Same LM, Different Post.

I knew there was a reason I had to call into the “The Artist Shed” shop and it wasn’t until I was wandering around inside trying to find at least 1 of the 3 free hunt prizes I rembered and it’s this perfect little tree, not free!

Now that my home is smaller I couldn’t rezz the big bold tree I had out last year, it was a case of “understated or nothing” and this tree fits the bill perfectly.

Only 75Lds and 3 prims, even better is once Christmas is over I’m moving this outside into my garden.

As mentioned there are 3 hunts going on inside the shop, and if you’ve read my last post you will know there is a lot more going on outside of the shop as well.

The Creative Spark – Holiday Cheer !

New round of the Creative Spark begins today hurrah! I really loved this sweet item from Insanity’s Owns. Its called “Christmas in a bottle”, and it really is ! It’s a large size, as big as a traditional Christmas tree, there are little snow flurries inside around the tree. The Li straight outta the box is 2Li, I made mine very slightly smaller and it went to 1Li. You can get your paws on this for just $50L during the round.

This is “IT”.(35Ld Saturday)

Every year I try to dress our Christmas tree (in RL)differently, NO I most certainly am not one of those people who can afford to wastes a ton of money on new decorations but I often find with a bit of imagination and a whole lot of glue, paper, tinsel and a Pinterest addiction I can knock something up and this tree from Simply Shelby has totally inspired me!

It sent me scurrying to my craft supplies because I know I have fake flowers and other random stuff which is what this tree is made of.  Check out the shape as well as the branches are just randomly placed.

I’ve literally just grabbed it slapped it down, zoomed and snapped with no editing because as far as I could see or rather not see there isn’t a demo set out but I know Simply Shelby products so well I didn’t need to see a demo.  This is the 35Ld Saturday offer and it will be there till next Saturday.  Simply Shelby is one of those shops that has lots of bargains set out for us and I’ve never been disappointed.

It is 27 Prims which is actually ok when you see all the stuff shoved in those branches.  Since there is no demo I will rezz a copy of this at our LM so you can pop over to our sim to see it before you make your mind up.

PS.  Forgot to say the lights all flash and change colours.

Lucky me but NOT Free GG’s.

I had a really nice surprise because I was actually going to join this PAID FOR group just to grab these group gifts only to find when I tried to join I was already in that group, woohoo.  I think I remember joining when for a limited time the group was free but now it’s gone back up to 100Lds and even though it turned out I was already a member for what I scored I was actually going to join just for these are the tops.

I just slapped em all down, you get 4 little uns and 4 big uns and those Pumpkins as well.  The larger ones are 5 prims and I think the smaller ones are 2 prims and of course the Pumpkins are just a prim each.

An excellent mix of branches, bare and lit.

I spotted this one which you can’t really make out in the first picture as it’s out of the frame but it shows off the detailing to perfection.  Because this is a paid for group I’ve just used my Nams setting but they look amazing in all lights and this quality and the prim count will last for many Christmases to come.

Because I didn’t linger in the FB (Fashionably Dead) shop I’m only going by memory but FB is a fashion shop so the Christmas trees are probably just a one-off for Christmas but this top, however, is a prime example of the clothes you find here.  It’s just a cropped vest but with all that natural detailing which makes it look so real, the creases, hemp line and yes the nips as well.  This comes with a colour Hud, 5 shades in total but all in the same palette ie white, grey, greyer, greyest and black LOL.  There is another GG which I remember is what I blogged previously at the same time the group was free so I will leave that as a surprise for you but the design/styling of it is pretty well known and it also comes with a Texture Hud.  All 2 group gifts are on the table at the entrance.

Lots of the groups I am a member of are ones I’ve actually paid to join and chances are you too have joined a few but because I get sooooo manyyyy notices I probably miss out when new Group Gift have been set out.  So check your groups and even if there isn’t a notice in there about a Christmas gift still think of popping over to the shop to see if there is a Group Gift you’ve not been told of.

OH Drat! I logged out before making a note of the sizes but again from memory all standard mesh body fits but I’m sure you will see on the pictures in the shop what they are.

Go now! (FLF 50Lds).

I’ve found it I’ve found the thing which makes my cold Winter heart skip a beat.

I’ve never TPed so fast and I would have elbowed every other AV out of the way to grab this.  This is now outside of my house and with that superb twinking tree I purchased from a couple of posts ago, I think the outside of my house just screams CRIMBO IS HERE!

I just slapped it down and clicked 1 picture and then logged out because I just had to get this post done asp as I have a feeling that the “ANHELO” shop might just be one that only has them out for 24 hours but I could be wrong but I’d hate it if you missed this offer.

Yes, it’s about 32 prims so I’m going to have to pop back inworld and delete something, we like to keep a certain amount of prims free, but damn it’s worth every prim.  Taken in the sim setting I’ve chosen for Winter, till I change my mind again, it’s stunning not just in the texturing but those lights on the tree flash brilliantly.  You do get a menu so you can choose to have them on or off and how much they flash and I, of course, have jacked them up to full flash mode LOL.  I bought the red version but there is a blue one if you want.  Don’t TP out until the item is delivered to you.

I have visited ANHELO a couple of times and not just to buy their FLF (Fifty Linden Offer) but it’s not a place I like to visit as their builds/decor are unique and stunning and I am weak in the face of “unique and stunning” if I remember correctly they have a retro car with stunning poses that I’ve give my SLink Physique right arm for but so far I’ve resisted lol.

PS Just in case you’re confused, I reread my post, you’re buying the car with that Christmas tree the other tree isn’t in this picture.

I wish I wish…

….that this tree was free because that way we could all light up SL but it isn’t.

tree3

Both of these pictures are taken in our Sims setting and I’ve not fiddled with the photo in the slightest because I wanted you to see how even in a pretty standard sim setting it Glistens.  You can also see the lit “shadow” on the ground.

tree1

So again using only the sim setting and with one of Faiths backdrops to show off the star bursts which make up this stunning tree.   I’ve managed to control myself and only rezzed 3 so far but at a single prim I might just go APE and make a whole forest of these things.

Priced at a reasonable 149 esp since it’s copy and mod.  If star burst isn’t what your after then there is a row of them to choose from some come with swags.

This comes from Botanica who have a Christmas section added to their sim.  I’ve put the LM to where the tree’s are but I think you may end up in a landing area in which case just walk ahead or open your map and you can see that a quarter of this sim is white with Christmas Decos and tbh it’s really easy to find them.
