We’re not sure how it happened, but a jungle landed at The Breakers on SL!

DJ Merlin broke away from his jungle exploration to do what he does best…play some great tunes.

Neighbor’s Interior Design Defined Through Breaker’s House Tour

The moment we rent our little haven in the Breakers, we’re planning all the special things we would love around us. Here we are the interior stylists and have the opportunity to mix and match vintage with historical, minimualistic with retro and don’t get us started on landscapes.

House Tour_009

Suz’ comfortable La Galleria cottage is tucked away in a cozy corner of the Breakers. A handmade bench is on the dock to take advantage of the night breeze.

House Tour_012

Period cabinetry is matched with a custom made wood table and tapestry covered armchairs. The chandelier adds a graceful touch.

House Tour_013

Not use to this simple, yet playful setting. Templar is known to tuck away his treasures, whether they are the possessions of an explorer, a scientist, or a pirate.

Onward to the next house: a great study in architecture, from the front porch to the second floor bedrooms.

There are so many wonderful rooms in this home. Here we talk about the day’s events, Breaker’s parties or simply enjoy the sunset.

our house_001

The living room has two comfortable sitting areas: a couch, loveseat and oversized chair and two armchairs by the windows. LaGalleria furniture is realistic, color coordinated and you actually feel relaxed.

Here’s where we watch the sunsets. The back porch features a wall water fountain and looks out toward the lighthouse and waves striking the time worn break walls of stone.

The kitchen/dining room is in the center of the home. A great place to entertain or have a cup of tea or coffee.

Rocking chairs and lemonade on the front porch.

Art is the focal point here. A perfect setting for reflection. The earth tones are calming, from potted plants, area rugs and even the cushion of the chair.

House Tour_024

Shades of blues: the border of this wonderful area rug, the restless waves of the seascape and the sky are well coordinated.

House Tour_026

Egyptian Dance Bridges Past With Future


, , ,

ONE OF THE monthly ideas for a themed dance was ancient Egypt. This had to be Temp’s idea because he’s known for historical decor. So he reached into his inventory’s Early Civilization’s folder and dug out a tomb, funeral Gods, Egyptian royal possessions, archeology gear, and even a mummy or two. This is how it all turned out.

–Netera Landar

Egyptian dance_001

No mortal shall pass the tomb of the Egyptian kings. Anubis was a funerary god.

Smilemaker as Queen Nefertiti, the chief wife (queen) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep IV.

Egyptian dance_029

DJ Merlin’s ancient relative just happened to be wandering around Breaker’s venue and joined in the fun.

Think twice before going in there.

Once Upon A Time On The Breakers…


, ,

Fairy Tale Dance_011

Cinderella knew how it felt to dress like a princess and be driven to the castle in a beautiful carriage. The only problem is that the Godmother Credit Agency would charge her an additional “Dream Come True” fee if she didn’t return before midnight.

Fairy Tale Dance_003

Princess Smile figured out the best way to get to the ball would be to TP to the castle. Her night magic classes had come in handy on more than one occasion. A simple phrase of magic turned one man temporarily into a scarecrow to avoid his asking her to dance for the hundredth time.

Fairy Tale Dance_022

This princess moved from one popular fairy tale into our virtual world because the weather was nicer and you just can’t beat the gorgeous setting.

Fairy Tale Dance_008

It was our understanding that the Mad Hatter was impatient in retelling the stone rabbit how he got Red Queen’s banned books to be piled up and not fall.

Fairy Tale Dance_019

Tinkerbell was the belle of the ball. 

Fairy Tale Dance_004

Because the kingdom believed in an open invitation to people from other villages, Alex and I were welcomed.

Fairy Tale Dance_012

It was known to all from nearby villages to distant lands that magic is possible when people are believers. 

Fairy Tale Dance_014

The spell did not wear off past midnight. Poor Ruger continued to be a scarecrow throughout the wee hours of the night and was clearly heard singing “I wish I had a Heart.”

Fairy Tale Dance_005

Yes, it’s true, that we were all envious that she had perfect hair, a perfect tan, and the best dress maker in town.

