A Quickie.(Freebie).

A really lovely gift from The Two Moons Garden Center of a windmill.

I was happy with this shot as you can clearly see the water troughs, the lighter patch of grass and those whispy pampas grasses are also all part of this landscaping item.

In total 19 prims which isn’t actually bad when you see the texturing and detailing you get and yes it’s FREE and no it’s NON mod LOL.

Lots of lovely new stuff at this landscaping shop, I did notice a very interesting raining effect and a big spooky Halloween build.  If I remember correctly, although you can buy and create your own personalised landscaping from individual plants and props but if you’re a lazy gardener then this is the place to buy fully planted scenes for your home.  I didn’t really have much time once I’d grabbed these and snapped but I’ve left my AV over at the Two Moons Garden shop and when I get back inworld I will be having a proper mooch around.  I don’t know if I will buy anything as our sim is packed solid but I did spot houses on the TP board and I can’t really remember looking at them before.

OK Nuff said.

PrimTastic

It swirls and turns over my home.

Snapshot_002This beauty comes from Artic Greenhouse which is a greenhouse packed with amazing works of floral art. From fat red roses to whispy babies breath, single stemmed flowers to pots packed with them.  Some items such as this ivy ball are highish in prims (25) but they’re awesome and worth it but fear not a good wander around here and there is plenty of items much lower in prim that can create a real focal point in your home.  The Abstract Ivy Ball is hanging from the ceiling and it only costs 45Ls!! In fact this is a more than reasonably priced shop.

TreeThe have a great selection of such low primed and reasonably priced trees that I couldn’t resist this Hawthorne I’ve taken this photo with my usual SL setting so you can see how good it looks but it looks even better inworld and if you use Windlight it’s awesome. Only 95Lds for 3 (Faith says 2prims)Prims even better.

There are 2 Portals for you to pop though and you must check out the Jungle skybox it’s outstandingly unique and beautiful.

“Persnickety=Fussy about small details” is what one dictionary translates it as which as it happens suits this shop “Persnickity” completely because close up or from a distance these items look great.

Now I have a confession because I’ve had so much stuff from Persnickity in my invent just waiting to be blogged but I’ve not known where to start because basically for garden and home there is everything you need and it’s got everything I like such as attention to details, low prims and low price.  I’ve got everything from a Victorian love sofa, blender, plastic laundry basket that’s so realistic it’s a shock and the best ever sim stuffers.

To me “sim Stuffers” are those plants that have amazing depth to them even though they’re seriously low primmed. When trying to work out how to show you this I decided just to do a few close-ups so you can see the amazing texturing.

HasselA 2 primmed rose bush.  Close up and the next one is in full.

Hassel14Not only is it one of the best low primmed plants I’ve found but it’s only 35Lds! 2 Prims and copy! Lots of her items are copy but not all.  Hassel 8Vivid colours, great depth and so pretty.

Hassel 7All of these photos were taken with the same settings (nams) which is very similar to midday if you don’t use Windlight.

Snapshot_058Plenty of grasses, bushes, trees from the more realistic to the vivid. A thick wall climbing ivy for only 3 Prims.

Hassel6Bubble hearts so cute and still only a single prim.

I’ve not even started on the home furnishings but the lovely dressing table and chair are a prime example. Shabby Chicness galore.  Kitchen wares, beds, baskets, Cabbage rose textiles,  living room sets all with that Shabby Chic charmingness.

Tor Scifi Rezzable

Sorry last photo I promise but this is 2 of the 6 prim beech woods together and nestled in the middle is Faiths tent inc her washing line.  I also had a fiddle with Windlight but it was mainly to show how even if you have the smallest of plots or the biggest of sims you can use her excellent low primmed garden items to pack it out.  Every time I pop back here I find new stuff.  She has the best fat leaves Hosta plants out and now I’ve noticed in the back area she has a Rezzer so now if you need a home to place all your items in and in keeping the with Cottagy theme you can find it all here.

She has so much up on the Marketplace but make sure to pop inworld as well because you can hop on an egg and go for her Egg Hunt.  Hidden are 5 Big Fat Gold covered eggs with fun free stuff.

SQEEE Alert!

polak-hassel[1]revised

Faith knows I love all things rattie or in this case mousie and I just couldn’t resist this adorable little piece of sqeeness.  A tiny little mouse on his own kite.  Although it looks as though he’s just about to fly away….

ph[1]revised

..if you look closely through the grass blades you can see his little friend is holding onto the kite string  keeping him tethered to the ground.

The little mouses are mouse size which makes it so cute.  The mouse on the land is standing on his own little pile of rocks and grass which blends well into the landscaping.  It’s cute little things like this dotted around your home and land that make just that extra special touch.  I got this from The Designer Warehouse for a 100Lds but make sure to check out Pattye Caproni shop Sleepy Hollow Farms Home and Garden Designs. I’m particularly impressed with the flower boxes that are designed to hang on banisters and railings and if I had a banister to hang one from I would buy them for sure.

Oh Sakura….sakura

You know how sometimes…someone does something so nice for you…and it just totally makes you smile and your heart feel all glittery? Wellll…the other day…I popped over to Zigana at its new location because there was an item that I had been meaning to buy and hadn’t had a chance..I arrived and wandered about for a bit,enjoying the new place,exploring..etc..and the thing I had wanted to buy..was no where to be seen *frown*..Soo I sent a note to the creator  Nalena Fairey and asked if I could get this item..she said it was olddd and maybe…she might not sell it anymore…I was sad,it would be such a perfect “thing” to complete my SL home and I had just the place for it..all saved and waiting…

and then…a box arrived…*gasp* and it was there…in my hands…I was stunned at the generosity…and broke into a big big BIG smile of pleasure..so I placed that “thing” and stood back to admire it…and gaze upon its beauty..how perfect it looked..but…you know..what made it so much more …was the sweetness of the gesture behind its arrival in my home…thank you Nalena x

If you’re looking for some pretties for your home…go to Zigana…enjoy the area thats been created around the store..it is truly stunning,wander the store and see the flowers & grasses.I have just bought the patches of lillies for my garden,they look superb!..and the rugs that I can’t seem to stop buying ! If you look verrrrry hard you might find a few gifts also …
