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.

The road home always leads back to you

Morning!! I don’t have much time, but I really do want to point out a few things with some of the items.  One, this new sofabed by Cheeky Pea is just too awesome.  Growing up I’ve had my share of sleeping in sofa roll out beds at extended family homes or even in our own as we had one of these too. The sofabed can be used as just a sofa or you can pull out with a click and make it into a bed, which is what I’m picturing.  It’s available in both adult and pg version and to see the options, visit here to see the vendor ad. It’s such a great feature to have.  The sofabed set can be found at Uber.

I’m wearing some new fashion by Scandalize, the babydoll lingerie is available at the Kinky Event in several colors. With it I’m wearing new shoes by Empire, available at Shiny Shabby.  As always, a great price for a pair of shoes that comes with hud that gives you 12 colors.

To complete the scene I am using several items from the Bruja gacha set by {Petite Maison}, which is available at Cosmopolitan Event for a few more days.  It’s an awesome elegant set that you can utilize in my decor settings.

Have a fabulous day!!

The little moments with my twin from another mother…

Hello everyone! A new week and a day away from a whole new month — aren’t you excited? I am.  This month wasn’t one of the best and it will be good to put it behind.

Today’s  post is another collaboration with Lotus Mastroianni, fellow blogger and friend that call each other twins, hence the title.  It’s not because we look alike as she’s pretty light skinned and I’m pretty tanned as we both are in real life too.  Though from the time we met and began to share certain facts about our different Latin cultures and familial backgrounds we found some commonality and ever since she made me her Mexican twin.  If you don’t know her work, you really ought to check it out as she’s extremely talented.

Check out credits below for everything shown and have a fabulous rest of the day!!

Fright Night

Happy Friday!! The month is also coming to a close and with it, if you’re into it, Halloween is coming up. There is plenty of home and garden decor available if that’s something you like and would enjoy decorating for. The Hive has the Fright Night gacha at the Epiphany, which the key can be found here.

Zerkalo has the Dark Elegance gacha at Shiny Shabby, and you can view the gacha key here.  If that’s not enough then THOR also has the Dark Collection (pic here), which is a mixture of new and old items that have been revamped and re-textured to fit the theme.  Bee Designs also has lots of Halloween themed items at their store as well as the items shown that are available at Salem for a few more days. You can see the vendor ad here for the items being featured.

As you can see lots of great quality spooky and spectacular things you can find around the grid.  Anyway, that’s it for now.  I wish you all a great start to your weekend!!

My red dress

My routine before I start to blog for the day is to check Flickr and so to find it was down this morning I felt like I couldn’t quite function. It’s back up now.  Though it has me thinking how easy we depend on things like this and then when it’s removed we lose a little of our footing.  Two pics for the price of zero today.

It’s a mixed post of fashion and decor.  The hair and dress both can be found at this new round of Tres Chic, which goes on until 5 November.  The boots are by Empire and are at the main store now.


The washing machine, faucet and small restroom building is by Anhelo, and a previous Fifty Linden Friday, that I didn’t get to blog during that time.  Eventually when I’m able to I try to utilize it in some way and today it served as a great backdrop for this picture, but it’s fantastic pieces for any outdoor decor.

The Skippy scooter is by Serendipity Style is a gacha item at Shiny Shabby.

Well as I finish this I just learned Flickr is down again.

Have a great one!!

Against the grain

It’s going on 2 pm eastern time and I’ve yet to get this blog post done. It’s not a hard post as you can see. The credits are fairly short and yet it feels like I’ve taken hours to get it finished and it has been since I started at around 11 am. Anyways, its good to be back after a short weekend of non-blogging.  I’ve got plenty of stuff to show in the coming days so while not totally refreshed as the break wasn’t that long I’m ready to go full speed again.

Enjoy the rest of your Monday!

Well not much to say this afternoon as I’m literally here only to publish this post and then I’m out the door.  I’ll return to normal some day soon. Maybe. Normal is boring right?

Until then.. have a great one!
