I was off like a rocket when I spotted this from Muniick ! A retro telephone table plus a phone. Both items have colour change and all really fabbo aged and faded tones – 4Li for the table, 2Li for the phone – and just $25L – what a steal.
This was sent as a Subscribers gift from a shop I do know well called “% Percent” because not only do I have a few previous sub gifts but I actually spent Lindens in this shop, shocking I know.
First the freebie then I will rabbit on about the shop. It’s the simple 3 candle center piece. A decent size, it’s on a small table, I was too busy playing with the menu to check if you can mod to make it smaller or not. The menu gives you a lot of options such as colour, density, volume etc and obviously I chose the green. I took this picture just in my sim setting and you can see how much glow it gives off. I LOVE things that add atmosphere to your home and candlelight is a great way of adding a layer of colour to your living space. I didn’t take a picture but I zoomed right out and this candle sets off my house perfectly.
Over the years I’ve gotten some really nice sub gifts from this shop and as I’ve said I’ve also bought from this shop. The range of furniture and decor is heavily retro-influenced so most of it wouldn’t fit into a lot of peoples homes unless of course, that is your style, but so many of the pieces are just classic and unique. Before I logged off I had a look around and spotted the pieces I already own but damn there is a couple of items I’m contemplating on returning to buy when I log back in.
PS. You can buy this candle set but the red version for only 50Ld or if you’re slightly CRAZY and don’t want to slap the sub-board then you can buy this colour for 50Lds as well..no just slap the sub-trust me you won’t regret it.
The Challenge has begun and I’ve got alllll the news to share with you! The items from % percent really stood out for me, absolutely brilliant collection of army items from the old days. Above we have the civil war field table and Grants camp chair. READ the info note as you can change textures on the chair, lovely selections too. The table has an assortment of pieces on it – love the little photo frame with the kittycat in it – awww ❤
There is also a rather terrific bed, it must be for an Officer, its dead posh. Again texture change for most parts of it and as you can see above totally awesome texturing work on the metal parts. You can also get the matching trunk, and yes I really DID trawl through all the texture combo’s to see if they matched up at all with the bed. (they dooo)
lk Heres the bed in more detail, isn’t it just to.die.for? Great poses too and everrrrr so low prim.
Mynx Inc have this delightful old cottage on the market place for just 10L. Its partial mesh and I used it as a background for the photos above. Spacious open plan living area downstairs, and a gorgeous space upstairs which would be perfect for a bedroom / bathroom. There are two other 10L homes in this market place only store, give them a whirl – this one is sooper cool.
Last but by no means least , is this from kuro “remnants of war” , it really touched my heart. So small yet so significant. 1Li and a really special item to place on a desk in your home or office.
Have to confess that I’ve had this furniture for quite a while and I’ve not had anywhere to put it until I picked up an excellent low prim and FREE skyhome. As soon as I rezzed the Seorn Appartment from The Designer Warehouse I knew I’d found the perfect setting for my EoD furniture.
This is unashamedly men’s furnishings from the beige retro look to the manly poses in the furniture but that to me doesn’t put me off. I like its clean cut look and it’s retro style. Normally I like to pose next to furnishing to give some sort of size indicator but this furniture is definitely over sized and that is deliberate. These pieces are big and bold but not the ugly badly lazy over sized stuff that you can pick up for a few lindens.
Hopefully you can see though that this desk is not over sized. I have a slightly smaller than average AV and I don’t think I look dwarfed by the desk at all. This is statement furniture dare I say Lazy Mans furniture because it took me 5 mins to rezz and arrange and I had a fully furnished stylish living room so even if you don’t think you have the time or the vision to make a place look great just get it from EoD.
Comparison shot. Normally I would never compare the quality of one item against another but since the shop where I got the piano on the left from has long gone from SL I feel ok to do it this time. The left hand one was state of the art, expensive and top class but compare it to the modern-day version from E0D and guess which one got binned.
If you were lucky enough to get yourself the amazing Billiard/Snooker table then this the same great quality. Plus you don’t just get this you get a brown version as well and both come with lid up or lid down options. The books, wine etc decorations are included but you can remove them if you want and I wish I had because you can get a great stet of candlesticks from EoD as well which would also look great. Menu inc 10 sitting, 3 activities, 14 couple and 12 adult poses.
Don’t panic because EoD is in the Four Walls Hunt and still has The Great Outdoor Hunt item out (your looking for a tree in a box and a tree stump) and I know since I have both items they’re worth the few lindens they cost.
A free home for all. Picked this up at The Designer Warehouse for nowt, nothing, nada I also picked up some great stuff so even if your not after a new home still get yourself over there slap the Free Group Board and start collecting because they have a lot of free treats out for us. This home which as you can see has a large picture window also has 2 skylight windows and great texturing/lighting and it’s only 4 PRIMS! I had to check that a couple of times because how low primmed is that! and totally mesh. So pop over grab the freebies but make note of the great designer offers which are on and when PayDay comes you can go back and treat yourself yet again.
Big Fat OOPS because I gave out my home LM instead of The Designer Warehouse one. Thats what happens when you post after struggling through a cold. I hope those who TPed to my home didn’t panic. I actually keep my home open for anyone to wander through so I wouldn’t have minded but then again I did post the wrong LM. SO get yourself to the right one now and again make sure you join the group and grab those goodies.
Cleo Design has shared their items for the Vintage Fair with me…I played around with these for hours ! I adore this retro set…especially the basket weave chairs ….they have colour change…so can look funktastic in your home no matter what ! The record player has such a sweet song in it…go give it a whirl…(gawd is it ageing me that I recognise the clock? My nana had one exactly the same lol)
Another collection that’s out for this event..is “auntys sofa set”…you get all that you see here..sofa,table,decor items, lamp, rug & framed print. Now the really interesting thing is..the sofa holds a secret! mhmm…not only does it have colour change options…(on all parts not just the whole thing yay!) if you choose the “lay” poses that L-shaped end piece slidessssss out…and then when you want to sit…it slidessssss back in…how coolbeans is that! Have to say…you’ll be really impressed with the animations in this…there are just SO many..even exercises ohlala…
I think one of the reasons I admire Cleo Design’s handywork so much..is her knack of putting together a collection of pieces that light up a space…take this set above “piano corner”…pretty and functional….and will make a corner or side area of a room just full of character. The piano is crammed with music..seriously check it..loads of songs, it plays beautifully and has the animations for you to lounge or play….absolutly adore the old fashioned chair…as is usual with Cleo designs sets..you can use as much or as little of each set as you wish..it isnt hard linked…so depending on your prim budget…use what you want. If you havent been to the Vintage Fair yet…go take a peek and have a play on the furniture…thanks Cleom ❤
