While mum was out…

with 3 comments

 

A beautiful, feminine room and that’s just what the naughty kitten likes the most! She’s trying on tiara and earrings (with difficulty) and is just about to get her paws on the make-up. Let’s hope mum gets back soon 🙂

The star of the show (apart from the kitten) is the beautiful “Crawford set” by Fancy Decor. Designer, Jake, was inspired to make the set after he’d watched a scene in the television series “Feud” which chronicles the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford when they took part in the 1962 film, “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?”. The marbled art is original and was created by Jake in Real Life using the creative method of marbling paper.

Wabbit Pie

*~*~*

“On the farm, ev’ry Friday
On the farm, it’s rabbit pie day
So ev’ry Friday that ever comes along
I get up early and sing this little song

Run rabbit, run rabbit, run, run, run
Run rabbit, run rabbit, run, run, run
Bang, bang, bang, bang goes the farmer’s gun
Run rabbit, run rabbit, run, run, run, run!” ~ sung by Flanagan & Allen who sang lots of daft songs once upon a time ~
*~*~*

The tiger’s thinking about his Friday dinner here!  He borrowed a hat as a disguise and now the rabbit is wondering why such a large white rabbit is sitting opposite and if he’s going to drink all the tea and chomp down all the cookies. Let’s hope he wakes up to the tiger’s tricks in time 🙂

This daftness is to illustrate 22769 ~ [Bauwerk]‘s BunBun Sets, now available at the March round of The Liaison Collaborative. Most items come in both black and white versions.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

 

 

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 🙂

In the Birdhouse

with 7 comments

 

You’ve heard of the phrase, “You’re in the doghouse!” I’m sure. Well this is in the birdhouse! Today, I’m featuring the “Birdside Living Room” by Raindale. This is a gacha which is currently at the March edition of  The Crossroads right up until the end of the month.

It’s a beautiful set which is rustic and pure, and there are some really well thought out pieces in the set. Please do click on the picture to enlarge it so you can see the detail of the Birdside décor and furniture. If you’re lucky enough to get the Rare, this is a gorgeous 5 Land Impact sofa which is texture change via a handy HUD for the main fabric, the wood and the cushions. This gives a lot of options and something you might find in a one off vendor set of furniture, let alone a gacha. There are also 13 animations contained in the sofa. Here’s the HUD picture.

The Commons:-

~ Chest of drawers – 1 LI
~ table – 2 LI – two tiers, you could place magazines or books underneath
~ mirror – 1 LI
~ frames – 1 LI – 4 different birds in their arty environments
~ chandelier – 2 LI a nice carved wooden chandelier with a great soft light effect to it
~ birdhouse – 1 LI – with birds sound on touch – blue tit has taken up resident already so you might have to dissuade him!
~ tea set – 1 LI – look closely and you’ll see a 3-tier stand with cream bisque teapot, saucers and teacups, and a small bird on top, lovely job!
~ pancakes – with and without doily – 1 LI each – these look yummy and they have pancakes and current jam or it could be blueberry jam with a pat of butter on them
~ vase of tulips – 1 LI

Tea with Tim – 22769 ~ [Bauwerk]

with 4 comments

22769-bauwerk-tea-with-tim-1

 

The theme of this month’s Liaison Collaborative, is that of the cinema. It’s inspired a lot of amazing work from the designers but this set from 22769 ~ [Bauwerk] entitled “Tea with Tim” was one of my favourites.  The inspiration was film director, Tim Burton, originator of such films as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and just lately, Alice in Wonderland.  This set is very much of that genre.

The Chair of Imagination, amazing contraption perched on a set of books, has a Land Impact of 7 with 14 sit animations (exclusive to Bauwerk).  The Twisted Candle is LI2 and has a touch on/off candle – such an amusing piece either on it’s own as a floor lamp or resized to fit on a table. Those two are purchasable separately.  The Jester Console (LI 2)  and tea tray Tea with Tim are together in one vendor.

Here’s a close-up of the tea tray, and you’ll see striped teapot with matching cups, saucers and teaspoons, all on a tray. Lovely detail here and only LI 4. All items in this set have Permissions of Copy/Modify.

Snow on Everything with 22769 ~ [Bauwerk]

leave a comment »

Little Winter Cottage_large front elevation
You can have any Home & Garden item you like as long as there’s snow on it!  22769 ~ [Bauwerk] have released a number of winter sets which are superb. You’ll have to brave 3 Events to get all these but they are well worth lagging around for.

I think this is one of the most enchanting Christmas cottages I’ve seen this year and what’s more, you can get a version without the snowy roof and be able to use it all year round.

Little Winter Cottage_porch

There’s a lovely porch with open/close doors and a huge conservatory that has views to the front and side of the property. A lot of picture windows add to the light effect and make a small prefab spacious.

Little Winter Cottage_upstairs

Little Winter Cottage_cottage back

The brick walls are decorative landscaping items and they have snowy and non-snowy versions for all the pieces.  Very nice texturing on these with the red brick and gray slate tops. They’d look amazing as a walled garden for very little land impact, you could use a couple of the pillars as a gateway.

Garden Walls_long

“Winter Garden Walls Building Set”
Contains:
long wall with or without snowtop – LI 4 – 6, approx 8.3 meters long,  small wall with or without snowtop – LI 2 – 3, approx 5.6 meters long,  pillar with or without snowtop – LI 2, either
