Phen & Moz do Christmas Breakfast

with 18 comments

*~*~*

I wanted to do a Holiday collaboration with my fellow blogger and pal, Phen.  So, after much fiddling about on the Home & Garden front, here’s our idea of what Christmas breakfast turned out to be in our Glam Kitchen. You’ll be able to see Phen’s version on her blog.

Phen’s looking after the turkey, it should be cooked by dinnertime, that’s if the turkeys let her. After all they think she’s cooking one of their friends but said bird actually came from the supermarket!  Moz is trying to eat his fry-up but the animals have their eyes on it, too, no wonder he’s looking annoyed, there’s nothing worse than a dog slobbering over your breakfast 🙂

We hope you had a laugh and enjoyed the scene as much as we did making it!

Wall Street

“Do the Wall Street shuffle
Hear the money rustle
Watch the greenbacks tumble
Feel the Sterling crumble

Oh, Mister Hughes
Did your money make you better?
Are you waiting for the hour
When you can screw me?
‘Cause you’re big enough to do the…
Wall Street Shuffle” ~ 10cc

LISTEN

Featuring the new collection from Fancy Decor for September’s Arcade Gacha Event.   “The Wall Street Shuffle” is a single by the British pop/rock band 10cc, released in 1974. The song originally appears on the band’s 1974 album Sheet Music. It was the most successful single to be released from the album, reaching No. 10 on the UK chart.  Thanks to my pal and fellow blogger, Starr, for gacha swapping where I got the wonderful howling wolf!

A Game of Two Halves

*~*~*

One of the nicest furniture sets at the latest round of The Arcade Event, “The Royce Collection” by Fancy Decor has a total of 17 pieces to collect. Every one of them is a little piece of art so even if you only have a few plays on the gacha, you’re bound to get a couple of gems.

My favourite piece here is the X Bench which is slightly Romanesque in style. You know, I’m not sure if I could put an overall style on this set but somehow, it all gels together in a most delightful way. My second favourite piece is the Royce Chandelier. Even when it’s not lit, the round bulbs give a pleasant glossy tone and the shape is a bit Art Deco to my eyes. And then I like this.. and I like that… you get the idea 🙂

I thought I’d try photographing the set in a fabulous partially open room, so I used part of the Songo Courtyard by Barnesworth Anubis. In front of the loggia, which you can’t see, is a pond which is surrounded by  formal paving, small flights of steps to the sides and clipped topiary shrubs. It’s walled on the remaining three sides and then you enter and leave by a gate at the end of this rectangular build. Quite primmy but well worth the effort.
