Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge¬†tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). ūüėõ

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and¬†SLink¬†Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar¬†(not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! ūüôā

T – 2 Days

Hey FabFree! As you can see my puppy made it home safe and sound after his¬†walkabout to Serena’s and then his untimely abduction by Carson.¬† He’s exhausted poor thing, not even enough energy to play with his favourite ball, but I made him pose for the photo so you could see he was returned safely!¬† I’m sure once he wakes up, he’ll be ready for another adventure.¬† Who knows where he will wind up this afternoon!

Running Out of Advent Time!

There is only¬†a couple more days to take advantage of all of the free gifts in the Kittycats Advent Calendar and if you haven’t been by, you can head down there and pick up all of the previous days.¬† This calendar is filled with sometimes multiple gifts each day by different designers across the grid.¬† Now…¬† I can’t remember which day I got this awesome gift by Rebel Hope, but I wanted to share the news with you so you know it’s in there … somewhere!¬† This gift by Rebel Hope includes the dress and boots shown as well as a headband and a hat¬†(not shown).

Dress & Boot Sizes:

  • XXS – L mesh w/ alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus

It’s the Truth, I tell you!

My hairstyle today is courtesy of Truth who put their Irena and Irenka hairstyles under the holiday Pompom hats and sent them out to the inworld Truth group.  This is similar to the previous hair gift that Sheidey has been showing off in her posts [HERE], and [HERE], but with a holiday pom pom hat ;).  A full selection of colour huds for hair and texture change for the hat is included.

Also in Truth¬† group notices right now, you’ll find the Bangs Collection which is a great way to add a little versatility to any of your Truth hair!¬† I am wearing the Swept Right Narrow bangs with my Irenka hair today and it really changed up the look.¬† There are several different types of bangs (or fringe as some of you around the world call it) and as like the PomPom Hat gift, there is a full selection of colour huds!¬† I can’t wait to try it with the other kajillion Truth hairstyles I have been collecting.¬† It will be like new hair all over again!¬† There is a fee of 350L to join currently, but it’s worth it!

Winter Decor

Now this bench with my little squirrel friend is another one of the Le Poppycock Animal Friends¬† poses from the gacha offering at The Liason Collaborative (50L per play), but also…¬†sitting beside the bench you’ll see a very nice winter¬†d√©cor piece¬†by Dixie Dandelion called Pilling Lantern & Gulls¬†w/ Shell¬†that I picked up for 10L at The Wash Cart Sale.¬† This item is transferrable so that you can even gift it to a friend if you like!

Fun Flurries

Snapshot_001
Hello Fabulouses!!¬† I gotta say…¬†Snow sledding was a lot less painful when I was 8!¬†¬†It is my personal¬†recommendation that if you are over 30, you do not try this (I swear I felt every bump on the way down)…¬†but if you are brave, this fun Sled Riding pose is a 1L dollarbie in the .::NaniKa::. marketplace store.¬† Next time, I’m bringing a pillow!

Make sure you are doing your daily visits to the free¬†KittycatS Advent Calendar too!¬† There are a ton of great designers participating, like Somnia who has gifted¬†the Flurry Sweater you see me wearing.¬† The Flurry Special includes a texture change hud too, so it’s a¬†whole handful¬†of sweaters in one!¬† I forget which day it was in… but you can go back and grab previous days, so just open them all :).¬† You’ll be glad you did.
