Waiting

Dear Mother Nature,

I live in New England. This brings certain expectations that there will be seasons. Those seasonal expectations do NOT include 80-plus degree weather in September. If our winter is the same as last year I am sure I will be bemoaning that when the time comes as well, but for now, Mother Nature, please bring on the autumn that I moved to New England for.

Sincerely yours,

Sweaty Eliza

I have been meaning to get to this sweet pose by Luna Jubilee since it was released at the Men’s Dept. this month…but it wasn’t until Winter Thorn’s lovely Lisbeth Garden Blanket set was released at Collabor88 that I had the perfect setting for it. Thanks to Stewart for helping me with the pose today.

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.

A Winter Home

A friend recently asked me to landscape his sim for winter. I’m afraid I went a bit crazy, but it has been so much fun to do. One of my favorite things was this little area where I set up one of my houses.

I know, those windows are totally inappropriate for wintertime, and a house really does need a door, especially in winter. I claim SL immunity to those things however, because I have always loved Cross Jupiter’s beautiful little cottage.

Until next time!
