You were larger than life


My father was one of those individuals that was larger than life, but he was just a man with a passion for life, his music and family. Today is his birthday and I miss him a lot.  I wasn’t sure that I would get around to doing a blog post today, but I’ve done one the last two years in tribute to my father and so I could not go without doing it.


The items that I used for my picture are all from this round of On9, minus the hair and the basics that I wear most days. Everything is listed in credits and instead of creating my own scene I visted Winter Trace, which reminded me of one of our last family trips to the Smoky Mountains during Christmas one year.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have


Featuring a new release by [Schultz Bros.], which is this skybox that is available now at this new round of Cosmopolitan.  It’s copy/mod with only a 7 land impact and its approximately 15 x 11m.  Great if you are limited in prim and need something small. I’ve included a collage picture below of how it looks unfurnished.

The skybox is furnished with some new and old stuff.  The bed, ottomans, clock and mirror along with the nightstand are items by Bee Designs and it’s from their French Rose gacha.  It was from a previous event, but you should be able to find it at the store.  The stuffed sheep near the stairs are also by Bee Designs, and are from this round of Lost & Found, but it ends tonight, so they should be available at the store.  They are the cutest things and make great decor for anywhere in the house.


Here’s a close up of the dogs. The adult wanderer I’ve shown previously in a post and it’s the reward dog when you hit the JIAN machine at the Arcade 25 times.  The family bed is a common and its texture change for both the dogs and the bed. It’s also only 1 land impact.

Holding on to what holds on to you

Reverie 016ps2

Another peek into the Arcade.  Today I am showing the Glasswings Collection by {Reverie}.  These are wearable items made for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass.  There are 10 pieces to the collection and two color versions of this outfit. I’m wearing this monarch and somewhat vintage white with only the hand accessory not worn.  The other color version is blue.

I’m holding another color of the lively labs by JIAN, also available at the Arcade. The other two items being featured are also by JIAN and they are the floating candles in the metal bowl and the glass containers on the bench. Both are texture change on touch.  They were available for Fifty Linden Friday, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to blog them in time.  Though check the store as sometimes creators leave their items at that price until the weekend.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Indie Teepee is back with a midsummer nights theme. If you are not familiar with this event, check out their website for more information. I’ve included the link below the credits, but taken from their site, it’s a place that “brings people together through their love of song and art – breaking down barriers and providing a haven for music genres like indie, alternative, rock, electronic dance music and hiphop.”

There is shopping as well!

Today I am featuring items by unkindness at the event.  The in tuned benches come in two version, with or without a blanket and include single m/f animations and couple ones as well.  There are four colors to choose from.

I’m also featuring the star fairy hanging by 7mad:Ravens, which is currently available at The Project Se7en event.  It’s been ongoing since June 30th and ends at the end of the month.  There are other sets available at the event as well.

Have a great Friday!

Tia 007-Darker

After several restless nights I finally got a good sleep in, so I’m feeling bright-eyed and bushy tailed. In other words fully alert and with a slight degree of enthusiasm. I’m not a morning person after all!

Today I am featuring a new designer/creator.  New to the blog, but not to Second Life. She’s been around for a few years and her store  in Second Life is focused on original, high quality, mesh role play furniture.  Her new release, the Kaoutar lounge set, is a gorgeous adult set of furniture.

You get quite a bit of animations with both the double and single seats, that have a mixture of single sits, cuddles, dominants and sex animations.  It’s 100% mesh and my favorite of all creations is always the texture hud that gives you a little customization.  This one includes a hud with 10 luxury colors for the fabric and 5 wood colors.

The set is available now at the new We ❤ Role-Play round that started July 5th, and will go through July 31st.  It will be at the main store after the event, but why wait, grab it at a discount now!

Sobering thoughts


I’m doing a second post today; even though it’s a little after midnight so technically it’s the next day right?

What I’m featuring is this tavern set by [Nobles Creations], currently at the Lost & Found Event, which ends at the end of the month.  If you’re not familiar with this store, it is a Medieval Fantasy Store that has furniture and also role-play items.  The store is celebrating it’s first anniversary starting tomorrow.  There will be a party and during the party, a special crazy hunt where there will be 12 gift cards hidden in a small package somewhere inside or outside the store.

See details below the credits.

Happy Monday to everyone.  I am featuring this lovely breezy cottage by DaD Designs, currently now available at Shiny Shabby that opened on June 20th and will run until July 15th.  Below the credits are the details on the cottage, and personally the 74 pre-loaded colors for the interior walls is a big plus. With a land impact of only 26 it’s another huge advantage.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Happy Sunday!

I’ve been trying to get this posted since the morning, but it’s been one distraction after another.  Just got off a two hour phone call catching up with a friend and I said let me get this done before something else comes up.

As the month is coming to a close, so are a few events.  I’m doing one last post for items that can be found at On9, which ends on the 28th.  I’m beginning to be one of those last minute shoppers… waiting for the lines to go down and not having to fight the lag.

I’m featuring this lovely heavenly paradise patio set by Lavian & Co., which includes the sunshade, planters, table and chair that has like 18 sit animations.  In the background is a piece of wall decor by Chiana Oh. The rosette decor is available in 4 colors perfect for the summer months or you can grab them in a fat-pack.

The pose I’m using is part of the Spanish patio pose prop by Exposeur, which is a pose store closing at the end of the month.  I really loved the poses that came with it, and figured the prop would make a great background for future posts.

I’m wearing a new hair release by eXxEsS.  This hair can be worn with or without the summer hat. It comes with an extensive hud for both the hair and hat and the newest feature of breeze in your hair to give it that natural movement as you walk about. It’s available now at the main store.

To complete my look I am wearing a swimsuit by R.icielli, which comes with a texture hud that gives you plenty of options with 26 variations.  It’s a great bargain! These super high heels I am wearing are from [MODA], which also come with a texture hud, giving you several options to change the straps, platform and bows on the shoe.

Don’t miss out on these super bargains!  Enjoy what remains of this weekend!

Epia 005 Close up

When I got this firefighter uniform, a new store release from (epia), also known as “Every Pixel is Art,” the thought of doing a scene of saving a cat from a tree came to mind.  Except someone beat me on the concept and so switching gears I recalled this animated water hose in my inventory and the scene sort of created itself.

Have a great Monday!
