Sorry NOT free. (Info only).

Since Faith has found some great freebies I decided that today I would check out old LM’s which is how I came to the M&M Creations shop and WOW.

I will say that the photos are NOT of the same building, I ended up taking dozens of pictures of all the buildings and couldn’t chose which one to show you so in the end I decided I’d show you just a hint of what you will find at this shop.

This is a “Full Perm” shop which also has full builds/homes out for sale and I love each and everyone of them.

I’ve just spent a most pleasant 45 mins wandering and camming around some of the best “themed” homes.

I say “themed” in the sense they have a rustic/RP/Gor/village/mansionesque feel. I really do hate to “label” the style of these builds as I think they have something for everyone. The attention to detail is just excellent from the soot stained fireplaces to the hidden room with marble seats etc.

The quality of texturing is second to none, that big grinding wheel turns around and behind it is a built in stone sink.

The person who built these builds has such a brilliant eye for details. Take for example this stone sink and the more modern window which opens to a deep window sill and you can see the older outside window frame. Anyone who lives in the UK or has visited an old castle knows that the walls are feet thick and have often when they’ve been modernised have a new window frame inside.

Every home and every room has something which makes you go “oooh, what a great idea”.

I was actually going to buy and live in this split level cottage once.

You may remember at the begining of this year we completely stripped our sim back, got a new terrain map, and then rebuilt from scratch and this build was going to be my new home. Even though I didn’t go for it in the end I can still see how it would have looked. I won’t tell you the prims because I must be wrong as they’re just way too low so I’m not sure about them.

The builds are split over 2 levels so check the ones on the ground and then hop on the TP for this cottage and some more builds.

Now for the downside, price tag. Sometimes I love a home so much I buy it even though I know that the chances are I will never ever use it, just knowing I have it in my invent is enough but although I really do think you’re getting your moneys worth I can’t justify it in this case as we are talking about 1000++++Lds.

However I can’t stress enough that you are paying for such great quality and attention to detail and remember, Christmas is around the corner so why not treat the RL and SL you a dream home to live in as a Christmas Treat.

PS. Don’t rush over and buy as I’m going to do another post on homes. As much as I hope you fall in love this these buildings I’d hate for you to see my next post and then have “buyers remorse”.

All you can see – $99L PROMO

Im always stalking the Inverse store on the market place – awaiting their latest intro offer on their newest homes. This one is called “Porto” and I really like it. You’ll need to hurry if you want it as they are pretty fast shelving the offer and then its full price – I got this yesterday and its just a 48 hour thing! You get three versions, unfurnished, furnished with shadows, furnished without shadows. (full furnished with shadows (262 LI) – full furnished without shadows (262 LI) – unfurnished (143 LI)) I like to catch them on a promo then sift through the furniture and grab what I like for my own home – yes I am a scavenger. The build is lovely and as usual most of the furnishings come with menus with adult and PG animations. I wont write any more but the link is below so you can read all about it and grab it while you can.

Around The Grid 7 – Hunt

Always love this hunt – if you’re impatient – like me – you can just buy the prize of $25L – I had my miserly head on yesterday and determinedly struck out to find the gift from Loggin Off Homes. Hurrah I found it ! So for just $1L I had my paws on this rather fabulous Artists cabin. Its so well made and at only 29Li it wont break the prim bank either. Check the blog for all other participating merchants and clues to find the gifts.

Not too late.(25Ld Tue).

Tue is over but fortunately, this 25Ld Tue item is still out for us.

A “slave” chair which is so pretty I think this will fit into any home.  The slave poses are pretty standard, which by that I mean good but well known ie Nadu but the inclusion of a non-slave option is a brill idea.

I don’t often pose on furniture but I wanted to show that this is sized for a proper AV as it does look a bit small pet-sized in my first picture. Only 3 prims as well!

The chair also comes with a Hud and in the Krescendo shop you can try the hud and poses for yourself before you buy.  I don’t know how long this will remain out so I’d go now, just follow the bright arrow on the floor.

