Flights of Fancy – New Stuff!!!

So I’m on a tear with building, and literally the only thing slowing me down is the fact that I have to texture and package everything!!! Very frustrating! But I love my new stuff (I am invariably in ‘love’ with a new piece, then it fades and a new love begins, tee hee). This week I’m releasing 3 new sets. First off, Moon Shines, a lovely long beaded chain with a diamond moon centerpiece stone. Secondly, a bit of vintage whimsey, Spheres in Peridot, a circle of beads, that are almost a choker and tie in the back with a ribbon, they come with a perfect compliment – semi precious peridot stud earrings. Last but not least – Flights of Fancy. A delicate scroll work set necklace and earrings that ends up by being draped over the back. All the excuse I may need to dress up like a fairy haha! Stop by the store and take a look, and don’t forget, there’s a GREAT SALE on discontinued items! Here’ a teleport slurl directly to the store.

Just a bit of vintagey goodness

I’ve been doing a bit of building – in full build mode, not so much full packaging and retexturing mode sadly. I usually have to force myself to do this! Oh full shopping mode too. So many sales lately, including my own sale, still going on! There was a 24 or 48 hour sale at Gypsy Soul , so went down there and picked up the cutest dress! Visited a new designers pose shop, Pffiou!, and picked up some really cute new poses at an unbelieveably low price! I lurve the crouched down one, so much that I ignored the glitch pants showing…. Finished this off with the lovely Victoria hair from Truth (woah! new build, new store, pretty awesome), which was a Bushfire Appeal special. And finished it off with more new skin from Curio. Nothin but love there, seriously. I had this idea for a necklaces that would have silver beads tied in the back with a black silk bow. I decided the earrings with big balls hanging from them was not going to cut it (thankfully I had agreement on this decision from my plurk buddies)! So I made these adorable peridot stud earrings. I love peridot, and I HAVE these earrings in RL, a vintage pair – peridot is a semi-precious stone, dontchaknow. I think they work well as a set, and I put a touch of the peridot in the ribbon ties of the necklace! I’ll have this out in the store hopefully over the weekend.

Just saying

I’m feeling prolific. Like I could make a gadzillion thingies. After the drought of the last few weeks this is a welcome change of perspective. I mades this new set and put on this outfit to go with it! Right now I’m calling it Moon Shines, but this could change ;-). The ETD lynne II style, one of my all time favorites for its delicate appearance. Again, the new curio skins, which with 48 skins in a fatpack, is like the gift that keeps on giving! If you’ve not hit the Sn@tch sale, you’re missing out! Anywho, put this outfit together. New set will probably be released sometime this weekend.

Totally screwing around

Okay, I have absolutely no point to this outfit, other than I like it, and woot I get to show off my new curio skin. Bah-u-teef-full. I was reading Dove Swansons insightful review of the skins and decided that the reason I do love them is for the slight imperfections. The skin gives my av the look of a real person! I also chose the breezy cause I thought the lovely face was too sad, which is not my normal mood. Outfit credits are below the pic. I think it’s official, my favorite skins are basically curio and chai. I would like to have a couple of other sets from other designers – but I’m an all or nothing kind of girl and if I can’t afford the fatpack I simply wait!

SAH-ALEEE! erm sale.

I’m having a wee bit of a sale. I’ve marked down a bunch of sets and put them out on sale racks – there are items as low as $10L, singles sets for $25L and fatpacks for $50L. These are items I’m discontinuing, so you may wish to pick them up. As usual, I’ve no idea how long I’ll keep it out, probably till I think I need the space or I earn enough bucks to buy the fatpack of new Curio skins haha!. Here’s a link directly to the sale racks! Speaking of sales, my new clothes folder is simply bulging. I picked up this outfit at the Sn@tch sale. I love this outfit from the low waisted skirt with leggings to the spangly top. It’s got a fancy but casual feel to it, I’ve been wearing it for a couple of days with none of my friends saying, gee, you’re a wee bit overdressed LOL. I paired it with my new set, a whole lot of tiny prims that hit’s prim link limits (/me hates prim link limits), the Sparkling Waters’ set. Full outfit credits are below the picture.

Sparkling Waters at Dark Mouse Jewelry

Okay lot’s of newness this week. Two new jewelry sets and bracelets with a bit of a twist. I have a new set that I personally just love! I’ve named it, Time Passes, and it’s a cute little hourglass (the sand inside is moving). As with most of my stuff, it comes in silver, copper and gold. The other set is called Sparkling Waters, and started as an experiment in torturing prims and ended up as a truly gorgeous piece. Lastly I made a really chunky set of bracelets that can each be worn separately or stacked, which makes for some versatile bracelets. They come with a HUGE pair of hoop earrings UMMMM really HUGE. These bracelets and earrings say DRAMA! I hope you like these new sets! They can be purchased at my store in Taber. Use this link to teleport directly to the store!

What? Buried treasure? Where?

Hello all! I’ve been a little absent from the recent series of hunts – mainly because I can’t pull together nice stuff for so many hunts so quickly and I really like small focused hunts that draw attention to special places or areas. I’m participating in a hunt at Tuli’s Journey sim, and the hunt item I have placed out is really special, so you’ll want to head over there! I love Tuli’s sim, not just because it features her lovely skins and talents, but because it is a well done sim that feels homey and comfortable. The layout is optimum for shopping at a leisurely pace. If you hate hunts and want the item, stop by the Dark Mouse Main Store in a couple of days, it will be be featured in my new releases.

Time’s a wastin.

So while I sit here and try fruitlessly to get into Maitreya, I thought I should do a post! I am feeling a bit more creative, and have a bunch of stuff in the works – to be released soon! I was thrilled about the sale at Dutch Touch and hurried right over to grab a store card woot! I love, love, love this outfit. What a great skirt and the leggings have just the right amount of sheen to them. This is totally casual funky and required pretty much zilch work on my part….this whole thing comes as a set! In a case of freebies working, I picked up the free and cute pink linen flats from Callie Cline, and it encouraged me to get another pair a full price – simply adorable AND versatile. The hair from Truth is messy and looks like I just pulled it up. I chose the doe skin from Chai cause I love the cateye makeup and just the clean look to it. I added my own jewelry (erm, of course) a new piece I’m working on, and will release sometime this week! It’s a cool hourglass on a chain….my new time passes set.

Just hanging out.

Okay, shopping till I drop here – I love newness. I got a notice earlier from both the Sprawl and Tousled groups and well newness that must be blogged!!! This awesome hoodie hair is a collaboration between Haedon Quinn and Pushbutton Skolnick and woah! I’ve been waiting for new releases from Tousled and YAY! I love hoodies to begin and this is right up my alley. The outfit gave me the opportunity to pull out my Redgrave boots that I’ve not blogged as of yet! I’m going for a Kate Hudson kind of look, so I pulled out my tights from Dernier Cri and paired them with another pair with scrunchy tops I grabbed on the cheap at Runo Runo. I dropped by Celestial Studios and found the perfect leopard print handbag that seemed to round the whole thing out nicely. The detail and textures on the bag are well, awesome. Jewelry is my own, Mussed Up set!. Outfit credits and slurls are after the picture.
