Fae Real Estate Secrets

One thing I can tell you: I am no fan of complex puzzles, games that delight in making you lose (obviously gachas are an exception), So the truth is, I don’t do a lot of scavenger hunts.But when my friend (and I’m so honoured to call her that) Riven (yes, that Riven, of the whimsical and magical Rivendale), told me she had some items for the Twisted Hunt, and would I be interested in blogging them, I said, “Sure” without hesitation, because Riven‘s items are always wonderful to see and play with.

Gwyneth also has some homes to get ready for the influx of people into Faerie.

Gwyneth also has some homes to get ready for the influx of people into Faerie. This is one of those homes. It’s from the current round of The Arcade (mumble, mumble, gachas, mumble mumble, see above), made by 22769, a lovely little Victorian number that she thought would look great out on the edge of town, not far from the Book Forest.

Of course, Faeries are attracted to beauty, whether it be dark or light.

Of course, Faeries are attracted to beauty, whether it be dark or light. So there had to be a few accents to make the place attractive from the outside, before anyone ever passed the threshold.

That’s where these rose trellises come in!

That’s where these rose trellises come in! Riven did such a lovely job with them, and the wood textures on them matched so well with the wood accents on the house that I knew at once where I wanted to put them.

And, as the Fae world moves into Autumn, splashes of colour become more and more important. It’s one reason why I chose these !go! boots from a past Fantasy Gacha Carnival for Gwneth; their green makes her happy against an otherwise quiet ensemble, colour-wise, for her. It’s also why I chose this lush hair from the talented mind of Truth Hawks (Natalie, currently at Uber), so that she’d have a little bit of summertime lingering around her.

The trellis set includes an arch, a wide trellis, and a narrow one.

The trellis set includes an arch, a wide trellis, and a narrow one, and it’s all copy/mod, so you could put together a whole country garden based around this hunt prize.

The narrow arches perfectly balance the wider side of the house.

Of course, just grass and rose trellises were looking a little empty….

…so Gwyneth had Bran and Kern lug some of The Plastik‘s Dragon Benches into the front garden, as well. It makes this house look more like a home, somewhere any contemporary Faerie would want to put down their own roots in.

All in all, the house exterior now looks so much more complete!

But who can resist the pull of Fae Roses after dark?

But who can resist the pull of Fae Roses after dark? It’s as if little Wisps come to float around them, giving the garden that special, magical glow that makes for the perfect home.

And then of course there’s the beauty of the individual flower.

And then of course, there’s the beauty of the individual flower. Worth contemplating, touching (but not plucking!), losing oneself in.

Ah, if only Gwyneth didn’t have so much more to do. I know she could contemplate these roses for hours if there weren’t so many things pulling her in so many directions.

Oh, well. Some lucky Faerie will get to live in this house and enjoy these roses every single day. And that’s enough to call Gwyneth’s work here finished.
