More, more & more. (Freebies).

Before I settled down to work through my Raindale stuff I decided I should check the shop out and was happy to see a lot of old and probably new group gifts.

The tent is of course an old freebie which I can imagine everyone has in their invent. Next to it is an arch way made up of twisted branches, new? I’m not too sure. You get 4 versions in total, basically with or without snow and with or without lights.

I definately remember the teapot with flowers, maybe even the cake what I don’t remember is that plate of “Lembas”.

I was so curious as to what exactly “Lembas” is I googled it and it turns out that Lembas is the name given to the bread baked by the Elves in Toklens Lord of the Rings book. I’ve never read the book, watched the film or intend on reading/watching Lord of the Rings so all I know is that one click on the plate and you get a quality slice of Lembas sent to you to wear.

There are quite a lot of other gifts now at the Raindale shop inc some Christmas themed ones so check them out now.

PS. I may never read Lord of the Rings but I whole heartedly suggest you read To Kill a Mocking Bird, it exceeded my expectations.

Death Flowers. (Freebie).

I could be wrong but aren’t Calla Lillies traditionally used in funeral wreaths and or bridal bouquets?…I feel the need to Google it.

Looks like I may be right as on the one hand it says it’s “the most common meaning for Calla lilies is purity, holiness, and faithfulness” and “In addition to these beautiful meanings, the lily also often features in funerals because it also symbolises transience and death. It is an excellent mourning flower”.  

You learn something new every day.

This is a lovely and very classy simple glass vase with the waxy flowers. Only 3 prims and it does come with a resizing menu.  I did try that out and you can increase it by 100% and it made for a very substantial sized plant and then I shrunk it right down so it would be a neat little size to fit on any shelf.  The prims stayed the same at all sizes, just 3 prims.

I picked this up from CJ Creations.  I’ve blogged this garden shop a few times, it has the most excellent oversized stuffed planters/urns and pre-made little garden scenes.  I was looking to see if any Autumnal scenes are starting to come onto the market, yes there is, and of course grab any freebies.

Today I’m going to “Stay at home club” allllll day.(Freebie(sssssssss).

As that list of amazing “The stay at home club” gifts grows I’ve seen so many new things I really want so today I’m going to hop from shop to shop grabbing the goodies and as I go on my travels I will be checking the shops for any other freebies/discounts and maybe even treating myself along the way if I find something I can use in my SL life.

My first “The stay at home club” visit was the Xclusive shop.  As someone who doesn’t really need any menu-driven furniture/decor apart from the standard sit poses the Xclusive shop isn’t one I visit. I do know the name pretty well as this brand has been a big shop in SL for as long as I can remember.

I went for the pool and walked away with so much so as they have been so generous with their (TSAHC) gifts and for me, the icing on the cake is that the 3 scenes I unpacked all turned out to be MODABLE…Oh Hell YES!  This particular scene with the tree, well and the weed/flower-covered cobbles is just such a lovely example of what’s on offer.  I’ve already taken this one apart and repurposed the bits I want.

Do this with caution as in this case this is a non-copy item so once you’ve ripped it apart you will struggle to put it back together as it is, unless you return to the shop and pick up another copy of it.

However, it has to be said that this and the other scenes I rezzed are perfectly designed to be just rezzed and left alone.  Considering the detailing of the builds the prims are more than reasonable so for those who aren’t into creating their own little plots of heaven to be able to just rezz a perfect build makes their lives so much more easier and of course so easy to change! If you get sick of one scene a click removes the whole thing ready for a fresh new design to be rezzed.

BTW I did rezz the pool and not only was I more than impressed with that the AO’s in the floaties are so well done

It’s not easy being a Cheap B*tch! (Freebie(s)).

I think like a lot of us over the coming weeks/months  I will have to penny-pinch like I’ve never pinched before!  I’ve even put the idea of buying the “itty bitty pert titty” mesh body that legacy has come out with off for a while….till I cave in! Then like a fool, I decided to pop into the Dust Bunny shop and as soon as I saw one item I totally regretted and now there is another thing on my “buy” list.

Last stop was to check out the CJ Gardens shop and yes I’ve added something to my “Buy” list but I was also happy to see NEW Group Gifts.

Which are these planters. I’m a bit confused as you get what looks like 3, linked, gifts but all 3 are the same unless I was missing something.

You will find this in the large greenhouse.  If you’re slightly interested in what is tempting me it’s that Frog Pond in the main room.  I even went to the Swank Event where it’s actually on sale and although the price is more than reasonable because I’m not 100% sure it can blend into our sim setting I think I will just add it to my “buy” list and have a think about it.

Although a lot of the CJ Creations stock is premade little setups there are a lot of single items.  The over stuffed planters are really stunning statement pieces, the little pre-made scenes are so reasonably primmed when you see how much detailing has been put into them or like me when I return I’m going to grab myself the big fat blousy poppies to use on our sim as they are within my Cheap B* budget.

Warning, Warning, Boring, It’s a Reblog.(Freebie).

Can I just say that THANK YOU to anyone who drops us a note with the info on something you think we will be interested in.  Most of the time it’s something that definitely has us running to get it but sometimes we remember blogging it or didn’t blog it for some reason but it doesn’t matter because ALL “heads up” are greatly appreciated and that brings me back to “Sparks” as she’s copy and pasted some details sent out by Trompe Loeil team.

You will remember this free house from just a few posts ago and the reason I’m using again is because it’s still there, as well as a chair, but the Trompe Loeil team have come to a decision to put out regular freebies for us and I do believe that a few of them will be like this top-class house actual big builds! So it’s there now but when I log in it may have changed but I for one have now added the Trompe shop to my daily visit list as to get freebies from this shop just makes my SL day.

OH and if you’ve never rented in SL maybe this is the time to do it, even this home can be rezzed on one of the smallest plots of land leaving you with enough prims to decor inside and out.

PS.  They’re on the pillar to the right of the door entrance and both gifts are set at 0Lds.

Stress free gardening. (Freebie).

Yes, I am stood back on the Two Moon Gardens waiting for some good luck on the Lucky Board and that’s how I spotted a NEW Group Gift.

A pile of rocks softened and blended by all the flowers and grasses.

This is it from the other side, NOT everything in this picture is inc, the rough textured path is mine and a couple of random flowers etc are in this picture.  This is an area of our sim which needs to be worked on but looking at this new freebie from Two Moon Gardens has given me a really good idea of what to do.

PS.  I’ve not shown you them but there are also 2 lots of very pretty grass group gifts at the LM as well as a Lucky Board, a weekly 99Ld offer, an auction board and 2 mini MM sorta boards.

It’s summer somewhere in SL. (Garden, Home, Freebies).

Again it was a free gift from an event which got me over to the Quality Gardens shop.  I did see something I wanted to buy but it was just part of a set and priced accordingly so I didn’t get it.

The Quality Garden’s shop specialises in premade little scenes, and some individual items so for those of you who only have small plots or limited time and even limited F**k’s to give when it comes to landscaping these sorts of premade scenes are perfect.  There is a fence and tree set which I thought was particularly good so if you wanted your little plot of land to be fenced in and softened with trees, plants etc and no skill needed to set it up check this place out.

This picture is of 3 gifts, each set consists of pots and plants. One of the gifts is in front of the Christmas Tree and the other two are for the Quality Garden group and I think it was Third Life Group which I have to say is another one of those free groups which is pretty darn active so if you have space to spare stay in it.
