Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice- Tylar's Treasures Fireside LRIn just a few weeks it will be the American holiday Thanksgiving where families and friends gather to enjoy a feast, football and gratitude for all they have.  Today, I’ve styled living space using Tylar’s Treasures Firelight Collection deeply discounted 50% off at Perfect Ten event until tomorrow, Sunday, November 15, 2015.  The collection includes black leather tufted armchairs, black wooden coffee table complete with pumpkin bowl display and brown marble fireplace with mirror and decorative accessories.  This grouping is a nice accompany to a larger set or perfect on its own.  I paired the Firelight set with The Artist Shed La Chaise de Citrouille, a $1L gift on the Stuff The Bird hunt (11/1-30/15).  I’m also playing caught up on a few rounds of The Challenge I’ve missed including Hanging Hanky Lights by Chiana Oh (Fabric Sept round) and Sputnik Light from %Percent Furniture (Victorian Nov round).  Sway’s is offering the Victoria Hanging Lamps at Fantasy Gacha Carnival (until 12/6/15) and Darret Stone Fireplace Set {using Fire Poker only} at The Liaison Collaborative (till 11/30/15).  Helping to create the cozy and warm space is Sway’s Kaden Rugs (past FLF item).  Finally, The Mustard Seed’s Golden Autumn Decor Set which consist of the tree of life table, bowl of pumpkins, acorn doll and 4 golden concept frame wall art enhance the autumnal room.  Hope you enjoyed my pumpkin spice living space and take advantage of the great deals on the grid.  If we don’t meet again till before Turkey Day, I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Fall is Calling!

Dreamscapes Art Gallery-Autumn 2015Autumn is quickly approaching, the leaves are turning a golden shade, the air is crisp and the smell of yummy delights waft through the house.  I love fall and it’s my favorite time of the year to decorate.  The season makes your home and landscaping look so inviting.  Dreamscapes Art Gallery has released a number of new autumnal decor items perfect for your landscaping needs.  I styled the Tumbleweed One tiny house by Dorian, a cute one-room log cabin trailer with loft space and bathroom (7 x 20m, 21 prims).  I loved the painted red door with engraved deer outline, I thought it would be the perfect backdrop to showcase Dreamscapes new items.

Autumn Front StepsDreamscapes Art Gallery-VIP HaybaleFirst up, is Dreamscapes Art Gallery new VIP Group Gift Autumn Haybale Deco with Candles and Apples for Sale sign.  I flanked the new group gift with What Next Orchard Decor Set (ladder, basket and fallen apple decor).  Behind the haybale is The Mustard Seed Sunflower Trio with Frog and Bee, available for 50% off at Perfect Ten (until 9/15/15).  Finally, Dreamscapes Topiary Pumpkins with Lights welcome guests and border the porch steps.

Dreamscapes Art Gallery- Porch Left SeatingOn the porch I styled two separate entertainment areas; to the left of the front door I used the Dreamscapes Vintage Pallet Set, which includes a bar table, three bar stools with different fabric cushions and a tray of Halloween cookies.  I accessorized with Dreamscapes Apples Wood BucketsAutumn Deco Shutter E and La Galleria Sunflowers in Pumpkin decor.

Dreamscapes Art Gallery- Porch Right Haybale SeatThe right side of the porch, I used another Dreamscapes Autumn Haybale Deco B with lantern, plaid blanket seat and pumpkin decor including a carved pumpkin, Autumn Deco Shutter B and Pumpkin Bucket D.  Dreamscapes has a number of haybales and decorative shutters, so be sure to check out all the versions.

Dreamscapes Art Gallery-PumpkinsIn the foreground of the trailer house are some more adorable Dreamscape harvest landscape items consisting of Autumn Deco Tree Stump with carved pumpkins, Candle Chair Autumn, and Market Cart B with Apples and Pumpkin Bucket B.  I also used What Next new VIP Group Gift Scarecrow with texture change fall greeting sign.

The Mustard Seed-Honey for Sale The Mustard Seed Gentle Overhang Tree & Autumn Days Climbing Vine/Trellis (both texture change & on sale) are placed in the back right corner of the landscaping.  On the market cart is The Mustard Seed Honey for Sale Set with sign and vintage beehive honey pot, on sale for 50% off at Perfect Ten event.  I hope you enjoyed my autumn hideaway and are inspired to create a warm and inviting landscaping using Dreamscapes Art Gallery items.

Lastly, I want to mention Dreamscapes Art Gallery parcel has undergone a renovation and expanded with two large stores, multiple buildings, landscaping spaces, and a larger art gallery area.  Carlotta Ceawlin, owner and designer of Dreamscapes is generously opening her art gallery to guest artists for free.  Check out the rules below and follow-up with Carlotta (she’s really nice :-).

Dreamscapes Art Gallery – Guest Artists

With the renovation of my parcel I’ve decided to offer space for guest artists at my gallery, which I did in the past and always wanted to happen again.  There will be no costs for invited artists to display, but there are some requirements.

Dreamscapes Art Gallery is an established location since years and shows on the top page under art/gallery in SL search.  I’m looking for high quality SL artwork only (no RL paintings, photos, etc).  The artwork must be your own and free of any copyright issues, which will be checked by me (no exceptions to this rule!).  Artwork must be PG, tasteful, non violent and again, high quality only!

The guest artist space is located outside, behind the barn on a brick wall, similar to the new setup I chose for my own artwork.  Each guest artist can display 2 works on one wall section.  The art should be placed next to each other and in a preferably same size as mine are shown, to ensure an esthetic look.  The artwork can be framed or not and 1 LI per piece.  It can be set for sale, if you wish so.  No scripts are allowed, also no info/LM givers and similar can be placed – just the artwork. 🙂

Each guest artist gets his space for three weeks and can change displayed work as often as wanted – there’s no rule to do so though.  But you may want to show off a new work, then feel free.

So how do you get invited?  Send me a notecard with your name and link to your work (flickr, etc), or inworld location to look at.  I’ll consider having you as guest artist and let you know!

PS: Space is limited and the selection of artists is totally subjective by me.  If you don’t get invited doesn’t mean your work isn’t good or high quality, maybe it just doesn’t *speak to me.  Don’t be sad and don’t be mad 🙂 Art is often a matter of personal taste.

Greets, Carlotta
