The Cottage

The Cottage 1

Welcome to my last pre-christmas post of the year. Tomorrow I will drive to my parents place for the holidays and the internet connection there is way too crappy to make good blogshots. But I still have to catch up on many things like new releases and Advent Calendars and so I picked for this blogpost some of the cutest finds in the grid right now.
The Cottage is an Advent Calendar Gift from 22769 ~ casual couture and it is their gift for December, 23rd. The guys from 22769 have been so kind to give it to me beforehand and anyways – I guess it is time also to say thank you to Manu and Paco that they allow me to clutter their sim with my primmy fotosets. The blizzard topiaries left and right from the stairs come from the Advent Calendar from [CIRCA] and both trees also hold cute poses. Both trees also have these cute giant snowwhite christmas balls and are a wonderful addition to every winterish sim.

List of stuff:
Trees: CIRCA – Blizzard Topiaries (Advent Calendar Item)
House: 22769 ~ casual couture – Advent House (Advent Calendar Item 23rd Dec.)
Lights: L&K Prefabs – Einter Greenhouse Lights (15% discount til Sunday here)

I really must say I love the “Bertram Desk and Chair” from estatica a lot. It is just that classy piece of furniture to brighten up your virtual home. The “Captains Letter” with nib comes with the desk but also can become purchased seperate. The flowers on my desk are from LISP and so is the room divider that seperates the adorable bath from BoatHouse.

We will see each other again “inbetween years” when I come back with hopefully even more stuff to show you. Til then: take care <3

Horny

Horny 1

Not what you expected when you read the titel of this post, right? Anyways – just a quick one before I run to the uni again. The new Mens Dept. will open on the 4th and it is my pleasure to give you a preview of some of the items you can get there: like this turtleneck from [Sheep Door]. It will be available in three different colors and also in three different kind of striped patterns and I really like how the turtleneck goes over your chin and mouth. The eyes are mesh eyes from .ID. who have a series of Ice Eyes as offer in the Mens Dept. Shown here are the green ones. The eyes have a really lovely subtile texturing and I will be stuck with them for some time I guess.

And for the horns: the X-mas Aries Horns are the gift from the 22769 ~ casual couture Advent Calendar for December, 3rd. That means TODAY and today only. You can turn each candle on and off and it is just a funny and lovely accessory for everyone who loves kind of quirky stuff. So better hurry up to get this fantastic gift.

Advent Calendars

Advent Calendars 1

Happy weekend and happy December also. The craziest season within secondlife is starting now – and many shops have Advent Calendars for you to give you some fabulous gifts. Of course I can not keep track on all of those – but I will show you some that I really like. Since it is getting colder outside SL merchants provide you with great hats and caps. And the “Team Naughty” Knitcap is just the first Advent Calendar gift to showcase. Like every year 22769 ~ casual couture have put up a huge christmas tree in their store with a lot of giftboxes around it. Each giftbox holds a number – and today, December 1st, you receive the “Team Naughty” and the “Team Nice” Knithat. But you only can get it today and also just once – so better be careful when you tap the box with the “1″.

The jumper is the huntgift from [ iren ] for the “With Love <3″ Hunt. There is a female gift also. The jumper is mesh in male standard sizing and comes with two different alpha layers. I love how the jumper has folds and wrinkles and I especially like the color.

Advent Calendars 2

Right after my last decoration post “Cozy” I received a few IM’s from friends about where to find cute winterish cottages and houses. And now the good news: todays Winter Cabin is indeed the gift for December 1st at BoatHouse. The Advent Calendar is group only – and there is a 250 L$ fee to join the group. But first of all it is extremely hard to find such a nice and wonderful made house for that price and second this is the FIRST gift of 23 more to come. And while you are at BoatHouse there is a Cookie Jar Sale going on where you can find several items for just 70 L$. The items are all trans – so you can even gift them so someone.

The sofa I am sitting on is the gift from Cheeky Pea for the “With Love <3″ Hunt. It has neat single and couple animations and also fits perfectly in the winterish season. And also the kitchen table with chairs (above right) is a gift from the same hunt. It comes from floorplan. While we are talking about hunts (and there are also a lot of them running right now) – the frames on the shelf (above left) are from the “Home For Christmas Hunt” and are from SFW. You can put your own pictures in it. And also the cute christmas tree wall decor is a gift from the Home For Christmas Hunt – and it is from BoatHouse. And the coffee table in front of the couch is the gift from PRIME for the hunt. It comes with a few more things also that are not shown here.

Back to the “With Love <3″ Hunt. These Lamps in my window come from [Apple Fall] – and they are copy. Like everything from Apple Fall they are wonderful made.

If you do not want to make hunts then gatcha is maybe your thing: The Arcade Gatcha Festival started with the second round and Trompe Loeil offer the “12 Days Of Christmas” Advent Calendar. It is the shelf above the Cheeky Pea Couch (below left). You get this calendar for free at the Arcade Gatcha Festival – and you can play for the keys (25 L$ each). Each key openes a door and is giving you a gift from the calendar. It is just such a cute idea. Trompe Loeil are also at FAIR where you can find the “Curio Table” next to the sofa. And to make 3 full – Trompe is of course also at the December Round of FaMESHed and offer this cute Cabinet Bed. You can change textures and also close and open the side window shutters.
