The Piano Man


This beautiful piano is Alouette’s creation for Collabor88 August 2nd birthday round. Alouette products are so beautiful, fluid and detailed original mesh that adds such realism to your home it truly is a pleasure to have any of the items enhance your home.

The pianos come in three different wood colors and worn versions.  Staying in line with this razzle dazzle 1920s theme, the piano is actually a player piano (also known as pianola or autopiano), which is a self-playing piano, containing a pneumatic or electro-mechanical mechanism that operates the piano action via pre-programmed music perforated paper, or in rare instances, metallic rolls.  The Alouette version has a true rotating mechanism which was a wonderful addition to this already beautifully created instrument.  The seat is full of animations that are fluid and adjustable.  A must have for any musician and home!

With Love Hunt

Winter is full of fun and festive activities, and we are only 2 days into December!  Some of that holiday fun is brought to the grid by CHIC Management’s With Love Hunt.  This hunt is fabulous, and one I looked forward to each year long before I was a blogger.  The hunt items are always so lovely and at only 10L, for the exceptional quality, it’s more than worth it!

December brings about the need to feel cozy, comfy and warm.  Bundling up and spending time with your friends, family and loved ones by the fire, while the snow falls softly outside, blanketing the world in white.  Sadly we do not get snow in Hollywood, but like so many things that I am unable to experience in my real world, SecondLife makes it possible.

I’ve been rather sick, so forgive the delay in bringing this great hunt to my humble little blog.  As many of you know, Mrs. Raynier and I have been struggling moreso with our varying illnesses, and spending far too much time laid up sick in bed than either of us can stand.  That also cuts our time together down, which makes us grumpy and sad.  We try to stay connected as much as possible, through texts and little short calls.

This great pose and prop by Adorkable Poses made me think of our text messages to each other, little sweet silly things to make each other laugh, messages to say hey, I am thinking of you and love you.  That has been ongoing quit a bit for us this weekend since I came down with a horrible stomach flu and on top of it, I have the good old fashioned flu.  The combination has been brutal and I am likely rambling since I have a fever and feel like road kill, so forgive my chatty fingers.

So many items in the With Love Hunt are for home and hearth.  I absolutely love the chalkboard from Evolve, it truly had the perfect message for this whole hunt and my sappy heart.  The kitchen set from floorplan is simple yet so lively, with color change table and varying colored chairs, you can surely find a place for it.  The entertainment center is from Alouette and is so detailed, with that same cozy feel that really all the hunt items posses in my eyes.  The Manhattan table lamp is from Apple Fall which always produces amazing items, the shade alone is so detailed, you really get lost in the map pattern.

My ring is from Kunglers, it’s rather gorgeous with an earthy boho feel.  It comes with a matching necklace too!   A great his and hers winter set from SAKIDE is also available at the hunt.  I am wearing the SAKIDE First Frost Pull in grey and it just has the look and feel of a well made Aran knit sweater aka Irish knit sweater.  My comfy fun  reindeer slippers are from EPIC, I don’t think I will take them off anytime soon, just look at that face!

I topped my hunt look with an item from the Arcade, the coveted Miamai_TCS_Unicorn SUPERRARE Sparkles hat!  Because if anything can make me feel better, it has to be a unicorn hat!

Forgive my laziness but I’m going to leave out credits as I am wearing what I usually do, and have listed out the hunt items in my rambling.  All slurls to the hunt participants can be found here.

Have a great rest of your weekend and happy hunting!
