Perfect Love Castes Out Fear

with 4 comments

My inspiration for today’s picture originates in the quote on the wallart. It’s a biblical quote from John 4:18 that can be applied to a lot of situations. In this case, I was thinking of interracial marriage. Have you ever noticed that the children born from these unions can be extremely beautiful? Maybe its compensation for the strife the marriages sometimes cause amongst relatives and friends. My parents came from two different countries so I have a bit of experience on this subject.

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 🙂

What a Way to make a Living!

with 4 comments

 

A super luxurious way to make a living!  This scene is a combo of two great sets from unKindness, the first is currently at FaMESHed and that’s the Lady Boss Conference set and the second is the 9 to 5 gacha which was shown recently at the Epiphany Event.  The conference set also includes a truly massive long table, built along the same lines at the short which I’ve used in the scene, and I suppose you’d use that at much bigger functions.  One of the nice things about this set are the hanging lights which look really pearly and posh, they do fit in with the theme of it being more apt for the Lady Boss.  I can’t really see the guys residing on a pink pouffe and retaining their street credibility *laughs*

So anyways, the conference has yet to start and the dalmatian is not impressed with it all, she’s having a kip on the day bed whilst the cheeky chihuahua chap is waiting for the phone to ring so he can inform his mistress.  Both dogs have been very good at avoiding the cake that’s resting precariously on the edge of the table but unless somebody turns up soon, it won’t last 🙂

The room is an upstairs one in a brand new release by Newchurch, called the Noelle Petit Manor, and I’ll be blogging that in much more detail later on this week.  It’s from the subscription Event,  Builder’s Box. which concentrates in this edition on all sorts of Christmas prefabs and buildings.  I will say that the Manor here is suitably splendid and has decorations and snowy accoutrements galore.

The Art of Tea

with 6 comments

 

What a difference a day makes, especially when the Labs have replaced a vital piece of hardware which meant folks couldn’t log in yesterday!

Today, I felt inspired by this great new gacha from unKindness – it’s the Tea Time Delight gacha, presently at Whimsical.  It has a whopping 18 pieces, 2 of which are Rares, all to do with drinking tea and eating cup cakes. Other cutlery  and quail’s egg pieces are from .Shi, part of 5 sets available at the new round of Shiny Shabby.  These pieces were so beautiful I thought they deserved to be in an art gallery.

Now tell me you don’t want a cuppa and cake after that!

Here’s the pieces I used in detail:-

.Shi – Vintage Flatwear teaspoon and cake fork in bronze
.Shi – Quail Egg Display with Lights
(both from the Noir Minimalist Set, currently at Shiny Shabby)

unKindness – Tea Time Delights gacha, currently at Whimsical

KraftWork
Fontainebleau – Lips Wall Hanging
Simone Spotlight
KraftWork Wall System – Geometric
(all at the Mainstore)
