It’s A Marshmallow World in the Winter


The darling Miss Isabelli Anatine kindly lent her sim to me today so that I could take a snowy photograph of a few great new items that can be found at TLC this round.  Her sim Demented Love is a winter paradise currently, filled with frosty wonders that will delight you!

I am loving all the winter home and garden items that are quickly making their way around the grid. What Next has created a fantastically detailed winter picnic set that is perfect for any snowy scene.  I love the thermoses and mugs for hot cocoa!

One of my favorite items released at TLC this month is the lighted trees from Pixel Mode.  I am really excited to use these around The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse when I finally get around to changing the seasons! They are so sparkly and beautiful!

Yay for snow…and sparkles…and hot cocoa!

That Kitchen Held Treasured Memories


We are hitting that time of year when the temps start to drop, the snow begins to fall, and all I want to do is spend time in the kitchen baking warm, ooey & gooey treats! It also really motivates me to set up cozy little scenes to show you all.

I have simply fallen in love with the Lavender Brown House that Scarlet Creative released for Collabor88 this month. It’s spacious, rustic, and rich with beautiful textures and warmth. It’s the perfect hideaway for the chilly winter nights.  What’s also perfect is the Antique Kitchen that Trompe Loeil created for FaMESHed. It goes wonderfully with the Scarlet Creative House, and comes with a wide array of pieces including a sink, stove, pot rack, island, hutch, tables and chairs, and so much more.

So bundle up and grab all your baking gear because we’ve finally hit the perfect time of year for it!

Let Me Get Back to Writing My Feelings Down


Life has just been so busy lately. Blogging happens when and only when I am able to. I’m appreciative of those of you who stick with me, and keep checking back. That means a lot to me. I had fun putting a little home and garden scene together for you. A few of these items are at the current round of FaMESHed for the month of November.  Can you believe it’s already November? Crazy!

I’ll Curl Up Under the Glow and Read from Pages I’ve Never Known


I am completely and utterly obsessed with the newest release from Trompe Loeil. This rustic skybox is not only cozy, but also spacious. How Cory Edo managed to accomplish combining cozy and spacious, i’m uncertain, but she did a flawless job. I make mention of the skybox as a whole because you can only see a very small glimpse of it here in my post. Flip through her flickr for some detailed shots of this great new home.

Two other things I’m obsessing over since my return are the picket fence bed from Cheeky Pea, and the heritage arm chair from DIGS. Both I wish I had real life versions of, so I could curl up with some good literature and a cup of coffee and start or end my day right.

This post is filled with all sorts of other little items that I just fell in love with. Home and garden posts are quickly becoming some of my favorite posts to create. I love envisioning these cozy spaces, and wish so badly to have them in real life form!
