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

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. 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.

Take me to Jodhpur

The Arcade Gacha Events returns March 1st and Zaara is taking us all to Jodhpur, India this round. Jodhpur is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is often referred to as the “Blue City” due to the vivid blue-painted houses that surround the infamous Mehrangarh Fort. It is one of […] The post Take me to Jodhpur by Strawberry Singh appeared first on StrawberrySingh.com.

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

I memorized every line

Sooo much new stuff in this picture and so little time to write about it all! First of all I’m wearing the Freja shorts from Pixicat, that were recently released for We <3 RP. Of course, they're not just fit for RP purposes, but all sorts of wear! They also come with the option of embroidered flowers on the front, that you can turn on and off with the HUD. I adore the high waist and vintage style cut, he frill adds that little bit more of a feminine touch too. I added the new roundneck top from Coco that's out at FaMESHed. What's great about this time is that it comes with cuffs and a collar as separate attachments. That means there's a ton of ways to wear it. I've been wearing it with just cuffs around the grid, but decided to keep it simple and plain for this shot. I layered it with the Bejewelled Cardigan from Fishy Strawberry also out at FaMESHed. The hair is a classic updo, which I only found out about because Miss Foxtrot Plurked pictures of herself in it about 100 times.… Read the rest.i memorized every line

Slumber Kitties

These adorable kittens look ready for a slumber party. I can never resist the gorgeous Apple Fall items or pretty much any kittens. And in this Chapter Four event they offer both.

This includes the paper hearts in pastels and darks, raggedy love wall decor, and the smitten mocha tray. The Chapter Four

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.

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.

Make A New Plan, Stan!

My parents were already married and had 2 kids by 1966, so they never got to be free lovin' hippies. Plus it really wasn't in their nature, being the more clean cut, responsible type. But they certainly enjoyed them when they encountered them and by the time I came around, they raised me on some great music and to be their little free spirit. So this small area I've put together using some items from an upcoming event makes me happy! [And made me put on some Simon & Garfunkel music!]




Perfect 10 is a new home and garden event coming up on February 1st! It features home and garden designers alongside full perm creators and replaces The Designer Warehouse event, if you were familiar with that one. The items will be half price or less, and exclusive to the event. There will also be some gacha to play, for those of you who are gacha addicts! I don't think there is a theme for this upcoming first round, but a few of the designers who were kind enough to give advance copies of items seemed to be in the bohemian spirit.… Read the restStyle - Make A New Plan, Stan!

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
