COURTESAN UPSTAIRS SITTING ROOM

Peace On Earth Hunt 9 featuring Zen Creations

zen-creations-poe8-hunt_010

It is,  once again, our favorite season in Second Life…PEACE ON EARTH HUNT SEASON!!!! Can you believe that this marvelous hunt has been going on for 9 years now!!! In keeping with the traditions of the hunt, and the sheer joy of giving, that allows all to obtain some of the best designs and creations for free, to everyone who wish to hunt. In Second Life, it is easy to forget that all do not have the financial means to buy this or that, due to real life financial circumstances. Many, many designers, because of this and their love of others,  have contribute their time, immense talents, and designs/creations, so that all avatars, if they wish,  can have great clothing, accessories, and things for home, for the price of the time it takes to find their awesome gift!  Zhoie Zimmerman, of Zen Creations, a very gifted, extremely talented, generous to a fault, and as sweet as apple pie, is one such designer!

***Exclusive*** Casa Limited Edition Pavilion by Kaerri

CASA LIMITED EDITION PAVILION_001 ADJ

Have you been to the tony upscale Casa, where those in the know shop? Kaerri has introduced and have on display, at Casa, Casa Limited Edition Pavilion & Furniture. This very chic set incudes everything to make your outdoor entertaining a fabulous and pleasurable experience!

CASA LIMITED EDITION PAVILION_007adj1

Do you see yourself and your guests seated upon the gloriously colored, yellow and white floral striped, mixed print cushion pavilion couch? As you catch up on gossip you lean across to sniff the beautiful vase of Daisies, that you placed on the pavilion tables. Such a scent of summer, you just can’t get enough!  You look across and see your little ones trying to climb up to get to the amazingly realistic, brilliantly hue Fish lights with the Bubble Lights Set, as you had warned them about turning them on and off!

CASA LIMITED EDITION PAVILION_014adj1

You smile that special hostess smile of pride, as you notice the budding romance that is playing out, right before your eyes, on the yellow and white striped alcove built in settee, next to the lit fireplace, hoping that they are enjoying the tray of wine, and scented candles, you place there for them.

CASA LIMITED EDITION PAVILION_004adj1

You see a couple of older teenagers poking and laughing, at your Brass Caged Talking Parrot and hope that they do not knock over the Hibiscus Planter in their jostling of one another and wonder if you should go over there.

CASA LIMITED EDITION PAVILION_003adj1

As you are walking over to take the yellow Hurricane Lantern from the Patio Table, so you can begin to serve lunch, you notice that someone has dropped a coke can in the single Shrub Planter on the side of your bird. You send your partner to get more yellow and white floral stripe stools for the table and decides you need another table as well.

CASA LIMITED EDITION PAVILION_002adj1

As you walk around your pavilion, talking to your guests and seeing to their comfort, one inquires about your Triple Plant and Lily Planters, how healthy and great they look and wish to know your secret for their care, as hers always dies. You smile, as you bend over to retrieve a small one’s little gym shoe from the single Palm Planter as you divulge family secrets and get more gossip!

CASA LIMITED EDITION PAVILION_013adj1

CASA LIMITED EDITION PAVILION_012adj1

Everything you see, in this, leisurely chic, comfortable and inviting, Pavilion is included! There are so many furniture placement arrangements, you can come up with, that will be pleasing to your eye and suit your very discriminating taste.

Such a wonderful afternoon of entertaining can be yours when you purchased this very limited in number,  Casa Limited Edition Pavilion by Kaerri!
