Autumn and especially winter are the best seasons for decoration within secondlife. Creators release one adorable item after another and makes even me wanting to own a sim. On the other hand I guess I would constantly decorate and alter it and would have no time anymore for blogging… Anyways – here we go: a new hunt is coming to the grid, organised by CHIC. And that alone should set you in instant exitement because you know what you can expect from a CHIC event. Top stores, wonderful gifts and a way brilliant organised hunt. This one is called “With Love <3” and the gifts are wonderful. It is a great pleasure for me to show you some of the male gifts and also some decoration and furniture pieces you can get in this hunt.
The jumper, scarf and mittens is the gift from [ SAKIDE ] and I really love the casual and realistic look of the items. This indeed is something you could find in my RL wardrobe also. The jumper and the mittens are rigged (and can be worn seperate also) and the scarf contains a resizer. Definitely a keeper. The painter pants are from [Sheep Door] and the boots are from Adjunkt. Please note that the With Love ❤ Hunt is a 10 L$ Hunt – but the items are definitely worth it.
I already gave you some decoration ideas for your parcel/sim in my post “Cozy” and I promised there that I will give you a better look on the fabulous new mesh winter trees from Garden Of Dreams. Well here they are. Indeed all plants are from GOD which I love to use since they are copy and you can fill your sim easy with a very attractive winter look. The “Chill Grove Tree” Set from GOD contains 3 different types of trees that come in three sizes, but also in two different appearances: there is one version with branches and a “dead” version without branches at all. So that is a hell of a set! Like said the trees are mesh – and therefor the landimpact is a thing you have to deal with. One tree has a landimpact of 18 but on the other hand the trees rez much faster then the usual sculpted ones. And in my opinion they also look much better. So with trees I recommend to mix sculpted trees with mesh trees as accent.
These adorable benches in my little park come from estatica – a shop I got to know via the Silverlining Hunt. The Musgrove Benches come in a rounded version (around the tree) and in a straight version. And also – of course – in a fatpack with both. Each bench holds 47 animation/animated poses for male and female avatars and for couples. This is the perfect item to decorate your sim or home because not only that the benches are extremely well done – they are also copy and each bench has just 1 LI! And even if I used it on my winter set – they look also good in all kind of seasons sims.
The cute lanterns are from Trompe Loeil. They are available in 2 available color/material options. And each package contains a version with the Handle up or down. Also the lanterns have 1 LI and they are also copy – so this is also the perfect decoration item for your virtual home. The light is owner driven only and the texturing – like with all Trompe Loeil produkts – is absolutely flawless.
