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.

Always Deer

At this round of Cosmopolitan you can find the warm and cozy Chaleur Bois Set by CHEZ MOI; woodburning stove with animations, leather armchairs filled with single and couple (PG/Adult) animations with automatic temp attached prop rezzer and cute decor. You can purchase the items separately or as a full set.

Touch the chair cushion to change the texture of the cushion. The rug and the flag also have texture options, touch them to bring up a menu. The cookie tray hands out a temp attached cookie upon touch too. Basically you have everything you need for some homey hygge in the Chaleur Bois Set!

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.

Close To Nature

As promised in my previous post, here’s a closer look at The Little Branch’s potted Fiddle Leaf Fig which is out now at the Man Cave event.

Standing in a beautiful ornate pot, it will make a very decorative addition both inside and outside your homes. Their huge fiddle-shaped leaves (hence the name) and the fact they can grow over six-feet tall mean they have maximum impact in any room.

It is 100% mesh, with beautifully detailed and realistic textures giving it a very life-like appearance. Land Impact ranges from 3LI – 4LI, but as permissions are copy & modify, you can adapt them to suit your decorating and gardening needs.

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.
