Apple Fall Exclusive Bed

I was so happy to hear that Apple Fall was the guest on The Gacha Show. He is one of my favorite designers in Second Life. The interviewer and audience had great questions for Apple. The chat log will appear on The Gacha Show blog when it is prepared. The show was informative and quite … Continue reading Apple Fall Exclusive Bed

Kirsten and Hiram’s Home Spring/ Summer 2015


     This is probably my favorite spot in my Spring/ Summer Home. Really all of the outdoor courtyard of Trompe Loeil - The Cortona Villas are my favorites. At first this house was a bit daunting because I was not sure what all the rooms and spaces should be because the layout was so different than a traditional house, but after I got into decorating and it came together I really enjoyed this nontraditional space. I won't be crediting every little tiny thing (because it would take pages and pages),  so if you see something that I did not credit and want to know about it please comment below.  I hope you enjoy this pictorial tour of my home!

This is the central living area in the outside courtyard. 


This is an areal view of the courtyard spaces in our home. 


Here are some more outdoor spaces in our courtyard. 


     I finally found a space big enough for my LAQ Decor Kitchen. Here is my kitchen and dining room all eclectic and pastel. 


This is our Master Bedroom. 

     This home is too large to capture all the spaces!… Read the rest

Shipping Crate Studios and Alexi Chase Lounges at Collabor88 April

Bright and bold, and just a bit of DIY – April’s Collabor88 round has a style all its own, and our new Shipping Crate Studios and Alexi Chase Lounges will make it yours as well! Our Shipping Crate Studios take an upcycled shipping container – we’ve included red, blue, green, and unfinished silver metals as well as raw wood – and turn it into a two-room studio with patio, sliding glass door, exterior lighting, stringlights, rooftop garden with included plants, and our *home control system. Worn white painted wood interiors fit almost any decor – but especially the eclectic, one-of-a-kind style you can bring! Only 51 L.I. for versatile use as a tiny home, artist studio, or hideout in the woods or in the city. Kick back on our new leather Alexi Chase Lounge in your choice of bright punk-inspired colors and patterns, or fashionable neutrals that fit in anywhere. Both color packs include multiple models (the punk has an extra model with a skull and crossbones pillow), multiple texture options via menu, and your choice of PG or Adult animations.… Read the restTrompe Loeil - Shipping Crate Studios promo 01

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.

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

Morning Coffee

I do love my morning coffee. Rarely do I get to sit around at a table and drink it. I’m usually rushing off to work with my cup in hand. But on this day, and in this life, I am in the new Hideki Bakery enjoying my Sari Sari Cafe Latte. Plus I found a little extra time to catch up on some reading in a fashion magazine. The Hideki Bakery Chairs have very manly animations in them. Not so great for female avatars. Today I am wearing a completely new outfit that I picked up at Collabor88. I love how soft the Tres Blah sweater looks, and the trendy high waist Secret Store pants. Ingenue always makes shoes that are perfect for most any attire. I adore the little bows placed on the Laura heels. My gorgeous make up is from Glam Affair and my hair is done by Exile. Stop by and see the bakery. Have a pastry and enjoy a cup of joe. Collabor88

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.

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.

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.

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

Tea Time


I feel like I am in a Fairy Tale in this picture which I could not be happier about. Harlow Heslop has decorated her sim for Spring and invited all her blogger friends to come take pictures there. I loved looking around but when I saw this adorable set up I was entranced. It is so cute full of Apple Fall's new gacha set at the current round of Chapter Four inside Lisp's Persimmon Summerhouse. 
I got all 20 stamps on my Enchantment stamp card and went to the prize location to pick up this free Exile hair, Tea Time, that comes with the adorable chipped tea cup in Beauty and the Beast. I love the tea cup so much and you get the hair in a fatpack with ALL the new Exile huds!

My dress is new by Kaithleen's at Thrift Shop 8.0 which ends at the end of the month. You have about a week left to shop the event with the discounted event prices. This dress is a simple basic T-shirt style dress with a lot of great shading and wrinkles in the texture.
