All you can eat for $50L

A little while ago I blogged about a free item from Maya’s, I was so impressed with her prefabs at the store I joined the subscribo to keep informed. Most all of the builds are $50L! Loads of styles , stores, homes and sim decor – brilliant price. I got a notice yesterday about a new build so dashed over to see it – but there isn’t a rezzer to do so – sooooo I read all about it on their market place store and decided “what the heck” its only $50″ and bought it. Dead chuffed I did, it’s really really lovely. Sooo above is the exterior shot, there is an extended balcony out the back and of course the smaller cozy one at the front. The two trees are included as is ALL the furniture, lamps etc – bloomin good deal

Here is a little taster on whats inside, as you can see its deliciously furnished, even the lights vary from room to room. Some adorable little decor touches, you’ll also find a ladder that takes you upstairs to the bedroom – complete with bed etc. (You will receive both furnished and unfurnished versions).  If you do visit the inworld store, make sure to go upstairs and check out the group gifts .

Shade it

I had a notecard from Zinnias subscribo about a new item  “Verano” Draped Ceiling Decor  – popped right over and snapped it up! I’ve long been faffing about with my patio area at the back of our house – for uhm – two years? It’s never looked “lived in”, or complete but I thought this might work – et voila! Instantly transformed – homely shaded and inviting, all for $169, they are mod & copy so you can fit them perfectly and scatter them about freely. Various colours available and just 6Li.

You can see that I used three to shade the whole length of my patio and went with the red tone, it gives off a really nice comforting vibe and my patio is officially my fav place to hangout! Decided to get out my “La Chinesca” red lacquer table set to enhance the whole feel – had this for a little while and adore it. Loads of sweet animations, some come with props that are added to your hands and on the table – my cactus plants (in a gacha) ohhh and the chickens are also to be found in store!

Free delivery truck!

Ok you HAVE to get this truck! I mean, it’s not like I needed a truck, or really even wanted one – BUT – then I saw this at Dench Designs and suddenly – I did want a truck, I did neeeed a truck – infact I HAD to have this very truck! It’s totally delightful, vintage, shabby and cute. At just 5Li it wont snaffle up your prim budget , there is a doggy peering out of one window and an aged man driving – it even has the sound of the engine puttering. This is situated outside the front entrance to the store, no group to join just take – thanks Amanda ❤ (this item is free)

The Free, The almost Free & The cheap!

I was mooching around the market place last night and found this absolutely adorable little pouffe for just $1L by Maya. Its got couples and singles poses, some that attach props to your hands directly. Overall its done in chic grey & white tones but it is modifiable, so you could fiddle with it. Free is my nifty shifty dress by Neve, all mesh bodies and standard sizes included, plus a Hud with three alternative colour palettes. You can find this at the new round of Liason collaborative.

The Skyhome is by TA Hardware, such an amazing little treat for just $10L. Its only 2 Li anddd comes with a Hud that gives you four options for the view out of the window. Beautifully textured all around with a fake door at the rear just to make it even more homely. There are a few different designs of these at $10L plus some at $25L – check out the market place store. Isnt my radio just adorbs?! It’s by Kei spot and cost me one single Linden dollar. You actually get the version with the two birds on top canoodling plus plain ones- info:

“Radio comes in the four colours shown via texture change menu. Love birds version includes 7 love songs. The radio is copy/mod so add your own tunes as well. Bonus plain version serves as a parcel station tuner to set the music on your land.”

I picked up the deeelicious strands of lights at the new round of Collabor88, they are by half deer and you get a really big assortment of sizes and  types – well worth the $188L – look out for the floor pack too.

Big Discounts @ Home Whimsy

Another month another round of Home Whimsy yippeee! This is a small event so no lag fest, in fact I decided to peruse the stores on the sim as it was so refreshing not to get bogged down. %percent have a scrummy box of Sakura jellies for their item, the box rezzes closed, touch it and it opens, touch again et voila! A delicious jelly treat is in your hand to scoff. Just 2Li so you wot be afraid to scatter the boxes around – works for anyone who touches it . Little bit of background on this piece:

“These jellies are a desert common in Northern Japan around the hanami flower season. They are a single cherry blossom flower suspended inside a sweetened almost-solid jelly. The RL versions have a faded blossom, (due to the creation process,) but I kept the blossoms in mine brighter to match how they appear on the cherry blossom tree. “

I also nabbed this sweet tree from Lunar Seasonal Designs “Menu Driven Nest Seat in a Cherry Tree “, as you can see I’m lolling about rather nicely reading a book but there are lots of other poses too. Now I thought this was just a cherry tree – but it isn’t – oh no, you get a seasonal version, even snow! You can also change the seat textures and bark. With 50% off its quite the bargain for something you can leave out all year round.

It’s a shocker, I spent money!

I decided to pop over to cocoro Lemon’s shop Coco Designs to check out if there is any new gift/freebie’s but I didn’t even get past the entrance!  The reason being is this top, in the entrance of her shop is the demo, Link & LM for it and once I’d tried on the demo, read the link and followed the LM it turned into a costly but rewarding visit.

The top is amazing, it makes me HUM, I rarely buy clothes esp at full price because I spend my Lindens mainly on home and garden stuff but it hurts sometimes to try on something so good and have to debate “Tier fee & plants” or a kick ass bit of clothing and in this case the kick ass clothing won esp when you know that 100% of the proceeds goes towards charity.

Don’t get me wrong I’m a mad cat woman but I actually LIKE Pitbulls I think that when they’re raised by good and loving people in a responsible way you get a 4 legged friend who will act as companion and protector.  When raised by assholes you get assholes.  When you read of any dog that has gone wild you almost always find that there has been a history of neglect and or abuse by the owners…nope don’t even get me started or this will end up being a real downer of a post.

So all of the 250lds this top costs will go towards the charity.  TBH It’s a fair price for both a Coco Design top and a donation.  Another shocker is I actually donate to charity or sims which are open for all to use, obviously not a fortune but when I have some lindens spare I donate it makes me feel good but when you can donate, feel good and get a corker of a whatever then it’s a win-win.  I say “whatever” because there is more than just this top at this event.  It’s not a massive event just the right size to have a nice mix of clothes, hair, decor (and I’m eyeing up a Victorian fence gate set for I believe 175Lds) some cute stuff and some edgy stuff, scraped knee’s tattoos etc.

One thing to note is that this top only comes in 3 mesh bod sizes,Hourglass, Maitreya & SLink and no alpha, so if you don’t use a mesh bod try the demo first and chances are you will have plenty of alphas already in your invent to be able to utilise this top for your own bod.

PS, Of course, I had to go get that Lemonade trolly Faith has just done a post about and of course I had to rezz it and rezzed rather than worn as it should be it’s only 5 prims.  Plus I’m going to put the link to C…shop as I’m heading back there to see if I can redeem my CH label and find a new freebie.

PPS the raggy bits are the shorts I’m wearing under it and not the top plus I’m at Coco’s now and if you really love the design but not the colours then she does have this top in her “New” section in other colours, obviously the money you pay for those won’t be donated and I have to say there is a pale blue one which ARGH I would have loved but I would still have bought this blue one in anycase.
