The truth is out there.

We’re about halfway through this round of TLC’s The Garden and its Area 51 theme. There is so much spacey goodness that you need to check out – truly, all the designs are out of this world (because aliens)!

In the picture, we’ve got the Roswell Caravan from Isla Gealach and Cheeky Pea, and the UFO from Tya Fallingbridge and Pixel Mode. That caravan is just perfect — all the little cabinets inside and a messy little sleeping bunk – exactly what you need for your next UFO-tracking excursion. The UFO is actually meant to be attached and worn so that you can go floating around in your own little UFO, which is the height of preciousness. It’s pretty heavy in land impact, so you may not want to rez it, like, forever…but hell, what do I know about what you want to do? YOU DO WHAT YOU WANT.

ALSO, GO TO THE GARDEN. It’s what the little green men would want. [SLurl]

Goodness, I do love a mid-century modern house. Barnesworth Anubis brings this gorgeous mid-century gem to The Garden this month: the Atherwood Home. It’s got great lines and a fun layout — plenty of room for living, but not so big that it won’t still feel cozy. I love the brick accents, and the indoor terrace is a great surprise. And – I suspect Barnes would be disappointed if I don’t mention ;) – the textures do show some depth which makes me happy. If you have shadows enabled all the time, then this house is going to look  just amazing. But if you’re like me and walk around most of the time without shadows, this house still works due to the slight shading and the framing accents inside. Also – there’s a great working fireplace, Barnes-style! ♥

This may be the cutest picture I’ve taken for this blog ever, and I can only attribute, like, 25% of that to my own skills. Okay, 15%.

That amazingly darling tiki bar is the Floating Tiki Bar from Sienia Trevellion of Lark. It comes with the flamingo string lights, which are awesome and will be finding their way into all sorts of my decor, and also the adorable tropical drinks. It’s also scripted to give drinks and includes some really cute animations. There’s nothing about this that I don’t love.

Also, I love otters. ♥

The Floating Tiki Bar is available right now at this month’s round of Flux. Go!! [SLurl]
