Mossy Daybreak

Early in the morning, before you even get out of bed, the fairies are dancing around the meadows. They tell stories of playing chase with birds and reading books with turtles. These fairies sing to the flowers to wake them up for you and I to enjoy throughout the day. These are the fairies of the mossy meadows. I’d really love for you to stop by to take a look around the greenhouse and sit with the fairies. SLURL Decor:

The Artist

We may never see the eyes behind this easel. I imagine being the person who made the pictures posted on this easel. Every day taking it all in. Maybe play a song every once in a while. People pass by here all of the time. They’re either looking for the metro, which is closed and is a story in itself, or strolling by for a bite or some shopping. Whatever the case, he tries to get them to notice his art by playing the guitar. Hoping for a sale or a tip so that he can buy dinner. Or maybe he just enjoys art and this is simply his pastime. After writing this I found a picture on flickr that is exactly what I imagined this artist doing. Check out Sunny George’s picture featuring this set and the rest of his stunning artwork. The attention to detail on Apple Fall products is one of the reasons I enjoy collecting them. Yes, those are individual strings on the guitar. Perfect reflections are seen on the bottles, wing nuts not forgotten on the easel, and splatters of paint on the wood.… Read the restSubway Artist

Fine Wine

Apple Fall has a new Al Fresco dining set at Shiny Shabby for March. Here I have the parasol, table, chair, and wine set. I think it goes well with the 8f8 Primavera in Toscana houses from The Arcade. Apple Fall has also made seven new poses for the chairs. These poses are pretty well done, and a welcomed addition. Visit this location here on Lo Lo. Shiny Shabby event March 20- April 15

Upstairs

For some reason I seem to get more faves/likes and views when I do decor posts than fashion. I don’t usually think that I need a new house and furniture as much as I do a new outfit. At least I tell myself that. Actually, I probably actually change my house and furniture just as often. I do enjoy doing these kinds of posts. But I do wonder if I should Only do decor posts. One of my favorite sets right now is the 8f8 Primavera in Toscana set from The Arcade. I have heard people complain that 8f8 sets are just too large. But think of it, you get the houses and all of the furnishings for just under L$2,000. That is unheard of if you were to go buy each individual piece from a store. Of course to come under this price means you got each piece for L$50, and you didn’t over pay for a rare item. The Arcade is open until the end of this month. But don’t worry if you can’t get all of the pieces there. I usually find missing items at yard sales. Sometimes for well below pull price.… Read the resttoscana morning

Little Italy (in my backyard)

Anytime is a good time for tea and dessert. I am loving the 8f8 Toscana set from The Arcade. Erratic’s An English Afternoon tea set goes perfectly with it. I added little touches from dust bunny, anc, BoOgErS, and Zaara that compliment the sets. Put on your white gloves and join me for a spot of tea. This set is going to be sitting out for a bit.

Cake and Flowers

Two of my favorite things are even better when together. Windsong and Dust Bunny collaborated together on this super pretty cake and paper butterflies. These are at The Chapter Four. Also from Windsong for The Neighborhood is this night table with books and caged candles. They both have several color options changeable by hud. The delilah chair and babybreath vase are from Dust Bunny at The Arcade. Expect to see a post showing all of the goodies that I picked up there. The Chapter Four

Dreamer

The theme for this round of One Word is Fairytales. I felt that Windsong’s items for the event were dreamy. The candles have a script in them that makes them bob up and down a tiny bit. The look just like they are floating. I’ve put them in my Pilot romantic bathtub that came from The Arcade a few rounds ago. You’ll also find the Windsong mirror and divider at One Word. The divider allows you to add a picture to it. I’ve put one from when I was visiting Black Swan years ago.

Things are Rosey

Blithe is a new and well designed sim that is open to the public. This is a great sim for hanging out and taking pictures by yourself, with friends, or a loved one. You may have been to or heard of it’s neighboring sim that houses the The Pixel Bean Coffee House. Harlow Heslop has been hard at work making this a carefree and happy place for all to visit. I chose to show off my new look at Blithe. No21 event just opened up on February 21st. I was happy to find more spring like outfits. Here I am all ready for a spring cupcake party at Blithe in this fun Atomic Rosey Posey dress. In each set the sweater top comes in 3 colors and the skirt in 2. The colors are changed by a hud. Lamb created my hairstyle named Birdy. I love how cute and carefree the cut and style is. The gorgeous Yoshiko heels are from Ingenue and can be found at the Creepy Kawaii Fair. These are made for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies/feet. Add your pictures of Blithe to the flickr pool.

