Get your Summer residence sorted

Its been a while since I’ve seen Zinnia release a building and this was most definitely worth the wait. The Hacienda is such a magnificent build – with cool terraces, bright patio areas, and even an optional roof top pool! Low Li and the texturing really made me gasp with appreciation.

The hacienda has a gorgeous courtyard, rustic kitchen. Footprint is 20 by 24.

There is a demo up for you to mooch at the Swank event, and I suggest you do – under $400L for this – steal! Our sim is very cottage & country – I haz a sad it wont fit in , however I’m going to try to use it in heaps of photos as it will make a wonderful back drop !

The Cherry on the cake. (Freebies).

Time to log off and go do something else..DAMN!   The last LM I checked was for a shop called “Cherry House {{CH}}” and I remembered this because I got a really good decor gift of a bucket, only in SL do we get excited about getting a bucket because trust me if someone gave me a bucket as a gift in RL they would be wearing it!

No bucket in these pictures though as although that is still there, here are some other freebies which you may find more tempting.

The table with the lacy cloth, the pot and bowl set and flowers.

Those flowers, 1 prim, are so delicate and dreamy!  Everything is low primmed and really nice.  I’ve missed showing you a couple of other things ie the bucket, spoon and a really good set of string lights.

These gifts are to be found with the Gacha’s. They’re in obvious gift boxes and you do have to join the group but it’s free and I did notice a couple of lucky boards.

It was fate!(Dollarbies).

A few days ago I had been looking inworld for a shop and I couldn’t find it but because time was running out I shelved the idea of finding it till I had more time but today because of ImproLibra’s tip about the super builds on the MP I decided to check the MP out for any more bargains and freebies and I found the shop I had been looking for because it like the shop she linked me to is now on the MP only.

But first the pants.  Yes they’re very old blogged items but they’re such good quality that I think they deserve a reblog.  You get them from the Mels Store and they cost just a single Ld.  There is a couple of other Dollarbies in Mels very little MP shop and the dress and top were both really good but to me, the pants were total keepers so I already had them in my invent.  You can also see the shoes that I wore in my last post which was the lucky board win from S@bbia.

I have to give Faith credit for finding the shop “^upcycled^” first and everything in the shop costs just 1 Ld.  There is some clothing in the upcycled shop and the top I’m wearing is one of them.  You only get the Maitreya fit which is why I’m not doing a close-up, you will be able to see my back fat breaking through.  If you don’t mind a bit of breakthrough or have a Maitreya bod or the Alpha that will work with it then lucky you as you get a 12 cololurs/texture hud with it.

Ignore the deck chairs/parasol as they’re not from this shop but the upcycled shop is mainly furniture/decor/garden items.  It was the “Princess Poof Bed” that I’d kept for future use mainly as a prop for me but it’s really nice and comes with some texture options and lots of poses and some which come with props.

Gardening in SL(Freebies n Bargains).

I’ve just spent a lovely afternoon meandering in SL and picked up a few things to unpack and check out later but I found myself at this shop which made me spend Lindens!

You know me I’m a sucker for any sporty stuff and I so I happily snapped up this little yoga set which is one of the freebies at the LM given.

You get the 3 linked rugs, a bowl of joss sticks and a pile of rocks and I forgot to rezz the rocks.   2 nice yoga sequences and yes they’re real yoga moves and I do yoga, with a lot of grunting and a fear of farting.  There are more Freebies but I do remember showing you them, twinkling stars to lie on the ground and a headdress/horns made of branches.

This is the first thing I was tempted by.  50Lds for all of these pots and although I’m not 100% sure I’m 99% sure they’re copy.  Obv I already have a shocking amount of plants and planters but what I loved best was that although they’re all different they still go so well with each other.  I’m going to dot them around that patch of grass you can.

I’ve also moved 2 of them to this position but I’m not sure if they’re too fancy for my basic English cottage but I will make my mind up once I’ve finished faffing.  The smaller one of these 2 is actually lit and gives off a great and natural light..love it.  Will look great in a garden setting add a bit of depth.

UPDATE

AW Damnit! So I logged inworld to LM grab and spotted another 50lds offer which is a set old chimney stacks being recycled as planters.  Very similar to the ones I already have but deffo more in keeping with the English style of my home and so guess what?

Yup, I bought them but at only 50Lds cheap enough even for me.  Plus I also spotted this balloon which is another GG and I have an SL balloon addiction as well as a suitcase, umbrella, plants, shoes and poses addiction!

I feel bad.(Freebies).

It’s either too cold, too wet and today too hot to clean out my greenhouse but I’m just fishing for excuses because I’m really a lazy cow.

It’s a bit like my SL garden in front of my house in that there is a patch of land with not much in it.

A really nice 2 prim planter and nope you can’t edit it because you know I would have ripped it apart for those flowers.  You get 2 options this summer one and a winter one which is just the planter but with a mound of snow on top.

This little candlestick is actually animated and gives off a really nice glow so pretty unusual.

Both gifts and another which is a flower and I’ve shown that one to you before but it will make a nice surprise if you can’t remember it or have never seen it are to be found at the  “Never Totally Dead” shop.

A simple start.(Freebie).

It’s gonna be an “Instagram” day for me.  I’ve changed from my old t-shirt and baggy PJ bottoms to my posher staying in a hotel/hospital PJ’s and I’m snuggled up on my chair with a pussycat on my lap watching as the snow drifts down outside. Later on, I will throw seeds out for the birds and I will watch them with my cat as he glares at them through the window yakking away with bloodlust, fun times lol.

Till then here is a little giftie. I picked this up from the Imeka shop with a couple of other GG’s.  For some reason out of the 6 gift boxes on the floor only 2 of them actually contain GG’s and it does cost a Linden to join but if you check out the Imeka MP shop there are some other freebies inc a very good drink of iced coffee and some ballet poses.  Although this is a small shop it’s full of tempting Gacha’s, poses, wearables etc.

Time for a break.(Freebie).

Doh, not only did I forget to prim check I didn’t even pick up a copy of this simple but quality gift from Apple Fall!  You know Apple Fall is known not only for its stunning designs but also more than reasonable prims so I think a build like this will be very low primmed.

This is the New York Apartment which is easy to understand when you look out of the window.  To get this you have to use the TP just outside of the mainshop doorway and TP to the demo and you will see the large price tag on the wall but it’s been set to ZERO Lindens.

There is also a Golden Apple Hunt going on at Apple Fall, you have to get the Hud, just at the LM, and wear it as you search for the apples.  When you have the full set you can score a super prize….I’m guessing that last bit as I still only have 5 of them so far but it’s time to return to RL.

PS. I promise next post will be wearables.
