Up Way Too Late

The title of my blog post is inspired by the very revealing time shown on the clock in the picture. I had the clock show my time zone and apparently I took this picture at almost 1 am last night. I even stayed up for a couple more hours after that 😛

GOOSE just released their first modern bedroom set, at this round of Cosmopolitan and it looks awesome! With metal and wood finish it has a masculine, urban/industrial feel and it’ll look great in any modern build The complete set consists of a bed, cabinet, privacy screen, lamps and wall art. I decorated my bedroom inside the Attison, a newly released house by Galland Homes. For exterior shots of the house, take a look at my previous blog post.

Facing the Elements

Wow, just wow. What a beautiful and versatile build this is. I’m delighted to show you pictures of the Attison, a new release by Galland Homes which is available at this round of FaMESHed. It’s a contemporary and minimalistic house in concrete with beautiful wood details and big glass windows and sliding doors. Versatile because it will look great anywhere you place it, be it on a beach or inland. Low Land Impact, only 20 LI and a footprint of 16 x 26. Read more about the house below. I don’t usually furnish houses too much for my pictures, but this time I’ve included furniture from GOOSE and DaD that I think look absolutely perfect for the Attison. Take a look at the credits for info.

Its original mesh design incorporates clean and modern elements and invites the surrounding terrain into your living space. Light will flow easily through the large cased glass panels and glass sliding doors. This simple two-room structure offers a contemporary getaway, a solo abode, or would be fitting as an outbuilding or pool house on a lot with a house of similar design.

The house control system offers menu controlled:

  • Security – Allows the owner to add avatars to one of two classes of users: 1) Those who have access to the house controls and land parcel; and 2) Those who are permitted access to the land parcel, but will not have the ability to control house features.
  • Lockable Doors.
  • A teleport feature which allows you to store SLURL’s to your favorite SL destinations and teleport to them by using the house control system.
  • Customizable security system.

The Princess Chambers

Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches.

William Goldman – The Princess Bride

Going with a romantic fantasy/fairytale setting today as I feature two new beautiful creations; the Moonflower Tree from The Little Branch and the Florin Daybed from Barley Home & Decor.

Moonflower is one of the most romantic plants you can grow in a garden. The gorgeous, trumpet-shape flowers unfurl in the evening and stay open until the sun rises. With the tree from The Little Branch you get the choice of Moonflower colour upon Touch. I chose the yellow flowers for my picture. The tree is also lightly animated, like it’s swaying to a gentle breeze. Available right now at the Equal10 event!

The also very romantic Florin Daybed by Barley Home & Decor is available at the Enchantment event. It comes with single and couples animations in PG or Adult/Threesome – including MMF & FFM. Available in colours Green, Pink, Blue and Yellow. The canopy is detachable.

Hillside

The DaD HILLSIDE HOUSE is a modern home with two levels.
The first level is split leaving an open outdoor area that would be ideal for an outdoor dining area or even seating space for casual relaxation.
The room on the left side could be used for a kitchen/family room with the room on the right side as a living room. The choice in how to use each room is really up to you.
The wide staircase accessed from the outside leads to the second floor level where you will find three rooms. The smaller of the three can be used as a second bedroom with the middle space earmarked for the bathroom and the larger room as the master bedroom.
High windows surround the home and open floor space on the outside that welcomes more seating areas to catch the spectacular views. More pictures below the credits.

The Hillside House has a footprint of 28.5×21,5 (resizable) and Land Impact is 68. 100% Original Mesh, Materials enabled, Copy/Modify (scripts are no modify). No Transfer.

The Little Branch‘s newest release are the Juniper Trees V.1 and V.2. The Juniper Tree is a gorgeous evergreen with soft needles instead of leaves. The needles are rather short and grow in clusters close to the branches. The Juniper tree is believed to possess the ability to cleanse and make us pure and true to ourselves. The branches and berries have been used for medicinal and spiritual purposes since ancient times.

I Dream of Spring

This world is filled with frozen lovers
The sheets of their beds are frightfully cold
And I’ve slept there in the snow with others
Yet loved no others before


These cold dark places
Places I’ve been
In cold dark places
I dream of spring

K.D. Lang – I Dream of Spring

“Be a person who can dream about Spring in the dead of Winter”, said Debasish Mridha. While I do think winter is beautiful, when it’s crisp and clear and the snow covers a frozen landscape. Today is not such a day, or rather, this whole past week. Instead of fresh powdery snow, we have sleet, slush and sticky grit. So I dream of spring; the warmth of the sun, budding trees, flowers in bloom, Dachshund puppies with clean bellies… and You and I, we are always together in my dreams.

A Long Winter

We’re not even half way through January and I’m already waiting for Spring. It’s a while still, until April, which is when we can maybe start seeing any signs of Spring here. We might even get a couple of feet of snow in April so the patience game is real now!

The Young Ginkgo Tree by The Little Branch is lightly animated and comes with a season changer menu. You can just touch it and the menu pops up and you can change from Winter to Spring in just a couple of seconds. It’s Land Impact is 7 out of the box but as it’s Copy/Modify you can resize it to fit your needs. The Young Ginkgo Tree is available at the January round of Equal10 which opens today!

Want a small, open plan house with panorama view? The DaD Glass House is small, only 18.2x 11.2 and 37 Li (resizable, Copy/Mod). It even has a round window in the ceiling so when it’s not covered with snow you can watch the stars from the comfort of your living room. Touch any of the switches inside the house to turn on or off the snowy windows. The snow roof add on is sold separately. You can find the house and the snow add on in the DaD mainstore and marketplace.

Snow Covered

Second post today because I have so many awesome items I’d like to show you! Yes, I’m still at work and you might think I’m still procaffeinating but I’ve actually done some work and now I can upload the other picture I took yesterday and quickly, sort of, write this post. I think I’ll have a cookie with my coffee…

The beautiful Oak Tree Shrub by The Little Branch is a new release that is now available at Equal10. The Oak Tree Shrub is an intricately branched ornamental shrub with hollylike leaves. The dense foliage makes it the perfect specimen to fill bare spots or to create a privacy barrier. This shrub will make a beautiful addition to your landscape.

The lovely house is the Southern Cottage by DaD, which is a previous release but the Snow Roof addon is new and waiting for you at the DaD mainstore and marketplace!

Annnnd, I’d like to give a warm welcome and thank you to my newest H&G sponsor, GOOSE!
