Cottage Garden

with 8 comments

 

As I’ve said before, it’s not easy to create an English Cottage garden virtually and make it look realistic, this is the best I’ve done so far. It has that seemingly carefree look (which is anything but) where you’ve just scattered wild flower and grass seeds at the beginning of the season, together with a few well chosen shrubs… and it’s all come to fruition.

The beautiful stone cottage is by Galland Homes and you’ll find it at the 7th Anniversary edition of FaMESHed, don’t forget to pick up all the gifts when you visit! Stonehill Cottage has a deep stone base so will be able to go into various hilly landscapes in addition to flat ground as here. Downstairs is an open floor set-up with a welcoming old style stone fireplace with chimney going up the side of the house. There’s wooden beams, plaster walls, and stairs that lead up to an open plan bedroom. The cottage would be suitable in a modern country style community and could also double as a house or tavern within a role-play setting. Well worth checking out the DEMO at FaMESHed.

The garden wall and gate are just perfect for the stone cottage and these are quite the nicest landscaping pieces I’ve seen in this genre so far this year, they are by Serenity Style. Also featuring Raindale’s brilliant Riverbreak gacha for 6º Republic and although I’ve put this in the garden it could go anywhere by a river, in a forest or wherever you want it.

Primavera

with 3 comments

 

Primavera ~ by the great Santana from their album Supernatural (1999)

“Lluvia de sol
Como Una Bendicion
La vida renace con su luz
La primavera ya llego
Todo es asi
Regreso a la raiz
Tiempo de inquieta juventud
En primavera ya

La tierra negra se vuelve verde
Y las montanas y el desierto
Un bello jardin”

“The Sun showers a Blessing
Life is reborn with its light
Spring is here
Everything is like this
Back to the roots
the time of unquiet youth
In Spring already

The black Earth becomes green
and the mountains and the desert,
A beautiful garden.”

Look out behind you, Harry!

Look out, Harry, the Serpent of Slytherin’s creeping up on you! Good job you’ve got that wand handy 🙂

The Serpent of Slytherin was a female Basilisk that was placed by Salazar Slytherin as the only resident of the Chamber of Secrets at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The Basilisk could only be controlled by the Heir of Slytherin, Tom Riddle. That meant that despite her being a Snake, other Parselmouths (such as Harry Potter) had no control over her, though they still could understand her. Aragog (a rare acromantula) was accused of being the monster of the chamber by Tom Riddle which sent Hagrid to Azkaban; his name was later cleared and he was allowed back in Hogwarts.

Apparel
Harry’s wearing the Nishi Uniform for Belleza Jake, currently at The World of Magic Event. This comes with a texture change HUD for various parts including jumper, pants, robe and tie. Click on the shoulder to reveal a robe! There’s also a version that is sans pants.
The uniform has versions for Gianni and Jake. Includes uniform for girls as well – versions are Freya, Isis and Lara – this has the same robe and top but instead of pants you get the skirt.

Hair is by Dura – **Dura-Boy**27 (Dark Brown) resize

Shoes are by A&D – Shoes -Stuttgart- Mesh v2 SLINK and they have a wide range of mesh body options – A&D are one of the best mesh body coverage merchants for men’s clothing

Harry’s Shape is mine (sorry!) and it’s for the avatar head with the Belleza Jake Mesh Body because quite honestly I find the avatar head way easier to adjust than mesh heads and after hours spent fiddling with those blighters I’ve given up the will to live.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂
