Squad Goals

The puppies and I have been on a mission to find the perfect Christmas tree and we did so in the most beautiful setting. The girls are excited that we’re bringing a whole tree inside the house.. but no chewing on it! This is also why I can’t put my presents under the tree. They are very good puppers, but they just can’t resist opening presents!

FKD has a new selection of ugly sweaters in the mainstore, make sure you have one for the ugly sweater party! Also make sure you stop by the store for Black Friday for a 50% discount on everything in the store (excluding gift cards).

Green Thumb

The Happy Hobby Gardener Pt. 2.


Inside the greenhouse is plenty of room for your plants, shelves, tools and potting stations. I’m off to a good start here I think; I got my EED potting table and hanging planters with different herbs. The potting table is a new EED mainstore/marketplace release; it’s a decorative item, with a playing cat, potting and garden tools and strawberry planters. I also have my CHEZ MOI garden shelf in here and it’s filled with potted herbs that are all included with the shelf, but not linked, so you can choose to use them separately or with the shelf and move them around as you please. You also get a lemon tree for your greenhouse or garden when you purchase the shelf! In my previous blog post i showed the outside of the greenhouse, which is available at the CHEZ MOI mainstore and so is the garden shelf.

Idyll – Home and Garden Design 2019

Det var solnedgang
Det var latter, det var sang
Det var sommerfri
Det var sjø og magi
Det var deg og det var meg
Det var minner som aldri vil dø
Det var evighet
Og en sol som farga himmelen rød

Postgirobygget – Idyll
We found idyll through EED’s All Aboard Island

Norwegian summers are short, especially in the north where I live. Some summers are not even warm! Makes it very easy to appreciate days like this, where you can stay outside all day and night and you know; when the sun is shining, it shines bright not just all day but all night too. Idyll to me is to be watching the midnight sun together with my beloved; on the shore, enjoying bonfire barbeque and ice cold beverages.

Get closer and stay close forever.

EED’s All Aboard Island is a group of rocks, palm trees, plants, a sitting area, bonfire, boat and birds on a sandy beach. It is a tropical idyll! You can find it and more oceanic themed creations from EED at the Home & Garden Expo which is open until April 7. Check out Mahogany’s blog post for more!

The Picnic Tree – Landscape Architect 2019

On a picnic morning without a warning
I looked at you and somehow I knew

EED’s SPRING is in the AIR TREE

On a day for singing
My heart went winging
A picnic grove was our rendezvous

EED’s ‘SPRING is in the AIR TREE’ is a big tree with pretty spring-flowers around it. Perfect for picnics, or just to sit and relax for a moment. Out of the box it has a Land Impact of 50. It comes with a resizer script so you can make it fit your garden or park perfectly. The tree is available now at the EED Marketplace.

You and I in the sunshine
We strolled the fields and farms
At the last light of evening
I held you in my arms

If you like this tree you might like to take a look at the Exquisite Eye Decorations Marketplace store for more beautiful decor for your home and garden.

The Act of Clothing – Home and Garden Design 2019

“Pretty is an accident of nature. Elegant is a self-created work of Art.”


Being Caballero
“Take all the time you need, love…”

She has hundreds of outfits in her closet and she looks good in everything, but she can’t find anything to wear! While I most of the time just get dressed, there seems to be a much deeper, comprehensive philosophy behind her choice of attire. With the quote “Elegant is a self-created work of art” in mind, I know that creating art often takes time and you toss aside plenty of drafts before you’re able to express what you pictured in your mind. So when she can’t find anything to wear, it has nothing to do with thinking it doesn’t look good (you can say she looks fantastic umpteen times but it doesn’t matter), but rather because she doesn’t know what she wants to express that day or the expression doesn’t match what she pictured in her mind. Thus the act of clothing is the creation of art! Am I on to something, or am I just on something? Either way, I do appreciate and admire fine works of art and when she’s finished getting dressed, I swear, that’s what she is; breathtakingly beautiful and I can’t keep my eyes off of her.

‘Her boudoir’ scene

The Room divider ‘Lady’ by EED is not only functional but beautiful decor, with vintage images of women on transparent screens, a cute slipdress on a hanger and a pretty flower arrangement in front it’s perfect for a romantic room or setting.
