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.

It said “buy me” so I did.(Super bargains & mention of Freebies).

I’m not being lazy but I spent so much time at Bazar I ran out of SLing time I’m using the picture I took in the Bazar shop.

This wall hanging bike not only cost just 35Lds I do know because as soon as I grabbed it and TPed home to check it out that you get this wall version AND also a standing one and each is only 2prims!  Then I TPed back to Bazar as I really wanted to check the whole shop out and ended up buying quite a lot of the smaller decor items, ie plants, and bags and I think the most expensive item was this bike so it shows you how many bargains there are but of course they’re mainly the smaller items but check out the larger pieces as they’re most reasonably priced as well.

SPECIAL MENTION.

There is a whole wardrobe set which is so tempting to me.  You can buy it bit by bit or buy the fat pack, I would find it so handy to use as a backdrop but I do believe you can have a whole wall of wardrobes stuffed with bags, shoes, clothes for ONLY 14Prims! in your home, if you like a touch of realism to your SL life.

Then I decided to check out the builds, the TP to the rezzing platforms is to the right of the LM and it was the “new” Windmill that made me go “ooo” but of course I already own at least 1 windmill so I didn’t buy it but I was very impressed with it.  It comes with a reasonable price tag, under 1000Ld but check it out for yourself if you’re in the market for in interesting home..

PS.  The freebies have been out in this shop for quite a few years so I know for sure we have blogged them at least once, probably a few times so I won’t blog them again.  You will find them in the main entrance and there is also a dollarbie.

My Fave Words, CHEAP, DOLLARBIES, FREEBIES, COPY & MOD!

Faith did a post recently where she found some super freebies/dollabies from the MP and of course since I’m a hoarder and they were fabulous finds I not only grabbed them but I decided to check out the inworld shop called “Old World”.

At the LM there is a whole load of Dollarbies/cheapies/GG’s including these because at only 19Lds I’d say they were a super bargain.

The cat, log basket and plant are all linked and come to 4prims, the plant pots are only I believe 2 prims for the whole lot, and here is the BUTTT…yup copy & mod.

Feel free to skip this last bit esp if you’re not into landscaping etc.

I’d spent so much time wandering around the Old World shop that I didn’t have much time to play with the mod but even simply removing the plants from the pots gave me for 1 prim for each  and some pots to put my own plants in and a nice clump of very seasonal colour flowers to place at random on our sim.  With the cat one I actually only removed the plant, comes in 3 bits and those leaves make a most lovely plant.  Since I had to log out I am going to assume it will be just as easy to separate the cat from the basket.

I will be back to this shop, not today or tomorrow probably not till next year but I have the LM tucked away into a new folder I have where I put places I want to return to at a later date to actually buy something.  The “Old World” shop is geared very much to the RP, Gor, Medival, Rustic style of decor and landscaping but as always although most of it wouldn’t fit into my SL there are some fab pieces.  There is a fab small complete vegetable garden perfect for those with small plots of land or the things I really want is the broken down truck with soil and plants growing in the bed of the truck.  They do come with a price tag but I don’t mind getting spendy when it comes to decor/landscaping.  The only reason I didn’t pick them up now is that my invent will eat it.  Things go into my invent and I never see them again, it’s like a Blackhole of doom!  So if I bought them now in a week or so they will have vanished and come next season when I really could use them I’d either forgotten about them or wouldn’t be able to find them.  So it’s better just to earmark them for future purchase rather than take the risk.

Now I’m inworld LM grabbing I’ve checked and the group is only 10Lds to join and between all the Dollarbies and the GG’s you will find loads BUT I also remembered that if you walk around this shop you will see a small building with a sale sign on it and inside are some really cheap bargains.

PS.  But of course you can leave the things as they come, you know I love to rip things apart but I will be keeping those plant pots together as a little group.

Last one.(Dollarbie).

I’d also picked these cushions up whilst browsing the MP and when I unpacked them and checked out the poses I decided not only were they blog worthy I’d check out the shop inworld as well.

And I wish I hadn’t as it’s a whole sim of temptation.  The only thing that stopped me from buying is that most of the decor and planting is very tropical/summery and our sim isn’t, in fact, I’m itching to start to click a few plants and start the slow change over to an Autumnal feeling.

Although you can find this inworld you click on the box and it gives you the link to the MP so you may as well buy them off there but make sure to check the shop out inworld esp if you’re into your landscaping.

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.

Santino Design, upstairs for discounts.

Times up.(Freebie’s).

RL cannot be ignored and so in 5 mins I’m going to have to log off SL and log in to RL…damn!  So instead of rushing back and unpacking and scene setting my latest freebie I simply pointed and clicked on the plant which is already being used as a decor item on the beautiful little floating platform which the Mokka shop is on.

You get 2 shades of this Hydrangea, this “purple” one which looks pink/red to me and a blue version.  Just stunning.  3 prims to each clump but the boldness of the colours means you just need to use 1 or 2 of them to get a great impact.  This item is a free for all so just click on the board to buy for 0Lds but there are 2 food based GG’s as well……..and that’s it time to goooooooo……
