The Christmas Loft

I love making little cozy lofts.  The down covered bed and silky canopy are from Raindale's new Northsong Gocha as well as the coco mug, curtain and cabin.  I will feature the outside of the cabin in a post later in the week.  This collection can be found at the current round of Arcade.  I also used new releases from Old Barn Door's Farmhouse Christmas Items.  I included a wreath and a christmas tree in a tin.  It also comes with the option of a tree skirt.  I used a tinted a rug I had from Circa on the floor to keep my feet nice and warm.

The remainder of my items come from the 9th Annual SL Christmas Expo that benefits the American Cancer Society.  It not only has fashion items available, but a ton of home decor items.  You can find out more about the expo here https://slchristmasexpo.com/.  Featured are the 100% donation items from PurpleMoon, Fantasy China, Dekute Dekore, Junk Food, Spargel & Shine Homes and Naughty Bits.  Check out the links and descriptions below.

Night Wolf

The 9th Annual SL Christmas Expo opened today.   I found the perfect items for a cold winter's night scene.  I wanted to show you the animesh wolf wanderer by CKF Falconry and the great winter grass by The Velvet Moon.  Both of these items are 100% donation items. The following is the official press release on the event:

Believe in the Magic of Christmas, the 2019 SL Christmas Expo in support of the American Cancer Society opens across 12 regions Thursday, December 5th. The 9th Annual Expo runs for 10 days and concludes with the Annual Holidays of Hope Ball, Sunday Dec 15th. The Expo is dedicated to children with cancer, and this year will be providing 100% of its fundraising to help provide Virtual Reality Headsets to children undergoing treatment for cancer.

This year Linden Lab has joined the Expo, and will be revealing the 4th edition New Linden Homes, taking part in the popular Lights of Hope house decorating competition, introducing the first ever Ebbe Linden Bear and offering an epic ONE OF A KIND LINDEN HOME AUCTION including a 6 month Premium Membership with Exclusive Seasonal Content.

The region provides residents of Second Life® with support for survivors and caregivers, information and help with cancer and includes a direct text link to trained cancer specialists.  It will also be home to the Society’s virtual fundraising activities, Relay For Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer as well as areas for teams. The Catt Gable Memorial Garden is also undergoing a redesign and the Relay Museum will make its home on the region.  Annual Mega-Events, the SL Christmas Expo, Fantasy Faire, the Home & Garden Expo and the Sci-Fi Con, which support the Society, will also have areas at the new campus.  Check out all the information at their website:

First Coffee

I don't do anything in the morning without my cup, or two large cups I should say, of coffee.  Why should Second Life be any different.  So this morning I am patiently waiting on my SL coffee from the Messy Morning Set by Old Barn Door.  This is a great coffee corner set.  I did not include the pumpkins and instead added the banana hanger by Dust Bunny.  I am kept warm by my new Holiday Onesies by Virtue.

Cuddling In The Park

So the hubby set up this cute little Cosy Tent in Red by Shutterfield/Decor Junction at the park as a romantic gesture.  It can be located at this round of Cosmopolitan.  It comes with a ton of animations both single and solo as well as a few colors to choose from.  It looks so lovely set out there against the landscape by Felix.  This is the Mesh Autumn Wonderland which I absolutely love and I am excited it comes in winter.  Since I am using it in a park theme I placed the new Lightstorm Street Lamps along the path by Raindale.  They can be found at the current round of Access.  These lights also come with a hanging sign option that would be really cute at Christmas with old time photos placed in them.  See below for the shop ad.

In The Frost

I was doing some shopping in my my new outfit called Virginia in blue by Virtue trying to think where would be a good place for a photo opportunity.  This outfit is currently at the 2nd Chance Event.  I found a beautiful set up at the Disorderly sim where winter has settled in.  This outfit keeps me pretty warm due to the wool skirt and button down shirt.  It comes in a variety of color options.

Fall

What more can I say about fall.  I love all the colors that fall brings us.  The new Bohemian Autumn Outdoor Set by Dreamland Designs at brings all those fun fall colors to life.  It has fun patterns and colors while offering that bohemian feel we all love.  I tossed in some more little furry friends with their fall pumpkin cleaning by way of the Fall Forest Helper Mouse from Enchanted Fantasy.  Both these items and many more can be found at Swank.  To light our night after the sun goes down I placed Old Barn Doors new Garden Pathway Lights which also come with a snow capped option for winter.  All this blogging has made me tired so I am just going to sit right here for a while.
