Winter vibes

Morning everyone.  The sun is peeking through my window hitting the side of my face as I sit here writing up this post.  It sort of serves as a good reminder that there is always light in times of darkness.  I know that I haven’t been writing all that much.  In all frankness I haven’t been in the best of spirits lately.  I’ll put it down to winter blues and keep moving forward until the lightness of spirit returns.

I will still keep featuring awesome home and garden decor in the mean time.  Though I may start spamming you here in the next day or so as I plan to take a holiday break very soon, but I want to show as much as possible until then.

My scene today is comprised of so many wonderful brands, so take a peek below for all the details.

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!

The leaves are changing

The leaves are definitely changing, because tomorrow I start my winter posts.  I have a line up ready.  In the meantime enjoy my last fall post, which I got to share with the lovely Kimmy, who is one of the sweetest people I know.  She was super fantastic in helping me put together this scene.  You can see her version at her blog, the “Lookbook“.

Also, check out the latest home by Trompe Loeil.  It’s currently available at this round of Collabor88, and for more information and pictures visit the creators Flickr.

Happiness is along the coast

Yesterday, while in the middle of doing this scene Second Life decided to be a pain and kicked me off.  After several attempts of trying to log back on I finally gave up and decided an early night was calling.

Today’s post is to showcase another great home.  The Tatum Cabin is by Trompe Loeil and currently at Uber.   From the creator’s own words, “…is a two story, wood shingle and plank cabin with an open floor plan and private upstairs level. The flagstone base wraps around to embrace the stairwell tower, filled with light and windows, that leads to the landing and the private fireplace above. Front and back covered porch, interior and exterior lighting (including stairwell chandelier), privacy windows, locking doors, and our *home control system round out the features! Plus, grab the matching Snow Add-On for wintery decor versatility when the temperatures drop!”  For more pictures, visit her Flickr here.

I’m also featuring a new tree by Little Branch.  The White Ash Tree is seasonal, so click it to pick your color.  It’s 100% mesh and it’s animated, so make sure you go pick up your own at Uber!

It’s a new month and that means an onslaught of new events.  I have 3 additional builds to show, so stay tuned!

Just in the neighborhood

Hello everyone!  I’m going to post a second time today as it’s ready and this week is a short one for me.  That means I’m having to pack in a lot to make up for the lost time and every day seems to brings its own challenges and I rather post now in case tomorrow I don’t have time.  I appreciate each and everyone of you who just stop by and click like, make a comment or even read my short words or just enjoy my pictures.  I think they tell a story of their own.  Plus you always get a bonus with my amazing list of credits. I’m teasing. ♥

If time permits and I am not so tired at the end of the day I’ll be showcasing a parade of homes in the coming days as I have 3 fabulous builds to show you all.

In the meantime check out my first home of the week, which is another fantastic home by DaD -Virtual Living- currently available at Uber.  For more details on the house and additional photos, please visit DaD’s website.

Hot cocoa days

It was a bit cold today. The day was overcast and then it rained in the afternoon, which made me want to take a nap.  I was at work, so that wasn’t possible. Instead, I settled for a warm coffee.  If you’ve been following me for a while you might remember that I rarely if at all drink coffee, usually only when its really cold and usually when my family is all sitting around the table talking and enjoying pastries.

Though I recently started to drink iced coffee and I’ve been enjoying it a lot.  I usually stop and grab it from a local shop, but on those days when I don’t have time I go for the dark Columbian coffee that is made at the office. I just add some ice and then drown it with hazelnut or french vanilla creamer.  I skipped the ice today and it still tasted good, though I much prefer it iced.

Showcasing some home decor from both Salem and Blueprint.

Have a great start to the weekend!
