Not My Mama’s Perfume

1 Not My Mama's Perfume sm

While this definitely looks like it could have been my mother’s dressing table, this certainly isn’t my mama’s perfume. I can’t imagine my dear mum wearing a scent called “Lust”. Or maybe I just don’t want to believe that she would!

Kean Kelly of [ keke ] has created an exquisite perfume bottle gacha for the June round of The Chapter Four. It is a play on the 7 Deadly Sins, upgraded to include Greed, Boredom, Jealousy, Need, Pride, Revenge and the ever rare Lust. As always, these bottles are feminine, delicate and beautifully made. The iridescence of the texturing allows each bottle to play with the light, so be sure to place these where the sunlight can dance upon their surfaces. They are modifiable, so I chose to minimise my Lust; at least for the photo 😉

I’m late posting this, but the good news is that the crowds should have died down at The Chapter Four so you can easily sneak in to steal your mama’s perfume.

Pretty stuff I’m showing off:

More Roxie

1 Molichino 3

I am slowly working my way around the bedroom at the Roxie Beach House. At this rate, it will probably take me a month to show the whole house! I am hoping that I become more comfortable with taking interior shots and I might be able to finish more than one picture per day. Don’t hold your breath, though…blue is not a good colour for faces!

The bedroom is my favourite room in this house, although it was the last room I finished. It has been taken apart and redone more times than I can count and has had more details added after the fact than anywhere else. I am sure I will still tinker; there are a few items I have used that I am not totally happy with and I will replace when I find something I like better. In the meantime, though, I find it cozy, comforting and warm.

I did retexture the wall behind the bed – I wanted somthing to break up the solid off-white walls of the room. Since I have mentioned my appalling building skills on numerous occasions, I was thrilled with myself when I managed to change that single wall and not cover the entire house in pink stripes. Having once wallpapered an entire club with a picture of hot pink suede boots, I hope you can appreciate what an accomplishment this is for me!

I will slowly keep plugging away at photographing and sharing Roxie with you. Wait…did that sound right? Just a reminder, Roxie is the house – otherwise that sounds a little raunchy!

More Shabby Shininess

1 Spargel & Shine Annie 1

As I mentioned yesterday, I have more to show you from my visit to The Collage. I know, I know, I’ve been showing enough beds lately to open my own hotel, but I just couldn’t resist this one from Spargel & Shine! It, along with the matching dresser just had my Shabby Chic senses tingling with delight.

You see, both the bed and the dresser come “naked.” But with a click of a few buttons on their menus you can dress them up in all sorts of ways. The bed can be unmade (just the mattress showing) or you can have the patchwork quilt messy (including a messy version for sleeping under), or you can have it made – with or without the tea service tray showing. There are several options to choose from and I had fun playing with it for various looks. Important note: make sure the bed is Unmade before moving it; I made the mistake of rearranging the furniture with the quilt and blankets on display and they didn’t quite move along with the bed, even in edit mode. I was able to remedy this by rezzing a new copy, so no harm was done.

The dresser gives you the same type of fun choices. It comes bare, but you can choose to have the stool visible as it is in my photo or tucked neatly in the knee-hole. You also have your choice of how much stuff you want displayed on top – nothing, flowers only, flowers and lacy throw, with or without the vanity set or like I chose, with everything!

The painting above the bed by Dreamscapes Art Gallery and the trunk next to the bed by Thaino Designs also came from The Collage. That pretty much wraps up my display of treasures from this event. Everything else in the photo comes from Thaino Designs.

Sighs…no, the draw was too strong. I visited the Thaino Designs Mainstore. But it’s not just a mainstore; it is a series of Thaihiti Baroque’s houses all decorated with her home and garden wares. I wandered from house to house, picking up a few little trinkets that I just had to have and maybe…just maybe…I bought a new house. It might even be sitting empty on the homestead waiting to be decorated. I might even blog it once it is all shabbily prettied up 😉

Ergh…the rug isn’t centred under the bed. I didn’t notice it until I was processing the photo. It’s enough that it’s driving me crazy – please don’t hate on me!
