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.

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.

Repeats, repeats bloddy repeats!(Freebies).

I’ve had this post in my drafts for quite a while now and I just want to throw this post in so I can clear my clutter up.  Some of the items shown you may have seen in my previous post but you may not have seen that or now you might be in a situation where you could use some quality decor items.

The folding screen, the rug, the hat with hud but at 2 prims also makes a great decor item, a coffee mug and cake, those excellent candlesticks and although you can’t see it clearly on the very top box is an orange cake that looks so yummy you wish you could just cut a slice off it.  Not all the Group Gifts are shown here so GO GO GO….just don’t go using your old LM use mine as the shop has been moved to a temp place and the Gifts are right next to the LM.

Now look at the “cake stands” in the bottom left corner, these come from the Decor Junction shop and aren’t actually cake stands they’re “organisers” and I will say I did buy my Dad one for Christmas one year.  You get 3 of them and as you can see they’re editable as I shrunk one.  If I remember correctly only 1 prim even at full size but I could be wrong.  There are other GG’s in this shop as well of modern looking coffee/side tables which again look really good but wouldn’t have fitted in with the style of the picture.

And now for the last shop and I TPed to my front door to put the planters there.

HjM Design has these as well as other gifts and I am kicking myself because there was one I did want to show you and it’s little table top planters which are cute.  Never mind you will see them for yourself if you go to get these. Yup they’re editable and copy and so you can rip them apart and those bold flowers will add more interest to your landscaping.

Times up.(Freebie’s).

RL cannot be ignored and so in 5 mins I’m going to have to log off SL and log in to RL…damn!  So instead of rushing back and unpacking and scene setting my latest freebie I simply pointed and clicked on the plant which is already being used as a decor item on the beautiful little floating platform which the Mokka shop is on.

You get 2 shades of this Hydrangea, this “purple” one which looks pink/red to me and a blue version.  Just stunning.  3 prims to each clump but the boldness of the colours means you just need to use 1 or 2 of them to get a great impact.  This item is a free for all so just click on the board to buy for 0Lds but there are 2 food based GG’s as well……..and that’s it time to goooooooo……

Still here.(Freebies).

I actually don’t leave till 6.30am so I’m still loitering for a while and here is a quickie I couldn’t resist grabbing.

When you TP over to La Galleria just walk forward and then to your right and you will see 2 greenhouses and in them is a mix of old and new free for all goodies inc the greenhouses themselves.  So all you have to do is click and buy for 0Lds.

Remember to slap that sub-board at the LM because this is a shop that’s pretty generous with seasonal freebies and I’ve gotten a lot of nice low primmed decor and gardening items.

First deconstruction of the year.(Freebies).

Just as I was binning all my finds from this mornings freebie hunting a note came through from Searlait Nitschke who owns Roawenwood about something called “a circle of giving” and this is where a group of shops have just dropped off some nice gifts for anyone to come and grab so I went and grabbed.

This rug looks familiar to me, I’m also pretty sure I still have it because it comes with a texture changing option and you get 1 rug with poses in it.  Perfect size for small areas and really good natural scrunching.  The cupcake is super Kawaii and although it has snowflakes on it I see no reason to have that out all year round.  The fruitcakes again come in 2 options this decorated one and a plainer one for all year round use.

This is what I tore apart.

Lovely colours with light floating twinkling lights.  I started to take it apart to see if I could remove the only real Winter/Christmas item which is the small Holly you can see at the bottom right but sadly you cannot just remove that as it’s attached to the pots….but that didn’t stop me from removing the pots just to leave those plants.

I didn’t deconstruct it anymore but even so this little clump of flowers, 3prims, really do stand out so either keep them exactly as they come in the original pots (4 prims) or break them down pop them into your own pot or in your garden or just take the 1 or 2 little plants

All of the gifts are scattered on the pile of snow you will find at the LM, although not every box seemed to contain a gift there was plenty of them to keep me out of trouble. There are lots of other things that I’m just not showing you, there is some clothing, a floral headdress, more decor items etc and I don’t think I even got everything that’s there so click away my friends and have fun unpacking and sorting your way through it.

PS use this LM, not the usual Roawenwood one as it takes you directly to the gifts plus I think Searlait Nitschke is actually going to be dropping off other gifts at this LM.

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!
