LIVING LARGE AT THE GROVE

I have the perfect 1/4 sim where I create and destroy to my heart's content.

I was looking for a more permanent presence - someplace with a lot of style.  Viola!  Let me introduce you to my home at The Grove.

Since I have neither the inclination, skill nor the time to build my own home, i purchased a "modest" dwelling from the Marketplace.  Pre 'Fabulous Odette Mansion - French Country House.

I dropped my new home onto my plot and it already looks grande.  I am waiting for the sim owner, Umberto Giano, to assign a landscape artist to help me realize my vision.

In the meantime, I took some pictures of the work in progress.  More to follow!


















I began working on my parlor or formal living room and am still tweaking.

Tribute to Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix died September 18, 1970, 42 years ago.  I could go on and on about the contributions he made to modern music, instead, I honored him in a small Salon.

The Family Room

I was lying on my sofa watching a NASCAR race and decided to try to recreate my family room.

This is a loose rendition because it doesn't include a TV set, but it is close.

The house I used is River Run from Varriele Designs.  It is such a warm and amazing home.

A Litte Sanctuary

When fall arrives, I tend to get more introspective.
Things aren't so important and their is time
to pick up a favorite pasttime.
For me....I love to get down to some
serious reading!!!!
 
 
In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along...Billy Joel
