Muted! (Oodles of FREEBIES).

You shouldn’t need me to tell you to go to the Gacha Garden Event as you should know by heart now by how amazing it is for the gifts set out and so many tempting things in the Gachas but if you need a reminder here it is.

GET YET EFFING AV ARSE OVER THERE!

It makes a nice change that you don’t actually have to do the usual rush job as this event goes on till the 31st of this month so plenty of time to stroll around and treat yourself to not just all the freebies but also some of the Gacha items and guess what?  I WON 3 RARES IN A ROW!  Having said, shouted, that, the other items which turned out to be common were just what I was hoping for so I was more than happy.

Although I’ve only just unpacked 2 items I can see from the titles there seems to be a lovely mix of decor and accessories and even though the first item I opened I binned I shoved the lovely delivery box it came in in my folder for gift boxes/decor items. This thick fog is the second gift I opened and comes in a pretty Dragonfly rezzer and is simply controlled with a “fog on, fog off” command.

So this is where I’ve left me, in my house unpacking and sorting out the pressies.  I’ve muted everything and everyone so I can concentrate and instead of sitting outside in the glorious sun in RL I’m going to be hunched over a hot computer unpacking and sorting things out to feed my OCD….and watching some bids on eBay as well. LOL.

The Gacha Garden

I have it all! (FREEBIES)

Woah! So I finally got over to the Cosmopolitan event which turns out to be celebrating 5 years in SL and you know what that means?  Nope no cake but even better…OOODLES and OOODLES of gifties and even better the gifts are so good!

OK ignore the room I’m in as it’s actually a Rare Gacha win from this event, yes I do spend Lindens lol, but the rest is all freebies and I was having a very pleasant time just rezzing stuff, trying the clothes on and of course seeing what is editable and then I get the heads up that this event only has a few more days left to go!!!

So I snapped some basic piccies in my Nams setting of what I already had out so you can see the quality and yes this shabby chic/romantic fireplace is editable LOL.

It’s obvious whats what in this picture but if you don’t need any new decor items don’t worry, shoes, boots, clothes, nails, jewelry etc are all there as well and from well-known SL shops.

The dress in the top picture is from one of my fav SL shops and I loved this metallic with sheer bits outfit as well.  There was a pair of jeans as well as a halter top that I had briefly tried on and that top is a keeper for me when I refind it.

I will be logging back in-world soon to continue with my happy unpacking and sorting out but since this event is in its last few days I didn’t want to delay telling you about it.  So over all really you need to just go and join the Cosmopolitan group, invite in the entry, and click away as there are so many gifts and so many lovely surprises just waiting for you.

Update because I’ve found out we have till the 13th to get grabby so still a reasonable amount of time but at the same time don’t linger.

Cosmopolitan (Behind you and up the steps).

Pick it up pick it apart.(Freebie).

Even though my SL time was running out, don’t you just love it when I do a quickie cos there is less blabbing on LOL, so once I’d taken the picture of this rather good planter in my garden I had to TP to my studio and RIP IT APART!

As it comes it’s 1o prims but since this is copy/mod you can shrink it or as you can see it can be edited down to its basic build.

These come from Whims A Plenty and are out front with another GG and that’s a bird house.

I’ve left my AV stood outside this shop as the name and the shop just doesn’t look familiar to me and although there won’t be any more gifts inside I’m going to have a nice wander around later to see if there is something new for my home/sim.

OK that’s it see ya’s all later.

Whims A Plenty

Works of Art.(Freebie n Dollarbie).

As soon as I get an update note from Loordes of London I always read it because I love the clothes and shoes and often they’re on at special events and even more importantly at special prices.  As it happens the lady who owns Loorde’s has a RL sister who owns Storax Tree and her shop is packed with home and garden items and like her Sis, she too has a lot of offers/discounts etc on offer which leads me to this painting.

The reason I had to get this is because when I set up my new home (Hardwick House)  I need big and bold art work so this with its illuminating light just hits the spot, geddit? LOL.  The painting and light are linked and still come to just 2 prims.

This is the size it rezzes at but I spotted that there is a resizer script so I’m gonna guess you can make it bigger or smaller depending on the size of your home.  Although this is a “Hunt” prize you don’t actually have to hunt for it as the LM takes you to a room where all the events and hunts that are going on are on the wall for you to see, so just find the poster for the “Masters of Style” hunt and buy it for a single Ld.

For those who want something a bit more modern then you might just have spotted the star shaped light at the top of the picture.

This is a new gift from a shop called Goose but this is the SL frees & offers(sic) free group gift.  A simple 1 prim star wall light, or just have it floating around your home and sim.

There is a lovely GG set out for the Goose group members and that’s only 50Lds to join so check that out.  I only scanned the note that was sent out but the long and short of it is that the person who owns Goose has been busy in RL but is now back and getting Goose back up to speed.  Goose is yet another Home and Garden shop packed with delightful stuff for your SL home.

Sorry, I am a bit vague with shop/designers names in this post but time is short.

Dirty little stopper upperer!(Freebies).

Yes, I actually logged into SL at about 2AM just to see if I could grab the last remaining items from the Apple Fall sale and now I’m done.  Today is the last day so I will assume that you have some time to get in and grab and remember everything is priced between 25-75Ld and that inc the buildings(and my new home when I get around to it).

Then, since I am an SL addict, I popped over to the Hashtag event and it’s its Birthday and we all know what that means…CAKE AND JELLY!  Sadly no but lots and lots of FREEBIES.

