Guys and Gals Gifts


A new group gift from LAVAROCK CREATIONS is just out. Both guys and gals are covered and the CAMERON vest (slim so not for the busty or super hefty crowd) comes with a big hud that includes plain and plaid versions in various colors. The fit is happily designed to work over mesh jeans as well as applier versions.

The gals gift is in the section to the left, the guys to the right (two doorways).

Three Gifts


With three new presents in her inventory, Sami is definitely in style.


The !Rebel Hope group gift  Amy Mesh Dress comes with a hud to change both dress colors and trim. Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Venus, Isis, Freya and 5 standard sizes are all covered. There are 10 dress color options and four metal color options. 


Happily red is included in the hue palette so you can coordinate easily with the new G&D group gift Sabot Allegra Red&Yellow shoes. These fit Maitreya and Slink feet


And for Lelutka and Catwa mesh heads, there is a SLO&F gift of a head applier. Sami is wearing it with a default Maitreya skin. Appliers are available in the store should you need one.  Find it at mpc. Skin & Beauty.

Under the Stars

{what next} at The Arcade

Click for larger photo

From {what next} for The Arcade, a really really big set made for outdoor summer fun.   Be sure and check out The Arcade's  shopping guide to view the Under the Stars gacha key.



Food, drinks, a bar and seating options all combine easily. Take your chance or play a bunch of times and garner the NINE version Brighton Lawn Chair Pack as a REWARD.  Note that not all creators are offering this option :D.

Both bar and chair host some exceptionally nice animations for both gals and guys and many of the props give out items to your guests so you can hoist back a few on the warm summer night.


My personal favorite of the set is this tub of iced beer. It gives out both holding and drinking beers as well as sodas.

Natalia Treehouse


I don't know about you, but I love to play with color and texture.  The new Natalia Ringchair from Trompe Loeil let's me mix and match and coordinate some great patterns all with a few clicks. Much fun.  The ring chair comes with three versions of varying lengths of rope.


And then of course, there's the new Natalia treehouse which coordinates perfectly with its predecessor, the Yara.   Find the new versions at Uber, and the Yara at the Trompe Loeil shop.


You can pick up the Nardcotix Ibiza Dress at Lost and Found for a few more days, but get over there as the goodness goes poof at the first of the month. The dress  top has many color choices and there is a black skirt version also. Many mesh body fits are included.

New from ExXeSs, the Peche style hairdo comes in both static and "breeze" versions with of course two big color huds packed full of choices.

Bake Me a Cake


Another fun sneak peak at upcoming ARCADE offerings. This time from Second Spaces

Not a lot of us bake this way any longer. Stopping by the pastry section at the market is easier than digging out the bowls and pans and spoons and measuring cups. And, for many of us sugar is simply not on our healthy foods list.

Still, there is a nostalgia factor and memories can be powerful things. This set brought me back to a time many decades ago when my mother had taken a cake decorating class. We sat at our now very retro kitchen table, each working  on making a rose. They were pink of course. Sugar and butter artfully become a flower perched atop a wax papered cork that we twirled not so elegantly on it large galvanized nail.

You can bring bake the memories or make some new ones with this detailed set. It coordinates nicely with other Second Spaces kitchen props.


From Fame Femme at Lost and Found a big collection of shorts and tops. Beautiful and realistic texturing adds to the "real" factor and I am a big fan of corporeal reality wandering into our virtual lives.

Some cute sandals (again many colors) for Slink and Maitreya complete the outfit.

There is also a warm sweater with hands in pocket for those not quite warm enough mornings and evenings.

A quick post of two of my favorite booths at Lost and Found.

] MAQ [ CABINET - NATURAL PLAIN (comes in a grayscale version and there is a coordinating wardrobe.

] MAQ [ BOOK SET & RIBBON - NATURAL ( close up below - also comes in a white version)


And these are some of the pieces from the hard to find kitchen set by [ keke ]. There are a variety of bowls and cups also.

Gettin Girly FLF


It's a great Fifty Linden Friday -- especially if you are a girlie girl.  I don't qualify of course except on rare occasions ( I am wearing jeans, scruffy boots, messy hair and my owl backpack as I took these photos) but luckily Sami is more feminine than I.

From {what next} two sets of ladder frames with various decor prints. Empty ones for your own photos are in the mix.

From Pixicat Dusk.Top and Flirty skirt with color hud (beige or black flower prints).

Quiet Spaces

Quiet Spaces

From BAIASTICE for Uber, three classic pieces that offer a perfect combo.

The Aylen Dress is not too fancy and can move into the day-wear category with ease. The soft knit boasts zigzag stitching accents and a cute tassel accents the side that didn't make it into my shots due to purse hold animations :D.



The Fringe handbag comes in several color combos and there is a choice of scripted or non-scripted (with hold) versions.


A feminine flowered Lilium necklace can be added for an extra touch of girlishness.


As always a variety of colors can be found.

Kara Gazebo Set

Kara Gazebo Set

With a choice of one opening or two, adult and PG, the Kara Gazebo Set from Cheeky Pea may be a perfect addition to your outdoor space.  The sets come in either natural (shown) or light wood.  Two seating areas, a large table and plenty of decor items add up to value.

Click the lead photo for a better look at the details.  

Find all the goodness at Uber.


And if you have an empty corner that needs filling, these Antique Wannabe Jugs might be the answer. They can get quite large and still only one land impact for all three.  Check out the Reclaimed Set in person at the ChiC buildings booth at Lost and Found.





