An Island Resort

with 8 comments

 

A couple has arrived at a secluded Island Resort, maybe on their honeymoon, and while they’re in the bathroom, we can have a look at their bedroom. It’s quite early in the morning and because it’s so hot, they’ve left the door out onto the balcony wide open. Crisp cotton sheets, perfect customer service and luxurious décor are just two of the reasons why this resort got a five star rating!

If only! Still, at least in SL® we can dream. The room is an upper floor bedroom that leads out onto a gorgeous balcony, and it’s not the only one in the latest prefab by Galland Homes, this is the Cape Hatteras. I’ll do another post very soon to show you the rooms and the outside but take it from me, you could do worse for your summer vacation home.

Most of the decor is from unKindness. It’s the Island Resort gacha and you can try your luck on this at the June edition of Collabor88. Lots of nice animations in this bed, including a great couples sleep Menu, for the ultimate in laziness.

I also loved these new lanterns from Granola., you’ll find them over at UBER, which has recently started its new round but you can get in now without too much trouble. They come in various colours including this light blue which matched the bedspread perfectly.

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

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.

Peachy Keen

with 7 comments

I was fiddling with Windlights again (dangerous, Moz) and came up with this extraordinary one which is a peach dawn as far as I’m concerned. I have seen peach dawns in the East, not so much in the UK, but any dawn on a clear day has the most wonderful feel to it. Birdsong is so lucid at that time of day and meditation, profound.

Very happy to display such beautiful furniture, some of it is time sensitive, however! There’s a couple of pieces here, one from Fancy Decor called the “Whiteout Bed” and one from HEXtraordinary called the “Silver Garland Chandelier” – both of those are specials for Fifty Linden Friday. The Fancy Decor bed will be available at the discounted price through to Sunday and there’s also a Blackout Bed in, yes you’ve guessed it, all black 🙂

Here’s the Home & Garden items in detail:-

Bunfight at the OKraftWork Soap Shop

with 4 comments

 

I’d just set up the shop when this happened!  It explains how I had to rush to A & E to have my head examined 🙂  Of course, I forgot to lock up and the squirrels got in, they wreck everything in their search for hazel nuts. Fortunately, they found some in the soap sack before much damage was done. I hadn’t cleaned out the burlap thoroughly before I stacked the soaps.  Look at the brave puppy hanging off the table barking at the red thief… he gets a Chelsea Bun for tea 🙂
