Renaissance (inc. hunt gifts)

Percent build & FREE gift dress

Mieville Renaissance Faire has been in full swing for a week or so, I thought Id catch up with something that came through from %Percent. This sweet little house is all mesh and so beautifully made – it’s definitely worth taking a peek at. Just 30Li with poses built into the window seat and fireplace.

FREE mesh dress

My dress is a free gift from the fifth renaissance hunt that’s currently underway, its by new-to-me store Miss Darcy. Love the sleeve details and corset style top, such pretty colours too!

FREE gift chaise lounge - FREE music box

I also nabbed a few more hunt prizes , this chaise from Park Place, lot of poses and a stunning fabric all over – winner for me. The music box is also a gift, from Panda Panda store, ohmygosh it plays such a wonderful tune! (this prize was actually the whole reason I was looking at the hunt – I collect music boxes)

FREE 1 prim mesh table - candles multi textures $39L

Last up is this delightful 1 prim table from Little Scamp Designs, its super pretty and very well made. Beautiful wood textures used for the body and a coordinating one for the top. Dead handy for your home as an occasional table. The Autumnal candles were a real bargain from Lunar Seasonal Designs, low prim and you can recolour most of the components from the menu, just $39L for a whole set of various sizes ! Check out the Renaissance Faire blog for all landmarks and info below.

Country abode

Scarlet Creative Moon rise cottage NEW

So so so a new round of collabor88 is upon us, this months theme is muted coven (whatever that might be?!) Anyway, there’s some really nice stuffage to grab up if you’re in the mood. Scarlet Creative has this stupendous bui.ld out , and at just $188L its a steal . This is “moonrise cottage”, and I’m really chuffed to see the sort of interior layout that I so enjoy from Charlotte. Lots of different levels, rooms and a really cozy feel to the whole place. It would actually lend itself to many genres of decoration, a full size model is out on display for you to poke around in !

Renting a home in Second life – Its all Sunshineacid

Rental Home 250L per week Furnished (plus a few prims)

Its been a few weeks since my last exploration of the rental home market, and as I was feeling particularly lazy I looked for furnished accommodation. Look what I found ! Actually I found this same home in a different location but it had just been rented so I lucked out – or so I thought. Luckily for me the owner contacted me and offered to put up an identical home . I know what work that is, even for a small home – but it was done in an hour and I was ready to rock up and enjoy my new place. I cant believe this build by Trompe Loeil – “Shipping Crate Studio Wood” passed me by, it’s totally lovely and cozy. So, the deal is $350L per week, with 25 prims FULLY furnished. I was pleased with the level of decor, infact I went straight out and bought the sweet bed by tarte for myself after sampling its delights. The whole sim is gorgeously decorated, I didn’t feel out of place mooching about. Theres bridges to pause by and some really terrific trees and landscaping. If you’re into photography its a great place to be.

Rental Home 250L per week Bedroom

Here is my bedroom, ever so snuggly and peaceful, the aforementioned bed (comes in a blue pattern also) and various posters and drapes add a delicious shabby ambience . There are heaps of other homes for rent, bigger and around the $500L per week mark. However, this one suited me and my budget down to the ground. You land in a small office that displays the homes up for grabs, just touch the picture of the one you’re interested in and it will plonk a landmark in your inventory to go visit – simple. If you like it, pay the rent box and contact Claire Bricklin for a group tag. (Theres a few other names listed on the notecard you get after renting to get a group tag also)

Rental Home 250L per week Furnished

Lounger in the main space , apologies about the fuzziness on the pillows, SL was hating on me when I took the photo ! I’ve visited at various times of day and night, and it always seems to be running perfectly with no Lag and quiet neighbours. Customer Service is BRILLIANT, I couldn’t ask for more help and I was made to feel at home, really lovely.

Shiny Shabby

Scarlet Creative Chapel NEW

I’ve always always alwaysss wanted to buy an old church and renovate it in real life, so when I saw Scarlet Creative’s new build for Shiny Shabby I was pretty ecstatic.

Scarlet Creative Chapel NEW!!

Its called the “Neva Chapel” ,  includes 2 sizes, 107LI for small and 127LI for large. (21x22x17 footprint). I used the smaller scale for my photos and it seemed to be perfect and to scale for me.

