Queen Corgi’s Kitchen

with 10 comments

 

We all know that Queen Elizabeth II keeps corgi dogs, she’s very fond of them.  When I see a corgi, I always make that connection and I picture a troupe of corgi dogs trotting along merrily by the side of the Queen as she goes for a walk.  So, here’s my fantasy about one of the Queen’s royal dogs who’s lucky enough to have her own kitchen!

Gold, always believe in your soul

with 5 comments

“Gold
Always believe in your soul
You’ve got the power to know
You’re indestructible, always believe in, ‘cos you are Gold” ~ Spandau Ballet

Couldn’t have said it better myself!  Your soul thinks and acts much better than your ego and conditionings. It loves you alone and considers humanity as part of itself in one contiguous whole. Beautiful.  Another reason to consider that if you hurt somebody, you’re hurting yourself and if you help somebody by a little act of love you’re moving on the Universal level with faith and maturity.

Brighter Days Ahead

with 3 comments

 

Because it’s so cold here and I’m thinking of spring!

The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.” William Wordsworth

Ragnar does the Great Viking Bake Off

with 7 comments

*~*~*

Ragnar’s been watching way too much television lately, especially the Bake Off competition series which in his case should really be banned.  This is his idea of a darn good feast and it’s held in Odin’s Hall by unKindness who so thoughtfully provided Ragnar with his ideal home.  There’s been lots of blogging pictures of the outside of this Hall and it really is magnificent with prizes of scenery and landscaping as well as the building and contents.  So here’s  picture of the inside of said Hall.  Gorgeous isn’t it? Click on the above picture for a huge version – a bit like Ragnar’s axe 🙂

The other unKindness gacha I’m featuring today is the La Confiserie gacha, and I’ve rarely seen such an amount of yummy cakes and display cases.  I’m sure Ragnar could have gone mad on the products but he wanted to make sure the extra deer got baked as well.

Summer Garden Party

with 11 comments

~*~*~

The English don’t cope with the heat very well on the whole.  We get the sun so infrequently that we don’t install air conditioning (which would really help) and leave it to the last minute to purchase electric fans by which time the shops have run out of them or not bothered to stock them at all.  However, it is noticeably warmer in the south of the country and even quite humid so here we do daft things like car boot sales and garden parties at times when we’re all wilting in the heat.

Parasols or sun umbrellas or put that thing up pronto because I’m dying of heatstroke, whatever they are called, are very popular. Hence, I was pleased to see this magnificent sun umbrella by Newchurch in the latest set, entitled “Miramar”.  The clever thing about this set is the masses of texture change options on both seating and pillows (which you can arrange yourself) plus the fact that to collect the whole set, you need to visit both The Home Show 2017 and ON9 July Event.

Other goodies I managed to collect before collapsing with exhaustion, are detailed below but I’d like to point out the retro record player by FIN, a real find at The Home Show 2017.  This designer does all sorts of retro furniture and décor, a lot of it covering the 1950s period which I think was a lot more exciting in the USA than in the UK, where we were really into picnics and worrying about the impending nuclear war caused by the Cuban Missile Crisis.   Great fun 🙂

Here’s all the Home & Garden items I used:-

NEWCHURCH – “Miramar Set” which is split between the Home Show 2017 and ON9 Event

For the Home Show 2017 (until end July)
Miramar Lounge Chair – LI 3 plus 1 per pillow – single poses – 15 textures – Copy/Modify

Miramar Cantilever Umbrella – LI 2 – 15 textures – Copy/Modify
Miramar Chaise – LI 4 – singles and couples poses – 15 textures – Copy/Modify
(Chaise not shown in picture but it’s equally as good as the rest)
All 100% original Mesh with Materials enabled

FIN – Fifties TEPPAZ Player YELLOW, currently at The Home Show 2017

Flatiron Afternoon

with 6 comments

 

The Flatiron District is a neighbourhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan, named after the Flatiron Building at 23rd Street, Broadway and Fifth Avenue. One hundred years ago, it was a major commercial and residential hub in the City. The Met Life Tower enjoyed a brief time as the tallest building in the world, a flock of influential people called the neighbourhood home and large department stores drew big crowds. While the area began to fade around the mid 20th century, the bones for its re-emergence in the late 1980s and 1990s remained intact. Today, the cast iron Industrial and beaux arts architecture gives the streets their historic charm and dovetails flawlessly with the new shops, restaurants and nightspots that keep sprouting up.

Newchurch‘s “Flatiron Loft Studio” is inspired by those real life Flatiron industrial lofts which have been converted into apartments. I’ve attempted to style it with suitable furniture and decor, including new sets from 22769~[Bauwerk] and also from Newchurch.

Coffee and sausage rolls await!

 

It’s 2.30 pm and that lazy spaniel thinks I can’t see him.

 

Time to muse on Life, The Universe and Everything.  If you’re going to muse, do it in style 🙂

All I have to do is Dream

“When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream” ~ The Everly Brothers

Guess who’s asleep?  It’s my daft spaniel who thinks the bed is his.  Mind you, he’s so cute he gets away with it!  I’m not sure how long I will get away with a pink bedroom, however 🙂

Pink is the colour of love… and also I wanted to make a pink bedroom ever since I saw Chez Moi Furniture‘s “Bed Lille”, available at the Tres Chic Event until May 10th. A really lovely canopy bed, you can purchase it in both PG and Adult versions.  I like the way the curtains drape over the edge of the canopy, fine work from this talented designer.

Other lovely items are samples of the latest releases from [ zerkalo ] and it’s so nice to see them up and running again with a number of excellent gacha at various Events.  You’ll see I went to the Bloom Event at long last and clicked on way too many vendor tags *laughs*.
