I enjoyed decorating Chez Raynier while Gabriella was away.  I am hoping the festive feel will bring that sparkle to her eyes.  But only after I have had a few fun hours with all the toys and the train!  I hope your holiday season is proving to be a great one, now off to do more decorating, let’s hope I still fit in my Santa outfit!

Collabor88 November – Trompe Loeil Industrial Living

Collabor88 is packed with high detailed creations that really have to be seen to be fully appreciated.  When I saw the new release from Trompe Loeil, I loved the structures and the idea of a full community built with this set.  When I rezzed it, I was in love and appreciated it far more seeing it live, sitting on the hillside at Chez Raynier where the trees are abundant and the ocean waves crash upward into the rocky cliff face.  The Skarstind Modular Cottage & Patio had found their home.  This is an exclusive Collabor88 item, so be sure you make the time to go check it out and snatch it up for yourself.

Cory Edo has a true gift in creating all the wonders we get to enjoy in our SLives.  The detail in the Industrial Chandelier short circuited my brain, the design is simply awesome.  With subtle lighting, and pipping style frame, this is truly a unique piece to have in your collection.  It comes in multiple lengths for tall ceilings, shorties too!

Add the cozy and truly colorful Industrial Loungers and you have a place to call cozy.  The loungers come in 15 colors, and the full pack is only $L288!  I really love color in my home, and am always thankful for a real true rich blood red.  All this and more, available now @ Collabor88!

Good Ol’ Apple Pie

Autumn conjures memories of small towns, the warmth of Southern charm and cooking.  Driving down the old frontage road to get fresh apples at Nan Tannery’s farm.  The locals call her Aunt Nan, though she was Aunt to only a few, everyone was treated like family.

The fresh apples were always crisp and sweet and made the best apple cobbler.  Nan’s apple pies were so delicious, from an old family recipe that she would never reveal to anyone outside of her actual family and even then it was like pulling teeth!

Cory Edo has created this scrumptious apple cart for the current round of The Garden.  Tromple Loeil’s Apple Cart is so detailed, from worn wood with simple painted trim, metal ringed barrel crates and lovely tethered rope that makes this absolutely charming!

The old gas patio heaters are from Consignment for this round of The Garden and they are so detailed and perfect they take you back to a simpler time where enjoying that good ol’ apple pie was truly a treat.  With working flames, you can fire up these lamps for those cold evenings or days, and enjoy the soft glow of the ambient light they provide.  In a variety of colors, this is an amazing item to have for your decor needs or simply for the vintage collector.  Wavie Haller certainly put his own touch of charm into these rustic Boneyard patio Heaters.

Get your goodies at The Garden, open now!

Trompe Loeil – Autumn Cottage

Autumn filled splendor has fully driven away the scorching heat of Summers blaze, you see it in the rustling trees and gloriously cool nights.  Even our SLife has a remarkable amount of Autumn wonders.  Collabor88 is full of such wonders, and one cozy beauty is the Autumn Cottage from Trompe Loeil.  With high detailed stone and weathered wood, a warm hearth of a fire within, this cottage truly is cozy in all the right ways.  What I like most is that it fits in so many different settings, time periods, themes.

Head on over to Collabor88 to see the demo and fall in love with the Autumn Cottage.

Collabor88 Halloween

The 8th is here and that brings Collabor88 goodness!  Full of spooktacular items and amazing Fall additions to your SLife, this round is great as always.

Though the event is grand I had to get small for these adorable cat pajamas from the pajama queen herself, Katharine McGinnis, Intrigue Co.  As always the pajamas have fun stitched right into them from head to slipper and you can get them in a wide variety of sizes including ToddleeDoo.  This is my first time being a ToddleeDoo size and I had a great time being a little.

The door I stand in front of for my treats is Trompe Loeil’s Collabor88 new addition and it is magnificent.  I will bring more coverage of it later, to let you see more of the details.

BOOM created the rib tickling Mr. Sunshine Doll which is not only available in a doll form but an avatar as well, in many different color choices.

Head on over to Collabor88 for this and much more!
