My Kitchen

My kitchen changes several times a year, but I am still committed to a prim build. I need to learn mesh..... sigh. I want my home to be mostly made by me, so this is it. The kitchen is mostly boxes; textures and configurations change. While not a fan, of "shabby chic", my beach home lends itself to some relaxed lightness, and thus some of these textures.



This is the latest texture for my cabinets, a nod to worn painted textures. I particularily love the granite.




I love to cook in RL, so having a kitchen in SL is essential.





making blender drinks....
preserving memories..............

LOTD 60L Summer Halter Dress

Here's a really nice summer dress from Look*Me in this week's 60L Weekends. None of the things I EVER blog about are given to me from designers. I love to shop and I love bargains. I mostly blog the fashion things I buy in order to have a catalogue of the stuff I like. I am thinking I need to do this more as my inventory continues to hover over 80K, despite purging periodically. Yes, I use folders and boxes, and descriptive labels with dates, but a picture is worth thousands of words.




This is my den/computer corner of my house:) My desk surrounds me with some of my most treasured photos and memorabilia. My cats perch here, as well. I love all that I created in my house and on my sim; glass stairs, lots of modern windows, views and sight-lines carefully planned and color! The house has been continuously evolving over the past 7 years. Like my RL home, I want clean modern lines, but with a homyness quality that does not require "shabby chic" textures and items. This is my island home in the sun:)










This is the "Gary Dress" from Look*Me , and here's a few of the textures from the HUD. I paired it with one of my favorite casual shoes, Lorna, from Baby Monkey, also with a HUD for a great color selection.

Bathroom Updates

I love color! As I gradually trade out some of my prim builds for mesh, here's some of the newness in my bathroom.





My inspiration has been this Gauguin. 

Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?



The perfect piece to contemplate from a good soaking in a tub.








Saving images for my memories:)) No links, most of the stuff is made by me. I need to learn mesh....... bath tub and cushions for their animations done by others.

LOTD Secret 60L Find

I thought this was rather interesting AND pretty. This is 2 mesh layers. The crochet or fishnet part is worn over the heart key-hole neckline dress. The effect is rather nice and a bit unusual, gives the dress some almost touchable texture. Dress is 60L, titled, "She's a Catch" by Sej at the Broken Glass Boutique.








I tried some twisting poses, and really no noticable poking through of the lower layer.





Nice effect:), but doesn't capture well in my photos.

LOTD Saturday Bargain Shopping

I went to The Wash Cart Sale this morning, there's always good bargains there.

I love mesh products that include color change HUDS. These shoes from *PD* Precious Designs are great and I'm in a mood to get out of boots and enjoy the warmer weather. HUD has 6 subtle colors.


I always look forward to 60 Linden Weekends. This double tank top in "Sea" green has a HUD to change the under layer shirt for 25 different colors/textures. It's from Wicked.



Also, from the WASH is this inner tube with a menu for 18 male and 18 female poses. Made by X-clusive designs. This one is all rated "G":) At the Wash, it's only $10L. I think I'll go back and get another for my pool.
