Phen & Moz do Christmas Breakfast

with 18 comments

*~*~*

I wanted to do a Holiday collaboration with my fellow blogger and pal, Phen.  So, after much fiddling about on the Home & Garden front, here’s our idea of what Christmas breakfast turned out to be in our Glam Kitchen. You’ll be able to see Phen’s version on her blog.

Phen’s looking after the turkey, it should be cooked by dinnertime, that’s if the turkeys let her. After all they think she’s cooking one of their friends but said bird actually came from the supermarket!  Moz is trying to eat his fry-up but the animals have their eyes on it, too, no wonder he’s looking annoyed, there’s nothing worse than a dog slobbering over your breakfast 🙂

We hope you had a laugh and enjoyed the scene as much as we did making it!

Christmas in Miniature

with 4 comments

 

In praise of the ornaments of Christmas!  I’ve been spending way too many lindens on holiday decoration gacha over at Tannenbaum and Arcade,  but what struck me the most was how intricate and beautiful the ornaments are this year. So they get a post all to themselves with extra info about three of my favourite holiday gacha, thus far.

*~*~*

The background is an upstairs room in 22769’s fabulous Arcade gacha – The Mountain Lodge.  There are 18 items to collect in this gacha and it’s 50L$ per Play.  If you get desperate for missing gacha pieces and can see the lining of your wallet, try Seraphim’s Yard Sale (Arcade prizes priced fairly at the original gacha prices).

*~*~*

A simply gorgeous folksy gacha, these Belen Tiny Houses by Serenity Style are all modify so you can flatten them to fit on walls if you want – makes them a versatile ornament. The Rare has tiny string lights just under the guttering which can make quite a difference to lighting, giving a lovely, soft glow.  It’s well worth trying to get this Rare.

*~*~*

My favourite ornament gacha by The Vordun Museum & Gallery.  There are no Rares to struggle getting, just 8 beautiful Commons made in the Delft Pottery style, most unusual and rather beautiful tree ornaments.

Hibernation – don’t wake me up until Spring!

For those of us that don’t really approve of Winter except for all the snuggling up to get nice and cosy 🙂

*~*~*

Some extra pictures of KITE’s Dorothy’s Cabin, an outstanding modern style cabin with four versions included. I really like the decking on the front of this building and the way it’s already covered with snow. Makes for easy decorating.

Wooden deck with steps to ground, door leads to a large inner room with picture windows at both ends for maximum views and light, and bleached wooden floorboards. Two inner sliding doors lead off to a couple of extra rooms, one more private than the other. Beautiful light wood texture.  Here’s the reverse view.

Snow on Everything with 22769 ~ [Bauwerk]

leave a comment »

Little Winter Cottage_large front elevation
You can have any Home & Garden item you like as long as there’s snow on it!  22769 ~ [Bauwerk] have released a number of winter sets which are superb. You’ll have to brave 3 Events to get all these but they are well worth lagging around for.

I think this is one of the most enchanting Christmas cottages I’ve seen this year and what’s more, you can get a version without the snowy roof and be able to use it all year round.

Little Winter Cottage_porch

There’s a lovely porch with open/close doors and a huge conservatory that has views to the front and side of the property. A lot of picture windows add to the light effect and make a small prefab spacious.

Little Winter Cottage_side elevation

cottage with and without snowtop – LI 50 – 52, footprint is approx 13.0 by 14.0 meters and 9.5 – 10.0 meters in height

Little Winter Cottage_conservatory

Little Winter Cottage_upstairs

Little Winter Cottage_cottage back

The brick walls are decorative landscaping items and they have snowy and non-snowy versions for all the pieces.  Very nice texturing on these with the red brick and gray slate tops. They’d look amazing as a walled garden for very little land impact, you could use a couple of the pillars as a gateway.

Garden Walls_long

“Winter Garden Walls Building Set”
Contains:
long wall with or without snowtop – LI 4 – 6, approx 8.3 meters long,  small wall with or without snowtop – LI 2 – 3, approx 5.6 meters long,  pillar with or without snowtop – LI 2, either

1 Rare and 8 Commons – 3 – 6 LI, bench has 8 single sit animations
Transfer/Modify and 50L$ per play

Now for the decorations. They are available at the Tannenbaum Holiday Market Event which runs until 25th December.

booktree table, linked and unlinked version – LI 7 for the linked

I particularly liked the booktree which makes a very amusing decoration for practically anywhere around the house.
