#MyBelgravia

Holiday weekends are great and mine certainly was, though this morning I’m definitely feeling the weight of all that I ate yesterday alone. It’s a new day and a new week.  Happy Monday.

It’s been a long while since I’ve participated in any contests and yet in the last 48 hours I’m participating in two. The first was the picture I did yesterday showcasing items from Redeux.  It’s not a new event, it’s been ongoing for about 2 years and it’s bi-monthly.  I enjoy it because it has a lot of fantasy related items new and old.

Today’s picture is showcasing the newest release by Apple Fall.  The Belgravia skybox is simple in that it is a box with a few rooms.   What makes this unique and absolutely gorgeous is the crown molding and the small details you find throughout.  As part of it’s release a contest is being held on how you would decorate it.  You were not limited to just using the creators own designs, though I opted to because they’re just fabulous.  I dug deep into my inventory to find everything including some very old gachas.

Hope you enjoy!

Childhood treasures that fill our memories

Good morning!  I’ve had a busy week.  Therefore, I’m glad it’s also the weekend… so TGIF!

Today, I bring you some delightful decor that might make some of you reminisce about your childhood.  It certainly evokes memories of years past and makes me fondly recall times we spent at my paternal grandmother’s home.  Her home was filled with vintage treasures.

I would love to stay and reminisce with you all, but sadly I’m working so I have to cut it short.

Have a fabulous day!

Aries

There are so many events that I personally have no clue about. Zodiac turned up suddenly, an it is… “a new monthly event that caters to your unique zodiac sign”.  That means its all about Aries this month and that’s my sign as I just celebrated a birthday a few days ago. I’m definitely going to go check this event out soon.  You can find the Aries ram head and table by MudHoney at the event.

I’m also showcasing one of the newest collections by Loft & Aria, the Lavinia set is just perfect for this season as you get to spend more time outdoors.   The semi-modular seating comes in a few pieces so that you can decorate to your liking and the space you have to work with.  Texture choices and additional decorative pieces accompany this set.

I’m also using one of the newest homes by DaD-virtual living- which I am loving.  The Riverstone house is just gorgeous and makes for a great lake house.  Everything that is included along with everything else used is listed below.

Enjoy!

I’m lost out at sea in all this blue

After a hellish week of dealing with sinusitis I am so glad to almost be feeling normal again even if I woke with a sore throat this morning.  I hope everyone is enjoying the warmer days and the freshness of spring.

Today I’m showcasing items from Bloom, which is an annual event that features all the beauty of spring.  Everything shown is listed below.  I am also showing a cute little kitten in a cup by Black Bantam out now at the Access event.

Also, some great news, especially if you’re a blogger in Second Life and tend to use a lot of items in your scenes. Kess Crystal, another fabulous home and garden blogger and Heidi Hoyes have come up with and designed a great tool called “Grab My Credits” to do just that, grab your credits.  I know its proven to be an asset for me, saving me time in getting them all myself.  Now you won’t see much difference in the way I post my credits, though getting the information is the key.  I am going to link you to the website for a text tutorial on how to use this tool and also Kess just did a video on her blog showing how to use as well.  To keep up to date with Grab My Credits go follow the HeikeTech Facebook page.

Have an amazing day!
