Be a Tarte. (20Ld Group Gifts & Info on The Hot Chocolate Crawl).

The “The Hot Chocolate Crawl” is basically a list of some of the top shops in SL such as Dust Bunny. Each shop has an item out priced at just 75Lds which is a bargain price to pick yourself up something really nice.  I personally was tempted by 2 items but managed to TP out before I caved in.  I’ve decided that before I buy anything I go through my invent and bin as much free and paid for items which I don’t wear and only then will I buy or pick up new things.

One shop involved in this crawl is Tarte and Tarte has some FREEBIES out for us….nope Sh*t for brains has struck again as it does cost to join the Tarte Group but only 20Lds.

This is my little workroom in my home and the freebies are the Christmas tree, the mirror with the photos on the floor and some of the clutter on the table and the plant in the window.  Although a lot of you may recognise the work desk as an Apple Fall Freebie.

The mirror comes with instructions on how to change the images on the photos for ones of your own and I think that whole set up is just 3 prims.  On the table is a small set of craft clutter.  I’m not showing you one of the other gifts which is a little pile of nail varnish bottles as they wouldn’t fit into this room but both them and this craft clutter I do believe are only 1 prim and soooo detailed!

In the first picture, you can see this planter and it’s too big, so although this is a close-up picture of it and it still looks big it has been shrunk down and looks so much better for it.

I’ll put the link to the start of the crawl where you can click on the poster and get the list of shops involved.

Nothing lasts forever.(Freebies).

The sun stayed out for all of 20 mins but that was all I needed to check my greenhouse is still standing, scurry out to the recycling bin, drink a big mug of coffee and now I’m back.

One of the few items I bought from the Redeux “Black Friday & Cyber Monday” event was a little set of bolts of fabric, only 39Lds if I remember correctly. They came off the  Muniick stall and of course, at the same time I picked up the Gift which turned out to be a simple but quality textured stool.  Both the gift and the item I bought were enough to send me over to the main shop to see what else there was to tempt me.

The Muniick shop is small but hopefully looking at the stock it’s going to grow.  I didn’t buy anything but I may return to the Redeux event as there is a stunning old fashioned sewing machine which is on sale there and you can see it in the main shop as well.  I just need to check my invent first as I know I already own sewing machines as no matter how tempting this new one is if I have too many already it’s a waste.  There were 2 other items which had me lingering over them but in the end, I managed to resist.  These aren’t at a discounted price so I’ve LM’ed this place for a revisit to not just lookout for new gifts but also new stock.

I didn’t leave the Muniick shop empty-handed as the plant and pinwheel you can see in this picture are Group Gifts in the shop.  The pinwheel is particularly good and you get a wearable version.

PS.  Sadly I will have to resist the sewing machine as I did a quick check and although I had a horrible old primmy set up, trashed now, I do have some sewing machines which are as good now as when I bought them.

Squeely things.(Freebie).

I think this is a new shop/LM for Mishmish and if you’re a lover of squishies, plushies, Kawaii or wearable then avoid this shop at all costs and just grab this freebie from the entrance instead. OH Lord so many adorable things in this shop I think you will struggle to resist.

There is a wearable version but that’s for the VIP members and I believe it costs either 50 or 100Lds to join.

PS.  Yes I was lazy and just took a picture of it inworld.

Oops I did it again! (Sub Gift).

Two clicks and my old house has gone and in its place, my Apple Fall Farmhouse has been rezzed, I have an addiction and if you try to stop me I will CUT YOU!

As I was stood there trying to shoehorn the stuff from my old house into the new house and going through my invent I came across some items from a shop called Funky Junk.  One profile check later showed me that not only was Ulaa still inworld but although her profile says her shop is “temp closed” it’s not it’s actually opened for business.

Before I started to wander around the shop and houses which are for sale I, of course, slapped the Sub-board and it turns out this is the gift…oooooo very nice indeed but booooo not mod lol.  What you can’t see is the butterflies as they flew out of shot just as I clicked.

There seems to be more builds/homes than decor items but I spotted some pretty pictures and a set of washing lines which I think I may return to buy but I decided to pop home and see what the sub gift was and of course, it’s this.

I’m MADDDDD!!!!! (Freebie).

I’ve just spent a wodge full of lindens this morning and I’m not too unhappy with what I bought but this FREEBIE was almost the best thing, esp since it’s also COPY, MOD and UNLINKED my fav 3 words and always much appreciated.

Not the best position for it, I was just sat on my chair and I rezzed and moved it into place because I was too lazy to do much else.  Those tea lights are so bright as you can see they really lit up the whole area and they crackle like a fire.  Because they’re so small you can tuck them into nooks and crannies where you would like to add some secret atmospheric lighting but don’t want to use a lamp.

So I quickly moved the pretty glass vase and plant downstairs to the top of my piano.

Then back upstairs I moved that fantastic wood/concrete? shelf to the other window.  I’ve already popped a copy of this into a folder of its own as it’s going to make a lovely feature either inside or outside.

You get these from Zen Creations.  Most of the items are in a rezzer and if you fly around the sim you will see some really quality and unique builds.

Thanks to Moz, (Freebies).

Moz mentioned that at Hive there was a FLF offer I may have missed and I had but I resisted, already have similar sorts of things, but I do love and need the FREEBIES.

I am pretty sure that the laundry basket is an old GG, in fact, I’m almost 100% sure I still have it but as for that plant, it looks new to me.  Doesn’t really matter as what is old to some is new to others and I think the plant is 2 prim and the laundry basket is either 2 or 3 prims and totally 100% shop quality.  There are a couple of other gifts inc a full-sized Pagola, Pagoda or whatever it’s called and I remember blogging that so I will leave it for you to check out.

Easy to miss me.(Freebie).

I click everything which turned out to be lucky as I don’t think many of us would have known that this is a FREEBIE or maybe a mistake lol.  There isn’t any sign to say it’s “free” it’s just there among all the other really good plants/shrubs you will find in the Reid Parkin shop.

The larger version is as it’s rezzed and it’s only 1 prim even at that size but as you can see it’s editable.

You will recognise a lot of the plants/shrubs/ivy’s from this shop as their planting is used by many including us to create spots of interest in our garden and sim.

PS.  Her shop isn’t massive and this plant is next to a purple one in a pot so look for that and this is right there.
