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.

Blessed Relief.(Freebies & Bargain).

I don’t hide from RL problems in SL but being able to come inworld to just chill and switch off even if it is just for a short time is just such a relief.  Don’t worry it’s not me who’s ill but my partner but don’t worry because he’s home now and doing OK and DRIVING ME F**KING NUTS!……inhales deeply…..and he won’t share his “happy pills” with me the mean sod LOL.

Anyhow when I logged in the first 3 things I noticed was the tinkling of Crimbo music, the mini-map was showing that Faith has waved her magic wand and now our sim is all white and snowy and a lovely note off  one of our readers with a link to some SUPER Freebies and even as I was taking pictures of some of those freebies another one of our regular readers and hint giver IMed me and we had a lovely chat and she also has given me the links to some tasty stuff.

We/I always appreciate any heads up on freebies/bargains/events etc we may not blog them but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate the heads up at all, it might be because of lack of time, better finds, we’ve already done em etc

Anyhow this Heads up this time took me to a shop called Lunaria(if I’ve got the spelling wrong, sorry) which has a really good wall of free landscaping stuff.  I actually grabbed the lot but because the sim is now in full winter mode I’ve just slapped a couple of items out and the rest I will unpack at my leisure.

The LM takes you to a shop and in fact right next to the gifts and lucky boards but it also looks like “Lunari” is also a rental place.  If you’re looking for a winter home you might find this is a nice place so again check that out. I might just do that myself when time allows it.

So I quicky TPed home and literally just threw a few of the freebies down, the tree, archway and that patch of purple shrubs are just 3 examples of the gifts.

You can see the purplely flowers better now.  Everything is low primmed ie 2 for the tree and arch and 1 for the flowers.  I didn’t bother changing our sim setting now but all the greenery/autumnal colours will be going and a windlight setting to show off the cold winter settings will be used.  I’ve just remembered one of the freebies I picked up is a seasonal changing shrub set so although everything on our sim inc these new freebies will be packed away I know there is at least some which will be suitable for the Winter season.

There is some free clothing and Lucky boards and I did pick up a free outfit but again time is my enemy so I’m only just showing what I had time to unpack but I can’t wait to check the rest out.

But check out the outside of the shop because they have a lot of what I presume is a mix of free and for sale items(?).

That black shrub with the sparkling white dots only cost 75Lds for the pack and you get it in rows big and small and shrubs etc so you know I bought it as  I can just see that stark black with the glowing dots look stunning against a white background.

Sorry apart from Kylee I’ve forgotten the name of the person who dropped me the note for all of this stuff but they know who they are, and I might just do an update so I can add their name because I truly appreciated it.

PS Don’t ignore those 2 chests on the floor, both are marked at 0Lds and are going to be a nice surprise when I get back inworld.
