Over yonder

006ps

I might have mentioned in a previous post or two that I don’t watch a lot of television, especially in the last few years. Until now, the last time I tuned in to watch anything was the election debates.  Recently, my niece introduced me to a few shows on Netflix, which have been entertaining and since there’s no commercials I have been on a binge watching a few shows at a time.

I just finished watching the first season of the series, “The Ranch,” and while not overly fond of all the cursing in the movie it kept me entertained enough to keep seeing it until the last show.  The comedy follows the return of a struggling semi-pro football player, to his Colorado home to help run the family farm with his father and older brother.  All played by familiar known names in the acting profession.

015ps

My pictures were not inspired necessarily from watching the movie itself.  It was from the theme song, “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys,” originally performed by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. I remember hearing this song when I was growing up, and it made me smile as I thought of that long ago memory.

In the first picture is another wiener dog by JIAN, the Ducky PJs wanderer, which is a common in the Wonky Weenies gacha at the Arcade.  The rest of the decor items also previously shown, are from the Hive’s American Countryside collection, and also available at this round of the Arcade.

The second picture was a just because and similar to an image that played with the theme song in the series.

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!

Schultz 008ps2

Good Sunday everyone.  I hope it’s been a non-eventful one or even an eventful one of the better kind. Mine has been rather quiet other than I broke the screen of my phone, so it was a bit of a nuisance to deal with.

Today I am featuring items from [Schultz Bros.], a creator/builder that I will be blogging for. Their products are all original mesh creations, very high detailed and what more can you ask for then at a low prim cost.  They have some of the most fantastic historical and abandoned buildings.  If you are not familiar with them, you really ought to go check their store out.

I’m featuring their latest creations, which is the Gardens House Gacha set currently at The Chapter Four.  It has 2 rares and 14 commons that I’ve listed below by their number. I like doing that, because it can be somewhat frustrating to try to identify the items that go with a gacha, especially if not grouped together in a picture like this.  Plus it helps me identify it later if and when I want to use it again.  My flickr and blog have become my source for finding items in my inventory!

Below credits is some helpful information provided by the creator to help you make the best use of this set.  The miniature replica of the house is not another item in the set, but rather just a copy that I made and downsized it to be the dogs home. The idea came when I was trying to give the picture some balance and was thinking to put out another large building so I put another copy of the house. It would have worked except when I tried to rez the next thing I was short on prims, which meant I had to rethink my idea. It lead to minimizing the house down into a pets residence, which gave me a chuckle as I was recalling a recent experience that my niece was sharing during her hours of volunteering at one of these non-profit animal shelters.

She talked of how each dog had its own dog house along with a pool and other comforts. Making us laugh as she is rather a very good storyteller. She’s like what pet wants to get adopted when they’re living in that kind of luxury? I sure wouldn’t! The homes were set up like a whole neighborhood and the dogs would be sitting on their front porches as if talking to each other. You can’t help and smile at the image.

The other item that I am showing today is the olive tree by Little Branch.  It’s available at this next round of The Liaison Collaborative.  It’s 4 seasons, so on a click you can pick the season you want. Go check it out!

Enjoy the rest of what’s left of your weekend!

Pull price is 60L.

Everything is hand made, 100% mesh.
All items are No Copy, Modify, Transfer.
All items, when sized bigger, will most likely increase the land impact… obviously 🙂
Please keep in mind, I don’t transfer items to Copy / Mod versions.

**All items not listed have no notes, or require no additional knowledge**

01. The Gardeners House RARE – Be aware that when changing wallpaper, you will not be able to get the previous wallpaper back. Also, changing the left wall will also change the right wallpaper with it. Same with front and back.  **I would suggest tinting the walls to a color (use light color), if you’d like to change the look & atmosphere of the interior of the house**

05. Mailbox – does not close.

08. Wheelbarrow – Features texture change. Touch to fill with dirt, touch again to remove.  If you plan on never having dirt, you may simply delete the script inside.

10. – 14. – All plants, please read. These were designed to be placed with the stems and small sign slightly in the ground. The most complex to place might be 14. Carrots. I’d suggest keeping the tops of the carrots slightly above the dirt. Also, linking 2 plants will keep them at 1 LI together. The exception is the Herb garden, as that one is 1 LI even.

15. Garden Path – The path comes wide, and is actually 2 PIECES. You can unlink them, (or edit linked parts for us lazy people lol), and move the other piece in front of the other to make very long path. The Land impact will remain 1 LI, just remember to link them back together 🙂

16. Tea Cup Bird Feeder – If you’d like to use the bird feeder without the stand,you will need to make the string & metal stand texture 100% transparent, then simply place it on whatever surface you desire 🙂

Thank you again & if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let me know!

The Tribeca Loft

“There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world.  It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher.” ~ Henry Van Dyke

Dad Jian 014ps

It’s been a while since I’ve decorated to this extent, but I was in the mood to do it with this newly released loft by DaD Design at the Monsieur Chic, a new men’s high fashion shopping event that will also have some furniture.  The Tribeca loft is a limited edition item and only 100 of these will be sold, so grab yours quickly.  More information on the loft is below the credits and I have also included a photo collage of the loft itself.

Another item that is being featured today is the cream and brown armchairs by DaD Design as well.  They come in pg and adult versions and are just so inviting with some very nice sit, cuddle animations in the pg versions shown here and can fit both an indoor or an outdoor setting.  These are available now at the Monsieur Chic event as well.

The last items being featured are the curious cats by Jian.  Now you must understand that I am not a cat person in either world, so it’s kind of hard to call them adorable.  Though Jian does a great job in creating some cute animals for us to enjoy the experience of having pets in-world.  Apart from stationary cats there are wandering ones that walk freely and then clinging cats for those who want to carry them around.  These curious cats are available for the new round of The Gacha Garden.  I’m showcasing a couple of common ones, a few rares and also the seed of inspiration gift that is received after a player does 20 pulls on a single machine.  I’ve put the event website below the credits, if you want more information and want to learn how to play.

The rest of the items used are from past events and a considerable amount of them are gachas.

Mod-Dys 0022_006pf

I remember growing up the clothes lines we had in the back of our home.  They were always full of sheets flying the wind or clothes of all sizes.  We were a large family and doing laundry was probably an every day occurrence.  It’s kind of rare to see these anymore at least not near me as today it’s washing machine and dryers inside the home.

Though every time that I see one I am reminded a little of my childhood days and I can’t help and smile of those times.  The days of being happy, carefree and not really recognizing if you had more or less. The days before having electronic toys and fun was doing recreational things outside like playing marbles and jacks.

Yep, those were some good ole days!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Musical session on a hot summer night

unkindness 005-33

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!

Dog sitting

Jian 008

I actually did this over the past weekend with my sisters dog as she traveled out of town for the day. Her dog is pretty tame and  is very content these days just to claim her space in the room and sit quietly.

In-world it’s a different story.  I can handle more than one.  These cuties I’m showing are the corgis from JIAN that will be available tomorrow at the Arcade.  There are 15 total with 12 commons and 3 rares with a 11% rare chance and $50L per play.

There is a new thing with the Arcade this round and that is the rewarding of loyal players who at 50 plays to the same machine will receive a reward.  JIAN’s reward is the kite flyer corgi, which has 5 different whimsical animal kite textures.

There is so much more to the corgis than what you see.  Get all the details on the corgis below the credits.
