Frosty Mornings, Toasty Mugs

B-Made is at Cosmopolitan this round with the Coffee Point. A cute, fully stocked coffee shop, perfect for any outdoor meeting points on your land.

As far as meeting points are concerned, take a look at the Winter Camp by GOOSE which is out now at Winter Spirit by Flair for Events. Included in the set is a campfire, a decorated fence, a bench with single and couple animations, tree stumps with single animations and with or without pillow, a table, a pile of wood, light strings, an old coffee pot, hot coco mug and a plate of marshmallows (the marshmallows are not in this picture because I forgot to rez them!)

An item from the Yugen Dreamy Winter gacha snuck its way into this picture just because it’s too adorable. Watch my blog for a more in depth showcase of the Dreamy Winter gacha collection coming soon.

Precautionary Measures

Just. Don’t be stupid. Don’t be selfish. Keep staying safe and remember to care about each other. That’s all.

The Little Branch is participating in the December round of The Liaison Collaborative with the Douglas Fir Tree! “Botanist-explorer David Douglas — this tree’s namesake — described it as “one of the most striking and truly graceful objects in nature.” Tree expert Michael Dirr heralded it as “one of the noblest forest trees.” To say the Douglas fir is beloved by the tree people of the world is definitely accurate. The general public has a number of reasons to appreciate this tree as well. Douglas fir is one of the most important lumber species, it makes up nearly half of all Holiday trees grown in the U.S., and its attractive appearance and growth rate make it popular in yards and parks.

The Lowell’s Night By The Fire Pit set by Muniick is a 3-piece set, with the fire pit, chair and table. Chair and Table have 2 versions included in the pack. A clean texture version, and a worn texture version. There are 4 Clean texture options and 6 Worn texture options total. You can find this set in the Muniick mainstore or marketplace.

Frosty Winter Walk

Winter is definitely here and yesterday I had the woodburner stove going the whole afternoon and evening. I even threw in an extra log when I went to bed so it would keep heating through the night. Outside it was -4C / 23F and looked pretty much like in this picture but darker since I don’t have much daylight. The puppies are still smelling reindeer, which are still around here somewhere, and they’re terribly dissapointed when I don’t let them chase them. Ok enough chit-chat, let’s look at what I’m blogging!

Roots and Wings

Wild like the wind in the tall pine trees I got roots and I got wings…

Miranda Lambert

One of the fastest growing southern pines, this tree is used as a quick-screen in many landscapes. This North American native has dark green needles and narrow, red-brown, often-paired cones that are three to six inches long. It has a long history with the pioneers and is known by several other names, among them rosemary pine, old field pine, and bull pine. Loblolly pines provide shelter and food for many southeastern animals and the seeds are also consumed by chipmunks, squirrels and other small rodents.

The Loblolly Pine Trees by The Little Branch are now available at Uber. There are two versions and they are 3-7 LI and Copy / Modify.

The Beauty of Letting Go

We fight so hard to hold on to everything and we fight to let go. Fall is here and the trees are about to show us the beauty of letting go. It doesn’t have to be so painful.

I’m enjoying my lunch outside by the Positano water well by DaD. Wearing my best Hoorenbeek suit but removed the tie. A sense of freedom. My lunch and water is packed so neatly by Cinoe. I have delicious sandwiches, meat, tomatoes and an egg. As I eat I’m watching the falling leaves whirl through the air and they are beautiful.
