Sadness

Sadness 1

Yesterday I have had one of these moments – and before you run away: nope – this will not become an emo-post.

I have collected some furniture pieces I wanted to show you over the last couple of days when I heard the message that BAFFLE is having a closing sale. And actually that made me kind of sad since I loved the creations of Samantha Smadga a lot. And I really hope that she will come back soon again with maybe a complete new business. So if you like BAFFLE you better hop to the mainstore and grab as much things as you can get because everything is reduced to 55L$ and after November 15th it will be gone for good. So did I and I got myself the Le Petite Reve Skybox which is a wonderful representation of the astonishing crafting and texturing abilities of Samantha.

Trompe Loeil have just released the first Christmas items – and when I went to their store and saw the Star Light Pendant Lamps (come in 3 different sizes, copy, mod and turn on by mouseclick) I knew I had to get those. My mother has the same ones in RL and she always hangs them up around X-mas time. So it really is some kind of home feeling for me. The thing with furniture and decoration in second life is kind of interesting because the realism is nearly unbeatable anymore. And especially with these lamps I associate childhood feelings, home and parents. And yeah – I went a bit emo when I hung them up in my new appartment but honestly – this is a good thing. We are talking about a virtual world here in which you literally can do everything. And if there are some items that have that effect on you because you mishmash them with your real life experiences then it can not be a bad thing. So much for “second life is just a game”.

The Small Enamel Cabinet from %Percent is another one of these pieces because my granny used to have one of these and I have all good feeling about it because the cookie jar was standing just on top of it. The club chair is also from Trompe Loeil and I blogged this one before in my post Sleepless. The art is from the current Gallery Gift Shop and comes from Chiana Oh. And the Bonsai Tree with table is from ~Hanaya~. You can change the seasons of the bonsai tree by click and it is just a wonderful piece of decoration. A non changeable bonsai tree is also available as second year anniversary November groupgift at ~Hanaya~.

The Mens Dept is also a wonderful place to find furniture made with men in mind. The Angle Frames “It’s A Keeper” are the share of Cheeky Pea and the crate shelf comes from floorplan – both items are mesh and wonderful and unique pieces. The utility tables with the book and also the framed Winter Canvas are from {ililo} and also can be found in the current Mens Dept. The rug is again from BAFFLE.

I decorated the bedroom of the Le Petite Reve Skybox with another bargain furniture piece from the Mens Dept. The “sorting shelf” is from Vespertine and just matches perfectly the other furniture pieces you can find at the Mens Dept. Either the bleached wood is kind of a trend right now in the furniture scene within second life or the creators have coordinated themselfes. Nevertheless – you can get this pieces all on one location and if my pictures do not show you should believe me – they are wonderful.

The “Earnst TV” is from Cheeky Pea and you can change the texture of the screen and the set by mouseclick.

My todays look is again the Corduroy Skater Trousers from 22769 ~ casual couture that can also be found at the Mens Dept. Likewise my glasses from BALACLAVA – the Kip Glasses can be found in different colors at the Mens Dept. And each set includes different options. The shirt is a new release from {MoYaz}. The shirt comes in plain options and also in the 70’s collection – and I absolutely adore these. Shown above is the “Buttoned Shirt 70’s Beige”.

And last but not least: The Barrel Bed from Trompe Loeil which can be found at the current round of FaMESHed. It matches perfectly the previous releases from Trompe Loeil and is somewhat quirky with the barrel shape and texturing. The bed is available in many different styles – shown here is Brown and Freesia.

I do love hunts in SL. And to be honest – not neccessarily for the gifts but to find new shops and places I have never heard about. And of course: if the gifts I gain through the treasure hunt are good you definitely will not hear me complaining. The Swimming Pool Blues Hunt is a hunt that fulfills both expectations – to introduce me to new shops and places and also some neat gifts. The theme of this hunt is blue – swimmingpool blue to be precise. Every gift has to have all shades of blue you can find in a swimming pool. Very Edward Hopper. Oh and I should add that every gift is 5L$ what is not too much if you look at the quality of the creations.

But lets start with this neat little mansion from L&K Prefabs: it is extremely lovely made and the texturing is brilliant. Of course not everything in the “Ma Petite Mansion” is blue – you also find white walls in it and the lovely seagrass graphic. Anyways it is a wonderful little house that works quite good as a boat house or a beach shag. It is also mod – so you can alter it to your needs if you have a little building knowledge.

One thing you can get in this hunt is interior design and furniture – and the gifts are high quality and well thought and dedicated to the theme. The art above me is the gift from UrbanizeD. The art to my right is one of the gifts from BoatHouse. The second one is the plaid rug. The shop BoatHouse was completely new to me and I spent quite some time there. I can tell you – it is lovely. BoatHouse offers many furniture, houses and probs with neat little poses and well scripted. You can find rowboats there also like pontons and many things more – and what I have seen all wonderful made. BoatHouse definitely is one of my personal finds in the hunt.

But let’s continue with the prices: the chair I am sitting on is from [kusshon] – and like every furniture from [kusshon] this also is extremely well done. I had a giggle when I browsed through the  animations/poses menue because the animations have the names of movie stars (shown above is Clooney). The couch table is from Baffle and is called “Oceanic End Table”. It is another brilliant gift and shows probably best that the creators have well overthought the theme of the hunt and made something very unique out of it. There are starfish and sand inside and even water that moves. The texturing of the table is just so real that you want to grab in your screen. The gift comes with lamp and without lamp (which is a mastepiece of its own).

The sideboard is the gift from Senzafine and it matches just perfect the overall look and feel of all the hunt gifts you can find in this hunt. A wonderful piece of furniture that gives your virtual home an extra.

Finally the dozen long stemmed roses are not from the hunt, but a find at the Vintage Fair. This great piece of decor comes from Hanaya and is – again – a wonderful add to your decor that brings personality and a special touch in your home.

Following the theme of todays blog entry I rushed over to the Mens Dept. to get me the new Poetic Colors mesh eyes “nightfall (nightsky)”. Like always and like with every eyes PC are doing the texturing is from out of this world. I am so glad that Poetic Colors are back again and that they also work with mesh to even improve their flawless work they did before. And at the Mens Dept. I also got me the denim capri shorts from CheerNo and the blue tee from DROP.
