A Place to Unwind

The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.

Sydney J. Harris

“Decorating your Second Life dream home isn’t just about filling space. It’s about the freedom to express your tastes and interests with every choice”. Starting off with a quote by Froukje Hoorenbeek, Dutchie Design founder and owner, as I am welcoming Dutchie to my blog with a feature of their most recent release, the Sleigh Bed. Dutchie’s sleigh bed is, like all furniture by Dutchie, made with great attention to detail in both design, textures and animations. The bed is color-changeable into 9 colors for the blanket and spread. You can find the color change menu in the Sits menu. The bed comes in 4 versions: PG, Adult FM, Adult FFM and Adult FMM. All have AVsitter experience enabled for auto attaching props and all animations have Bento hand poses and animations. The Dutchie Sleigh Bed is available right now at FaMESHed.

Do You Remember?

You’re looking at the complete Muniick Lorraine Vintage Living Room collection, as Muniick released the Lorraine Living Room Set B last weekend and this was the final set in the collection. When I rezzed the pieces I was immediately pulled back in time to my own 1980’s childhood. This was a very typical living room in the late 1970’s through early 1980’s. My grandparents had this exact couch. Slightly different cushion colors but it was this exact couch and 2 chairs and an ottoman. And I remember one of the rooms in my parents’ house had that wallpaper, a wallpaper which I managed to find on the marketplace while looking for 70’s wallpapers. Got to love it! We also had one of those string and nail schooners hanging on the wall. I think I broke it.

The Silly Shibes II pack is now available at the JIAN mainstore as Copy / Mod fatpack! I used a couple of the static decor puppers for this picture. They are just too adorable!

While I was on vacation last month, Sari-Sari released the super cute Sansevieria/Snake Plant in a turtle pot, you gotta love them! Green (Zeylanica) and Yellow (Laurentii) varieties to choose from. They are now available at the Sari-Sari mainstore.

Our Cabin Getaway

I’m not planning on going on a vacation this year but if I was, it would be to stay at a cabin or a house far away from people. Oh, that would be no different from where I live!


For those who wants their own little getaway cabin, there’s the Summer Tree House Patio from Crowded Room that’s available right now at Summer Camp, it is surprisingly roomy! Get to your vacation spot in the classic summer mobile; the [777] Wombi by 777 Motors, which is also at Summer Camp. Splash around in the Oval Frame Pool by CHEZ MOI, you can find it at Cosmopolitan. Keep the puppers cooled down with the Doggo Sprinklers from Krescendo. Yes, yes, they will water the grass as well. Yes I mean the sprinklers. The Doggo Sprinklers are available at Black Fair. I found a nice outdoor shower for my cabin getaway over at the InsurreKtion mainstore; the Ibiza Set. And hey, Muniick has made a Classic Webstrap Lawn Chair and Campfire Set bundle for Happy Weekend, only 60L$! This is the final weekend for Muniick’s 2nd anniversary sale which ends Sunday night so hurry on over to the Muniick mainstore and grab some deals before they are gone!

A cabin vacation is more fun if your special person is there and… Puppers! Which brings me to a new release by Jian! You can find their Akita Summer Collection at the anniversary round of The Epiphany. Collect all 30 varieties of Akita Inu pups and adults (plus VIP lantern akitas!) and celebrate summer with Japanese-themed goods to eat and comfy yukatas to wear. Don’t wanna play the gacha to get your akitas? Okay, don’t! Buy the FATPACK and get all of the items in the collection in copy permissions with HUD driven scripting instead for a one-time price. Now, there’s so much goodness in this collection and for this picture I’m only showing a held pup, a wanderer pupper and a wanderer adult. The collection contains so much more be sure to check it out.

Roadside Lunch

Spring is just barely on it’s way here in northern Norway, with 60 cm (2 ft) of snow over the weekend slowing down the progress to almost a complete stop. We call it thawing snow… The snow that falls at the end of April, usually on top of snow that has started melting, with the result that the melting process goes faster. 60 cm is just too much on top of the 60 cm that was already there! Soon though, I will be able to enjoy a roadside lunch like this one. Soon.
