I am nostalgic for those pre-pandemic Sunday afternoon strolls down main street, coffee in hand, stopping to smell the flowers (without a mask on) in a cute little floral shop. Slow, unhurried days like this are the best. I miss them. But faffing about with the absolutely stunning Blume set created by KraftWork & Pitaya for the current round of Epiphany, I was able to conjur up some of that energy for which I am nostalgic.
I am just going to go ahead and say this before we go any further. Get the whole set. It’s worth it. No BS. It is. Every single item in here you will use, and not just if you wanted to create the whole shop as I have here. Between the building, the flowers, the shelves, the pendant light, cute sink, vases, work tables, there is so so much that you will reuse in home settings, scene creation that splurging is worth it. SO….let’s take a closer look, shall we?
There are a ton of flowers in vases in this set! Each has an accompanying price card specifically for it. A nice touch. Now, if you are thinking of using these flowers in the home, you totally can. I’ve resized and unlinked several for different looks within the photos I took, something you could do for home decor as well.
The wrapping table with roses, paper and scissors seen in the image above is one of my favorite items. Also featured in this image are the sink and clutter from the set, as well as the work table (resized in the front window), hanging plants, vases, and display shelves.
The pendant light shown above is also included in the set and in that shot you can also see the slatted skylight in the ceiling of the shop, which lets in light and creates some lovely shadowing. The detailing on the boxes and bags is fabulous, and the moss of the hanging plants has that “you can feel it” look. Love it.
Fun extra for you: The mesh people you see in the images are by Himiko 3D and are available on the Second Life marketplace.
