It’s BananaN’s!(Freebies ‘n’Dollarbies).

Not sure whats more pleasing, finding a tube of Pringles in your cupboards or some decent things on the Marketplace.

First Dollarbie are these “Mad Hatter” table sets.  You get 5 colours and each piece is only 1 prim.

These bunnies are FREE and adorable.  I put them on one of the Mad Hatter tables but I don’t think the colour contrast does them justice, they should be in pastel, froo froo bedrooms or home.  Just behind them, you will just be able to make out the delivery box which is a nice shape and a prim so for those, me, who like to use boxes as scattered decor items the delivery boxes these items come in work well for that.

And yes EDITABLE! so I’ve Took away the flowers which will make a lovely decor item on its own and you can shrink or grow the vase and of course, add your own flowers if you wish.

Yup this is as random as it gets LOL.  A little cardboard box cafe.  It doesn’t come with the little critter you see in the picture but there is a little mouse dollarbie which you should check out as well and that looks as though it will tuck inside there quite nicely.

This is an another dollarbie but worth so much more.  Washi tape/ribbon on a holder. 1 Prim.

I’m not going to show you the last dollarbie I picked up because the pictures I took of it are complete and utter rubbish but when you check out the link to the BananaN Marketplace shop you will be able to check out all the gifts/dollarbies and 10Lds offers for yourself.

PS I’ve put the link to the inworld shop from the MP shop but I’ve not checked it out yet but of course you might just want to.

Old bag!(Freebie).

OH My poor sore feet, spent yesterday TRAPPED in IKEA oohing and aahing over everything and of course filling the big yellow bag with lots of trinkets n stuff and yassss MEATBALLS for lunch.  The payback is less money to spend this month and feet like raw steak.

Picked this up from the Marketplace and last time I picked up a load of goodies from there it got swallowed up in my invent and I couldn’t find it so this time I logged in before I placed my order and grabbed it straight away.

This is a rotten photo of a really good freebie from DMCreations but I lost all my pictures that I had taken of it so I had to log back in and just take a quick snap and log out.  Serves me right for blogging before I’ve had my porridge!

This is a simple 3 prim weekend bag and the picture the seller uses it shows in in different textures which since I don’t do any sort of mesh editing I don’t know how you do that but this IS a “Full Perm” gift which means you can sell it yourself.  There is are some “TOS” rules but really simple and not unreasonable ones and clearly stated.

Anyhow a nice simple start to the day and I’m off to have my porridge and I’ve already got my eye on some more tasty gifties.

PS Pick the Chinese hair ornament up as well as it’s super pretty.

OH! So just before I shut my Marketplace window I spotted that I picked this up last week and so here it is.

Just a simple pouffe in a knitted texture for a Linden.  This comes with a 4 texture option and you can turn the shadow off/on I actually forgot to check the other shades.  You get this from the DaD MP shop.  I had actually popped over to their inworld shop as I spotted a rather good tennis court which I think would look good on our sim but I didn’t find it in time so I logged off and then later decided to check the MP and found this instead but when time allows me I’m going to have a proper look around for that tennis court.

PS I found the tennis court set and although this comes with a big price tag it’s not an unreasonable one so next time I’m inworld I will check that out because remember….TRY before you BUY lol.

I went to see GOD and was blessed with FREEBIES.

This is GOD. Am I going to Hell for the title of this post?

“Garden Of Dreams” to be exact.  This is a shop that has been in-world for as long as I have so it’s ancient but it’s nice to see that although it’s kept it’s unique approach to builds in SL it has moved on with the times.

I know Faith has a bought a few of their “Dream Scenes” and I also own a couple of the free scenes myself.  OK gonna try to explain this as clearly as poss.

You can buy individual “scenes” such as a ballroom, library, dining room, cave, space, Hell etc and you load your purchases into an installer and using the globes you simply “slip in” to them and chose from the menu which scene you want to go to and not only does this take you to the scene but in fact the scene isn’t permanently set out and as you TP it rezzes around you.  This means that you can change the space around you at one click to suit your mood.  These scenes are primmy but that’s because they come complete with everything you would want to see and use.  If you want to keep your scene out permanently then you can and then, of course, you can add any extra decor item you wish or just remember when you pack away your scene to pack the items you rezzed out before hand.

OK Clear as mud but the best way to understand what I’m blabbing on about is to try it for yourself.  You might just be able to make out the globes in the picture and you want to head for them.

Click on one of them then simply “slip inside” and out of the menu chose which the scene you want to check out and it takes you there.  You have 15 mins to check it out which is more than enough time.  You can then just slip back into the globe and check somewhere else out or return to the shop.

Don’t worry when you “stand” the globe does disappear but you will spot a white glow in the scene and you just click on that and the globe reappears again to take you to the next destination.

If you check out my last post “Sweet Poison” that picture was taken in one of the Scenes and it’s not a flat texture behind me but an extraordinary room.  If like me you’ve not been to GOD for a long time you will be trapped by checking out all the new scenes and a lot of the old classics which have stood up to the test of time.

I also believe that the more “scenes” you purchase then if you contact the management you will get a discount and they will do all the installation work, but I don’t think it’s actually hard to do it yourself but deffo check it out for the discount as they’re not cheap BUT for the quality and uniqueness a bargain.

Now for the FREEBIES cos there is a lot of them.

OK, this one has suffered from the passing of time, it’s a desert skybox.  If I had a Road Runner or a Coyote toy I would have placed them in this scene lol,  I only picked a small handful of the freebies up and that does inc a few more of these scenes which you can just rezz or use the globe.

