The Penthouse

The girls wanted to take a photo and asked if I had anything I could set up and of course I did.  I just became a blogger for Scafall.  This weekend's SL Home Decor Sale has the PG Chaise, side table, and rug on sale for 75L each. I feel like the house wives of Second Life up in the penthouse with this photo.  I always love when I can get together with the girls for a photo.

Welcome to my home


I want to welcome you to my home.  I decorate my house with many of the things I blog and I would like to show you more than just a photo.  For one week from today until February 29th I will be allowing people to visit my house and enjoy the house/landscaping.  When you head to the office their is a book touch and receive a note card for a scavenger hunt.  The first 10 people who complete the hunt and return the filled out note card back to me will get 200L each.  It's just something fun to do.  I hope you enjoy my Easter filled home as much as I do.

Sunny Morning

 

I can not wait for a sunny morning to happen.  We are still in the throws of winter around this joint.  The cold and the wind make not so nice days.  Come on spring where are you?

Mountain Herding

 


I really love how this scene worked out.  It reminds me of my Aitachi, who immigrated over to the United States from Spain.  Upon arrival he and helped as a cook supporting the sheepherding operation in Ely, NV.  He found love and moved to my hometown to help raise his family.  He continued to help with sheepherding from time to time in the Sutter Buttes, the smallest mountain range in world.  When I was younger I would accompany him to the spring family picknicks while my brothers would accompany him to dock tails and such.

Old McDonlad by Dench Designs* and The Forest Trunkhouse by F&M* can both be found at the SL  Living Expo.  Don't forget to check out todays entertainment line up.

Raindale Turns 8!

Raindale turns 8 years old and you know what that means right......a hunt.  Each hunt item is set to $8L (look for the special cupcakes like in my photo).  Not only is there a hunt and the entire store (except gift-cards and 50L promos) are on sale at 30% off from February 5th -11th.  Raindale is the very first store that allowed me to blog home decor for them.  It kickstarted my whole home decor aspect of my blog and love for decor. After the sale the store will be remodeling.  Keep an eye out for wonderful new items to come from Raindale this year.

16 Years in SL

 

I have spent 16 years in Second Life.  My birthday was just a few days ago.  My RL has ebbed and flowed during that time.  My friends in SL who had kids now have college age children.  I have had children and moved a few times either with or without internet (gasp).  I have gone from being very active in SL to SL taking a more passive role in my life.  

Throughout this adventure I have made many friends.  I have lost some and I have kept the best.  They have listened and provided RL advice when I needed it.  SL has become so much more than just a game.  I was a model in the early days when it was everything.  I have transitioned to blogging and meeting the most wonderful, talented and giving designers.  

Our world looks better now than it did 16 years ago, but it has also lost some of the small touches that made it extra unique.  I look forward to finding friends, decorating and maybe spending some time on that inventory of mine.  Here's to many more years in Second Life.

Horsing Around @ The SL Living Expo

The SL Expo, an American Cancer Society Event, opened yesterday.  It replaced the SL Home and Garden Expo last year.  This event boasts music events/performances, events, art walk, street market, Vehicle show, decorating contests and shopping.  You can find out all about it at https://sl-living-expo.org/

Am rocking the Teegle Donkey Avatar* which will make you the horse.  It is a new release that can be found at the event.  The wonderful skins are by Run For The Roses*.  Head on over to find each unique skin that I used in my photos.

I stopped to look out at the sea as the breeze picked up and cooled me down from my trot across the different sims.

I wandered through the different sims and looked at all the magnificent landscaping.  My Donkey became quite hungry after its journey.
