Thank You. (Freebie).

Synnergy is not a free group, I think it’s 25Lds to join, and I am already in the group as it’s a backdrop/pose group and of course I use those sorts of things. It’s also how I spotted in the notice from Synnergy this FREE for ALL gorgeous backdrop.

A panel covered in poppies, ivy and berries and it rezzes as a wall for you to stand in front of it and snap away. Just so lovely and for all that detail and size it’s still only 18 Prims and now for the icing on the cake…COPY and MOD!

Oh my! so I did a quick edit and these 3 large clumps of ivy and berries are only 1 prim! I know I will be replacing the clumps of ivy on our sim with this much nicer patches when I can next log in.

I always really appreciate when a shop allows you to copy and edit an item as it just means that people can have a play around with something and make it more useful to them than maybe the original item was intended for.

BTW I’m not going to be checking out the Synnergy shop as I am too easily tempted and I know for a fact I will end up buying one of the backdrops and instead I’m going to check out the Full Perm shop that this item was created from.

Now, PAY ATTENTION! as this gift is a bit hidden but the Group notice does tell you where to look.  On the reception desk in the entrance are some icons ie Facebook, Blogotex etc and one of the icons is a gift box and you click on that and it’s sent to you.

Spring Spectaculum Hunt

Found this little hunt today – right in the centre as you land. You’re looking for treasure chests and they are not hard to find and cost absolutely nothing! This wisteria tree is by Lady’s Garden (and as I’m so juvenile I had a little giggle about that name) its 8Li and is a keeper for moi.

I also really liked this rose wreath by Delightful creations, just 2Li and plenty of rose colours included by touch. Its not one of those alpha type wreaths, lovely and 3d – kept for my home interior . Also clothes in the hunt – just nothing that suits my style but it might you !

Unsexy. (5Ld, 3Ld Hunt Prize’s & Cheap finds).

There is a hunt going on called “Fantasy Forest Hunt” and each prize is only 5Lds, as soon as I saw the one for the “The Artist Shed” I knew I had to have it.

Green and orange my fav colours.  The title comes from my misreading of the pose as I thought it said “unsexy” when in fact it said “unisex” and you do get only the 1 pose but I like it, it’s unfussy and works well.

There is another hunt going on in the shop which is easy to find and it costs just 3Lds. I will leave it as a surprise for you but I will say it’s an item of decor.

I’m not a fan of the layout of this shop as I don’t think it’s user friendly and you may miss bits out so make sure you explore it fully as it has not only great bargains but some new designs.  I treated myself to a bucket with a plant in it, 25Lds, and a classic wood picnic table for 50Lds.

Then I went hunting for another “Fantasy Forest” prize and found it……I’m on a roll.

This large pool/pond is about 64 prims and it is very much a statement item.  Non-mod and no sexy menu in it.  The LM I used to get to the Splintered Creations seemed to take me to an RP cowboy sim and I was about to TP out till I spotted on the ground and a signpost the way to go to find items for sale plus where the Hunt item has been hidden….check out the funny raccoons!

PS. If you’ve not got them then under the desk in the Artist Shed is a gift for us, click the gift box, and you get wearable/rezzable corndogs.

PPS.  It’s that little group of mushrooms that you’re looking for.

The Village Pond

It cant have escaped your attention that I am a massive fan of Dench Designs – especially if you’ve ever visited our home sim Dreamworks. Amanda Dench is from the UK and I think because of this I just somehow “connect” with her style. Its hard to find new items that I dont already own – but thankfully Amanda’s output means I usually find something I haven’t bought yet ! I was mooching yesterday on the look out for something to complete the vista of my new cottage garden. I just knew Id find something there that would fit right in. Wasn’t disappointed when I spied this “Village pond” – its just SO right for my new home! Its a whole focal point in one – the pond, the edging plants, the bench with its built in female, males and couples poses. If you click on the tree you get a menu for more items to add to the scene. I loved the swimming duck that quacks ! There are geese, a pheasant, fish and more ! Here I am sat enjoying my afternoon with a cuppa tea ❤ You’ll find this outside by the group gift (free to join group and a fantastic gift) $120L , Li depends on what you rez.

Behind the scenes.(Marketplace ONLY Dollarbies).

When I visit inworld shops I try to remember to also check out their marketplace shop as well because I know that sometimes people like to shop even when they cannot be inworld and in this case it paid off for me.

