Little House on the Prairie

Little House 1

Hello Sunday! In todays post I will focus on enviroment and stuff that make our virtual lifes comfi and give us a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Home, sweet home. When I browsed some flickr streams I found an adorable little house as groupgift from a shop I have never heard about – which is not that hard since SL is so big. Sweet Harmony – or short [SH] – give away this way cute little home to their group members. And it is all kind of awesome. I will show you details shortly.

But talking about groupgifts: Behind me is the fabulous Teardrop Bed from Trompe Loeil. And – you guess it already – it is a gift to the subscriber group of Trompe Loeil. It has 4 animations (3 sleeping and one sitting) which are pretty much unisex. I already mentioned the little plants I got from the Lucky Board at Lithium. And again it is a good idea to join this group also, because Lithium has a second Lucky Board that changes every 5 minutes (instead of 30 minutes like the “regular” one).

The painting behind me is from the new Gallery Gift Shop. Again it is from Gabrielle Swindlehurst and it is called “Mountains Of The Moon”. There is one thing about living in second life that always puzzeled me: people seem to spend so much effort for finding the fitting furniture and skyboxes but seem to forget about art. And in my opinion some stunning piece of art makes some plain four walls something like a home. So having that in mind you simply have to go to the Gallery Gift Shop. First you find stunning artworks there and second the pieces are definitely not overpriced – and they also change with every rotation. Just like the other items you can find there.

One word about the outfit I am wearing today: The loose shirt is from NYU and it has absolutely convincing folds and looks just too real to me. The bermuda shorts are from the Mens Dept. – and guys HURRY UP! The August round is closing shortly. The shorts are from 22769 and I especially like the realism and the texturing of those.

But coming back to the house as promised above. You see the pop art painting in my back? Yes – this wall art is part of the whole house – and it gives the whole building such a nice and joyful contrast, especially with the red wall and the curtains which are also a part of the house. The texturing is more then reasonable and there are a billion reasons why you should get this group gift – for me it was definitely when I saw the pop art faces.

The lights above me are from CIRCA and are usually outdoor dandelion lights – but well… for me they work indoor also. The dandelion lights come in 4 sizes from S to XL and they are copy. Shown here is size M. And the chair is also from Trompe Loeil and is the gift in the Homestuff Hunt.

And some final words on the scenery: it is again from Garden Of Dreams. The dreamscene “The Field” is probably the most functionable skydome for people who are just looking for some place to live. Because it basically is – a field. You can do it like I did and put a house inside and you have the perfect enviroment that will definitely stun all your friends. And since the dreamscenes from Garden Of Dreams are also as permanent skyboxes in the package you simply have no reason to live in dull four walls with nothing outside.

Cheesecake

Weekend boys and girls – and even better: A new exhibition in the Gallery Gift Shop. And like always you find also this time some wonderful and quirky items there. The Gallery Gift Shop is now in its 12th round – that means: end of this new exhibition the art and sale fair is one year old! Not bad for secondlife where you can literally watch sales events come and go.

Today I am wearing the contribution from 22769 ~ casual couture for the GGS. Some mesh slim cut chefron jeans and a special edition of the mesh open shirt and tee combination. The matching glasses come from {Kiro} and are also a find at the GGS.

I am having a little pre-celebration for the 1 year anniversary of the Gallery Gift Shop with some home made cheesecake. The cheesecake comes from +9 who finally have an inworld store with neat little things. You definitely should check this store out if you need something like sushi plates, a watermelon bowl, cute sandals or hats – it is a bit of everything and very japanese (I guess) but adorable. And – the cheesecake i.e. is completely free.

The art in the background is one of my favorite pieces of Gabrielle Swindlehurst who is also a contributor at the Gallery Gift Shop. She provides astonishing art from exhibition to exhibition and it is also not that pricy. If you are looking for something decorative for your home – you MUST go to the Gallery Gift Shop because it is all there. Finally the furniture comes from Designer Prims. The carpet has 14 different textures on touch – you can change it whatever matches your room best. The sofas have splendid reasonable animations which made me giggle when I tested them – and you even can change the textures of the pillows and the sofas.

Dirty Ole Town

Dirty Ole Town

When it comes to clothing my credo is mixing and matching. I was never a big fan of one certain style – as you surely can tell. There are many clothing and accessories from the so called Fantasy, Vampire or Steampunk Genre that work pretty well with casual clothing – and the other way around. I started with the Risk Outfit from Phoenix Rising because I loved the vest and the rolled up sleeves shirt. Then I found the hat from Grim Bros in the Sanity Falls Hunt – and also the boots from Death Row Designs. And finally I sneaked in the current Running exhibition of The Gallery Gift Shop for the animated Time Leaper monocle from K_gs. All in all a steampunkish, adventurous kind of outfit.

I have to admit that I simply love the monocle. It is fully animated – the arms of the clock are rotating and it is just a nifty little accessory that gives you a little extra to your look. The name of the cowboy hat is “Make Me One With Everything Hat” and this describes it the best. Grim Bros went splendid with gaming cards, dollars, goggles, strange green glowing test tubes, scissors and many stuff more. And it is another hint that you honestly can expect high quality gifts from the fabulous Sanity Falls Hunt.

22769 exhibition suit at the gallery gift shop

I do not know if you know the Gallery Gift Shop in SL.  If not you have to check this place out. It is a sale like many others but also an art exhibition – and even better: you also can purchase art there for your homes and skyboxes and stores – you name it. Also: the place is wonderful crafted and just magic. So you have many reasons to drop by – but i can give you some more of course. Check out this suit – it is the new item from 22769 and it looks like a big raven made love to a tux. The feather collar is just like out of this world – and i love these blue embroidings in the suit (since i love the color blue anyways).

Talking about ravens: ~Tableau Vivant~ not only have the skin I blogged about yesterday as groupgift but also the crow stage with several crows which are just brilliant for fotos or decorations. They also work as an attachement as you can see on my shoulder. Oh and :Hebenon Vial: have – sadly – a closing sale right now. If you are into piercings or stretched ears this is your chance to get some for a steal. I picked the Pierced! Ears [Images of Evil Pack] for just 30 L$ and the color is way easy to adjust with the HUD. The necklace(s) are one of the current groupgift from GABRIEL. I guess they are supposed to become worn seperated – but I personally liked it more to wear both.

And finally the shoes which come – once again – from COCO. COCO has a sale going on but also an outlet store on the second floor – and guys: you just can not get decent formal black shoes for less linden.
