What Tea for Two leads to…

Yet another tea party! Well food is the spice of life, and I was happy to get one of Raindale‘s new sets – this time it’s the “Sugarvale Set”. It’s not designer Keira’s typical style, however I think she’s made a great job of this cute gacha set which reminds me of Spring. Only another couple of months to go!

Sugarvale is a gacha set and you can find it at the new round of The Crossroads Event, in the gacha section. Here’s the pieces in detail.

The Rare:
Pavilion and it’s 22 LI. Plenty of room in it, it’s beautifully detailed.

The Commons:
~ Beaded curtains which look great at any time of day but do have some glow for low light – there’s a pair of mirrored curtains included.
~ Lantern – 2 versions, one with particles which float out little glow spheres like dandelion clocks.
~ Ottoman which has 4 poses and a HUD which gives you practically any colour you want.
~ Frames – one with a flower bouquet and one which is plain where you can add your own pictures.
~ Chairs – 2 copies with 10 animations each, some of which rez props like newspaper, drink and book.
~ Table to match the chairs.
~ Carpet – with a HUD for five pastel shades – mauve, blue, green, pink and cream.
~ A vase of daisies which gives a flower on touch.
~ Swiss roll with knife and slice all ready to scoff! The Swiss roll gives a piece on touch.
~ Beautiful little Heart shaped cups on saucers in 3 pastel shades.

Other Home & Garden items:

Two Moon Gardens – “Behind Closed Walls” garden which has a footprint of 43 by 43m, is 127 prims with Permissions of Copy/Modify. Includes dancing butterflies emitter, bee sounds, dandelion emitter, sunny days nature sounds. I moved the flora around a lot as the garden is completely modify, and the bees will move with the hive.

│T│L│C│ Home Collection – Pheasant family. You get the cock pheasant and two versions of his lady friend – light and dark feathers. They are both animated.

Nest & Eggs – Moz – because the pheasant pair are well used to “Tea for Two”!

The Tale of Maplemoor Woods

with 10 comments

raindale-maplemoor-gacha-the-crossroads-event

 

You won’t find Maplemoor Woods on any map, try as you might. It’s a secret place and you can only get to it through a portal. This portal lets through children and those grown ups who still retain the magic of childhood in their hearts. Maplemoor exists in an eternal late spring where young animals and birds are born and brought up, they make their home in the woods. But they’re not like any creatures you’ve seen before. For instance, they really appreciate afternoon tea! They’re not always polite, as you’ll see in the pictures – the bullfinch has landed on the teatime cake and is not even waiting for his slice to be cut.

raindale-maplemoor-gacha-2-the-crossroads-event

Afternoon tea is presided over by the Great Horned Owl, who can move his head all the way around. This is useful to check on visitors who may want an extra place at the table. The mother deer keeps an eye on the proceedings, she has her favourite bridge so she can see everything going on and even if afternoon tea should take place at midnight, she can switch on the lamps. Time has very little meaning in such an enchanted place. Poppies and flowers bloom all the year round and the poppies are not only red but all colours of the rainbow. The ones you see here are yellow.

The kingfisher sits patiently on the portal, his large beak is useful for pulling visitors through, but no doubt he’ll be getting his slice of cake later on. And there’s always a wishing well. Not only for water – as there’s no rivers in the woods – but the well grants wishes to visitors and inhabitants of Maplemoor alike. But be careful what you wish for! And don’t forget, you’ll need an extra wish to get you back home 🙂
