Boots & Bacon Seeds

Boots & Bacon Seeds

Featuring Yasum & |T|L|C| Home Collection

I had to laugh as I was titling this photo and at the same time cringed a bit.  My husband, who knows what an animal lover I am, often refers to baby pigs as bacon seeds just to get a reaction out of me.  Don’t get me wrong, I love bacon but would never knowingly eat any meat that came from a baby animal.  Maybe its the mother instinct in me or maybe I am just weird! LOL  Anyway, it is a cute name for some cute creations.

The boots are by Yasum and are available at REDEUX which just started today and will run thru the 21st.  The detail and texture work are just beautiful and of course there are color choices as well as color options for the socks.  A must have for your winter wardrobe.

My sweet…tasty..I mean, just sweet, piglet friends are by TLC Home Collection.  So realistic, their fur just makes you want to reach down and pet them.  They are also animated, making gentle movements with their heads, just ready to dig into the treats I have brought them.  It is Christmas after all!

Indian Summer

Indian Summer

I’m not sure we met all the guidelines for an official Indian Summer but it was 70 degrees Sunday and that was above the average for December.  My husband and I worked out in the garage, gathering Christmas decorations as we went and sorted the other items that had collected over the summer. Thankfully, we like each other so we work well together! *Winks

It seems my sponsors were busy creating items that would work well together also. They came up with some great things for the latest round of We Love Roleplay.  Playing “dress-up” is so fun and this photo was fun to shoot.  The outfit is from *SK* and comes in 7 colors at regular price plus a special Christmas pattern for just 50L.

The next item is by Krescendo.  The Wildwood Furs drying on the rack…only they are not just decor furs.  It is actually a gorgeous rug that comes in PG and Adult versions.  Krescendo is also offering a matching pillow for just 50L.  In fact, all creators are offering an item for just 50L this round.  You can see the gallery of all items here.

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! 🎄)

Leader of the Pack

Leader of the Pack

The sun is just starting to warm the frost filled air and the sled team is starting to stir.  Their owner had a pot of coffee brewing over the fire and is ready for another day of like in the Alaskan wilderness.  For years, my brother was a licensed guide in Alaska, who ran his own outfit leading hunters in their quest for bear and Dall sheep.  I have seen some wonderful photos and it looks beautiful.  I am certain I would find it too cold for my liking but these Huskies are perfectly comfortable.

Featured here are creations from |T|L|C|Home Collection and [Krescendo].  The Husky Outpost comes to us from |T|L|C| and is currently at the new round of Cosmopolitan.  The detail is amazing as usual.  You can change the fur texture on the adults and puppies and one of the adults even has cold breath vapor!  Just beautiful.

The buildings and other decor are by [Krescendo] and though not new, they certainly deserve another look as they are perfect for this time of year.  They are part of the Caribou Creek gacha set that premiered at a previous round of 6 Republic.  Creators design themes revolved around specific states of the USA and [Krescendo] was representing Alaska which worked out perfectly for my photo.

Bells on Bobtails Ring

Bells on Bobtails Ring

I’m not so sure this “bobtail” is my size but he sure gave a fun ride.  Fashiowl Poses has come out with several cute sets appearing at various events and this Carousel prop is just one of those.  It is one of four sets available now at Tres Chic.  The sets (sold separately) have a carnival theme and include a series with cotton candy, a kissing booth, one of those “swing the hammer and hit the bell” strong man games and of course this carousel.  The carousel has 9 built in poses and offers some great photo ops.  I loved the idea of a winter carousel ride, hot chocolate waiting in the background and am sure there are plenty of these around in the real world but not near me and certainly not with this much snow.  I will enjoy this one for a few more rides in Second Life but if you are lucky enough to live near one, make sure you pay it a visit this season.  Simple pleasures are far too often overlooked!

My Soft Place to Land

My Soft Place to Land

A soft place to land…we all need one.  I have a great one in my husband.  Now don’t get me wrong, sometimes he’s as soft as a brick if you know what I mean but that is to be expected in any relationship.  Not every day is perfect and there are times he makes me angry or just irritates me and I know there are times I do the same to him.  I don’t like picking up the jalapeno stems he constantly leaves on the kitchen counter and I know he doesn’t like it when I fact check him on things…like *ahem* the build up of co2 from a vent free gas fireplace for instance.

Even with all of that, he and I have far more perfect days than imperfect ones and I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world.  I have learned a lot about relationships from him as well, most important I think is looking at things from the other person’s viewpoint….something that is not always easy to do when your emotions are in the way.  I have to remind myself that just because we are having an “imperfect” day doesn’t mean he has stopped loving me.  We can be angry with one another but that doesn’t mean the love is gone. He has stayed by my side through some major medical issues, provides a great life for the both of us, encourages my dreams, tells me he is proud of me and brings me a candy bar and a frozen coke several times a week as he comes home from work.  I hope he feels those same things from me..taken care of, respected and most of all, loved.
