What lies behind closed doors

Good morning.  My office feels like an ice box so I went to check the temperature and it’s registering 65 °F.  That’s cold for some of us Floridians!  Glad the weather showing in my picture isn’t our norm during the winter months.

Today I’m showcasing a new release by DRD currently at UBER, which ends in a couple of days.  You got plenty of time to go take a look and grab it before it goes back to the mainstore.  Now you may be looking at my picture and thinking its just an apartment complex.  What you don’t know is that it houses a mortuary inside.  It’s a morbid subject I know.  Below is some decor that is part of the set, though plenty more to see, so grab the taxi below to go visit.

Good morning.  I don’t know about you, though come next week after Thanksgiving it will be like a roller coaster ride going down to the end of the year.  I love the holiday season so I’m looking forward to getting into the Christmas decor soon.

For today, I’m showcasing one of the newest releases by Ariskea available at FaMESHed.  The Kuche set is the table, chairs and several decor pieces.  I put it together with some of the recent previous releases by KraftWork.  The Taylor’s shelf and clutter along with the rack and clutter set. Both sets can be found at the mainstore.

Enjoy. ♥

The first snow

My first snow for the Second Life winter season.  I’m showcasing a new house by {moss&mink| currently out at FaMESHed.  It has 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, a large living area, and a sun room.  It includes hardwood flooring, French doors, and accordion-style doors throughout the house with porch/patio access. The bridge is from Dutchie and can also be found at the event.

Enjoy! ♥

Mountain cabins

Happy Saturday morning!  It felt so good to sleep in today.  It’s also chilly once again here and I’m drinking coffee.  If you’ve read my blog long enough I’ve probably mentioned I am not a coffee drinker, only when it’s cold.  While it’s not the kind of chill in your bones I need something to warm me up weather — I was just in the mood, especially if I drown it with hazelnut cream.  It’s sweet, warm and just perfect for me.

This is my last post for the next couple of weeks and I’m showcasing another new home, this one is the Ellison Mountain Cabin Home by Trompe Loeil. It’s available at UBER and some details from creator below and check out their Flickr here.

Have fun everyone — and back soon! ♥

A mountaintop estate that fits the entire family awaits you at the end of a leaf-covered rustic road – the Ellison Mountain Cabin embraces you with the warmth of the season!

The Ellison Mountain Cabin is a log and stone structure with a long low silhouette reminiscent of a mountain range. Front and back partially-covered porches welcome you home with lots of space for seating and decorating. Make a grand entrance into the oversized, open floor plan kitchen/living room area with soaring cathedral ceilings and a central fireplace with roaring birch fire – from there, settle into one of the 3 private rooms, fit for your choice of bedrooms, office space, or washroom. Can’t decide? Take in the country air from the sunroom with its own private entrance! Sunroom windows feature glass, screened, and shuttered settings while the rest of the home features our privacy window settings. Exterior lighting, our *home control system, and 4 exterior colors – Maple Red, Slate Blue, Hunter Green, and Bark Brown – round out the features. Footprint is approximately 42.5 meters by 31.4 meters.

Plus, the matching Snow Add-On is ready for those early mountain snowfalls! Only at Uber’s October round!

 

Westport

The weather forecast said it be chilly today.  It was 56°F when I walked out of the house this morning.  It felt good.  I’m ready for sweater weather, warm hot chocolate and snuggling under the covers.

Today is also a new month and you know what that means, a fresh round of new events.  I guess now would be a good time to tell you that I’m taking a blogger break for 2 weeks.  I still have one more picture that I will be posting, but after that I won’t post until after November 14th or thereabouts.  I just need a break.  Real life has been hectic lately and I’ve been blogging consistently and so a break sounds good right about now.

In the meantime check out the newest release by Onsu.  The Westport is another huge home that provides room for a large family, entertaining or just enough room to dance around in.  The details can be found below the credits and/or visit the Onsu Flickr.

Enjoy!

ChatuChak

One of the many reasons that people are drawn to Second Life is the ability to harness your creativity.  Everyone has some creative gene.  The trick is knowing how to bring it out.  For some it’s fashion, others its writing, photography, decorating, role-playing, or in this case also using your skills to put together beautiful sims.

ChatuChak has been open to the public for a few weeks now.  In my own humble opinion, I think it’s a gorgeous sim that has many beautiful spots, some quite photogenic.  I might be a little bias as I know the owners.

Though seriously the ability to do something of this magnitude is not easy.  Both are extremely talented and their love of doing this just for fun and offer it to the residents of Second Life is really an act of kindness.

The theme is capturing some of the essence of Thailand.  I hope you pay a visit and enjoy the ambiance.  I took pictures from a certain angle as I like to see things from a different perspective when I’m doing photography rather than showcasing home and garden decor.  I also used my own windlights rather than used the region one.  Make sure you turn on sounds.

I love the amount of detail that goes into their projects.  Pay a visit before it’s gone.  They move pretty quickly on to the next project, so these glimpse of another world are just that.

Check out both Fred and Lotus work on Flickr — they are super talented in many ways.  ♥
