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.

The Abandoned Greenhouse is beautiful in its own way, because the care and attention to detail and texturing is amazing, as always, by NTD. It has kooldoor system and land impact is 28 LI. Permissions are Copy / Modify. Available right now at Cosmopolitan.

The colorful Koa flower from Yugen grows wild outside the greenhouse together with the Fortuna lemon trees, also by Yugen. The Koa flower comes in two different groupings; Koa a is 2 LI, Koa b is 1 LI. Fatpack contains a 20 color HUD, ombre colors are full pack exclusive. Permissions are Copy / Modify.

The Fortuna tree from Yugen is a stunningly beautiful lemon tree. 4 different shapes in the pack, high and low LOD versions. 5 color bark and leaf HUD. Permissions are Copy / Modify. You can find both the Koa flower and the Fortuna tree at the Yugen mainstore.

Les Ecuries de Valpennac

Need a mansion for your horses? Need stables to suit your mansion? Here you go; Les Ecuries by Never Totally Dead is a grandiose build both in looks and scale and if you’re familiar with NTD you’ve already figured out that this is their latest addition to the Valpennac 1705 series of builds and decor. It houses 6 luxurious stalls with nameplates; edit linked and select face to put your own texture in the nameplates. Two disposable rooms on either side of the stalls, for equipment storage or whatever you decide to use them for.

Footprint: BIG (46 x 18 roughly). Land Impact: 241. Copy/Modify.

Out Of Their Control

Anarchy doesn’t mean out of control; it means out of their control.

Route 69

When we’re not on SL, M and I often watch horror shows together on Netflix (screen share in Discord for the win!). Her passion for the genre has opened my eyes to Norwegian horror as we’ve watched Cave and are now enjoying the Bloodride short stories. Villmark and Cold Prey are definitely also now on the ‘to watch’ list! This scene I’ve created doesn’t look anything like Norwegian horror though; no dark forest, no looming mountains or cracking glacier… but would you stay at the Wander Inn?

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.

Let’s Dance To Our Dreams Together Tonight

Of course you love each other every day and you don’t really need Valentine’s Day to prove it. It’s nice to celebrate that love by doing something together out of your everyday routines. Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to do just that.

Give your special someone an experience to remember with the ‘Oh My, Valentine’s Basket’ from DaD Virtual Living. The stationary vintage basket is modeled after a hot air balloon ride. The basket is in natural light wood with cushioned blanket, pillows and throw with flying heart balloons in a muted red and white color. It will look fantastic in your garden, in a meadow or on a beach! It is available in both PG and Adult and packed with plenty of animations: single, friend, cuddle and adult. 13 Land Impact. Copy/Modify.

The trio of small rock cairns just in front of the basket is Never Totally Dead…‘s gift at the Valentine’s Shop & Hop event. 1 Land Impact. Copy/Modify. Resize menu upon Touch.

January

It’s not exactly looking like winter outside my house right now, but this is how January usually looks where I’m from and if you’re wondering, yes it usually takes a while for the plow trucks to clear all the roads after the nightly snowfall. The rainstorm I’m experiencing right now is a blizzard just a little further north. I talked to my mum on New Year’s Eve and she’d given up shovelling snow for the day; she lit the fireplace and settled down indoors for the rest of the evening.

At Uber you can find a new release by The Little Branch; the Forest Pansy Tree. While it is the perfect tree for small gardens and courtyards, it is also found in open woodlands, thickets, woodland margins, limestone glades and along rocky streams and bluffs. The tree is lightly animated, 6 Li out of the box but it’s Copy/Modify so you can scale it down, or up, to fit your needs. Touch it for a season changer menu.

Cozy Christmas

Looking for a complete Christmasy living room set? Here’s the ‘Magical Christmas Eve’ Living Room by Aphrodite Shop/Heart Homes; available as PG or Adult and you get the couch, chair, trunk table, potted tree, potted plants, hot choco cups, wall art with string lights, table decor and rug. Grab it at the Aphrodite Shop mainstore or marketplace and you’re all set for the Holidays!

EED is at the Christmas Expo with two different versions of the Stuff’nStuffed Christmas tree. A chique and a boho version and I’m showing the Chique one in my picture. Also, EED has an advent calendar going, so you might want to hop on over to their mainstore and check that out.

At the SOS Christmas Fair, exclusively and limited to the event, you can find the wonderful ‘Wishing You..’ candle carousel by Never Totally Dead… With three different wishes; Joy, Happiness and Hope.

Last but certainly not least, DaD has a new group gift out for you! Group members can grab the ‘Santa Claus Cozy Sack’ at the mainstore!

The Rat Hole

Looking at this building, I don’t think they serve food here anymore. Ah, it’s a small club! The Rat Hole is a new amazing build by Never Totally Dead… I’m not sure I’d eat the food here if they have any, but the music is awesome. This build is a great addition to your urban sim, 59 Li out of the box, touch it to rez a snow cap (19 Li). The Rat Hole is available right now at Cosmopolitan.
