There is a place for the Sushi Chef to chop, dice, slice and cook.  Animations with props for prep and cooking with all of it done in sequences – great time to use your EXPERIENCES.

Aphrodite family camping_007

The summer of ’16 is coming to a close but there is always time for one last family trip of the summer, one final weekend at the lake.

Aphrodite Shop has released this “Family Fun” Complete Camping Set for the August round of the Tres Chic Event.  There are animations for a family (with 2 children) or a couple’s version.  The tent and log sit blanket have texture change options.  The soups bubbling over the fire and the drinks cooler are food and drink giver’s – so gather round the fire and have a hearty meal after a day filled with swimming and fishing.  The kids will have fun looking for the sleeping frog 😀

Some of the sits offer props that will disappear once you change positions and the set is EXPERIENCES enabled.

Byrd Island

Byrd Island_002

The moment you are standing alone on the dock, and look up, the mystery begins.

Byrd Island Lick Sims_007

Byrd Island is shrouded in mist and you hear nothing but the cry of gulls and a relentless, pounding surf.  At the top, the searching beam of the lighthouse strains to penetrate the thick fog and warn sailors off the rocks below.

Byrd Island Lick Sims_012

Sera Bellick – owner and mastermind  of Lick Sims – treats us to the mystery of “what has happened to the residents of Byrd Island? “

Byrd Island_005

Ride the lift (or climb the ladder) to the observation deck, then on to the top.  Homes are empty, a table is set for absent diners, toys left out by children who no longer play. 

Byrd Island Lick Sims_008

Flocks of birds endlessly circle overhead as you wander about.  A sad, lonely place with its own particular beauty.

More time at the beach

Aphrodite Vintage Beach Towel_10

It will be the first of October before it begins to cool off around here.  Not so great for the Autumn lover in me but it’s great for my beach bum side.

Aphrodite Shop has this great Vintage Beach Towel Set at the On9 event which is open until August 28.  The pink roses pattern on the towel and umbrella add quite a different tone to your sunbathing than the usual bright colors.  There is a matching pink bag stuffed with everything you need from an extra pair of shades to water.  Available in PG and Adult versions.

There is still plenty of time to get some beach time in . . . don’t forget the sunblock!

Trompe Loiel Caravan 1

In love with this Tiena Caravan from Trompe Loeil.

To me, the style is very Gypsy with the colorful hanging lanterns and string lights, small porch at the entrance and windows on each side.  Perfect for parking for a few days or weeks and enjoying the forest or beach then drive on when the spirit moves you.

I’m parked at The Sound (by special permission of the owners) who have graciously allowed me to do temporary setups for my blogs.  We rent there now and are so happy to be a part of the community.  There is usable water, golf, an airport, Viet Nam Memorial, KOA Campground, Georgia Beach and much more.  Vacation and permanent home rentals when available.

Asian Beach Shower and Lotus Chillout @ On9

Aphrodite On9 shower_015

Our routine after we spend a day at the beach is to get home, shower, rest a bit then meet our friends for a late dinner.  With this outdoor Asian Beach Shower from Aphrodite Shop the shower would take much longer than the nap.  There are single and couple animations and this Asian design blends into any beach or lakeside setting.

Aphrodite On9 shower_020

The Lotus Chillout is the perfect place for that late night dinner.  There are plenty of poses and props for all your friends to relax and have fun.  I can just smell salt air and feel the breeze off the water.  A fire pit and comfy couches make for a comfortable setting.

Get the Asian Beach Shower AND  The Lotus Chillout at this month’s  On9… the theme is Southeast Asia and the dates are July 9 through July 28.

Blooming Spring Wedding


Spring and summer seem to be the favored times for getting married.  Weather hopefully cooperating – outdoor weddings are the perfect way to share your love and commitment with family and friends.

Aphrodite Shop has released this Blooming Spring Wedding set complete with animated poses for 3 people (Bride and Groom, Minister) which carry you from the walk along a rose petal strewn path (the  walk is an included gift) to the exchange of rings – and more.  There are 17 animations at the altar to make your wedding perfect.

Aphrodite Spring Wedding_002

There is a lighting system built into the curtains which allows you to switch off/on all, or some of the lights.

There are plenty of chairs for your guests – 18 in all – with some fun animations for children who lose their interest in the ceremony before the initial walk down the aisle is done!

Aphrodite Spring Wedding_004

The climbing and potted roses at the altar and in the candelabra are beautiful. Creamy white roses have a center of deep blush pink with a touch of creamy yellow and are surrounded by delicate, lush greenery.

Happy Wedding

I posted this blog late last night and forgot to put the photos in.  Worked out fine because when I realized (today) what I had done  the words just didn’t convey the magi – really – only a visit to Lick Sim Desing’s newest offering will do it justice 😀

Here are a few pics to give you an idea of how magical this place truly is and what a unique imagination rolls around in the head of Sera Bellic.

Sleep and the rebellious mind…..

Heart Homes Hot SpringThermal Bath 3

Few things relax a restless body more than a hot soak in the tub and this Hot Springs Mineral Bath is ideal to calm your body and spirit for a restful nights sleep.  The Bath and Rustic Stone Bath Fireplace from <Heart Homes> is available at the current Tres Chic venue through May 10th.

Heart Homes Hot Spring Thermal Bath

You can choose between hot or cold thermal water and there are solo and couple poses – some offering props which can be added to your “experiences” option in Second Life.  (

I placed tealight and salt candles – also by <Heart Homes>– around the Bath and surrounded the entire area with Sunflower’s from Botanical, Hollyhocks and Forest Undergrowth from Heart Garden Centre.  and finished it off with a few sprigs of Draping Ivy from Dysfunctionality.
