Crash, bang, wallop, *****!!!(Cheapies).

“Crash, bang, wallop, *****”, is the sound my Christmas tree made when it crashed down and the “*****” is the sound my OH made when it landed on him!  This is the second time it’s done it and if it does it one more time I’m getting out the Duct tape and taping the bugger to the wall!

I’m still fiddling away in my SL house and I’d just thrown some really nice scrunched up rugs on the floor when I decided to pop over to the shop I got them from to sniff out any freebies or in this case cheapies.

I would have sworn I already had these but I can’t find them in my invent, no surprise there.  Super, 2 prims each and only ??? I forgot the prices of the things I picked up but nothing was more than 10Lds and in the Myth shop they’re clearly priced so you can check before you buy.  I was going to put these on my staircase but they’re non-editable which is totally fine.

A pot with a “Trow” over it.  Not making fun of the typo because I make enough of them myself.  So it is what it is and pretty nice at that.  I took my pictures in my sim setting.

A quirky messy chest of drawers, it’s not really to my taste but again so cheap I just grabbed it to show you.  Perfect for a Kawaii lover or a child’s room.

Last one.  Look at the sticky plaster on the teapot!  Although this doesn’t suit the furniture in my garden room this oversized tray/teapot etc reminds me of children’s tea party or a Mad Hatters themed setting.

Sorry about the lack of prices but again everything was under 10Lds and there a lot more than what I’m showing you on the wall behind the reception desk so make sure to check the shop out even if what I’ve shown you isn’t of interest.  Once you’ve filled your invent with the cheapies make sure to check out both floors of this shop and definitely outside.  So many tempting things for your home and garden and not badly priced at all….I had to scurry home quickly before I caved in.

Temptation caught me.(Freebies).

URGH, I went to a yardsale last night and now I have so few Lindens to my name I might just dig out that begging sign from my invent and plonk myself somewhere.  Having said that I am going to buy 1 last thing from the “who what” shop, I won’t tell you what it is but they’re hanging there in the shop upstairs and I do believe that once I’ve made my mind up which colour to choose it will  cost me just 80Lds which I just about have left.  I’m not going to tell you what it is but I bet you can guess it if you go over to the who what shop for yourself.

Now for the FREEEEEBIES.

This is just one of a few “froo froo” items and this is a dressing table/coffee table little tray I think it does say something about it being a “jewelry stand” but obviously you could pop anything on to this.

Part of me thinks these were gifts from a previous event but it doesn’t matter as they’re now in the shop and super cute. You get the numbers 0-10 and copy and 1 prim.  The glow you see on the table top is from these when lit and you can turn them off.  Just think of a row of these on your mantelpiece as a countdown to a special event such as a birthday or Christmas and each day you can turn one on.

There are other freebies in this shop, the tray is on the reception desk I believe but you will find the rest of them in a little cubby room to the left of the desk and if you blinked you will miss them.

Approach this shop with caution as although it’s a small shop there are just some really sweet decor items and Gacha’s, make sure to check not just the upstairs but the outdoor section as well because dare I say it there are some amazing glittery Christmas tree decals which I’ve added to my “buy” list.

PS I’ve just made my choice and yes it cost 80Lds and if you go but can’t guess what it is I will tell you what it was in my next post.

Works of Art.(Freebie n Dollarbie).

As soon as I get an update note from Loordes of London I always read it because I love the clothes and shoes and often they’re on at special events and even more importantly at special prices.  As it happens the lady who owns Loorde’s has a RL sister who owns Storax Tree and her shop is packed with home and garden items and like her Sis, she too has a lot of offers/discounts etc on offer which leads me to this painting.

The reason I had to get this is because when I set up my new home (Hardwick House)  I need big and bold art work so this with its illuminating light just hits the spot, geddit? LOL.  The painting and light are linked and still come to just 2 prims.

This is the size it rezzes at but I spotted that there is a resizer script so I’m gonna guess you can make it bigger or smaller depending on the size of your home.  Although this is a “Hunt” prize you don’t actually have to hunt for it as the LM takes you to a room where all the events and hunts that are going on are on the wall for you to see, so just find the poster for the “Masters of Style” hunt and buy it for a single Ld.

For those who want something a bit more modern then you might just have spotted the star shaped light at the top of the picture.

This is a new gift from a shop called Goose but this is the SL frees & offers(sic) free group gift.  A simple 1 prim star wall light, or just have it floating around your home and sim.

There is a lovely GG set out for the Goose group members and that’s only 50Lds to join so check that out.  I only scanned the note that was sent out but the long and short of it is that the person who owns Goose has been busy in RL but is now back and getting Goose back up to speed.  Goose is yet another Home and Garden shop packed with delightful stuff for your SL home.

