Well, That Escalated Quickly

1 Well that escalated quickly sm

Please tell me I’m not the only person who goes to a store to buy ONE THING and comes home with a house, decor items and a nearly empty wallet?

Yeah, that was my Thursday.

I saw a beach sign from hive while I was out grid-hopping that I just had to have. So I headed over to the main store, whispering the chant, “Please don’t let it be a gacha…PLEASE don’t let it be a gacha!” When I arrived, I heaved a sigh of relief that it wasn’t. So I bought it (well, I actually bought the fatpack of signs, but it was a STEAL!) Then, instead of doing the sensible thing and TPing out, I wandered. And yeah…there it was, with a shiny “NEW” sign on it…a gacha with the most delectable shabby chic STUFF. Before I could stop myself (like I really tried *rolls eyes*) I was dropping my L’s like a male stripper’s boxers on ladies night.

I really didn’t make out too badly. I hit the rare house on only the um…well, before I was broke. I was so thrilled that I hurried home, only to realise that with my new contemporary look, I had no place to put my pretty new things. With a heavy sigh, I scurried to my barren platform and started rezzing out my goodies. Oh, so pretty! Oh, so nice!

Oh, so empty…

Yeah, I had a half dozen things to place in the adorable little house, but it just felt so sparse. So, of course, that meant digging deep into my inventory for my favourites to fill the space: [ keke ], Kalopsia, {anc}, dust bunny, 8f8 and [ zerkalo ]. Throw in a couple of tables from {what next} and Meche, a rug from Apt B and a pair of puppies from Fawny and the look was complete. OK, I could have tossed in a few more things, but I was running low on prims, so I dusted off my hands, sighed happily and just admired my handiwork.

There is a big list of credits, but after all of that work, I wasn’t about to simply enjoy my little haven by myself. There is a mix of old and new – a virtual treasure trove of delights…

…that started with one lousy beach sign that didn’t even make it into the picture.
