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.

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.
I was little afraid me going to the Home & Garden Expo because I just recently bought a new house and did not want to buy new one again. On the other hand I have not so much money to spend right now. First I was totally lost and not so very excited when I arrived Expo Area 1 AND of course I crashed few times and was almost giving up BUT when I finally made my way to the Home Expo Area 2 I was in heaven. So much great stuff: houses, furniture, plants. I spend all the money I had – not much – but it is money well spent.
After a long time I finally put trees and rocks and plants and grass back to my grass bubble. I don’t have lots of prims so occasionally I have to delete something if I want more furniture etc. Now I wanted to see summery green also in SL (I love tree shadows on my house floor!) and made a path to the grass/flower/plant area. These flagstone pavers from [ba] are genious, just make copies and plan your path. My path is short – prim limit again! – and I also deleted one railing of the porch that I can go straight to the pavers.
Something weird is happening to me… I have recently bought pink, green and blue items. When I saw this blueish wall art piece I just had to have it. The painting and a flower vase including texture change menu (I have no idea why I have red flowers on this pic, they should be yellow) are both from wonderful shop called JoHaDeZ.
PS. My title is in swedish, meaning “summer is short”. It really is, so let’s enjoy it inworld and IRL outdoors:)
I have celebrated two birthdays during 5 days. I need a little break and another glass of bubbly.
My temporary home and all the stuff inside it (besides a kitchen cabinet, Zigana’s Scavenger hunt item) are from Designer Prims closing sale. Temporary house this is because I absolutely love SL houses – even more than clothes – and I can never have enough. I’m gonna be so broke after Home and Garden Expo 2013.
One of my favorite places to look new houses is L2 Studio. They have detailed and versatile buildings and I admire how they are showing their houses, for example this decorated kitchen area, next to TP area.
Monday closing sales are so exhausting and sad. Designer Prims has everything under 100 L$. I bought a house – pics later when I have modified it – and champagne on ice. I want to celebrate my RL birthday in SL too!
This modern and comfy sofa has tons of animations but I could not bought it for some reason.
