Vintage Carson…

The ladies on the blog like to call me vintage, so I’ll bow to their wishes and live a “vintage” life. And an easy way to furnish your Victorian home is follow the hunt path on the Steam XII Hunt. I was able to decorate my living space for FREE by just finding the hunt items. I was also lucky enough to find an outfit (or two) along the way. Find your way to Cutie Larks and the Endymion Outfit can be yours for FREE. Don’t worry ladies, there’s a female gift there for you also! I borrowed the shoes from the Columbiad Engineer Outfit from Sparrow by Design that I showed [HERE] to complete the look.

To the Moon…

But today’s post isn’t about the clothing. I want to show you some of the wonderful and unique items for your house (if you live in the 1890’s) that can be found for FREE on the Steam XII Hunt. The hunt prize at Simply Shelby is the Reclaimed Ash Bookcase – Jules Verne Edition. It’s a beautifully crafted shelving unit with all kinds of Verneian memorabilia mixed in. The Steamer Trunk Coffee Table can be found at Casa de Bebe. The trunk include sit poses and makes a great addition it your next expedition to the unknown. Head down to Wood Works to find the Hurricane Lamp and Table. The Red Velvet Victorian Chaise is the hunt prize from Park Place Home Decor. This chair comes with sits and standing poses and made my morning coffee too! Also included in that gift are Plans for Trip to the Moon. Now if  only had a rocket to get me there. I bet I can find one somewhere on the hunt…

Who can get your attention
With a booming voice?
Or quiet the room
With a soft shush?
The Librarian

Who can find that particular book?
You know…
The one with that guy…
Doing that thing…
With the yellow cover?
The Librarian

Who can solve your technology issues
By saying…
Have you tried…
Turning it off
And on again?
The Librarian

Who would much rather
Be left alone
To read the books
He will never have the time
To read.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Don’t pinch me, I’m wearing green… thanks to some fabulous finds courtesy of the Cart Wash Sale and a fun group gift! Don’t worry, I’ll show you where to find the goods too!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My fun shamrock inspired smock is sexy but also practical… and it’s only 10L! It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and you can pick it up at the cart wash from Ayva’s Attic. Don’t worry! There were several gorgeous styles that were for after the green day as well, including a daisy print dress I fell in love with. You should totally check this cart out, even if you’re not into green!

And my Brolly! OH it stole my heart! But HURRY! I think it is a TODAY ONLY giftie from JINX Fantasy store! So don’t delay! Get there ASAP and pick up this gorgeous giftie! It is FREE with your Group membership (which is only 5 tiny Linden to join). When you don your group tag and pick up the Jiggly Paddy Brolly, you will find two different Brolly’s in the Umbrella box… one will work with your AO and is just holdable to keep off the rain (or sun). The other… is jiggly! Just turn off your AO and your avi will do a jig which is absolutely fun as can be! You’ll just have to see for yourself. I’m not giving away the surprise!

Are you loving my rooftop furniture? These too can be yours if you stop by the Cart Wash Sale! I picked these up to add a bit of flair to my rooftop and really love them. Both are 10L offerings from Wood Works. The Grape Leaf Bench comes with an assortment of both male and female poses and offers props to go with them as well, such as drinks, books to read, and flowers to hold, and you get the bonus plant to the side as well. The bench is a mere 5 prims and the plant is only 2 prims, making these both really nicely prim conscious and you get both in the same box for you 10L!

I also am showing you Wood Works Shamrock Cushion, which is only 2 prims and 10L at the Cart Wash Sale. I love the casual sits it offers and it would be great for tossing out if you’re having friends over.

That’s it for now… enjoy the green day!
