Perfect Garden

6.4.1

It has been a while for me… but I am finally back blogging for RVi Design and it is such a relief. Her newest release kinda makes me a tad sad though. I only say that because last week I was out in my flower beds working my behind off to get the plants in the ground and weeds out of the beds and I log into SL and quickly rez up my own garden. Why can’t things work like that in RL???? I would set my RL garden up just like Roshy has created here with these adorable potted plants and shelves. They even come with adorable signs so just in case you didn’t notice what you had there you could read it. Hmm… curious what other kind of plants I could put out… maybe a weed sign would work?

I want to take a moment to explain about everything you see here. First off, Roshy is amazing and puts everything in a value pack so that all you have to do is rez the box and move on… BUT just in case you were wondering… you can unlink the items and move them around how you want them. In the photo above, I rezzed out the value box (click here for marketplace link) and they all appear in a nice little row. I am a messy person and I tend to like things everywhere, so I decided to unlink them and move them around how I wanted. These are all modify and copy items. When you unlink the items, the plants are together, the sign is its own item, and the shelve is a single item. If you want to move the whole shelf as one unit you will need to get into your edit screen on say the shelves and then hold down SHIFT and then click the other items you want to move together. You may laugh that I am telling you this but sadly enough I just discovered this not too long ago (insert your laughter here). Also on the ground, I have rezzed out some of the single pots which you can purchase individually if you would like (marketplace link). I really encourage you to explore the in world store as well as the marketplace store because the options are really endless. All of the plants you see in this photo including the shelves and signs all add up to a low land impact of 15! That is a small amount of LI for something that takes up a nice bit of space. Both of which are important to me! 🙂

THE TOLKIEN FESTIVAL

4.29.14.2

Ladies and Gentleman… I present to you…. the TOLKIEN FESTIVAL!!! Who doesn’t love a shopping festival? There are several themes to this fair so there are many different types of items that can be found around. I was very impressed at the wide range of products listed, but I was even more impressed with RVi Design. They had to put up two shops just to fit the wide variety of items that they are bringing to the fair. Some are even pre releases that aren’t available in store yet like this garden table set you see above. The detailing is divine and this is a must have for any spring and summer garden you are planning. These products are all new mesh as well. Another fun thing for festivals is the set up. You will see all kinds of amazing stores and designs here. Below, I took a photo of one of the RVi Design stores. The journey up to the top of the tower allows you to get a grand view of the festival from up high. Please come take a look before the festival is over! It opened up on April 26th and will last until May 11th, so there is plenty of time left to get your shopping in! TOOTLES

Arabian Nights

arabian night

Another amazing design brought to you by RVi Design! A new release called Arabian Nights Gazebo is now available in store. This is actually 3 products in one. You can purchase the set as a whole like this you see in my photo… OR… you can purchase just the sitting area part or you can even go as small as to just purchase the sitting pillow. The pillow and sitting area are mesh but the gazebo is not. I absolutely loved the vibrant colors and the Arabian feel this gazebo brings. Currently if you wear your group tag this set is going to be 50% off while it lasts in the New Release area! You never know when something may come in and it will no longer be for sale so you need to go and check it out soon! TOOTLES

Dead End

crypt1

I am thrilled beyond belief… I have been waiting for this release for a long time and I am so excited to be able to share this with you. RVi Design has released the new Dead End Sanctuary which is a mesh release. I am enchanted by all things spooky and really… This makes me feel like I am back at Halloween. This will definitely be part of my design this year but before that, I at least wanted to introduce you to this amazing creation. Roshy really outdid herself. This product is copy and modify so you can change just about everything about it. It comes with a coffin that opens and closes when you touch it, a pose within the coffin itself, sound effects with the crow on the tree when it is touched, gates that open and close to the touch or when you run into it (my preference), and a black marble gate with torches that are time activated with flames. The scripts are no modifiable but if you want you can replace them with your own, add more animations and customize the design. I also took this opportunity to show you something else which I have recently obtained and am addicted to now… My shoes are the new release from *Reign called Monarch Heels. I purchased them in black but there are all kinds of colors and are an add on for the slink high feet. You can find these at The Big Show if you would like to grab a pair for yourself. Again, if you have any questions please feel free to ask in world! And remember that the Dead End Sanctuary is also 50% off for group members of RVi Design while it is still a new release so DONT WAIT!!!!

Jelly Bean Hunt Preview 2

I have spent the last few days getting my home ready for spring. One of my favorite things is the colorful gardens throughout SL and making my home look that way is a major goal for me. I am not amazing at it, but I have fun doing it. I figured why not help myself out by doing the Jelly Bean Hunt. Easter is fast approaching and there are so many amazing items up for grabs. Instead of hunting for Easter eggs, hunt for items you can use to decorate your place. Welcome spring with open arms and let it fill up your SL. Your RL may not be all sunshine… heck its still freezing where I live… but I always feel warmer when I have a nice place to relax in SL.

Going to start with another list! I know how much you love these but it just seems easier if I do them for the hunts… I like to be able to at least add the hints. You can go to the I & R Fun with Hunts blog and get the links to each store there. So here we go again…

  • Window Planters- StoraxTree: Thatched Spring Planter C ; Hint- look near hunt poster
  • Egg decor- Designs by Sebastian: Easter gift silver ; Hint – Baskets and eggs here and there, near one lies a a bean so fair

To complete my look at my home… I think every lovely garden and home should have some sort of entrance. I just had to show off my new gate, fence, and planter from RVi Design. This stunning set is mesh and really sets off any home with a little extra flair. I wanted to give you a few details… You can purchase the gate and planters separate BUT you can also purchase this as a full set together. I was talking to Roshy and of course she was giving me fabulous ideas with what to do with it all. You can even make a secret garden feel by just putting the gate with a shrubbery wall which brings me back to the movie Secret Garden, but that is for another day! The planters I love because I have set them up around my home, not just on the fence! Currently these are a brand new release at her store and if you are a group member, you get 50% off!!!! She takes care of us all! They won’t be there very long so don’t wait. She releases new items all the time thank goodness. 🙂

Now that I have shown you a ton of things… your turn to be on the hunt and my turn to relax in my new spring garden! Please if you have any questions about any of the items that I blog, please feel free to IM me in world at Tessagrace51! TOOTLES

Medieval Fantasy Fair 3

mff3

I know, I am really late on letting everyone know about this fair… I am not sure if you have heard but the Medieval Fantasy Fair 3 has been going on since March 22nd and you have until the 30th of March to get in and grab your goodies. The theme this year is Dark Bloody Tales and you can tell by the decor. It is a very dark and interesting place. If you don’t go to purchase, at least go to see the designs around the sim. I was blown away.

mff3.2.

RVi Design is taking part in this blood thirsty fair and everything is for sale. Roshy has released a ton of new items here which you do not need to miss. Everything in the store is for sale… including the curtains and the coffin in the center if you were thinking of an alternative to your bed.

mff3.3.

One of these items is the new Immortal Crypt. I have been “dying” (pun so intended) for this release and have been watching her build this for a while now. She will tell you I am first in line for this item!!!! It is a mesh build, so if you are looking for something to add to your sim or home then this is the item. For me personally, I want to use this as a prop. I like to do darker photos sometimes and I look forward to using this in blogs to come. Did I mention detail? You have to see it to believe it! You can purchase the crypt on the opposite side of the sim where she has it set up so you can actually walk around it. Hope you make it in time to get all the goodies and sight see 🙂 TOOTLES
