Vintage Chillax on the Beach

with 4 comments

 

Chez Moi Furnitures have come up with the best beach set of the season, so far! At least in my humble opinion but then I do love Vintage. You can have any colour you like  as long as it’s pink with white trimmings. With a strategically placed white kitten (for my PG blog), I’m ready to chillax and ignore the Election, just for today 🙂 The peacock is only interested in the cookies, after all, he’s a sensible chap.

 

 

The peacock is a new pet and he’s from TLC Home Collection. You’ll find two versions in the White Peacocks pack, currently at the Cosmopolitan Event – tail up and tail down. I actually remember when as a child we spent some years in Sri Lanka, there were quite a few white peacocks in our village who used to guard the area from snakes which they would kill and sometimes eat. They were allowed to go in and out of the houses to do this, encouraged by tasty titbits left for them.   Very useful birds! When there was rain coming they used to dance. During the mating season the peahens were embarrassed by the fights between the peacocks and used to turn around so they didn’t have to see the chaos.  I don’t know how many folks used to observe this but I was and still am fascinated by Nature in all Her glory.

 

 

Here’s all the gen in detail:-

ADAM Mesh Body – v.1.4b – Skin 1 #9 with neck blend tattoo – perfect for when you want that combination with the Avatar Head

Hanging out at the Garden Centre with Goose

Goose - Garden Cafe Bistro Set

The new edition of the Lost & Found Event has started and my pal, Wendz, has made an excellent post about all the lovely knick knacks you can pick up there. Read all about it – blog.

I braved the lag and got about four stores in to find Goose‘s brilliant ‘Garden Café Bistro Set’, before crashing into the stratosphere. This comes in two varieties – a mid colour wood and a light wood -both equally delicious. Also exclusive to the Event.

Having rezzed the lot in our garden, Arrchie ‘n me sat down for a coffee and while I went on and on about the state of the universe and he listened patiently *laughs*, I turned the camera around to find a scene strangely reminiscent of an English garden centre with cold frames and conifers in the background… perfect! And yes, it’s a typically English day out, a visit to the local garden centre to browse the wares and then sit idly in the adjoining café , preferably outdoors in the cold weather and pouring rain sipping afternoon tea – you have to be there to appreciate it.

So what do you get in this set?  Firstly, there’s the table and a choice of two chairs – one with cushion, one without. Then to go on the table you have a coffee tray, breadboard and knife and choice of two coffee mugs.  Plus, there’s a chalkboard to put by the side. Say it like that and it sounds ordinary… but it isn’t. The mesh work is beautiful and the warm wood texture I really appreciated. There are many shabby style garden sets about, and quite a few wrought iron types and white wood variations, but not many sets like this one. So thanks, Tyrek!

Chair 3 LI – Chair with cushion 3 LI – Table 2 LI – Board with bread 2 LI – Tray with coffee 4 LI – Decor mug (2 types included)  1 LI – Chalkboard 1 LI
