Puppies’ Paranormal Pizza Party!

One Autumnal night, Seamus the shiba inu found himself the unwilling pup sitter of his three younger siblings, Shawn, Shannon and Shelia. You see, the pups had discovered their house was haunted! Their human begged them to come spend the night with her outside in the tent, but the pups had other ideas! A paranormal pizza party with their new friends! So, Seamus was left in charge of the others. Sheila ordered the pizzas. Shannon tried to dress up as a ghost herself, but it didn’t quite work out as planned. Shawn poked his head out the window to try to get one of the other ghosts to join them inside… and after consuming a hearty helping of candy corn, Seamus fell asleep with a good book on the spooky rug in front of the pumpkin fireplace. He hadn’t the heart to tell Shawn, Shannon and Sheila that ghosts don’t eat, but he trusted his siblings were up to the task of devouring the pizzas on their own!

It was a fantastical night, except maybe for the shibas’ poor human, who was more than a tiny bit frightened of all the paranormal partying. But even she managed a good night’s sleep, tucked inside her cozy, starry tent.

It was an autumn night not soon to be forgotten!

The end.

Puppies' Paranormal Pizza Party

Cheeky Pea released this incredible Halloween Kitsch set for Uber’s new round, which was a Designer’s Choice edition. It’s absolutely adorable, and I’m not using all of it here, either. Definitely check it out for your Halloween decorating needs.

The pups are half Theosophy and the other two are Half-Deer. Both are available at the current round of The Arcade, which is coming to close soon!

This beautiful, one room cottage is a new release from DaD Designs for The Fantasy Collective. There are two versions of The Bayou Cottage, and one includes a deck. Sadly, I live in the sky so I am using the version without. However, what I really love about this house is how versatile it feels. While I can absolutely imagine it in a bayou, it works well in my mountain country inspired sky, too. The beautiful, pumpkin filled fireplace is a Collabor88 release from Pilot, and I absolutely had to have it.

Out the window, you can see me, sleeping in one of Sway’s adorable tents from The Arcade. This is one of the rares, but they’re all beautifully done and definitely must haves! I am wearing new releases from Neve by coldLogic. I will be blogging this outfit in full detail later this week, but the top is breeze, in the lively option and the leggings are zeezee, also in the lively version. Stay tuned to see a full, closer snap of this in a few days!

Stormy September

Today I want to show you an adorable little shop from Roawenwood for the Home & Garden Expo. This is the “single” store version, but there are bigger versions, too. And honestly, though designed as a storefront, I think some of you more creative types out there could easily make one of these work as a living space, too. I’m calling this post and this pic Stormy September because that’s how this month has felt for me in RL… but it’s almost over and October is one of my very favorite months in the year. So I am really looking forward to putting this September behind me and moving into the heart of Autumn, my favorite season of all.

Stormy September

The Home & Garden Expo ends on Sunday, so if you haven’t been by yet, please make sure to check it out. It benefits a great cause and with 9 sims there’s really something for just about everyone!

Home & Garden Expo!

The annual Home & Garden Expo benefitting Relay For Life is officially open. There are a lot of goodies, spread out over 9 sims, so plan ahead and make use of the sim maps, which you can download here.

This is the new Darcy Cottage from Funky Junk, which is available at the HGE. The living room is adorable, with sunbeams coming through the windows (they can be removed, if desired). I am using Apple Falls RFL item, this beautiful wingback chair, in two of the 7 colors you get for just L$250. The Kiss & Hug sign is from Revival, and is also at the HGE.

Autumn Living

The HGE has allowed direct landmarks to the stores, which I think is a fabulous idea for such a large event. Below you’ll find the slurls for the stores featured in this post.

Revival

Be sure to stop by and check out this amazing event. It’s really quite epic, and if that’s not enough, it’s also for a great cause.

A place for dreaming

Now that it’s gotten a bit easier to get into The Arcade, I wanted to share some lovely home decor items you can find there. First up, tarte. This gorgeous Autumn Cottage is the rare, but every piece in this set is lovely.

Autumn Cottage

On my porch is one of What Next’s cute and comfy chairs, along with a rocking chair and knitting basket from vespertine. The doormat, complete with sleeping kitty, is from Sway’s. All of these items (not the pumpkin!) are available at The Arcade.

Cozy Porch

Inside, the walls and ceiling have an old, aged feeling that, if it happened in your RL house would probably be cause for repair work, but in SL it’s a lovely effect that creates a warm, lived-in feeling! This gorgeous bed is also by tarte, but it is a mainstore release. My sleeping puppy, is the Ispachi Florian puppy that is just too cute for words. And it breathes. It’s utterly adorable. The slippers are also from the Ispachi set, as is the chest against the wall by the windo. I’ve placed another of What Next’s chairs in the corner. All the rest of the items are from tarte’s set.

A room made for dreaming

Sweet Tart

It’s been a hectic, crazy few weeks in my RL, which is why I have been quiet. We’re getting ready to travel to visit family later this week. I’m really excited to see my four year-old nephew. He’s literally counting down the days til our visit. I’m riding that excitement to get through this visit because, if I’m honest, the traveling will be physically brutal (air travel and my body aren’t friends), and the rest of the family stuff is just stressing me out!

But I can put all that aside for now to show you some sweet treats! The Theme Park’s Sweet Tart Edition is under way, and Embody has this cute, flirty couple prop pose for women. I am wearing a dress from u.f.o for Collabor88, along with the gorgeous new Coral skin from Glam Affair that debuted at Collab. My cute shoes are also at Collab, from fri.day. My partner in crime (aka my alt) is wearing new items from coldLogic and the recent Gos Boutique group gift heels.

Sugar Rush

Be sure to stop by The Theme Park and Collabor88 to check out all of the goodies. There’s a lot of cute to be had at both events!

Spring at The Arcade

It seems that spring has arrived, at least if The Arcade designers have their say in it! You’ll find lots of things “spring” if you stop by, assuming you haven’t already.

One of my favorites is the Happy Gardener set from Pixel Mode. I love the details on this set, right down to the garden hose!

Garden Happiness

I wanted to show some of the details, particularly on two of the three rares in this set. The toolbox and the seed box are both rares. The birdhouse I just love so much (shocker, I’m sure, given my name and blog title!). The potting table is the third rare.

The Gardener's Treasures

Sway’s released this adorable little summer house, the fence set and the cute little garden gnomes as part of The Challenge recently. I thought they’d make a perfect little scene for a couple of other Arcade items. First, the gorgeous rare bicycle from Lark’s Farmer’s Market set, and also the clothesline from Tres Blah’s Spring Living set.

You can see full details on all the Arcade items using the shopping guide located here.

More Arcade from me soon! I’m still sorting through all my winnings!

Grandmother’s Room

So, if you haven’t been to Enchantment yet you still have time. This fairytale inspired event runs through February. One of the awesome items you can grab there is this beautiful bed from Alouette. The sewing items are part of Dysfunctional Design’s new Fabric Shop for We Love Roleplay!

Here’s a better look at the carved headboard.
