A Little Bit of Zen

with 10 comments

*~*~*

This little garden by TLC Home Collection creates a state of calm where you can sit and watch the water flow, and enjoy the animals. The dragonfly can be set to “active nature” and he’ll fly from lily to lily, it’s really enchanting. The Koi are also interactive and will feed from your hand, just follow the script directions so that they will also swim around in a designated area, notecard explanations are included.

The hanging loveseat by Chez Moi is not only a beautifully detailed and observed piece of garden furniture, but it is also texture change for the pillow and cushion pieces. As with all Chez Moi pieces, the loveseat is packed with poses that everyone can enjoy.

The word Zen is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the Middle Chinese word 禪 (dʑjen), which in turn is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyāna which can be approximately translated as “absorption” or “meditative state”. It shows in a way, the progression of that desired state through the different spiritualities. All blossoms on the same tree.

Too glam to give a damn

with 2 comments

I liked the sentiment of this set by Fancy Decor. I’d say it’s about creating what you think constitutes the concept of “Glam” and not to bother about what anybody else says.  I sorted through my recent Home & Garden and came up with some fabulous pieces to match the main set.  If you haven’t visited the Home Show 2017 or would like another look, then you’ve got until July 29th.

Don’t forget, you can click on the picture to view a much larger version.

Ragnar’s Sun Room

with 9 comments

 

I left Ragnar to style Duvet Day’s beautiful Sun Room and this is what he’d done, so if you are going “eeek!” which I’m sure some of you will, blame the Viking!

The Sun Room is available at the Cosmopolitan Event for another week, it’s stunning piece of work by designer, Benoit, who I learned the other day hails from Sweden. So nice to see that Second Life® is such an international creative platform.

 

Ragnar also broke out Raindale’s Southwell gacha, also at the current round of Cosmopolitan. It’s a gorgeous thing and well worth collecting. We didn’t show the Rare from that gacha which is billed as a Garden Hideaway. This is also a very nice piece and quite large so you’ll be able to fit plenty in.

 

The Swamp Animals from TLC Home Collection are suitably fierce and include mangrove snakes, monitor lizards and piranha that swim in pairs – all the better for attacks.  The large chap hanging around in the tree insisted on having snake plants to match – fortunately {what next} came up with some. You don’t want to annoy that snake!

Here’s Ragnar having his portrait done.
