Looks like the odds are stacked against me.


Odds stacked against me

I really enjoyed creating this scene and when I was done it reminded me a little of the cabin that my family rented several years ago in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to spend one of our Christmas holidays.   The long tall windows that gave way to the spectacular panoramic views to the Great Smoky Mountains.  The open floor plan that had leather and hide furniture just like these chairs and sofa from Scarlet Creative and a massive fireplace in the living room.

It makes me sigh and long for another vacation like that one where life seemed less complicated and much easier.  I probably wouldn’t select Christmas week as the time to go as trying to drive in the heart of town was pretty much bumper to bumper traffic.  That’s never fun.  Personally, part of the the whole beauty of renting a cabin in the mountains is being able to seclude yourselves without the need to go anywhere that wasn’t within walking distance.   It’s a home away from home. You have to be mindful of the wild animals that you could run into if you do take a walk… like black bears and foxes.  Plus you have to be comfortable driving up an incline, because that was probably the most tedious part of leaving and returning to the cabin.   The steep narrow road we had to travel on had all sorts of twists and turns and could be quite scary, especially if there was ice.

The Men’s Department was a bit different this time around with lots of fun stuff being gacha items like the beer bottle Christmas tree and the poker setup.  I did modify some of the poker items by unlinking them for placement.