This freebie in this picture is just the balloons.  If you’ve been over to our sim before then you might recognise this as the landing spot we have set out, of course, you’re free to wander the whole sim but this is a lovely hang out area just for you lot.

Yes, that’s Moi in the bottom right-hand corner.  These balloons are really old gifts but I think these might be updated from the ones I have as I’m sure the older version didn’t have a slow movement to them.  Doesn’t really matter as they’re only a total of 2 prims and I actually like them where they are.

The hay cart and the bales are also freebies.  The cart again suffers from primmage but those bales are more than reasonable and pretty big.  They also come with a menu which inc singles n NOOKIE ones! I also picked up a matching well but I lost that and a new large wood candle stick out of all the giftes.  You will find these on the next level up, look at my first picture and at the lower right corner you can see the stairs that take you to the next level and all the goodies at the back.

Now for the keepers.

Although in this picture I’m just showing you one of the shrubs from a pack of many I’m really pleased with them they all seem to have a very Autumnal tones.  A mix of single and ground cover shrubs and grasses and only a single prim. When we start to change our sims season these will be appearing everywhere.

The whole sim is open to everyone to come and enjoy.  It has been uniquely landscaped and covered with areas of interest and lots of lots of dancing AOs.  So a lovely way to spend a lazy Sunder, check out the shop and the scenes, grab some freebies and then spend time wanding the sim.

PS There is also a lot of sim landscaping for sale in the GOD shop.

Renting a home in Second Life

When Zan said to come over and check this rental sim out I was there in a flash. Not often we see something that so awesome we call each other to see it! So I was sunk about 3 minutes later and had rented the lighthouse above. Yes, we do have our own sim but I often rent places out to blog or just because I really adore the surroundings – this worked on both counts. $400L a week, 200 prims and a sim of gorgeous locations to take photos – whats not to love!

Got busy rezzing out my gear from Dench Designs – love this picnic table and planty type bits and it didn’t make much of a dent in my prim allowance.

This is the central roundabout, so pretty and plenty of places to park your arse and enjoy the view.

When Zan said it had “so many different types of home” to rent she wasnt kidding. Anything from a Lighthouse, a motel, brownstones, cozy little bungalows and more. They all seem to be $400L a week. I didn’t get a group join when I rented but I was able to place my gear. I sent a message to the owner and a few hours later the group tag arrived. I’ve put the rental office landmark below, although I didn’t see a way to teleport to the homes (?) I just walked about and found what I wanted.

I can still look!(Freebie)

Pillows from “Pillow’s” which is the name of this furniture shop. Which leads me on to this simple little set of pillows which is a gift.

It’s the 3 patterned ones in the foreground and for once I didn’t see if I could unlink them LOL.  Just a lovely simple pretty giftie.

Pillows is a shop full of dreamy, drapey, girly bedroom and home decor items and again another shop where you can’t find the same things in any other shop as they’re unique.

I have “yumyum” hair.(freebies n cheapy).

I finally did it and left some of my groups to free up some space and I also decided to check out some of my paid to join groups to see if there are any new GG’s out for me and scored for both the Free and the Paid For groups.

First a vanity shot as I have 2 left feet in RL so in SL I love nothing better to see my AV dance.

OK, first the not so free but at 50Lds to join the !gO group for this dress it’s worth it.

I am really bad at visiting all the groups/shops which I have a paid for membership to grab any new GG’s and so goodness knows how many I’ve missed from the !gO shop but this simple shift dress is gorgeous and as always with the !gO gifts it’s shop quality.

To me !gO is the “Joe Brown” type of clothing, google it, and I love that style.  Unique clothing you will not find anywhere else in SL and even better this stuff doesn’t age because as it gets older it just becomes classic !gO pieces.

I’m not a 100% sure as it has been that long but sometimes a new design is set out and one of the colours is reduced for group members as well.  Anyhow if you have 50Lds to spare then this is a group/shop to join.  To find the Group gift walk straight ahead in the entrance in front of you and it’s to the left above a reception table BUT also where you land is a signpost and you can TP from there to the Discount section and just a quick glance around was enough for me to see a LOT of super stuff at really good bargains and I also spotted that they come with demos so I can guarantee you WILL end up grabbing a load of them to try before you buy.

Freebies now.  (Barbery) Yum Yum is a shop I’ve actually bought hair from as it’s super cute, young, unique etc all the things I love.  There are 2 free hairs both short and cute, the other one I’ve already blogged but a long time ago and so I’m just showing you this one and you can surprise yourself with the other one when you go to the shop.

You only get the 1 shade. if my memory serves me right the other freebie has a choice of 3 light shades but I could be wrong.  The hud also has a simple slider so if you put it on don’t freak if it’s too small or big as you simply slide the slider till it fits.  Yup I got tempted as in the reception area is the hairs which are available at events and there is an adorable wind blown one so I had to TP over to that event and bam it’s mine now.  Thats why I don’t visit some shops as I always get tempted lol.

A nice little extra in the shop Yum Yum shop is some nice cool wearable drinks and spoons.

Even though they come with pretty good holding poses you know me and of course I had to rezz them and they make seriously good decor items and even with all the detailing they’re still just 1 prim.

PS The shop is called Yum yum and the group invite is next to the gifts in the entrance but the group name is “Double Paradox” just in case you get confused as to why you’re getting sent a group invite for a different name.
