My other house is a TARDIS

The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair wraps up tonight, so if you haven’t been yet, do be sure to hurry on over! I’m not going to blather on because I have stuff to share, and due to being under the weather in RL, I haven’t shared it sooner. So… here’s the goods!

My adorable top is from ISON for Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. The “shirt” layer under it is texture change via a hud. The tights are from SySy’s as part of The Main Event.

Visit with the birds

You have may have heard of this little event called The Arcade. This gorgeous skin is from Glam Affair and is one variation of their Arcade skin Gemma. It’s youthful and gorgeous, and I fell hard for this face. The hair is a subscriber gift from Truth, so if you missed it, check the history on the subscriber in the store to see if it’s still available for redelivery! My eyes are from IKON, and they are from the Spectral eyes line he released at the current round of FaMESHed. They come with an awesome HUD and are definitely worth checking out. Best news is they’re still just L$150! I am only wearing the texture layer here, and for those who aren’t into mesh eyes, you still get all 5 sizes of texture eyes, too.

What a Gem...

This next pic features items from various stores and events, including Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. Full credits below, but the laptop, MP3 player and wires are all from Vespertine for Geeks ‘n’ Nerds.

My other house is a TARDIS

Here’s a closer look… the adorable little kitten curled up on my laptop is from Fabuleux and has holding poses. I just couldn’t resist rezzing her, and we all know cats love laptops.

Not a creature was stirring

More soon!

A quickie tonight before you run out of time to go grab these Fifty Linden Fridays goodies I took pics of today.

These cozy, comfy chairs are from What Next for FLF, and come in four colors with texture change pillows. Also for FLF is the seriously cute tray of cookies and cocoa by Teawood. My snuggly boots are by Apple Fall and you can find them at Shoetopia, which is now officially open! These cute boots are unisex and you get both the male and female versions. They also come in a wide array of colors, many of which are perfect for the impending holiday season!

Stay tuned for more shoegasms!

My Bungalow: Part 1

I fell in love with the Barnesworth Anubis Carraway Bungalow that was part of Collabor88 in August. It’s a big house, so it took me a while to decorate it! I have a LOT of pics for this house, so I decided to break it down into two posts.

I modified this house a good bit, in terms of textures. Some of the walls I just tinted, and some I used wallpaper on. Unlike some mesh houses, that was possible with this one. It took some trial and error, but it was a lot of fun to do. I like customizing houses, so that they feel more “me.” I never used to do this, but my BFF Rosa got me hooked, and now I love it.

So, here are the pics… or at least the first batch. I’ll try to keep my comments to a minimum. As always, please click through the pics to see them bigger in Flickr. You’ll also find notes on each pic with where each item is from. If I missed something (I hope not!) or you want more info, feel free to ask in the comments here or on Flickr, or IM me in world.

Porch

I have to say this… the Carraway comes with several gorgeous built in cabinets and shelves. The best part? They are all functional, meaning they open!

Mantle

I wanted to particularly point out the adorable Friends artwork seen in this next collage because it is an item from Sway’s for the current round of The Arcade, and you only have a few more days to go try to win it!

It's the little things

Live comfortably

This college shows the dining room built in, which I photographed with some doors open, so you could get a better idea for what I mean about what an awesome detail this is.

And everyone was invited

The second post will be coming soon, so keep an eye out for it!

Together For Sway

I love when the SL community bands together to help a fellow resident. Sway Dench, owner of Sway’s, is one such resident who currently needs some support. Sway has a benign tumor in her brain, and needs surgery that will require a long recuperation period. Together For Sway is an event organized by Sway’s friends and fellow designers to help her out during this difficult time. You can read more about her story and the event here. You can also get a sneak peek of the many great items available for purchase at this charity event in Seraphim’s gallery of the event. There are so many amazing goodies at this event… I have more than I’ve even photographed, but since the event ends on December 31st, I didn’t want to wait any longer to post some of my haul.

First off, there is this absolutely gorgeous Noelle cottage from Funky Junk. Yes, I know Christmas is over, but guess what? It will be back next year! Just 11 short months from now (don’t hit me, heh) you can take out this Noelle cottage and know that buying it helped out a fellow SLer during a difficult time. And did I mention that it is gorgeous? Also, you can remove the decor because it’s modify, so it doesn’t have to be Christmas-y. Click through to Flickr and hover for notes on where other items are from, or if you have a question, just ask me in the comments!

Noelle Cottage - Together For Sway

This next pic I took on Christmas Day. Our RL Christmas was nice and quiet, and I wanted to reflect that in SL, too. In RL, we have a woodburning stove, and not a fireplace, but we still had a lovely fire! The fireplace in the Noelle Cottage is all decked out for the holidays, and so I curled up on my What Next sofa and put on a comfy pair of PJs from Cracked Mirror. These are the rare reindeer pajamas from The Arcade. A friend knew I was trying for them and graciously gave me an extra pair she had. I was really excited by that! The hot chocolate set on the table is one of the items you can buy at the event for Sway. It’s from What Next and it’s a Christmas version of their chocolatier set. It’s available in a copy version, or for gifting, a transfer version! Again, click through to the Flickr pic for more info on where things are from.

Snowy Christmas Night

One of my favorite games of all time is Scrabble, so when I saw this piece from Apple Fall for Together For Sway, I knew I had to get it. It’s not interactive, but it’s an awesome piece for decor. I put it on my What Next table and sat down as if waiting to make my word! The skin I am wearing was my Christmas gift to myself… it’s Eleonor from Al Vulo, and I am utterly in love with it! You will definitely see more of this one.

Scrabble

That’s all for now! I have a New Year’s Eve blog post in the works, though, so this is not my last one for 2012!
