Summer in the Light

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold, when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.

Charles Dickens

More spring feels in my second blog post of the day, I think it’s safe to say you won’t see a winter scene from me again for several months. I want sunshine, green trees, flowers in bloom and to have breakfast on the patio together with the love of my life before we go out and enjoy the day.

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.

The Study

Tuesdays newest release, the Rustic Bookshelves, is a set of two beautiful solid wood bookshelves; wide and narrow. They have a texture change menu with three wood options; Dark, Stained and Worn. They are Copy/Modify, can be resized and initial Land Impact is 2-3. Available right now at Cosmopolitan. I’ve also included some previous releases from Tuesdays in the scene; the Antique Desk and the Ringed Clock and Frames. You can find those in the Tuesdays mainstore.

The cozy bench, rug, candle tray, pillow and wall art between the bookshelves are all part of Barley‘s Scandinavia Set which was recently released for SaNaRae and should soon be available at the Barley Marketplace.

I collaborated with Mahogany on setting up this scene, check out her point of view here.

I Have Everything

Can we skip Monday? Pleeease? With a month left working a job I’m totally checked out from, my motivation is at an all time low. Let’s blog instead!

At this round of Cosmopolitan you can find the Pallets & Mattress set by GOOSE Home & Garden. Repurpose those pallets and make a cozy outdoor space. The set consists of a couple mattress with 32 single animations, 32 couple snuggle animations and 18 adult couple animations and a single mattress with 16 single animations. You’ll find mattress texture options in the sits menu. Use the lighted pallet wall to make it more private and cozy.

A Cup of Creativity

Happy Sunday everyone! I have a couple of new releases I want to show you today and I’d also like to welcome Sari-Sari {poses & deco} to my blog! Sari-Sari offers the very best in poses and decor and I’m very proud to get the opportunity to blog their products.

Since my vacation I’ve been lagging a little behind on my blog posts and I’ve been dying take pictures of the new Austin Set by Barley ever since I got back. Austin is a trendy cafe seating area complete with table, stools, and condiments! With the perfect matching chandelier and a beautiful shelving system for your coffee and tea needs. And just in time for Valentines Day….. a number of items for Love! I’m using one of the male sits that are found in the stool. The Austin Set is available at the Belle event until February 16th!

I’m holding the Urban Sketching Kit by Sari-Sari which will be available at The Liaison Collaborative starting February 3rd. The box contains a rezz/decor version and a wearable version with bento hold pose fit for m/f. Click on the sketchbook page to choose from 4 watercolor textures. For the wearable version, just adjust the position and size of the sketchbook and the brush to fit in your hands, if needed (I didn’t have to make any adjustments).

Apricity

Noun
(uncountable)(obsolete) The warmth of the Sun in winter.

The Polar Night has arrived where I live and I, unless I travel south, won’t feel the warmth of the Sun again for quite a while. The Sun will peek above the horizon again in about a month, but warmth? Maybe in February 😆

Today I’m featuring the Vintage Rocking Chair by DaD, which is out now exclusively at C88 until January 6th. The winter time calls for the warmth of a blanket and place to sit and sip some hot cocoa. The Vintage Rocking Chair is perfect just for that and great for both indoors and outdoors. It’s available in both adult and pg version or a decor version.

Santa Knows

I’m pretty sure I’m on his Nice list… but I guess it all depends on the definition of ‘naughty’.
