Petit Lac Des Cygnes

An introduction.

“The Southwest French countryside, near the foothills of the Pyrenees mountain range is the inspiration we drew upon for our home.” 

First and foremost Petit Lac Des Cygnes is a private estate.  Tomorrow it will open to the public and seriously, you must visit.  I’m in awe of the work the owner has done.  I may be a little bias as she’s a good friend and since the day I met her she’s beauty and grace with a lot of spunk in her and amazing talent.

Upon landing you will be greeted by the sounds of chickens and goose.  Don’t let that fool you.  What lays ahead is totally inspiring.

These are just some of the scenes that I captured and using my own windlights. Having your sounds on is a must.

The gardens were my favorite and again I’m still in awe of the work that was put into every detail from the surround landscape used that blended so well into the sim to little inclines around the sim and walls and the mixture of grasses.  Plus the scattering of animals around the estate were just right. Can you spot me?

I didn’t take any pictures of the inside as it’s a private home, though it’s as beautiful as the outside.

I ended with this last picture, which after strolling the gardens or perhaps doing the maze you’ll find on the grounds you might want to take a break in the cafe and enjoy a meal.  It’s interactive with meals  and board games and best of all you don’t need reservations.

All the details of what you can or cannot do will be given to you upon landing.

I’m sending the estates Aston Martin to take you:  Petit Lac Des Cygnes

Nature’s best

Today it’s back to showing another great build. This Madison woodlands cottage home is by [Tia].  It’s truly an amazing home for this time of year and the details and texturing are just so realistic.  Visit her Flickr for lots more details on what you get with this amazing home.

Apart from the cottage, the Madison collection has several pieces of furniture and trees as well. These couple of closeups pictures only show some of the items, but you will appreciate them better in person really, so go check them out.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Next home is a beauty as well so stay tuned.

Just in the neighborhood

Hello everyone!  I’m going to post a second time today as it’s ready and this week is a short one for me.  That means I’m having to pack in a lot to make up for the lost time and every day seems to brings its own challenges and I rather post now in case tomorrow I don’t have time.  I appreciate each and everyone of you who just stop by and click like, make a comment or even read my short words or just enjoy my pictures.  I think they tell a story of their own.  Plus you always get a bonus with my amazing list of credits. I’m teasing. ♥

If time permits and I am not so tired at the end of the day I’ll be showcasing a parade of homes in the coming days as I have 3 fabulous builds to show you all.

In the meantime check out my first home of the week, which is another fantastic home by DaD -Virtual Living- currently available at Uber.  For more details on the house and additional photos, please visit DaD’s website.

The smells of cooking


I don’t have much time to write anything as it took me quite a bit of time just to put these credits together and I’ve got to get back to work.  I had fun doing this picture though.  I love kitchen stuff even though I spend very little time in the kitchen these days.  I’m showcasing some amazing new releases by some fantastic designers, so make sure you peek below for the details.

Enjoy the rest of the day!

Forgotten.

Morning!  Have you made it to the Epiphany? I went last night and spent probably way too much on one machine trying to get a skybox that I probably would never use.  I don’t do that enough for it to be a problem though I’m less lindens today.  Plus, I get to redeem for points so there’s a positive for my moment of craziness.  One of the gacha sets you will find at the event is the “Forgotten Summer Pool” gacha by DaD-virtual living-.  It’s fantastic for scenes and perfect for when you want a bit of realism and not everything has to be clean, spotless and picture perfect.  Here is a link to the vendor key, so you can check out the complete set.

Featuring also a new release by Little Branch. The bitter nut tree is seasonal and animated and can be found at the Limit8 event.

Enjoy the rest of whats left of the weekend!

Hello everyone.  I’m doing a second post today to showcase items from both Salem and the Arcade.  I have to confess that I’m not a big fan of Halloween, so I’m a little challenged in coming up with these scenes.

Though hope you enjoy them!
