I’ve lost the will to write a pithy headline so here is one word which sums it up FREEBIES!

“Imp” as I think of her, one of my SL friends dropped me a note about a Freebie in the Kaya shop.  There is a NEW Freebie which is a garden set but I’m reblogging this as this is more my style.

This one is a couple of years ago and it’s as good now as then, it’s just the right size for any plot of land.  Not primmy at all, I think it’s only about 7prims, and although I didn’t play with it this time I am pretty sure it’s editable..if you wanted to but I can’t see any reason why you would want to.

The Kaya shop is a bit like the Poundland/Dollar store of SL in that everything is the one price and that’s 50Lds.  For only 50Lds  you can own everything from a massive mansion to a street scene.  What you see in the picture generally is what you get so you can end up with a lot more than what you expected.  I’ve spotted something among the new stuff on the back wall which is tempting me but then again I already own a lot of the Maya builds and I never really use them but it’s tempting!

The New GG’s in in the middle of the reception so you can see what it’s like, it’s a chair/table and plant set and you will find this and the older GG’s on the wall just to your left.

Now for FREE ICE CREAM! If only!

I went from Maya’s straight over to Andika’s just for this ice cream dispenser set. Just another great free Group gift.  I took a little walk around the Andika shop as it’s not too big and spotted that the old Group Gifts end up for sale because they’re quality items so to have the chance to get them for free before they end up with a price tag is pretty generous.

PS.  Don’t worry if the LM looks as though it’s going to take you to the D-Lab shop as it’s simply on the same sim.  Word of warning though, DO NOT check out the poses or it will hurt your Linden bank balance!

Ribbit.(Freebies, not the toad though).

I’d popped into an old LM and it took me to a very small shop with a limited amount of Gacha’s and it was there I had previously won the toad you can see in the picture.  I’d forgotten that if you click the picture you get a free lily and lily pad sent to you so you can give your new pet a home.

The toad, if you’re curious, is called a “Surinam Toad” and if you don’t suffer from Trypophobia you will if you google or even better check out youtube and see what’s unique about this unique creature.

The flower is more of a creamy white than the colour shown but it’s stunning and would look just as good as a piece of decor in your home.  So in the pack you get 2 pads and this flower for free.

NO REGRETS! (Freebie).

Does this look familiar?

Yup this is the same wild grassed path that I blogged just yesterday.

I’ve moved the whole thing over to a cleared plot of land so you can see the full linked sized version.  It comes to 38Prims in total but it’s totally editable and unlike what I showed you yesterday this one is FREE!!!!

So am I P*SSED OFF that I’d only just bought this yesterday for 225LDs?  NOPE, not at all.  We all know that 70% or more of what is sold in SL is enterprising people buying full perm kits and creating their own range.  Chances are it’s those who make full perm kits for others who make the most money in SL just like it’s the people who write the songs we love are the ones who make more money than the stars who sing the songs.  So I don’t regret spending that 225Ld and only now getting the same thing but for free because it just happens sometimes.

PS. A couple of fun wearables AND a 250 Gift Card.

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 Christmas Classic.(Freebies).

The “Candy Lane Christmas Market” has literally just opened but I think it’s not fully stocked yet, or my computer was on a go slow as it sometimes seems to do that, so go now for this super freebie and earmark it for a return visit.

I had literally just dropped Faith a note saying I wasn’t going to start decorating my house as it’s just too damned early but these have warmed the cockles of my scroogy heart and they’re going to stay out.  It helps that even at their enormous size they’re only 3 prims each.

Again a really nice sized event, easy to navigate, freebies ‘n’ cheapies and lots of Christmas Tat to be bought.

UPDATE cos I’m fact-checking.  These Nutcrackers are on the “Never Totally Dead” stall, as well as a discounted super grimy/grinchy/humbuggy disused old toy factory and I, was tempted to buy but it wasn’t on the demo platform so I decided against but coincidentally the first LM I got for the “Never Totally Dead” shop actually took me to the toy factory so if you want to check that out for yourself.  It does come with a price tag, under 300Lds, but a great home or backdrop if you want to show you disproval of all things Christmassy.

