The following is a list of all entries from the Vent du Sud category.

Urban Oasis

Oh dear. I’ve been sitting on this for ages, and it’s high time I posted it, because summer is nearly over, and this is a post for those long hot summer days, where all you wanna do in hang out in the shade, preferably by a pool. We’ve had about 5 of those days this summer, I think. Which isn’t actually bad at all for an English summer.

English summer

What can I say…I know there’s been a heatwave in Europe, but here in the UK (yeah, yeah, I know the UK is in Europe, geographically speaking – but it doesn’t always feel that way), apart from a few very muggy days, the weather has been quite changeable, with quite a bit of rain. Which suits me fine, I love rain. So when I discovered that the Scarlet Creative skybox had texture change windows, and one of the settings was “rainy”, I knew it was a keeper. Even if the rainy effect is much more obvious if you rez the skybox in a big white box, which is what I’ve done here.

Beach shack baby

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

Animal attraction

Well, spring seems to be finally there (these days, you can never be sure…), and I nearly feel like I should apologise for not putting together a blog post around the spring edition of the Season’s Hunt (which ends today – 30th April). Well, I did have a go at the hunt (the homewares part). Over two evenings, I did hunt for stuff. Some stuff I found, some stuff I didn’t find. In the process, I crashed 47 times, and at some point, I decided it wasn’t how I wanted to spend my free time right now.

But I’m grateful to all those who reported, no doubt in far better fashion than I could have done!

Can’t wait for the Autumn one, though.

I was actually gonna go all the way down the trashy route for this one, but do you know how hard it is to find trashy furniture/home accessories that are nicely done???? So it turned into…something else.

Work in progress

Renovating is tiring. So’s cooking. And I haven’t finished the living room.

Time for some downtime!
