The Home and Garden Expo starts on Saturday 19th May, and currently all your favourite Home and Garden designers are hard at working creating the most amazing and beautiful displays for you all to enjoy.

Prim Perfect are sponsoring a region, and also hosting a series of talks with designers throughout the Expo, so we are hard at work too!

But I made time this morning to pop over and visit Froukje Hoorenbeek’s region, which has been inspired by a Dutch polder, the low lying land reclaimed from the sea that is such a famous feature of the Dutch landscape. She’s placing some traditional Dutch cottages – and as I love European rural architecture and wish we had a lot more of it in Second Life, you can imagine that this makes me very happy – especially when it is as well done as this.

Froukje’s region is going to be very exciting, as all the designers there will be working in mesh.  So I took a couple of photographs to give you all a little taste – and a couple of fun jigsaws for today!

The first shows Froukje and I hanging on on one of the little bridges that crosses the canals that interlace this region (well, when you are below sea level, water drainage is important!).  Froukje’s attention to detail means that even the bridges come with a range of gorgeous poses!

The second shows the interior of the cottage – the kitechen area. It really is stunning – and shows just how far you can take mesh … the textures are, as ever with Dutchie, absolutely stunning.

Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).

If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.
