Tales of the Riverbank

“No animal, according to the rules of animal etiquette, is ever expected to do anything strenuous, or heroic, or even moderately active during the off-season of winter.”  Kenneth Grahame from “Wind in the Willows”

As a consequence of this quote, the otters and their friends have taken over my bathroom – the cheeky lot!

Please click on the picture for a huge version.

*~*~*

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

TLC Home Collection – Animated river scenery FatPack, currently at ULTRA.  The FatPack contains otter pond with reeds, rock surround and animated water. I took this apart to do the scene. The pack also contains the Scandinavian Rudd – you get a pair of these that rotate both clockwise and anticlockwise, the Osprey and the River Otter. It’s a huge pack. There are animated otters (wet and dry) standing, swimming and upright – instructions included for the swimming otter to set the radius. The Osprey is presented on his fishing perch and a flapping fish under his claws and you can take this set-up apart in case you want to put the Osprey elsewhere.

Galland Homes, currently at ULTRA Event
Savannah Bath Vanity by Galland Homes – LI 9 – taps will run with water (on/off via touch). Permissions are Copy/Modify. Beautiful copper bowls and faucet. Animations include Rinse Hair, Brush Teeth, Wash and Shave – excellent!

KraftWork Wall System – Classic – 1 LI each and I had the white and the checkers patterns showing. Beautiful and versatile panels with 12 texture options for the central panels. I had the main panel showing only but underneath there’s a secondary smaller panel.

Fancy Decor: Serpentine Candlesticks
Special for Fifty Linden Friday and throughout the weekend!
They are 1 LI each and you get gold and silver versions, both with white and black candles. They rez ready lit but if you copy and drag to get another one you’ll need to relight the original.

From MudHoney Cooper bathroom accessories pack
This is my favourite pack for the bathroom and I’ve used the items over and over again, so well worth the lindens!
MudHoney Cooper His Supplies – LI 2
MudHoney Cooper Toothbrush Cup – LI 1
MudHoney Cooper Soap Dish – LI 1
MudHoney Cooper Shampoos – LI 1
MudHoney Cooper Bath Towels – LI 1
MudHoney Cooper Plant – LI 1

Cheeky Pea – :CP: Champagne Mirror – LI 1 – and this is from the Champagne Flute Chair set which is in the January Deco(c)rate – “Champagne Dreams”. It’s well worth getting even at the non discounted price.

MudHoney – Audrey Vase Large and Small versions – from the Audrey Entry Set in the January Deco(c)rate again – 1 LI each and they come from another gorgeous set which includes 6 colour versions of Ottoman, mirror, sconce in 3 metals, portrait frame and 3 colour versions of  console along with the vases.

Dust Bunny – hoya plant – LI 2

Apple Fall – Porthole Mirror – LI 2 – turned on its side and used as a dish here!

From Shiny Shabby new round
!gO! – Be mine – Izzy – pretty little doll with a Valentines/Hearts theme from !gO!’s gacha of the same name – every one of them a winner!

Concept} – 08. Porcelain Vase – greenish and Concept} 07. Porcelain dish C – these come from the elegant Bordeaux/Orangerie gacha in which Pep collaborated with Jojo Deed – L$80 per Play – watch your lindens on this one!

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

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)

Black Tea Tray & Homage to Tea design – Moz

 

 

 

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

Not such an old door from 22769 ~ [Bauwerk]

22769 - Old Door Gaderobe - entire set

A brand new round of Shiny Shabby opened on January 20th and I wandered around it yesterday – with no lag thanks to my new computer – amazing! On until February 14th, there’s lots of goodies to view and purchase including this great set from our friends 22769 ~ [Bauwerk].  It’s called the “Old Door Gaderobe” set and can be purchased as separate pieces as well as the entire set.

Although I was using the set in a relatively modern house, the “Old Door Gaderobe” set didn’t look at all out of place. So yes, it’s that Shiny Shabby styling but it can be used in a number of other styled settings. All pieces are 100% Original Mesh and have Permissions of Copy/Modify so if you wanted, you could tint them to match a particular room. Place the Old Door Gaberobe itself against a wall and you’ve got a false door with matching console table. It’s clever!

Here’s some close-ups to show the quality of the texturing. Land impact is 3.

The fabulous Coat Chair is another 3 LI and it has 8 single sit animations. These poses are made by 22769 ~ [Bauwerk] and so you won’t be finding them elsewhere. Uniqueness makes for extra quality, don’t you think?

Here’s me, lazing around as usual – and I’ve found the perfect pose to enjoy thinking time in the sun! (Apparel by Cold Ash and hair by No_Match).

The Bird Cage Floor Lamp has a Land Impact of 4. The bulb has a control light intensity script and you can set it anywhere from 0.1 (barely there) to a whopping 1.0 (light show). The spread of light is useful in various settings and for pictures it can add an extra light source which is controllable to a large extent.

Here’s a close-up of the Bird Cage Floor Lamp and I had this on 0.3 light intensity. I was thinking that you could stick a bird inside the cage or even sitting on it, if you wanted.

Beautiful Vintage Storage Boxes with a Land Impact of 3. Very useful decorative piece, here. (Rug from N4RS – ONE Rug – Lofted Wool).

[Zerkalo] – Shiny Shabby Christmas Tree

leave a comment »

zerkalo_Shiny Shabby Christmas Tree_full

An absolutely gorgeous pine Christmas Tree by [Zerkalo] and you can pick this up at December Shiny Shabby Event which has just started!

The ‘Shiny Shabby Christmas Tree’ has a Land Impact of 9 and Permissions of Copy/Modify. It’s at quite a substantial size already so won’t need increasing.  I think this is the most realistic tree I’ve seen this year, you need to see it to appreciate the work that’s gone into this piece.  Each pine frond is faithfully reproduced, 3 dimensional and stunning.

Decorated with white, pearly bulbs, silver star and white satin ribbon with a tree cloth around the trunk, the tree is a real statement piece, especially if mixed with some of [Zerkalo]’s white furniture, of which there has been a lot recently.  I hope Daniel and Anais take a well earned break over Christmas 🙂
