Doo-Wops & Sock Hops Hunt Scene

So quick post today to highlight some fun 50’s decor and fashion available for free on the Doo-Wops & Sock Hops Hunt ending TONIGHT, May 24, 2015! (Sorry, crazy week I planned on blogging this sooner ūüė¶ ) Finishing Touches hunt gift is the Doo-Wop Diner Counter¬†including the hot pink and teal record wall decor, and the black & white checker counter booth, diner stools, menu and cupcake display. ¬†To complete the diner scene I added LISP Rain & Shine Bistro Set, Ispachi Buger & Pancake Meal, Floorplan Eat Sign & Vintage Milk Caddy, Fetch¬†Sweet & Ice Cream Sign, What Next Loungin Rug & Milkshakes, and Blueberry Hill Retro Sweet Treat Signs. ¬†There is also some gleeful 50’s fashion offered on the hunt including the Get Frocked Retro Dress {shown below}, a hot pink dress with record printed skirt. ¬†I paired the retro¬†dress with Chop Zuey’s¬†Chaconne Set¬†offered for free to the SL Free & Offers group. Put on your Bobby Sock and Poddle Skirt,¬†head over to Finishing Touches and grab this adorable Diner Set, I’ll bring the milkshakes! ¬†Doo-Wops & Sock Hops Hunt Dress

First thank you all for your support and great positive¬†feedback with last weeks open house. When my design partner in crime, Niki Silverweb first suggested the idea I was scared that we would be spammed, or no one would show up. ¬†I couldn’t have been more surprised by the great outpouring from friends, designers, and fellow bloggers. ¬†So, since it was a huge success last weekend, we are going to open up our homes this weekend, Sept 13-16. It’s the perfect opportunity to showcase both of our styles.

Early in 2014, Niki & I collaborated on our first build together, the Men’s Warehouse, an industrial loft space with game area, bar, Niki’s art studio, and rest/work zone with walls of bricks and open windows. ¬†It is the best guy’s hangout I’ve seen on Second Life. ¬†It’s truly awesome!

A few months ago, I gave you a sneak peek of the bedroom in my retro Palm Springs home. Today, we are going back to the 50’s inspired mid-century modern home with walls of glass, wood paneling, and a very cool side yard. ¬†The home features a stone facade entry¬†with modern art installation (& Snowflake, our DIVA cat’s¬†digs), a large wood-paneled living room decorated in black, white, and yellow with starburst mirror over the see-through fireplace, a music room complete with jukebox and scattered¬†records, and a 50’s kitchen in red, white, and teal, finished with retro appliances, decorative signage, and of course a turkey in the oven! ¬†I tried to stay true to the mid-century movement with sleek¬†lines, bright colors, hard edges, and an overall uncluttered look. ¬†The outside yard plays host to family/friends BBQ with watermelon influenced patio furniture: aluminum lawn chairs, picnic set, drink dispenser, and a pink/white camper! ¬†Wander out back and meet our Sassy and her gang of sheep, relax, stay for dinner, and enjoy (grab a beer at Niki’s)!
