Well I never, quickie.(Freebies).

I was rummaging in my invent, binning this n that and tucking things away and I came across a folder of plants I previously blogged but in that folder from the same shop was also 2 boxes of “old stuff” and boy am I glad I opened them.

Usually, when stuff is “old” it’s a bit lacking but also they can give you a chuckle however in this box of old stuff I found some very interesting items.I’m just going to show you 1 item and it’s this “Candelabra Wand” and as you can see from my glowing face it’s super bright.  I didn’t rezz a copy to see how many prims it is but laid on a table it will act as a magical lamp or wear it when you’re on a hunt to light your way.  There are 2 other “wands” plus as it happens some Christmassy items TBH I’m just going to leave it to you to unpack have a chuckle, bin what you don’t want but I bet you will keep a few of them.

Don’t worry when you get there and it’s a “Rental Office”.  Lunaria is the name of this rental agency but it’s also a shop so just walk through a couple of rooms and you will find the 2 boxes on the floor in the room which has a lot of Free to join Group Gifts and it’s the plants I’ve previously blogged but there is also clothes and Lucky Boards.

PS. Why the HELL is the whole of the UK blanketed in snow and it don’t even have the slightest dusting of the stuff! I WANT SNOW!

It’s a Gacha Life.(Freebies).

When Xmas is over I’m going to have to take some blogging time off and go TRASH crazy.  It’s been another stunning year for events, gifts, freebies etc and it’s still just the start of December.  So with a heavy heart and stuffed invent I Tped over to “It’s a Gacha Life” which is a smaller Gacha fair, check out the building for more Gacha’s as I almost missed them”.

Gonna be honest and say that out of everything I saw I only took the Simply Shelby gift because LOOK AT IT!!!

Who wouldn’t want this in their home or/and garden and although not a Christmas plant those colours are definitely are.

I actually have a decent amount of items from Shelby Oliver’s shop now and the one thing I know is that her stuff isn’t just excellent but on the whole, it’s EDITABLE! Which is a really lovely thing to do because it means you can strip things down, tear it apart, shrink or grow in and in this case you can also make copies.  Only 2 prims for the whole thing but if you separate it then it’s 2 for the plant and 2 for the pot and the pot on it’s own is good enough to make copies to pop in a plant you may have but don’t have a pot to put it in.  You can change the size of the plant but I do believe that the size it rezzes in is the smallest it will go.

I’ll post this now but once I’m back inworld I will do an update with the LM for the Simply Shelby shop not just to see if there is any GG’s in her shop but also to see if there is something to buy for my new home.

UPDATE.  Looks like I will have to return to Simply Shelby on the 12th as she is having a 12 Day of Christmas event (I’m assuming it starts on the 12th though) and even though I moan about my invent I can make more space for her stuff.  Don’t worry if you’re useless at hunting like me because the note said she will make it super easy.  I did get to see what she has on offer esp for this Christmas time and lots of tempting things there.

Can you see me?(Group Gift ‘n’Bargain).

Coleen Macarthur and Kate McLagen are RL Sisters who just so happen have shops in SL.  You will probably know both the shops pretty well as Coleen owns Loordes of London and her Sister Kate owns Storaxtree.  Since both of these shops are pretty generous in offering discounts and special deals at so many events in SL you will know their brand pretty well.

When I got the notice from Storaxtree about some new 20Lds offers and this FREEBIE you know I hauled AV ass!

This whole set of books and pumpkins and emm that stone thingy in the middle is an excellent Autumnal decor item.  Although I rezzed this in an old attic, this nestled into some landscaping will make an excellent feature.  I can’t remember the exact prim count but it was pretty damned reasonable considering all the details and excellent texturing and is only something like 7-9prims.
 I then zoomed in and spotted this little fella hiding under the book.

Now can you see whats hiding in this picture?

Bottom left-hand corner tucked under a bushy Pumpkin plant is a little sleeping kitty.  You don’t just get the kitty but also the thick and lush pumpkin plant with pumpkins.  4 prims is for all of is and for that small amount a perfect garden feature for even the smallest plot.  This is the discount item of just 20Lds and there is a couple of other options in the pavilion PLUS a free Gacha which will give you a random mouthie for fun.

Ooo I know what I will be doing tomorrow and that is hunting is because I’ve just scrolled to the end of the notice from Storaxtree and at the moment there are 7 hunts going on at this moment in her shop and I’ve seen the pictures of what they are and I’ve ear marked at least a couple of them.

PS .  The group gift and offers are in the pavilion outside of the shop but the LM should take you to it.

I have it all! (FREEBIES)

Woah! So I finally got over to the Cosmopolitan event which turns out to be celebrating 5 years in SL and you know what that means?  Nope no cake but even better…OOODLES and OOODLES of gifties and even better the gifts are so good!

OK ignore the room I’m in as it’s actually a Rare Gacha win from this event, yes I do spend Lindens lol, but the rest is all freebies and I was having a very pleasant time just rezzing stuff, trying the clothes on and of course seeing what is editable and then I get the heads up that this event only has a few more days left to go!!!

So I snapped some basic piccies in my Nams setting of what I already had out so you can see the quality and yes this shabby chic/romantic fireplace is editable LOL.

It’s obvious whats what in this picture but if you don’t need any new decor items don’t worry, shoes, boots, clothes, nails, jewelry etc are all there as well and from well-known SL shops.

