First deconstruction of the year.(Freebies).

Just as I was binning all my finds from this mornings freebie hunting a note came through from Searlait Nitschke who owns Roawenwood about something called “a circle of giving” and this is where a group of shops have just dropped off some nice gifts for anyone to come and grab so I went and grabbed.

This rug looks familiar to me, I’m also pretty sure I still have it because it comes with a texture changing option and you get 1 rug with poses in it.  Perfect size for small areas and really good natural scrunching.  The cupcake is super Kawaii and although it has snowflakes on it I see no reason to have that out all year round.  The fruitcakes again come in 2 options this decorated one and a plainer one for all year round use.

This is what I tore apart.

Lovely colours with light floating twinkling lights.  I started to take it apart to see if I could remove the only real Winter/Christmas item which is the small Holly you can see at the bottom right but sadly you cannot just remove that as it’s attached to the pots….but that didn’t stop me from removing the pots just to leave those plants.

I didn’t deconstruct it anymore but even so this little clump of flowers, 3prims, really do stand out so either keep them exactly as they come in the original pots (4 prims) or break them down pop them into your own pot or in your garden or just take the 1 or 2 little plants

All of the gifts are scattered on the pile of snow you will find at the LM, although not every box seemed to contain a gift there was plenty of them to keep me out of trouble. There are lots of other things that I’m just not showing you, there is some clothing, a floral headdress, more decor items etc and I don’t think I even got everything that’s there so click away my friends and have fun unpacking and sorting your way through it.

PS use this LM, not the usual Roawenwood one as it takes you directly to the gifts plus I think Searlait Nitschke is actually going to be dropping off other gifts at this LM.

Nothing inbetween.(Freebies n Hunt).

Thanks to the heads up from one of our reg readers I decided to start what looks like another AMAZING Christmas Hunt that has just started but so far I’ve only just scratched the surface and not really found anything yet.  I can see from the list of shop names that there is going to be a total mix of quality goodies for us to find.  So instead of making you wait for me to show you any hunt prize I win, I will put the link to the “Christmas Holiday Hunt” blog where you can get all the LM’s and even better, hints and do it yourself at your own time and leisure.

You will also see from the blog that each shop also has a special discounted item out and I will admit that I snapped up the Belle Epoque one….I’ll let you see that for yourself when you go hunting for the prize.

Although the ChiChica shop is also in this hunt these next 2 items are the gift under the tree for everyone.

Big fat baubles! How often do I do earrings?  Rarely because I just don’t wear them but how could you resist these dangling down.  Made me chuckle and I will probably keep them in for a while.

In the same gift box are these shoes.

OH YESSS! Fabulous bling! It seems a long time since I last found a really good pair of shoes and so I was pleased I left ChicChica early to check the gift out but obviously as soon as I get back inworld I’ll be popping back to hunt down the prize because I’m GREEDY and I need to find something to wear in between earrings and shoes!

I’ve finally SNAPPED! (Freebies).

I had gone over to the SWANK event and looked and looked and looked some more wondering where the goodies were hidden but it was only when I returned at a later date for another try did I realise that you have to TP to a really lovely decorated Wintery are and under the tree are the gifts.  This TP is actually at the LM for SWANK, it’s on the floor just behind you.

Lots of clothes n stuff for sale but I paid more attention to the landscaping/decor items which are placed in the middle of the shop.  Personally, I’m done with landscaping, I don’t think our sim can hold any more snow, tree’s shrubs etc but I would have been tempted by some of what’s here if that wasn’t the case.

This coat/hat/glove set is one of the prizes and the lovely wintery setting at SWANK was going to be a perfect backdrop to show it off so I TPed back to the event and snapped, snapped, snapped some more till I finally SNAPPED! It’s a lovely setting but with all the flashing lights it was a nightmare to get a decent picture so I TPed back home and got the snap this outfit deserves. It also comes in so many sizes and the fuzz on the cuffs and hat doesn’t have to be worn if you want a simpler look.

BUT, once you’ve grabbed the gifts under the tree don’t rush home to unpack because you may notice that around this landscaped area are other scattered gifts.  I’ve only unpacked 2 items, this coat and I’m actually wearing earrings which are teeny tiny sparkling trees so cute!!!!

