Okinawa Islands and Solar Sky by The SL Spoon


A few months ago I got Photoshop, mainly for RL reasons, and of course I have been playing around with Second Life photos as well – after following Adobe Tutorials for many hours! I doubt I will ever be a great ‘photoshopper’ but I admit it is fun! I’ve also been exploring in SL a…

3 gorgeous places to get your autumn on!


Now summer is really over, my favourite season has arrived: Autumn! Being a September child, Autumn always brings back happy memories of  birthday parties, a new winter coat, hiking boots and comfort food such as pea-soup and stews!

Endless on a Sunday morning


The snow has melted, the sun is out and I just got home from a lovely, long, walk with my dogs, my idea of a  perfect start of a relaxed Sunday! The dogs have eaten and are taking their morning nap, so I went for some more walking; in Second Life! This walk is as…
