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!

I’m All Black & Blue!

SPH SAKIDE 1 There is only three days left in the Season’s Palette Hunt, and you don’t want to miss out on it!  I have been scrambling trying to run and grab everything from all of the hunts that end February 29th!  One thing you won’t want to miss is the Season’s Palette Hunt item from SAKIDE!  The prize is the Winter Twins Outfit that includes the turtle neck sweater and both pairs of pants you see in the photos with three pant leg options each.  It comes in both male and female versions so you can be all “matchy matchy” with your someone special.

Koketka also has a fantastic Season’s Palette Hunt gift!  Find the icon in store and you’ll have this adorable mini sweater in blue with 55 on the front.  The sleeves are included.
