Having a developed habit of waking in the wee small hours of the night is sometimes handy. It got me a free abode at Snow Globe which I still love. It is also a time when not that many folks are reading the forums -- and that can be a plus.
I found a post with some lovely photos of rental houses. Even better, you were able to choose your house from a house rezzer on your lot. Venturing over, I wandered the seven regions. Eventually I noted that the hud I had picked up at the landing point had TABS on the side (well it WAS the middle of my night) and made it to the rental area where I found a 3D map with one plot available. Bigger than needed with more prims than I would ever use, it was available and availability seemed like an unusual occurrence at Goosebury Estates.
Wandering through the house rezzer was an adventure in itself and after jotting down a few styles of interest I choose the LEANDER. Amazingly it was from Trompe Loeil, a house missing from my inventory -- so it either never made it to the blogger group or the notice was overlooked. Either way it is a great little house and super cozy; something that will be much fun to style.
There are plenty of lovely spots for photos so venture over.
