Hélène

Neva River has been one of the most popular places for bloggers to take pictures lately, and it is a truly lovely sim. It is open to the public for a short time so go have a look while you still can, today is the last day it will be open for public access. This area reminded me of one of the final scenes of Queen To Play, a beautiful film about growth, intimacy and breaking boundaries…all revolving around the game of chess. Yes, chess. Sandrine Bonnaire plays the hardworking maid Hélène on the breathtaking island of Corsica. No plot spoilers here, but see it if you can. It’s marvelous. Hélène will win you over in her ever-present red sweater, sensibly pulled-back hair and her makeup-less face.

Anchors Aweigh

This adorable mesh dress from Vero Modero had me running around trying to find a Navy shipyard so I could wave to a bunch of sailors. The best I could find though was a really big cruise ship. still, adorable, right?

Scripting Shenanigans

Maxi Gossamer has created a lovely design for the Chic2 event. The new Lost Eden Sun pendant is not only  beautiful—it also contains a cosmic mystery!

060612b

The pendant comes with a color change script, and herein lies the mystery. When I tried to change the color, nothing happened when I clicked on the pendant. Maxi worked through quite a bit of consternation trying to figure out what was going on. Well Maxi came back the next day and said, “stand with open sky behind you.”

???

Well okay.

So I did, and voila, color change success!

As Maxi said, it’s a Sun pendant, so sunlight must be necessary. Is this the first step in SL prim evolution? The first prim intelligence? Who knows? Make sure you visit the Chic2 event to pick up this baffling beauty!

Also new to love this week at Vero Modero is the Desire dress. This great dress, designed for Vero Modero by Cuba Avedon of Shey, has a HUD with 10 different dress textures or an option to color the dress any color you like. You can see which one I chose!

And to set it all off I hung around the interior of Winter DiPrima’s lovely Quaint Cottage. Now I am going to go play with my color change necklace some more!

Yard Work

I live in a very populated urban area so I don’t actually have a yard. It’s a dream of mine for someday, along with being able to look out my windows and not see a bar. For now I content myself with a potted blueberry bush on the stairs outside my door.

I indulge my need for isolated housing in SL. This cute mesh cottage from LAQ fit the bill perfectly, with it’s old world charm and lovely textures. It also comes with some potted flowers, which is really the only kind I know about.

I am wearing all kinds of mesh goodness today—my soft, comfortable pants are new from Zara Yip at Pirate Arts. Perfect for gardening and for relaxing with my big boy Con!

I also love the new Seraphina necklace from Maxi Gossamer. Particularly impressive are the small details on the pendant reminiscent of astrological signs or bodies. I’ll pay court to all of them if they will make my flowers grow!

Congrats to Rudh, who wins the new Hush Grace skin this week! If I didn’t already have this skin I would be very jealous of you Rudh!!!!

Last year at the Jewelry Fair Emily Kaestner at Croire put out these Triple Portrait Pendants. I have always loved them and I have worn the different ones I have often. I am wearing the Citrus Gold one today. So next week I will give away two fatpacks. Have a fabulous week, everyone!
