It’s that time of year again, where the 6th Annual Second Life Home and Garden festival will soon open up in just two days on May 24th and running until June 3rd 2013. Personally, I’m very excited about the event. I love SL Home and Garden furnishings and the fact that it helps benefit Relay for Life is even better.
In my pictures here, I’m showing a sneak preview of two stores that will be at the event. The house is from Tranquil Homes by xLeEx Smythe, and is called the Cloverdale. I think the house is really pretty on the outside and the build does contain mesh so the prim impact is lower, the only tiny complaint I have about the house and this may be just a preference thing is that the ceilings are a bit low for me. But the house does come partially furnished and like I said it’s adorable and you could probably mod the ceiling if you like. This home is ideal for a huge Second Life family as it is very spacious and the rooms have nicely textured walls.
The landscaping that I used in front of the house, I absolutely love because I’m not great at sl landscaping is from Two Moon Gardens also at the expo, I just rezzed and moved it around a bit and no real fuss at all. Amazing! For more info check out the official SL Home and Garden Expo blog here: http://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com/
Dysfunctional Dolly Designs is a new to me store that I found out about from the Fantasy Fair. The booth that they have at the Fantasy Fair on Dragonspire can be gotten to through this link: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20DragonSpire/78/160/39/ If you would like to check out this beautiful low prim mesh bathing set.
The Fantasy Fair opens it’s doors at 6 AM and that is in a couple hours from writing this post.
The items in this set from Dysfunctional Dolly Designs are quite cute and also inexpensive and the tub comes with a good variety of animations and you can also try out changing the texture a bit on the feet of it. The Antler candelabra in the photo is one of their Relay for Life contributions and it is quite cool. When I was taking the photos for this post I we pretending that I was staying in a quaint country inn. It’s fun what the imagination can do.
The Second Life Home and Garden Expo which is a Relay for Life event opens today May 19th at 6am SLT, and remain open 24 hours each day until it closes on May 28th at 10pm SLT.
I was granted early access to look around and I stopped at the reBourne display and fell in love with a beautiful dome house and tried the best I could to capture it’s beauty.
But you see, this house much like all of the homes by reBourne must be seen in person to really experience. It is a sensory delight. The textures are perfect, there are sounds and for me someone who cannot see shadows in Second Life yet I love the shadows that I can see in the house from the sublime texturing.
If you are looking for a beautiful beach home whether on land or in the sky this would be perfect for you. This house is flawless, you must see it at the expo.
There are 14 sims to explore so if you are in the market for a beautiful new home there are plenty to suit anyone’s taste and budget. It’s just a matter of checking it all out and taking in all the beauty that can be found.
So my talented and gorgeous wifey Miss Marleen Vaughan was asked to make something for the Rather Unfairgrounds Relay for life charity event going on this weekend.. and the theme is slightly villianous, slightly steampunk and she came up with this fantastically creative item which she named “The Sinister Goggles” for something that is a new project in the works called Vaughans house of curiousities. For 123L you can purchase these goggles and 100 percent of your purchase goes towards helping Relay for Life. I need to go and look around the event more but it looks wicked cool.. I will tell you what is in the notecard and you will have to go check it out for yourself as it only lasts this weekendThe Rather UnFairground
