My schedule dictated that today’s explorations would have to be short, but I did want to go visit The Lefevre Mansion↑. The Mansion and park occupy two sims and have been designed/constructed by Kaya Angel, well known for her own jewel The Rose Theatre↑.
The inside of this building is everything it should be; luxurious, opulent, gorgeous, and romantic. I fell in love with these lamps. :)
You can find out much more about The Lefevre Mansion (with videos) on their website↑, including information for those wishing for a truly spectacular location for a wedding.
Once you’ve poked around in all the stunning corners inside, go explore the grounds and the park with its buildings next door. This is a lovely new addition to the grid!

I have envy. There, I’ve admitted the truth and, although some shame exists, there’s not much I can do about it.
There are a great number of Second Life artists I wish I could be when I grow up – Cica Ghost↑ is one of them. I wish I had her talent and textures. :)
Cica’s latest work, Little Village↑, officially opens today at noon SLT. She has raised the bar for “cute” without diabetes-inducing saccharine sweetness.
Put this wobbly, wonky little town on your itinerary – it’s a delightful escape from whatever ails you!

My project to catch up on things I meant to do weeks ago is progressing, and today I finally made it to Isla Okiddo↑. I know that Liara Okiddo↑ has spent months designing, building and landscaping this sim and the results are superb.
She has created a lush tropical world with steampunk elements and unique twists to serve as a backdrop and gallery for artists. The majority of the works I saw fit squarely into the “adult” category – but even if that’s not your thing, this build is worth visiting.
It’s not easy to create the sense of “jungle”. Hours of rezzing and plant selection and hair-pulling and revisions are required, but Liara has succeeded brilliantly and created a landscape that is a work of immersive art on its own.
It will take you hours to see everything, to explore the hilltops/walkways/forest and even underwater paths. I think you’ll enjoy every minute of it. :)
