I resisted the impulse to wear the "holiday" version of G Field's dress and shoes in Red. You can find the Red versions over there for free as her Christmas gift, but I hope that you won't be able to resist the other colors like this mint that are for sale for just L$50 each. How can you say no?

The cute little pink deer and its brown sister are two of the Inspiration Point hunt prizes! Go now don't miss! There are lots of other cute things but I don't have time to blog them before it's over.

Aw don't you love my new baby? The stork delivered me an Abominable Snow Baby! She is a gift ... and includes both an attachment and an Avatar. Cute cute!! Now I just need to figure out what she eats.

The Arcade, We Love Roleplay and Collabor88 are all drawing to a close, but I'm sure all these lovelies will be heading back to their Main Stores. If you want to go to the Secret Store for the Coat, you should wear an invisible avatar cause they are having a FABULOUS hunt over there and it's a bit laggy. You shouldn't miss that either!

On my little slice of the human family tree, Christmas runs through January 5, followed by Three Kings Day on January 6. A good enough excuse to keep showing you Holiday goodies? I think so!

Dress: ColdLogic "Seasons Greetings" (multipack gift)
Shoulder Frippery: ieQED "Antler Pauldrons" (gift, also in green)
Christmas Stocking: by Schadenfreude (this year's includes a Silentsparrow plushie!)

Eyes: Poetic Color "Christmas Tale" (gift)
Eye Makeup: Nuuna "Yule Green 2" (multipack gift)



This season's installment of the Liaison Collaborative was extra fun for me with its holiday feel and because its vendors added gacha to the regular lineup of Home Furnishings. For example, the Mont Blanc owls are in the gacha and the owl clock is one of the rares. The rest of the set is so flexible because yes, you can color it in red and green as I have, but the chair and coat rack come with HUDs to change the upholstery to other colors too. The lamps also come in blue or gold. Don't you love the bent-wood rocker?

The Captain's Coat isn't a very practical item of dress but that's probably why I like it so much. Most officers don't have ten spare minutes every morning to dedicate to lacing up. :D  ... I hope you don't mind that I tinted the inner shirt a Plum color, it used to be gray with royal blue piping. Still available a little longer over at the Victorian edition of Genre.

And these lovely suede boots! They come either plain or with the fabulous metallic tooling on the cuffs. Perfect for space pirates, or high elves in middle-earth. You'll be seeing me in these again I promise.

This outfit is a little dark so I woke it up with some red. Rudy the Reindeer is today's Fifty Linden Friday special over at Silentsparrow, so you have only a couple more hours to go get it at that price! Offered in regular and transferrable gift-giving versions.

This sweet furred jacket from LIV-Glam came with some eighties-retro baggy pants that I couldn't bring myself to wear because no matter how totally rad they are, I already lived in the eighties once. LOL. That's okay, I adore the jacket's side zipper, leather trim and structured shoulders. And this Furry hat and hair by Lamb is an instant fave cause it includes a HUD to retexture the hat to a bunch of cute fabrics.

It's snowing as I speak and my daughter was twenty minutes late for school this morning because the traffic was crawling along at about five miles per hour the whole way. I'm listening to the news talking about the power lines that are down around town. I'm so grateful that her vacation starts tomorrow. In keeping with the lovely but inhospitable weather, a winter white post. I do enjoy ice skating while I am inside wearing pajamas. :D


If these pictures load slowly, I apologize on behalf of Flickr which is messing about with their freaking display settings again. I really really wish they would stop trying to "improve" their interface, I preferred it THE WAY IT WAS! (*rant over*)

Baby its Cold One

It's so cold outside that even online all I want to do is stay in with some cocoa. With things so busy right now, the week has sped by and today is already the last day of Relay for Life's Christmas Expo, and here I am to blog the last bits and bobs I have, and to encourage you to go before time runs out. Go now! This fun jacket is really for men but it's transferrable so you can give it to your man if you want to take him to a party all spiffed up.

Baby its Cold Two

How about this cute jacket and sweater set? It came with a pair of black pants too but they didn't fit well with the shoes.

Branchings Closeup

Ladies, I'm not even sure what to call these stunning jewels. They're not exactly earrings, are they? When I finally noticed that they hang from my temples, I felt stunned in a way that I usually don't feel until I'm in an art museum. It's so disconcerting. And hard core. I think the aggressive arty lashes go well, did I do it right?

Branchings Medium

Secretly I feel overdressed, but the outfit is hot and cool at the same time, and I'm ready for an Art Gallery, both to see and to be seen.

Dogue Medium

I love my baby dogue. She isn't new, but I checked and this puppy-in-a-bag is still free on the Marketplace, and the purse is color-change, so you can color-coordinate her with a whole bunch of outfits. In this case that's easier because the top and the shoes also change texture. The dress can also be green or monotone gray.

