The White Greenhouse

This will be very quick so I can post before I head off to work. Even though this is a short week for me, it is already feeling as if I have worked a full one.

I would much prefer to be relaxing here in the white greenhouse, surrounded by many beautiful things. The scene was created by my sister, CrankyGit, and will soon be transported to her sim, Frayed Sanity. It may already be there; I shot this on the weekend and haven’t been in world to see her progress.

Whether it has made it to the public domain or not, do stop by. It is a very serene and peaceful sim; a departure from her usual style, yet with her own tasteful yet quirky stamp on it. The white greenhouse is a recolour of the fabulous old garden greenhouse from [ keke ] in the March round of Deco(c)rate. I think I love it more than the original.

I’ll keep it in mind while I make my commute this morning and trudge through my workday.

Fantastical Dreams

1 Fantastical Dreams sm

No matter what you choose to have as your focus in Second Life, it can turn out to be your Fantastical Dreams. That is what riannlyn (Rainny Darkfury) and her sister, Nikki Lacey, have done. They have created a picturesque fantasy-styled sim to showcase their very real creative talents.

The sim is great for photos, socialising and just having fun. In Rainny’s own words:

It’s a place you can always come, visit, cuddle, play games, hangout, if you are in the group. To get into the group is a join fee of 250L. This also gives you rez rights – just remember to clean up after yourself. To join the group, copy & paste this link into local chat in world: secondlife:///app/group/33aca8e7-c6e0-8576-3275-ab2a0451a21c/about . Or, there is a group joiner board at the entrance.

I visited today, and I was delighted. It is a lovely place, just screaming to be photographed. “Ground level” is a water-filled fantasy with loads of places to stop and rest, or cuddle if you are with your partner. There is a series of floating islands that includes an area for games, another with a lovely lake and yet another with a gigantic tree house. It has some familiar items, but what I love the most is there are lots and lots of new and unfamiliar quality items. For instance, you will probably recognise the tree tunnel from Studio Skye, but you may not have yet seen the bed from Cheeky Pea, which was just released a few days ago. In other words, it is not a carbon copy of other sims on the grid, with just the props rearranged. I have created a slide show below to tempt you with the beautiful and whimsical scenery.

If you have any questions, you can IM Rainny or Nikki in world. The joining fee is not expensive, but it is just enough to keep griefers at bay. And it is a small price to pay for your very own fantastical dream.
