Living At The Vintage Fair

I’ve always loved vintage homes. When I was younger, my older sister used to decorate with all this stuff she’d find at thrift shops and she’d create amazing things with what others would consider “old junk.” I’ve never had the luck she’s had in finding the best old things, but luckily in SL, I can have my vintage style without having to sift through peoples’ used china.

At the Vintage Fair, Funky Junk has brought us the Salinas house. It is too adorable! Of course, I always say that about Funky Junk houses, but I always mean it! There are two bedrooms and a sunken living room, along with the bathroom, dining room, and generously sized kitchen. You can choose to get it without a garage as well.

I learned how to type on a typewriter. Setting it between pica and elite, hearing the satisfying CLACK CLACK CLACK of the keys, it’s definitely a whole different ballgame than typing on a computer. What Next‘s Nouvelle Study has the cutest little typewriter on it! Oh, and a rotary phone! There are plenty of cute animations in the set, too.

And finally for today, you should check out the RemiRetro furniture set from Bella Rose. There’s all kinds of cute pieces in it, and the colors remind me of something you might find in the Brady Bunch house! I think my favorite item in the whole set might just be that clock! Or the radio! Or… well, it’s all so cute, I just can’t pick one favorite!

Go on, now. Go to the Vintage Fair and find some home stuff!

Mmmm…more Vintage Fair goodies! I’ve been setting up Funky Junk‘s new Pasadena house that is out at the Vintage Fair for the past couple of days. It’s all kinds of retro love! With Nana’s TV Room Set from Hanaya, also at the Vintage Fair, it just makes you step back in time!

I was very excited to see Reale out at the Vintage Fair this year, especially with this adorable Soda dress! The skirt is a mix of sculpts and flexi, so you get nice movement, and the whole thing is really very figure flattering with the waistband and bow that hit in just the right spots.

If you haven’t made it out to the Vintage Fair yet, be prepared for some lag, of course, but also be prepared to spend spend spend!! Oh! And I’ll be out there tomorrow [Sunday the 13th] DJing a Sock Hop from 7pm-9pm SLT! I hope to see you guys out there for some great old music and lots of fun!

Part Of Your World

Most of my friends know that I’m totally and completely in love with shopping for home furniture and decor. Seriously. I love it more than shopping for shoes, and you guys know how I love shoes! Luckily, my wifey humors me and when I yell “I NEED A NEW HOUSE!” she obliges and builds something perfect for all my furniture. The newest house from Funky Junk, Ariel, is utterly perfect for the summer!

Style - Ariel

An awesome beach house up on stilts, the Ariel home is open and inviting, with two large rooms, a great loft, and a charming sunroom. Trust me, I have spent many evenings in the sunroom watching the sunset! I do, of course, have a million pics for you all. Remember, these are just “serving suggestions” as to what you can do with the rooms. I always urge you to put your own style in your living space!

The Ariel home comes in at 145 prims, or 161 with the added decor of a lifesaver ring, boat oars, rusted nautical star, and a lantern full of pretty shells. My house is in the Mist color, and it also comes in Kelp, a soft green.

You need it, you want it, you love it. Go to Funky Junk and buy it!

BoHo, baby!

This month’s Spruce Up Your Space theme is So BoHo! I got utterly giddy when I heard the theme because that’s a style I like a whole lot! And I got even more excited when I found out Funky Junk was going to be in it. Look at this CUTE little house Ulaa made for the event!

Style - Boho, baby!

Isn’t it just adorable? Well, if you think this is good – let’s take a look inside!!

The living room is large and spacious with a fun wallpaper! Lots of room to pack in your favorite stuff. The fireplace facade with the art and stuff on top is also included in your BoHo Cottage, but is of course removable if you need to save on prims. If you look at the two Fondant Poufs in the middle of the room, those are from LISP Bazaar, on sale for SUYS this weekend as well.

Style - Boho, baby! - Living room

I set up this room as a kitchen/dining area. The large windows have a really cool soft colored texture that tie in with the wallpapers in the house, and with the stained glass in the house.

Style - Boho, baby! - Kitchen

And of course, what’s a house without a bedroom? I wasn’t quite sure about this wallpaper when I first saw it, but I gotta say, it totally grew on me. It’s just so different and so … boho! The Mia Palette Bed that I’m laying on is from Mudhoney and is also for SUYS this weekend. It’s so sweet, and fits into this house SO well.

Style - Boho, baby! - Bedroom

The Funky Junk BoHo Cottage comes with 2 sets of texture change drapes, 3 pieces of wall art, the fireplace mantle, and a scripted porch light. It is 99 prims rezzed by itself, 172 with all the extra goodies. Everything is copy/mod, no transfer.

Spruce Up Your Space for this weekend is only a few more hours, but I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to pick up these items at regular price after the weekend is over if you miss it. At any price, it’s something you’ve got to have!

I love bluebonnets in the spring

So like I said in my last post [god, I am slow lately!], Funky Junk came out with a house that is very near and dear to me. Why? Well, for one, it’s based off an idea I showed to Funky Junk creator Ulaa Coronet, and she totally put her own spin on it and made it ten times better than I imagined. And two, she named it after my sim – Bluebonnet!

Style - Bluebonnet House

Gorgeous, right? It features a wide porch [necessary because I MUST have a place to drink my sweet tea!], two balconies, and a good sized patio. Inside, it has JUST the right amount of rooms – living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. There’s also a little area that you could do pretty much anything with.

Check out the pics of the inside!

Upstairs area – I turned it into a reading nook!

Bathroom. [Could easily be a small bedroom if you don’t get down with bathrooms in SL.]

Style - Bluebonnet Bathroom

Bright and cheery bedroom! My favorite room in the house!

Style - Bluebonnet bedroom

The Bluebonnet house is 267 prims and is a 17×29 footprint. It is copy/mod, so you can mod away to your heart’s content to make it fit your style better. But of course, this is exactly MY style, so I didn’t have to do anything to it except fill it with furniture. 🙂 Head over to Funky Junk and rez a demo! You will just fall in love with it!

There’s no way I could possibly name all the furniture/accessories I’ve used in this house, but here are a few of the stores where you can shop for great home/garden things!

Livin’ La Vida Pink!

Are you as much as a prefab addict as I am? I simply cannot resist when I see a little house or skybox that I like! When Funky Junk owner Ulaa Coronet decided to bring out one of her best selling homes in pink for Valentine’s Day, and then slapped a $50L tag on it… well, you can imagine how excited I was!

Style - Livin' La Vida Pink - front

Style - Livin' La Vida Pink - inside

Eeee! It’s so cute! This is a recolor of her Quaint home, so it’s named My Quaint Valentine. I could just squeal over the cuteness, but you probably want details, am I right? This house has a 6 by 16 footprint and is 72 prims. Ulaa is awesome [and I don’t say that just because she’s my partner!] and she’s included some matching accessories – table, chairs, texture change rug, fireplace facade with the flower basket, and a window flower box. Altogether, it comes out to just 132 prims! And of course you can not use the accessories, if you don’t want to. The house is copy only, no mod and no transfer. For only $50L, it is a heck of a deal!

Go to Funky Junk now!! This deal is only available through Valentine’s Day. I’ll be showing you another of the new homes from Funky Junk that is near and dear to my heart later this week, so keep an eye out!

I can’t name all the furniture that I put into this house, aside from the accessories that are included, but here are some of the stores where you can go shop for some of what is shown:
