Cleo Design - Mesh beach house Home & Garden Expo

If you’re over at the Expo, take a gander at Cleom’s new mesh beach house…sooper low prim…three floors , and some lovely little details that will knock your socks off. First floor is your living space, teleport up a level to the bedroom, door to a beautiful deck and stairs will take you to the galleried upper patio…thats how Id use it..its up too you though ! I’ve placed one of the new benches on the lower level…

…here it is a little closer up….I just adore the quality of the shrubs in these, realistic and so homey. The poses are brill, one of them animates you to spray the blossoms and even gives you a spray can to wear, perfect! Better dash only 48 hours left ! Thanks Cleom ❤

CIRCA - table & chairs set -  Eclectica Flora summer hat NEW! Eclectica Hollywood shoes  coldLogic louise dress - [ba] mesh prefab bungalow

Ohmaigosh, only a couple more days for The Home & Garden Expo ! I still have SO much to share with you , sooo in a brave all out attempt not to miss (too much anyway) I’m going to post a LOT …feel free to ignore my rambling and eyeball only ! Here I am sat on the patio of yet another home by the talented Mister Anubis, that I just couldn’t refuse to own. It’s a mesh bungalow style build, a really spacious layout with lots of rooms and features built right in. Its even got a fireplace on the patio ! Check it out, you can’t fail to notice the quality of the build. I’m having a coffee (as per usual) lounging on the [CIRCA] – “French Persuation”  table and chairs set, absolutely love the animations in the chairs and the wearable props are top notch! (thank you Cherelle xx) Ohhh just a teaser, I’m wearing the new “Flora” sun hat by Elcectica, isn’t it just gorgy?! As with Tiffy’s jewelry pieces, this has SO many options on colour for lots of parts, hair included, or without if you prefer . (Thanks Tiffy xx)

Another item from [CIRCA] is this Ocean Traveller Ladder set, beautifully textured pillows, set before a shelving unit crammed with nic naks and a pretty potted fern.

Inside, the Barnesworth Anubis bungalow is just as well-built as the outside, I’ve placed these stunning pieces by  Dekute Dekore, a new-to-me designer, but one I shall definitely go visit when the Expo is over to see more ! Incredible realism on both the couch and chair…and SO low prim, plus great poses, whats not to love.

Home & Garden Expo Cobblestone RFL items

Couldnt resist sharing these items from Cobblestone with you..so bright & breezy. The ladder inspired shelf is so right now and the framed prints would jolly up any home ! Both these pieces are RFL items I believe…so dig deep !

Robbed!

I was mooching around with my remaining 33Lds and then I remembered “Poor Cow” that’s not her real name but it’s what I call her because she is my Alt.  Long forgotten, rarely used and is only one notch above noobish in appearance.  But what she did have was LINDENS! not many but enough so I could indulge in the great Home and Expo hunt going on.   At the same time the lovely Pet(petunia908.pinklady) owner of Persnickity sent everyone in her group the note with all the LMs and hints for the hunt so I was ready willing and……..completely useless.  Not that I couldn’t find anything but in that I was so temped by what was there I went and spent all my money on stuff  WHAAA I’m  poor again.

ExpoThe books, tickets and wine glass was the first and only hunt item I picked up.  Your looking for a blue box and each one costs 10Lds and if this is an example of the quality items then your going to need a much bigger home to put it all in.

And then I saw these too items and being an avid (and pretty useless crafter) I had to grab them.

QuiltThe last quilt I made was several years ago and I still use it but thats the one and only. Doesn’t mean to say I’ve not constantly thought of doing another but until then check these out.  Look esp at the stool I am on, lovely details and of course the texturing in both items are top quality.  Sadly the 150Lds each was enough to drain me almost dry but not only are these stunning pieces they’re just 1PRIM!  If you have only enough for 1 item I would say you must get the stool as the poses in it are damned good which makes all the difference.

