Feeling Peckish

with 5 comments

When you’ve gone to bed and the birds think the table is set up so nicely, they are going to use it!

This new dining set from KraftWork is so beautiful, I couldn’t wait to try it out.  My windlight is set at a warm, cosy tone for intimate evening dining, so do check out the vendor photo below so you can see what the set looks like in a whiter light.

The scene is set in the Laverton Skybox, from the latest Raindale gacha which is at Lootbox.  This is the opposite end to the fireplace.  I’ll show more of this in the next post.

I went along to Ibi’s (8f8) to check out his new gacha (which I’ll use in the next post) and found these cute little vintage birds as well. There’s mister and miss versions so I thought they went together quite well in dining pairs.  I got three Mr Honeys so I don’t know what that’s telling me!

Too much Turkey?

with 5 comments

 

Have we eaten too much turkey?  Feeling over full?  Why not take a leaf out of these little chaps’ book and do some exercise.  How about a sleigh ride or a walk or even a fabulous snowy hot tub session, the choice is yours.

Winter Wonder in our Hearts

with 2 comments

 

A very Happy Christmas to my Friends, Readers and Sponsors!

Sylva, “Stars & Snowflakes” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S7v3qwBplY
“Christmas eve, the lights are glowing
In the hallway and in my dreams
And somewhere in my heart it’s snowing
In the place that still believes

Silent night the stars are shining
And ice is forming in the dark
As we stay warm beneath the covers
Winter wonder in our hearts

Frozen whisper I still hear you
Singing sweetly of our love
Tender songs will keep me near you
Underneath the moon above

And softly in the night we’ll wander
Through the clouds of fallen snow
Hand in hand we’ll make our own way
There’s just a few more hours to go

Gently in our dreams I’ll hold you
As we lie with the stars above
And all the times I should have told you
Happy Christmas oh my love”

Winter Glamping

with 6 comments

The Husky family have taken to glamping this winter! They adore their new vehicle, the Kraftstream. They can even sling their sleighs on it, lazy canines. Look at Dad pegged out, he must have imbibed way too much Christmas cheer… or Hans, have you made that bench too comfy?  Maybe Junior will wake him up with a snowball 🙂

The Kraftstream has a couple of versions included in the pack, one which is furnished and one which is just the vehicle itself. There’s a great decorating HUD included. Options include awning on and off, and versions of interior finishing, string lights, fabric patterns, and dinette décor. There are even Christmas fabric options included, it’s enough to satisfy most ardent decorating fiddlers.

Let it Snow!

with 6 comments

“Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” sung by Dean Martin

Yes I know Frankie sings this as well but I adore the dulcet tones of Mr Martin – compare and contrast as they say in exams!

This cute little scene takes place in the “Mountain Ski Lodge” skybox by Fourth Wall, which is just perfect for Christmas decorating! It’s not just this main room that constitutes the skybox but there’s also a side room which is meant to be the bedroom as it has an attached dressing room, all in warm wood. There’s a version with snow surround, and that’s what I’ve been using here. If you can’t do without it after the season has passed, simply choose the version without surround.