Room Additions

I’ve shown you this room before. But, since Collabor88 opened I have added a few new things to it. First is the Trompe Loeil Amelia Loveseat. It comes in three colors and they are loaded full of animations. Also, the pillows are texture change. I really love this piece. Above the loveseat is a Theosophy Beaumaris Mirror. I can see this mirror being used in several different room settings. The gorgeous curtains are from Half Deer. The roses on it are color changing, which makes it perfect for matching your bed set. MishMish and her cute little bears in the suitcase sitting on a bench are irresistible. Dust Bunny collaborated with her on this cute bear set. One last thing I am showing you here is my Schadenfreude Deer in the Forest of Leaves book. I could never cut a book up like that irl. But for SL it is cute and no real books were harmed. The other things in the picture have been blogged before, but I’ve listed them again in case you missed it. Happy dreaming!… Read the restRoom Addition

Flowers

(click for full image) Flowers tend to bring happiness into the picture. I have a spot on my sim that I am going to always keep flowers and green grass on. This is my happy place. Winter is fun for a little while, but it can also bring the mood down. Collabor88 just opened and there are so many pretty things filled with love. I chose the Clawtooth Erica hair because it was so darling with the loose braid and bow. The Foxes Wallflower Dress looks so soft and delicate. And the Cecily flats in blush from Ingenue goes perfectly with this outfit. The poses are from !bang and add to the girly cuteness of the image. It all says Love. What am I wearing?

Breakfast in Bed

Dust Bunny and Windsong have collaborated to bring us this super cute Valentine’s Tray at The Chapter Four. I put this breakfast tray on my new Windsong Gretchen’s Shabby Bed. The heart shaped pancakes are just adorable! See this post for a look at the bed, which can be found in the House Hunt for just 20L.

Carnaby Street

(click for larger view on flickr) By now you have seen the wonderfully created buildings from Apple Fall. The Carnaby Row Store, Chelsea Townhouse, and Portobello Corner Store all fit very well together. You will find that the Carnaby Row Store has texture change exteriors. The townhouse has 2 rooms on each of the three floors. I have decorated this one with mostly furnishings from Apple Fall, Trompe Loeil, and What Next. It has a few touches from Tres Blah, Mudhoney, 8f8, and dust bunny. Normally I list all credits, however with so many items displayed, I will only be listing credits for the newest releases.

Ready for Spring

I am so ready for Spring to come back. The soft colors of this season make me happy. Like the colors on this girly shabby chic bed from windsong. You can get this from The House Hunt starting February 1st. It went well with my new texture change shades from Mudhoney, and blue ruffle pouf from PILOT. On the desk are some cute kawaii items from windsong that will be at The Woodlands. Also on the desk is Atelier Kreslo: hyasynth’s Candy – Cookie Bird from the Atelier Kreslo Farewell Bake Sale. So many cute things to pick up at the bake sale. Taken in the new Apple Fall: Carnaby Row Store (The Liaison Collaborative)

The Fountain and the Tree

Pups and I decided that today was a great day for shopping. We stopped by Kustom 9 to pick up something warm. As I stood near the fountain outside of K9, I realized that I looked like the fountain with my !bang pose and the tree in the background with my blonde hair. Pups was a bit chilly without her little coat on. So we headed back to our new home, which we cannot wait to show you soon! We’re still decorating. But you are always welcome to come by for a visit.

Unicorn Magic

I was so excited to hear that Collabor88 would be Unicorn themed this month. Since there are so many great choices at C88, it was a tough decision on which outfit to buy. I recently read that Unicorns were a symbol of purity and grace. OK, I’ll go with that. But, it was also noted that they could only be caught by a virgin. I’m sure nobody on the grid is going to believe that one. We all have unicorns now! I just knew Alirium would be the right spot to take my pictures. Poses: !bang Stands 465-469 The Seasons Story
These poses were perfect for what I wanted.

Attention to Detail

It is amazing that I can get anything done with these two loving all over each other. They really are best friends. Yet, I was able to bake an apple pie and about to get laundry going. These new Apple Fall pieces can be found at The Chapter Four. What I admire most about Apple Fall’s work is the attention to detail. If you look at the bottom of the pitchers you will find the reflection of those 2 rose petals and the wire. Even the scale has reflections on the glass. The hot apple pie steams realistically. You can almost smell the fresh baked pie. Apple Fall (AF) @ The Chapter Four

Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge

Strawberry Singh has a Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge. You can read all about this fun challenge on her blog. The idea is to smile in a portrait picture, as if it were for your yearbook. Then share it the image. I tried to get them to let me have my cat in the picture like this guy did. That didn’t quite happen. Credits:
