Let’s Fall in Love

with 5 comments

“We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover…
Let’s fall in love
Why shouldn’t we fall in love?
Now is the time for it, while we are young
Let’s fall in love” ~ Cole Porter, sung by Ella Fitzgerald

Ha!  I’m getting uber romantic in my old age. This gorgeous arbour has lots of animations which would be perfect for wedding photography/celebrations.  It’s beautifully made and includes sparkles on the ground.  You could even modify the size down a bit and use it as a garden arbour when you want a good focal point or divider.

The girl’s gown has a number of elegant versions included in the pack and a comprehensive texture HUD so you’ll be able to change the top, skirt and additional ruffles separately to make a unique outfit.  Not just for weddings, I think, but the shorter version would make delightful summery apparel.

The boy’s wedding suit has a number of colour versions available, not just the patterned white shown here, so do check those out at the store/marketplace.  It’s an unusual, more casual ‘n cool jacket/shirt combo which has an open shirt so you see some of the chest before the jacket buttons up, perfect for short or long necklaces and hot summer nights 🙂  Those shoes have a great HUD on them, too, you can add colour to various sections.  I do like apparel that has options, it makes everything more usable.

Sweets for Santa

with 7 comments

 

Santa always distributes plenty of sweets to folks at Christmas but I think he needs a few himself so here’s what the fairies left for him!  Please click on the picture for a huge version.

And speaking of ‘sweet’, this post is dedicated to my Blogger & Vlogger Network Secret Santa – it’s EleanorJean Resident or EJ as I know her.

I was so pleased to get EJ for the BVN Secret Santa. She’s one of those bloggers whose work I find a pleasure to read because she puts down her comments on life both bravely and honestly.

Now she’s no slouch in the Fashion department, EJ was a recent Miss Virtual World Germany (that’s her mum’s homeland) and is a dedicated, beautiful model. I was never anywhere near her level *laughs* when I was modelling, it took me all my time not to fall off the darn catwalk with the constant lag. However, I’m not bad at Home & Garden so I thought I’d dedicate this sweet scene to a sweet person ❤

Read EleanorJean’s blog and check out her Flickr

Natural Industrial Style

leave a comment »

OK, so I’ve invented a new décor style – it’s called Natural Industrial! Perfect for the city with industrial style furniture that’s combined with inspiration from Nature, herself. I’m being a bit daft but I wanted to show you the skybox from Galland Homes that is currently at The Chapter Four. It’s called the Mount Washington. Then there’s been some amazing Industrial style furniture recently, so that is part of the scene, both from Newchurch and Fancy Decor. Then there’s that magnificent wall fountain by unKindness.

I wonder if you would really get away with such an open water feature in a real life flat. Let alone a little French Bulldog leaping in and out of it, plus slurping the water occasionally, it’d be very hygenic *laughs* But fortunately, in Second Life® none of those things matters!

 

Now let me take you around the skybox.  You land in a hall and to your left is an open plan room with cosy fireplace which you can turn on and off from the panel by the side of it. The walls are beautiful plain plasterwork right now but you can tint them because the skybox is completely modify, and what’s more there’s a notecard to explain how to do it. I really like the ceilings in this skybox, the rooms have a central portion that is cut out and you almost feel that there could be a skylight window there, but even if there isn’t it does give that extra height.  The floors are a even toned warm wood parquet design.

 

So, if you now look straight ahead, that’ll lead you into a room with a view, literally.  If you click on the window frame you get a choice of real city skylines, I chose London here and you can just see The Gherkin, that iconic shaped tower that we all know and love.  I’m standing in the unfurnished version above.  You have options to use the house for assistance in inputting Second Life® compatible audio streams and/or Quicktime compatible video streams. The house will also store a list of your favourite streams if you wish.  There’s also a Teleport feature which allows you save a series of your favourite SLurl’s into the house’s memory.

 

In the room with a view, another door on the left leads to a more private room which could be a bedroom and bathroom combination.  The flooring is different in this enclosed room.  The Mount Washington Skybox has a Land Impact of only 24, and don’t forget you can tint those walls. I think it’s a very pleasant and versatile home.
