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]

This is the latest house from Barnesworth Anubis – the Lakeside Cottage, available right now at Collabor88. I really love the layout of this house — I’m always a sucka for cottages, anyway, and this feels very nostalgic to me. I’ve always loved the simplicity of cottages like this: subtle architectural details that are lovely but don’t steal the spotlight, a great front porch for enjoying nice weather, and an overall quiet and unassuming presence. I see a lot of houses like this in RL, here in the southern US, and they’re all precious to me. ♥

The Lakeside is quite a bit larger than it looks from the outside – plenty of room for living, dining, kitchen, bath, and a bedroom or 2, even an office, if you’re creative with your space. The textures are quite flat, if you’re someone who generally does NOT have shadows turned on (like me) or who uses a brighter windlight as opposed to the defaults (also like me). But, the house is mod, and it seems like it would be pretty easy to retexture the walls – you probably would have to play around with the alignment on some of them – but it’s doable. If you use shadows, then as you can see in the pic above, the house looks amazing. So clean and simple – very peaceful, really.

This gorgeous contraption above is the Wringer Bench from Dutchie. I lovelovelove this – it looks super realistic as it is, but it’s also set up for materials to really make it come to life. (If you don’t know what I mean by ‘materials’ for SL, do a quick google for it. It’s exciting!)

The Food Fair is officially open! I mentioned this a while back, when I first heard about it, and I was very excited! As it turns out, it’s not quite what I had imagined, which was an entire fair devoted to mesh food/food props. It’s really just for all things food-themed or inspired by food. With that said, though, definitely take a quick browse through there – it’s only 2 sims and laid out in a very easy-to-navigate pattern – because there are some great actual food items sprinkled in there. These are some of my favorites from Cuplrit, Haute House, and Shai.

It’s like an optical illusion for your books. The Faux Baroque Bookshelf is a simple piece with a fancy center, and is available in two texture options. The baroque cutout lends your room some high fashion while the basic rectangle keeps you humble. You’re got many facets, and I respect that. ♥
