Autumn Home

I’ve been having a wonderful time landscaping and decking out a friend’s sim for the autumn season. While there is more variety than ever for high-quality autumn landscaping items, I would love to see even more of this type of thing in SL. Maple trees would be especially appreciated! Goodness knows if I had an inkling of creative talent it would be all about the plants! Cory Edo’s Rustic Cabin brings in some wonderful colors to complement the landscape.

I used about a million different trees and plants so I am not listing specifics here. However, if you have a question about where I got a particular item, please feel free to IM me in world or email me at elizaquixote@gmail.com. I’d be happy to give you the details.

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

And I don’t mean Christmas. Autumn is my undisputed favorite season, coming as it does after my least favorite season, summer. The color in autumn is simply unbeatable by any other season, and the temperatures are stable without being overly hot or cold. It also usually coincides with the beginning of the school year, which makes me think of setting goals and making new beginnings.

I am so thrilled with the botanical autumn offerings this year. Some of my favorites include Lucian’s Designs, Fiddler’s Green and TeddyJr, along with the prolific and always talented Alex Bader. I am also enjoying the lovely mesh designs from We’re Closed.

I only wish for endless perfect days like this one!

Curio Thistle’s mesh horses are so gorgeous and I feel like they are very underused by me. Dragonfyre Designs uses these horses for saddled riding poses and they were perfect for our ride today.

Heading Home

I have been thinking over my life recently and have come to the conclusion that I have a pretty great one. Most of this revolves around my husband. My very favorite thing in life is going home to him at the end of each day, and knowing that once I get there everything will be good and right. Oh, we have stresses and tough times and disappointments just like everyone does, and I don’t think there is any life that doesn’t have some of that . And we both have our individual interests, pursuits and struggles. But even with all of that, I know he’s going to be there when I get home. My dog knows this too, and her conniption fit of ecstasy when I say “Let’s go home and see Papi!” makes it pretty clear she’s smitten, as well.

Falling

Soon autumn will be in full swing, and thus begins my favorite time of the year. Collabor88 started today and this month’s theme sweeps us gently into fall. Harry Hyx’s fuzzy angora sweater takes the chill off those recent cool evenings and Maxi Gossamer’s Fall Leaf jewelry gives us a preview of the piles of leaves that will soon be covering the ground. Also at Collabor88 is the lovely Leila skin from Belleza.