I actually know this shop reasonably well as I’ve made a few purchases from here and also shown you the group gifts. There is a hunt going on at the moment which I sucked at but there is a hint and outside is also candy canes pointing to the way…and yet I still couldn’t find it!

PS. Please try not to break anything as you’re walking through;-)

IT’S MY DAY OFF FLUCKERS! (Cheapie ‘n’ Freebie).

Yes it is my day off and I’ve scraped the worst of the mess up, put the bin out for the bin men, fed the cats, turned up the fire, got a pile of snacks and mug of coffee and I’m settled for the day.

First is the “cheapie” which is just this skirt BUT the jumper is, of course, the same one in from my last post and I simply chose one of the many plain colours options you get in the hud.  When I was at the SWANK event I spotted the rows of Gachas and some of them were for a shop called “OA-M.E.O” and I have no idea of what that stands for.  The Gacha’s actually have some really interesting decor and clothing items in them but I resisted them and decided to pop over to the shop…yes to see if there were freebies of course.

The OA-M.E.O group does cost 20Lds to join but there is a mix of gifts for women/men and some decor item and just in case you miss it the vase with the purple flowers is also a gift. It was just this skirt which piqued my interest and in particular this very bright and pretty pattern.  As it happens I didn’t spot that you do get a hud and I can’t remember the colours so my best guess is it has 3 plain and 3 patterns in the hud.  Will I keep it?  I don’t know, do I regret paying the 20Lds? Hell no and even though it was just the 1 gift I picked up I am pleased with it but sometimes I don’t keep something not because I don’t like it but because I already have enough of a similar style so just don’t need it and that’s the case for this skirt.

A lovely heads up from Kiylee sent me to Kraftwork because they have a very interesting new GG of a backdrop which she knew I would love, and I do but this isn’t it lol.

This is set out with the other Group Gifts which a lot of you will have seen before, all of them are decor items, and of course the new one and this one which is new to me.

FYI, all of my pictures inc the skirt were just taken in the sims setting.  This is such a rich dark wood and those lights do set of a lovely warming glow and when I want a Classy AF backdrop this will be it BUT it’s not actually a backdrop as such.

Just for a giggle and because it’s editable I made a copy and shrunk it right down to tabletop size so you can see that all sides have been “stoned”.  This is because it is mainly intended as a landscaping item.  I can’t remember what it’s called but it’s something like “garden nook”.  In the picture used to show it off, there are chairs, plants, and other decor items to make this a nice and yes different outdoor room.  We don’t normally get a very formal looking wood used for garden rooms.  Full-sized it’s only 9prims and although you can shrink it down to a tabletop size I think the lowest prims is 6 both big and small are small enough in prims in any case.

Unashamedly old.(Freebies).

Simply Shelby is a fab shop and even better there are lots of special weekly offers such as 25Ld Tue, 36Ld Sat etc and FREEEEEEBIES!

Since I picked up this wreath, years ago now, I’ve always had it out somewhere in my home because it’s STUNNING!  I promise you I haven’t edited this picture I just zoomed and clicked and here it is in all its glory and with different windlight settings it looks again amazing.  For all of that only 2 prims!

So as I mentioned in an earlier post I was doing this weeks 25Ld Tue and when I get that list there is a few shops which I TPed to first and do the rest later if I have more time and Simply Shelby is one of the first shops I visit but this time I went straight to the GG’s and not only is this one out but actually an awful lot of FREE plants and landscaping.  There is a whole wintery/snowy scene, vases full of plants etc and guess what?  EDITABLE! So yes you know exactly what I’m going to be doing as soon as I get in, ripping them apart.

Use my LM as Simply Shelby has now moved and then use the TP to go to the Gacha/Vip etc area I am off to the Winter area rubbing my little AV hands with glee.
