The sound of silence

I’m so used to either posting before noon or after midnight that posting at this time is going to throw me off my normal rhythm.  It was just a busy day and yet if you asked me all I did, it be odds and bits of nothing.  Well I did get some more laundry done and I had a nice juicy steak for a late lunch early dinner.

Today’s post is primarily all about fashion and decor to be found at Cosmopolitan, which is still ongoing for a few more days.  Details as always beneath the picture under credits.

Bloodcroft Castle

Over the weekend DRD released a gacha of massive proportions.  It’s quite epic as you can tell by looking at just the castle in the first picture, which is one of two rares out of a 40 piece set.  The rocks beneath the castle is the second rare.

I am not showing the entire pieces in the set or the castle, but hope these pictures gives you a feel for the quality and workmanship that was put into this set and encourages you to visit their store.  To help you identify everything I’m providing you with two additional sources, the key to the gacha here and DRD website, where it might contain a little more information.

The key you will note contains the amount of land impact for each piece, which runs from 1 to 1060 being the highest land impact for the castle.

In the first picture I am also showcasing once again the wonderful enchanted wiccan trees by Heart at FaMESHed and the ravens by JIAN at Salem.

Breakfast for dinner anyone?

Happy Monday!! It already feels like a long day for me and it’s just pass the noon hour so I still have hours to go before giving it a rest.  I’ll just get write into telling you about this wonderful spread of goodies I am showing today.  The house I’m using is the Gilley Lake House by Thistle, for the August round of Builder’s Box.  I know I’m not showing much but a corner, but I promise that I’ll be showing more in a coming soon post.

Apple Fall has released some kitchen clutter that is absolutely perfect and just so ridiculously realistic that you want to bring it home with you, even my real one! Take a peek at credits to see the newer items, they won’t be hard to miss.  I’m also showing items from this round of The Season’s Story that complements the scene. A few items from the Autumn Breakfast Gacha by Disorderly and Autumn table setting by Dawn Home & Decor as well as the Autumn lantern by Violetility. You get the theme?  It’s all about Autumn right now, so go take a look at all these wonderful things to help you celebrate the season.

As always everything shown new and old is listed in credits.

The three witches manor

I was not sure and in fact had already decided that I would not be able to showcase the latest release by DaD Designs, which is the Westbury Manor. It has a hefty land impact of 493, plus you need a large size parcel to make it work, but due to the timing of another project that freed up prims I was able to take advantage to get a quick picture in.  The Westbury Manor is available at FaMESHed until the end of the month. For more details on the home look below credits.

I’m also showcasing Halloween decor items from Cosmopolitan by Mesh India and Chez Moi.  The animals used are by JIAN, the first is the Avian Arcana gacha at Lootbox and the other is the spiders from their collection at FaMESHed.  The last items that I want to mention are the bare wicca trees by Heart out now at FaMEShed as well.  There is a large selection of trees available in the pack, that really are quite perfect for your Halloween decorating needs or for some spooky forest maybe.

Anyways, have a great weekend!!

Sometimes its better to walk away from temptation

Happy Friday!! It also means Fifty Linden Friday today only — in case you aren’t aware of this ongoing weekly event, every Friday participating stores have an item out for only $50 lindens. It’s a wonderful opportunity to grab some often cute fashion, poses and home and garden decor.  One of today’s bargain is this food trailer by Anhelo, which is available in two colors. The condiment bottles and hot-dog packages are group gifts. It’s really worth the buy and great for sim decor, role-play or in this case for creating a scene for a quick snapshot.

The other decor being featured is the bench by .:revival:., which is part of October’s Deco(c)rate mystery box and the cute chipmunk collection along with the fallen log is by JIAN, available at The Season’s Story.

To complete the scene I put myself in there wearing new hair by eXxEsS called Verona that can be found at their main store.  The dress is by Scandalize and comes in various colors and it’s currently available at FaMESHed and the new shoes are by Empire and can be found at Collabor88.  As always with Empire shoes, for one set price you get a HUD with 12 colors.  Please note that I’m using all Slink mesh body parts instead of Maitreya, though can be found for the latter as well.

Have a fabulous start to your weekend!

Messy kitchen

Lately I’ve been having some of these messy days in the kitchen.  I’ve been fortunate the last few years with my mom being with me that she does the cooking.  She’s a great… fantastic cook and I didn’t take after her. Though she’s off visiting with siblings until the end of the year, so I am in the kitchen again.  Though I get by and it’s usually eatable. I haven’t poisoned myself or anyone so far.

Today’s decor post is featuring items from two events and a sponsor and it’s all about the most important place in the home… the kitchen and the one being shown today is from Cherry House. It’s gacha and has 1 rare and 12 commons along with a nice gift you can find at the event.  The hot chocolate mugs are just a couple of a few by Quirky and the candy clusters on the island are by LovelyAlien.  You can find these all at The Season’s Story.

Now a good portion of my mornings I eat cereal and I’ve set out two of which I enjoy in real.  You will note the names on these are not the same, but if you’re familiar with the brands then you might know which they are.  These cereals are part of the cereal killer gacha by Junk Food. The baking stuff is by BoWillow, and also gacha so you’re seeing just a few of the pieces.  The Halloween cookie tray is by TeaBunny and all these items can be found at The Gacha Guardians.

Last I’m featuring the cute frame by 7mad;Ravens at Salem and it’s my parting words, “Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice” enjoy your day!!

Subdued

It’s that time of year for sure where you see pumpkins galore in real and virtually here in Second Life.  If you missed out on this past week’s Fifty Linden Friday, then you missed these great baskets of pumpkin by Hive. Though you’ll be able to find them at the main store and really make for some nice decor for this season.

I’m also showcasing items from the month’s subscription box to Deco(c)rate. If you’re not familiar with this decor subscription, then I invite you to visit their website for more information and also how to find out where to purchase the mystery box. I” give you the short version that it’s a monthly mystery box filled with original mesh home and garden decor.  You get a about 15 different items from some of the best known designers.

This month’s theme is Harvest Moon and Convair is participating with the Berkshire Barn. The barn has weathered and worn wood detail with tall rafters. It’s original design and mesh, with scripted doors and access control. It has a land impact of 136, and is scaleable, but you run the risk of a higher impact.

Serenity Style is another participant this month with the Raven Dream in the Porch Bench with pumpkin decor box and flying leaves. The land impact is 1 for the leaves – 5 for pumpkin decor and 7 for bench.

I wasn’t anticipating being in the picture, but when I had my camera set and I was standing just in the middle I sat down on the bench and I ended up changing the angle slightly.  This also allowed me to feature the boots by Mosquito’s Way, which are available at The Liaison Collaborative.

All pretty stuff to have.
