NEW CATEGORIES IN POH LISTINGS
The Parade of Homes Listing has been updated to include separate categories for Mediterranean Homes and Tree Houses. The application form to add your beautifully-decorated and landscaped homes to the listings now allows you to select these categories from a drop-down field. As always, if you want to supply your own photo(s) of your home decor, kindly upload these via the application form in PNG format sized 1024 x 768. Alternatively, if you provide a link to a photo album, you can use any resolution you want.
The goal of the Parade of Homes division of the BBB is to allow and encourage residents to visit others' homes, enjoy their decor and gain inspiration for their own efforts at interior design and landscaping. Parade of Homes also features Resident-owned Places of Interest, such as art galleries, cafés and other public uses to which residents have kindly put their Linden Homes in Bellisseria. Its publication, Parade of Homes Review, is edited by Teresa Firelight and features regular articles on interior design and landscaping.
You can also see some of the homes on the PoH Show us your homes Flickr Page.

...Liberty Marques's Solitude - A Tuscan Retreat
Nestled amidst the serene countryside, Solitude emerges as a quintessential Tuscan retreat, captivating visitors with its seamless blend of rustic charm and elegant luxury. From the moment one sets foot on the pathway leading to its grand entrance, it's evident that this abode is more than just a home; it's an experience of tranquility and refinement.
As you step through the arched doorway, you're immediately enveloped in the warmth of rich fabrics and woods that adorn the interior. Every corner of Solitude exudes an old-world charm, with handcrafted furniture and intricate detailing reminiscent of Tuscan architecture. The arched doorways and windows frame picturesque views of the surrounding landscape, inviting nature to become an integral part of the home's ambiance.
The heart of Solitude lies in its attention to detail. Each room is thoughtfully curated, boasting a harmonious blend of traditional Tuscan elements and modern comforts. The living spaces are adorned with plush sofas and ornate rugs, creating inviting settings for relaxation and conversation. Sunlight filters through the windows, casting a soft glow upon the terracotta floors and exposed wooden beams, adding to the timeless allure of the home.
The kitchen, with its rustic cabinetry and gleaming granite countertops, is a culinary haven for aspiring chefs. Equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and ample workspace, it beckons guests to indulge in the art of Tuscan cooking, using locally sourced ingredients to create flavorful dishes inspired by the region's rich culinary heritage.
However, it's the outdoor spaces that truly set Solitude apart. Step outside, and you're greeted by a breathtaking landscape of meticulously manicured gardens that pay homage to the indigenous plants and trees of the Mediterranean. Olive trees sway gently in the breeze, while fragrant lavender and rosemary bushes line the pathways, infusing the air with their sweet perfume.
The centerpiece of the front garden is a bubbling fountain, while the back garden offers a serene sanctuary for al fresco dining or evening stargazing. Whether sipping a glass of wine amidst the fragrant blooms or lounging by the shimmering pool, guests are enveloped in a sense of serenity that transcends time.
In every aspect, Solitude exemplifies the essence of Tuscan living. It's a sanctuary where luxury meets authenticity, where every detail is imbued with the spirit of the Mediterranean. Whether seeking a peaceful retreat or an immersive cultural experience, Solitude offers a haven of unparalleled beauty and grace, inviting guests to indulge in the art of living la dolce vita.

Serial stamp-publisher Radioactive Rosca invites you aboard The Radioactive Amante Sailboat, at Pier F04 of the fishing village of the Locus Amoenus region in the Confederation of Democratic Simulators (CDS). Locus Amoenus is inspired by and modeled after rural Tuscany with a large area of surrounding countryside.
Our very own AmandaT Tamatzui has a new gallery in the wonderful Artsville Community. As one of our stamp designers, you'd expect there to be a stamp there. And there is.
Last week we mentioned the "My first stamp" issued at our stand at the Second Life Community Exhibition in the Welcome Hub. It's targeted at new residents using the starter passport issued there, but it works just fine on full passports too. And it's very cute.
