Santa, You Got Mail

In my letter to Santa there is only one wish, one that can’t be bought. I’ll just keep it in my heart and hope that one day my wish comes true.

I’m wearing the L&B Havoc Sweater XMAS which is a VIP Group Gift – Wear your group tag and go pick it up at the L&B VIP room!

In front of me is HJM Designs‘ adorable Santa’s Mailbox Scene; a lighted tree, a squirrel, a bird, and Santa’s Mailbox sitting on a snowy rock. The bird animates by Touch. The scene is Copy/Modify and 5 Li out of the box. This item is available at the HJM Designs mainstore and marketplace!

The backdrop is DiMi’s magical “Winter Lights” scene; complete with lighted trees and grass, snow mounds, sled, snowshoes, a kitty in a basket and a snowman bear holding a sparkling lantern. Magical! The scene is 83 Li, Copy/Modify, you can edit linked all the items and move them around as you wish. Available at DiMi’s mainstore and marketplace now!

Fuyu no Yume

I rarely remember my dreams anymore, I blame a busy life and maybe also not getting enough sleep ;p When I was younger I remembered my dreams and they very often involved wild animals, especially bears and wolves even though I’ve never seen those animals in real life. Where I grew up the most dangerous predator was the wolverine. I used to follow their tracks in winter because I wanted to see them, but I never did find any.

DiMi’s “Happy Bears” winter scene took me straight into a winter dream and with the beautiful new Irezumi tattoo by CAROL G it became this, a bit of a Japanese inspired scene.

The “Happy Bears” backdrop/scene is available at the Driftwood event until January 6th. It’s Copy/Modify and 79 Li out of the box. You can edit linked and move stuff around as you please. It has animated snowfall and the squirrel is animated by Touch. A demo is available at DiMi’s mainstore.

I just fell in love with the Irezumi tattoo the moment I saw it. Now, irezumi literally means ‘inserting ink’ in Japanese. The Traditional Japanese Tattoo “Irezumi” is the decoration of the body with mythical beasts, flowers, leafs, and other images from stories, myths and tales. The impetus for the development of the art was the progression of the woodblock prints and notably the “hero’s heavily decorated with Irezumi”. Wearing Irezumi is an “Aspiration” to life’s goals. You can find this Irezumi tattoo at Men Only Monthly, starting tomorrow, December 20th.

Snow Covered

Second post today because I have so many awesome items I’d like to show you! Yes, I’m still at work and you might think I’m still procaffeinating but I’ve actually done some work and now I can upload the other picture I took yesterday and quickly, sort of, write this post. I think I’ll have a cookie with my coffee…

The beautiful Oak Tree Shrub by The Little Branch is a new release that is now available at Equal10. The Oak Tree Shrub is an intricately branched ornamental shrub with hollylike leaves. The dense foliage makes it the perfect specimen to fill bare spots or to create a privacy barrier. This shrub will make a beautiful addition to your landscape. Season changer menu is available upon Touch, it’s Copy/Modify and has a Land Impact range of 3-6.

The lovely house is the Southern Cottage by DaD, which is a previous release but the Snow Roof addon is new and waiting for you at the DaD mainstore and marketplace! If you don’t know the Southern Cottage from before here are the specs; It has a large porch that runs along 3 sides of the house. Inside you’ll find a spacious living room, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and dining room/living room. Touch any of the switches to change colour of the exterior or any room. Windows open/close upon Touch. Footprint is 18×33 and Land Impact is 118.

Annnnd, I’d like to give a warm welcome and thank you to my newest H&G sponsor, GOOSE! Since I’m still covering stuff up with snow, it’s just perfect that GOOSE has recently released a snowy sidewalks building kit and snow covered decor; bench, lamp and a swing. You can find the Snowy Sidewalks kit at Tannenbaum (last days!) and the Snow Covered Set at their mainstore.

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.
