Periwinkle
A bit late with periwinkle in the 52 weeks of colour challenge – the fan on my laptop died last week and I haven’t been able to get to a computer that had good graphics for SL til now ;-((
The only good thing is that I was able to use these 60Linden Saturday slippers. The crown and slippers are in honour of the royal wedding yesterday 😉

Aubergene/ eggplant
This week’s 52 weeks of colour colour is “eggplant”, or aubergine as we call it over here in the UK. I think I might be a bit brownish for aubergene (more like maroon), but to make up, I am tending some 40 Linden copiable aubergene plants.
In fact I found I ended up in West Ham colours of maroon and sky blue (I’m not a football fan myself, but that was the team my father supported).

On the phone
Two pretty new items (the Tiffany top and special colour Aragon skirt) gave me an excuse to haul out the old favourite shoes, top and hair. The black opals went beautifully with the top, but I’ve a feeling they were an Earthstones special and might not be around now.
I didn’t go to much of the pose fair, but I couldn’t resist this phone box – mind you, from what I remember the box would be a lot grubbier and smellier than this one looks (not so many of this old type of phone box around now).

Asparagus
Two suggestive fruit & veg in a row in the 52 weeks of colour challenge! Last week the banana, and this week asparagus. I couldn’t resist buying some full perms asparagus and some full perms poses and putting them together to form this asparagus chair with 2 poses (one in the mushroom and one in the tomato), though I decided to avoid actual suggestive poses… Also my building skills are not that great, and the poses are only priority 3 so I had to turn off my AO to pose. However, if anyone wants a copy of this amateur effort, there is one here for zero Linden (transfer only): http://slurl.com/secondlife/Juicy/178/111/24/. That is my shop on the remodelled Juicy, to be honest I have never made much/any money from my pictures, but Juicy is a cute place to be.
Sculpty veg design by Elizabeth Firehawk (nicely made, the asparagus looks pretty good even stretched to this giant size, I think, I got the set on SL marketplace), poses by Anja Edwardstone. Asparagus fern in pot by Herb Abrahams. Sadly, the male avi in the 2nd pic is one of my alts.

Bananarama
The vintage bananaphone is the star in this picture. My friend Nigl got it stuck about 3 years ago on top of the library and now it’s a sort of landmark. Also in the picture are 3 things from the Albero Kawaii hunt, the Mine Mini Tv (Tasty), a cute little panda (from NAMINOKE, this was the “box” for the actual gift!) and a raincloud decal from Cleo. I managed to find some strawberry banana daiquari icecream in my inventory too… yum. This is my banana mania entry in the 52 weeks of colour challenge 😉
