As if the night had said to me, ‘You are the night and the night alone understands you and enfolds you in its arms.’ One with the shadows. Without nightmare. An inexplicable peace.

You are welcome inside, but you might never leave. A collaboration with Mahogany is always a lot of fun, this time we decided to decorate almost the entire build we’re showing you today; The Vintage Tower by MadZaza. It’s a tower alright. Four stories high. The two first floors are rough looking, but the two top floors have beautiful floors, wallpaper and fireplaces. We made the third floor into a living room, there’s a balcony that goes all the way around it and you can step outside through the double doors. You can open the windows, but they are all barred. A safety precaution, maybe?
The top floor works nicely as a bedroom. The Vintage Tower is such a cool build and a lot of fun to decorate! You can see Mahogany’s blog post here.
Inside the greenhouse is plenty of room for your plants, shelves, tools and potting stations. I’m off to a good start here I think; I got my EED potting table and hanging planters with different herbs. The potting table is a new EED mainstore/marketplace release; it’s a decorative item, with a playing cat, potting and garden tools and strawberry planters. I also have my CHEZ MOI garden shelf in here and it’s filled with potted herbs that are all included with the shelf, but not linked, so you can choose to use them separately or with the shelf and move them around as you please. You also get a lemon tree for your greenhouse or garden when you purchase the shelf! In my previous blog post i showed the outside of the greenhouse, which is available at the CHEZ MOI mainstore and so is the garden shelf.
I like doing yard work. Cutting grass, trimming trees, moving rocks. I haven’t done much planting though, but I suspect I might like that too if I ever get a garden that’s my own. Then I’d want a greenhouse like this one from CHEZ MOI; with a mixture of glass and bricks it’s a fantastic piece of garden decor all on its own and with the lean-to shed I’d have everything I need to be a happy hobby gardener. The cute little shed in this picture is made by HJM Designs. It comes with exterior and interior decor, 8 single animations, prop rezzer, and there’s a texture change menu upon Touch. You can find both the greenhouse and the shed in their respective mainstores (slurls below). I’m showing you the inside of the shed in this post and tomorrow, or later today depending on where you are in the world, I’ll have another post showing you the inside of the greenhouse.
The sun will always rise and dogs will always be happy to see you
Hanging on to the summer and the beach a little longer to showcase a couple of items now available in the CHEZ MOI mainstore and marketplace; the Hawaiian Tiki Bar which comes with drinks dispensers that hand out wearable drinks with drinking animations. The bar contains animations for bartending and the chairs for the seated customer, it’s awesome! Then there’s the Sombrero Tiki Bench which matches the bar perfectly. You’ll find plenty of single and couple animations in that one – I took this picture while sitting on the Tiki Bench. I’ve also used previously blogged items to make my tropical resort look good; in the background in this scene you can see the Carolina Wooden Patio Set (I changed the colour of the umbrella and the chairs to white for this picture). This set is available now at The Liaison Collaborative. The Rustic Patio Couch from the Tropicaliente Gacha Set is also back there and it’s available at The Gacha Garden. Slurls below!
Yes, we’re still in vacation mode, Miss Soulstar and I. We spent the whole Sunday at the beach, just relaxing and enjoying each others company and we were wearing the new swimwear by Allure Couture; for the guys there’s the Kai Swim Trunks and for the ladies the Enya Swimsuit. Both outfits come with fitted sandals. For the swimwear we had several colours to choose from, so today we decided to match and wear blue. Here’s your ice cream, love!
A romantic evening for two or a casual family lunch; the Carolina Wooden Patio Set by CHEZ MOI not only looks inviting, it contains everything you need to have a wonderful time with your loved one or your friends and family. In the texture changer HUD you’ll find 12 different colours for the umbrella and the cushion chair. The chair contains a multitude of female and male animations and some for toddlers! It also contains a prop rezzer, for meals and drinks. The Carolina Wooden Patio Set is available exclusively at The Liaison Collaborative between August 3rd and August 26th.
Yesterday I said I was featuring one of two new sponsors. Today I’m featuring the other one. And oh man, have I got some cool stuff to show you! The Tropicaliente Pool Party by CHEZ MOI is a fun and cozy addition to your garden. The pool sits up to four people and contains 22 single animations. The patio couch contains 24 single and 15 PG couple animations. The rainbow float contains 16 single and 5 couple animations. I had a blast trying out the shark float which contains 3 single animations. The Tropicaliente Pool Party Gacha is available to play NOW and until August 31st at The Gacha Garden. For more information on how the gacha machines at The Gacha Garden works, read here.
Featuring one of two new sponsors today! This is +[MadZaza]+ and +[MadZaza]+ does wonderful dark builds, like this first one; the Vintage Factory. On the outside it looks like any other old industrial brick building in the city, but inside you’ll find someone has made a home of it. There’s a huge basement. You’ll find on/off light switches next to the door. The staircase leads you up to the living quarters; three big rooms, with amazing floors and wall textures and beautiful windows that open. I’ll make sure to take some pictures inside later, but for now do check out Mahogany’s blog post because she already took some!
When reaching 1K followers on Flickr I thought about ways to thank you all in a much more fun and engaging way than me just simply posting a thank you photo and here it is! I invite you all to participate in Sander’s 1K Photo Contest!
All you have to do is think about what the term simple pleasures means to you; the little things in your life that brings you much joy, and portray this into a photo. Tag the photo #Sanders1K (make sure you spell it right so I can find it!) and upload it to Flickr between August 1st and August 31st. EASY PEASY! Oh and people, keep it tasteful, meaning no porn. Artsy nudity is fine 🙂 The entries will be judged by an impartial jury, so I can sadly not accept bribes ;p HAVE FUN EVERYONE! You can post as many entries as you want and I hope to see a lot of you participate!
