Happy April!  Attention all chickies, bunnies, kitties, and friends, the EB is coming to fill special baskets for special people.  This weekend your home will be filled with family and friends for the holiday and it’s a perfect occasion to refresh your decor in tones of pinks, blues, yellow and pastels.  Dreamscapes Art Gallery has everything you need for spring including the Eve Fireplace, Olivia Shelf, Milla Couch, and Spring Chair.  You can also pick up adorable decorative accessories items: Home Sweet Home Sign, Shutter DecorTulip Bench, Vases & Pots, and Easter Crates/ Candles Plates.  I added The Mustard Seed Trunk Tulips & Cat (texture change vase & kitty- on sale for $60L this weekend) and Zoe’s Garden Spring At Last Vase (**free** @ The Cookie Jar Spring Festival Hunt).  Hope you have a wonderful Easter and are inspired by the seasonal offerings.

Spring has Sprung!

Spring flowers are popping up to grow tall in the glow of the day.  Easter is around the corner, eggs are being dyed, and its beautiful day.  Gloria discovered an enchanted forest (Dimrill Dale) on her easter egg hunt and stops to enjoy the wonder that surrounds her while wearing her new find from Collabor88.

Collabor88 is a monthly event that runs from the 8th of each month and ends the 8th of the following month (March 8th to April 8th).  Some of the most loved designer participate in the super bargain basement monthly event offering specials for 88, 188 or 288L.  I purchased a few cute spring ensemble that I’m sure I’ll wear over and over again.

Let’s start with the canvas, Glam Affair Amberly Artic in Candy 01 (blue) for 188L.  A side note, Glam Affair recently released the Amberly skin series at the main store for 1,000L and is hosting a contest closing Friday.  I have been wearing my Amberly skin selection around the grid and will blog more about the Glam Affair Amberly contest shortly.

I also purchased D!va Flora hair for 188L, flowers in hair optional.  I’m not sure what it is with me but I can’t seem to pass up a opporunity to buy crazy skin or make-up. 🙂  The LaGyo Isabella jewelry set screamed spring to me, so I needed to make another trip to Collabor88 to pick them up.  Each piece was sold separately, total $364.  I had actually tried to get to C88 early but the sim was either full or crashed my viewer several times.  I felt pretty luck to get in this time and score great spring deals.

Finesmith Valentine Hunt

Finesmith Jewelry is having a Valentine hunt until the end of the month, February 28, 2013. There are 16 hidden hearts priced from 0L to 100L.  Personally, I like to preview the hunt items before I spend my time and money hunting for them.  So, below I have taken snapshots of each collection to give you a better idea of the gifts.

First up and my favorite, the Love Nugget set includes red hearts and flowers necklace (heart #5), matching corsage bracelet (heart #9), ring (heart #9) and stud rose earrings (heart #1).  I am wearing Truth January hair in Chocberry.

Love Nugget Set

Next, is the Heartfelt collection: necklace (heart #14), stacked bangles (heart #8) and drop earrings (heart #4).  Three color options are include in each piece, silver with red stone, gold with black stone and black with purple. I paired this set with Truth Hollana hair special priced for 88L at Collabor88.  I had never been to Collabor88 but when I received a notice from Truth Hair that one of their styles were priced so low, I run and purchased this hair in a number of colors. Normally, Truth hair in 250L, so this is a super steal for an adorable hair. I purchased a few other items at Collabor88 and will post an article shortly.

Heartfelt Set

Warning: when wearing the Valentine necklace (heart #16) there is no denying your true feelings. This large display of affection comes in oxidized, copper (worn), gold & silver.

Drops of gold and regal flair will be yours when wearing the next collection, Dark Love. This collection also comes in matte silver and black. I paired the necklace (heart # 11), chandelier earrings (heart # 7), and tiara (heart # 15) with the Touch of Love in Gold Ruby ring (heart #2) and Love Spell hair sticks in Gold (heart # 6). Dark Love Set

And, finally an avant garde costume collection, Hot Red. The necklace (heart # 10), earrings (heart # 13), bracelet (heart # 3) and crown (heart #12) have large shaped hearts falling off of thin silver cords. Hot Red setI also wanted to show you a few group gifts and specials I picked up when I was hunting at Finesmith. The first photo is the Valentine group gift, Love Angel in Gold with fab wing details and a very cool bracelet. Membership for Finesmith is 365L.  Next, is another group gift the Mixed Copper Necklace.  And, finally a 55 Thursday special, Love Doesn’t Grow collection.  I fell in love with this artist branch necklace and wish Yula would make more piece like this one. Please note the necklace is called Love is In the Details and the earrings are Love Doesn’t Grow on Tree, although there are corresponding necklaces and earrings they are not on sale. I splurged and purchased the Love Doesn’t Grow Bracelet pictured below. The background was The Cold Winter Night hunt item from Katink with 10 textures for 10L. Most of the poses are from WetCat’s Carmen set.
