Tasty!

with 13 comments

Gabriel: That gal from the Beeb looks tasty…
Pooper: Those tartlets look tasty…

It was the beginning of another boiling hot summer’s day in Londinium City and Gabriel had finished setting up the Home & Garden scene ready for the photographer. It was all about Fancy Decor’s latest set and it was to be given top billing in the March edition of the prestigious H&G4U magazine.  Not surprising, since it was an accomplished buffet set that dispensed food and drink to guests and was highly suitable for celebratory occasions. He sat down on [Circa]’s Moroccan ottoman, and kicked off his boots.  It was just the right height for a comfortable lounge around, and that wasn’t the only piece he’d used from them. The room was full with [Circa]’s Syndicate Sunday bargain plants, just the way he liked it, and a Moroccan floor lamp from 22769 only added to the sultry theme.

Switching on the stylish Tartessos Arts television set, a very reasonably priced box of tricks, he clicked to the News Channel from the BBBC and fell into a dream as Harriet the reporter talked about products from the latest Equal10 Event.  Now she was tasty!  The efficacy of said products quite passed him by.

Meanwhile, Pooper the puppy had climbed up onto the floating coffee table, knocked off the champagne flutes, and was eyeing up the tartlet tray whilst his master’s attention was fully occupied. His thoughts were of equal tastiness.  We can only hope the photographer gets there in time to remove the pup and restore order because Gabriel is pretty useless at this point!

Fondue for you!

with 4 comments

*click on the picture for a larger version

During the 18th century the origin of fondue began in Switzerland as a way to use aged cheeses and breads to feed families who had limited access to fresh foods during the winter time. Producers of cheese and bread saw their busy season was during the warm months and that the food had to be saved by villagers to be used through the cold winter months. As the cheese would age and the breads became stale it became more difficult to eat. The local villagers found that if they heated the cheese with wines, garlic, and herbs they could dip their stale bread which would soften when dipped into the flavourful cheese mixture. This way of cooking together over one pot and eating by a warm cosy fire became a Swiss winter tradition known as fondue. The word fondue comes from the French word, ‘fondre’, which means ‘to melt’ and has since then been used to reference many other types of fondue for meats, chicken, seafood, and even chocolate.

The Elm Glen

with 2 comments

 

“Oh the oak and the ash, and the bonny ivy tree,
They flourish at home in my own country” ~ From The North Country Maid, a traditional British folk song

A lot of traditional British folks tunes are about the landscape and a longing for the countryside they called home, made more poignant when people started to move to the major towns and cities at the time of the Industrial Revolution. The scene I’ve made today is more like my pa’s traditional homeland would be – one of heather and gorse, rocky waterfalls, forest and glen. The soft tones of light and colour are often what it is like during the misty dawn and early morning and it is altogether enchanting – except for the midges!

Blue is the colour

with 7 comments

“I have a blue house with a blue window
Blue is the colour of all that I wear
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue
Blue are the people here that walk around
Blue like my Corvette, it’s in and outside
Blue are the words I say and what I think
Blue are the feelings that live inside me” ~ Blue (Da Ba Dee) Eiffel 65

Although the lyrics maybe a wee bit sombre, the actual song is upbeat and enjoyable.  And I think that’s one of the diverse things about the colour blue. On the one hand it’s a great colour for interior design because it’s quite restful, intuitive and nourishing – it’s the colour of the sea and the sky after all – and on the other hand the emotion of ‘having the blues’ is also associated with the colour. What a dichotomy!

My pal Exis did a blue interior this week and so I thought I’d have a go, too. Not entirely blue, I admit, but it’s amazing what you can do with toning and contrast colours. It reminds me of peacock feathers. The JIAN Betta tank must get a special mention because it has such a low Land Impact and you can rez as many animated fish as will fit in the tank – a really good addition to your lounge which will add some life and colour.
