Sunshine On My Mind

Let’s take a vacation and enjoy some sunny days by the pool at the Villa Barona by La Petite Vie; I’ve set up the new and amazing Porto Lounge Set from CHEZ MOI poolside, where we can both sunbathe and cuddle and I’ve acquired a Floating Bar from Aphrodite Shop stocked with all our favorite drinks and snacks. Along the White Garden Wall from GOOSE I’ve planted the beautiful Orange Tree Espaliers from The Little Branch for privacy and a most peaceful and relaxing scenery!

Values Determine The Future

I’m not going to say too much about the title I chose with this picture except I hope you’ll think about it for a moment. What are your values? What values are you teaching your children?

I’m so pleased to show you the Villa Barona by La Petite Vie, which is available right now at a 50% discount at Cosmopolitan with just a few days left of this round! This house comes in three versions; full version with pool and exterior grounds, house and pool version and house only. The full version is 177 LI and has a 52 x 44 m footprint. HUD controlled texture changer for exterior and interior walls and the pool water.

You can find the beautiful newly released Rongo tree at Yugen. 5 different shapes in the pack, high and low LOD versions and HUD controlled texture changer for leaves and bark.

The Potted Palm from The Little Branch I already blogged earlier but you know, they really look good in this space! Available at Man Cave.

What also looks good in this space is the patio furniture from GOOSE. The RELAX couple lounger and Rope terras set are both previous releases so they’re all available at the GOOSE mainstore.

Bubbles!

The bubble buddies set from Yugen has to be the most adorable thing I ever blogged. Look at them! They blow bubbles! Decorate your child’s room or have peanut, pepe and pina pine around as fun decor at your summer party they are sure to make people smile! Ok, I better get back in the pool with M now. Happy Hump Day everyone!

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.
