Cheap and Cheaper.

I am a house hoarder.  Houses and skyboxes are what I waste my Lindens on (as well as plants, gardens, furniture etc) so I maybe a Cheap B* when it comes to clothes but it means I have the money to add to my hoard.

Normally I wait for events such as The Arcade or FLF(Fifty Linden Friday) or Collab88 where you can find amazing bargains esp from shops such as Trompe Loeil but I decided to check out the main shop to see if there are any gifties and there wasn’t but it wasn’t such a loss in the end esp if you’re willing to spend a few Lindens.

First is this Gacha win.

This is an old Gacha from a previous event but it’s now outside the main shop with some other Gachas and if you’ve never seen it before or forgot about it and need a small and yet perfectly formed home for ONLY 25Lds you cannot beat this.  There is also a model rezzed out next to the Gacha as well so you can check it out.

A “Shotgun” shack is usually a small single room and the reason it’s called “shotgun” is if I remember correctly you can shoot a gun through one door and it goes right through and out the back door.

Inside the main shop there aren’t any Freebies for Group VIP Members, or at least I didn’t see them. What there are is some discounted items, 2 builds and 2 items of furniture and it was this sky house that was the “Woah” for me.

You get 3 rooms in total all large and open, each has a fireplace and windows etc if I remember correctly 2 are identical and the 3rd is slightly different which just breaks up the monotony if there is any because these pictures were taken in my sim setting so you can see the texturing and details which go to make a classy design.

Big spacious rooms with lots of detailed windows and even a window type nook.

And if you join the Free VIP Group and this amazing skybox is just half priced at 250Lds.

As you can see outside is a snowy dark wintery scene but don’t worry as you get 2 versions, the skybox with or without the surround and a surround on its own.  A couple of extra’s is also blazing log fires for the fireplaces or a row of lit candles.

Like the Shotgun Shack there is a demo out for this build as well, above the desk in the entrance is the TPs so go to the “old builds” and you will be able to rezz yourself a demo for a good look at but don’t buy it from the rezzer, TP back to the main shop and this as well as the other Group Discounted items are on the wall behind the reception desk.

PS Can’t remember the exact primmage but it was under 50 for the shack and without the backdrop just under 100 for the sky box and with the back drop just over 100.

PPS I’m hoping the LMs take you near to the marks but I have a feeling the LM is preset by the sim and you will have to look around to find the main shop but it’s really easy.

Renting a home in Second life – Its all Sunshineacid

Rental Home 250L per week Furnished (plus a few prims)

Its been a few weeks since my last exploration of the rental home market, and as I was feeling particularly lazy I looked for furnished accommodation. Look what I found ! Actually I found this same home in a different location but it had just been rented so I lucked out – or so I thought. Luckily for me the owner contacted me and offered to put up an identical home . I know what work that is, even for a small home – but it was done in an hour and I was ready to rock up and enjoy my new place. I cant believe this build by Trompe Loeil – “Shipping Crate Studio Wood” passed me by, it’s totally lovely and cozy. So, the deal is $350L per week, with 25 prims FULLY furnished. I was pleased with the level of decor, infact I went straight out and bought the sweet bed by tarte for myself after sampling its delights. The whole sim is gorgeously decorated, I didn’t feel out of place mooching about. Theres bridges to pause by and some really terrific trees and landscaping. If you’re into photography its a great place to be.

Rental Home 250L per week Bedroom

Here is my bedroom, ever so snuggly and peaceful, the aforementioned bed (comes in a blue pattern also) and various posters and drapes add a delicious shabby ambience . There are heaps of other homes for rent, bigger and around the $500L per week mark. However, this one suited me and my budget down to the ground. You land in a small office that displays the homes up for grabs, just touch the picture of the one you’re interested in and it will plonk a landmark in your inventory to go visit – simple. If you like it, pay the rent box and contact Claire Bricklin for a group tag. (Theres a few other names listed on the notecard you get after renting to get a group tag also)

Lounger in the main space , apologies about the fuzziness on the pillows, SL was hating on me when I took the photo ! I’ve visited at various times of day and night, and it always seems to be running perfectly with no Lag and quiet neighbours. Customer Service is BRILLIANT, I couldn’t ask for more help and I was made to feel at home, really lovely.

Snug as a bug in a rug

Trompe Loeil  sent out a lovely surprise via their subscribo yesterday..The Teardrop bed / chair, its mesh (hopefully you’re using a mesh enabled viewer by now !) Beautifully made & textured…with three lounging or sleeping poses and one sit. There are two options of ways to hang this piece..a ball hook or ceiling fitting, both worked for me. Hung mine by the pool, looks fab! If you hop over to Trompe Loeil  and join the subscribo you will still find it in the history…great way to try out the craftmanship of this stores work (its amazingggly good)
