There is no place like home.

I can’t remember the last time I have showcased a home, so here we go with the latest release by Trompe Loeil.  The Padget Modern Farmhouse is a great size for any family and for those who love to decorate.   It’s got front and back stone tile patios, an open-plan room, where you will find a stone brick and wood panel trim fireplace.  It’s got an optional kitchen unit, which I really like as you can swap it out at any time you want a kitchen makeover.

Full details, visit FaMESHed to see it in person or grab all the details at Trompe Loeil Flickr.   For my landscape I used some past releases by Fanatik, the rock boulders and land shapes, so  grab the information and links below.

Enjoy ♥

Out in the country…

Happy Friday everyone.  It’s been a little crazy in my world lately with ongoing and new projects, blogging and everything else that comes up in between.  It’s nice to find time to sit back and relax.  Most often when I start to decor something, that’s my ultimate goal — creating a space that is comfortable, pleasing to the eye and makes me want to sit and enjoy.

This outdoor setting is a little of that.  I’m featuring the Ascot Stable, a previous release by Fanatik, that sits around 61 prims.  It’s beautifully detailed in wood and metal with doors that open and close.  I’m also featuring a recent release by Ariskea, the ladder with the apple decor.  Great pieces for your fall decor, or even year round for indoor or outdoor.

I’m also featuring Amitie and FINCA.  The haybales set, which includes poses and decor set by Amitie is currently at Equal10 and the rolled up haybales are by FINCA at the Fall Festival Event.

Enjoy ♥

Fortify yourself with contentment, for this is an impregnable fortress…

Title quote by Epictetus. 

Showcasing the castle builder kit by Fanatik, which has 42 building pieces, matching stone textures in a few variations. Plus if you need a little help, there are pre-built samples to help you build your own fortress.

Most often with landscapes I end up playing with a few lights and editing at least two photos.  I liked both, so below you can see the other version.

Enjoy ♥

Paradise Resort

I don’t change homes in Second Life as often as I did when I first started.  In the early days I explored every mainstore that sold homes and decor.  I tried everything from a skybox that was nothing more than a square to some really huge homes.  While I loved a lot of the homes that I decorated, my very favorite was an Italian villa that had high ceilings and had a lift in it to get to the second floor.  It was enormous and had a huge wraparound tiled floor that extended to a wall with a balcony that would sit against the ocean.  It was pure fun and eventually lead me to start this journey of blogging home and garden.

Today I bring you the newest release by DaD-virtual living-, the paradise resort, that has 5 rooms with tiled floors and sliding bamboo doors that separate each room.  Some of the details are the large windows that open up, as seen in the photo.  I have only one open.  It has double doors on the other side, and the straw roof.  The home with deck has a land impact of 202, and footage of 39×51.  I’m using decor by KraftWork, the nautical bar set, which is the outdoor table and stools with some decor pieces.  Then also items from the seaside set, which are the bench and pillows, plates on the wall of the house, potted olive tree, among other small pieces.  All great pieces to be used all year long.

The other items being featured are the palm trees by :Fanatik: that come in various shapes, and in natural or vibrant looks.  Very realistic and must haves if you like to landscape your homes for the seasons.   The wild flowers in front of the palm trees are from Heart, and are called angel trumpets.  They are just so pretty, and really wonderful to use to brighten up your landscaping.

Enjoy ♥

The Windburrow

It is a quick one today.  I’m showcasing a new release by HISA out today at the Wizarding Faire.  It’s a charming home, with a land impact of 444.  You get lots of rooms, and vaulted ceilings, rustic walls, stained glass windows and exposed wooden beams.  It’s worth checking out.  I’m using the rustic walls from Fanatik, which were great for the look that I wanted to create.  I’m also using the steps from the land shapes set.  You have lots of options on how to utilize the items, so really great buy.   The wild grasses and field of flowers are from Finca.

As always, everything used is below.

Enjoy ♥

Summer camping

One of the things that I miss about having a homestead from my early days on Second Life is the ability to change the terrain environment. I really enjoy the parcel that I’m on now, it’s peaceful and has been absolutely perfect for my needs. The only drawback is not being able to change the terrain. Luckily, one of the ways to go around this is by using land shapes. Not only has it been perfect to hide some of the terrain, it’s also great to build an ideal landscape with different shapes such as rocks, ramps, hills or slopes.

Today I’m featuring the rock walls from Fanatik’s land shapes package. The set has everything you could ever want to transform your land into something unique and beautiful. It has beach rocks, boulders, erosion, islands, ramps, slopes, stairs, terraces and the rock walls. They all have texture change options, which is really a wonderful option for those who like to change their land with the seasons. You can find this land shapes set at the main store. You truly will not be disappointed.

My picture evolved from also wanting to showcase the trees and teepee from FINCA. The theme of summer camping was easy to imagine as it’s the name (Summer Camp), of the event where these items can be found. Teepee has color options by Hud. This would be my vision for a wonderful camping trip.

Enjoy ♥
