“The earth has music for those who listen.”

Enter your pictures in this round of Enchantment’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare c. 1595 or 1596. The play is set in Athens, and consists of several subplots that revolve around the marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta. One subplot involves a conflict between four Athenian lovers. Another follows a group of six amateur actors rehearsing the play which they are to perform before the wedding. Both groups find themselves in a forest inhabited by fairies who manipulate the humans and are engaged in their own domestic intrigue. The play is one of Shakespeare’s most popular and is widely performed.

Sims Featured in SL Destinations Blog!

What a wonderful surprise I found last night! I was logging in to the SL website and just happened to see the words FINIAN’S DREAM under Blog Feeds. Finian’s Dream, Storybook and The Lost Unicorn Gallery were all featured in a video created by Draxtor Despres. I’ve shared the video and blog below:

This week we invite you to take a fantastical journey to the regions created by Resident Natalie Starlight and Nessa Nova.

United by thematic elements that draw from fairy tales, the fantasy genre, and her boundless imagination, these regions are visually sumptuous and will truly make you feel as if you have been transported to a different world.

The Lost Unicorn Gallery, shown in the video, features a beautiful elven castle full of amazing fantasy artwork. There are monthly shows and events for different artists, as well as rotational exhibits. Check out the official website for more information on the latest featured artist, cottage rentals, and photos.

Finian’s Dream (created by Nessa Nova), based on old Celtic Ireland, is a mysterious mountainside village. Walk into the fog to explore the castle, tavern, and rolling green hills.

There is also Storybook, which has a more whimsical aesthetic. Frolic amongst the flowers and glistening trees! This region welcomes all avatars but is a particularly wonderful place to visit for elves, faeries, fauns, satyrs, fae and the like.
