Anyone else ready for spring?¬† I know I am. Where I live the weather can not seem to make up its mind. I wish it would either snow and be cold, or warm up so I can be outside. HAHA. I know wishful thinking of course. ūüėČ The beauty of SL is that we can bring the spring to us whenever we please. So, that’s exactly what I did. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Keep Smiling Y’all.

Spring Affair

I still find it very odd to do a picture in which I don’t feature myself in some way, decor blogging is so very different than fashion blogging and I am still learning. Collabor88 opened today and with it came some amazing items that just screamed spring at me, there is still snow on the ground here and I wish it was spring. My picture today reflects my insane need for spring and warmer weather that is still months off for my part of the world.

Writing the blog for decor is easier than for fashion but setting the shot is far more difficult in my opinion, of course, I have been a fashion blogger for the better part of the three years that I have been blogging. Scarlet Creative and Half Deer both have new releases at this round of Collabor88. This lovely, one room home is only 62LI. It is modifiable and copiable and just truly a lovely build. Grab it right now for an astonishingly low price of just 188L during Collabor88.

The lovely roses lining the different part of this house are from Half Deer, they are available in 6 colors with 13 shapes total in each pack, you can also grab the fatpack and get all the colors.

Home Sweet Home

So I did it again, I created photos for two separate¬†blogs back to back without writing the blogs. This is a bad practice for me because I end up screwing something up when I do the spam for the blog. I am going to do really well today though because one is a landscape blog and the other is a fashion/decor blog. Enough small talk, let’s get on to the main event.

Llorisen is at FaMESHed again this month and you can grab this lovely farmhouse. You get three different houses in the pack, a standard, lower LI, and a snow covered. Unfortunately, I could not fit the entire build into one picture, it is larger than shown here but this is a pretty good representation. You can see a demo of the house at FaMESHed, and it is just beautifully done.

I chose to decorate the exterior with some older items I have, seems I have a lot of winter decor and even though winter is NOT my favorite season in RL it is ok in SL, at least I don’t feel the cold that it represents like I do in RL. I’m just going to write a list of the adorable items I’ve included because to be perfectly honest I have blogged most of them in the past.

Trying to break into decor blogging is not easy, most decor creators want to see a good amount of decor only blogs to give you a chance to officially blog for them and that is fine, I can completely understand. I have been a fashion blogger for so long it is odd for me to not include myself in a picture, but I did it and today’s blog is solely focused on decor. Just like a real home, I pulled some pieces from different designers across the grid to create what I hope is an inviting home. I’ll let you be the judge of whether I accomplished my goal or not.

I went to Scarlet Creative and being on a limited budget decided to check out her outlet area. I was pleasantly surprised at the lovely builds available at the outlet and the astonishing price. I picked up this lovely home for only 188L. It is unfurnished and comes with a rez box ready to build. The most fabulous thing about this stunning build is that it is only 57 LI and I’m going to take you on a little tour.

This is a skybox build so technically there is not an entryway, however, I think of it as one. I created a cozy little nook to have coffee or read a book and I had some help from two amazing designers that I officially blog for. The gorgeous mirror and wall art comes with color change HUDs. The mirrors are available in 5 individual packs or a fatpack. There is also a special Yule version for Christmas. The gorgeous leaf wall art comes in two packs or a fatpack.

I complete the entrance with these funky chairs from KraftWork, the included texture change offers you 9 color options.

Step around the corner and you’ll find a neat little nook kitchen, this is perfect for your bachelor pad, to have a friend over or simply enjoy the view out the window. I included a few things from KraftWork to complete my kitchen set. This fridge was created as a group gift for the month of September and is still available to group members. Join the group for 25L and pick up this and so many other gifts available in the store. The nook contains poses and the awesome toaster radio is part of a gacha set.

When you enter the living room, the funky mismatched furniture and decor will catch your eye. I love colonial furniture because you can match it with anything. I chose a funky tapestry and woven throw rug to complete my look.

Other Decor: Tarte РLighted Tapestry Earth

Head on upstairs with me to the area I lovingly call my “wreck room”. Honestly, this area is just a fun area to sit and reflect, read, write, whatever it is that completes you. I chose this gorgeous decor set from Goose for this blog, I have used them before and I had to go in an update my pictures but that is the beauty of this set, you can change the pictures to your heart’s content.

 Last but most certainly not least is the bedroom area, step across from the wreck room into this open floor plan bedroom. I found this fabulous bed from KraftWork and built around it with some awesome decor from Apple Fall. The bed comes with built-in poses and is available in an adult or PG version. It comes with a texture change option to change the picture on the back headboard and the coolest part is it folds up into itself to create what looks like a row of lockers. The other decor is from an older Apple Fall gacha but it completes the set so well.

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone, break down the walls that are holding you back, and try something you never have before to grow. This is one of those times. When I heard that Scarlet Creative was looking for a few bloggers to complete the 2018 team my first thought was “I’ve never blogged Scarlet Creative before”. I decided to open up the application and check out the rules and although¬†I don’t feel that I am quite there yet, you never gain anything by not trying. I jokingly call this post my “audition” piece. I hope you enjoy.

When I decided to attempt a full decor blog I decided to choose this gorgeous build available at Collabor88. This 3 level house with a room on each level and is only 177 LI fully rezzed. You may purchase an optional snow roof at the main store location and the total cost of this gorgeous setting? 238L total, but remember the special pricing of the house is while purchased at Collabor88.

While I was looking at the house at Collabor88 I also saw this lovely conservatory and thought it would be perfect to complete my scene, it was only 88L a total steal in my opinion. Only 84LI this conservatory comes with an optional snow roof as well, plus some of the other snow pilings you see around the decor including the snow on the railing of the Scarlet Creative build. I added some lovely trees from The Little Branch including the Giant Cedar that is part of the Hello Tuesday today only at Cosmopolitan and a very miniature version of the Winter Brise tree available at FaMESHed, I thought it made a lovely shrub in front of my window.

I felt like something was missing and got to looking, that’s when I realized I had no lamps or lights of any kind. I hit the marketplace and found this super cute, Victorian lamp post. It is only 7LI and also comes with single and couple’s poses built right in.

This was fun and although a little weird not to include myself in a picture it was kind of nice not to have to stress over how I looked. I hope you all enjoyed my review of these fabulous decor pieces. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannakah, Merry Kwanzaa, or whatever it is you celebrate this time of year.
