Carnaby Street

Carnaby Street (click for larger view on flickr)

By now you have seen the wonderfully created buildings from Apple Fall. The Carnaby Row Store, Chelsea Townhouse, and Portobello Corner Store all fit very well together. You will find that the Carnaby Row Store has texture change exteriors. The townhouse has 2 rooms on each of the three floors. I have decorated this one with mostly furnishings from Apple Fall, Trompe Loeil, and What Next. It has a few touches from Tres Blah, Mudhoney, 8f8, and dust bunny. Normally I list all credits, however with so many items displayed, I will only be listing credits for the newest releases. You are free to drop by and see the layout for yourself.

Ready for Spring

Ready for Spring

I am so ready for Spring to come back. The soft colors of this season make me happy. Like the colors on this girly shabby chic bed from windsong. You can get this from The House Hunt starting February 1st. It went well with my new texture change shades from Mudhoney, and blue ruffle pouf from PILOT. On the desk are some cute kawaii items from windsong that will be at The Woodlands. Also on the desk is Atelier Kreslo: hyasynth’s Candy – Cookie Bird from the Atelier Kreslo Farewell Bake Sale. So many cute things to pick up at the bake sale.

The Fountain and the Tree

Fountain and the Tree

Pups and I decided that today was a great day for shopping. We stopped by Kustom 9 to pick up something warm. As I stood near the fountain outside of K9, I realized that I looked like the fountain with my !bang pose and the tree in the background with my blonde hair. Pups was a bit chilly without her little coat on. So we headed back to our new home, which we cannot wait to show you soon! We’re still decorating. But you are always welcome to come by for a visit.

Unicorn Magic

Unicorn Magic

I was so excited to hear that Collabor88 would be Unicorn themed this month. Since there are so many great choices at C88, it was a tough decision on which outfit to buy. I recently read that Unicorns were a symbol of purity and grace. OK, I’ll go with that. But, it was also noted that they could only be caught by a virgin. I’m sure nobody on the grid is going to believe that one. We all have unicorns now!

I just knew Alirium would be the right spot to take my pictures.

Attention to Detail

Puppy Love

It is amazing that I can get anything done with these two loving all over each other. They really are best friends. Yet, I was able to bake an apple pie and about to get laundry going. These new Apple Fall pieces can be found at The Chapter Four. What I admire most about Apple Fall’s work is the attention to detail. If you look at the bottom of the pitchers you will find the reflection of those 2 rose petals and the wire. Even the scale has reflections on the glass. The hot apple pie steams realistically. You can almost smell the fresh baked pie.

Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge

Yearbook Smile Challenge

Strawberry Singh has a Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge. You can read all about this fun challenge on her blog. The idea is to smile in a portrait picture, as if it were for your yearbook. Then share it the image. I tried to get them to let me have my cat in the picture like this guy did. That didn’t quite happen.

Avatar in a Box Challenge

Avatar in a Box Challenge

Happy New Year! It was time to sort through old inventory folders since it was the first of the year. Some of the folders were easy to move into a larger folder where it may not be seen again. And others I had a harder time putting away. This led me to ask the question on Plurk, “how old is too old?” Just how long do you keep something in your inventory? Do you wear things more than once? I have found items that have never been worn or rezzed in world. And not just clothing items!

After thinking about these questions for awhile, and while deciding to take down some of my Christmas decorations, I remembered the Avatar in a Box Challenge. I found out about the challenge through Strawberry Singh. Vanessa Blaylock has challenged you, should you choose to accept it, to creatively arrange yourself in a box. Read her blog to find out the details of this challenge. So, I went on to put my holiday dressed avatar in a cardboard box along with the old Christmas decor, and then I set it up in the attic.

Avatar Out of the Box

Although you can’t see it very well in the box, I am wearing a very nice and new outfit. Will it ever see the outside of my inventory again? I hope it does. I do love each piece. Although the jacket and dress weren’t made to be worn together, they fit quite well together. The place that I decided to take pictures at was Katya Valeska’s sim, An Lar Estates. This beautiful place was developed by Neva Crystall, and every view is picture perfect.
