Fall’s Finishing Touches

On Sunday’s post, I gave you a sneak peek of Finishing Touches Killing Time Twisted Hunt: Time Warp gift.  The Killing Time collection is so wonderful that I wanted to showcase it and some coordinating sets from the original and creative 24Karat Roux of Finishing Touches.  The Twisted Hunt gift features a Salvador Dali inspired bloody melting clock with timepiece canvas display, clockwork inlay bench and table, stool {not shown}, and three hourglass side tables with dripping blood instead of sand.  The gift is sublime and will make a statement for this upcoming spooky season.  Ms. Roux also has a Twisted mini hunt and generously re-released the past 8 gifts from the Fall & Spring Twisted Hunt at her store.

24Karat Roux designed corresponding sets, Buckskin Living Room, Executive Privilege Office Suite and the Hourglass Table & Chair collection, that will blend perfectly with the Killing Time hunt gift.  The Buckskin Living Room set includes a suede couch (2 styles), armchair, side tables, lamps with suede shades, coffee table, storage unit, richly textured oriental rug, clock, ornamental bowls, hourglass display, and decorative plants.  The color palette in deep rusts, soothing sages, glorious golds, and warm walnut beckon the harvest season, transitioning seamlessly into the holidays.  The Buckskin Set is a cozy, inviting and stylish living collection ideal for your SL home.  Save 50% off during the month of September when purchasing the complete set!

Every home today needs an office and 24 has crafted a well-appointed, detailed and welcoming Executive Privilege Office Suite with lounge area to complement the Buckskin Living Room Set and Killing Time hunt gift.  The lounge area contains plush brown suede lounge and armchair, walnut coffee table with decorative items, side table with copper vase twig display, magazine rack, a small burgundy, brown and gold rug, and stacks of books. Cozy up and settle in for a good read on a harvest moon.

Adjacent is the Executive Privilege Office with its walnut library pieces, bookcases, shelving and desk set.  The office is perfect for working, studying, or relaxing.  The collection includes bookcases with working glass inlay doors, shelves, a desk set with suede brown chair, large burgundy, brown, gold rug, and large wood clock.  I used the hourglass table & chair set to create a library table great for meetings, or perfect for that heavy reference book. The collections all correlate with each other and can easily be mixed or matched to suit your home needs and style.  All items available at Finishing Touches.

Happy Thanksgiving!

In the USA, Thursday, November 28 is Thanksgiving, a day to reflect on giving thanks for family, friends, and all who have touched your life.  Noted by the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, football games and the big Turkey feast, followed by triptafan induced naps.  Families plan their agenda to hit all the Black Friday sales and doorbusters the next morning (or in some cases later that evening).  Most people decorate their homes and dinner tables with candles, acorns, fall leaves and cornucopias.

I want to share my Second Life Thanksgiving decor with you.  I also want to express my thanks to old friends, new friends and some of the great people I had the pleasure to meet this year.  I wish you and your families (in Real Life & Second Life) all the best!