The dress in the top picture is from one of my fav SL shops and I loved this metallic with sheer bits outfit as well.  There was a pair of jeans as well as a halter top that I had briefly tried on and that top is a keeper for me when I refind it.

I will be logging back in-world soon to continue with my happy unpacking and sorting out but since this event is in its last few days I didn’t want to delay telling you about it.  So over all really you need to just go and join the Cosmopolitan group, invite in the entry, and click away as there are so many gifts and so many lovely surprises just waiting for you.

Update because I’ve found out we have till the 13th to get grabby so still a reasonable amount of time but at the same time don’t linger.

Things that make you go hmmm (Free gift)

Cuteness overload! The “Things that make you go hmm” hunt is underway and one of my most favourite stores Lunar Seasonal Designs is in it yay! I managed to find the gift by using the clue give (hunt blog below) and received this utterly charming patch of Lady’s mantle with a naughty leaping bunny. You can choose the colour of the blooms etc and also how frequently the bunny charges about – he leapssss and knocks over a bunch of flowers, then hides in the leaves – its dead sweet and only 5Li.

Pick it up pick it apart.(Freebie).

Even though my SL time was running out, don’t you just love it when I do a quickie cos there is less blabbing on LOL, so once I’d taken the picture of this rather good planter in my garden I had to TP to my studio and RIP IT APART!

As it comes it’s 1o prims but since this is copy/mod you can shrink it or as you can see it can be edited down to its basic build.

These come from Whims A Plenty and are out front with another GG and that’s a bird house.

I’ve left my AV stood outside this shop as the name and the shop just doesn’t look familiar to me and although there won’t be any more gifts inside I’m going to have a nice wander around later to see if there is something new for my home/sim.

OK that’s it see ya’s all later.

Whims A Plenty

I went to see GOD and was blessed with FREEBIES.

This is GOD. Am I going to Hell for the title of this post?

“Garden Of Dreams” to be exact.  This is a shop that has been in-world for as long as I have so it’s ancient but it’s nice to see that although it’s kept it’s unique approach to builds in SL it has moved on with the times.

I know Faith has a bought a few of their “Dream Scenes” and I also own a couple of the free scenes myself.  OK gonna try to explain this as clearly as poss.

You can buy individual “scenes” such as a ballroom, library, dining room, cave, space, Hell etc and you load your purchases into an installer and using the globes you simply “slip in” to them and chose from the menu which scene you want to go to and not only does this take you to the scene but in fact the scene isn’t permanently set out and as you TP it rezzes around you.  This means that you can change the space around you at one click to suit your mood.  These scenes are primmy but that’s because they come complete with everything you would want to see and use.  If you want to keep your scene out permanently then you can and then, of course, you can add any extra decor item you wish or just remember when you pack away your scene to pack the items you rezzed out before hand.

OK Clear as mud but the best way to understand what I’m blabbing on about is to try it for yourself.  You might just be able to make out the globes in the picture and you want to head for them.

Click on one of them then simply “slip inside” and out of the menu chose which the scene you want to check out and it takes you there.  You have 15 mins to check it out which is more than enough time.  You can then just slip back into the globe and check somewhere else out or return to the shop.

Don’t worry when you “stand” the globe does disappear but you will spot a white glow in the scene and you just click on that and the globe reappears again to take you to the next destination.

If you check out my last post “Sweet Poison” that picture was taken in one of the Scenes and it’s not a flat texture behind me but an extraordinary room.  If like me you’ve not been to GOD for a long time you will be trapped by checking out all the new scenes and a lot of the old classics which have stood up to the test of time.

I also believe that the more “scenes” you purchase then if you contact the management you will get a discount and they will do all the installation work, but I don’t think it’s actually hard to do it yourself but deffo check it out for the discount as they’re not cheap BUT for the quality and uniqueness a bargain.

Now for the FREEBIES cos there is a lot of them.

OK, this one has suffered from the passing of time, it’s a desert skybox.  If I had a Road Runner or a Coyote toy I would have placed them in this scene lol,  I only picked a small handful of the freebies up and that does inc a few more of these scenes which you can just rezz or use the globe.

This freebie in this picture is just the balloons.  If you’ve been over to our sim before then you might recognise this as the landing spot we have set out, of course, you’re free to wander the whole sim but this is a lovely hang out area just for you lot.

Yes, that’s Moi in the bottom right-hand corner.  These balloons are really old gifts but I think these might be updated from the ones I have as I’m sure the older version didn’t have a slow movement to them.  Doesn’t really matter as they’re only a total of 2 prims and I actually like them where they are.

The hay cart and the bales are also freebies.  The cart again suffers from primmage but those bales are more than reasonable and pretty big.  They also come with a menu which inc singles n NOOKIE ones! I also picked up a matching well but I lost that and a new large wood candle stick out of all the giftes.  You will find these on the next level up, look at my first picture and at the lower right corner you can see the stairs that take you to the next level and all the goodies at the back.

Now for the keepers.

Although in this picture I’m just showing you one of the shrubs from a pack of many I’m really pleased with them they all seem to have a very Autumnal tones.  A mix of single and ground cover shrubs and grasses and only a single prim. When we start to change our sims season these will be appearing everywhere.

The whole sim is open to everyone to come and enjoy.  It has been uniquely landscaped and covered with areas of interest and lots of lots of dancing AOs.  So a lovely way to spend a lazy Sunder, check out the shop and the scenes, grab some freebies and then spend time wanding the sim.

PS There is also a lot of sim landscaping for sale in the GOD shop.
