Bringing home the tree

It's tradition... drive out to that little tree lot near the skating pond, cut the freshest tree possible, decorate it and bring it home. The only problem was, this was my first time doing it without Dad's pickup truck. Everything was going well till I put it in my car. Now there's no room for me! How am I supposed to get this thing home?

At least I'm warm and comfy in my outfit from DE. Boutique.  My sensible boots are from Lindy. This look, including the hair from Tameless, is @ Designer Showcase till December 31.

Winter Dreams

Wandering through a beautiful castle, dressing in an embroidered gown... sounds like a faerie tale, doesn't it? But you can own these items and much more thanks to the creators @ Winter's Hollow and Designer Showcase.

The Rivendale Castle is EXCLUSIVE @ Winter's Hollow till December 28. It is rezzed at the event so that you can wander around inside and see how well it has been constructed and picture yourself living there. (BTW, the walls are pure white; the windlight I was using for my pictures makes them appear lilac and blue in the pictures.)

The embroidered gown and gloves from Ghee is just one of 6 colors available. 
This is another of Ghee's wonderfully realistic textured items. The heavy gold embroidery is amazingly well done.

My eye makeup from Dulce Secrets and tattoo from Avada are also featured now @ Designer Showcase.

Sugar Plum Faeries Wear Boots

Every winter we gasp in amazement as the dancers in the Nutcracker Suite ignore the laws of gravity and physics to bring us the story of toys coming to life on Christmas night. For many of us, it just isn't the holidays till we've seen the ballet.

We all know that it takes years of grueling  practice to make those movements seem so effortless. At the end of the day, the ballerina ... or Sugar Plum faerie... heads home on the subway wearing something warm and comfortable.

I combined elements from two of my sponsoring events for this blog...
The EXCLUSIVE Sugarplum Dress from Oubliette is currently available @ Winter's Hollow. Available in 6 colors and a fatpack, there are coordinated ballet shoes available as well [not shown here]. The tee I'm wearing under the track suit is the Oubliette hunt gift. [See my Dark Blog for more information about the Winter's Hollow Hunt]

The Jayda track suit from Ana Markova and Marta Boots from Lindy can be found @ Designer Showcase. The track suit is available in 6 colors sold separately. To tell you the truth, this faerie is more likely to be wearing a track suit than a lacey dress!

Ticket to Bedford Falls

No matter how far we wander in this big ol' world,  part of us longs to go home again. Of course, home is never exactly as we remember it, but we still long to be there. If we're very fortunate, not only will home still be there, but Dad will be waiting to give us a ride from the station.

My travel outfit is Wonderful Life from I.M. Collection, available @ Designer Showcase. 
Coat/top, Skirt and a necklace (not shown - Mom always said not to wear jewelry when travling) included for each color; coordinated boots available separately. The Yasmina hair is from Tameless, available in 3 color huds (naturals shown), also @ Designer Showcase.
