The spices of life

Good morning!  Not much time to talk these days, but I’ll do my best to give you some information today.  I’m showcasing items from this months crate from Deco(c)rate, which you can still grab for a slightly higher fee. The Dublin old shelf is just gorgeous and comes in two tones.  The dining set by Void is another excellent piece of furniture that warms up any room with these plaid chairs.  It’s also time to pre-order the coming month’s crate now to get it at a 50% discount.  The theme is “Whatever the Weather.”  Just visit the Deco(c)rate website for more information and to grab the landmarks for all the places you can pre-order.

I’m also showing the kitchen goodies that [Merak] made for this initial opening of the Illuminate Event that features home and garden products. The rest of the items shown are listed below in credits.

Enjoy!

Tree Child

Advice from a Tree

By Ilan Shamir

Dear Friend,
Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter
Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night.
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Simple pleasures
Earth, fresh air, light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Be flexible
Remember your roots
Enjoy the view!

Shattered

Snapshot_0012

I found this shattered man statue at an animated texture shop.  It seemed like it would make a great decor item for the house, even if the space I have him in now is a bit tight for his outstretched arms. I’m breaking in the new mini furniture set that Aria released for this month’s FaMESHed event that consists of the sofa, table and vase with poppies.  I love the details on the sofa and kept going between the three colors and finally settled on this grey.  I must say that I really like when you can buy an item that gives you choices in the wood and fabric textures.  Personally, I am more inclined to spend lindens on an item like this for a set price than for an item with one color choice for the same price.  I also really like that some designers are allowing you to buy items individually.   I don’t always want the whole set, but would love to have a particular accessory that comes with the set.

This cool jacket that I’m wearing is a group gift from .Shi.  It comes with a HUD to change the jacket color and comes with a fabric necklace.  The necklace took me a little time to fit almost right, but the hair covered the bit of imperfection, which is the necklace going through the jacket.  I believe this will vary by avatar and mine is a little bigger than normal.
