Much Needed Calm

Hello, bunnies, and happy August!! I got back from my vacation on Saturday night and I think I need a vacation to recover from it! Isn’t that always the way? Unfortunately, it wasn’t QUITE as relaxing as I hoped [and wayyyy more hot than I anticipated!] so I’m definitely enjoying some peace and quiet in SL today.

Style - Much Needed Calm

What Next is at Collabor88 this month with the cutest thing! The Lisbeth Garden Blanket is just super adorable for sitting outside. Or inside, if that’s how you roll! You don’t have to use all the props and lights, and the blanket/pillows have 5 different textures to choose from. There are several sits for both singles and couples, too.

I missed The Neighborhood sale on the 8th, but Leila’s Garden Gates by Windsong are an in store release that are very affordable [landscaping items can get pricy!] and also just darling! There are different colors/prints to choose from.

Happy shopping!

Let’s Take A Walk

The weather here has been awesome lately, and it makes me want to go on long walks to see what I can see. But mostly I just want to walk around in my new Portas Booties!!

Style - Let's take a walk

From AnE Meshworks, an Adam n Eve brand, these little booties are short, cute, and in the most soft lickable leather I’ve seen in ages! They ARE mesh, so you know the drill. Get a mesh viewer or GTFO. :-p I kid, I kid!! But seriously, you need a mesh viewer to see these boots properly.

I’m standing in the Cascadia Autumn Pavilion from Funky Junk, on sale this weekend for Spruce Up Your Space. It’s the perfect autumn decor for your land!

Time to take my boots and go walking!

I love bluebonnets in the spring

So like I said in my last post [god, I am slow lately!], Funky Junk came out with a house that is very near and dear to me. Why? Well, for one, it’s based off an idea I showed to Funky Junk creator Ulaa Coronet, and she totally put her own spin on it and made it ten times better than I imagined. And two, she named it after my sim – Bluebonnet!

Style - Bluebonnet House

Gorgeous, right? It features a wide porch [necessary because I MUST have a place to drink my sweet tea!], two balconies, and a good sized patio. Inside, it has JUST the right amount of rooms – living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. There’s also a little area that you could do pretty much anything with.

Check out the pics of the inside!

The living room/front entry way.

Spacious kitchen.

Upstairs area – I turned it into a reading nook!

Bathroom. [Could easily be a small bedroom if you don’t get down with bathrooms in SL.]

Style - Bluebonnet Bathroom

Bright and cheery bedroom! My favorite room in the house!

Style - Bluebonnet bedroom

The Bluebonnet house is 267 prims and is a 17×29 footprint. It is copy/mod, so you can mod away to your heart’s content to make it fit your style better. But of course, this is exactly MY style, so I didn’t have to do anything to it except fill it with furniture. 🙂 Head over to Funky Junk and rez a demo! You will just fall in love with it!

There’s no way I could possibly name all the furniture/accessories I’ve used in this house, but here are a few of the stores where you can shop for great home/garden things!

Here fishie, fishie, fishie…

I love the Pocket Gardens by Stormy Aluveaux and Carter Denja. Anytime I need an instant garden [because I’m horrible at landscaping!], I pull mine out and boom! Insta-pretty! I was super happy to see the new Castalia Basin with Koi, because who doesn’t need some cute fish in their life??

Review - Pocket Gardens - Castalia Basin with Koi, small

Review - Pocket Gardens - Castalia Basin with Koi, large

Review - Pocket Gardens - Castalia Basin with Koi, both

The basins go really well with the Castalia prefab gardens. Both basins come with color change scripts for the basin itself, and for the roses attached. The fish are so cute and swim in circles. There are even sits on each basin [as shown in the top picture] and one of the best parts? Low prim! The small basin is 7 prims and the large is 10 prims. These are GREAT if you’re in one of the new Linden homes!

These are very affordable, too! The small basin is $125L and the large is $175L. Or get a little discount and get both for $250L! They are copyable, so you can put fish out everywhere!

Go pick up your new koi at Pocket Gardens today!

Winter in my pocket!

Do you remember a few months ago, I blogged about the Pocket Gardens by Stormy Aluveaux and Carter Denja? Well, just in time for winter, they’ve come out with new wintery Persephone Pocket Gardens!!



These are just so cute! The pictures truly don’t do them justice. The gardens are all linked together, so even for the worst landscaper on the grid [*cough* like me.], it’s super easy to put together a fabulous area. The base is texture change to fit a variety of snow textures that you find in SL, but I didn’t see an invisible texture like in the Thalia garden. You are also able to change the texture of the tree! If you get one with a lamp, the lamp changes colors and lights too, which is pretty much an awesome effect! I didn’t change it for this photo just so you can see what it looks like as-is. You are also able to sit on the rocks or log, and turn the little bird’s song on or off.

The gardens range in sizes from 4×4 to 4×6 and are very prim budget friendly from 16 to 21 prims. They are copy, but not modifiable. If you do much landscaping in SL, you know that it’s often expensive, so these are fairly budget friendly as well, ranging in price from $175L to $275L. If you fatpack the Persephone garden in December, it’s 50% off, making it just $350L. That is a STEAL, you guys!

Go check out the demo of the Pocket Garden. I love mine, and I know you guys will love them too!

What’s in your pocket?

You might have noticed in my last post, I was standing in the middle of some very pretty landscaping. I wish I could take credit for making it all work, but nope. What I was standing in is a Pocket Garden by Carter Denja and Stormy Aluveaux.

The Pocket Garden is absolutely amazing! Especially for someone like me who isn’t all that great at landscaping. Just rez out the size of your choice, and poof! Insta-garden! These are super awesome too because they’re scripted to change the color of the flowers [slightly. It won’t give you crazy colors.] and change the “ground” covering. You have options of having a soil ground, grass, and others. Even an invisible one so your own terrain can show.

They come in 3 different sizes, so there is a size for everyone. 🙂

5×5, 30 prims. $275L.

5×10, 44 prims. $375L.

10×10, 58 prims. $475L.

All of the sizes come with a bench with a couples pose, and the 5×10 and 10×10 come with a single ground sit. There is also an “environmental” background sound that changes with the time of day, a bird that chirps, and you can change the color of the lamp & light. It’s really just a great piece of work! If you regularly buy landscaping items in SL, you can also see what a great bargain you’re getting, especially if you purchase the fatpack of all 3 sizes for $800L. There are also bases and hedges included, which are not shown in these pictures.

The Pocket Gardens are not modifiable or transferable, but you can copy them. I would love to have a mod/copy version option in the future, just to be able to move a few things around, but honestly, these are just perfect as-is.

Go get your own Pocket Garden now! 🙂
