Home & Garden Expo 2017 – Garden Idyll

with 4 comments

 

As it’s a bank holiday weekend, I thought today we could have a Garden Idyll.  You know the sort of thing – nothing to do but laze around in the garden (with no thought as to actually gardening) or scurry indoors to the sun room for tea if the skies turn grey.

As usual, you can click on the pictures for the larger versions, and all items are detailed below with direct SLurls to the Home & Garden 2017 Expo stalls.

First of all, we need a Sun Room, so here’s one By Dorian, a lovely medium sized building that is both cosy and manageable for a small garden.

*~*~*

The daft sheep by Toys Design invites you to sit on him, and my daft Shib has already taken up residence in that fabulous Ficus Alcove by Organica. The fountain is also By Dorian, flower buckets by Raindale.

*~*~*

Items by Organica, the potted “Hens & Chicks” are the Donation items. These are Sempervivum succulent plants and they are often used on roof gardens for their variegated colour display and drought resistant properties.  I’ve also included the paving stones tile, Hyacinth plants and Hyacinths in Pots which you can purchase in a FatPack at the Organica stall.

*~*~*

The other side of the Sun Room is a bit of a grove for faeries.  These beautiful items (including the fairy meadows) are all by Deelish-ous Designs and I do urge you to visit their stall at the Expo, its one of the most enchanting.

*~*~*

Fae folk in the trees…

*~*~*

… and taking a nap in a matchbox! Can you believe this cute little item is only 4 Land Impact?

*~*~*

Inside the Sun Room are lots of items to remind you about gardening *laughs* .  I just love that potting shelf with a multitude of pots and a watering can – it’s part of a gacha by Feather & Nest.  The patio set is by Bee Designs and is one of their Donation items. You even get the grass and flowers with it. Garden Candles are by ChiC Buildings and they’re giving off a warm glow and that magnificent Fig Tree and Swan Deco on the wall is by La Luna Nature & Art.

*~*~*

Meanwhile, at the other end of the Sun Room, you can see I’ve been doing some work on the car.  I dragged the paint machine inside in case of rain showers!  Gacha item by Mesh India.

*~*~*

With rain clouds threatening, it’s time to retire to the forest where we can huddle around the fire and stuff our faces courtesy of Raindale’s wonderful Forestholm gacha. I went to get some more sandwiches and when I returned, this was the scene awaiting me. Comatose dogs and some forest wildlife encroaching on my tea! Only the kitten was alert and I’m not sure if she was just eyeing the cupcakes 🙂

Spring Things at Cosmopolitan!

with 2 comments

A new round of Cosmopolitan has just opened – Round (14/4) – and it runs up to the end of April 9th. Lots of gorgeous Home & Garden pieces – here’s a few of them.

Oh my goodness – Myrrine has a “Garden Gacha”! I’ve always admired Myrrine’s pieces – they are just so joyful. Don’t think I’ve seen a gacha from them before.

 

Cosmopolitan - Myrrine - Garden Gacha

 

Collect all the pieces of gardening essentials including the Garden Shack itself which is 6 LI and Rare. The other Rare is a small ground greenhouse at 3 LI. The Commons are Flowers 2 LI, Watering Can with Flowers 3 LI, Garden Cabinet with various potting items 3 LI, Herbs Rack 2 LI, Plant Display 3 LI, Steps with Plant Pots 3 LI. All are Transfer/Modify and it’s 50 $L per play.

This is a beautiful piece, it’s called the “Spring Love Bench” and is built by Bee Designs. You get everything shown in the picture including a side tree, hydrangeas, little kitten, lighting… the lot for only 37 Land Impact.

Cosmopolitan - Bee Designs - Spring Love Bench

 

This is a very romantic bench with 16 cuddles and assorted sits including MM/FF/MF plus two relax n read poses. This would make a lovely Spring hideaway in your garden, just add trees as I’ve done in the background to frame it all. Here’s a close-up.

Another landscaping piece, this time from M. Law Designs, the “Kamloops Tree House” is a much more private and explicit hideaway. When you sit upstairs it’s comforting with the triangular walls around you, the front is open so suiting private land.

At a Land Impact of 66, this smashing tree house has a lot going for it. The design includes the flowers, butterflies and bleached out tree upon which the house rests. Beautiful texturing, everything has been thought out extremely well for romantic roleplay. Just look at the detailed hanging ceiling lights – excellent!

There are a lot of carefully thought out animations included – 19 cuddles, 26 intimate poses, plus around 20 erotic poses. Permissions are Copy/Modify. I would suggest you go along to Cosmopolitan and try out the display piece to see the possibilities.

The “Lakeside Gazebo”, built by Dorian, has lots of possibilities. Up on tall stilts, the gazebo can be placed on a riverside or lakeside, maybe a sloping beach or even sunk into the ground as a garden landscaping piece. It’s 21 LI in total and Permissions are Copy/Modify.

Cosmopolitan - By Dorian - Lakeside Gazebo

 

Dorian’s gazebo has a number of animations. Some are standing, leaning against the railing looking out on the lake/river and these are for up to 2 sitters – various poses. Then the benches will take up to 3 sitters and those are 5 male sits, 6 female sits and 7 poses for couples. Beautifully built and textured, it would make useful statement landscaping in a variety of places. Here it is again and those stilts are much longer than you see in the photograph.

The larger Home & Garden display pieces are on the top platform, TP from inside the doorway of Cosmopolitan sale room. Here’s your TAXI for the sim.
