After a cup or two of hot chocolate, night fell on the North Pole and the Misses showed me my room for the evening.  The rustic charm of the winter lodge living room continued into the guest bedroom.  The Potomac Signature Homes Holiday Lane bedroom is a cozy retreat with an oak four-poster bed adorned with garland and wrapped in red and green wool tartan duvet, matching plaid lampshades and quilted wreath.  Oak side tables and dresser, snowflake rug, and a sparkling frosted Christmas tree complete with quilted handmade tree skirt, candle and string lights, ornaments, poinsettia, and “spinning” silver snowflake topper welcomes and charms the bedroom. The Holiday Lane bedroom is available at the SL Christmas Expo 2014!

The side wall is decorated with Dreamscapes Art Gallery Christmas Forest wood trees which create the feeling of Christmas glow.  Finishing the bedroom is the comfy sage and poinsettia Jolly Velvet Chaise Couple Lounge, decked out with snowflake blankets and pillows by Circa Living and a charming holiday themed corner side table with wooden tree and Christmas signage by The Mustard Seed (both Homestuff Hunt gifts).

On our shopping trip, I picked up some cute Christmas lingerie.  First up is Carrie’s Lingerie Holiday Grace lace and silk poinsettia print bra and boyshorts, part of the Penny Wishes Hunt (a portion of the sale is donated to RFL) at the SL Christmas Expo 2014 AviChoice sim.  I accessorized the Carrie’s Holiday Grace set with Purple Moon Cycle in Emerald & Topaz Set (Hunt for the Bells- 100% proceeds donated to RFL) and Cucbis dans la Chocolaterie Bracelet & Ring (Naughty or Nice Hunt), both items available on Sim 1 at the SL Christmas Expo 2014 until December 15, 2014.  Wreath with teddy bear and trees by Potomac Signature Homes.

And, last is Mona Red Kitty Set, a red and black kitty cat printed boyshort and bra set by Blacklace Lingerie, part of the KittyCats Advent Calendar.  I’m also sporting Chop Zuey Hearts of Hope set, both items free for all.  Joy to the World, and look forward to a glimpse into Santa’s toy land tomorrow!

Purple Moon St Patrick's Day dress 2014

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

This is a day that everyone loves.  You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate, just have fun and drink some green beer.  And don’t forget to celebrate by embellishing your Second Life home with a few decorative green furniture pieces (like below).  Instantly your home has holiday spirit and will become party central where everyone feels comfortable and loved.

Homestuff Hunt items- Office Overview 2

For me in RL, I was invited to a St. Patty’s Day party by my 80/90-year-old neighbors (aka they needed a designated driver) and for evening plans, it’s pub crawl nite with my European coworker, who can drink me under the table before we enter the bar (aka they needed a designated driver).  But, my Second Life plans are very exciting, I’m throwing Snowflake (our cat) her 1st Annual Shamrock Party with all her feline friends.  I needed a good strong chair to hold up to all the scratching, Park Place’s FREE Gold Corduroy Chair & matching table (Wee Little Leprechaun hunt item) is perfect.  I accessorized with  a few furry bears for amusement and served cookies and nonalcoholic green beer (on a foot stool), so all alley cats can enjoy a good time…

                                                                                                                                        St

For the 2 legged guests, tables are set with muffins, Hot cross buns, Irish Coffee and green beer are placed around the room.  Blending natural tones offsets the green chairs and decorative ornaments.  For the party, I will wear Purple Moon’s  Patty Gown in White/Green (PM group gift, above) and for bed (after the party) Blacklace’s Infatuated Green Lingerie (below).  Happy St. Patrick’s Day, there are lots of hunts dedicated to the holiday; it’s worth checking out here!  Enjoy and I would love to see how you decorated your home, share with me on Facebook.

Purple Moon is one of my favorite stores.  Creator Poulet Koenkamp designs lovely evening gowns, and great casual pieces that you can mix and match.  A reasonable 50: join fee considering all the wonderful designs, group gift, 55L Thursday & 60L weekend specials AND some of the best hunts!  For the spooky season, Poulet and the PM team is having a Halloween Hunt with 16 skull hidden around the store with endless possibilities of mixing and matching.  These gifts are PM current styles in glorious bronze, rusts, siennas and oranges including one of my favorite sheaths, Boho skirt, top, jeans and accessories.  I hate to admit that I own all of these items in different colors, so this is a great opportunity to have fun and be garbed in the colors of the season. The hunt will run until Halloween, October 31, 2013 SLT.  Below, I show the group gift gown and free jewelry set for members and non-members.  Poulet promises there are more Halloween goodies to come.  Taxi please…
