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!

The Hands of Time!

Finishing Touches_Hands of TimeI wasn’t going to do Halloween this year because I over did it last year with a week-long sim open house and multiple blog posts, however that all changed when I saw Finishing Touches eerie skeleton leg table and adorable gothic Halloween Cupcake Treats.  The Halloween Cupcake Treats are a three-tiered cupcake stand with three varieties including hot pink frosting with dark chocolate spiderweb, pink vanilla milk chocolate spider with licorice spider legs and jolly skull-eyes.  The decorative treats inspired a stylized gothic black & white Tim Burton-ish living space complete with clock filled room, covered sheet chairs and spirits from beyond.  Pop over to Finishing Touches and delve into the deliciously decadent gothic Halloween delights!

Autumn Glow

Dreamscapes Art Gallery_Autumn Glow (Photo Hunt -Oct 2015)I adore fall, it’s my favorite time of the year to decorate.  From the glorious colors, to the fresh crisp smell in the air, and the yummy baked goods, it’s simply divine.  It’s easy to be inspired by this magical season and design a warm cozy retreat.  Today, I’ve created an autumnal living space using tons of free hunts items from The Seasons Story 2nd Anniversary, Chez Moi Spooky Hunt, and The Photographers Hunt $5L (all ending October 31, 2015).  I also included Sway’s Victor Wood Burning Stove & Storage Bench both deeply discounted 50%- 75% off for the Mix Event also ending October 31st.  Lastly, Sway’s Erika Set in Harvest (available @ Uber, ending today 10/23/15) was the ideal living room collection to use, bringing all the colors of fall into the space. The Erika Set includes a couch with 16 single & friends animations (up to 3 avis’s), 8 couple animations, 3 texture options for the pillows, coffee table, and decorative accessorizes (2 vases, bowl with apples).  There are numerous hunts and freebies being offered now, so take advantage of the gifts and have fun decorating!

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.
