Between Things Known and Things Unknown

There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.

Aldous Huxley

Perception is an opinion or belief, based on how things seem. Your perception of who someone is, is not who they really are and don’t let someone else’s perception of you define who you are. People will always see you the way THEY want, you will always be who YOU are. Value your integrity and character and you never have to explain yourself to anyone.

Run Away With Me

NTD‘s La Fontaine du Triton is such a beautiful piece I was wondering for a long time how I could do it justice in a picture. Until I realized I already had the scene set up, it just needed a few adjustments, a couple in love and voilá! It turned out a classic.

The fountain is a fantastic centerpiece to your city square or a park. You can turn the water on and off by touching the statues. Available at this round of Cosmopolitan.

The Docks

Filled with inspiration after rezzing the new Victorian Mooring Dock from GOOSE I was tempted to decorate the whole sim like this! It would be way too time consuming though, I do have other blog posts to work on, so I pulled only two copies of the dock and managed to stop when I had the picture I wanted. The Victorian Mooring Dock is available right now at Cosmopolitan.

Never Totally Dead… had the beautiful Vintage Booth released for the Valentine’s Shop & Hop in February. Several texture options for it and it should be available at their mainstore now.

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.

Flâneur

The French have the perfect word for it: ‘Flâneur’. It means to stroll around aimlessly but enjoyably, observing life and your surroundings. Baudelaire defined a flaneur as ‘a person who walks the city in order to experience it’.

Gemma Burgess

Lookie! GOOSE made their first living room set! The Crupet Living Room Set (PG/Adult) is a full living room set with couches (containing animations and texture changing options), coffee table, shelves, plant and wall art and the set is available at Cosmopolitan for a few more days. Buy the full set or separate pieces.

DaD has made the most fun lamps, “The Time is Pipe Collection” is available at this round of The Ephiphany. Touching the lamps gives you a menu for the lights; on/off, intensity, colour and access. I have chosen to use four lamps that fit my living room, but there are actually 10 different lamps in the collection so make sure you take a look here for the full gacha key.

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.