Fairy Tale Dance_007

And we all lived happily ever after on The Breakers.

The Breaker’s Heritage Dance Helped Us To Remember Who We Really Are


, ,

Our heritage is an important part of who we are in real life. Through stories passed down by our family and our inherited traditions, we learn about living with customs, specific foods and the language of our ethnic roots. This forms the foundation of our lifestyle, along with our regional influences.

Our heritage was the theme of a July dance on The Breakers. We wore cultural costumes, carried flags, and as always enjoyed Merlin’s music.

Heritage Dance_006

Heritage Dance_026

Not sure of her heritage, but she has great tattoos.

Heritage Dance_031

Heritage Dance_012

We always enjoy Merlin’s selections because he brings us back to the days when the songs were popular.

Don’t Tell Mom but we had a PJ party on The Breakers and it was really fun!


, ,

Pajama Party_001

On a virtual world, a pajama party can actually be on held on an oversized bed. What a fun venue to create, rez, and enjoy. We could wear long johns, our hair in curlers, teddy bear nighties, all for fun. All in the name of friendship and a great way to reduce the stress of real life. Merlin played songs like Doris Day and Jack Marshall’s “Pillow Talk” and The Eagles “All Night Long.”

Pajama Party_018

Not sure how he did it, but NY Charlie’s long john’s changed patterns all night.

Pajama Party_003

Smile has her hair in curlers. She’s wearing her most comfortable pjs and brought along her teddy bear.

Taking A Walk Back in the Old West


, , ,

western night_032

Old Whisler on a good day. Best guard dog you ever did see.

THE DOG KNEW TROUBLE was comin. Dogs seem to sense things like that. Old Whisler was tellin us what was going to happen, but we weren’t paying attention. The town had been built in the west and all we wanted to do is celebrate: take out our fiddles, pour some whiskey, and enjoy the dance before our population reached the hundreds. We did it buildin’ by buildin’. Set down the laws, followed by the nation, and took it one day at a time. Little did we know the gamblers, steer rustlers, and other non-law abiding outsiders would hit the trail and call this land their own.

western night_002

Ranchers, Miss Isabel, saloon gals, and gamblers joined us for our celebration.

western night_005

Miss Rosebud wearing a pretty saloon gal get up.

We are not really sure who this man is, but he keeps on poppin’ up at our parties.

western night_021

The women in town would not approve of this top so I wore it.

western night_024

Blacksmith Merlin and his Miss Allie leading the town in some recreation.

western night_027

Maverick’s gun is hidden as well as a few Aces.

western night_029

He still thinks he has the Aces.

western night_030

You would think Merlin would high tail it out of town with this posted.

western night_033

We’re mighty proud of our town.

western night_034

We danced til sunset. Tomorrow will be another day.



Breakers Summer Blast: Filled With Balloons, Bikinis And One Big Whale


, ,

Spring Break May 31_002

Allie and DJ Merlin in their matching Beatles t-shirts and white shorts.

IT WAS MAY 31, but it felt like a sizzling Fourth of July for the Breaker’s Summer Blast. The beach became a welcome setting complete with balloons, bikinis and even a friendly whale, though we’re not sure who invited the whale. The weather was cooperative, the music featured every beach and summer tune DJ Merlin could think of. Then, to top it off, the fireworks blasted away in brilliant pastel colors.

Spring Break May 31_011

Putting On The Ritz At A Gorgeous Garden Gala At The Breakers


, ,

putting on the ritz_002

WE SET OUR lighting to midnight and watched the setting come to life. The colors were gorgeous shades of spring green and lilac and you could just smell the lavender as the wind caught its scent.

We entered through white metal gates that squeaked from rendezvous of yesteryear and watched as rose petals danced on the sparkling terrain. Chessboard pieces patiently waited to be pushed across crooked squares. Here trees still wore the cloaks of day unwilling to shiver in the darkness.

We danced in Victorian, Golden Age and contemporary formal. It was a night to remember for how often do you Put on the Ritz?

Temp wearing formal period garb. Love the top hat.

Allie and MERLIN playing the songs that we grew up listening to and sneaking the next chess move when no one was looking.
