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.

There’s a new old bathroom from Froukje Hoorenbeek and Dutchie – the Vintage Bathroom. Those sinks are amazing – I actually have a RL bathroom sink in a very similar style (it’s an old house), but honestly, I like Froukje’s better. Come on, 3d printing capabilities!!

The bathroom offers those gorgeous sinks, that reliable old-fashioned toilet (Is this the first time I’ve used the word ‘toilet’ on this blog? hold on, I’ll check….yes. Yes, it is. Mark that down.), the wonderfully detailed shower, and even the radiator and bathrobes. Be sure to take a close look at the sinks, too – some great accessories are included.

Some things make even overgrown grass look awesome. AMIRITE?

(P.S. Since some folks have asked and since I use it in lots of pics: that grass is from Shade Fantasy Outfitters – I’ve had it since 2008, I believe, and it’s still my favorite to use!)

This lovely backyard retreat is a mish-mash of goodness from a few of my favorite designers. I am still so excited about the first round of TLC’s The Garden – Spring never looked so good! – and it’s been a great inspiration for some pretty awesome (if I do say so myself) vignettes.

The wood pergola and the couch/chair seating are from MudHoney’s Rayvn Hynes. I think I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I’ll say it again – Rayvn is rocking the mesh, and I love seeing each new set she releases. I also really love the little wrinkles she works into her upholstery pieces – see the pillows on the couch! SO REAL. ♥

The massage table and spa set is from Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie – who also rocks the mesh HARD – and I just adore the little details of the tray, above. Hot stones, essential oils, and soothing aromatherapy candles? Yes, please.

Speaking of yes, please — I was SO happy to see that Froukje has released some mesh plants. A whole slew of ’em! I love including greenery in my rooms, and these are just gorgeous. They’re mod, too, which means I can size them up or down to fit specific spaces. I SUPPORT THAT.

Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie has won my heart once again with her latest release, the Gustavian Bedroom. ♥ The shabby wood textures are just perfect – so shabby! – and the little details and accessories are gorgeous. All the wood pieces are color-changeable, as well, so you get lots of choices of shabby finish. I went with the white wood because I just lovelovelove the vintage feel of it.

One of the most exciting items at this month’s Arcade, in my opinion, is the Teardrop Trailer from Tegan Serin and floorplan. I’m a little biased, sure, since Tegan is my music soul mate, but seriously – look at this preciousness!

That’s just one of the cutest things in all of ever. It’s available in a ton of gorgeous colors that you can try for in the gacha machine, including a few rare options that include a lovely blanket draped across the roof – perfect for gazing up at the stars. The trailers all come with a few cute animations for you, your pals, and your close pals. Perfection!

Also at the Arcade are the Anywhere Lawn Chairs from Winter Thorn and {what next}. These are so nostalgic to me — if you’re old like I am, you remember the days when these were the chairs that everyone had. They left terrible marks on the backs of your legs, and that’s what summer was all about. Right? Anyway, you can play for these at the Arcade – the coolest thing about them is that they truly are “anywhere” chairs. They’re meant to be worn as an attachment so that you always have somewhere to sit, even when you can’t rez a chair. Love it! (Please note these aren’t able to be used as just, you know, regular chairs. You can rez them as props, like I did for the picture, but you can’t sit in them. The sitting only works when you’re wearing them.)

That great campfire and cooking stand is from Froukje Hoorenbeek and Dutchie. She’s got a great mesh set with the campfire, firepit, some lovely logs for sitting around the fire – a great set for your outdoor spaces!

Pick up your Teardrop Trailer and Anywhere Chair at Arcade, from now until March 31!! [SLurl]
