Bask in the Glow of Autumn

Autumn Porch Overview Framed

The waning days of autumn are upon us and for Americans, Thanksgiving is 12 days away.  The grocery stores are filling up with families buying turkey and all the fixings, soon the malls will have hurried shoppers busting down the black Friday doors, and before we know it Christmas and the New Year will be here.  Now is the time to slow down, reflect on the past year, be thankful for friends and family, and celebrate your blessings.  Recently, I did just that, after a few unfortunate incidents, I had too much and needed to walk away from Second Life.  I was drained, discouraged, disappointed, and deflated.  This Thanksgiving, I’m grateful to Niki Silverweb, Ayla Zhoy and Morgan Mickalobe who supported and encouraged me to return to SL.  Your kindness, care and friendship mean the world to me.  So this Thanksgiving who are your thankful for?

Side Porch View Framed

My love for virtual interior design was calling out and I wanted to design an autumnal cottage with a large veranda located by a lake with views of apple orchards and snow-capped mountains.  I envisioned Lake Tahoe, CA in the early fall when the weather is wonderful, the air is crisp but not too chilly cold, the nights are still, and the trees are bare with views of clear skies, filled with stars and full moons.   The ivy covered porch is overflowing with cozy spots, delicious delights, unexpected guests, and nods to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Creating a warm, welcoming, inviting place with crackling fire from the hearth is sure to be the area where your guests will relax after the harvest feast!
