Memorial Gardens

Memorial Gardens

Today is officially the final day of Fantasy Faire however the Faire will be accessible until the sims fade away. This year’s Faire was an explosion of activity and with over 11 million linden donated to Relay For Life it was a huge success! If you have not had time to visit the event, or would like to visit the sim with a little less lag, now is the time! There are plenty of shops to visit for all your last minute shopping needs. The designers this year have pulled out all the stops to create magic in our divine world. I like to build little reflection areas on my sims that represent each Faire and these beautiful benches by Artisan Fantasy are the perfect sim decor for your Fantasy Fair 2018 memorabilia.

Each designer’s store has at least 2 official Fantasy Faire vendors with newly created items. The proceeds of these sales go directly to the total being raised for Relay for Life. So, hit these vendor boards hard. To make things easy for you, we have created a shopping catalog that showcases over 750 of these exclusive items on Pinterest!  And, if you’d like to shop by your favorite creator, here is a list of their locations on the various sims.

Items in the above image that can be found at Fantasy Faire:
Memorial Bench and Monument by Artisan Fantasy ~ Available at Fantasy Faire on the Aetherea Sim {Final Days, Sim still open until they are taken down}
Round Wildflower Garden – yellow and orange by Simply Shelby ~ Available at Fantasy Faire on the Willows of Nienna Sim {Final Days, Sim still open until they are taken down}

Halls of Story Image by Kynne Llewellyn

Kynne and I fluttered off to to the Halls of Story in search of ancient songs collected by our cherished elves. The stained glass windows were mesmerizing and we couldn’t help but notice how they resembled the wings of fae. The Halls of Story is where the Literary Festival will take place and we are here to help you dress to your fairy-best…. if you so choose.

Shopping and Art Is Our Passion

Of course we all love the amazing builds and the fabulous talent, quests and events happening at the Faire, but we cannot have a successful celebration without our accomplished designers who have set up shops in the various regions. Each creator has filled their pop-up store with wares for the fantasy lover in all of us, which has filled Flickr with some amazing images this week.

Willows of Nienna

The Willows of Nienna is a mystical sim enveloped in beautiful hues of amethyst and lapis lazuli built on a foundation of watery tears of hope.  I found myself entranced by the sheer beauty of the build and totally captivated in the ambiance. There is a feeling of sadness and longing combined with a strong sense of lasting hope. I do believe if J.R.R. Tolkien envisioned a world for Nienna it would resemble the Willows of Nienna.

Welcome to Erstwhile!

Welcome to Erstwhile

Descending upon the land of Erstwhile teleports one back to a distant past that sits nestled in the future. It is a land where long ago meets the excitement of the present with an ability to breathe the air of the of a time not yet to arrive. The gleaming brass frames of the colorful glass yields an imaginary field of fragrant metal wildflowers, stiff and unbending on the sunlit stone. The ambiance is inviting and invigorating. You’ve reached the launching point to propel yourself into the future without leaving the past behind.
