I don’t usually return to a store that I’ve recently featured BUT I had a notice out about a Valentines tree that had been put out as a group gift by Lunaria. This is the tree and very pretty it is too. It was a lot bigger out of the box but I resized it to fit my little courtyard. 3Li or if you make it smaller, 2Li. Dead pretty with hanging lights and red leaves – looks a treat in my garden. Andddd once again I was lured by the lucky boards which happen to be right next to the tree ! I won a little dress that I hadnt seen on my last trip – so yay! Group is free to join.
As soon as I spotted the Little Branch Wanderlust Weekend offer my heart sank as I knew Faith had just been looking Olive Trees for her land and with her being away meant she was going to miss this excellent discount. As it happens I though this Olive tree would also look fab on my land so I grabbed it and then flew over to Faith’s home to rezz her a copy and she already has it.
Yup, this is the one she has on her land so I was lazy and just zoomed and snapped. As you can see there are about 6 or 7 trunks and the branches are intertwined to create a canopy over your head. It is seasonal as well but I’m not sure if it’s just 2 or 3 seasons and only 7 Prims in total.
Actually, Faith won’t be “steaming” as I know she will have just been pleased to find what she wanted for her home so even if it did cost her a few more lindens she won’t be bothered and as it happens there is another item out for sale which I love and paid full price for so again in the end if you love it then it doesn’t matter if you paid a few more Lindens for it.
There is a Freebie out for the Little Branch Group which has been out for quite a while.
I changed the season to Autumn so it will stand out a bit more. Only 2 prims, and it rezzes at a perfect small tree/large shrub height.
Wanderlust Weekend. (Pictures & LM’s).
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.
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.
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.
Doesn’t this look like a lovely piece of art which I guess everything in SL really is.
Zoom out and of course, it’s a tree.
A fantastic heads up from a friend, gonna now call our “followers” friends because that’s what you’ve become. Anyhow it was perfect timing because today has been a sh*te day and it was time something nice happened and this was it. A lovely freebie from “Little Branch” which I think most people who have a home in SL will know that shop well. This is a big tree and 12 prims but it’s a plot stuffer and as you can see from the pictures it’s thick and lush what you can’t see is that this is a moving tree so it is gently swaying in the breeze, so unlike the trees outside my house at the moment as we are taking a little bit of battering at the mo.
Kiylee also told me about an event called “Blueprint Home and Garden Event” which is where I left my AV stood because as soon as I click publish I’m going to spend some leisurely time wandering around there.
PS. My “sh*te day is not the worst but I can still grumble and mumble about it but I hope EVERYONE out there is doing OK! as in the UK we’re having a bit of a battering with the wind and of course in some parts of the world they’re suffering very badly from extreme weather so my “problems” are pretty minor.
PPS I promise my next post will be clothing! I know that a lot of people don’t have homes in SL so I will make sure to find some wearable cuties for my next post.
I’m so easily distracted, I’m supposed to be landscaping our sim but yet again I got sidetracked by this brilliant gift from Little Branch.
I thought it was a Silver Birch, I have one of those in my RL garden and it has a special place in my heart but this one is called a “Golden Birch” as you can see it has that silvery bark that all Silver Birches have. What you can’t see is this tree has a lovely delicate movement to it plus it’s SEASONAL! and I’ve only just recently did a post where I said if you can afford it buy your landscaping that is seasonal. It’s a FREE group gift and the board it and the group invite are on is right next to the LM.
This is a really big tree which does show in the prims, I do believe it’s 12prims, you wouldn’t want to make it any bigger but if you shrink it down you obviously reduce the prims. Even shrunk down to the 5prim mark you will be left with a tree which was still a decent size. For me, since I’m after sim stuffers, ie extremely low prims I would only use this as a feature tree-dotted around, however, if you have only a small plot with just the space for a handful of plants this is perfect.
Check out this close up to see why.
You also get a couple of patches of grass and a shaped piece of land, I have used one of the patches of grass which is 4 prims for just that small plot but it’s so dense and really looks like real grass.
This is a brand new shopping mall in the sky called Francesca (by anc Ltd) and you just know that when someone goes to so much effort to make something look so stunning that the shops within are going to be special. A shopping mall of shop fronts only but easy TPs to the main stores so thats great and if the quality of the freebies are an example then you must visit the shops.
A sad little snap taken on my home which is now reduced to a patch of decking, a chair and lots of water. This skin is delightful. Pink and Lavender is the primary colours lovley soft lips and gentle shading over the body. You will be able to see it in a close up in the next photo. Comes from Huit and you get 2 choices, cleavage or non cleavage.
This close up shows that even the eyebrows have a light touch of colour. The next freebie are the glasses. Drat now that I can see the picture blown up I really should have worn the larger size but fortunately you get 3 sizes in the pack so big or small you will find a pair to fit.
Not much difference but I decided to pop back in and get another quick snap with the larger pair on just so you can see how clean and crisp the silver colour is and just a touch of bling with the diamonds but no blingtartiness. Very noticeable and completely shop quality.
There are other freebies to collect inc a lovely tree with wispy roses winding up it’s trunk from Forest Feast. I managed to pop to her landshop and was so impressed with what there I will be returning when I have more time so I can do it justice but as it happens I loved the tall spiky trees she has for sale next to the free tree I’ve already bought them.
Another “you must” here again because if you TP down to the anc shop on the land you will find new, fresh and novel props and poses. If you follow the big pointy hand outside you will find that the props are all set out in a lovely wintery scenic setting for you to have a go. They also have a small selection of Bloodline items, jewelry and pretty feathery unbrellas.
Go Fish, I just had to take this snap as an example of what you will find. I so want that fish for my own land, it floats around in the sky with it’s torch shining down.
Last word because the 2 hairs I am wearing are also freebies, probably blogged them before and will probably blogg them again because I love them. Simple lovely face framing hair. Tram is the shop. They have a mix of clothes and only a small collection simple, pretty face framing hair. You have to join the group to get this hair but it is free to join and they also have a couple of freebies on the table at the entrance and the hair is to be found on the table upstairs.
