Java Sprockets Coffee House

Hello from the new Java Sprockets Coffee House on Puffin Head! I’m so pleased Linden Lab is going back and revisiting the older regions of Bellisseria. My favorite house is right next door to the Java Sprockets, so I am definitely thrilled by the new coffee house!

When I read about the passing of Ebbe Linden this week, I reflected on all of the past CEOs that Linden Lab has ever had, and he was the most engaging of all of them. A lot of cool projects happened under Ebbe, so I think that the grid will continue forward pretty much the same, as long as the executive team still believes in the same vision.

This is a post I’ve been waiting to write since last year. Last year, being a total Bellisseria enthusiast, I bid on two Relay for Life auctions and won them! I like that the Lab is so involved in Bellisseria and finding ways to engage the residents and hype up the interest. The auctions that I won are:

Making Campers Great Again

Spring Break, 2021

I use to think that Campers were the worst theme. They only came with half the prims, half the land, and some random claustrophobic horse trailers. But I’ve recently changed my mind about campers… cos Chalet is now the worst theme. I’ll write about Chalets in another post, so let’s turn our attention back to campers.

Starlight Skies

Starlight Skies

Hello from Starlight Skies! This is my friend Sparkle’s Linden Home that she turned into a magical sparkly forest. She was able to accomplish a lot on a prims budget! Depending on what happens with region pricing once Linden Lab is fully on the cloud; we might bring back some of our regions. I’m ready to do a beach region and park it next to Sparkle’s sparkly forest.

All is fair in Game of Homes (GoH)

**WARNING** This is a GoH post, it will make no sense to my regular fashion readers.

Let’s talk about this week’s Virtual Secrets. It has been over a decade since someone found me interesting enough to make a secret about me, so let’s talk about everything regarding this secret.

Linden Lab created a competitive environment, where they would only release one region at a time, so all of the homes are immediately snapped up within minutes. The best time to roll for a new home is during a new release and/or rolling-release (massive release of a new theme).

To add on to this stress, every premium account only has 5 abandons per 24 hour period, so even if many homes are available, you are limited in your chances to try. And unless you are rolling the minute you watch a region release, it’s incredibly hard to target a region.

When you are a Linden Homes enthusiast like me, you make some GoH friends along the way, these are the people that you run into all the time, on pre-released regions cos you both want a home on those regions. It’s true that I have a few Linden Homes, many of them I rolled during a rolling-release, and few were given to me by friends.

Hello from my Linden home! My friend Sparkle really helped me spruce up the landscaping, and now it’s the cutest house on the block. Decorating with just 351 land impact and trying to make the exterior lush with landscaping, while leaving enough for interior decor is challenging but very doable! So far, I have only semi-finished decorating 1 out of too many homes. The Traditional is my favorite Bellisseria home theme, what’s yours?

I’m wearing the new Delicate hairstyle from Truth. These soft beachy waves are to die for!

New Linden Home; Log Homes

Log Homes; Linden Home

The 5th Linden Home theme is Log Homes! I’m kind of surprised since it’s pretty much more of the same. I am a huge beach home fan in SL, but I really want a snow chalet too, for some magical Winter wonderland photos. Go check out the Log Homes in-world before the launch.

New Linden Homes: Victorian

New Linden Homes: Victorian

Are these the victorian mini-mansions of your virtual dreams? I waited impatiently along with most of the Bellisseria residents for the 4th Linden Home theme reveal. You can go check them out right now at the SL Christmas Expo, an American Cancer Society charity fundraising event.

From what I can tell, there are 4 victorian home styles to choose from, three of the homes are two-story and one is a single-story cottage. I think the inside walls can be different colors, and the homes all have porches attached, which appears to have the option to select the porch to be on the left or right side of the home.

I don’t know why I’m not that excited about these homes. I think it’s the distressed textures, I am not a fan of super distressed furnishings in SL. I guess I’ll have to see if I can score a mini-victorian on the beach and turn it into a beachy victorian, LOL!! Did I ever tell you guys that I hate grass? Yea, I hate grass.

Have you checked out the new Linden Homes? Will you leave your current Bellisseria home for one of these or get a new account (10% off Premium Membership now) to have one? Let me know in the comments!
