I Wish!

I’m off for one of my weekend breaks this weekend but unlike my normal cottage weekender’s this is a city break and as much as I’m looking forward to it I really REALLY want to go and look at this….

The Eiffle tower of course.  I’ve been lucky enough to visit Paris twice in my life once as a child and once as a teenager but as an adult it’s still on my wish list of places to go, however my OH has been twice, he goes on cycling holidays and there’s no way I’m putting my sorry ass through all of that work, and on his last visit he not only gave me the obligatory picture of himself and his bike, posing in front of one of the most famous towers in the World he also brought back a tacky and yet beautiful Eiffle tower ornament made of glass and filled with sweeties.  It’s now standing in my kitchen filled with Balsamic Vinegar.

OK enough waffling.  These ornaments come from Follow Us and because they’re another 48 hour discount on the Marketplace I thought I’d get them in quick.  For 99Lds you get the same base colour of silver and the 3 sizes and copyable which you can see I went overboard with in this picture.  The “love” comes with a choice of colours, red, pink or blue (my fav) but they’re in separate packs.  So if you want the blue writing (my fav) then buy the blue pack etc.

Best of all and I almost missed it, I even took a load of piccies before I realised that the V and E of the word have little lights on them and if you click on them they light up.  You have 2 colours white, shown, and random.  Once I’d clicked on them all my whole room was glowing.  I took the picture in my Nams setting but all those little lights brighten and warmed up the room.

I think theses look just as good as stand alone pieces or for something as dramatic such as my mantlepiece.  I’m very much into scene setting and if I had a SL lover then for a romantic evening I’d rezz a whole load of these and a table groaning with food and of course one of the wine ladened trolleys/carts which can also be picked up from the Follow Us Marketplace shop.

Don’t worry because I always finish off my Follow Us posts with a reminder that there are a total of 35 items priced between 1-10Ls and even more 11-100Lds and they’re all brilliant quality.  You can of course for just a token 40Lds join Laurent83Waco’s inworld group and grab everything that’s out for group members.

Dazed

Lap

How realistic is this laptop? So realistic I actually had to zoom in on it because just for a second I wondered if I could actually click those keys and see if something happened but of course nothing happened but it’s the most realistic laptop I’ve seen in SL.

Wine

This wine bench, the laptop, 2 world maps posters, photo frame and picture frame (one day I will actually get around to putting a photo in a photo frame!) are all group gifts. Costs you a 100Lds to join but I’m more than happy with what I’ve got for that.

This shop is called (EoD) End of Daze Design and it’s owned by Icewood Bayn.  He has created furniture which is slightly mannish, slightly retro, unfussy, uncluttered furniture with clean lines and  excellent textures.  Prims and prices aren’t that bad at all.

Special mention to a couple of things.  The most realistic pool table I’ve seen yet. So much detail so few prims and the accessories for it such as the cue holder are just classy.  Faith had to check it out and yes it has a small but good rudie menu.  What I spotted most was a lovely dark dressing table with rezzable accessories, a small menu of hair brushing etc but just lovely.  A set of modern minimalist wood Xmas tree so low primmed and with loads of colour choices so you could rezz a dozen and make a little forest of them and then last but not least a livingroom set which has some great retro seating with a modern touch.  This set  includes an indoor rope seat which even Faith thought was so different. This is very much  a mans shop stuffed with very unisexed furniture and I love them all.

And yes I did forget to take a picture of the Great Outdoor Hunt item.  That doesn’t mean it’s not good, a lovely low prim simple garden bench with a few poses and so worth the 45Lds.  I just got carried away with my shopping list for when I come back.
