Beware Thessalonike!

with 12 comments

 

Cheeky Pea’s newest release, and you’ll find it at the mainstore, is the stunning “Sirena Bed” set. It’s a beautiful scallop shell bed suitable for mermaids and sirens alike, and it has a texture change HUD. Accessories of buoy lanterns and a fishing net  canopy to hang over the bed (which has on/off lights) are also included. This is my second aquatic bedroom so far this summer!

I was looking up legends about mermaids and came across this one. I’ve never heard it before but I can imagine it happening to various hapless sailors over the years! “A popular Greek legend turned Alexander the Great’s sister, Thessalonike, into a mermaid (Greek: γοργόνα) after her death, living in the Aegean. She would ask the sailors on any ship she would encounter only one question: “Is King Alexander alive?” (Greek: “Ζει ο Βασιλεύς Αλέξανδρος;”), to which the correct answer was: “He lives and reigns and conquers the world” (Greek: “Ζει και βασιλεύει και τον κόσμον κυριεύει”). This answer would please her, and she would accordingly calm the waters and bid the ship farewell. Any other answer would enrage her, and she would stir up a terrible storm, dooming the ship and every sailor on board.” So if you’re planning on wandering around the Aegean this summer, take note 🙂

Blue is the colour

with 7 comments

“I have a blue house with a blue window
Blue is the colour of all that I wear
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue
Blue are the people here that walk around
Blue like my Corvette, it’s in and outside
Blue are the words I say and what I think
Blue are the feelings that live inside me” ~ Blue (Da Ba Dee) Eiffel 65

Although the lyrics maybe a wee bit sombre, the actual song is upbeat and enjoyable.  And I think that’s one of the diverse things about the colour blue. On the one hand it’s a great colour for interior design because it’s quite restful, intuitive and nourishing – it’s the colour of the sea and the sky after all – and on the other hand the emotion of ‘having the blues’ is also associated with the colour. What a dichotomy!

My pal Exis did a blue interior this week and so I thought I’d have a go, too. Not entirely blue, I admit, but it’s amazing what you can do with toning and contrast colours. It reminds me of peacock feathers. The JIAN Betta tank must get a special mention because it has such a low Land Impact and you can rez as many animated fish as will fit in the tank – a really good addition to your lounge which will add some life and colour.

Making an Entrance

with 8 comments

 

My initial inspiration for this picture was Fancy Decor’s “Nannerl Set” – an entrance hall set that is both elegant and practical. I’m very much in favour of such sets as they are the first thing a visitor to your home will see, and as a result they are quite important to get right and strike a good atmosphere with.

There’s quite a lot of Spanish furniture and décor around right now, not least because The Liaison Collaborative has a Hacienda round!  I’ve matched up some of these pieces from various designers – I really love the splashes of joyful, bright colour which are a Spanish trademark.  If you ever visit Barcelona and see the work of architect Antoni Gaudí i Cornet you’ll see what I mean on a grand scale.

Here’s all the Home & Garden products I used in the picture today, in detail:-

Sponsors:- Newchurch, Fancy Decor, unKindness, KraftWork, Raindale

Newchurch (from Builder’s Box – May 2018 edition)
:: N :: Ontario Lake House w/base – LI 51 (without base it’s just LI 22)

This house was designed to be situated on a shoreline, with the deck just above the water. While Designer Victor has included a terrain base, you will get best results by removing it and shaping the land around the house to suit.  The floor, while mesh, is fine for rezzing packages on – makes decorating so much easier!

An Island Resort

with 8 comments

 

A couple has arrived at a secluded Island Resort, maybe on their honeymoon, and while they’re in the bathroom, we can have a look at their bedroom. It’s quite early in the morning and because it’s so hot, they’ve left the door out onto the balcony wide open. Crisp cotton sheets, perfect customer service and luxurious décor are just two of the reasons why this resort got a five star rating!

If only! Still, at least in SL® we can dream. The room is an upper floor bedroom that leads out onto a gorgeous balcony, and it’s not the only one in the latest prefab by Galland Homes, this is the Cape Hatteras. I’ll do another post very soon to show you the rooms and the outside but take it from me, you could do worse for your summer vacation home.

Most of the decor is from unKindness. It’s the Island Resort gacha and you can try your luck on this at the June edition of Collabor88. Lots of nice animations in this bed, including a great couples sleep Menu, for the ultimate in laziness.

I also loved these new lanterns from Granola., you’ll find them over at UBER, which has recently started its new round but you can get in now without too much trouble. They come in various colours including this light blue which matched the bedspread perfectly.

Wabbit Pie

with 10 comments

*~*~*

“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.
