First up, right next to Chez Jameson on the border of Glengarry (and nearly across the street from the Steampunk Resource Centre), Mr. Jer Mannonen has returned Canter's End to a more pastoral setting:
Mr. Mannonen sets the record for "Most Exterior Changes to a Plot Under Single Ownership," as his parcel has had several variations of the thatched-roof cottages seen above, an airship-cum-classroom floating above the ground, and a series of more modern houses - and those are just the ones I remember! I once noted to him that the view out the side of my house never gets boring.
Across the street, and adjacent to the Steampunk Resource Centre, is a plot with the lengthy name Gor-jus Animations and the Curious Seamstress (Miss Salacia Gustafson and Miss Kembri Tomsen, respectively). At left is a Victorian-style water tank, containing a mermaid AO and several stand-alone, uh, stands. Do I hear the distant roar of a certain white lioness who also sells a mermaid AO in Caledon? Inside the shop are additional animations, and Miss Tomsen's Victorian gowns, which are all quite lovely. I was struck with decision paralysis.
Finally, next to Mr. Mannonen is Miss 3Ring Binder's Celtic Steampunk structure:
Inside (and obscured by the superstructure in the above photo) is a staircase leading down to a small natural pool. The parcel appears to be still under construction. At the moment, I'll confess to seeing only a little Celtic and almost no Steampunk, but it is early days yet.
