Yes, that monster RL prevented me from inviting everyone to our house for a peek around! Luckily, I still squeezed in some time to decorate a few homes of my own in between working on the next issue of Royal Living Magazine and a few of our hunts! This is how we went from Winter to Summer Fun in just two main ground homes! By we I mean my SLhusband Ice and I – he is the landscaper – I just rez trees they never seem to look natural so he fixes everything! All photos below are unedited raw shots they only adjustments I made were windlight settings.

Strap on your boots and coat – we wanted a magical Christmas/Winter Home!

Our favorite part of our personal Winter Wonderland was the yard! We even celebrated New Year’s Eve on our frozen lake!

Snow Fight Ice and GracieWe really had a blast in our winter paradise for a few months which is a long time for us! I think because he liked tossing frozen balls of snow and ice at meh D:!!!

Eventually, the snow got old :( as all things tend to do in SL lol so it was time to think and think and think about what to do next!!

Thinking Twins Hrmsssssss…….we thought why not torture our neighbors/sisters and toss out an old castle >:D

bwahaBased on the pic above of our castle which my sister, Tara Voskhod, snapped the torture worked >:D!! Then it was time to get serious…….which is when inspiration struck!

Summer Escape Blog 1We always have additional homes in the sky so our Winter Wonderland turned into a Tropical Deserted Island!!!!! The only problem is that I have always lived on an island in Second Life, and I felt like it was always the same boring look. Well…. needless to say with mesh everything is better plus Ice went crazy!!

Summer Escape Blog 7

We ran over to a good friend’s place, Tiki Tattoo, and whoa has Hatz been busy! I fell in love with these linked huts with bridges and our island began ;)

Some of my animals even got to come out and play at the new island!
AAA Sculpty Creations – Painted Indian Elephant, Giraffes & Baby Alligators

The island is shaped like a U and it feels very isolated even though we have neighbors/sisters living all around us! This effect was created using lots of trees, rocks and these amazing waterfalls that have built-in animations!

I fell in love with this palm tree at Tiki Tattoo the base has huge letters carved from wood that says ALOHA!

Aloha in the Hawaiian language means affection, peace, compassion and mercy. It is more commonly used today as a greeting to say goodbye and hello!

The photo above was an extra special treat from the talented Kaelyn Alecto! Kae came over one night when we were nearly finished with this island escape and snapped a photo for us! She is an amazing photographer and it was a pleasure working with her, and if you have a chance check out her blog and other photographs http://www.sweetsexycrazy.com ! <3

Thank you for checking out our recent homes and taking a tour! This was how we changed the same parcel of land from a snowy wonderland to a deserted island! I hope your summer kicks off with a bang! I guess all that is left to say is ALOHA! <3

A Royal Affair to Remember, Gracie & Prim at The New Farm House

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It has been a while since I had a home I absolutely adore! Ice & I recently created a lovely little farm house to spend some time cuddling as the weather becomes cooler! I have to say I found my match in Ice he loves prims as much as I do and is an amazing landscaper/decorator.  The only issue is that now……I have to share the primmys! >:]

Please come on into our home!

Please note all the photos below have not been edited just cropped, windlight settings from in-world and on a few I did make them a bit lighter so the items could be seen better.

This is our front yard which as you can see has been terraformed to create little rolling hills and we covered the entire plot/ground with various sizes, domes, circles and squares of grass from Kidd Creations. It gave the property a sense of depth and comfy-ness (Yes I made this word up!) The sim is currently textured with Botanicals Medium Manicured Grass MediumTexture.

