Spring Romance

with 4 comments

 

“It was a lover and his lass,
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
That o’er the green corn-field did pass,
In the spring time, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring.”

~ William Shakespeare ~

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!

For the Birds

with 9 comments

 

The geese think this pool is exclusively for them.   Thanks, TLC Home Collection!

The Canada Goose is a large, wild species native to Arctic and temperate regions of North America. Its migration occasionally reaches North Europe, and it has been introduced to the UK, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile and the Falkland Islands. They are able to establish colonies in urban and cultivated areas with little trouble – so no wonder they have taken over the pool 🙂

In the background, I’m grateful for the shade of Little Branch’s latest offering – the Tulip Tree. It rezs instantly and has zero lag. There’s landscaping extras in the pack, see details below.

The Tulip Tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) is a vigorous deciduous tree with pleasing lobed leaves and green & orange tulip shaped flowers in summer. The leaves turn butter yellow in the autumn. It is a part of the Magnolia family. You’ll find these growing in Eastern North America. The tallest the tree will reach is 12 metres and it takes between 20 – 50 years to achieve this height. The Tulip Tree is low maintenance and generally pest and disease free which makes it a popular architectural and garden tree.

Fortunately, the geese are not interested in my brand new pool furniture by Granola. I really love this set, it’s so elegant and well made. The animations are thoughtful, too. You don’t always find that in furniture.

Lots of the décor, including the tea set and fruit bowl, is from a wonderful new gacha by 22769, and you’ll find that at The Arcade, if you can get in. If you like this set, it is exclusive to Arcade and will be retired afterwards, so get on the machine asap.

Conservatory

with 12 comments

 

A conservatory that’s anything but conservative!  One of the best I’ve seen, it’s made by designer, Benoit, of Duvet Day, who specialises in gacha sets.  Imagine how you’d feel if on the first Play you got that building 🙂   Although there’s lots of gorgeous items here, one of my all time favourites is the Mesh India Samyukta Lamp Cabinet which reminds me of my childhood. We used to have one just like that which was jealously guarded by mum who put all her spices into the drawers.  If us boys were caught around playing with the drawers which was kinda irresistible, we’d get a cuff around the ears!

Outside you can just see the new Little Branch tree. This I’ll be showcasing later on but I have to say that this architectural Black Olive tree is a classic and I’m sure I’ll be using a lot.

Earlier on this week I attended a brilliant blogger’s H&G scene build by Wendz Tempest. It was kindly given on the KraftWork building platform.  Wendz showed us how she buildings a scene freestyle.  No walls or house at first – blimey!  Lots of tips and tricks were shared. Well I liked the idea of it, so I partially built the scene above freestyle, selected all the pieces and shoved them into the conservatory.  I still fiddled about but it was fun – why don’t you try it out.

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

A Very Posh Picnic

with 8 comments

 

For when you want to dine out in style! And it’s not just for the birds and the fairies but it’s for everyone to enjoy. I’m featuring sets from Fancy Decor, Little Branch and unKindness today.

All the splendidly comfortable furniture is from the Cozy Day set by unKindness and that’s currently at Collabor88. There’s a lot of variations in this squeezable set which is for singles and couples to lounge around on nicely. Fancy Decor came up with the Hors d’oeuvre Silver Collection which will be shortly available at March Arcade. I’m showing most of it here but there are two additional pieces of buffet tables with fancy glass and fretwork panels at the front. They are thoughtfully provided by designer, Jake, for those of us who prefer to eat indoors! The gorgeous flowers are a Hello Tuesday bargain by Little Branch – all sorts of Bouton ‘dor flower fields which are a speciality of theirs. The bargain will last until Sunday 4th March and then they’ll be on Marketplace and at the Mainstore.

The diners are various birdies from TLC Home Collection, all animated and some of them will even sing. TLC make the best birds in SL® if you ask me! Then there’s a couple of very cute fairies who have flown in from Serenity Style and these were in December Lootbox.

Home and Hearth

with 9 comments

There are a lot of fireplaces around at the moment, so I thought I’d do four different styling scenes for comparison.  In the picture above, you’ll find a country cottage/rustic styling where we are bordering on the cutesy but we aren’t there yet.  It’s warm woods and country prints, especially tartan which is a popular and seasonal texture. The look is homely and comforting, just look at that roaring fire. Wouldn’t you like to put your feet up?

*~*~*

Next, we have quite a contrast with Industrial styling which is that more utilitarian, every object has to have a purpose and not be entirely decorative.  The lines are angular, with materials which often contain a lot of metal like copper and zinc.  Woods tend to be darker so as to make the metals stand out in stark relief.  It’s a popular style, not least because there’s very little fuss to be made about it.  As a rule, one plant may be included and it’ll be the sort that takes pollution out of the air, something like that.  That deer is not strictly Industrial, in fact she’s not at all, but she is carrying a piece of ivy for decorating.

*~*~*

This is classical, even historical styling, although strictly speaking, the background should be panelled wood in one texture.  The keyboard is a Clavichord,  a European stringed keyboard instrument that was used largely in the late Medieval, through the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical eras. It’s a really beautiful piece by Fancy Decor who specialises in furniture and décor through the ages, right up to modern day sets.

*~*~*

 

And our last fireplace has that Cute/Folksy styling, a popular decorating genre in our virtual world with more than a few designers making suitable sets.  The style extends to many seasons, here it’s Christmas based. Red, cosy textures, warm woods and soft toys.  Even a bit of tongue in cheek wall decorating here 🙂

Christmas in Miniature

with 4 comments

 

In praise of the ornaments of Christmas!  I’ve been spending way too many lindens on holiday decoration gacha over at Tannenbaum and Arcade,  but what struck me the most was how intricate and beautiful the ornaments are this year. So they get a post all to themselves with extra info about three of my favourite holiday gacha, thus far.

*~*~*

The background is an upstairs room in 22769’s fabulous Arcade gacha – The Mountain Lodge.  There are 18 items to collect in this gacha and it’s 50L$ per Play.  If you get desperate for missing gacha pieces and can see the lining of your wallet, try Seraphim’s Yard Sale (Arcade prizes priced fairly at the original gacha prices).

*~*~*

A simply gorgeous folksy gacha, these Belen Tiny Houses by Serenity Style are all modify so you can flatten them to fit on walls if you want – makes them a versatile ornament. The Rare has tiny string lights just under the guttering which can make quite a difference to lighting, giving a lovely, soft glow.  It’s well worth trying to get this Rare.

*~*~*

My favourite ornament gacha by The Vordun Museum & Gallery.  There are no Rares to struggle getting, just 8 beautiful Commons made in the Delft Pottery style, most unusual and rather beautiful tree ornaments.
