I’m not camping – I’m Clamping

Boathouse clamping bathroom - Complete set couples & single poses

I do so like the idea of Clamping, camping but in a posh stylish way ! I mentioned before when I was at Boathouse the other day, that I did snap up a lot of gear. Who can resist when it’s so well priced and so cute. Zan got verrrry excited when she saw the “clamping bathroom set”,  have to admit that I did too. Its quaint and chintzy, just perfect for outdoors’y bathing. The bath itself has single pringle poses and couple ones. They are all really really lovely, plenty of them too. The prims are low and the details high !

BoatHouse Clamping bathroom and cabinet

Inside the blankets surrounding your tub is a little side table with hurricane lamp, shampoo and a towel, outside a little mirror – plus a delicate asian style lamp. The cabinet was another buy, it went SO well with everything else how could I leave it behind. You even get the patch of grass !

Boathouse clamping table set

My all time favourite is the “Clamping table set” – SO girly and charming. Poses for males & females and plates of toast, a little vase of flowers and a table runner. (Theres also a bible which I haven’t rezzed) As I was sitting admiring the view a donkey wandered up – he must’ve smelt the jam. Shout out for my hair, another to-die-for style by Argrace, you can wear it with or without the flowers entwined in the plait, called “KOTO” , sooper pretty. My outfit is alllll by coldLogic – yes yes, I am stilllll attached to the fowler shorts . (3 days and counting – if you’re interested)

Boathouse blues (Renting a home in Second Life part 3)

Boat House Rental Skadi

Ahh yes, I am still on my bleu phase ! I even managed to find a house that’s blue – heaven ! Big thanks to a SLU forum member who poked me towards this rental company – I found SO many homes I liked it was hard to decide upon which one to rent and play around with. The rental company is called  “ffrendz” and have a few sites – the Sim I rented on is called Skadi. At the moment its all hands on deck as they are totally revamping their rentals – new homes – new layout. When I found a home I liked, it wasn’t quite ready – so I dropped a notecard on the lovely owner Basilicum Beerbaum and asked if it could be reserved for me, so I could pay the rent when it was ready. No problem ! The very next day, I was ready to roll. Received a note from the landlord with all the information I could need and dashed over to claim my retreat.

The rent is incredibly affordable, I was surprised. I was going to rent one of the little funky beach cabins but decided to go large and splash out on a larger home on the oceans edge. This larger spacious home cost me the grand total of $386L per week – what a steal ! I also get 250 prims, so plenty to decorate the home, rez up a boat as it has access to the sea to sail. As you can see outside you have a long deck area, perfect for entertaining, fishing from and lounging about. (I have a little confession *gasp*, I usually rent for a week, enough time to get a feel for the area and take some snaps – but yesterday I put another week on the box as I LOVE this place that much.) Player came over last night – got his seal of approval too. I haven’t been bothered by a soul but I see people on the sim regularly. I’ve sailed for hours, fiddled about inside and just sat enjoying the view. The landlord is friendly but not in your face – I was given all the information I needed upon renting, a warm welcome also. The rent box contains a prim counter – so you can easily keep a tally of how much you’ve used.

Boat House Rental Skadi - side window views

The home I chose to rent is fabulous. Underneath you have your very own boat house, a place to store your yacht or speed boat. I have really enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching people sail by. Upstairs are the living quarters, this is a view from one of the side windows. as you can see, you’re not hemmed in by other houses and it gives the feeling of wide-open-spaces. I noticed that none of the homes I looked at had a locking system for the doors, so I asked about it. You can, if you want, use a security system of your own. I bought mine from Phil Deakins at Prim Misers. I think they are around 150L a pop, easy to use, simple to set up . (I’ve used these for six years, brilliant little thing) To be honest though, I’ve not even bothered closing my doors – its a nice neighbourhood and you get the feeling that there’s no need to lock up and safeguard.

Boat House Rental Skadi - interior main living spacve - Boathouse sofa, rug & coffee table

The main living area is vast, plenty of room for a sofa, desk or even split it into a bedroom studio kinda deal. French windows fold back to reveal a large balcony area that’s ideal for dining or sipping your morning coffee from. There is also a smaller room off the lounge, great for a nursery or office space, perhaps a small kitchen.

In one corner I placed my brand spanking new desk set from StandyBy Inc, currently available at collabor88. It really fitted in with my nautical home !

I also splurged a little at Sways and bought this darling little photo frame in the shape of a birdcage, you can add your own happy-snaps !

Boat House  Sofa - coffee table & rug

My superb sofa is from BoatHouse, I hadn’t been to this shop for simply agesss and I thought they might have something sweet for my new home. I was right ! Snapped up this couch and fishy shaped coffee table plus a rag rug for the floor. The animations in the couch are sooo lovely ! Singles & couples and naughty ones too o.O ! More from the Boathouse later I promise – I bought a LOTS .

FYI. Ffrendz rental community is undergoing a revamp currently, they will have rental offices set up at each location eventually apparently, which will make it easier to navigate around all the areas. There is also a web site which is under construction for the time being and may not be totally up to date, this is the web address : www.ffrendz.eu    .  Contacts