The Taikou shop has these out as Group Gifts in their inworld shop but the group does costs I think maybe 250Ld (ish) or more but the same inworld Group Gifts are on the Marketplace for 1Ld each.  I think I would have been slightly mad if I’d joined the get the Group Gifts only to find that I could have saved myself a lot of Lindens then again I don’t know what else the Group offers you so you may get a nice discount or gifts sent out directly to group members etc.

These gifts are not for everyone as they’re mainly for people who have a home in SL or in this first case like to use backdrops but since we like to have something of everything on this blog here they are.

This is a backdrop and it’s much bigger than I had expected which means it’s really good for using to take pictures. At the far end you can see some barriers and there is a little entrance there but it’s what’s behind those blue glass squares which I loved most.

LOVE this colour and the lighting of this, you can see the winter trees through the glass cubes.  This simple square room will make for a very interesting backdrop.  There is no doorway into it so you have to rezz a seat and sit on it to get in….dead simple.

The next Dollarbies is a very simply styled furniture pack.

The style, to me, is very Danish Modern in its simplicity and yet that’s not really true as look at the shadows, even the slats are shadowed.

You get these 3 matching pieces and a 4th one which although very similar didn’t have the slats feature and I couldn’t squeeze it in.  If I remember correctly I’m pretty sure each piece was just 1 or 2prims!  I almost forgot you can also change the colour of the slates, I think there are about 5 shades to chose from.

That’s me hiding in the background lol. When I packed up my land house I left the brickwork and just slapped down a concrete base so this is now my new workspace, over the wall is where my beach is and just in the distance is my horse running around…it’s my little spot of heaven lol.

This bike shed comes either in bits or in this case linked and still only 8prims in full.  I have a LOT of bikes in SL so I’m wondering if I have any spare prims to put them on show on this stand thing.

There are a total of 6 Dollarbies in the Taikou MP shop and I got all of them and all of them are excellent.

“”Old World” Charm.(Dollarbies).

I spotted a flapping fish being used as decor and I want it for my beach so I grabbed the info and that’s how I ended up back at a shop called “Old World”.

This is a shop which flys a bit under the radar and yet it’s STUFFED with such good stuff.  A lot is in the Role Play vein yet so much of it is perfect for anyone’s home but mainly garden.  For people who have small plots of land, there are ready-made veg gardens where you simply rezz and enjoy.

At the LM are a whole load of Dollarbies.  This Pavillion is one of them, just stunning and it’s a good reflection of the standard of the designs you can buy and only 11 prims.

This is as good now as it was when it was first set out for us.  I think it has 4 textures and this is the one I like the best.it

Oh Lord, I love bagels and these bagels look good enough to eat. You get 2 in the pack both wearables but you can rezz one as decor as it’s only 1 prim.  The second one comes with a sort of “hold helper” which is a bit like an “ankle lock” and as you can see it makes for a good pose.

That potted plant is another Dollarbie.  There are many more and if you want to splash out it’s only 20Lds to join the group and there are some handy decor items.  I may join it just to grab the heap of snow-covered pumpkins which will look great at Wintertime.

As for the fish, I’m going to have to walk around yet again as although I’ve checked out the Marketplace shop it’s not there.

Free or Cheap.

It’s not often I get to use this pose so it was fun to dust it off as it’s pretty suitable for these free flower patches from CJ Creations.

You get two patches, one of the yellow flowers and the other one is Daisys.  Pretty standard in size and prims (1prim) but as you can see a nice dense texturing so a fine Free For All gift from CJ Creations.

To find this you need to go into the large greenhouse and it’s on your right but there is much more outside.

Although there is a lot of varied things one of the big things about the CJ shop is the small scene-setting little plots.  Faith and I love nothing better than faffin on our sim but for most renters, you have a small plot to work with and of course, not everyone wants to faff so these premade scenes are perfect. Just a quick rezz and you can change the look of your garden to suit your mood.

Last night before I logged off I popped into the “TWE12VE” event (it starts on the 12th of each month) which is celebrating a Birthday and on each stall is an item set out for, go on have a guess?  Nope, not free but only 12Ld.  All of the gifts have a little picture so you can see what is in the gift bag so you can make your mind up before you buy.  It wasn’t until I zoomed in closely that I realised this was patterned in a sea theme when I’d put it on it’s colours have a more muted Autumn feel to me.

You get lots of fits and a nice hud of textures and because the body of this top has a puffed out fit it means that I found more things like the blue skirt I’m wearing fitted nicely under it.

BUT this will shock you because I’m sorely tempted to buy the cropped hoodie even though they have slogans on the front.  Not only are they just 99Ld but the designs/slogans are pretty fun.