I went.(Freebies under the Christmas Tree).

I wasn’t going to go to the FaMESHed event because you all will know that it’s on and that chances like all the other events there are GIFTIES under the Christmas Tree so you didn’t need me to tell you about it but when I saw the Coco gift of this sporty/casual set I was off like a scalded cat.

This outfit was worth the lag alone but I’ve seen pictures of what the rest of the gifts are and although this event is calming down I’m going to give it a few more days (doesn’t finish till the 27th) before I head back in and this time I might even BUY something!!! If you’re wondering it’s the Trompe Loeil Sleigh, the PG version of course.

Till then check out the Seraphim blog because not only is there a link to the event but pictures of whats for sale, not the gifts though.

Failing badly.(Freebies).

I’m trying to find free clothes but failing badly, mainly because I keep on getting sidetracked cos I TORE down my old house and finally went crazy and rezzed my Apple Fall Hardwick Manor house and boy is that stunning and primtastic at the same time!  That also means I’m scrabbling around for the lowest primmed decor items I can find and these baubles hit the spot.

Just a simple unadorned box n baubles for just a prim.  I actually grabbed the other gifts, the “winosaurus” which is a wooden bottle holder in the shape of a dinosaur…I didn’t like it, and a simple rustic sideboard with a cloth draped over it which I did like but I wanted to just do a quick post so I slapped this one down and Voila and now I can go back to eating all of our sims prims.

Fiasco.

Saving for Christmas.(Freebies).

I hate to say this but you do know that there are only 2 PAY PACKETS between now and Christmas?  Most people use an advent calendar as a countdown to Christmas but me and my OH use pay packets LOL.

So here is a great way to save, in SL at least.

This gazebo is a FREEBIE! Top quality and this version with the lights on the roof is only 18 prims which is more than reasonable but if you want less prims then the unlit one is only 10.

These were a surprise and a great one at that.

KEEPERS! (I already have enough Gazebos to fill a market garden so it’s going!).  You get 2 versions, the only difference is the coloured bauble on top.  The rezzed size is the middle one and it’s only 2 prims I shrank one down and it’s 1 prim and then I made the third one bigger and it remained 2 prims.  So you can make them big for statement pieces or shrink em down for table/mantlepiece decor.  I should have zoomed in closer, I was having a bad morning, because the detailing esp in the greenery is exc.

There are other gifts appropriately placed under the Christmas tree and they too have a Christmassy theme.  You will find all of these at The Builders Box HQ.  The Builders Box I do believe is one of those monthly sub-clubs.  I LOVE them but not in SL lol.  In RL I got a monthly Birchbox delivery and each month I got to “ooh” over Froo Froo.  I’ve never really paid much attention to the ones inworld as I just don’t need but this is a wonderful way to pay your money and the excitement you will have as you unpack your goodies/surprises from some of the biggest and best names in SL.

PS I’ve just spotted we still have all that green, got to change that grass when I get inworld.

Perfect temptation (Freebies).

I’ve not only found my perfect tree I found it for FREE and it was all by accident.  Basically, I started to rummage in my invent to check out what Christmas Deccies I have but then got bored so I TPed over to the ON9 event   At this event, new designs are showcased and on each stand, one colour is at a discounted price.  I of course completely ignored all the stands, discounts etc and just grabbed all the big fat gold stars because they all contain GIFTIES!

As I was walking down the second isle I found the perfect tree, tinsel, tacky, retro but damn I thought it was a Gacha win and I was a bit disapointed as I didn’t want to waste lindens trying to win it but when I was on my platform unpacking my haul look at what I found…

My tree!

xxxtackyusr

I was so excited that I’d got the perfect tree for nothing I’ve forgotten the exact prim count, it’s about 7 I think and not unreasonable.

I went through as many of the boxes as I could and there is a whole mix of stuff, from hair to nails.  I’ve found a pair of shoes, earings and a head dress even a set of nails which I’m keeping.  So even if you’ve already got your Crimbo tree go to check out the rest.
