Can't think of what to say that doesn't sound like my standard broken record of "amazing! gorgeous! perfection!" - and truly, all of that does apply here. However, instead, I will simply say this: Apple Fall does "weathered" really really really well. ♥

I feel like The Arcade brings out some of the best mesh food. The Arcade also brings out Julliette Westerburg of Tres Blah, and she makes some of the most delicious food I've ever seen. A = B = C, therefore A = C and now I really want some sliders. Math makes me hungry.

I haven't been able to blog for blog's sake in quite a long while. Just to keep up with the shop and the events, I've had to put good old fashioned blogging on the back burner. I expect it will be that way going forward for an indefinite amount of time (which I've let my contributing designers know), BUT at this very moment and hopefully for a few weeks, I've got some time. While I can, I want to make pretty pics and show them to you, so I'mma give that a shot.

The Arcade is open for the December round, and ohmygoodness, the decor. ♥ So much gorgeousness. I can't really highlight one specific designer's set in this post -- the scene is made up of a lot of pieces from different sets, and I love how so much of it works together so well. It's another amazing round that must be seen!

The December round of Collabor88 is open! This month's theme is Snow Day, and what better way to enjoy the snow than viewing it from a warm and cozy window seat? There are 2 versions available, light and dark, and the set includes all the accessories, as well as 4 color versions of the side table. You can also pick up just the tables, or just the accessories. The window seat is equipped with a few cuddly couple animations, too...you know, for warmth. ;)

***UPDATE*** Tag! Haunted Studio has opened early and is open now!! Get going!

Hi! Second Spaces is excited to be part of the TAG! Gacha Haunted Studio event starting at 11:30PM SLT tonight and running through Oct 31. It's a HUD-driven gacha experience with 50 participating shops -- please check their blog for more info about the event, a link to the starting location, and how to play: http://taggacha.com/how-to-play/

My gacha set is the Monster's Study -- even monsters need a place to get away and study their craft. The set is made up of:


- barred door: to discourage folks from coming in...OR GETTING OUT
- apothecary chest: a quaint repurposed piece with lots of little drawers and cubbies for storing the things most important to you...like murder weapons. And your diary. Etc.
- self-help bookshelf: another adorable repurposed piece (for the environment!) -- a rustic wood coffin that houses some of the best self-improvement reading available for the modern monster. For example: 'Peace, Harmony, & BRAAIIINNNS: One Zombie's Struggle in an Undead World', and 'Vampires Who Suck Too Much: Learn to give back. Get invited over the threshold'. Riveting.
- recreational reading: when you just want to curl up with a good book for a bit of fun. A pleasant little stack of titles such as 'Appetites for Flesh', a collection of 50 classic recipes for your next zombie dinner, and 'Monster Fashion of the 20th Century', with an exclusive new chapter on knife gloves.
- family cameos: heirloom pieces to remember your grandparents by.
- potion ingredients: the best potions are made from the best ingredients. Here's your starter collection for whipping up a brew! Includes such rare items as wolfsbane, snake venom, tainted love, and Knock-Em Out (when you don't have time for the cat & mouse game).
- MYSTERY PRIZE: there's a final mystery item, which is my rare gacha item, that I can't share with you because of event rules. But believe me, IT'S AWESOME. For gacha players, you need to win the Mystery Coupon from my machine, and once you've completed the gacha HUD tour, you can redeem that coupon for my mystery item in the redemption room.

Mystery! Intrigue! Gacha!!!

The Haunted Studio officially kicks off tonight at 11:30 PM SLT. Grab your HUD at Gachatopia to get started! [SLurl]

Have fun!!


Fifty Linden Friday! BAM.

New set at Second Spaces for FLF - the Emily Desk! It's like a built-in without all the pesky construction. The set includes everything you see in the pic, is only 3 prim LI, and just 50L for today only!!

The October round of Collabor88 has opened today! I'm so happy to announce that Second Spaces has been invited as a permanent designer for Collabor88, and this is my first month being all official!

My set for this round is the Check Out at 11 set -- a shabby old hotel reception set, forgotten by time...and probably by the Better Business Bureau.

Only 88L for the individual pieces, or 188L for the whole set!

Second Spaces at Collabor88 [SLurl]



The October round of The Men's Dept has begun! Second Spaces is participating this month with the Moby Storage Table set -- a rough and weathered industrial table, perfect for your entryway or your office! The set includes the framed prints and the book decor, and for the duration of TMD, the whole set is only $150L!

I'd nap there.

Get out there and shop those events, my friends. I  believe I have indeed run out of new adjectives to use to describe all the amazing (adjective!) home and decor items that my awesome (adjective!) fellow designers are putting out every month. It's insane (adjective!).
