Design - Hunts - Building


A gazillion hunts are happening in February, most of them love (or hate) themed. I am pretty busy these days, most likely too busy to do many of them. I will definitely be watching other blogs for good looking items to search for though. With so many  February hunts to choose from, it seemed like a good idea to check out some of  my favorite hunt stops from other times. At the top of my list was Julia's. The official title is Julia's Collection Unique Furniture. It is a Victorian - Steam shop with some of my favorite themed furniture.

I found three hunt signs as well as a GIANT black cat (Greenie I think) on my arrival. And yes, Julia's will be in a February hunt. But the big, Big, BIG news is that there is a Steam Hunt 2 coming in March.  Woot! Woot! Woot!

Since I was at Julia's I took a quick trip upstairs to photography the intricately detailed kitchen that I spied in December. I had plans to go back for a photo shoot, but that didn't happen. So, here you go. I love it!  I have no place for it at the moment. My shops are doing very well but I am in studio only mode. Still, I have my super cute house from the last Steam Hunt and who knows what I will find this time out. Eventually I will get it all together. The time will be right and serendipity will come into play. A slot will appear in a steam community -- it will be so. Until then, storage is practical in our virtual world. 

OK, you may not be a Victorian, Steam, Tesla fan, but I am; the first Steam Hunt was definitely one of my most fun times. It doesn't start until March, and even though I have many events on my calendar at the moment, I will be counting the days. A second hunt that I am very interested in personally is the Builder's Hunt which also starts at the beginning of March. Its official title is the Building Blocks Gridwide Hunt.

Since I was now dressed in steampunk gear (sorry, no longer available), I zipped over to Builder's Brewery who was in the last Steam Hunt and who also might be (keeping fingers crossed) in the Building Blocks Hunt. I didn't find any signs, but since the hunts don't start for a month, I'll keep hoping. What I did find was a poster for somthing happening in FEBRUARY!
