The things I do for Love

Snapshot_001

The Honey-do List…

She nagged asked me repeatedly to make her a new vegetable garden on the other side of the horse pasture. The only way to get her to stop nagging asking repeatedly was to finally cave in happily comply with her wishes. I decided I would mow off the patch before breaking up the sod and tilling the ground.  I asked her exactly where she wanted her new garden as I was pushing the mower in the general direction. “Let me show you!” she happily exclaimed, then she perched herself on top of the handle, guiding me like a lookout in a ship’s crow’s nest. <sigh>  The things I do for Love…

Her supervisor attire…

The summer floral Cotton Top by 1Hundred is available at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L.  In the pack you’ll find both the peach that she is displaying and also pink. I was told to mention that  “This is a sweet top that is compatible with system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega, Wowmeh, and Lola.” Her words, not mine.

His slave work attire….

I am appropriately wearing the kwitchurbitchin Novelty Tee by Park Place that I found for just $10L at The Wash Cart Sale. Also found at The Wash Cart Sale is the b/w Tailored Shorts by Dark Water Designs, also just $10L. My Baseball Cap is a FREE subscriber gift from Argrace.

Follow My Lead….

The pose, Follow My Lead, is a FREE group gift from Drunk-Panda. The Drunk Panda group is FREE to join. (After all this work, I want to be a drunk panda too!) The pose does not come with a lawnmower, but I was lucky enough to win the Spring Garden Green Lawnmower from the gacha at {what next}, which is just $50L per play.

Steam Punk Princess

Steam Punk Close There’s a fun underwater-steam-punk themed grid-wide hunt happening for the month of March. Steam: The Hunt “Realms of The Deep” started March 1st and continues through the end of the month. The Steam Hunt is a FREE hunt, simply find the hidden gear, and click it to get your prize. I had a lot of fun playing dress-up with some of the items I found on the hunt, I think you will too! I also picked up the March group gift at ECCO because the dainty little crown was too cute to pass up and it looks adorable with this playful steam punk outfit.

I also picked up this cute little crown at ECCO. The crown is the March group gift at ECCO, and I think it looks super cute with this steam punk outfit. The crown gift includes a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 different colors for the accent roses on the crown. To get this gift, head to the ECCO main store, pay the one time join fee of 200 lindens, and claim your group gift.

The little hooded jacket, ruffled corset, and striped skirt are all part of the female gift at Snowpaws. There’s a male gift included in the folder as well. The FREE Steam Hunt gift at Snowpaws includes several mesh sizes for easy fitting. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together. I love the playful feel of this look, it’s cute and has that steam-punk vibe without being over-the-top. With the right shoes I think you could take this outfit from fantasy and role play to something more urban everyday.

Speaking of shoes, these boots from Lindy Modern are one of two pairs you’ll get as your FREE Steam Hunt prize. The boots are highly detailed and include alpha layers. There’s no need for mesh feet to wear these boots from Lindy Modern, they fit mesh and classic avatars. I think these boots would also be cute with a solid colored top and jeans, for a fun modern look with a steam punk edge.
Steam Punk Next stop on my hunting spree is Park Place. The Steam Hunt prize at Park Place is this gigantic book case complete with male and female poses. It also has a giant aquarium in the center that is sure to make you feel like you’re deep under the ocean waves. This FREE Steam Hunt gift at Park Place was too large for my little laptop to get a full sized clear photo of it, so I included an ad from Park Place below.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Crown – .:ECCO:. Rose Crown – Rose Gold – FREE Group Gift/Group is 200L to Join

Homeless in high style!

homeless1

Ok, funny story. Here I was, doing a little decorating at my home to take pictures for this post, putting out some Christmasy stuff, when I decided that I didn’t like one of the items I had put out. So, I selected it and deleted it. Oops! It was actually my home that I had selected, and suddenly poof, no more church! What is even more funny, the actual building belonged to my Mom, so it is no simple thing to just pull it out of my inventory and put it back down, I have to wait for her to actually log into SL to put it back out for me. So now my post has turned into a Christmasy ‘waiting’ post. LOL

homeless3

Lucky for me, I can almost forget that I am homeless for the moment, as I do not have to sit in the snow, I have a decorative element to make my wait pretty, and, one of my KittyCatS decided to hang around (while the rest immediately took off, enjoying their new-found, ‘no-wall’ freedom). The lovely ottoman I have, to keep me out of the snow, and the beautiful wreath behind me (easel not included), are both items available from the Park Place booth at the Wash Cart sale, which just so happened to have officially started today, and of course are each L$10. The choices of poses in the Red Poinsettia Ottoman, both for females, and males, are all really great, and I love the simplicity of the Holiday Ornament Wreath. You have until Jan 6th to visit the Park Place booth, for these, and other lovely decor items, as well as some pretty, mesh, crop sweaters.

