Lazy Day

Lazy day; feisty day (fighting with bureaucracy).

Either way, books are an escape. I love books for props and decor. You can pick these up as part of a gacha set at The Feeling. They come with touch on-off shadow (nice) and hale from Arcana Antiques & Oddities.

Along with books there are candles, a candelabra, a skull and …

a reading nook with poses. ESCAPE! Here I come.

My outfit (sans undies) are parts of new releases from K-Code.  There are also similar jeans with bunched bottoms rather than cuffs. With many colors to choose from you can mix and match to your heart’s content.

The building I am standing in is newly out from {theosophy}, the Nicholaston Skybox.  It boasts an open plan, gorgeous windows, an atrium style entry (doors don’t open — in the air, ya know) and texture change hud. A great space for entertaining (big dance area if you so choose) OR a very nice shop in the sky.  It has a 20 x 20 footprint and is 36 LI (yeah). If you were sneaky you could fit this on a 512 :D.

These radiators come with and while not available separately at the moment, they may be soon; I put in a vote for that just for you. Oh so cute they would be a great addition for your current abode should you not need a new one!

Arabian Nights Duo

Need a bit of the exotic in your life? Hop on over to Mirage and pick up these nice outfits on the Arabian Nights 2 Hunt. Be sure and click the hint giver at the entrance of the store. You are looking for an Aladdin Lamp.

Some prim adjustments will likely be necessary. The lady’s outfit comes with shoes but they are sized for babies (who knows). If you keep at it, you can get them to fit. OR there is always barefoot.

This is a 1 linden hunt. Both outfits are in one box.

Remembering Dove

We are a bit of a motley crew this morning. The theme of this post is pose making, this week’s Monday Meme. But, as circumstance would have it, a freebie post was in the works. Hence a duel duty photo shoot along with a brief overview of one good hunt. A nice gift is a bonus.

Now my lead photo holds NO comparison to Strawberry’s, but that’s OK. We had a good time; all got together (a rarity) and shared some reminiscent moments about Dove.

My pose is called “Doin Right” and is from February 16 2009. Like Strawberry  — and I am guessing many old timer’s — Long Awkward Pose is at the top of my list. I still use them often and add the (nla) designation sadly. No longer available is not something I like to think about when LAP comes to mind. I grew up with Dove’s poses; many freebies. I watched stores change, satellites come and go, and finally a carnival sim. Later the atmosphere turned to pastoral bliss. The poses were always great to try.

The group pose that I think of as the three monkeys (hear,speak, say no evil) was undoubtedly from a hunt. The Poop hunts (you were searching for doggie droppings with a pail and shovel — still have those) were legendary LOL. Good stuff. Much fun.

I asked each of my gal friends to pick out a favorite LAP pose. We are all old, so we of course ALL have them!

Now I need to digress from poses just a bit (this is going to be a long post and since it took many many hours, I may call it “tomorrow’s” post too) *wink*. Yesterday a long time friend of mine asked about a getting some new duds. This was a guy and one who seldom changes outfits, so I was thrilled that he felt some new wardrobe additions were in order.

Getting stuff for guys IS hard, especially free things. I did find a few items along the way and will show those off soon. He found a sweater he loved at a place he got a free group gift (see that giftie – shopping thing DOES works sometimes) and is happy. He also now understands (I am hoping) about ADD and alpha layers. I told you he doesn’t update often.

Along the way, I found some new stuff for gals, which lead to a phone call and then the discovery of a hunt. I didn’t pick up anything new (I mean I have SO much) but I enjoyed my time on the search and the lucky chairs and the boards and all. Old times remembered.

THIS outfit is from the Designer’s Easter Hunt which started a few days ago. There are four stores with ten items each. We started at Sassy of course and that was a good plan as the eggs were big there and the store not huge. So between us, we found all the eggs. Bee is wearing a really pretty mesh camisole top and some metalic jeans (different prizes). The tattoo is one she found on the same hunt but at  Naughty & Nice.

Now even though the gals looked hard, they only found a few prizes there. The eggs were much smaller and colored, so that may have something to do with it. Each egg has a hint to the next egg, but a better plan is just to look around the stores; many of the hints don’t make much sense and “may” actually go to an egg in ANOTHER store, not where you are. That was a bit confusing.

There are some nice things to be found at Edelfabrik. Three full outfits are part of the prize packs. Lots of undies too. This is a combo of two of the full outfits. SHOES are included, and these are especially cute. The top has a hud for the undershirt so you can change colors and sayings.

Pick up a notecard from the hunt poster to get all the landmarks.

Last up is Dee with a free dress from TuttiFrutti. Find it as you walk into the store.

[ LNS ] – LaNoir Soleil Designs had a great deal going on over the weekend. Alas it is over. A free gift card to use at the store. This hair came from there as well a Bee’s. My alt got some new hair too!  Very nice with great color huds.

Even though that generous give away is over, you can get free hairs (pink and purple and the one black one Bee is wearing  –most likely there by mistake) in the ROW of lucky chairs here. There are also gifts to be had in the same area.

Now back to poses -

Part of the meme was to list our favorite posemakers. I too have lots of poses even though I go through each pack and delete ones that don’t fit or that are so similar to another there is no point in having both.  Here are my favorites and the ones that you have no doubt seen I use most often.

