Fiesta Forever!

Fiesta Forever Beach HutHappy Saturday!  Completing the three beach hut stylings, my last Trompe Loeil Kiya summer shack is a tribute to the 80’s: bright colors, neon and party time.  Lionel Richie’s All Night Long was stuck in my head while decorating this awesome blend of everything fun and cool that represents summer cheer.

4th of July Party!

HOuse & bike

America’s big birthday is coming on Friday, July 4.  This day is very important to those of who celebrates freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  The 4th of July is noted for firework, back yard BBQs, and family vacations at the beach, but it is much more than that.  For my 4th of July tribute, I used the Dragon Magick Wares Take The A-Frame red, white & blue house with large deck an exclusive item from The Designer Warehouse Shopping Event to create the perfect party backdrop.  The Star Beaded Curtains hanging on the windows from Lunar Seasonal Designs are also exclusive at The Designer Warehouse, available until July 10, 2014.

The Mad Hattery Hat Display- bret

The Mad Hattery is downsizing their main store Mieville location and having a store wide clearance sale until Friday, July 5, 2013. All hats are reduced to 50%+ off and a gatcha machine has been added with new designs for 5L each. Saraid Dalglish has created some of the most whimsical hat designs in SL. The variety of hats, styles and themes are endless, and it is truly a shame to see Saraid have to downsize her store to only 75 hats. My friends, the hat lovers, Niki & Bret are helping me out today modeling some of the hats they purchased at the sale. Remember that after Friday the store will close and almost 60% of the inventory will be gone, so if you love hats, get over to The Mad Hattery and grab some at a great value.
