A Happy Squeaky Wheel

Snapshot_006

I think if Hart Larsson of PXL Creations got 10 lindens every time I say, please make Lelutka Head appliers, he could buy a car. An SL car at the very least. But squeaky wheels get greased and lo and behold, so do squeaky mesh heads. It will be available at We ♥ Role-play until the end of April. The dress is floral confection from The Annex for A Secret Affair.

I relaxed for a bit outside the converted dovecote from Scarlet Creative where I have been living this last month. The furnishings are all to be found at Collabor88 and you better go rickety-split because I think tomorrow is your last chance before you will have to run from store to store. Items are from Aria & The Loft, Second Spaces, Soy and Scarlet Creative.

There is strong shadow where there is much light.

“There is strong shadow where there is much light.”

Erratic released a sexy-as-all-hell lingerie set for Collabor88 this round. The set is called Eden. Like all Erratic designs, it is made exclusively for the Maitreya body. It comes with petite bows that are strategically placed to call all sorts of attention to all the right places. It has been released in a Secret Garden full of colors with an extra three bonus colors (monochrome, pistachio and rouge) in the fat pack. There are several pieces in the set, including stocking appliers for both Maitreya and Slink feet, the mesh pieces include a bra, basque and suspenders, suspenders, knickers and a thong, so you can choose the panty style you prefer.

Here are several home and garden pieces from this month’s Arcade and Collabor88. The house itself is a dovecote from Scarlet Creative, cleaned up and converted to a lovely little house, the loft is a delightful bedroom. The Ivy Ampersand is also found at Collabor88, a romantic planter from floorplan. The chandeliers, perfume bottles, picture frames and chaise long can be found at The Arcade from Aria, Ariskea and Zerkalo. The tub is an older item from Flowey.  The pillows on the window seat behind the tub are from Tarte, also at the Arcade.

Spring Forward..Because That’s Not Trite Enough

I am excited to have shed the gloom of winter on our island, spring is upon us full force. It’s time to revel in the warmth of the sea around us and enjoy this wonderful SL. Collabor88 this month is all about spring goodness, I’ve set up the gorgeous table and chairs from the Loft and Aria on my deck of the kitchen tree house.

I’m not even sure how much happier I could be this morning. It’s peaceful and beautiful here. I keep thinking I will move out of these tree houses but I’m not sure I can. I love them too much. Continue reading

At home with the macabre

“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”

I do not decorate my home for Halloween and only add a bouquet of colored glass bulbs and a gold tabletop Christmas tree for Christmas. My apartment is small and I don’t waste my limited storage space storing decorations. My second life, though, seems to have infinite storage space so I love to decorate there. Also, it’s much less work to pack up and move and also less expensive. Here,then is my home for fall inspired in part by the macabre aesthetic of Tim Burton. I began by tinting my Tabor Cottage from Barnesworth to saturated dark colors instead of the natural stucco that it was originally. There’s a barn in the background with a few animals and a dock on the water.

I added this prop fence from Vespertine because I loved the bright colors and though it did not add anything macabre to the home, I liked the colors and the idea of it. Not everything needs to be macabre.   Continue reading
