Autumn Comes

While I have been doing the credits for this post, the hour has grown later on Friday in Second Life. My apologies, but that means you have just a short while to get to the {what next} main store to pick up one of two autumn-themed boxes. One contains various versions of the lovely wreath I am displaying. The other holds decorative mini trees, leaves and welcome mats. Winter Thorn does autumn beautifully, so do go check out these fabulous bargains.

Speaking of bargains, Kean Kelly of [ keke ] has released recolours of one of my very favourite items ever: the rainy day table lamp. This weekend only, they are available at the main store for only 50L. I am showing the orange, but it also comes in black, white and purpur (a gorgeous pinkish-purple). At that price, there is no reason not to get all four! While you are there, go ahead and browse. Her store is one of those where you walk in to buy one thing and come out with your partner’s arms full, a U-Haul filled and your wallet happily empty.

However, you may want to hang onto a few Lindens for Shiny Shabby, which opens on September 20. There you will find [ keke ]’s Nirvana set. The complete set contains 34 pieces of wonder. From chairs to poufs, to decorative cards to incense, you will have to have them all. I’ll be showing you more of this set in the next few days, but trust me – you will waiting in anticipation for the event to open.

And then there is The Liaison Collaborative which remains open until September 30th. I am featuring a variety of gacha prizes from Serenity Style, Bee Designs and [Black Tulip] plus the gorgeous desk from [ zerkalo ], all from this round of TLC. While there are still a couple of weeks before the event closes, your best bet is to go now so you don’t forget!

Finally, the September round of Luxe Box released earlier today, and as always, it is full of stunning items. I love the fashion, but to me the real stars are the Kaelyn Pleiades Cabin from Scarlet Creative and the evelyn daybed from tarte.. Put everything together and you have the perfect, cozy cabin, ready for when autumn comes.

The Comfort of a Cozy Room

1 The comfort of a cozy room sm

Everyone needs one – a room where you can display your favourite things, work on projects, curl up with a good book or just relax and enjoy the solitude. It may be a sewing room, a library or a playroom – it doesn’t matter, really, as long as it reflects what makes you happy.

What makes me happy is lots of pretty things. The beauty of Second Life is that I can create this type of space as many times as I would like in any fashion that suits my whimsy. Today, it is kind of an arts and crafts room. Who knows? Tomorrow it may be a padded cell 😉

A lot of the things in this room are from {what next}, including the bookcase and tables, which are available today for Fifty Linden Friday. Just head over to the main store to pick up yours. You’ll be well on the way to creating the comfort of a cozy room.

First Date, Last Date

1 First Date, Last Date crop sm

I obviously had a lousy first date. I am actually using a couples pose – you can see why my partner didn’t make it onto the pose stand. And yes, this is the last date, too.

Don’t think you are limited to using two people with couples or friends poses. Frequently you can use one or the other of the two poses as a single. That is the case with this pose from !bang for Fifty Linden Friday (FLF), called “my world.” While he didn’t rock mine, the female half of this pose did, so you’re seeing it here. FLF is a one-day sale, so make sure you stop by tomorrow (September 25th) to pick up one of the two couples poses Luna has on special. And while you’re there, don’t miss out on her gift card sale – they are 50% off September 25-27. That’s a bargain at…um….half the price!

I took the opportunity to show off some of the pretties at this round of Shiny Shabby, including the top, skirt and the shoes from . Yes, if you look closely enough you can see them! I also took the opportunity to give you another sneak preview of Rwah’s sim. I am hoping that if I keep giving you snippets of her work that she’ll actually get around to opening it to the public 😉 Stay tuned – I’ll add the SLurl if she ever does. It’s the perfect place to go on a first date – you can hang onto him if you like him and if you don’t, well, you can just hang him!
