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.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

Plucking petals is a perplexing way to determine a passionate dalliance. But perhaps it is as scientific as any other type of chemistry.

I am having fun with the poses from Pose Fair 2017. To stage this scene, I combined two poses: the base pose is part of the Angel seat from Artis and the hand and face position is created by adding one of the Bento poses from [addme.]. I am loving the ability to customise poses that Bento has brought to the grid. It is the difference between having a good shot become a perfect one.

I missed last month’s Luxe Box, so I made sure to get in early for April, and I wasn’t disappointed. I adore this ponytail from Moon. Hair. and the jumpsuit from ISON is typically sublime. While you can see little of the skybox from hive in the photo, it is one of my favourites from this subscription box. Don’t be surprised if you see it featured again.

*plucks another petal and stops…was that a “He loves me” or a “He loves me not?”

Sparkly, Shiny, Silky, Satiny

1 Sparkly Shiny Silky Fluffy sm

Wasn’t I a happy girl to find these sparkly, shiny pendants from [ keke ] and the silky, satiny shoes from Apple May Designs waiting for me? These are just the kinds of things that send my squee-factor off the charts!

[ keke ] has released these pendants for the August round of The Forest. It has just opened today (August 11th) and runs through the 25th. This is the second month for this unique event, where you pay one flat group joining fee, then collect all of the pretties scattered through the forest. There are no surprises; you can wander around the venue to see what is offered before joining the group and picking up your items. With 21 top designers participating, it is well worth the investment. Just remember you need to rejoin the group each month. All details can be found on The Forest Event blog.

If you are one of the fortunate ones who has been able to make it into Collabor88 this month for the 5th anniversary edition, you are not only lucky but have probably seen these shoes from Apple May Designs. If you are still waiting to get in, then mark them down on your “must have” list – they are gorgeous! The texturing is divine and the bow at the ankle makes these the perfect date night heels. Perfect….did I mention that they are perfect???

Feast your eyes then scroll through the credits to find all of these sparkly, shiny, silky, satiny things I know you’ll want for your own.
