All that glitters . . .


Sometimes you see something
and it makes you remember an event or place or thing.
Sometimes seeing something triggers 
an idea that you must act upon.


This set started out as a simple set of mirrors, but 
sometimes things don't go as they are planned. 
Reflections are not just on surfaces, one must sometimes 
delve deeper and review experiences to move forward.
Sometimes others experiences mirror our own.

I was stalled. 
Heidi at Exotic Elements was experiencing the same thing.
She had a set that wasn't quite moving forward for her.
Seeing what she had done inspired me to move forward.
My choices were a reflection of what she was doing
and where I have been.


We both like mixing things up a bit. 
Soft and rough, 
old and new,
modern and classical. 
Visually rich and textured environments.

Today I have for you 13 new items.
Starting with the obvious: four mirrors.
One leaning and one wall 'dome' mirror, a round beveled mirror, a distressed Venetian mirror,
An acrylic console with 22 slots, 3 dining chair/stools, a shallow bowl with 5 slots, a hunk of quartz,
A "C"-table with 19 slots, the shallow bowl for the wall too, and a floor lamp
A few notes about this set:
The plate is the same for the table as it is the wall.
It has five set styles as well as 2 CASt-able ones in two different scales as pictured. Also - if you want it
less shiny, change the first pattern to something you know is flat. Currently it is set to porcelain. 

The first style is just like the one in my living room.
The "C" table is set up that it does not need a cheat to place it as it should be placed:
under a piece of furniture. This however also allows it to move right through a piece of furniture. 
The RL design of this table is sort of like a TV tray - it's intended to 
roll under the sofa and act as a snack table . . . 
that's the reason for the way it was coded. Okay? OKAY! Not a mistake - swear to ghaaad.

The floor lamp is 1310 polys - a little high, but deal or ditch it. You won't hurt my feelings.
Just a little note about the lamp - I have this lamp in my living room in real life, so while it is odd, it actually exists.

Phew! Okay - on with the photos!
This is a little different than normal.
Today I am showing you a living/dining room set up from many angles:

(because these photos are sooo Exotic Elements/b5Studio CC heavy, I am linking others objects by the photo)

January 10, 2015 - The Chess Set chairs and Antique Floor Lamp have been converted to TS2 by m0xxa - you can find them here!

Who knew you could do two complete rooms with mostly Exotic Elements and b5Studio stuff?
What? You did? Aw - bless you. Now donate ;)

A big ol' THANK YOU  to CycloneSue who's beautiful distressed mirror set aided me greatly 
in the settings for the venetian mirror as well as the hunk'o'quartz.

  7. Thank you everyone - this set was an absolute surprise to me - started in one direction and ended up in a completely different direction. Oddly organic and really I have Heidi to thank for the 'reboot' - I was ready to scrap the Venetian mirror and start on something entirely different. Seeing her renewed enthusiasm for her set really inspired me to set the mirror idea aside and try something completely different. Heidi is my muse :) Oh - the other big surprise for me was the whirlwind turn-around haha - it's not usually the case to have two big sets one right after the other.

    Thanks again everyone - really, it means a lot that you like my work :) Oh - I am going to be posting a few notes on the set on my side blog (link above 'followers') in just a bit - like posting a picture of the real lamp!
