Buon pomeriggio!!

Me again! Just completing the uploads of what I managed to do over my holidays. I present to you a quaint little cottage styled florist shop. This is Flo's Florist Boutique, named for a dear little old lady who lives at the retirement village in which I work. It is my first community upload and I think it's absolutely adorable so I thought I'd share it with you all.

So here it is - the lot:
Small (2 x 2)
$50, 472

I play this lot with my character Flo, who is true to form, a little old lady, whose husband unfortunately has passed away. She run's the store herself, with the aid of two teenagers, Sarah and Josh. Alternately one of my friends plays it with a young very attractive lady, who is the epitome of grace and fragility - a sort of Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady. But you of course can run it as you like. It looks stunning in photos and is always a pleasant sight when it pops in in the distance from whatever lot you may be playing.

To business - it is a community lot! As always, it is a fully furnished lot, featuring:
- Adequate display areas
- Bathroom for public use
- Two soil runs for display of trees for sale
- Two floristry work stations
- Break area

The custom content includes:

"Light Stain Wood Flooring" (floor tile recolour) by Nina
"Phone Recolour in White" by Brother Quintus
"Victorian Cash Register Recolour" by Crowe Ridges Studio
"Flowerism Blue Canvas" by Holy Simoly
"The Happy Browser Display" Collection by Holy Simoly
"Phonebooth Recolour in White/Green" by Imacloud
"Tulip Grove Weatherboard" Collection by Holy Simoly

All other furnishings are Maxis originals.

To heighten the use of this lot, I would recommend the following hacks:

The "Animated Window Hack" by Atavera
This enables you to open and close your windows. They make the shop seem much more airy and just lifts the atmosphere. It's a wonderful hack and really opens the store for you.

Also, the "All-placement 'Open/Closed' Sign" mod by Numenor
This is great. You can seriously put it anywhere!! Wonderful! I like it as a stand outside the store. Makes it seem more professional.

Anyway, that's about it from me today kids! I hope you enjoy the lot and thanks sooo much to all the fantastic skinners and meshers out there who continue everyday to deliver great work! Mwa!

Cheers kids!

Hey guys!

Wow. Kudos from such prominent members of the community. You wont believe how flattered I am.

No Mehrlicht, I haven't mentioned to Flo about my simming. She has trouble barely remembering my name so I think explaining the concepts of simulation and virtual worlds would be a little overwhelming from her. However she has told me she likes sunflowers, erego they feature as the only plants for decoration purposes on the upper level.

If the lot is beautiful, it's due of course to the wonderful talents of all the designers - meshers and skinners alike! I love showcasing their work!!

Thank you sooo much and keep an eye out for my resort, coming out soon.

Lots of love,
Penny Lee

Of course I can tell you! I'm nice!

The mesh you can find at VitaSims through the link below:

However I used that particular colour is a nifty recolour by Simply Elau which you can download here:

I hope you enjoy them, and if there's any other questions, don't hesitate to leave a note.

I really like it. When I click on the link it says "Animated Window Hack" by Atavera has been deleted?! Great job! So beautiful. :]

Kinda disappointing with this one because with it being a community lot, there is nothing to do. If this was a house with a home business, now that would be more interesting. I do love how you made this house but how do I make this house not a community lot and just move a Sim in this house for a home business?
