Be careful where you camp!

with 9 comments

 

Be careful where you camp, especially when there’s a bunch of goat kids about! Just like us, these cute kids are partial to a bit of glamping 🙂

Goats were amongst the first animals to be tamed by man and they were being herded some nine thousand years ago. They can be taught their name and to come when called. Their life span is around that of a dog. Mother goats carry their kids for five months and they can have two to three kids per year. Kids are standing and taking their first steps within minutes of being born! Each kid has a unique call and scent, that’s how the mother recognises it from birth and not by sight. Goats are very good at climbing and have been known to climb to the tops of trees, or even dams. In their natural habitat, goats roam mountain tops and reach up as high as possible to pick out choice bits of forage around them. Like most of us, goats get depressed if they don’t have companions so are best kept in a herd. Contrary to popular opinion they are rather picky eaters. They have very sensitive lips, which they use to “mouth” things in search of clean and tasty food.

Market Le Cute

with 6 comments

 

This has to be one of the cutest markets you’re ever likely to come across!  Featuring products from Serenity Style, Raindale, TLC Home Collection, Storax Tree, Little Branch and others. I was really fortunate that all these sets matched up!

The Otterbury Tree platform is by Raindale  and you see the top portion of it here, with decorative lights and just the beginning of the ladder down to the ground.  It’s all wooden parts and has a couple of versions, one contains a tree in Autumn livery.

Now on top the platform, I’ve place the total version of TLC Home Collection’s Animated Harvest Scenery, this contains all the items together. This is also available in a version without shadows. Other versions are the Barn Owl with Fence and Sign, and the Harvest Mice and Apple Crates. These are modify so you’ll be able to split them up like I always do 🙂

Interspersed is Serenity Style’s wonderful gacha set – Arya Wooden Forest Friends – lots of versions of various forest animals and birds made in wood cutout style. This is such a delightful and folksy set which you’ll find at the current Lootbox gacha event.

Cheddar Gorge is a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills, near the village of Cheddar, Somerset, England.  It’s a magical place of prehistoric caves and hill climbs. I think this set has captured some of the whimsical qualities of the area.

Now here’s some of the mice which are after the apples, they look like tiny field mice and they are extra cute because the animation has them wriggle their noses and look around!

 

Here’s a close-up of the Farmer’s Market stall, and just look at how beautifully the fruit and veg are made, and another of those cheeky field mice is investigating the produce.

 

If you’re admiring the bobcat resting under a pumpkin patch here (and who wouldn’t) let me tell you that he’s a mere L$20 for Storax Tree group members! You do get the most generous group gifts and discounts from this design house so it’s well worth joining.

Stir it up!

with 3 comments

 

“Come on and stir it up; …, little darlin’
Stir it up; come on, baby
Come on and stir it up, yeah
Little darlin’, stir it up! O-oh!”  ~ Bob Marley

Watch

Ah, such a pleasant tongue in cheek summer song from Bob, which describes this pose rather well.  It’s from the “Barbecue Party” set by Chez Moi Furnitures which is available at the Tres Chic Event through to September 10th.

Absolutely loving this set because it is so interactive.  There’s PG and Adult versions and both have lots of poses including some very cute family animations for  2 parents and a toddler.  Now we’re cheating in this a bit because Danilo is a Zooby baby and not an actual avatar which would use the poses but don’t tell him that!

Let me show you the cooking area first. The barby can be closed and you just click on it to open and there’s the grill waiting for the food.  Touch the grill and up pops a food menu, I chose steak and sausages. Then if you just click on the food it will actually cook! Set the timer for between 1 – 3 minutes and then the food is ready to serve.

 

There’s lots of poses for couples and solo avatars on the cooking area itself.  Here we are chatting and chilling out.

 

Then the cooking starts, I’m armed with the spatula… and you can see the picnic table in the foreground.

 

Then we rush over to the table with the cooking!  This is what one of the family poses looks like, there are a half dozen in all.  Look at the spread!  You click on the placemats to display the food menu and you can choose from nine meals in all, including pudding. Now your land impact will go up as the placemats add the food but it’s not by much.  See, we’ve got the cooked sausages and steak plus corncobs which Arrchie was cooking in the top picture, so it all makes sense.  The tablecloth is texture change for six options and you can have a choice of blue, orange and red bordered placemats.  There are places for four folks on the picnic table.

 

So while the parents are otherwise occupied you can dig into your first barbecue meal! We’re slightly cheating here as Danilo is in his Zooby booster seat and I’ve lifted up the placemat a bit, but you get the general idea.

 

And here’s the situation when the burger is as big as the baby but no doubt he’ll cope!  You can see the picnic basket, paper cups, flower vase, orange cake and plate of burgers more clearly in this picture.  This is a very nice comprehensive roleplay set.

 

Lastly, here’s another one of the couples poses (I call this Grape Expectations) to illustrate the fact that all the cooking and subsequent feasting has worn me out and Arrchie has had to revive me with grapes.

Here’s what you get in the set:-

♥ Barbecue: 14 LI or 13 LI with doors linked
♥ Hanging Fern: 3 LI
♥ Hamburger Tray: 5 LI
♥ Cutting Board Set: 3 LI
♥ Picnic Table: 4 LI
♥ Placemat: 3 LI each (empty) each
♥ Picnic Cheese&Bread Board: 4 LI
♥ Classic Picnic Basket: 4 LI
♥ Cup with flowers/ Cup Stack: 1 LI each
♥ Orange Cake: 1 LI

Total Land Impact will be 52 with Permissions of Copy/Modify

Available in your choice of maturities at the Tres Chic Event to September 10th!

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.

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*. Bloom is running until the end of the month and it’s a perfect spring Event. Not only can you deck out your house but there’s oodles of garden stuff, too.  Oh, and it’s not all pink!
