Sorry NOT free. (Info only).

Since Faith has found some great freebies I decided that today I would check out old LM’s which is how I came to the M&M Creations shop and WOW.

I will say that the photos are NOT of the same building, I ended up taking dozens of pictures of all the buildings and couldn’t chose which one to show you so in the end I decided I’d show you just a hint of what you will find at this shop.

This is a “Full Perm” shop which also has full builds/homes out for sale and I love each and everyone of them.

I’ve just spent a most pleasant 45 mins wandering and camming around some of the best “themed” homes.

I say “themed” in the sense they have a rustic/RP/Gor/village/mansionesque feel. I really do hate to “label” the style of these builds as I think they have something for everyone. The attention to detail is just excellent from the soot stained fireplaces to the hidden room with marble seats etc.

The quality of texturing is second to none, that big grinding wheel turns around and behind it is a built in stone sink.

The person who built these builds has such a brilliant eye for details. Take for example this stone sink and the more modern window which opens to a deep window sill and you can see the older outside window frame. Anyone who lives in the UK or has visited an old castle knows that the walls are feet thick and have often when they’ve been modernised have a new window frame inside.

Every home and every room has something which makes you go “oooh, what a great idea”.

I was actually going to buy and live in this split level cottage once.

You may remember at the begining of this year we completely stripped our sim back, got a new terrain map, and then rebuilt from scratch and this build was going to be my new home. Even though I didn’t go for it in the end I can still see how it would have looked. I won’t tell you the prims because I must be wrong as they’re just way too low so I’m not sure about them.

The builds are split over 2 levels so check the ones on the ground and then hop on the TP for this cottage and some more builds.

Now for the downside, price tag. Sometimes I love a home so much I buy it even though I know that the chances are I will never ever use it, just knowing I have it in my invent is enough but although I really do think you’re getting your moneys worth I can’t justify it in this case as we are talking about 1000++++Lds.

However I can’t stress enough that you are paying for such great quality and attention to detail and remember, Christmas is around the corner so why not treat the RL and SL you a dream home to live in as a Christmas Treat.

PS. Don’t rush over and buy as I’m going to do another post on homes. As much as I hope you fall in love this these buildings I’d hate for you to see my next post and then have “buyers remorse”.

Remembering You Hunt – what a find !

I was dead stoked when I found the prize for this hunt at Rack @Steaming Ahead ! A cottage with bedroom in a tower all set on its own little grass and stone platform – and its only 11Li !

So sweet inside with beams, stone and plaster, a fireplace and a really wonderfully textured floor. The windows and glass panes are so well done ❤

Up the wooden stairs to bed and you’ll find a small bedroom with dual aspect cute windows. 1L per prize – nothing else really caught my eye, you can see all the prizes listed on the hunt blog below. (This isn’t modify BTW, so sadly you cant play around with it )

A little bit of this..(Freebie)

A nice simple Freebie from Bad Katz and it’s a full perm item.  I’ve not read the note which comes with it but I’m assuming it’s the standard rules for most Full Perm items.  If you want buzzy bees to go with it then check them out as they’re right next to this gift.  These do come with a not unreasonable price tag, they’re small and furry, make a great background noise for your summery setting and I believe they hop from flower to flower….I’m talking myself into buying them now.

To find this walk in the main entrance and veer to the left. It’s easy to find as this and the busy bee’s are rezzed for you to see. It’s set to zero so you simply buy it.

Once you’ve grabbed check this shop out, I know I have over the past years picked up a lot of fab and interesting landscaping items from this shop.

I went, I saw, I spent.(Freebie).

Redeux is open for business and for once no freebies, I do think there may be one or two dotted about but it was a shocker as of course, this event is well known for the freebies. TBH I’ve probably not unpacked the freebies not just from the last event but the event before that and even longer ago lol.

I don’t mind, freebies are wonderful but so are the sales at this event.

But of course, I do have a freebie to show you as one of the stalls at the Redeux event is a shop called “Beyond The Mist” which is new to me so of course once I’d finished checking everything out at Redeux then I TPed over.

