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 🙂

Cold Days ~ Warm Heart

“People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy”  ~ Anton Chekhov

There are some winter Home & Garden that gives me a warm glow!  22769 ~ [Bauwerk] has brought out a number of new releases this month, so I thought I’d put them altogether and do a whole scene, inside and out. It was very enjoyable and I must say I really like fiddling away until it all looks OK *laughs*… I’m only a beginner here so you’ll have to forgive me all my fellow bloggers who are much better at mass decorating 🙂

One of those crisp, winter days when the sun is out and it can be warm behind glass. The shadows make everything seem extra pure and white.  Then inside is cosy towards evening, when you get that special glow of a copper sunset. The cottage has two rooms, one has a fireplace.  Here’s looking through the doorway from the bedroom to the lounge.

Pretty cosy, hmm?  There’s plenty of pieces in the gacha to furnish the two rooms, add a few extras and you’d be well on your way.  You’d have to take into account that I copied some of the pieces, which you wouldn’t get in a gacha.  Here’s Christmas lunch set up – a warming soup and Christmas pud with lashings of eggnog!

And so to bed – hopefully not too tipsy!  I don’t think the rabbit or the robin would much appreciate being squashed. There are some beautifully Meshed rafter in this cottage, and set into the roof – two windows which let in the light and add to the feeling of warmth.

Just a quick close-up of the tree so you can see those beautiful, glossy glass ornaments. They are so cute with little holiday things inside, one even has a miniature tree. I changed the snowy tree to green spruce to give you a better idea of the ornaments.  Please see below for details of all items used in the pictures.
