Apricity

Noun
(uncountable)(obsolete) The warmth of the Sun in winter.

The Polar Night has arrived where I live and I, unless I travel south, won’t feel the warmth of the Sun again for quite a while. The Sun will peek above the horizon again in about a month, but warmth? Maybe in February 😆

Today I’m featuring the Vintage Rocking Chair by DaD, which is out now exclusively at C88 until January 6th. The winter time calls for the warmth of a blanket and place to sit and sip some hot cocoa. The Vintage Rocking Chair is perfect just for that and great for both indoors and outdoors. It’s available in both adult and pg version or a decor version.

Hameau Provencal

I find myself on the French Riviera as this round of Tlalli РThe Fair Around The World is in France and La Petite Vie is there with the Hameau Proven̤al РA beautiful French country house with accompanying decor; a shed, lavender and grass, a young pine tree and a set of various potted plants. You can create your own serene French country town, just hop on over to Tlalli before it ends December 29!

I’m showing you the house today together with the potted plants. The Hameau Provençal is a row of three charming two-story apartments. It’s Copy/Modify, footprint is 18 x 13 x 8.5 and has a 121 Li out of the box. You get 4 different styles/colours of doors and shutters and you can manually colour the doors and shutters on the Blanc version. The shutters open/close upon Touch.

After Sudden Snow

There is something hauntingly beautiful about abandoned ruins that have been left to the natural state of decay. They speak of passage of time, often evoking a connection to history. You can find the DaD Byron Ruined Tower at their mainstore. It comes with single sits and couple animations (PG/Adult) and season changing climbing ivy. It also has a snow add on.

Together with the old ruins I’ve put something new – The Young Tibetan Cherry tree by Little Branch, a new release now available at Santa Inc. until December 20th.

The Young Tibetan Cherry is an ornamental tree with a truly magnificent bark and stem system consisting of a polished mahogany-red color with peeling circles. The pendulous mid-green leaves contrast well against the coppery stems making this tree a spectacular addition to your landscape. These 100% original mesh creations are highly detailed with realistic textures and animated foliage resulting in a true, life-like appearance. A choice of four seasons are readily available via an easy to use pop-up menu to keep your landscaping current. Owner permissions allow Copy & Modify to ensure that each item can be adapted to suit your unique needs. This item has a low Land Impact rating of 3 which grows as item is modified to a larger size.

Home For Christmas

As a young man and poor student, I always went home to my parents’ every year for Christmas. The drive from the University and home was just 3,5 hours. 4 in a blizzard. Still to this day, many, many… years later, and me living in a town even further away because of work my mum asks me if I’m coming home for Christmas. Family is important to me, but it’s a 12 hour drive, in snow, so the puppies and I are staying home most Christmases and celebrate with friends. Home is a lot of places.

MINA has made a new male hair! Casual handsome long hair that’s tucked behind the ears and cap, the MINA Wim is perfect for your every day look. The hair is equipped with a color change HUD for the hat with 6 assorted colors and material options. It’s available at Santa Inc. that’s now open!

I’m also wearing another version of the L&B Swear Havoc Sweater that I blogged for the first time yesterday. The sweater is available at TMD.
