Odds n Sods (some free, some cheap, some unique)

I’ve so much to do I just don’t know what to do and that even includes SL so as I was stood there trying to mind as to what to do I though “sod it just chuck a few odds n sods together” so here they are.

gloves

As I said I would I popped back to League and ended up treating myself to a couple of items.  From the close up you can see how great these Sheepskins gloves are.  They come with or without the pom poms and of course they’re mesh.  You do have a choice of colours and not to bad at only 95Lds a pair.

legs

There are not many shops in SL that I would buy non mesh items from, in fact Sn@tch is the only one but I’m really impressed with not only the quality but the range.  Everything from mini skirts to some simply beautiful blouses.  Since for non mesh items there aren’t demos available I can only tell you that from the pictures in the shop the blending of system layers and sculpted layers looks impeccable.  So if you need clothes to layer under mesh or still prefer your SL mesh free then this is a great shop.  I treated myself to these gartered socks at 115 as I thought they look great with my shorts.

PS remember this is where I got the really nice neck scarf and those mittens are mesh but again for non mesh heads there’s a great pair of rainbow stripy ones.

top

I also picked up this simple top, 60Lds,  again for layering but I love how the texturing gives you an added oomph to the boobies.

Then I popped over to Kusshons to grab some of the new goodies.  This cute snowman is a freebie and at 4 prims a low prim freebie.  Check out the box because you also get a snow rezzer which I didn’t try as I have my own snow rezzing away but that’s a nice little addition.

teapot

The teapot is also from Kussions and although it’s not free at 10Lds that’s just a token price, called “ugly Christmas pot” and I take offence because today I took a little break from work and went into the garden to harvest some fir branches and ivy and I’ve been stuffing them into….damn yes teapots and jugs and I think they look adorable just like this one, although the broken bauble is a little sad for sure.  There is another 10Ld item which is a pile of book seat which has some nice poses in it and the Freebie that Faith has just blogged of a little pile of logs waiting to be lit which has some fun poses in it.

Check out the “toaster” cover behind the teapot, this is a Group Gift (free to join) from Irrie’s Dollhouse You get 2 in the pack and these with an old popcorn tin are waiting to be picked up.  If you’re into a bit of hunting then there is a hunt item from the Megastuff hunt also waiting to be found and I found it but I’ve run out of time to show you that I’ll let it be a surprise for you.

Sadly although Irrie’s Dollshouse is a big shop it’s not massively packed which is a shame as she has some great retro items, I’m particularly tempted by the almost doll-like stove/oven but OMG there is a babies high chair here which is so freaking adorable! Retro with an interactive menu for adult and child to use, oodles of poses and food but there is a notice board there with much more info than I can give right now.  I’m not into SL babies and children but I’d simply love this in my home for its retro look alone.  Maybe I should get it and stuff a Teddy Bear in it?

Springtime Smiles

Dress FREE! (womanstuff hunt) Basket (old freebie poche) Scarf old 1mm gift

One extreme to another here in the UK. Today it feels so springy ! SO my thoughts turn to gardening and planting and generally mooching about outside. I found this sweet little frock in the megastuff hunt at Butterfly Effectz. Halter neck with such a darling retro inspired print all over. I simply adore green and pink when used together, makes me feel all nostalgic somehow. Its got a nifty thin belt that slips around your hips, overall a winner for me. My scarf is a verrry old gift from 1mm as is my basket (You can get a very similar scarf from IZUMIYA in a gacha for just 20L , if that helps) Behind me you can just see peeking out a new release from Zinnias.

Zinnias Spring Chicken Gardening Set

Zinnia always comes up with something right on the trend button and quirky, so I fell in love with this spring chicken table set ! Can anyone not fall in love with this chicken? It’s so realistic and ever so adorable. She sits atop the table which in itself is beautiful, lovely wood grain and paint effect that settles so nicely in a garden environment.

Zinnias NEW!

You also get a shovel, and poster, oh look ! Another chickenlicken on the ground ! Overall its a fabulous addition to your springtime space – thanks Zinnia ❤

Megastuff hunt - forgotten flowers FREE

One last little treat, something I found that I didn’t know I needed, but now do. This is the “forgotten flowers” from Persnickety. Its their prize in the megastuff hunt and its JUST what I wanted for a spot in my garden between two borders. A forgotten pile of dirt that you left in the corner, suddenly sprouts a pretty growth of flowers, know what I mean? The pile of dirt is shaped so you can push it up against most things, totally lovely.

The Challenge – plus Megastuff hunt

The Challenge - Sways

More from The Challenge, and Sway’s has his fantastical little build and fencing up for grabs. It’s the Andersen half timbered summer-house. Low on prims and high on style. Such a darling little cabin, perfect for your springtime and Summer gardens, maybe a little hideaway for you and your friends. Inside is really a blank canvas, so gussy it up, go rustic or retro, whatever you fancy. The fencing for it is superb, I’m a bit of an expert on fencing after having scoured SL for some last year.

The Challenge Sway's,Sickly sweet megastuff hunt- SFD group gift dress FREE

Couldn’t resist sitting outside, as it was such a lovely day yesterday. A few woolly friends joined me as I perched on this stool and table set from Sickly Sweet. Quite shabby chic and feminine with a handful of lovely poses in the seat. This is their gift in the mega-stuff hunt, and one I shall be holding onto. Check out the rest of the store while you’re there, definitely one to keep an eye on, as I spotted some unique and desirable pieces I shall be going back to ponder on.

The Challenge hate this -,Cleo Design megastuff hunt 1L

Inside my Andersen house I found it spacious enough to place a couple of pieces that have stolen my heart. The chair (there are two in the box),vase of sakura blossom and the chest of drawers are all from Cleo Design. This is the gift for the Mega-stuff Hunt and quite the find. As is usual with Cleo Design, you’re richly spoilt with poses for both males & females, including some that rez props as above. I just fell in love with the colours of wood on the chest of drawers, so quaint ! I teamed the drawers up with this wooden belling deer wall decor panel from [hatethis], there are two versions, a more natural toned wood and this one that fitted so well with my theme.  (Is it me or does this look really really art deco?)
