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!

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).

The Halloween Robbery

The Bauer family were preparing for their Halloween party, blissfully unaware that the Störtebeker crew were coming to steal their vegetable harvest…

The beautiful Olive Tree Shade by Little Branch is available now at Equal10. These stunning trees will add a Mediterranean touch to your gardens and landscapes.

100% mesh with detailed and realistic textures and animated leaves giving that very life-like appearance. There is a choice of four seasons to choose from via an easy to use pop-up menu. Land Impact ranges from 4LI – 7LI but as permissions are both copy & modify can be adapted to suit your needs. You will also find a selection of complimentary landscaping item inside the box.

The adorable Veggiemites skeletons and the Scarecrow with bearcubs, both by EED, are amazing additions to your Halloween garden decor. Resizable on touch. Copy/No Mod.

If you’re looking for Halloween decoration for water, then take a closer look at the Pirate Skeleton Rowboat by HJM Designs, yarr! It comes with ambient sound. Touch the boat to start/stop the sound. This item is Copy/Mod.

Witching Hour

Tis the witching hour of night,
Orbed is the moon and bright. And
the stars they glisten, glisten.
Seeming with bright eyes to listen-
For what listen they?

Over at Uber you can find both the Grafitti Banyan Tree by The Little Branch and the Scary House by DaD. The Witches Cauldron scene is available at the HJM Designs mainstore.

You need a spooky house you said? DaD’s Scary House is certainly spooky but it’s also charming! 90 Li and Copy/Mod, it comes with or without chimney smoke and it also has a snow addon.

The detailed textures and carvings on the bark are why the tree from Little Branch was named Graffiti; many visitors who have seen these trees have felt compelled to leave their marks on this majestic old tree. For the tree in my picture, they probably did that mostly during day time… Straight out of the box the tree is 22 Li, but as it’s Copy/Mod you can adapt it to suit your needs.

HJM Designs’ Witches Cauldron Scene is the perfect Halloween decoration for your yard. The witches animate on touch. 18 Li Copy/Mod.

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.

The Wild Garden

The Happy Hobby Gardener Pt. 1


I like doing yard work. Cutting grass, trimming trees, moving rocks. I haven’t done much planting though, but I suspect I might like that too if I ever get a garden that’s my own. Then I’d want a greenhouse like this one from CHEZ MOI; with a mixture of glass and bricks it’s a fantastic piece of garden decor all on its own and with the lean-to shed I’d have everything I need to be a happy hobby gardener. The cute little shed in this picture is made by HJM Designs. It comes with exterior and interior decor, 8 single animations, prop rezzer, and there’s a texture change menu upon Touch. You can find both the greenhouse and the shed in their respective mainstores (slurls below). I’m showing you the inside of the shed in this post and tomorrow, or later today depending on where you are in the world, I’ll have another post showing you the inside of the greenhouse.

Coastal Sunset

I think I’m going to stay on the coast for the duration of the summer. It’s really nice, not too hot, and take a look at this cute little float house I found today by Never Totally Dead! Decorated with hanging wall planters by HJM Designs and interior decor by Nutmeg (I’ll show you a picture of that later in a post by itself).
The Float House comes with a chair containing single sits (the chair is unlinked so you can move it around) and the house has a resizer menu on touch. I’m showing the original size, which has a Land Impact of 32.
HJM Designs have made 5 different versions of The Bucket Wall Planters, I’ve used the Mixed Flowers and the Hanging Plant. The planters also come with an animated butterfly or bee, you turn the animation on or off by touching them. You can also change the texture of the wood by touching that; light or dark versions.
