Blogger’s Challenge #2 – open to all!

with 9 comments

It’s my turn for Meri’s Blogger’s Challenge, which we’re doing every fortnight. Everyone is welcome to join in! It’s pure blogging, doesn’t have to be marketed anywhere and it’s just for fun.

Now, as most of the blogging world knows, it is FaMESHed Event’s 7th Anniversary round and there’s a whole lotta gifting going on.  The challenge is to make a post using gifts from this fabulous anniversary round.  It’s calmed down enough that you’ll be able to get into the Event if you haven’t already.

  1. You can choose between Fashion or Home & Garden or even both if you want to!
  2. Two items (fashion or décor according to what you’ve chosen) can be used in addition to the free gifts and they can be from anywhere.
  3. For the H&G bloggers, walls and floors are allowed as you’ve got to have those.
  4. For the Fashion bloggers, props and poses are allowed as they add to the scenes.
  5. Everything else must be free gifts from FaMESHed 7th Anniversary.
  6. Please add your post address in the comments!

Here’s my attempt and I’m doing the Home & Garden choice.

Cottage Garden

with 8 comments

 

As I’ve said before, it’s not easy to create an English Cottage garden virtually and make it look realistic, this is the best I’ve done so far. It has that seemingly carefree look (which is anything but) where you’ve just scattered wild flower and grass seeds at the beginning of the season, together with a few well chosen shrubs… and it’s all come to fruition.

The beautiful stone cottage is by Galland Homes and you’ll find it at the 7th Anniversary edition of FaMESHed, don’t forget to pick up all the gifts when you visit! Stonehill Cottage has a deep stone base so will be able to go into various hilly landscapes in addition to flat ground as here. Downstairs is an open floor set-up with a welcoming old style stone fireplace with chimney going up the side of the house. There’s wooden beams, plaster walls, and stairs that lead up to an open plan bedroom. The cottage would be suitable in a modern country style community and could also double as a house or tavern within a role-play setting. Well worth checking out the DEMO at FaMESHed.

The garden wall and gate are just perfect for the stone cottage and these are quite the nicest landscaping pieces I’ve seen in this genre so far this year, they are by Serenity Style. Also featuring Raindale’s brilliant Riverbreak gacha for 6º Republic and although I’ve put this in the garden it could go anywhere by a river, in a forest or wherever you want it.

Natural Habitat

It’s all about neutral tones today, soft greys and creams, toning wood, black iron. The colour comes from emerald green plants, tasty food and a glowing fire. I’m featuring the new lounge set from Cheeky Pea which is so cosy and has a FatPack texture changer in lighter tones suitable for spring into summer decorating. It’s well worth looking at. The sofa animations are nice as well, unisex and should do for most gender couples with a bit of adjustment. I adore the petal ceiling lamp and the succulent circles living wall art which make the “Vide” set that little bit different.

The scene is set in my favourite house of the year so far, KraftWork’s “West of the Rain” home. It’s very adaptable and all on one floor but you don’t feel hemmed in by it at all. This is achieved at least partially by the entrance hall which has a high ceiling with a roof skylight spilling light into the space. And then there’s a roomy porch for outdoor living areas. Gorgeous and only 96 Land Impact for all that detail.
