Winter Showcase Potomac Signature Homes

Christmas at Cedar Creek – Furnished This house is amazing! Everywhere you look there is something to rezz or customize. You can change the floor textures, rezz Christmas decorations, change the window decor, change door access, change furniture colors, etc. There are even options in the kitchen for food on the stove, oven and refrigerator. And of course the furniture has quality animations. I had fun playing with the kitchen and bathroom animations. I could not stop taking pics of this house and all the beautiful decor.

There are furniture rezzers in the foyer, dining room, living room, back deck, downstairs 2nd bedroom (the office), downstairs master bedroom, upstairs 3rd bedroom.

CKF Black Wolf_Small

These wolves are animesh, so you will need to use an animesh enabled viewer to use them. They are non-physical and do not use pathfinding. The wolves have customization options as well as commands, poses and sounds. You can even name them.
