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.

Well I never, quickie.(Freebies).

I was rummaging in my invent, binning this n that and tucking things away and I came across a folder of plants I previously blogged but in that folder from the same shop was also 2 boxes of “old stuff” and boy am I glad I opened them.

Usually, when stuff is “old” it’s a bit lacking but also they can give you a chuckle however in this box of old stuff I found some very interesting items.I’m just going to show you 1 item and it’s this “Candelabra Wand” and as you can see from my glowing face it’s super bright.  I didn’t rezz a copy to see how many prims it is but laid on a table it will act as a magical lamp or wear it when you’re on a hunt to light your way.  There are 2 other “wands” plus as it happens some Christmassy items TBH I’m just going to leave it to you to unpack have a chuckle, bin what you don’t want but I bet you will keep a few of them.

Don’t worry when you get there and it’s a “Rental Office”.  Lunaria is the name of this rental agency but it’s also a shop so just walk through a couple of rooms and you will find the 2 boxes on the floor in the room which has a lot of Free to join Group Gifts and it’s the plants I’ve previously blogged but there is also clothes and Lucky Boards.

PS. Why the HELL is the whole of the UK blanketed in snow and it don’t even have the slightest dusting of the stuff! I WANT SNOW!

No copying!(Freebie & Bargain).

If I’m correct I think about 80% of the grass we have out on our sim is from SR(Sweet Revolutions) but if I’m wrong the one thing I’m sure of is I own so many of the plants and trees from this shop I could cover our whole sim in just SR landscaping if I wanted to.

I went over there because SR is part of a Hunt but I also knew that I would end up buying something because you just can’t not.  I didn’t actually even start looking for the Hunt prizes as the NEW November group gift was more than enough.

This stunning and massive tree is the freebie and is ONLY 3 prims! As always you have a small plot of land then this will fill it with hardly any impact on your prim allowance or if you have a bigger plot then rezz away.

Again since our sim is still gloriously Autumnal, and yes I checked and so much of the grass is SR grass, I just rezzed a handy snowy platform and took a picture in our sim setting.

But of course, I did end up buying something but at 30Lds honestly cheap as chips.

This is another large 3 prim tree.  If you’re wondering what that spikey thing is one of the dead roots of this tree which like the tree in the top picture there is as much going on at the base of these tree’s as there is on the top.  I’m not sure if I will keep the bases of the tree’s as they are and I do know they’re editable but the editing will be limited.  I could and probably simply lower the tree’s so the bases are buried under the sim.

Just look at that texturing.  Those almost frond-like branches will make a great contrast against a snowy backdrop.

Both the Group Gift and this 30Ld offer are non-copy so you only get the 1 to play with, nothing to stop you from grabbing a few copies of the GG though but tbh the full priced packs of landscaping plants, rocks etc are pretty reasonably priced in any case and some come with things like season changing menu’s etc.

There is much more there than just landscaping as this is a shop which is aimed at the Gor/RP/etc and the whole sim is decorated in a dark and mysterious way for you to wander around.

Deconstruct to Reconstruct(Freebies).

I swear tomorrow I’m going to clear my platform of all the clutter, pack up the contents of my old house which are still floating in the air and just clean up my carp! until then check out more clutter lol.

xxxtreeuse

So basically I was checking out the fountains I have in my invent for this really nice area in front of my home and I came across a simply stunning one that turned out to be an old gift so  I TPed over to the shop to see if this GG was still there, it isn’t, and if there is some new GGs, there are.   I picked 3 GG’s up and slapped a couple of gift boards before I had a good wander around and then TPed home to have even more fun.

The first item I’m showing you is this little meadow/tree set.  It’s all linked and comes with an unlinked bench which tbh I didn’t bother to put out. This tree and all the ground cover grasses is only 11prims, not sure how many prims the bench is though.

xxxtree2

This stone vase is only 7 prims and I’m not showing you the oversized rose bush on a trellis.

BUT what has got me all excited is that Bunny Badger the owner of Two Moon Gardens has allowed all of her gifts to be not only COPY but MOD and I’ve been tearing them apart with my bare teeth…ok with simple editing skills.

xxxtreeuse3

For example, the vase has bunches of these miniature Violas(?) which are only a prim each and will look stunning in the cracks of my old walls.  The grasses can be scattered across the sim to blend in with other grasses and break up the uniformity.  I have to be honest and say that the fountain set has, even more, examples of little cottage type bunches of flowers so when I get inworld I will be stripping that back to the bare bones but remember these are copyable which means no matter what I do to the original I will still have an untouched copy in my invent.

Gonna be a fun afternoon doing all of that and TBH If you haven’t learned how to unlink and other basic editing in SL it’s about time for you to give it a try and you couldn’t get more perfect items to test yourself on.

But of course you could keep these all together, the one thing I noticed about the …shop is that it has houses and small items for you to buy but the bulk of the stock is predesign scenes I’m only assuming but I feel that when you buy a preset piece it comes all in place just like the group gifts are so if you’re not into the fiddling with landscaping then this is perfect in fact it’s what I call “idiot proof”.

PS The gifts are on 2 levels and there is a handy TP board to take you to all areas of the sim but you might want to check out the MP to get an idea of the sort of things this shop has.
