The Nostalgic Sewing Room


Two lovely things I want to tell you about today.

The first is this beautiful & enchanting sewing room set from Pixel Mode. The set will be available at this upcoming September round of The Arcade. The items will include 14 common items and two rares (the sewing machine table and the sewing machine are the rares). Each play will be 50 lindens which is quite generous for the quality of each item available! My favorite part of the set is the cabinet with all the beautiful goodies inside.

The second item I want to tell you about is this stunning skybox from Haikei. You should check out their flickr to see how beautiful and detailed their work is. I am actually using one of their recent builds for the new home for The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse. Currently their items are small homes & skyboxes. I am really excited to see what they have in store in the near future. Beautiful work!

Making Sweet Music


So, a few weeks ago I snapped this photo, and then somehow accidentally saved it somewhere other than my desktop. I always save my work on my desktop so I remember to blog it. This photo just happened to get swept under a pile of other documents on my messy computer, and today I found it!  A lot of the items are from past rounds of events, so my assumption is they are all available in their mainstores now. I apologize for my badly behaving blogger ways.

I did want to make note of this amazing dress from A:S:S. Photos Nikolaidis is immensely talented, and he’s always so kind enough to send his items my way.  He has an endless amount of finger & toenail appliers that you should check out as well, and as you can see his clothing is also quite lovely. This dress comes in a handful of patterns, and is ridiculously sexy.

Lastly, I want to mention Elysion. Have you been? I took this photo there, as their gorgeous run down theatre. Syn Beresford is owner and creator of this establishment, and it’s rather incredible.  It is a member’s only, adult themed hang out, so keep that in mind if you plan to stop by and check it out. The entire sim is decorated down to the last detail, and it’s a place you certainly don’t want to miss out on.

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. I’ve been so busy in my real life, but I am certainly hoping to bring you many more blog posts this upcoming week.

The Bean Evolves


So, The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse has a brand new home.

Our last wonderful home on Sunshine Mist, was home for us for over two solid years and was some of the best memories of The Bean to date. After over two years on the sim, it was time for some changes.  I have, what I considered “downsized” our cafe a bit.  We have indeed moved to our very own sim, a homestead sim (which fills a capacity of 20 people at a time), and we plan to have more intimate gatherings and not as many large scale events.  Our focus will be quality conversation in small settings, and little events to spark your curiosity and fun.

Don’t worry, I do plan to still do some larger events in Second Life, including everyone’s favorite annual Prom, but we will not host those events directly at The Pixel Bean (and quite honestly I don’t think we have in a few years used the actual cafe location for our huge events like that).

I hope you stop by and check out The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse and enjoy the rest of the sim as well (which will be a work in progress).  As usual, thank you for your support with my “baby” here in Second Life.  We’ve been around since 2009, and we are still going as strong as ever.
