I treated myself. (90Lds).

My part of the sim is a bit like a mini farm and of course, every farm needs a dirty old tractor.

Even though I already have a tractor this beauty is only 90Lds (I might have to double-check it but I’m about 99% sure it was 90 and 100% sure it was under 100Lds) and only 7 prims so it was a no brainer for me.  It does come with some rather good poses ie repairing it, driving (although this is not a drivable item).

This is a B-Made item.  This is a shop you may remember me mentioning because although as yet it’s not a massive shop I think I’ve managed to purchase most of whats on sale and I’d actually called in just to see if there was anything new to tempt me and as you can see there was.  To get this though you will have to head to the Flourish event, which happens to be on the same stunning sim but it’s easier to use my LM to the event.

My Fave Words, CHEAP, DOLLARBIES, FREEBIES, COPY & MOD!

Faith did a post recently where she found some super freebies/dollabies from the MP and of course since I’m a hoarder and they were fabulous finds I not only grabbed them but I decided to check out the inworld shop called “Old World”.

At the LM there is a whole load of Dollarbies/cheapies/GG’s including these because at only 19Lds I’d say they were a super bargain.

The cat, log basket and plant are all linked and come to 4prims, the plant pots are only I believe 2 prims for the whole lot, and here is the BUTTT…yup copy & mod.

Feel free to skip this last bit esp if you’re not into landscaping etc.

I’d spent so much time wandering around the Old World shop that I didn’t have much time to play with the mod but even simply removing the plants from the pots gave me for 1 prim for each  and some pots to put my own plants in and a nice clump of very seasonal colour flowers to place at random on our sim.  With the cat one I actually only removed the plant, comes in 3 bits and those leaves make a most lovely plant.  Since I had to log out I am going to assume it will be just as easy to separate the cat from the basket.

I will be back to this shop, not today or tomorrow probably not till next year but I have the LM tucked away into a new folder I have where I put places I want to return to at a later date to actually buy something.  The “Old World” shop is geared very much to the RP, Gor, Medival, Rustic style of decor and landscaping but as always although most of it wouldn’t fit into my SL there are some fab pieces.  There is a fab small complete vegetable garden perfect for those with small plots of land or the things I really want is the broken down truck with soil and plants growing in the bed of the truck.  They do come with a price tag but I don’t mind getting spendy when it comes to decor/landscaping.  The only reason I didn’t pick them up now is that my invent will eat it.  Things go into my invent and I never see them again, it’s like a Blackhole of doom!  So if I bought them now in a week or so they will have vanished and come next season when I really could use them I’d either forgotten about them or wouldn’t be able to find them.  So it’s better just to earmark them for future purchase rather than take the risk.

Now I’m inworld LM grabbing I’ve checked and the group is only 10Lds to join and between all the Dollarbies and the GG’s you will find loads BUT I also remembered that if you walk around this shop you will see a small building with a sale sign on it and inside are some really cheap bargains.

PS.  But of course you can leave the things as they come, you know I love to rip things apart but I will be keeping those plant pots together as a little group.

Old MacDonald had a 510 plot of SL land.(freebie).

It’s my OH’s day off so it’s my SL day off except I’m an addict so here is a piece of randomness.

As always found this though a notice from one of my free group and as you can see from the pose balls this tractor and scenery is actually a pose prop. The shop it comes from is actually new to me which isn’t surprising as I really now try to avoid pose/prop shops as I may just use a handful of favourites but I swear in my invent I have thousands of poses, props etc! I’m hyperventilating just thinking about them all.  So I grabbed and ran.

Sorry can’t remember the total prim count but it was only something like 22 for the whole lot, grass, sheep etc and I know what you’re thinking “I’m not a blogger so what use is this to me?”  As always I clicked and checked and totally editable and so check out this stripped down version.

I got rid of all the extras, which even for those with basic editing skills was so simple and if you don’t know how to unlink etc then this is a good item to practice on.  Taken in my sims setting so you can see it in all it’s glory, exc texturing and a fantastic prop for any land you may have or even to use as a prop.

LM grabbing and I spotted that the second Group gift is a piano with the same sort of pose balls.  To find both GG’s turn to your right when you go in.

The Farm (The Challenge)

The Challenge - 22769 bauwerk & barn

A new round of The Challenge has begun and it’s really a fantastic theme this time. “Farm” is the theme and I’ve got some great garden type treats to share with you . Above is the Farm shed from Black Tulip, 100% original mesh and really low prim (uhm 27 I think) The doors open to reveal a spacious interior, so plenty of room to fill up with your gardening and ground work gear.

The Challenge - 22769 bauwerk - cleo designs

22769 have some adorable vege beds to scatter around, cabbages, carrots, beetroots & lettuce plus an empty one incase you’ve got your own vegetables. Just 2Li and so realistic – I know I will be using these in my SL garden for sure! Little teaser above of the huge amount of pieces from Cleo Designs. I adore the little tray, probably because I just LOVE french cheese.

The Challenge - Cleo Design

Cleo Designs has released this collection for your garden / farm. The bench is super comfy and ever so pretty with its casually tossed blanket over the back and plump cushions to rest upon. There is also a hen-house with chickens, couple outside that are not linked so you can place them wherever you wish, and some inside with a nest of cracked eggs. There’s baskets of fruit, freshly collected eggs in a tin carrier and of course a small cold-frame with some plants getting ready to be planted outside.

The Challenge - Percent  Makeshift sink - animated !

Last but certainly not least is the “makeshift sink” by %Percent. Its simply gorgeous to look at, and its also animated yay! Lovely poses to wash your hands from a days hard graft in the garden plus others. The tap works and also drip drip drips, nice touch is the dripping sound – dead cute. Li of 9 and soft linked – which means you can mess around with the parts and position them as you please.

Funny Farm

A whole new freaky/fairy/fantasy in a rezzer.

ScanSL was Lag Hell so decided to Marketplace surf and when I spotted this at first I didn’t believe that for a basic 100Lds you could get so much for so little!  Love being proven wrong.

Scan1A fairy fantasy land, or whatever floats your boat LOL.  Thank goodness this comes in a rezzer because if you had to unpack it all you would give up but one click of the rezzer and it’s all there for you.  Rainbow, clouds, fields, animal pens, swing, house, flowers and on and on.

Scan11A lovely hobbit type tree house and I did notice the swing has an adult menu in it but I didn’t try that out…HONEST!

Scan1111This is one of the animal homes in the pens.  Big enough for a grown AV to sulk in.

Scan11111You can see from where I am that this home is roomy enough to take all the furniture you will need, as if you won’t be spending all your time outside in the wonderful farm.

Scan6Last photo and this is the money shot.  Taken at midday so you can see that even if you can’t or don’t like Windlight this is still a vivid and imaginative place to live. When you’re on the ground your surrounded by hills and plants and feel nestled inside your own farm.  A big 164 Prims and as you can see it’s a lot of land but it’s still perfect even for those on a prim limit because you need to add so little to this to make it your fantasy farm. A few basic bits of furniture and a few fluffy animals and you’re good to go. Fortunately you don’t have to take my word for it because you will see on the MP shop lots of people have left glowing reviews of not only this but  other sky homes/farms.

Get used to this place and the other skyhomes, farms and boxes that I am just about to buy because I can see myself using these a lot for my photos.
