Seasons Change With the Scenery, Weaving Time in a Tapestry

Seasons Change With the Scenery, Weaving Time in a Tapestry

Greetings beautiful people, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted and a lot has changed for me in a short time as it always does. I’m here this time to share some goodies you can find to help make your home festive and cozy for the holiday season. Cart Sale opened a few days ago with lots of bargains and Dictatorshop has new items up for grabs as well. If you’re unfamiliar with the Cart Sale, it’s held at the Wash and features items on sale for 10 lindens and merchants are allowed to sell one item for 50 lindens. The current round is Winter Wonderland themed and there’s some great wintery attire to find like the jammies from Sweet Willows. I found the Jester set fun but there are some other sets available that are more holiday themed if you prefer. Each jammie set comes in sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass mesh bodies. The fit is really nice and makes the bum look great! There are some new releases from Dictatorshop that I have out, the first of which is the Chesterfield Coffee Table from Dictatorshop. Two versions are available, PG or Adult Vanilla, which allows you to pick what you need to complete your living room set. In the Adult Vanilla version, there are singles poses for both female and males as well as couples poses that will make your toes curl. By clicking the logo, you can change the wood textures and metal textures. Dictatorshop also has a new fireplace in the main store that comes with a bondage version and a decor only version. Textures are customizable and you can choose from a selection of art photos to display or add your own. The Chateau Bondage Fireplace has poses that work for one submissive or two and is a good option for people who enjoy objectification play. For both the table and fireplace, please note that I have slightly tinted them darker to match my cabin a little better.

To add some festive charm to the room, I have a couple things from KK Home that are at the Cart Sale. The Hunter Log Rack goes well with any fireplace and will help you stay warm inside while the weather gets cold. I also grabbed the Nutcracker to place on the mantle because it reminds me of the ones I own in real life.

Lastly, Dark Knight Decor has some great pieces at the Cart Sale that are festive and a little quirky. Two Shadowboxes are up for grabs. I grabbed the blue version and hung it up on my wall for a little winter sparkle.

I will be sharing more sneak peeks so check back soon for more Cart Sale goodies!

Upon the Highest Bough

 

Upon the Highest Bough

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on
Our troubles will be miles away, ooh

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star
Upon the highest bough

So many events! So little time.

I’ve recently stopped by a few places like Arcade and The Tannenbaum Holiday Market for winter and Christmas themed decor and other goodies

If you haven’t heard, Pixicat has a new Fifty Linden Friday sweater up for grabs. Winter cozy and a touch holiday themed, this sweater comes with a texture change Hud for a few color options. All standard mesh sizes are included with some of the most popular mesh body fitted versions as well. You’ll be looking fashionable at the Ugly Sweater parties with this cozy design.

Typically I steer clear of shoes that aren’t fitted for Slink or Maitreya feet, but these boots from The Sugar Garden were to die for. There’s plenty of color choices for both the base and laces but these do not come with a texture change Hud. I left The Tannenbaum Holiday Market with a pair in white and the mocha ones seen here. While you’re there, try some of the gachas for cute baubles to put on your Christmas tree or just as fun knick knacks.

Also check out Collabor88 for some fantastic winter decor and clothing. The woodstove and a lot of the associated decor are from {what next} which really suited my living room. Warm up your hands and set the kettle on the stove for hot cocoa. Don’t forget to hang your stockings for Santa to fill!

The Arcade also has fun winter and holiday items along with the Season of Giving gifts from participating merchants. Right now I’m wearing one of Spellbound’s gacha hairs that comes in two hat versions (Blizzard or Chilly), and varying hair colors. Both hairs will keep your head warm and looking cute with the attached hat.

Remember to stay warm this season!

Gonna Let it Burn

Gonna Let it Burn

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

The Warm Socks Hunt 2 & Gacha Event hosted by Fi’s Hunts runs from November 5-30 and it looks like the designers came up with some cozy warm goodies for the chilly weather we’re having. While I am not fond of the cold, it’s a great excuse to wear fun boots and curl up by the fire. Here’s a glimpse at what you can find in the event. Links and hunt details are at the bottom of this post.

This hunt has lots of cozy knits and Mishmash Fusion did a wonderful job with the texturing of the gift sweater dress and the gacha sweater dresses. The gift at Mishmash Fusion is a cute grey sweater dress with grey fur lined uggs and leggings (omega applier included) with detailing on the side. Myst’s gacha has several fun chevron sweater dresses that you can wear with the leggings and boots from the hunt gift. My personal favorite is the Bold Purple RARE. ❤

With the cold coming upon us, you might be looking for something to warm your house. Look no further! Well, after you find the hunt gift anyway… {Sickly SWEET} has a nice low prim fireplace to snuggle up in front of with warm crackling flames amidst freshly cut logs. I’ve adorned its mantle with other items from the event.

On the wall is a cute picture from Chiana Oh. If you have kids or are just looking to decorate for winter, this framed image would make a great focal point in any home. If you’re going out in the cold weather, try one of the Winter Warmers from Chiana Oh’s gacha machine. It comes in both a rezzable and wearable version in an assortment of styles. Dr. Who fans will be happy to spot a Doctor related one. (See it behind the monkey?) The sock monkey is one of many monkeys in a gacha from *Shabby Tabby* and are a great use of old worn out socks from winters past. I especially love *Shabby Tabby*’s gift Lumanaries; they are adorable candle holders that can be turned on and off and create a warm atmosphere. Put these little beauties anywhere you need a spot of light.

That is all for now. Stay tuned for another post on the Warm Socks Hunt soon!

Looking for a Breath of Life

Today I needed to spread my wings and take a stroll with a bit of magic. I’ve been following the blogging elf’s blog and decided to check out the quaint Shire as she suggested. I was not disappointed.  Grass covered, rolling hills, and cute homes for rent create a tranquil sanctuary.

We ❤ RP has fantastic items as always and I wanted to share more of the goodies from the current round that I’m wearing. I already blogged about the lovely hair Navi by Pr!tty, so this post is focused on the corset, capris legs, and deer skin tattoo.

First up, the Vampy Corset Bodysuit is really well made and detailed. I love that it’s broken up into three pieces to allow the wearer to find the best fit possible with the given sizes. This is perfect for those of us that like to show off our curves. A Hud comes with the corset that allows the wearer to change the metal parts color for easy outfit coordination.

The Capri Legs were a surprising find for me. I’ve not been drawn to faun type things before but they looked fun and I’m a curious cat, so why not? There are several color versions and the legs come with a Hud as well to change between silver or gold metal. Only modification I had to make was less leg muscle to fit within the metal band

Oh Deer.. by [the Skinnery] is a delightful tattoo that blends well and looks just like a young doe’s coat. Paired with the right accessories, this tattoo could make for some nice cat spots too in my opinion.  Deer, faun, cat; whatever the case, I love the detailing of this tattoo which covers the face, arms, chest, and legs. Included with the system layer tattoo are appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink Physique, and LeLutka Mesh Head.
