From Fail to Fabulous.(Freebies).

Over at Whimsey, there are 3 hunts going on and out of the 3 items, I only found the 1 even though easy hints are given!

I can’t agree more with the sentiment of the words in the framed picture.  You get these 2 things together and the picture is 2 prims and that lovely table is just 3 and yup you know exactly what I did.

Pulled it apart.  Seriously pleased because each different component is so shop quality.  I nestled the candles into the box just to show that you can put things in it, can you see the box even has handles?  That lovely fabric could be used to tart up an old table or just use as without a base or again just remove the candles and you have a lovely coffee table etc.  I never know if it’s deliberate or accidental when a shop allows their products to be mod but then again how many of us think about editing things more than just making them smaller or bigger.

This isn’t a massive shop and as I said there are hints available, on the wall outside of the door.  There are also some nice decor group gifts and although it costs 50Lds to join you get that back.

I didn’t buy anything but that was mainly because I spent all my Lindens at another shop (Lode if you want to know as I am ADDICTED to that shop) but there are some sweet decor items in this shop but I’m definitely heading back to hunt down those other freebies.

UPDATE, Ooo I didn’t spot that there is also a lot of items outside as well so I’m going to click “Publish” now and go hunting.

UPDATE on the “update” so I went wandering outside and realised that this is a whole sim of home/garden/winter/autumn/Christmas temptation and yes I caved in and bought some Lindens and some decor items.  There is also a sim wide hunt going on and what you’re looking for is a pale pumpkin priced at 50Lds BUT each pumpkin contains an item which is worth 250Lds and the temptation is killing me so I quickly logged out.

UUURRRGGGHHH.(10Ld Gifties).

It’s been just “one of those days”, you know what I mean, too much work too many things going on too many people needing stuff, add to that it’s hot and muggy and you’ve just run out of energy and that has been my day!  Then I found my OH’s coffee chocolates and I ate all of them so now I’m sat here feeling slightly queasy but only slightly guilty because if he didn’t want me to eat them then he should have hidden them better so it’s his fault I ate them….perfect logic.

I did manage to get a bit of SLing in I decided to check out a lot of shops off the beaten path but sadly I didn’t find anything with that “Ooo” factor and then I ended up at the “Up! Summer” event.

It’s the usual sort of thing, stalls with a mix of clothes and decor for sale and a lot of gifts bags with a small token price on them and I’m sure I spotted some free ones.

One of the stalls is for a shop I didn’t recognise called “LpOca” so I TPed over and scored some 10Ld goodies but I’m just going to show you the 1 gift as I’m lazy.  Obviously, you can work it out what the gift is from this picture, each bucket is only 3 prims and totally editable.  So I made a copy and then tore it apart and those pretty like pink flowers will make lovely patches of interest in your garden, even the bucket on its own is a good decor item.  The gifts are inside on the wall behind the desk and there are some which are rezzed for you to check out first.

PS.  Before you go inside check out the outside of the “LpOca” shop as it’s not a big shop and there are a couple of nice garden features I quite liked.

Life is just one giant prick! (Freebies).

In this picture I was trying to make sunbeams shine outta this Unicorns arse…it’s not worked, although it’s a pretty enough picture so I’m going with it.

A heads up from one of our readers sent me back to a place that I blogged not too long ago and picked up the excellent rugs which had a really good Yoga AO in it, and I’m a sucker for anything Yoga/sports related so she knew I would love it.  If you’re not into Yoga still go because as it happens they work just as well as decor for your home and the Yoga AO is almost a bonus to old and faded rugs.

OK the picture editing has changed it, a LOT, but it’s a mossy covered Unicorn statue and you get 2 in the pack and each is only 2 prims AND editable.  The reason I’ve put “AND” in capital letters is the one little thing which was a drawback about this gift is that it’s dark, which his why I edited the picture but as soon as I logged back in-world I checked and because it’s editable I actually turned up the “glow” you find that under the texture tab and what a difference that made.  Just that little tweak has made it glow almost magically so give it a try.

As for the title, between 2 cats, 3 Cacti and clearing out brambles in the garden I look “shredded”! I actually look as though I’ve been in a cat fight and the cat won, which they did really.  One cat got spooked and literally ran across my chest and now I have scratches on my chest which is not the sort of look a lady wants.  So I’m sat here slathered in healing balm and as much as I would like to say that my cat is looking contrite he’s not because they don’t give a sh*t really.

PS There are a couple of other GG’s as well.

“Cheap” & “Free” my 2 Fave words.

First the cheap, which is the top.

Again no demo but you often can tell just by the seller’s pictures if something is going to be good or bad and at 39Lds for the top, I knew I was in for a treat and it hasn’t disappointed. A lovely colour and great detailing, my only moan is I wanted all the shades as they’re all lovely but that price tag is for just the 1 shade.  The top comes in all the standard fitmesh sizes and one for my SLink bod.

There is a big sale upstairs at Santino Design with lots and lots of equally as good looking stuff starting at 25Lds and although not the ones I’m wearing in this picture there are some pants in this sale which look as though they have the same colour palette as this top and they’re just 30Lds.

I don’t know if there are any GG’s in the Santino shop but I did hear a Lucky Chair calling out I just didn’t have time to investigate so make sure you do before you buy anything.

Now for the free.

