#460 - Much, Much More, Full Perms And Home Decor @ The Wash Cart Sale

There is always so much more at The Wash than you might expect. There is fashion, home and garden decor, landscaping, and there are also full permission items here too for builders! Here is a look at a few things for anyone with a retail store.
CLUTTER, TIMELESS TEXTURES (BOTH @ THE WASH)
& LUNAR SEASONAL (THE CREATIVE SPARK EVENT) FULL PERMISSIONS ITEMS
Here are some full perm items from Clutter - Benny Merchant Packs (3 shown here), all varying packages of retail signage that one might need for their store. These are mesh items and come with AO and UV maps too. There are more notecards for working with mesh objects included. I have textured some of them with various textures available from the Timeless Textures stall and other in solid colors from the edit menu. They come white as the "sale" sign appears in the middle of them all. Timeless Textures has lots of  textures on their stall and almost every one of them is 10L! As are the packs from Clutter as well! Great deals on the full perm items you will find @ The Wash Cart Sale!

There is also another event going on. The Creative Spark is a new store hop event and it contains both full perms and retail items in their specials in each round. Above I have the Lunar Seasonal Designs - Tree of Life Wall Art. This is a full perm item and comes as seen on the bottom. Above it, I have done some simple texturing with a mix of color and one of the Timeless Textures - Mixed Wood Selection Cloudy textures on the frame faces and tinted those to make it look the way it does. 
LUNAR SEASONAL DESIGNS - TREE OF LIFE WALL ART
Here is a closer look at this item from Lunar Seasonal Designs. It comes as seen on the bottom and my simple texturing is the top version. The price on this item is $75L. You can see all of the items in this round on the website: https://thecreativesparkofsl.blogspot.com/ 
CLOSER LOOK AT TIMELESS TEXTURES VARIOUS TEXTURES ON CLUTTER - RETAIL SIGNS
Here is just a closer look at the textures from Timeless Textures (@ The Wash Cart Sale), from the top clockwise you see: Retrograde 50s, Background Noise Lime, Flirty Fabrics Blue Skies (free sign) and Mixed Wood Selection Cloudy (prize sign). And on the floor (first picture and next) is another one from the Mixed Wood Selection Cloudy set. Also shown in the first picture is a sample from the Timeless Textures - Disco Dots Aqua set.
FURNITURE BY ATHY DESIGNS AND WALL ART BY DIGITAL DREAMS
Here you see some home decor, all of which reminds me of the ocean or the beach! Where I'd love to be right now! The furniture seen is the Athy Designs - Mesh Lazy Day Chair, Palm Plant and Table. The chairs come with tropical print pillow and quite a few male and female sits. They are all copy too.
The wall art is all by Digital Dreams and is a total of 7 different pieces. 10L each. Included in this picture are the following: DigitalDreams - Storm, Beautiful Day, Water Horse, Surfer Waves, Take Flight, Blue Fish and Water Angels. All great pieces but I really love the water color paintings.

I am also wearing some new items from Facepalm Clothing and Shapes! The new Angel Shape is made for the Catwa Catya head and the Maitreya Lara Body. I've adjusted her to fit my Catwa Uma head which did not take many adjustments at all and I am loving her shape! The new +FS+ Jude skirt  and On Your Marks shoes are seen here, made for the Maitreya, Belleza and Slink bodies. All 3 are new in the store!

 So don't miss out on these two events! Or the new releases!

