A getaway where you can smell autumn in the breeze


DaD -029-2

I’m trying out a new theme.  I loved the previous one except the lettering was quite small, so lets see how this one works.

It’s hard to believe that autumn is almost here.  Not that I get to see much of the autumn season down here in my part of southern Florida.  Everything stays green all year long, while many parts of the country burst into colors of orange, red and yellow.  I don’t get snow either.  It’s one of the nice things about my Second Life… that I can enjoy the autumn and winter season whenever I want.  Not to mention the joy of setting it up and decorating in the way that I would love having it in real life.

DaD Designs is releasing a new build.  The Woodstock Cottage is like the perfect home to get away to and enjoy the season.  The rich dark brick and wood tones that make up this house just creates that warm and cozy atmosphere. There is so much included with this build that makes it such a great build to have, not to mention bargain.  The cottage  comes with several add on’s, such as the stone path with round central plant bush.  Ivy with leaves blowing in the wind and climbing bougainvillea that come in three colors.  Not shown are the stone walls that come in 4 designs.  It has several ample sized rooms and I really appreciate the high ceiling walls with the wood beams.  The gothic style windows and doors is a nice feature as well.  You can find the cottage at 20% off during the Fantasy Collective event, where it will be released. The event runs from August 22nd to September 15th.

The other items that I want to point out are the hydrangea bushes by Jian.  Like most if not all of Jian’s landscape products, these bushes also come with the all seasons hud to change the texture and color of the plant leaves and flower by the season you want.  Jian had also recently released this birdy home petunia planter for 25L Tuesday, but I was not able to blog it in time.  It’s a cute decor item that comes with a robin.

I was in the middle of decorating when a box hit my inventory and I got these new fall items by Shutter Field.  It was labeled as decor so I didn’t hesitate in opening and instantly knew that I would use some of the items in this scene. They were just perfect for what I had in mind.  I love the pumpkin in the basket decor! That just screams autumn season to me. The other items include the fall letters, the autumn frame on the table and the box of plants on the window seal. You can get a head start on decorating for autumn with these decor items.

I’ve blogged this dining set by [ARIA] before on it’s release, but I think it’s a perfect table for the upcoming season.  Especially, with the red chairs, which is one of several colors with the texture change option, so completely adaptable for other seasons.
