Winter Cottage

While Christmas has come and gone it does not mean that we must pack up all snow related items.  Raindale has a great section of winter cottages.  This is the Longhaven Cottage* that comes with or without snow and lights.  I paired it with the Winter Wonder Sled Set 2* from CJ Creations and Thanio Designs White Forest* from this round of Swank.  Tomorrow is the last day of this round of Swank so make sure you head over to grab these great finds before they moved to the main stores.  I also picked up some great frosty grass form Two Moon Gardens.

Cozy Snow Day

I have not posted in a bit since a real life cold virus invaded my house about two weeks ago.  The whole house was under the weather and it has taken a while for everyone to feel better.  We are still on the mend but the kids are back to arguing and disagreeing instead of clinging to me, so I know they are starting to feel better.

Christmas preparations are well underway in both worlds with just a few days to finish up your shopping, decorating and wrapping. Virtue just released the perfect winter day outfit called Daisy.  It is a thick knit turtleneck with coordinating leggings.  The set can be worn separately.   I found a nice cozy spot to sit in my new Vellard Lounger by Raindale which comes with a great color hud and wonderful animations.  I don't know if I will post again before Christmas.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Shabby Chic Bedroom

This is the shabby chic bedroom I promised that accompanies my previous post of the shabby chic sitting area post I did yesterday.  I have some more of my favorite designers to showcase today.  Decor Junction/Shutterfield released the Ski Stands Coat Rack and Sleds bench at TennenbaumRaindale seems to be all over second life with new releases this month.  I used a couple of items from the Hollyfrost Gacha found at The Liaison Collaborate as well as the Joyeux Set which can be found at Tlalli.

I also used a bunch of decor from Casa de Bebe.  This includes Raziel's Secret Chamber Sleigh Bed.  It has beautiful angel wings on the sleigh headboard and is done in shades of white and cream.  I just want to melt into this bed.  My colorful Elf Tree from Mindgarden Creations and Christmas Gifts in Sled by Park Place add that holiday touch to the room.  All of these items can be found at this round of Swank.

Shabby Chic Sitting Area

I put together a really nice shabby chic room.  I am going to show it to you in two posts.  This first post is the sitting area in the room.  It is full of shabby chic Christmas decor from a few of my favorite stores.  Old Barn Door has a ton of Christmas items out that can be added easily into your holiday decor stash for those little touches.  Casa de Bebe released a new set out at Swank that just screams shabby chic and comes with beautiful chairs and a magnificent bed that I will post about tomorrow.  Evolving Images released a ton of christmas wreaths and themed trees at this round of Swank as well.  That little dog just steals my heart.

Tropical Vacation

All this snow made me want to go back to a nice warm island.  I took a little break from winter to visit the island.  Evhah just released a really cute Tower Set which has tons of poses.  Dictatorshop has put out the Cove Rocking Bench also with tons of poes and is part of a larger set.  Keep an eye on them as they keep releasing new pieces.  Both of these new releases can be found at the current round of Swank.

Lights of Hope Decoration Contest

The9th Annual SL Christmas Expo is still going strong until the 15th.  I visited the  Lights of Hope Decoration Contest to check out all the wonderful homes that had been decorated.  I was dressed in the finest fashion available at the event for a casual stroll along the lane.  I took my photo inside Potomac Signature Homes.  My top from Drac tells the truth when it says this mama is tired.  My ever so cute pants from Hot Elegant Clothing are very warm.  I added a cute animated bento scarf by Dream Addition DAS to complete strolling outfit.  I hope to see you at the Expo.

Enchanted Wedding

We wanted an enchanted wedding and that is what we received.  The whole screen seemed to radiate a white warmth.  The Altar from Sam's Studio was perfect for the minister and out small bridal party.  It even has poses included and is currently at the SL Christmas Expo.  The bridal party said their goodbyes and we had a romantic dinner for just the two using the Romantic Xmas Table by BS House.  It includes animations and food/beverages as well.  The ambiance included Pine trees by Old Barn Door and Winter Fairy Moon Set by Enchanted Fantasy which can be found at the current round of Swank.

Holiday Music Room

I put together a little holiday music room in my house for winter.  The piano and bench by Vidarr's Legacies plays festive holiday music.  The puppy by Naughty Bits seems to want to get into trouble and is part of  the Naughty List Decor Set.  I included twinkling lights by Aluora to make it magical.  These items are part of the 9th Annual SL Christmas Expo.  Check out all the activites and events happening here:   My little cottage I used is by Raindale as well as the curtain which I tinted.  You can read all about it in my previous Christmas Loft Post.

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.

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.

No Friends

I was walking around Swank when my real life daughter who is four woke up from nap and came to sit in my lap.  I was looking at all the display's seeing what I wanted to blog when I stopped my camera upon the The Autumn Guardian by HarshLands.  She told me that he was sad because he had no friends.  I promised her when I blogged this piece that I would give him a few friends.  So the wise old owl came out of her den to chat for a while and cheer up the guardian.

Frosted Forest

I woke up this morning and our little house in the hills where we stay to get away from it all had frosted over and turned into winter during our sleep.  We know a storm was predicted in a few days, but it must have came early.  Our Smallbury Hut was constructed by Raindale with the utmost care.  You can find the same one at this round of We Love Role-Play.  The hut is 45Li in default size.  You can switch between summer and winter styles via HUD.  I also spotted some fox and a pair of rabbits out the window on the rocks.  These are crafted by TM Creations for the current round of Swank.  They also come with a weather hud.

