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 fri.day . 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!
