Yesterday it became official! We were on trial with two adorable little girls Juliana and Melanie and our trial came to an end and I think they are the most adorable, and amazing kiddos ever. So fun and interactive and I’m so happy to welcome them home.
Last week we started decorating their room. I gathered the girls up to the platform and put out a bunch of things and they made of pile of some of the stuff that they wanted and then I took the pile of saved stuff and rezzed in the house and we started moving it all around and of course they added stuff and I’m so happy with their room!
Sometimes its a bit tricky getting all the things that you want to work together in a room and furniture for kids in Second life can be a bit tricky. The Penelope beds from Mudhoney “wowwed” me at first sight and the canopy over the beds is something that my god bebe did and I fell in love with and used it for their room. Mudhoney also made these pretty ruffled curtains.
The canopy is from an older garden party set from Cheeky Pea with Pilot. I’m not certain on where it is now but its from one of those stores.
Lark has many cute things also for a child room. Some of the panda stuff, the mobiles, some of the books and the cupcakes. Apple Fall has many little odds and ends like the frames on the wall, the dream sign, the little doll house and the dress form.
I would also try Half Deer for the pandas in the corner and Floorplan little lights, books on the floor and things. Mishmish is another favorite of mine too – the peacocks, and fairy and so many cute things.
Their room is one of my favorites in the house. I’m still decorating but I hope to post more soon!
Cheeky Pea has made some beautiful new furniture releases for the Home Show which is finally opened now! I’ve been showing teasers for a few days now but you can actually go check out these shiny new things here:
The neat thing about the chairs and couch is that you can tint them any color your heart desires, there is even a card letting you know how! I like this furniture a lot and it also has really cute sits and comes in either pg or adult. If you don’t know what the Home Show is you can check out the blog here: http://homeshowsl.wordpress.com/
Aren’t they cute? Posing in front of this What Next Ice cream cart is my God Daughter Evie and her brother Alex. I saw them in their outfits and immediately thought of this ice cream cart and I had to snap a pic. They are the cutest!
The Liaison Collaborative -Sandbridge, opened this last weekend and I found it to be one of my favorite rounds yet. I loved and bought many of the garden items (I have my eye on that pool from the loft but I don’t know where to put it) but seriously.. designers? You did a great job this round and I appreciate you! You have until July 10th to check this out, here is your taxi ride: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Nest/192/197/22
I found a miniature bounty of goods this morning when I was poking around The Nest
I wanted some cute, but cheap Easter decorations and I stumbled on to a small collection of goodness. I have not finished but I collected the What Next Easter Eggs, the Mister Whiskers Tea Set from Cheeky Pea and some odds and ends that will come in handy from Zigana. I love these little things that add a touch of realness to my SL Home. Guess what, though with the exception of the Draw Shelves I have shown, this stuff was free and there are many more things out for you to grab too!
This is a list of the participants:
End of Daze
You have until the 30th to go grab everything!
A friend of mine, KateMarie Westminster has opened a new store on the marketplace for her store Westminster Family Homes in hopes of making many homes in SL especially for families. Her builds are low in prim, this is a five bedroom home with only 225 prims and it partially mesh for only 555L on promo. It’s a steal!
There is currently no in world store but if you send her a note card she would be more than happy to show you the house in world. You can check out the Beckett here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/PROMO-Westminster-Family-HomesThe-Beckett-Family-Home/4518244
I decorated it a bit and used furniture that you can get from Lisp, Apple Fall, Cheeky Pea, Pilot, the Loft and What Next. It is very cute and I know that she has another really cute house coming out soon.
So, have you been enjoying the Four Walls Hunt? I know that I have. I love love love hunts that feature home stuff and so far this has been one of my favorites. I mean who can beat the prices as well, 20L for some of this great stuff? Crazy!
In this post I have stuff from Mudhoney, Pilot, Cleo Design, Cheeky Pea, Vespertine, Abiss and Digs. I totally love how I can just sort of throw everything together and it looks so nice, many of the items of mesh and very low prim too. Seraphim SL even made a cool gallery here: http://seraphimsl.com/2013/01/20/four-walls-hunt/ You can look at all the items separately.
In this post I am wearing a beautiful 70L Skin from Al Vulo that is at the Dressing Room Fusion. The Mesh Purse in my hand is new from Glam Affair. I’m wearing brand new hair from Mister Truth Hawks, A new long sleeve shirt with my Lolas from Izzie Button of Izzies, and pants from Boom that were on sale for Fifty Linden Friday. My jewelry is from Cae (Cae is Fifty percent off this week at Truth District!) and Yummy and my poses are from Purple Poses.
.Happy Homes. a new venture by Amaliscious Destiny or Eve Daines, of La’Licious Designs has released (currently only to the Marketplace but either is able to show homes inworld until they have an in world rezzer for homes) this two bedroom, well three if you count the large attic (which I used as a bedroom) home.
I love this house, it is conservative in prims as it uses sculpts and mesh and weighs in at only 151 prims which.. is amazing to me for all the house you get. The houses features a Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Laundry Area, Full Attic, and a Secret room for kids as well as all windows open/close on touch. Lights turn on/off by switches. Ceiling fans all work by touch too.
I think this makes an excellent home for anyone, there is a lot of room to grow too if you have an SL family. The house is also Mod/Copy if you need to change anything, though I wouldn’t. I love the palette of wall colors, they went with just about everything that I had. This home is very impressive and pleasing to the eye of anyone that I’ve shown.
I used many different SL furniture designers to decorate. A few of my favorite places that I have shown in decoration of the house include Ionic, Mudhoney, The Loft, Lisp, What Next, Tiny Spaces, Floor Plan, Apple Fall, Cheeky Pea, Pilot, MMG, ITutu, and North West (but North West is closed) and probably more that I’m not thinking about right now.. but those are only “some” of my favorites. If you see something in this post though and want to know what it is, I would be happy to tell you.
If you’ve made it to the end of this post, yay! If you would like to see this house in world there is now an inworld rezzer here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Perfect%20Isle/167/45/2000
Yesterday, something wonderful happened.. and do you know what that is? Why Collabor88 came back for another round of exceptional items! Everything that I’m wearing in this post including my scenery (with the exception of my eyes and tights) is from this round of Collabor88′s “Frostbitten”.
This is one of my favorite rounds to date. Everything is of incredibly high quality and beauty. I am wearing the Valerie hair from Wasabi Pills, The crystal earrings from La Gyo. I am wearing the Frostbitten Amberly Skin from Glam Affair as well as the Scarf from Boom, the dress from Ingenue and the boots from Hucci. The standing poses are from Marukin.
This wonderful Cottage in the background is from Trompe Loeil as well as the trees. The Winter Camping set with, sleeping bags, Igloo, Fire Pit, Kettle, sleds (that you can actually sled with!) and sitting log is from Cheeky Pea.. and has amazing poses and animations. The set is flawlessly done. I had some fun taking the photos too!
Are you ready for this weekend in Second Life shopping? I’m seriously so excited. First of all this skin from Glam Affair called Amberly just came out today and I will be working on a much larger post of it but I wanted to encourage everyone to go to Glam Affair and try a demo of this beautiful skin!
Also the pose that I am using in this set comes out tomorrow from Exposeur, and its a modesty wreath that is playful and sexy all rolled into one. RubyStarlight Writer makes some amazing poses over there at Exposeur and if you join her Exposeur Gold Group there are a ton of very generous group gifts for you.

The furnishing for my room are form a mix of Cheeky Pea, Pilot and Lisp. I had to cut the pic down to size but there is a full version of it on my flickr but with the stuff at Collabor88 this month you could easily furnish a very cool room.
