Upgrade your living space – Dollarbies

Found a new-to-me designer called The Tinsmith. Grabbed up these two gorgeous skyhomes , at just $1 why not! This home is only 20Li – let that just sink in for a moment. Yes 20Li, two floors, little reading nook, lighting, 100% mesh.

The textures are very sleek and modern and would lend to some great interior design. Light and airy fresh and bright.

In contrast is this sky home from the same designer with light wooden floors, wooden beams in the living space and 3 spacious bedrooms !

This one is only 29Li complete. The bedrooms are great sizes, or perhaps use one as a bathroom? I was mentally working out where I would place my gear as I walked round – so pretty and warm. The Tinsmith has just six homes for sale and all are $1L .

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.

Freebies Part 1.

What a great start to a much colder Monday morning.

Trompe Loeil has their NEW FREE FOR ALL out and yet again another top quality build just for us.

Again as always there is as much detail on the back of this build as the front, those doors are sliding doors such a nice touch.  Can you see the seats/shelves built into the side emmm bits..not sure what to call them?

This middle staircase neatly breaks up the large lower room and although I’m not showing you there is a nice fireplace as well.

Upstairs is a very useable platform with tons of space for a bedroom and even a bath etc.

As for this chair/stool set WOW not just keepers but I’m now wondering where I can squeeze these into my home. I think the name of this style is “Modern Danish” and it’s a style I actually love in RL but have you seen the price! Never mind at least I can own this even if it’s in SL lol.  Looking at the picture of this set on Flickr it looks like you can change the colour but it doesn’t matter if you can’t as I personally love this colour.

I’ve left this lot out because the house is I think 51prims and the chair 5, stool 2 so hardly prim eating.

Tatty old shed. (Dollarbie).

This is definitely NOT a “Tatty old shed” in fact it’s rather a decent build so much so I may just use it on my part of the sim instead of a greenhouse.

If you look at the bottom right of this picture you will see a shrub which is included and also those purple and orange flowers.

These flowers trailing around the door are such excellent quality I have everything crossed that I can repurpose them as YESSS Editable!  So you know that when I log back in I’m going to be tearing it apart prim by prim.

And even better since it’s also copyable it means I don’t have to sacrifice this really good build.

PS.  This gift is standing next to the Hisa shop and inside is another Group Gift of lanterns.

UPDATE: Wowzer, so I had a bit of a flyby to check out a building I spotted and I am most impressed with the few homes that are for sale on the sim.  Nice fresh designs, excellent texturing and OMG the prims are so unbelievably reasonable.  Check out the “Forest Retreat” near to the LM, all of that and a “bag of chips” for 34 prims!  I was so interested in how much this build costs I tried to TP to the Shiny Shabby event where it’s for sale but I couldn’t get in because I don’t think it’s open to us as of yet.

This is a BRAND new shop to SL but whoever is behind the label must be an SL old-timer as to hit the market with such great builds is someone who knows their stuff.  This is a shop I can see growing big in SL.

Trust me it’s monday, I know because Alexa told me it was monday. (Freebie).

Onsu has sent out as a subscribers gift a skybox.

It has one large area which at first made me think it was more like a large shop than a home but on further wandering through it nope this is definitely very homelike.

There is even two sets of staircases and various rooms that can be turned into bedroom, bathroom, slave room etc.

I know that you also get a version with or without an outside surround plus I think some texturing options in a hud.

In all honesty, since this was just under 100prims, I slapped it down on Faiths platform, took a few piccies and then picked it up again before she came inworld and wondered WTF had all the prims gone lol.

I did a quick TP over to the Onsu shop and yup just click the sub board and this home is yours for totally free.

Do you wanna Adult or PG? (Freebie(s)).

I’m still looking for a couple of items to complete out new sim but until I find them I have no idea of what they are and where they are but as I wandered around the Merak shop I spotted a NEW freebie.

Sorry I totally forgot to zoom out and take a full-length picture of this bed as I was so impressed with the folds, wrinkles and shading of this quality gift.

You get a choice of beds, Adult or PG obviously from the title.  I’ve obviously rezzed the PG one lol. The part of the bed you can’t see is a simple design over that over cover extends over the bed and lays on the floor.

Click on the cover and you get a small selection of colours of the cover and click on the pillow to change the wording. Only 15prims.

I have to show you my milkshakes which is the only pose with a wearable you get in the bed, or at least in the PC bed. Such a nice touch a pink milkshake with a simple and useable pose!

As mentioned this is a NEW GG except I’m not in the group, I just clicked the easel with the picture of this on it and it was sent to me.  The Merak Group is free to join and there are other gifts, previously blogged.

PS. The last item I blogged from this shop was a lovely sofa so if you need one you now know where to get one.

I knew it! (Freebies).

Before I’d even rezzed properly I knew from the crowd of people that Trompe Loeil has it’s NEW freebies out for us.

The dark green and reddish brown woodwork all hint of snuggling down at Christmas.

A nice large deck both at the front and the back of this building. These 2 seats are also set out as freebies for us.  You can see a difference in the cushion texture because you do get a menu to change.  I didn’t try out the different colours but I think they’re all plaid….I happen to love plaid.

This is the front of the house from inside so you can just seem more of the detailing plus the control panel.

This is a lovely feature window downstairs and you can just make out the bottom of the staircase which heads up to a sleeping platform. 

I’ve just spotted that you can see on the other side of this build is another feature window.  I can’t remember the exact prims but I’m sure it was around the 69 count which for the attention of detailing is amazing.

Actually just getting these freebies is amazing.  I don’t know how long the team at Trompe Loeil will keep on giving but until they decide enough is enough I will keep on grabbing because builds of this quality don’t come along often.
