.. 2013 Christmas Expo Finds ..

Blog 120613 Xmas Expo 2

So much to find at the 2013 Christmas Expo, and I wanted to share a few things.  This year’s expo brings many creators together.  You can find furniture, clothing, poses, home decor.  Items for the holidays, for gifts, and for year round fun.  And while shopping, be sure to stop in to see the other activities in the Victorian Village.  There’s the tree lot where you can pick up a special Christmas tree and the skating area where you can strap on your skates for a spin across the ice. There are raffles and a silent auction too.  Often you will find DJs spinning some tunes, or maybe even a live singer while you are there.  And definitely do not forget to look for Saint Nicholas so that you can perch upon his lap for an awesome photo-op.  Be sure to whisper your Christmas wishes into his ear… you just never know what might show up on Christmas day!

The 2013 Christmas Expo benefits Relay For Life of Second Life with proceeds from the RFL vendors, auction boards, raffles and kiosks all being donated to the campaign for the American Cancer Society.

Behind me, a caravan weighed down

With bad dreams and ghosts of apologies

There’s no room, no room inside

For a hitcher with a suitcase of pride

A New Home

So I have been setting up a new house for the last few weeks.  I removed the house that I shared, and am making this little house more about me.  I’ve made some other changes around the sim as well, but not too much other than the house.

I have always loved Lindini2 Lane’s homes (L2 Studio) and for now, I have selected the West Lake house.  I did some modifications to make the upstairs a little bigger and to add a roof top deck as well.  With the way this house sits up on one of the bluffs overlooking the lake, I wanted some outdoor space with a view.  I shopped high and low for the items that I have placed in the house, with some items straight from the inventory and some bought new… I have made the house my home and decided I’d dust off my blog and share pics!

I have selected items from so many creators to add to my home.  It has been fun finding new fun things while out and about as well as getting ideas from various places.  Most of my furniture and decor items come from the following shops: LISP, LAQ Decor, Urbanized, Apple Fall, Scarlet Apple, Art Dummy, Chronokit, ILO, NULL, What Next, Cheeky Pea, Dutchie, Tatty Soup, Picnic, Floor Plan, Tranquility Way Station, Insight Designs, Post, Ikebana, One Grid, iTuTu, Frog’s Pond, MMG, JubJub, Naked Mesh.  You will see these items placed around my home and if you want to know where anything specific is from, please ask.

I am sure that I will continue changing the rooms as I find fun new stuff and especially as mesh items catch my eye.  If you’d like to stop in for a cup of tea, a cupcake and a closer look, just find me in world and pop on over ❤

Be happy, enjoy the creations in SL and support the creators… and decorate!
