Saving for Christmas.(Freebies).

I hate to say this but you do know that there are only 2 PAY PACKETS between now and Christmas?  Most people use an advent calendar as a countdown to Christmas but me and my OH use pay packets LOL.

So here is a great way to save, in SL at least.

This gazebo is a FREEBIE! Top quality and this version with the lights on the roof is only 18 prims which is more than reasonable but if you want less prims then the unlit one is only 10.

These were a surprise and a great one at that.

KEEPERS! (I already have enough Gazebos to fill a market garden so it’s going!).  You get 2 versions, the only difference is the coloured bauble on top.  The rezzed size is the middle one and it’s only 2 prims I shrank one down and it’s 1 prim and then I made the third one bigger and it remained 2 prims.  So you can make them big for statement pieces or shrink em down for table/mantlepiece decor.  I should have zoomed in closer, I was having a bad morning, because the detailing esp in the greenery is exc.

There are other gifts appropriately placed under the Christmas tree and they too have a Christmassy theme.  You will find all of these at The Builders Box HQ.  The Builders Box I do believe is one of those monthly sub-clubs.  I LOVE them but not in SL lol.  In RL I got a monthly Birchbox delivery and each month I got to “ooh” over Froo Froo.  I’ve never really paid much attention to the ones inworld as I just don’t need but this is a wonderful way to pay your money and the excitement you will have as you unpack your goodies/surprises from some of the biggest and best names in SL.

PS I’ve just spotted we still have all that green, got to change that grass when I get inworld.

Its Ultra

Chez Moi are in the latest round of Ultra and have a dead fancy-smancy French Country pergola, table, chairs and planter set out. The pergola has already won a place on our sim, it’s just beautiful.

I choose the bare wood option for my home, as you can see above. The lanterns switch on and off, the animations are utterly adorable in either set – whats not to fall in love with! Thanks Nanda ❤

The Great British Summer? Peace by Peace Hunt

Dench Designs has a wonderful item out for the    hunt. You get this picnic table and the gazebo! Full of hidden delights as well, the table will load up with food & drink – as much as you want prims allowing of course. Table cloth is texture change as is the gazebo, you can also add fairy lights, fancy light bulbs and even RAIN! We always get rained out at our BBQ’s lol.

If you look really really hard you can see the rain around me, the food items are really nicely done and you get to wear them in certain poses. Brilliant gift – thank you Amanda<3 (cost is $1L so almost free! – Hint is “a stitch in time saves nine, better get sewing then”) My hair is new from Tableau Vivant and is called “teri”, you have an optional braid with it plus two versions of the style itself – I loved the “messy” one! Their birthday gift is really sweet as it goes with this hair – wont spoil the surprise.

A place for all Seasons

New round of Home Whimsy is on and Lunar Seasonal Designs has a brilliant piece out for it. What appears to be a rather pretty and useful Gazebo turns out to be a real “forever” item! Now, Zan and I have learnt the hard way the last few years on our own sim Dreamworks – it’s better to buy seasonal decor then to keep on changing every.damm.thing each time the season changes! Sooo imagine my delight when I realised that this gazebo not only has colour change on all parts (even the roof) but “drum roll” it also has the ability to provide seasonal panoramas & weather all around! The surround is provided by clear panels which can also be turned off if you don’t want them.

 

You can choose from heaps of different things – from snow and rain, to panoramas of the desert and forest, and weather effects such as rain and snow, even fog! I’ve found it an ideal space for taking photos actually, with its great range of backgrounds and effects. You can get this at 50% discount during the event – thats only $100L.

As you can see here, I have chosen the rain effects, which is so relaxing and peaceful. I’m taking a toe dip in the new  rustic bath tub from Chez Moi, this is available at The Chapter Four event, PG & Adult versions for sale. The deets:

This tub comes with 64 animations in PG version and 120 animations in Adult version.
♥ 24 single poses (male and female)
♥ 40 animations for couples in love (20 x 2)
♥ 56 hot sex animations (28 x 2)
♥ Automatic Rezzing Props – attaches when an animation is chosen.Tap the faucet to display the water style menu: Romantic with roses, Foam Water, Clear Water.♥ Control by menu
♥ Adjustable Poses
♥ Functionality SWAP

♥ Bathtub: 5 LI | Copy | Modifiable

Sunday…Sunday…

Sunday new

Its Sunday, and I was trying to get in various shopping events, getting more and more frustrated with each attempted teleport. I wandered outside, and sat at my harp in the grounds of our home sim Dreamworks. As I sat there and the beautiful harp music surrounded me, I begun to relax, looked around our glorious home and sunk a little more softly into my chair. I think it’s so easy in Second Life to lose sight of what we already have, it’s always onto the next event, the latest sale etc. So today – Sunday – I am going to savour and enjoy what I have, the things that are in my Second Life, be that objects or friends. Try it  for yourself, you are always welcome at Dreamworks if you need a place for some peace & quiet. Landmark below ❤

The third gazebo is the relaxing hangout – champagne on ice, a crackling fire, would certainly round an evening off to snuggle up in one of the chairs and relax in front of the fire no? Everything is so well detailed and for the amount of decoration included the prims are very low really. It is all soft linked – meaning you can add and subtract as you wish, keep items from sets to go in your home – such as the piano or chairs etc. Anyyyway here’s the write-up:

~♥~ Animated couple sofas with 8 couple animations for sitting together and kiss.
~♥~Animated champagne bucket, rose petals, chandelier
~♥~ Menu controlled realistic fireplace & rug
