The Creative Spark – All That Glitters New Round!

Sooooooo excited that Zan is beginning to Winterise our sim! I adore winter and Christmas ❤ Was chuffed to see some winter landscaping in this round of The Creative Spark from Flying Arts. Winter Gate above is just 9Li, I’ve got a “thing” for bits of walls, you’ll find them dotted about our sim Dreamworks a LOT (feel free to visit) This one has icicles and hmm angels or fairies – not 100% sure – but I know what I like and I like this. If you buy in the round you’ll get a hefty 50% discount so this will be only $75L.

The other item is just as pretty and only 8Li for the whole thing. Two reindeer relaxing amongst the frosty grass beneath a tree – very atmospheric and something I will definitely be using for the season ahead. 50% discount makes this just $50L !

A little bit of this and a little bit of that.(Freebie ‘n’ Cheapies).

Ta-Dah! A woman at work changing the sim from Autumn to Winter.

The only freebie in this picture is the top.  I’m not a keen “sloganny” person BUT I made an exception for this rather good freebie from R3VOLT.  It comes in a lot of fits and a hud.  In this hud I believe are 3 plain colours but for once I actually really like the Christmassy images because just like this stringed light version the images are cute and subtle at the same time.  Its a keeper for me.

The R3VOLT VIP Group isn’t free, I think it’s 200Lds and there are some nice gifts but this top is a Subscribers gift so slap the sub-board and check the history and it’s the no “2” note.  I also have to say that the R3VOLT is a shop where the owner has spent as much time creating a landscaping and shop decor to match the mood of the shop contents.  Impressive.

OH and I do believe that there is a mans gift inc in the sub gift, so Moz might be tempted.

The “cheap” is my lippie.  As I was rummaging on the Marketplace I came across a shop called “Viena” and it has a few 10Lds lippie packs and because they  were cheap enough to try I bought 3 of these packs and love all 3 of these packs.  I’m wearing, obviously, one of the plainer colours but it has the nicest and lightest of sheens to it but as you will see there are some really unusual shades.  Make sure to check out which mesh heads they work with but I think Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega are the most common ones.  There are demos available

We’re starting early on the sim because RL is gonna be busy and it’s nice to be able to start early than leave it late and not enjoy a lovely wintery sim.  Faith has her jobs to do and I get to do all the fancy pants stuff.  At this moment I have such random cr*p rezzed but before I get all spendy I want to make sure I don’t already own it.  I have taken all my pictures just using my Nams prim n skin setting but I can’t want to see how these “sparkles” look when I decide on which windlight setting to use for Winter.

So it’s just the “sparkles” layer. I will put the LM to our sim so you can check it out for yourself.  Only 11Lds and 1 prim I’m going to go crazy with this sparkle.

PS.  If you do visit our sim then please ignore the mess as I’m just rezzing a whole load of randomness till I decide what’s going to stay and what’s going to go.

From Fail to Fabulous.(Freebies).

Over at Whimsey, there are 3 hunts going on and out of the 3 items, I only found the 1 even though easy hints are given!

I can’t agree more with the sentiment of the words in the framed picture.  You get these 2 things together and the picture is 2 prims and that lovely table is just 3 and yup you know exactly what I did.

Pulled it apart.  Seriously pleased because each different component is so shop quality.  I nestled the candles into the box just to show that you can put things in it, can you see the box even has handles?  That lovely fabric could be used to tart up an old table or just use as without a base or again just remove the candles and you have a lovely coffee table etc.  I never know if it’s deliberate or accidental when a shop allows their products to be mod but then again how many of us think about editing things more than just making them smaller or bigger.

This isn’t a massive shop and as I said there are hints available, on the wall outside of the door.  There are also some nice decor group gifts and although it costs 50Lds to join you get that back.

I didn’t buy anything but that was mainly because I spent all my Lindens at another shop (Lode if you want to know as I am ADDICTED to that shop) but there are some sweet decor items in this shop but I’m definitely heading back to hunt down those other freebies.

UPDATE, Ooo I didn’t spot that there is also a lot of items outside as well so I’m going to click “Publish” now and go hunting.

UPDATE on the “update” so I went wandering outside and realised that this is a whole sim of home/garden/winter/autumn/Christmas temptation and yes I caved in and bought some Lindens and some decor items.  There is also a sim wide hunt going on and what you’re looking for is a pale pumpkin priced at 50Lds BUT each pumpkin contains an item which is worth 250Lds and the temptation is killing me so I quickly logged out.

My Fave Words, CHEAP, DOLLARBIES, FREEBIES, COPY & MOD!

Faith did a post recently where she found some super freebies/dollabies from the MP and of course since I’m a hoarder and they were fabulous finds I not only grabbed them but I decided to check out the inworld shop called “Old World”.

At the LM there is a whole load of Dollarbies/cheapies/GG’s including these because at only 19Lds I’d say they were a super bargain.

The cat, log basket and plant are all linked and come to 4prims, the plant pots are only I believe 2 prims for the whole lot, and here is the BUTTT…yup copy & mod.

