Home & Garden Expo is coming to a close

Today is the last day for the Home & Garden Expo so if you haven't had the opportunity to visit any of the 9 sims, you better spend the day doing just that! 96 vendors over 9 sims, and a lot of items to item, seen below, is the Dreaming Cottage and it comes exactly as you see it below. I have added nothing to this so that you can see what is included.

Yes, even the landscaping is included and it is all included in a dome shape with a foundation (similar to a snowglobe). Once you rez it you are good to go!

Two levels with a ladder to get you up and down, mirror, fireplace, wall art, books, etc .....all included.

Everything you need all right here in one awesome package! It's available from Koko Ashworth Homestore and you can click here to visit their setup on the Home and Garden sim.

No, that's not a sex swing......

Did that get your attention? (lol) Well, I have had several questions regarding one item in this blog post so I thought why not make my reply the title.

When I first saw all the items for bloggers that are available at the Home & Garden Expo, I was totally overwhelmed thinking to myself, "How am I going to blog on all these magnificent pieces?" I mean come on 96 designers on 9 sims, all focused on homes and home decor!! That's is a LOT to take in. However, as I unpacked and arranged and saw the pieces, I became more relaxed and actually inspired!

This is just one post so far, so stay tuned for more....and I had over 10 photos for this blog post but decided to only put 6 here. The rest of the photos are posted on my FLICKR so  that this post isn't overwhelmed.

The first set of photos that I took are from the outside of the home focusing on the outdoor items that you can find at the Expo. I was also playing around with windlight settings and for this set I used the Jax Muted Sunset and the Jax Pretty Sunset.

In the above photos you can find:

The Dreamers Home -- Thaino Designs
*leaf* lampstand A / Autumn -- Dreamscapes Art Gallery & Decor
*leaf* lampstand/Autumn (they are outside the gates and have a stand)
Garden Fence - JoHaDez
Thaino Pumpkin Flower Bed  -- Thaino Designs
Pumpkin Seat - Thaino Designs
Standing Pumpkin Decor - Thaino Designs
Pumpkin Hanging Baskets - Thaino Designs

All of the items are highly detailed and best of all LOW PRIM! I love it when items are well made, quality textures and then are low prim, it's just the icing on the cake! Now let's move inside this wonderful home...

See the swing above is just a normal one person swing, not a sex swing lol. The items above are soooo awesome, high quality textures, low prim mesh, I just can't say enough.

Here is the area that I made for the bedroom, this home is kind of sectioned off into three portions. So, I decided to make it the living room, bedroom and an office. I love all the windows and the simplicity of design. If you look really close you will see the gorgeous details on the walls at the bottom.

Home & Garden Expo 2014

The Home & Garden Expo 2014
September 16 - 28

For the next couple of weeks, I will be posting several items and setups from the Home & Garden Expo, like the setup below.

This set is from Apple Fall and I happen to love the way this is set up....from the seamstress mannequins in the corner to the hanging lamps in the bedroom display. Not to mention the house that holds it all! When I first arrived at this display, it as love at first site for the house and YES! it is for sale at a wonderful price!

The vintage tea room is straight out from a home decor magazine, and the quality of the items just takes my breath away. You can find several items for sale at the H&G Expo, but there are also items that benefit Relay for Life, so be sure to head over and visit ALL the wonderful merchants (96!!!) on all of the NINE sims.

Here is where you will find a list of all the merchants and the sims that they are located on:

Be sure to stop by before it's too late, help support Relay for Life and these wonderful merchants!
