour tones – I was using white, peach and pale gold metals.

The other furniture set is a collaboration by Fancy Decor and Commoner called The Modine Collection.  This is gorgeous, there’s a lot of pieces including cushion texture options and you’ll be able to mix n match to your heart’s content!


Lots of long, narrow windows give a feeling of calm and privacy and yet it’s relatively light for all those dark grey concrete tones.  The front door has a good entrance porch and it leads to the large room for open living.


Here’s the Home & Garden products I used today, in detail:-

Underneath the Mango Tree

leave a comment »


“Underneath the Mango Tree
Me honey and me can watch for the moon
Underneath the Mango Tree
Me honey and me make boolooloop soon” ~ Cibelle

I remember this song from the James Bond film, Dr No.  It was ‘sung’ by Honey Rider when she emerged dripping from the sea  in what was a very racy bikini for those days. She’d been hunting for shells and pearls. Whenever I see or hear of a mango tree, this daft song comes into my head – go figure 🙂

The scene features a new beach hut by Galland Homes which is very versatile because you could put it facing the sea like the above or further up on the land proper.  There’s plenty of room to furnish the inner room and also down on the deck which I’m using as a mini pontoon here.

The trees are by Little Branch.  The Avocado and the Mango.  I’ve included some close-up shots of these because they are so wonderfully made with plenty of leafy branches and fruits in the spring/summer versions.





Here’s the Home & Garden products I used, in detail:-

Here’s hoping your weekend’s a good one!  Cheers, m’dears 🙂


A Bedroom for the Boys

with 4 comments


When I opened the new Builder’s Box, not only was it jammed packed with great architecture but it also gave me a lot of inspiration for blogging.  This wondrous skybox belongs to KraftWork and it’s one of the most original concepts I’ve seen.  I suppose it’s a skateboard park crossed comfortably with an Industrial style skybox. Hey Presto – the Shred Flat is born!  Don’t forget to click on the picture to see the full sized version.

With all the pretty bedrooms for girls around right now, I thought I’d do one for the boys.  A lot of  these products have magically matched up with the right tones. This especially applies to also Known as‘s Farmer’s Retreat Bed and matching furniture.  It gives a feeling of solidness combined with comfort and style.  I love it!  Part of Fancy Decor‘s Jansen set – namely that swivel chair matched up remarkably well.  It does come in a variety of other colours, white would have been nice, too.  With other pieces from 22769, [ zerkalo ] and Serenity Style we were soon cooking.  Add some plants and animals – every flat should have a Jack Russell – and we’re there.

Here’s some more photos of the Shred Flat empty – so you can get an idea of what to do with it in the way of decorating.  This is the skateboard section and I was half thinking to make this the dining area/lounge – I bet you lot have other ideas.

Here’s the decorated back wall with a walk down steps area – bathroom perhaps?  Those graffiti walls are so striking, no need for any Wall Art this end of the skybox.

The opposite end of the skybox now, you’ve got some nice Industrial windows with added light panes, a shabby brick wall and also a set of spray cans on the floor.  Now if you can use the Edit panel you can select just those cans and move them around. It’s all modify so why not.

And here we’re looking through one of those windows from the outside of the skybox to the wall opposite where there’s some more of that fabulous wall art, skateboard inspired naturally 🙂

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 🙂

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.  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.  These things happen like magic – it’s a magical scene, after all 🙂


Here’s the Home & Garden Products I used in detail:-

KraftWork + HERA Magical Orbs – Gold Pose 1 – LI 53 (meant to be held)
