Treasures of the heart

I hope that your Christmas was peaceful and joyous and above all else safe. Mine was thankfully and I’m grateful for many blessings, especially that all six of my siblings were here and some of their children.  There was plenty of food, laughter, games and each moment something we can all treasure.  I also got to spend time with someone very dear and close to my heart.  It made the perfect ending to a wonderful day.

It’s been a long time coming.  I’m taking a break from blogging for what remains of this year and also going into the new year until the end of January. I will be around just not posting.

As the year ends I also want to say thank you to each of you my followers, who views, likes my pictures or even reads what I write.  I’m very thankful to each of you as you’re part of the reason that I enjoy the scene making and the picture taking.  Speaking of which I am showcasing the amazing gacha collection by 8f8, who has outdone himself again.  Every single pieces is beyond gorgeous and so worth having it in your own decor collection.

On a final note — Happy New Year!  See you in 2019! ♥

Running late.

Things are bit wild at my house right now.  Some of us doing last minute shopping, others baking and prepping for tonight and tomorrow in between all the other stuff that needs to get done.

Though I wanted to take the time to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas.  May your time be filled with joy, warmth and blessings.  Please be safe throughout.

Everything for my scene is listed below, so check out the credits.  I will not be posting again until after Christmas.

The guest house

I spotted this house on Flickr and was immediately drawn to it because of the red chili peppers.  I make no secret of my Mexican heritage and my love for our culture. Chili peppers is a common ingredient for many foods my mother and my grandmother makes.  I don’t make as I rarely cook and while I love many traditional things I am not a big fan of a lot of Mexican food.  I know. Trust me. I get poked fun at by my family.

This gorgeous home is by Artisan Fantasy, a brand that is known for crafting home furnishings, indoor and outdoor decor as well as for the garden.  This was a recent previous release, which can be found at the main store.  It is a gacha and I have provided the link to the key below in credits.

I’ve combined it with writing desk gacha as well as other pieces from this store.  

The Christmas decor you find in the last picture can be now be found at a discount at the Redeux Event, which is a bi-monthly event that features new and old releases at a discount. I enjoy visiting the event as I often find stuff I missed from fantasy and role-play events.

Hope to show you more decor from this brand in the near future.

The wander inn

It’s been raining  since this morning and around 11 am I was sleepy, after sleeping a good 7 hours from the night before.  It’s forecasted to rain all afternoon into the evening, so lets hope I’m able to stay awake after the big lunch I just had.

Hope you enjoy my picture, all the details are below.
