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

I’m BORED! (Freebies).

Which is how I ended up at Apple Fall.

Lots of us by now know that the owner of Apple Fall has a sneaky way of treating us and tempting us to buy things at the same time because scattered around his shop are FREEBIES which you have to find for yourself.  You simply hover your mouse pointer over something and the magic “0” pops up. The Apple Fall hidden freebies ARE shop quality and once he’s changed them they’re reset with a price tag so it’s one of those shops you need to keep on popping into and having a wander around to see if there is something new which has had its price tag reduced to “0”.

Because his intention is to get us walking around the shop looking at everything I’m not going to tell you where the new freebies are but I will give you a couple of hints. This rusty planter is obviously not an indoor item and the other hint is that you don’t have to go far for your first freebies.  There is also a small selection of Group Gifts AND remember if you need a building/barn for your sim/home then the one to the left of where you TP in, the Hatton Barn, is still FREE.

Creeping Pays. Just an update & a little bit spend y& reminder of freebie.

Because I am obviously addicted to SL and spend way too much time inworld I sometimes come across issues with vendors ie things not set for sale, group invites not working, borked LMs etc Which brings me back to a recent post about a shop called B-Made and their new Group Gift.  The LM was dumping our sorry asses into the river but now, Woo Hoo, it takes you right to the entrance.

Anyhow when I do find an inworld issue I always drop the seller a little note as I just think they would prefer to know rather than not and end losing any potential sales all because of an easy to fix issues. I NEVER expect anything in return but in this case, Ben Lev the owner/creator of B-Made sent me a 200Ld GIFT CARD!  Then he even upped it by another 29Lds so I could buy this set.

Obviously, I’ve just clicked and snapped them as they are in the shop for the simple reason that I won’t be using these till we change our sims season.  I’m going to turn my side into what I hope is something resembling a British coastal Quay scene and these old crumbling concrete columns are just perfect.  Not only in their design and texturing but even the largest piece is just 1prim!

Honestly, as I’ve mentioned I have already bought 4 things and I was 100% going to return at the end of my month’s enforced cheapness to buy the pack as at 229Lds for this quality and uniqueness it’s worth it.

Also even if you don’t want to visit the shop still go for the sim, it’s so well landscaped that even though there are shops on it it’s a perfect backdrop for some picture posing.

PS. If you can’t remember the Freebie I’m putting the link to that post here as well as the updated LM.

With Dread.(Freebies & Bargains@The Wash).

I dreaded going to the wash because there is usually so many bargains all those bargains cost me a fortune and this time history was almost repeating itself because I spotted 3 things which I almost clicked and bought but I resisted and instead grabbed all the GIFTS!

It’s not often there are freebies at this event because of the superb bargains but there are plenty of little blue gift boxes set out on the stalls.

This is the first box I opened and it’s a “Classic SL Design”. I’ve grabbed and binned many of this style but in this case, the colours sing to me.  Obviously, the windlight/facelight and editing have affected the colours but it’s beige with a slight satin sheen and a touch of gold to the frill and I love it.  It comes in many fits and 2 versions, this is the V2 version.  In the same gift box is a freebie for them but TBH by that time in RL the sun is blazing and I lost all interest in the details lol.

So I can’t tell you which stall this came off or even why there are gifts set out for us and instead of logging back in I’m putting on my RL baggy clothes, slapping on the sun cream, making myself a mug of coffee and a crisp sandwich (go on try it you won’t regret it) and I’m going to sit in the sun and remind myself of how it’s the simple things in life which really mean the most.

Cheap nasty trash.

I’m off out RLing today so I thought I’d do a very quick post of some really interesting decor items I picked up last night.

Yes, I have quite a few wells, pumps etc but this one is perfect for my back yard. 50Lds and only 1prim for the whole thing.  Great texturing and detailing even down to the old dry leaves in the bottom of the well.

I also picked up this tray of rusty old tin.

Again 1 prim and only 20Lds.  Actually, I wish I’d checked the Marketplace shop as there are sets of this sort of junk for only 60Lds.

I’m giving you both the inworld shop and the marketplace shop and I suggest you visit both but for different reasons.  The marketplace shop shows clearly the items for sale while the inworld shop is a ragtag of jumbled up mess but the inworld shop is based on the “The Great Fissure” sim.

OK, What I want you to do to when or if you go to the inworld shop, is go to your maps and check out this and the neighbouring sims.  Then I want you to fly around them all.  These sims have been up and running since I was created in SL.  They’re for people who want to Roleplay and also for people who don’t want to Roleplay lol.  These sims make amazing scenarios for roleplaying and it is encouraged but they have been created for people to come to take pictures, relax, join in with others or sit on their own navel-gazing.  The only thing that is asked of you is to not bother people, keep your danging bits covered and NO weapons. I do know that at one place you can get free weapons to use if you wish to have a “Barney” which is Geordie slang for a fight and of course clean up anything you have rezzed but for roleplay sims they’re so relaxed it’s very much a case of “you do you boo”.

No beach? No Problem!

I came across this brill beach scene on the market place yesterday from CEBO Buildings. You could use it as a summertime backdrop for all your bikini snaps, it is modify also – so perhaps have a go at editing it. Add stuff of your own etc – however it does come with everything you see here. Also brill for a beach if you don’t have one – I’ve got mine in the sky above my studio platform – and just $125L .
