Canned Plants & Bike. (Freebie(s)).

I do grow a lot of succulents in RL, not sure how my addiction to them started I guess it was because they harder to kill than a lot of plants and I’m a well known plant killer. They’re so easy to propigate as well so basically I have so many that when I see a gap, container, old tin I just shove one it. So for me this sweet gift from a shop called Noveny was a nice buzz on a very wet and cold monday morning.

Each little tin can is only 1 prim. Although these come from the Noveny shop you get them from an event called “The Beauty Sales Event”. Not going to lie, saw these as soon as I walked in, squealed like a fool grabbed them and TP home without checking this event out fully.

I did spot the other 2 Gifts which some of you may reconise as these bags were gifts from a shop called “My Bags”. I’m so glad they’re now again available as freebies at this event as they’re so detailed and come with a great wearing pose. 16 prims means maybe an item of decor if you have spare prims.

BTW This isn’t just a make up event, it’s packed with clothes and accessories.

Sooooo since the Noveny shop is new to me I had to log back in and check it out so check this out.

Yes this is a FREEBIE! A lovely rustic bike. At 8 prims a perfect item of decor and it does come with some poses both single and couple. It can be edited so the basket on the front and back can be removed but why would you? They just add to the loveliness of this item.

Although this is in the Noveny shop it’s a Fab Free gift, join, then pay 1Ld which is returned.

I have to log off for a little while now but I’ve left my AV stood in the Noveny shop as I’ve spotted some very nice plants/planters etc and I want to check the whole shop out on my return.

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.

But me no Butts. (Freebies@Apple Fall).

Anyone who owns a home will know that dotted around the Apple Fall shop are hidden freebies and it’s only when your pointer is hovering over the goodies that you see they have been set to zero.

Imp gave me the heads up that there are NEW ones, as well as some golden oldies, and she is right.

I will not tell you where to find this Butt planter or any of the old and new gifts as the reason they’re dotted around the shop is to make people look at everything for sale.  So hunt and seek for yourself but I will say make sure that before you head off into the shop make sure to check out everything at the LM as there are some new to me gifts.

I’ll also say make sure to check out the “Outlet” department, at the back of the shop you will see a dresser and above that is a big pink framed picture with “outlet” written on it and one click of that takes you to that department and yes there are some more freebies in there.

The Apple Fall shop is now up in the sky so if you’ve not checked it out since it’s move then use my LM.

Big Thanks to Imp for this reminder as I’ve picked up even more stuff I will be using in my home.

More for info. (Freebies).

Oooo, Oooo and Oooo again, look what turned up in my invent this morning.

That big stunning tree is a freebie from Hayabusa BUT you won’t find it in the shop as this is sent directly to you which means you have to be in the group, free, and I’m not sure that if you join now it will be sent to you automatically or you will miss out on this gift and have to wait for the next one to be sent out.  What is even nicer is that the free ones do usually come with complete menu’s so you can change the colour of leaves, flowers, bark and also the movement because of course the Hayabusa range is so well known for it’s moving in the wind motions.

This tree is 15prims which is not unreasonable for such a statement tree but you can get equal quality in their 1prim trees.

INFO ONLY:

Looks like Catwa now has a FREE Mesh Head out for us and here is my fav word  “BUT” as I do believe it’s limited in quality and as you can imagine the shop is crammed.  So I will give you the LM and you can keep on trying for yourself.

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.
