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!

Hello 2015!

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m having a hard time with the whole “wow, it’s another new year already feeling!” But ready or not, 2015 is here! So I threw myself a party for the new year, complete with a buffet and a sparkly dress and some fabulous shoes and jewels and a gorgeous new skin from Glam Affair available at the new round of Uber. My 2015 sign is from Sway’s. It includes built in poses that are a lot of fun, but not very dress friendly, so I’m using a Ploom pose instead. Whether used as decor or to pose on, though, this is seriously cute. There is also an elegant silver and gold version available.

Hello 2015

My jewels are from Cae, and the pearl ring on my right hand is new for Fit For A Princess. It’s so delicate and pretty.

January Jewels

When the party was over, the poor puppy was utterly exhausted, and curled up in his bed by the fireplace… the mantle was still decorated for the season and I couldn’t resist snapping a pic.

Not a creature was stirring

Wishing you all a wonderful 2015!

Avatar In A Box Challenge

So, I read Berry’s blog post where she participated in a challenge presented by Vanessa Blaylock called Avatar In A Box. It’s inspired by a cool, real life art installation, and as soon as I saw it, I knew what I had to do.

I just had to be me.

You see, I regularly wear boxes in SL. I also frequently wear houses, or entire folders, or attach things instead of deleting them and go flying across my parcel to the object. Yes, even in SL, I am a world class klutz. It’s okay. It’s part of my charm. 😀 In fact, this morning I was gifted a Trompe Loeil giftcard. And I was wearing the box within seconds of it landing in my inventory, and I can’t even tell you HOW it happened. I’d have taken a pic of that for this, but it was on my head and I didn’t want to hide my pretty skin from Glam Affair for Collabor88 or the adorable hair by Tableau Vivant.

So, without further ado… my challenge pic. This is totally raw, as I uploaded it straight from SL to Flickr.

Avatar In A Box Challenge

This is a fun challenge, that will undoubtedly result in lots of creative, intriguing entries. Definitely one to follow, even if you don’t participate yourself!

The Sewing Loft

A couple of months back I bought this gorgeous converted barn from Barnesworth Anubis. I am in so love with this house (which is insanely huge, btw) that I may keep it through the holidays. For a compulsive home changer like me, that’s quite a statement. One of my favorite features of this home is the giant loft. I decided I wanted to make it half a library (and when that part’s done, there will be pics) and half a craft sort of area. This meant that Pixel Mode’s beautiful Arcade set, The Sewing Corner, was perfect for up there!

Lair of the Seamstress

I also wanted some seating, so I threw in a couple of pieces from Scarlet Creative’s Meribel set, also from The Arcade, which you can see in this wider shot of the room.

The Sewing Loft

There are still five full days left at The Arcade, so be sure to stop by before it’s over!

Desert Dreams

I have some Collabor88 home style to share today. You still have a brief time to go grab these goodies, so be sure to head over before their big birthday bash comes to an end.

Kuro is a guest at Collab’s birthday, and has a gorgeous bedroom set. I decided to take the opportunity to showcase it in one of the rooms of Jasmine, Scarlet Creative’s prefab available at the event. As is a hallmark of Charlotte Bartlett’s work, this build features beautiful windows, and plenty of them! The detail is really stunning, as you can see below.

Desert Dreams

I really love the fountains and planters from Lark Collab, too. Here, I am featuring the fountain. I love water, and I figured my desert inspired home could use some! This was also photographed in the Jasmine home.

Ariel's Fountain

Stay tuned for one final post of goodies from Collabor88’s birthday sometime in the next couple of days!

Happy Birthday, Collabor88!

The current round of Collabor88 celebrates three years of this awesome event. As is the custom every year, the birthday edition is HUGE! I have many things I want to share so I won’t blather on.

First up a bit of decor. All the times in this pic, save for my Turnip’s skydome and Botanical cacti, are from Collab’s birthday bash. Full credits will follow, but this beautiful build is from Scarlet Creative. There’s a version of this build without the bright colors, but I really loved them so I went for the colorful one.

Where the goddess relaxes

If you’re a skin junkie (like me), you’re in luck because there are multiple skin stores participating in Collab’s birthday round. Below you can see one of the versions of Belleza’s lovely Grace skin, available at Collabor88. My gorgeous jewels by Cae are coming soon to the next round of Fit For A Princess.

Lady In Waiting

I have been lacking in home and garden posts of late, so I decided to stage my pic in the lovely new Lima Bean home from Windsong (formerly emm*shop), with some beautiful, romantic furniture from Pixel Mode. My lovely lingerie is by Blacklace.

Long Distance Love

I will have more from Collabor88’s birthday round in the next few days… stay tuned!

Ready for romance

I had put together a look that was a mix of items from Summerfest and Rhapsody, and when I saw Pixel Mode’s FaMESHed release, I knew immediately how to stage it. This release features a romantic massage table that includes spa items on tables (towels, oils, massage stones). It’s really pretty, and there is a PG version or an adult version. My kimono is from tres blah, for Summerfest. It has a tank that has multiple texture options, including hide. I’ve hidden it in order to show off some very pretty, lacey lingerie from Blacklace. The adorable heels I am wearing are fri.day for Rhapsody (fri.day is in the jazz genre). This super sexy bed hair is Holli from Ploom, also for Summerfest.

Ready For Romance

I am in the beautiful Scarlet Creative house that is just L$88 at Collabor88 until this round ends (just a few more days!). What I’ve always loved about Scarlet Creative’s buildings is how unique and quirky they are. They all have such amazing character, and the Atlantic Stargazer is no different. The old lighted captain’s wheel on the wall is also available at Collabor88, from tarte. It’s a really pretty way to decorate in a summery, beach house vibe. Here’s a better look at it, and also at the stunning Ria skin Belleza has at Summerfest. You can also take a look at my cute disco inspired necklace from Cae for Rhapsody.
