Green Fingers

with 8 comments

 

“Green fingers” is primarily an English phrase and it means if somebody has green fingers, then they’re very good at gardening and everything they touch flourishes. You can even say this in Hindi –  बाग़वानी में निपुणता – but it still means having this special ability to make the plants grow.

All work and no play

leave a comment »

*click for larger size

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” is an old proverb, circa 1659. It means that if you work all the time it makes you both fed up with your mundane daily life and uninteresting to know because you’ve only got the one subject to talk about! The products in my scene today have the world of work and leisure time in mind. You’ll find the items at the current Edition of The Boardwalk Event.

*~*~*

Here’s full details of the Home & Garden products I used in the scene today:-

Sponsors:- The Boardwalk Event, .:TM:.Creation, HILTED, Park Place, [BMS]
Events: – The Boardwalk Event

*NB – all products have Permissions of Copy & Modify unless stated otherwise!

The Boardwalk Event started March 15th so plenty of time to walk around and check out the beautiful spring items – furniture, décor, garden landscaping, props ‘n poses, prefabs

1. .:Tm:.Creation
“Spring moments” Nature Scene with animations – S36
A stunning Original Mesh nature scene that is totally modify so you can unlink, copy and rearrange all the constituents. Be careful to take a copy, though, because this Scene is filled with Bento animations and available in both PG and Adult versions. The Scene has rocks, ropes, flowers, pillows, a stone pathway, lantern, wood piles, watering can and wild flowers. Land Impact is just 15. There’s also a décor piece included – the puppy and cat for a further LI 1. Footprint will be approximately 6 m wide by 3.6 m deep. If you do unlink, try to link everything up afterwards when you’re happy with the scene, as this reduces the Land Impact.

PG Version: 264 animations 30 sec loop x each: 89 PG couple poses – 7 PG Scene Sequence for couple – Solo: 2 single sit (F/M 86 poses)

ADULT Version: 424 animations 30 sec loop x each: 89 PG + 80 ADULT couple poses – 7 PG + 6 ADULT Scene Sequence for couple – Solo F or M: 2 single sit (F/M 86 poses)

2. HILTED
Pieces from The Lennox Collection
This is a full pack which has the Retreat building itself (with rezzer) and the constituents to make any sort of deck or outside arrangement you can think of. There’s also some furniture included with solo and couple animations. It’s a lovely, warm colour of wood with contrast edging pieces, waterfall wall, 4 sorts of tiles and various flooring pieces so you’ll be able to get that individual look. You can also tint all the pieces.

Let’s Fall in Love

with 5 comments

*click on the picture for a larger version

“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.

Mirror of Desire

with 3 comments

 

In the novel, Lord of the Rings, the Mirror of Galadriel was a silver basin of water used in the Elven realm of Lothlórien by Galadriel, an Elven queen. The Mirror was used to grant the viewer an image of the past, present, and possible future.   In many ways it was a mirror of desire as it sometimes showed images that the viewer wanted to happen so it was not really an oracle but an object of the Imagination – and we all know how vivid that can be.  One of J.R.R. Tolkien’s warnings was, I think, be careful what you desire least it trip you up.  And he showed this again and again in his mythic novels which were, at least partially, an allegory of what happened politically during the two World Wars.

I’ve combined two of .:Tm:.Creation’s Nature scenes today, these are such fun to work with because you can edit and move constituents around until you’ve got it just right!  It’s also possible to totally unlink these and use parts of them separately.  Say, you have a group of flowers within the scene… these can be unlinked and copied around to build up your landscape.  The Rock Nature Scene sits at the back of my picture, but in front of this are also grasses and flowers…