Items Featured: Tobias Novi Elies Trees ; LISP – Tree Seat Baa&Chirp

Of course we needed a barn! That is Ice’s man cave… it is actually 2 buildings which can be seen in the next 2 photos.  He now has a place to escape when I am rattling around being fussy :P

Items Featured: .: ROXY SHOP:. – Stable (Barn) ; *aG* Wind Mill ; Kidd Creations Grasses ; La’Licious Garden Gnomes & Potting Tray ; *fN* Sunflowers Mesh

It proved to be more difficult than we had anticipated finding a barn we loved.  The Roxy Stable had a lot of great details in it; the only issue we found is that it is no mod so Ice is a wee bit disappointed because he wanted to take the stables out and park his tractor in there. The tractor he is obsessed with…so instead it is parked in the grass! -_-

The ‘man cave’ featured above is his own area I haven’t touched it… too much!

Items Featured: POST: Normanna Hayshed ; Pilot Feeny Food Tray, Morello Work Out Bench & Haywood Pipe Lamp

The infamous tractor…parked in the yard! It has poses so someone can ride in the bucket and the arms extend up and down with a lot of other lovely details it is really well made!

Items featured: Tractor by Larissa Vacano ; Rochambeau – Sculpted Road ; The Domineaux Effect Cottage Dock ~ Weathered ; Kidd Creations Grasses ; LISP Tree Baa & Chirp Seat ; Post Normanna Shed ; {what next} Fall Garden Tree Lantern

These amazing stone walls line the perimeter of the house and are mod so the color was tinted in various sections to add a little bit more detail! While some might say I was just wasting prims *coughs* I think these few bits along the wall make the place seem more natural!

Items Featured: LAQ Décor – Wall ; Roxy Standing Faucet w/ Bucket ; La’Licious Strawberry Bucket ; Kari Cusak Skybox (The bags were the box for this skybox I love them!!) ; Roxy Stable in the background ; Rochambeau – Sculpted Road ; fucifino country side ladder

Our field of wheat and pumppppkinsss! There are a lot of pumpkins stretching along the wall they are my favorite!

Items Featured: New Trails – PumpkinsKidd Creations – Wheat GrassThisNThat -Scarecrow, Litte Boxes Fruit Crates, AAA Sculpty Creations – Grazing Sheep ; Artelleri Wheelbarrow, Rake & Leaves ; Estequal – Rocks

I was very lucky Ice did not find this home too girly! It was love at first sight on marketplace and I have been dying for a Victorian style home in SL but the choices are very limited.  Most of the Victorian homes in world still have alpha windows :S I did beg and plead with Maxwell Graf of Rustica to make one. =) Maybe he will! *HINT HINT*

As they say…magic happens here lol. Actually, some magic did happen here when we bought this cottage! The room used to end at the seam you can see in the floor about mid-way through the room and there was a railing so the rooms below could be seen.  This original construction of the cottage did not leave us enough space to have a small bath area.  Again my mister fix-it husband modified the house and doubled the size of our bedroom.  We have kept this room very simple.

Items Featured: Trompe Loeil – Morning Light Bathtub ; Cheeky Pea – Maude Bed & Stilte Massage Table ; Dutchie Male Dom Chair ; [EoD] End of Daze Designs – My Pillow ; LISP – Woodburning Stove, Enamel Deer Kettle & Hot Chocolate Mugs, Pilot – Adult Toy Box

A close up of the bathroom area which again was all kept very simple because of the close space.  The eaves of the roof make the room feel comfortable without having to stuff prims in every corner!

Items Featured: Trompe Loeil – Morning Light Bathtub, Basket of Towels & Hanging Rack of Towels, LISP – Shepherd Snuggle Blanket & Rug & Antler Lights 

Isla of Cheeky Pea generously made this mesh Maude Bed as part of one of the hunts we sponsored here at the magazine and I adore it! The huge fluffy pillows are cascading onto the ground!

Items Featured: Cheeky Pea – Maude Bed, Stilte Massage Table ; Pilot – Adult Toy Box :o ; LISP – Sheperd Rug & Mirrors

These are the two rooms below our extended bedroom that used to be visible from the second floor.  The ceiling is now covered with a piece of the bedroom floor instead of vaulted. It really looked cute either way! This is my favorite kitchen – ever.
