Freezing Over

As if I don’t have enough snow and cold in real life, I went ahead and made it snow outside The Bar @ HaVen. While I was finishing up the ground cover, Little Branch released a new tree so I figured I’d take a picture of it right here before I clutter up the parcel with all sorts of wintery bushes, trees and decor.

Little Branch is at this round of Uber with another beautiful tree; the Zelkova Serrata. Delicately animated like it’s moving to a light breeze. Touch it to bring up the season changer menu. My picture shows the Winter version. The tree is at 7 Li out of the box, but it’s Copy/Mod and resizing it will change the Land Impact.

I dug up the Tree Sled Rezzer from my inventory. It’s a past release by CHEZ MOI so you can find this in their mainstore and marketplace. You and your friends can have some fun in the snow, just click the sign to rez a sled, choose either male or female animation and off you go! Be careful not to swoosh off world!

The Laguna House

At this round of Uber you’ll find this amazing build by DaD; the Laguna House is luxurious, modern, spacious and has a fantastic layout, with a beautiful infinity pool (with light system) separating the two wings. I already own a couple of homes by DaD from before I started blogging for them so I knew I was in for a treat. It still blew my mind when I rezzed it on the shore, it’s so beautifully and meticulously designed and it fit perfectly where I wanted it, between the river and the sea. Its footprint is 44,6 x 38,7 so make sure you have room for this on your parcel. It’s Copy/Mod so you can resize it down but I wouldn’t recommend reducing the size too much. The Li is only 135, which really is low for a build this size and with all its features.

For the landscape I have used all Little Branch and Studio Skye items. Here’s the full list, enjoy!

Standing Out

Being stylish means standing out yet fitting in at the same time.

Yes, that is a fashion quote but it totally applies to other stuff too! Like the colourful Croton Plant by Little Branch. It was recently out at Cosmopolitan but it should soon be available in the Little Branch mainstore.

Croton is an extensive flowering plant genus in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. Its bright colors draw the eye like a moth to a flame.

It is 100% mesh with realistic and detailed textures and would make a perfect addition to your gardens and landscapes.

There are also complimentary landscaping items included. Land Impact is just 3, but as permissions are both copy & modify can be adapted to suit your needs.

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.

Sanctum

I wanted to create a peaceful place for us to spend some quiet time together outdoors on our parcel, yet with the option of comfort and privacy. I saw the Byron Pavillion by DaD, and it’s perfect! The Byron hanging chair and climbing ivy, also by DaD. You can find the Byron Pavillion, the Byron Hanging Chair and the Climbing Ivy at the DaD mainstore and marketplace.

Trees, plants and grass are all from Little Branch. Inside the pavillion you can see their newest release, the potted Fiddle Leaf Fig which is available right now at the Man Cave event. I will give you a closer look of it in my next blog post.

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.

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.

Elizabeth Lawrence

Featuring the Wild Berry Shrub by The Little Branch today. It’s available exclusively right now at NEO Japan until October 20th. After the event it will be made available at their mainstore and marketplace.

The fruit has a five-pointed crown on the underside of the berry. Wild berries have thin branches and produce petite flowers. The leaves are green and broad, with a defined point, and they turn bright red in the fall. They’re 100% mesh and come with gently animated leaves giving them a very life-like appearance. Detailed, realistic textures and a choice of 4 seasons to choose from via an easy to use pop-up menu make this a perfect choice for all year round landscaping. Land Impact is just 4LI but as permissions are both Copy & Modify can be adapted to suit your landscaping and gardening needs.
