The Spa in the Woods

with 4 comments

A bit of a fantasy here, because unless you could connect to an underground water system you wouldn’t be able to use that bathtub… however, that’s what we’ve got our virtual world for, to indulge in such impossible things!

The BONDI set needs a bit more explaining… it’s called “Mi Mate” and it’s all about the consumption of Mate.  Now Mate is a caffeine rich infused drink from South America, made of dried leaves and drunk with a shared straw from a shared hollow gourd shaped container. Modern, commercially available straws are typically made of nickel silver (called alpaca), stainless steel, or hollow stemmed cane – and that’s what you can see on the table by the lantern.  Sounds a pretty good pastime to me.

Gentleman’s Autumn Retreat

with 7 comments

The cosiness of the autumn season can’t be denied, especially if you make a fireside nook. Autumnal colours are particularly pleasing, creating a warm palette for the eyes and easing the soul into a temporary but welcome security before the winter season freezes everything over!  It’s no wonder that Keats coined it, “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”.

*~*~*

The scene was created in part of the Franklin log cabin by Galland Homes.  Here’s a slide show as I walked around this beautiful building… inside and outside… more info below.

It Ain’t Half Hot, Mum!

with 13 comments

 

Yes, it certainly is!  The pups have collapsed on a very posh sofa by unKindness, and mum thinks they are in need of some of that green tea.  It’s very reviving in this hot weather.

The scene takes place on the upper floor of a spectacular house by also Known as – which is just perfect for summer outdoor/indoor living.  One of the walls on the upper floor has these amazing slotted windows which show the landscape outside and let a whole lotta light in.

The beautiful prints by Granola. are from a recent FaMESHed set which should be back at the mainstore.  So versatile, they’d go in a lot of places.  And I just couldn’t resist the vintage scooter light from Serenity Style – it matched the colour scheme so well.  Finally, I reduced a poor orange tree down to pot size – sorry, Little Branch! – and put it in a matching table.  It’s sometimes amusing what you can do with Home & Garden furnishings 🙂

*~*~*

It’s been a while since I posted because the unprecedented heatwave in the UK went on and on, and my computer was subject to overheating so I had to make real life work a priority.  Fortunately, we are back to our usual temperatures this week.  Now to get air conditioning for home and office next year will be a ‘must’ I think, especially if heatwaves become the norm.

Storage Solutions

with 6 comments

 

I’ve often heard the cry, “If only I had more storage!” It applies as much to real life rooms as it does to when we despair at having so few prims on our land that we can’t get everything in. The trouble with material goods is that they expand exponentially and even if you had a mansion you’d still need more storage.

Here’s some storage solutions, virtually speaking. All the products are amazingly low prim, even Mesh India’s storage units packed with books, ornaments and toys have a daft Land Impact. Please excuse the animals showing off by the mirror, they are practising leaping from the bookcases onto the string lights but only the chameleon has managed a good landing so far.

Take to the Stage!

with 4 comments

“I was faced with a choice at a difficult age
Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage?
But in the back of my head I heard distant feet
Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat”

Pet Shop Boys ~ “Left to my own devices”

KraftWork has made a wonderful stage (currently at Indie Teepee Festival) that has a texture change background HUD, here I’ve put it on plain black but it’s a lot more versatile than that. In essence, I wanted to do a monochrome picture today, it’s not easy to capture all the shading to give a good representation of the scene so I hope I’ve done a reasonable job here.

The main furniture is from Fancy Decor‘s new set – The Dürer Collection (currently at UBER). The collection is influenced by the work of Albrecht Dürer, a painter, printmaker and theorist of the German Renaissance. This was a cultural and artistic movement that spread among German thinkers in the 15th and 16th centuries. Albrecht established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was still in his twenties due to his high quality woodcut prints. His friends included the major Italian artists of his time including Raphael, Giovanni Bellini and Leonardo.
