On the street you live

with 13 comments

 

“I have often walked down this street before;
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once am I several stories high.
Knowing I’m on the street where you live.

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of ev’ry door?
No, it’s just on the street where you live!”  By the great Nat King Cole

*~*~*

The above is one of my favourite songs that somehow I associate with Christmas for no other reason than my mum had a Nat King Cole compilation album that she used to break out over the holidays and this was one of the songs on it.

UnKindness’s latest release of a beautiful country cottage with large glass windows and door plus snowy roof gave me inspiration for the rest of the scene above.  Click on the picture for a larger version.

Santa’s Afternoon Hideaway

with 4 comments

The Elves noticed that Santa disappeared some afternoons. He couldn’t be contacted at all.  We thought he was up to something but no matter how we tried, we couldn’t find him until today – and that was only by chance!

So we were gathered around  the fire, enjoying the warmth and just being out on a cold, clear day. Looking around for some more logs to keep the fire going, I noticed a strange reddish glint in the house. Now nobody had lived there for years and although things never get shabby in Second Life® unless they are textured that way in the first place, the glimmering looked out of place.

I clicked open the door and… well!  What a lot of gossip to tell you 🙂 The room was decked out luxuriously and the glinting that had so intrigued us happened to be Rudolph’s red nose. He was annoyed at being disturbed. He’d been waiting for Santa, having made new cakes and got the tea on (Earl Grey, naturally).

We noticed Santa’s hat resting on the comfortable looking leather chair, more evidence the reindeer was telling the truth. There was a blazing fire, and it all looked so comfortable and cosy in the afternoon sun. We decided to beat a hasty retreat and go ride on the train at Kushi Textures! It’s Santa’s North Pole extravaganza for families and beautifully done 🙂

We’re not giving away the location of Santa’s Afternoon Hideaway because… well, the old guy needs his afternoons off in peace. He’s got lots to do in the coming days!
