Getting Ready For Spring

Yes so if you are like me, Spring is slowly making it’s way in and by slowly I mean one nice day a week mixed in with the super cold rainy ones.  I haven’t really begun to set things up in RL and the same goes for SL.  We got our new home over a month ago and I’m still not even close to having it finished. RL and it’s antics along with my blogging tend to keep me busy enough, but I hope to find the next few days to get more done.  I do, however, have our garden set up along with shed and apple trees.  This post is filled with new garden goodies from Chez Moi, Goose, MudHoney and BluPrintz that I mixed with older garden faves from Pixel Mode, Dust Bunny, Pilot and Sway’s.

The Kitchen

I absolutely love this new kitchen from Pixel Mode that Tya made for The Arcade.  As with many of her past Arcade items there are no rare which makes it, I hope, easier to find all the pieces you need to complete it.  The main kitchen counter comes in two sizes, five meters and then eight meters (shown).  The doors on the storage cabinet open and the lights do turn on and off but unfortunately there are no animations in the kitchen itself (which may matter to some).  Helping make the room look more lived in are even more items from the latest round of Arcade and also the new birthday round of The Liaison Collaborative.  I also included many pieces from Second Spaces that I picked up at past Arcade rounds.

Who Let The Sheep Out?

look 757_002_edited-2Hey there! Have a pretty large post for you today featuring items from Jian and Consignment along with Truth and Cynful.  The barn and sheep from Jian are both fantastic, both are texture change and the sheep come in a static or animated option.  From Cynful is the new Lotta Sass dress that I had to pair with new hair from Truth that I adored at first sight along with an older Cynful release of the Cropped Denim Jacket.

Tea Time!

The Arcade has been in full swing now for ten days and as always there are lots of fun things to collect. Since Erratic did an afternoon tea theme I figured why not do a country tea filled with all sorts of cute things, like the adorable build your own Fairy Village from Alouette.  I also wanted to show you the new white fence building set from What Next and the Dragonfly Flutter Critters from Dysfunctional Designs ( you can see it above the table). The Dragonflies are texture change and you can set the range for them to fly, they are also one prim.  For a larger view just click the pic!

Cottage Corner

I decided to dress up the back room of the adorable little Darcy Cottage from Funky Junk (which I will blog in a day or two) with lots of goodies that can be found at the Home & Garden Expo from all sorts of creators taking part.  I started with the incredible fireplace and pillow bench from Cleo Designs and went from there adding creations from Fairy Unique Designs, Circa, %Percent, DaD Designs, Shabby and Hanaya with a few things from The Arcade thrown in too. Hope you like it half as much as I love this, it turned out so cozy I wanted to keep it up forever.  I’m going to post the LM to Sim #6 of the Expo HERE since most of the items can be found on that sim you can also head over to the official BLOG here for even more info.  As always just click on the pic if you need a larger view!
