Battle of the Bear Bands

Boogers 005ps

I was happily surprised when I opened up the blogger package of bears from BoOgErS for the upcoming round of The Arcade that starts on June 1st, because of what they represent.  It’s musical bear bands.

You see my father was a musician and his love of music was profound. It was his passion. He played the accordion since he was just a young kid. In his last years my dad still played every now and then with local groups and I recall one or two times where he participated in events where they had battle of the bands.  I don’t think he cared much about winning.. for him it was just doing something he loved.

Today is the anniversary of his passing and so I brought little me out to play the accordion in remembrance of him.  As you can see I suffered a little stage fright.

The Arcade opens June 1st and if you want to get all the latest news, visit their website here.

The band bears gacha will be 25L per play.  There are 15 commons, 2 rares, and 1 reward, which is something new.  You can get details on the player reward system on their website as well under news.

The other new thing with this June round is that there will be two identical Sims to shop from and two identical homestead sims to cam shop from.

Have a great Wednesday!

Greetings everyone.

Today I am featuring this beautiful cottage by DaD Designs, available now at the LTD The Event that opened a couple of days ago.   There are some great features that makes this home even sweeter like having 74 pre-loaded colors to customize the interior and exterior of the home.

The creator always gives such a detailed description of her creations and of the homes she designs with all the features.  I have included them at the bottom so you can read all the details.

Beach 005

I’ve been enjoying the beach front atmosphere lately and there is a sense of peace that I find just sitting or standing and letting my mind wander and lose itself in the beautiful surroundings and the reflections of the water and the sounds of the waves.

Doing a final post for the Home & Garden Expo, unless I get a chance to do some more or feature items in other posts.  I hope that by now you’ve had a chance to stop in and check out the expo and help support Relay for Life of Second Life. It ends on March 6th so you still have time.

I am showing some of the art pieces by Organica, which I absolutely love being an artist in real life.  While I sketch from time to time in pencil I am more comfortable with a paint brush using oils. The easel horses come with a few poses as does the posing stools. The light illuminating from the can light was inserted by me in the photo processing just so you know it’s not that lit. I just wanted to give our model a slow burn… coughs, as he was being a bit obstinate in not wanting to use the poses in the stool. The canvases leaning against the stool are by Meshopotamia and also at the expo.  I used other art pieces from various creators and are listed below.

I enlisted the help of some friends for this picture as it’s always nice to create scenes with other people and not just always by yourself.

Thanks Yama & Tall!

I’ll be waiting by the staircase


I really like this single Victorian tower, which is the newest creation by DaD Designs for the upcoming round of the LTD The Event.  It probably stems from my love of castles and too much reading of historical romance novels when I was younger.

I love when creators share the details of what inspired their creations and this tower is like the ones positioned on the lakes of Scotland to control the water level.  It is 100% mesh and has a 31 land impact and has a large room, the staircase with a bridge 10 meters long.

It’s the perfect set up for a scene of dalliance with some dashing rogue.  Don’t you think?

The LTD Event begins January 12th and will run until January 26th.

Nothing says home like the smell of baking.

Baking Sale

I survived the birthday party yesterday, well at least 2.5 hours of it.  Thankfully, it was held outdoors even if it meant bearing the cold wind.  I was wearing my leather jacket that rarely gets used so that kept me somewhat comfy.   Instead of what I would call more substance they had an assortment of crackers, hams, fruits and cheese to eat and one of my favorite wines moscato.  Just for that you could say it wasn’t so bad after all.  There was no traditional birthday cake.   In it’s place was this huge cookie cake that seems to be more popular these days that had gobs of chocolate chips in it. I took a sliver of it just to taste.

Now here I am baking up a storm in Second Life.  Shhh… I really got them yesterday at the pre-tasting of the Atelier Kreslo’s Farewell Bake Sale that opened today.   I am only showing a few of the goodies you can find at the bake sale.  While these cakes look absolutely yummy, personally I am more likely to take a serving or two of the creme brulee.

I haven’t done a post with my child alt in quite a while.   Mostly due to the fact that I don’t have my laptop anymore, which I used to log her in.

Trying to log in both using my desktop lags me completely almost to a standstill.   Thanks to my Selene, my sis in-world, she helped me out today by posing as Sydney.
