Home from Home

I went to DRD the other day to buy the stunning new mainstore release called The Wedding and noticed the gorgeous plants and vines by HISA which were also part of the decoration. I knew they would look absolutely stunning at Deer River so after grabbing them and their latest group gift of the decking [...]

Gather the Family

Gather the Family

I am going on vacation in a couple of months. Like most of us it will be the first vacation for a few years and we have decided to go back to a hotel that we visited for the first time 20 years ago when our children were small. It's a family run, small hotel [...]

Cooking to the Beets

Cooking to the Beets

I'm back in the kitchen again this week with a beauty of a kitchen with so many options I'd go over my word count if I mentioned them all. As I'd taken a photo of a lighter rustic kitchen a week or so ago I wanted to use the darker option in this kitchen to [...]

A Clean Desk is a Sign of a Sick Mind

A Clean Desk is a Sign of a Sick Mind

I used to work with someone when I was younger that said that to me all the time...I am not a tidy desk person at all, in either life! That's had to change over the years as, in real life, we've moved more to a hotdesking approach to office space. Late last year I gave [...]

Celebrate Good Times!

Celebrate Good Times!

Yesterday got away from me a little bit and I was a little lazy. I'm not great at New Year and I find the lead up to it quite emotional and I never really expect to have a good time celebrating either. Isn't it always the way that when you least expect to have a [...]

The Christmas Dream

The Christmas Dream

The news in real life regarding Christmas festivities might not be good but SL is the place where we put all the fears and worries about rl on hold, albeit fleetingly, to enjoy the Christmas spirit in our virtual world. I've loved seeing everyone's photos of the season and yesterday I found myself with a [...]

Tropics Retreat

Tropics Retreat

A couple of weeks ago Mr Smith and I ventured to Kidaka Resort for a couple of days mid-week getaway.  I highly recommend this for a casual break but even more so this time of year when everywhere else, including my own region Snowdrops, is full of snow and wintery chills. It was partly that [...]

Christmas Sparkles

Christmas Sparkles

Not wanting to change my whole region which is set in a Spring season, I decided to make a skybox for our winter celebrations this year.  This is our dining area and I plan having some friends and family over on a few occasions to celebrate this holiday season. We'll have to make space for [...]

In Repose

In Repose

Happy Sunday! I was thinking today about what Sunday's used to be like when I was a child. Shops didn't open at all on Sunday's then and the pubs opened for a couple of hours at lunchtime and then closed again until later in the evening. It was housework day in our home too. We [...]
