Loving Fall!!

Even though I know winter is coming, Autumn is such a burst of joy before the snow and ice set in. The crunching sound of the leaves, the wonderful colors that flood the trees and the ground and all the "warm" things we do.

My RL birthday is in July so this summer I had asked for a firepit to be built in my back yard because I just KNEW I would use it in the fall. Guess what?! I few times now and I even learned that I cannot handle sm'oreos lol they are wayyy too sweet.

Speaking of fall, Dreamland Designs have some amazing items for the fall season:

You will see both the Autumn Table Set and the Tree with falling acorns and leaves. Yes! Acorns and leaves really fall! In my photos you will see that the Autumn Table Set has several options to choose from.

The Tree has a lot of options for sitting as well, and in addition tot he acorns and leaves falling, it has piles of leaves and the baskets that come with it. Be sure you get yours soon from Dreamland Designs and enjoy a little taste of Autumn in your backyard :)

I have added nothing to this so that you can see what is included.

No, that's not a sex swing......

Did that get your attention? (lol) Well, I have had several questions regarding one item in this blog post so I thought why not make my reply the title.

When I first saw all the items for bloggers that are available at the Home & Garden Expo, I was totally overwhelmed thinking to myself, "How am I going to blog on all these magnificent pieces?" I mean come on 96 designers on 9 sims, all focused on homes and home decor!! That's is a LOT to take in. However, as I unpacked and arranged and saw the pieces, I became more relaxed and actually inspired!

This is just one post so far, so stay tuned for more....and I had over 10 photos for this blog post but decided to only put 6 here. The rest of the photos are posted on my FLICKR so  that this post isn't overwhelmed.

The first set of photos that I took are from the outside of the home focusing on the outdoor items that you can find at the Expo. I was also playing around with windlight settings and for this set I used the Jax Muted Sunset and the Jax Pretty Sunset.

In the above photos you can find:

The Dreamers Home -- Thaino Designs

All of the items are highly detailed and best of all LOW PRIM! I love it when items are well made, quality textures and then are low prim, it's just the icing on the cake! Now let's move inside this wonderful home...

See the swing above is just a normal one person swing, not a sex swing lol. The items above are soooo awesome, high quality textures, low prim mesh, I just can't say enough.

Home Sweet Home

Waves, hi!!! Yes, it is true! I have a 2nd blog page now and this one will be strictly for home decor/interior design. My thinking is that when I blog fashion, people who want to see my home decor posts don't want to have to scroll through the fashion posts. So, viola', a new page was born! lol

I took these photos a couple of weeks back when I remodeled my living room. My tastes in furniture are so eclectic and simple, and pretty much UNCLUTTERED. Wish my RL home was like that lol.

When I first began decorating this room the theme that I wanted to do was more Americana and the chests from 11th Hour (under the TV) were the items that gave me inspiration. While I was trying to pull the room together since my furniture wasn't in the same theme, I decided to create a rug and some pictures with the Americana/folk lore feel. The Scrabble board on the floor served 2 purposes 1) it makes it look lived in and homier and 2) I LOVE Scrabble lol. The Cheeky Pea sofa, chairs and coffee table are all accented with pieces from Bazar, Kaerri, Alouette and {What Next}.

My favorite thing to do in this living room is to just relax with my special person in my life, watch some movies on the VEA 3 TV, or just cuddle and talk. Be sure to spread the word about my new blog page as well as visit these shops and support merchants!!


Couch: Cheeky Pea- :CP: Bailey Sofa  (comes in adult or standard)
Table Lamp, Book Clutter, Vases and Newspaper Stand: ~BAZAR~ Arizona Living room
Wall Quilt: Kaerri - Brentwood Living Room Wall Quilt
Chairs: Cheeky Pea - :CP: Bailey Chair Silver & Bailey Chair Leaf
Coffee Table: Cheeky Pea - :CP: Bailey Set (used table only)
