Maudalin.

Faith and I for many many years ran a rental company but sadly RL pressures meant that something had to go and it was that side of SL and yet even after all this time we still miss some of the aspects of it.  So when I got a note off Pet (petunia908.pinklady) telling me that she has had the opportunity to set up a few homes part of me felt a pang of jealousy.

Honestly I only ever make mistakes on my blog when I don’t do the write up when I’m stood in the shop so I can double check and in this case I’m pretty glad I did because this is how this home looked yesterday but today it looks like…………………….

Snow….this.

This is a perfect opportunity for those of you who are looking for a home to rent for winter or have never rented before and aren’t sure how to do it.  I know that Pet is frequently in SL running her business and chatting with her friends so she isn’t going to be one of those landlords who never help you if a problem occurs (remember folks NOTES not IMs how I remember that desperate plea lol).

If you’ve never rented before it can’t be any simpler.  This home is not rented because you can see that the rental box is large and noticeable, click the box and it should give you the rental details you need to know, simply how much each week, how man prims you can use and which group to join so you can rezz your possession. If those details seem reasonable to you reclick the box and pay and voila you have a home (the box should shrink, fade and move up into the sky).  As an old hand at the game the prices are more than reasonable and the prim allowance is more than generous.  The houses are set on one side of the sim and each also has a small beach area but she has also laid out a pictureque skating pond, seating and the cutest skating penguins ever.

PlantPet also has her Christmas shop open so naturally I went shopping.  Not only are her items reasonably priced I love them.  The very large white privacy bush is a prime example. Large beautiful and deep and yet only a single prim and 50Lds.  Going to be dotting these all over the sim (copy of course).  A brilliant splash of cold.

floThis, if I remember correctly, is also available in the main shop because I had meant to pick it up previously but forgot.  A simple translucent floral picture to hang at a window to allow the light to show through. I’m so pleased that she’s also put this into her Christmas shop as although it’s not Christmassy I think it looks gorgeous there.  Might shove one of her colourful Poinsettias on the windowsill later.

Plant2This isn’t wrapping paper texture this is an extreme close up of one of the shrubs called Winter poinsettia and look at that depth! This is believe it or not a 1 prim shrub.  All of her shrubs even though they are single prims have a real full look to them.  She has a whole selection of garden plants from the berry laidened bushes to frost covered trees and yet again so reasonably priced and copy.

Her main shop is much bigger than her Christmas shop and both inside and outside are packed so please check it out.  I have put her link to the Marketplace but really you need to see these in world to really appreciate the quality.

“Persnickety=Fussy about small details” is what one dictionary translates it as which as it happens suits this shop “Persnickity” completely because close up or from a distance these items look great.

Now I have a confession because I’ve had so much stuff from Persnickity in my invent just waiting to be blogged but I’ve not known where to start because basically for garden and home there is everything you need and it’s got everything I like such as attention to details, low prims and low price.  I’ve got everything from a Victorian love sofa, blender, plastic laundry basket that’s so realistic it’s a shock and the best ever sim stuffers.

To me “sim Stuffers” are those plants that have amazing depth to them even though they’re seriously low primmed. When trying to work out how to show you this I decided just to do a few close-ups so you can see the amazing texturing.

HasselA 2 primmed rose bush.  Close up and the next one is in full.

Hassel14Not only is it one of the best low primmed plants I’ve found but it’s only 35Lds! 2 Prims and copy! Lots of her items are copy but not all.  Hassel 8Vivid colours, great depth and so pretty.

Hassel 7All of these photos were taken with the same settings (nams) which is very similar to midday if you don’t use Windlight.

Snapshot_058Plenty of grasses, bushes, trees from the more realistic to the vivid. A thick wall climbing ivy for only 3 Prims.

Hassel6Bubble hearts so cute and still only a single prim.

I’ve not even started on the home furnishings but the lovely dressing table and chair are a prime example. Shabby Chicness galore.  Kitchen wares, beds, baskets, Cabbage rose textiles,  living room sets all with that Shabby Chic charmingness.

Tor Scifi Rezzable

Sorry last photo I promise but this is 2 of the 6 prim beech woods together and nestled in the middle is Faiths tent inc her washing line.  I also had a fiddle with Windlight but it was mainly to show how even if you have the smallest of plots or the biggest of sims you can use her excellent low primmed garden items to pack it out.  Every time I pop back here I find new stuff.  She has the best fat leaves Hosta plants out and now I’ve noticed in the back area she has a Rezzer so now if you need a home to place all your items in and in keeping the with Cottagy theme you can find it all here.

She has so much up on the Marketplace but make sure to pop inworld as well because you can hop on an egg and go for her Egg Hunt.  Hidden are 5 Big Fat Gold covered eggs with fun free stuff.
