It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev’rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in ev’ry store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

~ “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” (version by Bing Crosby)

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

My studio has been taken over by the coziness of Christmas. My KittyCat, Calliekins, pops up from time to time to cuddle with me on the sofa while I am planning my holiday lists. The countdown to Christmas, my seasonal target date, is getting hectic. All these Advent Calendars are not making it any easier!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

First, we have KittyCats’ Advent Calendar, which is offering a darling gift from a KittyCats friend every day. Today’s gift was a darling antique cabinet with doors and a drawer that open and close from Bebe Begonia. I put books in but you could put anything you like in this antique cabinet.

Speaking of Advent calendars, Cory Edo is offering a great one at the Arcade, which offers 12 gifts for the 12 days of Christmas. You pump your quarters into the gacha machine and it spews out keys that can be rezzed to open the doors. DO NOT rez a key for a door you have already opened. You will render it unusable—one key opens one door once only. I rezzed the #1 key and got this darling holiday bird with frame.

If you hadn’t noticed, I decided to begin to look a lot like Christmas myself with this short sleeved turtleneck from LacunaInc. The weather being what it is today, short sleeves would not do well for me in RL but in SL, it’s always the perfect temperature, so I could snuggle up on a Holiday-theme sofa with Calliekins and enjoy the twinkling lights on the holiday tree from Cory Edo, both offered at FaMESHed. Ceberus Noel is offering these cute cuffed boots for the winter season made from mesh.

Finally, I gave myself a holiday appearance with green eyes from Audrey Lamede and one of the Shyla Diggs/Tricky Boucher skins being offered at the Arcade. With beautifully lined eyes and a deep red mouth, this ones a keeper if you only get one. And I am wearing the rare long hair from MissAllSunday Lemon in Ash, which is also being offered at the Arcade.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon the bells will start
And the thing that will make them ring
Is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart, right within your heart
