KITTY QUICKY: Even MORE ‘Follow Us’ Fabness!

Image

This is rather smashing, don’t ya think? Even more fabness is on the way from the ‘Follow us!’ stable that I mentioned in my previous post.  I’m loving this couch. Trust me, it’s extremely cosy, even though it’s constructed from pallets, hence the name, ‘Couch Pallet’.

This is a perfect snuggle spot for you and your beloved, especially with Valentine’s Day on the horizon, and will fill that empty corner in your home a treat.  It would even look funky outside, and it’s brought bang up to date with the pile of books, a fan and the ipad at the foot of the couch, so when you’re not smooching you have other stuff and things to do.  Well done to the creator, Laurent83 Waco!

I think what I like most about this is that the couch is quite simple really in presentation, but that’s probably why it works so well. I’d even dare suggest that this isn’t just shabby chic, but will appeal to the grunge and even Neko aficionados. There’s just something about it that means it will appeal to most genres and styles of home. What are even better are the poses. There are five singles poses and ten, yes TEN couples poses to be enjoyed, simply by clicking the cushion.  (Note I’m demonstrating the singles poses..forever alone Kitty)

The ‘Couch Pallet’ is really neat and well worth the bargain price of L$99 which it will be set to for a week. (That said, when it goes back up to full price it will still be under L$200, so it’s hardly a mahossive bank buster)

Oh, and can you see the frames and coat rack, with brolly and coat and a camera in the background? (look really closely and you can see the love hearts and twine décor on the middle frame: )

Because these items are soon-to-be-released you had really better keep a close and on ‘Follow Us’ on the Marketplace hadn’t you?

In fact, you’d better follow them! (Oh dear, I’ll get me coat!)

(And yes I know I still have my glass in my hand from earlier, what can I say except I’m a total lush..<hic!>)

Kitty is most amused by ‘Amuse’ and happy to ‘Follow Us’

One of the things I LOVE about SL is the quirkiness. There’s originality to be found in-world, along with humour, and that element of fun and eccentricity that a lot of similar virtual environments just can’t provide. It’s captivating.  I especially adore the little things; the decorations, the ornaments, the frippery that make a virtual house a home. So I was investigating the Marketplace for bits and bobs when I came across the most amazing bottles of wine for sale.

They’re available from a store called ‘Amuse’, created by Amuse Bouche, and I must be honest, I laughed like a drain when I saw them. After all, how many of us liken white wine to cat’s piss? Well, there’s a wine for that courtesy of his store, ‘Amuse’! Even better, click on the bottle and you’ll get a glass! (Incidentally the glasses for each wine are great, some have animated bubbles!)

These bottles are perfect for the home or bar.  The labels are just brilliant, perfectly rendered and I want MORE of them. They’re a real bargain at L$25 each too. Admittedly, not copy, but they’re mesh and with a land impact of just one they’re a home essential.

I’ve got three bottles on the go at the mo, as you can see from the picture. What can I say, I’m a lush. I’ve got the aforementioned ‘Cat’s Piss’ (lovely fragrant bouquet that one!) I also have a bottle of ‘Witches Brew’ (Well, what do you expect? It is me after all!) And for after a hard day at work, what could be more relaxing than a bottle of ‘Shit Creek’?  There are sixteen bottles in the collection, and if you click HERE you can visit the market place to check them all out. I want more though, I think they’re absolutely brilliant. I also want Amuse to sell a fat pack of all the bottles, as well as mesh wine racks to display them in, wouldn’t that be fabulous?)

Incidentally there’s a lovely bottle that would be perfect for Valentine’s day, ‘Love Potion #9’, which would look great as part of a display.  There’s also Moonshine, Absinthe and lovely, honeyed Mead! Brilliant work Amuse, please Sir, can we have some more?!

You’ll also see in my picture a roaster and a lovely tray from ‘Follow Us’.  The tray replete with mug, spoon and croissant is just L$1 and it’s rather sweet!  The toaster and jars were part of a kitchen set that includes toaster, mixer, toast, butter, jam, nutella and a couple of bowls of coffee for L$59. I like the jars and the toast, although the toaster itself is a bit plain, but the items are mesh and you can’t grumble at the price for props. (There are other mesh toasters available by other creators, but I’m not paying L$399 for a toaster unless it actually bakes the bread, toasts it, butters it and then serves it me in bed!)  ‘Follow Us’ is actually a natty wee store; there are loads of bargains to be had and lots of mesh items, so do take the time to check it out if you’re looking for homewares. They do lots of kitchen related items, as well as furniture, pictures and decorative items all at great prices and all mesh as far as I can tell.

Right, bugger off and leave me alone. I’m like a Kitty with a sore head in the mornings until I’ve had my coffee cat’s piss…
