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.

Breakfast in bed, reading the papers and some couple animations. This and the bedside tables are sooper low prim and are a collaboration between Katy’s and RNP Animations, brilliant ! The Armoire is one of my favourite items so far, its by %Percent and just shouts quality ! The finish on this piece is excellent, you almost feel as if you could stroke the wood. Doors open to reveal the interior with storage space for *stuff* . (I will be showing more of this magnificent home by Glas Homes later, its a stunner!)

Spargel & Shine is another store I always enjoy, and this Sandalwood Sofa set is worth the teleport to the Expo alone ! Rich velvety textures make it so plush and squishy looking…single pringle and couples poses, plus wearables and items that rez from the activity menu, love it . The complete set comes in at around 20 prims, thats the two couches plus table. The little jug of tulips is by %Percent, just a little touch that speaks volumes. My grandfather clock is by a new-to-me-store called   Roawenwood, they have positively oooodles of releases for the Expo and this just caught my eye ! I actually own a grandfather clock in real life and have to say, this is a really really faithful replica.

Home & Garden Expo

Home Expo 2013 Logo

Hola ! Weeeeeeeeeeeeee ! One of my favourite events is starting . The Home & Garden Expo is ready to roll later today. With an amazing eleven sims to wander and shop in, party in and play in ! You really shouldnt miss it, there’s also a breedables fair contained within it *ohmaiii*, SO much to do, So much to buy !

Home & Garden Expo 2013 !

Lets get this ginormous partay started then huh?! You will find each designer has items on their pitch that are donation pieces. This means a percentage goes to the RFL charity collection. Each Expo exhibitor will be selling special new items for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society so you can shop and help cancer patients and their families in real life too. This year’s Expo will feature eight regions full of home products, two sims just for the breedables fair and one entertainment sim where you can take a break from shopping and party in style. There is going to be a lot to see and do at this year’s Expo!

Home & Garden Expo 2013 whatnext

I’ve cobbled together a little reflection place for myself out of some of the designers items for the Expo this year…you dont have to be an interior designer to make your home gorgeous, the creators do the hard work for you, just buy and place it…voila! If you’re a little more experienced and want a more individual look, shop around, pick pieces that will co-ordinate with each other and create your own special area.

Home & Garden Expo Imaginimals

mustn’t forget that there is also the breedables fair within the Expo, yesyesyes two sims worth of exciting breedables. I saw Imaginimals, which I’ve not seen before, the kittys look sooper cute so I shall definitely be popping over to find out all about them!

Above is a fantabulous home from [Black Tulip]. I really couldn’t belive it’s just 28 prims…inside its so beautifully textured with real depth and warmth…also rather spacious, so plenty of room to decorate and use up those prims the build didn’t take yay! I think it would look equally good on summer grassland…as well as for the Winter.

Last up…and its more decor because there’s just SO much gorgeousness at the Expo…check out this fireplace….isnt it just precious? I so love this style….and its just 2 prims ! Lovely piece for your home and it wont eat up those prims…look carefully on the side of the fire..do you see the pinecones dangling? Those are just one example of the Winter decor pieces you can find at [CIRCA]….so pretty and a little different from anything else I’ve seen around this year. I’m enjoying the fire in my snuggle chair by Katy’s Kreations…complete with tray and snacks…makes for a cozy evening…head over and take a peek around the Expo…theres SO much more than shopping to enjoy. Live entertainment, competitions, a hunt, a raffle, don’t forget to check Santas sack at each store and see if you’ve been naughty or nice (gifts!) and MORE !
