The Hemingway Collection by Clutter

I’ve not blogged about Clutter for a while, Kat Alderson’s emporium of fabulous furnishings and knick knacks based at Wind River Territory, but I had to this week. She’s released an awesome, and astonishingly cheap, range of African inspired furnishings for your home and you simply MUST check them out.

The Hemingway Collection (Trust Kat to come up with a literary inspired name!) is just what you need if you want to add a touch of African spice to your abode. There’s a multitude of pieces available, from these glorious wing back chairs to stools based on Djembe drums, vases, wall art and a lovely screen. There’s also a fantastic pavillion which I seriously recommend if you’re intending on some outdoor dining with your Second Life chums.

I love Kats bits and bobs, I really do. I also love her approach to retail, these pieces are priced so even those on a seriously tight Linden budget don’t need to miss out, and above all else the textures that she applies are just perfect. The great thing about this collection is that it’s texture change; there are a number of animal prints available to select from. I particularly like the Zebra, Giraffe and the Tiger styles!

I’ve used these pieces to decorate my home to great success. This is just fabulous work, great value for money and really looks the part. I’ve known Kat a while now and it is so satisfying to see the creations that she rolls out on a near-weekly basis. She’s come a long way from her Third Life Interior and Alderson & Charron days and I’m really excited to see what else she has in store for us all!

You need to get your skates on if you want to buy these pieces, because The Hemingway Collection is split into various components and is featured in a multitude of different sale events (but fortunately all the pieces are in the same location, phew!)

The Hemingway Collection Part 1 is part of the TOSL (‘Taste Of Second Life’) event and is a pavillion with fire bowl, table, vase and seating and is just fabulous value for money at L$100

The Hemingway Collection Part 2 is part of ‘Sixty Linden Weekends’ event and includes some funky drum stools, a folding screen and vase and costs just L$60 (The screen is to die for, so simple and yet so fine!)

The Hemingway Collection Part 3 includes the wing back chairs, featuring 5 texture change options and 15 sits each come with a chest and plant and is part of the ‘La Venta eventa’ running from June 10-12.  These items cost L$100 (Note: the chair poses are GREAT!)

The Hemingway Collection Part 4 includes the two seater bench, wall art and a torch planter- this is part of the Super Bargain Saturday event and costs a mere L$60.

All these items are at the main store in Wind River Territory as you walk in.  There’s a pavillion outside so that you can give it a test-drive before you buy. CLICK HERE to TP directly to the goodies!

Gratuitous self-pluggage..Kittygasm ahoy!

Sometimes you read something that makes you go all giddy and grin like a loon, much to everyone’s annoyance. That’s been the story of my day so far.

l’m especially giddy today, in fact I’m smiling like a Cheshire cat on acid as we speak! Why I hear you ask? Well, Kat Alderson (who runs Third Life Interiors which I reviewed previously and keep visiting because it’s chuffing wonderful) mentioned to me that her ‘Stackpole Collection’ is named after a rather esteemed author, Michael A Stackpole.

Now, if you aren’t familiar with the name then you may be familiar with some of his work, for Michael is an especially prolific writer. Reading his list of works is like looking through a bunch of old photographs and spotting old forgotten friends in the background..the guy is a veritable genius. I’m especially impressed by his work with Dark Horse Comics. Comic book geekery is something that I’ve gotten into only recently but I’m a signed up member of that particular club now, thanks to my beloved Jez.

For someone who only writes as a hobby any compliment is always well received, but when it comes from a published, award-winning, New York Times best-selling author it’s like winning an Olympic gold a squillion times over….

So imagine how I felt when I read THIS

Can you see why my chops are aching from smiling?

*GRIN* I’m going to be unbearable after this, you do realise that don’t you?

Kitty Quicky: Third Life Interiors

…are going to be getting a severe blogging by me at some point this week. Kat Alderson ( I had a PE teacher called Miss Alderson, but I really don’t think it’s her) has sent me a plethora of prim happiness for me to review, and at the moment I’m up to my neck in chairs, furniture and assorted wonderfulness. What I have seen so far has left me seriously impressed, so I’m going to take my time and carefully inspect the nicies that she’s sent me before I write my review, but I will tell you that I’m utterly besotted with the chairs. They are *yummo* with excellent finishing to boot. I’m really excited about ‘Third Life Interiors’ and I’m sure you will be too….watch this space!
