Blue Willow Tea Set in SL

I haven't had as much time to work as I'd like, the last few months. We bought a house at the end of February, and have been renovating it. (Well, mostly having it renovated. Contractors have done most of the work, but I've had to be there while they did, so time-wise it's much the same.) Currently we are moving all our stuff to the new house, one car-load at a time, so it's taking forever.

However, I've managed to get a bit of work done, here and there!

One of the things I've finished is a new tea set for Second Life®. It's the Blue Willow china pattern, which is one of the oldest and most recognizable china patterns still in production. I reinterpreted the design from an antique plate, and made cups, the teapot, sugar bowl, creamer, spoons and napkins, all nicely arranged on a tray!



This very special pattern has a legend attached to it. I've retold that, too; a copy is included with the tea set.

Like my other tea sets, you or anyone in your group can serve tea by touching the tray, or clean it up by touching it again. (It's a toggle.) If any of you touch the napkin, you can change the embroidered design. (There are 3 to choose from.)

Anyone who touches the luncheon plate gets their own plate of petit fours to hold. Anyone who touches the teapot gets their own steaming cup of tea to sip, and a saucer to hold in their left hand. (All the animations are built in, of course.)

If you touch the cup while you're drinking tea, you get a menu of tea choices ranging from Earl Gray, through Jasmine, chai, and 9 others.

The pot and plate give endless cups and servings of petit fours; so you can rest assured that all your guests will have as much tea as they care for.

Available in Blue (as shown) Black, Green and Red. (All the traditional colors.) If you want to see all the colors, or all the embroidery patterns on the napkins, please visit the Blue Willow Tea Set page on my website. L$450, transfer only (no copy, no mod.) Available from XStreet or from my Home and Garden Store on Livingtree. (If you go there, you can try out the demo!)

Enjoy!
