Waiting for Santa

Every wonder what Mrs. Santa does while Santa is out making his rounds? 
Contrary to popular belief, she doesn't stay at the workshop. It's much to noisy and bright. 
The gnomes (they aren't really elves, you know...) will be drinking all night to celebrate another successful year. They tend to sing off key and challenge each other to fart contests, so as soon as Santa's sleigh is out of sight, Mrs. S heads to the private cabin in the woods.
There she plays in the snow like she did as a girl and makes Santa's favorite gingerbread men while she waits for him to get home with the special gifts he has saved just for her. 
She always worries just a bit and pretends to be angry with him for being late, but after a millennium and a half of marriage, he knows she isn't really angry, just concerned.
Wearing the EXCLUSIVE Santa Baby outfit from DE.Boutique. You need a cute look for those Christmas parties and this one is very well done. It comes with boots and hat.
My skin is Nephlyn from 7 Deadly S{k}ins in my favorite shade, pineapple.
The EXCLUSIVE jewelry is from Moondance Boutique in 8 metals and 30 jewel colors. 
These items are all @ Designer Showcase till December 30.

My nails are Candy Cane from Mani Pedi available in 6 flavors.

First Krissmus

Remember that first Krissmus with your love? You had a tiny house and almost no money. 
The presents were all terribly romantic things like kitchen utensils and work boots, but it didn't matter. You thought the tree he built from the flats he saved from the trash at work was brilliant and he thought you were much prettier than any angel had a right to be.
The lights wouldn't stay in place on the tree, so he wrapped them around you instead and said you needed a star on your head. Then you kissed and it didn't matter that the house was too small or that you missed your mother. There will be many Krissmuses to follow, with bigger houses and fancier decorations, but you will never forget this one.

Winter Faun

I always appreciate it when clothing can be used for fantasy as well as "real second life". 
I came into SL as an Elf (LotR, not Santa's workshop) and I still make my home in the fantasy lands and spend a lot of my time hanging out with fauns, fae and pixies. The ears aren't an affectation for me, I've had pointy ears all my second life. They're the only thing about my look that hasn't changed over the years.
This EXCLUSIVE dress from Wild fills the bill nicely for either fantasy use or to go clubbing. 
The dress can be worn with or without the sleeves and comes with a 20 texture hud. 
It includes matching thigh boots for those of you who don't have hooves.
My jewelry is an EXCLUSIVE from Moondance Boutique the hud lets you choose from 8 metals and 22 stone colors. 
My skin is the palest shade of the Nephlyn skins from 7 Deadly S{k}ins.
Beauty Mode Nails from Cazimi are available in 3 colors and 5 designs sold separately or in a fatpack.

[QE] @ Snowbound Hunt

Snowbound is one of the easiest hunts you'll ever do.  
There are hunt keys for most of the 70  participating stores in the posters around the landing area, and hundreds of goodie-stuffed ornaments scattered all over the sim. They're lying on the ground, in the trees and inside the buildings. Items are priced L$0 - $25 / ornament. 
The Snowbound Hunt ends December 12, so don't delay! 

I'm showing just a few of the [QE] Designs Snowbound hunt items. There are also snowflake rugs, PJs for both male and female and a man's kilt and hoody. As always with [QE], texture change huds add variety to each item.
