You don’t have to be mad… but it helps!

with 18 comments

 

Alice and the Mad Hatter have decided to break out the best china and have a tea party in the garden. Now prospective party goers don’t have to be mad… but it helps!  It’s a lovely sunny day and even the book trees have blossomed, with books of course.

There’s a game of chess happening but it’s not conventional rules.  The Dormouse is awake for once but he’s playing the rabbit who famously leaves early because he’s got somewhere else to go.  Phoenix Junior is flummoxed by the whole thing! He’s only interested in cake really.

 

Meanwhile, at the Cheshire Cat end of the table, the lazy daisy has at last woken up, which is just as well since his cuppa is going cold!  The cat’s got his paw on the situation 🙂

 

Alice is doing her best to look cute, while the Mad Hatter contemplates his half a cup of tea.  Maybe the Rainbow Phoenix has done a trick on it!

A feast in the Mountains

with 10 comments

 

It’s quite a European tradition on the weekend to take a picnic in the mountains, especially when it’s very hot elsewhere. Leave the baking beaches to the tourists and escape to a more temperate setting for an enjoyable family meal.

This beautifully made, original Mesh gacha set by Duvet Day called, “Alfresco in Italy” could be used in a number of settings including shaded areas and also more open gardens and terraces. It’s available at the current round of the Cosmopolitan Event. Here’s all the pieces in detail. There are one or two unexpected extras like the texture change HUD for the string lights.

Swanery

with 2 comments

 

I have some new additions to my menagerie – the Swan Family!  They are well spoiled, having their own “Enchanted Swans” lake.  So while I was cuddling the only cygnet in the world that doesn’t like water, I took some photos to show you.

All by TLC Home Collection, the lake is gorgeous and quite large at 20 by 15 metres. It does contain quite a lot though. As well as the lake, there is manicured lawns all around, pots of lavender and petunia, a nice two person seat in one corner and pink camellia (or they could be rambling roses) wrapping themselves around the architecture.  Two sides of the perimeter is walled with balustrade effect and two archways to enter with stone steps up to the lake.  You could put the lake on one side of a garden and allow the rest of the garden to be seen from the non-walled sides.  It’s just idyllic.

 

The “Swan Family” contains – a swan on nest with cygnets, swimming swan, swimming cygnet and swimming swan carrying cygnets on her/his back.  Now you can rez these and they will stand still for photographs *laughs* but you can also set them to swim within a certain square and also you can assign cygnets to particular swans by numbers.  The cygnets will then swim alongside their parent swan. It’s so cute! Instructions are included and it’s not difficult because even I could do it. Here are my swans actually swimming in formation for once.

 

This little chap likes sunbathing and who can blame him? Look at the detail on that stone wall and the camellias wrapped around that balustrade.  It’s really fine work.

Ragner’s Day Off

with 11 comments

*~*~*

I’m imagining Ragner the Viking on a day off. He’s gone on holiday to the Mediterranean and ransacked… errr rented a nice villa, to relax and keep out of trouble. *Laughs* alright, holidays in the Med were not invented back then but you know darn well that it’s all virtual fantasy, and I wanted to showcase a couple of things today.

Firstly, TLC Home Collection‘s “Humming Birds Bush”.  This is an exclusive at the current round of Cosmopolitan. I absolutely love it – not only do you get the hibiscus bush in its planter but also 3 humming birds that fly around sampling the flowers. This is Copy/Modify so you can unlink the birds… they do still flap their wings but they will stay in one place wherever you put them as the scripts have been destroyed when you unlinked.  Click on the planter and the flowers change colour in various warm colours. The planter is white to begin with, I modified it to go with the patio.

The house is by Nomad, and it’s in the March Deco(c)rate Home & Garden subscription box. You can still get this edition but it’s now twice the price at 3k lindens.  It’s a great house with striking colours and a turret at the back.  Lots of doors that will stay open for various photography shots and then close on touch. This is very useful!

*~*~*

Secondly, I’m wearing appliers by 7 Deadly s{K}ins. With the group gift this month, you have 400L to go and spend at the store. This is enough to buy one of the many applier sets, I was using “Fier” face applier in Caramel with beard V2 HB. The artistry on this is really nice and unique, the beard and the hairbase join up in a natural manner and it suited the hair I chose so well.  For the body applier, I chose Caramel Smooth this time and Ragner must have borrowed his wife’s shaver as there’s no body hair, he’s just smooth!  I wouldn’t like to say if she’ll be pleased or not. Both these appliers are OMEGA so I can use them with my CATWA Daniel Bento face and ADAM Mesh Body. It does take a while fiddling with everything but if you persevere you can get some wonderful looks.

The bench  is the “Park Bench Rainbow” by Chez Moi Furnitures, and this should be back at the mainstore by now, having been out at an Event. It’s texture change for some very pleasant pastel shades and has PG and Adult versions with lots of lovely animations and interactive stuff, such as Chez Moi is famous for.

Too much cake!

with 4 comments

 

Can you ever have too much cake?  Well, you have to give it a really good go!  This is our second round of cakes and the dog is already collapsed and so is Arrchie. Can I manage any more?  While I’m contemplating another portion of blueberry cake, the goose is eyeing up the mooncakes 🙂

A beautiful set of spring/summertime furniture by ::Newchurch:: that I adore, called  “Spring Party Dining Set”. Everything is so detailed, even the napkin rings have little leaf shapes on them. I appreciate the attention to detail and the fact that you can texture change the chairs, table mats and runner. There’s also some great animations in this set, that add to the humour of a spring party.  Pick up a copy of this set at the ON9 Event.

22769 ~ [Bauwerk]‘s set for March Arcade is called “Colors of Spring gacha” and I’ve got most of it out here. Fine work indeed, and perfect for a garden or forest setting. Lots of extras apart from the Hideaway that can be used in gardens and porches or indoors. That’s a direct landmark to the vendor on Arcade.
