Retreat

Retreat 1 Happy Sunday everyone. Todays blogpost is dedicated to some finds at the Mens Dept., some hunt gifts and most of all again decoration for you winter homes. But lets start with my todays outfit and look: The shirt and the pants I am wearing are from the Mens Dept. and they are the items from etam. Nice rigged mesh items and I like the pants because they are just that kind of homewear I love to put on on a lazy sunday. The boots are from BSD Designs and are also rigged mesh. The Equestrian Boots are unisex and are just the right kind of footwear for a nice winter walk.
Hanaya have released a lot of wonderful items for the Relay for Life Christmas Expo. The adorable Wintery Driftwood Birdbath is one of them and the Frozen Pond Bench in my back is another one. They are just lovely pieces of decoration to give your home that special winter feeling. The house I am standing in front of is the new release from Trompe Loeil for Collabor 88. The Frostbite Cottage comes in 4 different colors. I chose the white one and you can see a full shot of the house on the bottom of this post.

Retreat 2I decided to decorate the Frostbite Cottage in a more man-ly way this time. And again there are some fantastic furniture finds with men in mind at the Mens Dept. Like the ensemble from {af} called “Ralph’s Entryway” containing the drawers, the model sailboat, the brass lantern and the rope suspended gallery. I combined it with the new released Lounge Chair in corduroy from Trompe Loeil (tan), the Loveseat Corduroy (tan) also from Trompe Loeil (both for Collabor 88 also), the hunters living room table from World of Wood and the Winter Day Bed from WetCat.
The Winter Day Bed is the huntgift for the current running “Home for Christmas Hunt”. And while we are talking about hunts: the chalkboard in the back of the Winter Day Bed is also a huntgift. This time it is from evolve and it is their share for the “With Love Hunt”. The “Grannys Type Case” above the Lounge chair is an Advent Calendar gift from 22769 for the 13th December – so mark that date in your calendar, because it is lovely. The Antler Chandelier comes from “The Loft” and the rug is a new release from {af}

Retreat 3In my “sleeping corner” I used another huntitems: the Stockholm Bed from Vespertine is – again – a wonderful gift from the “With Love Hunt” The bedside table is from the Mens Dept. and is the item from PILOT. The room divider comes from LISP who really have some neat christmas decoration items. In my reading corner I used the Eames Lounge Chair from 2Xtreme and the hunters bookshelf from World of Woods. And these cute window decorations are from [CIRCA]. The festive pinecones are the current groupgift at the store. Also from [CIRCA] is the “Boho Winter” Snowflake Tree – and it is a part of their Gift for the Peace On Earth Hunt. The Primitive Timber Bench is also a part of a huntgift – this time from POST and for the “With Love Hunt”

Retreat 4I found this lovely butterfly table at L&K Prefabs. Not only it is wonderful made – but as you can see in the picture you can unfold both wings of it individually by mouseclick. It is the perfect piece of decoration and even for secondlife extremely practical. The decoration set is also from L&K Prefabs and just matches the overall look of my little winter retreat place. The Christmas Tree comes from BoatHouse. The little tree also was one of the Advent Calendar Gifts from the store. The Christmas Punch Side Table comes from Pestique. It rezzes by mouseclick either the punch (like shown here) or wine. It is the huntgift from the store for the Home For Christmas Hunt. And the frames on the floor again come from {af}.

List of stuff:
Butterfly Table and Decoration: L&K Prefabs – Butterfly Table and Raw Tablewear
Christmas Tree: BoatHouse – Boathouse Advent Calendar Item
Sidetable: Pestique Furniture – Christmas Punch Side Table (for the Home for Christmas Hunt)
Frames: {af} – NY Print 1 and 2 (for the Mens Dept.)

Retreat 5And finally – like promised – the outside view of the lovely Frostbite Cottage from Trompe Loeil. I really must say that I love the size of this cottage – it is just not too big or too small – just the right size for bringing on some winterish feeling in your secondlife homes.

List of stuff:
Prefab: Trompe Loeil – Frostbite Cottage white (for Collabor 88)

If you are looking for cute winter and christmas things in secondlife obviously now is the right time. Creators have again outdone themselfes this year to bring some really fine products for your avatar and for your homes to the grid. And there are many places where you can get that certain x-mas-feeling – even for a bargain. So since the month is a few days old your first stop definitely should be the Mens Dept. I got myself – again – new eyes there. This time from Poetic Colors who also offer a selection of winter colored eyes. Today I am wearing the icicle ones. The nordic jumper I am wearing is from bleak – it is available in different styles and as you can see in the pictures it looks way real.

Another brilliant find in the December Mens Dept. is the rather taxidermic Antler Christmas Tree from Cheeky Pea. It definitely is outstanding and lovely made and way special. Also the carton box deer head over the chimney is from the Mens Dept. and comes from [HANDverk] (available in two different styles). I have to say that I cheated a bit by adding the festive bow from the “12 Days of Christmas” Calendar from Trompe Loeil underneath it. And to sum the Mens Dept. up: todays house is also from the Mens Dept. and comes from Deco. The Port Richmond Skyloft has an unbeatable quality and gives you enough room for decorating and furnishing. And the denims are the item from [AB]

If you are looking for christmas or winter stuff the “Relay For Life Christmas Expo” is definitely worth a visit. Not only the fairground is lovely build but you also can find some wonderful stuff there also. I got myself the “Festive Chandelier” from Hanaya which is way cute. You can change the color of the ornaments by mouseclick – also it has three different light functions. The silverish wreath is again a gift from the “12 Days of Christmas” Calendar and so is the Noel Blocks at the chimney. Nearly everything else I used comes from the adorable Christmas Calendar from BoatHouse and I really have to say that the Fireplace Tools are my favorite kind of decorative pieces because it is lovely made and just gives the certain extra to the sl homes with fireplace (and we all know – there are a lot of them).
