I had a notice through from Spargel & Shine earlier, I was interested in this gorgeous sundial straight away! It’s at a new shopping area called The French Farm, not many units taken atm but I would think it’ll grow quite quickly. The Fleur de lis sundial is on offer at just $75L. Just 2Li also – brilliant!

Home & Garden Expo (squeeee)

2014 Home and Garden Expo Logo 512

Well hubbidy Hubba its time for the Home & Garden Expo yippeee ! I’ve been over and zoomed around – eyes wide and stunned by the glory of it all. Seriously, you MUST go !

Home and Garden Expo 2014, benefitting RFL of SL, opens on September 16, and runs through the 28th. Spread over nine sims, HGE features the finest in Second Life Home and Garden design product and creator tools. Over 85 participating creators have joined HGE, one of the first mega-events of the 2015 Relay For Life fundraising drive in Second Life.

Relay For Life of Second Life is in its tenth season, as Second Life residents across the grid band together to raise funds for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society. The funds raised go to finance cancer research. During the 2014 season, RFL of SL broke the $415,000.00 USD mark for total funds raised.

This year’s HGE is supported by nine Platinum Sponsors and eight Gold Sponsors. It also includes, for the first time, a comprehensive shopping guide listing all donation items, new releases, hunt, raffle and gacha items. New rules and a new layout for HGE reduces lag and provides ample display space for each of the participants’ products.

Home Expo - Master Map 1024

This is the map of allllll the stores covering  as you can see its a HUGE event. 100% of the funds collected from sponsors, exhibitors, contributors, Relay For Life vendors and kiosks, the Live Auction, Silent Auction, Raffle ticket sales, and the RFLofSL gacha machines,  get paid to RFLofSL, in support of cancer research. RFLofSL is an American Cancer Society fundraiser, but research for a cure is globally supported, with 15% of the research funds getting dispersed internationally.  After all, cancer is a global problem.

HGE Spargel & Shine Maison

As I was gliding about I spotted this home build by Spargel & Shine and instantly fell in love. Its called “Maison d’Ete” and is magnificent, its massive and amazingly detailed. Tess Spargel certainly out did herself with this show stopper, renaissance style design, rezzing drapes options, texture change windows, and warm marble fireplaces. I found myself peering at the little intricate details, the window knobs, the fantastical painted ceiling…Frankly I got a bit breathless ! There are also interior pieces to decorate with – which if time allows I will show later. (I’m fighting with my graphics card at the moment- we had a tiff)

HGE American Cancer Society Garden of Hope

I also wandered over to the American Cancer Society sim – which is part of the collection of Expo islands and visited the garden of Hope. It’s always one of my favourite spots and I visit it each year. Cancer isn’t all about dying, it’s about survivors (more survivors these days than ever) and of course it’s about hope. I love this inscribed stone – I think I photographed it last year, the words are lovely. It’s not all about shopping and there’s plenty to do and see and participate in such as hunts, classes etc. See the blog for more info right here: 7th Annual SecondLife  Home & Garden Expo

Instead of a lengthy list of landmarks, heres all the exhibitors and which Expo sim they are on – just get your map up and type in Home Expo, and a list of the sims with appear, tp to the one you want (or just visit them all!)

Snowflake Hunt or “A tale of two tables”

 

Spargel & Shine AGSH

I’m always one of the first to arrive at any event held at the Antiques Square! Mostly because two of my favourite antique stores are there. Spargel & Shine always always alwayssss make something lovely and wonderous for events, plus you wont leave empty handed if you have a wander around the shop – it’s all sooper pretty (and thankfully low prim!) This is the snowflake hunt, I was so early some stores hadn’t set up yesterday, but I did find Spargel & Shines item, this fully loaded table above. Have to say that the crystal cut-glass vase really captured my heart, and the lamp even works ! So much pretty for so few prims hurruah! Youre looking for a snowflake, most stores seemed to have a clue to help out, each gift is just 5L.

Nadeau Shoppe - AGS Hunt item

I also hopped along to Nadeau Shoppe, another firm fav of mine. Cant believe I found the snowflake here, I’m usually SO rubbish at hunts ! This is the gift above, a lovely little festive table to grace your home. Few in prims but big on style, its won a place in my SL home. Another beautiful shop to browse, with some unusual pieces to buy and collect. You really should explore the area, its magical and Snowy. I took a horse-drawn sleigh ride around the square and had a skate on the pond in the centre.

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.

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 Soul Effects Hunt wishing well

Above is the prize from Soul Effects, isn’t it just adorbs?! Wishing well surrounded by sweet yellow flowers (it actually works as a donation box also) Phew my little paws are aching, but I dont want you to miss out on a fantastic event.

Spargel & Shine HUnt gift_001

I do so enjoy the Antiques Grid Show Spring Hunt, and really look forward to searching out all the goodies. I’ve only had time to find one of the prizes so far and that was at Spargel & Shine. The prize is this deeelicious vintage little table, it holds a selection of toiletries and sat behind the tray is the most beautiful jug of babys breath….its won a place in my own bedroom, alongside my dressing table. The website holds all the info about participating stores, with landmarks etc…all prizes are quality items and will cost you just 10L…steal! (btw, there is a hint giver on the wall inside the store, makes it a lot easier to find)

Antiquated Love Hunt


Purely by chance I happened upon the Antiquated Love Hunt, in a new-to-me shopping area ! Such a pretty place to wander around and so many stores with things I want *squeee*. As I was there I thought Id try my luck at hunting…surprisingly I found a few. Youre looking for a small pink heart, no hints given..but fairly easy to locate. I found this stunning “hall” table set in Sweet Sorrows…I thought it looked rather nice in our bedroom actually..beautifully made..and is menu driven with single poses & couples…



I was fortunate enough to also find the gift from Spargel & Shine…how stuning it is too…a vignette…stool, long mirror and lingerie box on the floor..read the noteacrd with this so you dont miss what you can do! If you touch the box on the floor it gives you a wearable lingerie gift, choose the pose for opening gift…et voila ! If you touch the cherub card on the mirror, youll get a card to hold for the read pose..absolutely gorgeousss, low prim too !



Just because I can..Im wearing that lully lingerie again,  from Awear that I found last week on the market place (dont forget guys, its transferable and free, so treat your bebe) Im also showing the latest release from Finesmith..”scatterheart”, deeliciously decadent necklace, bracelet and earings…a real scene stealer…it comes in other metal tones also but I just adored the black & red , just 659L per set, they arent transferable, but they might be added to the market place in time for V day..you can also get gift cards in the main store .
