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! ♥

There is truly so much goodness coming out of the home/decor world these days that I just can’t keep up. I will continue to make feeble attempts, though. That’s all I can promise.

There are two new stores that you must check out. There’s .encore. by Alixxbella Resident, which has opened strong with a lot of cute, shabby chic pieces, and a ton of really great rugs. I’m always looking for great rugs. And there’s also Seven Emporium by Agustkov Resident, which is filled with really cool, quirky, eclectic, unexpected items, all very well done in mesh. I’m very excited to see what comes next from both of these shops!

That oh-so-comfy couch is new from Isla Gealach and Cheeky Pea, and available right now at The Men’s Dept. The chair – which I’m so happy about because I totally lovelovelove that style – is from Winter Thorn and {what next}, and is available right now at The Garden. Speaking of Seven Emporium, the ON AIR and APPLAUSE signs are from that shop, and of all the quirky wonderfulness that Agustkov has available, I think those two signs are my absolute favorites. Expect to see them used A LOT in my pics. Speaking of multiple uses, I think I just used that cattle skull in a pic a week or so again…and I do try not to repeat items too often, but I don’t think I could love that skull any more. ♥ It’s perfect for all occasions.

Do you realize how many awesome events are STILL going on? We’ve had so many so far, it’s really easy to lose track. But trust me – there are still LOTS of events that you need to check out.

The pic above is made up of pretty much all items that are currently available at special events, or were available at special events very recently. The lesson here? GO TO ALL THE EVENTS.

I love this bed from Isla Gealach and Cheeky Pea – part of the Abbotsford Bedroom set currently available at The Garden – and those chairs!!! Those are the Deconstructed Armchairs, also from Cheeky Pea, available right now at The Home Show. There’s a whole deconstructed set that is amazing and you must check it out. You.
