Inside The Rabbit Hole

It’s all Home & Garden today; loads of pretty stuff from The Liaison Collaborative, plus a starring role by the lovely lamps from [ keke ] I showed the other day. While I love H&G, I do struggle with getting the right amount of clutter balanced with realism (or at least my version of realism). I tend to place things around the edges, leaving the centre bare. Which leads to me adding more things and moving stuff around until I barely recognise what I started out with. I do admire the work of dedicated H&G photographers; the credits alone make them worth their weight in gold!

This was supposed to be a completely different photo; I had to totally rework the credits after I finished processing and cropping. But sometimes the best intentions just go down the rabbit hole.

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.

Bunnies, Blooms and Baths

It is a Home & Garden extravaganza at my place right now. [ keke ] has been going wild with main store releases, including the adorable clipped sketches, refurbished spring drawers (available in three colours) and the glass lamps shown in my photo. In the rush to hit the big events on the grid, don’t forget the pleasure of browsing the home shops of some of your favourite designers. It is a much more relaxed way to shop, with less lag and no pressure to get in and out.

That being said, Bloom is off and running and {what next} has plenty of blooms to offer with their potted tulips, tulip wheelbarrow and pretty watering cans to keep those flowers fresh. They work perfectly together, so grab all the things.

The bathtub is from a larger set from Artis. If you read my blog regularly you can probably tell that I have fallen in love with this posemaker. This set is available at Pose Fair 2017. Do check it out.

And finally, I have fallen in love with the bunnies from JIAN at Collabor88. While they don’t come with Easter eggs, they are just perfect.

I can think of no better way to relax, reflect and revive than with bunnies, blooms and baths.
