Serene Corner

with 2 comments

 

More from The Boardwalk designers today, and I’ve made a cosy corner that is also quite restful. It’s really interesting to see what sort of effect you can get from décor without the warmth of a fireplace. There are tonal colours from both the cold and warm palette but they all blend in well as they are not really strong. Background colours of soft grey and warm wood lend themselves to bronze accessories.

*~*~*

Here’s details of the Home & Garden products I used in the scene today:-

Sponsors:- The Boardwalk Event, Adorably Strange Wares, Theory, Plastik, KraftWork, Petit Chat
Others:- Apple Fall, JIAN
Events: – The Boardwalk Event, The Chapter Four

Zerkalo – Wheels on Fire

with 4 comments

Zerkalo - Wheel Set - Full

“If your mem’ry serves you well
We were goin’ to meet again and wait
So I’m goin’ to unpack all my things
And sit before it gets too late
No man alive will come to you
With another tale to tell
And you know that we shall meet again
If your mem’ry serves you well
This wheel’s on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode !”   # Bob Dylan

Well, hopefully not this excellent “Wheel” lounge set from Zerkalo!  You can pick this up from the March edition of The Mens Dept which runs until the end of the month. There’s a choice of three cushion colours – red, green and blue. PG and Adult versions.

Pieces are:

Sofa – LI 6 with 12 sits/12 cuddles/ 16 intimate poses in the Adult version

Chair – LI 2 with 5 sits/3 cuddles and 10 intimate poses in the Adult version

Stool – LI 2 with 5 sits/3 cuddles and 10 intimate poses in the Adult version

Table – LI 1

Tyres Decor – LI 2

Here’s a close up to show off the excellent texturing. I put this set in the garage which leads down to a lake and boat dock but it would go in a number of places, least of all the man-shed lol

Other pieces were from Zerkalo sets – “Coffee on the Porch” – an extremely useful set of furniture and decor which I never put away entirely, “California” – wall hanging, signs and decor, “Chess” – named after major chess tournament combatants – essential decor for lounges! Wood pile and crate also Zerkalo.

Dog is from a Half-Deer gacha (you can pick up similar on MP) – Shiba Inu sleepy

Here’s one of the cuddle animations which are rather romantic. Designer, Anaïs, has a gift for picking the right animations for each set of furniture. The dog was so comfortable she never stirred!

RFL Home & Garden Expo 2016 – Sahi Designs, aKa, Spargel & Shine, meadowWorks

with one comment

The RFL Home & Garden Expo 2016 will open to the general public on February 14th and runs to March 6th. It’s the largest and longest running event dedicated to Home & Garden in Second Life™ and raises funds for Relay For Life – The American Cancer Society. Read more about it on their extensive website.  As you can imagine, there’s all sorts of exhibitors from well known brands to up and coming designers, hobbyists and professional merchants. Each exhibitor is required to release two brand new 100% donation items and there’s also a wonderful 50% donation gacha section and even a special hunt!

The Expo is now open!  But don’t worry if you can’t get in at first, you’ve got plenty of time to visit all the sims. Here’s an excellent shopping list by Wendz Tempest showing all the slurls to all the Designers on all the Sims – can’t get better than that.

As Pam asked for some furniture today, well I have some amongst other things!

Sahi Designs – well I couldn’t resist this beautiful tropical themed “Hawaiian Hideaway Hammock” set, it’s one of the 100% Donation items.

It’s texture change for various themes such as Caribbean/Maldives and you can  change hammock, raft and tube and hammock wooden attachment to palm tree. Other options are Set Access, Adjust and Swap. Lots of animations for singles, friends, cuddles, kisses, massages and naughty!

Here’s one of Sahi Designs new releases – the “Winchester Lodge Living Room”. It’s a low prim set packed with animations in the chair and sofa. I think this would please both ladies and gents as far as decor goes and be a diplomatic set for couples!

For example… sofa n chairs… texture change for 5 options LI3   LI5,  deer head  LI3,  fireplace LI 9 on/off flames effect,  gunrack LI 7,  chandelier LI 3,   Mesa Rug has 6 texture options.  Lots of animations as for Hawaiian Hideaway Hammock.

Other 100% donation items are a matching shabby white carved wood mirror at LI 3,  and a set of very useful 7 floral rugs at 1 LI each. I photographed just one of them but they’ll all go with the house, according to what wall colours you choose.

meadowWorks – Garvie’s got some amazing pieces for us!

These are all 100% Donation items – firstly, the “Rice Paper Swans”. There are 2 versions in the box. Two swans linked to a prim with a rotation script in it (pretty fancy scripting ) and a single swan. But they are all Copy/Modify so Garvie suggests you drag out dozens and dozens and dozens to light up your life on water or land.

“Rice paper Lanterns” in lots of colours! Lanterns are a symbol of hope, and wish lanterns in particular are a sort of material representation of a kind of prayer (or wish). There are 5 colours: pink, purple, blue, peach, and yellow, 3 sizes S,M,L and 2 versions rotating (R) and not, so that’s 30 lanterns to sprinkle around.

The statue called “Hope” which is inspired by post Emily Dickinson

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

Garvie says, “I sculpted/assembled this piece “Hope” in January this year, and sold it at a different event (The Chapter Four), but since i never did get around to setting it for sale after the event ended, and all the sims at HGE just happen to be named “Hope” as well, I’ve decided to recycle/reissue it as a donation item. ”

And just for a bit of daftness, try meadowWorks gacha – the “Yoga Frogs!”.  Adorable, green, health conscious lil amphibian friends for ponds and lawns.  Here’s four of them practising in the garden!