Feel free to skip this last bit esp if you’re not into landscaping etc.

I’d spent so much time wandering around the Old World shop that I didn’t have much time to play with the mod but even simply removing the plants from the pots gave me for 1 prim for each  and some pots to put my own plants in and a nice clump of very seasonal colour flowers to place at random on our sim.  With the cat one I actually only removed the plant, comes in 3 bits and those leaves make a most lovely plant.  Since I had to log out I am going to assume it will be just as easy to separate the cat from the basket.

I will be back to this shop, not today or tomorrow probably not till next year but I have the LM tucked away into a new folder I have where I put places I want to return to at a later date to actually buy something.  The “Old World” shop is geared very much to the RP, Gor, Medival, Rustic style of decor and landscaping but as always although most of it wouldn’t fit into my SL there are some fab pieces.  There is a fab small complete vegetable garden perfect for those with small plots of land or the things I really want is the broken down truck with soil and plants growing in the bed of the truck.  They do come with a price tag but I don’t mind getting spendy when it comes to decor/landscaping.  The only reason I didn’t pick them up now is that my invent will eat it.  Things go into my invent and I never see them again, it’s like a Blackhole of doom!  So if I bought them now in a week or so they will have vanished and come next season when I really could use them I’d either forgotten about them or wouldn’t be able to find them.  So it’s better just to earmark them for future purchase rather than take the risk.

Now I’m inworld LM grabbing I’ve checked and the group is only 10Lds to join and between all the Dollarbies and the GG’s you will find loads BUT I also remembered that if you walk around this shop you will see a small building with a sale sign on it and inside are some really cheap bargains.

PS.  But of course you can leave the things as they come, you know I love to rip things apart but I will be keeping those plant pots together as a little group.

Such cuteness for FREE!

Oh my I nabbed this as soon as I spotted it on the Market place. Well that’s not true – I went to the store to get it as it was FREE – $2L on the market place – god I am SO cheap ! This is by DIVIAs Design a new-to-me place. You rez the little bag of leaves and rake – then touch it to rez the stump. Its brilliant, if you touch a little array of leaves drift around and a windy sound effect! If you’re short on prims once you’ve saved the build, you can delete the bag & rake – but at a single prim, why bother?

Super glad I did go to the store as it was dead nice to mooch around. Lots to see and a massive wall of group gifts (Group is free to join) Some of the gifts are sculpted, which I know some people think is dated nowadays BUT – check them out – beautifully made and look great! Anyway, being cheap made me pay – I ended up buying something for our home whilst I was there – I’m a sucker for a good fountain ! Just installed it at home and it looks pretty sensational – if I get time maybe a photo later this week, it will even work in the Winter as its got seasonal options.

Modern Art?(Freebie).

Doesn’t this look like a lovely piece of art which I guess everything in SL really is.

Zoom out and of course, it’s a tree.

A fantastic heads up from a friend, gonna now call our “followers” friends because that’s what you’ve become.  Anyhow it was perfect timing because today has been a sh*te day and it was time something nice happened and this was it.  A lovely freebie from “Little Branch” which I think most people who have a home in SL will know that shop well.  This is a big tree and 12 prims but it’s a plot stuffer and as you can see from the pictures it’s thick and lush what you can’t see is that this is a moving tree so it is gently swaying in the breeze, so unlike the trees outside my house at the moment as we are taking a little bit of battering at the mo.

Kiylee also told me about an event called “Blueprint Home and Garden Event” which is where I left my AV stood because as soon as I click publish I’m going to spend some leisurely time wandering around there.

PS.  My “sh*te day is not the worst but I can still grumble and mumble about it but I hope EVERYONE out there is doing OK! as in the UK we’re having a bit of a battering with the wind and of course in some parts of the world they’re suffering very badly from extreme weather so my “problems” are pretty minor.

PPS I promise my next post will be clothing! I know that a lot of people don’t have homes in SL so I will make sure to find some wearable cuties for my next post.

Lots and lots of sweet sugar.(10Ld, 20Ld and some freebies).

I went to the “Spoonful of Sugar event” and also into full spendy mode.  This event is to raise money for a charity I should imagine we all know and that’s Doctors without Borders.  A truly worthy cause so if you have Lindens to spend then it’s time and trust me there is plenty of things to spend Lindens on and I did!

But now for the bargains.

So there are lots of shops with lots of temptation and lots of bowls of sugar set out for us.  These sugar bowls are priced at 10 or 20Lds and contain this n that and in the Raindale sugar bowl is everything you can see in these 2 pictures.

I can’t remember how much I paid for these but again it was either 10 or 20Lds which is just a piddling amount. Everything inc the garden swing is low primmed.

There is a total of 5 sims and although I’m showing you decor items there are many shops for clothes, shoes etc.  There are also some freebies as I did spot them in a few shops but not many as of course they want us to spend and I want to buy lol.

PLUS if you’re a social butterfly there are events going on and I sat for a while as a fashion show was being held and it was nice to see so many other AV’s just taking a moment of their time to just sit and join in.
