I was rummaging in my invent, binning this n that and tucking things away and I came across a folder of plants I previously blogged but in that folder from the same shop was also 2 boxes of “old stuff” and boy am I glad I opened them.
Usually, when stuff is “old” it’s a bit lacking but also they can give you a chuckle however in this box of old stuff I found some very interesting items.I’m just going to show you 1 item and it’s this “Candelabra Wand” and as you can see from my glowing face it’s super bright. I didn’t rezz a copy to see how many prims it is but laid on a table it will act as a magical lamp or wear it when you’re on a hunt to light your way. There are 2 other “wands” plus as it happens some Christmassy items TBH I’m just going to leave it to you to unpack have a chuckle, bin what you don’t want but I bet you will keep a few of them.
Don’t worry when you get there and it’s a “Rental Office”. Lunaria is the name of this rental agency but it’s also a shop so just walk through a couple of rooms and you will find the 2 boxes on the floor in the room which has a lot of Free to join Group Gifts and it’s the plants I’ve previously blogged but there is also clothes and Lucky Boards.
PS. Why the HELL is the whole of the UK blanketed in snow and it don’t even have the slightest dusting of the stuff! I WANT SNOW!
I wasn’t going to go to the FaMESHed event because you all will know that it’s on and that chances like all the other events there are GIFTIES under the Christmas Tree so you didn’t need me to tell you about it but when I saw the Coco gift of this sporty/casual set I was off like a scalded cat.
This outfit was worth the lag alone but I’ve seen pictures of what the rest of the gifts are and although this event is calming down I’m going to give it a few more days (doesn’t finish till the 27th) before I head back in and this time I might even BUY something!!! If you’re wondering it’s the Trompe Loeil Sleigh, the PG version of course.
Till then check out the Seraphim blog because not only is there a link to the event but pictures of whats for sale, not the gifts though.
Oh my gawd – I popped over to ON9 and did a little shopping – noticed some gifts scattered about so collected a few. (Group is free to join). I had NO idea that one of the gifts would be a mink jacket *squeeee*. Not that I advocate wearing animal fur in any shape or form – but here in SL it’s all fake right?! The AnaMarkova gift is the fur jacket andddd the shimmery slinky dress. Various mesh body fits included – infact all I think?. No alphas used in the wearing of this outfit I swear. My hair was also a gifty, from Iconic, never seen this hair designer before and was really chuffed with this classic style – you get alllll the tones too! My glorious glossy red lips are curtesy of Lakshmi and my bag with pose is free from Fashiowl (set of four poses free at their store not the event – posted on one of the walls). Brilliant gifts thank you!
My RL house is now all twinkling and decked out in all its Christmassy glory, I, on the other hand, look as though I’ve had hand to hand combat with a feral cat and lost! My poor hands and arms are scratched to ribbon because my fake assed tree is like barbed wire. Now all the twinking stuff is up all I can think about is how much all of this is going to cost me when my next power bills come in!
That’s enough Humbuging from me. I only managed to get inworld for a very brief time and thought that maybe the On9 event might be a bit quieter than all the others going on but I was wrong. It’s so bad not even my skirt would rezz so I just cammed and grabbed the first 2 freebies off the stands at this event but it was more than enough to make me happy.
This chair is the first gift I opened and with that exc texturing you can see and great poses you can’t see it’s a keeper esp for my new home. I will be popping back again to not just see what else is free but also to see some new designs.
When Xmas is over I’m going to have to take some blogging time off and go TRASH crazy. It’s been another stunning year for events, gifts, freebies etc and it’s still just the start of December. So with a heavy heart and stuffed invent I Tped over to “It’s a Gacha Life” which is a smaller Gacha fair, check out the building for more Gacha’s as I almost missed them”.
Gonna be honest and say that out of everything I saw I only took the Simply Shelby gift because LOOK AT IT!!!
Who wouldn’t want this in their home or/and garden and although not a Christmas plant those colours are definitely are.
I actually have a decent amount of items from Shelby Oliver’s shop now and the one thing I know is that her stuff isn’t just excellent but on the whole, it’s EDITABLE! Which is a really lovely thing to do because it means you can strip things down, tear it apart, shrink or grow in and in this case you can also make copies. Only 2 prims for the whole thing but if you separate it then it’s 2 for the plant and 2 for the pot and the pot on it’s own is good enough to make copies to pop in a plant you may have but don’t have a pot to put it in. You can change the size of the plant but I do believe that the size it rezzes in is the smallest it will go.
I’ll post this now but once I’m back inworld I will do an update with the LM for the Simply Shelby shop not just to see if there is any GG’s in her shop but also to see if there is something to buy for my new home.
UPDATE. Looks like I will have to return to Simply Shelby on the 12th as she is having a 12 Day of Christmas event (I’m assuming it starts on the 12th though) and even though I moan about my invent I can make more space for her stuff. Don’t worry if you’re useless at hunting like me because the note said she will make it super easy. I did get to see what she has on offer esp for this Christmas time and lots of tempting things there.
I’ve had a little bit of free time this morning because I have things to do, places to be, paperwork that can’t be ignored, boo hiss and so my time is limited but yet again temptation struck and I dropped all my decorating to go grab this outfit.
Remember my post with that adorable cropped winter sweater from Egoxentrikax, just scroll back a couple of post, and when I saw these pants from the Alter shop I had to get them not just because I think they will go with that sweater but it seems ages since I last had free or in this case bargain priced jeans.
The jeans, jacket and shoes are all in the Alter shop but you have to join the 3 different groups to get them but only the TeleportHub group costs and at 10Lds it’s a piddling amount. Don’t worry the LM takes you right to all 3 gifts and the different group invites and just there as well.
PS Don’t worry as tomorrow I head up into the loft and haul down my RL Crimbo Deccies and my RL house gets it’s own Christmas makeover. If you’re on your own or only have a small close group of friends and don’t feel the Christmas spirit still do it, do it for yourself. String up some lights, get a cinnamony smelling candle, put out those tacky Christmas ornaments and start shopping for an ugly sweater because you’re doing this for yourself not anyone else.
I decided to KISS (keep it simple stupid) this morning as I’m having so much fun decorating my SL home but I spotted a very bright red knitted dress which is the POE gift from a shop called Maci I thought what a great outfit to do a quick post as I’m working on my home, and I’ve also changed the sim setting to what you can see.
But I couldn’t find it but what I did find was that upstairs on the floor in the corner of a couple of rooms are Group Gifts and this headdress is one of them. I do rather like this very traditional look and if I had been able to find the POE gift dress it would make a really Christmassy lookI’m back working on my house until I get tempted by something else because I’ve seen POE gifts I want for my home so you will see them popping up.
