.. to the cottage of my dreams ..

Dreams grow wild in the daydreamer’s soul.

little branch 052518 various blog

Down the lane, you will find the sweet little cottage where an afternoon spent alone could revive your senses. Imagine spending the time drinking tea with the book that you so wanted to delve in to open on your lap. Hearing the sounds of the birds chirping and breeze stirring, would you just rather close your eyes and dream?

Where would your imagination take you? Would you travel through time or across the world? Would you dive into your book and enjoy the characters as one? Perhaps you might dream that you were no longer alone but with a friend or maybe your love.

Sometimes we want to share what we so enjoy. But… do you want to share this place – the place where you can escape and have the time to focus on you and your thoughts? For me, it would be my solace, my own space and I don’t believe I’d want to share with just any friend. The friend I would choose to share this space with would be a special one; one that understood the need for such a sanctuary.

I know who I would invite… do you?



In this blog, I am featuring several items from The Little Branch including the Flowering Dogwood v2 which is available at the Sense event until June 7. This beautiful tree has a lovely twisted trunk, is a 2 season tree and is lightly animated. You will also see the Yellow Orchid Tree v2 which can be found at the faMESHed event until June 10. It is such a lovely garden tree with 3 seasons and a little animation. The Moonshade Flower shrub is along the path and beside the cottage. A very versatile shrub that offers color change to white, pink, blue, lavender, or yellow blossoms.  This is currently available at The Chapter 4 until May 31. All of these are copy/modify so you can change the sizing.

043018 Little Branch Catalpa a

The Catalpa tree by The Little Branch is currently available at the current round of the Illuminate event through May 13th. This Flowering Dogwood is a 4-season tree with animation. The choices include 2 separate options for Autumn that could take you through a full year. The tree has a rounded shape with plenty of sweet blossoms. The trunk gracefully bends and the tree is resizable.

Just a little general information about the Catalpa tree (printed from Arbor Day Foundation)

  • the scientific name for the Northern Catalpa is Catalpa speciosa
  • the family for the Dogwood is Cornaceae
  • the size is generally 40 to 60 feet with a greater spread of 20 to 40 feet for plenty of shade
  • produces clusters of large, trumpet-shaped white flowers in May and June with some fragrance
  • if the flowers and leaves drop on a sidewalk or path, it can be slippery so be safe and do not plant near walkways
  • has bean-like seed pods that are 8–20″ long which turn from green to brown as they ripen. These are filled with many 1 inch seeds that are fringed at the ends.
