Autumn

Today is the last day of The Seasons Story. This is a quarterly event and won’t be back until January. The Seasons Story is celebrating their one year anniversary and the participating creators have a lot of free gifts out for you. Above are a few of the things that I picked up from the event. I love the look and fall feel from the apples. The bench (from L’amitie Fall Market) makes me think of taking my shoes off and enjoying a rest under the shade of the trees.

Notting Hill

Notting Hill

Not to long ago I went on a visit to Notting Hill while it was open to the public. The sim is gorgeous. Full of vibrant colors from the leaves welcoming fall. In the middle of Notting Hill is a park for the kids to play in, and a cozy fireplace for the adults to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate by. If you look around back you will find a neat little area to watch movies. At the end of the street is The Village Cafe. And you should know that I love little cafes. The cafe is as inviting as the rest of the sim.

Village Cafe @ Notting Hill

Inside I found pieces from my favorite builder, Apple Fall. There was a also a touch of cuteness from MishMish, baked goods from 8f8, and added elegance from Zaara.

While we are on the subject of cafes and baked goods let me show you these limited edition Spoopy Cupcakes at Atelier Kreslo. These cute cupcakes have little eyeball candies on the top of the yummy looking frosting. These treats were made by flowey. Only available until November 1st! (this spoopy picture was not taken at Notting Hill)

Notting Hill sim. Quite possibly closed to the public.
Only the cupcakes are my items, so I won’t be listing the rest. Though I could probably tell you where to get some of the other items pictured if you are curious.

Eleven years ago today I rezzed in Second Life. I remember flying into buildings and being so embarrassed about it. I landed in the sim Tan where I met Viola Bach, Nick Rhodes, Nicola Escher, Ezhar Fairlight, and Lordfly Digeridoo. These were the people who made the best impression on me to stay in Second Life. Viola Bach made jewelry and had taught me how. I believe that Beryl Greenacre was my first customer. It wasn’t long before I bought land in Tan and set up shop. My store was called Apollo’s Jewelry. Sometime in 2004 my store name changed to Caroline’s Jewelry. I created jewelry from 2003 until 2013. I started with a small parcel to owning many parcels. Then in 2006 I bought my very own sim. Like most creators, I ended up on a lonely platform. My friends quit logging in. I still miss the days of hanging out with my old friends and doing crazy stuff in Second Life. I have great new friends, and I am now out seeing this new world. It has changed drastically for the better, and I look forward to seeing what happens next.

TAG Gacha

TAG! Gacha

TAG Gacha is a new gacha concept that is a lot of fun. You’ll most likely find it a bit laggy since the event just started today. I think the most fun part was trading in the Gachatopia group chat.

The Prizes

I have some of my favorites here. The erratic items look so realistic. The moths/butterflies are actual mesh insects. Not just an image in a frame. The keke bell jars are really pretty and well done. I love the butterflies. Standby made PVC collectible figures that are so freakin cute. The floorplan haunted birdcage is scripted to have the bird swing move and/or bird sounds. Spooky! Boogers made the silly kittycats playing with various objects. I still have tons to share with you. Until tomorrow.. happy gachaing!

Halloween

The Holiday Appreciation Association brings us Havenhollow Returns. You can bid on a date with amazing secondlifers and shop for some Halloween goodies. I picked up this really cute outfit from Tee*fy and Granny’s Cookie Platter from The Secret Store. Both were free. There are many free things and a few things for sale. I tried handing cookies out at Notting Hill. I promise they’re not poisoned, but nobody would take one. You should really go visit the Notting Hill sim before it closes to the public. I believe it may no longer be public around October 18th. The sim is beautiful! You can read more about it here.

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat Event begins October 15th and ends November 5th. Each designer will have one free item and more treats that will be for sale. This looks like a great event for your child avatar.

I am ready for trick or treaters! The treats that I have out for halloween come from the Trunk or Treat event. You’ll find toffee apples, cookies, bat cakes, cinnamon swirls, and candy sticks at my rare candy stall. The path is lit up by PILOT hanging pumpkin lanterns and Little Lamb mason jar lanterns. It looks like someone dropped their collectible card from floweys The Most Famous SL Witches deck on the windsong witch is in welcome mat. Come and get your trick or treats!

I love comfy girly clothes and this outfit is just that. A nice soft sweater paired with a cute skirt. The tee under the sweater is color change or no color. I have paired it with these adorable shoes from Ingenue. Another love of mine are old style keys, and these shoes have a tiny key hanging on the side. The silly but cute hat is from Half Deer at the Candy Fair. Speaking of events, Pink Fuel is having a sale that ends October 26!
