Retro and Vintage

This months theme for The Challenge is "Retro - Vintage" and that covers lots of territory. It was fun to see what the adjectives meant to different folks. I imagine some nostalgia came into play along the way.

Here are the full of the designs. See the whole list here.

That Prim Thing

It's the end of the month and while there are venues beginning I am in waiting mode in order to make 'the best' post I can.

So rather than leave the blog empty, here's what I have been thinking.

WHY am I still receiving very lovely but extremely primmy items? Mesh is no longer new news. According to the wiki (an interesting walk down Memory Lane) mesh went gridwide August 23rd 2011 -- so almost three years.

Today I opened a release package with some furniture. Pretty; nicely textured. I went to put it into a rustic house to find that the land impact was six times (or more) than what I had expected. I put it back into inventory and may indeed just delete it. I have houses that have fewer "prims".

On the plus side (happily there is almost always one), today -- by happenstance, I found a great place for low prim vehicle props. Most of the vehicles there can't be driven but I don't want to drive them anyway. I simply want them for backdrops.

This "Old Ford" weighs in at 4 land impact and delivers plenty of ambiance for that low number. I also picked up a taxi at 2 li (TWO!), saving myself 9 points each over the ones I had rezzed a year ago.  Several very nice props (taxis included) are free at the shop. I have my eye on a harvester for the half sim country road. There are also plenty of industrial and war items if that is your thing.

The place is ArmyStone's TOTAL - DESTRUCTION.

After 6 Days

Another new venue has appeared -- and I bet you aren't surprised.

This one has a twist however, and I will let you read about the intricacies at the official website.

Baiastice has a big selection of mix and match tops and skirts as offerings. Both prints and plains are represented; the blouse comes with and without feathers. Well I love feathers, so it was an easy choice for me.

There is also an angelic French horn as a welcome gift and a stellar photo op area right next door :D.  So definitely journey over!