Dogue Full

And the shoes come with a HUD that changes to forty-eight colors. That's enough isn't it? These are not SLink feet, but the feet are very nice, built into the shoes, and not too hard to color match with a little practice. There are also several shades of polish for the toenails built into the HUD ...

Dark Noel

Perhaps this dark gothic dress is not what you imagined for your Holidays, but you can't deny its beauty. I adore the inky poinsettias and the sweetly seductive Fascinator. Another lovely find at the Christmas Expo!

on the Sideboard: Snowflake @ Expo

Did you have an old sideboard in your home when you were growing up? You know, the one that did double duty as a buffet when your parents had a party. The one that held the neighbor gifts and that fruitcake. So here is my sideboard with some of my holiday treats. I love pixel food!

Myrrine @ Expo and Art Dummy @ Four Walls

A shop called Myrrine (new or new-to-me?) has a cute spot at the Christmas Expo, that's where I picked up the Gingerbread cookie displays and the strings of stars. One string is just wooden stars, but the others are lights that cycle through the color spectrum. I'm also loving these neutral snowflake chairs that are Art Dummy's entry in the Four Walls hunt, and all four are L$20. Can't beat that!

Snowflake: by Atelier Visconti (at Christmas Expo)
Light Marquee: Apple Fall "Sweet Dreams"
Angel Chimes: by LAQ Décor (gift available in store or on Marketplace)
Bundt Cake: Bauwerk "Ring Cake"
Cherry Yummies: Apple Fall "Cherry Voulevants" (at the Arcade Gacha)
Pudding: Apple Fall "Christmas Pudding" (at the Arcade Gacha)
Cabinet: Zigana "Apothecary Cabinet"
Gingerbread Branches: by Myrrine (at Christmas Expo)
Christmas Star Lights: by Myrrine (at Christmas Expo)
Chairs: Art Dummy! "Wintertide. (chairs)" (at the Four Walls Hunt)



Dysfunctional Designs Wreath @ Expo

I'm still monkeying around with the Christmas décor over at my place. Would you like to see a couple more things I bought at the Christmas Expo? I bought two things from Dysfunctional Designs. The first is this fun and colorful wreath hanging over my mantle. My favorite thing about it is that it is scripted on touch to change the colors of the baubles and ribbon to a whole bunch of colors, so I'll be able to use it again another time with a different color scheme. This year is all red and blue green.

Dysfunctional Designs Christmas Tree @ Expo

I also picked out this pretty tree over at the Expo's Tree Lot, also from Dysfunctional Designs. Yes I'm a sucker for lavender. And flocking. And lavender flocking. :D ... All the trees at the Tree Lot are for charity, so I'll tuck this tree away with my collection. Maybe next Christmas I'll do my home up in purple.

Wreath: Dysfunctional Designs "Holiday Wreath" (texture change)
Tree: Dysfunctional Designs "Holiday Tree - RFL Edition" (other versions in their store)
Lights: What Next "Amalfi String Lights"

Another quick post and off I run! Along with my squee-worthy 8f8 Hat and Mittens I am wearing a Sweater and Jacket set by Liv-Glam that is available at the FineSmith Murder Mystery Hunt, which runs through December 8. Each participant in the Hunt provides one 'gift' for L$10 and eliminates a murder suspect. All in good fun!

Christmas Expo

I'm excited to tell you that this year's Expo is everything I wanted from a Christmas Expo! Four Beautiful sims of holiday goodness, tons of decorations, and nice presents for you to give to your family and friends. Every store will have a special vendor item whose proceeds go to the Relay for Life raising funds for cancer research. Last night I went over for the blogger preview and got all excited. This week I will be showing a variety of what's-on-the-Menu, I hope you'll join me there. If you would like to follow the event coverage, they have a Flickr group here.

Christmas Three

Oh let's start with a Tree! This one is Roawenwood's Winter Memories Tree, it's a charity benefit item. There are so many lovely trees to choose from in the shops, but on December 5th when it opens, there will also be a spot dedicated to the charity trees. I have to tell you I bought more than one :D

Christmas Expo Two

Oh hey, meet my buddy Elvis! Yes you can sit on him if you'd like. Unlike the other Elvis, he doesn't rock. :P  ... I guess he's not in the mood. But he's so festive with the wreath of flashing lights and that cute bow on his little bum. If you like him, stop by at the Kaerri shopfront.

Christmas Expo One

And another benefit item from Marmelade. These cute sets also include a second wall art, and a candy dish with a holiday cracker. They come in three different themes. This one is called "Rustic". There is also a set in traditional Christmas colors, and another in a blue and white winter theme. One caveat, the chair and ottoman are not resizable and they were too small for my avatar, so please sit on the chairs in the store to make sure they work for you. I love the snowflake lamp!
