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 Autumn home

Having lived in the southern part of the state of Florida we never had the change of leaves to bring in the change of season from summer to fall.  Just about the only change was in the weather where it isn’t so hot and muggy.  Now I live further up the state in the north central area and we have some trees around that do change color so I’m really looking forward to that. There is also an abundance of huge oak trees with lots of Spanish moss that I think a picnic outdoors seems to be in my future. Maybe.

Today’s post is showcasing some autumn home decor by Cheeky Pea available now at the N21 event. There is a piece missing from the set and it’s a set of wall picture frames surrounding a large star.  Great set to get started on decorating for the upcoming season.  I’m also using some several pieces from the “memories” gacha by YS&YS, which fits perfectly with this season.

Have a great Wednesday!

Don’t bottle it up all inside, let it out

008

I don’t know if I ever really bottled up things inside. It probably depended on what it was and if I did it was probably not for long. More often the case as quick as I was to get angered I was quick to cool down.

These days I rarely hold back my tongue, though I am very diplomatic in nature… well most of the time.

Today I’m showing this furniture set by Mushilu that is available at Whimsical. The set includes the rose color dresser, book lamp and the table with some of the bottles.

I’m also featuring the mushrooms right outside the door.  These are the latest landscaping decor by Little Branch.  They are available now at the newest round of Shiny Shabby.  On touch you can change the color of the mushrooms.

Have a great Monday, or what’s left of it.

[ARIA] @ 6th Republic

Aria 027

I didn’t plan on doing a post today as I didn’t do much last night while in-world outside of walking the dark style fair and a sneak peek into 6th Republic. Normally, I take pictures during my time in the evening and blog first thing in the morning or every now and then later in the day when I have a free moment as often times I’ve already started the post with the picture and credits done. The only drawback to not posting in the morning is that then I’m at work and I don’t log into SL at work and while I can access the blog and post I don’t have access to my pictures to upload onto Flickr.  

Then I came in-world tonight and found this set from [ARIA] and having had a long day and feeling slightly worn out I set to decorating this kitchen to relax and just leave my work day behind.  It’s called the Emmerich and can be found at the opening round of 6th Republic, a new decor and landscaping event that will have exclusive 100% original mesh in a theme selected for each round.  This month it is industrial and the modular kitchen set that [ARIA] has created comes in both PG and adult and as always it comes with texture change options for most parts.
