I’m a winner! (Auction Board Prize & Mention of Freebie).

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.

Checking my groups. (NOT free).

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.

Sorry NOT free. (Info only).

Since Faith has found some great freebies I decided that today I would check out old LM’s which is how I came to the M&M Creations shop and WOW.

I will say that the photos are NOT of the same building, I ended up taking dozens of pictures of all the buildings and couldn’t chose which one to show you so in the end I decided I’d show you just a hint of what you will find at this shop.

This is a “Full Perm” shop which also has full builds/homes out for sale and I love each and everyone of them.

I’ve just spent a most pleasant 45 mins wandering and camming around some of the best “themed” homes.

I say “themed” in the sense they have a rustic/RP/Gor/village/mansionesque feel. I really do hate to “label” the style of these builds as I think they have something for everyone. The attention to detail is just excellent from the soot stained fireplaces to the hidden room with marble seats etc.

The quality of texturing is second to none, that big grinding wheel turns around and behind it is a built in stone sink.

The person who built these builds has such a brilliant eye for details. Take for example this stone sink and the more modern window which opens to a deep window sill and you can see the older outside window frame. Anyone who lives in the UK or has visited an old castle knows that the walls are feet thick and have often when they’ve been modernised have a new window frame inside.

Every home and every room has something which makes you go “oooh, what a great idea”.

I was actually going to buy and live in this split level cottage once.

You may remember at the begining of this year we completely stripped our sim back, got a new terrain map, and then rebuilt from scratch and this build was going to be my new home. Even though I didn’t go for it in the end I can still see how it would have looked. I won’t tell you the prims because I must be wrong as they’re just way too low so I’m not sure about them.

The builds are split over 2 levels so check the ones on the ground and then hop on the TP for this cottage and some more builds.

Now for the downside, price tag. Sometimes I love a home so much I buy it even though I know that the chances are I will never ever use it, just knowing I have it in my invent is enough but although I really do think you’re getting your moneys worth I can’t justify it in this case as we are talking about 1000++++Lds.

However I can’t stress enough that you are paying for such great quality and attention to detail and remember, Christmas is around the corner so why not treat the RL and SL you a dream home to live in as a Christmas Treat.

PS. Don’t rush over and buy as I’m going to do another post on homes. As much as I hope you fall in love this these buildings I’d hate for you to see my next post and then have “buyers remorse”.

Its the Little Things (Freebie inc)

I bought this pack of chairs – two finishes included, – only 2Li, priced at $35L for the set. The boxes of flowers are only $10L and 2 Li -with texture options for the wooden box. The one on the left is as it comes, the one on the right is after me editing the flowers to a more Autumnal tone.

Crunching through the leaves (Dollarbie)

Antique Artistry Dollarbie

Jumping in piles of leaves is one of the MOST fun things ever ! I was dead pleased when I saw this great big pile of leaves from Antique Artistry and only $1L. What I didnt know until I rezzed it is that the leaves actually fly around and as you walk through there are crunchy noises !! At 1Li you can quite literally scatter these piles of leaves around to your hearts content – I have ❤ Check out the market place store, a lot of the items are now dollarbies – I especially like the scary window and foggy fence !

No more disclaimers.(Freebies & Bargains).

I’m going to try not to say when something is a “Reblog” because although a lot of people may have seen the item before or I definitely know something is being reblogged I’d like to assume that to someone the item is NEW or you may have owned it but it’s now lost in your invent so it’s a reminder of something that you may like to get again. So in future I’m going to try not to use the word “reblog” and just do the post.

These “Steel Head” gifts are a prime example.

Who does not own or has owned a pair of these Timberland style boots in RL? Damnit I swear I even have the same coloured laces.  Anyhow these ones from Steel Head also come with a hud so you can change the colour and the fit. They do come in a man’s size and it was easy for me to edit them to fit my feet.

I actually won a very similar pair of these from a Lucky Board which acted as a reminder to see if they’re still out for us.  A bigger hud of colours options for these fashion sneakers.

There are a few more gifts for us in this shop also what looks like it may be pretty handy and that’s a “script cleaning” set of scripts.  Use these with caution and practise first on a copy before you do anything with it.

Now for the “cheapies” and a totally random picture.

Let me explain.  I called into the “LOVE” landscaping shop/sim to see if there was any new discounted items, the new Autumn stock and if there were any new Group Gifts.  Yes to the first and second and nope to the third.  I bought the wild grass pack, only 50Lds for 10 different shades and you can just about make out the brick and iron fence set.  This Graveyard fence set comes as in a fatpack.  Each bit is only 1 prim and 2 prims if you use the linked gate.  Such excellent quality and low prims for only 50Lds! Don’t let the fact it’s labelled as a “Graveyard” fence set put you off as this makes for a great fence for someone living their best Victorian/old SL life lol.

There was another 50Ld offer and as for the Group Gifts, I didn’t really see anything new but check em out esp the Yoga rugs.

I’m logging off SL and binge-watching horror movies.  I indulged in a Shudder subscription and I can’t think of anything nicer than pulling the blinds down and chilling, geddit? watching horrors.

Steelhead Outfitters. (Hop on the TP).

2Li and just $10L

They are calling this a “house” on the market place but I’m using it as a barn or storage shed. Fantastic deal from Landscaping by FelixvonKotwitz. Haven’t looked at this store for ages and decided to take a wander around the main in-world store. Whoa ! Lots to see, some totally gorgeous homes and of course plants and sim decor. The house has no door which I preferred as I was using it as sim decor, I’ve added some nick knacks to the interior and placed a good scattering of sheep and bunnies around, it just is so pretty ! Only 2Li its unbelievable ! Copiable and modify btw.