Sorry, I am a bit vague with shop/designers names in this post but time is short.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Firefly (Freebie).

SL seems to be a bit Borky today so when I finally managed to get on our sim I though I wouldn’t risk trying to TP anywhere and just work through the massive backlog of notes and I got 2 notices in and as soon as I spotted this delightful freebie from Brokeh I of course risked TPing my ass over there.

XXXjaruse

These linked glass Kilner jars with little lights floating in them.  You get 2 versions one with shadow and one without.  Simple, low prim and a delightful decor item.

As soon as I snagged I TPed back to my home because I spotted all those Gacha’s inside and some lovely tree’s and I’m penny pinching so I quickly TPed back to my platform to continue the good work of sorting through my notes and notices.

Light up your life. (Freebies).

Woah what a lot of notes and notices but I pushed them to one side and popped over to Jian where I had spotted a really lovely couple of decor items.

First this bar set which comes with not only the chairs  but both the bar and chairs come with colour changing huds.

XXXCrossred

Some great poses in those chairs as well but then I wouldn’t expect any less from Jian.

XXXcrossred1

I then changed the colour of the bar and turned it around so you can see that is even has shelves for you to stack up with glasses and bottles etc.  Guess what? not only is it free but a single prim!  Same for the chairs of course.

XXXlightred

I have a secret platform hidden from view with tree’s and shrubs so these amazing velum lights will look amazing, when I get around to setting them out properly and not just this random mess.  A lovely glow and you can even see the candle and wick.  You get 3 choices in the pack, 3 in a curved shape, 3 in a straight line and a single lantern on its own and this randomness you see is actually all of them just rezzed.  When I get back inworld I think I will lay them out in a single line to edge the decking nicely….which is exactly what I did and that’s when I noticed that they also come with a colour changing Hud so check this out.

XXXCrossredblue

I’ve just used the 3 in a straight line for this layout but no matter which you use each set is only a single prim and each lamp can be set to it’s own colour.

A load of Junk (Freebies).

By now everyone who loves quality will know that Junk has not only opened a new shop on a new sim BUT there are FREEBIES and a SALE going on!

Junk

Although I’m not showing much of the “Tiny House” that I’ve used as my background but it’s a Junk Stunner.  I have blogged it previously and you can check it out for yourself at the shop.  The Freebie is this sleigh seat which as far as I’m concerned can be used any time of year and not just for winter.  You actually get 2 colours this green and a blue.

junk3

The chair, plant and a lantern on the wall are Junk as well.  As it happens you get about 5 different metal versions of that lamp.

junk2

Last piece of Junk is this Button clock which comes with instructions on how to change the time settings to suit where you are in RL.

I’m not sure if you have to join the Junk group to grab it or not but it doesn’t really matter as it’s a Free to join group.  The chairs are obviously set out but the rest of the Free Junk is actually in the brown box just near the chairs but a bit behind and to the right. You will see what I mean when you go there.

Now for any budding photographers out there this is another sim for you.  So beautifully laid out and the Windlight setting is amazing.  You cannot fail to take a stunning picture.  This first one is completely unedited, I just pointed and snapped.  However if you’re feeling a little bit braver then you have 2 days to enter a picture to a competition being held by Tab Tatham then you have 2 days to submit your picture and you never know!

An unedited picture of the sim.

And this is my entry to the Comp.

“Old Wood Things”(Freebies).

RL was a bit busy today (bloddy dentist OW) so I thought I’d just pop inworld and check my notes but as soon as I saw this one I thought “ooo easy quick post” and here it is.

woodintrep

They all come from Aisling and are inc in the same box and you don’t even have to join a group to grab.

wood2

A close up of the chests, they have that very Olde Worlde look to them which of course isn’t surprising when you see that Druunah Esharham’s shop is aimed towards the those whole enjoy RPing or even just prefer a more rustic look to their home.  Please do not let this put you off visiting, there is a whole range of furniture, RPing and clothing here and the quality is excellent which means no matter how modern your home is I’m pretty sure you will find a statement piece here.

lightsThese 1 prims lamps come in the same box as the trunks and you get 3 of them, copyable.

So of course I go back to LM grab and find even more Freebies so check this out, 5 prims crystal chandelier.  It’s simple and yet intricate and yes FREE.  Actually I also did a quick Apple Bob as I was there but RL was demanding attention so I have no idea of what I won.

lamp

I’ve blogged this shop quite recently as I picked up some great freebies from here and even treated myself to some candlesticks, I’ll put the link at the bottom, please check them out because the rug with the cheeky mouse is a keeper for my home and she has some amazingly detailed plants out for only a single prim but you will be able to see them if you check out the Aisling Old Post link.