I only grabbed about a quarter of what was there before I gave up and TPed home and started to unpack and of course started to bin away.  As usual, a lot of the small things but that’s not a bad thing at all.  I’m just not a tattoo or jewelry wearer so more often than not I bin it without unpacking it.  I like to just grab a load of stuff from a place to get the sense of the goodies and yes there are goodies to be found.

But as soon as I unpacked this bucket of flowers it was the “money shot”.

A Beeee a cute little Beee LOL.  Non-edit but copyable.  The only reason I would edit this is I would take copies of those gorgeous flowers and scatter them around my garden but as a stand alone potted plant this is just excellent.  I will do a quick log in to find the name of the stall/shop I found this one on at the Hashtag event so you can just go and grab this but as I said there are oodles of gifts on the stands and there is nothing nicer than grabbing a whole load of stuff and then plonking yourself down and working through them and finding the pieces which make fab additions to your inven

UPDATE. I think the bucket of flowers is off the “Dreamland Design” stall which is not a name I’m familiar with so woo hoo thats a mainshop for me to check out later.  If I’m wrong about the stall just GRAB ALL of the gifts and have fun finding it.

Then I decided to quickly check the Dreamland MP shop and found even more quality Freebies.

They turned out to be just as good as I had hoped but since SL time was running out I’ve just slapped 2 of the 3 freebies down and quickly took a snap.  I saw some window boxes in the MP shop but since these come with a price tag, cheap at 50Lds though, I will when I log back into SL pop over to the inworld shop to check them and the whole shop out.

This is why sometimes a quality freebie works as it gives people a taste of what you have and they might just come over and spend Lindens in your shop.

Dreamland Design Inworld Shop

Free Rocks(& Dollarbie).

This is what I missed, I knew there was something else that I had grabbed from the Moon Sha shop yesterday but I just couldn’t remember what it was but thanks to one of our readers who gave me the heads up and here they are.

These I have taken just in our usual sim setting, for some reason, it went to Linden Labs standard setting yesterday which isn’t a patch on the ones you can choose from Windlight and thats why yesterday my pictures were so dull I had to brighten them.  Anyhow, I think you can see the stunning quality.

You get 3 Piles of perfect stones and each pile is just a single prim.  I can’t wait to scatter these around our sim so a big thanks to Brinlea for the heads up BUT she talks about Free rocks at the Redeux and these ones come from the Moon Sha shop (as well as other freebies I’ve not mentioned) so I don’t know if it’s the same rocks or even better more rocks! I will deffo be checking that later as if they are different styles then even better but if they’re the same shapes no great loss as this set is a great gift already.

Now for a nice little Marketplace Dollarbie and a chance to torment Faith.

Cool, cool water!  It’s so HOT and I’ve said it a few times but I live in the cold wet North East and Faith lives in the sunny and HOT South and she is suffering.

This is a simple 2 piece, skirt and top, very rock and roll even though the FurtaCor title says “Hippy”.  Mesh sizes and separates.

PS Remember this IS Tuesday and this is when a load of shops in SL has items set out priced at only 25Lds.  Most of these shops are in the Gor/Gorean/Medival/RP/Roleplay etc style but you would be stooopid if you didn’t check them out.  Some of the best shops in SL often have a reduced item out and although I usually ignore the shops that specialise in clothing I get so many home and garden items from this weekly event I never miss it.  The list is usually sent to me through one of the shops I’m subbed to and I think Moon Sha is one that sends out the notice of what it has on offer plus a full list and LM for the other shops involved in this event.

Moon Sha

Every Tuesday!(Freebies).

“Moon Sha” (that stands for Moon Shadow) is a shop I visit almost every Tuesdays as it’s one of the shops that often has a 25Ld Tue offer out and every time I go I see the wall of freebies and think I must come back to grab em and I don’t but today I did.

OK, disclaimer because even though our sim setting was the same as always the pictures turned out to be so dull I’ve had to lighten them a bit so you can see the details.

This house/hovel you may possibly have seen in our blogg before but that will have been years ago so I’m happy to reblog this.  Still, excellent texturing etc even after all this time and OMGERD 4 prims!  Although you can use it as intended ie as a home for those prims you could create a little Medival Village to house all your serfs in LOL.

It’s a single room with slightly raised bed platforms on either side and not a lot to it and then I unpacked the fire and all of a sudden the dark inside of the house was lit up.

2 of these items are actually last months and this month’s gifts and since I know the building and that cute rug are the oldies it means that either the fire, bales of hay or if you squint then you might make out the little tray of cookies on one of the bales are the new ones.

That massive and brightly lit fireplace is only 1 prim which you would never guess it if you didn’t prim check like me.  Although even at it’s biggest it fits into this house you can actually mod it but I can see it fitting into a sky loft, modern house etc pretty darn good and it gives off a great glow to the room.

I can’t remember the prims for the bales but I can’t imagine it being more than 1-2 (they’re linked and unmod) and as soon as I get bacin worldld they’re heading out to where I keep all my 4 legged friends.

Special note is that the cookies are actually trans, but not copy, and so if you have a sweetheart you can send them this lovely treat.

Moon Sha is a shop I know well because as I said I pop in every Tuesday if I see they’re on the 25Ld Tue list as even though this is a shop that caters for the Gor, Medival, RP etc field I have over the years picked up so many things for my own home.

PS I think the Moon Sha shop is on a shared platform and when you TP in just turn to your left and you will find it.
