Home is….

… where the heart is! I’ve always found this to be true – and my heart in Second Life has always been at the waterfront. Since I can’t afford a sim, I decided to go for mainland, and I think I have found a beautiful place at an affordable price!

This is the view from my house, which is up the hill – you can see the cat’s house – yes, they do have their own house! 🙂 – the beach, and the water…. I could sit here the whole day and never tire of the view!

Here you see my house, and a bit of the garden… I’ll show you the pond and the flowers in another post.

I’m totally in love with my new Exile hair, and my mesh lashes – you can choose to wear upper and lower lashes independantly, and the upper lashes come in 2 parts per eye – perfect fitting lashes have never been easier to get! The garden seat on which I’m sitting is also new – it comes with bunches of single and friends sits – the perfect resting place for your garden!

And last but not least, meet Vinnie, my (and the cat’s) guardian girl! 😀 Now I’m going to laze a bit more in the sun…. see you soon!

Greetings from Italy

A sunday afternoon spent walking through an old city, taking the atmosphere in with every breath of the scented air… flowers, the sea, the smell of freshly baked bread and red vine – what can be better?

Walking around, discovering new sights at every corner….

Nothing can be better, really. Your heart and spirits will be uplifted, and you’ll dream this night of the sea, the breeze, and be happy…

On the prowl

The night is warm, the air in the club stale and full of the smell of dancing, sweaty people. She needs some fresh air and space.

Just a short smoke outside, where it’s cool. The night is almost over, the sun sleeping just behind the skyline.

Soon, she will go back in, for a few more drinks, and who knows what else might happen…..

The evocation of spring

Hello my friends!

I’m so fed up with winter, and cold, and gray… so the cats and I decided it’s time for spring, and spring we made!

There are pink lilies floating on the slow moving water of the pond – it is a little murky so the small fishes manage to escape the cats – and on hot afternoons, there is no better place to languish than under the tree, in the smooth shadows!

But as yet, it is not really hot – there’s still a slight chill to the air, so D’Artagnan and I prefer to lie on the bench in the sun. 🙂

It’s really warm in the conservatory now – you can almost see the plants grow and soak up the sun!

I’m placing beautiful flower arrangements all over the house to celebrate the sun and warmth!

Aren’t they beautiful? As beautiful as I think my new outfit is, too – I just love my new boots and my new red shirt, both made of mesh!

Also mesh: my new Magika hair and even my eyelashes – thanks to Shay for making me aware of them!

As it becomes evening, both the cats and I are comfortably drowsy for spending so much time in the sun…. so it’s a little TV watching for me and then off to bed! Good night! 🙂

It feels like home!

Hi,

it’s been quite a while since my last post – but I finally managed to furnish our new home! It’s comfy and not overloaded, as I like to think, and leaves spaces to breathe!

This is part of our living space – as you can see, the cats have occupied new cozy sleeping places immediately! 🙂 And of course, my sewing machine has found a place, too.

D’Artagnan loves music – and if it isn’t played, he loves to sleep on the piano!

The wash-basin and my wardrobe are “hidden” behind a curtain – although neither of those needs to be hidden at all!

My favourite lounging chair… as you can see, I like to play music, be it on the piano or on a turntable! And I sing, too!

On a sunday, I like to be clothed comfortable – flat shoes, a comfy beautiful sweater and pants – and I’m happy! And my make-up is light and fast done, too – it’s a lazy sunday, after all!

About decorating …. with cats

Okay, it’s been quite a few days since we moved into the new house… and apart from placing a big plant and a comfortable mat for the cats in the greenhouse and a mattress, some cushions and a duvet for me to sleep under, nothing much has happened yet…. why, you ask? Well, maybe you should ask the cats…

Every time I’m trying to think about what to put where, and should I place a rug here, or would it look nicer over there? the cats start meouwing, trying to catch my eye… and sooner or later.. they of course succeed.

They make a little room on their comfortable mat, and I sit down with them… (see how D’Artagnan looks at me?)…..

…. and just a few seconds later, he’s on my lap, demanding to be cuddled, and Abbi –  of course! wants to be cuddled too… and that’s that. You just can’t argue with a cat, and with two of them, it’s …..  impossible! 🙂

And so, we postpone decorating the house…. until tomorrow.

New beginnings

It is very early morning. Slowly she walks towards the house that will be her new home. It’s so cold that her breath makes little white puffs in front of her mouth, and everything is silent.

The house is completely empty. “Wonderful!” she says wryly to herself. The cat in her arms is still sleeping and seems content.

 

 

 

 

“This will be a lot of work!” But all the same, she likes this new house. The cat wakes up and stretches in her arms.

And while the cat looks around for mice to hunt, she wanders into the little conservatory, and her mood lifts. “I like this place.” she thinks. “It’s perfect for a new beginning!”
