Decorating for the season

Lots of great Christmas decor around the grid whatever your taste.  I’ve only been to a fraction of the events that are ongoing.  As usual you will find the complete list of everything that is being shown and just a few of the places you can find home decor for the holiday season.

Have a great one!

Cozy and warm places

Good morning!

I’ve got more awesome goodies to show you today.  I’m featuring Architect today, which is a new sponsor.  They are participating in 6th Republic with the Kronos gacha set, which I’m linking you to his Flickr so you can see the key to the set.  It’s a beautiful lake house with several decor pieces that make for a great home for this time of year.  I cannot wait to showcase more of this creator’s work, so stay tuned for more in the near future.

I’m also showcasing the decor deer right in front of the fireplace.  They are by Madras and currently at Limit8 a couple or so days more.  They are available in a few colors, and really great decor pieces that can be sized up or down for either indoors or outdoors.

I need to point out  a couple of things in my picture, so there is no confusion if you happen to look at credits to find something.  The standing plant by the windows is actually two plants combined. The text framed photo is actually three frames combined as is the wreaths around the deer head.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Life is art, live your colors

Good morning! Having not felt great the last two days, I for one will be glad when the weekend gets here.  The work week has been busy, and considering its been that way since I first started with this firm I don’t think it’s going to get any better.  I thrive in busy environments, just means that I’m always rushing.

Today I am showcasing the built-in kitchen skybox by Hive.  The kitchen part is not shown, but I’ll be showing it again with a post either tomorrow or the next day as I’m doing another kitchen scene.  It’s absolutely gorgeous, especially if you want the main feature to be your kitchen.  The Fulwood Collection made up of the sofa, chairs, the three color cabinets, rugs and so much more and all listed below is by Apple Fall.  Everyone knows his quality is top notch and this set is pretty spectacular.  Both Hive and Apple Fall items are to be found at Uber this round.

To complete the scene I am using some items from Mesh India from their Easter gacha, currently at Cosmopolitan. Everything else is listed below.

Have a great one!

It’s a bit of a hodgepodge.

I’m having one of those weekends where my Second Life leaves a lot to be desired. I know that I’m not alone in this — we’ve all experienced issues in the recent days. Yesterday I had inventory and rezzing issues and no one I knew seemed to be having them, so I feel a bit special.  Of course it’s always at an inopportune time. Like when you have a few dozen of boxes you need to unpack.

Thankfully, today seems a bit better so I was able to get a picture done.  I have to admit that I struggled a bit putting this scene together. I’ll borrow DRD’s words from their current release — it’s a bit of a ‘hodgepodge’.

I hope you have a great Sunday!

Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres

Hello everyone… it’s a bit late now to say TGIF (thank God it’s Friday) as the day is almost gone.  I’m still glad this week is over as it was horrendously busy for me and I could use the rest even if I’m putting in a few hours tomorrow just to try and catch up.

Today I’m bringing you some more great stuff from the Arcade and The Liaison Collaborative that opens tomorrow.

Stay tune for more home and garden decor!

The time of lace tablecloths and doilies

I have fond memories of lace tablecloths and lace doilies strewn around our home as well in both set of grandparents homes as I was growing up.  It gave a touch of elegance and no doubt it was also a means to protect the wood underneath. Well it did in our family, as it couldn’t have been easy for my mom with eight children. Being we are all just one or two years apart in age you can perhaps imagine what a house full of children running around could be like.  Just writing these words gives me an overwhelming admiration and respect for my mom.

Once again DRD has outdone themselves with the January Shadowbox.  I’m featuring the light version items, which as you can see are amazing.  I encourage you to visit the DRD website for more information on how you can subscribe.  This is the last set in Series o1 and if you’ve purchased the whole set you will have received the bonus, which I will be showcasing next. I was going to do them in this one post, but I felt it was too beautiful and needed to be shown separate.

So stay tuned!
