Pottering & Parks

Autumn is my favourite time of the year and along comes Circa with some totally fabulous seasonal releases! The studio style building is one of the releases – “FieldView” – really tempting open plan build with windows either end to let in the glorious Autumn sun-rays. It comes with two planters and an ivy clad trellis wall. (Build is 36Li , plant decor 9Li) Check out the circular planters (part of the “Waterton” release), large array of different plants available plus of course the single tress with multi tone leaves via the menu and the tree with bench. Sweet single and couple poses built-in and texture change on the tiles.

Also out now is the “Waterton” Park & Garden collection. I am so loving this – the details for the plants and foliage are superb. Of course I gravitated towards the fountain , adorable Koi and Goldfish (easy clean up option hurrha! No more groping around trying to collect them up if you move it!) This comes in three varying tones of brickwork btw. Crisp water action is über realistic.

If you’re speedy you can get a whopping 50% discount on some of these items – until the 29th October.

Monday Meh!(Freebie).

Don’t talk to me, it’s 10.26am and I’ve only just finished my first cup of coffee! Trust me until the second cup hits my bloodstream NO ONE LIKES ME!

Fortunately, I’d found this cutie last night and I’m just starting my second cup so by the time I click “Publish” I will be back to my sweet-natured self.

The one thing about quality gifts is that people have a tendency to keep them and it acts as a reminder for your shop, so when I came across an old quality gift from CJ Creations I decided to pop over and see if it was still there as I don’t mind reblogging items when they’re perfect for the season etc the old gift is not there but this new one is.

It’s a dog, obviously, sitting in an umbrella, again obviously, and it’s full of plants and pumpkins again obviously (remember no one likes me till my second cup!).  OK, you might just spot the puppy on the Mums head but the one on her back is out of sight.  This also comes with that sprinkling of leaves.  I believe it is about 6 prims and you know that if it was editable I would have torn it apart.  It does have a resizing menu though so you can make it a bit bigger/smaller.

Be warned I had to keep that little voice in my head saying “you don’t need more landscaping stuff” as I checked out the shop.  Although you can buy individual items such as patches of grass, trees etc this is one of the shops which have a lot of those premade little landscaping scenes.  Really exc esp for those who don’t have the time or eye to create their own little patch of Heaven, just slap yer Lindens down and it’s sorted.

This gift is to be found at the back of the greenhouse and this is a FREE for all gift so you just buy it for 0Lindens.

PS. My second cup has hit the spot and now I’m as sweet as pie, don’t laugh Faith!

I should be working but….(Freebie).

But instead of working I’m Sim Hopping and came across the “Special Moments” shop (above the doorway it says The Plaza) which I’d already been too and since the GG is still out and I already had it a quick TP home, rezz, snap and here it is.

A very pink, pink lemonade dispenser only 2 prims and ont touch and you get a nice glass of pink lemonade to slurp on.  This and another Gift are to be found just at the entrance to the shop. The other gift is a lit up VIP sign which I will probably use some time as a prop in a picture.

I should be working but I found a Twix in the bottom of the drawer, I must have hidden it a long time ago and forgot about it, and I’m just gonna have a lazy Monday sim hopping.

Special Moments

I have it all! (FREEBIES)

Woah! So I finally got over to the Cosmopolitan event which turns out to be celebrating 5 years in SL and you know what that means?  Nope no cake but even better…OOODLES and OOODLES of gifties and even better the gifts are so good!

OK ignore the room I’m in as it’s actually a Rare Gacha win from this event, yes I do spend Lindens lol, but the rest is all freebies and I was having a very pleasant time just rezzing stuff, trying the clothes on and of course seeing what is editable and then I get the heads up that this event only has a few more days left to go!!!

So I snapped some basic piccies in my Nams setting of what I already had out so you can see the quality and yes this shabby chic/romantic fireplace is editable LOL.

It’s obvious whats what in this picture but if you don’t need any new decor items don’t worry, shoes, boots, clothes, nails, jewelry etc are all there as well and from well-known SL shops.

The dress in the top picture is from one of my fav SL shops and I loved this metallic with sheer bits outfit as well.  There was a pair of jeans as well as a halter top that I had briefly tried on and that top is a keeper for me when I refind it.

I will be logging back in-world soon to continue with my happy unpacking and sorting out but since this event is in its last few days I didn’t want to delay telling you about it.  So over all really you need to just go and join the Cosmopolitan group, invite in the entry, and click away as there are so many gifts and so many lovely surprises just waiting for you.

Update because I’ve found out we have till the 13th to get grabby so still a reasonable amount of time but at the same time don’t linger.

Cosmopolitan (Behind you and up the steps).

