Let it Snow!

with 10 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!” ~ Frank Sinatra

And while we were snuggling in front of the fire, the penguins took over the ice rink. cheeky things.  Although I doubt that the skates will fit them!

Here’s some close-ups of the Duvet Day gacha, same name as our title here, in a better light so you can see how well made they are.

The game is afoot!

with 4 comments

 

After a trying night spent wandering around the London Docks which had been on more than one occasion compared to an intractable cesspool of questionable humanity, Holmes and Watson collapsed on the sofa. The basset hound was particularly interested in the pungent smell of herrings emanating from the good doctor’s suit and sundry other scents that would only engage the attention of dogs, so he snuggled up as best he could without fainting. The soft light of a foggy morning applicable to all capital cities of the time, made puddles on the carpet or that could have been Watson’s boots, of course.

Holmes was reaching for his opium supplies when Watson suggested that a foot rub would be much better. According to a recent letter in The Lancet, the termini of many of the lower back nerve plexuses ended in the feet and could be treated efficaciously by massage. The odour of herrings masked any other lingering impressions of the great unwashed and Watson went to work enthusiastically until the dog decided that enough was enough and went to repose in his basket in the kitchen.

After a while, even Holmes had to admit that the game was afoot. At least Watson’s ministrations would reduce his monthly opium outlay if nothing else. His breathing was laboured, though, and when Mrs Hudson came in to open the windows as a certain acrid pong had mysteriously pervaded the lower flats of the building, nobody complained.

*~*~*

Sorry – couldn’t resist! The sofa contains, among other couples poses, one entitled Foot Rub.

Now, before you’re all forced to join the dog in his kitchen sanctuary, here’s the spectacular Home & Garden products I used in detail:-

Secrets of Arabia

“I was running at the speed of life
Through morning’s thoughts and fantasies
Then I saw your eyes
at the cross fades
Secret secrets never seen
Secret secrets ever green” ~ David Bowie ~

If you haven’t been to We ❤ Roleplay this month, do go along and check out all the wares. It’s a really good round – especially the Assassins Collection by 22769 ~ [Bauwerk].  I’m using a couple of items from the set – the tent and rug, and a couple more from the decoration pack – hanging rug and fireplace.  I set these out on the building platform and that song by the late, great Bowie came to mind!  I’m not quite sure what the secrets he’s singing about actually are unless it’s something to do with the gay underground there but anyways, fantastic set, fantastic song 🙂

Then you’re in the running to win every skin give to the Skins Bloggers for a year PLUS 1000L gift card PLUS you’ll get access to the new Event skins before they are even released. Wonderful!

The second set is based on all the items you might find in an abandoned fairground, including the entrance gate. This is a gacha and it’s for The Gacha Guardians which also runs until the end of October. Here’s their website which will be helpful to read as it’s a game as well as an event and you need a special HUD.
