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.

Ms. Lavinia Godenot, creator and owner of The Mustard Seed is offering a fresh takes on fall decor, on sale until Thursday, October 1, 2015 (all under $150L).  The new offerings include Happy Autumn Welcome Sign with pumpkins, leaves and Indian corn (group gift), Autumn Apple Cider Patio Set (texture change chairs) with hot cider, sweet treats, woodland bird umbrella chair and apple basket, Autumn Haybale with sleeping kitty (harvest sign & potted plants), Barrel of Fun Corn with multiple animations and Autumnal Fireplace (2 size, small & large) great for indoors or out.  I also used TMS Sunflower Trio and Gentle Overhang Tree (texture change).

TMS Fireplace & Serenity StyleTo complete the decoration of the pavilion, I used Serenity Style Country Swing, Birdhouse Fence wall decor, Autumn Wood Blacks & Babe Doll (offered at Tres Chic till 10/5), My Fall Set cabinet with bowl and floral frame (available @ The Fantasy Collective until 10/15).  I also styled the gazebo with What Next Harvest Garland, Wreath, texture change Welcome Sign and Pumpkin Bucket.

Finally, Sway’s has everything you will need to enjoy a night under the stars starting with the Birch Gazebo (new release for The Mix, ending 9/30), Camp Out Tents & Oil Lamps available at The Arcade (ending 9/30), Walden Cuddle Log with texture change blanket (2 versions) and Walden Campfire Set including log/tree stump with pillow, camp kettle/mug, and marshmallow/sausage on sticks.  Hope you enjoyed my take on glamping and are inspired to redecorate your home with these great deals.

Angel Summer Tent- The Lexi project

Happy August!  I can’t believe it August, can you?  Not sure where the time went, but I’m in denial.  On the up side, just 4 months till Christmas and soon I can start styling interiors and exteriors for my favorite season, Fall.  But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s squeeze out every last-minute of summer.  When I think of this time of the year, I’m transported back to my childhood with tons of sleepover parties under the stars, party games and our best-loved (often well-worn out) teddy bears and dollies along for the fun.  Fast forward a few years, the kids are all grown-up and the stuffies are left to play and cause mischief.  Using Serenity Style Angel Summer Tent from The Lexi Project, I created a whimsical corner hideaway.  The Lexi Project is going strong and each day the grand donation tally is updated on the The Lexi Project blog.  We still have not reached the goal of $12k, but I have faith we will.  You have eight more shopping days (August 9, 2015) to check out over 350+ designers and creators exclusive items with 100% of all proceeds donated to The Lexi Fund.  So, get shopping and know that your purchase will help one of our own Second Life residents.

The whole space was created with Serenity Style products.  I would particularly like to highlight The Country Drawer set available today ONLY (Saturday, August 1, 2015) for The Neighbourhood and The Country Chest & Cutie Monster from Cosmopolitan Bi-Weekly Event ending tomorrow Sunday, August 2, 2015.  I also want to feature the Gypsy Soul Dreamcatcher over the tent bed, part of  the My Gypsy Soul Caravan on sale at Tres Chic until August 5th and the Wooden Swing Bench & Tic-Toc Wall Art available at The Fantasy Collective through August 15. Have fun with these cool unique design offers.  Happy weekend & happy shopping!
