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.

Updating RL.(Dollarbie).

Yup guess who’s back.

I’ve been waiting for Faiths return for ages as I’ve had this sky sign floating on my side just waiting for her return lol.  Very appropriate, for the upcoming Halloween season of course.

Those “Flying Monkeys” do actually fly around.

Super impressed with this Dollabie from the Antique Artistry Marketplace shop.  I also bought the Victorian clothesline and again super impressed.  Now yes for the price and prims these are basic but actually in a good way if you know what I mean?  I’ve linked you to the shop and not just to this sign and there are a lot of Dollarbies for you to check out.

As for “Updating RL” that’s true.  We’re finally getting a much-needed improvement done to our home which is going to take the best part of the week, if not all of it, I should be free to SL even more as the chances of me doing any paid work has gone out the window.

So being able to SL more is the good side the bad side is my poor little mouse has died! Obviously, I’m talking about my computer mouse, I use a vertical one which is supposed to be ergonomically designed to work best with the human hand and it does I LOVE(D) that mouse but now it’s deader than my hopes and dreams. I’m having to use a spare basic one which quite frankly is a pain in the ass.  So I’ve ordered a replacement mouse and God/Amazon willing it should be here by Wed and until then in RL I will curse and berate this basic one.

Got enough of these.(Dollarbies).

I seem to be growing a fine crop of mushrooms in my RL back garden and I actually LOVE seeing them poking their way through the grass.

So far I’m still floating around in my ghost sheet and I decided to hunt/haunt down where I got it from and it’s a shop called Hanaya but it doesn’t seem to have an inworld shop anymore which is how I ended up on its Marketplace shop.

This little table/chair set is a Dollarbie.

A really good adult AV size and each item is 2 prims. You can mod them and I shrank one of them down to a really small size and then sat on it which is how I found out that if you do that then the mushroom instantly returns to its full size.  So if you shrink these down and scatter them around your home/sim then you have instant secret seats just by sitting on them.

Since I’m already logged into the Marketplace I may have a mooch around there and hopefully I will find something new…and free of course.

PS.  The Ghost costume worn in my last post is for sale in the Hanaya MP shop but it does come with a price tag.

I treated myself. (90Lds).

My part of the sim is a bit like a mini farm and of course, every farm needs a dirty old tractor.

Even though I already have a tractor this beauty is only 90Lds (I might have to double-check it but I’m about 99% sure it was 90 and 100% sure it was under 100Lds) and only 7 prims so it was a no brainer for me.  It does come with some rather good poses ie repairing it, driving (although this is not a drivable item).

This is a B-Made item.  This is a shop you may remember me mentioning because although as yet it’s not a massive shop I think I’ve managed to purchase most of whats on sale and I’d actually called in just to see if there was anything new to tempt me and as you can see there was.  To get this though you will have to head to the Flourish event, which happens to be on the same stunning sim but it’s easier to use my LM to the event.

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

Let me bore you.(Freebies).

Yet another post about something I mentioned in a previous post.

This is supposed to be a “Lady Gaga” pose but this isn’t about me it’s about the backdrop and the black square.

Most of you won’t find this interesting but if you take pictures in SL you will find this gift very handy.

I won’t bore the tits off you about the details apart from it’s free and it comes with a very easy to use Hud which you need to play with it to appreciate it.

This comes from the Andika shop.  Although this shop has poses, and I’ve tried them all, it the AMAZING food decor I think most of us know it for.

I don’t think I’ve shown you the other freebie which is a plate of Blueberry pancakes but I definitely know I haven’t shown you these sweet orange treats.  One-click and you get a wearable version and although not perfect the eating AO is still one of the best in SL.

So pop over to Andika shop grab the sweet treats and the photo tool and have fun.

PS.  I should have thought about changing my settings to allow for shadows because I know my computer can handle them and it would have made the pictures of the backdrop/light more effective but what’s done is done so just think of me casting a shadow.

Total randomness. (Dollarbie & Freebie).

I’m doing what I love to do best and that’s eating and of course random TPing in SL which is how I ended up at the PPC (Prim Pile Creations) shop and this “Around the Grid” hunt prize.

You can just pay 25Lds and buy it but trust me the hint is simple enough for even me to find it and that way it only cost 1Ld.  It’s obviously the skeleton but it does come linked to the chair and there is a patch of grass under it.  YES, EDITABLE…oh I just love that.  TBH as it is and esp for only 6 prims it makes a great item on it’s own but then again you could remove the chair and pop him/her onto one of your own chairs.

Then I went back to LM grab and yet again I’d almost missed another freebie which is this Group Gift.

Because I knew the skeleton was editable I had my fingers crossed and YES this too is editable…I need to get a life as I get way too excited over things in SL being editable lol.

You can strip everything off the top of this tray table or just pick and choose what you like.  A really nice piece of furniture.

BTW The LM takes you to the middle of the sim but the building with these in are just in front of you, just follow all the special deal markers on the ground.  You will also see a rug, not free otherwise I’d have shown you it, but I was rather taken with its patchwork textures.  Once I’ve finished lunch and do another post I’ve LM’d this shop to return to as it’s new to me but not new to SL.
