The Expo wraps up tomorrow, so be sure you get there soon!! Four sims of goodness to explore, live DJs and performers throughout the day, and tons of awesome auction and raffle prizes! Remember, too, that this is all for Relay For Life - all purchases of items displayed in RFL vendors go 100% to Relay, as well as the proceeds from the auctions and raffles. There is no better reason to spend your Lindens! :)
I finally finished my exploring last night...so much to see! I also ran into Krissy Muggleston, which was a nice surprise. :) Be sure to check out her blog KrissyLately - it's in my blogroll! And now...on to the finds!
A Take On Simplicity by Felicity Sneerwell: I met Felicity through our mutual friend, Stormy McCallister (Another Man's Treasure), but this was my first opportunity to check out her work. Nice, simple designs, fairly low on prims and still full on style. I like her Karma Outdoor Set - again, really simple, but a great staple for any modern patio...and something about the cushion texture speaks to me. It's got a sort of buttery leather look to it - I like it.
Felicity also has the Karma Bathroom Suite - I really like the mix of stone and wood, and the way she's connected the tub and shower with the shared stone mount is really clever.
Ambiance Furniture by Desiree Bisiani: the Aphrodite Bathroom is very romantic, without being too froofy (it's a word). There are several more pieces to the set, I just really like the tub vignette. The towel rack is gorgeous, and I love the curves on the candle holders. Very nice!
Elements in Design by Gwen Carillon - another new designer to me. Gwen has several furniture sets on display, as well - it's her Gossip Girl Cafe that caught my eye. Now, I don't watch the show, so I can't comment on authenticity -- but it sure is cute. :) Very warm and cozy interior, and it's a just-right size. This would be adorable nestled in a city block or in a quiet village neighborhood.
The Loft by Colleen Desmoulin & -RC- Cluster by Redd Columbia - favorites of mine, of course. :) For the Expo, Colleen has the Speyside Hutch available in green, a color exclusive to the Expo, and all proceeds for RFL. Redd has included her Craft Bag as a RFL item - and it's precious! I had to pick one up for me. It's full of pens, pencils, markers, notebooks, scissors...everything I need to spontaneously wreak havoc. :)
Scarlet Creative by Charlotte Bartlett: Charlotte has one of her amazing houses on display, and it's also her RFL item. What I fell in love with is her Make Me A Star object -- rez it (it's invisible), and tada - glowy stars circle all around. I grabbed one to add to the fairy garden. I also really love her packaging - clear glass boxes? Yes, please!
[ba] by Barnesworth Anubis: and finally, another of my all-time favorites. :) Barnes has a few of his houses on display, all yummy and a required walk-thru. For his RFL item, he's got the Square Modern Gazebo - great piece for the beach, a zen garden, even a quiet forest hideaway. Possibilities are endless!
Ta da! That concludes my Home Expo 2009 finds. Be sure to get over there today or tomorrow -- I've only shown you a small percentage of what's there, you've got to get out and see the rest! Enjoy!
