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 ❤

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.

Saturday Freebies

Dysfunctional Designs freebie table & mirror, candle set Free dress by Earth Mart

A heap of gifts to start your Saturday off the right way. One store I always enjoy visiting is Dysfunctional Designs, it’s just got such a whopping selection of home & harden goodies, I tend to spend at least an hour just mooching – and havent come away empty-handed ever ! Nearby the landing point is a stash of gifts – the group is free to join btw. I grabbed up this handy dandy mesh table (only 1 Li) the cloth is tintable so you can fiddle with it, I’m showing it how it comes. The mirror is also a gift, you get two, gold & silver. The candles are actually on sale at the moment in the atooly Fall event. Tiny event but packed with treats ! In the candelabra box you get the set that sits on a table or ledge PLUS a set for the wall – I think I paid 95L – it’s all a bit hazy after my rampage through stores the last few days! My dress is also a free gift, its by Earth Mart and I found it when I was following a link from Virtual Vagabonds for a free donkey ! (yes, grab the donkey too she’s awfully sweet) Group is free to join and you will find the dress right by the landing point.