homeless2

Speaking of sweaters…I love the idea of the ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ party, and that was what I was actually decorating for in the first place. Well, maybe not a party, as it would have only been me and my cats, but…any excuse to wear an ugly Christmas sweater is ok in my books. How nice of high.v to have put out a gacha at this round of fi*Friday, just full of ugly Christmas sweaters! I got the perfect one for me, it says ‘I want to believe Santa is out there’, which all you fellow sci-fi/alien nerds know, is a riff on X-Files and the “I Want to Believe” UFO poster that Mulder has. For only L$55 a play, choose the machine you want to play, male, female or TD Kids and Baby. and then you will  get 1 mesh sweater, that comes in all of the standard sizes. Even though I forgot to grab a shot of the ad showing every one available, believe me, they are all cute. In fact…they really aren’t ugly at all. I’m not sure if this machine will stick around for the next round, so just in case, you better make your way down to fi*Friday before Friday, or you may miss out.

OK, before I say goodnight, my kitty, Cinder,  reminded me that I never did officially introduce her. Cinder is my newest furbaby, and she is the 5th Anniversary Firestorm KittyCat, The FireFlurry. Like past firestorm kittys, you do not need food for them to survive. While the Firestorm anniversary was a little while ago, you can still get your own FireFlurry at the KittyCatS mainstore, for free, 1 per av.

OK, now that I’ve appeased Cinder’s vanity, I better go see if my Mom has forgotten about my current homeless situation, and give her a call. I hope you all have a wonderful evening, and don’t forget to lock your houses in place! LOL. Until next time, TTFN 🙂

Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – A Touch of the Renaissance!

A guest blog by Gloria Silverstone, originally blogged [HERE] – A Touch of the Renaissance!

Grand, formal, opulent, and stately are terms I think of when I think of the Renaissance period.  Great art, architecture, literature, and inventions flourished during this time with masters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raphael (Italy), and William Shakespeare (England) emerging.  It is also the only period I don’t have furniture for in my inventory.  But not to worry, my resource is the currently running Renaissance Fair Hunt IV.  I’ve created three vignettes with gifts from numerous hunts below (**mostly free). Remember always shop around, don’t just buy every new release item from the top Second Life creators, because in the end you only recreate their vendor ads and it never has your personality infused.  Use anything that inspires you as a source, take risks, be creative, and challenge yourself like I did with my tribute to the Renaissance.  After all Renaissance means re-birth so it’s the perfect time to freshen your home with new ideas.  Happy decorating and good luck hunting!

Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – Falling for Free Furniture

A guest blog by Gloria Silverstone, originally blogged [HERE]
Framed Fall Furniture

There is noting better than free, especially free furniture.  This time of the year can be tricky to decorate, it’s not quite autumn and summer is drawing to a close.  I designed a living space using loads of free items in deep navy and rich rust tones with hits of industrial steampunk, creating an eclectic vibe.  Hope it’s inspired you to mix and match old and new items to create a fresh look in your SL home.

Can’t beat a comfy chair, in your PJ’s, with a great book!

*waves* Hello Fabbies!

I must say, after all that laying around on the beach today, you’d think that the last thing I would want to do is relax. A good book is a wonderful persuader though.

Lounge1

How lucky am I that the super comfy [Park Place] Brown Leather Accent Chair (C) is  still available right now as a free gift at the FabFree HQ. Xiu had actually blogged this earlier [HERE], showing off the fun cell phone talking animation, but I wanted to show you the book reading one where you are given the book to attach.  Anything that involves me receiving a free book is a big win in my world, and this chair is perfect for sitting back and relaxing with a book.

Lounge2

This little library corner in my skybox did not have nearly enough light for my reading pleasure, so I took a little looksee on the Marketplace and found the *_*C-Outlet*_* Richie Floorlamp Grunge Metal for only L$10. It’s a sleek looking lamp that give just enough light that I don’t have to squint to see the words. Perfect!

Also from the Marketplace, I found the .:Buttery Toast:. Buttery Toast Pjs wearable demo.  It is so cute, and talk about perfect for lounging! The colours of these pj’s are 2 of my favourites, and being free to boot…this was an easy no-brainer. It is a one piece mesh item, available in the 5 standard sizes.  Don’t you just love the cute little kawaii toast that this store uses as it’s logo?

Lounge3

My last addition to my lounging evening is the THINGS REMEMBERED LEATHER AND BEADED CHARM BRACELETS by ~D.D.M. DESIGNS~ JEWELRY, which are also a free gift recently added to the FabFree HQ. The texturing on these bracelets is just so phenomenal, I can see myself wearing them in RL.

Lounge4

OK, I had to pause in the middle of a very important chapter of my book, and I am just dying to find out if the hero saves the girl, so I shall leave you all now. Have a great weekend:)
