077ps22

I took a hiatus for a day to get some fantasy posts done on my Alexa’s Fantasy Wardrobe Blog, but I’m back again today to show you some more awesome decor.

The first is this new release that is an exclusive for the SwagBag Event tailored for men. This is a themed crate event, similar to Luxe Box, where the crate is delivered on the 1st of each month with fifteen unique items that are made exclusively for this event.  If you miss grabbing the crate during the open period, you will only be able to purchase those particular items as a previous Swagbag at twice the price the month after its release.  Below credits I’ve put some additional information that the creator has provided on this set that is included in your delivery box with purchase.

Next I’m featuring another fantastic collection by JIAN.  This time they brings us raccoons, which are fantastically detailed.  There are static, wanderer and a companion that is the only one that I didn’t include in this picture.  You can find more details at the bottom of credits and can find the raccoons at FaMESHed.

Tomorrow I will be showcasing a new home by Maven Homes, which I can’t wait to show you all.

Until then… take care!

Draftsman, a SL Architecture Event

I’m introducing a new event called Draftsman, that will be coming next month.

The pumpkin harvest… it’s almost time for pumpkin pie

hive-005-1ps

I don’t recall any specific memories of carving pumpkins when I was young. Though as an adult I’ve carved a few for my mother who usually makes a traditional Mexican pumpkin candy, referred to as Dulce de Calabaza“.  It’s a candy that can be eaten all year round, it’s got a bit of a hard shell on the outside and sweet and juicy on the inside, if a bit gooey.

hive-004-1ps

This pumpkin carving animation is part of the hay wagon that is a collaboration between Decor Junction and Shutter Field for this round of On9. The wagon has single, couple and activities that are available by menu. I’m showing the rustic version, but you will find a grey version available as well and both have a land impact of only 5.  It’s a fabulous decor piece for any landscape where you want that bit of rustic or country feel.

hive-003-1-ps

I’m also showing the Autumn Carriage House by Hive, which is available at Collabor88.  The carriage home has a land impact of 47, with an open room on the bottom with static pull down stairs that lead to the top level where you have another open room.  It’s quite cozy and serves for a great little get away place.

The last item that I am featuring is the rare 2-pumpkin hay bales near the carriage house by Bee Designs.  However, in my picture I modded them by making the pumpkins invisible.  I have included the gacha vendor ad below so that you get a proper viewing of the hay bales, that I will feature again with some more Fall/Halloween pieces as the holiday approaches.

I included the last picture, which was the full view one before I took to cropping.

Happy Thursday!

Happy Thursday! It’s been a few days since I last posted here, only because I had a few items that I wanted to get done on my other blog at Alexa’s Fantasy Wardrobe. Though I’m back to show you some new great home and garden stuff.  The first item that I am showcasing is this new skybox by the Hive available at this round of FaMESHed. It has a land impact of 15, approximate size is 16L x 13W x 8H, as you can see with the picture beneath it makes for a great outside view . I provided an inside view as well in the last pictures below, where it shows the wall of doors slightly open letting in the sun or air, which ever atmosphere you prefer.

It includes this little nook, which I have decorated with a few items – some from the arcade, old releases and the ones I’m featuring from Pastiche. They are the two chairs and table nearest to the window. The chairs come with a color texture hud giving you a few options to choose from. In this picture I went with some natural earthy colors.  These will be at the upcoming Spoonful of Sugar Festival that opens on September 9th at 12 am SLT and will end September 25th.

010-hive

This festival is going to benefit the Doctors without Borders/Medicins Sans Frontieres. 100% of the proceeds of at least one item in each store will be directly donated to the charity plus a participation donation by each designer.  All monies will be going to the American office of Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), an international organization that provides emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care regardless of politics, religion or other affiliations.

It’s going to be 5 sims with over 180 stores in fashion, home and garden and breedables.  Below credits I have put some more information on this event.

The last items that are being featured are the trees by Little Branch shown in the second picture.  As you can see they make for some wonderful landscaping.  The Juniper are the ones with the swirl on the side of the skybox and you can find these at the new round of The Liaison Collaborative that runs until September 30th.  The cedar trees come in two versions and these are available at FaMESHed, which ends on September 27th.  Both are seasonal trees, which means on touch you can choose the season you want and it changes in texture to that season.

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

White Plains Plantation

001-3ps

Featuring the newest home by DaD Designs called the White Plains Plantation.  As usual the creator gives you a complete breakdown on the house and I have provided it below the credits.  As she describes, this is the style of home often found in the southern part of the United States.

Snapshot_002

A lot of the old homes are referred to as Antebellum mansions and were the neoclassical architectural style of the 19th century in the southern part of this country.  Some of the details as seen in this home typical back then in this style of home were the pillars and columns, balconies, many windows, covered porch and grand staircase

Snapshot_003

It’s a huge home for sure, but what a grand home to decorate and live in.   Take a tour in the demo area of FaMESHed or at the main store to get the full experience of this home.

The words seem to be stuck in my head this morning as I get to writing this post.  I had one of those nights where I slept like a log, but then woke up with a dream playing in my head and so I feel a little sluggish still even if half my day is almost gone.  I have racing thoughts going on of what I need to accomplish later today in between the two appointments I have this afternoon The list being checked off and yet you have this thought niggling in the back of your mind that you’re forgetting something.  In my case nothing new. I am quite forgetful already as it is.

Anyway, it’s Friday and hope some of you are off to a good start for the weekend ahead. Today I am showing another prop by Industry 7, the City Wall Set that is part of their Urban Studio gacha at The Epiphany.  I’m only showing a partial view of the wall, plus I put together two side by side for this scene.  The other item is trashcan prop with the catchy saying.

The other item that I am featuring today are the Triteleia heels by Empire. These over the knee lace up heels are just the kind of shoes a girl needs for a Friday night. Empire makes some of the hottest shoes in-world and if you like these then join the VIP Group for a minimal cost of only $499L to stay up to date on new releases and get some amazing group gifts like I’m wearing.  These are made to fit several bodies, the Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Physique, Venus and Maitreya, which I am using.  It includes a hud with 2o colors to choose from, so it’s really a great bargain.  I look forward to showing some more fabulous shoes from this creator in the near future.