#459 - Sometimes A Woman's Touch Is Not Enough

I thought adding a little bright decor would help the dark, rather dim basement bar and help soften it. But sometimes, a woman's touch is just not enough. I think it needs a full remodel!
DARK KNIGHT DECOR - HERE COMES THE SUN WALL HANGING, VINTAGE SEED DECOR & POPPY TRIO WALL ART 
So I looked around the man bar and pondered what else I might be able to do right away, if anything. It was such a mess and so dreary! I could think of nothing more that I had on hand, because this place needed a lot of work! And who knows if he'd even let me do it. I was sneaking these things in already! Well, so much for now. Maybe I should just take this stuff down. These decor pieces might get depressed and dark just hanging here. Lol! Speaking of these decor pieces, these are from Dark Knight Decor, the Here Comes The Sun Wall Hanging, Vintage Seed Decor and Poppy Trio Wall Art. All three of which can be found at The Wash Cart Sale, Dark Knight Decor stall.
+FC+ ZINNIA SKIRT & DEJA TOP
I was looking around and loving the look and feel of this floor length skirt from Facepalm Clothing. This is the +FC+ Zinnia skirt and it comes with a hud of 12 texture hud and in sizes for both Classic and Mesh Avatar bodies. In the package you will receive sizes for Belleza, Tonic, Slink, Maitreya, TMP and Standard sizes. Zinnia is a new release at the Twe12ve event until the 30th. Then it should be in the store.
I am also wearing new polish from Dark Passions. This is called Synthetic Glow and these nails can be found at the Fantasy Collective until June 10th. This is one of two new designs there. These are applied to Omega nails on the Maitreya hands.
BOOTY'S BEAUTY - CATWA MAKEUP ~ WIDOW'S KISS & VICE LASHES
I am also wearing makeup from *Booty's Beauty* made for Catwa heads. Here I am wearing the Eyelashes from the Catwa Lashes ~ Vice hud and the eyeshadow and lipstick from the Catwa Makup ~ Widow's Kiss. These are new releases in the store.
LUMINESSE - CHERETTE MATIA ANKLETS & DARK PASSIONS - OUT OF THIS WORLD NAIL POLISH
Here is the other nail polish release from Dark Passions - Out of This World, found at the Fantasy Collective. These are applied on Maitreya toes.
Also seen here are some new anklets, the Luminesse - Cherette Matia Anklets and these are found at The Wash Cart Sale, Luminesse Cart. They include a resizer so you can fit to your ankles as you like. Very pretty anklets! I would love to see them in more colors. There are more full price items in the store, which is directly behind the stall! These however, are only $10L each as with many items around The Wash. Great deals all around this sim.

You only have one more full day for The Wash Cart Sale before it's gone! So come on by and enjoy the new sim design, take a stroll and find some great deals you may not have heard about yet!

The Wash Cart Sale - Ends May 16th --> Extended to May 20th!!!

Twe12ve - Ends May 30th

#458 - The Appalachian Event (DSO & Captured Waters)

The Appalachian Event is a new event that runs from May 5th to May 20th. The grounds are so pretty and it's a nice country styled area. So pretty to see and the stalls look like little country porches, so very cute!
APPALACHIAN SPRINGS EVENT GROUNDS - DSO STALL 3RD STALL (RED)
So very cute! Didn't I tell ya? So come on by this quaint little event and see what deals you can find here! And you will hear the sounds of the country here too! Oh, did I mention there are gifts here too? Yes, many of the merchants here have gifts out for the shoppers.
***DSO*** BASEBALL CAP - ALLIES
Here in the Gacha Mine (also at the Appalachian event) you will find the ***DSO*** Fetish & Sexuality Pride Hats Gacha. I am wearing one of the hats from this gacha called Allies. It is modify so you can resize it and move it around your head so you can find that perfect fit. There are many hats in this collection and you will pay $25L per pull for them so they are quite affordable.

Also seen here are the {Poeme} - Mandala Gold & Purple Earrings, available at The Wash Cart Sale. Makeup by *Booty's Beauty* Catwa Makeup ~ Trashy Treasures (lipstick and lashes). I am wearing a tattoo from InnerJoy Love Designs, which is also at The Wash Cart Sale too. Here is the flickr pic of this tattoo. FYI - Not Suitable for Work! Well, she has underwear on, so you decide: Flickr


Also at this event is a store called Captured Waters. Here is a look at what she creates for your home or gardens. There are quite a few of these Dragon Box Fountains. This one is inside my home, but I think it would look just as nice outside in the yard too like in a sitting area maybe? Or a quiet spot where you can meditate? I am thinking outside!
CAPTURED WATERS - DRAGON BOX 1 FOUNTAIN
This is the Captured Waters - Dragon Box 1 Fountain, it is resize it to as large as you'd like and the prims will stay the same. And it comes in a much smaller size out of the box than seen here (as they all do). This one is resized to almost the height of the ceiling in my home. This has a click on and off water sound.
Also seen on either side are the Unicorn 2 & 1 Signs from Tiar which are currently at The Wash Cart Sale, $10L each!
CAPTURED WATERS - BLUE RIDGE SPRING
This is the Captured Waters - Blue Ridge Spring fountain and this one is sitting outside my home on the porch. Another feature with this one is the water texture here can be changed. You can have the beaded waters cascade down the picture or you can have waves of waters cascading down the picture and there is a sound on and off option with a click on the picture. You click the water to change that texture. You will find both these fountains at the Appalachian Event - Captured Waters store.

