More KittyCatS Advent Calendar Gifts!

There are more and more gifts coming out of the KittyCatS Advent Calendar that wow me. What an amazing gift of creativeness and generosity we are receiving this year from these creators! Thank you so much!

First is this darling gift from Cherelle Capra of Circa for Day 11, a gorgeous holiday fireplace with decor and pillows. The cushions have 11 animations each, different in each, and marshmallow roasting sticks. The fireplace has on/off on touch.

Izara Zuta of 7 Deadly Skins provides the gift for Day 12, a gorgeous Omega applier fashioned on LAQ but can be worn on other heads like Logo and Catwa. In three tones, the set includes appliers for Tango, Phatazz and Slink hands and feet.

Day 13 brings us a whole set of fun from Rebel Hope for Rebel Hope Designs including mesh boots in red with green garters, a green knit dress with a red belt and a variety of ornamented kitty ears. What a perfect festive combo. I am seated at the gift for Day 14, a candy cane speckled bistro set from Victor Newchurch of Newchurch. Each chair includes a variety of poses for men and women and texture change cushions.

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

“Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.”
~ Mary Oliver

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

I wanted to find a beautiful fantasy area for a sort of sexy snow queen and her pet and the Winter Sim at Kalamata fit the bill perfectly. My snow queen is a sort of sexpot too, so lingerie from Mariska Simons for Christmas on 34th Street made complete sense. A combination of a mesh corset and appliers makes the outfit beautiful and elegant, and it’s giftable so you can give it to a loved one or friend for the holiday. It also comes with a complement of jewelry, including the lovely crown I am wearing.

I did not wear the other jewelry because I received this beautiful gift from Belle Roussel for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar, a set that includes a necklace, bracelet and earrings. The set also includes a texture change HUD so switch up various parts of the jewelry to match your outfit. I chose the ruby and pink because I wanted it to stand out on in this look. I really like it because it’s a very versatile and simply elegant set that could go with many looks. And I love how the bracelet hangs around the wrist with the heart-shaped charms dangling. It’s a fine set of prettiness for your holiday.

Today is the last day of this round of Shiny Shabby and Marcopol Oh has this beautiful applier on sale at the event so run over there now to get it. It comes with several eye makeups and lipsticks in his singularly elegant style. My hair is Kavar Cleanslate’s gorgeous new ‘do for Collabor88, a face-framing style with a great low profile so one can wear hats or crowns.

“A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones.” ~ Arthur Conan Doyle

Tangled—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 4

I have the tree up, lights on, some décor put out, but I had to get to a holiday party. I had this festive dress from Ever Wonder, a lovely mesh piece she was selling at Designer Showcase that included a texture change HUD so I could try a few colorways on. I slipped on my new shoes from Glamistry and great jewelry from Maxi Gossamer for this month’s Fameshed and rushed out the door to the party.

Now, you all know I have a new dog named Ziggy. She is a darling mutt, full of joy and life and coziness too. But she’s also still a bit of a puppy and she finds her way into things she shouldn’t frequently. For example, she has found (and chewed) slippers I forgot I had. She has chewed the hem on a sweater of mine (after she laid all over it). And she’s chewed up three iPad charging cords. (What the appeal is, I have no idea.) So I should have felt a little trepidation about leaving her loose with the holiday decorations out but I was already late.

Sure enough, she got into the tree. Thanks to today’s gift from Garvie Garzo in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, I have a perfect representation of Ziggy (though she’s not the same breed). When I rezzed the gift, I laughed because, yep, that’s my dog and somehow Garvie has met her. Garvie went to considerable pains to create a pet that would make you smile for the holidays, so I hope you rush to the calendar to grab this silly puppy to add warmth to your own home.

Tangled—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 4

Monicuzza Babenco has made a lovely applier for the Catwa mesh head at the Dressing Room Fusion. At a ridiculously low price, it’s absolute beauty on a budget with the beautiful features and freckles (!). Mirja Mills has created this elegant updo with a pearl-studded scarf for all your holiday dress up, also discount priced for My Attic. So I can still smile, though I will be replacing all the lights.

A Drop of Happiness

A Drop of Happiness

There will not be a spring without autumn; no taste,
If no sorrow, what taste happiness will provide, say?
If no youth, why then heart will throb; gaily and gay?
Autumn prepares to decorate the heart with haste..

~ from “A Drop of Happiness” by Aftab Alam

A Drop of Happiness

Fall is rolling in with cooler temperatures. The leaves are piling up outside and while the sun is shining, the day is ending quickly now. So it’s important to grab my drop of happiness whenever I can and remember with every fall into winter, there later comes a spring to summer. I have furnished Trace Osterham’s great new skybox with new finds and pieces that I have custom colored using SL’s tinting. Big strategy for me for decorating is using tints on mod furniture and builds. If a piece of furniture is not mod, I am not a happy person. Half of what you see in these photos was tinted that way, including the cushions of Piraiyah Novikov’s daybed available exclusively in his store at Flux Sur Mer. I paired it with ArtizanMesh’s awesome chair for Chapter Four and Sofi Trenkin’s lovely décor piece that I picked up a month or so ago. Clever pillows from Sway Dench’s gacha at Geeks n Nerds add some cute humor as well as Piraiyah Novikov’s fun Simon Says game for Collabor88 on his gothic table for Gothic Diva.

A Drop of Happiness

My dress is Ariadna Garrigus’ gorgeous look for the Boho Culture Fair, which opens tomorrow. She includes the very folk art wedges with them. My bestie is a grayhound from Garvie Garzo’s collection of pups at the Chapter Four. I am so glad to see her in these events because she’s a great artist! Behind me is Tyrek’s collection of potions on a shelf for Chapter Four as well and the awesome RL work of Joe Mainskreet through the avatar hibeebu at Gen Neutral. I saw the pieces on an ad and had to come get a few because they were mounted nicely and fit so well in with the mood here.

A Drop of Happiness

Again, I custom-colored a piece from one of Piraiyah Novikov’s gachas, added Anaisterpellie’s lovely table, candles, and rug for the gacha at The Epiphany, and popped up Joe’s artwork. Again, I have Sway Dench’s darling pillows on the chair (making <3). Below. I custom colored pieces of Piraiyah Novikov’s desk and chairs from gachas at his store (I had a big of a night there with the gachas—everything is so pretty and Piraiyah is smart enough to leave things modify so I can do this) and put my laptop win by Surrealia Anatine from The Epiphany on the desk. My doggie from Garvie, whom I have decided to name Herman, stands close.

A Drop of Happiness

Bubbles Clawtooth just came out with this casual but cute high ponytail with or without bangs (Saturday and Sunday) and I paired it with one of Inka Mexicola’s lovely skins on my own, familiar system face. Both are available at Kustom9. My necklace was a gacha pull at The Epiphany from Isabeau Baragula. First time’s a charm!
