Landscaping made cheap ‘n’ easy.(25Ld Tue).

I finally managed to work my way through the 25Ld Tues list even though it’s now Thur and yes sadly some of them are now gone as those sellers have decided that their offer will only be available for just 24 hours but fortunately Dysfunctionality (DDD)  looks like they’re keeping their 25Ld offer up for the whole week and I was lucky to snag this grass (and in the previous weeks lots and lots of shrubs).

Although I’ve rezzed it where there is already grass this is nice and dense texturing not the gapping you can get with low primmed grasses.

So I will be slapping these flowers down all around our sim.

You get 2 versions in the pack and I think that’s simply a case of bright and not so bright, check the board for the details.  Not only is this a lovely dense patch of flowers if you click on it you get a pop up hud which gives you not just 4 different textures, the only one I’m not showing you is the very white wintery one BUT also you can change the actual shape of the patch with the hud so you can have it round, half round, roundish and square.  Anyhow there is a patch of it set up in front of the 25Ld board for you to try for yourself.  When you land at the shop just follow the signs on the ground which will take you right to where the offer is.

If you’ve not been to Dysfunctionality before you are missing a treat I have bought so much from here esp the Veggies for making your own little vegtable plot.  There is much more than plants here but for me this is the first stop when making a garden in SL.

Dysfunctional ?

Dysfunctional Designs - mesh house 14 prims!

I was at Dysfunctional Designs the other day – positively NOT looking to buy yet another home ! Then I came across this sweet build. Its called the seafarers cottage and boy oh boy its SO low in prims your eyes will water. Just 14Li ! Its got so many features too, see below:

This cottage is approximately 14 land impact and 15×15 footprint (the outer posts/walkway) and contains 3 roof options, 5 exterior options, 9 interior options.

Inside you have two living spaces, downstairs which I’m currently using as a lounge, then a staircase up to another level which I’m going to use as a bedroom / artists loft. Running around the middle of the building is a useful gantry, I’ve set out an Autumnal bench and will find a few other bits n bobs to decorate it no doubt. Unbelievably this is priced at just $195L !

Sunday…Sunday…

Sunday new

Its Sunday, and I was trying to get in various shopping events, getting more and more frustrated with each attempted teleport. I wandered outside, and sat at my harp in the grounds of our home sim Dreamworks. As I sat there and the beautiful harp music surrounded me, I begun to relax, looked around our glorious home and sunk a little more softly into my chair. I think it’s so easy in Second Life to lose sight of what we already have, it’s always onto the next event, the latest sale etc. So today – Sunday – I am going to savour and enjoy what I have, the things that are in my Second Life, be that objects or friends. Try it  for yourself, you are always welcome at Dreamworks if you need a place for some peace & quiet. Landmark below ❤

Couple of pretties (Freebies)

Free gifts !

I’ve been on a bit of a spend up this weekend, primarily because Zan and I bought a sim surround for our island (it’s called Dreamworks if you wanna pop over and cruise around!) The surround is stunning but a bit primtastic – so we had to have a cull of stuff – boohoo – anywayyy I popped over to one of my favourite decor stores and managed to buy a few new things that were MUCH lower in prims, about a saving of 150 in total ! While I was there I wandered over to the freebie zone, you need to join the group but its free. The store is called Dysfunctional Designs and I alwayssss come away with something new ! It’s all so beautifully crafted, mostly mesh and a lot of it’s just 1 or 2 prims, brilliant for us prim misers huh? This dainty stone bed of flowers is just one of the gifts (there are loadssss) at 1 prim it neatly filled a gap from a bench I had there, the hanging paper lamps are also 1 prim – for the whole lot. (The tree behind is also from DDD – very reasonably priced and it has some neato functions that allows it to grow fruit – love it)

FREE gifts !!

I also snapped up two of these darling little planters, just 1 prim and there are two, green ferns as above and red flowers. They sit so nicely on my doorstep I adore ❤ I dare you to visit this store and not buy a thing, its just impossible !

