The Lovers’ Cottage

I fell in love with the brand new bed Half-Deer released for Collabor88. I wanted to do a super dreamy, frilly Valentine’s type cottage, and the bed was perfect for the room. The Garden Bard Abode from Trompe Loeil was small enough to be cozy for this scene, but has so many windows it would be bright and cheery, too. The calendar is from Pixel Mode, the kitty bed in the corner is from Alouette, the large rug in front of the bed is from brocante and everything else is Half-Deer!

Lovers Cottage

I’m featuring the new Painted Love Collection cats from KittyCatS in this post. If you don’t know KittyCatS, they are breedables (though you can opt to not breed, too) that are truly the best on the grid in my opinion. The KittyCatS team provides the best customer service, and there’s a reason they’ve been around – and relevant – for six long years now! Their website is a great resource if you’re interested in them. This is one of two special collections of kitties that you can buy through March 3rd. My personal favorite in this collection is called Cupid Disarmed. I love the little blue toe pads against the chocolate coloring of this kitten’s feets! His playmate is Birth of Venus, and in the background sleeping in the kitty bed from Alouette you can see two of the Paisley Love kittens. I’m doing a post featuring them next week, so stay tuned for that. But in the meantime, at the end of this post I will share the ad so you can see how cute they are!

Kitten Love

Below you can get a closer look at all five of the kitties available in this collection. From right to left, they are Cupid Disarmed, The Fisherman & The Siren, The Kiss, In Bed The Kiss and Birth of Venus.

The Witch’s Altar

Spellbound has an amazing new set called Black Magic at The Coven. If you haven’t heard of this event, it’s because it’s brand new! This is the first round. The event runs through November 29th. I decided to use the Spellbound set inside the adorable Witch’s Cottage by Violetility, which is also at The Coven. This set has a lot of beautiful pieces, and it’s really well done. I’m not featuring everything here, but the entire set is only $L1200. You can also buy each piece individually. Additionally, there’s an optional HUD for L$20 that will change textures of certain items in the set.

If you’re a role-player or just love fantasy themed items this is a great event that shouldn’t be missed!

Don’t wanna sleep

I love the nap tubs from floorplan for The Epiphany. They’re seriously cute, and look so cozy I wish I had one just like them in RL. They have a jumping animation built in, and this is how I feel right now. Like I’d rather jump on the bed than sleep! We’re leaving for a 1200 mile road trip tomorrow (be back Wednesday night), and I am so excited I’m finding sleep elusive. I decided this would be a perfect way to show off the silly gift Izzie’s released at Geeks ‘N Nerds… googly eyed pasties! There’s also ones you can wear over your eyes. They come in both static and animated versions. My hair is another Geeks ‘N Nerds release, from Olive, and my skin is by Atomic and can be found at The Epiphany!

Don't wanna sleep

I took the photo on one of the docks at Blithe. And now, it’s time for sleeping and vacationing! See soon!

I’ll fly away

When Reign released these ballet slippers and leg warmers for Collabor88’s birthday round, I was thrilled. I’ve wanted good mesh pointe slippers for ages, and these are designed to work with an assortment of mesh bodies as an added bonus. I am wearing mine with Maitreya’s Lara body. Le Fil Casse’s adorable little dress for Kawaii Project seemed like the perfect compliment, and when I saw Infiniti’s Fantasy Gacha Carnival poses, inspiration was born. I went to Blithe (which has really become my favorite place to take pics lately), found the perfect spot and voila!

Meteor Watching

I love the Perseid meteor shower. Every year, weather permitting, I stay up late and try to see a few “shooting stars” go by. I was able to see 3 through a somewhat clouded over sky the other night here in Colorado. I had hoped to see more last night, but the sky was too cloudy. So instead, I settled for creating a cozy scene where I could imagine settling down to watch them in SL. So I set up this gorgeous new set from Cheeky Pea that is available at the Love To Decorate event, and I settled in on my couch of hay bales to watch the skies. I’m wearing Foxes nightie from Collabor88’s birthday round. I bought it in a starry print and it seemed perfect!

Meteor watching

If you get the chance, and they are visible where you live, definitely check out the meteors. It’s a really awesome experience. Well, at least for a nerdy dreamer like myself!

Puppy Dreams

I’ve been a bit creatively blocked recently. RL has been stressful, and I’m sure that’s part of it. So I took about a week because I really just hate to force blogging. It’s inauthentic for me, and I always despise the pics I do if I’m forcing it. I want to love it. I decided to do a home decor scene for you. I find that decorating often helps me “unblock,” and between various events I had plenty to show you.

It’s Collabor88’s 4th birthday, so this round is huge. The theme is Daydream, and there’s so much lovely to be had. You might have trouble getting in, but brace yourself because once you do you’re likely to leave broke (I know I did)! But it’s worth it! I loved these flottante puppies from {anc} and I knew I needed to have a set. I got the cream. The house I’m using is Scarlet Creative’s Collabor88 item, and the journal on the side table with the latte is from Pixel Mode, and also at Collab.

Puppy Dreams

The bed is also from Pixel Mode, along with the nightstand and pitcher, but that is available at Shiny Shabby, which closes on the 15th. The chair, table and book piles are from Cheeky Pea, for Uber’s current round. The pretty vase on the table is Uncertain Smile for Illusion Point, and the candle stick next to the bed is from Paper Moon, also at Illusion Point (which ends August 18th). The adorable jar on the table is by Sway’s for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

Definitely be sure to check out all of these great events… for these releases and plenty more!
