Welcome To 1307 Bird Ln.

There’s still 2-3 feet of snow on the ground where I live in real life. Yes, the thaw has started but spring has definitely arrived at 1307 Bird Lane in Second Life. The blackbirds are occupying the mailbox and it’s ok because we hardly ever use it anymore anyway. The plum tree outside the wall is starting to bear fruit and the car is clean inside and outside and it looks brand new again! Ok yeah, I’m really longing for spring now.

A Walk In The Park

Literally. That’s what it is, a walk in the park. When I lived in the city the puppies and I walked in the park every day. It was a beautifully landscaped park but it didn’t have a beautiful fountain or stone benches, like the Andover Park Gacha Collection from Refuge. Collect all the pieces at this round of The Arcade.

He Was A Dreamer

I’m always careful not to clutter my blog pictures too much because every little item that’s created with love and care by the designer deserves to be seen. Also, I feel the items I use have to compliment each other for it to make sense for me to put them together in a scene. As a general rule, less is more. I went a li’l bit artsy this time and it’s not a coincidence that I chose to place a single empty chair in a way that makes it stand out – One of my pictures has been selected for the ValiumSL’s Empty Chair Gallery opening exhibit! The ValiumSL – Marfa, Texas sim Grand Opening and gallery opening is Saturday 30th at 11 AM SLT. ALL are welcome!

I’m lost for words when it comes to these two new releases I’m blogging today. Just, wow. The texturing work and the care for detail in both is stunning.

Cupid’s Chair by Refuge is now available at Cosmopolitan. Available in pink, purple, red and white and with silver or gold frame. Individual purchases available or buy the fatpack. 9 single sit animations included. Copy / Modify.

The Blake & Blanche Sets by KOPFKINO are two different versions of the same set. Blake in high contrast black and silver and Blanche in softer white and gold. The sets contain fireplace, fireplace tools, grandfather clock with and without decor, picture frame, caged candles and rug. Both sets are available now, in the KOPFKINO mainstore, to purchase as fatpack or individual items. Group members will receive a 30% discount on the fatpacks until Sunday, Januray 31st 2021.

Sander’s Little Helpers

Hello everyone! Let me start off by saying that this is a very real scenario for me, it has happened and it will happen again. Probably every Christmas for as long as I’m blessed with the company of my puppies. As soon as wrapping paper, presents and baubles appear, I can eat my Danish Pastry in peace. Mahogany, this is a glimpse into your future I hope you like it 😛

In the tree ornament gacha area of Tannenbaum you can find the Starlite Ornaments by Refuge. Sparkly baubles and strands and stars, moons and icosahedrons in white, gold, copper and black. Beautiful! Like all gacha items these are no copy but transfer.

GOOSE is at the early December round of Cosmopolitan with the Holiday Fireplace set; fireplace, candles, cone tree, garland and star deco all part of the set which is Copy / Modify.

The delicious Danish Pastry and Chocolate Latte are both from Cinoe and they of course dispense wearable and eatable food and drink with Bento animations, with or without Experience. Find your favorite Mannish Danish at the December round of The Arcade and the Fluffy Chocolate Latte is only 50L at Anthem (opens tomorrow December 3rd).

Did you pick up your gifts at FaMESHed yet? The Christmas Branch Decor behind me is DaD‘s Christmas gift at this event.
