The following is a list of all entries from the ARIRA category.

Orange by any other name

I had this rather grand idea to do Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of colour challenge all with home deco pictures, if only because I felt that I was part of the way there if I used previous posts. I have electric lime, how hard can the rest be? 😉

That was before I hit a million snags connecting to SL – for the past 12 days, I have either been unable to log in, or disconnected two minutes in. Over and over and over again. I’m still trying to figure out what the problem is. I tried deinstalling all the viewers on my PC, then reinstalling, and it seemed like that did the trick, but it didn’t. I’m at the stage where I think I probably need a new ISP. So until I sort out the problem, the 52 weeks of colour will have to wait, and so will everything else I want to do in SL. I did join Plurk, though (if I had known I was going to be locked out of SL for so long, I might have waited a bit…but hey, it’s all good fun.) You’re all very welcome to add me, if you want to.

I swear I would do the credits for this picture if I could actually login (okay… so today is one of the “cannot login at all days”, rather than “get disconnected” days? Fine.)

By the way, that was week 28 (Neon Carrot). Yes, that late. Oh well, never mind. Moving on, maybe I can aggregate all of the past month picture into one post. That’d be a challenge in itself.


Room with a view

Well, I sold my land. And then I did something I’d always said I’d never do: I bought two 512 parcels. Monthly tier, here we come.

The old land was on water…or, rather more accurately, under water. I did have every intention to buy or build a little island, at some point, but I never got round to it. The new land is on…well, land. With views over water. It’s the view I fell in love with; yes, of course, I know it’s foolish, but I’ll enjoy it while it lasts, and then I’ll get the skyboxes out.

But for now, I searched my inventory for a build that would let me enjoy the scenery, and I remembered Bang Bang Lairs Artist Atelier; this was actually a freebie or a dollarbie at the time I picked it up, a while ago, and I just knew I’d find a spot for it eventually! It’s not a freebie anymore, but it’s available to view in world.

And then the room is a mix of new favourites and old favourites. I think I might even have a few prims left… Oh, what a strange feeling! 😉

The golden hour

I love love love autumn. OK, I know, me and a few millions other people. 🙂 So of course I did the Seasons hunt (Fall). OK, I know, me and several hundred people… 😉

Not that this is a pure Seasons Hunt post.

Special mention for the skybox – no, it’s not in the Seasons hunt, you get it when you place LITHIUM in your profile picks (details here), it’s absolutely gorgeous, and I thought it made a nice foil to all the orange tones of the other gifts. After all, who wants to look at a picture that’s the visual equivalent of pumpkin soup?
