Shades of Lilac

with 6 comments

 

My object today was to create a peaceful room based on the colour white, so most of the products here are actually white. However, after I’d fiddled around with various Windlight settings I came up with this beautiful lilac wash which is rather pleasing and calm and created the atmosphere I was after.

The scene is set on the ground floor of Galland Homes “Cape Hatteras” and the light on the floor is reflected from the mass of windows at the front.  I think this is one of my favourite virtual homes of all time because not only do you get airy upper balconies and a comfortable porch back and front on the ground floor, but the amount of windows overall is nigh on perfect for calm and light within the house. The flooring is equally pleasing with a good mix of tiling and wooden floorboards. Cape Hatteras back in RL is the name of a thin, broken  strand of islands off the coast of North Carolina which have a humid, subtropical climate and can be rather turbulent and subject to storm damage. No doubt Designer Rob Galland got his inspiration from the sort of colonial homes that would manage well in that weather.

 

*~*

I’m also featuring a posh new glass console set by Fancy Decor which includes pictures and you’ll find at Collabor88, a stunning fireplace and mirror set in three colour options by unKindness at April FaMESHed and a beautiful daybed set with matching chamomile accessories by Granola. and that’s also at FaMESHed.

*~*

There’s an interesting tale about the origin of lilacs and it’s from Greek mythology.  It revolves around the God Pan, the lord of forests and fields, and at one time he was madly in love with a nymph named Syringa. Pan could be rather an overwhelming God and one day he chased after Syringa through the forest quite frightening her.  To disguise herself, she turned into a lilac shrub. To Pan’s surprise, he could not find Syringa on that occasion, but he did find the shrub. Because a lilac shrub consists of hollow reeds, he cut the reeds and created the first pan pipe. The scientific name for lilac is Syringa vulgaris, and the name is derived from the Greek word “syrinks” which means pipe.

Lilac meanings vary throughout different cultures and time periods.

  • The Celts regarded the lilac as “magical” due to its incredibly intoxicating fragrance.
  • During the Victorian Age, the giving of a lilac was meant to be a reminder of an old love. In fact, widows were often seen wearing lilacs during this period.
  • In Russia, holding a sprig of lilac over the newborn would bring wisdom.
  • In the United States, the lilac is the official state flower of New Hampshire and represents the ‘hardy’ nature of its people.

Everything stops for tea

with 3 comments

 

April Syndicate Sunday has some wonderful bargains you won’t want to miss. Harvest Moon’s offer is for an English style cottage surrounded by a beautiful cottage garden. It contains typical flowers such as hollyhocks, petunia and Canterbury bells and you even get butterflies!

The cottage garden is one that country folks aspire to but despite its carefree appearance, it’s artfully arranged and takes a lot of looking after. Nearly every garden will have its resident robins who will enthusiastically defend their territories and clear up a lot of garden pests in the process. There will also be some sort of sitting area so the fortunate residents can take tea in the afternoons/mornings/whenever. Yes, the English are addicted to their tea and cakes, it’s such a pleasant ritual though!

The furniture set I added to the scene really matches the cottage so well, it’d be a shame not to purchase both of them. Although the Adirondack style is more NE New York, it’s been adopted all over and I notice that my RL neighbours have just this sort of set they keep in their garden shed over winter and break out in the spring. It’s surprisingly adaptable. There are 3 sets available by [CIRCA] in different woods.

Syndicate Sunday is a mainstore discount shopping event that runs once a month. This month it’s on from April 7th to April 14th. All items are only L$69 each! Check out the website for more details.

Primavera

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.”

Blooming Marvellous

“Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy pear tree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.” – Gerard Manley Hopkins

Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889) is considered to be one of the greatest poets of the Victorian era. However, because his style was so radically different from that of his contemporaries, his best poems were not accepted for publication during his lifetime, and his achievement was not fully recognized until after World War I.
