The Nook

It's no secret that I do love a good mainstore release. I'd love to see more stores doing regular mainstore releases...mainly because when I go to their stores I find so many things I've missed. This Winter Brunch set from Nutmeg was released a few days ago at the Nutmeg mainstore.  If you are a [...]

Ready For Spring?

Ready For Spring?

I know I keep banging on about being over winter in SL but I really, really am! I was happy to add a splash of colour and some spring feels into this photo. I am super behind with blogging while Salon 52 was coming together and tomorrow is the dreaded pantomime performance! Yikes - it's [...]

Under Ice

Under Ice

"It's wonderful Everywhere, so white The river has frozen over Not a soul on the ice Only me skating fast I'm speeding past trees Leaving little lines in the ice Cutting out little lives in the ice Splitting, splitting sound Silver heels spitting, spitting snow There's something moving under Under the ice, moving under ice [...]

Forgotten Fun

Forgotten Fun

You'd think that the older we get the less risk averse but that's not the case. When I was a kid I'd be the first in line at the amusement parks for the biggest, tallest rollercoasters and the scariest, most gut-churning rides. It has been a while since I went to an amusement park in [...]

Hide Away Hideaway

Hide Away Hideaway

“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” Shannon L. Alder Happy Tuesday! Short and sweet post again today I'm afraid with more goodies from 6 Republic and an exterior shot of the Scarlet Creative Carpenter's Shed that I featured the interior of [...]

My Top 10 – Landscaping & Garden Items

As some of you know from following my blog I have dabbled in the past with youtube videos. I do some videos for third parties and I have also enjoyed recording myself decorating and then speeding it up so people can see an hour (or more) of work come together in just a few minutes. [...]
