The following is a list of all entries from the True Love Never Dies category.
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.
With the warmer weather making an appearance, I’d been on the look out for a nice shabby beach shack, so I was pretty happy when Cheeky Pea released the Coquina Beach Shack last Saturday. It’s not quite shabby enough (I mean that in a good way!), but it’s very lovely, and perfect as a summer hideaway. Room with a view and a pink flamingo.
And I finally managed to tame my inventory (well, the “Buildings” and “Homewares” part)…just in time for the Home & Garden expo…

Room with a view
I actually found this harder than expected to furnish. Its faded atmosphere (like a room that’s been left empty for too long and has been slowly beached out of life) is one of the things I like the most about it, but I had a hard time finding furniture to echo that feeling (even the vintage stuff in SL can often a bit too new looking).
So I settled for a big white fluffy bed and a chandelier. You can’t go wrong with a big white fluffy bed and a chandelier.

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?

A search on the creator name doesn’t shed any light, apart from the fact that she’s French speaking, and a Depeche Mode fan (obviously a woman of taste, then!). So, there you go… 😉