Cry me a river

Arcana vintage radiomusic box NEW! Arcana pouffe NEW! [DDD] 1 Li sets of multi texture candles @ The Christmas Expo NEW!

definitely a day to reflect and be quiet, and I found a perfect way to do just this. Arcana has a beautifully made Antique vintage radio out on sale. I love music boxes and have always collected them in SecondLife. This looks just like one. Old wooden box with a crank turn handle. It’s just so pretty. It doesn’t just look good, it’s actually a radio also. Its made in mesh so the prims are kept temptingly low ! Another new item is the crate Im sat upon. Sooo many poses in it its more like a photography prop ! It also has a menu so you can choose from many different designs for the  logo and differing colours for the cushion. If you go buy one of these by midnight Saturday – you will pay just 24L .

My candles are something I treated myself too at The Christmas Expo yesterday. They are by Dysfunctional Designs and are just amazing ! You get three versions, I used them all together to create this shape – but it’s up to you how you arrange them. Colour change, you can also set the opacity of the flame and each section is just 1Li !

The Christmas Expo 2013

Christmas Expo Kaerri Elvis the Christmas deer (rideable) House of Avro rideable Rudolph NEW!

Oh…My…Lord. Can I BE any more excited about Christmas?! YES I can ! I was invited to take a mooch around this years Christmas Expo & Breedable Fair. Frankly, I was like a child in a candy shop. Strolling about, mouth open, dribbling over all the goodies and snow and decorations and animals and pets and and and and more! I paid two visits and don’t think I even saw a quarter of the four sims that are being all set up for the grand opening tomorrow. Make sure you’ve got a coupla hours to spare, cause you really really don’t want to miss a thing. SO many stores I have never been too, SO many pretties, head spin time ! For me this is the first Christmas I’ve been able to fully appreciate what creators are doing with mesh. The saving in prims is astonishing and the realism incredible. Above is the free mesh outfit from Botanica, which is right up my street in PINK . You get the boots, the outfit, plus a jaunty santa hat. I’m sitting astride the rideable Rudolph from House of Avro. Heaps of fun cause he drives like a proper vehicle, speed controls,and dust from his hooves, brilliant ! My companion on the left is “Elvis the reindeer” , he is made by Kaerri, purely for decoration but I just adored him.

Christmas Expo House of Avro mesh tree 8Li - [DDD] Wreath 1Li - Kismet Precious gifts wooden boxes NEW!

In support of Relay for Life of Second Life and the American Cancer Society, the 3rd annual Expo will open on Thursday, December 5th, 2013 at 10am slt and will end at 10am slt on Sunday, December 15th! There are donation boxes scattered about if you have a few spare pennies, plus each store, and participant on the breedable sims has a “naughty or nice” box. Touch it and if you’ve been a good person you get a gift! If you’ve been naughty, you get a lump of coal . (I like coal – so there) Above is the prettiest tree I ever did see. It’s just 8 prims and just looks SO real. Stood on a wooden base, with its lights twinkling away and a smattering of gifts, its perfect. On the wall is an item I HAD to buy, it’s from Dysfunctional Designs. The wreath is just 1 Li, the wonderous thing is you can choose heaps of different colour schemes for the baubles, the wreath and the fabric ! I was also rather taken by the precious gift boxes by Kismet. Totally different from anything Id usually go for at Christmas (I’m a glittery sparkly kinda gal) but they really stood out for me. Original, more subtle and so well made. If you’re into a more traditional look, check Kismet out, totally lovely.

Christmas Expo Myrrine decor items NEW!

Another new store for me is Myrrine. I stood and just gawked at all the decorations. Shabby chic yet also sooper stylish. I’ve scattered a few bits n bobs around in my SL home and its brought a real warmth to my space that was lacking before. Natural woods, and simple colour palettes.

Christmas Expo NEW!

These boards kinda lean against a wall, artfully casual huh? Like you almost thought about nailing them up, but never got around too it ! Love it. I really fell in lust with the wall decor panel above, whats not to like, its got PINK in it.

Dont think of this as shopping only, its got a LOT more to offer. There are photo ops, a raffle & auction,a hunt and of course Live music and a chance to have a wriggle with your mates.
