La Petite Joie Café

La Petite Joie

My fondest memories of Paris are sitting outside a café everyday for lunch, eating grapes and cheeses and crackers and sipping Café Au Lait.  I’m from New Orleans and was raised on this half and half combination of strong coffee and steamed milk….it just makes me so happy.  So sitting there on the sidewalk, holding the giant mug in my hands and people watching …. I could have done that all damn day if my friends would have let me.  I am not embarrassed to say that I spent my breakfast like this also, with a warm baguette or pastry.  I had a hard time passing a café or patisserie without wanting to stop for a bit and watch the world go by.  There is nothing so inviting as the gorgeous smells wafting out of the opened doors and a cushioned chair calling your name.  8f8’s La Petite Joie Café reminds me so much of those summers spent enjoying life from a sidewalk viewpoint.  Little joy indeed.

The café is spot on…..absolutely nothing looks out of place.  Even the delivery trike is perfect.  We have come to expect nothing less than spectacular from 8f8, and his collection for this round of the Arcade is no different.  It is one of the most sought after collections in the gacha groups as well as one of the most talked about.  The individual pieces are amazing (the copper espresso machine is to die for!) and detailed beyond belief.  The only things in these pictures (which are NOT edited by the way) that are not part of the collection are the cobblestone ground by aisling (looks perfect with the café doesn’t it?!) and the cat welcome doormat by Sway’s.  The adorable door mat is part of Sway’s collection for the Arcade and looks like it fits right in with the café.  More on Sway’s fabulous creations in the next post!

As I said, I didn’t edit these pictures at all, I took them on high with the advanced lighting to get a few shadows and some natural sunlight and put a faint border around it….that’s it.  I wanted you to see how amazing these pieces look on their own.  I put the café together on my bluff above the beach and am going to leave it there.  If you want to come see it, inspect it, try out the sits, take pictures…whatever…feel free to drop by and do so.  We could have coffee and pastries and watch the SL world go by!!
