It’s officially Spring! and in celebration I have been working on a large home and decor post for you all. There are quite a lot of images of this scene and because it was so intensive, what was meant to be a post yesterday, is now a post today. I would like to apologise for the delay but I think it is entirely worth it.
So without further ado, welcome to my backyard which is the scene of a Spring evenings’ party. Have you noticed it’s so much lighter in the evenings now? I know I have. I wanted to replicate this feel in second life.
Tattoo: Stardust – Youna – White Tattoo* (belleza,maitreya,classic,slink&omega)
Shoes: Pure Poison – Ivy Sandals @C88
In presenting this scene my avatar is dressed like a humanoid representation of a floral garden. I was influenced by Poison Ivy and helped along by some talented designers. My Hair is by Sintiklia and this amazing skirt is by Cynful and coming to Uber on March 25th. The lipstick is positively inspired and comes from Sintiklia. Not only does she make pretty hair she makes the cutest lipsticks. This is the first time I have bought one and I really love it, it’s beautifully formed. Best of all? it goes well with my outfit in this beautiful rich and sparkly shade of green.
Here is a shot of the whole Garden area. This build is by Trompe Loeil and as always I was so taken with it there was no way it wasn’t going to end up decorated. Absolutely no way. It is entirely beautiful I’m in love with my Second Life garden. I really love how Trompe inspires my love of decorating.
There’s space to sit at the bar and a plethora of drinks to choose from but mind the little chicks they are new and still full of wonder. They were a perfect feeling of Spring and entirely in theme because it will be Easter soon. The bears have taken a backseat for a while, perfectly content to let the chicks rule the roost…for now.
This hanging chair is by DaD and also currently at Collabor88, it comes with a set of poses that are really quite cute for lounging around in the garden. It is part of a set of which there is also a conservatory and vines also available for sale.
Have you seen my little friend? He stopped by to rest his legs. Isn’t he adorable. This little fellow is part of the carnivorous plants set by Schadenfreude. He was too cute not to take a picture of and he is very much part of an emerging spring.
This is the lemonade stand area, there are three barrels on the go with lots of lemonade to go around. Perhaps I am being a little too eager, perhaps Lemonade is suited more to Summer…but I don’t think you realise yet just how eagerly I have awaited the advent of Spring. We are breaking out the Lemonade!
I filled the other side with a seating area and furniture items from Apple fall. It went so well together I couldn’t help but pull them out and set them in the scenery too. This area is in front of the Lemonade area and is guarded by the toughest dog in all of Second Life. Approach at your peril.
Here is a close up of the food items out on display and of course they are from Dust bunny, I’m already hungry. How about you? I love this drop light lantern by Floorplan and I actually picked it up on one of my Fifty Linden travels. I’m glad it came in handy so quickly.
And now, while I finally sit back and rest from all the set up and the pictures, please do take the time to go through the rest of the credits. I will see you next time for another home and garden post very soon.