Soooo from the outside its pretty churchified, one of those old type chapels, made of wood that I used to see in old Wild West movies. If you look up to the roof you can see the first clue its been converted, a lovely window gantry that would flood the interior with natural light.

Scarlet Creative NEW

Move inside and check out the stunning work on the windows, peeling paint on the frames and the odd loose wooden board on the walls all add to the atmosphere and charm. There is a narrow ladder leading up to what Id use as the bedroom – its been railed off with metal poles and guide poles – nice touch. All this for just $249L – deal !

I’ve just been over to Shiny Shabby (7.10am UK time) and its jam-packed and super hard to move around, might be worth leaving it a couple of days before you visit. I doggedly stood my ground to get a few items .

Catching up aka I’ve been on vacation

Scarlet Creative - Circa NEW

I’ve been bunking off on vacation for a few days and leaving poor old Zan to do the bulk of the blogging – welp I’m back and boy-oh-boy have I got some catching up to do ! First off the bat is a new release from Scarlet Creative. This is the “petite cabine” , its only 39Li so will fit quite comfortably on a small parcel of land without hogging many prims. The build is primarily wooden , with oceans of glass above in the skylights and all around. For the duration of this round of collabor88 you can snap this up for just 88L !

Scarlet Creative @ collabor88

This new build really shows off perfectly why I adore Charlotte’s work, even in a smaller space she works hard to bring features, it might be just-the-right textures, a few posts to cordon off an area, or maybe a couple of exceptionally pretty glass panels in the windows – there is always always something to delight you!

Aphrodite blooming Spring in Paris new!

The raised platform is useful, frames a sitting area or comfy spot. I utilised it to showcase the new set from Aphrodite available at the “The Seasons Story” event that runs until 30th April. This collection can be bought as separate pieces or as a collection. There is adult and PG versions which is lovely. One thing that will surprise you – is the couch is also a bed ! Mhhmm, it opens right out to a deluxe shape bed – brilliant! Couch mode it has 103 animations – bed mode 34 – in total that’s 19 singles, 118 couples – 255 animations ! There is a really great video here to watch so you can see how it all operates.

Little close up of some of the detailing on the cushions – super sweet.

Circa NEW!!

You may have noticed outside the petite cabine a few potted plants and in particular this gorgeous corner arrangement. It’s by Circa and if you dashhhh to the Four Seasons Market today you can snap it up (along with a load of other pretties out) for 40 – 50% discount! (sorry this is so late) If you can’t make it, head over to the store in a few days and you should find it there.

The Arcade - Scarlet Creative - Mansion Rare win

Its almost time for a new round of The Arcade and I for one will be hitting up the machines and the yardsales to get my fix. Above is the rare win form Scarlet Creative , the “Amelie inspired by spring Mansion”. The colour tones on this are exceptionally beautiful. The roof is a teal green – blue hue, it really sets off the colour of the walls magnificently. Each play is only 50L and the other prizes (lounger,bath,sofa,towel rail,basket) are all worth a try for too. I’m always surprised by the space inside Charlotte’s homes, outside they can appear to be quite delicate little builds, but inside so much room.

Scarlet Creative - The Arcade

I do get a bit obsessed with the textures in the Scarlet Creative builds especially the antiquated plaster effects – I know that’s weird but heyho ! The thing is I do own a place in France (just outside Paris) and so much of the textures are like these – its why I fell in love with the place – its not an excuse honest! Anyhow, many levels to explore and fine features to admire. Thanks Charlotte ❤

Next is the gazebo cafe set, adorable and utterly romantic. I love that it has the new system of attaching the props to you without having to go to your inventory and locate them – just click YES on the pop-up (which I now notice isn’t obscured by the main menu yay!) Even the rose garlands and swags have texture changes available for colours, I stayed with classic red but the pink option was delightful too. Blurb :

The third gazebo is the relaxing hangout – champagne on ice, a crackling fire, would certainly round an evening off to snuggle up in one of the chairs and relax in front of the fire no? Everything is so well detailed and for the amount of decoration included the prims are very low really. It is all soft linked – meaning you can add and subtract as you wish, keep items from sets to go in your home – such as the piano or chairs etc. Anyyyway here’s the write-up:

~♥~ Animated couple sofas with 8 couple animations for sitting together and kiss.
~♥~Animated champagne bucket, rose petals, chandelier
~♥~ Menu controlled realistic fireplace & rug
