Another Kismet moment in SL. I had literally just popped into Follow Us in the hopes that Laurent83 Waco has started to put out Crimbo items (thats Christmas to the unchildish) and sadly apart from trays of scrummy foods and other stuff not much at the moment but then I had spotted this “Fruity kitchen” and it hurt not to either buy it or send a begging note to Laurent83 Waco asking for a copy to blog because it’s so “preppers” and then out of the blue I received one in my invent the next day.
I rezzed my Woodcutters house and omg how good does this look even from the doorway. It also gave me the opportunity to show off the pot belly coal stove which is not included in with the kitchen but its rustic charm compliments it. A lovely replacement for a full cooker as it comes with your meal heating on top and a kettle. Not shown is the matching coal shuttle and poker set or the colour choices. The standard black a more unusual white and an even more unique warm cherry colour.
The kitchen isn’t packed with poses but that s not such a draw back especially when the ones included are pretty damned good. A new one is this ruffling though the pages of a cooking magazine, smooth and very realistic and with the same perfect poses as with some of his other kitchen sets, mixing food in a bowl, pouring seasoning on food etc all smooth and flowing.
The reason I refer to this one as “preppers” is because there is a very basic rustic charm to it. Everything you see comes with it all set out and ready to go so no need to shop around for kitchen accessories and then the fiddling editing them into place you simply rez this as it is (only the cupboard door is separate so rezz in edit mode but if you forget then editing the cupboard door in place is easy peasy). The shelves are packed with tinned goods, fruit n veg, pots and pans, tray of cutlery and cups and saucers so basically everything that makes a kitchen look complete without all the fuss of buying seperate items and having to fiddle them into place. The very rustic wood sink is filled with pans waiting to be washed love the added rustic tap. Click on the door under the sink and there is even a cooler box with trays of sliced meats and cake. The top is cluttered with kitchen ware and there is a crock pot, sadly I cut it out of the picture, with pots in slowly cooking away. I just LOVE IT and when I pack up my “winter home” with its inbuilt kitchen then this is the one I will be using.
Being a Windlight addict I love to use it but of course it can enhance and sometimes ruin the look of furniture, settings and even how you AV looks so I always like to take as natural but the I loved that warm setting so much I had to use it but when I got this off Baylen I really appreciated how he’s managed to capture the magazine, pose and colouring so I’m going to add this on. This kitchen looks great in any setting.
Not shown but if you really want to complete the look then go further into Follow Us and check out the “Rural Table”. This is a perfect compliment to the Fruit Kitchen because it uses a lot of the same texturing. With the kerosine oil lamp, small milk churn and coffee grinder rustic enough for country living but plates of scrummy looking cakes and sweets, napkins, cups and saucers pretty enough for all. Chairs come with inbuilt poses, only a couple but both are smooth and very natural flowing.
If all of that isn’t enough then check out this FREE Group Gift from Follow Us. OK I’ve now been a member of Follow Us for so long I can’t remember if there is a joining fee I promise to drop Laurent a note and ask but even if there is a fee this is one group that actually does put out not only a regular monthly group gift but also a sub gift, he also has special offers out all the time usually in the form of a large discount on certain items which when they go they go so at the moment the easels that have the discounted items on are blank, but I know that soon there will be another offer up there. All the special offers, discounts, group gifts are in the entrance area so easy to find but make sure to check out not just the shop but outside where he has his outdoor items.
This cooker is perfect for the smaller home, just for fun I rezzed it into a closet LOL but it fits my AV perfectly well and with a couple of poses in it very sweet and I know because one of my secret addictions is small homes that finding a cooker than can fit in is a real find. Check out the carbon on the bottom of the frying pan and yes thats what mine looks like in RL!
Check out his Marketplace because there photos are excellent and you can see that there are some brilliant Dollarbies and 10Lds items but also that his prices are more than reasonable. Nice to see that his blog is also updated on a regular basis so check that out as well (and it has a much better picture of this Group gift).
