Seems like everybody’s having a birthday lately (mine’s in November…heads up). The Season’s Story is 1 year old…seems longer doesn’t it? If you haven’t made it in yet, keep trying…there are all kinds of free birthday goodies from the designers to scoop up. Kustom9 is also the big 1 this month and also has some fabulous finds from equally fabulous designers to celebrate. Sari-Sari has cute poses with apple props available there…too cute to pass up!
Sari-Sari also made this Gluwein (mulled wine) stand for the Seasons Story. Mulled wine….yummmmm. It comes with everything needed for a warm cup of heaven….oranges, cinnamon, apples, wine, big mugs and a pot ready to go. Perfect for the chill in the air as Autumn sets in. We had a cold front come in last week and we dipped to a frosty 87 degrees (that’s 30 in Celsius) so we’ll stick to the iced refreshments for now. But when it does get chilly…and hey…it IS chilly in other parts of the world…I added a mulled wine recipe at the end of the post….yummmm. The road sign and pumpkin sign are from Sari-Sari also and are reduced this weekend for The Neighborhood!
Adding to the crisp feel is Sway’s Autumn items at the Mystic Realms Faire, which is still packed and going strong. The street lamp, wishing well, Autumn pumpkins, jars with candles and stone steps are all available there. The wishing well has 10 single and 8 couple poses built in…one cuter than the next!

Sari-Sari Apples pose #4 with apple props@ kustom9 in top picture
Sway’s wishing well single pose #1 in bottom picture
3/4 cup water (or orange juice)
3/4 cup white sugar (or less to taste)
1 cinnamon stick
10 whole cloves
1 (750 ml) bottle red wine
1. In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
2. Cut the orange in half, and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel, and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy.
3. Pour in the wine, and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves.
4. Serve hot in big fat mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses will break.).
5. Be happy 🙂
