Queen Corgi’s Kitchen

with 10 comments

 

We all know that Queen Elizabeth II keeps corgi dogs, she’s very fond of them.  When I see a corgi, I always make that connection and I picture a troupe of corgi dogs trotting along merrily by the side of the Queen as she goes for a walk.  So, here’s my fantasy about one of the Queen’s royal dogs who’s lucky enough to have her own kitchen!

Gold, always believe in your soul

with 4 comments

“Gold
Always believe in your soul
You’ve got the power to know
You’re indestructible, always believe in, ‘cos you are Gold” ~ Spandau Ballet

Couldn’t have said it better myself!  Your soul thinks and acts much better than your ego and conditionings. It loves you alone and considers humanity as part of itself in one contiguous whole. Beautiful.  Another reason to consider that if you hurt somebody, you’re hurting yourself and if you help somebody by a little act of love you’re moving on the Universal level with faith and maturity.

Because it’s so cold here and I’m thinking of spring!

The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.” William Wordsworth

Too much Turkey?

Have we eaten too much turkey?  Feeling over full?  Why not take a leaf out of these little chaps’ book and do some exercise.  How about a sleigh ride or a walk or even a fabulous snowy hot tub session, the choice is yours.

Hygge Hangout

with 4 comments

We’ve got the pale yellow skies of winter with a sprinkling of snow today! But you can be extra cosy in this beautiful and practical new cabin by KraftWork. It’s from the Hygge Set which is currently at Uber.

There’s a couple of ways of approaching the word, Hygge. It’s a Danish word which attempts to encapsulate the feeling of cosiness as being something charming or special. You can’t buy a Hygge living room in real life because the Danish see it as an emotional state rather than anything material. It also describes our ability to recognise and enjoy the current moment, and to indulge into the art of creating intimacy in a room. In other words, it’s creating a feeling of cosiness and knowing when you’ve got there!

I really enjoyed decorating this cabin by Kraftwork, and have used it in several posts now. What I like about it is the style and the practicality. I think we can go over the top with Scandi Design until it loses the sense of being useful. But this cabin has a flow-through ethic which means the two rooms can be used for either bedroom or living room, whatever you desire. The chimneys are well observed with a great smoke effect and there’s a couple of blazing fires – indoors and out. The outdoorsy fire extends the living space, you could set up a breakfast table and chairs here and be relatively comfortable, given the time of year. The flooring is a warm wood and the walls also are a warm coloured render. All these features add to the Hygge feeling of warmth and cosiness.

Fireside Gold

with 8 comments

I do think that gold suits a fireplace so well, or just something golden around it like a grate or an ornament or a picture frame.  Combined with the glowing flames the result is so warm.  Even though we’re in a virtual world, the feelings of warmth and contentment can still be successfully created if we use a bit of imagination.

Tales of the Riverbank

with 17 comments

 

“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.
