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.

Eggs, Bunnies and Tea! Oh My!

Whew! Ok, so here is another post for you tonight featuring lots of new Easter and Spring inspired goodies for you.  Finishing Touches is a great place to find cute little decor for holidays, seasons and the everyday.  One of my favorites from last year is the Egg Painting Table that is back this year and comes with animations for getting those eggs ready. From Shabby Tabby comes the other table and chairs set, Easter baskets and very cute glowing Easter grass.  I also have adorable bunnies from Half-Deer for C88 and new pastel tea set from Random.Matter for The Liaison Collaborative’s 3rd Birthday.  I am also wearing the Lacey Flats/Sock combo from Fri.day and Amiable’s cute Frilly Dress also at TLC with hair from Exile for C88.

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.

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.

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!