There are 3 gift boxes randomly place around this small shop, there may be more but I only spotted 3 and the chains I’m wearing are the keepers for me.  Just 2 fits, mine and yours lol.

Once you’ve grabbed the freebie use the TP, boards around the fountain, as there are some impressive builds again in keeping with the RP theme but I particularly liked the Skybox Dungeon and if that was my kink I’d buy it but since I’d only use it as a backdrop I resisted.

PS.  If you love Belle Epoque then this shop always has offers out at Redeux, the 75Ld dress was just so tempting it hurt to TP away but I did console myself with the Belle Epoque Gacha prizes as that is only 25Lds a try.

Old Friends.(Dollarbies)

I promise I will stop shopping on the Marketplace but while I was there I came across some old buildings which I know I have somewhere buried deep into my invent and because they still have such a wow factor and I do know some of you lot do like a good background I thought I’d do an easy Sunday morning post.

All pictures were taken just using my sim setting so you can see the atmospheric lighting built into the build.

You can see by the window frame to the left that there is a lot of that painted on look going on.

But seriously look at how good that texturing is especially when I know that most if not all of these builds are 9 years old!

I’ve taken pictures of random builds so there is a warehouse, toilet, apartment block etc.  I always thought it would be an amazing and a pretty unique way to live in SL by rezzing one of the apartment blocks in the middle of a desolate plot and just decorating one or two of the rooms to live in leaving the rest empty.

Each build does come decorated outside, this is the warehouse, and now the BUT…primmy but for those of us who want interesting backgrounds OR think of this, yes love it or hate it Valentines is creeping up on us but if you do Valentine in SL rezz one of these and then create a little oasis of romance and snuggling in the middle of one of these builds.  The cold and bare walls will make your little scene just that little bit more special.

Taking a break.(Freebie & 25Ld GG’s).

I got killed not just once but twice at the PaloQuest and I can take a hint! It does look like a fab hunt and if you have the time I think this will be a brilliant way to relax and as long as you don’t get killed.

So I TP’d home, with a pack of dino balloons as compensation, they are a gift set out for everyone, to continue decorating my house and this top was sent to me.

Even as it is it’s a really nice top, lots of fits, BUT it comes as separates! I’m not “ragging” on the shirt but the vest is the one with all the fold and creases and it would be a great way to tart up a lot of other tops.  So I TPed over to TBO (The Beautiful Ones) shop and yup this is a Subscribers Gift.  As always if it’s not been sent to you and you have subbed before you know what to do.

I’d totally recommend joining the TBO group as it’s ONLY 25Lds and for that, you not only get this top with a colour hud but there is actually a lot of other very wearables GG’s.  I do recognise some of them as being previously blogged but this top, the full pack not this Sub gift, is new so I don’t know what else is new esp to you.

The Sub gift is behind the reception desk and the 25Ld GG’s are on the wall nearby.

PS.  I heard the countdown noise of Lucky Chair so I did a bit of camming and although I couldn’t see them I did spot upstairs is an outlet section as well as a small selection of builds and although I’m not buying it there is one of those compact desk sets…you will know what I mean if you look at it.  Pretty different so you might want to check out upstairs as well.

The struggle is real.

As yet no freebies but I want you to go here and then…..

…there.

I was LM hopping and came across a very interesting building and discovered it comes from a shop called No Signal so I TPed over and yup there it is but sadly it’s a Gacha Rare win and 2 attempts later I have a drinks dispenser and a pile of comics and no building.

No Signal shares the same sim as a shop called Vibes and although neither of these shops has a gift for us, damned meanies, they do have some really nice and interesting items. I was almost tempted…then I remembered my Gacha “wins” lol.

I also want to show you the sim these 2 shop share.  The shops themselves are on 2 separate heart-shaped islands, you just walk across the water to get from one to another but the windlight and landscaping of them just make for a great photo opportunity.  I just pointed and clicked and so again even if you don’t think you I assure you can take beautiful pictures here. Plus you may also cave into temptation and treat yourself.
