It turns out the struggle is real! (Freebie(S)& Sim Status Update).

I know I promised you close up pictures of the !g0 hat I’ve been going on about but can I get a decent shot of that hair/hat from !g0 in my last post so I did the “The Good Egg Hunt” instead.

OH Boy, it looks as though this hunt was worth the TPing, crashing, TPing, Crashing, TPing and DAMNIT more crashing so I was just about to throw the towel in and do a complete clean reinstall of the updated Firestorm when a “Status update” went out.  Turns out SL/Firestorm isn’t just picking on me but a lot of people are having the same issue and it’s not just Firestorm it’s all the servers.  So DON’T PANIC as the Nerds have been alerted and are working on the probs right now.

This top and skirt are the first freebies I opened and I opened these first because I knew they were clothes and I knew that each of the hidden eggs contains part of this outfit.  So although you can’t see it I am wearing matching shoes and there is a wearable bag but I wanted to concentrate on just the skirt and top which is really nice with lots of fits a bright and bold colour/texture and comes as separates.

To do this hunt you click the sign and get sent a wearable basket, I don’t think you need to actually wear it though, and a Hud which will TPs you to all of the shops involved and there are oodles of eggs to collect.  Most shops seem to have 3-4 eggs out as standard, in some shops, I picked up their shop freebies as well etc and so as you can imagine I have a whole folder to sit quietly and work my way through.

I’ve just spotted that I’ve missed out two shops on the list, Entice which is the starting LM and %percent which is a shop I’ve got a few unique things from so I’m going to brave the TP just to check those out when I log back in.

Olive here

Found this little beaut of a mesh house on the market place by elfico penso to share with you. “Olive Cottage” sounds a small space but is actually pretty big. If you peer closely you’ll see the little basement windows around the bottom – bloomin brill as this house comes with a built-right-in basement! Here’s the deets: 4 rooms, a balcony and a basement! You can paint the walls as you like. Length: 14m Width: 14m
Prims: 35
100% mesh

Lovely detailing for a dollarbie build, the doors are especially nice and are followed through the whole place. Touch the basement door to go down a ladder and you’ll find a full house size area – what to dooooo with it ! Well made staircase takes you to the upper level with an added small exterior balcony to enjoy. Top notch !

Moving on – $1L home !

I was dead chuffed to find this gift from Simple things & Forever summer today. Not everyone in Second Life changes their decor and surroundings when the seasons change – in fact for almost 8 years I lived on a tropical island year round (which is prolly why I have such an aversion to them now !) This is the “Trudy Tropical Island House”, its dead pretty and includes the patio, pool and all the trees and plants. You could use this straight outta the box as is – or play around with it.

You receive two versions one with everything and one with just the house – and beware none of it is in a rez box – so rez it in edit mode.

“The Trudy Tropical Island House is an open-spaced wooden house on stilts with 2 bedrooms. It sits on a man-made island with a swimming-pool. It has a spacious front balcony and extra-living area below the house. The house itself is 43 land impact and 22×26. The area for the ‘island’ and boulders is 36×43. The landscaping and pool are 90 land impact.”

It’s so low prim for what it is, Id use the whole thing and decorate – it’s no modify sadly but hey ho – what a find! The interior is nicely done with some shadowing and great wood textures. Limited time offer so grab it while you can. Check out the market place store while youre there – some other great builds for just $10L.

A non tiny, tiny home ‘n’ stuff. (Freebies).

I love it when I just go wandering and then stumble on a really lovely freebie.

The shop is one I know, ChiMia, I did a quick search in my invent and have things from here either bought or picked up as freebies from many events but I’ve not seen this cabin before.  It’s actually a decent size with stunning texturing inside and out, it’s even got gutters and a covered porch which I’m not showing you because I’ve just slapped it down on my platform and it’s not going to show it off at it’s best.  Only 59(ish) prims.

Perfect timing for this little wrapping set.  Only 1 prim, perfectly proportioned and when I TP home I will be rezzing this under the Christmas tree….it’s rezzed now.  The lamp is the last gift and I did take a nicer picture of it but that picture didn’t capture the nice and light glow this one gives off while you can see it in this picture.

The ChiMia group is a VIP one but that doesn’t mean you have to pay to join, you will have to pay 1Ld to “buy” each gift.  So when clicking on the gifts make sure to wear your VIP tag and click on the 1Ld payment option and not the full price option.  Fortunately for me since all I have left to my name is 3Lds and I’m not buying any more Lindens till after Christmas you get your 1Ld back so I’m still in SL credit lol.

PS.  A little bit further on from the LM there are also Lucky Chairs.

Free House

I went to Salome Design last night to take a look at a few pieces for our Roman style pool – and ended up with a couple of really lovely gifts. The group is free to join btw. On one wall there are two rows of jars – each one contains a gift! This is my absolute fav – the house on a rock – dead handy if you have uneven mainland or a corner area where you can’t think what to do with.

The whole thing is just 30 prims and the textures are so lovely inside and out. The interior is beautifully done with the reverse of the windows having this keyhole lattice design with wooden beading – gorgeous!

Free things to cheer your day (with non free action also!)

I blogged this super new dress “Dre” from Neve the other day, it’s currently out at the Uber event. I showed you the more casual version, same dress now but the dressier style with sparkly bits! Found this dead cute pair of heels for just $1L on the Market Place – Slink only – by Ferina. Love the tassel detail at the front. The hallway I’m standing in is also a great find ! It’s by Arduenn Schwartzman, he has a whole heap of goodies from $0 – $10L in his MP store and also inworld. The skybox is full perm, great as a prop or a skybox to fool around in , it’s also full perm so if you wanna fiddle with it you can yay!

Close up call for the shooooz ! Gorgeous huh? Get grabbing ! My hair is a brilliant FREEBIE from Olive, one of my fav hair creators. Olive has an end of summer sale on at the moment, $138L per hair – do!! However, as I almost own every.single.style already – I looked at the Lucky boards et voila the F came up and I won this – dead chuffed. Eight boards in total so you’re bound to get lucky.
