Life may not be the party we hoped for,
but while we’re here we should dance.

.. black tulip @ 2014 SL home & garden expo ..

The 2014 SL Home & Garden Expo is underway and will be open until the 28th.  Today, I am sharing one of the awesome builds from Auryn Beorn of Black Tulip, a Platinum Sponsor of the event.  Auryn brings for one of her new exclusive items for the event, a sweet little build “My Little School”.   This cute build is a perfect one-room school with great windows and a small front porch.  Inside you will find a large room with a smaller planning or storage area as well.  Auryn has set this build out as one of her items with 100% of the purchase price being donated to Relay For Life of Second Life via the official RFL vendor.  The other item that Black Tulip has available in the RFL vendor is the set “The Classroom” that supplies the desks and blackboards for a perfect school room set up.  Black Tulip is a wonderful supplier for the builder/designer in SL as well as for others pulling together a realistic setting.  Auryn build a beautiful greenhouse with its first showing at Expo as well.  Stop in to see Black Tulip and peruse the poses, the full perm items, and the classes – books and books to help you learn about scripting, posing, meshing and more!

I decided that this little school needed to be filled with eager little students and I filled it up with some bears from BoOgErS, some hipsters from Birdy/Alchemy and a wolf from Silent Sparrow.  Adding in to the scene are school items from Milk Motion, Sari Sari and Little Hopper.  Rounding out the fun are some pedal cars and tricycles from Snips and Snails and Little Hopper.  All of this found at the September round of The Arcade Gacha Event.
