O Tannenbaum!

with 2 comments

“O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum
(O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree)
Dein Kleid will mich was lehren:
(Your dress wants to teach me something:)
Die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
(Your hope and durability)
Gibt Trost und Kraft zu jeder Zeit
(Provide comfort and strength at any time)
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
(O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree)
Das soll dein Kleid mich lehren
(That’s what your dress does teach me)” Ernst Anschütz, 1824

Christmas Trees became popular in Britain around 1848 when the Illustrated London News published a drawing of the Royal Family celebrating around a decorated fir tree, a tradition that was reminiscent of Prince Albert’s childhood in Germany. Soon every home had a tree decorated with candles, sweets, fruit, homemade decorations and small gifts.

Our elegant virtual fir tree is by Botanical and you’ll find three versions of it at Tannenbaum Event in the Tree Section. All the beautiful ornaments are from two current sets by Fancy Decor. You’ll need a steady hand and some quiet time out to decorate a similar tree, it’s useful to stand back frequently and check that the overall effect is balanced. Everything is modify so if you want a larger tree like I did in this scene, it’s easy to upsize the ornaments.

Park Life

I’ve been on a week’s leave and am not really supposed to be back until Monday, but I couldn’t resist doing another Autumnal scene!  It’s such a beautiful season and is rather short in our virtual world.  This scene looks like the foliage density of a park but it doesn’t take many trees and shrubs to get a really good effect,  so if you wanted to repeat this landscape on a more permanent basis than I did just for blogging’s sake, it wouldn’t break the prim bank.  Always a good thing to know.
