The Jazz Band

The Jazz Band

One of my most unusual and unexpected finds at Home and Garden Expo was The Jazz Band by Artemis Corner.

If you have a spot, this is SO MUCH FUN!   I put mine in Smith's bar up in the city.

The band weighs in at 33 land impact with plenty of details.

My attire hales from Cosmopolitan's new round. The JF Design "Lisa" Mini Dress comes in a variety of colors including some pretty pastels, but I needed to coordinate with the band of course, so I picked red. Maitreya and Belleza fits. Panties are included (whew).

My hair is a brand new release from eXxEsS, espresso and I am guessing it will end up being a favorite among favorites (yes, I have many).

MEVA has another bound to be a favorite release in the Dee Set at Whimsical. It comes in either silver or gold and includes some lovely earrings in the set.

A Natural Abode 1

Shotgun house: a narrow rectangular domestic residence, usually no more than about 12 feet (3.5 m) wide, with rooms arranged one behind the other and doors at each end of the house.

I grew up in a shotgun house, my grandmother's beach abode in a once small town which is now part of a megalopolis. One thing I like about this style of home is the absence of halls. Such a waste of space - halls :D.

The new by Dorian Lazy Dayx Cottage (I am thinking that might really be an "s" instead of an x but hey, I am a precise reporter) is definitely one of the the most well executed builds I have seen in awhile. It is a new release for RFL Home and Garden Expo.

Happily  wider than that 3.5 meter real life average, you will need at least 36 x 15 meters of space for this beauty. Two big rooms at each end with outdoor porches and a side entry stairs make up the main area of the home. A small room with its own "tip out" area is perhaps meant to be a bathroom, but could also become a nursery, a sewing room, a library -- the choice is yours.

Interior walls are cheery pastels but you can tint to accommodate your preferences.

A Natural Abode 2

My summery dress hales from O V H at Tres Chic. The Gisela Dress comes in various mini hud packs and in fits for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink as well as legacy fitted mesh.

AND -- there is a version of this dress in fun white and gold stripe as a gift, so don't miss picking that up. This is a perfect dress for our warm months to come.

Also at Tres Chic, this =DeLa*= Fitted Mesh Hair "Maree", a casual and feminine style.

My top pose with cute little squirrel is from Luane's World as a Tres Chic birthday gift.

A specialty item that you might miss -- after all it is small and notw abode sized -- is the animated fern from The Mesh Cloud on Hope 2. A hud let's you control wind movement.

This is a RFL donation item so easy to find.

Still working hard, new releases abound from 22769 -- both at popular venues and at the shop.

These are a two of my favorites, both from sets.

The 22769 - Colonial Lounge Bench comes with white -- easy to tint -- fabric. A couple of clicks and this beautifully textured seating area echoed the dark shades of my styling. Find it at the main store as part of The Challenge for Builders. Singles and couples animations are available.

A big collection of realistic plants and planters await you at The Liaison Collaborative. My favorite is the hanging plant on the stand -- which happily coordinates woodwise with the lounge bench.

You have until Saturday evening to zip over to Cosmopolitan where you can purchase this form fitting club dress from Kaithleen's.  The Metal Lined Mini Dress fits Belleza, Maitreya and Slink. Colors abound, including a choice of metals.

The cute little bow garter is a gift from .::Supernatural::. at Tres Chic where you can pick up lots of lovely gifts in celebration of the second birthday.  The Shelby Garter comes in both silver and gold metal styles.

If mid-lengths hairs are in short supply in your inventory (and they are in mine) then you will definitely want to try out this new hair from Vanity Hair at Tres Chic.  Lots of pretty colors of course.

Another Tres Chic present that I love is this back tattoo from Nanikia!   Sometimes "simple" can be "smashing"!
