Mossy Daybreak

Mossy Daybreak

Early in the morning, before you even get out of bed, the fairies are dancing around the meadows. They tell stories of playing chase with birds and reading books with turtles. These fairies sing to the flowers to wake them up for you and I to enjoy throughout the day. These are the fairies of the mossy meadows.

The Artist

Subway Artist

We may never see the eyes behind this easel. I imagine being the person who made the pictures posted on this easel. Every day taking it all in. Maybe play a song every once in a while. People pass by here all of the time. They’re either looking for the metro, which is closed and is a story in itself, or strolling by for a bite or some shopping. Whatever the case, he tries to get them to notice his art by playing the guitar. Hoping for a sale or a tip so that he can buy dinner. Or maybe he just enjoys art and this is simply his pastime. After writing this I found a picture on flickr that is exactly what I imagined this artist doing. Check out Sunny George’s picture featuring this set and the rest of his stunning artwork.

The attention to detail on Apple Fall products is one of the reasons I enjoy collecting them. Yes, those are individual strings on the guitar. Perfect reflections are seen on the bottles, wing nuts not forgotten on the easel, and splatters of paint on the wood. Some think the work is too realistic, and others are as fond of it as I am.

Fine Wine

Apple Fall has a new Al Fresco dining set at Shiny Shabby for March. Here I have the parasol, table, chair, and wine set. I think it goes well with the 8f8 Primavera in Toscana houses from The Arcade. Apple Fall has also made seven new poses for the chairs. These poses are pretty well done, and a welcomed addition.

Upstairs

For some reason I seem to get more faves/likes and views when I do decor posts than fashion. I don’t usually think that I need a new house and furniture as much as I do a new outfit. At least I tell myself that. Actually, I probably actually change my house and furniture just as often. I do enjoy doing these kinds of posts. But I do wonder if I should Only do decor posts.

One of my favorite sets right now is the 8f8 Primavera in Toscana set from The Arcade. I have heard people complain that 8f8 sets are just too large. But think of it, you get the houses and all of the furnishings for just under L$2,000. That is unheard of if you were to go buy each individual piece from a store. Of course to come under this price means you got each piece for L$50, and you didn’t over pay for a rare item. The Arcade is open until the end of this month. But don’t worry if you can’t get all of the pieces there. I usually find missing items at yard sales. Sometimes for well below pull price.

toscana morning

I showed you the downstairs and outside in a previous post. Today I’m inviting you upstairs. I really love the balconies, and I can just imagine a real Tuscan view. The rooms are large and very open. You could put the bathroom up here along with the bedroom if you choose to.

toscana morning

In my pictures I imagined waking up to the bright morning sun in my comfy bed. I see my clothes tossed on the floor from a long fun night. After taking in the breathtaking view, I grab my keys and lipstick before heading out on a new adventure.

I do love my morning coffee. Rarely do I get to sit around at a table and drink it. I’m usually rushing off to work with my cup in hand. But on this day, and in this life, I am in the new Hideki Bakery enjoying my Sari Sari Cafe Latte. Plus I found a little extra time to catch up on some reading in a fashion magazine. The Hideki Bakery Chairs have very manly animations in them. Not so great for female avatars. Today I am wearing a completely new outfit that I picked up at Collabor88. I love how soft the Tres Blah sweater looks, and the trendy high waist Secret Store pants. Ingenue always makes shoes that are perfect for most any attire. I adore the little bows placed on the Laura heels. My gorgeous make up is from Glam Affair and my hair is done by Exile.

Toscana Afternoon

Anytime is a good time for tea and dessert. I am loving the 8f8 Toscana set from The Arcade. Erratic’s An English Afternoon tea set goes perfectly with it. I added little touches from dust bunny, anc, BoOgErS, and Zaara that compliment the sets. Put on your white gloves and join me for a spot of tea.

Cake and Flowers

Two of my favorite things are even better when together. Windsong and Dust Bunny collaborated together on this super pretty cake and paper butterflies. These are at The Chapter Four. Also from Windsong for The Neighborhood is this night table with books and caged candles. They both have several color options changeable by hud. The delilah chair and babybreath vase are from Dust Bunny at The Arcade. Expect to see a post showing all of the goodies that I picked up there.
