Nostalgia


circa-001

This year has been a bit busier than what I remember it being previous years. I know in large it’s due to taking on more blogging commitments and I recognize that simply from the fact that I have yet to open a quarter of my arcade items that were purchased and not given to me as a blogger package.  I really have no problem with it. If I didn’t enjoy this I simply wouldn’t do it.

I also have not had time to unpack some of the advent or hunt gifts I find as I am always on the lookout for home and garden decor.  I find hunts are sometimes one of the best sources for me finding more one of a kind items or the unusual or even home decor stores I wasn’t aware of.

So last night I decorated a whole cottage with a bunch of Christmas decor mostly from decor items received from hunts, advent and group gifts and maybe a few other pieces bought or given through a blogger pack.  It gave me a feeling of nostalgia and a small dose of guilt of not doing it sooner.

Today I’m showcasing a new hair style by Tukinowaguma that’s available at Tres Chic. It’s a sweet and stylish updo that’s perfect for those holiday parties as is the Antonina dress by Fame Femme, that has a fun bow going down the open back that adds a little sexiness to the dress.  Both of these items can be found in different colors at the event.

The decor being featured is by [CIRCA], which are items in their Holiday Advent Tree. There is a group that you need to join, it’s the [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents (in-world) and it’s free to new members.  Each day items have been added to the squares on the wall tree near the inside entrance. Items do cost from $1 – $75 lindens and some even at $0 lindens.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get these items until a couple of days ago, so it’s a bit of a short notice and hopefully she will leave them out a bit longer as the group will be closing the Eve of Dec. 24th.  The wall strip art in red plaid is  available currently at the Midwinter Fair.

Edited: A note on the advent for [CIRCA].  The creator will be opening the advent for days 8-24 on December 24th, so you will still have time to grab anything you like from those days.
