I am burning the midnight oil, so to speak, tonight to make sure I have shown off all of the amazing creations available at the The Home and Garden Expo, which ends in just over 24 hours! You have until midnight tomorrow to head over to this fantastic event, where you can feel good about doing a little home and garden shopping because with every purchase of donation items you are giving to the American Cancer Society! What could be a better reason? The Expo has officially raised almost 4 million Linden and they are hoping to make that incredible mark by the end of the expo, so hit those kiosks while out shopping and get us to that final goal. I have spent evening creating a beautiful background oasis, with every piece, other than a couple trees coming from The Home and Garden Expo. I think it’s important to be able to relax when at home, whether in your favorite corner in your home, or if you are like me, I love being outdoors, whether in Second Life or in real life, meaning anywhere I reside you will find a hidden oasis.
Potomac Signature Homes has several incredible releases for the event including the Brookside Home, not pictured, that comes with a curving, stone path which accompanied The Wishing Well release, also from Potomac, quite well. I love trees, and Dixie Dandelion has made my heart quite happy with their Spring Tree Grouping release for the event that come with and without daisies; and they made the perfect backdrop for my oasis. Over in the gacha area at The Home and Garden Expo you will find a gacha from Enigma Designs for their Seasons Tree release, with the RARE having all the seasons. Each one is gorgeous in its own right, so make sure to stop by if you are looking for great landscaping pieces for your home or photo sim. What backyard oasis would be complete without a sparkling pool and deck?
Dragons are Too Seldom, Inc., otherwise known as DATSI Mesh has some amazing releases at the event bu I have fallen in love with this pool with deck, hot tub and chair, leaving enough room to add your own patio decor items as well. DATSI has several pool chairs, inflatable toys and chairs to accompany your pool, and an inflatable kiddy pool too, making this the penultimate family backyard playground! And if you are planning on doing any entertaining, then check out the magnificent releases from beYou World, who also happen to be a sponsor of The Home and Garden Expo.
beYou World has two patio tables available at the event, one is square and the other is round, offering you two different choice for your backyard oasis. I loved the contrasting fabric design and dark metal of the Seabreeze set and thought it looked gorgeous with beYou’s Freesia Dessert Plater/Plate and Chockberry Cake collection also exclusively available at the event. Once you have decorated your new retreat, invite some friends over for a pool party and enjoy your oasis in the woods.
