My Home is Heaven

All the slurls for the hunt can be found <a href="" target="_blank">here</a>.

I have to admit that I’m a home body…..completely! There’s only one place that truly makes me comfortable and that’s home! My home is my safe place…not that the world out there is anything to hide from……I’m just happiest at home! I’m the same way in Second Life, I make a home for myself where I can relax, feel secure, and do all that important Second Life stuff…….like organizing inventory, changing my clothes, or something a little more enjoyable like sitting on the deck and looking out at the water!

Here’s a little part of my beach cottage at Winters Wind! I just adore it here….the lots are large, it’s very secluded, and I have a terrific sunset view of the water! It’s truly peaceful! When I’m tired of looking out my real life window and seeing the snow, I just come to my little piece of heaven at the Winters Wind sim, and forget about real life!

Now, lets talk about my decor! I’ll start with a couple items from The Upcyclers Hunt! The hunt runs until the end of the month and the theme for the creators is to create an item that is made by repurposing anything they have on hand! The Recycled Tin Can Plane Clock Shelf, from Dixie Dandelion, is really unique! It holds a few books, the clock keeps SL time, and it’s such an inventive way to use a tin can! I wonder if anyone has tried this in real life? Also, for The Upcyclers Hunt is a gift from Raindale! The hunt gift is the Upcyclers Porch Swing, made from a couple of old doors(not seen here), but there’s also a pretty tray of coffee and doughnuts too! I’m a typical Canadian and love coffee and doughnuts! You can see it close up if you zoom in while on flickr!

I was out doing the hunt yesterday and I found the Frog Pond at Pastiche, but I put that outside, but I just love the crate and bag of oats that it came in!! The tray of coffee and doughnuts is sitting on it. All the slurls for the hunt can be found here.

Also included in this picture is the Fire Flies Shelter and the Velit Chair from Bokeh.. They’re going through a renovation right now in world but you can shop on Market Place for the fun Bokeh. creations! The old floor lamp in bronze and the tin vase and twig are from gacha machines at tarte.. The rug in native design is from Zigana.

Never Is A Promise

Never Is A Promise

But as the scenery grows
I see in different lights
The shades and shadows
Undulate in my perception
My feelings swell and stretch
I see from greater heights
I realise what I am now
Too smart to mention
To you

You’ll say you understand
You’ll never understand
I’ll say I’ll never wake up
Knowing how or why
I don’t know what
To believe in
You won’t know who I am
You’ll say I need appeasing
When I start to cry
But never is a promise
And I’ll never need a lie

Never is a Promise ~Fiona Apple~

I’m going to start this morning with the Apple Basket pose prop from Raindale! You know how I can’t resist a great pose prop, and this one is SO great! You can make this set work for you no matter where you are in Second Life! The pack contains a pose stand to rezz and with each pose, the correct prop is added to you and the stand goes invisible! Or, you can use the five poses with the props to add, if you’re in a no rezz area! There’s also a basket for decor that will dispense an apple on touch, and there’s also a nice little scene that would make a great rustic accent in the house! I’d like to welcome Raindale to my little group of featured designers! They have a nice collection of original and well made items that include fashion, pose props, and home and garden decor! When you stop in at the main store, on the Fairy Tale sim, take a look around, there’s the Maple Leaf Cafe, where you can sit and enjoy some quiet time….. and there’s all kinds areas to sit and contemplate life!

The Ashley Shirt from Furtacor is exclusive to the October round of Designer Showcase! It’s HUD driven with lots of colour and print options for the top and vest separately! It’s Maitreya and SLink compatible.

The jeans are the 007 jeans from Larry’s Jeans. They’re Omega, Maitreya, SLink, TMP, and classic avatar compatible and the pack includes four textures.

My eye shadow and beauty mark are from Veechi! I love that Veechi is compatible with the main mesh head makers and plus still has a tattoo layer for the classic avatars out there!

The Miss CoCo hair is from Vanity Hair, from the all browns pack.

As always, I am the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands from SLink.

I’m up on the hill by the windmill for this shot at Garlic Breath at Melee Island! It’s a wonderful sim for photos and plus, you can rezz!! Just remember to pick up after yourself!!