Long Awkward Pose – long gone but definitely not forgotten.

Diesel Works – Great poses for guys, many free pose packs in the store — usually one a month — and some very creative work, makes this the number two slot on my list. If I am in a REAL hurry, I type in Julie to get some of my all time favorites.

aDORKable – I have a ton of aDORKable poses. Most I have gone through and are in categories like stances – glamour, girlie or natural. Others that came with props are still in sets. Still available on the marketplace, I was very sorry to see the creating cease.

Under The Tuscan Sun

I am not sure if this month’s The Liaison Collaborative is super special or if it is just my romantic notions. Either way it works for me.  I can almost picture a rugged good looking guy pouring me a glass of wine as I gaze over the vineyard. Yes, it must be romance.

This gloriously textured food plank is from Pixel Mode. It was just SO beautiful I had to have it — living now in Tuscany ya know.

It sits in its glory on a table with deco from 22769 ~ [bauwerk]. This is part of a BIG release for the event.

Tables, chairs and amphore (urn) are also part of the 22769 set. Other coordinating items are available.

When I first starting setting up the Tuscan Villa, I knew I wanted a vineyard. Alas my search lead me to sculpts and primmy ones at that. I couldn’t afford the land impact.

To my VERY pleasant surprise, this round’s offering from Botanical is a grape vine set. Two sizes (these are the longer version) on trellises as well as some single bushes are included.

They come with an easy to use hud to change the seasons. Posts and dirt can be visible or not on an individual basis. This is an outstanding value if you have anywhere to start a vineyard!

And if your dreams of the Italian countryside include a very large mansion, Barnesworth Annubis has you covered with his new release, Villa Siena. It comes with a roomy enclosed courtyard. This is the view from the back. Impressive.

One More With Feeling

One more post for The Feeling.

Words are the theme this round. Even if you can’t read the painting in pink (I can! *wink*), it is very pretty. I’ll let you use a translator to discover the meaning. It is one of the rare gacha items from [freebird].

My top is one of four off the shoulder number with sayings. This was definitely my favorite. “Dance the Dance You Dance – Don’t Dance the Dance People Who Dance Dance”. Love it. There are three other wordy choices in the hud pack. This is from the NS:: Cutie Store.

The colorful, Springy pinwheels are one of the offerings from DaD DESIGN.

TLC for April

The Liaison Collaborative has opened for April. New from BAIASTICE, a collection of  posh attire just right for Tuscany — my vision of it anyway.

The Metallic Plisse Skirt and the Vena oversize sweater come in lots of great color combos so you can pick your favorites. Contrast or blend from a palette of hues.

Nearby at The Garden outdoor living is featured. Now there are a lot of folks not set up there yet, so you might wait a day or two and take it all in at once. Sway’s however IS set up and you can find this Garrison Pergola along with lots of furnishings and decor.  I, of course being a details gal love the fruit, magazines and topiary the best.

Oh wait!

I don’t know HOW I forgot about the windchimes, but when I journeyed over to TLC this morning and heard them, I remembered.

These are just gorgeous. They turn in the breeze and sing. There are several colors with my favorite being berry, but this was a quick shot I took at the venue so I could update this page.

I can just feel that warm sun! Yes!

More on TLC coming up. It is GRAND this month.

Easter Goodies

It’s that egg and bunny time of year.  I will miss the festivities at the Bayou. Good memories.

PARADISIS, [KEKE] and Ayiki’s have an egg hunt going. Find this cute dress (five size in I am guessing five eggs) plus egg basket, pretty daisy choker and a bunny for your head. Eggs are both in stores and outside; not all eggs have something inside.

This slice giver Easter Cake is a group gift (both {what next} and Love To Decorate groups) from — well, {what next} of course. Very cute!  I have company coming today and I am going to surprise them with FOOD! 

Bonus? NO calories!

Go Wilde

The theme of The Feeling this round is WORDS. Frogstar has some  great warm weather wall graphics on driftwood; three colors in all. I love word art and these are perfect for beachy or shabby chic abodes.

My outfit of the eve (very happy with my experimental Windlight setting) is from Ducknipple. While the top is a previous release, the ohsodetailed shorts are brand new.

A hud lets you choose between twelve (yes TWELVE) colors. Both summery pastels and neutrals are only a click away. Look for Devil Shorts. And yes, the back is even cuter than the front. Try them!

Clockwork Rewind

Steam, Victorian, Roaring 20s — come together for a fun post.

This Flapper dress will be available starting tomorrow at The Feeling. Brought to you in three colors (violet and red are also available) by **BN** designs.

Out for The Home Show from 22769, a really big collection of vintage furniture and accessories.

They would of course look lovely in any Victorian or traditional home, but I had  a little Steampunk cottage that was calling for furniture. I think it fits in quite nicely.

There are some interesting accessories in this release including a beautifully detailed sextant (on the desk in the top photo) and this engine room telegraph.

It works perfectly on my Steampunk Observation Floater. Who knew it needed that to feel complete :D.

Being an aficionado of the eclectic, I crown this wonderfully rendered vintage cash register “my favorite piece” of the collection.

So zip on over to the venues and see what you can find.
