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.

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.

Doesn’t It Look Like I’m Getting Ready?

Hey there! This is my third Home & Garden Expo post!  I can’t begin to tell you how many awesome things are at this event!  I’ve discovered several new-to-me creators that I will be keeping my eye on and picked up a fabulous work of art for my personal home.  Today is about the walk in closet by Bazar that comes in dark  and white wood and in both male and female versions.  I added the chair and table from HJM Designs and rug from Spargel & Shine Homes.  I also included a few new items from The Liaison Collaborative along with some of my decor faves.  If you haven’t already get down to the Expo AND TLC and check out all the goodies, you will NOT be disappointed!

Sea Side Retreat

Hey there.  Finally able to get this out to you after a few busy RL days helping my baby celebrate her fifth birthday and then dealing with a sick hubby last night and today.  We got plenty of snow where I’m at in RL but thanks to SL we can have sun, fun and the beach anytime we want! The new Sea La Vie set for The Gacha Garden helps bring the outside indoors with it’s nautical inspired bedroom set. I added some of my old faves from Dust Bunny, What Next and MudHoney to name just a few to finish the room.

The Light Of Early Morning

look 761_013
I’m really excited for this post today! I’ve continued to push myself using more colorful windlights and play more with shadows (my worry is things may be too dark) and of-course I’ve been wanting to show you all the awesome kitchen stuff from Sari-Sari and Second Spaces for The Arcade ever since the event opened.  I also have more fantastic goodies from the latest round of My Attic including the table, chairs, console table and my thigh high socks, lingerie and pose.  I also can’t forget new earrings from Jian!  As always just click the pics if you need a larger more detailed view and happy shopping!
