The weather has been a bit chilly the last couple of days and I quite like it. It’s the perfect sweater weather or preferably like in this case perfect for scarcely dressed in front of a fire.

I’m in Florida, so there isn’t much use for one here and if it’s cold then you just turn on the heat if you have a central heat and air unit system. Though I once bought a CD that you can play on your television that has the effects of a cozy fire. It was pretty cool and entertaining for awhile. I should try it again sometimes.

Anyways, hope it’s a fabulous weekend for you all..stay warm!

Sentimental reasons

Happy Wednesday!  Today I bring you some more decor from all over the grid. The first being the newest gacha release by Haikei called “Sentimental Reason” and it’s absolutely delightful.  The rare is the actual building itself with some decor pieces that I put around the room so I’m going to link you over to the gacha key so you can identify them by the picture.  I’ve also marked them below in credits at the end of the numbers.

I’m also showing the latest release by Anhelo for the new event “Man Cave” geared towards men. The decorated wood chest with the deer heads and lovely frame above the chair. I’m also showcasing a few various pieces from some of the designers that participated at the Arcade — Ariskea, Aria, Pixel Mode, Sari-Sari and [Commoner] as well as Plaaka.

Hope you enjoy the pictures and have a great one!!

There’s no place I rather be than home

When I got this skybox to blog the first thing that caught my eye was the design. My mind started to think of how I could decorate it, to create a living space without a big emptiness in the middle and keeping in mind the view from the windows.  You can see it without the furniture below. That’s where I challenged myself to completely decorate it and hoping that I would have enough prim to do so. It’s mesh and the quality of the textures are very good. It’s by Dubu and available now at SaNaRae until October 18th.

The other items that are being featured today are some of the decor pieces in the room.  Some of the plants on the table and on the stairs are by .aisling. and are available at the Fantasy Collective.  There are two sets: the Mandragorae includes four versions with texture change via menu and Herbae includes three versions with texture change via menu as well.  Each plant is only 1 land impact.

The vase in the table with twigs and the book near it sitting on top of some other books are by Serenity Style and at LTD The Event.  Unfortunately, it is the last round for this event as it was unexpectedly announced to us yesterday.  I’ve included vendor pictures of both the plants and the items by Serenity below credits so there is no confusion.

The remaining pictures with the one on top of this text and below are so that you can see the details and quality of the skybox.

My credits lists is huge and while I tried my best to stay in some particular order I might have gotten distracted and wandered from side to side as I copied and pasted. Though as always, if you want to know about any particular item, please don’t hesitate to contact me via comments, in-world or even flickr.

Her heart was like a secret garden, and the walls were getting higher

“Sometimes what we learn and who we become in the process of waiting is even more important than what we’re waiting for.”

Secret Garden 006

I’m going to get a little personal in this blog post, because occasionally a picture that I take is reflective of the mood that I am in.   I was sitting there last evening on this pose and realized it fit the inner struggles I was having.  I won’t get into the reasons for it, other than there are changes occurring in my life that are taking me out of my comfort zone and are leaving me in a period of uncertainty at the moment.  I won’t bemoan the changes… as I know that in a few years I will probably be seeing them as a blessing rather than what they seem to be now.

There is definitely some truth to the following… “there comes a point in your life when you realize what and who matters, what and who never did, what and who won’t anymore, and what and who always will.” In the end you learn what and who was fake or true.

Though luckily I was also able to use the time I was sitting there contemplating constructively by wearing some stuff that is available at the Trick or Treat event that opens in a few hours.

Specifically, referring to the skin I’m using by Zoul Creations and the socks by FDD, which are available in different colors.

DaD 017

I became familiar with DaD Designs through their landscape creations and now being reintroduced again through their newest creation of the Tuscany Loft.   The loft at a footage of 24 x 30 is 100% original mesh and only a 40 land impact.  It’s beautifully textured and quite spacious and can be purchased at 20% off while at the Cosmopolitan Room.  It’s quite a bargain for only $390 lindens.

I’ve decorated using items already in my inventory and provided all the details below.

I just know this is for me, I think

I think this is mine 0152

When I was a child me and my siblings used to love when my paternal grandmother would visit because often times she would bring with her those big vintage trunks full of stuff for us.  The trunks would contain some gift for my dad, little knickknacks for my mom and clothes and toys for us. Even when she wasn’t visiting she would always send us these big packages in the mail that always included something for us.  We loved her surprises.

These new mailboxes by BoOgErS were the kind we used to have when I was growing up and remind me of that long ago happy memory.  Speaking of these mail boxes, they are no ordinary kind.  The mail boxes and gate make sounds when you click to open them, giving you or anyone who touches them a little fun.  They are currently available at the new round of Shiny Shabby that just started so you have plenty of time to go grab your own.

I didn’t do these shrubs very much justice in the picture today, though will plan on featuring them again soon.  They are a new item by Jian and come in sizes small to tall and also a hedge, including their hud system of being able to change the season.  You can find them at the main store.

A while back Dust Bunny had a fabulous sale at their store, where everything was basically just fifty lindens.  I was familiar with the store from the various gachas they participated in, though rarely if at all gone to the main store.  I instantly fell in love with these gable townhouses, because they also brought a long ago memory to mind of the “Rainbow Row” of historic houses in Charleston, South Carolina.  If you haven’t been it’s a great city to visit, and this is just one of the main tourist attractions to visit.

It’s time to go open my package!