Coming and Going 2


Don't miss out on this stunning necklace from (Kunglers) at On9. The Cida necklace comes in three colors; gold, garnet and teal.   Be speedy as the event ends soon.


Form-fitting with oh so convincing wrinkles, the new Stories&Co. Signature Tank Dress comes with a choice of either bright (shown) or basic huds.  The detailing is fabulous and you can dress this dress (had to smile at that) up or down with ease. Basics = must haves in wardrobes.  Get over to N21 and start shopping!


Continuing on with the basics theme, these *PROMAGIC* Earth Heels come with a hud that's --- well, I better just show you.


Honestly, with all those choices you MUST be able to find a coordinating hue for most every outfit! Find the heels at Lost and Found.

Off the Grid

Off The Grid - Bedroom Office

If you haven't noticed, you can often click on the top photo for a larger view. Just a hint.

With land tripled in size and 1500 EXTRA prims in my balance sheet, I decided it would be good for my state of mind -- not to say FUN -- to have a home again.

While I love my real life spot on a one block street with super tidy neighbors -- in a small town and a quiet state -- I do miss the desert. The emptiness and endless skies are quite magical and the power of the earth is at your fingertips.

And so -- that was my theme.

I started with a 2014 sky surround from Trompe Loeil (Trompe Loeil - Sky Island Skysphere) which blocks out my mainland neighbors easily and mirrors the desert sky before a storm. There are few trees in the desert, so I removed them from the Trompe Loeil Yara Treehouse and built some giant rocks to perch the house upon.

This isn't really a fantasy build; there are places much like this -- Off the Grid.


I love the build. Two small rooms; lots of light. I added the {anc} NO LIMITS.old electric pole[natural]  that I picked up at a yard sale almost free (much dancing that night) and began my decorating.

My environment includes lots of items from  Trompe Loeil, Cheeky Pea and Sway's along with a few of my own things and some fun and quirky decor pieces from other designers.


A new item, currently hanging over the door in my office-bedroom is one of the [Liam] Feather decor items from Sway's gacha at Whimsical. I made my own peg for the hanging apparatus. There are three styles and several color palettes to try for.

And if you are wondering how those lights work out in the middle of nowhere --- well, I am working on an combo power generator; solar and wind *wink*.




Coming and Going 1

Lost and Found

With so many events even the most avid shoppers can have a time keeping up.  Some bloggers (and likely shoppers too) have lists of starting and ending times.  Others wait for those special days when the crowds have dissipated but the venue is still open. Some -- I hear -- even procrastinate until the items get to the main store (hmm).

Personally, I love shopping events. So much variety in one stop.

This month I was invited and joined in Lost and Found (just opened at nine this morning), a fun and short term flea market type event.  I had wandered the hilly paths before, enjoying glimpses of quirky items. That quirkiness is still in evidence but these days it is punctuated by a sprinkling of more mainstream items.

I hadn't really planned to do this post, but as I was setting up I noted that my both need a little punch. Everything looked good and shapes complimented each other but there was definitely something missing. Since Lost and Found posts no store signs (well infinitesimal small plaques on edge at the end of the booths) some striking signage seemed to be the answer.


I remembered that I had a giant signage set from Cheeky Pea at Love to Decorate (hurry as this round closes soon).  The build a frame kit is chocked full of parts and pieces as well as letters to spell out your messages should you so choose. I went for a long rusted sign and added a prim for a store name graphic. It definitely dressed up my booth.  So whether you like to show off your photos or classy up your store, zip over and take a peek.


My eye-catching necklace and oh so Boho-esce earrings are the exclusive release from EMO-tions for Lost and Found.

Let Me Have Lashes

FATE lashes 2.0

I love my Lelutka head but I have never been a fan of the lashes. I wore Amacci lashes for many many years and honestly giving them up for my new mesh head was kinda painful.

But happily Berry posted about the new FATE lashes 2.0 that solve that issue. With twelve reviews on the Marketplace (I was number 11 this morning) they have five stars.

Tons of choices, glow, alpha and color changes plus preset slots make these a great addition to your -- well wardrobe.

Click on the top photo and zoom in to see the details, OR -- here you go.


 This was my choice for an everyday casual look.


Hop Hop like a licketysplit bunny and get over to  Fashion Week Penumbra where you can find this great vintage hat called Lady of the Lake. Look for the Bliensen + MaiTai booth.  Short hair is built in. Color huds included.  You have until the 22nd.

Koba in San Clemente

Sways Liam Set

Bright and cheery retro aptly describes the new Koba releases from Sway's.

Before I get too far along with my narrative, you need to know that the sideboard and lamps are out for Fifty Linden Friday.  The chair (both PG and A versions with an extensive pattern change menu) and the magazine table (my personal fav) will be available at Lost and Found on the 22nd.

Back to the story.

My title, "Koba" -- the name of the new set out from Sway's, in "San Clemente" (part of the name of the new abode from Barnesworth Anubis for COLLABOR88) is perhaps a little less than accurate.

The FULL name of the house is "San Clemente Casita". In my book (and translated from Spanish) casita means tiny house.


BA san clemente casita

This home is definitely not LITTLE!  Then again, in San Clemente (a very upscale neighborhood) it might be considered as such *wink*. 

Windows, balconies, railings, opened beam ceilings -- it is filled with unusual spaces for your decorating pleasure.


Zip on over and wander through the demo. COLLABOR88 is often at its most pleasant towards the end of the month.

I bet you knew that!
