It’s a Feeling..

Christmas isn’t a season.
It’s a feeling.

Edna Ferber

For me, the Christmas feeling usually arrives on the evening the day before Christmas Eve. In Norway, Christmas Eve is the big day and traditionally December 23rd is the day Norwegians decorate their Christmas trees (what they used to anyway, it seems a lot of people do that earlier in December now) and what we did.. or rather, what Santa did, when I was a kid. Yes that’s right; in our house, Santa brought the tree inside and decorated it while my sister and I were sleeping. When we woke up on Christmas Eve morning, our stockings were filled and the tree was decorated with all the gifts placed underneath it. We each got to pick one gift to open in the morning but then we had to wait until after Christmas Eve dinner to open the rest of them.

Showcasing several goodies today, maybe you’ll find something that’ll put you in a SL Holiday spirit?

The Vintage Sled by DaD will be available at this upcoming round of Uber and it will be made available in PG and Adult versions, filled with awesome single and couples animations. In my picture, Mahogany and I are using one of the PG cuddle animations found in the sled.

At Tannenbaum you can find the most adorable log reindeer by Galland Homes, a wonderful decor item for the holidays!

The popular Candy Cane Hunt just opened and Never Totally Dead… is offering the super cute Munchies Tray with milk and cookie for Santa and carrots for Rudolph! You can go on the hunt or just hop on over to the Never Totally Dead… mainstore to pick up this prize. Easy peasy!

To make this scene wintery cosy I’ve used conifere and genevrier both by La Petite Vie. They are copy/mod, come in animated and non-animated versions. Touch brings up a texture change menu. You can find the trees at the La Petite Vie mainstore.

Welcome Autumn

Those who have followed me here or on Flickr a while know that I mostly like taking crisp, clear pictures, in colour. My pictures very much reflect my mood. And I love Fall because of the colours. Yeah, it’s also the start of ‘hygge’ season which is mmmm! Um, where was I.. Oh yes, I have some wonderful Fall decor to show you today!

At this round of Fameshed you can find some amazing Fall decor by Galland Homes; Pumpkin Planters and Decor Boards. There are two sets of planters and a set of four decor boards. You can buy each board separately or you can buy the whole set.

HJM Designs had made a most charming Fall inspired cabinet with accompanying decor. You can find the Zarina Cabinet at their mainstore or marketplace.

The Zen Feel

I decorated part of the spacious second floor of the Stonehill Cottage by Galland Homes with The Mandala Bedroom by CHEZ MOI. A bedroom that allows yourself to scape, turn off, drift into a peaceful slumber or enjoy a bit of “we-time” before bedtime. Or a little meditation in the morning while you wait for your girlfriend, whose time zone is 6 hours behind yours, to wake up. The Mandala bedroom set consists of a beautifully carved bed (PG/Adult); a bed that actually has sleep animations, thank you CHEZ MOI! A mirror that’s not only decorative, with its string lights and pictures, it has single and couple animations in it. The Mandala Round Pouf that contains single animations. The candle set, banana plant and a highly detailed rug with texture change options. Enjoy this beautiful and zen bedroom, it is available right now at Cosmopolitan! Namaste.

Fall Celebration

Let’s take a trip to the countryside, breathe the crisp Autumn air, stay at the Stonehill Cottage for the apple harvest and have some home made cider by the firepit. Ahhhh…

The Stonehill Cottage by Galland Homes is a spacious one-bedroom cottage with an open floorplan on both levels. The cottage is original mesh, materials enabled, 88 LI, has windows that open on touch and is copy/mod.

Next to the cottage we have the Freeman Greenhouse, also by Galland Homes. It’s original mesh design, materials enabled and has a LI of 25.

For the celebration part, I’ve included the Riverdale Hay Set and the Cider Bar by CHEZ MOI. The Hay Couch comes packed with single and couple animations (PG or Adult) and the firepit includes options to turn smoke on or off, as well as the fire and sound fx. The Cider Bar dispenses temporary attached cider props to you and your friends!
