It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

You could say that I’ve moved off the fall pictures into winter and it’s certainly another of my favorite seasons to take photos of.  I don’t get snow in real so it’s something that I like to enjoy in Second Life and thankfully there is no shoveling of snow required.

This scene was put together using the newest home release by DaD Designs, available now at District 20.  Below credits is all the details on what you can expect with the purchase of the Woodpecker Cottage.  I’ll be showing the inside in another post, so stay tuned for more.

Just in time for getting your home all decorated for Christmas is the new winter decorations by Dust Bunny at Tannenbaum.  As I was decorating the outside of the home I couldn’t help and chuckle as it brought back memories of doing this in real. It’s been a few years since we’ve done this kind of elaborate outdoor decorating, but there is something quite magical and fun when you drive up at night and your house is all lighted up in an array of Christmas colors.  These decorations are quite awesome and so realistic and fantastic for indoor and outdoor.

I’m also showcasing some new garden chairs by Concept}.  There is a total of 4 chairs in different colors. They each have a land impact of 5, are copy and mod and hold single and couple animations. Available now at Shiny Shabby.

The last item is a new release by Little Branch. The Choke Berry tree is 4 seasons, which means that on a click you get the menu that allows you to choose which season you want your tree.  It’s now available at SaNaRae. Plus I want to mention that Little Branch has reopened it’s in-world store and it’s a pretty awesome build.  Unfortunately, my computer couldn’t handle the sim and it kept freezing when I visited.  If I get a chance to visit again I’ll snap some pictures to show, but take a visit and enjoy the sim and all the wonderful landscape.

Have a great one!

Woodpecker Cottage:
Footage: 21,8×25,0
Land Impact: 146
Copy/modify yes (script are not mod)
No transfer

The ‘WOODPECKER COTTAGE’ is a beautiful Victorian Cottage perfect for all locations.

The cottage is composed with a large veranda. As you enter the front doors your greeted the Main room which is perfect as your living room. On the sides of the living room there is 2 other rooms with big sliding doors.

Another door to go on little balcony.

The windows of the whole house can be opened and closed which are arranged in different heights to create the most natural look.

Something so great about all DAD DESIGN ‘homes’ is that you can customize your home so easy. All you need to do is find the button that is in the room and touch it. There is over 74 pre-loaded textures and you can change it by each room. Also you can change the color of the exterior walls and the texture of the floors.

Breakfast for dinner anyone?

Happy Monday!! It already feels like a long day for me and it’s just pass the noon hour so I still have hours to go before giving it a rest.  I’ll just get write into telling you about this wonderful spread of goodies I am showing today.  The house I’m using is the Gilley Lake House by Thistle, for the August round of Builder’s Box.  I know I’m not showing much but a corner, but I promise that I’ll be showing more in a coming soon post.

Apple Fall has released some kitchen clutter that is absolutely perfect and just so ridiculously realistic that you want to bring it home with you, even my real one! Take a peek at credits to see the newer items, they won’t be hard to miss.  I’m also showing items from this round of The Season’s Story that complements the scene. A few items from the Autumn Breakfast Gacha by Disorderly and Autumn table setting by Dawn Home & Decor as well as the Autumn lantern by Violetility. You get the theme?  It’s all about Autumn right now, so go take a look at all these wonderful things to help you celebrate the season.

As always everything shown new and old is listed in credits.

Como la flor

One of the fun things when doing decor scenes is being able to find items that blend and fit well together. I think of it almost like being a world traveler and finding odds and pieces that you like or perhaps it’s the oddly shaped piece that has been in the family for generations.  It can be quite challenging too, perhaps especially on days when you need to get something done and you don’t feel very creative or motivated.

I was tipping the scale on the not so motivated and feeling creative when I put this together and yet I’m pleased with the final result showcasing a mixture of fashion and home decor from all over the grid. Take a look at credits to get the full list of everything shown.

Celebration

This is a fun post to show the surprise that my Brazilian twin gave me for my birthday. It was the sweetest thing and we really had fun and as you can see the wine went to our heads below.

Go check out her pictures on her awesome blog and flickr where you can get all the credits for the decor and what she is wearing and her little one is wearing. I will update my post soon with what I am wearing and my little one is wearing.

Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!

Updated with credits and a new picture… to show the funny things we did after the little ones went.  The  poor animals just looked at us.

Thank you for the lovely surprise Lotus.. it meant a lot to me. ♥

Also.. to complete my birthday celebrations I want to give a shout out to Exis and Jules, for inviting me out dancing.  I had a fabulous time!!

There’s no place I rather be than home

When I got this skybox to blog the first thing that caught my eye was the design. My mind started to think of how I could decorate it, to create a living space without a big emptiness in the middle and keeping in mind the view from the windows.  You can see it without the furniture below. That’s where I challenged myself to completely decorate it and hoping that I would have enough prim to do so. It’s mesh and the quality of the textures are very good. It’s by Dubu and available now at SaNaRae until October 18th.

The other items that are being featured today are some of the decor pieces in the room.  Some of the plants on the table and on the stairs are by .aisling. and are available at the Fantasy Collective.  There are two sets: the Mandragorae includes four versions with texture change via menu and Herbae includes three versions with texture change via menu as well.  Each plant is only 1 land impact.

The vase in the table with twigs and the book near it sitting on top of some other books are by Serenity Style and at LTD The Event.  Unfortunately, it is the last round for this event as it was unexpectedly announced to us yesterday.  I’ve included vendor pictures of both the plants and the items by Serenity below credits so there is no confusion.

The remaining pictures with the one on top of this text and below are so that you can see the details and quality of the skybox.

snapshot_015

My credits lists is huge and while I tried my best to stay in some particular order I might have gotten distracted and wandered from side to side as I copied and pasted. Though as always, if you want to know about any particular item, please don’t hesitate to contact me via comments, in-world or even flickr.

Have a great Tuesday otherwise!
