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!

Visiting Santorini

Tres Chic opened its doors a few days ago and if you’ve been then you know it’s all about ancient Greece as the theme this month is all things “Grecian.”  The event is ongoing until July 5th. I’m featuring buildings and decor by Serenity Style, {Your Dreams}, Shutter Field & Decor Junction that can be found at the event.

I’m also showing decor by Anhelo that is in Santorini Blue, which is one of two designs that will be available for Fifty Linden Friday later today.  The iron table and chairs with the decor are by Kalopsia at the Arcade.

Have a fabulous Friday!

PS — Exis make room for me ❤

The peaceful days I look forward to

Happy Sunday afternoon as it’s gone past the noon hour here and I’ve done nothing much today other than sleep in and have a banana for breakfast, so a late lunch will be calling my name soon.

I wanted to get this post in before I start doing some chores around the house. Today I am featuring three creators and the first items I will mention are the so shabby set by THOR. The vintage DIY entryway and drawers and the red ride on toy are just great decor pieces.  I think they called that ride on toy the speedster.  These can be found at Shiny Shabby.

Schultz Bros. has released some new items that are available currently at Cosmopolitan.  The green vintage cigarette machine can be clicked for a pack of cigarettes.  The other items not shown are vintage slot machines.  I’ll probably be showing them in another post soon.

The last item being featured is by unKindness, which is the pumpkin with the dog in it.  It’s part of the gacha set for the Epiphany.  There are 9 commons and 2 rares to the set.

Have a great rest of the day!

Roots to remind you where you’re from

Do you know where you come from 012-3

Doing a quick post to show you this family tree decor item that Dysfunctional Designs has created for today’s Fifty Linden Friday. The top I’m wearing is also out for today’s special pricing of fifty lindens.

I’ve always been fascinated with our family history and always enjoy hearing the stories told by my grandmother or other older members of the family.  It’s on my father’s side of the family where it gets a little sketchy as most of the older generation are long gone.  I’ve been wanting to do that ancestry DNA testing to get a glimpse of the ethnic mix in our family and hopefully gather more details on our family history.  Has anyone ever done this testing?  I’d be curious to know.

I’m in Florida and it’s high 80 degree weather so a fur coat with thigh  high boots isn’t on the radar any time soon.  That’s what makes it sort of fun to dress up in-world and this pumpkin colored coat seemed like the perfect thing to wear today.

Happy Friday!

Splash of Sunshine

Splash of Fall
The Jewelry Fair opens today and I am showing you another couple of great items that will be available.  This metallic mixed gold necklace and these studded shades in silver are fair exclusives from **Cila**.   Normally I create my own scenes for blog pictures, except I didn’t have a scene in mind for what I ended up wearing.  I’m also really out of touch with locations in Second Life.

Recently, we moved our residence to a new region and the new land sat vacant for more than a few days until Draco ordered challenged me to decorate the land and house in two days.  I’m proud to say it only took me a few hours in one day to do the order.  Coughs.   I can’t complain considering that he did the landscaping and also decorated the majority of our last residence and the land was much bigger.  He left me the kitchen.  You think that’s a sign there?

Since it’s nearing the fall season I thought that decorating with that in mind would be sort of fitting. The color scheme was the perfect color combination for what I was wearing, so you get a glimpse of our new home.

Remembering the words…

Reminiscing

“I wish I wrote the way I thought;
Obsessively,
Incessantly,
With maddening hunger.
I’d write to the point of suffocation.
I’d write myself into nervous breakdowns,
Manuscripts spiraling out like
tentacles into abysmal nothing.
And I’d write about you a lot more than I should.”

~ Benedict Smith, I wish I wrote The Way I Thought
