Painting until the sun comes down

New Driftwood set by 8f8 just in time for the summer months.  It goes very well with previous driftwood sets and the Paint Me Summer set. The new set is available at Summerfest.   I’m also showing a new release by Little Branch, the lipstick palms, available at Summerfest as well.

Enjoy ♥

At home with the art of nature

Good morning.  Today I bring you several pictures to show the two newest release by 8f8, which is currently at The Epiphany.  Almost every release has a little story, so I encourage you to visit 8f8 Flickr to read how this collection came about.

So many beautiful pieces to be had.I went for a space that resembled both a personal space centered around nature and art and a shop for the same.

Enjoy ♥

Vista Mar

Good morning.  Back in mid October I blogged a new release from a well known creator in Second Life, especially for those who have been in-world for a long period and had a good knowledge of homes.  Well reBourne is back with a new release that is just as gorgeous as Boracay, the one I blogged then.

Vista Mar is beyond gorgeous.  It’s very spacious throughout the indoors and outdoors and the textures and details are fantastic.  My first picture shows the home without the included vegetation, which are palm trees and some plants.  Though I took also a picture with the vegetation just below so you get a glimpse of what’s included.

I didn’t do as much decorating as I always think a home is so personal to the end user, though I’m sure I’ll be using it for future decor posts.  There is plenty of space for creating spots to relax, near the pools or even spaces for creative outlets, like painting.  Two covered areas on either side that can be for whatever needs you may have.  I was thinking a well stocked bar would be handy.

I’ve included some shots of the rooms upstairs and downstairs so you could see some of the details and textures.

All the details on the house are just below my credits, though I encourage you to go visit as you will only be able to capture its real beauty seeing it up close. 

Last two photos are using a slightly different lighting, though it shows the vegetation that is included.  It’s a rezzing system, that when you click it gives you instructions of whether you want to include the house only without vegetation or with and either sky or ground version.

Now is the time to start planning for that summer home. ♥

Storyteller’s Burrow

Good morning.  It’s been a super crazy kind of morning, so I’m gonna catch my breath taking a few minutes to blog.  If you’ve been in Second Life for a while, then you will recognize the works of this amazing creator.  8f8 has created some of the most spectacular sets that many of us love and wish he would do so again.

The Storyteller’s Burrow collection was released in 2015.  As you can see it’s gorgeous and every piece is unique and has a life on its own.  I hope you love it as much as I do and go visit his store.  You’ll find the complete set there along with other fantastic sets.

I broke down credits by the pictures, so you might see some repeats.  The complete set was not shown.

Enjoy ♥

Beautiful imperfections

Good morning! I’m showcasing a new release by 8f8, which is called Beautiful Imperfections.  There is a story the creator wrote, that I encourage everyone to read and will link it just below.  I think it’s beautiful and serves as a good reminder that you can almost always find the positives in the negatives.

Enjoy ♥
