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

Happiness is along the coast

Yesterday, while in the middle of doing this scene Second Life decided to be a pain and kicked me off.  After several attempts of trying to log back on I finally gave up and decided an early night was calling.

Today’s post is to showcase another great home.  The Tatum Cabin is by Trompe Loeil and currently at Uber.   From the creator’s own words, “…is a two story, wood shingle and plank cabin with an open floor plan and private upstairs level. The flagstone base wraps around to embrace the stairwell tower, filled with light and windows, that leads to the landing and the private fireplace above. Front and back covered porch, interior and exterior lighting (including stairwell chandelier), privacy windows, locking doors, and our *home control system round out the features! Plus, grab the matching Snow Add-On for wintery decor versatility when the temperatures drop!”  For more pictures, visit her Flickr here.

I’m also featuring a new tree by Little Branch.  The White Ash Tree is seasonal, so click it to pick your color.  It’s 100% mesh and it’s animated, so make sure you go pick up your own at Uber!

It’s a new month and that means an onslaught of new events.  I have 3 additional builds to show, so stay tuned!

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!

Hot cocoa days

It was a bit cold today. The day was overcast and then it rained in the afternoon, which made me want to take a nap.  I was at work, so that wasn’t possible. Instead, I settled for a warm coffee.  If you’ve been following me for a while you might remember that I rarely if at all drink coffee, usually only when its really cold and usually when my family is all sitting around the table talking and enjoying pastries.

Though I recently started to drink iced coffee and I’ve been enjoying it a lot.  I usually stop and grab it from a local shop, but on those days when I don’t have time I go for the dark Columbian coffee that is made at the office. I just add some ice and then drown it with hazelnut or french vanilla creamer.  I skipped the ice today and it still tasted good, though I much prefer it iced.

Showcasing some home decor from both Salem and Blueprint.

Have a great start to the weekend!

Ordinary or the extraordinary

Don’t we all need a little kinky in our lives?  Well if you do then make sure to check out my credits below for all the details of names and information on what I’m showcasing.  The grand master’s bed, armchair and other adult items by [ zerkalo ] are previously released items that are available at the main store.

The mirror on top of the fireplace by Ariskea does not come with the quote. You can find the mirror and the standing rust chandelier lights at Salem. The brass chandelier hanging from the ceiling is by Madras and currently available at the Equal10 event.

Enjoy! I will be back tomorrow with a Fall scene.
