Who Needs Mistletoe?

1 Who Needs Mistletoe

I have never been a person who puts up their Christmas tree in RL before the beginning of December. In fact, I won’t be putting one up at all this year. It’s too much of a temptation for my cat and since it’s just the two of us, why test fate? Besides, even after 14 Christmases in Australia, I can’t get my head around Christmas in the summer. It would be my luck to trim my tree and get hit by a bushfire alert and have to take it down.

Instead, I can have a cozy little place in Second Life with a roaring fire, a big, brightly lit tree and even snow falling softly outside. I can even change it on a whim, depending on who is stopping by to visit. Today I brought along Chance to show off this very romantic pose by !bang for this month’s round of TMD. He didn’t bring the mistletoe, but honestly, who really needs it? 😉

Just a reminder that the Avi Choice Awards voting ends on Monday, December 8 at 3pm SLT. If you haven’t already and are so inclined, I would love your vote for Favorite Fashion Blogger. It’s wayyyyyy down toward the bottom of the voting page, so I hope if you pop over you don’t give up before you get there 🙂

    Good luck on the Avi Choice Award. I love your blog AND you! I am so lucky I stumbled here so long ago. The Cao wandered in and the Peep forgot to push her back out! ♡

    I voted for one I thought best>>>>>YOU Peep 🙂
    And because of this blog today, I got inspired to go set up my own xmas fireplace (even though I live on tropical island lol)
    I made (for first time) a brick wall to set the fireplace against so it all ties in nicely.
    I found a great sleigh and snowy pines to place outside too.
    I cant wait till my Tim see it 🙂

      Hugs and thank you, Cheri ❤

      This is the first time since I moved out of a tiny skybox that I haven't lived in the tropics. But I have always put up a skybox with a winter/Christmas theme. Sometimes it hasn't been much more than the fireplace and a small tree, but it's always been there 🙂 What you see is all that I have put up in this attic skybox, but it's still Christmas.

      I'm sure that Tim will love it 🙂 And no, mistletoe is NOT required to steal that kiss by the fire 😉