Magnus and I were on a stroll through the forest when this romantic little chestnut stand appeared.  There was a romantic little hut and a bench for us to sit upon.  The fall foliage is in abundance.  A new round of Swank just started and it is packed full of autumn goodness.  I used creations from Mindgardens Creations and BS House.

Day Of Rest

Sunday is a great day to rest.  My resting place is tranquil and the perfect spot to just relax and reflect from one busy week into the next.  It seems life is picking up and not slowing down.  Old Barn Door is where most of these furnishings came from.  I used the new Farmhouse Entryway Set and Cierra Curtains.  I also mixed in some of their older released stuff to finish the looks.  I love how their designs can be combined for something new and fresh.

Fall Barn

Just because Halloween is over does not mean we have to pack up all the wonderful fall decorations.  The new Roll In The Hay Barn set from Old Barn Door is a perfect place for fall cuddles while watching the horses.  This set includes the rustic stables, animated horse, stable lights, lantern, wagon wheel, bento hay bale and the hay cuddle blanket.  I also added the Julia Table from Dreamscapes Art Gallery that contains some treats and fall decor.  This is a perfect place to spend a lazy day.

I am all decked out for a whirlwind day of shopping!  Of course my shopping addiction happened before my photo since my outfit and purse are new.  Sexy Princess just released the Lauren Dress at the Curves Event that runs until tomorrow.  I also hit up Designer Showcase where I found my purse and pose set by Image Essentials named showbags.  Now that I am all glammed up I am ready to hit the town or at least the Second Life Grid.

Gemma died in childbirth.  Little did she know that the father of her child was part vampire.  The little bugger clawed his way out of him mom.  Her husband is beside himself with grief so he sought a witch who animated the dolls to care for the child as time slowly ticked by.

Disaster Awaits

I went for a short walk through the trees.  As I went further I lost my way.  It began to grow increasingly dark and cold.  I pushed on through the eerie feeling hoping to escape the cause of the darkness.   When I stumbled upon the cause I was in shock.  Due to the sheer number of them I could not get around.  They knew I was there so I had to be fast at I dashed into the mausoleum and slammed the doors.  Can I keep them at bay and be saved.  Find this and more at Swank.

Before dinner I thought I might play a little piano for my company.  I had just got done playing when someone asked to take my photo.  I guess they liked my new outfit that I picked up from this round of Designer Showcase.  The Sylvie Dress is from Legendaire which means it has a great color hud with lots of different style choices.  The same goes for Moondance Boutique's Delphine Jewelry.  So here is a peek into my home on this wonderful Sunday.

A new round of Swank just opened.  It has everything you need from delightful fall decor to down right scary Halloween.  I'm not big into spooky things so I decided to go with more fall decor.  Thaino Designs put out a ton of new exclusive items including the cabin, the sunflowered fence, the grave and the fall ladders.  I also pictured The Fall Deck from Evhah.  It come set up with all the decoration on and around it.  This includes the tree with rocks on the left, the cattails, and the grass with flowers on the left.  So head over to Swank and check out all the new wonderful items.

Out Shop Breast Cancer Fairy

I love blogging for events.  I take different things and put them together for a wonderful picture. Today's photo brought together things from Out Shop Breast Cancer.  I am wearing the elegant Nelia Gown which comes with a choker from Donni's Dolly.  I paired it with the beautiful Golden Glass Bento Animesh wings in Dawn Gem an Uncommon from Eclectic Muse.  I also incorporated the Cherished Hanging Bench in Pink from Simply Shelby into the scenery.

Fall Coffee Shop

Fall is absolutely beautiful and it should be the same in Second Life.  Here is a fall coffee shop that I just had to share.  I love all the pops of color.  Most of this scene is from Raindale's new Dawnwood Collection at Lootbox.  I also used a few things from the Out Shop Breast Cancer Event.  These include the Warrior Wall Hanging by The Reckless Angel and the Pretzel Vendor by Balaclava

Out Shop Cancer PJ Party

I spent my Sunday in bed with my new super comfy Daphne PJ's by Rebellious Rose.  I have my cuddly Plusieh Rhino by Dark Fairy Fashions & Art and just needed to be careful of my wet manicure from  Touryuumon: Maho Sukuroru while holding him.  All of these items are part of the Out Shop Breast Cancer Event.  You may be wondering what that is so here is some information from the press release:

Cup Of Tea

This is the most inviting place for a cup of tea.  I love the Gypsy Soul Collection from Granola that is out this round of Arcade.  I used it in a unique Calypso Moon Treehouse by Mindgardens Creations.  The demo and it's custom furnishings (not pictured) can be found at Swank.  Both of these events are wrapping up soon, but I bet you can find these at the creators shops after that.

Living Room Bliss

Today I combined two of my favorite designers in one space for this warm and inviting living room look.  Old Barn Door just released a huge collection of living room furniture called the Magnolia Collection.  Some of the collection is not pictured it's that large.  I love that it is a while collection and you can mix in any other colors you want into the look without it clashing.  I mixed Raindale's exclusive from the Spoonful Of Sugar into the living room.  The Beaumaris Collection is 100% exclusive for the festival and will not be sold after the event is over, so if you want it grab it while you can.
