Visions of Sugarplums

Visions of Sugarplums (2)

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.

We are right in the middle of that time of year where treats and goodies are plentiful everywhere you look.  Myself, I have been thinking about Russian Teacakes.  They are a Christmas tradition for me and I admit to visions of them dancing in my head even while “snug” in my chair.  I am loving all the Christmas decor and photos and am starting to wonder what we will all be taking photos of after Christmas.

My pose today is by PosEd Poses and is aptly named “Thinking Out Loud”.  If you look closely you can see I am thinking about sugarplums and other treats “dancing” in my head.  I need pecans for my teacakes…I may as well head to the store so I can make my teacakes and then start thinking about the next tasty treat.

Festive Comfort

Festive Comfort

It was back in October I think, that Brocante offered these red chairs and a matching sofa as their Fifty Linden Friday item.  I bought them, as I was thinking ahead, and just knew I would be using them in a holiday/Christmas photo and as you can see, here they are!

Just like in real life, I pulled out my favorite Christmas items and added a few new things to create this merry, festive sitting area.  Some of the new things were from the Black Friday sales, The Frozen Solid Cart Sale and the SL Christmas Expo.  There is no shortage of beautiful decor and fashion in Second Life right now so if you haven’t already spruced up your home and picked out your holiday outfits now is the time to do so!  Have fun and Merry Christmas! (Yes, it’s December…I can say that now! 🎄)

Hygge Holiday

Hygge Holiday

Ok…being the Google girl that I am, I had to find out what Hygge is, especially considering I have seen the word several times this week.  First of all, since I know you are dying to know, its pronounced hue-guh, at least according to Google and it is “a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment”.

I think this latest gacha set from Krescendo has captured that feeling perfectly.  The pieces are just beautiful. The Hygge Holiday set will be available at The Epiphany, which starts later today. Collect all the pieces and then go enjoy your cozy, comfortable feeling of wellness…don’t we all need that!?

*Landmark to The Epiphany will be active once the event opens.

A Real Page Turner

I wonder how many people today know what that title means.  How many of us still read actual books?  With all of today’s Kindles and Glowlights and audio books, having to turn the page is becoming a thing of the past.  There is a used book store not to far from my home and I like to stop in from time to time just to browse and take in the smell.  Bookstores and used book stores have a distinct smell, like old fashioned hardware stores did.

I can remember when I was in high school and would take a load of books to the used book store.  You got credit for bringing in old ones which meant you got to pay the cheaper price posted for the ones you were purchasing.  It was a real money saver if you were an avid reader.  The owner had a cat that would follow me around the whole time I was there and as an animal lover it was hard to choose between looking at books or petting the cat.

This book nook is by Sway’s and will be available at Whimsical which starts on November 18th at 12 noon SLT.  It comes in PG and Adult versions and has texture options for the wood and pillows. Grab a book, a snack, have a seat and enjoy!

City Highrise

City Highrise(1)

I love decorating and there is never a shortage of supplies in Second Life.  Great things come out almost every other day.  I never get tired of arranging, rearranging and then re-rearranging a scene!  Its part of the fun.  For this picture I used a mix of new and old releases and would be content to curl up on that sofa, turn on the record player and enjoy the view.  The sofa and shelf unit are the newest releases by NEWCHURCH.  The sofa is part of the Flix & Chill set currently at the Red Light District and it is loaded with options.  You can change the color of the sofa, the cushions and even resize it to fit your avatar to perfection.  The set includes a rug, coffee table, tv, remote control, popcorn and more (not shown here)…everything you need to enjoy a weekend binge session of Netflix.  The Bonny Console includes all the decor items shown on its shelves and is available at Cosmopolitan.  It is modify so you can change the color of the wood to suit your needs.  Be sure check them, take them home and enjoy your own view!

Fairy Photography

Fairy Photography(1)

My daughter, an only child, got married 2 weeks ago.  It was wonderful and bittersweet at the same time.  I am so proud of her and who she has become.  We live hundreds of miles apart and I miss her every day.  She and I went hunting for fairies often when she was little and being the creative child she was, she spent a good month one summer, making tiny articles of clothing for the fairies she was sure flitted around our house.  They were bits of twisted and tied fabric that I still have to this day.  She would lay them out near her bed each night, sometimes with a note, and every morning those tiny pieces of clothing had been scooped up by the fairies sometime in the night.  This beautiful pose by PosEd Poses was a sweet reminder of the childhood moments she and I shared.  Someday I hope she has a blond haired little beauty of her own and that they spend warm summer evenings hunting fairy boys and girls among the flowerbeds and trees.
