Our greatest experiences are our quiet moments

I am sort of getting this post in quickly as I need to step out and run some errands.  I’m featuring items from this round of On9, which goes until August 28th, so plenty of time for you to get there and shop.

Enjoy!

My photo is a little darker than I intended, but sometimes lighting isn’t your friend. Though I think you can still see most everything.  I’m featuring some of the items from Mesh India’s decor gacha at Cosmopolitan.  The details on land impact for each item is listed below.

Also being shown is the velvet chaise by [Circa], available now at the main store and the star decor is part of their retro gacha set at Oh My Gacha. The last items being shown are decor pieces from the Amour a Paris gacha by {Your Dreams} at Tres Chic.

Until next time.

I mentioned in my last post that I had decorated a whole cottage with all Christmas decor.  It was mainly to relax and get my mind off other things and also because I didn’t want to leave things unpacked without at least looking at them even if I didn’t get around to using. Today I thought to show it with several photos, plus it helps to have a visual for any future use.

012-full-room-view-side-1

For the most part they are items received as Christmas Gifts at ongoing events, advents, hunts, group or subscriber gifts.  I will list the sources below under credits, though not individually as it would take a lot of time of which I don’t have.

013-full-room-view-side-2

I hope everyone is enjoying the spirit of the holidays.  Also, unrelated to this post. I forgot to mention in my “Tidings of Comfort & Joy” blog post on Wednesday, the free Christmas gift by eXxEsS.  The hair shown in that post with Christmas baubles on each side is this year’s holiday gift.  You can take a peek here and find it the main store.

029

A few things to note. All the gifts by the La Galleria are for being a subscriber and most of them should still be available if you sign up at the landing point and click the history to grab the weekly note cards to see where the gifts are located.

003-1

The gifts at the arcade if you didn’t notice were under the huge Christmas tree right in the middle of the arcade.

008

Unfortunately, the Chapter Four event is over and you missed out if you didn’t grab them before the event was over. Most of the events and hunts listed are over at the end of the month. The advent gifts for this year’s KittyCatS are all still available just by clicking each day.  The gifts at Midwinter Fair are available without needing group space at the event until December 31st. Plus make sure you check out all the other wonderful stuff at the event as it has some great home and garden as well as great fashion too though it’s more fantasy related.

036

There is quite a few pieces by [CIRCA], which are part of their Holiday Advent Tree. You do have to join a free group in-world and items cost from $1-$75 lindens and some at $0 lindens. Each day items are added and kept circulating for 3 days. I didn’t receive these items until a few days ago so this is short notice as I mentioned in my post yesterday, but the gifts from days 8-24 will still be available starting tomorrow as the advent tree for those days will be opened again.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures and if you want to know about anything specifically pictured, feel free to ask me.

Have a great one!

It seems WordPress has changed the format on how to do blog posts, or it might have previously changed and I was using the old version. I don’t know.  I can’t seem to find how to get the previous way back, because I’m not liking what feels like a boxed in version.

Anyways, don’t have much time this afternoon so I’m going to point you to credits today. Still lots of great Christmas decor all over grid and also fashion.

Have a great Monday!

Taking a moment of reflection 

07

I am attempting to use my phone to post this morning. It’s not my usual method as I prefer a desktop for any computer use. Though I’m not home until this afternoon and wanted to get at least this portion done and post to Flickr later.

Today I’m wearing a new skin called Imani by Essences, made for the LeLutka mesh head. It comes in several tones…the tone worn is medium. The thick eyebrows is what I really like with this skin.  The mesh hair I’m wearing is Thalia by enVOGUE and it’s at the main store. You will find it in a range of hair colors giving you plenty of options to choose from. Variety is a must these days.  This hair has a long braid going down the back and with the hair pulled back in the front it’s easily workable for any outfit.

The dress is by Una and it’s a new release for Project Se7en and you’ll find it in a few colors such as pink, green and black to name some. As seen in the picture it gives your chest quite a boost, though I’m sure you’re not going to get any complaints on that.

Now to the decor. I’m happy to be blogging for Dreamscapes Art Gallery, a store that I’ve been familiar with since joining SL. It’s got some fantastic decor pieces, from small to large, to fill any room you decorate.  It’s where you’ll find most of this Autumn decor I’m showing. The crates with pumpkins and apples. It’s apple season so just in time for some homemade apple bread.

There’s a few goodies also worth mentioning. The bushel of pumpkins next to me is a market place special for just under 40L. The pumpkins are texture change. The wreath and scarecrow are freebies if you are a member of the subscriber group for La Galleria. Check out her store while you’re there.

As soon as I am able to I will update this post with some of the missing landmarks.

Anyways, enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

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.

download-2

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!

Welcome to my morning

Jian 001

My internet has been in and out since yesterday so I’m going to make it brief. I’m wearing a pencil skirt by MoDANNA, which is the group gift for this month. It’s a lovely sexy curvaceous dress as you can see.  In the background there I am showing another daybed and footstool by unKindness currently at FaMESHed.

The hot plate and coffee press items are by Jian, previously released and available now at the store.

The valentine items shown are all subscriber gifts from La Galleria.  This creator is very generous to her subscribers and really deserves kudos for that. Each week she has some gift that you can pick up somewhere at her store location.  She has amazing furniture and homes that are quite detailed and realistic and you should go check her items out.  My only problem is that I can only be on her sim for short periods of time before I start to lag considerably due to my slow internet and aged computer due to the high volume of items there.

Happy Friday!
