I’ve always been a home body, I need somewhere I can be the real me, completely at ease and protected from the big bad world out there. Well, that’s a little bit dramatic, but you know what I mean. My home is my refuge, if I don’t have somewhere that I can be completely at peace to recharge, I’m a basket case. I’m no different in Second Life. I need to have a home where I can surround myself with my belongings to make me feel all cozy. I’m partial to warm colours and wood tones, the rustic look, I guess. One of my favourite home and decor designers in SL has always been Scarlet Creative. I’ve played every Scarlet Creative gacha there is and I’ve accumulated quite a few houses, skyboxes, and the various buildings that Charlotte Bartlett has created. So when I saw her post on FaceBook back in November about a raffle to raise money for her fur baby, I always like to help out if I can. I ended up not getting there until the last day to enter, but I got a gift card to use at a later date. Needless to say, when I got an instant message from Charlotte saying I’d won the grand prize, I was shocked and unbelieving. I IM’d her back if she was kidding me and she confirmed that no…..I had won…….the big prize!! I won’t be needing my gift card now, since I’m getting EVERY release from Scarlet Creative….for life! I have a hard time comprehending that concept…..I’ve never considered leaving SL, even for a break…so I can’t see me going anywhere anytime soon, but now……..there is NO way in h*ll I’m going to be leaving Second Life. I just think of all those Scarlet Creative homes….and I smile, knowing I’m going to have a new and comfortable home for the rest of my natural Second Life! Thank you, from the bottom of my little old virtual heart, Charlotte……may you and I live long and happy virtual lives! ♥
I’ve surrounded myself with a few things from my Scarlet Creative folder, which is already bursting at the virtual seams! I’ve rezzed the ‘Tree Gazer‘ house, which has two versions, one that stays on the ground and one that rises high above the forest floor so you can look down on your own piece of earthly heaven! I’ve decorated with the ‘Hide Sofa’ and the ‘Antler Chairs’ from ‘The Foundry’ gacha set along with the ‘Daisy Bird Cage, copper’ from the ‘Daisy’ gacha set.
I’ve also chosen some of my favourite things from ..::THOR::... The ‘Boho Guitar’, ‘The Fish Bowl’, the ‘Vintage Nightstand’, the ‘Vintage Radio’, and the ‘Old Books’ and ‘Coffee Cup’ which are on the nightstand. They’re from various gacha sets, which are all incredible.
The stack of books on the floor is a group gift from Nutmeg.
Above the sofa is a large board holding photos, it’s called ‘A Series of Unfortunate Photos, dark’. It holds 9 pictures…..just drag and drop your own textures into it. It’s from .peaches..
The mens and ladies runners are from the ‘Stockholm Bedroom Set’ from ~BAZAR~.
And, the two rugs are from the ‘Farm Living’ gacha set from APT B.
And as for my outfit, you ask? Well, I’m wearing the ‘ACE SPORTS SET’ from DEAD DOLLZ, thanks so much, Elle!
The ‘G1204’ hair is the newest of new releases from tram, and it’s available now at ~uber~. And, as always, my look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.
Last but not least, I’m using the ‘A Purrfect Read (alt)’ pose and book prop from the ‘Book Lovers’ gacha set from Le Poppycock.
