Welcome Autumn!

Autumn Gazebo 2015Wishing you a very belated harvest greetings!  Sorry, real life kidnapped me again.  In some ways I feel like Second Life is my mistress (or the male version in my case), I love the creative minds, the ability to design and the freedom to explore new ideas but it’s becoming difficult to carve out a few hours each week.  I’m going to finish up my outstanding projects and take an extended break.  But before I get ahead of myself, I want to share with you my version of autumn glamping.  The crisp air, the crunchy fall leaves and glorious harvest moon is beckoning us outdoor and the ideal backdrop to showcase some new releases from Sway’s, Serenity Styles and The Mustard Seed.

Backyard Glamping!

Sway's Tent full

Remember when you were a kid and your parents used worn sheets, blankets and pillows to set up a fort in your backyard to watch shooting stars?  Well not being a very outdoorsy girl, my Mom always had cozy blankies and pillows around just in case star-gazing was needed.  The closest I ever came to backyard camping was sleeping in my warm playhouse, but woke the next morning cuddled in my own bed.

the collage logo 2013Two events I want to highlight, The Collage (opening tomorrow March 23rd) & The Feeling Event (closing March 25th).  To create the ideal star-gazing tent, I used Sway’s adorable spring purple and lime polka dot Cozy Tent [Shelter] in Crocus, an exclusive print available at The Collage.  The Crocus tent comes with a hay bail (multiple single & couple poses), and lite lanterns.  Since, I’m Glamping (glamorous camping), the BePPin Casual Spring Collection dress is perfect.  The Beppin dress is an exclusive item for The Feeling Event and is available in four prints.  I paired the dress with the Anggun Spring Necklaces (a gathca item, at The Feeling Event).  Pop over, grab specials and have fun Glamping!

Landmarks:
The Feeling Event (3/15-25/2014)
The Collage (3/23-4/5/2014) 

Look at how cute the back of the tent is 😀
