The woodland

Spacious: The woodland

First it was the islet. Then, it was the swamp and the marsh. Today it is the woodland. I think it’s been quite a long time since I last built a plot as diverse as this one. It might have been two years ago or so because that was the last time I owned so much land. Back then it was 12k sq.m. in a full sim, which translates to a lot more in terms of land capacity: 2811 vs 957. Oh, the glory days! If interested, check posts Next to Nowhere, Backyard, One third, and AAPPAA Style,  from January to May 2011, depicting what was then a longish plot divided into three different sections. I really enjoyed it this time, especially when the three zones integrate more naturally as well.

As I said in the first installment, it took me almost two weeks to finish as a whole, but it was worth the effort, methinks. For this last section, I thought about a light coniferous forest, with a small stream running through the tall trees and a comfy little cabin somewhere along the riverbank. I already had all the required elements waiting in my inventory, so I only needed a chance like this to complete the project.

I have had these coniferous beauties for some time now, and only a few of them has shown up in posts before. I also wanted to use Mudhoney’s ultra-low prim cottage (shown in the pictures below) since its release last November, but didn’t had the proper landscape to set it in. Now I think this woodland setting, the fourth and last area in the parcel, suits it pretty well.

{ Items } Nature: 3D Trees, Coniferous forest – spruce; Coniferous forest II; Fern dark; Rocks & Common heather (from Natural Rockery); Blackberry bramble; Forest fern spleenwort, plant, fern carpet & roots (from Forest accessories 2); Jungle fallen ivy & branch (from Jungle valley pack). Organica, River erosion, Rock walls & stepping stones. Happy Mood, Sweet garden grass. || Architecture: Mudhoney, Holiday cabin. || Furniture: Sway’s, Asian relaxation set.

As the red shed, the cabin is a one-room structure that may have welcomed some rustic furniture, being in the countryside as it is. But well, I don’t have those right now, so I’m using the following items in their stead.

{ Items } Nature: XED Ddesign, Rubber plant (sounds like Robert Plant, isn’t it?). Terrashop, Small white poinsettia. || Furniture: Cheeky Pea, OmNom chair, Georgie bed. PILOT, Larkin set – Display case. DIGS, Arthur pictures – scattered. ililo, Ind. lamp (in red). Zigana, Lazy Sunday chair (manly man & buttercup). lame, Sarah’s loveseat.

Once again, check previous posts (Nowhere and The wetlands) for store slurls that may not be included in this one. This is a series, so there must be something integrating all of them (winks). And that’s all, folks.

Happy Holidays

…and let the Holidays begin! Whether you celebrate Yule, Christmas, the end of the world, the beginning of a new era, the Winter or Summer solstice (depending on what hemisphere your RL self happens to be), etc., make sure to have a good time doing whatever you want. Me, I just want some comfortable sleep. skål
