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.

Springtime for Stewart

This is for Stewart, who makes no effort to hide his disdain for winter. The days of spring are upon us, at least in SL, my friend.

Again rejoicing Nature sees
Her robe assume its vernal hues,
Her leafy locks wave in the breeze
All freshly steep’d in morning dews.

-Composed in Spring, Robert Burns

The rest of the poem is not so full of joy, expressing as it does the loss of a beloved but uncaring young lady. However, we certainly feel his awareness that the rest of the world is coming to life, even though he does not feel a part of it. You can read the entire poem here.

    Such beautiful springtime pics Eliza… you caught the happy feeling in your garden photos so well… makes me want to sit in the meadow a while

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!
