52 WC – Amber & Ash Grey

Instead of trying to create 2 different looks, I decided to do a mash-up this time, which is why the title sounds like a pair of characters from a day-time soap. Amber was the colour of the week for week 14 with Ash Grey for week 15. Amber as a colour name is derived from the material also known as amber, which is commonly found in a range of yellow-orange-brown-red colours; likewise, as a colour it can refer to a range of yellow-orange colours. In English the first recorded use of the term as a colour name, rather than a reference to the specific substance, was in 1500. The first recorded use of ash grey as a colour name in English was in 1374.  Avi:

My garden space…

In Fashion, OMG, Second Life · Tags
Compared to my old place, I now have about 4 times the prim allowance, so I have started to create a cosy garden corner. (It also means that our cats (Emmi’s & mine) can run free, instead of being cooped up in the house all the time.) The little white ‘blob’ in the middle of the picture is my cat, Skimbleshanks. He is named after a cat in T S Eliot’s 1939 published collection of poems, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Just a little further round to the left is a little entertainment area I have set up: Backdrops:
Left : Cwtch – Climbing Ivy Backdrop
Right : Cwtch – Rustic Wedding set Garden decor:

In Fashion, OMG, Second Life · Tags
week 7 – Carrot orange The first recorded use of carrot orange as a colour name in English was in 1684. The word carrot is first recorded in English circa 1530 and was borrowed from Middle French carotte, itself from Late Latin carōta, from Greek καρωτόνor karōton, originally from the Indo-European root *ker- (horn), due to its horn-like shape. In Old English, carrots (typically white at the time) were not clearly distinguished from parsnips: the two were collectively called moru or more (from Proto-Indo-European *mork- “edible root”, cf. German Möhre). Avi:

Builder’s Box – part 2

In this second post on the new subscription box in SL – Builder’s Box – I am featuring the following: Spargel & Shine Homes, Pillows, Serenity Style, Thistle Homes and Maru Kado. First is the Lucero Skyhome from Spargel & Shine Homes. It is the heaviest of all the builds with a Land Impact (LI) of 160! The approximate footprint of the build is 31 x 17 metres. The gold tile gives access to a decorating menu that allows you to change the frosting/privacy levels of the doors and windows, turn on & off the light shadows on the floor of the main room, and to change the colour of the feature wall in the main room (there are 4 pages of colours to choose from!) Next is the Alboran Summer House from Serenity Style. The House has a LI of 44, and the summer tree has a LI of 5 — again perfect for prim restricted plots. The tree comes separate from the house, you can rez just the one like I did or as many as you like. The Manon Skybox from Pillows is very reminiscent of the interiors of Versailles Palace (and other 18th century grand houses!) The skybox has a LI of 118, not bad for a one-room build (but is still on the heavy side if you’re on a prim restricted plot!) From the outside it will appear as a solid black box, but you can see out from the inside.… Read the restSpargel & Shine - Lucero skyhome

Builder’s Box

We all know what a subscription box is, right? You mean something like Luxe Box, Deco{c}rate, BishBox or Powder Pack, right? Well, yes.  Deco{c}rate is purely home decor, Luxe Box is a mix of home decor & female fashion. Builder’s Box is different! As stated on their website: “Builder’s Box is a quarterly (released every 3 months) build-only subscription box packed full of nothing but great homes, skyboxes and other buildings.” If you want to know more, please visit the Builder’s Box website (especially the FAQ page). The first build I want to show is a modern prefab from Aethis Creations. It has a land impact (LI) of 37, which is perfect if you are heavily restricted in the amount of prims you have on your plot. (Size = length 27m, width 15m & height 14m.) Next is the Bordeaux Cottage from Schultz Brothers, which has a LI of 90. Again perfect for a prim-restricted plot. It’s a quaint 2-room cottage, with a large fireplace in the neoclassical style as the feature of the downstairs space.… Read the restAethis Creations

52 WC – Patina / Verdigris

week 4 – Verdigris (or Patina) The name verdigris comes from the Middle English vertegrez, from the Old French verte grez, an alteration of vert-de-Grèce (“green of Greece”).

Verdigris is the common name for a green pigment obtained through the application of acetic acid to copper plates or the natural patina formed when copper, brass or bronze is weathered and exposed to air or seawater over a period of time.
