Sunshine of my life, apple of my eye – because of my 15 years old son and his Confirmation Day Party I have been veeeery busy in RL. It is getting colder and darker day by day so it is great to escape – even 15 minutes – to my new beach house paradise. I recently found bunch of great new shops, but what you see in pics are mostly old stuff. My absolute favorite is Leinikki arm chair – it has beautiful texture and Leinikki means Buttercup flower in Finnish. I have no idea if the creator of this chair has some Finnish background or is the name just co-incidence.

Rose skybox is mi temporary casa

I am selling my land and while waiting, I live at the small but very cute (free group gift by Lo*Momo) rose skybox. It has beautiful rose garden outside the one big window. The chairs, olive and natural, are from Arcade Gatcha event – I have similar chair at my home. I bought it almost 25 years ago when I moved out from my parents house and the chair is like a new. It is also my children’s favorite chair. piece and lovemi casa rose skybox

Y’s House adaptation

I wrote yesterday that I have found my dream house (OMISE001 by Y’s house) …well, after spending few hours at my new home, I figured I need also a private room. Although I am a terrible builder, I really cannot do anything but windowless cubes, I quickly made a simple roof top room. The awning is borrowed from Y’s House folder and modified smaller, all textures are very old, mainly from GNU, ladder is borrowed from L2 studio’s west lake mini house folder. Decorating is not yet finished (it never is…) but mostly I used old *iconic* stuff.

And now, having my “secret” roof top room, I can go downstairs and finish my main room. It’s gonna be a wine-bar/dance party area for my neighbors and friends:)

LeLutka and LentoTähti

This morning there was a quite funny conversation with my Finnish SL-friend. I told I have been incorrectly called Minnu and that name lead us to LeLutka, very well know SL-fashion brand founded by Minnu Palen and one of my all-time-favorites.

And why it was so funny? Because lutka in Finnish means hooker… or it is not so bad as hooker, maybe more like a very generous and liberal woman. LeLutka sounds like classy french-styled hooker!

Sometimes I have thought maybe Minnu Palen is Finnish but I really have no idea. Probably not. There is also other Finnish brand names at SL, like small shop LentoTähti (I think it’s not operating anymore). Almost all Finnish based names have been made by japanese SL-designers. Santa Claus from Finland’s Lapland and The Moomins are popular in Japan and Finnish language may sound exotic and fun.

I tried to search old LentoTähti clothes but I think I have deleted them last spring when I did inventory cleaning. LeLutka skins, hairs and clothes I have many and as a bit hurry I choose first ones. Olja hair looks still fine but has to say that old skin looks…well, messy and old.

Love at first sight

JoHaDeZ. Poetic furniture. Totally new for me before visiting their Home & Garden Expo shop. They have everything  – decoration, plants, furniture, wall art – and everything is high quality mesh with great animations. I just love this shop – it is fresh and poetic indeed but not too sweet.
