Beep Beep Beep…Delivery.(Freebie).

I will confess that although I’m being pretty strict and keeping to my rule of 500Lds only I am making a sneaky “buy” list for things I want I really want but can’t afford and so next month I will be returning to B-Made to buy something I’ve seen in the shop and until then this freebie is going to keep me happy.

Free to join and then pay a Linden and get a Linden back.

Although I’m sat on it in a driving pose it’s static, which is pretty good as I crash everything.

The B-Made shop is I think a more recent shop to SL and not particularly big and yet I’ve already bought 4 things from this shop and now have a 5th item earmarked for a later date.

Use my LM even if you already have it because B-Made has moved to a pretty darn wonderful Desert sim and it’s the perfect backdrop for some pictures.  Just up the hill is also the latest round of Salon 52 and there are other shops on this sim but I’m logging out.

UPDATE. I thought the issue with landing in the middle of the Canyon/river was just me but it looks like it’s the same for Faith so I’ve been TPing in and out of SL for way too much time this morning.  I’ve dropped the owner of B-Made a note about it. However, I’ve managed to get a better LM and although you still end up in the canyon/river you will see ahead of you a path leading from the river to the doorway of the B-Made shop….I promise nothing though but again just use the Salon 52 link and it’s just down the road from there.

I have a problem.(Freebie & Sale Info).

Can you see my problem?

In the middle of this picture, you will just be able to make out 3 delicate Japanese Maple trees.

On our very leafy/green sim I struggled to find a place where these 2 primmed slender trees would stand out their best so in the end I slapped them down and snapped.  In the second picture I have tried to use a blank background so you can see how delicate these Japanese Maples are.  Ignore that “line” around the leaves as that’s only because I’ve done an extreme close up and this isn’t seen inworld.

As mentioned only 2 prims and these tree’s really lending themselves to courtyards, small gardens, entrances etc and not our clutter packed sim.

50% SALE TIME@Floorplan & Brocante.

Chances are you’ve already got a notice for this big sale but just in case you haven’t here it is.  I will admit I didn’t walk into the shopping area but I did do a quick cam and my heart skipped a beat as there was a couple of things I’d really like but then I did the sensible thing and typed “Floorplan” and Brocante” into my invent and sod that I already most of what I would buy in any case so I’m glad I checked.

PS.  This sale goes on till the 9th.

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;-)
