The Old Gas Station

I can’t believe I forgot to put gas in the car! Good thing B-Made still has the Old Gas Station at this round of Cosmopolitan or I’d be taking a long walk 😉

The Old Gas Station comes furnished, cars included (unlinked)! Scripted ceiling lamps. Realistic sounds; lots of interactive items, like the old radio oh I love that one! You can find animations in two of the cars too! Footprint is 40×32.

My outfit is put together with items found in the FashionNatic mainstore. Got to love that t-shirt with the Sting open sweatshirt! The Pathos jeans come in regular and boot version so I tried on the boot version together with the Sinder Boots.

Let’s Grow Outside

The Abandoned Greenhouse by Never Totally Dead is definitely abandoned by the people but the trees and plants are still there keeping it company.

In The Half-Light

Be seeing you, sweetling. In the half-light.

The Buzzing

For this round of Cosmopolitan, GOOSE has the Umbrella Bench set. The umbrella lantern is a fun, a little strange but beautiful piece which inspired the half-light mood of this picture. The bench comes in PG and Adult versions.

I’m also featuring the beautiful aelin tree and the noori flower by Yugen. Like all trees from Yugen, you get a leaf and bark HUD and you can find four different versions of the tree in the box and each version come in a high and a low LOD version. The noori flowers come with or without fireflies, touch the flower for texture changer menu. Easy peasy and you’ve got yourself the most beautiful and magical scenery!

Beachy Sunset

The Agarwood Tree is an evergreen tree that was mostly found in Northeast India, Bangladesh and Southeast Asia, and is now considered endangered. Deep, rich, earthy and personal, its sweet yet sharp balsamic woodiness will stimulate all of your senses. Agarwood trees grow randomly in the forest, usually in difficult to reach places. A couple of them have made it down to our beach for the sake of this picture. Agarwood is also an aphrodisiac, both in oil form, and as incense. The Agarwood Tree is a new release by The Little Branch and it’s available at this round of Uber. Happy landscaping!
