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.

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.

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!

Here little birdies.

Black and White

This picture was a result of over thinking and not knowing when to quit while I’m ahead.  Shakes head at self.   I had this idea in my mind of what I wanted the outcome to be and yet I couldn’t quite grasp it with anything I tried.  Everything from Second Life being wonky to not being able to find a wind-light that I liked.   That’s when I should have known better and just stopped and tried doing this another time.  I just finally said the heck with it and made it black and white and infused with a little sepia and called it a night.

We are having a little bit of a cold front here with a chill in the air and the wind is howling outside as I sit here typing this.   That means the birthday party I am heading to in the next hour is going to be moved inside, which means the noise level in a relatively small house is going to be unbearable after an hour.   Is it so bad that I am already thinking of an excuse of why I need to leave early?   Oh well… have a great Saturday everyone.

Just a tad bit early…

welcome autumn

I know we still have just under a month before the Autumn season is officially here.  For many this means the falling and changing of the leaves to the vibrant colors of red, yellow and orange.  I live in the part of Florida where the landscape stays green all year round.

Fall

The Fall for us Floridians down south of Orlando just means the oppressive heat of the summer months is a bit more pleasant as the temperatures aren’t as hot and humid.  It also means you won’t break out in a sweat the moment you walk out the door.

So here I am welcoming the Fall season a bit early.   By the way the use of Fall is used interchangeably with Autumn for us folks here in the United States.

“Summer Flowers” Greenhouses

1

With the weather getting warmer every day here in Florida I could welcome one of these summer greenhouses in my back yard.   The perfect setting to relax, garden, read a book, taking a nap and so much more.   Aphrodite has given us this to enjoy in world in our own back yards.

2

The “Summer Flowers” greenhouses come with everything you see pictured here, plus plenty more not covered.   The greenhouses come in either white wood or oak wood.

3

The set up is also extremely easy!  Instructions directly from Aphrodite.  “Place the rezzbox on the ground, placing the GREEN arrow towards where you like the front middle to start. Select REZ, then wait till the set is rezzed. Move the rezzbox to place it in position, then press “FINISH” in the Rezzbox Menu to finish the setup (this is important). Now you can delete the rezzbox.  Before pressing finish you can move the whole set by moving the rezzbox alone. Please note, you can move the parts after rezzing, to fit your individual gusto, be creative! “

The greenhouses come with an abundance of animations that will allow you to tend to the flowers and activity poses to give you, your family and friends a wonderful role play experience.

[Circa] Living/Z is for…(challenge)

Snapshot_024

Today I am finishing off the Alphabet Challenge with this zebra cream cropped blouse from Vive Nine and zebra sunglasses from Gabriel that were part of the swagbag gift from the Hollywood event that happened several months ago.   The challenge has been fun and I really enjoyed getting to dig into my inventory.    With this outfit I am also wearing a “Serendipity” diamond ball ring from [Circa] Living that is available as a gacha item at The Monochromatic Fair that runs until May 2, 2014.   There are 18 rings to win, with 8 being rare colors.

Snapshot_0063

I am also showing off this excellent “Charlotte Bay” room set from [Circa] Living that you can also find at The Monochromatic Fair.  There are single and couple animations in the sofa swing and sit-lay single animations in the sofa, with 8 blue textures you can choose from to complement your taste and decor.

Snapshot_0266

The retro chairs also give you several options of fabrics and sit animations.  It is a very detailed and well designed set.  The coffee table has three wood colors that you can change on touch.   The rest of the pieces in the set really fit so well in any room.  I added a few pieces like the glass bowl and vase with flowers and books in the corner crates to finish the room.
