Happy Humpday to all of you !

Today I found a little time to blog, and not fighting with damn graphic-drivers.

So, I use this chance to show you some of the goodies you can find at the currently running Swimming Pool Blue Hunt, organised by Monochrome Hunts. In this Hunt every Huntgift costs you 5L$ – but you find all the items, with hints and SLurls to the shops displayed on the hintpage for the Swimming Pool Blue Hunt. Hope you enjoy this Hunt as much as I have done before.

Let us start with the finds, I want to show you in todays blogpost: ready for new interior? The this great couch from MM(home). The sofa comes prefilled with 8 sitting animations -for two avatars- and can become adjusted by menu. With only 12 Prims, it is not to primmy so it should fit into your home!

My todays look is combined from YoPulga and 22769 ~ casual couture.

Let us start with the unique top. As you can see, one arm is covered and the other not. This gives you an intresting shape, and it fits to a lot of situations where you can wear your own and creative look. The top comes in mesh female standard sizing.

The pants I’m wearing are from 22769, yes I was searching for the huntgift and ended up shopping there (again – *sigh*). But, thank god I found out after finding the blue glowing palette, that they give away in the Swimming Pool Hunt my trousers in a lightblue color. But, that didn’t match to my todays look so I choose to wear the black one, wich is available from different colors they offer for just 130L$.

My shoes are from SLink and available on Vintage Fair 2012. I have blogged another color option already here, so please refer to that blogpost for more information.

The art you see on my wall today is also a gift from the Swimming Pool Blue Hunt. This great piece can be found at SFW Industries. This grouped photoframe is mesh and only 1 in LandImpact. The images shown in the frames are from the underwater photographer Elena Kalis.

Now it’s time for small sidenote: you see the great pink lipstick I wear in the pictures? It’s a new groupgift from Curvy Silhouettes by Xanthe and her lovley inworld store CS-Shapes by Xanthe Audeburgh. You know Xanthe she loves to surprise their groupmembers, and while I was taking pictures she sent it out. Thank you!

I do love hunts in SL. And to be honest – not neccessarily for the gifts but to find new shops and places I have never heard about. And of course: if the gifts I gain through the treasure hunt are good you definitely will not hear me complaining. The Swimming Pool Blues Hunt is a hunt that fulfills both expectations – to introduce me to new shops and places and also some neat gifts. The theme of this hunt is blue – swimmingpool blue to be precise. Every gift has to have all shades of blue you can find in a swimming pool. Very Edward Hopper. Oh and I should add that every gift is 5L$ what is not too much if you look at the quality of the creations.

But lets start with this neat little mansion from L&K Prefabs: it is extremely lovely made and the texturing is brilliant. Of course not everything in the “Ma Petite Mansion” is blue – you also find white walls in it and the lovely seagrass graphic. Anyways it is a wonderful little house that works quite good as a boat house or a beach shag. It is also mod – so you can alter it to your needs if you have a little building knowledge.

One thing you can get in this hunt is interior design and furniture – and the gifts are high quality and well thought and dedicated to the theme. The art above me is the gift from UrbanizeD. The art to my right is one of the gifts from BoatHouse. The second one is the plaid rug. The shop BoatHouse was completely new to me and I spent quite some time there. I can tell you – it is lovely. BoatHouse offers many furniture, houses and probs with neat little poses and well scripted. You can find rowboats there also like pontons and many things more – and what I have seen all wonderful made. BoatHouse definitely is one of my personal finds in the hunt.

But let’s continue with the prices: the chair I am sitting on is from [kusshon] – and like every furniture from [kusshon] this also is extremely well done. I had a giggle when I browsed through the  animations/poses menue because the animations have the names of movie stars (shown above is Clooney). The couch table is from Baffle and is called “Oceanic End Table”. It is another brilliant gift and shows probably best that the creators have well overthought the theme of the hunt and made something very unique out of it. There are starfish and sand inside and even water that moves. The texturing of the table is just so real that you want to grab in your screen. The gift comes with lamp and without lamp (which is a mastepiece of its own).

The sideboard is the gift from Senzafine and it matches just perfect the overall look and feel of all the hunt gifts you can find in this hunt. A wonderful piece of furniture that gives your virtual home an extra.

Finally the dozen long stemmed roses are not from the hunt, but a find at the Vintage Fair. This great piece of decor comes from Hanaya and is – again – a wonderful add to your decor that brings personality and a special touch in your home.

Following the theme of todays blog entry I rushed over to the Mens Dept. to get me the new Poetic Colors mesh eyes “nightfall (nightsky)”. Like always and like with every eyes PC are doing the texturing is from out of this world. I am so glad that Poetic Colors are back again and that they also work with mesh to even improve their flawless work they did before. And at the Mens Dept. I also got me the denim capri shorts from CheerNo and the blue tee from DROP.
