The Tribeca Loft

“There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world.  It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher.” ~ Henry Van Dyke

It’s been a while since I’ve decorated to this extent, but I was in the mood to do it with this newly released loft by DaD Design at the Monsieur Chic, a new men’s high fashion shopping event that will also have some furniture.  The Tribeca loft is a limited edition item and only 100 of these will be sold, so grab yours quickly.  More information on the loft is below the credits and I have also included a photo collage of the loft itself.

Another item that is being featured today is the cream and brown armchairs by DaD Design as well.  They come in pg and adult versions and are just so inviting with some very nice sit, cuddle animations in the pg versions shown here and can fit both an indoor or an outdoor setting.  These are available now at the Monsieur Chic event as well.

The last items being featured are the curious cats by Jian.  Now you must understand that I am not a cat person in either world, so it’s kind of hard to call them adorable.  Though Jian does a great job in creating some cute animals for us to enjoy the experience of having pets in-world.  Apart from stationary cats there are wandering ones that walk freely and then clinging cats for those who want to carry them around.  These curious cats are available for the new round of The Gacha Garden.  I’m showcasing a couple of common ones, a few rares and also the seed of inspiration gift that is received after a player does 20 pulls on a single machine.  I’ve put the event website below the credits, if you want more information and want to learn how to play.

The rest of the items used are from past events and a considerable amount of them are gachas.

Winter Home Retreat

007 The Den

I hope everyone had a fantastic time bringing in the New Year and hopefully still enjoying some down time.   Mine was great and I have a few more days before having to haul myself back to work and everything once again returns to a bit of normalcy.  Even though the Christmas holiday is pretty much over the winter months are not gone and what a perfect way to settle down here in your Second Life then perhaps getting away to a comfy little retreat home, which I am featuring today.

008

This is a lovely open space 15 x 15 mesh home made by The [Den.] with a land impact of 35 that comes with a built in fireplace and chandelier.  It is now available for purchase at this month’s round of Uber where you’re bound to find some other fabulous stuff.

My first two pictures show it as I envisioned it decorated for myself though with this big of space the possibilities are endless.  The last two pictures are just two close ups showing the building by itself.

The fool.

Juggler

Over the weekend the temperatures dipped into the mid 40s, which is a bit chilly for us Floridians when you’re used to an average of 80 plus degrees of sunshine.   It was a nice change even if I hardly went out other than a few times out of necessity. Besides the chilly day yesterday I was also in a very restless mood that as the day went on juggled between feeling emotional and downright grumpy. Thankfully, no one was harmed during this episode of changeability.

I spent a good amount of time doing inventory while in Second Life, not necessarily deleting, more like organizing and rewriting descriptions to be able to find items in the future.  It’s how I found myself wearing this cape and fools hat that were a gacha purchase at the recent round of the Fantasy Collective, which is still running for a few more days.

While editing the photo I did a quick search on the fool and found this snippet of information on what the fool means in a card reading.

“The Fool can signal a new beginning or change of direction – one that will guide you onto a path of adventure, wonder and personal growth. He also reminds you to keep your faith and trust your natural responses. If you are facing a decision or moment of doubt, the Fool tells you to believe in yourself and follow your heart no matter how crazy or foolish your impulses may seem.”

Considering that I have always found that when I’m feeling restlessness that it signals a time of transition in my life, this descriptive meaning couldn’t have fit any better.
