I don’t usually return to a store that I’ve recently featured BUT I had a notice out about a Valentines tree that had been put out as a group gift by Lunaria. This is the tree and very pretty it is too. It was a lot bigger out of the box but I resized it to fit my little courtyard. 3Li or if you make it smaller, 2Li. Dead pretty with hanging lights and red leaves – looks a treat in my garden. Andddd once again I was lured by the lucky boards which happen to be right next to the tree ! I won a little dress that I hadnt seen on my last trip – so yay! Group is free to join.
I had a lovely note from one of our blog readers Jenny the other day – a brilliant tip for some fabulous free items. I haven’t been to Lunaria for years and was so thrilled to arrive and find free gifts galore ! Jenny had pointed out the gorgeous plants and ground cover items in her note – and they are gorgeous for sure. However I was trapped like a deer in the headlights by the numerous lucky boards with clothing ! They are on a really short turn over so you wont be waiting long to win something. The dress I’m wearing above is “Annabel” and is one of many free group gifts on the wall to the left of the plants. My Bunnie was also a free gift – don’t miss out on the two wooden chests stuffed with gifts that are lying on the floor – Thanks Jenny ❤

I had such a lovely time yesterday just wandering around checking out old LM’s and shop and on my wandering I spotted this random gift.
A quick check showed me that this is a Cinoe gift and fortunately it’s also in the mainshop as a “New Years Gift”. Very detailed, excellent texturing and only 1 prim.
There is another gift in the Cinoe shop which is their group gift. A wearable chocolate latte and you get a his ‘n’ her and a rezzable option.
The group gift poster/board is at the LM and to find the New Years gift just head into the shop and it’s on the wall to your right.
Cinoe(It’s a new, to me, LM so use mine just in case you only have the old one).
NOT Free but for doggie lovers such a heartwarming scene.
I just love this little scene and if it wasn’t for the fact CATS WIN AND DOGS SUCK I’d buy it. At only 350Ld and 31 prims I think not only is that a fair price but such reasonable prims for so much details means you can plonk this on even a small patch of land.
This is very much an animal and prebuilt landscapes shop Best of all from my run around the sim most of these little scenes have animals in them, the Sunflower garden was my fav.
There is a lot of single animals you can buy, everything from bears to fish and it’s spread over I suspect the whole sim.
PS. Almost forgot the “freebies”. The group is free to join and there are 6 gifts out, all with cute animals but also all very Christmas themed and since I’m culling my invent I didn’t get any of them. There seems to be 2 main areas and 1 doesn’t have the Group Gift but you will find the area with the Group gifts close by if the LM I’ve given you doesn’t take you direct to the gifts.
Outside of the Black Swan shop it’s been landscaped very nicely and I spotted some Calla Lillies which I adored and at 1prim a shrub I wanted them.
A quick search and I found that the shop they come from “Fairy Green Fairy” which is only on the Marketplace. Since I’d seen the example of the flowers inworld and it turns out these are included in a fatpack of flowers for only 59Lds I didn’t hesitate to pick them up.
The lillies in the front are what I was after and everything else has turned out to be a big bonus.
I’ve already packed away my RL Christmas Deccies and I’m already itching to return my sim back to it’s origional lovely greeness with splashes of colour.
Some of the flowers are bold to the point of cartoonish, which is exactly what was intended.
Some I may never use such as this eye watering luminous one, I’m still keeping it though.
You get 10 packs of different plants and each pack contains many versions of that plant so in total you get 120 different plants…and shrubs. I forgot to take a picture of the shrubs but they too are bold in colours rather than shrubby shrubs.
I also picked up a premade home and landscaped demo home called the Bordeaux Manor. I’m going to assume it comes in a rezzer. The demo costs 3Ld which is neither here nor there and although I would have wished for longer than the 10mins you get to check the build out properly I’m looking forward to rezzing it and having a good look around.
Fairy Green Fairy. (Marketplace only).
TBH I knew I’d win the “Avalon” prize from the Two Moon Gardens Auction board as I’ve bid and won previous prizes and so I suspect it’s been rigged to sell the item at 152Lds. I’m NOT “throwing shade” as the prizes in these boards are worth so much more that what you “bid” on.
So this is what I “bidded” for and yup you get it ALL!
House, ponds, bridge, tree’s, boats, grass, rocks etc and you can see it in the inworld shop which is where I took these pictures.
I think the prims are about 280(ish) which is why I’ve not rezzed my copy as we don’t have enough free prims. When you see everything you get and the quality the prims are actually very reasonable. All you would need is a few extra prims to furnish the inside of the home and that’s it.
Speaking of the home I’ve never really looked inside and so I was really pleased with the inside. Really nicely done, a great curved set of stairs to the upper floor and if it wasn’t for the fact I love my own homes I’d live in this one it’s that good.
Since I know the TMG range well I know that all their builds come in very user-friendly rezzers and are copy/MOD! I’m hoping to be able to strip it back to just the 3 frozen ponds and rocks anything else such as plants/trees will be nice. What I do know is I’m going to have a most pleasant/relaxing time slurping coffee and tearing this build apart.
As for freebies, there is a much smaller simple winter scene for couples. There are 3 levels to the TMG shop, the first is where you find this Auction board and other things but take the TP to platform 2 & 3 for extra lucky boards.
BTW don’t let such a large build put you off as you will find a scene small enough for a tiny plot of land to big builds.
I am in a lot of paid for groups which I really should check more often as I probably miss a lot of goodies and in this case this is one of the gifts from the “Never Totally Dead” shop.
I’m in the picture so you can get some idea of the size of the monster plant and yet it’s only 12 prims. Don’t worry as you won’t have to shrink it down if it’s too big as it comes in this teeny weenie size.
OK not that “teeny”. The only difference is the prims because this smaller one is only 1prim!
Thisis an extra gift which comes in the same monster plant pack. The little sign says something like “Waiting for a Fairy Godmother”. You can see bits of metal and it looks a bit like Cinderellas pumpkin coach waiting to have a Fairy Godmother to wave her magical wand over so it can grow into a big coach…never going to happen so it’s a small table decor item lol. Only 2 prims as well.
The Never Totally Dead group does come with a price tag of 200Lds and I’ve been in it for a long time now and I do have previous gifts but chances are I’ve missed an awful lot of really good ones. There are a couple of other Gifts of decor items.
I absolutely LOVE the Never Totally Dead builds. I own quite a few things from this shop as of yet none of the big builds but you will possibly recognise the quay set outside of the shop as it’s been a feature on my home for a long time as it’s just one of the best examples of a quay. I don’t have it out at this moment but next time I give my home a revamp it will be out as I miss having it.
To check out the large/small homes then you can check out the full sized builds and there is a rezzer you can use.
PS. The LM should take you to the shop and you just go down the stairs and the gifts are on the wall there.
