Porch Ponderings

Hey there lovely readers! This will be my last post until next week, my guess on Thursday, since I’m heading upstate tomorrow to finally see family!  I haven’t seen them since October and it’s way overdue.  We also will be celebrating kiddo’s birthday so she can have a party with everyone there.  Before I left I had to get another big post done for you, this time featuring amazing work from What Next, Lisp, Finishing Touches, Cynful along with many others.

You Stir In My Soul

Tonight’s post is inspired by the Expresso Bedroom Set from Di’Cor with finishing items from Fiasco, Kalopsia and Dysfunctionality to name a few.  I also thought it was time to spice it up and what better way to do that than with lingerie from Blacklace and sexy Bedroom poses from !Bang for Whore Couture.

Beginning to Feel Like Spring

A bright sunny garden post for you today featuring items from What Next, Circa, Jian, Chez Moi and Finishing Touches.  I know you can’t see it in my main pic, but I built this garden on several of Jian’s new floating Islands (Ad for islands below) that I put together to make one larger area.  They come in three sizes and are copy/mod, are season change and very cool to make a small garden like I did or any type of unique build you can think of. What Next and Circa bring several Spring staples to us with their pastel creations while Finishing Touches brings us many pops of  color with their large variety of potted flowers.

Letting The Light Shine In

Happy Saturday my fantastic readers!  This cold yet sunny morning I have a huge post for you filled with more home decor items from Clustered. and the H&G Expo along with original artist work that can also be found at the Expo.  I also threw myself into the mix with an outfit I put together and just love featuring Vinyl, Blueberry and Livalle. The cottage that I took this pic in is from Spargel & Shine Homes and features an open floorplan filled with lots of window and doors that you can open and close (and the doors even stay open!) and also includes one bedroom upstairs with an attic sort of feel. The house is 110 land impact, compact and absolutely adorable.

A new event has hit the grid called Mix, which is a hud based event that allows creators to decide if they want to do a new item, exclusive or sale item.  July is the very first round for this new event and Sway’s is taking part with an exclusive black and white version of the Filis Set.  The chairs include twelve single and seven couples animations in each and both come with six texture options and can be either black or white.  The set also includes the paper ball lamps that come in single or trio versions, tables in black or white and magazines; There is also a selection of different color tulips.  All items are available together or sold separately.  You will only be able to get this set until July 31st, so be sure to run down and grab it!

Afternoon At The Pool

So I’m just gonna say it, I’ve seen pools over the years in SL and they normally suck.  They not only look terrible or dated but they also never come with anything to actually do, aka no animations.  Well,  that was until I saw the new pool from Pixel Mode, which is absolutely amazing!   It’s probably the most realistic pool I’ve seen in SL to date, and not only that,  it comes loaded with singles and couples animations along with diving and swimming animations!  Around the pool Tya left some deck space for you to place your chairs,tables and decor items as well as places you can throw in your own landscaping.  AND, just when you thought it could not get better she also built a surround for it so it can be used up in a skydome or you can remove it and terraform your land around it.  You can also mod it and add your own land texture to use the one that you use! It’s currently available at the Love to Decorate event and I can’t stress how much you need to check this out!  All the other goodies I used to showcase the pool, including what I’m wearing, can be found below the pic; and if you need a larger view just click the picture!
