Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Featuring [Fetch] & Fashiowl Poses

Happy Friday everyone!  We had a little snow in the air here in the southern United States and I had to quickly grab some video on my phone.  We just don’t see it much here and having lived in Michigan most of my life I suppose I miss it a bit….at Christmastime at least.  It was only fitting that my latest photo feature a bit of the fluffy flakes.  

I am feeling all wintry in my quilted skirt and fuzzy sweater from [Fetch].  You can find the outfit at Collabor88.  It’s called Kelly and comes in 18 mix and match color options, 9 for the skirt and 9 for the sweater. Super cute!

The pose I am using comes from the always creative Fashiowl Poses.  Its called Xmas Bicycle and is your gift at The Liaison Collaborative right now!  It includes 7 different poses that are built in the bike and also included separately and are adjustable via menu.  Fashiowl Poses is also having a 50% off sale in their mainstore right now thru the 26th.  It’s a great time to grab up some adorable poses and props.

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.

Christmas Keys

Christmas Keys.jpg

One thing I really love about the Christmas season it the music.  Growing up my mother played her collection of Christmas albums the whole month of December on a floor model record player.  Back then record players were in a large console that was actually what I would consider a piece of furniture.

I remember it well, sliding the top open and watching the records spin round and round. While the old console is long gone, my mother still keeps a record player and still plays all those old, well loved, Christmas albums.

This gorgeous piano is by Krescendo and is available now at the Seduction Fair until December 21st. The baubles in the vases are from Krescendo as well and are part of the MadPea Alliance.  You can read more about the MadPea Premium hunts here.

The beautiful dress I am wearing is by *Sweet Kajira* and is coming soon to the Sense Event which opens on December 18th.  The Jane dress comes in nine shades, perfect for the holidays and beyond.

Come Back Frosty

Come Back Frosty

Blogging should first and foremost be about doing something you love.  When I finally had the time to start working on photography and blogging I started with things I already had in my inventory.  Luckily I had been a bit of a hoarder in Second Life so had a good bit of stuff to work with.  I was full of ideas and had fun laying out a scene.

I have written before about not wanting to be put into a blogging category and that is still true.  I wondered if, the longer I blogged, that I would change my mind in that regard. I haven’t.  I like blogging decor, fashion, poses and sometimes just an idea.  That is what this picture is about.  It was just an idea.  There are no sponsored items, nothing I am showcasing…just an idea I got while watching the old animated and stop motion classics (Rudolph, Frosty, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, The Little Drummer Boy) while I decorated my Christmas tree.

I hope you enjoy my version of Karen, heartbroken and crying, because Frosty has melted after being locked in the greenhouse by Professor Hinkle.  Of course Santa comes and saves the day with a gust of northern wind and Frosty is returned to life.  Magical winters!  I love them.

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! 🎄)

Mellow Yellow..or Red..or Orange

Mellow Yellow

We had an extremely windy day over the weekend and it took nearly all the leaves of the Japanese Maple in the yard.  They are now pooled up, again, near the fence and garage door.  They are a lovely shade of reddish orange and I have to admit….they look pretty all piled up.

In my Second Life, I wanted to contain the mess so I am happy with my Ginkgo branch.  As you can see its leaves are falling too and it will be soon swept aside to make way for the Christmas decorations. Ok..on to the fashions!

I am super excited to have a new sponsor, Aleutia, and am starting off with a great top featured in Fameshed Go.  It is Emma, which comes in your choice of either a dress or a shirt, both with SO many options.  I am wearing the shirt here which comes in a ton of colors, 25 of them.  There are options to turn the sleeves off making it a great little tank for the summer also. You can change the color of the belt (waist section) as well the sheerness of the fabric.

The Emma top and dress are in the Aleutia mainstore and are available as part of Fameshed Go which will end on December 10th.

Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather

If you are a bird watcher or bird lover you are going to want the latest creations by |T|L|C|!!  First we have the “Fly Thru”, the most popular dining spot of the most fashionable birds in town.  The detail is amazing.  The lights on the sign have a flashing light effect that can be turned on or off and a volume control for the birds as well.  So cute!  The next offering is “Meow’s Diner” and is only for the birds who are not faint of heart.  Those brave birds willing to take that step onto the cat’s tongue will be rewarded with a pile of seeds they will find just inside. Again, you can control the volume of the birds so you can decide what works best for your environment.  The feeders are available at Tannenbaum which is going on now until December 22nd.  Fly on over and check it out!
