Let it Snow!

with 7 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.

Here’s full details of the Home & Garden products I used in the scene today:-

Countdown to Christmas

Things that make you go OhEmGee, look at the state of your office! Thus it is with pre-holiday organisation.  Even the pup is amused or perhaps he’s considering the tray of figs.  I know the kitten is considering the cardinals.