Appalachian Event - Ends May 20th

#457 - RYL Exclusive @ UP

RYL has brought the hot and sexy Colorato Trikini as an Exclusive to the UP event! They are all colorful and barely there, but still cover you in all the right places!
RYL - COLORATO TRIKINI
The RYL - Colorato Trikini comes in 6 versions, all quite colorful and all come in sizes for the Classic avatar, Slinks and Maitreya. Above I am wearing it on the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body. It hugs the body nicely and even with lots of movement I don't see my body poking thru it. So that is so nice! The UP event runs until May 15th, so you still have a little time to get there.
The background texture here is from the Timeless Textures - Brick by Brick Azure #7 and this set is available at The Wash Cart Sale until May 16th for only $10L!
NAIL IT GOOD - IT'S MAY NAILS --- NEPHILIM SKIN --- EVEN~TIDE TATTOOS
I'm also wearing some new nails, Nail It Good's - It's May nails. These are applied with the Omega appliers and  you get Slink, Omega and Maitreya appliers all in one hud. Please Note: these nails will not work for the system or classic avatar bodies, only mesh hands or nails as listed. You will find Nail It Good at The Wash Cart Sale until May 16th. This is just one design on the cart.

The skin seen in these pictures is from Nephilim - Immortal Severina skin and was a quest gift skin, so this one is not available unless you completed the quest and picked up all your gifts. But, there are many more skins in the store. So no worries, I am sure you can find a similar skin tone you will be happy with!
Body tattoos are from the Magical Tattoos at Even~Tide. This version, :[ET]: Magical Spirit (the one worn in the photo) is available in the store and are applied using Omega appliers.
RYL - EROTICA SILK GACHA (BRA, PANTY & RARE CORSET - RED) & X-CLUSIVE ANIMATIONS - SHERATON SEX LOUNGER
RYL also has the Erotica Silk Gacha at the Up event too, which is also an exclusive at this event. Here I am wearing the red pieces from the gacha. Bra, Panty and the Rare Corset. These are made for mesh bodies only and sizes for this gacha are Bellezas, Slinks, Maitreya and TMP.

The lounger seen here is the X-Clusive Animations - Sheraton Sex Lounger and the animation here is her fanning herself due to the heat! I loved it! I had to use this one to show off the gacha outfit. This is totally me almost all the time and has been for years! Anyway, you can find the Sheraton Sex Lounger at The Wash Cart Sale! And it is only $10L! Soooo, if you are a fan of X-clusive Animations then you wanna visit the The Wash because they have quite a few items at The Wash each time they've been here. So stop by! You can clean up for fewer lindens than you might think! Really!

#456 - A Peaceful Place

Don't we all have a place we'd like or we like to go when we want to relax? A place where it's quiet and calm, we can sit and just gather our serenity again? I would love to have a place I can create and have in my own backyard. And I think I found one item I can place there!
THE DARK FAE'S "DON'T BE KOI" FOUNTAIN @ THE WASH CART SALE
This is The Dark Fae's  "Don't Be Koi" Fountain. This is a beautiful fountain for your home or garden. Very pretty marbled tile base with Koi fish around it and a couple of areas on each end to place a chair or a rug or something to sit on and enjoy the peacefulness of your surroundings. This is available at The Wash Cart Sale which opened on May 2nd. So pretty isn't it? This is The Dark Fae's $50L item at The Wash. One item is set to $50L and the rest of the items on the cart are at $10L. Even for $50L, that is a great price for an item like this to beautify any part of your home and garden. You can pick this item up at The Dark Fae's Cart at The Wash. This event runs until May 16th.

LIBERTINE - VELVET PILLOWS SET
Added some accessories from Libertine - Sabai Set and now it's even that much more comfortable! These items I picked up at the Fantasy Faire this year. This floating pillow, incense and flowers are pieces of in a full set from Libertine and will be available after the faire. Right now you can find these in Atherea, until the faire closes.