Remember as you walk down the corridor to pause at the end as there is a whole load of freebies for all and I spotted a couple of new things.  Home and Garden stuff only.

PS. There is an adjust for you to change your position but I was too lazy and I don’t think this bit of sinking is an issue.

Danger Noodle Hunt.(Mention of Freebies).

How could you not love snakes when they’re renamed as “Danger noodles”?

I’ve just had a pleasant time TPing here there and everywhere which is how I ended up at the big Medieval Fantasy Faire. I do know it’s been on for a while but I didn’t know there was a free hunt going on.  So I started to walk and pick up the little “Danger Noodles” on my way.

This is a big event so I’ve managed to get halfway through and I do believe there is a total of 33 gifts to be found, I’ve only found about 6 but I am giving the clothing shops a miss.

But I did treat myself to this from the Lunar Seasonal Designs shop because at 140Lds a bargain and I’m pretty sure I will use it not just as a backdrop but maybe even incorporate it into our sim when we change the seasons esp as it comes with a Menu which supposedly allows you to change a lot of the texturing.  But I’ve not had time to try it.

Because our sim in totally white and I did want to show you the scale I decided just to use one of the poses and take a picture of it as it is in the shop.  Will be logging back inworld later to finish off walking around and then playing with the menu for this and again at 140Lds a bargain.

Home Sweet Home (?)(Info only).

This is just a stunning rental sim but this post is just for info only and maybe to tempt you into becoming a renter in SL.

This little area is actually a small courtyard outside of someones home, the white door is their front door which I believe leads to their own inner courtyard.  TBH I didn’t cam or scan into peoples homes as I think it’s rude even if they’re not there and I’d certainly not take photos.

I’ve taken all of the pictures just in the sim setting and it does say that it’s seasonal so as dark as it is now when spring and summer comes along I can just imagine the whole sim bursting into light and colour but at this moment it’s darkness and foliage screams cold nights and hot chocolate. Obviously, you can play with the sim settings for yourself and choose whatever suits your mood so it doesn’t have to remain as it is in these pictures.

This is a courtyard area which is a hangout inc that welcoming coffee shop, on the right is a wall to yet another courtyard in front of a rental home which I believe is actually vacant.

There is a web site but it’s sadly years out of date and the LMs are now obsolete but I’ve found the LM to the rental board showing the vacancies and giving you the LM’s.  I’ve put 2 LMs one to where the rental office is and the other the courtyard but each time I come to this sim I find more areas of interest.

The rent boxes are also easy to find.  They’re just little “post boxes” on the front gates, entrances to the homes.

Again just look at the detailing in the landscaping.  This is the pathway leading to someones home.

It’s not all in the same sort of theme either, there is a seafront, this little harbour, an Italian themed pool all using buildings, decor and landscaping from the top shops in SL.

Here is the BUT, quality like this does not come cheap.  The rentals do vary in price but I personally do not think it’s unreasonable. Taking into account that they have used builds, landscaping and decor from only the top SL shops to make this whole sim stunning and on top of that the prim allowance is pretty darn generous if I hadn’t my own sim to play in I’d rent here in a HEARTBEAT!

Vita Camino or Giardini Di Vito are the people who have created this sim and also you can buy the landscape texturing from their MP shop and I will be doing that for our sim at some stage.

Bag this.(10Ld Gift).

Just a quickie.

A simple, wearable and in this case rezzable bag.  This is from the ASO shop, some really lovely and unique items in this shop and I did so a post about them recently, however, this is a Teleport Hub group gift.  That group cost you 10Lds but you may know I rather like this group as once you know what their advert/gift boards look like you see that many shops have a gift out just for this group and for the initial 10Ld joining fee I’ve scored a lot of goodies.  This bag does come with a nice pose but you know I prefer a nice rezzable decor item and at only 2 prims this is it.

UPDATE. Now I’m inworld LM grabbing I’m checking and yes I remember blogging the free to join group gifts for this shop but I’m heading off to check out the rest of the shops on this rather pretty shopping sim.
