I’m working my way towards a break from home & garden blogging with this and one more post containing furniture and decor. There will be a change in my blogging going forward as I’ll be focusing mostly on avatar related creations like fashion and accessories. It takes a lot of time for me to set up a decor scene and then blogging it and right now I don’t have that amount of time available. So after my next post there will be no more pure h&g posts on here until time hopefully again allows me to do them again.
Some traditions are closer to my heart than others. As a child it’s easy to see magic in everything and especially Christmas and with a little help from loving grown-ups this magic can become real. I believed that Santa came to our house every year after midnight on the 24th of December with our Christmas tree; he decorated it and put all the presents underneath then he hung our Christmas stockings filled with candy on our bedroom doors. Sometimes if I was awake that late I could hear Santa stomping up the steps (yes the steps, he didn’t come down our chimney lol), carrying the tree, I imagined. But since I was bit shy I closed my eyes and hid under the blanket. My sister easily slept through the whole thing every time. I think my parents and my dad in particular had a lot of fun creating this memory for us even if it meant staying up very late.
Christmas Eve will find me Where the love light gleams I’ll be home for Christmas If only in my dreams
I’ll be home for Christmas

Well maybe it does look like someone started typing their last will and testament on the Muniick vintage typewriter; I still associate typewriters, ink and paper with inspiration and creativity and there’s my blog post title. I don’t write but I used to draw and when I drew there was no end to the things I wanted to draw. Endless creativity.

“Decorating your Second Life dream home isn’t just about filling space. It’s about the freedom to express your tastes and interests with every choice”. Starting off with a quote by Froukje Hoorenbeek, Dutchie Design founder and owner, as I am welcoming Dutchie to my blog with a feature of their most recent release, the Sleigh Bed. Dutchie’s sleigh bed is, like all furniture by Dutchie, made with great attention to detail in both design, textures and animations. The bed is color-changeable into 9 colors for the blanket and spread. You can find the color change menu in the Sits menu. The bed comes in 4 versions: PG, Adult FM, Adult FFM and Adult FMM. All have AVsitter experience enabled for auto attaching props and all animations have Bento hand poses and animations. The Dutchie Sleigh Bed is available right now at FaMESHed.

You’re looking at the complete Muniick Lorraine Vintage Living Room collection, as Muniick released the Lorraine Living Room Set B last weekend and this was the final set in the collection. When I rezzed the pieces I was immediately pulled back in time to my own 1980’s childhood. This was a very typical living room in the late 1970’s through early 1980’s. My grandparents had this exact couch. Slightly different cushion colors but it was this exact couch and 2 chairs and an ottoman. And I remember one of the rooms in my parents’ house had that wallpaper, a wallpaper which I managed to find on the marketplace while looking for 70’s wallpapers. Got to love it! We also had one of those string and nail schooners hanging on the wall. I think I broke it.
With the goodbye to gachas in Second Life, JIAN is working hard on reintroducing their gacha collections as fatpacks with Copy / Modify permissions and No Transfer.

I’m not planning on going on a vacation this year but if I was, it would be to stay at a cabin or a house far away from people. Oh, that would be no different from where I live!

Get to your vacation spot in the classic summer mobile; the  Wombi by 777 Motors, which is also at Summer Camp. Splash around in the Oval Frame Pool by CHEZ MOI, you can find it at Cosmopolitan. Keep the puppers cooled down with the Doggo Sprinklers from Krescendo. Yes, yes, they will water the grass as well. Yes I mean the sprinklers. The Doggo Sprinklers are available at Black Fair. I found a nice outdoor shower for my cabin getaway over at the InsurreKtion mainstore; the Ibiza Set. And hey, Muniick has made a Classic Webstrap Lawn Chair and Campfire Set bundle for Happy Weekend, only 60L$! This is the final weekend for Muniick’s 2nd anniversary sale which ends Sunday night so hurry on over to the Muniick mainstore and grab some deals before they are gone!
