Hi, hello! Welcome to my away home! Its delicate, its feminine, its got plants, food, entertainment, and its all virtual yay! Say bye to pixel dust and allergies!

Yess, we’re on our way to the final countdown to the Arcade Gacha Event’s March round, the first of the year! Today’s scene of the day is brought to you by Tarte, Hive, The Loft, ARIA and so much more. Tarte will be releasing a collection especially created for those of us who would love a place of our own, away from what’s supposed to be our own home that is lol.

‘Her Retreat’ includes a really fun RARE build; the ‘She-Shed’. And it was really fun dreaming up of ways to fill it up because its a concept I’ve wanted for my RL for forever. This ‘Babe Cave’ (that was clever right!) is packed with prizes from several designers who will be featured in the March round of Arcade. The Shopping Guide is fully functional so do be sure to visit the link I’ve included below o ye fellow list maker.

I hope you had a relaxing weekend, and I pray the start of your week gives you glitter, butterflies, no back problems and lots and lots of coffee and scones ❤

(Forgive me for the lack of sensible writing, we are blaming it on good T.V. for once.)

Galleria Kakku artists at home and featured elsewhere

By – Kuiskaava Kettu. Visit Galleria Kakku artists at home and featured elsewhere for original post.

I recently blogged The MadPea International Food Fair for Feed a Smile, which is open from February 18th to 4th of March, and mentioned there were a few familiar names from Galleria Kakku among those featured at the Art Exhibit curated by Kultivate Magazine.

There are some new pieces in their booths at Galleria Kakku, so I thought I would show you.

Isis Boa said her new works were inspired by a dream. I absolutely love the intensity of her works in her booth.

Kayly Iali is showcasing her drawings, which are amazing. She says in her description, that the technique was inspired by the Drawing Demonstration of Costa Vavagiakis on Youtube. She also appears in this book about 5-Minute Sketches. And for good reason.

Suzume Zuki makes colorful and beautiful art which seems to come from it’s own fantastic world.

Jolie has her own Art Dream gallery and is quickly becoming a name in the SL art world. I can see why.

Where’s Home for You in Second Life?

By – webspelunker – My Travels Across Second Life. Visit Where’s Home for You in Second Life? for original post.

Home’s where you go when you run out of homes.

John le Carré  

In Second Life (SL), I’m a wanderer and explorer. 

I had hang outs for the longest time in the beginning but never a home where I could hang my hat.

But, then I finally broke down, purchased a Premium Membership inworld, and ended up with a home in a place called Nowaki.    
All this got me thinking, how many of you out there have a home in SL?

In Real Life (RL), most of us are familiar with the concept of a home. 

Some of us have one, some of us want one, and some of us reject having one. 

Some get tossed out of one.  (Contrary to popular belief in some quarters, I’ve never been tossed out of one.  Further, I’m not some stray who followed Significant Other home.)

Is a home in SL really all that different from one in RL?

Why do we even have homes?

Isn’t it a place to be found, to be part of a community, to decorate? 

(I love decorating my home for the Holidays.)

At the risk of sounding sexist, we get fed by our mothers.  (Yeah, believe it or not, I did have one.  Although, she did ask that I not bring it up in public.)

Then there’s privacy.  (That’s my story inworld, I got tired of hiding in the bushes when I changed outfits.) 

What have I noticed about having a home inworld?

I’ve become attached to my home in Nowaki.

(To my three loyal readers, not to worry, I’m still going to wander and explore!)

Decorating for the Holidays is fun!

I enjoy entertaining friends.  (Significant Other arches an eyebrow.)

But, a few other points about having a home in SL. 

A SL home doesn’t have to be a building (which costs Lindens). 

A SL home could simply be your favorite sim where you hang out with friends or by yourself. 

Or, maybe someone shares their home with you?

What about you?

Do you have a home inworld?

Are you alone or do you share it with someone else?

Is there a small town somewhere inworld that you call home?
Why or why not?

Please drop me a line and let me know!

If I get enough responses, then I’ll write a follow-up.

Or, better yet!

Invite me over and show me around! 

As always, I’m grateful to all inworld for their kindness and time in stopping to talk with a stranger who was passing through their lives. 

My Twitter handle is @webspelunker.  Please feel free to follow me and I’d be happy to follow you.

I can be found on Google+ as webspelunker Ghostraven.

On Skype I’m webspelunker Ghostraven.

            Open roads and kind fires!

Finally the day has arrived that I am going to be going back to the UK to visit Mum and Dad, it seems like it has taken forever to get here but finally I’m going home for just over a week!! 
I’ve got lots to do, packing to finish, cleaning to do that kinda stuff but I’m going to take 10 minutes outta my time to drink a cup of coffee and get overly excited here! I’ve been a good little blogger and built up a backlog of posts that I can share while I’m away too – gives me something to do when the family are working and keeps my addiction fed – and now it’s just a matter of one final check in SL then I won’t be logging in for a week!! 
Rudh is leaving with me, she’d better hurry though because she has a train to catch… 

Rudh is rushing to get to the train before it departs without her.
Dressed in a cute outfit that seems perfect for being a tourist in London in the spring, wrapped in her APHORISM Jacket to keep warm, she grabbed her bag, phone and camera and I really hope she makes it to the train on time?! Hey, she’s a pretty Chic Traveller though right – thanks to Image Essentials anyway?! 
Still, I will be here blogging over the next week, sharing all the pretty pictures that I made in advance lol, but you wont see me in world until Friday 4th, at least I hope you won’t lol… 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika – Hunter in 02
Skin: Glam Affair – Seya in Europa 2 
Jacket: APHORISM – Winter Parka in Camo Green 
Top: Blueberry – Group Gift Tank Top (Past Group Gift)
