Creating Winterland

A blog in pictures, because my fingers hurt tonight so I don't feel like typing much. :)

Earlier today I was on my bunny and wondering what I should do.
What should we do today, Bunny?

Then I decided, hey! It's time to make my little winter land up in our sky world! I didn't take a picture of it, but I started just putting down some snowy prims. I was almost 100% positive I wanted the winter cabin from Mudshake, and since there's one other person who will be enjoying this with me and he was online, I made him come out there with me to stare at the house.

He had to leave pretty quickly after we'd gotten there and didn't have time to give me an opinion, so I bought the cabin anyway, and a few other things [except furniture, for some reason] and ran home to get things set.

But before I set things down, I asked the group where to get a decent Christmas tree. Aisuru recommended a place and I'm not in world right now, but I remember it was at New Trails. On my way to find the trees, I got side tracked by tea.
Tea time

It was simply the most charming little tea set ever! In my RL, I used to collect miniature tea sets. In a freak accident, the shelf where I had most of them displayed fell off of the wall and things were smashed. I never did begin the collection again. :( But look how cute the pretty tea cup is!

And then I got even more sidetracked by a cool tree with poses. The whole place out there was just beautiful!
A quiet moment

Of course, I couldn't get the tea set out of my mind, so after inspecting to see who the creator was, I headed out to the store, Feathers, to look at it. I didn't end up buying it, because I don't know where I'd put it, but I did look. :)

FINALLY I got home and set everything up. I even created a nice little entrance because you have to walk between 2 buildings to get to it.

Finally, Winterland!
My winter world

I even got silly and created a Festivus pole.

...I decided my work was done. I need furniture and Christmas decorations now. :) But that can wait until tomorrow.

Yay Festivus for the rest of us!

How about some donations to the Human Fund next?

I love New Trails, the trees are super nice. I'm anxious to check out Feathers, I've never been there. I collect china pieces in rl and so have picked up a piece or two as I see them in SL.

Oh man oh man oh man - I am just trying to wait until after Thanksgiving to add snow and snow trees (of course) to my land again this year!! It was soooo cool last year! I might have to go back and look at my Flickr stream now just to remember how much I enjoyed that wintery look. :-)

Let me know when you get your place all set up with snow stuff!!!

James - I'm just gearing up for the Airing of Grievances!!

Krissy - These are simply the best china pieces I've seen in SL. Granted, I don't go looking at dishes much, but wow, I was blown away. Plus they're menu driven so you can choose which drink you want.

Anonymous - Those are the Glossy Ribbon Boots from Shiny Things. :) Just the foot part, of course. I wear them with lots of things!

Wrath - Brother, you're not even in world enough to think about changing to snow. :-p Btw, Cen was looking for you last night because of the hockey thingy.

Looks like you had a fun day! Cute little house. Thanks for saying where to find the china; it looks perfect.
