Free or Cheap.

It’s not often I get to use this pose so it was fun to dust it off as it’s pretty suitable for these free flower patches from CJ Creations.

You get two patches, one of the yellow flowers and the other one is Daisys.  Pretty standard in size and prims (1prim) but as you can see a nice dense texturing so a fine Free For All gift from CJ Creations.

To find this you need to go into the large greenhouse and it’s on your right but there is much more outside.

Although there is a lot of varied things one of the big things about the CJ shop is the small scene-setting little plots.  Faith and I love nothing better than faffin on our sim but for most renters, you have a small plot to work with and of course, not everyone wants to faff so these premade scenes are perfect. Just a quick rezz and you can change the look of your garden to suit your mood.

Last night before I logged off I popped into the “TWE12VE” event (it starts on the 12th of each month) which is celebrating a Birthday and on each stall is an item set out for, go on have a guess?  Nope, not free but only 12Ld.  All of the gifts have a little picture so you can see what is in the gift bag so you can make your mind up before you buy.  It wasn’t until I zoomed in closely that I realised this was patterned in a sea theme when I’d put it on it’s colours have a more muted Autumn feel to me.

You get lots of fits and a nice hud of textures and because the body of this top has a puffed out fit it means that I found more things like the blue skirt I’m wearing fitted nicely under it.

BUT this will shock you because I’m sorely tempted to buy the cropped hoodie even though they have slogans on the front.  Not only are they just 99Ld but the designs/slogans are pretty fun.

Keeping in budget!(50Ld & Mention of Freebies).

If you remember last month I gave myself a 500Ld spending limit and it went so well I decided to do the same thing this month, I seriously wish I could do it in RL as I went and spent way too much when I was away!

Outside of the Arcane Spellcaster, the shop from my last post, I spotted an amazing old stagecoach which is how I ended up at “LOVE” a landscaping/decor shopping sim and although I’ve not found that horse and carriage set look what I did find.

I threw my 50Lds at the sign and rushed home and just slapped this paving/water feature down on our sim and snapped away.

I know you can’t make out the size from this picture but this is a perfect size for any courtyard, garden or patio for any sized home and it is mod.  As it’s rezzed only 3 prims.  You get 2 colours a stone shade and this brown shade.

The water effect is EXCELLENT, the way water moves in SL has just become so much better over the years, it’s subtle and yet at the same time distinctive but you will be able to see that for yourself as there is a rezzed example at the LM given.

I can hardly wait to incorporate this into my new home when the seasons change it’s going to look awesome.

There are freebies in this shop but they’ve not changed so I’m not showing you them but if you don’t know this shop

Big enough to burn a corpse.(Freebies).

I promise you I did go out and do something else for a change but I’m home now and so to kill time before I go do something else I decided to check to see if these freebies were still out and happily they are.

I can’t remember what they called this but it’s a Chimnea?  Although you can’t really make out the proportions I can assure you I’m actually stood behind it lol.  So a pretty substantial patio filling item.

If you need something smaller then no problem as this is also included in the gift bag.

A Ying and Yang tabletop item. The water even ripples and check out the close up of the little fishes.

I think both items are 5 prims and not editable.

You find these in the gift bag on the reception desk and it’s set to be bought for 0Lds by anyone.  There is 2 items of clothing in the bags as well, one for him and one for her but go for these not those.

This post includes my two fav words.(5Ld old gift).

This little round flower bed is perfect for a garden of any size but if you have a small plot of land then it’s even better.

I betcha can guess what I’m going to say next? COPY and MOD, my two fav words and you can really break this one down to just the rocks and soil and now I’m wondering if I could even remove the soil, I decided to log out as my tum was rumbling and I need my lunch but when I log back in I might just try that out.

It’s one of a number of old gifts which are being sold off at a very discounted price at Myth.  I do know Faith blogged the tea set, or it could have been me, but there are some more decor items for you to check out.

Total sh*te.(50Lds Group Gifts).

The group gifts from Granola are most certainly not “total sh*te” in fact they’re brill.

This washtub and washing line set is outside of the shop, you buy it inside in the reception area, so you can see the quality before you decide to join the group.

What is “sh*te” is the pictures I took of the rest of the Group Gifts.  Once I’d grabbed these I took a wander around the shop and found that there is a GROUP gift room in the back with a few more gifts which are just as good as these ones.  I particularly loved the seedlings in tin cans with such detailed misters they look so real but the pictures I took were useless.  So I’m going to post this and then when I log back in I’m going to give it another try as I’d hate you to miss them.

BTW This shop has a Gacha up at the Arcade and although I’ve not been to the Arcade event yet this is one of just a couple of Gacha’s I’m going to take a chance on as all of the prizes look so good I don’t mind what I win.  They have a picture up of the prizes in the shop as well and I think you will see what I mean.

UPDATE.

I’m happy with these so here is a couple of pictures to show you some more of the Group Gifts.  There are more there, some shelves, a sideboard and I can’t remember if there were any more gifts.

These 3 items are in the same delivery hud and as you can see from the baubles they’re the Christmas gift.

See what I mean?  Detailed and adorable.

The rabbit patch above is the gift by Tylers Treasures, it did come with a big orange sign above, but I detached it using edit mode and un link. You might prefer it with the sign though. The two butterfly flower beds are by Flying Arts – 50% discount during this round of The Creative Spark – I think I am right in saying they are $40L each , low prim and if you touch the butterflies their wings flap – beautiful !