BOOTY'S BEAUTY - CATWA MAKEUP ~ METAL BITCH
The skin is the Fallen Gods - Flow - Balance Classic and currently at Atherea  at the Fantasy Faire. It is one of 3 versions just released at the faire and will be available at the store after the fairelands are gone. It comes with Omega and Slink appliers for the head and body. Along with other attachments.
I did not want to add much makeup to this skin but I thought it needed a little so I've added eyeshadow and lipstick from the Booty's Beauty Catwa Makeup ~ Metal Bitch. The lips are normally a pinkish peachy color on the skin and no shadow just the dark grey and white skin. I am also wearing the skin without brows since I was quite happy with this look without them.

#454 - A Stranger Travels About Sanoria

The woman wanders the warm sands of Sanoria. She's gone unnoticed so far for the time she's been here. She moves along the rock walkways hoping to go completely unnoticed by anyone. Looking around she keeps her distance from the others going about their own business in this busy marketplace. "Good" she thinks to herself, "no one is even noticing me."
She must keep her distance so no one gets too close. She cannot afford to be discovered. She appears normal from a distance in her Sari with a scarf for a quick face cover should she need it. But, it's hard to cover her eyes. Once you look into her eyes one could see she seems as out of place here as the strange plant-life and other alien items found around this land.
DREAMING THICKET - VERBENA OUTFIT (TOP W/SCARF, HAIR, SKIRT & SKIRT SCARF)
Then, something catches her attention, this is why she's come looking. Then she suddenly forgets all going on around her as she stares into the distance. There is something obviously very familiar to her about it and she lets out a sigh of relief. She's may have finally found her way out of this land and back home. After ending her admiration of the object, she makes her way back to her dwelling until the night arrives. It's better she approaches under the cover of night and when the streets are hopefully empty. She takes a quick glance again as if to make sure it is not a mirage, and then heads off to formulate a plan.
ND/MD - ZOE SKIN (LIGHTEST TONE) & MAKEUP BY BOOTY'S BEAUTY
This beautiful outfit is from Dreaming Thicket. This is the Dreaming Thicket - Verbena Outfit. They are sold in two pieces, the tops and skirts in 6 color options. The tops come with the scarf AND hair and a hair color hud! And the skirt and skirt scarf in a set too. So you can have this full look! And of course there is an RFL color of Violet. Two RFL vendors contain the Violet and Hellabore colors. There are also the Sedge Shirts for men too. Also in 6 colors, with 2 RFL vendors of the Mulberry and Flax. You will find Dreaming Thicket (& kisetsu) on the Sanoria sim at Fantasy Faire.

The skin is from ND/MD - Zoe skin which is a new ethnic skin release at the Fantasy Faire. This skin comes with shapes and appliers. Appliers are for the Maitreya, Slink and Omega. The Shapes available for this skin are for the Lelutka - CATE and Catwa - LILLY mesh heads. I am not using the shape on my Catwa Uma, only the skin. You will find ND/MD on the Pool of Ethuil sim.

Makeup here is the *Booty's Beauty* - Catwa Makeup ~ Phenomenon (eyeshadow & lipstick) and lashes from the *Booty's Beauty* Catwa Eyeshadow & Lashes ~ Empress.
AVATAR BIZARRE - CHROME EYES - FLAME
These are the Avatar Bizarre - Chrome Eyes. These have been applied to my mesh eyes with the included Omega applier hud. There are also a set of mesh eyes in the box too which include a hud of the eye colors, 9 to choose from. They are quite large with roman numerals around the edges and what appears to be golden clock hands extending from the pupil. The color worn above is Flame, a very bright orange, veined color. You will find Avatar Bizarre on Sanoria.
CHIC BUILDINGS [Cb] - SPACE TIME ASTROLAB
What was the object of her relief? This strange statue that stands here across from the largest store on Sanoria. How she will access it is another story.

This item is the Chic Buildings - Space Time Astrolab. This was made for the Sanoria sim landscape and to spark some stories from those who visit this land. There are two sizes included in this package. You can find this item in it's environment on the Sanoria sim and in the Chic [Cb] store on the Sanoria sim. Both types of plants seen in the picture #1 are also from Chic Buildings [Cb].

You have until May 7th to visit the fairelands in all their beauty. The events are now over, but that just means it's a bit more quiet. And a lot less lag! You can start at the Fairelands Junction or teleport to any sim and at the landing points you should find the teleport hud to get you around to all the sims very easily. And, the shops are still around too!
