Century Farm

Century Farm

This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the farm being in the family! I’ve lived here most of my life and can’t imagine living anywhere else! The ground I walk on holds the history of my family and it all tells a tale when I look around and remember the past. It’s all changed with time, my years here have seen changes, so I can’t imagine the memories my Mum must have now that she’s living in the house she grew up in. The actual farm yard is massive and takes more work than I have the energy to do most days, but I keep at it and try to make it the showcase it’s always been. My Granddad spent countless hours making it look it’s best, if for no other reason than pride in the work. The massive amount of trees to take care of is the one overwhelming job that I happen to be working on now. With 100 year old maples and row upon row of hedges, the maintenance is an ongoing job, but I work at it slowly and do what I can. I’m not sure what the future holds for the farm. I have no children and my sister doesn’t either, so this is probably the end of the line for it, at least as far as this family goes! But, things change and evolve and the one thing that never stops is time marching on!

I’ve created a little area here for me to take time to enjoy the garden and ponder life, just as my real life home has areas such as this! The latest group gift from KraftWork was the start of it and I just added things I’ve gathered up over time. The ‘Water on Tap’ hydrant set includes three rustic taps with varying degrees of aging, ranging from new to middle age and then the aged, which is seen here! It seems to have developed a drip, which I’ll have to get Dad to have a look at! ;D It has a land impact of 2 and is copy/mod! The group is 25L$ to join, which is a mere pittance when you see the incredible group gifts that are released regularly!

I’m going to do something I’ve never done before on my blog, and that’s listing the rest of the items in the scene in bullet form. This will save me some time so I can get out to tackle the work again this morning! 🙂

* also from KraftWork is the Bakelite Vintage Radio from the Vintage Radio Gacha set.

* the ‘Garden Retreat’ is from .:revival:.. I just adore their rustic and homey garden and home decor. Also from .:revival:. is the Book Pile, leather, which is part of a gacha set.

A Quiet Day

A Quiet Day

I’ve got lots going on in this post, so I’ll get started! First off, the June round of Collabor88 has begun and Ingenue has released another ‘must have’ pair of shoes! The ‘Lisbet Heels’ are fitted for the SLink and Maitreya mid foot and come in a dozen colours, all of them perfect for those summertime outfits! The chunky heel and the smooth lines of the straps really call attention to pretty legs and ankles!

The June round of The Avenue is on and Raindale has updated one of the earliest releases! The ‘Larimer’ set has been redone with added textures and animations for the cushions, the table and decor have been completely revamped, and the wall art now has five pictures to choose from! There’s two versions of the floor cushions so you can either change their colour via drop down menu or with a a HUD(10 colours for all) and the single cushion has 15 animations and the stacked cushions have 25, the light is on/off on touch, and the table and decor comes linked together for easy decorating or separately. The Avenue runs until June 20. Also from Raindale is the Apple Basket, one of my favourite things to have around, and the tea cup from the ‘Sugarvale’ gacha set! I always like to have a cup of something hot close by when I’m relaxing! Both of those items are available at the Raindale main store.

I want to take a second to bring your attention to a piece of art that I just had to have! While wandering around ‘The Last Forever‘ I took notice of an incredibly unique sculpture and after a quick check in edit mode I found out it was created by Silas Merlin! I wanted to see more from him, so I made a trip to ‘The Silas Gallery‘ and fell in love with his work! I brought home ‘Marrakech’, it’s the kitty on the wall for anyone not sure where to look, and I think it’s perfect for my little abode! I then made my way to the June round of ‘The Chapter Four‘ and played his latest gacha, the ‘Eerie Crew’ gacha! It consists of ten commons and one RARE sculpture, all showing Silas’s incredible talent!

Also in this shot is the RARE ‘Big Broadcast Radio’ from the Vintage Radios gacha set from KraftWork! It comes with two versions, one is a completely operable radio and the other is for decor only!

The row of books in front of the radio is from Balaclava and was on sale for Fifty Linden Friday this past week. It’s texture change with different genres of books, I’m into ‘new age’ right now!

The big pillow on the right is the ‘patchwork pillow’ from [we’re CLOSED]! It’s a group gift so it’s your for the taking if you’re a group member! The group is 250L$ to join, but it’s worth it!! There’s about 10 gifts there right now and they’re all very good quality!

I made quite a few purchases at Collabor88 when I was there! I was so shocked to get in so early in the round that I celebrated with buying lots! The ‘potted palm’ is part of the ‘Natural Habitat’ set of house plants from dust bunny! I just got the fatpack, and completely avoided the dilemma of which one to get! The fatpack has five really great house plants, and I can’t kill any of them with lack of water! 🙂

The ‘Feline Jeans Mini’ in navy is from Mimikri! It’s a perfect fit on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, as you can see. It’s also fitted for the SLink mesh bodies!

My home is the JAC Boat Shack from Redgrave. I keep the sun out with the Carriage Blinds from ‘The Carriage’ gacha set from Scarlett Creative.

As always, I’m wearing the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins(soon to be ‘Avada’) on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using a pose from Pose Set 86 from Overlow Poses.
