It's my rez day!  
One year ago today I downloaded Secondlife and joined the grid. Had some computer issues at first but it got all sorted out. Yeah I can still use more memory and a yet another graphics card but its good enough.

My first days about the grid I was prancing about like this Yeah not much has changed other then my hair and clothing, Oh and I have a different tail. But yes same Luskwood Kitty avatar and same seven's Selection wings. Really why mess with what’s perfect? I owe Kain AKA maus_merryjest the thanks for my look. He bought me what you see there and edited the white kitty to cream. He's got GREAT taste in wings. Those are just perfect.

I've lived in a few places over the year, only moving once by choice. I like where I'm at now and hope to stay there a while. Made quite a few friends, found some fantastic places to explore and slowly learning to build.

I've loved every moment of it. Secondlife is such an amazing place. As I've talked about before

For my Rez day I will be working on my land, and going to a ball in New Babbage.

And my Teahouse in New Babbage is all done! Photos behind the cut

The main building. It's made of a LOT of mega prims. Otherwise it would be have way more prims in it. My own design and I'm quite proud of it. The teapot gives off steam from the spout!

I had so much help from folks about new Babbage finding the right textures for the build. Really some great people in that place. Which is why I wanted to build something to give back to them.

The glass texture was a PIA, I went with alpha textures at first but those of course have issues, so its just a normal texture made transparent. The curved corners where the hardest ones to make look right.

My Doors again. I do love them

Step Into my garden!

Close up of the teapot. It's copper and Glass. I need to adjust the steam to give off more but I can't get it to work right.

The view right in front of you as you enter

The view to the right

Close up of my teacup planter. Only place that has any columbine in it. I hope Julia of Creative Fantasy makes a 1 prim Columbine plant soon! Most of the plants you see here are from her 1 prim scuply plant grouping series. Which is why they sometimes look odd when you first enter before they are fully rezzed.

One of the tables of tea things. This one wont change what it holds. The pink teacup is my "tip jar". So far the generous folk of New Babbage have tipped me around 200L! And Sherlock told me he really enjoyed the place. Him and Watson spent quite some time in it this afternoon.

The bistro tables. At first I was annoyed that the tables where not copy. So I had to buy 5 sets. But I got five DIFFERENT sets and I LOVE the effect of the different textures now!

The other Tea table. The tea set on this one will change seasonally. Right now it has an Easter tea set on it. I'm not sure what the next holiday set will be themed around but it will change!

I remembered seeing this fountain on the Alice hunt and HAD to get it for the teahouse. It fits so perfectly

The big mushroom gives out none Tea drinks if you don’t want tea.

Long view from the front corner. Peeking through some roses.

overhead. Oh there is a daisy under the tree that has some sit poses in it.

Looking up at the underside of the dome.

The songbird bench and bird bath. The birdbath is from the set my current house came with. The bench has lil birds on it. I had an issue with it though. A notecard to the maker gave me a new one with the issue fixed!


I promised Dickens the cat I'd put a basket down for him. And some Catnip. Here's both!

Oh and if you walk outside and around back. I have a portal set up to Realm of the Fae Kitty. Clicking on it gets you a notecard with landmarks on it! I thought that clever myself.

I also spent some time working on my land, but two items I got had issues. one never got sent to me *stupid exstreet mess-up* and the other is missing items. I sent note cards to both makers. I JUST heard back from the never received one and now have it. But I'm tired and want sleep soon. I'll put it up before the ball.

I still need Babbage and Avaira and a Tea icons..must figure out good poses!
