Melting

Winter is in its prime in the northern hemisphere, and it will go on for several weeks before the first signs of spring start to show up. In SL, snow is already melting, though, so that’s why snowdrops are already blooming in my garden.

  • Ossanha Gardens – Snowdrops; Ox eye daisy delivery box (not exactly an item, but a delivery package, it looks nice, though)
  • Zyn Designs – Round Stone Owls
  • [Tia] – Spring garden planter (old hunt, may not be available anymore)
  • MeadowWorks – Moonflower vines (from H&G Expo 2013, should be available in store)
  • Sari-Sari – Soil (from Potting shelf & Ladder with frames set)
  • what next – Rustic signs – Welcome (past gacha item)

There are also some early spring flowers in the house. Maybe the greenhouse effect have them bloom sooner than expected, I don’t know.

Empty

It’s easier to organize your stuff when the item count is low, so now that my inventory went abruptly down three thousand objects, I’ve taken the time to do some house cleaning. I’ve also got some of the losses back as I explained before, and bought a few new things too. Among them were the following products.

Feteke 02

The first is not one, but actually two Alder tree packs from Organica Specialty Trees that I either missed when they were first released or they were never announced. Alder #3 is a single mesh tree that is 12 LI out of the box, but since it’s quite large, you’d probably downsize it (as I did of course) and save some “prims”. Alder #4, on the other hand, is a 5 LI alder grove that is perfect to fill up any woodsy area. It also makes nice bushes at a mere 1 LI. Both of them come in green (for spring and summer), autumn, and winter, or you could go with a scripted version (also included), so you just click the tree to change the seasons. It’s kind of tricky to distinguish one from the other in these pics, but the single alder is in the “foreground” (almost in the center) of the picture above, while the alder grove is to the right.

Feteke 05

The second addition to my inventory is the Beach House Seagull, from The Black Forest (TBF). I’ve been using TBF’s lily pads for years now, so this store may not be new to the readers. The structure is somewhat charming, and may be used for multiple purposes. Notice it doesn’t have doors or windows, so be careful where you place it: Bad neighbor? Get a dog. Lots of mosquitoes? Buy some insect repellent. To see it inworld, follow this slurl.

Other items

  • Garden of DreamsBellis & Aman flowers (both available in various colors).
  • The Domineaux Effect: Picket fence (I bought this during the Home & Garden Expo 2013, and haven’t seen it since then). p.s. A day after posting this, the fence is now available in the marketplace.
  • World of WoodGarden bench.
  • DECO: Aquarius fountain (in the shadows, near the bench).
  • Studio Skye: Rocky outcrops.
  • Botanical: Sacred Lotus & Cattails.

Feteke 04

Since I didn’t have enough furniture to decorate the house, I just placed a few tables and shelves to pretend there’s something in there, so passersby don’t think it’s an abandoned lot or “under construction”, that’s all. For instance, this table is ILO’s Farmhouse table, and the shelves are the empty version of Second Spaces Messy bookshelf.

Feteke 06

I’m also using ililo’s (a.k.a. ILO) flowey curtains, to protect the central room from prying eyes. This is the only area of the house I’m currently occupying.

Other items

  • cheeky pea: Mainstream couch (you can pick among three different color textures by clicking the couch), Deconstructed coffee tables (I got them from The Home Show) & Ansel wall art frames (with pictures by yours truly, nothing remarkable).
  • Y’s House: Round Chair 02.
  • ZiganaRobot rug.
  • 22769-bauwerk: Fabric lamp (ceiling mounted one; I think I also got it from The Home Show event).

Feteke 11

This green orchid is a dollarbie beauty from Terrashop. Get it from the World of Wood inworld store (see slurl above).

Feteke 12

Finally, this is the normal version of Second Spaces’ Messy bookshelf mentioned before.

The woodland

Spacious: The woodland

First it was the islet. Then, it was the swamp and the marsh. Today it is the woodland. I think it’s been quite a long time since I last built a plot as diverse as this one. It might have been two years ago or so because that was the last time I owned so much land. Back then it was 12k sq.m. in a full sim, which translates to a lot more in terms of land capacity: 2811 vs 957. Oh, the glory days! If interested, check posts Next to Nowhere, Backyard, One third, and AAPPAA Style,  from January to May 2011, depicting what was then a longish plot divided into three different sections. I really enjoyed it this time, especially when the three zones integrate more naturally as well.

As I said in the first installment, it took me almost two weeks to finish as a whole, but it was worth the effort, methinks. For this last section, I thought about a light coniferous forest, with a small stream running through the tall trees and a comfy little cabin somewhere along the riverbank. I already had all the required elements waiting in my inventory, so I only needed a chance like this to complete the project.

The woodand

I have had these coniferous beauties for some time now, and only a few of them has shown up in posts before. I also wanted to use Mudhoney’s ultra-low prim cottage (shown in the pictures below) since its release last November, but didn’t had the proper landscape to set it in. Now I think this woodland setting, the fourth and last area in the parcel, suits it pretty well.

{ Items } Nature: 3D Trees, Coniferous forest – spruce; Coniferous forest II; Fern dark; Rocks & Common heather (from Natural Rockery); Blackberry bramble; Forest fern spleenwort, plant, fern carpet & roots (from Forest accessories 2); Jungle fallen ivy & branch (from Jungle valley pack). Organica, River erosion, Rock walls & stepping stones. Happy Mood, Sweet garden grass. || Architecture: Mudhoney, Holiday cabin. || Furniture: Sway’s, Asian relaxation set.

As the red shed, the cabin is a one-room structure that may have welcomed some rustic furniture, being in the countryside as it is. But well, I don’t have those right now, so I’m using the following items in their stead.

{ Items } Nature: XED Ddesign, Rubber plant (sounds like Robert Plant, isn’t it?). Terrashop, Small white poinsettia. || Furniture: Cheeky Pea, OmNom chair, Georgie bed. PILOT, Larkin set – Display case. DIGS, Arthur pictures – scattered. ililo, Ind. lamp (in red). Zigana, Lazy Sunday chair (manly man & buttercup). lame, Sarah’s loveseat.

Once again, check previous posts (Nowhere and The wetlands) for store slurls that may not be included in this one. This is a series, so there must be something integrating all of them (winks). And that’s all, folks.
