The Fisherman

The Fisherman

Ah… what a beautiful morning for some fishing on the lake. So far, I haven’t caught anything, but I’m not ready to go home yet. Good thing I brought my lunch. Anyway, my fishing gear today consists of these great cargo pants and skullie shirt by Ruca Tease for the Color Explosion Hunt. Care and Love have already shown you a few ladies items from this hunt, but there are also men’s prizes to be found. The hunt runs until May 31st, and all prizes are free. More info on the official blog.

My hat is a MENstuff gift from JfL, bracelet is a group gift from Ronsem, and my earring is a group gift from ::GABRIEL::. These unisex sneakers were just 10L at Duh! and come with both black and white versions in the box. However, if you’re a new resident under 30 days old, you can pick up a free pair at the front desk of the in-world store.

At the rate I’m going, we won’t be having fish for dinner tonight. :-(

It Was A Cold Winter Night… Outside These Four Walls

It may have been a cold, winter night outside, but inside these four walls, it was warm and cozy! Like Love, I recently did a little Cold Winter Nights Hunting. And she did not exaggerate about how fabulous the prizes are in this hunt! Check out Love’s post here for more information about the Cold Winter Night Hunt and for photos of some of the great prizes she picked up.

I invited Gavin over to see my new Little Getaway Skybox, the CWNH prize from Designer Prims. I had so much fun playing with the options on this amazing skybox that I may have gotten an eensy bit carried away. Seriously though, there is almost nothing you can’t mod, so you can customize it to be whatever you want it to be. There’s a menu-driven panel to change the floor, brick walls, and accent wood; the rest you can just re-texture yourself. Trust me, your 10L will be well spent on this one! The furniture you see here (most of it) is part of the hunt prize from Cleo Design. It includes two different sofas, a rug, coffee table with candles and fruit, a magazine rack, and a mirror and set of pictures that you can’t see in this picture. Again, I went a little nuts playing with the color options on the sofas. They come with several fun animations, and even dispense props! The lovely artwork you see over the green sofa not a hunt prize, but is a gift from Whiskey Monday to celebrate the first anniversary of Atelier Kreslo. There is also second gift, which I’ll show you in a bit.

Another view of the skybox. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

I had this empty back wall and nothing to fill it up, so I accidentally on-purpose wandered off into another hunt: The Four Walls Hunt.

fw-logo-copy

The Four Walls Hunt runs until January 31st, and includes 37 stores. All prizes are 20L, but are valued at 200L or more. Be sure to visit the official blog for prize photos and SLURLs. You’ll be hunting for an evergreen tree in a cardboard box.

PRIZE PREVIEW AND SLURLS

Ok, back to my empty wall: I saw a picture of the Miller Dresser and Positive Words Art from PILOT and decided that I absolutely had to have it. Can you believe the dresser is only 2 L.I.? Oh, and see that cakestand full of delicious cupcakes? Another Four Walls prize, this time from Sway’s. It comes with the plates and cups you saw on the table in the previous pictures, as well as a couple of cute wall-hangings. Yummy! The Bird Cage Lamp is not a hunt item, but rather a free gift from Sway’s. There is also a smaller version in the box. Over in the corner is another non-hunt item, the Mayfair Trunk (Old Glory), a VIP group gift from {what next} (250L to join). The bookcase and furnishings inside are part of the skybox. :-)

Gavin is such a “Sheldon” that I decided to pick up the Star Party star-gazing set, the CWNH prize from -Hanaya-. It is mesh, weighs in at 9 L.I., and comes with menu-driven animations for up to three avatars. It’s really a lot of fun to play with. Hey, looks like Gavin found something!

Here is an outside view of the skybox. The inside brick texture carries to the outside wall. There is a door on the other side, in case you decide to put your home on land instead of floating in the sky.

More evidence of my “modding madness”: I took out the fireplace that came with the skybox and added this Oak Fireplace, the CWNH prize from [Barnesworth Anubis]. The mirror over the mantle and the two pictures to the left of the fireplace are part of the Cleo Design CWNH prize. And the little daisy on a chair is the other anniversary gift from Atelier Kreslo; it comes in 3 sizes, with this one being the largest. To the right of the fireplace is the Pallet Log Box, the most recent VIP group gift from {what next}. Gavin and I decided to finish off those cupcakes; we’re snuggling in the Warming Up couples pose, the CWNH prize from Atooly.

Oh, and about what we’re wearing: Gavin’s beautifully textured mesh sweater is the CWNH prize from {Epicosity}, and my sparkly Pom Pom sweater is the prize from ::PurpleMoon::. My pants are not a hunt prize, but I’ll tell you about them anyway: they are the R.icielli Mesh SALLY Skinny Pants, available for 10L on the Marketplace. You get 10 different colors in the box, each in 5 standard sizes. How’s that for a deal? UPDATE: Gavin’s pants are a holiday gift from Rispetto Designs, and will be available to group members until approximately February 1st (50L to join); look for the boxes under the Christmas tree. We’re both wearing free skins; Gavin’s is part of the latest group gift from -Belleza- (250L to join), and mine is [ROCKBERRY]‘s free gift at FabFree Headquarters.

Whew! Any cupcakes left?

What’s Next: Blossoming Into 2013?

blossom1f

Confession: I hate odd-numbered years. I know, I know; odd-numbered years are no different than even-numbered years, but hey, everyone’s got their “thing,” right? This just happens to be mine. Add to that the fact that next year has a 13 in it, and I can’t help but worry that we’re in for a bumpy ride! Thank goodness I’ve got Nessie – who’s not afraid of ANYTHING, by the way – to help ease my irrational, numerical fears!

Today I’m wrapping my fears in my fave color purple with this lovely, mesh, berry wrap dress and shoes by [Blossom], which are their December gifts for the Womenstuff Hunt. The November gift is also still available, so hurry over and get yourself an even-numbered 2-fer! The Womenstuff Hunt is loaded with fabulous gifts, and ends on January 2nd.

This gorgeous skin with shimmery shadow is from [Pink Fuel], and was their prize in the With Love Hunt, which I think ended on December 28th. Even so, the box is still there for you to find (as of this afternoon), and can be  yours for only 10L. The skin comes in ivory with 4 brow options, or no brow, if that’s how you roll. I love the little beauty mark next to the left eye. My Touch of Stone jewelry is a past group gift from Lazuri, and I’m sorry to say is no longer available for free. However, you can pick it up at a substantial discount by wearing your group tag (free to join). Plus, the current version comes with 4 different metals and 9 stones, with the necklace in 3 styles and the earrings in 2. Head for the Sale/Freebies room, and don’t forget to pick up the other gifts while you’re there! :-)

Face your fear… they’re just silly numbers… breathe in, breathe out…

Sigh… So I’m facing my fear by surrounding myself with these pretty New Year’s decor items from {what next}. This set of 2 Resolutions Prints is a VIP Group gift, which you can find in your notices or pick up at the store. I keep repeating the positive messages over and over again… Oh, and the 2013 Mantle Decor, which includes the candles and leaning Auld Lang Syne Art Print, are on sale for 75L today for Lazy Sunday. And my little Christmas Village houses have been blogged everywhere by now, but in case you missed them, are by Pilot for The Arcade Gacha (I couldn’t resist!).

(FYI – {what next} is currently having a 50% off sale at the Christmas & Winter Market. VIP group members receive 30% rewards credit, so be sure to wear your group tag!)

So I wonder: Do I have disparnumerophobia? Or triskaidekaphobia? Or both?? 8O