I spotted these 2 planters being used as decor in a shop so I did a quick check and found that they’re on sale in the “LadyMagnum”(sic) marketplace shop for 99Lds which IS a bargain but since I have enough plants/planters already and I have to admit I’ve just bought some amazing new plants for our sim I couldn’t justify it.

But I still decided to check out the inworld shop and boy am I glad I did because WOO HOO there is a free one.  Can’t remember if this is just free for everyone or you have to join the group and I’ve run out of SLing time so I can’t log in to check.  What I do know is that there are 2 gifts, the other is a brown bear standing on his own patch of grass and both Gift bags are labeled wrong.  The bag with the planters in says it contains bookends.  So ignore what the label says and just grab I know I was so pleased I did.

Sadly though they’re 7 Prims for the 2 and they’re linked because you just know I’d have ripped them apart and planted those amazingly delicate frond-like flowers all around my garden.

If the LM doesn’t take you directly to the gifts they’re easy to find as they’re on a stand with an almost luminous “gift” sign in the windlight setting of the shop.

Dirty little stopper upperer!(Freebies).

Yes, I actually logged into SL at about 2AM just to see if I could grab the last remaining items from the Apple Fall sale and now I’m done.  Today is the last day so I will assume that you have some time to get in and grab and remember everything is priced between 25-75Ld and that inc the buildings(and my new home when I get around to it).

Then, since I am an SL addict, I popped over to the Hashtag event and it’s its Birthday and we all know what that means…CAKE AND JELLY!  Sadly no but lots and lots of FREEBIES.

I only grabbed about a quarter of what was there before I gave up and TPed home and started to unpack and of course started to bin away.  As usual, a lot of the small things but that’s not a bad thing at all.  I’m just not a tattoo or jewelry wearer so more often than not I bin it without unpacking it.  I like to just grab a load of stuff from a place to get the sense of the goodies and yes there are goodies to be found.

But as soon as I unpacked this bucket of flowers it was the “money shot”.

A Beeee a cute little Beee LOL.  Non-edit but copyable.  The only reason I would edit this is I would take copies of those gorgeous flowers and scatter them around my garden but as a stand alone potted plant this is just excellent.  I will do a quick log in to find the name of the stall/shop I found this one on at the Hashtag event so you can just go and grab this but as I said there are oodles of gifts on the stands and there is nothing nicer than grabbing a whole load of stuff and then plonking yourself down and working through them and finding the pieces which make fab additions to your inven

UPDATE. I think the bucket of flowers is off the “Dreamland Design” stall which is not a name I’m familiar with so woo hoo thats a mainshop for me to check out later.  If I’m wrong about the stall just GRAB ALL of the gifts and have fun finding it.

Then I decided to quickly check the Dreamland MP shop and found even more quality Freebies.

They turned out to be just as good as I had hoped but since SL time was running out I’ve just slapped 2 of the 3 freebies down and quickly took a snap.  I saw some window boxes in the MP shop but since these come with a price tag, cheap at 50Lds though, I will when I log back into SL pop over to the inworld shop to check them and the whole shop out.

This is why sometimes a quality freebie works as it gives people a taste of what you have and they might just come over and spend Lindens in your shop.

Old, New, Cheap and Free and no I’m not talking about me! (Freebies, GG’s etc)

A whole mix of goodies which is going to make your SL home lovely and not hurt your pocket.

First is the lounging chair, male/female and couple poses.  Low primmed, cute and a FREE gift and although it’s a “Shutter field” gift you have to join the Godrics Hollow Group, which is free but the Shutter field is not but more about that later.  Since this smaller shop isn’t in the main Shutter Field shop once I’d grabbed I TPed over to check out the larger main shop.

The Shutter Field group only costs 20Lds to join and there is not only so many of the old GG’s but some new to me ones plus also some very discounted items and in this picture you can see some of everything.

I’ve shown you the food tray before, this one is the wine and steak and I think the other one is beer n burger but the game board is new.  You get 2 versions this rustic one and a beach one.

The flowers in vases are super GG’s but I went crazy for all of 35Lds and bought this small side/coffee table and yes of course I checked and it’s editable.

Another new to me GG is this coffee shelf.

Definitely not new but just so damned good they deserved to be reblogged again and again and again until Faith screams at me to “STOP”.  2 sets of planters, one inc the 2 barrels and the other the 2 metal ones and the hanging one.  Just great home and garden decor and yes, of course, editable if you really want to

I just zoomed in for a close-up.

As always popping over to Shutter Field has made my Sunday as I was eyeing up something which just wasn’t so great but I didn’t want to miss posting something on a Sunday so to find and refind these brill things means I can now log off with peace of mind and enjoy my lunch.

Have a great day and I will see ya’s tomorrow.

PS. Hunger has made me forget a few things, firstly to pick up the chair you will have to be an adult to get into that sim, secondly Shutter Feild is a row of small shops but all are stocked with Shutter Field items, the last shop has the GG’s and discounts but it also shares the sim with a similar shop so if the LM doesn’t take you to the SF Shop just walk or fly over.  Honestly easy to understand when you get there and thirdly MORE Grou Gifts are there I’m only showing you a few of them so if none of these look of any interest to you make sure to still go as there maybe something else or of course you could splash the cash because Shutter Field has some really nice stuff and I do have OMG stuff I’ve paid Lindens for!
