Let me bore you.(Freebies).

Yet another post about something I mentioned in a previous post.

This is supposed to be a “Lady Gaga” pose but this isn’t about me it’s about the backdrop and the black square.

Most of you won’t find this interesting but if you take pictures in SL you will find this gift very handy.

I won’t bore the tits off you about the details apart from it’s free and it comes with a very easy to use Hud which you need to play with it to appreciate it.

This comes from the Andika shop.  Although this shop has poses, and I’ve tried them all, it the AMAZING food decor I think most of us know it for.

I don’t think I’ve shown you the other freebie which is a plate of Blueberry pancakes but I definitely know I haven’t shown you these sweet orange treats.  One-click and you get a wearable version and although not perfect the eating AO is still one of the best in SL.

So pop over to Andika shop grab the sweet treats and the photo tool and have fun.

PS.  I should have thought about changing my settings to allow for shadows because I know my computer can handle them and it would have made the pictures of the backdrop/light more effective but what’s done is done so just think of me casting a shadow.

Total randomness. (Dollarbie & Freebie).

I’m doing what I love to do best and that’s eating and of course random TPing in SL which is how I ended up at the PPC (Prim Pile Creations) shop and this “Around the Grid” hunt prize.

You can just pay 25Lds and buy it but trust me the hint is simple enough for even me to find it and that way it only cost 1Ld.  It’s obviously the skeleton but it does come linked to the chair and there is a patch of grass under it.  YES, EDITABLE…oh I just love that.  TBH as it is and esp for only 6 prims it makes a great item on it’s own but then again you could remove the chair and pop him/her onto one of your own chairs.

Then I went back to LM grab and yet again I’d almost missed another freebie which is this Group Gift.

Because I knew the skeleton was editable I had my fingers crossed and YES this too is editable…I need to get a life as I get way too excited over things in SL being editable lol.

You can strip everything off the top of this tray table or just pick and choose what you like.  A really nice piece of furniture.

BTW The LM takes you to the middle of the sim but the building with these in are just in front of you, just follow all the special deal markers on the ground.  You will also see a rug, not free otherwise I’d have shown you it, but I was rather taken with its patchwork textures.  Once I’ve finished lunch and do another post I’ve LM’d this shop to return to as it’s new to me but not new to SL.

Around The Grid 7 – Hunt

Always love this hunt – if you’re impatient – like me – you can just buy the prize of $25L – I had my miserly head on yesterday and determinedly struck out to find the gift from Loggin Off Homes. Hurrah I found it ! So for just $1L I had my paws on this rather fabulous Artists cabin. Its so well made and at only 29Li it wont break the prim bank either. Check the blog for all other participating merchants and clues to find the gifts.

Big enough to burn a corpse.(Freebies).

I promise you I did go out and do something else for a change but I’m home now and so to kill time before I go do something else I decided to check to see if these freebies were still out and happily they are.

I can’t remember what they called this but it’s a Chimnea?  Although you can’t really make out the proportions I can assure you I’m actually stood behind it lol.  So a pretty substantial patio filling item.

If you need something smaller then no problem as this is also included in the gift bag.

A Ying and Yang tabletop item. The water even ripples and check out the close up of the little fishes.

I think both items are 5 prims and not editable.

You find these in the gift bag on the reception desk and it’s set to be bought for 0Lds by anyone.  There is 2 items of clothing in the bags as well, one for him and one for her but go for these not those.

Beep Beep Beep…Delivery.(Freebie).

I will confess that although I’m being pretty strict and keeping to my rule of 500Lds only I am making a sneaky “buy” list for things I want I really want but can’t afford and so next month I will be returning to B-Made to buy something I’ve seen in the shop and until then this freebie is going to keep me happy.

Free to join and then pay a Linden and get a Linden back.

Although I’m sat on it in a driving pose it’s static, which is pretty good as I crash everything.

The B-Made shop is I think a more recent shop to SL and not particularly big and yet I’ve already bought 4 things from this shop and now have a 5th item earmarked for a later date.

Use my LM even if you already have it because B-Made has moved to a pretty darn wonderful Desert sim and it’s the perfect backdrop for some pictures.  Just up the hill is also the latest round of Salon 52 and there are other shops on this sim but I’m logging out.

UPDATE. I thought the issue with landing in the middle of the Canyon/river was just me but it looks like it’s the same for Faith so I’ve been TPing in and out of SL for way too much time this morning.  I’ve dropped the owner of B-Made a note about it. However, I’ve managed to get a better LM and although you still end up in the canyon/river you will see ahead of you a path leading from the river to the doorway of the B-Made shop….I promise nothing though but again just use the Salon 52 link and it’s just down the road from there.

With Dread.(Freebies & Bargains@The Wash).

I dreaded going to the wash because there is usually so many bargains all those bargains cost me a fortune and this time history was almost repeating itself because I spotted 3 things which I almost clicked and bought but I resisted and instead grabbed all the GIFTS!

It’s not often there are freebies at this event because of the superb bargains but there are plenty of little blue gift boxes set out on the stalls.

This is the first box I opened and it’s a “Classic SL Design”. I’ve grabbed and binned many of this style but in this case, the colours sing to me.  Obviously, the windlight/facelight and editing have affected the colours but it’s beige with a slight satin sheen and a touch of gold to the frill and I love it.  It comes in many fits and 2 versions, this is the V2 version.  In the same gift box is a freebie for them but TBH by that time in RL the sun is blazing and I lost all interest in the details lol.

So I can’t tell you which stall this came off or even why there are gifts set out for us and instead of logging back in I’m putting on my RL baggy clothes, slapping on the sun cream, making myself a mug of coffee and a crisp sandwich (go on try it you won’t regret it) and I’m going to sit in the sun and remind myself of how it’s the simple things in life which really mean the most.

You win some, you lose some.(10Ld Decor (down to 502Lds now)).

I now often check if an inworld shop also has a Marketplace shop because sometimes there are extra treats in there or it’s simply easier to find them in there than in the shop which is how I found these.

The room I’ve rezzed isn’t really the best to show off these heavy duty drapes, they are definitely meant for a stately home or mansion.

You get a hud of 7 rich textures and 2 colours for the pelmet, one click to open and close, editable and only 3 prims and 1Ld.

I also added this cute set to my basket as well and I wasn’t disappointed.

This is a “Valentine” tray but really it could be an anytime tray.  For 9Lds you get the tray and 2 bunny ear bags.  I’m not sure how you add to the note but someone who has smarts will probably work it out lol.

The other bag has bunnies on it as is just as cute but 2 of them rezzed made the table look even more cluttered so I just stuck to this one.  My one small moan is that they’re described as “Mod” but I couldn’t.  I’d have removed the bunny ears and then maybe shrunk the bags down just a tad, not much as they’re not enormous but just a little.  It’s really a small moan because other than that I love em.

If you don’t like this shade then there are other ones for sale for just 9Lds or you can buy one of the bags for just 5Lds.  My one moan is it says “mod” but I can’t otherwise I’d have loved to remove the bunny ears and shrink them down just a little but really they’re delightful and I have no regrets.

I then TPed to the inworld shop and remembered it before my body has rezzed.  I did a quick run to the new department and before I bought it I spotted another freaking adorable 10Ld offer, not on the MP shop, of a teardrop cushion with a bow and before I splashed more cash I logged out to do this post.
