Home & Garden Expo is coming to a close

Today is the last day for the Home & Garden Expo so if you haven’t had the opportunity to visit any of the 9 sims, you better spend the day doing just that! 96 vendors over 9 sims, and a lot of items to see……one item, seen below, is the Dreaming Cottage and it comes exactly as you see it below. I have added nothing to this so that you can see what is included.

Yes, even the landscaping is included and it is all included in a dome shape with a foundation (similar to a snowglobe). Once you rez it you are good to go!

Two levels with a ladder to get you up and down, mirror, fireplace, wall art, books, etc …..all included.

Everything you need all right here in one awesome package! It’s available from Koko Ashworth Homestore and you can click here to visit their setup on the Home and Garden sim.

Loving Fall!!

Even though I know winter is coming, Autumn is such a burst of joy before the snow and ice set in. The crunching sound of the leaves, the wonderful colors that flood the trees and the ground and all the “warm” things we do.

My RL birthday is in July so this summer I had asked for a firepit to be built in my back yard because I just KNEW I would use it in the fall. Guess what?! I have…lol…a few times now and I even learned that I cannot handle sm’oreos lol they are wayyy too sweet.

Speaking of fall, Dreamland Designs have some amazing items for the fall season:

You will see both the Autumn Table Set and the Tree with falling acorns and leaves. Yes! Acorns and leaves really fall! In my photos you will see that the Autumn Table Set has several options to choose from.

The Tree has a lot of options for sitting as well, and in addition tot he acorns and leaves falling, it has piles of leaves and the baskets that come with it. Be sure you get yours soon from Dreamland Designs and enjoy a little taste of Autumn in your backyard 🙂

If you would like details on my outfit, skin and other items I am wearing, please visit my fashion blog, Expressions from the Soul

Please visit my FLICKR page for the photos in higher resolution.

Dream a little dream….

Ever have a dream that you want so badly yet the realist in you says it is out of your reach?

During my childhood, I was always taught that if you have a dream that nothing could keep you from that dream except yourself. However as I get older, I have to wonder if some dreams may be out of reach for whatever reason.

When you realize that your dream may not be reachable, how do you adjust? Do you instead take your dream and divide it into smaller steps, so that it becomes more attainable?

The fact is that you and only you are the only obstacle to your dream(s), it just depends on how you tackle that dream or goal. This entire revelation came to me while actually setting up for this blog post and concentrating on the DREAM sign inside the van created by Consignment.

This awesome set is available at Collabor88 and is available in parts. The entire set is three pieces: the van, the light trellis and the star campfire and is purchased separately for very reasonable prices! The van comes with single poses as well as couple poses (cuddle only) and the trellis allows you to rez ivy or turn it off. The lights on the trellis turn on and off as well. I had a lot of fun with this set and fell in love immediately! Go get yours!

Just Hanging Out…..

Perfect song to hang out with in the summer……

It might seem crazy what I’m about to say

Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break

I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space

With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, and don’t hold it back, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine, yeah,

No offense to you, don’t waste your time

Bring me down
Can’t nothing
Bring me down
My level’s too high
Bring me down
Can’t nothing
Bring me down
I said (let me tell you now)
Bring me down
Can’t nothing
Bring me down
My level’s too high
Bring me down
Can’t nothing
Bring me down

I said

Bring me down… 
can’t nothing…
Bring me down… 
my level’s too high…
Bring me down… 
can’t nothing…
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)

Welcome to My Home series….Day 1

Everyone always asks me about my home and how it is decorated, so I decided to do a complete series of nothing but my house. So, every day I will post a new room and its contents so you will see how I decorate my own house.

Today we start with the actual home and the front porch. I have to tell you I literally walked into this deal on this home! I couldn’t believe my luck! Marketplace showed me this house and I thought it would be a mistake on the pricing or a home built by a “newb”. However, I sent the creator an IM asking if there was a place where I could see this particular home.

Micky Doctorow is the creator and my IM was met with friendliness, promptness and general helpfulness. He immediately TP’d me to his space and rezzed the home out for me so I could walk through. Once I walked through I was sold, but I couldn’t believe the price (395 L)! Since the purchase of the Evening Shade Manor, Mr. Doctorow has created other homes and yes I own them all! lol.

The Evening Shade Manor comes not only with the house, but it comes with a garage (which has a loft apartment above), and a boathouse! The boathouse actually has a loft apartment above it as well. So, you have three living spaces for an extremely low price. Snatch this one up immediately as well as his other homes!

Welcome to My Home series….Day 3

Today I am in day 3 of my tour of My Home and I will cover the Kitchen/Dining area of the home “The Evening Shade Manor” from Modern Living created by Micky Doctorow.

Just a note here: I did make a change to my Kitchen in that I removed the fan/exhaust from above the stove to install a pan rack instead. Also, the one wall was tiled instead of the wallpaper that was there. Micky did assist me in the texture change and I am extremely happy that he is so helpful!

This house is so modifiable when it comes to paint/textures that you will be able to customize your home to your liking. Great price, great build, great creator!

Welcome to My Home series….Day 4

Today is Day 4 of the tour of my home and we are going to explore what I call the Florida room.  It is just off the living room and leads to the back porch. What I love about this room, as well as the entire house (The Evening Shade Manor by Modern Living), is the openness and all the windows to let in the light.

This house is just me and the creator, Micky Doctorow, has many versions of homes for you to choose from. The furniture in this room all comes in a set. Yes, I used an “out of the box” set to decorate this room, but it fits perfectly and I love this set!

All of the following is from Chez Moi:

Potted Bamboo Zen  (2)
Chair Leaf Lounge Zen  (2)
Rug Lounge Zen 
Candle in the Wood Zen 
Picture Frame 
My Things 
Table Lounge Zen 
Lounge Multiposes Lounge Zen 
Cabinet Lounge Zen 
Potted Plant Sunshine 
White Flower Zen 

Stay tuned for the upstairs!!!!