MP for a Dollarbie.

Just a quickie cos RL is calling.

A sweet Dollarbie from a shop called “The Ruddy Duck”

A simple planter of Hibiscus flowers.  It says “copy and mod” but I haven’t had time to play with it not that it needs to be changed.  So a lovely and simple sweet gift for your home/garden.

“OK, FFS RL I’m COMMING!”

The Ruddy Duck(Marketplace).

Old, New, Cheap and Free and no I’m not talking about me! (Freebies, GG’s etc)

A whole mix of goodies which is going to make your SL home lovely and not hurt your pocket.

First is the lounging chair, male/female and couple poses.  Low primmed, cute and a FREE gift and although it’s a “Shutter field” gift you have to join the Godrics Hollow Group, which is free but the Shutter field is not but more about that later.  Since this smaller shop isn’t in the main Shutter Field shop once I’d grabbed I TPed over to check out the larger main shop.

The Shutter Field group only costs 20Lds to join and there is not only so many of the old GG’s but some new to me ones plus also some very discounted items and in this picture you can see some of everything.

I’ve shown you the food tray before, this one is the wine and steak and I think the other one is beer n burger but the game board is new.  You get 2 versions this rustic one and a beach one.

The flowers in vases are super GG’s but I went crazy for all of 35Lds and bought this small side/coffee table and yes of course I checked and it’s editable.

Another new to me GG is this coffee shelf.

Definitely not new but just so damned good they deserved to be reblogged again and again and again until Faith screams at me to “STOP”.  2 sets of planters, one inc the 2 barrels and the other the 2 metal ones and the hanging one.  Just great home and garden decor and yes, of course, editable if you really want to

I just zoomed in for a close-up.

As always popping over to Shutter Field has made my Sunday as I was eyeing up something which just wasn’t so great but I didn’t want to miss posting something on a Sunday so to find and refind these brill things means I can now log off with peace of mind and enjoy my lunch.

Have a great day and I will see ya’s tomorrow.

PS. Hunger has made me forget a few things, firstly to pick up the chair you will have to be an adult to get into that sim, secondly Shutter Feild is a row of small shops but all are stocked with Shutter Field items, the last shop has the GG’s and discounts but it also shares the sim with a similar shop so if the LM doesn’t take you to the SF Shop just walk or fly over.  Honestly easy to understand when you get there and thirdly MORE Grou Gifts are there I’m only showing you a few of them so if none of these look of any interest to you make sure to still go as there maybe something else or of course you could splash the cash because Shutter Field has some really nice stuff and I do have OMG stuff I’ve paid Lindens for!

Trapped in the Gym!(Freebies)

This gym is a build I have on our sim and next door is the photo studio I used when I need to take a quick pic or a close up.  Since I don’t want to take off my new gym clothes  I thought I would use this room for my next 2 posts even though what I’m going to show you has no relation to gym/exercise etc LOL.

This just turned up this morning from NC(Noble Creations) and since I’m not in their group but I am subbed to them I’m going to assume it’s been sent out to all us subbers.   NC, leans towards the RP/Medieval/Victorian style but as I always say do not let that put you off.  Amazing statement pieces and smaller decor items that will fit into any home or garden and lend a classy style to your home.

This is a perfect example of what you get,  exc texturing and low prim because it’s only 1 prim for a full sized standing mirror.  As it happens I also noticed it comes with a resizer menu and I wonder if you could shrink a copy down small enough to fit on a dressing table so you could have a matching pair?

UPDATE because I popped over to NC I can’t see this mirror in the Sub history or set out with the other GG’s, but slap the sub board and it might get resent out in the near future OR even better the NC Group is still FREE to join and I recognise some items that I’ve already blogged but a couple which are new to me.  So you might not be able to score this mirror but trust me a quick pop over, join the group ,grab that stuff and if you can’t remain in the NC group slap the sub so you don’t miss any more goodies being sent out.

The second randomness is an adorable April shower umbrella and matching bag set.

This is the pose they come with and you can wear them as separates.  Yes, I did rezz them on the ground and at 14 prims for the brolly and 20+ for the bag a bit too high to use as decor items.  Even if you don’t want these items there are other gifts at Sevyn East, a couple of which I have shown you before and a couple I haven’t.  So worth a pop over to check it all out.

PS. Don’t worry about that “flaw” with the bag, if you can even spot it, the floor of this gym is one of those super glazed ones with a copy of what’s above underneath to give the impression that the floor is so shiny it’s reflecting what’s above.  Looks amazing but when it comes to rezzing things I have to be careful as they usually end up rezzed under the floor.  So the bag is perfectly fine it’s the floor that’s creating a bit of an issue.
