Sun is shining, the weather is sweet…

It’s kind of one of those days when I can’t seem to gather the right words to put a proper sentence together.  I’ll leave you all to peruse credits that lists everything being showcased today and wish you all a great day.

Stay close to people who feel like sunshine

It’s been a while since I last collaborated with Jules and if you’re not familiar with her blog, you need to go check it out at Sunshine & Sparkles.  I kept crashing quite a bit, but she was a great sport and even came back another day so that I could finally take the picture.

Many thanks Jules for your patience and for collaborating with me!! ♥

Peaceful living

Many many years ago I used to think about moving out to the countryside somewhere and living in a farmhouse. I envisioned that it would be very peaceful as it would be away from the noise of city life, traffic and the whole feel of always rushing around in a hurry to get somewhere. I’ve outgrown that notion for now, though still enjoy the look of a country home.

It’s with those thoughts in mind that I enjoyed putting this scene together using items from a few designers participating in this round of Cosmopolitan.

Warm and cosy

Today’s post is featuring new and old releases of home decor.  The August round of Builder’s Box is out now with some fantastic homes and skyboxes.  I’m showcasing the New York Basement Loft by KraftWork. It’s a 12×12 foot print with 172 land impact and 100% mesh original skybox with working doors and includes a frame and candles (last two not shown).  You can learn all about Builder’s Box and how to purchase new and old subscription boxes by visiting the website.

I’m also delighted to have been chosen to blog for Cheeky Pea and today I’m featuring another recent release. The Cosy Cottage Sofa is available currently for a few more days at N21.  It’s three versions of the sofa that are available also in either PG or Adult version. It has a land impact of 8, and animations for singles and couples.

I’m featuring several decor pieces from Zen Creations, which are previous releases and available now at the Main Store.  The items are from two separate sets — the Cosmopolitan and Contempo sets, but all work together quite nicely.  Then also a snuggle lounger too.  Go check out this store in-world if you haven’t already.

The last items being featured are by 22769, which are common pieces from the Refugium Gacha at The Epiphany and their free gift for the event.

Have a great one!

La touche

Since being back my computer seems to be giving me issues again when taking photos using advanced features. The issues started right when the new version of firestorm took off so I think it’s related somehow to the changes.  Every new version seems to make it harder for my computer to cooperate and keep up. I need to figure out what is going on… well besides the fact that my computer probably needs replacement sooner rather than later.

Today’s picture was taken on ultra except without shadows, though the quality of the picture isn’t any better and until I figure out a solution my pictures may be without any shadows.  It’s a mixture of items being featured in this post — while I probably won’t be able to showcase as much as I want and normally do for the Tres Chic event I wanted to use some of the last days (ends August 1oth) of the event to feature items. All the details on items used today are in credits below.

Have a great one!

Tropical dining

Happy Tuesday! Today it’s more pictures than words, but I definitely want to mention that the Home Show is ongoing until 29 July, so plenty of time to make it there and check out the great stuff from home and garden designers.

I’m featuring the Cilo Kitchen Set by MudHoney that is available in 8 colors (white, teak, gray, drift, cream, cherry, blue and black).  The cabinets are sold separately from the appliances that come in 3 color choices (black, silver and white).  There are quite a few pieces with the cabinet package and would encourage you to visit the event to see an actual demo. More details on the cabinets are below credits.

I’m also featuring the wren books decor by Calm and the purple hyacinth flower in the small pot next to it by Terrashop (2nd picture).  Both at the Home Show as well. The rest of the decor in that picture is by Fancy Decor and also at the show. 

The home sign on top of the kitchen counter is by Zen Creations and available at their store.  The lovely Bonham Dining Collection is by Fancy Decor and is available at this month’s round of FaMESHed.  I really enjoyed putting this together and hope that you all enjoy the pictures.

Have a great one!!

Sand in my eyes

Hello again everyone.  I wasn’t intending to do a second post today, but as I was organizing my photos for this coming week I thought let me get this last one post in since it features items from Tres Chic too.  The top and skirt are by Aleutia, which are just great for taking a stroll on the beach.  The other item from this event I’ve used before, and it’s a pose from Greek Goddess set by Frozen Poses.

The decor is a mixture from a few designers that I blog for.  The first set is the Beach Life one by Dreamscapes Art Gallery, which is their item for Enmeshed Monthly. The set includes towels for sitting at the beach, the umbrella, sand buckets, swim rings, ice cream cup and a few more items not shown. This is a subscription, and pre-orders  were for July 1st, but previous boxes are still available for a slightly higher price.  Visit the Enmeshed Monthly website for more information on this subscription event and for previous boxes.

The beach ready set by Zen Creations is at the main store now, and it includes lots of pillows, towel, radio, beach ball and some decor like the surf board, palm, stool and beach sign.  The round blue mandala design beach towel is by [Merak], and it’s only of many choices that you can find at this round of Shiny Shabby.  All these items have some great sit animations that are wonderful for sitting and laying out at the beach.

Tomorrow it’s another summer scene with a little fun twist.

Breakfast served daily

I will be brief as my mind is a bit scrambled today and it’s far better for me to be short than try to write something long and it make no sense. The decor that I’m featuring today is a mixture of items from  a few creators at the Arcade and Zen Creations along with a few pieces from other creators.

A big thank you to Julie for keeping me company while I created this scene this morning. Normally, like I’m sure most of us do we work alone in our platforms, so having the company from time to time is a pleasant diversion.

Enjoy the rest of the day!