How freaky is that because I decided to brave the expo again and just randomly TP to one of the clues and it turned out to be non other than Persnickity (the lady who send the hint note out to her Group).  She has a cute, very reasonably priced, home set up and stuff with goodies.  Unbelievably I actually found the hunt item as well which is this…

DandeIt made me groan.  I’m in the UK and with the rain we have here a Dandelion is just about all that thrives here.  Maybe I should just dig a few up and pot them.

This is the official site for the hunt and you can get the full list there or if you want an inworld copy just drop me a note and I’m more than happy to send you one.

ShapeIf you look at past posts (Nah don’t bother) you will find that in all the time I’ve been blogging which has been a long time now the ONLY shape I have ever promoted is from Anna Shapes. The shape I had worn till I got sent my first Anna Shape was  the same I had gotten as almost a Noob but I had tweaked and nipped and tucked it into what I considered to be perfection.  Of course I have tried on many a free and even expensive shapes and basically hated them and then Analy Amat sent me a review copy and I’ve worn it 100% since then.

Now ignore the skin it’s the shape to be looking at.  Smallish boobies, small waist, slightly flared hips, long legs, perfectly proportioned.  So good that even though these are mod I’ve never had to change one even the slightest.  A perfect fit for Mesh Clothing (you need the S, XS, or sometimes M fit).

Face useExtreme close up.  Again shape of the features and not the skin texturing.  However you could recreate this look for only 160Lds!!!!! Because Anna’s maybe a high end shape/skin shop but fortunately for us poor people she regularly offers a shape at discounted events so this shape can be picked up from The Designer Circle and of course my skin is another 80Lds offer from Essenses but discounted at the Fusion discounted shop.

Make sure to check out her shop because loads of demos available but also for a few lindens she has some gifties out (o,1,5Lds).

You are all wonderful…truly

The Home & Graden Expo dont give up

I checked in on the official website for the Home & Garden and Breedables Expo and W – O – W !

I was truly astounded by the amount raised for RFL and the American Cancer Society to date. There is still plenty of time to get over there and enjoy eleven sims of gorgeousness. It’s not only furniture, or plants…its SO much more, theres entertainment, talks, a stunning memorial garden. Iam always drawn to the sim that represents the American Cancer Society. It’s a beautiful & peaceful place and that’s where I took the photo above. It’s a hopeful photo (at least I feel so!), we mustn’t give up or lose hope, one day…one day…cancer will become something we “used” to know of…I believe that in my heart. Take a journey over, drop a few pennies in a donation box if you are able, or shop a little (more!)

much love…

Chapel of Style

Scarlet Creative - mesh Chapel

Not often you hear the words “chapel” & “style” used together is it? I’m going to though !  Charlotte @ Scarlet Creative very kindly let me play with her new meshy chapel that’s currently on show at The Home & Garden Expo… its in fact a happy coincidence that I have recently viewed two churches nearby to me in real life, they are up for auction and I’ve alwaysss yearned to live in one ! Charlotte’s version here in Second Life helped me see what might be possible in a conversion of a chapel…if only I had enough cash. Outside it’s still recognisable as a church…and why ever change that, I certainly wouldn’t.

Scarlet Creative - my Chapel - mesh NEW! -  [bauwerk] Felt bench NEW!

Inside however, it’s totally mind blowing ! The traditional shaped arched windows, lend themselves to blend in with modern decor. Its odd, but modern pieces just seamlessly fit in this space. [bauwerk] have a new range out at the Expo, I placed one of the felt benches infront of the windows and it looked like it had been made for that spot.

scarlet creative  [bauwerk] Hanging Bench Nature

Inside, the chapel has been shaped to accommodate living areas. There is a pool, complete with single and couple poses and further spaces that would be brill for a dining area or lounge . I placed one of the  [bauwerk] hanging benches in this passageway between the door and pool…love the effect…

Scarlet Creative - bed NEW!

Scarlet Creative also have two beds out as RFL items, cuddle and relax menu, single pringles and couples catered for ! Only 16 prims, a beautiful piece well made. It fits in the chapel perfectly…walk up the stairs to the galleried area…glass waist height walls make it light and airy.
